Many years ago I discovered a dirty little secret about left-wing ideologues in the Democratic Party. Yes, I know these terms are largely redundant. The few remaining Democrats who don’t fit that description are either political neophytes or hopeless optimists. They still believe the party line about protecting the poor and working class.
The dirty little secret is that when liberals don’t have an argument they can sell, rather than discuss policy, they call you names. “Racist” and “sexist” are two of the most overused.
Now, after the Kavanaugh debacle, they have been exposed. The liberals, who vowed to defeat this brilliant jurist no matter what the cost, have turned that argument back on themselves. They wanted — and still want — to convict Kavanaugh of sexual assault with no evidence simply because he is a white male. Continue reading “Look Who is Racist Now”
In my “Crazytown” column, I celebrated Trump’s most recent accomplishments. These are things other presidents should have done, but most didn’t. They just kept making the same old mistakes, hoping for different results.
One of the president’s recent moves was to cancel the scheduled pay raise for federal civilian employees. When I pointed out that recent studies have shown that federal workers, on average, are paid 80 percent more that their counterparts in the private sector, some took exception.
President Obama also recognized this disparity and instituted a partial federal wage freeze between 2011 – 2013.
It has been said there are three kinds of lies: lies, damn lies and statistics. Continue reading “Federal Workers vs Private Sector (Taxpayers Get the Shaft)”
Maxine Waters never loses an opportunity to urge her followers to keep up their harassment of members of the Trump Administration.
Last week, she took aim at the president again. “Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booted out of restaurants,” she crowed as the crowd erupted, “who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep!’”
She went on, “We’re going to win this battle because while you try and quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions (she blames the attorney general for enforcing immigration law) and others, you really don’t know the Bible…God is on OUR Side! On the side of the children, on the side of what’s right!”
Waters has never been shy about using God, the church or little children to rabble rouse in order to increase her name recognition, her coffers or advance one of her pet projects, the latest being open borders. Continue reading “Saint Maxine”
Gina Haspel, president Trump’s nominee to head the CIA, is my hero! I’ve never met the woman but from what I know about her she is the real deal — a real feminist in the truest definition of the word.
She is not the radial cheap imitation so popular with the left — the kind of feminist who says, “I want that job. I may not have earned it, but I’m entitled to it because of some liberal perfect-world quota system that says what you do is not as important as your gender, race, sexual preference, etc., etc. etc.” By the way, to be the kind of feminist acceptable to the left you also have to pledge allegiance to the right to kill one’s unborn child for any reason through the full nine months of pregnancy, including through the birth process itself.
The current queen of the anti-real feminists is Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) who first praised Haspel’s nomination and her year as deputy director of the agency saying, “I have spent some time with her … We have had dinner together. We have talked. Everything I know is that she has been a good deputy director of the CIA.” Continue reading “Haspel Fight Proves Democrats are the Anti-Woman Party”
Monday was the latest ugly demonstration by the so-called “Dreamers,” the young people who were supposedly brought here by their illegal parents as small children and, we are told, know no other country. This one was staged to mark the passing of the deadline from President Trump to end the illegal DACA program that Obama created with a stroke of his pen.
Two activist federal judges have issued injunctions blocking his order. Now we must wait for the program to wind its way up the slow as molasses judicial system to the Supreme Court. This is cruel and completely unnecessary as President Trump offered a compromise to, not only allow those DACA recipients to stay, but untold numbers of other illegal young people, even those who snuck in on their own claiming to be teenagers. Additionally, Trump is offering to give them a way to become full-fledged U.S. citizens with all its benefits and privileges, to boot. Continue reading “Where are the Patriots Among the Dreamers?

The Republican Party needs a new mascot. The elephant is no longer appropriate. An elephant is a proud, strong animal. It represents strength, wisdom, loyalty, stamina and leadership. Clearly, after last week’s cave-in to Democrats in order to achieve a long-term spending bill and avoid the possibility of another government shutdown, none of those traits apply to a party that controls both houses of Congress and the White House.
This little compromise, which added another $300 billion to the budget over the next two years, was a complete disaster for a country that is up to its eyeballs in debt and a president that was elected promising to drain the swamp. Earth to the president: The swamp feeds on tax dollars. This deal the GOP is celebrating just flooded the place and added to the stench. Continue reading “GOP Needs a New Mascot”
President Trump’s latest immigration offer is baffling to say the least. After winning a great victory over Democrats in their short-lived government shutdown, Trump appears to have caved.
Despite what the perpetual white-flag-waving Mitch McConnell said about the president’s demands for a DACA deal being unclear, they were understood by most clear-thinking Americans: amnesty for some 800,000 DACA young people in exchange for funding the border wall, and an end to chain migration and the visa lottery. All these things were enormously popular with Americans all across the political spectrum, Democrats in Congress excluded who are united on only one thing: their opposition to Trump.
So why, oh why, did Trump more than double his original offer to include, not only the DACA recipients, but another million or so who couldn’t qualify or wouldn’t bother to qualify for DACA. Furthermore, he is offering not simple amnesty: the right to stay, live and work in the greatest country on earth, but citizenship to boot. Continue reading “Dreamers, Screamers and Schemers”
How nice of the Democrats and their pro-amnesty Republican friends! They want to help President Trump sell what they hope will be his surrender on the border wall to his supporters and the overwhelming majority of Americans who want illegal immigration stopped once and for all. Their solution to his “problem,” they claim, can be found in how he defines the word “wall.”
President Clinton tried that with the word “is.” Continue reading “Are Dreamers not Worth $18 Billion to Democrats?”
Let me be clear: If Roy Moore is guilty of the alleged case of sexual misconduct with a 14-year-old 38 years ago, and the latest charge of a sexual attack of a 16-year-old, I think he should step aside in the Alabama Senate race. I also think Bill Clinton should have stepped aside or been forced out by his party when it was discovered he had sexual relations with a White House Intern —in the Oval Office no less — and that Ted Kennedy should have suffered the same fate after it was revealed that he failed to call for help for a drowning, much younger Mary Jo Kopechne.
In the case of Judge Moore and the 14-year-old, the charges against him were leveled by a troubled, dysfunctional teen and may have been unearthed and/or massaged by overly aggressive, politically-motivated reporters at the Washinton Post who went on a deep-diving fishing expedition before the Alabama Special Election which is just a weeks away. However, it is the most recent charge brought by Beverly Young Nelson, presented by dumpster-diving attorney Gloria Allred, that fails the credibility test.

Donald Trump went to Washington promising to drain the swamp. The swamp is winning. That’s because it is a lot more complicated than simply pulling the plug and watching the whole mess go down the drain.
No, the swamp in Washington is more like the fictional fire swamp in the movie “The Princess Bride.” Washington, like the swamp in this movie classic, has three elements: the fire (obvious), lighting sand (dryer and quicker than quicksand) and the dreaded R.O.U.S. (rodents of unusual size).
