On the Water with Ting and the Captain

A few weekends ago, Pentecost weekend to be precise, Gruntessa and I had the pleasure of meeting up with PoliNation blogger Ting and her husband on their beautiful sailboat at a secret marina somewhere on the mid-Atlantic coast for a little R&R.

Freedom2

By early May, everyone was ready to enjoy a sunny day on the water.  This part of the Atlantic coast has seen more than its share of rain and cool temperatures this spring.  Climate change still has a long way to go, apparently, in these parts.  A Saturday with a forecast of 80 degrees and clear skies was something we just couldn’t pass up.

Thanks, Ting and Captain!  After an insanely difficult work quarter and a crazy run-up to the 2016 Presidential Conventions, it was wonderful to make way under wind power for an afternoon and enjoy some real freedom while catching up on families and solving the world’s political problems.  Bon voyage!

The Most Vicious Punk In America Is:

Virginia governor, Clinton bagman, and flea-infested gutter rat Terry “The Punk’ McAuliffe. Once again, he bested some stiff competition from the likes of Chuck Schumer, Slapsie Maxie Waters, Georgie-Boy Clooney, radio hack Mike Malloy, every host on MSNBC, and perennial runner-up Alan ‘Die Quickly’ Grayson. He co-ordinated the illegal foreign donations from the likes of John Huang and Charlie Trie. When his pals got kicked out of the People’s house in Jan. 2001, he bought them their house in Chappaqua so Hillary could continue her insatiable quest for money and power.

They returned the favor by helping him steal the Virginia governorship after the former governor was convicted of accepting a few gifts. He should have been a Democrat, he’d still be there. Now comes word he’s under investigation in connection with the Clinton money laundering operation. There is no cause for concern, though, because he knows nothing will ever come of it. He intends to circumvent the state congress’s veto and pardon 2,000 felons and grant them voting rights by executive order. Strategically placed, they could swing a few key precincts and turn the state solid blue.

First ‘Clinton Cash’ Domino to Fall: FBI Investigating Hillary Bagman Terry McAuliffe

Virginia Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the FBI and prosecutors from the Justice Department’s public integrity unit, U.S. officials briefed on the probe say.

As part of the probe, the officials said, investigators have scrutinized McAuliffe’s time as a board member of the Clinton Global Initiative, a vehicle of the charitable foundation set up by former President Bill Clinton.

Among the McAuliffe donations that drew the interest of the investigators was $120,000 from a Chinese businessman, Wang Wenliang, through his U.S. businesses. Wang was previously delegate to China’s National People’s Congress, the country’s ceremonial legislature.

Virginia GOP Sues to Void McAuliffe Order Restoring Voting Rights to Felons

The state’s GOP lawmakers charged that McAuliffe’s order violated the Virginia constitution, arguing that the law makes clear the governor can solely grant clemency on an individual basis.

The lawsuit was filed in the Virginia Supreme Court and asked justices to strike down the order. It also demanded that the state annul all convict voter registrations received since McAuliffe issued the order last month.

McAuliffe’s order would reinstate voting rights to 206,000 violent and nonviolent felons who have finished their prison sentences in Virginia, including those who have not yet applied for a restoration of rights.

The unprecedented action would also allow felons in Virginia to sit on a jury, serve in elected office, or become a notary.

Just once before I pass, I’d like to see an important democrat pay a price for the theft, lies and corruption they deal in as a matter of rote.

The Rise of the Sandernistas

AND OTHER STUPID STUFF

Senator Boxer Claims Bernie Supporters Made Her Fear for Her Life: “It Was Scary”
Senator Barbara Boxer was booed off stage as all hell broke loose at the Nevada Democratic Convention last weekend. She also claims that Bernie Sanders supporters were so unhinged that she feared for her life.

BABS LIKES BULLYING GENERALS WHO HAVE A STRICT CODE OF CONDUCT. IT’S ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT WHEN SHE’S CONFRONTED WITH THE PRODUCT OF THEIR MISERABLE EDUCATION SYSTEM.
CNN reports:

Earlier Wednesday, California’s other Democratic senator, Barbara Boxer, said Sanders supporters should attempt “to change the primary process, but not to go out there and throw chairs and to put people’s lives in danger because the democratic process as put forward and ratified by the two parties is being carried out.”

Boxer said she felt threatened after outbursts and threats at the Nevada Democratic Convention from supporters of Sanders over the weekend.
I feared for my safety and I had a lot of security around me,” she told CNN’s Kate Bolduan on “At This Hour.” “I’ve never had anything like this happen.”

Snopes: Media Accounts of Sandernista Chair Throwing at Nevada Convention ‘False’

CNN AND THE NEW YORK SLIMES ARE TWO OF THE CULPRITS… WHAT A SURPRISE
You might have heard the tales of horror over the supposed throwing of chairs by disgruntled Bernie Sanders supporters at the recent Democrat convention in Nevada. Several news outlets repeated those fables to demonstrate how barbaric the Sandernistas are in stark contrast to the “civilized” folks who support Hillary Clinton. California Senator Barbara Boxer who was present even claimed that she feared for her safety. However, one problem. No chairs were thrown. Snopes.Com has rated that story as false.

One of the news outlets that promulgated the fable about the thrown chairs was the New York Times:

Thrown chairs. Leaked cellphone numbers. Death threats spewed across the Internet.

Another culprit was CNN, which uncritically passed along tales about chairs thrown by the Bernie barbarians:

So why the eagerness to promote the chair throwing fairy tale? Probably because it helps the faltering Hillary campaign by comparing her favorably to the “out of control” Sandernistas. And it also explains the MSM frustration with Bernie for remaining in the campaign until the bitter end.

ANOTHER MEDIA EXAMPLE OF EATING THEIR OWN

Obama’s world farewell tour – Next stops Vietnam and Japan

His visit this week to Vietnam, Japan marks 10th presidential trip to Asia
President expects to take multiple trips this year to Asia, Europe, Latin America

HE’S GOING TO SQUEEZE AS MUCH FREE STUFF OUT OF THE TAXPAYER AS HE CAN

HANOI, Vietnam

As the candidates vying to replace him get increasingly aggressive, President Barack Obama is embarking on a sort of farewell tour to the world.

His visit this week to Vietnam and Japan – he arrived late Sunday Vietnam time – is one of at least seven treks abroad this year. It’s a schedule that will take him out of the country almost once a month from March through November, when voters will pick his replacement, and it is not unusual for presidents on their way out the door.

U.S. Economy Slowdown > Massive Job Losses

Jobless guy

“According to Challenger, Gray & Christmas, U.S. firms announced 65,141 job cuts during April, which represented a massive 35 percent increase over the previous month. And so far this year overall, job cut announcements are running 24 percent higher than for the exact same period in 2015. Meanwhile, on Thursday we learned that initial claims for unemployment benefits shot up dramatically last week. In fact, the jump of 17,000 was the largest increase that we have seen in over a year. Of course the U.S. economy has been slowing down for quite a while now, and many have been wondering when we would begin to see that slowdown reflected in the employment numbers. Well, that day has now arrived.”

Arizona steps up

ABORTION civilized people

May 17, 2016: Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey signed legislation that gives new powers to the director of the state’s Medicaid program to disqualify dangerous and/or scofflaw health care providers from receiving Medicaid reimbursals.  Reasons include:

  • neglecting a patient in a way that results in death or injury;
  • failing to complete mandatory reports of sexual assault or statutory rape;
  • failing to segregate tax dollars to ensure none goes to pay for elective abortions.

That last one includes accounting for all overhead expenses like rent, lights and heat, because Planned Parenthood is well known for sliming past “no tax dollars for abortion” laws by putting tax moneys into paying basic expenses for the facility in which abortions are performed.

In 2012, a federal court blocked Arizona’s attempts to disqualify abortion groups from Medicaid outright.

Lawmakers believe this is new law will survive legal challenge, because it simply allows the state agency to suspend any organization that does not obey the law.

If the organization corrects its problems, it could once again become part of the Medicaid program. This is no different than a restaurant that gets shut down for health violations.
