He’s Going To Go Medieval On Their Ass

The quake you felt Friday afternoon came on the heels of the White House announcement that Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was leaving the Trump Administration.
Pundits were quibbling over whether Bannon resigned or was fired.  The question of tantamount importance is with whom will Bannon go to war now that he has been “unshackled.”
Writing at Daily Wire Ben Shapiro pointed to something he said one year ago:  “Bannon understands that in the game of thrones, you win or die; he doesn’t intend to die.” Now that he’s been beheaded by Trump, look for him to try to become the Night King, leaving destruction in his wake.
At 10:18 AM, Joel B. Pollak, Senior Editor at Breitbart Media, tweeted the hashtag #WAR.
In his first public remarks since his ouster, Bannon told Joshua Green, Senior National Correspondent at Bloomberg and author of “Devil's Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Storming of the Presidency”, he will be “going to war” for Trump, warning that he will continue to press the populist cause against the political and corporate establishment. “If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up:  I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents—on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America.” 
Gabriel Sherman, Special Correspondent for Vanity Fair and NBC/MSNBC contributor was evidently so excited this villain was gone he tweeted: “Bannon friend says Breitbart ramping up for war against Trump.  “It is now a Democrat White House,” source says. [emphasis mine]
David Bossie, a long-time Republican operative, former deputy campaign manager for the Trump campaign and Chairman of conservative advocacy group Citizens United appeared on Fox News Special Report to allay any fears Bannon would turn on Trump.

Mean Tweets: CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Edition

Following the aftermath of Thursday’s terror attack, CNN’s Wolf Bullshitter Blitzer said there will be questions about whether “if what happened in Barcelona was at all a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville,” after it was reported that a large van ran into pedestrians leaving several dead and many injured.  “Even though there may be different characters, different political ambitions. They used the same killing device, a vehicle going at high speed into a group, a large group of pedestrians.”
Did CNN forget the six attacks involving vehicles plowing through pedestrians in Europe over the past year?  Of course not.  It was just another good, strong whiff of hospital-tested, clinically-proven bullshit.

Behold, Another Soft-Skulled Moonbat

“Black people who were never slaves are fighting white people who were never Nazis over a confederate statue erected by Democrats because Democrats can’t stand their own history anymore...yet somehow, it’s Trump’s fault.”
Via St. Louis Post-Dispatch─Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal posted, ‘I hope Trump is assassinated” on Facebook.  She quickly deleted it but not before her intemperate decision caused the Secret Service to investigate her threat.
Secret Service spokeswoman Catherine Milhoan says all threats made against the president, vice president and other protected persons are investigated, whether the threats are direct, implied or made in passing.
Seems the soft-skulled moonbat is facing a barrage of flak from members of her own party:
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said, "I condemn it. It's outrageous. And she should resign.”
Rep. William Lacy Clay, (D-MO) exclaimed, "Calling for the assassination of the President is a federal crime…She is an embarrassment to our state. She should resign immediately.”
NOTE: It was Clay who hung the controversial “cops as pigs” painting in the Cannon Building of the Capitol Complex in January of this year that was taken down three times and rehung by him.  The Congressional Black Caucus defended the painting as free speech.
The painting showed cops as pigs pointing guns at protesters in Ferguson following the shooting death of Michael Brown in 2014.
Missouri Democratic Party Chair Stephen Webber stated, "The Party will absolutely not tolerate calls for the assassination of the President. I believe she should resign.”
Republican Gov. Eric Greitens' office said late Thursday afternoon that a statement from him is forthcoming.
Chappelle-Nadal acknowledged she wrote the offending line but added, "I didn't mean what I put up. Absolutely not. I was very frustrated. Things have got to change.  It was in response to the concerns that I am hearing from residents of St. Louis. I have deleted it, and it should have been deleted, but there is something way more important that we should be talking about.  I am not resigning.  What I said was wrong, but I am not going to stop talking about what led to that, which is the frustration and anger that many people across America are feeling right now."
Chappelle-Nadal said her comment stemmed from frustration over the events in Charlottesville over the weekend, in which a white supremacist protester allegedly rammed his car into a group of counter-protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman.
"There are people who are afraid of white supremacists" in the aftermath of Charlottesville, she said. "There are people who are having nightmares. there are people who are afraid of going out in the streets. It's worse than even Ferguson."
There’s good news though.  Having joined the Missouri State Senate in 2010, she will be ousted from office in 2019 due to term limits.

The Greatest Degeneration Vs The Greatest Generation

Pictured:  World War II veteran Donald Napier views a wreath near the European Campaign section of the World War II Memorial with Photoshopped™ image of Antifa extremist

Let me apologize up front if I ramble a bit on a subject so abhorrent to me.

Following President Trump’s press conference at Trump Tower on Tuesday intended to inform the media about the President’s infrastructure executive order, reporters began to pepper him with combative, hysterical questions:

Do you think that what you call the alt-left is the same as neo-Nazis?

Does the statue of Robert E. Lee stay up?

Are you against the Confederacy?

How concerned are you about race relations in America and do you think things have gotten worse or better since you took office?

Mr. President, are you putting what you are calling the alt-left and white supremacists on the same moral plane?
You said there was hatred, there was violence on both sides?
The neo-Nazis started this thing. They showed up in Charlottesville to protest —
What do you think needs to be done to overcome the racial divides in this country?
Mr. Trump made the mistake of claiming, “there is blame on both sides.”  Some in the media declared his statement was “offering aid and comfort to racists and extremists.”
As Daniel Payne so succinctly said, “We are lurching from one shrieking, insane media episode to the next.  And it is wearing on all of us, and weakening the bonds of fellowship between common Americans.”
Two journos went a step further equating Antifa, radical left-wing thugs and self-described anarchists who heave urine and feces-filled balloons, attack the defenseless and attack women with Americans belonging to the Greatest Generation who stormed the beaches of Normandy to defeat the evil menace of Nazism.
The only conclusion one can logically arrive at is the press poodles are resistant to admitting Antifa is violent because they support it.
Daniel Greenfield noted, “Extremists want to eliminate the consensus of civil society. They want to destroy the idea that there’s any solution except violence through confrontations that show the helplessness of civil society.”
On Fox’s noonday program, Outnumbered co-host Melissa Francis, broke down in tears over her fear of honestly discussing the chaos in Charlottesville.  “I am so uncomfortable having this conversation.  I know what’s in my heart and I know that I don’t think anyone is different, better or worse based on the color of their skin,” Francis said, wiping away tears. “But I feel like there is nothing any of us can say right now without being judged.”
Francis choked up responding to comments by Fox’s Juan Williams and Marie Harf suggesting that Trump was defending Nazis and KKK members when he said counter-protestors shared blame for the fighting.
Progressive liberal protesters are increasingly clamoring for the removal of statues and monuments honoring Confederate soldiers and leaders.  What’s next?  The Jefferson Memorial?  The Washington Monument?  The Christ The Redeemer statue in Rio De Janiero?  Bank ATMs which dispense dollar bills honoring a slave owner?
In George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984,” a quote from one of Orwell’s characters warns how “every book has been rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street and building has been renamed, every date has been altered.  And that process is continuing day by day and minute by minute.  History has stopped.”

Is Fox Down on its "Heels"?


Another way to put that is, "Why does Fox suffer fools so gladly?"

According to Wikipedia:

(Spoiler alert! Pro wrestling may be...less than, shall we say, purely...random?)

Professional wrestling... is a form of performance art which combines athletics with theatrical performance...The matches have predetermined outcomes to heighten entertainment value...
Say it ain't so!!! And further, according to the Oracle of Wiki, wrestlers are divided unto two groups: The "Babyfaces" or "Faces" (the good guys) whom the audience is supposed to cheer and the "Heels" (bad guys), who are the "villains", as it were, whom the audience is supposed to boo and jeer.
Mission accomplished!

I started to notice the similarities between pro wrestling and Fox News after Fox hired Marie Harf. Marie was a State Department Spokesperson for the Obama administration, where she was, frankly, kind of an airhead, and said some incredibly stupid things. In other words,  a complete joke.

But, a joke with blonde hair, a nice smile and now, a job on Fox News, to be a 'Heel' for the audience to jeer, along with fellow heels, Juan Williams, Geraldo Rivera, Richard Fowler and others.

Why does Fox tolerate liberals who, if brains were dynamite, couldn't blow their own noses? Aside from being "Fair and balanced", I believe it's performance art. Liberal contortionists  jump through hoops of illogical rhetoric, to act as foils, and receive the occasional body slam from conservatives, primarily for the sake of ratings.

Fox's Heels are typically pleasant, friendly people who more often than not, are merely regurgitating the talking points of the Left, whose attempts at original thought more closely resemble a dumpster fire.

It's a lot easier to tolerate Fox News since I caught onto the act. The Heels don't have to be all that insightful or bright to bring in an audience.

Don't take them too seriously, and be sure to bring the popcorn!

How About A Nice Game Of Chess?

According to a published report from The Washington Post, North Korean leader Kim Fatty The Third appeared to take a step back from the brink of nuclear war Tuesday, when DPRK state media reported that he would “watch a little more the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees.”
This came just hours after the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, told South Korean leaders Monday that the United States was ready to use the “full range” of its military capabilities to deal with North Korea.
I guess this means we can all look up in the sky on August 21st and see the solar eclipse without missiles passing in front of the sun at the same time.

The Senseless Drive To Break America Apart

On August 15, 1996, as with each presidential convention, the focus of Bob Dole’s acceptance speech invariably touched on an “America only the unknowing call a myth.”
The Republican Party is broad and inclusive. It represents many streams of opinion and many points of view.
But if there's anyone who has mistakenly attached themselves to our party in the belief that we are not open to citizens of every race and religion, then let me remind you, tonight this hall belongs to the Party of Lincoln. And the exits which are clearly marked are for you to walk out of as I stand this ground without compromise.
And though, I can only look up at a very steep angle, to Washington and Lincoln, let me remind you of their concern for the sometimes-delicate unity of the people.
The notion that we are and should be one people rather than "peoples" of the United States seems so self-evident and obvious that it's hard for me to imagine that I must defend it. When I was growing up in Russell, Kansas, it was clear to me that my pride and my home were in America, not in any faction, and not in any division.
In this I was heeding, even as I do unto this day, Washington's eloquent rejection of factionalism. I was honoring, even as I do unto this day, Lincoln's word, his life and his sacrifice. The principle of unity has been with us in all our successes.
The 10th Mountain Division, in which I served in Italy, and the Black troops of the 92ndm Division who fought nearby were the proof for me once again of the truth I'm here trying to convey.
The war was fought just a generation after America's greatest and most intense period of immigration. And yet when the blood of the sons of immigrants and the grandsons of slaves fell on foreign fields, it was American blood. In it you could not read the ethnic particulars of the soldier who died next to you. He was an American.
And when I think how we learned this lesson I wonder how we could have unlearned it. Is the principle of unity, so hard-fought and at the cost of so many lives, having been contested again and again in our history, and at such a terrible price, to be casually abandoned to the urge to divide?
The answer is no.
Must we give in to the senseless drive to break apart that which is beautiful and whole and good?
And so tonight I call on every American to rise above all that may divide us, and to defend the unity of the nation for the honor of generations past, and the sake of those to come.

A Ginned-Up Cauldron Of Hatred

As we sit waiting on pins and needles for Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un to launch his ICBMs at the United States and the North Korean News Agency issues statements proclaiming, "We consider the U.S. no more than a lump which we can beat to a jelly any time,” we are destroying ourselves with resplendent efficiency from within.
Chaos and violence turned to tragedy Saturday in Charlottesville, VA as hundreds of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members—planning to stage what they described as their largest rally in decades to “take America back”—clashed with counter-protesters and law enforcement in the streets.  During the clash, a car belonging to an Ohio man barreled into the crowd leaving one person dead and 19 others injured.
At 1:19 PM Saturday, President Trump spoke to the nation:
"As you know this was a small press conference, but a very important one, and it was scheduled to talk about the great things we are doing with the secretary on the Veteran's Administration, and we will talk about that very much so in a little while. But I thought I should put out a comment on what is happening in Charlottesville...But we're closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, VA.”
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence that's on many sides. On many sides. It's been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, it's been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. What is vital now is the swift restoration of law and order, and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society. And no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play, or be with their parents, and have a good time.”
“I just got off the phone with the governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe, and we agreed that the hate and the division must stop. And must stop right now. We have to come together as Americans with love for our nation and true affection—and really I say this so strongly—true affection for each other.”
“Above all else we must remember this truth: no matter our color, creed, religion, or political party, we are all Americans first. We love our country, we love our God, we love our flag, we're proud of our country, we're proud of who we are. So, we want to get the situation straightened out in Charlottesville, and we want to study it. And we want to see what we are doing wrong as a country where things like this can happen.”
“My administration is restoring the sacred bonds of loyalty between this nation and its citizens, but our citizens must also restore the bonds of trust and loyalty between one another. We must love each other, respect each other, and cherish our history and our future together. So important. We have to respect each other, ideally we have to love each other."
One year ago, Hillary Clinton devoted an entire speech warning how her opponent was “emboldening hate groups and white supremacists.”
As with Ferguson, the corrupt media sees racism and hatred around every corner and is all too happy to help write the storyline that what happened in Charlottesville “deserved an excoriating [by President Trump] of the racist rhetoric of the racial right wing.”

Hillary to Campaign for Democrats in 2018

What could possibly go wrong


I mean, they already have loser Jon Ossoff from GA-6 giving seminars on how to win in '18, why not Hillary? 

("Why not Hillary?" - a question that has been asked and answered at least twice!)
