by baldilocks It’s difficult to share a positive story and resist the lure of garnering those outrage eyeballs with a negative one. That thought came to me as I was searching my usual sources for something provocative to write about. So much negativism and cynicism out there! I admit to, sometimes, being a purveyor. Just … Continue reading Limitless
by baldilocks He told them he was going to do this. President Donald Trump is officially withholding hundreds of millions in U.S. aid to three Central American countries as punishment for being much of the source of the current illegal immigration crisis. The White House informed Congress Monday that it will permanently divert $370 million … Continue reading Trump Takes Away and Gives
Rely not on the likelihood of the enemy's not coming, but on our own readiness to receive him. -- Sun Tzu by baldilocks A year ago, I said this: A lot of people – even some Christians -- discount the existence of satanic spiritual forces and ridicule the material-world advocates of these forces. The latter … Continue reading Open Service to the Principalities and Powers
by baldilocks From a recent conversation: Them: “I didn’t vote for President Obama either time. You know that. But I like him.” Me: “Really?” Them: “I can’t stand Trump! I know you’re on the Trump Team.” The Trump Team? We’re on teams now? Me: “I’m not on the ‘Trump Team.’ I’m on the side of … Continue reading The Irrelevance of Presidential Likability
by baldilocks Originally posted as a Twitter thread -- with a little expansion. From my good friend Stephen Green aka the Vodkapundit: In your typical Third-World megalopolis, basic city functions fall into disrepair, while once-eradicated diseases run rampant -- and the local bigwig boasts about saving the world. Los Angeles is quickly becoming a typical … Continue reading How Bad is LA?
Like a Two-Year Long Hangover by baldilocks Some people think that we should leave Former President Obama alone, since he's not president anymore. Problem is he and his minions won't leave us alone. First, there he is in Brazil -- the former POTUS -- lying about American gun laws. President Barack Obama said the United … Continue reading Aftereffects of the Obama Presidency
by baldilocks I’m old enough to remember when people who stuck their money in between their mattresses were called crazy and paranoid. Nine times out of ten, it was your grandma or grandpa who grew up during the Great Depression. These grandmas and grandpas -- retired American expats -- would have been better off had … Continue reading Superhighway Robbery in Mexico
by baldilocks Courtesy of the USAF, I spent most of the late 1980s in Berlin, Germany, making a good amount of memories and many friends who are still my friends as I type this. My sister even met my brother-in-law -- the latter was also in the USAF -- when she came to visit me … Continue reading Um, Germany?
As soon as you are disarmed by baldilocks No member of my family would dream of doing this to me. Well, they might dream about it, but they’d leave it there. Your family members might be different. From Matthew A. Sears at the Washington Post. Too often, we see supposed moderate Republicans, most of whom … Continue reading You Will Be Made Accountable For Your Voting Choices
by baldilocks Abe Greenwald: Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib brought the disease of anti-Semitism into the upper echelons of the Democratic Party when they were elected in November. The party could have fought the disease. It chose instead to nurture it. And that’s when the irreversible rot set in. The rot explains why Democrats, … Continue reading The True Leaders of the Democrat Party
War on Women Indeed by baldilocks Usually, I'm pretty good at figuring out the motivations of the postmodernists. But this time ... Why does the Organized Left want to destroy organized women's sports? Mark Rippetoe: [The International Olympic Committee and the International Association of Athletic Federations] are participating in a lie for political purposes, to … Continue reading The Left’s Latest Attack Against Women
by baldilocks Everyone must participate in the sacrifice! On Thursday, fanatic feminist Lauren Duca, who has hitherto had a rather hostile perspective toward men, suddenly issued a highly-unlikely plea, begging men to get more involved in fighting against the state of Georgia adopting the “heartbeat bill” which outlaws abortion once the baby shows it has … Continue reading Heartbeat
Meaning you by baldilocks The Social Media conservative purges are part of an overarching attack by the Organized Left against all non-leftists who express unapproved thought. You will be made to STFU -- or such is the goal. They want the money you already have. From 2018. It was the SPLC’s ongoing slander of the … Continue reading Big Left Herds Its Enemies
by baldilocks With two Somali-Americans – Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN-5) and Sports Illustrated “swimsuit” model Halima Aden -- being in the news of late, I think it’s important to dispense some information about a singular part of their backgrounds. Both spent their childhoods in Kenyan refugee camps. If you recall, the last time a person … Continue reading A Little Bit About Those Refugee Camps in Kenya
by baldilocks A tad morbid, but this is something to consider, and not just with Facebook. The number of dead Facebook users could outnumber the living by 2070, leaving a vast archive of such historical importance that archivists should be brought in to conserve the data, Oxford University has said. Currently the global social media site … Continue reading We’re All Making History
