by baldilocks President Trump made an offer which the Democrats rejected before the speech was even given. Democrats were hopeful that @realDonaldTrump was finally willing to re-open government & proceed with a much-needed discussion to protect the border. Unfortunately, reports make clear that his proposal is a compilation of previously rejected initiatives. https://t.co/MFwebWSevG pic.twitter.com/yMTm4iP27h— Nancy … Continue reading They Want to Make Him Pay
by baldilocks Some mock as a conspiracy theory the notion of a financial elite gathering to impose its will on the rabble. Meanwhile, theory has become fact. It is the most totalitarian form of blacklisting: not just to be prevented from speaking on a university campus, or to be kicked off social media, but to be … Continue reading Silenced and Broke
Martyrdom of Saint Stephen by Giovanni Andrea De Ferrari (1598-1669) "I expect to die in bed, my successor will die in prison and his successor will die a martyr in the public square. His successor will pick up the shards of a ruined society and slowly help rebuild civilization, as the church has done so … Continue reading The 2nd Day of Christmas and the Reminder of St. Stephen’s Martyrdom
By John Ruberry As I've written many times, Chicago is a city in decline. It is the only major American city losing population. Its pension debt, a reward--or should I say payoff?--to public-section unions in exchange for their support for Democratic politicians is an unsustainable millstone. This morning on a local television show, Flannery Fired … Continue reading Chicago leftists off Target in their store closing protests
Yeah, I'm from California. So what? by baldilocks Call me paranoid, but I think things like this are intentional. MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell on Monday claimed Florida's Broward County election supervisor Brenda Snipes is a Republican, despite the fact she is a Democrat. "We should also point out that Brenda Snipes in Broward County is … Continue reading Florida Woman
by baldilocks Propaganda does not deceive people; it merely helps them to deceive themselves. -- Eric Hoffer From Canada Free Press: To see that the 5 to 7 thousand ‘migrants’ aren’t coming to America for a better life only requires doing the math of the caravan, including its logistics and supplies. It’s a long 1,845 … Continue reading Who Started This Caravan?
By John Ruberry Here's a reminder that we've moved beyond spirited debate within our political culture into rudeness and thuggery. Take a look at the selection of stories about that descent towards anarchy. The most recent abomination occurred just two days ago as the Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell (R-KY), has harassed at a Louisville … Continue reading A collection of stories of leftist attacks on prominent Republicans
by baldilocks Every now and then, the Left tells you what its ultimate goal is. I've said for some time that Leftism's success requires the earth's rapid depopulation and that nearly all the Left's advocacy is geared toward that end: radical feminism -- which tends to alienate men and women from each other; homosexual and … Continue reading Gates Dreams of an African-less Africa
by baldilocks Chicks on the Right blog documents one of the most pathetic public displays within memory. As new Justice Brett Kavanaugh was being sworn into the Supreme Court, there were protesters outside, pounding on the Supreme Court doors. MSM media covered that they were pounding on the doors. But they didn’t actually cover how … Continue reading Hysterical Females Are Deadly
By John Ruberry Sometimes I watch television programs so you don't have to. Such was the case this morning as I endured ABC's This Week, which was slightly more tolerable than usual because the regular host, George Stephanopolous was off and Jonathan Karl was in charge. Of course the show was dominated by the circus … Continue reading Yes, money drove the anti-Kavanaugh mob
Which Came First? by baldilocks Basically, I've got nothing. I'm still feeling a little wistful and reflective after my road trip, so I'm simply going to share an excerpt from article I found interesting. (You may notice that we do that around here sometimes. The boss is lenient.) I'm looking for something to write about … Continue reading The Leftism or The Lunacy?
By John Ruberry "As I watch a great number of my fellow Americans and virtually all of the mainstream media descend further and further into irrational and immoral hysteria -- regularly calling the president of the United States and all of his supporters Nazis, white supremacists and the like; harassing Republicans where they eat, shop … Continue reading To my liberal friends: Yes, conservatives are decent people
By John Ruberry There are cries on both sides of the political aisle for a return to civility. When did it go away? It happened fifty years ago in Chicago during the Democratic National Convention. The left killed civility. The documentary Best of Enemies, available on Netflix, centers on ten debates broadcast on ABC during … Continue reading 1968: When the left killed civility
I am an avid golfer and very much a fan of the PGA Tour. Like everyone else, I was impressed by Tiger Woods and rooted for him in his early years on the tour. I did think it was a bit unfair when he had the gallery move a boulder for him at the 1999 … Continue reading Tiger Woods as a Symbol of the Left
by baldilocks I plan on coming back to California after my upcoming Odyssey, but it's easy to understand why this is happening. Richer Americans are moving to the coasts while poorer families are relocating to the Rust Belt as part of a national gentrification trend that is dividing the haves and have-nots geographically, according to … Continue reading Movement
