Out and About on a Wednesday

Attorney General Lynch says she will look into those videos of Planned Parenthood looking for “less crunchy” ways of carrying out an abortion. The question remains whether she’ll be looking for criminal activity on the part of Planned Parenthood, or will be out to get the makers of the videos.

Governor Brown (D-Peoples Democratic Republic of California), says global warming threatens human extinction. As soon as he calls for a ban on limos, private jets and beach houses larger than 1,000 square feet, I’ll take him seriously.

Our new Partners for Peace in Tehran say they will buy whatever arms they want.

If you ever thought there was a bottom to the well of Progressive silliness, you were wrong.

Perry rips into Trump. He has to. First off, as a matter of principal: Trump is simply not the man who will win the White House for the Republican party. Secondly, as a matter of electoral politics – he’s an also-ran so far in the GOP sweepstakes and he has to gain some traction. Attacking Walker or Cruz will work against him (their supporters might be angered), attacking Bush and Christy is boring – we already know he’s not on board with them. Attack Trump and you get noticed.

Hillary Clinton is polling just terrible in the swing States. Before you get too excited, I understand the polling sample over-states Republican numbers – but, still, with 99.99% name recognition Hillary is down 9 points against Walker, who probably doesn’t have 50% name recognition in, for instance, Colorado. She’s a giant on weak legs.

I really don’t know what to say about the Bland case – woman gets stopped for failure to signal (with, I guess, also doing a rolling stop at a stop sign) and it escalates into her being arrested and then dying in prison – officially by suicide but the full investigation isn’t close to done. The only bit of wisdom I can impart is to wait until the investigation is complete before rendering anything like a judgement on it.

In the Fundamental Transformation department – newly sworn citizens don’t have to swear to bear arms in defense of the United States. It makes sense – after all, some of the people becoming citizens might not want to defend the United States; why inconvenience them with something as trivial as being loyal to the nation they voluntarily immigrated to?

List of the 20 cities Americans are fleeing from in droves. Oddly enough, a lot of them appear to be governed by Democrats. Shouldn’t people be moving into Democrat governed areas? I mean, they really care about the little guy and have the best solutions for all of us, right?

    Completely off-topic but a different view for a new thread…

    Having arrived at the Gates of Heaven, Barack Obama meets a man with a

    ‘Are you Mohammed?’ he asks.

    ‘No, my son, I am St. Peter. Mohammed is higher up.’ Peter then points to
    a ladder that rises into the clouds.

    Delighted that Mohammed should be higher than St. Peter, Obama climbs the
    ladder in great strides, climbs up through the clouds and comes into a room
    where he meets another bearded man. He asks again, ‘Are you Mohammed?’

    ‘Why no,’ he answers, ‘I am Moses; Mohammed is higher still.’
    Exhausted, but with a heart full of joy, he climbs the ladder yet again. He
    discovers a larger room where he meets an Angelic looking man with a beard.
    Full of hope, he asks again, ‘Are you Mohammed?’

    ‘No, I am Jesus, the Christ; You will find Mohammed higher up.’

    Mohammed higher than Jesus! Man, oh man! Obama can
    hardly contain his delight and climbs and climbs ever higher.

    Once again, he reaches an even larger room where he meets this truly
    magnificent looking man with a silver white beard and once again repeats
    his question: ‘Are you Mohammed?’
    he gasps as he is by now totally out of breath from all his climbing.

    ‘No, my son, I am Almighty God, the Alpha and the Omega, but you look
    exhausted. Would you like a cup of coffee?’

    Obama says, ‘Yes, please!’

    As God looks behind him, he claps his hands and yells out:
    “Yo, Mohammed, two coffees!”

    Keep your trust in God. Your president is an idiot.

    Some things are obvious.

    Wish I could have formatted that better, Nevertheless, I already see the Left defending the “Sale of Body parts via PP–it has become too sick to comment on.

    It’s often been pointed out that Progressives want to re-mold (fundamentally transform) this country into a European style social democracy. It looks like they’ve succeeded.

    Much has been made of the rift between Germany and France over how the European Union has handled the Greek crisis, with Berlin maintaining a hard line on debt and austerity and Paris, belatedly, calling for a more flexible approach.

    MarketWatch columnist David Marsh sees this rift as posing a challenge for further progress in the EU, since it is the partnership of equals between these two countries that has driven European integration.

    The problem is that France has fallen into a political malaise with a series of weak leaders and a disenchantment with politicians as a whole.

    This malaise results largely from prolonged economic doldrums — stagnant growth, persistent high unemployment — as France tries to conform to the fiscal strictures dictated by Germany’s narrow view of economics and enshrined in the treaty terms for monetary union.

    Nine out of 10 French voters surveyed have a bad opinion of all political parties.

    At least most of the voters have identified the source of the problem, but apparently the French bureaucrats are just not smart enough to falsify and manipulate the unemployment figures or to refer to malaise and stagnant growth as a robust economic resurgence. Come on Frenchies — it’s all in the language. Socialists invented redefining words to further an agenda. Get with the program. Geeeesh!

      I think they already have fudged the numbers – and even with all that France’s economy is still lousy. The Germans seem less willing to live in the world of make-believe…though, they still do…they seem to think they can keep Germany when hardly anyone is having any Germans to replace their increasingly aged population.

    Remember when Donald Trump announced his run for the GOP nomination, and I said my biggest concern was that he’d end up running as an Independent? Looks like he’s already paving the way for such a move.

    • M. Noonan July 24, 2015 / 10:38 am

      He could well be the Perot of 2016 – and possibly with the same ultimate effect of the Perot of 1992. But if the GOP candidate can tap into the rage that Trump taps into, then Trump won’t get out of single-digits if he runs Third Party.
