Miracles Do Occur

In spite of my personal and likely short-sighted low opinion of poetry, I found a piece that resonated with me.  There’s hope for me, Hypatia?  What follows is a cut from an American Thinker blog post by Patricia McCarthy.

“Over at American Mirror, a commenter to a column by Kyle Olson about all this, Roy_Bean, cited a poem by Sir Walter Scott (1805) that perfectly describes people like Beto, Obama, Hillary Clinton, Schumer, Harry Reid , Nancy Pelosi, and the rest of the Left:

Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,
Who never to himself hath said,
This is my own, my native land!
Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d,
As home his footsteps he hath turn’d,
From wandering on a foreign strand!
If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
High though his titles, proud be his name,
Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
The wretch, concentered all in self,
Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
And doubly dying, shall go down
To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,
Unwept, unhonour’d, and unsung.

The poem is entitled “The Lay of the Last Minstrel.”  Has there ever been a more apt description of the recent past and current crop of Democrats in Congress?”

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!

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!

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!
