How to Lose

by baldilocks If I didn’t know better, I’d say that a goodly portion of the 2020 Democratic Party candidates for president are working for Donald Trump. At the Democratic-primary debate in Houston [on Thursday], Beto O’Rourke formally killed off one of the gun-control movement’s favorite taunts: The famous “Nobody is coming for your guns, wingnut.” Asked … Continue reading How to Lose

Trump Playing the Old Reagan Game with China

Back in the days when I was a Democrat I was suspicious of Ronald Reagan.  There were still anti-abortion Democrats pro-defense democrats who understood that Communism was as bad as Nazism or worse and that opposing it was a moral duty so I wasn't quite alone but when the whole concept of Star Wars came … Continue reading Trump Playing the Old Reagan Game with China

Everyone knew that whoever let the sadness overtake him would sink into the swamp. -The Neverending Story It’s now been a year since President Trump’s election and I, for one, think that’s plenty of time for all the tantrums to have played themselves out. I can understand the disappointment of the losing side in the … Continue reading The Neverending Tantrum

Personal Honor

by baldilocks One of my friends surmises that President Trump calls Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) Pocahontas because he doesn’t get the Fauxcahontas joke that spread all over the conservative Internet after it was revealed that Warren had claimed to be part Indian and used it to get a position at Harvard. (It was later discovered … Continue reading Personal Honor

No Republican should stall tax cuts to save the individual mandate

Today, Mick Mulvaney said something shocking. He declared if the Senate tax cut bill was getting stalled over repealing the individual mandate, then the White House would be okay with killing off that portion. Huh? What Republican would oppose the tax cuts specifically because they had the individual mandate repeal attached to them? Can anyone … Continue reading No Republican should stall tax cuts to save the individual mandate

Muslim American Will Benefit the Most From Donald Trump’s “Extreme Vetting”

Another day, another terror attack by a Muslim screaming Allahu Akhbar and another batch of media stories about that fabled Muslim Backlash that like global warming putting US coastal cities underwater never seems to happen. Ahmad's question was answered. My biggest concern is that he's readily identified as a Muslim and then that is extrapolated … Continue reading Muslim American Will Benefit the Most From Donald Trump’s “Extreme Vetting”

The day Jake Tapper Elected Donald Trump

A lot of my friends on the right don't like Jake Tapper much these days Jon Nolte who I absolutely love dropped him last year over these two interviews: In full grandstanding, self-righteous mode (we've seen this Tapper come out against Republicans before), Tapper hammers Trump over this judge 23 times -- 23 freakin' times! Tapper refuses … Continue reading The day Jake Tapper Elected Donald Trump

Feeding the Brimstone

by baldilocks The church I regularly attend is multi-racial, but I didn’t choose it because of that. I chose it because of other churches and other pastors. I chose it because of situations like the following. From Lloyd Marcus: My brother Jerry is a deacon in his all-black church. Jerry called to tell me he … Continue reading Feeding the Brimstone

Congressman Steve Scalise at Values Voters: a Happy Warrior

The just-concluded Values Voter Summit in Washington D.C. was punctuated by standing ovations. Among them: a few for the President, who spoke decisively but without pugnacity; for Bannon and Gorka, the red-meat guys; for Alveda King, bringing the crowd to its feet to join her in song. And then there was the one for Steve … Continue reading Congressman Steve Scalise at Values Voters: a Happy Warrior
