Future Presidents’ Club

PLEASE!  go to Powerline and watch the entire video of the alleged “taunting” of a “native American elder” by white kids in MAGA hats .its under “What’s  news” .

That young man in the red hat, who became the primary object of media obloquy, stands there throughout, smiling as the “elder” beat a drum in his face.  He says: nothing.... [Read More]

Scott Adams Apologizes

I am glad to find out that the Catholic boys have gotten some vindication. I in no way so them as being a threat or rude. They were smiling and looking like they were have a good time. Too bad the MSM had to make them racist out to pick on some old Native American. I wonder if they have enough for a defamation suit against CNN.... [Read More]

Saith The Preacher

Because of the winter storm, our TV was a little wobbly this AM.  So my husband was watching  Joel Osteen.  He admires him as a motivational speaker.  The raven-haired maven was preaching about adversity, “the pruning season” as he said, when you may lose your job, lose a friend, suffer a health crisis–oh, but if we are never cut back, we can never bloom to our fullest, he said.  God the gardener knows best, He will prune, He will cut!  but to our ultimate good. We will flower again, more luxuriantly than before!

And I began to cry.... [Read More]

Excellent Empire

I just checked, inspired by news footage of a healthy lookin’ young gent waving the Honduran flag, marching north to invade our country:

Honduras gets, or rather is getting, $2.6 B. In US dollars.  It’s s’posed to be spent a third on “improving democracy”, a third on economic development, a third on education and social programs.... [Read More]

Military Funding & The Wall

I’d come to a few of the conclusions included in this article from American Thinker, but hadn’t completely pierced the funding relationship between the military and immigration.  Plus, it contains a great interpretation of a “MacGuffin”, in stark contrast to Jonah Goldberg’s recent use of it in his latest.

I remain positive about the entire issue, because Trump is about a billion times smarter than his opponents, even though they are firmly aided and abetted by the increasingly irrelevant MSM.  Buck up, little campers!... [Read More]

Spectacular Women (and Men)

This is a spectacular performance of a (very) original song by the singer Stevie Nicks. I heard this song when it was out. It was a hit but I didn’t appreciate like I do now.
These were the days (or a strange period) where musicians write and express their own through music and lyrics. It’s direct.
Musically and structurally, this is a very interesting song. But let’s just say it’s operatic.The musical line carries us through the dream, the poem and the expression of this woman.

Watch Stevie express herself. These are her words.
The cinematography is excellent, it focuses a bit too much on Stevie, but how can you not?
The band and back-up singers are great and the harmonies by Stevie and the back-up singer at the end was a musical bombshell. This was clearly live, and if you watch it to the end you see why she gave such a great performance.... [Read More]

Refugiadas Venezolanas

We are about to face a new flood of economic refugees. We need border security as soon as we can get it. President Trump needs to mobilize Army and National Guard resources to aid Border Patrol and ICE to stem the anticipated flow.

Remember what a disaster it was for Europe when four million Syrians fled their homes? Perhaps our situation is not nearly so dire, but the United Nations is predicting two million people will flee Venezuela this year. That is a lot of refugees. Many will go to Brazil or other parts of South America. Columbia is the obvious first choice for many Venezuelans, but Columbia is already flooded with one and a quarter million Venezuelan refugees. Three million people have left Venezuela in the past two years. Venezuelans are going to be headed for America.... [Read More]
