Trump and who he is

After Trump does Trump there is always outrage.  His latest is calling certain countries Shitholes.

Do I like that Trump is Trump?  Not even a little bit.  It would be awesome to have a universally respected person of class as our president, but that isn’t who we have.  Trump is outrageous.  And he’s who we have.  Can we all go about our business now?

Being outraged has zero affect on him.  Just move on.  Bring it all up in the next election.  All the hype is a waste of hype.

 

 

Blogging about the “Collusion”

I tell you, it’s exhausting just trying to keep up in order to think about maybe blogging about a small aspect of the big Ruskie collusion situation with Donald Trump and his minions of people.

It’s a job for, well……a journalist!  Luckily we have one.  Andrew C. McCarthy follows the story and is a great writer.  This is today’s version along with this wonderful recap.  Please click through though.  And purchase National Review.  It has some of the best writers in the business and though they were never Trumpers, they were mostly never Trumpers because they exist in an area of the country where a GOP vote wouldn’t have counted anyway so they could make an ethical stand on personality.  I’m still curious how their vote would have gone had HQ been in Wisconsin.

Anyway – back to McCarthy:

I won’t hazard a guess on which of CNN’s anonymous sources are also the Times’ anonymous sources. But it is safe to say the intelligence community, still suffused with Obama holdovers, has been undone by its own illegal leaking. Back in April, they leaked because they figured it would wound President Trump: After all, if the dossier had been used to obtain a FISA warrant, that must mean that the dossier’s sensational allegations of a traitorous Trump-Russia conspiracy were true. That is, the leakers assumed, just as many of us familiar with the FISA process assumed, that the Justice Department would never put information in a FISA warrant application unless the FBI had first corroborated it.

Doing “something”

What happens when we find out that what is continually missing in this society is not lack of gun control, but lack of connection with God?
Do we then legislate that? People who shoot others up in a rampage clearly have problems. They are missing the part where not only do they end up in the newspapers, but they end up directly in hell. For eternity.
We don’t believe that anymore.
We don’t believe in a God that puts His foot down.
We don’t believe in a God that cares so much for us that he gave his own Son to take on the sins of raging gunmen.
And we just let that go by as we go about our business.

Doing “something” isn’t taking away individual’s right to defend themselves and militias’ right to defend this country from tyrants. It’s turning society back towards a greater power who we want to please because we can feel Him in our hearts.
I don’t know how to do that, but I suspect it would help if we start taking stands for morality. (cough, cought,weinstein, cough)

Dang – Trump has it figured out

Trump has finally figured out that he’ll be the best thing since sliced bread if only he works with Democrats!!
Protests will die down, he’ll get tons of recognition and pats on the back. Maybe it’s the Dems that figured it out. “if we stroke his ego, we can get what we want, because basically he’s a Democrat”.

National Review’s Geraghty is acting like those of us who voted for the man didn’t already know this. “I told you so” he basically says.

Yeah yeah yeah, we knew. The primary voters knew. They are basically Democrats too. You don’t get guaranteed issue, no changes to Medicare and unimpeded government without being a Dem. Yes Jim, there are those idiots like Coulter, but most of us knew. I’m still glad Hillary isn’t the president.
I don’t really care about DACA and the debt ceiling was going to be raised no matter what. So far, so fine.
I still wish President Trump well and don’t believe for a second he has any principles to follow or to deny. He wants to do a good job and people can convince him of what that means very easily.

Work harder to be convincing, Republicans. And also work on teaching the man about not “giving in to terrorists”. He needs help with all that.

911-random thoughts

It’s been so long ago now. 16 years. Kids these days don’t remember that gut punch that morning, though their lives have changed because of it.
Other than those people directly affected, other families joined the military, privacy laws were laid to rest, political correctness came into full bloom since that day 16 years ago. I went conservative along with many many others.
This is my sister’s birthday too. It’s not a good one. It’s worse than having a Christmas birthday.

We always says “Never Forget” and I don’t think we will. We won’t forget that there is a variety of Islam that believes those who don’t believe should just be dead.
There is a variety of the left wing who also believes this but with less violence. They fight against all those things that have brought civilization to where it is today. Where we have fewer people in poverty (and poverty has been redefined upwards), fewer people hungry, more opportunities for so many more yet without the understanding of why. People wish for a simpler time with fewer people and less complex systems of stuff (agriculture, corporatism, information surplus)
It feels like in many ways these folks are sympathetic to the attackers of 911 and I don’t like thinking that way.

I haven’t been blogging for a while because of those feelings. They just make me cranky. Somehow Breitbart usually managed to stay in good spirits when engaged in the fight. Somehow soldiers in Afghanistan manage to remain examples of excellence. 911 happened 16 years ago and Islamists are still trying to kill the infidel and we continue to try to walk that walk between being a superpower, yet not actually sharing the force of that power to be done with the battles. We wonder why our boot camps are 4 months, yet 16 years in Afghans still can’t control their own country without outside help. I wonder how the left can be so open to changing this country so completely.
With that – let’s see if I can’t get this blog going again. I used to enjoy the heck out of it!
Up with the flag!
