Ridiculousness in the News

These almost weekly stories about ridiculous political correctness in our society, as well as those about the latest liberal fads, make me cringe.  Doesn't our Navy have more important things to do than study "gender neutrality" and worry about the word "man" in job titles like "yeoman"?

And don't colleges have more important things to do, like educating students so they can function in the real world, than talking about letting students "decide their own pronouns"? "The change comes as more college students are identifying with identities that are more fluid, experts say." I don't even know how you come up with such ridiculous ideas in the first place. What does this even mean? I'm sure all this will really help these students when they apply for jobs and go on interviews.


This article shows why we're not better off now than we were eight years ago, and why we can't afford the continuation of Obama's presidency through Hillary Clinton.  Remember when she spoke of being a "co-president" with her husband? Now the co-presidents would be Hillary and Obama, a concept too awful to imagine.

James Comey & The F.B."Oy".

The daily scandals involving Hillary Clinton and the e-mails are bad enough, but James Comey keeps making the FBI look more inept and complicit. Read Paul Sperry's column, which says, "In other words, the fix was in. Either that, or Comey led one of the shoddiest probes in FBI history. God help us if that’s the way he’s investigating the 1,000-plus ISIS terrorist cases now open in all 50 states."

And here's a comforting statement from Comey; he's warning of a "terrorist diaspora like we´ve never seen before." Yes, ISIS is definitely on the run!

Just Like Obama

Look familiar?

If nothing else, if she does somehow become our next President (heaven forbid!), blogging will become more popular than ever, and so will graphics like the one above. Fawning by the press, which was bad enough when Obama was elected, will reach new heights. The country will continue to suffer, but what difference does it make!

This graphic comes from The Bookworm Beat at WoW! Magazine.

Argus Hamilton Quips

Here's an item from the latest Argus Hamilton column:  "Hillary Clinton's spokeswoman said early Monday that Hillary is prepared to shatter the glass ceiling and be the first woman elected president of the United States. She loves the sound of that glass breaking. Hillary's the reason all the White House china looks like it's been glued back together."

The Donald vs. The Liar

Why put yourself through the stress of looking at Hillary Clinton's new face and listening to her shrill, hectoring voice, when all you need to do is follow Stephen Green as he drunkblogs the debate at VodkaPundit?

As he tweeted, "Somebody hit 's ESC key."

Farewell to The King

Arnie's Army has lost its General - the great Arnold Palmer has died.  When I saw him sitting and looking shockingly frail as honorary starter at this year's Masters, I knew it wouldn't be long till we heard this news.  We all grew up with him in our lives, he was charismatic and generous, and you never heard a negative word about him. He had a wonderful life filled with friends and fans.  This next week, with all its tributes, will surely be very special.

Shouldn't This Be Illegal?

Of all the blatantly, brazen, contemptuous schemes yet!  "DHS trying to rush citizenship applications in bid to affect election, memo shows."

And you can sure bet they're not approving applications so these the illegal aliens will vote Republican!

Just remember this about the Democrats, and especially Obama: the fish rots at the head.  And this fish really stinks!

There's more than usual to discuss this week, what with the terrorist attacks and the violent response to a shooting in Charlotte. Check out Betsy's Page, Maggie's Farm, and Larwyn's Linx, and read this column titled How Does Looting a Wal-Mart Advance Your Cause?

Why can't the police and National Guard put down these opportunistic lootings and riots as soon as they occur? Instead, these things turn into reality shows on TV, with the commentators taking the side of the protesters.Why doesn't anyone talk about the inexcusable criminal behavior of the participants?

Don't Dare Call it Terrorism!

You have a counterterrorism squad on the scene of an explosion in the Chelsea section of NewYork that injured many people tonight; and you had a pipe bomb explode in New Jersey this morning, and it's only a few days after September 11.  Yet some members of the TV media, so quick to call white cops murderers, are employing language gymnastics to try to explain this explosion as anything other than a terrorist or criminal act. One even went so far as to say that the Chelsea explosion may have merely been a case of spontaneous combustion!

It's time once again for the latest news and the most interesting posts, courtesy of Betsy's Page, Maggie's Farm, and Larwyn's Linx.

And don't miss Howie Carr's checklist that lets you know if you're really deplorable or not! Here are just a few items:  

"If you’re deployable, you’re definitely deplorable.  
If you wake before noon, if you call Islamic terrorists Islamic terrorists, if you don’t have an Obamaphone and you don’t believe that global warming is 'settled science' — can you say deplorable?
If you liked your doctor and wanted to keep your doctor, if you wear pants rather than pajamas when you leave the house, if you were passed over for the job even though you got a 95 on the civil-service test — you know what you are.
You may be a deplorable if you don’t think you should have to press one for English."

'A' You're Adorable, 'D' You're Deplorable!

Ben Stein said this about Hillary Clinton:  "She’s in full Evita Peron mode now.

Hillary Clinton talks about half of the supporters of Donald Trump — they’re 'racists… xenophobic… Islamophobic… homophobic… a basketful of deplorables.'  Synonyms for 'deplorable' on Wiki and in many print dictionaries:

'Disgraceful, shameful, dishonorable, inexcusable, unpardonable, deserving one’s loathing, wretched…'

So, Mrs. Hillary Rodham Clinton, who made up a series of lies in the commodities markets and walked away with what was more likely a bribe of a hundred thousand bucks when she was in her school girl days is calling the people who want the government to enforce the laws wretched."

This reminds me of when Obama disparaged Pennsylvania voters as bitterly clinging to guns and religion.  They are two peas in a pod, and I loathe them equally.

A September 11 Friendship

There were many heroic acts on September 11, and I never got tired of hearing about how Brian Clark saved Stanley Praimnath in the South Tower.  Here's an update on their lives and their bond.

We Remember September 11, 2001

And none of us have forgotten.

See other front pages from September 12, 2001, at this Newseum web page.

Daniel Greenfield: Why We Will Defeat Islam

Read Daniel Greenfield's speech "Why We Will Defeat Islam", as seen at American Digest, which includes the following:  "When you see the denial all around you, this is the important thing to remember. No lie, no spin and no scam can beat reality. Reality will always win. Reality is going to win.

Everything we’ve gone through since September 11 and even before that has been the reality distortion field, the one that says there’s no such thing as Islamic terrorism, colliding with reality.

If there are days when you get up and think that it’s hopeless, that people will never know the truth and that we’ll be going through the same motions, twenty years from now, don’t.

Every lie that has been told, every media story lying about Islamic terrorism, lying about Hamas and Iran, every piece of propaganda used to support the narrative, is the little Dutch boy with his finger holding back the flood.

But the flood is coming. In fact it’s already here."

Thoughts of September 11

Here's a Star Spangled Banner for you! Remember this whenever you see those protesting idiot athletes and celebrities making disrespectful fools of themselves.

The Baltimore Sun's headline for their beautiful editorial is The enduring loss of September 11, and we can all relate to these words:  "... a small thing in a quiet moment — a cloudless blue September sky, a glimpse of the Twin Towers in an old movie — can still bring back the flood of fear, sadness and uncertainty that we have never resolved, perhaps can never resolve.
So profoundly visceral are those memories, even at the remove of a decade and a half, that it is hard for many of us to comprehend the enduring pain of those who lost family members in the attacks. Sept. 11 was a national tragedy, but for the relatives of the nearly 3,000 people who were killed that day, it is a profoundly personal one. We lost an innocence, a sense of security. They lost mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters."

It always infuriates me when I hear people say that we talk about September 11 too much. If you ask me, we don't talk about it enough.

It's the end of another week of Obama and Clinton lies, cover-ups, and scandals, so that means it's time to read the latest posts at Betsy's Page, Larwyn's Linx, and Maggie's Farm!

Bonus: when all else fails, Democrats always play the race card, and this instance is not only a particularly ridiculous example of political correctness, but also an example of a former president demeaning himself:   "Bill Clinton vowed to ‘make America great again’ in 1992, now says slogan is racist."  If he had said the slogan was plagiarism, he wouldn't have looked nearly as silly.

September 11 at The Pentagon

Last night I saw the powerful documentary "9/11 Inside the Pentagon", which is also referred to with some justification as the forgotten 9/11.

The joy the people at the Pentagon felt, when they realized that the jet they thought was coming to attack them a second time was actually an American fighter jet, was very moving.

Make sure you watch this program to remind yourself that the horror of that day was not only confined to New York.

From the Wall Street Journal: Philippine leader Duterte regrets calling Obama a‘son of a whore’.  Just another example of Obama's great foreign policy and diplomatic triumphs!
