Buckley Presides | Abides

The whole conservative Stop edifice began crumbling, and morphed into Conservative, Inc. on the Lido deck, with Buckley’s passing.  Before that happened, and before Jonah became a crap-weasel, his own term BTW, I Christened a serious piece of yard art as Buckley.  He presides over my pond, and now he sports a parasol in the form of two Agapanthus (Lily of the Nile) blooms.  Showing his age, he also wears a bit of lichen on his pate.

At the bottom left of this picture is a Koi named Zion, after the locale of our honeymoon.  He has a one inch bulbous protruding tumor on his left rear quadrant, but he seems to not care about it one whit since it formed several years ago.  His personality includes a proclivity to eat voraciously and hyper-energetically, like a crazed shark.  The bubbles in the center of the picture are generated by an aerator that helps oxygenate the water during these hot days.  We’ve never seen the water lily leaves mound up above the water like this.  Happy warm days here in the Willamette Valley of Oregon: 94F at 3 this afternoon.

Mother of all Tweets

From CNBC:

Trump tweeted.

Donald J. Trump

@realDonaldTrump

To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!

Trump’s tweet came hours after Rouhani warned Trump not to pursue a hostile policy toward Iran, saying that “war with Iran is the mother of all wars.”

“Do not play with the lion’s tail, because you will regret it eternally,” Rouhani said during a speech in Tehran, according to a CNN report.

Optimism Mode: Engage!

The ruling against the unions power to steal dues by the Supremes dragged me over to the positive side, finally.  I’m usually by nature optimistic and positive, but the drumbeat and drum circles of the Demonic left had severely dampened my spirits.  I’m baaaaaack!

So much winning.  I won’t catalogue the good news from the recent rulings, as ya’ll know what’s been done, but just wanted to share my good attitude.  Yeah, yeah, yeah, the immigration debacle stinks, but it may have the huge silver lining of a super majority, which would defang the NT butt heads and remove all excuses for the GOP to dally.

MAGA, HDAHA, and Good Morning America
