Dem Hypocrisy

Check out this Howie Carr column titled Treat Brett Kavanaugh as good as illegal alien criminals.

I also enjoyed this part:
"On Thursday, after Sen. Lindsey Graham went ballistic on the nonsense allegations against Kavanaugh, Teddy Kennedy’s niece, Maria Shriver, tweeted this out:
'Oh my god. This is every woman’s nightmare. This is a terrifying image.'
Ted Kennedy’s niece said that. You can imagine the response. This was one of my favorites:
'Just asked my wife. She said being left to drown in a car like your uncle did to Mary Jo Kopechne is a bigger nightmare than being yelled at by Lindsey Graham.'
Come to think of it, probably so is having your politician husband knock up the maid at your mansion in L.A.
Brett Kavanaugh asks for no special treatment. He just wants to be treated like an illegal immigrant sex offender … or Arnold Schwarzenegger or any of his Kennedy in-laws."

Mercifully Amusing Question of the Day

"Don't You Hate It When a Seal Slaps You in the Face With an Octopus?"

Lots 'o Links

The little I watched of the hearings today was enough to make me physically ill and even more outraged. The hostility of the Democrats towards Kavanaugh was infuriating.  Every Republican has got to come out and vote Republican on November 6. Do you really want Democrats like these in control of the House?

When all this is finally over, can Kavanaugh sue these "accusers", the Democrats, and the media for slander & libel? I hope so.

Meanwhile, here are the latest news roundups from Larwyn's Linx, Betsy's Page, and Maggie's Farm, with a bonus from Pajamas Media's Live Blog.

Also, does anyone remember the Duke lacrosse rape hoax? Just wondering.

The Tawana Brawleyization of Politics

It's gotten to the point where I can't even watch the news or look at the online headlines. These people seem to be suffering from mass hysteria. Now it's gang rape.  Will the next woman accuse Kavanaugh of murder?

Remember Tawana Brawley, the liar everyone believed had been kidnapped and gang-raped by a group of white men that included the prosecutor? That's what this reminds me of. It's just beyond appalling.

Dregs of America, Unite!

I may be deplorable, despicable, and the dregs of society, but I'm also a staunch Republican who can no longer pretend to tolerate the ultraliberal, crazy ways of the Democrats and their over-the-top Trump hatred.

Here's just one example that shows how differently liberals and conservatives think. "This story never seems to end. There are, apparently, doctors accepting cases of underage female children who 'identify' as males and performing double mastectomies on them to avoid the trauma of developing breasts." Somehow, more than half the population seems to think things like this are normal and acceptable!

The rush to stop the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh makes me wonder: if he isn't confirmed, or if he is forced to withdraw his nomination, won't Trump just name another conservative judge? And will the Democrats oppose that candidacy too, and the next, and the next? It's like how they want to impeach Trump, but that means they will get Pence. 

I just don't get it.

A Terrific Food Safety Tip

I'd never heard this one before, but it will sure come in handy from now on after power failures!

"North Carolina resident Sheila Pulanco Russell shared this tip on Facebook in 2016. But in the wake of devastating storms, it bears repeating.

Here’s how it works: Place a cup of water in your freezer. Once it’s frozen solid, put a quarter on top of it and leave it in your freezer. When you get home, if the quarter is where you left it, your food is safe to eat. If the quarter has fallen, it's a signal that the frozen water has thawed and it's best to toss everything."

Instead of watching non-stop, 24-hour coverage of Hurricane Florence, how about reading the posts at Maggie's Farm, Larwyn's Linx, and Betsy's Page?

Other topics:

Here's the moronic statement of the week: "It’s been so hard to hire people that he’d ‘welcome’ an economic slowdown, admits Indiana business owner."  Fine. The economic slowdown ought solely to be at his company!

Moronic morons of the week: "Inmates eat/smoke Raid & RoachMotel to get high."  Do you care? I certainly don't. But it should make the finals of the Darwin Awards.

John Kerry. Need I say more?

Anita Hill 2: The Democrats must be desperate. How convenient that some unnamed woman has accused Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct..from when he was in high school! Like the person who wrote the anonymous op-ed, she should be named and she should face the man she's accusing.

SEPTEMBER 11: A DAY TO REMEMBER

President George W. Bush, September 11, 2001: "A great people has been moved to defend a great nation. Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining. Today, our nation saw evil -- the very worst of human nature -- and we responded with the best of America."

In case you've forgotten the horrors of that day, here's a timeline:


7:58 a.m. - United Airlines Flight 175 departs Boston for Los Angeles,

carrying 56 passengers, two pilots, and seven flight attendants. The

Boeing 767 is hijacked after takeoff and diverted to New York.



7:59 a.m. - American Airlines Flight 11 departs Boston for Los

Angeles, carrying 81 passengers, two pilots, and nine flight

attendants. This Boeing 767 is also hijacked and diverted to New York.



8:01 a.m. - United Airlines Flight 93, a Boeing 757 carrying 38

passengers, two pilots, and five flight attendants, leaves Newark, N.J.,

for San Francisco.



8:10 a.m. - American Airlines Flight 77 departs Washington's

Dulles International Airport for Los Angeles, carrying 58 passengers,

two pilots, and four flight attendants. The Boeing 757 is hijacked

after takeoff.



8:46 a.m. - American Flight 11 from Boston crashes into the North

Tower at the World Trade Center.



9:03 a.m. - United Flight 175 from Boston crashes into the South

Tower at the World Trade Center.



- U.S. Federal Aviation Administration shuts down all New

York area airports.



9:21 a.m. - Bridges and tunnels leading into New York City

are closed.



9:25 a.m. - All domestic flights are grounded by U.S. Federal

Aviation Administration.



9:45 a.m. - American Flight 77 crashes into The Pentagon.



10:05 a.m. - The South Tower at the World Trade Center collapses.



10:05 a.m. - The White House is evacuated.



10:10 a.m. - A large section of one side of The Pentagon collapses.



10:10 a.m. - United Flight 93 crashes in a wooded area in

Pennsylvania, after passengers confront hijackers.



10:28 a.m. - The North Tower at the World Trade Center collapses.

Tower of Voices

Look at and listen to the wind chimes in the Tower of Voices, memorializing the heroes of Flight 93 at Shanksville. "The 40 chimes, [architect Paul Murdoch]  says, symbolize the voices of the 40 passengers and crew members, many of whom called their loved ones after the plane was hijacked."

If not for their heroism and sacrifice in preventing the terrorists from flying into the U.S. Capitol on September 11, we would be living in a much different country today. It's frightening to imagine the death toll and the consequences had they succeeded.

"Sleeper Cells" in the White House

Think of the implications of the phrase "sleeper cells",  which usually refers to terrorists:  "One former White House official said they were flabbergasted by the op-ed. 'I used to laugh when certain Trump supporters would fret about anti-Trump ‘sleeper cells’ within the government,' said the former White House aide. 'But I can’t come up with a better term than that to describe the author of the NYT op-ed.'"

Here's the real collusion - a well-organized resistance to the legitimate presidency of Donald Trump. What next, a coup? Just try it!

There were so many touching scenes this week during the services for John McCain. If you didn't know better, you would have thought that a president had died. You wonder what things would be  like today had he been elected in 2008.

As September 11 Approaches

There's this PC embarrassment: "A group of conservative students at Ripon College have been told their 9/11 'Never Forget' posters violate the school’s bias policy, citing the fact that its imagery is exclusively focused on Islamic terrorism." 

Excuse me, but what should it focus on? 

I hope students and every other American will finally stop kowtowing to stupidity, stop erasing history, and continue to fly their flags and display their "Never Forget" posters in remembrance of that terrible day. 

Over The Moon

To these idiots who want to censor American history: don't you think that if the Soviets had gotten to the moon first, they would have planted their flag there?

Skip the Ryan Gosling movie and see these excellent documentaries instead: For All Mankind, and The Race to the Moon.
