In a Family Way?

In the summer if 2014, thanks to B. Hussein’s illegal DACA and DAPA measures, thousands of  unaccompanied  children arrived at the US border.  Many were from Guatemala.

Imagine how I felt!   I had sent my own 19  year old “child”  to Guatemala that summer!  (Or at least, given permission and paid, however reluctantly, for her to participate in her university’s public health program in that pestilential hellhole.)

She was miserable, ended up coming home early, and–I hope to God– has been cured of any desire to risk her life in dungpit regions.

But here’s what I want to tell you:

We went to Guatemala to visit her.  We saw Guatemalan families up close and personal.  They carefully held their children’s hands, dressed them in cute little bright plaid school uniforms.  The children, and their parents, were if anything a bit overfed.  They adore their kids! And  I could not reconcile what I saw there with all the reports of Guatemalans perching their children precariously on  The Beast , alone, to take their chances at the US border.

When we left Guat, a gorgeous young woman, working in public relations for Guat, accosted us at the airport and asked how we had liked the  country. Would we recommend other Americans to visit?  Would we, perhaps, like to invest in Guatemalan projects?

Never mind all that,  I said.  Tell me how Guatemalan parents can send these thousands of children unaccompanied to our border?  What do they expect?

She said:  because these children already have family members in the US.  And  what they expect, and get, is reunification.

The Demoncrats had tremendous success with the “breaking up families”  meme .  They used that to successfully reverse the ninety percent drop in illegal invasion which occurred when Trump was elected.  Remember? Those glorious days  before it became clear that even the GOP didn’t have Trump’s back?

So what I’m predicting is, forget the  mantra that these people are “running for  their lives”   to “escape violent crime”.  No, even the tried ‘n’ true mantra “a better life ” is not nearly as good as “breaking up families”.

It is the  US’ fault  these illegals are here, after all.  I think we’re way beyond the point that anyone dare question that.  Therefore it is merely cruel, inhuman, to even try to prevent every noncitizen remotely related to the resident lawbreakers  from running across the border and into their open arms. Starting with the cute little muppets  and extending to 40 + year old “kids” like the “Dreamers”.

I heard some Mexican official say that the main reason for the caravans is not work, but “family reunification “. Olé!   It’s a winner!

(What nobody ever seems to notice, of course, is that the US doesn’t have a wall keeping people in—there’s no reason these so-loving families can’t re-unite in Central America–oh, never mind.)

O Ratty, mark my words,: the Demoncrats are regrouping and this will be their new banner as they march toward their goal of cultural and national deconstruction of our beloved country.

Do you think there’s any way we can win this?

Again with the Cigar!

Why does the cigar figure in our politics so often?  Another fun read about how our warrior prince is decimating the Resistance.  Sorry if I’m boring ya’ll, but my fun meter is pegged.  Mr. MAGA even forced the sacred cabal of Meuller to advance our interests.  I sense a serious inflection point arriving.   Gotta stock up on popcorn!

Musings of a Midnight Rambler

As a student of corporate combat, the shiv to the ribs games necessary to climbing ladders in large organizations, I am having a lot of fun watching the current state of play.

Chuck and Nancy are playing from a well honed script of the Globetrotters against the Washington Generals that all GOP administrations play. They use the media , flash and emotion, cry racist, get the fans in the stands to shout defaming things and their bewildered opponents always give up.

Until now, they have never played against a street fighter, who eats risks for breakfast and smiles when threatened.

When Trump got into town, he knew his enemies were, in order:

The Globalist Investor Class who bet trillions on a weakening USA
The intelligence agencies who interlock with the globalist investment plans
Their tools were the GOP lackeys- McCain, FLake, Ryan , McConnell and just enough senators to make the Senate useless to him.
The media as always
The Democrats

He needed a Senate he could trust and he needed to get rid of the Ryan, McCain group who thwarted him at every turn. Cleaning up the Senate was a big win, and the House is now following him as they have no choice in the minority.

The media has been labelled, frozen and shown to be liars and cheats to at least 50% of the electorate.

So, the tariffs are in and the trade deals are done or underway. North Korea has been moved from imminent war to off the stage.
The tax cut got delivered and the economy is humming. He has a Senate that will work with him and his staff seems to have fewer leakers and saboteurs. If he can neutralize the DOJ with Barr to just do their job the right way, that is a big win.

All that is left is the border. He is going to do it without the House.

Chuck and Nancy have always fought against Republicans who really did not care about the border. What they have yet to grasp is that Trump does, and will fight it out the whole way.

Never bring a kabuki theater dancer to a street brawl. They lose.

I do wonder about what is going on with Trump and the CIA. That battle will never see light of day. My guess is he put in an insider and cut a deal for them to back off and he would leave them alone for now, but that is just a guess.

Right now, I do believe he is just tougher than anyone in the whole political game.

If he wins the border battle by the mid 2019, he will gear up for 2020. Thrill the base, build the base in black and Hispanic working class areas.

Washington swamp creatures are all about process. They mark wins in procedure and rules. Trump and his voters are all about results. Build it make it work, move on to the next thing.

He constantly keeps playing the game for each battle from process and procedure to a results argument. That is why the wall is the critical imagery. You either build it and win or you do not. It must drive Nancy nuts.

It Is He Whose Loss Is Laughter When He Counts The Wager Worth!

” A voice is in the mountains, in the mountains! And I know/That voice that shook our palaces four Hundred years ago!/ It is he that saith  not kismet, it is he that knows not fate;/It is Raymond, it is Richard, it is Godfrey at the gate!/It is he whose loss is laughter when he counts the wager worth:/ Set down your foot upon him,  that our peace be on  the Earth!”

Thus speaks Mahound in Chesterton’s great poem Lepanto,  about the eponymous naval battle in the 16th Century that marked the end of Muslim sea power. (Oh and also disposed of a lot of the Ottomans’ wealth, since they had it on board with them, being  too backward to engage in banking which their foes had  been doing ever since the Crusades…win-win!)

“Don John of Austria is girt  and going forth !”  We have, by coincidence(?), our own Don John, and I anticipate that if he goes to the House to deliver SOTU,  the newly elected Muslim females and their  useful infidels will lead a desperate, Lepanto-like assault on him.   Really.  Everybody made fun of Pelosi for citing security concerns, but :

 what makes us think she was talking about exterior threats?

The bloodthirsty sword-maidens   of the Crescent, Omar and Tlaib, and their fair-haired  Janissaries like Gillibrand, are quite enough to keep me awake at night!

Pelosi fears them. Why else put Omar, “Israel has hypnotized the world,” , supporter of BDS, on the Foreign Relations Committee?

I reckon Lepanto, like all pivotal battles, was, in retrospect, “a very near-run thing”, as Wellington mused about Waterloo.

Will our Don John sail into the hostile seas of the Demoncrat House?

I will be watching in hope and fear!–and:

Dieu le veult!

Fun! Then, more Fun!

Not vouching for this site or author, but I simply can’t contain my joy at the bitch-slapping that was delivered to Pelosi, and can’t stop reading about it.  Don’t be tempted to characterize this as just so much grade school pranking.  If you think like Juan Williams, don’t click on this.  If you think like Emperor Greg Gutfeld, then go ahead.  So much winning!

Baby, Don’t Go!

Loooove  Trump advising Pelosi that if she’s going on her little jaunt to  Afghanistan and Brussels,  she’ll hafta pay for it!

If she can’t go, though, she can just rerun the pictures  is her from 2007,  wearing a headscarf, the symbol of female repression and inferiority,  and kissing up to Assad.  Just photo-shop out John Kerry and it could be current!

Seriously though, how do you think this  is gonna play?  And will she go  anyway? And if so, why?

Weekly Standard Sideswipe

Not much substantive here, but a comment on the demise of the Weekly Standard, which has been greatly anticipated.

Matthew J. Peterson at The American Mind posted an autopsy.  Mark Hemingway, lately of the Standard, posted a poignant and measured defense.  He gets it, but then again he doesn’t.  Or is it parody?

Clearly, Trump’s bull-in-the-Mikasa-outlet presidency

Who talks like that?

Of course, it should be said that James Mattis being the most beloved military figure of the 21st century carries about as backhanded a distinction as being the prettiest girl at a Radcliffe mixer.

Ha.  Ha ha.  Ha ha ha ha.  A ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha … ha.

I don’t get it.  It’s smarmy little inside jokes like this that these tone-deaf morons have to thank for their unemployment.

Peterson is right in his article.  The only thing to be conserved at Bluwark is some effete “right-of-center” jobs.  Maybe Mark is married to Mollie (I don’t know, is he?), but you can tell it’s no blood relation.

Good Riddance.

Epstein Talks about Manipulation.

This video is about two years old but it is still timely. It is about the filtering that the big Internet companies are doing. They control what people see and they slant thing to the left.

The video is about 12 minutes. Let me know in the comments what you think about this.

Something my younger brother posted on Facebook…

I offer no apology for what I am posting, for this is truly how I feel. This is my opinion, not a debate. If you disagree, or find my position offensive, I’m perfectly fine with that. Feel free to unfriend me if we cannot agree to disagree. I wont debate or argue my beliefs.
I have lived through several United States Presidents prior to our current President Trump. In my lifetime, I have never seen nor heard of a President scrutinized over every word he speaks, humiliated by the public to the point of disgrace, slandered, ridiculed, insulted, lied to/about, threatened with death, had his wife and our First Lady disrespected, & his minor child insulted, threatened & harassed.
I am ashamed and saddened by the ruthless, mean-spirited, hateful, cruel, biased people who display themselves as having no civic pride, morals, ethics, decency or respect for our country’s traditions and values. My elders and teachers taught me many yrs ago to respect our President, whether I voted for them or not. All the news stations & reporters who feel they have the right to perpetuate blatant lies and fabricate “facts” for a “good story” are dividing our country beyond belief. Many only report the negative “news” and never the accomplishments of our President. If people do not research everything put out by the MSM, they are left to believe all the hate mongering news. This is leading to so much intolerance that I feel we are nearing the brink of a civil war! No other President that took the oath of office, has been on the news 24/7, scrutinized for their every word, facial expression, decision, handshake, what he eats… NO, he is not perfect, far from it! No President or person is, including you and I!!!!! Yes, he makes stupid comments and doesn’t use the flowery language of a “professional politician”. However, I believe he truly loves the United States of America and works tirelessly to make things better for us all. He is very different than what we’ve become accustomed to, thank goodness. The people who would rather see our country fail than help him do his job need to stop. I was always taught “If you can’t be part of the solution then at least don’t be part of the problem”. I personally want our President Donald Trump, as I did his predecessors, to succeed. To hope for failure is INSANE. United we stand; divided we fall.

I just had to post this as it is the way I feel also. Thank you for your time in reading it.

2019 — A Year Without Gillette

That’s my tag line for the way to handle the Gillette debacle.

People talk about Procter & Gamble, amd there are lists of products or companies forwarded by P&G — I feel that’s too broad.  After all, focused fire is more effective.  And the P&G name is not the one being connected with this nonsense.

The name Gillette has been thrust at us as a champion of the point of view that one of the bedrocks of western civilization, among all civilizations similarly by the way, is wrong and upside-down in its value proposition.  Yet the value proposition of any facet of our culture is that it helps sustain that culture, and masculinity — Men as such — underlies most that is great in our culture, that has been accomplished, and which will be available to our posterity.

Masculinity, and in particular the western conception of masculinity, is that which preserves and expands the circle of affinity for which all will be given if required.  Masculinity exists in tension with, not in opposition to, femininity.  These two primal forces of human nature and of social existence confront and comprehend each other, much as the interplay between God and man.

What is happening before our eyes is not even social engineering, but its inevitable successor, cultural destruction.  Beyond the often-seen cultural vandalism of the left, we now live in a culture of un-tended broken windows, our once mighty civilization becoming just another shithole alley of needles and rapey boy-men uninitiated in their social role and the need to master themselves, and insecure before a barrage of anti-male nonsense.  The left is ascendant in the culture war, and speaks worldly power to eternal truth.  Our political power is a rear-guard defense.  We engage in nothing which is not merely an attempt to counter the assaults of the left.

Merely being right is no defense.  You can argue with the Gulag guards all night, exchange views from the personal to the political, come to an understanding, and go to sleep knowing that you have connected with your fellow humans, but they still shoot you at sunrise.  I have said for an unenviable number of years that facts no longer matter, words no longer matter, being right no longer matters.  The only thing that matters is power, and the left has it.

We cannot hurt Procter & Gamble any more than it will allow — they’re too big.  We can perhaps not even hurt Gillette in a meaningful sense.  The best we can do right now is send a powerful message.  The name Gillette must be made radioactive in a way that ties it to the millstone of cultural destruction.  We may not be able to smash them, to force a behavioral change.

What I guarantee we can do is leave a mark, the same way the putting votes on the record *even going into a sure loss* produces leverage for the next fight.  The GOP is now famously branded as the “fight tomorrow, not today” party, noting the handy truth that the linear nature of time guarantees tomorrow never comes.  Yet effective conservative political warriors take the time to force all involved to show where they sit, to illuminate the place they say they stand.  Why?  To pierce the veil of voice votes and arranged defeat useful to dishonest politicians, and devastating to the polity.

We are fortunate to have been given this Gillette boon at the beginning of the year.  We should take this opportunity to tie three things together — Gillette, cultural destruction of men, and an awful year in the media — perhaps even the boardroom.

I know that we can succeed in making the name Gillette as toxic in a real way as their advertisement is in a cultural way.

2019 — A Year Without Gillette.

Roku kicks Alex Jones off after less than a day

Roku quietly added the Alex Jones channel to their lineup. It took less than a day for the howling leftist mob to get Jones kicked off. Roku tucked tail in record time.

Honestly, at this point, I don’t know who I hate more: the vile Jacobins screaming everywhere, or the corporate world that’s so eager to bend the knee to them.

“The Free Market”. *spit*
