Happy New Years!

Some folks are wondering what we should bring back from the previous 20’s. I’m going with Cab Calloway:

Iranians tried to attack our embassy in Baghdad. Trump sent Marines. All is calm, now. Marines are good at that. Democrats – proving they are monumentally stupid – are trying to make this out as “Trump’s Benghazi”. They wish. I can’t be emphasized enough (and count on it: Team Trump will emphasize this all through the campaign) the difference between Benghazi and Baghdad. Obama was nowhere to be seen while Americans were left to die and then a bullsh** story was cooked up to cover it up…Trump was front and center and got the Marines rolling right away. This is basic Executive competence, and Obama did not have it.

Even CNN is pointing out that the Democrat’s impeachment thing is absurd.

Biden suggests that the miner’s his policies will throw out of work should learn to code. There goes PA and Michigan if Biden is the nominee. Of course, not sure Biden will drag his was through…I’m starting to pay attention to Buttigieg; he might be about to pull a Carter: win the IA contest and then just roll to the nomination against a bunch of old guard has-beens.

I’m sure you’ve by now heard of Based Grandpa who blew away a guy working up a church massacre. The Left hates this – they mostly hate that its on video and can’t be denied. Totally blows their anti-gun Narrative.

The North Korea situation is still murky – in the end, it will come down to what the NK leadership wants…to continue to preside over a dead society armed with nuclear weapons, or cut a deal with us and come alive? We’ll see what they pick.

      And Bernie can’t win the primary because those at the top know he would never stand a chance against Trump. But, again, they might consider him a John McCain or Bob Dole—– in a can’t-win campaign why not throw in a human sacrifice place holder while they scramble for someone better?

      Well, there IS that “old white guy” thing that might tick off their PEOPLE OF COLOR who want DIVERSITY. And on our side we have a person of color. Orange is a color.

    Follow the money. “Never let a crisis go to waste” was the popular Rahm Emanuel refrain. Well now it’s never let a crisis go away without profiting from it ….. and this is why Democrats want big government. Democrats are sub human people unworthy of the air they breathe.

    What do disgraced congresswoman Katie Hill, Los Angeles Councilman Mike Bonin, the non-profit PATH developer Thomas Safran, and Executive Director Peter Lynn of the Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority have in common? They are all profiting or have profited from the so-called homeless crisis. There is also a connection among this crew of self-proclaimed homeless advocates of receiving six-figure salaries stemming from ballot initiatives to public donations, campaign contributions, and sweetheart deals.

      Well, DUH! All Leftist schemes are based on two things: control of the masses and benefits for the elites. ALL. Every program imposed on the masses requires administration, requires money, and of course all the money goes to admin first before any trickles down to the alleged beneficiaries of the funding.

      And the funding is always designed to make sure the identified problem never gets solved, just gets perpetuated, requiring more funding, more administration and more largesse funneled to the elites. Fund homelessness = get more homelessness = need more programs for the homeless = need more funding because more people are homeless = need more elites to administer the programs and skim the funding = vote to reward more homelessness = need more homeless programs——and so it goes.

      Repeat with every welfare scheme out there. It’s the same old same old, with those at the top promoting what pays them.

      Pay attention to that pesky 10th Amendment, let states decide what programs they want and then fund them themselves, skip the federal level of administration/skimming while putting more control closer to the people, and you have a Leftist’s nightmare.

    I think it was just a couple days ago that the rag headed SOB leader of Iran declared that there was “nothing America could do” about the chaos and discord his proxies were perpetrating in Iraq. Well, it appears as though their top General missed his flight back home.

    Good move. Soleimani was terrorist and deserved what he got. I also think Iran needs to answer for why he was in Iraq in the first place. And now would be a good time for Iranian students to rise up again against their leadership because Trump will support you. Our apologies for Obama.

    Not real happy with Trump sending more troops into Iraq and I hope it’s temporary. Let’s get our civilians, diplomats, and contractors out of there then bring our troops home. Let’s get the hell out of that sand trap. The best way to solve this problem is to keep sending them guns, bombs, and ammo and let them kill each other … and despite what the Pentagon boys want you to believe, tribes killing tribes in the sands of the middle east does not threaten our national security. The occasional and well targeted drone strike can keep them at bay.

    • Amazona January 4, 2020 / 10:21 am

      I get the impression that Trump has no intention of leaving more troops than necessary in any foreign nation. But I see the advantage in sending the message that messing with us, and our people, will result in consequences the country really doesn’t want to experience.

      Our embassy is considered American territory, American soil. When we react to an attack on American soil with overwhelming strength and lethality, it tells the other guy t back off

    Isn’t it odd how the world is “scared” if a top terrorist leader is killed, but everyone shrugged when Amb. Chris Stevens and three of our finest Seals were killed? Even stranger that Democrats seem more concerned about Soleimani’s life than they were of their own Ambassador. The world is full of cowards and it’s time to flip the script.

    Gen. Mattis had a great line not too long ago when he was asked by a reporter, “what do you worry about the most”, to which Mattis replied, “i don’t worry, I make other people worry”, and this is exactly how we should conduct ourselves. The only people who should be worried are the Iranians wondering what kind of hell we will unleash on them next if they don’t shape up. I were Trump I would simply let the Iranians know that we have a lot more targets identified we’re just waiting for the reason to do it.

    ALERT this is no exaggeration. Right now on MSNBC the panel is saying that Iran is a sophisticated society with “high end restaurants”, and “art galleries” and that Soleimani was a highly educated “protector” of Iran.

    I think I know who the enemy are. And they are Democrats:

      I can’t help but think that everything the Dems are doing and saying is not lost on an ever increasing number of voters. I get the sense that more people are paying attention at this point in the presidential campaign than in any election in recent memory, maybe in my lifetime. I hear people discussing politics at the supermarket, at church, even while pumping gas. Some guy I didn’t know got on the treadmill next to me at the Y the other day and started talking politics (big surprise — he’s a Trump supporter). He said he didn’t vote in 2016 because he thought Trump was a clown (his exact words), but he’ll vote for him enthusiastically in November. I don’t think most Dems have any idea the shellacking they’re going to suffer next November.

    For those Iranian men who have taken to the streets in OUTRAGE and anger – don’t think that our silence is a sign of weakness. It’s just that the men over here are at work today taking care of their families and communities. Something you might want to consider because the society you have built over the last 200 years …. not so great. Maybe a little less outrage and a little more productivity. But if you want to continue to not work and be outraged … well we have solution for that too. Just ask Mr. Soleimani

There’s been discussion for some time of the possibility her House district could be lost due to being redrawn based on the 2020 census. Due to her popularity (??) some have speculated that if she were to lose her House seat, she might mount a primary against Schumer who is up for reelection in 2022. Bring the popcorn!

      The Constitution says “No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.” and I can just imagine her saying “Darn it—I don’t qualify.

    ” It may seem like common sense, but don’t throw up the Nazi salute in a work photo. Nazi Germany is gone. We destroyed it. Yet, an entire West Virginia Corrections Department class decided to give a ‘Sieg Heil’ in a training camp photo that led to every cadet in that unit to be fired. There were over 30 others involved in this tasteless stunt who were suspended without pay.”

    What idiot came up with plan to actively pay tribute using the Nazi salute was a good idea? Glad those in responsible positions acted quickly and appropriately to provide a clear signal for both current and future public employees, given homage to our enemies will result in stern punishment. How I’d like to do the same for some of our politicians.

    • Amazona January 4, 2020 / 8:05 pm

      On the other hand—given the abysmal state of our “educational” system they probably didn’t have much basis of understanding of the salute, or the system it represents.

      There are also a couple of other military groups around the world that use a similar salute, I believe. I know there are units that goose step—-the changing of the guard at the president’s palace in Lima, Peru, has goose-stepping guards and that may even be where I saw a similar salute.

      The thing is, if you are ignorant and you see something that looks kind of cool, out of context of knowing its meaning or background, I blame the people who failed to teach you as much as I do you for not doing your own homework.

    Tablet Magazine’s Tony Badran described how Soleimani rolled during the Obama administration in a recent article. “Seemingly immune from U.S. retaliation, Soleimani spent the Obama years strutting around Iraq and Syria like a peacock in ’70s-style turtleneck sweaters and an array of tailored military-style jackets like an IRGC version of Al Pacino in Scarface, while garnering admiring magazine profiles.”

    Badran also discussed Obama’s outreach to the Iranians:

    This nauseating treatment started at the top. Under President Obama, the U.S. was realigning with Iran, which meant providing its regime with billions of dollars, some of it hand delivered by U.S. officials in the form of large pallets of cash. The U.S. also provided direct military support to Soleimani’s Iraqi militias as part of the anti-ISIS campaign. It was important not to cross Iran’s red lines, administration officials regularly leaked at the time, so as not to jeopardize the safety of U.S. soldiers while they killed Iran’s enemies in Iraq and Syria–a strategy that was variously labeled as “counterterrorism” or “the fight against Al Qaeda” or “the war against ISIS,” and which invariably involved aligning with Iran to kill Sunni Arabs, who form the majority of the region’s population.

    Taking the red-carpet treatment for granted, Iran appears to have badly miscalculated with President Trump.

    https://www.redstate.com/elizabeth-vaughn/2020/01/04/truth-challenged-susan-rice-tells-rachel-maddow-another-whopper

    Rice says “Had we been presented such an opportunity, what we would have done is weigh very carefully and very deliberately the risks versus the potential rewards.” When she was defending lying about the Obama response—-or, rather, lack of response—-to the imminent threats to our personnel in Benghazi they did this—–they “…weigh(ed) very carefully and very deliberately the risks versus the potential rewards…” and they came up with the calculation that the risk of American military aircraft being shot down by yet more Stinger missiles provided to Al Queda by the Clinton State Department outweighed any “reward” of saving the American lives they were delegated to protect. They had the serial numbers of the Stinger provided by the Clinton State Department which had shot down an American Chinook in 2012, so they knew they could and would be used against us, and the fallout from this happening again was much more of a threat to them than the death of Americans abandoned to their fate. After all, the latter could be spun into an elaborate fairy tale of fantasy and lies to disguise the truth, while more downed American military aircraft and crews would be harder to cover up.

      Biden is trying to claim that he supported the raid on Osama Bin Laden when he didn’t so just another example of the alternate reality they construct and live in. I think at this point we really need to examine the emotional development of a lot of people. Democrats being one group of course but I was watching grown men in Iraq cry over the death of Soleimani. Really? What grown men cry over the death of a military general? I don’t think these people are fully developed.

        Men whose “political” allegiances are based on Identity Politics. While our own political climate is moving toward the tyranny represented by elevating any person to the level of near-deity and concentrating power in that person, this has been the political model in the Middle East for centuries. It’s the tribal mentality, in which the leader of the tribe is almost a father figure and invested with great emotional value—not for what he does but for who he is.

      • Amazona January 5, 2020 / 7:44 pm

        What Biden did was run his mouth after the Bin Laden raid, outing the formerly secret identity of the military team that took him out and exposing them and their families to retaliation. Many families had to live in hiding, and several team members were eventually killed.

      Starting with Jane Fonda getting a pass on openly and overtly offering aid and comfort to the enemy in North Viet Nam, the very concept of treason has been so diluted and/or distorted it no longer has any true meaning. Now it is wholly subjective—anything Trump does is treason, nothing the Left does up to and including offering aid and comfort to the enemy and/or engaging in subversion of our own government is wrong in any way. Now people, including those who have sworn oaths of loyalty to the United States and to uphold and defend its Constitution, also proudly declare themselves members of the Resistance, which is openly dedicated to undermining the ability of our president to do the job he was elected to do.

      We need a RESET button right here in the United States—-a real line drawn after which terms are not only clearly defined but then outline consequences.

    • Amazona January 5, 2020 / 7:38 pm

      I am thinking that when the Republicans retake the House and keep the Senate, hopefully with larger margins than we have had, we can start to push our elected legislators to define “treason” and vote on a specific definition with specific terms. We need a distinct line of acceptable behavior as related to how we approach our government. We need to line out the difference between political opposition to a party or policies and sabotage of the efforts of elected officials as they try to do their jobs.
