    Trump and the RNC are hinting that the Democrat Blue Wave will transform into a red Trumpian tsunami.  With Rasmussen showing 36% approval in the Black community, I think a red tsunami is quite possible. But what does a red tsunami look like? Here's an imaginery meme of one coming ashore as Dems and GOPe are partying and plotting impeachment. Click the image to see it in full size.  If you like this pic, feel free to widely distribute it.  And let's make the Red Tsunami a reality.  MAGA!  Go Trump!

    In a bid to energize Democratic voters for the upcoming congressional elections, former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton touted the economic benefits of abortion. "Since 1973's Roe v. Wade decision, the legal termination of more than 50 million useless eaters has saved the US economy more than $3.5 trillion," she told the pro-abortion crowd. "By relieving 50 million women from the drudgery of child rearing the ruling enabled them to employ their talents more productively by taking jobs and earning a higher income." "All these benefits are in danger if Democrats can't take control of Congress to block pro-life legislation and...

    Concerned by predictions that a Democratic "blue wave" could lead to a loss of Republican majorities in the House and Senate, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ken) has devised what he boasted is "a foolproof plan to avert disaster." The gist of this plan is to blur the differences between the two Parties by scheduling a number of votes on bipartisan bills that garner support from both sides of the aisle. The bills the Majority Leader has in mind include votes on the Defense and Labor, Health and Human Services spending bill, opioids legislation and the Water Resources Development Act....

    The accusations that Democratic National Committee vice chairman Keith Ellison sexually abused two women may become the latest case of social mores butting up against religious freedom. DNC chairman Tom Perez reminded critics of Ellison’s behavior that “imposition of Christian standards of behavior on a Muslim man violate the First Amendment protection against government infringement on the free exercise of religion.” “Under Islam, a man has total dominance over a woman,” Perez observed. “First, under sharia law, a woman is effectively only half as human as a man. Using this math, each of the accusers’ testimony is out weighed by...

    God forgive me, but on hearing about the passing of Kofi Annan all I could think of was my favorite breakfast: Covfefe and Kouign Amman Black Covfefe and Kouign Amman. That’s how my brain works before covfefe.In case you’re not familiar with this hard to pronounce (kween-a-mon) pastry it’s a Belgian “cake” comprised of nothing more than buttery pastry layered with sugar that caramelizes to a lacquer coating in the oven. Often described as a cross between a croissant and brioche,I’d say it’s more like a puffy version of a palmier.French palmierEat the first KA at your own peril as...

    Chris Cuomo: “Antifa Violence” Justified CNN’s Chris Cuomo defended Antifa’s assaults on political opponents, calling it “a justifiable tactic to combat bigotry. The attempt to equate this with Nazi Brownshirts beating up Jews and political opponents is unfair. The Nazis were bigots. Their victims were innocent. Antifa’s victims are the right wing bigots who support the ‘bigot-in-chief’ who occupies the White House. Cracking their skulls is a socially beneficial use of violence for a good cause.” In related news, CNN filed a motion to unseal the names and addresses of the jurors in the Manafort trial. The motion asserted that...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) is sponsoring legislation that would negate the control of corporate shareholders and transfer authority to government. Her bill—the “Accountable Capitalism Act”–is, in her words, “intended to replace greedy profiteering with the more socially beneficial guidance of government oversight.” The prime motive for the bill was her discovery that employees share of the income generated by businesses has fallen from 85% 20 years ago to “only” 75% today. “As Karl Marx conclusively proved more than 150 years ago, all the value created by businesses comes from labor,” Warren contended. “It is shameful that any of this value...

    These week’s example of Leftist Logic. From Ed Driscoll, highlights mine: New York City Removes Trash Cans on the Upper West Side: What happened to the baskets? Did they get removed in anticipation of some windy weather? Surely the Department of Sanitation [DSNY] would soon restore the baskets – thereby easing the overflow trash – she thought.A neighbor who shared her concerns called 311 and was told that the baskets had been removed because people leaving Riverside Park were putting their trash in them. “You can’t make this up,” says Melissa.Nope.Counterintuitive as it may seem, DSNY says having fewer trash...

    This week's revocation of the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan elicited howls of protest from deep state apparatchiks. Brennan himself characterized the action as "treasonous. My ability to continue protecting this nation by leaking selected classified information to the media in our continuing effort to blunt the influence of President Trump is eviscerated by this cruel and callous act." Former FBI Director James Comey called it "an illegitimate use of executive authority. Nominally, a president has the power to award or remove anyone's access to classified material. But Trump's selective use of this authority against those of...

    Yes, there is something worse than socialists winning elections in America: socialists so uneducated/stupid they don’t even know they’re socialists. Christine Hallquist, after winning Vermont governor primary: “I’m Not Sure I Even Know What Socialism Is.” “So I just don't have the background to answer that question.” I don’t blame Christine – who’s running on a socialist platform of universal health care and free public college – for not knowing he’s a socialist, heck, he doesn’t even know what gender he is.But come on, people of Vermont, you can still tell the difference, right?Christine: poster boy/girl for universal public education....

One Smack-down after another on the "golden calves" that make up the leftists entire pantheon of jerrybuilt castles in the air. Wunderbar. It's like getting a daily dose of high-powered schadenfreude. Oh how I've come to love leftist schadenfreude and you can too. Leftist misery keeps me up at night mirthful and mightily merry like a glassy-eyed bedlam-ite. (No comments please). I had thought of going the same old route that I've seen before, you know...

    In the event you haven’t seen this yet I highly recommend Caitlin Flanagan’s article in The Atlantic, an otherwise deplorable publication: Why the Left Is So Afraid of Jordan Peterson. A tease: These are people who aren’t looking for an ideology; they are looking for ideas. And many of them are getting much better at discerning the good from the bad. The Democratic Party reviles them at its peril; the Republican Party takes them for granted in folly. If you’re “looking for ideas” the Left’s got nuthin’ to offer these days. Posted from: MOTUS A.D.

    Here’s the deal: My 8 month old computer has been shipped off to the black hole to be “fixed.” It had developed a “ghost screen,” diagnosed by HP computer geeks after hours-long dialog with Raj, my own personal computer geek. No fix available, needs it’s screen replaced. So here I am, working on a 7 year old computer, which is about 1096 in human terms, that responds so slowly that I could create diamonds waiting for it. My ADD brain does not deal well with this so until further notice, I really will be on sabbatical with quick links/pics/or re-runs.Here’s...
  • Understanding Occasional Cortex Disorder: A Public Health Poster (satire)

    Occasional Cortex Disorder (OCD) is a serious medical condition that deteriorates the reasoning power of the human brain.   The OCD brain collects facts, but can't associate or share knowledge across its memory spheres.  If a normal brain is a global network, the OCD brain is a siloed 1980s IBM PC.  OCD causes the cortex to form black holes which gravitationally pull back and stop information from being shared with other spheres. Simple facts the OCD brain can recall, such as: margarita recipes, salsa-sauce-making tips, and kitty litter clean up strategies. However complex thought is restricted.  Questions about foreign policy and...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) Remember what Ricky Bobby said: “If you ain’t first, you’re last.” – The Democrat shills in our fake national news media spent their entire day yesterday trying to convince themselves – and I suppose their audiences, though that was a secondary concern, really – that Republican Troy Balderson’s win in the Ohio congressional district 12 race on Tuesday was actually a “win” for the Democrat Party. The news fakers at NBC even went so far as to run a web piece hilariously headlined “Democrats are Losing This Race. And they’re Thrilled About...
