More mischief from US Federal judges & mistreatment of women

December 1, 2018

Each week that goes by it seems there is another Trump ruling struck down or overturned by a federal judge, with a lifetime appointment I might add! This time it wasn’t a Trump ruling, but I am sure he’d rule against it if he could. I’m talking about female genital mutilation. A federal judge in Detroit (which has the largest Muslim population in America) recently ruled that the ban on Female Genital Mutilation passed by Congress in 1996 is unconstitutional. WTF?

It’s a barbaric practice among Muslims where they cut the genitals of young girls to make sure they never enjoy sex. In some communities the procedure is carried out with razors, glass or scalpels. It’s fraught with many problems involving hemorrhaging, infections, difficulty with childbirth later in life, trouble urinating and many more.

This is done without consent of the child or even knowledge of what is being done to her or why. Parents, yes even mothers of these children are all in.

Free speech in Canada died today. Trudeau to pay “selected trusted” sources in the media.

November 26, 2018

Hat-tip Michelle Rimpell via Twitter. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau just announced a $600M initiative to give money to “journalists” who are “trusted sources”. Criteria to be set by people appointed by Trudeau. The goal is to protect an independent press. What? How do you have an independent press if you’re feeding the journalists?

This is terrible. As Michelle says, think about the states where the government owns the media. China & Russia for a start. WTF?

What’s more scary is that CNN commentator Carl Bernstein (of Woodward & Bernstein’s Watergate fame) favors recording, censoring and then releasing their sanitized version of President Trump’s press conferences . . . . because they’re all lies and propaganda. See that short video here. This is not so much different that what Prime Minister Trudeau is proposing except Bernstein’s version of protecting free speech would cost CNN and not taxpayers. But either way, we’re all losers.

Look we’ve turned into Cuba & Venezuela

October 19, 2018

It’s hard to remember what America used to be like. We are turning more and more toward Socialist ideals -and that’s just what they are ideals -utopia in fact. Socialism has been tried over and over and failed over and over with the accompanying death of MILLIONS of people. And yet more and more people either currently in office or candidates seeking office espouse the virtues of “medicare of all”, free college, guaranteed minimum income and the rest of it. The anti-capitalism being fed to public school & college students is part of the reason, but it will not end well.

This sideshow at the United Nations -a U.S. sponsored campaign aimed to criticize the human rights situation in Cuba could just as easily be an Antifa mob at President Trump’s inauguration, college students shouting down conservative speakers or the Democrats protesting Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Remember all you anti-capitalists, capitalism has lifted more people out of poverty WORLDWIDE than any thing else.

If you really want to help the poor, stand up for capitalism.

What the left can screw up for the rest of us

October 8, 2018

Columbus Day celebrating the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492 has been tossed to the dustbin of history. We can no longer celebrate Columbus Day, it’s now Indigenous Peoples Day because of Columbus’s enslavement and exploitation of native people. According to the Washington Post, Columbus Day has been a federal holiday since 1934. But numerous cities and states have ditched celebrating it since 1992, when Berkeley, Calif. (where else??), became the first city to rename the holiday Indigenous Peoples Day in favor of recognizing Native Americans.

Of course evil never rests. The left has just spent the last few weeks demonizing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his family and friends because of their obsession that Roe v Wade would be surely be overturned if we got another conservative on the highest court.

When that didn’t work and it looked like he was going to get confirmed they went for the jugular in the form of false sexual allegations. Trouble is they piled on and each allegation designed to create more doubt just pissed people off more. They didn’t win the battle but they managed to sully the entire nomination process, the Senate and themselves in the process. The latter is the only good thing about it. They may have kicked the beehive of otherwise Republican mid-term apathy that will come back to bite them. And I hope it does!

So what else can they wreck? Unfortunately there is no end to this madness.

This is what it’s come to folks.

September 24, 2018

Our culture, our decency, the mere thought of hearing an opposing opinion it’s all dead. Gone and destroyed by the progressive left.

Protestors in the Hart Senate Building

They want to protect abortion so badly they will stoop to any level and they have. And who really believes Brett Kavanaugh is gonna jump right in there and overturn Roe v Wade? I’ll be the first to say it was a bad ruling in from the get-go (should have been left to the States per the 10th Amendment!), but that’s not how the courts work and they’ll never overturn it. It ain’t gonna happen.

They are willing to burn down all of our sacred institutions (public education, family, Christianity, marriage, free speech, religious freedom and on and on) to get their way. I’m not sure what it is they want, but they’re well on their way to destroying another American institution.

Once the 2nd accuser floated to the surface like the turd she is, the Senate Judiciary Chair, Chuck Grassley, should have got a clue. This is an orchestrated attack to keep control of the Supreme Court so they can keep right on nationalizing social issues. And isn’t it too bad the Republicans don’t have a spine nor a single pair of nads in the entire group?

And if any of you have young boys you better start schooling them for the future. This is gonna be the playbook strategy for defeating any male opposition at any level for any reason. They want us all to become dykes and don our pussy hats whenever we don’t get our way. Sorry, I’m not gonna do it. Oh and BTW it’s all about destroying this presidency. Everything from the NY Times, Washington Post, the media or the left in general must be seen through that lens. Trump wasn’t supposed to get elected so their #! goal is to destroy him.

If this keeps up Trump could be the last democratically elected president. Hat-tip Armstrong Economics. From here on out, it could be more what Joseph Stalin boasted – elections are not decided by the votes, but who counts the votes.

Bad Governance Based on Good Intentions

May 23, 2018

You cannot get any more leftist, Dimocratic (not a typo!), progressive or re-distributive than Seattle, Washington, but this is really over the top. Hat-tip the Daily Wire from an article titled “How To Destroy a Major City”. Amazon, Microsoft and Starbucks will soon be paying yet another punitive tax – a “head tax” a for every employee ($275) charged to major companies to combat homelessness. Talk about driving businesses away, what are they thinking? Amazon is now rethinking their plans for expansion into new areas. The City Council can’t get enough of citizens’ money to give to someone else. First it was the $15 minimum wage law and though the reported effects are mixed depending on who did the study, most restaurant owners admitted they did have to raise menu prices and add a service fees in order to keep hiring levels the same. Now Seattle is looking at another huge property tax increases after a 17% bump in 2017.

Meanwhile Seattle has spent billions on useless light rail that not enough commuters will ever use. By the way, the light in light rail refers to the very common low ridership. It’s great for shipping freight, but not people. Costs continue to exceed estimates and ridership nearly always underperforms. According The Hill,Trump’s preliminary budget in 2017 calls for eliminating all federal funding to Amtrak’s national network and $499 million in cuts from the TIGER grant program, which also funds passenger rail. On the other hand, those who support government rail claim to be about progress – yet in the case of passenger rail – they want the government to force taxpayers to subsidize an 18th century technology that more than 95 percent of motorists don’t want or use.

But back to the liberal destruction of major cities. They also waste money on such things as bike lanes and rental bike programs that continually fail. Free (no such thing!) preschool is never far from their lips and free community college tuition to high school graduates is another feel-good favorite. This folks is how you destroy a major city. 48% of Americans in a recent poll were in favor of a guaranteed minimum wage. They point to Finland, but what they don’t say is that Finland has scrapped the idea after 2 years. This will destroy our country. If you think socialism is a good idea please get the hell out and go to Cuba or Venezuela where they have lots of good ideas like this.
