smirking-trumpThe pundits are flabbergasted by the Republican turnout for Karen Handel in Georgia. They don’t know what to make of it.

I do.

They made it about Trump, and the Trump voters showed up. They don’t always, like in small town New Hampshire for a relatively meaningless state House race, but they do turn out for elections where Trump is directly challenged, even when he’s not running.

They also, more often than not, are keeping that support to themselves for all the obvious reasons. Democrat domestic terrorists and their ideological inquisitors make them reluctant to speak out publicly, privately, or at all. Read the whole thing!

SyphilisNot everyone in New Hampshire suffered from a “drought” last year.

(Patch) In 2016, the highest number case ever — 104 — were reported. The outbreak in New Hampshire is consistent with national trends and is being seen mainly in men under age 40 and in men who have sex with men (MSM). Approximately 60 percent of cases have been in Hillsborough and Rockingham Counties.

Does anyone else find it funny that men having sex with men is abbreviated MSM? Talk about a cruel irony. Read the whole thing!

Choose Life - encourage fatherhoodSome Democrats could care less about when an abortion happens. They’re convinced that it is not “alive” nor is it “a life” until it registers and votes Democrat.

Then there are the Americans who avoid the subject, approach it unwillingly, or concede some level of support for the practice (meaningfully or just to avoid conflict) who will tell you that they are not sure about when life begins. It’s at some arbitrary point during the pregnancy, a value subject to change based on the hostility of the company they find themselves in, but they won’t be nailed down on when.

OK. Let’s say, hypothetically, that there is some point during pregnancy at which this thing called life begins. Put down your flash card; it does not matter when. We don’t need any social or political posturing about the week be it 20, 30, 40, or 400 (for you child hating nutty bioethicists). All that matters is that you, whoever you are, answer this question honestly. Read the whole thing!

“Liberals are for helping people who are disadvantaged, while I think conservatives want to stop people from being disadvantaged,” he explained. “In other words, liberals want to help the poor while they’re poor, but really the biggest benefit is to stop them from being poor, and that’s something they [liberals] have little interest in.”

CNN finally accepted reality and projected that Karen Handel would win GA06 against T Jon Ossoff a couple of minutes after 10pm last night, but one sharp viewer caught the faces of their election panel about 10 minutes earlier, as it was becoming clear that their Pajama Boy had run out of hope:

Karen HandelRepublican Karen Handel is the winner of the special congressional election in GA-6. She beat Democrat Jon Ossoff (who doesn’t even live in the district in which he ran), despite having 23.6 million in campaign donations, mostly from California and Martha’s Vinyard Democrats.

The Democrats pinned their hopes on the Georgia race as their chance prove that all the media narratives they’ve been fostering are true: that America is turning against President Donald Trump. That didn’t happen. Not once but twice. They lost another congressional race in South Carolina as well making them ( I believe) 0-6 for congressional seats since the Presidential election.

This is too good to not print!

Lawrence-John-RippleO. Henry couldn’t have written a story with a more fitting surprise ending. The “hero” of this tale is 71-year-old Lawrence John Ripple, of Kansas City, Kan., who up until last September suffered under the weight of a bad marriage. It was then that he hatched a plan to escape from his wife. He entered a local bank and handed the teller a note that read, “I have a gun, give me money.” She complied, giving him all the cash in her till — $2,924 in total.

But instead of fleeing, Ripple did something unprecedented. He sat down in the bank lobby and waited for the police to arrive. When they did, he calmly announced,  “I’m the guy you’re looking for.”

minwage vs Teens

That’s just at the Federal Minimum Wage level of $7.25. Wait for the results to come in for all the cities and States that went to $15/hour. Go ahead, you tell me what is going to happen to that typical wet-behind-the-ears high school sophomore with an entry level/part time job when it kicks that high simply because Socialists believe in redistributing someone else’s wealth because it makes them feel good.

When contrasted with a dream of perfection, capitalism was manifestly at a disadvantage. But with the advent of socialist economies (Communist Russia, China) and the semisocialist, or “mixed,” systems of Scandinavia, Britain, and New Deal America (to say nothing of the “national” socialisms of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy), capitalism no longer requires apologists. Under any comparative audit of systems it comes out very well indeed. It may have its islands of poverty, its “contractions,” but it does not murder people as a matter of policy or shut them up in concentration camps. It does not force men and women to accept uncongenial occupations or goods that are subjected to the approval of a small “planning” bureaucracy. It does not reduce life to a continual round of abject permissiveness.

Supreme_Court_Building_at_DuskGrab your ‘shovels’ and mount your “plows” ladies and gentleman because it’s time to move some snowflakes. The Supreme Court has unanimously confirmed that there is no hate Speech exception to the first amendment. Justice Kennedy writing for four justices said,

A law found to discriminate based on viewpoint is an “egregious form of content discrimination,” which is “presumptively unconstitutional.” … A law that can be directed against speech found offensive to some portion of the public can be turned against minority and dissenting views to the detriment of all. The First Amendment does not entrust that power to the government’s benevolence. Instead, our reliance must be on the substantial safeguards of free and open discussion in a democratic society.

Concord_Monitor_logoHere’s the question that never gets asked: “When is enough, enough?”  The corollary is “With constant wage and benefit increases when is high, high enough?  At what point do you say ‘Enough!’?”  I recently posted on how Illinois’s budget crisis is so bad that Powerball will no longer let Illinois participate.  Much of the budget problem they are facing is due to underfunded pensions.  Given that it IS Illinois/Chicago land, much of that is due to politicians having made expensive promises to union/govt workers that, wait for it….wait,  that they could never pay off.  And the courts have said, pay it anyways.  Just like California where towns are having to cut services to citizens because they owe too much to govt retirees who are often making more, much more, than the taxpayers paying for it.  It’s almost as if taxpayers exist only to pay for someone else’s wages.

Pravda on the Merrimack has the story in Concord (really, is the Monitor going soft on socialism??) where wages and pension costs are now eating into services that should be delivered (reformatted, emphasis mine):

The prediction was right. Over the course of the day, the page would issue two more warnings that the city’s three ambulances were simultaneously occupied. These familiar posts receive a reliable response: commenters electronically rolling their eyes at the city’s decision not to add an additional ambulance in the upcoming budget year.

But their suggestions that the city council has been stingy on public safety aren’t backed up by the numbers. The budgets of Concord’s police and fire departments have increased by more than $7 million combined – or 37 percent – since 2010.  That expense has been driven almost entirely by salaries and benefits, which on average over that time increased more than $800,000 a year, crowding out new requests for things like ambulances and K-9 units.  After salaries and benefits are paid, the amount left over for each department – less than 6 percent of the bottom line – will be smaller next year than it was eight years ago.

Oil well pump

When Donald Trump announced his administration’s departure from the Paris Climate Accords the usual suspects came out and said the usual things. The Democrats, environmental left, and the media have been grinding their anti-Trump axes on this for weeks, all the while forgetting to mention how they are also siding with Big Oil.

Big Oil does not want Mr. Trump to back out of that agreement. Big Oil Loves the Paris Accords.

drug use heroinThe rise in opioid-related deaths has resulted in an increase in available organs for transplant.

The left always likes to believe they are super smart but it seems odd that they still haven’t figured out why they lost the last election, not just at the federal level but across the country at the state level as well.

Rather than reflect on why they lost, they are doubling-down and doing the exact same things that drove their own party members to vote for Trump as well as millions of regular Americans. It wasn’t just that Hillary was a terrible candidate or is the most corrupt politician in the United States, it’s the left’s own behavior over the past 8 years that drove people away.

Last week, a man from Illinois opened fire on Republicans practicing for a bi-partisan charity baseball game in Virginia. The man was obsessed with his hatred for Republicans, the wealthy and Trump all while professing his adoration for Bernie Sanders. The man had decided back in March that “Trump and Company must be destroyed.”

The man was a 66 year old Democrat who left his home in Illinois with what now appears to be specific intentions to murder Republicans. According to reports, he asked who was practicing on the field – Democrats or Republicans? The man then opened fire on the unarmed Congressional Republicans, severely wounding House Majority Whip Steve Scalise who is third in line for power. Because of Scalise’s position in the House of Representatives, he has Capitol Police protection. The only thing that saved others from being slaughtered were the good guys with guns.

From the “Nothing Democrats Promise Comes True” File: Seattle Gun Tax Failures

by Steve MacDonald June 17, 2017

From Legal Insurrection: After Seattle’s Gun Tax: Lost Jobs, Little Revenue, More Violent Crime. Is anyone who is not a liberal surprised? Although Seattle’s gun tax was supposed to bring in $300,000 to $500,000, it’s brought in less than $200,000.  The money was supposed to be used to “study” gun violence and to somehow lower […]

What Communist Doesn’t Support Violence?

by Ed Naile June 16, 2017

It is silly to argue that Socialist Revolutionary Bernie Sanders does not promote hatred and violence. He is merely biding his time and getting away with as much as he can. Bernie is a life-long New York leftist who hasn’t even adopted the English language yet. He still spouts an extra-thick Bronx dialect. Nothing has […]
