This Is Classy

May 13, 2017

No, hell no I don’t like everything President Trump has done. His 1st executive order banning travelers from terror hot-spots was chaos on wheels. He did not have his team together on the roll-out at all. His firing of FBI Director James Comey was clumsy. He would have been much better off calling Comey into his office and asking for his resignation. Comey’s a big boy (very big in fact, 6’8″ tall), and he certainly would have resigned without all the media meltdown.

But this I like. Hat-tip Breitbart.com. President Trump and first lady Melania Trump hosted military families at the White House on Friday to celebrate Mother’s Day.

“We want to thank you. Believe me, we want to thank you. To all of the military families here today, thank you for your daily service to your families, and equally as important, to our great, great nation. And we have a great nation, and it’s getting stronger every day.”

President Trump also gave a commencement speech at Liberty University to a record crowd of 50,000 recently where he told the graduates

“In America, we don’t worship the government. We worship God.”

Wow, how is that? It’s great is what it is. This guy sometimes shows that he does have class.

Fibby Director Comey~History

May 10, 2017

And not a day too soon if you ask me, but to be fair Trump could have told Comey personally instead of Comey seeing it on the news ticker as he was giving a speech. But Comey brought it all on himself. He’s a dweeb. I wanted to smash his face and my tee-vee every time he pulled the smug little stunt of saying he couldn’t comment on this or that because it was “classified”. Remember him saying he could not even say if the FBI leaks were being investigated? Why not?

If you’re feeling bad about his ouster here are some reasons Trump is justified in canning him besides the low moral at the FBI. Hat-tip NewsGrabien.com. BTW you can also lay these on your liberal friends or relatives who are jumping up and down mad, saying Trump only fired him because of the Russian investigation. Paleeeeeze.

  1.  The FBI was warned not once, but twice by the Russians that the Tsarnaev brothers were radicalized jihadists before the Boston Marathon bombing.
  2. The FBI was exposed in data mining on innocent Americans without the benefit of 4th Amendment warrants.
  3. The FBI had in their possession lots of material including emails sent by Major Nidal Hasan saying he wanted to kill fellow soldiers before he actually did kill 13 of them at Fort Hood.
  4. The FBI pressured Apple for a “backdoor” crack to unlock cellphones after San Bernardino terror attack despite nearly all major national security figures saying this was a bad idea, warning that such a “crack” would end up in the wrong hands.
  5. The FBI made very unusual deals in the Hillary Clinton email scandal investigation giving many of the guilty people immunity and allowing them to destroy their laptops!
  6. The father of a radical Islamist who detonated a bomb in New York City in 2016 warned the FBI ahead of time of his son’s radicalization. They interviewed him and let him go.
  7. The FBI knew of the Orlando terrorist ahead of his massacre at the Pulse Nightclub killing 49 people, but did not take the necessary steps to prevent it.
  8. The FBI had an undercover agent traveling with the Islamist who showed up to kill and maim people at the “Draw Muhammad” event in Garland, Texas, but the agent did nothing to intervene during the attack.

Buh-bye Director Comey, have a nice life. I’m sure you’ll get a sweet severance package and a book deal, but at least we don’t have to look at your smug face any more.

American Colleges & Universities In A Race To The Bottom

May 7, 2017

Take the scenario where a few high school friends get together some years after graduating and compare notes. Hat-tip Assetbuilder.com. Their higher education experiences differ as do their incomes. The high school teacher makes the least amount of money. A recent business school graduate makes a bit more. A third member of the group as a civil engineer makes even more than the first two, but there are 2 more that don’t have college degrees and they make even more than the rest of them. And they aren’t strapped with mountains of debt. One drives a Canadian National Railway freight train, the other owns a business that sells school supplies.

Keep in mind all come from similar backgrounds, their work ethic is the same, all their IQs about the same but having college degrees don’t mean these people will fare the same in the real life. You have to ask, is college worth it? And what I see going on today in our colleges points to a ‘NO’ for many people.

It’s actually worse than the high school friends above. Which institution will move the bar to the lowest point imaginable remains to be seen. These examples from American Thinker are freighting especially considering that tax dollars fund many of these institutions.

The University of California at Berkeley recently honored student Juan Prieto with an award for outstanding service to undocumented Illegal immigrant students. Juan then sent out the following tweet:  “Let’s celebrate 5 de Mayo by going to Dolores Park and beating the shit out of white people, in the spirit of La Batalla de Puebla.”

Florida Memorial University, an historic black college that produces a large number of teachers, announced it will be awarding a posthumous degree in Aeronautical Science to Trayvon Martin.

Emory University will cover tuition (100% of financial aid) for all their students that are in the country illegally.

Mira Costa College in southern California will be offering scholarships to students who say they are transgender.

My suggestion is to read and understand Mike Rowe’s 12-point pledge, find something you like and pursue it any way, other than a college setting (interning, find a mentor, go to a trade school, read, read and read some more). You’d be amazed at what you can learn on the internet and YouTube.

I would Have Preferred A Full Repeal & Then There’s Reality

May 4, 2017

The GOP House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act (the AHCA) by the hair of their chinny, chin chins with one vote to spare. This is not the terrible bill put forward six weeks ago by Lyin’ Paul Ryan and the rest of the establishment Republicans that was written by lobbyists, the insurance companies & donors, but the AHCA with 3 amendments improving on the bill which is about the best they could have hoped for given all the various groups in the Republican party that had to be satisfied.

According to The American for Tax Reform the bill abolishes the following taxes imposed by Obama and the Democrat party in 2010 as part of Obamacare:

-Abolishes the Obamacare Individual Mandate Tax which hits 8 million Americans each year.

-Abolishes the Obamacare Employer Mandate Tax. Together with repeal of the Individual Mandate Tax repeal this is a $270 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Medicine Cabinet Tax which hits 20 million Americans with Health Savings Accounts and 30 million Americans with Flexible Spending Accounts. This is a $6 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Flexible Spending Account tax on 30 million Americans. This is a $20 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Chronic Care Tax on 10 million Americans with high out of pocket medical expenses. This is a $126 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s HSA withdrawal tax. This is a $100 million tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s 10% excise tax on small businesses with indoor tanning services. This is a $600 million tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare health insurance tax. This is a $145 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare 3.8% surtax on investment income. This is a $172 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare medical device tax. This is a $20 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare tax on prescription medicine. This is a $28 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare tax on retiree prescription drug coverage. This is a $2 billion tax cut.

 Now it’s up to the Senate to do their thing. They can pass this bill as it is, add amendments or write their own bill. The latter 2 will require that the bill go back to the House to approve any changes. Keep in mind our majority in the Senate is very thin (52-48) and then we have the squirrely RINOs like McCain, Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski who can more often than not side with the Democrats.

I hope we can pull something good out of the hat!

I Am A-Okay With This

May 1, 2017

This is just a little bit cocky for my taste.

Found in possession of meth and marijuana and sporting foreign gang tattoos

Do they have to push it in our faces all the time? This fat (no worry about PC coming from me!) blob of an illegal alien slob is forcing Trump’s hand. Trump did go soft on “dreamers” despite his campaign promise to overturn Obama’s unlawful Dreamers executive order (aren’t the 2 synonymous? Obama = unlawful), granting work permits and deportation relief to over 750,000 illegal childhood arrivals (think MS-13), but Trump also promised to deport criminal illegals (aren’t they all criminal for having come North?). I know my English and grammar are terrible (too many parenthesis to read smoothly -but you get what I’m saying). Trump thankfully has been deporting criminal illegals and the above “fat-boy” is on his way out because he crossed the line from dreamer – to drug offender -to deported. Again I am A-okay with this. Good bye and good riddance.

And BTW, here is another one I don’t mind saying “adios” to.

According to Breitbart, 19 year-old Juan Manuel Martinez was arrested was for drug possession after Monterey County sheriff’s deputies found meth and marijuana in his vehicle. Martinez was also charged with trespassing, and his tattoos tie him to a local foreign criminal gang (think MS-13).

Again I am A-okay with this. Good bye and good riddance! Go Trump.

A Stroke Of Brilliance Says Greg Gutfeld

April 30, 2017

And I happen to agree. What did Trump have to gain by going to the White Correspondents’s Dinner? Absolutely nothing. It would have been was a room full of self-important hypocrites who would do nothing but run down and criticize him because he isn’t Obama or Hillary.

President Trump is way too smart to have fallen for that one. And he’s done us all a favor by highlighting what many of us have know for a long time -most of it is fake news. On the eve of Trump’s 100th day in office,according to an American Thinker article a new national poll by Morning Consult finds that more voters trust the president than the reporters covering his administration on a daily basis. And this in my opinion is a good thing!

Our Tax Dollars Incentivizing Jihadi Survivor Payments To The Palestinian Authority

April 27, 2017

Fact #1 The US federal government currently gives the Palestinian Authority more than $300 million in aid a year.

Fact #2:  The Palestinian Authority pays the families of terrorists and their survivors about that same amount, which amounts to approximately 7% of its annual budget. This is pure incentive to murder!

Fact #3:  Taylor Force, a West Point graduate who served in Afghanistan & Iraq died as a result of a brutal stabbing that also severely wounded 10 others.

Fact #4:  Bashar Masalha, the murderer was given a hero’s funeral & glorified as a martyr. His family, as is the custom will be paid an annual stipend greater than the average Palestinian earns.

Fact #5:  During the Obama era, U.S. payments to the Palestinians have averaged around $400 million per year. Under Obama the Taylor Force bill failed to receive a vote in either chamber.

For the Force family this is personal. Their 28 yr-old son, Taylor a tourist in Tel Aviv was stabbed to death while walking along the Mediterranean boardwalk promenade with friends on March 8, 2016. Luckily, the Israeli police shot Masalha to death. They don’t pussy-foot around like our mainstream media and so many pc politicians (“Gee, we don’t really know if this was an act of terror or not”), nevertheless Masalha’s family is set and will receive blood money annually.
A congressional bill called the Taylor Force Act if passed would cut off all US aid to the Palestinians it does not stop the payments. Lindsey Graham is the main sponsor in this bill (-for once he is doing the right thing and not criticizing other Republicans with his BFF, Senator John McCain).
Hopefully with our pro-Israel President, this time the Taylor Force Act will pass.
