The 13th Day

Disliking Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is no reason not to vote for her, according to Oprah Winfrey.

“There really is no choice, people,” she said during an interview that will air next Thursday on T.D. Jakes.

“I hear this all the time — you get in conversations and there’s not a person in this room who hasn’t been in the same conversation — where people say, ‘I just don’t know if I like her,’” she said.


For example, writing in the New York Times, David Brooks sought to explain why, after millions of dollars spent to make Clinton popular, she still isn’t.

“Clinton gives off an exclusively professional vibe: industrious, calculated, goal-oriented, distrustful. It’s hard from the outside to have a sense of her as a person; she is a role,” he wrote.

“This formal, career-oriented persona puts her in direct contrast with the mores of the social media age, which is intimate, personalist, revealing, trusting and vulnerable,” Brooks added. “It puts her in conflict with most people’s lived experience. Most Americans feel more vivid and alive outside the work experience than within. So of course to many she seems Machiavellian, crafty, power-oriented, untrustworthy.”

She’s a sociopathic, power-hungry, nutjob…

“There’s something about her manner, persona, voice, smirk that just grates on a lot of people.

She’s a power hungry liar who will do or say anything to get elected.

People don’t like to be talked down to, and she has a terrible habit of talking down to people, with that smirk,” commented author and historian Craig Shirley.

But Winfrey said the question is not Clinton’s personality, but her policies.

“She’s not coming over to your house!” said Winfrey.

She just wants into your wallet and your life as her eternal servant.

“You don’t have to like her. Do you like this country? You better get out there and vote,” she said.

Vote against her.🙂

“Do you like democracy, or do you want a demagogue?” she said, attacking Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Then vote FOR Trump. She’s the Demagogue.

Winfrey insisted her relative silence throughout the campaign is not due to a lack of support for Clinton.

She is a mindless Liberal after all.

“The reason why I haven’t been vocal, other than saying I’m with her is because I didn’t know what to say that could actually pierce through all the noise, and the chaos, and the disgusting vitriol that’s going on, and actually be heard,” she said. (WJ)

How about: 🙂


14 Days to Live

My last birthday in a free country. Next year I will be a Senior Citizen in a Declining Banana Republic run by the Tyrant Queen Hillary.

And most of the country will be happy.

I will just be sad.

And the Thought Police will knocking on my un-person door about being a White Cisgender Male evil incarnate.

Happy Birthday to me.

Thomas Sowell:

Some of us this election year don’t even want to say the words “Clinton” or “Trump” — and with good reason. However, there is one word that we should keep in mind: “Turnout.”


If we sit home in disgust on election day, we forfeit the right — and the duty — to elect a Congress that can keep either of these dangerous people from doing permanent damage to this country and to the future of this generation — and generations yet unborn.


Control of Congress has probably never mattered more than in this election, simply because of two out-of-control people, one of whom is going to become President of the United States.

We need a Congress that can block dangerous legislative proposals coming from the White House, and block dangerous nominees to the federal courts, including especially the Supreme Court.

Something we havenot had. Just having “opposing” parties doesn’t work anymore. The Corruption and the Elitism runs far too deep for that.

But neither can we hand Queen Hillary a Democrat Congress of any kind.

It’s more complicated/

More than that, we need a Congress that can remove a dangerous President who ignores the law and commits impeachable offenses.

Unlike 201-2016 which refused to do their duties.

Any Congress theoretically can do so, since the House of Representatives has the power to impeach and the Senate then votes on whether to remove the President from office.

But they have to have the Will to do so. And I’m sure if Trump wins and the Democrats control Congress they will be on a hair trigger just waiting for any lame excuse , real or imaginary, to impeach everyone in sight.

Not so Sure the RINOs and The Elite Republicans are that committed. But Hillary would have the Government, Education and The Courts. Nearly unstoppable.

However, as we have seen over the past seven years, that theoretical power means nothing, if neither House of Congress has the incentives and the guts to use the power they have.


Barack Obama has repeatedly exceeded the powers of his office, disregarding laws passed by Congress, and making in effect a unilateral treaty with Iran, exempting it from American sanctions for building nuclear bombs.

Just by not calling it a treaty, Obama has ignored the Constitution’s requirement that all treaties be made only with Senate approval. Yet there has never been a treaty with more far-reaching — and potentially fatal — consequences than this unilateral presidential agreement with a foreign country.

And He doesn’t care. Like Hillary, The Agenda is The Agenda. Period. The End.

Yet who was going to impeach “the first black President,” with the media ready to go ballistic if they tried?

The Wolves of Media St were ready to maul any who tried. But if Trump wins they’ll be salivating about the kill within minutes.

With no credible threat of impeachment, neither of this year’s candidates for President will have any deterrent to indulging their already demonstrated headstrong disregard of anything other than their own interests and their own egos.

Not only does this mean that we have a duty to vote for Congress, even if we don’t have the stomach to vote for either presidential candidate, it also means that we need to decide what kind of Congress we want, in light of the high stakes.

We need to ask which of our local candidates for the House of Representatives, and which of our statewide candidates for the Senate, is someone with the character and the guts to remove a President from office.

As much as a I hate McCain, Kirkpatrick is FAR Worse. And that goes for all the Democrats.

Don’t try to hide behind the lame excuse that “They’re all the same.”

They are not.

Let’s not forget that President Richard Nixon resigned for a reason. That reason was that Senator Barry Goldwater led a delegation of Republican Senators to the White House to inform Republican President Nixon that they would not support him in the Senate if the House of Representatives impeached him.

We know it can be done, because it already has been done.

And it’s what fuels the Democrats to this day.

The real question now is: What kind of voters are we? Those who ask “What can I do, I am only one little person?” are just copping out.

“We the People” are not only the first three words of the Constitution, it is where the Constitution put the ultimate power to make or break any politician. What can you do? Everything.

But I have lost faith in the ignorant, unwashed, media-manipulated “safe space” masses, myself. Maybe they will prove me wrong.

If you can’t be bothered, then be honest enough to say, “I can’t be bothered.” But don’t cop out with a lame excuse. Too many other people’s fate depends on whether you do your duty.

Painful as it may be to realize that we are reduced to considering the impeachability of a presidential candidate, that is a reality that will not go away, just because we don’t like it.


How impeachable is Hillary Clinton? Since she would be “the first woman President,” any criticism of her, much less any impeachment, would bring loud howls from the media across the country that ugly sexist bias was behind any opposition to anything she did — no matter how awful. Hillary in the White House would have a blank check, and she would not hesitate to use it.

Donald Trump has no such exemption. Neither the media nor Congressional Republicans would automatically spring to his defense if he overstepped the line. His impeachability may be his most important asset in a year of painful choices.

But it has to be made. And, we all have to live with the consequences.

15 Days: Make Believe is Bad For You

The PC Police Outlaw Make-Believe

In our surreal age of identity politics, pretending is politically incorrect.

Last month the novelist Lionel Shriver delivered the ultimate macroaggression at a writers conference in Brisbane, Australia: She spoke the truth. And it triggered a leftwing meltdown.

What did she say that caused the festival organizers to disavow her talk? She made the argument that fiction writers should be permitted to write fiction. Her speech—and events that have followed—shows how the secular religion of identity politics is threatening imagination itself.

“Taken to their logical conclusion,” Ms. Shriver said in her address, “ideologies recently come into vogue challenge our right to write fiction at all. Meanwhile, the kind of fiction we are ‘allowed’ to write is in danger of becoming so hedged, so circumscribed, so tippy-toe, that we’d indeed be better off not writing the anodyne drivel to begin with.”


To write in the voice, say, of a black woman if you are a white male writer, is rapidly becoming taboo—a form of cultural appropriation, to use the proper jargon. But such theft is the job of fiction writers. The novelist, as Ms. Shriver put it, is “the premier pickpocket of the arts.”

I was told this on Facebook just this week, actually.

“If Dalton Trumbo had been scared off of describing being trapped in a body with no arms, legs, or face because he was not personally disabled—because he had not been through a World War I maiming himself and therefore had no right to ‘appropriate’ the isolation of a paraplegic—we wouldn’t have the haunting 1938 classic, ‘Johnny Got His Gun,’ ” she said.

Ms. Shriver delivered her speech while wearing a sombrero—a literal representation of her deeper point, which is that the job of fiction writers is to embody characters unlike themselves. If identity politics reaches its absurd conclusion, Ms. Shriver said, “all I could write about would be smart-alecky 59-year-old 5-foot-2-inch white women from North Carolina.”

If that seems like an exaggeration, consider the past few weeks in the life of Kendall Jenner, the supermodel scion of Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, who has come under fire for the sin of playing dress-up.

Ms. Jenner’s first transgression took place at New York Fashion Week in September, where, in Marc Jacobs’s show, she walked the runway wearing purple peep-toe platforms and a pile of woolen “dreadlocks” in various shades of pink, lavender and turquoise.

It wasn’t the babydoll dress that made the digital dictators lose their minds, but the dreadlocks—an apparently egregious act of cultural appropriation. Never mind that some of the models doing the appropriating were black. Or that the locks in question were completely fantastical, like an anime cartoon come to life. Or that the inspiration for the look was the signature hairstyle of the transgender filmmaker Lana Wachowski, one of the minds behind “The Matrix.”

Days later, Ms. Jenner had the gall to pose in pointe shoes for a Vogue España photoshoot. As one Twitter twit summed up the outrage: “The shoot was wrongfully appropriated. Dancers like Misty Copeland or Maddie Ziegler could have been way more powerful and graceful.”

In our surreal age, pretending is now politically incorrect. What’s the over-under on when Brad Pitt will only be permitted to play a celebrity going through a humiliating divorce? Give it a year.

  • “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.” William Arthur Ward
Orwell created a form of English, post-ideological and pared down so much that it discouraged or outright abolished freedom of thought, creativity, and imagination. The author called it “Newspeak.” Importantly, this carries profound significance in at least two ways. First, the term itself means a language well beyond—or below—modern English, which has evolved almost without any direction or command over centuries and centuries. Perhaps more than any other institution, language has evolved naturally and without a command structure. It has grown spontaneously as the profound political philosopher, Friedrich August von Hayek observed, discovered rather than made. With Newspeak, however, the language evolution ends, and its devolution, limited by the seemingly endless bitterness of the tyrannical society, begins. Its devolutionary trajectory, importantly, will be even sharper than its evolutionary ascension.
1984: ‘It’s a beautiful thing, the destruction of words. Of course the great wastage is in the verbs and adjectives, but there are hundreds of nouns that can be got rid of as well. It isn’t only the synonyms; there are also the antonyms. After all, what justification is there for a word which is simply the opposite of some other word? A word contains its opposite in itself. Take “good”, for instance. If you have a word like “good”, what need is there for a word like “bad”? “Ungood” will do just as well— better, because it’s an exact opposite, which the other is not. Or again, if you want a stronger version of “good”, what sense is there in having a whole string of vague useless words like “excellent” and “splendid” and all the rest of them? “Plusgood” covers the meaning; or “doubleplusgood” if you want something stronger still. Of course we use those forms already, but in the final version of Newspeak there’ll be nothing else. In the end the whole notion of goodness and badness will be covered by only six words— in reality, only one word. Don’t you see the beauty of that, Winston?
Second, though, Newspeak serves the function of propaganda.

In the late 1930s, the American public intellectual Walter Lippman feared that nearly all of the western world had politicized and had taken language and art into the sewers of power and power alone. The Anglo-Welsh man of letters, Christopher Dawson, worried in 1946 that politics had subsumed all under its devouring maw. In his deeply moving short story, Leaf by Niggle, Tolkien beautifully juxtaposed the nature of art and the subhuman nature of propaganda. While art leavens the dignity of the human person, propaganda, by appealing to the lowest aspects of the human person, seeks conformity and domination.

Choice of vocabulary, Syme correctly realizes in 1984, leads one to independent thought. “In your heart,” he tells Orwell over some stale bread, “you’d prefer to stick to Oldspeak, with all its vagueness and shades of meaning. You don’t grasp the beauty of the destruction of words.”

Narrow the vocabulary and you, by necessity, narrow thought. Further, by introducing conflicting ideas such as “crimestop, blackwhite, and doublethink,” a persons becomes “unwilling and unable to think too deeply on any subject whatever.” (Imaginative Conservative and Orwell, 1984, 52-53 & Orwell, 1984, 217.)

Like “Cultural Appropriation”.

16 Days- UN Lords a Leapin’

On the heels of being in a Comic bookn store yesterday to find that Wolverine is now a woman, because obvious, a short mean white guy is a bad thing…

The journalists at CBS This Morning on Friday promoted a petition by “concerned” United Nations staffers against the honoring of Wonder Woman, a “large-breasted, white woman” who wears an “American flag motif.” The fictional DC comics character is being hailed as an “Ambassador for the Empowerment of Women and Girls.” 

Talking to Lynda Carter, the ‘70s era Wonder Woman, guest co-host Margaret Brennan insisted the character was “drawing some scrutiny because of the way you’re dressed.” Gayle King catalogued the list of complaints from outraged, dissident UN staffers: “Listen on to what they are saying though, Lynda. ‘A large breasted, white woman of impossible proportioned, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit with an American flag motif and knee-high boots is not an appropriate spokeswoman for the gender equality at the United Nations.’” 

King demanded, “And you say what?” 

Carter shot back: “It has nothing to do with anything…. Wonder Woman is an idea. This is not the American flag. This is not —  it’s about fighting for freedom.” 

She continued, “Give me a break! I think they are just being silly…. Get over yourself already!” 

A partial transcript of the October 21 segment, which aired at 8:32AM ET, follows: 



MARGARET BRENNAN: Carter leaped, lassoed and saved lives as the all-American hero heroine. That came decades after Wonder Woman’s first comic book cover in 1941. 

GAYLE KING: This year, the super hero turns 75! She earns one more distinction. Wonder Woman has been named a United Nations honorary ambassador for the empowerment of women and girls. Lynda Carter is here, hours before the official ceremony at the UN headquarters. 


BRENNAN: The UN didn’t pick a female Secretary General. 


BRENNAN: There’s a petition because you’re getting this recognition and drawing some scrutiny because of the way you’re dressed. 

[Lynda Carter rolls her eyes.] 

KING: No, but listen on to what they are saying though, Lynda. A large breasted white woman of impossible proportioned, scantily clad in a shimmery, thigh-baring body suit with an American flag motif and knee-high boots is not an appropriate spokeswoman for the gender equality at the United Nations. And to that, you say what? 

LYNDA CARTER: Can I say it? Probably not. I think it’s ridiculous. 

KING: You can say that. 

CARTER: I can say it’s bull. 

KING: Why? Why? Why do you feel that way? 

CARTER: Because they are nit-picking on something that has nothing to do with anything. It is a super hero, number one! And that gender, it has nothing to do with anything. They want to pick on, you know — Wonder Woman is an idea. This is not the American flag. This is not —  it’s about fighting for freedom, and the fact that she happens to wear —  it’s not scantily clad, big breasted white woman. 

KING: And she wears clothes. She also wears clothes. 

CARTER: Yeah. 

KING: Clark Kent had on a suit. 

CARTER: Well, yeah. Plus he had a sock in his suit! 

KING: Okay. 

BRENNAN: It’s okay to look female, Lynda Carter. 

CARTER: It’s okay to look female. You know, give me a break! I think they are just being silly. 

KING: Nit-picking, you’re thinking. 

CARTER: Nit-picky and get over yourself already! 

KING: Thank you, Lynda Carter.

What’s even more ironic is that Lynda Carter is playing a Female President on SuperGirl for the express purpose of being a Hillary Stand-in…


17 Threat to Liberty

The Wall Street Journal editorial board tore into Hillary Clinton’s debate performance regarding the Supreme Court, saying that she represents a view that threatens American liberty, while giving Republican nominee, Donald Trump, props for having the superior grasp of our constitution.

For starters, The Journal ripped into Clinton’s notion that the Supreme Court should represent us, especially in its composition. That’s wrong. That’s what the legislative branch is for. Second, they aptly noted how Clinton supports abortion on demand and without exception, which is an extreme position. Support for third-trimester (aka late-term abortion) abortions is incredibly low—and there already is an exception for the life of the mother in the 2007 Gonzalez v. Carhart decision, which upheld the federal ban on partial birth abortion. On guns, Clinton pretty much said that she would appoint judges who would overturn the landmark Heller decision, but not before giving us all a chuckle by saying she supports the Second Amendment. In all, Clinton’s Supreme Court would be everything we on the Right have feared, a hard left, activist court that will seek to undermine individual rights to gun ownership and create a more solid legal basis for killing babies right up until birth. That’s one, hot American mess:

“The Supreme Court should represent all of us. That’s how I see the Court,” she said. “And the kind of people that I would be looking to nominate to the court would be in the great tradition of standing up to the powerful, standing up on our behalf of our rights as Americans.”Where to begin with that one? The Supreme Court doesn’t—or shouldn’t—“represent” anyone. In the U.S. system that’s the job of the elected branches. The courts are appointed, not elected, so they can be nonpartisan adjudicators of competing legal claims.

Mrs. Clinton is suggesting that the Court should be a super-legislature that vindicates the will of what she calls “the American people,” which apparently excludes “the powerful.” But last we checked, the Constitution protects everyone, even the powerful. The law is supposed to protect individual rights, not an abstraction called “the people.”

The Democrat went downhill from there, promising to appoint judges who would essentially rewrite the First and Second Amendments. Asked about the 2008 Heller decision that upheld an individual right to bear arms, Mrs. Clinton claimed to support “reasonable regulation.” She said she criticized Heller because it overturned a District of Columbia law intended merely “to protect toddlers from guns and so they wanted people with guns to safely store them.”

Toddlers had nothing to do with it.


If Mrs. Clinton supports such gun restrictions, then she thinks an individual’s right to bear arms is meaningless. If the Justices she appoints agree with her, then they can gradually turn Heller into a shell of a right, restriction by restriction, even without overturning the precedent.

Then there’s the First Amendment, which Mrs. Clinton wants to rewrite by appointing Justices she said would “stand up and say no to Citizens United, a decision that has undermined the election system in our country because of the way it permits dark, unaccountable money to come into our electoral system.”

Citizens United is the 2010 Supreme Court decision that found that unions and corporations can spend money on political speech—in that specific case for a movie that was critical of Mrs. Clinton. The Democrat seems to take the different view that while atomized individuals might have the right to criticize politicians, heaven forbid if they want to band together to do it as a political interest group.

As for “dark” money, she certainly knows that territory. Does money get any darker than undisclosed Clinton Foundation donations from foreign business magnates tied to uranium concessions in Kazakhstan?

It’s no surprise that this is Clinton’s vision of America, especially on gun rights. She’s said publicly that she wants to look into Australian-style gun control, which includes gun bans and confiscation. Democrats and the anti-gun Left try to blind the public with the notion that they are for common sense gun control proposals, all of which are already established law. For abortion, it’s also no surprise that this party wants is adopting the abortion on demand position. After years of trying to convince the public that killing babies is totally okay—the Left has utterly failed. So, in a temper tantrum, they back this position, while saying that all opposition is due to the sexist, misogynistic system of patriarchy. Oh, and because the GOP hates women, or something. Are they aware that almost 30 percent of its members describe themselves as pro-life and are gun owners? For those people, the GOP is always open.

Trump isn’t the perfect candidate. In fact, like Clinton, he’s incredibly flawed and unpopular, but he won the primary, he’s the Republican nominee, and he’s not Hillary Clinton. If anything, the latter part should be enough to convince the Never Trump wing of standing idly by and allowing Clinton to easily take the White House. I’m sure many of you know that I’m not a Trump fan, but you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that he’s better than Clinton and a Trump White House working with a Republican Congress is better that Clinton’s anti-gun, pro-abortion progressive cesspool that she wants to force all of us to take a dip in. Yes, I will call out Trump for when he goes off the hinges or says something stupid, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to back away and vote for Clinton or stay on the sidelines and abstain. You can vote for someone, while finding their brand of politics and personality to be incredibly unappealing. That point is magnified when the opposing candidate is Hillary Rodham Clinton. If you don’t want a Supreme Court that undercuts the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, and promotes a legal framework for abortion on demand, the choice for president is explicitly clear.

Political Cartoons by Steve Breen


Guy <Benson> wrote about the coming damage Obamacare will inflict upon us in 2017. In short, it’s a total disaster, with premiums set to spike to outrageous levels, 75 percent in Arizona alone. Another punch to the gut regarding this miserable failure of a health care law; there are fewer Americans with private insurance now than there were in 2007 (via  Weekly Standard):

That’s according to the federal government’s own figures. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (see table 1.2b), 66.8 percent of those living in the United States had private health insurance in 2007. Now, as of 2015 (the most recent year for which figures are available), only 65.6 percent of those living in the United States have private health insurance.It turns out that median incomes aren’t the only thing that have dropped since 2007.

There are currently about 320 million people living in America. If the percentage who have private health insurance were as high now as it was in 2007, 3.8 million more people would now have private health insurance.

This isn’t the only thing that off. The projections from the Congressional Budget Office regarding where enrollment should be with Obamacare missed its target…by 24 million. Hope and change, folks. (Matt Vespa)

So it’s obvious that we need to elect the person most qualified to carry on this wonderful legacy…


19 Days- The Death of Reason

This is the level of ignorant narcissism we are up against.

A few days ago Bernie Sanders was stumping for the woman who rigged the Primary in her favor at Northern Arizona University.

One cherub of brainless idiocy said effectively:

That she was voting for Hillary because she was the closest to Bernie in the race. If Bernie was in the race she wouldn’t even think twice about voting for Hillary. She really doesn’t like Hillary.

So she is going to vote for the person who rigged the Primary Election against her candidate because he’s not running. And he’s not running because the Primary was rigged by the candidate she’s voting for.

An alternative to a Democrat isn’t even a concept in her mind apparently.

And all that stuff Bernie said about Hillary during that rigged Primary, gone like dust in a sandstorm, blown away on the wind whistling through her brainless head.

That is the level of idiocracy we have now.

Stupidity has truly taken over the Earth.
