Lisa Benson, Climate, Global Warming, HumorAaron Brown, writing at Real Clear Markets reports that, according to NASA Data, “the greatest global two-year cooling event of the last century just occurred.”

How could you have missed that news? It sounds a lot like Climate Change. The Climate changed, measurably, and historically, on the altar of the same NASA Climate Temple as all that “hottest this or that ever” news. How could the watchdogs, the scribes of truth and history, fail to report this?

Dems-defend MS13 and Hamas

RULE 3: “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” Look for ways to increase insecurity, anxiety and uncertainty. (This happens all the time. Watch how many organizations under attack are blind-sided by seemingly irrelevant arguments that they are then forced to address.)

RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)

WeddingRings-GayHillary: “Laws have to be backed up with resources and political will. And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.

(H/T:  Progressives and The Proper Role of Government – and your subservience to it).  That WOULD be your argument if you were intellectually and philosophically honest, Ms. Preston.

Well, if JHo said she wanted a “conversation”, well, no, she didn’t – she either wants the NH GOP to cave on the issue or cement the ties in making the UniParty stronger.  Or once again doing her political opportunism schtick.  Or all three.  Regardless of the number, it all adds up to the same thing – you SHALL subsume your own personal beliefs in serving the Party.  Read the whole thing!

Smashing trash can lidGrant is the Editorial Editor for the UL and with his latest missive, he’s both right – and horribly wrong.  First for the good part (reformatted, emphasis mine; his editorial after the jump):

Where’s the big tent? NH Republicans hurting themselves

As a Republican’s Republican for the sake of the Republican Party (he leans more GOPe than Liberty) to say that the NH GOP and elected officials are off the rails is quite the stretch (careful Grant or they may revoke your hall pass!).  He’s correct in that the NH GOPe Republicans hurt themselves but often doesn’t bring what really ails them to the attention of the general public.

Trump has been (mostly) patient with Jeff Sessions, and (mostly) tolerant of Rod Rosenstein, but it seems the gloves are coming off:

If you’re not outraged by the rampant abuses conducted by Obama’s security apparatus on behalf of his legacy and Hillary’s campaign, then you have been living in the wilderness. See Kimberly Strassel here or look at Sharyl Atkisson’s timeline of abuses….

Kimberly Strassel appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show to discuss DoJ/FBI spying on the Trump Campaign:

“So dysfunctional, so 3rd world,” that this happened and that the agencies are still stonewalling Congressional investigators. Not only that, the name of the spy is apparently well known, but responsible journalists are withholding it until positively confirmed.

Strassel has been following this story for weeks, and her columns are well worth reading.

Just imagine if meat eaters were holier than thou about the way Vegetarians treat plants, which are animal food, anyway….


Could be an advert for PETA: People Eating Tasty Animals!
My favorite line is where the carnivore lectures the vegetarian on the inhumane living conditions of farm-raised plants 🙂

Don't mess with Vlad vader

Don’t mess with Vlad vader

Perhaps charging Russian businesses whose principals are connected to Putin and cannot be extradited was not so smart: One of those businesses has demanded its day in court, and all the discovery (of Mueller’s case) that entails!

A few months back, after nearly a year of the Mueller investigation into Russian “meddling” the the 2016 election, and with nothing to show aside from specious charges against people who could not defend themselves, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein, ostensibly Mueller’s boss,stepped before the microphones to read out a laundry list of indictments against 13 Russians, 3 Russian companies…. and a ham sandwich (only the last one was a joke). Made for TV theater, perfect for prosecutorial grandstanding, and unlikely to result in actual defendants in court – what could go wrong?

Russians getting to you, Bob?

Russians getting to you, Bob?

Send for the crash test dummies, because a collision course with reality tends to hurt! In the past couple of weeks, not only have two judges dealing with Mueller’s persecution of Paul Manafort for decade old crimes read the riot act to Mueller’s prosecutors, but more interestingly, the American representatives of Russian company Concord Management have shown up in court to plead Not Guilty and demand a speedy and open trial with full discovery!

BIO MESS ENERGYThe NH House and Senate have delivered three ‘energy bills’ to Governor Sununu that favor so-called green generation that drives up electric rates. One (SB446) expands net metering which means more pricey power from a wider range of sources. The second (SB365) prop up wood-burning plants. The third (SB577) subsidizes the Berlin Bio-Mass plant. All three divert money via higher rates to other people’s pockets.

At least one of them claims to save jobs, but as armchair economists know this doesn’t happen in a vacuum. The state through legislative force is taking money from the marketplace (job creators, consumers, and even municipalities) to prop up their mandates. Money that would otherwise find more productive uses. Read the whole thing!

Democrat Agenda Item - Mothers-Day-gender

Kelly Ayotte, Scott Brown, Walt Haverstein – the ‘Grok DOES have a proven track record against those that promote the Democrat Agenda in any way, touts that they were bipartisan to the extent of voting more with Democrats than Republicans, or dissing the TEA Party.  You can throw in the GOP Platform Principles and both Constitutions into that mix. There are lesser luminaries as well along the way.

No more money for Entitlements

And in this case, it’s always the taxpayer that is taking in the shorts when our elected officials don’t “cherish” (more on Andru Volinsky in an upcoming post) other peoples money. John Cataldo has a great Op-Ed about “sustainability” or rather, how fiscally unsustainable many financial decisions are (emphasis mine):

Roughly 50 percent of city employees are on some kind of step and longevity pay scale. In one year under Yarger-Decker, an employee on the index could receive a step increase at 3 percent, a longevity increase at 2 percent, and a cost of living adjustment (COLA) negotiated at 3 percent. That is a total pay increase of 8 percent in a single given year. Compare that to the increase in spending allowed under the tax cap this year at 1.63 percent, and it is simply not sustainable.

They’re not the ones that have to deal with the aftermath – the union members get their money, the officials get an easier ride to reelection because they didn’t rile up the Special Interest Group better known as unions; they go after taxpayer wallets because WILLIE SUTTON! (er, the guy who famously said “it’s where the money is” when asked why he kept robbing banks).

clownsBY TERRY STEWART

“They simply aren’t wired to connect the dots to the logical conclusion that no amount of laws will stop evil people from doing evil things….
…for the anti-gun fanatics, shootings are the gift that keeps giving

I’ve known Terry for a few years now as we both served on our hamlet’s Budget Committee. I always found him to be thoughtful and one who did his homework.  That said, he’s never been one to suffer a fool on either side of the aisle and in this Letter to the Editor, he hoists one on his own petard. Emphasis mine.

***************

Isn’t it great when the clowns to the left claim to be “stuck in the middle with you”? They use words like “common sense” and “reasonable” as if there’s no doubt they are. The best part is when they claim they are pro Second Amendment because they own a gun and say that the Second Amendment is about protecting your house, like it’s true. Mr. Vervaeke should go back to school and read the Federalist Papers to find out why the Founding Fathers felt the right to bear arms is important. I hope that he reads what they actually said and not what he’d like it to say. Clearly, advocating for gun registration is exactly what the Founding Fathers didn’t want and preventing such measures is why the Second Amendment exists.

stormy-daniels Stephanie CliffordKen White and Marc Randazza from Pope Hat have some thoughts about Stepanie Clifford’s defamation suit against Mr. Trump. White and Randazza are mightily versed in Free Speech law, and it is their shared opinion, more or less, that her lawyer is a dope.

Mr. Trump tweeted. Ms. Clifford (Stormy Daniels) is claiming damages. But there is a high probability that the court will not just toss the case, but that Daniels will be on the hook for court costs and attorney fees.

NHGOP WoodshedI don’t get out a lot these days, but Thursday night (at the invitation of another) I ventured over to the Atkinson Country Club for the Rockingham County Republican Committee Washington – Lincoln – Reagan (Founders) dinner. It was good to see and be seen. The food was delicious and the keynote speaker, Carly Fiorina, was (IMO) excellent.

She made many important points, not the least of which was that sometimes political parties become more interested in winning than in principles. How timely.

pipe bomb…doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome.  Today we saw it proved once again with a side dish of pure Evil (something that the Left cannot acknowledge unless one is white, middle aged (or more), conservative, and Christian).  The insanity is this from the Sante Fe, TX Teacher Handbook:

Employees, visitors, and students, including those with a license to carry a handgun, are prohibited from bringing firearms, illegal knives, or other weapons onto school premises or any grounds or building where a school-sponsored activity takes place.”

And amplified in the Student version:

Fireworks of any kind, smoke or stink bombs, or any other pyrotechnic device; a razor, box cutter, chain, or any other object used in a way that threatens or inflicts bodily injury to another person; a ‘look-alike’ weapon; an air gun or BB gun; ammunition; a stun gun; a pocketknife or any other small knife.”

Thanks PatriarchyI put up my own take on the perpetually aggrieved Professor of Gender Studies who, once again, proved that the Left can’t take ANY kind of a joke and has no problem in ruining a senior citizen’s career over her being offended (yep, that kind of a lout).  However, she renders judgement on Simona Sharoni in a way that I could not touch (emphasis mine):

In the long forgotten Victorian Era, one had to refer to a chair or piano “leg” as a “limb.” The word “leg” was so triggering to Victorian ladies that they would have to lie down on a fainting couch. Today’s “strong,” “independent” feminists have brought us full circle to where hearing “ladies’ lingerie” is an occasion for virtual fainting. And then A Grievously and Perpetually Offended Woman has to run right off and tattle to Big Daddy Executive Director. That’s one tough cookie of a feminist! In the event of trouble, I want nobody on my team who is rendered limp and “shaken” by the words “ladies’ lingerie.” Or by any mere words.

This great feminist hero, possibly angling for a job on MSNBC, declared AFTER the first round of apologies by Mr. Lebow – which, of course, were inadequate and unacceptable — “I have dedicated my life to confronting sexism and I cannot and will not remain silent when misogyny is in play.” To which I, a not insane woman, would say: “Bite me.”
