Sheriff Jason McCullough: You might as well come on, like it or not, we’re on the same side now

Support Your Local Sheriff 1969

Back when I was in college and we had pretty much one Judeo Christian Culture and the whacko liberalism that we see office holders display proudly was a fringe so small that only in the craziest colleges were they ever mentioned there was one pretty basic fact of life for a large national businessman, stay friendly with both political parties.

Yeah you might hold a fundraiser for your favorite or make an appearance but almost invariably a business would make sure to hedge their bets and make sure they had friends on both sides of the aisle.  Furthermore if it became clear that one side was going to win, business’ make it a point to make sure they were on good speaking turns.

This was one of the reasons why the Clinton Foundation was doing so well in racking in the dough before the election, everyone believed she was going to be the winner and the money poured in.  and it’s also why the money dried up the moment it was clear she was finished.

So when I read that Elton Musk was kicking in big to the GOP even though he had been giving money to Democratic Midterm Victory Fund  and to folks like Dianne Feinstein at Adam Schiff I didn’t consider it a big deal.  I simply presumed that while he remains a fan of the left, he sees the writing on the wall for the midterms and decided to make sure he had some insurance to keep the subsidies that make all those electric cars possible.

Apparently the base of the Democrats doesn’t see it the same way. 

and the twitter mobs are full of hastags denouncing Tesla , Musk and calling for boycotts

Mr. Musk as taken to twitter to deny that he is a “top donor” (as opposed to a non top donor apparently)

but Alas for Mr. Musk  because politics is a religion for the left. It doesn’t matter if he is a “top donor” or just a regular donor. Being a donor to the GOP or any unapproved cause is as the inventor of firefox discovered like being a little bit pregnant

It’s doesn’t matter if you fix the pipes of everyone in Flint, as far as they are concerned you’re now an apostate and the only religion harder on religious apostates than liberals are Islamists.

Now it’s likely Mr. Musk is going to be all right because while a lot of the base will be outraged the pols will still want his $ over the long haul and will be loath to throw that piggy bank away.  However give the state of the left today it’s inevitable  that same base which forced Chuck Schumer into a losing filibuster and shutdown demands that Democrats candidates renounce Musk and his money or even demand those who have taken his now tainted case give it back.

If I was a Democrat operative even as I decried Mr. Musk to appease the base that I can’t win without, I’d be quietly reaching out to him, making it clear that they value his past support, his business model and his various project and any such statements to the contrary are strictly for show and should not be taken as their actual position (and if I was a republican operative I’d do all I can to expose democrats who are doing this).

I think it would be an excellent thing for conservative bloggers around the country to start asking Democrat candidates if they will vow to renounce Mr. Muck’s money based on the bases anger and ask folks like Corey Booker if they will give the money back. The sound bites such questions produce will be a lot of fun for use in the current election cycle and could cement Mr. Musk as a donor to conservatives for decades to come because like Jake in support your local Sheriff, like it or not you’re on our side now.

Welcome to Liberal, Kansas

By John Ruberry

“You’re not of the body,” is what Dr. McCoy shouted at his Enterprise officers after being brainwashed in the ways of Landru in the Star Trek episode, The Return of the Archons

The most intolerant people I know are liberals, who I often refer to as leftists.

First a story:. Back in 2007 I visited Liberal, a small city in southwestern Kansas. The Sunflower State is one of the most least liberal states in America, so how did Liberal get its name? According to a Liberal visitors guidebook, a generous 19th century homesteader bucked the trend to charge passersby for water for their livestock. When learning that, it’s said that the travelers would reply, “That’s mighty liberal of you.”

Two nights ago Sarah Huckabee Sanders, President Trump’s press secretary, sat down with members of her family to have dinner at the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia.

Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of the Red Hen pulled her aside–then asked Sanders to leave because she worked for the president.

In a 21st century way, that was mighty liberal of Wilkinson.

I have another story for you: In the 1980s, Republican governor Jim Thompson was having dinner at a restaurant in the Southwest Side Chicago district of Michael Madigan, a Democrat, who was then, as he is now, the speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives. The restaurateur called Madigan on the telephone and asked, “What do I do?” Madigan replied, “Give him first class treatment.”

That was mighty liberal of Madigan, in the 20th century way.

But in the present day liberals, make that leftists, not only can’t tolerate dissent, they can’t tolerate the very concept of contrary ideas. It devolves into blind delusional hatred, which was first identified by the late Charles Krauthammer in 2003 when he identified Bush Derangement Syndrome as “the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency — nay — the very existence of George W. Bush.”

Bush Derangement Syndrome was a mild case of the sniffles among the libs compared to the raging fever that is Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Leftists gather their news from their preferred sources, such as the CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Huffington Post. They congregate in private Facebook groups where no conservatives are allowed. “Aha,” a liberal will scream out while reading my entry, “But don’t you wingnuts do the same thing, getting your news from Fox, the Wall Street Journal, and Breitbart? Don’t you have your own Facebook groups?”

Guilty as charged. But there’s a big difference with our side. The mainstream media leans to the left. Proof? Last week I was channel surfing and both ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel and NBC’s Jimmy Fallon, on their late night comedy shows, were simultaneously attacking Trump’s policies. Of course neither of them were funny.

When I was accompanying my mother, who has since passed away, for her chemotherapy treatments, we’d be subjected to the propaganda from the leftists on The View in the waiting room.

Sports reporting has become politicized. ESPN’s SportCenter dishes out liberalism, as do newspaper sports columnists Nancy Armour of USA Today and the Chicago Tribune’s David Haugh.

Those of us on the right can’t bury our heads in the sand even if we wanted to.

Curt Schilling, a conservative, was immediately fired from ESPN for sharing a Facebook post that was viewed as anti-transgender.

A 2016 poll discovered that liberal and Democrats are three-times more likely to unfriend someone on Facebook over politics as opposed to conservatives. I’ve had good friends I’ve known for years, including a former girlfriend, unfriend me on Facebook because I support Donald Trump and they don’t. I’ve never unfriended anyone on FB over politics. I’ve only blocked abusive people on Twitter–never once over their political views.

Which is why I was not surprised when I heard Sarah Huckabee Sanders walked into the alternative leftist universe of the Red Hen in Virginia, she was told to scram.

Sanders is not of the body. She is not a denizen of the liberal echo chamber.

Finally, I’ll end with a quote. When the 1992 Los Angeles riots raged Rodney King pleaded, “Can’t we all just get along?”

Sanders should have been given first class treatment at the Red Hen, just as any other patron there deserves.

Despite our political differences, Americans still have plenty in common.

Wait! I’m not done. Of course parallels are being drawn between the Sanders booting and the devout Christian Coloradans who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. They view same-sex weddings as a sin. Personally, I believe the bakers should have taken the order with a love-the-sinner-but-hate-the-sin approach.

But our constitution offers religious protections, that are still not completely determined, even after the US Supreme Court ruled in Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. the Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

If you really want to see how far the left has gone take a look at the comments in the NYT article referenced by Twitchy yesterday but not the just comments the NYT Picks.  All the Emphasis is mine

The author is with us, really he is

As a liberal academic living in deep-red Indiana, I bear witness to the frustrations expressed by both sides. Hence my disappointment with the defensive comments here that miss the points that Alexander has raised. No, he is not saying that all liberals are arrogant; nor is he denying the intrinsic worth of liberal values (which I’m confident that he largely shares with us); and he’s certainly not denying that a great many Trump supporters are racist, stupid, ignorant and/or in the thrall of Fox “News” and other propagandists. But he’s right that there’s a huge bloc of voters – conservative libertarians, Hillary-haters, those alienated by our dysfunctional presidential system – who could be won over in ’20 if we showed them more respect.

See you don’t have to like them for real

Hey we’ve been nice to these conservative for too long

I am a true blue Democrat. And I have been turning the other cheek to conservatives and their name-calling and harmful policies since Reagan and his gang were in office.

I agree that it does no good to malign a group with broad brush strokes. But all that turning the other cheek and making nice just ended up here – with a crazy crook and his miscreants(R) in all the power positions of government.

Turning the other cheek doesn’t work when the other side is playing hardball. And with unlimited guns, no less.

Failing to call out the ugliness is a mistake. If you are going down, go down swinging.

I am not encouraging us Dems to be ugly but at least we need to take a stand and speak the truth. And racism is real and widespread in the republican party of 1980 to present.

There, I said it.

Nothing says “racist” like beating Democrats and in the 80’s is when it started happening.

And why SHOULD I be nice to these bastards anyways?

Tell me, as a gay Hispanic male of color why should I be respectful of homophobic, fascist, racist, classist views that this president embodies and promotes? If you vote for a person that represents those ideas you are okay with those ideas. Or at least they don’t bother you so much because they don’t affect you. We do not need to be polite to Trump supporters or even Trump voters. In fact, I think we should be like Michelle Wolf. If they are embarrassed it’s because deep inside they know that their ideals are wrong. If they vote out of spite it means that they hate people like me, that they hate women, and anyone who is not a white straight male. Or at the very least, they do not care about what happens to anyone who is not part of the majority in power. So no, I will not be “nice”. I for one am super tired of conservatives telling me how to feel about my oppression.

Isn’t it funny how so many other hispanics are trying so hard to get into or stay in this supposedly racist, facist, classist, homophobic country that Trump runs?

And you prove you’re evil by just supporting Trump 

Straw men. “Some liberals” this, and “some liberals” that. Some conservatives are active, aggressive members of neo-Nazi organizations. Are they driving away some liberals who might otherwise vote for Trump? The problem is that Mr. Alexander almost suggests that really, there are two equally valid polarities in U.S. politics and those who love Mr. Trump should be regarded as equally respectable with those who support the Democrats. But they are not equal: one side likes a leader who often sounds like a childish, immature, bullying blow-hard. The other side does not. If Trump is your leader, and you admire him and his party, you are not reasonably entitled to respect for your political views. This is not like the difference between those who are pro-free trade and those who are against. It’s the difference between the politics of hate and exclusion and the politics of mutual respect and inclusion.

Why not just say “As a blasphemer you should be stoned to death.” and be done with it

The fun part, the piece they were commenting, in my opinion, didn’t run in the Times because the Times like Trump or Trump voters, I suspect it ran in the times because they understand that unless Democrats change they will lose in 2018, 2020 and beyond.

I think Iowahawk has them pegged

Liberalism is their religion not their political belief and they do not tolerate heretics

I can’t wait for election day.

Roger Cobb: Terry? I guess it wasn’t meant to be between us. I’ll always regret that. But I want you to know that, wherever it is you’re going, I hope you’ll be very happy.
Terry Hoskins:: I will. I’ve got a wonderful house, beautiful horses and all the money in the world why shouldn’t I be happy?
Roger Cobb: What?
Terry Hoskins:: If you think I’m really going through with this you’re not just stupid, you’re crazy.
Edwina Cutwatter {in Roger’s Body} What?
Roger Cobb: I’ll handle this. What?
Terry Hoskins::From the beginning I thought if mad Edwina wants to give her money away, she may as well give it to me. I never thought that “Flying Nun” could do it.

All of Me 1984

One thing about the Trump Tax story that’s actually more interesting than the left going from:

 Trump is keeping his tax returns from the Public because it will hurt him

to

Trump tricked us into releasing his tax return to the public because it will help him

Is  this question being asked by Allahpundit:’

Maddow’s fans idolize her as a smart liberal with a supposedly foolproof bullsh*t detector — yet here she was last night not only bullsh*tting them at length about the news value of the returns but quite possibly doing so as an unwitting pawn in a limited hangout by the Trump White House. She got suckered by someone, maybe the Republican president himself, which is something that should never, ever happen to MSNBC’s liberal eggheads. It’s sufficiently bad for her brand that it’s hard to imagine how she could have rationalized one night of mega-ratings as being worth the letdown and loss of faith in her judgment that she’d suffer among her regular fans. So I ask again: Why the ridiculous hype? I can’t figure it out.

which is even more cogent given this excellent point

by the time she finally got into the details of the 1040, it was Geraldo and the Al Capone vault all over again. Which brings us back to the question: Why? Why make viewers wait with bated breath for something you know can only disappoint them?

John Ziegler’s explanation is that hype is usually inversely proportional to actual news value. That is, it’s because Maddow knew she had nothing that she had to draw out the suspense. If there was anything truly juicy in the return, he reasons, don’t you think it would have been revealed by NBC’s hard news division, most likely Lester Holt’s program, instead of by Maddow during the 9 p.m. hour of liberal power?

So the questions on the floor are:

Why did Maddow push this?

Why are MSNBC and the rest of the press are still pushing it‘?

The Answer is as Stacy McCain alludes to is:  this is what the liberal rubes want.

After finally “reporting” the numbers, Maddow then filled the extra time with a lot of blabber — wild speculation about what sinister secrets might be hidden behind those opaque numbers. She suggested there could be debts owed to shady foreign entities (Russians, nudge, nudge, wink, wink) who could thereby influence Trump’s policies. While it is of course possible that such things could be true, speculation is not news, or else I could win a Pulitzer Prize for my seven-part series speculating that Rachel Maddow could be having a secret affair with Mika Brzezinski. Because, hey, why not?

The circular logic of Maddow’s “investigative journalism”:

  1. Donald Trump is a Republican;
  2. Republicans are evil;
    therefore
  3. Somewhere, there must be evidence of how evil Trump is.

Really, that’s all she’s got — a belief in Trump’s evil, which permits her (and every other liberal journalist) to constantly locate mountainous “scandals” where anyone with common sense sees only a molehill. Ever since Hillary lost the election, the media have been dogpiling every possible variation on the Russians-hacked-the-election conspiracy theory, because that’s what their core audience of disappointed Democrat voters want to believe. [emphasis mine]

Remember we’ve seen this before, when the Target was Michelle Bachmann

For many months we’re heard about Bachmann “scandals” that have been ready to break .

With a left dying to beat her and a media scoffing at and hating her it would be only a matter of time before the chickens would come home to roost.

Bull.

You have an IRS that was leaking tax information to the left, you have an AG going after Fox news reporters and their families, you had a press united in their disdain for the congresswoman and you think if there was some there there we would not have seen some actual meat out there?

And of course there was Fitzmas, when the entire left was convinced that prosecutor was just a step away from indicting Karl Rove, who would lead to Dick Cheney and maybe even George W. Bush.  Do you remember the anticipation, the jokes on late night and all that?  Stacy McCain did

For the love of God, have we forgotten “Fitzmas,” the 2005 rumor that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald’s federal grand jury was about to indict Rove or Cheney or both? Who could ever forget the ridiculous farce of “investigative journalist” Scott Leopold “reporting” in May 2006 that Rove had been indicted?

And most importantly how it ended for them

05.10.25.BlueFitzmas-X

Stacy again

All of that ridiculous “PlameGate” nonsense was taken very seriously by the mainstream media, as though it were a real scandal that might implicate the president in High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and yet it was transparently absurd from start to finish.

That sounds really familiar doesn’t it, Trump Russia, Trump and Taxes, Trump and Bannon, etc etc etc the MSM keeps pushing this stuff, not because they believe it but because they know their customer base on the left does and will keep believing, and even if They’re burned

They just keep grabbing the next one.

You see liberalism is a religion and Their primary belief is that Conservatives/Republicans are the focus of evil in the world and we’re only one leak or investigation away from them being exposed forever.

That’s why this 2nd tweet from Ali is evergreen

Just substitute Bush, or Cheney, or Rove, or Palin, or Bachmann, and that tweet would be true in the past. We can put Conway or Bannon instead or (or along with) Trump and that sentence still works. And someday and someday in the future those names will be replaced by Republicans we’ve never heard of.

But the Democrats will still be the same and the MSM and the professional left will be there to play them, just as Ironically Buzzfeed reports that even Brett Kimberlin is back to play the rubes. Yeah Kimberlin is a bomber, a con man, a violent mendacious serial litigator but he’s not so stupid as not to recognize an easy mark when he sees them.

This is religion for the left and they’ll keep believing no matter what reality says to the contrary and if it doesn’t pan out they’ll wipe away their memory of their last failure just like Wikipedia wiped away Fitzmas removing its entry & redirecting it down the memory hole and grasp the next “scandal”.

I’ll give the last word to Peter Cook and Rowan Atkinson who demonstrate here

that Monty Python isn’t the only British comedy that the left has mistakenly decided was actually a guide to life.

If you are not in the position to kick in dollars we will always happily accept your prayers.

Cardinal Borusa: As I believe I told you long ago, Doctor, you will never amount to anything in the galaxy while you retain your propensity for vulgar facetiousness.

Doctor Who: The Deadly Assassin 1976

As you, dear reader might have noticed I have an odd and occasionally twisted sense of humor that has its roots in a combination of the Three Stooges, Monty Python, augmented with a bit of the Marx brothers, 60’s TV military humor (F Troop & McHale’s Navy and Hogan’s Heroes) and assorted British Humor (Black Adder, Yes Minister, Red Dwarf) for good measure.  This sense is occasionally wildly inappropriate & even bordering on a violation of the 2nd Commandment requiring confession although I insist that God has a sense of humor evidenced by his creation of man).

What you may not know is that it occasionally takes a large amount of effort to resist deploying that humor either verbally or physical when such things occur to me on the spur of the moment.  One such moment took place at the during the CIS event at the National Press Club.

During a rather excellent presentation I found the call of nature stronger than the pull of Mark’s presentation and had to excuse myself hurriedly to the rest room, arriving there I found the men’s room was being cleaned and at the time I did not know the location of the alternative.

That’s when it hit me.

I was in Washington DC, a bastion of ultra liberalism, furthermore I was in the national press club and organization whose members have adopted liberal identity politics even to the point of the absurdity that if one does not accept the far left’s meme on the Transgender bathroom business you were a bigot, practically an unperson.

What would happen if instead of asking one of the very friendly staff of the press club I simply used the ladies room?

How would the press club react?  How COULD they react?  Surely the fact that I wearing a fedora , dressed in a suit and tie and clearly had not shaved (I forgot to pack razors) had no bearing on my sexual identity?  In fact those members of the press club unfamiliar with Doctor Who in general and the Fourth Doctor in particular might have decided my long multi colored scarf  (known as a  “doctor who” scarf) was a sign of membership or at least affinity in the LGBT community.

After all there are many events at the press club, many highly populated by liberals, what would a liberal woman say seeing me in the ladies room?
Would she dare question me, confront me, or even give me an odd look? Would she dare say a word to the people in charge?  Or would the fear of being accused of a proper lack of diversity drive her to silence?  She might find herself ashamed at even thinking such a thing and instead brag to her friends how accepting it was for her to be “comfortable” with a 270 man in the ladies room with her. Accommodating me was the ultimate in virtue signaling and if she was a proper liberal, particularly a liberal reporter tell the story with pride to everyone she knew.

On the other hand what if she DID report me?

Would the staff dare confront me? What would they say if I refused to give an explanation?  What would they do if they asked me my sexual orientation and I told them it was bluntly that not only was it none of their bus but how DARE they even question me upon it?  How would such a story play in the very papers where the member of that press club excoriate those who insist that there is in fact such a thing as men and women and act accordingly? Would they risk being seen as on the wrong side of an issue that the Democrat party is playing for all it is worth?

The comic potential for this decision was seemingly limitless!

Alas it was not to be, my comedic nature was overcome by my sense of prosperity, particularly as an invited guest and instead I asked someone where the other men’s room was and went there.

But I can’t help but think that it would be an interesting experiment, not only at the press club but at any liberal institution to see what might happen in that situation.

It would be fun to find out wouldn’t it, but it will take someone less invested in proprietary to do so.


While CIS kindly sponsored my attendance at their event there are still quite a few incidental expenses involved, not the least of which was the loss of two days pay from my regular job (my thanks to them BTW for permitting me the time off to accept CIS’ invitation)

When I saw this tweet from the Atlantic:

I was shocked. Not by the fact that neither the Atlantic nor any other liberal publication would ever question abortion based on ending the life of a male, but that they had violated one of the new commandments of the modern left.

The very fact Atlantic has dared to suggest that there is such a thing as “male” and “female” and that such a thing exists in the womb before said child can even be exposed to social construct is a case of liberal heresy.

I await the massive condemnation of the Atlantic by all comers and their boycott by states and celebrities all over.

Break out the stoning scene:

Now you might think that stoning is a tad rough here but as the left has decreed that Monty Python is not comedy but a blueprint for life, I guess we have to do it.

A few days ago Wired gave breathless space to a piece about a couple of Bronx Rappers objecting to Ted Cruz campaigning in their area.

While there was a lot in the piece that was laughable there was one line that jumped out at me that is worth your attention: (emphasis mine)

“Ted Cruz has no business being in the Bronx. This is an immigrant community,” Rodrigo yelled as police escorted him out. “We deal with climate change every single day, and he wants to say it doesn’t exist. We’re one of the poorest congressional districts in the country, and to receive this right wing bigot is an insult to the whole community.”

Seriously nobody at wired thought the “We deal with climate change every day” was a bit suspect?

Am I to understand that the sea level has been rising in the Bronx to the left that the average person in the neighborhood is fearful? Have they stopped renting basement apartments because of the rising seas. Are the Yankees getting ready to put their stadium on stilts?

That wired could include that line and not ask the obvious question: “Can you substantiate your claim concerning Bronx residents ‘dealing with climate change every day’ and if so how?” tells you that to the folks at Wired, “climate change/global warming” is a religion believed so strongly that any statement concerning it must be treated as fact.

And they say Catholicism requires faith.

C.S. Lewis The Screwtape Letters I

The latest planned parenthood video has come out and congress has now decided they want a closer look:

Today, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee issued a subpoena to the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) for all unedited video footage in their possession relating to the acquisition, preparation, and sale of fetal tissue. CMP is prevented from releasing footage due to a lawsuit filed by the National Abortion Federation to keep the videos out of the public domain.

This move has caused some panic among their fans but this one is my favorite


ppirony2

That image alone is enough to break irony meters.  A person who self identifies as “voice for the helpless” is upset about attacks on Planned Parenthood. Apparently the definition of “helpless” is so narrow that an unborn child doesn’t qualify. So let’s just look at the account page and exactly what is being talked about here..


ppirony1

I suspect that if planned parenthood did to whales and dolphins what they did to children this person would be absolutely horrified and outraged but because they are killing and dissecting humans they are worthy of not only existence but proactive defense.

However as this person is bothered enough by this situation to express her ire publicly, never let it be said that I didn’t offer a constructive solution to this person’s desire to end the attacks on Planned Parenthood.

If they did this the attacks on Planned parenthood would end almost instantly.

I know you can get the MSM for nothing, but that’s pretty much what they’re good for.

The Kim Davis story has not been kind to our friends on the left.

First she definitely but respectfully refuses to violate her Christian faith by putting granting marriage certificates to gay couples on the grounds that with her name on them it suggests her cooperation in sin.

Then when the court orders her to do so she refuses again and rather than fine her the judge rightly concludes that someone would just pay the fine so her jails her, making them fear she will be perceived as a martyr.

Just as they fear Davis goes to jail, and even worse doesn’t mimic leftist activists attacking police or authorities, she accepts the sentence maintaining her determination not to violate her conscience.

And as she’s in jail people protest for her and unlike the black lives matter protests or the occupy wall street protests there is no destruction or violence.

Then the judge, a member of the GOP, with his prospects for higher position permanently dashed as the PR gets worse and worse for the left and as two presidential candidates show up to lead protests, releases her on the grounds that her deputies (well most of them) agree to issue licences.

Davis when released not only speaks only of God and promises not to violate her conscience, but declines the offer of an armed group to protect her from further arrest.

Now the last thing the left could hope for was that she would fire her deputies, allowing them to attack her for demanding a conscience exception while not allowing her subordinates to do the same.

Alas poor leftists, that was not to be:

Before starting her workday, Davis appeared defiant, saying she will not issue any marriage licenses that go against her religious beliefs. But she left the door open for her deputies to continue giving out marriage licenses to same-sex couples as long as those documents do not have Davis’ name or title on them.

The marriage license that the couple received said “pursuant to federal court order” on it, and instead of listing Davis’ name and Rowan County, it says city of Morehead, the county seat.

David said Monday that any such licenses “will not issued or authorized by me.” Her work-around is not to sign them but not interfere with her deputies who do give them out.

“(U.S. District Judge David Bunning) indicated last week that he was willing to accept altered marriage licenses even though he was not certain of their validity,” Davis said. “I, too, have great doubts whether the license issued under these conditions are even valid.”

Actually according to Kentucky law they would not be valid but that would wait upon yet another lawsuit if anyone cared to launch one, but what matters is this.

Kim Davis retains both her elected position and her freedom of conscience. She has been able to force the very compromise that the left was unwilling to consider less than two weeks ago and the precedent is now set for Christians to refuse to participate in mortal sin that risks their soul without costing them any elected office they hold.

That’s the worst possible result for the left unless she is re-elected in 2016, then That will be the worst possible result for the left.
