Pres. Donald J. Trump’s declaration during a television interview on the Fox Business Channel signaled the deployment of Carrier Strike Group One to the Korean Peninsula in response to North Korea’s bellicose rhetoric and upcoming missile test. The Navy canceled a series of port calls for the strike group earlier this month and diverted the ships to the Korean Peninsula in a show of force against the hermit kingdom.
During a week of contentious trade issues between Canada and the United States, it was gratifying to see that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Donald Trump actually did agree on one point—climate change was not even worth mentioning in their official Earth Day statements.
Bill C-16 is intended to add the terms “gender identity” and “gender expression” to the Canadian Human Rights Act. The Bill also “amends the Criminal Code to extend the protection against hate propaganda set out in that Act to any section of the public that is distinguished by gender identity or expression,” leading many to believe it will lead to a severe restriction of open public discourse on this topic once the bill is passed.
Please, have pity on me—I just can’t get the old terms out of my mind. Canada Post is now controlled by a president, CEO, and other highly-paid functionaries that certainly deserve the full support of the citizenry. Not to forget, the daily “health-exercises” of trekking to the community mailboxes to retrieve our dose of donation-seeking “Dear Friend/Supporter” letters and the like.
An essay in the opinion section of the NY Times dated 4/28/17 and titled “America, From Exceptionalism to Nihilism”, set me thinking and suggested the title I assigned to my essay in response, the one you are now reading.
The great Jim DeMint is being given the bum’s rush at the Heritage Foundation for being a conservative in thought and deed, according to Politico. DeMint, formerly a Republican senator representing South Carolina, took over as Heritage president in April 2013.
How, you ask, can we be at risk of a government shutdown? Republicans control the House, the Senate and the presidency. All the Republicans have to do is hold together and they can avert a shutdown, you reasonably assume.
It seems like months ago now - wait, it was months ago - that the one-foot-out-the-door Barack Obama was pushing through as many executive orders as he could in an attempt to lock in liberal policies after he left office. One of the worst, which we reported at the time, put severe limits on offshore drilling in the Atlantic and Arctic oceans - and there was some question as to whether President Trump would have the authority to reverse the orders once he took office.
Some fears are good. Today we live in a world of tv-zombified simpletons who don’t recognize the wisdom that grew from the analogy of a youngster touching a hot stove. The punch line that flowered from that tiny proverb, of course, is that the child learned the hard lesson of not touching whatever experience warned him not to touch. Simple enough.
We’ve finally arrived to the very bottom of that desolate hell hole where saturation propaganda rules the chattering classes; nowhere to go but down in that fearful place where just to be safe from physical harm, everyone MUST demonstrate an all-consuming hatred for President Donald J. Trump.
America, you’ve got a problem: Organizing for Action (OFA)—the organization and community organizing project that advocates for the agenda of “FORMER” President Barack Obama—founded after Obama’s re-election, sent out an email blast this morning from “PRESIDENT Barack Obama, April 24, 2017.” A poisonous play on words put into use by the group that seeks to mobilize supporters in favor of Obama’s legislative priorities; a lie getting around the world before the truth can put its pants on.
The curse of Marxist Revolution is upon us with the return to the pubic spotlight of Private Citizen FORMER President Barack Obama at the University of Chicago where he will fill the ranks of the Revolution by luring university students into lifelong Community Organizer duty.
Here we are folks, 100 days into Trump’s presidency. My NeverTrump friends are still itching for Trump to betray us so they can say, “I told you so.” Well, if Trump betrays us tomorrow, we are still winners; light years down the road to making America great again than where we would be had another Republican won.
BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation, joined by several other groups and individuals, today filed a lawsuit in federal district court in California, challenging that state’s law prohibiting the possession, use or acquisition of so-called “large capacity magazines,” calling the ban “hopelessly vague and ambiguous.”
On Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu adopted a new strategy for managing Israel’s diplomatic relations with the West. Long in the making and increasingly urgent, Israel’s new strategy is very simple. Foreign governments can either treat Israel in accordance with international diplomatic norms of behavior, or they can continue to discriminate against Israel.
If they act in accordance with international diplomatic norms, Israel will respond in a like fashion. If they choose instead to discriminate against Israel and treat it in a manner no other democratic state is treated, Israel will abandon diplomatic convention and treat foreign governments as domestic critics.
Here’s a warning for taxpayers already frustrated with corporate welfare directed to the aerospace and automotive sectors: selected energy companies are also increasingly in receipt of taxpayer cash, and the reasons offered up are often environmental in nature.
I’m not sure why this took so long. Maybe the young, fresh, face of the Democrat Party, Bernie Sanders, is getting slow in his old age. Whatever the reason, the old socialist coot of the Senate dawdled while Elizabeth Warren was letting everyone know how ‘troubled’ she was. She was vexed, obviously, by former President Barack Obama’s decision to accept a whopping $400,000.00 for one Wall Street speech.
When Bill O’Reilly left Fox News he declared, “I am very confident the truth will come out and when it does I don’t know if you are going to be surprised, but I think you are going to be shaken as I am.” Some observers think he was referring not to the sexual harassment allegations against him, but to behind-the-scenes maneuvers by one of Rupert Murdoch’s sons, James, and his very liberal wife, Kathryn.
Earlier this week, I pointed out the Barack Obama is a filthy one-percenter. That’s nothing new, of course. He’s been getting rich - by selling class warfare rhetoric and claiming the “rich don’t pay their fair share” - for years. Still, considering what a big issue Hillary’s speaking fees were in the last election, I wondered when we’d hear from Bernie Sanders.
Remember when it appeared that, contra a certain U.S. president and his “JV team” talk, ISIS was going to overrun the entire Middle East with virtually no resistance? Remember the harrowing stories of Iraqis gathering on a mountaintop waiting for someone to come and rescue them before ISIS showed up and set them on fire or committed some other murderous atrocity?
Pro tip: At some point, every president thinks this thought. Bastards.
The difference between President Trump and the others is that they don’t think it would be wise to say so publicly - either because they think it will cost them politically or because they genuinely don’t want to erode the public’s trust in the free press.
This story is a good example of how politicians use phrasing to disguise what they’re really doing, and the media play along because they support the obfuscation agenda. In some cases it’s because the media really are that dumb and gullible, but the gullibility usually stems from their natural trust of Democrats - so it all comes back to the fact that they share the same agenda.
