This is Making Me (You-Know-What) Crazy!

I guess it should be as predictable as the Dodger bullpen giving up runs in late innings of games, but once again the media is blaming President Trump for a highly publicized shooting. This time it’s the synagogue attack that occurred in the San Diego area this past Saturday. What comes out of these people’s mouths is downright dumb and makes them sound like stupid fools. If they truly believe what they are saying, I would question their intellectual sanity.

“Trump stokes hatred toward most Americans. He has transformed hate crimes to domestic acts of terrorism and therefore is derelict in his duties.  That is impeachable.”

“We are so far beyond dog whistles here, Donald. The blood that is spilled, is on your hands.”

“Take responsibility for your actions. Mr. President, you are the culprit.”


“If you took a lot of the statements by politicians right now, including Trump, and you compare them to what Al Qaeda or ISIS clerics said that inspired attacks around the world over the last decade, they would look remarkably similar, specifically this is incitement to violence in many cases.”

Please tell me how this shooter, or any other person who is obviously afflicted with mental illness, can be influenced by a president’s words to do what this guy did?  Donald Trump is not the cause of attacks by a mentally deranged person, and if these Trump hating media types really think that’s the case, they need to think again.

How would these blithering talking heads respond to the fact that during Obama’s time as president, there were 162 mass murder victims with 18 incidents of eight or more people being shot and killed?  How much blame did we hear the media place on him? None, of course, because they loved him with criticism-free coverage and because no president can or should be blamed for the acts of crazy person.

 Is That All You Got, Joe?

Joe Biden blasted his campaign off in such invigorating style. I was moved; yeah, moved to rolling my eyes and scratching my head. I’m sure Joe’s remarks were moving to some, but for the life of me, I don’t know why or how.

“Everything that has made America America is at stake. That’s why today I’m announcing my candidacy for president of the United States.”

“And that’s when we heard the words from the president of the United States that stunned the world and shocked the conscience of this nation. With those words, the president of the United States assigned a moral equivalence between those spreading hate and those with the courage to stand against it. And in that moment, I knew the threat to this nation was unlike any I had ever seen in my lifetime.”

I think the “words” Joe was referring to were the president’s statements after the Charlottesville incident last year. But seriously, Trump’s words were a threat to our nation unlike he has ever seen in his lifetime? Is he really serious about that? Where was he on September 11, 2001?!  Does he really think mere words from our own president are unlike any threat he has ever seen? Come on, Joe. Think, just think, would ya?

Anyway, my head-scratching was a result of headlines that week, such as:

-Stocks end week at new highs with good GDP data

 -Stocks record high

GDP BIG: 3.2% economy very strong

U.S. Economy Grew at 3.2% Rate in First Quarter

-Economy is hitting on all cylinders

I’m not surprised Joe did not mention the current economy that has made his and Barack’s economy look like the New England Patriots playing a high school football team; or the embarrassing butt-kissing those two did to other countries, turning us into vulnerable wimps failing to stand up to the bullies of the world. Of course, paying Iran $150 billion in cash to enter into a bogus nuclear deal and gutting our military didn’t help much.

Oh well, it looks like Joe is going to rely on emotional, nonsensical rhetoric to try and gain his party nomination. I’m not sure if he’ll move as far left as Bernie and the young, socialistic, crusader candidates, but it will be fun to watch and rant about! At least the new favorite Democrat launched his campaign with mindless rhetoric that I’m sure made his old boss proud.

While You’re At It:

Did you see what the new Attorney General (no surprise she was endorsed by Governor Cuomo) for the state of New York is burning to do in investigating President Trump? Yep, she wants to “investigate anyone in his orbit who has in fact violated the law.” She listed potential illegalities involving his real estate holdings, a Trump Tower meeting with a Russian, Government subsidies Trump received and probing the Trump Foundation – along with more targeted investigations.      

Hey ma’am, I’m thinking Hillary Clinton lives in New York as well, so why don’t you investigate the crap out of her, too? You know, stuff like her and Bill’s foundation that reeks of scandal reaching far and wide. I urge you to Google “Hillary’s Scandals” and you’ll see there are more listed than you can count on both of your hands. The one I really think you should zero in on is her deleting thousands of subpoenaed emails, destroying computers and cell phones, along with permanently erasing hard drives.

I’m sure you’ll agree what she did with those emails and devices would land each and every one of us in jail, including you, so why don’t you put your integrity above your hate for Trump and strive for JUSTICE FOR ALL!

Quotes, Quips & Headlines:

Voters size up O’Rourke at L.A. tech school (Headline)  

*Not too difficult to size him up. All you have to do is listen to him for two minutes and that will tell you all you need to know. (Me)

Troops role on the border to expand (Headline)

*Beto isn’t going to like that one bit since he wants to eliminate all borders and let anyone and everyone in. (Me)

The white male savior we’ve finally outgrown (Headline)

*Wow, the L.A. Times has bailed on Joe Biden already? (Me)

“It’s time to take back our own thinking and use the logic and facts that we can all see as to what is happening around us and how we need to make our own self assessment as to how we want our country to continue to grow and prosper and bring about the policies that have greatly helped our own well-being so much over the last two years.

 If we allow the mainstream media to continue to feed us misguided principles and their judgments, as if they are truths, instead of doing our own homework, then we will fall victim to a terrible consequence that will be too late to change once the final bell rings.” (Chris Allen from his column in The Signal entitled “Don’t Let Media Do Your Thinking.”)

*He nailed this; all you have to do is read the L.A. Times, the New York Times and the Washington Post, and tune into CNN and MSNBC. While you’re at it, jump around the Sunday morning talk shows on ABC, CBS, NBC and even the Fox network (at times) for great examples of what he wrote about.

“This gets us to the next installment of ‘Friday the 13th,’ a.k.a. the Democratic presidential candidates. Kamala Harris, you say? You seriously want me to vote for Kamala Harris? And you say that Cory “Spartacus” Booker is just like Kamala, only better and balder? Are you kidding me? Pete Buttigieg? Ask me again when I stop laughing.

 Bernie? Really? This grumpy near-octogenarian “public service” millionaire with three mansions is running for the presidency of the wrong country. All his best ideas have already been put into practice––in Venezuela.

 Did someone say Warren? Warren, the first Cherokee candidate — that Warren? Doesn’t she now want reparations not just for African-Americans, but also for Native Americans? Where, oh where, is that lever to pull for Trump?

 Biden? The creepy old guy who likes to massage women and 13-year-old girls in public? That guy? I have a 19-year-old daughter, and I sure hope he never goes anywhere near her. But I do hope he runs. It feels like he’s been running for president in every election since Eisenhower. Can he lurch far enough to the left this time, to satisfy the woke police? I doubt it, but it will be fun to watch him try.

 I am a highly motivated Trump voter because the Democrats have motivated me up to my eyeballs. I have never been more motivated in my life, because the Democrats are terrifying me. I am locked, cocked, and ready to rock in that voting booth. I just wish I didn’t have to wait 20 months.” (George S. Bardmesser, an attorney in Washington, D.C.)

*I couldn’t have said it better myself. (Me)
