It is with deep sadness that I report to our readers that my good friend and fellow editor of this site, Dan Miller, has passed away. Those of you who have been with the site over the last three years know how important his contributions were. He will be sorely missed by all of us. […]
Ever been in a fight you know you shouldn’t have picked?
Welcome to California.
Before I go any further, let me restate that which we already know to be true… Leftists HATE STATES RIGHTS.
Okay. Now we can start.
In a widely publicized, made for TV, moment the Mayor of Oakland warned illegal aliens, undocumented workers, potential Democrat voters, criminal trespassers, whatever you want to call them, the ICE was going to conduct a drag net in the hopes of capturing and securing some of the genuinely criminal, felonious, lawbreaking saints that escaped their country of origin to enter America illegally and turn it into the place they had to get out of.
That was a watershed moment. Why? Because it allowed the Feds to do what California never intended to do. It allowed the Feds to Sue. “So what” you ask? Well, the Liberals in California LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Federal power over the states to make you do what they want while providing you no escape from their terrific ideas. In other words, they don’t want you skipping off to another state thereby avoiding the super cool soda tax they installed over your protests because your fat… and they know better than you what you need. Fatty.
Well, this suit by the Feds will provide a little case-law Constitutional re-enforcement once settled.
Let’s think about this for a moment.
If California wins, which is what the useful idiots think is good news, then it is a win for States Rights… uh oh… once they realize this they… will… not… be… happy.
If California loses, which is the end of the world as it is perceived by the useful, it will be a victory for the Federal Government (Which they Like), but it will be in the area of immigration enforcement (Which they Don’t Like).
I believe the Administration has been waiting the last year for exactly this event to present itself.
It is a Win-Win for Trump and frankly every citizen in the United States, nationalized or natural-born.
It is a Lose-Lose for Socialists because it either places new, and needed, power behind the States being able to resist Federal Authority, or it re-enforces the Federal Authority to enforce Immigration over the protest of the State and Local Municipalities.
It’s a Catch-22. (For the publically educated out there, look it up. Then read the book.)
This is fun to watch… and explains the mixed messages we are getting out of California right now. The truly Sinister Leftists who see where this is going are desperately trying to get out in front of it, but they have the genuinely useful like the Mayor of Oakland who refuses to read the page let alone get on it. This will be Epic Spin.
I will enjoy seeing what the Cali-Socialists decide is the best tactic here. Frankly, they should drop their protests and admit their wrong so they can save the bigger hammer, that being Federal Power over the States which they love so much.
The question is how would their useful constituency take such a move?
Having Fun Yet?
SHAPE OF WATER
Congratulations guys on a wholly original Cinema Experience leaving us thinking about the World around us. We here at makeaneffort tip our hats.
Here are a couple stills from the movie in case you haven’t seen it yet.

For the life of me I cannot understand why Movie attendance and the Ratings of Award Shows is dropping… aside from the force feeding of political correctness, pious posturing and poisonous politics, what’s not to love?
The Motion Pictures are just THAT GOOD.
Stealing from NEO… and Powerline… A little something for everyone.
Let’s start with a bit more from the recent CPAC. We all know Ben Shapiro, and yes, he is one of our great rising voices, but what I find fascinating is that as well as he resonates with us, he speaks just as well to the cousins, who increasingly find our outspokenness to be vital to […]
