A collection of thoughts over the last few days…

# In watching the output on Facebook, it appears that the vast majority of Americans who are trying to impeach Trump were, just mere months ago chasing Pokemon.

The reason Netanyahu has lasted as long as he has is because truth will win out. Israel has spent many decades bending over forward trying to accommodate these murderous bastards and getting nowhere for their trouble. Indeed, I made mention of this in my very first post,and none of it has changed.

At Clinton’s insistence, Barak offered Arafat the keys to the kingdom; just about all of the West Bank and Gaza, plus East Jerusalem and even Palestinian sovereignty over the Temple Mount. How do the peace loving Palestinians respond? Yasser Arafat turned it all down, and gave us another few nights of headlines, filled with kids in the street throwing stones, and being shot, occasionally. He also sent his armed forces, (You recall, they’re supposed to be policemen?) to fire at the Israelis, apparently hoping for an excuse to tell the rest of the world how Israel is a war-mongering nation.

Of course that should have been a signal to about anyone with a brain that he didn’t give a damn about peace. All he and his followers are interested in is the destruction of Israel.

# The nationalist/ small government movement is a worldwide movement. It is notable that the majority of the politicians active in the EU legislature are politicians who have been sacked in the legislators of their native countries.

# Bruce McQueen mentioned this… I don’t know… perhaps a week ago, if America is such a racist country why do leftists have to invent fake hate crimes? The answer of course is because the demand for racism to support leftist arguments exceeds the actual supply.

The Reverend Al Sharpton speaking in Baltimore both told and was told to “Go back to where you came from”, from Twitter.

I don’t know the identities of the citizens who told the Reverend Al to take the first train back to New York City.   However the good reverend did tell one  or more residents of the Charm City to go back from whence they came.   In three, two, one, when will Sharpton’s employer, NBC, suspend Sharpton for his racist language.?

I keep coming back to this point because I consider it to be the largest indicator of the motivations of the Democrats for pushing for the impeachment of Donald Trump. I think this cannot be over- emphasized ….every single Republican president since Eisenhower has suffered under an impeachment attack by the Democrats.

That kind of history does more or than anything else to put the LIE to the idea that this impeachment push is motivated by anything but a Democrat party power grab.

A logical extension of that is, the question of whether or not over the span of time since Eisenhower, it was ever anything other than a pure power grab. I am forced to conclude the answer to that question is no.

There are a large number of people who are catching on to this idea, which is one of the reasons that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been fighting against pursuing impeachment. Pelosi understands as that the more people that catch on to that trend and come to the conclusion that I have mentioned above the worse the thrashing will be that the Democrats will take in 2020, likely losing the House in a fashion that will make Democrat losses in 1994 look minor by comparison.

There is one other factor that Pelosi is calculating with that the remainder of the Democratic caucus is not. Indeed, most of the press isn’t either. The sword of Damocles which is hanging over the Democrats necks at the moment is the inspector general’s report. That report has not been released yet, though I suspect it’s going to be released at the proper time. Pelosi suspects, and I concur that there is some seriously damning evidence against the Democrats and their actions in 2016 and subsequently, that is contained in that report evidence which will put the lie to everything the Democrats have been pitching for the last four years, anyway, and probably longer.

Granted that Pelosi may not be the brightest bulb in the circuit, but she’s at least smart enough to understand it’s a little difficult to maintain an attempt to impeach the POTUS when everything that you’ve been saying for years is being shown as a complete and utter lie.

The IG report isn’t the only thing that’s due to come out very shortly, of course. Attorney General Barr is in the process of running his own investigation(s) into the investigators. We already know a good deal of just how dirty the Democrats have been in all of this but I suspect the worst is yet to come and I believe, so does Nancy Pelosi.

Using using the standard Democrats have applied to President Trump, I cannot prove the Nancy Pelosi is innocent in the dirty play that the Democrats have been foisted off on the American people, but I have great reason to suspect that she h deeply involved with it, mostly because she was among those who are most likely to gain by it. Pelosi understands the tale of Pandora and the box and she is acting desperately afraid of what might be inside of it and of the results of its contents being made public.

The point to all of this is of course that the Democrats simply can’t help themselves. They’ve been running this play for so long that they have no other arrows left in the quiver.

I regard the actions of the Democrats in their attempts to impeach the president as criminal.

Remember the other day when I mentioned about how we were being affected by the dismantling of our culture?

Now we see a report from the New York Post which goes directly to the point:

The “sister” of the Dayton, Ohio, shooter who was killed during the attack identified as a transgender guy — although his family had no idea, according to a report and some of his own social media posts.

As I said then, here’s another area where the left has been successful in tearing down social norms to the point where the argument is made even at the governmental level, “they’re not sick, they’re just different”.

And this is the result.  Make no mistake, here. The mental illness that created the Dayton shooter, also created the sibling.

The last Jeffery Epstein 66 has departed this Earth destination gates unknown. The lame stream media, in the form of ABC News, is reporting Epstein’s death as if if were a suicide, from ABC News:

Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced millionaire who was facing federal sex trafficking charges, died by suicide early Saturday in his Lower Manhattan prison cell, three law enforcement officials told ABC News.

[…]

His death came less than three weeks after he was found unresponsive in his cell at the federal prison in Lower Manhattan, with marks on his neck that appeared to be self-inflicted, sources told ABC News.

He had been on suicide watch since the July 23 incident.

Is this suicide, homicide or Arkancide? How does a prisoner purported to be on suicide watch find the time to make a rope, fix a noose and then hang himself all while under observation? Film at Eleven.

Will we find the typed, unsigned suicide note that never mentioned suicide? Epstein’s death should be investigated as homicide. A lot of people had good reason to want Epstein dead.

This is most certainly not the first time I’ve pointed this out, but these scientific reports keep coming up with this information so I’ll keep repeating it:

A new paper published by researchers form the University of Turku in Finland suggests that even though observed changes in the climate are real, the effects of human activity on these changes are insignificant. The team suggests that the idea of man made climate change is a mere miscalculation or skewing the formulas by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Frankly I think the report is being generous, when they raised the possibility that this is simply a miscalculation.

They’ve known for several years that this is the case. They’ve been lying to us all this time. Now consider what they gain by lying to us. Political power. no surprise that the majority of the people telling us that we’re going to die from “global warming” are leftists.

In any event, in a sane world the EPA would have been dismantled decades ago and this is more scientific proof of that statement. It’s way past time for the climate monsters to go get themselves a real job.

Wait… Slow Joe said What?

He said schools in poor areas should offer Advanced Placement and other enrichment programs.

“We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids,” he said, when applause started.

Mr. Biden then seemed to catch himself and added “wealthy kids, black kids, Asian kids, No, I really mean it.”

“Yikes…have fun mitigating that one,” Andrew Clark, rapid response director for the Trump campaign, wrote on Twitter.

As I have said many times now, in spite of all the baggage, the sad fact is, Biden is still the best the Democrats have right now.

That that fact of itself should scare anybody with two brain cells to rub together, off the Democrat Party all together.

If this wasn’t so tragic, it would be laughable.

Actress’Rosanna Arquette said Thursday the FBI advised her to make her Twitter account private after online critics lambasted her on Wednesday for tweeting that she was ashamed of being “white and privileged.”

Look, this girl has never been The brightest bulb in the circuit to begin with. But she does know on some level that to get by in Hollywood, you have to know what the kiss and when.

What frightens me about this is the number of people who rush to take her social and political commentary seriously.

If Kurt Schlichter isn’t on your daily reading list, you should address that discrepancy immediately.

Remember, everything the mainstream media tells you at the behest of the liberal elite is a lie and a scam designed to increase their power and wealth by diminishing your power and wealth. Global warming? It’s such a crisis that they need to fly their private jets to fabulous resorts to discuss how you must trade in your Ford Expedition for a Schwinn and how millions of people like you who support their families in the petroleum industry better learn to code. And now the crisis of two left-friendly mutants out of 335 million people means you need to be disarmed. Oh, and you’re also racists so you should be disenfranchised too.

Weird how the liberal solution to every problem is always to make you less free.

One of their tactics is exhaustion – to exhaust the weak among us and get them to say, “Gosh, if we just give in we can put this unpleasantness behind us.” But you can’t put anything behind you with these people, because there is nothing to put behind you. It’s all a lie. You are not a racist. Your guns won’t hurt anyone but criminals and aspiring tyrants.

And here’s the thing…

… that’s precisely what they are, is aspiring tyrants.

All they need to do to remove the word “aspiring” from their title, is to disarm you.

That’s precisely what has happened every time it’s been tried. There has never been a government in history that has remained under the control of the people where the people have been disarmed.

The left will still hate you if you disarm. The difference will be that they will be able to act on that hate.

Trump Derangement Syndrome, it has been said that no good deed goes unpunished, from Amanda Prestigiacomo, Daily Wire:

Trump Supporters Clean Up West Baltimore And The Liberal Media Are Irritated.
[…]
While the residents were thankful for the overhaul — well over 100 volunteers came together to remove 12 tons of trash, according to Presler — the liberal media were, uh, irritated. The media attacked the activist as an “extremist,” questioned his motives, and scolded him for “reinforc[ing] the tired image that the poor people in this city can’t take care of their own neighborhoods.”

It has also been said that it is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.  It is obvious that the lame streamers are only interested in cursing.

I would say it is not a matter of inner city resident can’t pick up the trash in their neighborhood but rather they won’t. I say continue the clean up campaigns until it provokes the inevitable antifa attack.

Going absolutely nuts about Donald Trump on a knitting site?

Social Justice Knitters, SJKs as I call them, weighed in en masse in the comments section. “What did I just read? Respectfully, your words are bigoted. You don’t own the concept of diversity…How is this post doing anything other than protecting white fragility, tone policing, and white silence?” said Helen Kim, who has become a sort of self-appointed spokesperson and inquisitor-in-chief for the SJK community.

“Interesting how your voicing of the need for ‘positivity’ in these discussions reminds me a lot of the rhetoric used by white supremacists.”

I will say this again. This is not about Trump.

Ask yourself a question. Can you imagine the Looney left reacting any differently whatsoever to a president Ted Cruz?

Remember, every single Republican president since Eisenhower has suffered under an impeachment attempt by the Democrats. Every single one.

This kind of loony reaction is nothing new, just a bit louder these days because they understand that the American people have caught on to their shtick.

These are the Nazi tactics that Democrats employ. This is exactly who they are.

So Billy Beck posts a link to o a letter from the Dayton Ohio shooters ex-girlfriend. I will warn you that the letter contains descriptions of some really sick stuff going on, to the point where I won’t even quote it here.

Billy posted the link with any extensive commentary, but I respond this way:

##

So even she in her decreased mental capacity is able to identify red flags in this bozo.

I’m sure that will hear about how Reagan closed the mental health facilities. That bull’s been spread for the last 30 years anyway, by a group of people interested in creating a fascist state under the guise of ‘love and compassion”.

That being said, who could look at this situation that she describes and not understand that the both of them are a couple of cheese cubes short of a fondue pot?

I am uncomfortable with the government having that power, given that we’ve seen the Russians the Chinese the Germans and the Cubans all use the excuse of mental illness for jailing political dissidents… As uncomfortable as I expect most of you are.

The thing is, here’s another area where the left has been successful in tearing down social norms to the point where the argument is made even at the governmental level, “they’re not sick, they’re just different”.
Or, perhaps, “we have no proof that this mentality is a problem”.

So, given the left and it’s removal of the mechanism society used to use to deal with these issues, and the lack of trust in the government to be able to handle the situation without totally making it worse, what is there to be done?

Billy responds with a wonderfully succinct:

You’re asking how to light a candle once it’s been snuffed out.

His description is depressingly apt, but I have to believe there is a way to salvage this situation. Whatever that solution is, it’s going to take time, and it will involve we the people taking back our government from the left.

Take a look at what each and every one of the Democratic presidential candidates is proposing. Along with the Democrats in Congress of course.

The policies they are promoting infringe on the second amendment to the maximum degree that they can possibly arrange while at the same time telling people from around the world , Come and get your free stuff… Our taxpayers will cover you.”

Question at this point to my mind is, assuming those policies are put into force, what does American citizenship mean then?

It means slavery.

Without being armed, without our weapons, we have no recourse whatsoever against the government taking from us to support non-citizens. (Not that non-citizens wouldn’t have the vote given that the Democrats have been spoiling that as well.)

One cannot look at the arguments being made by the Democrats without coming to that conclusion, if we are honest about it. Which of course the Democrats seldom are. They know full well that if they are honest about their goals, they won’t get any votes at all from American citizens but, that’s the reality of it.

And the thing is, the Democrats are just fine with all of this provided that the ever-increasing power of government is in their hands.

. Where does all this lead us? Venezuela, and Hong Kong are two current examples.

I had a bit of a scare. I thought that the fraud Neil deGrasse Tyson has said something that was rational, sane and scientific, Tyson tweeted sanity:

In the past 48hrs, the USA horrifically lost 34 people to mass shootings.

On average, across any 48hrs, we also lose…

500 to Medical errors
300 to the Flu
250 to Suicide
200 to Car Accidents
40 to Homicide via Handgun

Often our emotions respond more to spectacle than to data.

Tyson’s tweet set off a media firestorm.  But not to worry. After a brief bout of sanity, Tyson has since apologized for speaking as scientist.

So, along comes WaPo, with a story that will certainly be buried, simply because it doesn’t match the Democrats non-stop chant.

In other words, gun homicides have dropped substantially over the past 25 years — but most Americans believe the opposite to be true. Why? Perhaps in part because of the media focus on multiple-victim shooting incidents in recent years.

Now, the article notes that gun crime is actually down over the last two years.

What do you suppose has happened over the last couple of years that would have caused that drop, as compared to the 8 years before it?
