British Dingbattery

Dingbattery! There's gotta' be a psychological term for delusional folks like the Manchester Mayor and other Islamic terrorist apologists. Cognitive Dissonance? Dissociative Disorder? And on a macro societal level, such disorders are, of course, suicidal? The Mayor's PC shamelessly dishonors the victims of the terrorist attack.
The mayor of Manchester says that Salman Abedi, the son of Libyan migrants who killed 22 people including children in the name of Allah, was actually not a Muslim.

How Best to Protect Refugees and Our Children

No terrorist attacks in Japan, Poland, Slovenia and Hungary. NONE! And I wonder why. Simple really. Because these countries which value the security of their children utterly reject PC strong arming to resettle refugees from Muslim countries. DUH!
Of course, needy, persecuted Muslim refugees deserve protection, but NOT resettlement. It's well past time to seriously establish well-protected and well-provisioned "safe zones" overseas. But, since such a remedy is commonsense and workable, those in the suicidal globalist Leftist circles will continue to reject such a sensible proposal. They're insane.

Exposure of Democrat Party Perfidy Inescapable

LIKE MANY OF YOU, I'm sure, I too have been carefully reading many reports of late which strongly suggest that the insidious Democrat Party apparatchiks--the Clintons, the DNC, and their unprincipled political cronies and allies--are, quite literally, awash in heinous scandals which, up to now, have been either fairly well concealed or conveniently ignored.

That said, however, I'm increasingly encouraged that the full scope of their corruption and perfidy is finally seeping through their well-crafted web of lies, deceit and disinformation. And as proof of their misdeeds are exposed to public scrutiny, the breadth of their criminality will become harder and harder to hide and cronies within will begin to crack and scurry for cover.
So, take heart, folks, I honestly believe that it's only a matter of time when the on-going investigative efforts--by both private and public entities--will converge and, in turn, lead to full and painful exposure of the Democrat Party's AWFUL lawlessness and subversion. It's not going to be pretty. It will be painful for a nation already racked by division and conflict. The exposure will likely turn the DC political world upside down. But, the sooner all the terrible truth is fully exposed the sooner we can bind our wounds and move on as a nation where Rule of Law is once again fully honored.
Our job, of course, is to remain vigilant, engaged, informed and, yes, appropriately angry. Like Gingrich recently counseled, to save America we must all "FIGHT!"

In the Battle for America's Soul, Who Will Win?

In the face of an unrelenting blitzkrieg of debilitating Lefty attacks on this Administration, Newt Gingrich offers up some timely and sobering advice to the SPINELESS GOP: “Further surrendering will destroy America as we know it. Far from making America great again, we will have yielded our country to left-wing THUGS, LIARS and INTIMIDATORS. Those of us who truly want to make America great again have one choice: Fight!”
Folks, we really are at a crossroads. Leftist tyranny and thuggery are manifestly out of control--and they're winning!
Take the time to at least telephone Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan to get off their unprincipled duffs by leading a powerful resistance against Leftist subversion of both the Administration and the Republic. Tell them to fight as if the survival of our country depended upon it--because it does!
In this toxic ideological battle for our souls, the silent and the meek will be crushed.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich didn't hold anything back... but will enough Americans listen?

Leftist Hypocrisy in a Nutshell

This sums it up very nicely.
Some words were cropped out of the Ass's comment. It should read "That just means we should keep investigating."
If this doesn't validate why Trump and the GOP must engage in TOTAL POLITICAL WAR against the Liberal weasels, nothing will. It's well past time to throttle the unprincipled, shameless Left. And while you're at it, TAKE NO PRISONERS!!!!! Enough is enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's time to pull all stops and begin intensive investigations in the Left's corruption and subversion.

What Voter Fraud and Irregularities?

The Kansas-run interstate voter registration crosscheck program recently discovered the following discrepancies:
At least 7.2 million registrations appeared in two states at once, according to the data.
Georgia (660,708), North Carolina (561,811), and Illinois (542,065) lead the 28 states studied in potential duplicated voter registrations across state lines.

More than 7 million voter registrations appear to be registered in two states simultaneously, according to data obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

California: A Profile in Progressive Insanity

Too often we scrape the surface of problems and merely deal with the symptoms of our political, cultural, economic ills. In this brief and brilliant post, Prof. Victor Davis Hanson, a California resident, offers up a chillingly concise analysis of the perils of Modern Liberalism/Progressivism by profiling the insanity of political and PC-dominated Progressive policies in that State. Take a few minutes to READ IT. Compelling and instructive.
Prof. Hanson's post underscores why...

The Unexplained Murder of a Wikileaks Mole in the DNC

THIS IS NOT A NEW STORY. In a previous post, I mentioned the unexplained murder of a DNC staffer in DC shortly after a trove of incriminating DNC emails was made public by Wikileaks last year.
Both the FBI and the DC police have access to the emails which Seth Rich, a Sanders supporter working for the DNC, had passed on to Wikileaks.
Some time ago, Wikileaks put up a $20K reward for info leading to the identification and arrest of Mr. Rich's killer. So far, defeaning silence from the Democrats and from both the DC police and the FBI. Gee, ya' don't think there's a cover-up going on, do you? Nah. Not the DC elite. They would never do anything like that, would they?
Wiki long ago pooh-poohed the Demoncrat narrative that Russia was the sole source of the DNC emails leaked to Wiki. There were also two British ambassadors who asserted that Russia was not the source of the DNC emails exposed by Wikileaks, and that they knew the DNC person actually leaking the emails to Wikileaks. Seth Rich? (Of course, there could have been other Wiki DNC moles as well.)
Where there's smoke, there's almost invariably fire, folks. And this is why the DemocRATS are doing their best to befuddle, divert our attention, obfuscate and cover up the truth.
As the article points out, this could one of the biggest political cover-ups in US history.
Something must be done to investigate this "unexplained murder" with every asset available to the DOJ and Congress. We must all push for it--including the President!
If we permit this scandal to be ignored as well, we as a nation are committing suicide and no amount of double-talk can conceal the awful reality that Rule of Law is, indeed, dead and buried.
And while we're at it, the DOJ must be COMPELLED to immediately launch a full scale investigation of the Clinton Foundation, the Hillary email scandal, the felonious leaks and unmasking, Hillary's corrupt uranium deal with Russia, and last but by no means least, the preventable Benghazi deaths. These scandals are not the creations of simple-minded conspiracists or are they politically motivated speculative theories. They are painfully real and dangerous threats to the security and welfare of this country.
Somebody in DC with spine, principle and authority must finally get off his/her dead ass and get all this done.
Left-wing media outlets including New York Times and CNN have so far failed to cover a FOX News report concerning Seth Rich and WikiLeaks.

Imperial Federal Land Seizures Continue

As I mentioned in an earlier post, the federal land grab over the years has been nothing short of breathtakingly unconstitutional! This usurpation is in direct conflict with the Constitution's "Enclave Clause".
But it doesn't stop there. For some time now, presidents have been relying on the Antiquities Act of 1906 to condone the seizure of vast amounts of sovereign State territory for the purpose of establishing "national monuments" which has the effect of denying access to and use of millions of acres of State land irrespective of the seizure's local economic impact.
The Antiquities Act specifies that designated areas must cover “the smallest area compatible with proper care and management of the objects to be protected.” The first monument created under the Antiquities Act, Devil’s Tower National Monument in Wyoming, covers 1,347 acres, less than 3 square miles. The monument covers the Devil’s Tower itself — nothing more.
But, give the feds the authority and they will surely exceed all commonsense and statutory restraints--AND with barely a hint of resistance from our spineless States, which have morphed into mere vassals of our federal lord and master.
For example, Obama designated Bears Ears Nat'l Monument which encompasses 1.35m acres (2100 sq miles!). Clinton designated the Grand Staircase Escalante Nat'l Monument, a 1.9m grab encompassing nearly 3,000 sq miles!
And nary a peep of protest from our hat-in-hand, submissive States which continue to bow and scrape before Leviathan. Sickening.
Why do I bother?

America Headed for Single-Payer Health Care.

As said before, to make sense of DC machinations I try to evaluate those political developments through a constitutional lens. For me, doing so simplifies and clarifies.
To wit, the provision of health care is within the Constitutional province of the States alone--NOT the federal government. (See Art 1 Sec 8 and 10th Amendment.) But, the Constitution is irrelevant these days. So, to keep their campaign pledge to "repeal and replace" Obamacare, Republicans in the House have, by the thinnest of margins, approved what is, in effect, Obamacare Lite.
Just to be clear, Obamacare was NOT "repealed" by the House. It wasn't really "replaced" either. It was tinkered with and rewritten to reduce costs and to improve upon patient centered health care.
Yes, it's an improvement over the costly, ham-handed, authoritarian Obamacare abomination, but any reasonable person must see that the age-old Progressive goal of government control of health care is fast becoming an acceptable goal on both sides of the aisle. (And unless we're VERY careful, it's only a matter of time before healthcare, education AND the right to self-defense are ceded by the People to our federal masters. And once surrendered, only revolution can restore them to the People.)
The people have drunk the kool-aid and don't want to surrender it. Bread and circuses are seductive and difficult to resist. Human nature.
Those of you who are familiar with the Hegelian Dialectic understand that the GOP health care bill is but a historical compromise with big government Liberal dogma. Long-term winners: Progressivism and Socialism. Oh, the Libs will whine over and lament this watered down version of Obamacare, but the hardcore ideologues among them are quietly licking their chops. The House has unwittingly vindicated the Left's Progressive agenda.
For some time now, this country has clearly been on a socialist, top-to-bottom glide path because the People, with the help of years of slick and relentless Progressive propaganda, have bought into the notion that big government is the answer. In the end, history's lessons will be ignored and Socialism will prevail until it collapses yet again.
We can hope that more thoughtful constitution-minded heads in the Senate will give this bill a harder look and render it more palatable. But I'm not counting on it.
On the bright side: Planned Parenthood has been defunded for a year. (Gee, what will those researchers out there do without PP-supplied baby parts? Curses!)
House Republicans say their bill repeals the ACA. Instead, it leaves the essential structure of that law in place.
