Open Thread

The Notre Dame fire has revealed an intense level of hatred among the global left for the West. We knew it was there, but when you see the some on the left cheering a burning church, you know you’ve got a problem. They hate us and want us gone – and they are allying with the most vicious parts of Jihadist Islam. We’re in for some bad times.

Its pretty much a given that the Obama Administration spied on President Trump – the only question remaining is, who ordered it? Does it go all the way up to Obama? It could: it would take a really gutsy subordinate to order such a thing without the President’s knowledge.

Bill Weld (R But Really D-MA) is going to challenge Trump in the GOP primary. Not a single person on Earth, including Weld, knows why.

Jewish voters are upset with the Democrats defense of anti-Semites. I look at it like this: if you’re in any way a Jew, you’re going to abandon the Democrat party. It is as simple as that – just as all real Catholics are abandoning the Democrat party. The Jews (and Catholics) who retain their Democrat registration are no more than nominally part of their religion. You can’t be in a party which rejects everything you believe in.

Steyn points out a rather large SJW flaw.

Valerie Jarrett wrote a book which sucks so bad she had to manipulate sales to show up on the best seller lists. My view: I bet the manipulation was done with the knowledge of the list makers. No way in heck will the Progressives allow someone like Jarrett to fail – she’s all they want: a mean spirited, anti-American creep. As an aside, Matt and I – still making money off Worst nearly 3 years after it came out – wonder how many sports cars and mansions we’d own if a major publisher had picked it up back in 2016. There’s a huge amount of talent out there which doesn’t go anywhere because the people who decide are slaves to the powerful.

    From Mark’s linked the NY Post article about spying on the Trump campaign:

    In Senate testimony last week, Attorney General William Barr used the word “spying” to refer to the Obama administration, um, spying on the Trump campaign. Of course, fainting spells ensued, with the media-Democrat complex in meltdown. Former FBI Director Jim Comey tut-tutted that he was confused by Barr’s comments, since the FBI’s “surveillance” had been authorized by a court.

    As Amazona has often opined, words mean things, except in Liberal World where the definition of words can be altered to mean whatever it takes to win the argument or get the point across. I’ve seen the clip of Comey numerous times saying the FBI engaged in “court-ordered” surveillance, not “court-authorized.” I see a significant difference between ordering someone to do something and authorizing someone to do something. Generally courts do not order anything except compliance with a court directive, and conversely, courts to not authorize actions without convincing evidence, commonly referred to as “probable cause.” FBI and DOJ officials who engaged in the FISA process to obtain a warrant to “spy” on the Trump campaign have repeatedly said there was significant evidence besides the phony dossier presented to the FISA judge. So far the only additional evidence I’ve seen was a news story prompted by an FBI or DOJ leak about the dossier.

    Here’s hoping that, following the release of the Mueller Report by AG Barr day after tomorrow, Trump declassifies a whole lot of underlying documents related to this fiasco.

      Whatever the report says, we can rely on it that the Democrats will just lie and say it proves Trump guilty. They really do stick to their narratives – that Blasey Ford liar is in some Time top 100 list for 2019. It doesn’t matter that her story was patently false – now and forever, on the left, she’s the victim.

    There will be some fake Republican challengers to Trump because the Never Trumpers, and their Globalist masters, want to try to “damage” Trump in the primary. It won’t work, because Trump works best when he’s fighting someone. But this is the gang that can’t shoot straight, so they think it will work.

    As for publisher’s pumping up sales of books no one wants to read, does anyone think Bernie sold enough books on his own to become a millionaire? He was paid generous advances, the books where trucked to books stores, piled up on selves, unbought, moved to discount bins and then shredded. There are only five major publishers and they are all owned by big globalist media companies. Book deals with politicans are all about influence peddling.

      It is amazing, isn’t it? I bet that most of what passes for “popular” is manipulated into its position these days. Matt and I have sold something like 40,000 copies of our book – just two guys with nothing behind them (though in the past year we’ve had a traditional publisher…though a very small one). 902 Amazon reviews, 4.4 out of 5 stars. The book is popular. If a major publisher had picked it up, we’d have made a bundle. Oh, well. Maybe my novel will take off.

      But, yeah, it is fake Republicans who are out to get Trump…people who were committed to Democrat victory but who lied and said they were Conservative for years. The mask is off – I bet Weld has trouble cracking 3% in any actual vote (absent there being Democrat cross-over voting – though that will be muted, at least early on, given the size of the Democrat field).
