Afghanistan – Stay together for the children?

Afghanistan a divorce story
"No Matter The Timing, Withdrawing From Afghanistan Was Wrong " - that's the headline. I suppose that is a point of view we have to address because there are reasons to have stayed. At this point I still suspect we will go back. But, time will tell on that front. I am assuming that "no matter" in this headline is hyperbole. If taken on face value the only option would be to make Afghanistan a US t...

A Climate Apology – Too Little – Too Late

Climate Apology
I don't think any single person has the right to apologize on behalf of environmentalists any more than I think a consensus of scientists saying something means they must be right and "sciency". However, it is nice to hear. It is nice to hear someone acknowledge that fear has been the propaganda of environmentalism. We hear it in an article titled, "On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize Fo...

Lying Liars Lie – The worst kind of lies and Cuomo – #510

Lying liars lie
"People value the truth," said New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo during an interview on MSNBC. "Incompetent government kills people. More people died than needed to die in COVID." Cuomo said this before revelations came out that he hid information from the department of justice. You and I hear this and we are shocked. Fantastically shocked. I shouldn't be shocked of course. As Orwell put it, "Politica...

Hillary Clinton was Behind it All?

Hillary with Putin looking on with a wink
The idea that Hillary was the motivating force behind the Russia hoax (yes, we know it was a hoax) has been around for a long time. Declassified information was just released that indicates that then President Obama was briefed that Hillary was the source.  The Politico covers the story by spending the first half of the article saying this information was previously rejected so that the reader ...

What I think of QAnon

Q and Platy
Let us start with this in mind from Ayn Rand, "There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals." The point being made is a solid one and one that applies well to the subject of this post. Let us move on then to the article (linked below) that inspired this blog post. The article seems to intentionally cherry pick from Q posts to com...

Idea: Defund the Police – Good Idea? 

No police - how about thoughts and prayers
"Minneapolis is not the only city asking the question. Across the country, calls to defund, downsize or abolish police departments are gaining new traction after national unrest..." I have already talked at length on George Floyd but think the second part of the above paragraph is worth a quick note as it relates to the topic of defunding the police. It concludes, "...following the death of Geo...

Obamagate

Side Glance Obama
You may have noticed that the normally reticent former president Barack Obama has been rather vocal of late. I think Obamagate is the reason for that. Since Watergate the word "gate" has become a suffice meaning a scandal. Some love to say that Obama had a "scandal-free" administration. Those people weren't paying attention. That aside perhaps they are paying attention now? Kayleigh McEnany...

Letter from White House Counsel Pat. A Cipollone

thickastheives
Below is the letter that White House Counsel Pat Cipollone wrote to Democrat leaders Nancy Pelosi, Eliot Engel, Adam Schiff, and Elijah Cummings. The short of it, if you don't want to read it, is that the impeachment effort is a farce. He explains why it is unconstitutional, violates due process, is not actually an impeachment inquiry, and that the actions of the Democrats are actually more in que...

Elizabeth Warren & Adam Schiff – Lying Liars Lie

We recently talked about how Warren lied about why she was fired from her teaching job. She says it was because she was "visibly pregnant". We now have proof that she lied. The meeting minutes from the board of education, a legal record, states that they actually renewed her position for a second year and that she put in her resignation which they "accepted with regret". She lied - outright. When ...

All the Left Offers is Misery, All Socialism Has is Pain

Bill Maher
This is not the first time that Bill Maher has said this, that he thinks if we have a recession that it would mean Trump would not get elected again. He's getting a lot of attention for saying this but in reality the entire leftist agenda is based on people doing poorly. If people are doing well, then the left has nothing. True conservatism (I have to say "true" because there are other brands) is ...

Abortion: The Life of the Mother

It's popular among some to say that abortion is never (NEVER they say in all caps) necessary to save the life of the mother. That isn't true. The below linked article gives one very good example of that. A case where a woman is carrying twins and one of the twins has died inside of her but the other twin has not. "Cecily Kellogg, 44, a writer who lives near Philadelphia, says that was the situa...

Violence, intolerance, humanity, and the border

As I have clearly stated over and over, I'm in favor of building a wall and I'm in favor of immigration reform and a strong set of criteria for citizenship or extended stay in the country for work or school. However, there is nothing in this stance that should ever be taken to mean I'm against immigrants or have the slightest hing of xenophobia. I don't. The below linked article points out a 60...

The Census: Who Counts?

Wilbur Ross Cartoon
The census is part of the US Constitution. In a government by the people the original intent of the census was to make sure the people were represented. Some argue that asking about more than just a simple head count is against the Constitution. That's not the case actually. The Constitution says Congress is to decide how the census is carried out. If, then, someone in Trump's administration is us...

If Elizabeth Warren is Special then We’re All Special

Warren's DNA results
Elizabeth Warren finally took a DNA test to put her ancestry to rest once and for all. It was quickly reported that she had a full-blooded Indian ancestor within 6-10 generations. Well, there you have it! She has a new campaign add and an entire web page dedicated to her "Native American Heritage". This is an example of a lie snowballing. Once you tell the lie, you have to support the lie and the ...

American Sentiment for Immigrants

Violence in South Africa
I often post stories from other countries as I find what happens there instructive. Wisdom is looking at the mistakes of others and learning from them without having to make the same mistakes yourself. This kind of violence is abhorrent. Of course we all know that in the end the choice to be violent or not is an individual one. It's a particular kind of weakness of mind that blames others for y...
