Florida’s High School Spree-Killing—As Democrat Fundraising Opportunity

Florida's High School Spree-Killing--As Democrat Fundraising Opportunity
After a disturbed former student shot and killed at least 17 people yesterday afternoon at a Miami-area high school, the gun-grabbing Left demanded even more regulation of firearms, which, despite constitutional protections, are already the most heavily regulated consumer good in America.

President Trump expressed sympathy for the victims. “My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting. No child, teacher or anyone else should ever feel unsafe in an American school,” Trump tweeted.


The genius of Trump’s food stamp proposal: You’re not supposed to like being on food stamps

The genius of Trump's food stamp proposal: You're not supposed to like being on food stamps
If I was on food stamps, I wouldn’t like this either.

I think that’s the point. If you can’t afford to buy your own food and you need the government to provide it for you, then you get it on the government’s terms. That’s usually what happens when someone else is supplying your needs. Don’t like it? Take every available action to get off food stamps and achieve independence, at which point you can buy whatever you want at the grocery store with your own money that you earned.

NJ Dem Bob Menendez says ‘chain migration’ is an ‘obscene’ and ‘dehumanizing’ term

NJ Democrat Bob Menendez says 'chain migration' is an 'obscene' and 'dehumanizing' term. ...Despite he and other Dems using it for years
Until recently, the phrase “chain migration” was used by just about everyone to describe the process by which immigrants were bringing their families to the United States.  It was, and is, a completely benign descriptor.  It doesn’t infer race, religion, or merit.  It’s simply about method.

However, someone at Democrat headquarters decided that Dems weren’t doing enough to pander to their base.  Since their base loves to scream “racism” at the top of its lungs, it was decided that “chain migration” was suddenly a monstrous, dehumanizing, term bigots use to “other-ize” dreamers. Attacks began immediately.

Race and IQ: A High School Science Fair Project Ignites a Storm

Race and IQ: A High School Science Fair Project Ignites a Storm
We don’t know the student’s name, but we do know that he hit a nerve—in fact, he hit a whole bunch of them. Identified only as a boy of Asian descent at C.K. McClatchy High School in California, the teen’s recent science-fair project, “Race and IQ,” propounded the thesis that differences in groups’ average intelligence influence their academic performance. He couldn’t win, though, because his project was removed after parents, staff and other students became “upset” and one girl said she felt “unsafe and uneasy.” The irony?

A project on evolution would no doubt have been well received—even though an assumption of racial differences is implicit in evolutionary theory.

Valentine’s Day: Grateful Shopping for Bathroom Flooring

Valentine's Day: Grateful Shopping for Bathroom Flooring
Mary is my wife of 40 years.  A few weeks ago, we excitedly purchased a new bathroom vanity on sale.  We concluded that we should also replace the bathroom flooring.  Experiencing pain in her shoulder that got progressively worse daily, Mary saw a doctor.  The doctor’s diagnosis was a severe muscle strain and prescribed meds.

When Ellison Broke Bread With Farrakhan

When Ellison Broke Bread With Farrakhan
After publicly repudiating his former colleagues at the Nation of Islam, DNC deputy chairman Keith Ellison dined with the group’s notorious leader Louis Farrakhan and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in 2013, according to reports.

The jihadist-friendly Ellison, a Democrat congressman representing Minnesota, is a former co-chairman of the Communist-linked Congressional Progressive Caucus.

Although Ellison was not a senior Democratic Party official in 2013, now that his DNC post makes him much more than a fringe figure in his party, the meeting takes on a greater, darker significance for Democrats, putting them in bed with raging genocidal anti-Semites, Muslim terrorists, and other enemies of the United States.


Holy crap: Republicans now lead on generic congressional ballot

Holy crap: Republicans now lead on generic congressional ballot
This was not supposed to happen. And to be sure, until votes are cast in November, it can’t be said to have happened. We have a long way to go before the mid-terms.

But the punditry has pretty much been assuming for months that the normal dynamics of a mid-term election, combined with President Trump’s low approval ratings, were setting things up for a pro-Democrat wipeout so severe that chances were we’d once again have to get used to hearing the words Speaker Pelosi. As recently as December, polls of a generic congressional ballot showed Democrats with a whopping 12-point lead, which meant that when people were simply asked which party they would rather see running Congress - without any candidates’ names being mentioned - 12 percent more said the Democrats.

Trump White House: No more threatening federal funds recipients over transgender bathrooms

Trump White House: No more threatening federal funds recipients over transgender bathrooms
We often talked about this during the Obama years. One of the reasons the left is so determined to expand the scope of the federal government is that it gives them a pretext to dictate the behaviors of those who receive federal funds.

You want federal money? Then you’ll pay your employees what we say. You’ll refrain from political activity we don’t like. You will not discriminate, and discrimination is whatever we say it is.

Kirsten Gillibrand on 60 Minutes: Used to be pro-gun, anti-amnesty because I used to only know white

NY Dem. Kirsten Gillibrand tells 60 Minutes: I used to be pro-gun and anti-amnesty because I used to only know white people
Like pretty much every Democrat, there was a time when New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand loved to tell people how she was pro-Second Amendment and hawkish on immigration.  You’ve heard most of her old lines from any one of a hundred leftists - all of which you probably knew were lying. She prattled on about her family’s history of hunting, yakked about how we needed a stronger border, and generally parroted the conservative-lite line.

You heard some version of this from Obama, Kerry, Gore, Clinton, and a thousand other left-wing Senators and Representatives.

Deep State Connections: How to Frame a President

Deep State Connections: How to Frame a President
A USA Today article, that was written in October of last year, stated: “The Senate Intelligence Committee is still investigating possible collusion between Trump Campaign and Russia.” After more than a year of investigations into the phony Trump Russia collusion fairy tale, the Senate Intelligence Committee is still busy trying to dig up evidence that they know doesn’t exist. I find this troubling because the Russian collusion trail leads back to Democrats, the Hillary campaign and the Obama administration. There’s no evidence of a Trump-Russia collusion, but there’s plenty of evidence that the Trump-Russia collusion myth was a setup.

In the opinion of an awful person who sent him white powder, Don Jr. is 'an awful person'
Because nothing buttresses your moral authority quite like sending a guy’s wife to the hospital on fear that she’s been exposed to a lethal toxin. Donald Trump Jr. has been called out as an awful person by someone our present-day culture might consider a paragon of virtue:

The letter containing an unidentified substance sent to Donald Trump Jr. on Monday called him “an awful person,” NBC News reported.

Omarosa, whoever that is, freaked out because Mike Pence hears from Jesus

Omarosa, whoever that is, freaked out because Mike Pence hears from Jesus
I hardly know who Omarosa Manigault-Newman is, and it doesn’t seem worth much effort to find out. I guess she worked in the Trump White House for awhile, left in a huff and is now running around trashing the administration. She’s hardly the first disgruntled employee of a White House to do that.

But this being 2018, we now get our news about the presidency by scenes like what you’re about to see, which I’m loathe to even attempt to characterize. Apparently there’s a show called Celebrity Big Brother, and this is what it’s like? And there are enough people who watch this that it remains commercially viable on a major broadcast network.

I’m not sure how you find Mike Pence scary after sitting and pondering that fact. But that’s our culture, so here we are:

MSNBC: Democrats have no message, no messenger, and no money

MSNBC: Democrats have no message, no messenger, and no money
In case you didn’t know, there’s supposedly a blue wave coming. No one seems to know where it’s coming from, but the media is obsessed with it. The GOP is going to be destroyed in November because everyone is so, so, so angry about Trump. 

I’ll be the first to admit that there have been quite a few high-profile GOP resignations recently and, yes, that’s usually not a good mid-term sign. But still, I’m unconvinced. Maybe it’s because the polls gave Hillary a 97% chance of winning in 2016.  Perhaps it’s because there’s not a single prominent Democrat that’s stepped forward to make a compelling case for themselves or their party. Possibly, it’s because I’ve seen how dismal Democrat fundraising has been.

Mulvaney: I told Congress to get spending under control, and it ‘pounded the hell out of me’

Mulvaney: I told Congress to get spending under control, and it 'pounded the hell out of me'

Mick Mulvaney isn’t a recent convert to fiscal sanity. He pushed it in Congress, and he’s pushing it now as OMB director in the Trump Administration.

But he is new to the experience of coming at it from the executive branch, and he couldn’t have been surprised when Congress responded to pleas for taxing/spending common sense as Congress usually does.

I would have expected that one reason for Mulvaney’s appointment was that he would be expecting Congress’s resistance to fiscal sanity, and would be uniquely positioned because of his experience there to successfully push back against it. Apparently that is not the plan at the White House:
