NYT Reporter: Hillary thinks it was the media’s ‘job to get Hillary Clinton elected.’ ...Well, wasn’

Sep 22, 2017 — Robert Laurie

It doesn’t happen often but when it does - when I agree with Hillary Clinton - I like to make sure everyone knows about it.  I’m fair and unbiased like that. In this case, I’m talking about Hillary Clinton’s assertion that the “press didn’t do its job in 2016.” She’s 100% right. They didn’t.

You may think I’m going to go into a rant about how the media has been giving Hillary Clinton a free pass since the 80’s, but I’m not.  That’s not the point she’s making either.  She thinks the press failed because its job was to get her elected.  She, as we all know, was not elected.  That can’t be allowed to be her fault, so the media has become one of her scapegoats.


Tucker Carlson calls out Rob Meathead Reiner over Hollywood’s collusion with China

Sep 22, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Hollywood loves China. Despite the country’s longstanding tradition of fascism, human rights abuses, and anti-American geopolitical efforts, movie studios just can’t wait to bow down before the Chinese government. A film that bombs in its native U.S. can turn a massive profit - sometimes even earning a sequel - thanks to the power of that sweet, sweet, communist moolah. In short, China spends a lot of money on movies.

...At least, it spends a lot of money on movies approved by its hyper-authoritarian censorship board.


Police report: Multiple women accused jailed IT staffer, Imran Awan, of battery, abuse, wiretapping

Sep 21, 2017 — Robert Laurie

We’re learning more about Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s favorite IT staffer, Imran Awan, and none of what we’re hearing is good.

You’ll recall that Wasserman Schultz refused to fire Awan, even though she knew he was at the center of a a criminal investigation by the FBI and U.S. Capitol Police. According to the former DNC Chairwoman, he needed protection because he was the target of a racist, bigoted, right-wing witch-hunt. Finally, after he was arrested while trying to flee to Pakistan, she reluctantly sent him packing.


Pelosi: illegal immigrants ‘did a great thing for our country’ by bringing their DACA kids here

Sep 21, 2017 — Robert Laurie

They broke our laws, entered the country illegally, in most cases use falsified documents or stolen social security numbers to obtain housing and employment, and created an immigration crisis that’s currently dividing the nation.  But ignore all that.  According to Nancy Pelosi, they’ve done us a huge favor!

You see, illegal immigrants brought their kids here - you’ll know them better as “dreamers” - and they’re just wonderful. If it wasn’t for their illegal-immigrant parents, DACA recipients wouldn’t be here, so Pelosi is grateful to illegal parents.

As she puts it, they “did a great thing for our country” by violating U.S. borders:


Hillary says she’s like ‘Paula Revere’ - sounding the alarm about how Russia cost her the election

Sep 20, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Last night Hillary Clinton brought her desperate, delusional, blame game to the Stephen Colbert show so that ‘non-deplorables’ could give it the praise she feels it deserves.  The interview was a saccharine, fawning, adulatory affair that should make any sane person feel embarrassed for the show’s host. While there, she once again dragged out her list of reasons that she was denied her rightful ascension. Misogyny, voter suppression, and James Comey all got shout-outs before she lowered the boom on her favorite target: The Russian Boogeyman.

“I believe so strongly they believe they succeeded in messing with our democracy and I just can’t abide that.”


Progressive media types seem pretty upset that Trump may not be giving ‘Rocket Man’ Kim Jong Un the

Sep 20, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Before - and during - President Trump’s United Nations address, he referred to North Korea’s “Supreme Leader” as “Rocket Man.”


First time in years, a U.S. President manages to address the UN—without trashing the United States

Sep 19, 2017 — Robert Laurie

I won’t bother listing examples, because there are so many that it would take all day.  Suffice it to say that, if you spent any part of the last 8 years watching President Obama address the United Nations, you saw a U.S. President belittle his own county.  Obama’s speeches were, almost without exception, apologetic affairs designed to acknowledge the left-wing “truth” that America is the source of all the world’s ills.

If you were among those who were utterly disgusted with it, take heart. Those days are over. President Donald Trump’s address this morning stands in diametric opposition to all of it.


UN audience audibly shocked when Trump calls socialism a ‘discredited ideology’

Sep 19, 2017 — Robert Laurie

This morning, I posted a video of the United Nations speech given today by President Trump.  If you haven’t watched the whole thing, I highly recommend doing so HERE.  However, if you haven’t got time to watch all 45 minutes right now, allow me to draw your attention to one quick snippet. Not only does it contain one of Trump’s (so far) best lines, it’s also illustrative of the inarguable fact that the UN is a big, stinking, pile of hot garbage.

The segment centers around Venezuela, and President Trump’s absolutely correct assessment of socialism:


‘Democratic Party not working’: Bernie won’t run as a Dem in 2018 - rips Hillary’s claim that he did

Sep 18, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Earlier, Dan explained how Bernie’s single-payer plan would nearly double the entire, already-unsustainable, federal budget. For anyone else, those numbers might be a sign that your loopy pet project is doomed before it even gets off the ground. For Bernie Sanders, who cares not for reality, they’re irrelevant.  He’s going to push ahead, and continue fighting for his single-payer dream.

But, despite being the man who best represents the leftist-statist mindset, he will not be pursuing his goals as a Democrat.


Bernie Interviews Canadian doctor about single-payer. She tells him about their year-long wait times

Sep 15, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Bernie has a podcast.  It’s long, it’s tedious, and it’s incredibly boring.  It’s really more an endurance test than a radio show.  I’m pretty sure it was one of thing things the US Army played at ear-splitting volumes to drive Noriega out of the Vatican embassy back in ‘89.

I might be wrong about that last point, but the rest is dead-on.  Bernie’s podcast is awful.


Senior NHS consultant neurologist: Britain’s single-payer system killing up to 130,000 elderly patie

Sep 15, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Ahhhhh… single-payer, government-run, healthcare. It’s the ultimate dream of the modern left.  As we’ve argued many times before, it’s not because they have some deep-seated desire to offer “high quality care to everyone.” It’s because it will grant them expansive new powers in the areas they love most: taxation and social engineering. There is absolutely no political issue - from gun control, to welfare, to how far you walk or drive - that can’t, in some way, be tied to the cost of health care.

Single-payer is the authoritarian statist’s holy grail because it will allow the feds to weasel their dirty little fingers into every single corner of your life.


Trump admin will extend Iran nuclear deal - continue Iranian sanciton relief ...for now

Sep 14, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Thanks to my earlier opinions on the nascent DACA deal, and judging by my inbox, Trump fans are already none to please with me today. So why not make it a double? From the “don’t shoot the messenger file” comes word that the Trump admin is set to extend the sanction relief implemented by President Obama’s “Iran nuclear deal.”

Ugh.


Hillary: Orwell’s message in 1984 is ‘we need to trust government and the media’

Sep 13, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Hillary Clinton is wrong about a lot of things.  She’s wrong on virtually every policy, she’s wrong to blame everything under the sun for her 2016 loss, and she’s wrong about each and every one of the excuses she offers for her shady behavior. Now, thanks to her new book, we know that she’s also frighteningly wrong about literature.

Specifically, she seems to think the message of George Orwell’s “1984” is ‘we need to rely on our leaders and our media.’


Pelosi seems to think the GOP will put Dreamers in concentration camps

Sep 13, 2017 — Robert Laurie

Nancy ups the crazy…

Nancy Pelosi seems to think there’s some correlation between the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII and President Trump’s decision to kinda-sorta-but-not-really rescind DACA. “They,” she claims, are “coming for” the dreamers - just as “they” did back in World War II.

Yeah, it’s the kind of ridiculous, deeply flawed, analogy that could only come from the stripped gears that power Pelosi’s thought process.


Hillary laments: Democrats are faced with a ‘Very Difficult Media Environment’

Sep 12, 2017 — Robert Laurie

I know, Hillary is over.  We don’t need any more Hillary.  But how can you ignore the gift that keeps on giving?  Somehow, every time she opens her mouth, she manages to double down on everything that led to the decimation of her campaign and her party.
