Oops!  Turns out that Trump offered Mexico our assistance in its fight with drug cartels.

Oops!  Turns out the “club” was a joke and never actually existed.

More than Oops!  This one turned out to be plain old FAKE NEWS that was uncritically passed on by CNN because it made Trump look bad.

Yo, Lefties. Do NOT presume to lecture me about ethics.

Cuz you have NO moral ground upon which to stand.

rights-for-all

Every argument [the Left makes] in favor of unfettered immigration applies even more directly to the unborn. Their position on illegal aliens and refugees is, after all, an ethical position. They appeal almost entirely to morality, dismissing with contempt practical concerns like security and sovereignty. They say that these people — illegal aliens, refugees — are human beings and as such they deserve to be treated with respect (which is true). They say that it is our responsibility as citizens to deal with whatever inconvenience or burden caused by their presence. Their right to enter our country supersedes our own concerns (which is definitely not true).

” And yet the same people who make this argument will utterly reject the exact same argument as it pertains to children. They deny that parents have any moral obligation to their unborn children. They deny that children have any right whatsoever to enter the world. They proclaim that the inconvenience caused by a child’s presence supersedes his right to exist. In other words, they say that an American citizen has a GREATER responsibility to an immigrant from Mexico or a refugee from Syria than to her own child.

Friday Afternoon Matinee

Had a checkup today. The good news is, my pacemaker’s doing fine. The bad news is the day ain’t over. Had lunch with DW at the tres chic Taco Bell. (I have a weakness for gordita supremes.)

There is the usual cascade of items today, but there are so many videos I thought I’d post some here and leave the heady stuff for the comment section.

The Super Bowl is Sunday, in case you haven’t heard. Not decided if I’m going to post any of the hopelessly overpriced ads. The New England Patriots’ owner, Robert Kraft, the coach, Bill Bellichek, and the star quarterback, Tom Brady are all friends of the President. Brady is getting all kinds of grief and even people who hate football are certain to tune in, in the hopes of seeing him get hurt for his unforgivable behavior.

To cleanse the palate, imagine archaeologists thousands of years from now sifting through the digital rubble of our civilization in search of scant bits of cultural data — and finding this. They would probably conclude that it’s newsreel footage from an esoteric tribal war fought long ago by lunatic warrior-poets, speaking ecstatic gibberish as they slaughter each other.

Which, pretty much, yeah.

Relatedly, how many times this weekend will various media remind us that Tom Brady is palsies with the president and that that’s a doubleplusungood thing to be?

I challenge you …

… to watch this video without laughing out loud and clapping your hands!  It’s fabulous!

Victory for Free Speech

Feb 2, 2017:  The 162nd District Court of Texas ruled decisively against Mohammed Mohammed’s defamation lawsuit against Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro.

The court also ordered the father of Ahmed “Clock Boy” Mohammed to pay Shapiro’s attorneys’ fees.

“This is an excellent day for free speech,” Shapiro said. “Using law as warfare is perhaps the most disgusting tactic of politically correct activists across the country, and we couldn’t be more excited to stand up against such frivolous use of our court system.”

Team Trump threw out Obama’s ISIS plans

Three days before the inauguration, Obama’s team handed their ISIS plans over to Team Trump, who put them straight into the circular file.

“They provided the information, but we found huge gaps in it,” a senior Trump official told WaPo. “It was poor staff work.”

Plus, you know, ISIS became a global scourge on Obama’s watch, so yeah.

Good news for coal jobs

Feb 2, 2017: Under Obama’s watch, the coal industry lost 83,000 jobs and 400 companies went out of business.  Today, Senate Republicans moved to undo one of Obama’s job-killing regulations. It will go into effect as soon as President Trump signs it.

Protest or Nihilism?

2017_02-01-uc-berkley-riot

Feb 2, 2017 Commentary by Matt Walsh: 

A word about last night.

As you probably heard, a riot broke out on the campus of UC Berkeley ostensibly because Milo Yionnapoulos was scheduled to give a speech. Fires were started. Rocks and bricks were thrown. Buildings and trees were burned (in the most environmentally conscious way, of course). Innocent bystanders were attacked, punched, pepper sprayed, and beaten unconscious. Businesses were destroyed. The usual drill. The Left simply expressed itself the only way it knows how.

The media has, as always, implicitly encouraged the violence and chaos by lending it the more noble title of “protest.” These concerned students were “protesting” a guy’s opinions by vandalizing banks and assaulting random women, they tell us. Which is like “protesting” a speeding ticket by shooting your neighbor’s cat.

No, these are not protests. Frankly, I don’t even believe that these people were all that upset about Milo, just as I didn’t believe that the thugs looting convenience stores in Ferguson were all that upset about Michael Brown getting shot. I think what we’re seeing here is nihilism. It’s not that they care too much or care in the wrong way, but that they don’t care at all. About anything. They’re just bored, empty, and filled with more hatred than they know how to contain.

If this was truly a “protest” against Milo, they would have protested by doing… nothing. Even the dimmest bulb in that crowd must realize that they’re giving Milo everything he wants by reacting this way. He gets media attention, he sells books, and all of his points about them are proven. So, if they really wanted to hurt him, they would have yawned and gone about their day. Paid him no attention. Rioting over a speaker on your campus is the absolute best thing that could happen to that speaker. The worst would be sparse attendance and bored expressions.

I know I’m not revealing some deeply hidden truth. Everyone knows this. So why did they go out and do everything they could to ensure that the person they hated would win the day and his message would be amplified? Because they’re violent, aimless, thugs and they just felt like burning stuff. Don’t dignify this lunacy by calling it a protest. Don’t even dignify it by lecturing them about proper ways to vent their anger.

“Angry” people don’t destroy private property for no reason. That’s what attention starved punks do. And Leftism has created a whole generation of them because Leftism is, at its root, hollow, confused, self-contradictory, and spiteful. This is what happens when a generation is raised in that kind of ideology. They start fires just to start them, because they don’t know what else to do. It’s really as simple as that.

“Freedom of religion is a sacred right.”

2017_01-trumps-at-prayer

Feb 2, 2017: During his speech at the national prayer breakfast this morning, President Donald Trump called freedom of religion a sacred right and promised that his administration will do everything in its power to protect religious liberty.

That includes getting rid of the Johnson amendment that prohibits pastors and churches from speaking out on political issues by making them worry about their nonprofit status being revoked. Trump said that America will flourish “when religious liberty can flourish.”
