The Art of the Deal

The latest episode of Who Wants to be President has Donald Trump refusing to participate in the upcoming Republican Debate just before the Iowa Caucus.

Wait, wait, WAIT!

Before you go all “Who Cares!” on me….

I just want to point out that everyone seems to have an opinion, and they’re all right.

No matter who you’re rooting for… you Win!

To Trump Supporters, Trump is sticking it to the Media and Mean Girls Everywhere.

To Cruz Supporters, you get the center podium at the upcoming debate! Finally!

To Kasich Supporters, nobody cares about you… Or Kasich… or jeb… or Santorum…

To the Rand Supporters, you might get to come back and play!  You should ask to bring Carlie back with you.

To the Bernie Hill Democrat Socialist Supporters, you get to run around cheering about how Trump is afraid of Megyn Kelly and by extension he would be afraid of other Super Mean World Leaders… like Megyn.

To the growing cult of Trump Democrats, he’s sticking it to Faux News!  Quick, tell your friends!

To Fox News Supporters, Megyn’s right to ask tough Ideologically based questions because no one knows what Trump stands for, and his backing out of the debate is an illustration of why we should all be concerned about it!

Finally, if you’re a Rubio supporter, you’ll have to deal with Cruz at the debate… so you may not be feeling like a winner right now!  Seriously, I’m sorry.

But other than Rubio folks, YOU’RE ALL WINNERS!

It’s a win, win, win, win, win, win, win, so to speak.

So buck up campers!

This might be the smartest thing Trump as ever done… and the most unintentionally selfless.


The Stories They don’t want you to Care About…

Or, Why I Love the Holidays.

I enjoy the Holidays not just for the Overeating and Drinking too much, but for the News. I know… weird, right?

Well, actually the Holidays offer up the News no one wants you to know. If ‘They’ can’t dump the stories on Weekends when you are not paying attention then ‘They’ shoot for the closest Holiday. And no season offers the length and breadth of your ‘not paying attention’ than Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Years. Yeah, the other Holidays are good… but the reigning King remains that time when the old year meets the beginning of the new one.

So if you really like to see what nobody is interested in you seeing, but ‘They’ want to be able to say “We ran That Story!”, scan the news feeds over the last 4-weeks.

You may be amazed.

And you might just join me in my hatred of ‘They’.


OMG WTF ROTFLMAO

Meghan McCain is a Fox News Contributor.

Just totally, like, sayin’, right?…

I think I now qualify as a Fox News Contributor.  Well, at least when I’m drunk.

(One of my favorite Meghan McCain moments was when, in her 2012 book, she criticized Bill Clinton for his Adultery… while seeming to forget that she is a product of her Father’s.  All that hard thinkin’ stuff is hard.)


There is No Media Bias!

Networks Reported Bush 2006 Low Approval Numbers 13 Times More Than Obama’s 2014 Numbers.

Why wont you people just shut up!?

The only slanted Media is Fox News.

Wait… Who put that link up there?

… For those of you playing at Home, that’s the difference of $100,000 and One Point Three Million Dollars!  ($1,300,000)

Get it?


Political Theater!

It dawned on me this morning that I’m qualified to be a contributor on any of the Cable News Networks.

I have some credentials… while meager, apparently that doesn’t matter.

What matters is that I use certain phrases that may be true but are completely meaningless… and that I use them over and over and over.

So there I was, watching Juan Williams, of Fox News Fame, describe the VA Scandal as “Political Theater”. The point he was trying to make, the point he is always trying to make, the reason Fox writes him a check… is that any investigation into anything, ever, which originates from Anyone Opposing Democratic Socialists in our Government and Their Schemes is… “Political Theater”.

The brilliance is Juan, et al., have used this ad nauseam and remained employed.

While Juan’s phrase “Political Theater” is simple, and apparently powerful (they are paying him to do it) it lacks a directness. In fact, it is so vague as to be void of substance.

ALL activity in Government is Political Theater.

Every Word spoken, every Action taken. The phrase is Omni-Applicable… thus meaningless.

And yet, Mr. Williams gets a check.

So I’m going to try it out;

The VA Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The IRS Targeting Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The NSA Domestic Spying Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The Benghazi Murder Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The Fast and Furious Scandal… “Political Theater!”
The You Didn’t Build That and Spread the Wealth Around outrage… “Political Theater!”
The Socialist Nationalization of General Motors Outrage… “Political Theater!”
The Drive to Repeal the Socialization of Medicine through Obama Care… “Political Theater!”
The Outrage over Killing of American Citizens with Drones… “Political Theater!”
The Drive to make America Energy Independent by the “Right”… “Political Theater!”

Bill Clinton Lying under Oath… “Political Theater!”
The Cold War… “Political Theater!”
World War II… “Political Theater!”
World War I… “Political Theater!”
The Civil War… “Political Theater!”

My Wife think’s I drink too much… “Political Theater!”

Fun huh?  I think I’m pretty good at this!

Please send checks directly to me.. I will also accept anything Fit for Human consumption with an alcohol content greater than 5%.


A New Line? Reagan created the NSA?

I just heard a Liberal Fox News Contributor defending President Obama’s use of Executive Orders.

Even after presented with the Presidents own words Demonizing the use of Executive Orders prior to being Elected, the Contributor stuck to the line that the number of Executive Orders were less than previous Presidents.  Not that the number particularly matters… it’s a symbolism over substance argument, but’s it’s all they have.

This has been the defense offered for the last several weeks… since the “I’ve got a Pen and a Phone…” comment by the President.

But what I found most interesting was a New Line seemingly tossed out for effect.  Smells a bit like a trial balloon.

The Contributor said: “You know… President Reagan created the NSA with an Executive Order.”

Well, considering I’ve heard NSA stories from as early as the late 60’s that statement struck me as immediately false.  It should be noted however that Martha MacCallum allowed it to go by unchallenged.  Maybe she didn’t know, but this is what the Left does.  They make up something and throw it out in an unrelated discussion knowing they will not be called on it due to time.  And, when not called on it, those who don’t know accept it as truth.

The Progressives are aware that the NSA Domestic Spying is so poisonous that they need to figure out a way to pin it on someone else.

Who better than Reagan?

So, to clarify the record, President Truman (D-MO) created the National Security Agency.  Here is the link from the NSA’s own site.

We are coming into election season and these types of History Revision will increase as the Left desperately tries to save what support they have remaining.

Someone please let Martha know.  She’s going to have to be on her toes…


Does the Sequester have anything to do with it?

– Asked Bill Hemmer of Fox News  (091713) in regard to the “lax background checks” which are being looked at after the shooting at the DC Navy Yard.

Let me answer this stupid question: “No.”

The proper, and non-idiotic, question is: “Does Government Waste, Fraud and Abuse in addition to Overreach syphon off dollars which would be better spent on things like thorough background checks on those holding, or applying for, Security Clearances?”

The answer to this non-stupid question is: “Yes.”

Simple enough.

The idea that a 5% decrease in the GROWTH of Government spending, particularly when the Federal Government is enjoying RECORD tax receipts, is inane… at best.

At Best. At worst, someone with an agenda is in his ear telling him to ask that specific question.

This is a fundamental flaw we experience when discussing the problems associated with Government.

We accept the premise that every single thing Government does is Imperative.  We START the conversation with the idea that not a single dollar is wasted… not a single department bloated… and there is not a single place where Government doesn’t belong.

Stop It!

Stop It!

Stop It!

That mindset is exactly the opposite of what the Founders had in mind when crafting this Great Experiment. Exactly the Opposite!

I expect everyone who reads this blog to pay attention, to makeaneffort to listen carefully and think… think about what is being said, and asked.

The very first question is “What is the Foundation of this argument?”, whatever the argument may be.

The Government is TOO BIG, TOO INTRUSIVE and now TOO OPPRESSIVE when it takes all our money, our liberty and now our privacy.

This Government was designed to be Limited. Limited. Limited.

Right now it enjoys NO limits.

So let me ask you, does the sequester have anything to do with lax security background checks?

Or… should the Government stop doing crap it has no business doing and focus on what it should be doing as outlined in the Constitution of the United States?

There are entire Departments, and projects, that are not detailed in the U.S. Constitution as a Federal Responsibility (The Dept. of Education?  The EPA? Up Arming Al Qaeda in Syria?  Arming Mexican Drug Cartels?  Covering up our Malfeasance in Benghazi?  The IRS targeting political groups it doesn’t like?  Or… How about The NSA Domestic Spying Program?) and if shut down would free up Billions of dollars… the may be a few of those could be used to check out crazy, violent and destructive individuals before we give them access to our secure installations.  And, we can still keep cutting the size of Government at the same time!

How’s that for a premise?


Hannity is an Idiot!

(Update: Weiner was soundly defeated.)

Or is he?

For full disclosure, I’m not what one could consider a huge Hannity fan.

I don’t hate him, I don’t love him.

For me he’s the rice pilaf on the side of my opinion plate.  I might take a bite once in a while but most of the time I leave it untouched.

However, this morning Sean Hannity is receiving a hefty amount of grief after having Sydney Leathers on his show.

And it seems those most appalled feel he should have been extra mean to her. The lament goes like this: “How can a good Conservative have such a trollop on his show and be so nice?”

So Why would he do this?

Because giving Sydney Leathers a stage upon which to dance is…. Brilliant!

Simply having Ms. Leathers on air, visible and painfully vibrant, is exactly the antidote One needs for a Giant Weiner that won’t go away.

Sean does not have to condemn the 6’3″ Dick for anything… just let Ms. Leathers talk and the work is done.

Why is that all it takes?

Because the story is now one we are all familiar with due to having it shoved in our face, again, by the NYC Sext Maniac.

Being Nice to Sydney in a public forum kicks Carlos in his Cojones, repeatedly.

In the end, Miss Leathers has become a promotional manager for the Poster Child of “New Age Flasher’s” who would be mayor.

I bet Sean will continue doing New York a favor by having Sydney on several more times between now and the election, and being nice.  Assuming, of course, a new Sydney doesn’t present herself for all to see.

And don’t think for one second Hannity is the only one who knows how to handle Weiner….


Hubris

(A re-post from 052813 in light of a renewed effort by the current Administration to accuse us of creating “PHONY SCANDALS”.)

 

Like a small flash it hit me after reading this quote from a DNC fundraising email:

“They’ve (Republicans) been caught red-handed making up so-called ‘scandals’ out of thin air to stir up false rumors of vast ‘cover-ups’ happening in the White House,”  Full story here.

First, let’s address the substance of this statement by listing what must be “made up out of thin air”…

This is what really happened, AKA the Truth, according to the DNC:

A U.S. Diplomat and three security personnel, two of whom did not fly to the rescue by stealing an airplane, were not killed on Sept. 11, 2012 by Al Qaeda militants.

The State Department, for some inexplicable reason, did not blame the event on a you tube video that 19 people viewed prior to the non-existent attack by random folks living in Benghazi.

The Administration did not register the 11 other Benghazi victims under pseudonym’s when they were admitted to various hospitals for the injuries they did not receive during the non-attack.

The Internal Revenue Service did not admit targeting Conservative groups, who are perceived by the current Administration as opposition, for additional scrutiny.

One of those running things at the IRS did not plead the fifth in order to not incriminate herself.

The Department of Justice did not secure the phone records for 100 Associated Press reporters, which did not include ancillary business and personal phone numbers.

The Department of Justice did not secure months of e-mail, which included addresses for his contacts, from a FOX News reporter without his knowledge or agreement.

These ridiculous non-facts are just more of the same from the Republican Party…. stop reading here and send the Democrat National Committee your money now.

Or, keep reading a little longer.

The small flash I mentioned earlier was a word…  Hubris.

Hubris /ˈhjuːbrɪs/, also hybris, from ancient Greek ὕβρις, means extreme pride or arrogance. Hubris often indicates a loss of contact with reality and an overestimation of one’s own competence or capabilities, especially when the person exhibiting it is in a position of power.  Full definition here.

Taking a short trip down memory lane, I recall the second year of President Obama’s first term.  At the beginning of that year he was being roundly criticized for appearing on television with unfettered frequency never before matched by any sitting president.  By the end of that year his party had lost the control of the House to the Republicans.  This happened to the dismay of those who predicted victory based on the turnout from his huge 6-point win 24-months prior.

I remember his demeanor being one of shock… for several months he seemed sullen and in a state of disbelief given such results.  I’m not sure he’s been quite the same since.

But, Barack Obama genuinely believed his victory over one of the oldest, “whitest”, most “war-mongering”, least Republican candidates in 2008 was not because he was a young, articulate, African-American… he believed it was because he had a mandate for his Socialist Ideas.  He actually thought the voters were listening to the meaning of his words… not just enjoying the beat, and hopped up on the desire to feel like their lives mean something… historic.

If you take a moment and slip on his size 12’s, you could understand this.  It’s undeniable, He spelled out his plan in “Blue Print for America”, his books, his speeches and with the people he surrounded himself with.  He was not keeping his Socialist values a secret… just ask Joe the Plumber.  Frankly, just ask any of us who were screaming at the top of our lungs exactly because we DID read his Blue Print, speeches and books.

President Barack Obama believed, and still believes, that the masses agree with him.  To him, The Ends of Social Justice… being Equality of Outcome with Government at the Center of every Solution… is justified by the Means of having the U.S. kneel before the world while using Government Force to destroy any Opposition to the Socialist Utopia.

I suggest the reason we are seeing all of these “non-existent” scandals come to light is a brilliant by-product of our founding Fathers Constitutional design.  This type of malfeasance will always surface in a transitional government.  When individuals within ones own party are interested in securing power for themselves, and your time is up… as mandated by law, anything you’ve been doing is up for review.  When I say anything, I mean trampling on the First, Second and Fourth Amendments.  It has to scream for Pepto-Bismol when the Benghazi Whistleblowers are all Democrats… who then are testifying that we (the U.S.) could have sent assistance which might have resulted in saving the lives… of a Democrat Ambassador and his Democrat security personnel.

It also has to cause his ulcer to bleed when his fellow Democrats join the chorus of those demanding investigations of the IRS for political targeting.

Finally, he and his Administration must be suffering from Elitist Arrogance when they start using the Countries Security Services to investigate the Press for doing their job… well, at least when the Press are doing the part of their job which the Administration finds disagreeable.  The Press… the one ally the Leftists count on.  The enablers of government vice.  (The press giving any oxygen to this is unbelievable.  Talk about biting the hand that feeds you…)

I will state again, nothing is going to cause this President to be Impeached.  It will not happen.  And he knows it.

I don’t care if Congress finds out this Administration was selling missiles to Syrian Rebels associated with Al Qaeda.  I don’t care if they find out the IRS was coordinating their efforts to oppress Conservative Opposition with the FBI, DHS and OSHA.  I don’t care if they find out transcripts exist of the AP reporters personal calls to their spouses, girlfriends, boyfriends, etc. which are being passed around DOJ for laughs.  And, I don’t care if we discover that help was truly available to be sent to Benghazi but was told to stand down because it might appear to be too “American”, or as the Leftists put it too “Militaristic”, which we also find out was the same reason they were there without the appropriate security in the first place.  I don’t even care if they find out the President is sleeping with Valerie Jarret and Susan Rice, at the same time, then lied about it under oath in order to escape a sexual harassment lawsuit based on law he directly championed.

Only an extremely over blown sense of competency, arrogance and undeserved righteousness could fuel such behavior.

However, none of this matters.  We have 3 1/2 more years of this guy and his Fellow Travelers.  That’s just the way it is.

But that doesn’t mean we have to sit by and watch them destroy what little of the Constitution and Bill of Rights which remain intact.

Get ready for the mid-terms.  (Update 112014… we won.  but it might not be enough if we still have no spine.)

It’s possible they believe there are no scandals… Hubris would explain that too.

If you make sh*t up, then write it down… and read it, you might just begin to believe it.  Such is the way of the Leftist.


Since we’re Jumping to Conclusons regarding the Boston Marathon…

I think I’ll join in…

News Flash!:

Dateline 031513

Obesity Rights group bombs Boston Marathon.

The Obesity Rights Congress of America, a terrorist organization affiliated with Fatah Allah Tamil Tribes of Yemen, today claimed responsibility for the bombing of the Boston Marathon.

In an unsourced internet post an anonymous spokesperson said: “How many more Runners must die before the world realizes we should get special rights too?!  I’d say more but I have to go to lunch.”

Now back to Shepard Smith vamping out loud about every conceivable scenario imaginable…  where is Richard Jewel when we need someone to blame?  Oh, right… he’s dead.  What about timothy…. too skinny, and also dead.  I guess I have to leave the conjecture to Shep.
