She Didn’t “Build” That

by baldilocks When Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) took credit for driving Amazon away from her district and out of her state, she was taking credit for the work of others. Surprise! To wit: … the "credit," such as it is, doesn't belong to her social media campaign or the protesters with makeshift signs marching around. … Continue reading She Didn’t “Build” That

Not Dead, Just Resting

by baldilocks Many are linking to Victor Davis Hanson's piece Autopsy of a Coup at American Greatness. Here's a taste: All through the 2016 campaign and during the first two years of the Trump presidency the media’s treatment, according to liberal adjudicators of press coverage, ran about 90 percent negative toward Trump—a landmark bias that … Continue reading Not Dead, Just Resting

Bravo Sierra and Paying Attention

by baldilocks Earlier today I said this: It was in reference to Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) expounding on her experiences with weed, Tupac, Snoop, and time travel, but I consider it a timeless aphorism -- especially when we're talking about ideologues pandering to a desired constituency. Unskilled pandering happens all the time with politicians from … Continue reading Bravo Sierra and Paying Attention

Antidote to Trump Anxiety

Doctor J is in by baldilocks Emily Zanotti: Politico Magazine reported this week that the [p]resident is causing all sorts of maladies in his political opponents, from sexual dysfunction to flat-out depression, and in some cases the president is so single-handedly responsible for patients' psychological instability that qualified therapists have made him into a diagnosis: Trump … Continue reading Antidote to Trump Anxiety

A Deeper Look at Northam

by baldilocks With the news of the last few days being that Governor Ralph Northam (D-VA) dressed up in either blackface or in Klan regalia in a 1984 college yearbook (or maybe he didn’t), it’s necessary to remember that Northam had been in the news earlier in the week for a reason that produced far … Continue reading A Deeper Look at Northam

More on Nathan Phillips

by baldilocks From the blogger formerly known as Neo Neocon: The role of [Nathan] Phillips himself was (and still is) felt by the right to be the following: that he purposely stirred up the initial face-to-face confrontation, that he lied about his military service, lied when he stated the boys had said “build the wall,” … Continue reading More on Nathan Phillips

While We Weren’t Looking

by baldilocks A transformation. Fundamental? When most people think of citizenship, they think of their nation’s constitution or the rights guaranteed to them in the law. They will think of their obligations to their country, like paying taxes, obeying the law and defending the nation. In the West, a citizen is pretty much as the … Continue reading While We Weren’t Looking

They Want to Make Him Pay

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

That Time When God Said: “Watch This!”

Hold my beer, Gabriel! by baldilocks Ten years already. Flight 1549 took off from LaGuardia a decade ago Tuesday, with [now-retired Captain Chesley 'Sully'] Sullenberger's co-pilot [Jeff] Skiles at the controls, three flight attendants and 150 passengers aboard. It was cold, only about 20 degrees Fahrenheit, but the skies were clear. 'What a view of … Continue reading That Time When God Said: “Watch This!”

Voyage to the Edge

by baldilocks Sailing the ocean blue. A group of people who believe the Earth is flat have announced their “biggest, boldest, best adventure yet”: a Flat Earth cruise scheduled for 2020. The cruise, organized by the Flat Earth International Conference, promises to be a lovely time. Flat earthers – who include the rapper B.o.B. [JAO: don’t ask because … Continue reading Voyage to the Edge

Why Big GOP Hates Donald Trump

by baldilocks People love to be lied to and smooth-talked. Conversely, they hate frank speakers who tell them the truth. This is part of the reason that there is still love and nostalgia for Former President Obama and a widespread visceral hatred of President Trump. I’m not immune, but I have recovered. Admittedly, having a … Continue reading Why Big GOP Hates Donald Trump

Silenced and Broke

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

My 2018 Posts That You Might Not Have Noticed

by baldilocks In order of earliest to most recent, these are some of my favorite posts from last year. They didn't necessarily get the most traffic, but I liked them -- mostly due to cracking myself up. Enjoy. Libyan Slave Markets and Jumping Into The Fire We all know that Arab Muslims have been buying and … Continue reading My 2018 Posts That You Might Not Have Noticed

It’s a Bot World We’re Living In

by baldilocks A few years back, I was trolling Chelsea Handler on Twitter and was semi-shocked when one of her fans -- some leftist (chick?) -- claimed that I was a white man using a black woman's photo for my profile. Leftist delusion aside, now I understand it. In late November, the Justice Department unsealed … Continue reading It’s a Bot World We’re Living In

Begotten

A Tale of Three Fathers by baldilocks Months back, I was talking with my American dad about Jesus the Christ. In reality, the conversation was an episode of a years-long series which had been on hiatus for a time, mostly due to the instability in my living arrangements in the last three years. I am happy to have it … Continue reading Begotten
