Mike Pence's Son Attacks Peaceful Protestors, Resists Arrest

Tim Kaine's son Woody Kaine charged in Trump rally protest:

Oh wait, it was Tim Kaine's son and it was right up good old St Paul last March -- I didn't even know, which I'm SURE would be the case if it HAD been Pence's son!

Sounlds like some great folks ... people simply marching in support of Trump, this group maces some of them in the face, pushing, screaming at them and then trying to flee and resist arrest violently.

Lovely. Hopefully some tin tray time in store -- be nice if we were more aware of the sort of thugs we "deploreables" are up against!

The Office Of Ecclesiastical Purity

Reading this article gives a little bit of insight into why even SKIMMING the swamp in DC is a task of difficulty levels that defy imagination.

There are few better examples than the EPA post of Scientific Integrity Official. (Yes, that is an actual job title.) The position is a legacy of Barack Obama, who at his 2009 inaugural promised to “restore science to its rightful place”—his way of warning Republicans that there’d be no more debate on climate change or other liberal environmental priorities.
When the State **IS** the "church" and one of it's major tenets is faith in "Anthropogenic Climate Change" ...  I still await the "offical encyclical" which replaces AGW "Anthropogenic Global Warming" with the more current ACC, since ANY differnce in "weather or climate" (interchangeable when used by proper "scientists") is now assumed to be anthropogenic.

The huge CA drought was due to ACC, now the heavy rains are also due to ACC. We assured that AGW caused Katrina and that we would be breaking hurricane records until it cooled -- only then we broke records for NOT having hurricanes, which was attributed to ACC. From heavy snows to no snows, or from record breaking cold to record breaking warmth are due to ACC. What part of "change" is it that you are missing?

More weather instability is due to ACC as is more stability (like droughts lasting years). ACC explains everything!

When you run a religion (especially one without a Living God) keeping your message pure is critical. Apostates, heretics, deniers, and other vermin must be rooted out at all costs, and if possible made to suffer. Certainly this has been well understood since ancient times, so it is no real surprise to see it ongoing in the case of "The Party" (TP-D) and it's State Religion of "Progressiveism (regressiveism)".

You have to love the left -- they pull no punches and there is no amount of other people's money that they will not spend in their cause -- and why not. It has always been so for true believers.

BO vs Trump, A Case Study

A little long, but well worth the time. I've covered most of it, but Hanson lays it out very well showing why is an accomplished "somebody" writer and I am a nobody. Lots of it is worth the time ... a teaser.

Obama was degreed but not educated; he could not pronounce “corpsmen,” had no idea how many states there were in the Union, and thought Hawaii was in Asia and the Falklands Islands off the coast of India. The media demurred — based in some cases on the finery of Obama’s pants crease or his rhetorical ability to cause electrical sensations in one’s leg — and announced him a god, the smartest president ever to enter office. Obama himself in 2008 buffoonishly announced his power to lower global temperatures and the seas, and declared himself more adroit than all his own political handlers and aides in all of their respective jobs.

Anonymity, Not Interested

"... according to two current and two former officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private communications with the president."

I've reached the end of any interest in "anonymous". If they don't have a person with a name that it can be attributed , I have LESS than no interest. The "former officials" would be BO officials. They have bad things to say about Trump? REALLY? And they are not willing to be named? What the hell, they would be HEROES! 

So why not make up some specific text of "collusion"? I've long suspected that the "Dan Rather memo" was in in house CBS sting that they got caught at. I mean can't the Deep State just produce a "transcript" and say the digital call record was "lost"? Heck, the IRS "lost" 24 THOUSAND e-mails to save the IRS when they targeted conservatives. ANYTHING can be "lost" in the Deep State. 

What part of NO FAITH AT ALL in government is it that is hard to understand? Do I "trust Trump"? Not really -- I don't really "trust" anyone that would take a job in BOistan government. 

Why DO we even allow "anonymous sources"? If we all quit accepting ANY media story that credits such against ANY target as anything but fiction, we would all be better off. 

Wishful thinking I know -- we are WAY too tribal for that, and it helps sell media.

Pirsig Passes

Uneasy Rider Won Acclaim for ‘Zen’ Novel but Yearned for Respect From Philosophers - WSJ:

"Mr. Pirsig died April 24 at his home in South Berwick, Maine. He was 88."

A freshman college writing course included reading and discussing "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintainence".  I found it to be an interesting book -- bit of shallow philosophy on "quality" and some good tales of riding motorcycle -- Harley vs BMW.

I also read his book "Lilah" ... it wasn't as good as Zen, but it wasn't terrible.

Anyway, he is gone ... and I note his passing. 88 is certainly not a bad age to live to.

Trump in Riyadh, POSITIVE NEWS!

Trump in Riyadh: Speaking of reset | Power Line:

Trump is having a good first trip. BO dug us a deep hole and Trump has to fight not just enemies abroad but enemies at home to start the long road back. BO liked to claim that he had somehow similar problems, but like pretty much anything else he said, that was just a lie.

By contrast with President Obama’s Cairo speech, representatives of the Muslim Brotherhood were nowhere to be seen. The fake history served up by President Obama in that speech was abandoned. Indeed, the nemesis of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt — President el-Sisi saluted President Trump just before the speech: “You are a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible.”
He is certainly a uniqe individual ... I pray he is capable of doing the impossible!

Clinton, Cash, Russia, Uranium

Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation Amid Russian Uranium Deal - The New York Times:

Needed to do a little remedial blogging

Here is what actual shady business dealings with the Russians look like ... not some phone calls that nobody has yet to state a SINGLE item of "collusion" on.`

Something between $30 and $50 million transferred to the Clinton Fund ... "Funds, for Clintons".

This isn't some "maybe thing" this ACTUAL transfer of 20% of US reserves of uranium to Putin / Russia!

Do you really need to wonder why Slick is laughing?

The Clintons have been selling off US assets since they left te WH. How do you think they went from supposedly "penniless" acording to Hildebeast, to being worth north of $50 million personally with well over $200 million in their "foundation"?

I love the little tidbit in the column that Slick pulled in $400K for a SPEECH in Russia ... Flynn is "under investigation" for having a lobbying deal with some guy from Turkey for $500K that had "ties to Russia".

And so it goes in BOistan ... if you are in "The Party", you can do no wrong.

Taking Down ALL The Institutions

Some dare call the anti-Trump feeding frenzy a “coup” attempt:

I prefer to call it the 2nd Civil War,  because of the 60+ million people on "the other side" from the similar 60+ million that support "The Party (TP-D)".

Within that war however, we have been seeing the Coup Attempt (CA) since the day after the election. TP still controls the Deep State, most of the judiciary, the media and academia. It's entire mission has been stop Trump from being certified as President, taking office, and now to remove him ... that isn't going to change ... probably not even if he IS removed. it is doubtful they would really be much more sanguine about Penz.

The fact that "the Russian story" is so flawed as to be hillarious has no effect on D's ... you want to see "collusion with the Russians"? Try this:

Want to gaze at what shady business deals and pay for play with the Russions looks like?

That's just ONE contribution to "The Clinton Fund" ... Funds, for Clintons! Most of the estimates put the "take" for the Clinton's to had 20% of US uranium reserves to the Russians at $50 million or more. Want to look a some more "collusion"?

We are not talking "hypothetical" here, we are talking about the Russians ACTUALLY having got 20% of US uranium reserves!

Elections? We can see that TP is not about honoring those when they go against them. Russians?  Hey, as long as "D"s are selling off US assets for 10's of millions, it is a laughing matter -- now? Spare me the "oh, this is a SERIOUS matter!".

The ONLY thing the D's care about at the moment is getting Trump out of office. Invalidating an election? Who cares.

BOistan is where selling anything is OK -- as long as you are in TP. You MUST be in TP!

5 Major "Liberal" Myths

The 5 Biggest Things Liberals Get Wrong About Themselves - John Hawkins:

Nothing new here, however a good cut at a top 5 ... he backs them up well, go look if you don't find them obvious.

  1. Liberals are better/smarter than everyone else. 
  2. Liberals are victims
  3. Liberals are rebellious
  4. Liberals are tolerant
  5. Liberals are for progress 

The biggest thing that hits me is how BAD the stolen term "Liberal" is as a label. "Statist" is much better term.

What we have a self-proclaimed and self-perpetuatiing "elite" of bullies that slavishly push old policies that have been proven to be disasterous for decades. Their coin is POWER, and if they can't get it at the ballot box, violence is fine with them -- because they KNOW that they are the most moral and intelligent beings to ever live, and if you refuse to recognize that, you must be FORCED to acknowlege it!

China, Dead CIA Agents, 2010 - 2015

Killing C.I.A. Informants, China Crippled U.S. Spying Operations - The New York Times:

So the Chinese killed or imprisoned "more than a dozen" CIA agents from 2010 - 2015 and we still don't know why. Looks like the CIA **CAN** keep some secrets from the public when a member of the "The Party" (TP-D) is in the White House.

BOistan doesn't have much of an economy and it obviously isn't very good at spying -- at least on anyone beyond it's domestic political opponents!

Science Leads Scientists To Find Themselves Superior

Is this why Stephen Hawking doesn't believe in God? - CNET:

In a majopr confirmation of confirmation bias, scientists have followed the well trod path of bees, birds and wildebeast in finding their own kind most attractive.

Scientists have declared intelligence (as they define it)  the most important feature of human development, and have declared themselves the top of the evolutionary pyramid.

"New research from the Ulster Institute for Social Research in Northern Ireland and Rotterdam University in the Netherlands examined the "robust negative association between religion and intelligence.""
"The Pope is Stupid, God is so stupid he doesn't exist, and we are pretty sure that chicks will dig us because we are smart now",  said Dr Dweezle Waznuski. "I've never been able to actually work up the nerve to talk to a girl before, but I'm pretty certain that I'm going to get very lucky now and smart scientists like me will take over the world!"

Previously, the "smarter set" has been slightly shall we say "unlucky at love", but PHDs in labcoats everywhere hailed these results as "nearly certain to turn the tide"!

The researchers concluded that religion is an evolved instinct, while intelligence "involves rising above our instincts." After all, intelligence and all that comes with it does often involve controlling our instincts in order to allow our minds to reach rational conclusions.

When Dr Waznuski was asked if producing offspring was a rational choice or an instinct, he became very confused and started to sob, causing the interview to end.

The Party Declares It's Champion

Beginning with FDR, flexing it's muscles in Watergate, and growing more powerful ever after, The Party (TP-D) has created, nurtured, and made it's main instrument of power the Administrative or Deep State (DS). No matter what temporary occupant sits in the White House or party sits in control of Congress, the Deep State abides, and it is not a comfort to those that loved America, liberty, or morality. As the linked New Yorker column puts it:

Washington is a lawyer’s town, built on protocols and rules. If this tends to make happy-hour conversation in the city a little more pedantic than the American norm, then it also has its advantages, among them a fanaticism for records.
As I've often written, lawyers in the US are "The House" as in the gambling sense, and the number one rule of gambling is "The house WINS!". It has to, or there would be no Vegas, State Lotteries, or Casinos dotting the landscape. At any moment, lawyers are always the majority in all the legislatures and the US congress, plus they have their own branch of government, and since at least the early '70s, they also own the now most powerful "hidden in plain sight" branch of government, the Deep State.

The common thread is lawyers. Both political parties are significantly by and for lawyers, with TP being especially by and for lawyers. I'm not trying to say that lawyers are "bad people", merely that as lawyers, they have been schooled to view the world in a very specific way, and that way is not what America was -- lawyers are indeed people, but WE THE PEOPLE are not to be subserviant to a ruling lawyer class. This is why government was to be strictly LIMITED!

In addition to the question of whether Trump’s Presidential campaign colluded with the Russian government, there is now the question of whether he interfered to stop an investigation—whether he, as President, obstructed justice.
 As the excellent cartoon at the top reminds us, "obstruction of justice" is "TP normal". IRS decides to target conservatives ? Lois Lerner takes the 5th, a bunch of computers turn up wiped, and BO declares it over -- hey, don't expect the Deep State to investigate itself!

BO's justice department goes after a conservative reporter trying to find out about leaks?  Well, most people don't even know it happened -- and it is CERTAINLY no concern for goodness sake! The "good guys" (BO) went after the "bad guys", (Fox News) ... nuff said! What is the use of having a huge weapon like the DS if you can't use it to destroy your enemies?

Many "progressives" have pointed out how "scandal free" the  BO disaster was ... to the blind, coal tar and snow may as well be pure white! BO decided the investigation of Hildebeast on 60 Minutes "She had no intent to break the law, and no secrets endangered national security" -- oh thank you great and powerful BO for decaring the conclusion of FBI investigagtion prior to it being over! (no "obstruction" there!)

BO ENDORSED HILDEBEAST ON JUNE 9th and Comey didn't fold the investigation until July 5th! Now, ostensivly, it was Slick Willie meeting with his boss on a plane in AZ on June 30th  that convinced Comey"it's over", rather than the POTUS endorsing a person under investigation by the FBI, but REALLY folks! The POTUS ENDORSES a person under active FBI investigation to take his job and that is NOT "obstruction"? Hello? Welcome to BOistan! Does not endorsing her for POTUS more than "imply" that "she is a nice lady and I hope the FBI can get by this so she can take my job". Even TP has not YET put in a CONVICTED felon ... many of them are felons, they just don't do the "conviction thing" because, well ... TP!

Anyone that is semi awake understands that in TP controlled BOistan, anyone that is not a TP member in good standing is someone that TP would see as needful of "investigation" -- and certainly, a  president that is non-TP REQUIRES "investigation".

Perhaps the "BOistan Consitution" should just say that "in the unlikely event that a person that is not a TP member in good standing is elected, a set of "Special Prosecutors", "Commissions", "Independent Councels", "Czars", etc  must be immediately appointed to investigate what are clearly "high crimes and misdemeanors", because someone not sworn to fealty to TP has ostensively gained power!" To TP, that is certainly a MAJOR crime!

We really didn't need to investigate BO ... his own book made it clear he wanted to destroy "the colonial powers" -- and he did a hell of a job on at least one of them!

Can Trump beat these bastards? Who knows, but BOistan  SUCKS!

Not Being A Democrat Evidence of Criminal Intent

Preliminary thoughts on the “Comey memo” [UPDATED] | Power Line:

Last July, and again just early in May,  Comey told us that Hillary could not be prosecuted because he could not "prove criminal intent", the Democrats and the MSM cheered loudly.

“We could not prove that the people sending the information, either in that case or in the other case with the secretary, were acting with any kind of the mens rea — with any kind of criminal intent,” Mr. Comey said.
We all inherently know this to be true -- most of us have friends, or even personally had the experience of being pulled over for speeding or even DUI, telling the officer "I didn't intend to break the law" and the officer immediately expressing his apology for intruding on our lives and being sent on our way. Purity of intent is the all purpose get out of jail free card. I'm guessing that if you have a "Ready for Hillary" bumper sticker, officers likely never even pull you over.

In the past couple of days while the "Comey memo" and the "secret disclosure to the Russians" have filled the news, I've been struck by how "intent" has shifted. Let's assume that the felons leaking the information were "true D's" and 100% accurate with only the pure intent to destroy Trump, a case of obvious virtue.

But given that, how can we be so certain of Trump's intent in his no doubt honorably reported by felons "crimes"? It seems obvious --  he is an R. 

I believe we all understand that in BOistan, "intent" counts more than "rule of law", and not being a D is prima facia evidence of criminal intent, while being a D sets a high bar indeed as malice of intent must be proven "beyond a shadow of a doubt". For D's, setting up servers, deleting tens of thousdands of emails is not really "evidence" without being able to see into the very soul of the Democrat in question, so no crime can be prosecuted. Comey looked into Hillary's soul, saw "she was a good person", so he was able to put the investigation behind him.

Clearly Flynn is NOT a "good person", so any suggestion that he might be and thus would not have committed whatever crime the felon leakers assert he committed (again, we assume their motive is completely pure and honorable, so the fact of their felony in leaking is not really criminal) ... thus the mere suggestion that someone working in an R capacity is somehow a "good guy", is in itself "interference" -- it goes against the metaphysical truth of D=good, R=evil!

After all, BO endorsed Hillary for POTUS over a month prior to Comey ending the investigation after his boss, Loretta Lynchmob  met with Slick Willie on the plane in AZ. 

We seem to move ever closer to the point where not pledging allegiance to "The Party" (TP-D) and the POWER it represents is itself a crime!

Raised Weinter Points At Hildebeast

Weiner raised again | Power Line:

One of my emotional proofs of the existence of God is stories like "The Weiner".

What are the odds in a universe of the highly unlikely, where the odds against our existence have been calculated by our best scientists to be 10 with HUNDREDS of zreros AGAINST us even existing, that a man named "Weiner" would keep showing up in Democrat politics, and he is married to the chief aide to their presidential candidate? Who also has a guy with "weiner problems" as a spouse.

Prior to Trump, I would have said that it COULD NOT happen on the Republican side, because there, you are destroyed if you mis-spell "potato"  (of course the "funny" part is that even major newspapers often spelled it "potatoe" up until '92!). There are now new rules FOR TRUMP ... somehow. I'm not sure anyone has really figured out why that is ... but naturally, I've tried.

God exists AND he has a sense of humor!
