No Infrastructure For You

Ever since President Carter’s creation of the Department of Energy in 1977, the purpose of which was to become energy independent.  It was a total failure. Not until 2019 in the Trump Administration did the country reach energy independence, where production exceeds consumption, for the first time in 62 years.

That was a time when the economy experienced an economic slowdown, gas prices were rising, gas stations were running out of gas, and the ones that had gas had lines going down the street. The Unites States was at the mercy of foreign countries for oil because we didn’t have enough supply of our own.  People referred to the economy back than as the Carter Malaise.  News organizations were polling and reporting what they called the “Misery Index” on a daily basis.

That President Trump could do this in only 3 years says a lot about the Washington insiders and bureaucrats that, by their actions, or in this case, in-action, could not do. The same politicians who go bonkers come election time, always wanting to spend (they call invest) billions and trillions of dollars in RBI, Roads, Bridges, and Infrastructure. (Joe Biden was in charge of doing just that under President Obama. Remember the “shovel ready” joke?) Should be obvious by now that they didn’t mean a word they said.

The irony in President Biden putting the kibosh on the most important infrastructure project in our time, that truly made us energy independent, somehow (not really) escapes notice in the media.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Systemic crime

The Left (Democrats/Media), are amplifying “systemic racism” in the country. Since its founding no less. Weird how they just started pushing that narrative when President Trump first ran and won, and not before. 

Playing the Race Card is where they go when they’re out of ideas, or, to distract from real problems facing the country. 

If there’s anything “systemic” going on that needs to be addressed, it’s the systemic violence in Democrat-run cities. The riots, the murders, the shootings, the robberies, the rapes, the no-go zones, the guns, and the drugs. And this has not existed since the country’s founding.

It started when Law Enforcers suddenly became the bad guys, and criminals the victims. Credit The Community Organizer and President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, and “his wing-man” Eric Holder for that. He started it. D’s and the media embraced the narrative. And we are where we are today because of it. 

Politically, it serves their agenda better to blame the opposition Party with the Race Card, than to own up to their failures and get right with enforcing laws everywhere. Protecting people everywhere. Spinning systemic racism like they do is only killing more of the Americans they pretend to represent. But to Democrats, if it means keeping political power, it’s worth it. Or to put it another way, for Democrats, Black lives really don’t matter.

Media incites assassination?

One can’t deny the unifying power of President Trump. Even when he doesn’t try.

Democrats, including their candidate for Vice President, have weighed in on the use of force and violence. They’re really in tune (in their own mind) on threats of this nature. For example . . .

Now, eight days before Biden’s inauguration, the media writes about “Targeting A President” in a story about “impeaching” President Trump. A title like “Impeaching A President” just doesn’t do enough for them. We know what Democrats and the Media, but I repeat myself, mean to convey by wording like this. Politically speaking,  there’s not much difference between a bulls-eye and target. One marks the target, the other is the target. For example, remember how they reacted to a Sarah Palin add about congressional district races, ie. Gabby Giffords?

Parties reversed, Democrat leaders would call this a dog whistle to assassinate the President. But they’re not. Giving the Sharpshooter Wing (any wackjob with a gun looking for an excuse) of the Democrat Party the green light. 

Here’s the Front Page of the local, shrinking, newspaper.

Oh the depth and breadth of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Without even trying, President Trump has unified the Democrat Party in supporting violence against their political opposition. Up to and including assassination. 

Note: Currently, Google returns 50 million hits on “democrats target trump.”

Bobulinski blackout

“Tony Bobulinski, former business associate of Hunter Biden, addresses media in Nashville, Tenn. ahead of second presidential debate.”
 
And by “media,” only FOX News covered it live or reported it.
 
Here’s where the media is today. Well, aside from being the PR Department for the Democrat Party. For over three years, they have been reporting nothing but Trump/Russia collusion in trying to rig the election to favor Trump. Which was proven to be a lie. And they still carry it on today, a la Rep. Adam BullSchiff.
 
And today, when there is a real live participant (that would be like a real whistleblower), who wants to publicly set the record straight, the same media will NOT cover it. Which arguably could be considered an attempt to rig THIS election.
 

Putin’s Puppets

60 Minutes reports that Russia’s goal is to sow discord and division in and about our country. Ironic that they don’t credit Democrats and the media for doing Putin’s bidding.

Former FBI spy-hunter Robert Anderson says Russia’s goals today are the same as in the Soviet era: to sow discord in the U.S. and doubt about our democracy around the world.

Obama White House, Hook’em Up

I had forgotten all about President Obama’s White House giving polygraphs to staffers and spying on the media, to stop staffers from leaking to the media.  And in James Rosen’s case, his parents too. What reminded me was Obama’s nose-in-the-air diatribe in Illinois the other day, about how President Trump calls out Fake News. See the difference between calling them out, and, using the intelligence apparatus of the country to prosecute the ‘free press?’ But the Carnival Barker would have you believe that Trump calling out ‘Fake News’ as Fake News is abusive of the Office of the President. In Obama’s case, weaponizing the government to target political opponents is nothing new. Mainstream media just doesn’t cover news harmful to the political Left.

Security Clearance Smoke

The media reaction to President Trump pulling the security clearance from former CIA Director John Brennan, and considering doing same to other key participants as well, is interesting in two areas.

John Brennan, a CNN talking head, CNN, and their soul brothers in the media call it a restriction on his freedom of speech. I haven’t noticed Brennan or the media change their use of the First Amendment, have you? In fact, Jake Tapper, Jim Sciutto, Evan Perez and Carl Bernstein won the Merriman Smith Award for their broadcast work and reporting on the dossier. The “story” did not require a tireless investigation. It was handed to CNN by DNI James Clapper. The media always covers for, and protects, their own. They do it by giving the persons whose name is in the by-line an award. In this case, appropriately so, the media chose The White House Correspondent’s Dinner to announce it. It’s their attempt to add legitimacy to a bogus story. You might remember when Dan Rather got his award for the bogus GW Bush  National Guard story. A story that, like the fake dossier, also could not be verified.

The other is the direction from which they report on his motive behind his action. Paraphrasing, “He’s just doing this because they are investigating him for Russia collusion.”

Well, YEAH!

But they say his motivation is to obstruct justice. Which is also irrelevant because that has nothing to do with the ongoing investigation. It has to do with how this investigation really began over two years ago. And Brennan played a big role. (Which is why the initiating documents and related communications still have not seen the light of day.) It is not about what is going on with Mueller today.

They look at it as a threat to national security. And it is. But on the part of the former government officials, not Trump. Former officials with security clearances getting classified information from current government officials, and with that, starting the plan to destroy candidate Trump’s campaign, and then his presidency.

You can’t have people on the outside with top security clearance getting information from people on the inside with top security clearance. Realize that these are swamp dwellers, democrats and Never Trumpers I’m talking about. I don’t think for a second that Brennan not having his security clearance would have stopped Mueller, Comey, Clapper, or anyone else from leaking to the media. There’s simply no reason, as a matter of course, to take your security clearance with you when you leave your employ.

The Commander-in-Chief yanked Brennan’s security clearance to get control of national security. Not to breach it.

Great Britain Lost Control

In the U.K., anybody who does not follow and subscribe to the orthodoxy of the left — including open-border immigration, permitting endless streams of militant Islamists into European countries, if you oppose that — you are being categorized as “far right” and can be arrested, according to Great Britain’s laws.

Tommy Robinson not only doesn’t approve of that, he reports on the effects of that, including the trial he was covering that was about sex rings run by these immigrants. 80% of whom are Islamists. And was arrested for it.

The judge put a gag order on Robinson’s arrest AND a gag order on the news media from covering the trials. Nothing like protecting the perps and arresting transparency.

Great Britain has no Constitution or guaranteed right of free speech. There’s a reason the Founding Fathers believed in that basic freedom, not derived from government, but from God.

But it gets worse for Tommy Robinson. Going to prison among the Muslim prisoners will most likely be a death sentence for him. Great Britain has lost control.

The NRA Distraction

The gun grabbers are at it again. The KOSites and fellow travelers cranked up their bots, generating faux outrage and “complaints” to companies the NRA has business agreements with, and demanding they separate themselves from them. They are also attacking the 1st Amendment by trying to get social media like YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook, to not carry NRA-TV’s programming.

You might like to know the companies that succumbed to this phony campaign.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car, First National Bank of Omaha, Avis Car Rental, Allied Van Lines, Budget Rent-A-Car, Chubb, Delta Airlines, Hertz Rent-A-Car, MetLife, North American Van Lines, TrueCar, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Symantec and United Airlines.

Just as the NRA had nothing to do with the Las Vegas shooting, the NRA has zero to do with the Parkland or any other shooting.

We are witness to the Dems’ normal behavior of not letting a crisis go to waste, when you can use it to advance your agenda. Blaming everything and every one except the perp. Not making the students any more safe.

Hillary Clinton’s reaction after the Las Vegas slaughter of concertgoers . . .

Notice how Hillary attempts to inoculate herself from being political by being political with this “We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA.” Stand up to the NRA? For what? They have nothing to do with it. Using this school shooting and 17 dead bodies to go after the NRA and the 2nd Amendment should be enough to show that Democrats and Progressives don’t give a wit for those students.

What they should be asking is why the shooter wasn’t flagged for his obvious wacko mental condition when he was evaluated by mental health authorities after he assaulted someone on Jan. 17, 2017? Among other failures, this one was the only one that would have prevented the shooter from legally buying any gun. Something that the NRA happens to support. And something that everyone can agree with.
