The Baltic Sea…Europe’s South China Sea equivalent

BALTOPS 2018 participants As NATO celebrates its 70th anniversary, the media focus continues to be on whether President Trump will leave NATO. I don't view that as highly likely, but I do think he is going to continue his march towards rewarding countries that contribute to the alliance, while continuing negative rhetoric towards those that … Continue reading The Baltic Sea…Europe’s South China Sea equivalent

Non-Tweets under the Fedora for 12-16-18 Holy Spirit, Twitter, Government, Cleveland Browns and Demands

Pro-tip for experienced Christians, when you declare you are going to leave something for the Holy Spirit to decide said spirit is going to take you seriously and make that decision based on his desires not yours.  Which is why I didn't get to sleep in on my only day off this week For years … Continue reading Non-Tweets under the Fedora for 12-16-18 Holy Spirit, Twitter, Government, Cleveland Browns and Demands

Slouching Toward Damascus

As the Syrian civil war slouches toward its brutal end, it’s time to take stock of one of the most significant diplomatic and military failures in my lifetime. More than 200,000 civilians have died, including more than 25,000 children, and many more have been critically injured. Six million refugees have created havoc in Europe and … Continue reading Slouching Toward Damascus

Meaningless Media Spreading Manufactured Outrage…Among Itself.

We are in the 4th day of a complete media talking heads meltdown over the Trump Summit with Putin. I had thought actually that it has produced one of the few errors of the Trump administration, not the original remarks mind you but the clarification. It was my thought that there was no percentage in … Continue reading Meaningless Media Spreading Manufactured Outrage…Among Itself.

The Obama cult

By John Ruberry Until the latest leftist outrage---the need to eliminate Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)--the gripe about President Donald J. Trump was that he is the leader of a cult. It all started when outgoing US Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) said that his party was in a "cult-like situation" over Trump. The left-wing media … Continue reading The Obama cult

Stormy Daniels weather in Chicago

By John Ruberry Stormy Daniels was in Chicago last week, taking her clothes off and dancing for 15 minutes. Yep, a quarter of an hour, that was, at least on Thursday, the duration of her show. Although I was off work on Thursday and the Admiral, an old vaudeville house that has been a strip … Continue reading Stormy Daniels weather in Chicago

The Expectations Game or Lack Thereof at the Trump/Kim Summit

Donald Trump is about to enter into completely unknown and unexpected waters this week. Unknown because we really haven't seen this kind of an initiative by a US president on the Korean Peninsula since, well ever. Unexpected because even if you were one of the few people who three years ago concluded that the figure … Continue reading The Expectations Game or Lack Thereof at the Trump/Kim Summit

Inside the Gates: the Enemy [UPDATED]

by baldilocks After previously denying it, James Clapper admitted that the FBI “might have been” spying on the Trump campaign. Real Clear Politics: Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told CNN's Don Lemon Thursday night that the president's claim that the Obama administration spied on his campaign is "hyperbole" but if it is true, … Continue reading Inside the Gates: the Enemy [UPDATED]

Cultivating the Roseanne vote

By John Ruberry Last week after two decades in rerun stasis the sitcom Roseanne returned to ABC with massive ratings, even higher than its final episode of its first run in 1997. Formerly a liberal, the show's star, Roseanne Barr, declared that she was a supporter of Donald Trump two years ago. While Trump isn't … Continue reading Cultivating the Roseanne vote

Trump: A View From Across The Pond

It’s not easy to find a hardcore Trump supporter in London and Paris, but there is a grudging acknowledgement that the president isn’t as bad as many Americans think. During a recent visit to the not-so-united United Kingdom and France, almost everywhere I went people noticed my accent and wanted to talk about Trump. I … Continue reading Trump: A View From Across The Pond

Democratic candidates for Illinois governor resort to scapegoating

By John Ruberry Illinois will have one of the most-closely watched gubernatorial contests this year. Republican incumbent Bruce Rauner has been a tremendous disappointment to me and just about every conservative voter I know. I enthusiastically backed the then-political newcomer in 2014, but this time around, as I explained here at Da Tech Guy, I'm … Continue reading Democratic candidates for Illinois governor resort to scapegoating

President Xi Jinping, [pronounced she] who will be elected to a second, five-year term, faces some … Continue reading A Chinese Leap Forward?

#FireMcMaster – Preferably Out of a Cannon and Over Open Water

This guy, H.R. McMaster, the National Security Adviser, is an islamocoddling anti-Trump leftist sympathizer, at the very least, who is a deep state enabler, backstabber, and a leaker. He is disloyal as well as possibly treasonous. He has got to go! McNasty apparently opposes everything President Donald Trump stands for in areas of national security … Continue reading #FireMcMaster – Preferably Out of a Cannon and Over Open Water

President Trump – First Six months of #MAGA

I am one of those people you hear about who LOVES President Trump. I have loved him since I was a little girl, when he was called a "young entrepreneur", and I had always hoped he would run for President. Every day that Donald J. Trump is my President is a dream come true. I … Continue reading President Trump – First Six months of #MAGA
