The doughnut incident?

CA_TSBrowsing through today’s front pages brought me to this headline about a doughnut incident revealed in the leak of Democratic National Committee emails.

I had to learn more. Then, I read that this is referencing a bizarre episode where a celebrity I know nothing about, singer Ariana Grande, walks into a shop, licks a donut, and declares her hatred of America.

Of course, she’s a Democrat and wants to help in whatever ways she can. She wants to perform at the White House. But Obama’s handlers, quite wisely, politely decline her offer.

Now, so my research for this yawn of a story won’t be a complete waste, I am wondering about spelling and words. Most folks I know spell it donut, not doughnut as printed in the paper. So what should it be? Doughnut or donut? And why?

Tim Kaine gives us the Nazi ‘Sieg Heil!’ & Hillary laughs! (P.S. Bernie’s a Jew.)

PSST. Bernie Sanders is a Jew and an atheist.

They really are showing their colors, aren’t they? Hey, it’s fair game ain’t it? Going after Laura Ingraham with the same craziness. Hillary and Kaine obviously aren’t Nazis. Well, Tim isn’t. (By the way, Bernie Sanders is an atheist and a Jew.)

Strange how fences & walls seem to work at keeping people out

fence

A wall on the border won’t work, they say, but the Democrats erect a four-mile long, eight-feet high fence in Philly around the site of their convention, the Wells Fargo Center, aptly named given their big business friendly duo of Hillary & Kaine.

“It’s a total utter lie that police shootings are a major cause of black deaths.” — Ben Stein

The police are the heroes

Ben Stein writing at the American Spectator gives us some perspective and numbers on the police and the state of black culture in America.

“It’s a total utter lie that police shootings are a major cause of black deaths.”

Most are suicides, sadly.

“The huge majority of the rest are black-on-black gang and drug related shootings.”

That’s the major, underlying issue here: the lack of courage within the black community to confront what really plagues their neighborhoods. It’s the crime, the violence, the drugs.

“The Obama clique makes no effort at all to rein in these gangs. The gangs kill and no one proposes any laws about it at all.”

President Obama has been much a president. Sure, he’s won two elections. He’s held the office. But he has been everything but presidential. He has shown virtually no leadership on these and other critical issues.

“There is a giant super crisis among blacks: Violence. Drugs. The collapse of the family. Pitiful education. Low participation in the labor force. None of this is caused by the police.”

Federal, state and local leaders must begin to address the collapse of the black family and their communities.

Slip slidin’ away? Unfortunately for Hillary, America has elections, not coronations.

So Hillary Clinton has had enough of Bernie Sanders.

Well, I’ve had enough of Hillary Clinton. I had enough of her back in 1995.

A lot of us have had enough. Susan Sarandon, Daniel Craig, John C. Reilly, Neil Young, Tim Robbins, Danny DeVito, Ronda Rousey, Mia Farrow, Spike Lee, Dave Matthews, Seth McFarlane, Jeremy Piven, Sarah Silverman, George Wendt. These folks are all supporting Bernie.

Fortunately for Hillary I don’t have the power to banish people I don’t like. And thankfully for us, the electorate, we still have some say.

America is a republic. We don’t have dictators. We don’t have coronations. Our presidents aren’t selected by a cabal, at least I’d like to think that doesn’t happen.

Hillary, you still haven’t won the nomination, and I am hoping and praying that you never will.

Remember Lois Lane from the old Superman movies? She just wrote an exposé on Hillary’s money.

The actress who portrayed Lois Lane in the Christopher Reeve Superman films — Margot Kidder — actually did a bit of sleuthy reporting recently, à la Lois Lane, writing an exposé on the money behind Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

It’s very Lois Laneish. She shows an incredible network of collusion between donors, state party organizations and the DNC, the Democratic National Committee. It’s really quite something.

Lois Lane and Perry White, her editor at The Daily Planet, would be proud.

Yes, Bernie Is Better

Bernie is the better feminist . . . ” As am I. I’m a more solid and consistent feminist than Hillary Clinton, too.

I’m no socialist, but I don’t understand how the Democratic primary is even close. Bernie is by far the better candidate. I don’t agree with him on much. But he’s genuine and likable. And Hillary isn’t.

She’s scripted and rigid. She’s so uncreative, almost soulless. I think it has to do with being Bill’s significant other. She’s had to turn off her emotions and feelings, as much as humanly possible, just to survive. Otherwise, the betrayals and dishonesty and philandering would probably destroy her.

I’ve witnessed it. I know another woman who has been subjected to a similar situation, and it has made her cold and calculating. She, too, has rejected her feelings and emotions, as much as she can. And it ripples through people’s lives, like a wake that never subsides.

That ain’t the way it’s supposed to be.

A Free Button!

I LIKE OBAMACARE Button

Yesterday I glanced at an effort on Twitter from the Democratic Party highlighting the wonders of Obamacare. I like collecting stuff from political campaigns, so the offer of a free button got my attention.

I was ready to sign up, awaiting my nifty button. Of course, there is a catch. You need to make a donation first. So, like so much associated with President Obama and Democrats in general, it ain’t free, despite the word being used repeatedly.

Many responses to the message are quite illustrative.

A button?? That’s as pathetic as “Whip Inflation Now”, guys!

A reference to Gerry Ford. You don’t see that much these days.

They serious about Dems wearing #Obamacare buttons? What do they want? A punch in the mouth by someone who lost their insurance?

Somehow I doubt many people are excited by the offer. An automatic monthly donation to the Dems for a lousy button that no one will wear. No thanks.

I am wondering. Who came up with this slogan? It is rather pedestrian.

“I LIKE OBAMACARE”? Why not “I LOVE OBAMACARE!” or “I ♥ OBAMACARE!”?

Political Hacks as Bureaucrats

Police tape? Really?
Police tape? Really?

The National Park Service, obviously with intense political pressure from the White House, has made some highly questionable decisions recently, from blockading war memorials to demanding closure of private businesses, including George Washington’s Mount Vernon.

Ironically, the shutdown has given the thugs cover. They can operate with even more impunity than before.

“Because of the federal government shutdown, all national parks are closed and National Park Service webpages are not operating.”

Why do these sites need to be taken offline? Is it really necessary?

Another casualty is Twitter.

“Because of the federal gov’t shutdown this National Park Service Twitter feed is inactive.”

Someone has been targeting private businesses, demanding that they close, despite being allowed to operate during previous government shutdowns.

An iconic restaurant in Philly, housed in a building on the grounds of Independence National Historical Park, was forced to close.

A living history farm in Virginia was another target. Barricades went up at the Claude Moore Colonial Farm, shocking volunteers.

“We are critical of the National Park Service because we think they have closed us down illegally according to the terms of the agreement we signed with them in 1981. The agreement states that we will operate the Farm and open it to the public and the only thing they will provide is police protection if needed.”

Political appointees have also shuttered privately-operated campgrounds that generate money.

“We consider this an unnecessary and vindictive hardship placed on recreators, since our sites don’t take one dime of government money.”

Thankfully, flabbergasted staffers at Mount Vernon, a privately-funded non-profit, ignored the absurd demands and remained open.

I have lost respect for many of these people, including the park rangers who did not stand up to the political hacks.

I wonder what those in charge at the Department of the Interior have to say. Getting a response is next to impossible.

This behavior is worthy of Third World banana republics not the United States. The president and his allies are behaving thuggishly.
