Full tilt Bozo

Or, that’s what I thought anyway. I suspected that the Democrats would load up, rifles and hip waders, to question Judge Barrett. Instead, what we’re seeing now was once modeled by Jesus. Tis a strange year, 2020.

The Democrats can not come against Judge Barrett because she’s 1. a woman 2. a mother and 3. has two adopted black children. If they say anything against her, they are going to offend even their own constituents. How can they hate her (oh, sorry, Pelosi said she doesn’t hate anyone) for being a practicing Roman Catholic? Pelosi herself is “Roman Catholic”, as is Joe Biden (he tells us). I suspect the difference is Barrett is devout and the others are Chrinos, or RoCainos (either Christian in name only or Roman Catholic in name only). If they come out against her, they will be lifted by their own petard.

So – the Jewish religious leaders and followers were questioning Jesus. As usual. They asked some question and Jesus said, “Before I answer, let me ask you a question: the baptism by John – was it of man or was it of God. The leaders talked among themselves and decided they were in a no-win situation. If they said ‘of man’, the crowd would riot and if they said of God, they would be supporting Jesus. No win scenario. (Jessica has an excellent post on All Along the Watchtower in regard to this conversation between Jesus and the religious leaders – wander over and give it a read!)

And that’s where the Democrats find themselves now. If they say she’s no good, they will prove they do not support women (of course we know they only support ‘certain women’), if they say she’s ok, then they will be seen as supporting President Trump’s decision (shock and horror!!!) No win scenario. They know it. The stance they are taking is that they will not ‘legitimize’ the process. When did they ever? Be that as it may, it’s a long time between now and confirmation for Judge Barrett. I feel badly for her family and I have to admire her – takes a lot of guts to stand up before the Democrats. I understand kevlar helps.

Pretty clever, that Jesus guy. He was in no way full tilt Bozo.

 

Critical Race Theory

We really shouldn’t go around criticizing and demanding that things should not be taught to our kids or forced on us without understanding what they are. That’s pretty much common sense. So what is Critical Race Theory that has led the President to uncompromisingly condemn it? The best explanation I have seen comes from Sargon, and it’s easily worth 20 minutes of your time.

 

I think he is spot on correct. The whole thing is not so much anti-white as it is anti English and American. Why? Because for the last 500 years the English and the Americans have led the world in freedom, in prosperity, in almost any measure that indicates a better life than any other, at any time in history.

The only place where I mildly disagree with him, and its a matter of degree, nothing more, is that all these characteristics are more emphasized in Americans than they are in the English.

There are several causes of this, one is that when our first founders came over they were the generation of English who most adored freedom, to the point that it wouldn’t be long before they fought a war against the King, and executed him. Many of those first and second generation proto-Americans returned to England to take their place in the Parliamentary ranks. The situation of the frontier from then until at least 1900 also shaped us to understand that these characteristics were the way, and the only way, we were going to survive, let alone thrive.

And his example towards the end is very illustrative. Do you know anybody who would want to associate let alone consider her (I guess) a friend? Sorry, I’m not even close to being egalitarian enough to have any interest in being equal to that individual in anything at all. I choose not to run around demeaning myself or any other person, as long as they are doing their best. The only equality I care to share with this person is equality under the law.

Another place where Sargon is correct is when he reminds us not to let the enemy define the terms we use.

Sunday Funnies; The Nomination and More

And so, now we know

Keep this in mind, it is not Ginsburg’s seat nor is it a liberal seat. It belongs to the American people, and we long ago gave the President the power to nominate and the Senate to advise and consent on whom we allow to sit in it. They are doing what we said.

 

The Redhead of the week will never be as beautiful as this one. Right, Jess? Although I can think of one candidate.

Heh! My kind of Governor

But be careful fishing!

And of course

Poker 101

So Danang Dick Blumenthal, America’s leading proponent of stolen valor, thinks he’s in a position to make threats, saying, “Nothing is off the table. If Republicans recklessly & reprehensively force a SCOTUS vote before the election — nothing is off the table,” in a Tweet. In itself a cowardly way to make a mealy-mouthed threat. I think that should be taken as a challenge, myself.

Cause you see, when he tells me that the Demonrats have everything on the table, that tells me that it’s the last hand, and when we win, they’ve gone bust, been taken to the cleaners, any of the similar phrases you prefer. And it’s true, although they’ll flip the card table and try to destroy the parlor, just as four flushers always do. Evidently, while he was enjoying those deferments, he never learned to play poker with men.

We probably shouldn’t blame them too much though, after all, they’re playing with scared money they can’t afford to lose. Something both my dad and Brett Maverick taught me not to do. See they actually thought that after all the good stuff that has happened to almost all Americans during President Trump’s term, that the Wuhan Flu would force the country to its knees, and give them a victory. Whoops again, The Atlanta Fed is projecting third-quarter growth at an annualized 31 % (4% is considered good).

But who is not sharing in it? Why those poor souls who haven’t escaped from the blue cities and states, who are still locked down. Especially California which is simply suicidal. New York, Portland, and Seattle are looking at losing their federal funds. It’s going to get nothing but worse

All the threats aren’t really directed at the President though. Mostly because even the Dems have probably figured out that he ain’t gonna cut and run. They’re directed at the Senate, which has some pretty week spines. I’m not much of a fan of Mitch McConnell, but he has set his career on getting conservative judges confirmed, and he’s done a heckuva job of it. He’s not going to throw it away now.

I happened to reread the Book of Esther recently. You remember the story, Esther was a queen in Xerxes harem when Haman convinced Xerxes to let him kill the Jews. The law said she could only go to the king when summoned. To go without that summons usually meant death. Her uncle Mordecai convinced her that this is what she was born for, to save her people. She did and did save her people. And we gained a new expression, As high as the gallows of Haman. This is why we elected the Republican majority to the Senate.

That’s what the Dems see in the distance. When Trump wins, and he will if fraud can be kept at reasonable levels, then comes the rest, the attempted coup, the Durham indictments, even the prosecution of the mayor of Seattle, not to mention rolling up using even sedition charges BLM/Antifa, right up the chain to their financiers, who also finance the Democratic Party. With a conservative Supreme Court.

See, the President is all in too. Opposing the Dems, threats of violence are the law, federal law enforcement, Barr’s DOJ, not to even mention the Federalized National Guard. And he’s not playing with scared money, because he knows a winning hand when he sees one.

It’s a bad year to be a Democrat, 2020 is. 2021 may well be worse.

Monday Thoughts

I’m not going to talk much about the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, may she find justice in the afterlife. I will say this, if the Democrats and their controlled terrorists think that a threat of riots will deter the President and Senate, I suspect they will have a surprise coming and another big one on November 3d. This is not a time when we can tolerate a bunch of 4-4 decisions on matters that so strongly affect the future of the United States. I’m reminded that two of those terrorists, BLM lawyers in New York, are looking at life sentences in federal prison for torching an NYPD squad car. Yes, there is a lesson there. Make of it what you will.

Along that line, Bruce L Hartman at American Thinker has taken to calling these people we see destroying our cities, and yes, their enablers in the left and the media, the E (for entitled) Generation. It’s an acute observation. They always have been, how many times have you seen a parent give in to a four-year-old’s tantrum in the grocery store, then seen that same kid get a wall full of participation trophies. Read his article, he’s not wrong, but he’s much kinder than I am, I simply call them “spoiled brats who need a good lesson in deportment”, and yes in many other things too. Until they get it, there going to ruin many peoples’ lives, including their own.

Clarice Feldman, also at American Thinker has a three-part article this week, and it’s outstanding. She quotes David Goldman saying this.

The President, defying the conventional wisdom of decades of big thinkers in foreign policy establishments here and in Europe, offered the Palestinians their last best hope for peace. Since peace was never their objective, they turned it down and now they are like the petunia in an  onion patch of the  children’s song — standing alone among its neighbors.

That’s spot on and again Clarice carries the ball admirably, as usual. But there’s something else lurking in the shadows here. I wonder how many jobs, American, and in other countries are dependant on peace not being brought to the middle east. Obviously, John Kerry amongst others has built his entire career from the day he threw his medals from the Vietnam War over the White House fence all those years ago to last Friday on it. I strongly doubt he’s the only one. That’s worth some thought on other issues facing us, as well.

She also talks about that beautiful piece of legal jiu-jitsu that Betsy DeVos executed on Princeton’s  President Christopher Eisgruber asking him bluntly under threat of $75 million in Federal Aid in the last seven years whether “Do these admissions mean Princeton’s non-discrimination and equal opportunity assurances and representations to the Department and/or to students, parents, and consumers in the market for education… have been false and misleading? If not, why not?” Virtue signaling may have just gotten rather expensive. Better late than never.

She also talks intelligently about replacing Justice Ginsburg. I said all I care to about that above, but it’s worth reading as well.

A short take to wrap this up. There’s a fairly long article in The Tablet, that you need to read on how what the author calls America’s China class came to so dominate so much of American life. I think you will find it quite illuminating, so do read it. I’ll quote a couple sentences to whet your appetite.

American political and corporate elites didn’t choose decline. They chose to get rich.

Yep, and they sold out Americans, perhaps unknowingly but I doubt it, to do so. Now they are trying to destroy the President as they have for almost 5 years now.
