Open Thread

More and more people are coming to the conclusion that liberal women don’t like men because they hang out with liberal men – Dem Rep Ellison accused of abuse. The MSM has been offering excuses as to why this story – apparently around for years – is only now coming out. Seems they are claiming that they couldn’t verify the details…if only Ellison had written an entry into a high school year book…

Don Surber points out that, so far, Trump is winning the trade war. The bottom line is that the American market is the most valuable in the world. And not just by a little bit…we are vastly richer than any other nation. By a long ways. To be sure, there are a few nations with higher per capita income than us, but we’re the only nation in the top 30 with a population over 150 million people. Its not just that we, as individuals, have a lot of money but that there are so many of us. No nation wants to be excluded from the American market. Sure, China and India have more people (do you realize we’re the third most populous nation in the world? I don’t think most Americans know that), but they are a lot poorer…so, even though there’s more of them, they simply can’t buy as much as we can. Our leverage in international trade is absolute – we can pretty much force everyone to do as we wish simply by threatening to cut them out of our market. Trump is doing that – and the world will knuckle under.

Democrats are now in favor of socialism. No, this isn’t a report from 1980.

Lesbian professor sexually harasses gay man…um, isn’t that doing lesbian wrong? Or am I missing something here?

Trump hung out with some bikers and one of the bikers had a tattoo which said, in effect, “I love guns and titties”. Liberals grabbed their smelling salts. I admit that the sentiment is crude, but I think that a broad swath of the American electorate is in tune with it.

As an aside, I think the next Civil War may be rather short.

Kurt Schlichter points out that Never Trump is actually Never You.

DeBlasio had his bully boys haul away a reporter who asked an impertinent question. But, yeah, Trump is the threat to the press.

      And Brennan finally had his security clearance pulled.

      Everyone needs to recharge once in a while. I find myself watching less and less “news,” and I’m not even on vacation. I know Amazona has done likewise. It would be one thing if you would learn something from the news, but so much of what’s out there is either on its face false, or the facts are so distorted that it’s worthless. I have to laugh when I hear someone say they watch the news so they can be a more informed voter.

      I can’t believe it took so long to fire Strozk, but, from the YCMTSU file, I saw on the “news” last night that he still has his security clearance. In what universe does that make sense?

        In what universe does that make sense?

        Maybe in a universe where millions of Americans voted to elect, as president, a woman who otherwise would not qualify for a security clearance.

        But she was the right gender and she correctly identified all the right victim groups from this oppressive capitalistic society …. and let’s be honest, isn’t that what’s really important?

      • Retired Spook August 16, 2018 / 9:46 pm

        Unfortunately, for about 65 million people that IS what’s important.

        I can barely even tolerate local news any longer…its just drivel. Turns out, watched Network on Turner last night…it is still valid.
