MSM BLINDNESS

Here’s my problem with the MSM Nazi story and the glorification of the alt-left opposition.  Yes the neo Nazi’s are despicable assholes, but let’s take a look at the their opposition.  The Antifa idiots,along with the rest of the left, including Linda Sasour, are all Islam loving, Jew hating “Nazi’s”.  They are part and parcel of the BDS — boycott, divest and sanction — crowd.  So how are these folks who are pushing for the annihilation of Jews and Israel supposedly superior to the Nazi slum?  I guess if you’re a communist or anarchist whatever hatred you spew is good.  MSM, get your shit together and consider what you are supporting.

And as I have said many times, why are Jews supporting those who want their destruction?

CHARLOTTESVILLE

I had planned to ignore the obvious bias of the coverage on this debacle, but the coverage from the left and the right has been so ludicrous and one sided that I must comment to point out the hypocrisy.  First, Trump’s first statement was just fine.  He called out the both the alt-right and the alt-left.  That was entirely appropriate.  Both are despicable!

Unsurprisingly, both the left MSM and Dems went ballistic because you’re not allowed to point out the violence of the alt-left.  Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the New Black Panthers (given a pass by Obama and Holder for outright voter intimidation) are all violent organizations.  Let’s not forget Ferguson, Berkeley, Dallas and Baltimore to name a few.  What is truly surprising to me is the cowardice of the swamp Republicans.  They jumped on the only one side is violent bandwagon.

Now to be perfectly honest, I would have preferred Trump to have called out the KKK and white supremacists explicitly.  But he should have also explicitly called out at least Antifa also.  And you have to know that I would have loved to hear him not only condemn the KKK but point out to Schumer and Pelosi and Maxine Waters that the KKK was set up by post Civil War Dems as the enforcement arm for their Jim Crow laws.  Quit giving the Dems a pass on their racist roots.

The other thing I would have loved for Trump to do would have been to call out the Democratic politicians who had the police stay out of the fray so that the alt-left could engage in mayhem, just like in Ferguson, Baltimore and Berkeley. According to what I’ve seen, the left started the violence and the police were part of the problem.  Eyewitnesses said that if the police had removed barricades to the north of the park, the alt-right idiots could have left without confrontation.  Instead they were forced into a gauntlet of Antifa thugs resulting in the mayhem with which we are all familiar.

One thing completely ignored in virtually all the reporting is the fact that the alt-right idiots had the Constitutional right to have their march.  This is protected First Amendment activity. The sensible thing would have let them march and ignored them.  But that would have not furthered their violent and anti-free speech agenda.  The First Amendment stands for the proposition that not only do you have the right to voice your opinions, but those who you utterly deplore and with whom you you vehemently disagree also have the right to express their stupid opinions.

Back in the late 70’s a Nazi group wanted to march through a neighborhood in Skokie, Illinois that contained a significant number of Holocaust survivors and the Supremes said that was their constitutional right.  If you ignore nonsene like this it has no impact.  Making a big deal of it gives these idiots credibility with the ignorant.

Lastly, I am sick and tired of people on the left and right claiming Trump was too slow to condemn the KKK etc.  Where were these idiots when Obama refused to call out Islamic terrorists when they murdered people at Fort Hood, San Berandino and Orlando while shouting Allahu Akbar.  You spineless Republicans are just as bad.

DRAIN THE SWAMP!!

TIME TO LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD

All right, I’ve said this before but with Mueller empaneling a grand jury, it’s time for Trump to start the counteroffensive.  First, he needs to get Sessions to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Clinton emails, the pay to play involving Hillary as Secretary of State and the Clinton Foundation– particularly given the recent revelations by Judicial Watch about emails from Huma — the illegal unmasking of Trump associates by Obama lackeys Rice, Powers and Rhodes, the obstruction of justice by Comey, Bill Clinton and Lynch, and Comey’s illegal leaks of government documents which may have contained classified information.

The special prosecutor should also look at Comey’s relationship with Mueller and any and all contacts between them concerning Trump.  To make it even more dangerous for the Dems, the SP should be specifically tasked to investigate the failure of the DOJ to empanel a grand jury for the Clinton email criminality; the unnecessary granting of immunity to close Clinton associates engaged in criminal activity regarding both the emails and the Clinton slush fund; and Comey’s agreement to destroy evidence as part of those bogus immunity deals.  Let’s not forget that had DOJ empaneled a grand jury, they could have subpoenaed the laptops etc., and then maintained them for future use in a criminal prosecution.  Also make it clear that Obama’s illegal forwarding and receipt of classified information to and from Hillary’s illegal server is up for investigation.  Also the SP should look at collusion between Clinton and the Ukraine.

Lastly, Trump needs to have Rosenstein confine Mueller to the time period between Trump’s announcement that he was running for president and the vote last November.  That is the limit if you’re seriously looking at collusion with Russia.  If Rosenstein won’t do it, remove him and replace him with someone who will.

I know the MSM will go batshit crazy but screw them.  Either we have a country of laws or a banana republic.  How can they seriously complain about a legitimate, independent investigation of Hillary’s criminal activity!

TWO THINGS

First, if any of you haven’t seen the exchange between Stephen Miller of the Trump administration and Jim Acosta of fake news CNN over a legal immigration proposal supported by Trump, look it up on YouTube.  Miller totally eviscerates Acosta, at one point, calling him ignorant–which does a disservice to ignorant people.  Apparently, Acosta never heard the old adage that it is better to remain silent and have people think you’re stupid than to open your mouth and prove them right.  He just kept opening his mouth and digging a deeper and deeper hole.

Second, Tucker blew it again.  He had some leftist radio host from San Francisco on who, among other things said blacks were held back by Jim Crow laws and Tucker didn’t say you mean the laws put in place by Democrats — known as Dixiecrats —  who set up the KKK as their enforcers?  Quit giving the Dems a pass.

EBONI K WILLIAMS, BRAIN FART OR BRAIN DEAD?

Today on the FN Specialists during a segment on an agreement between ICE and Texas which allows Texas law enforcement officials to check the immigration status of anyone they arrest and if they’re here illegally hold them for ICE.  EKW said that might be good in Texas but won’t work in CA or NY.  Her answer was to greatly increase the size of ICE and she gave two reasons for her position, neither of which made any real sense, and no one called her on it.

First, she said that illegal immigration was a federal issue and not a local one.  While that may be correct from a legal viewpoint, it’s a non-answer answer.  ICE is not going to be arresting people for violations of state and local laws.  Therefore, if local law enforcement isn’t going to check immigration status, you can have as many ICE employees as you want and it won’t have any affect on the problem.

Second, and this is the part that was really offensive and at least should have been responded to by Bolling, EKW said Trump ran on job creation and so he should accomplish that by adding more ICE  employees.  Really!!  If increasing the size of the government is viewed as great job creation, then Obama did an outstanding job.  That’s not the job creation Trump ran on or we want.  We got into the swamp with exactly this kind of stupid thinking.  You can’t drain the swamp by growing it!

TRUMP HAS PUT FORTH SEVERAL GOOD IDEAS, NOW IT’S TIME TO DELIVER

Recently, after Democratic Senator McCain once again demonstrated his true colors, media and attention whore, by going back on all his campaign pledges and public statements and defeating Obamacare repeal attempts, Trump put forth a few options, 2 of which are in his control, to sink what’s left of Obama’s signature debacle.

First he can withhold insurance company bailout payments which have been found to be unconstitutional and that would pretty well sink Obamacare.  In doing so he should direct Sessions to withdraw the Obama administration appeal of that decision, thereby ending the case.

Second he should direct OPM to stop subsidizing Congress and Congressional staff for much of their Obamacare premiums.  Remember, in a grandstanding move, the Dems removed the legislative branch from normal coverage under federal employee plans like I have and forced them to walk the walk in the exchanges.  Sounded good to start with but of course, once the law was passed, Obama through his OPM bailed them out by picking up most of the tab.  This was strictly an executive decision and can be reversed by Trump.  Do it and let’s see how wonderful the Dems and their fellow travelers think Obamacare really is.  Let McCain have to pay an additional $20K/yr and probably end up owing $30K or more after his surgeries — or maybe he could go to the VA for the wonderful care he’s assured that our vets get.  Without special preference, which you know he’d get, he’d die before he got to see a doctor.

The beauty of the the above is that it would force the hypocrites, on both sides of the aisle, to act or suffer the consequences personally.

The other thing he wants is an end to the filibuster in the Senate.  You know I’ve been advocating that for sometime, but he made the great point that there is no doubt that should the Dems regain control of the Senate they would immediately abolish the filibuster.  Thus the Republicans are only hurting themselves with the delusional idea that it would help them in the future if they lost control.  McConnell, get real or get out.  Abolish the filibuster once and for all and let a majority of the people we elected carry out what we put them in to do.  The losers shouldn’t be in control.  If you continue to let them, you should be fired.

Lastly, all the Republican traitors who voted for a clean and complete repeal of Obamacare when Obama was pres and they knew he would veto and then ran on the same issue and now with Trump ready to sign turned tail, exposing their hypocrisy, need to be targeted in their next primary and shown the door.

ONE MORE TIME

I am sick of all the talking heads saying that the Republicans have both houses of Congress and the presidency and therefore they are to blame for not fixing Obamacare.  As I’ve said repeatedly, because of the stupid filibuster rules in the Senate, they need 60 votes to do anything.  Instead of arguing about what can fit into “reconciliation”, it’s time for the nuclear option.  Get rid of the stupid filibuster rules and use the nuclear option.  Make the Senate subject to majority rule, as it should be. The will of the voters should not be thwarted by stupid rules that are not required by the constitution.

Now to be honest the Republicans are to blame because they only need 51 votes to change the rules like they did for Supreme Court nominees and Harry Reid did for all other presidential nominees.  But I want to see conservative talking heads to get real and start hammering on the nuclear option.  As I’ve said before, this is a rare opportunity, maybe once in a lifetime, to undo the damage done by multiple swamp creature administrations on both sides of the aisle.

GREAT IDEA

Came across a great article recently by Kurt Schlichter in Townhall in which he sets out a great way for Trump to take charge of the Russia witch hunt.  The link is below.

https://townhall.com/columnists/kurtschlichter/2017/07/24/trump-needs-to-be-smart-about-how-he-fires-mueller-n2358768

The basic idea is to write a public letter to Mueller setting out that he is president and Mueller is a subordinate official in the executive branch.  He would then give Mueller 3 days to explain in writing why he shouldn’t be disqualified from his position given his close personal and professional relationship with Comey and Comey being the person accusing Trump of obstruction of justice in a his word against Trump’s scenario.  I can assure you as an attorney that this clearly would disqualify Mueller under the applicable DOJ regs.  My only problem at this point is that Schlichter didn’t also point out and demand a response to conflict created if Mueller does his job which would require him to investigate Comey for his conversion of federal records for personal use and then illegally leaking them to the press through a friend.  It is my understanding that the leaked documents contained classified info although Comey claimed to have written them to avoid putting in classified information.  Mueller can’t possibly claim there isn’t the appearance of a conflict of interest in being the one investigating his buddy.

Schlichter then goes on in the letter to have Trump require Mueller to explain how picking a staff that is comprised overwhelmingly of attorneys who gave max donations to Dems and Hillary and none of whom contributed to Trump doesn’t appear to create the appearance of bias and undermine the integrity of of his investigation.

Lastly, and this is the part I really love, Trump’s letter would give Mueller until Halloween to conclude his investigation and terminate his appointment on that date to keep this phony investigation from forever and endlessly expanding to the detriment of the public purse and undermining the president’s ability to do what he was elected to do by constantly and illegally leaking one baseless allegation after another.  Why I particularly like this approach is that Trump doesn’t actually fire Mueller, rather he demands an explanation of why Mueller and his staff shouldn’t be disqualified by obvious conflicts and then sets a term limit on Mueller’s appointment after which DOJ will take over anything that’s left since it should never have relinquished its authority in the first place as there was no criminal investigation–just a counterintelligence investigation which is not criminal and thus cannot serve as the basis to appoint a special prosecutor.

Anyway, please read the article.  It will probably take you less time than you spent reading this rant.

HEALTHCARE

The healthcare debacle needs to end.  As I have said previously, it is time for a straight repeal that would take effect in 9 months.  This would  accomplish two things.  First, any Republican in Congress who votes against it would be exposed as a fraud and needs to be targeted in their next election by a true Republican.  Second, it would force both sides to get serious and fix the mess that is Obamacare.  Competition across state lines is way overdue.

Let’s get serious, the only people hurt by a repeal are people who are getting free coverage under Obamacare.

Now let’s talk about pre-existing conditions.  States need to set up pools to help these people.  Insurance is not relevant.  Listen, if you have a condition that requires $100K/yr, paying $2000/yr in insurance is winning the lottery not insurance.  Insurance is designed to cover future unknown contingencies, not known problems.  Pretending that people without insurance who have serious medical conditions should be able to buy insurance like and at the same cost as healthy people is nonsense.

I’m not insensitive to the plight of these people, but the answer lies with states making sure they don’t fall in the crack, not by making everyone else pay exorbitant insurance rates!
