Bits & Bytes

I’ve been out of commission for quite a while, but I’m feeling somewhat better now and trying to get caught up. My email has a ginormous backlog, what with all the stuff I subscribe to and the multitudinous pictures from recent family celebrations.

The Buzzers got to spend Easter with their Texas cousins. Mama Buzz said the kids were super good travelers and they all had a wonderful vacation!

2018_03 27 A&A on plane

Most of the e-subscription stuff is just going into the trash, cuz I can’t deal with it all. But some is kinda interesting, so here’s a sampling.

TRUMP ECONOMY: The U.S. unemployment rate in February marked a 17-year low. The number of Americans rating the economy good to excellent has hit an 18-year high. Average job growth numbers in 2018 are the strongest since 1997. Since January 2017, more than 2.5 million jobs have been added to the economy.

CUTTING SPENDING: White House chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow said White House officials and Congressional Republicans are putting together legislation to rescind spending from the $1.3 trillion omnibus budget they recently passed. A rescission bill could not be filibustered by Senate Democrats.

DEMOCRAT HYPOCRISY: President Donald J. Trump announced Tuesday that he will deploy U.S. troops to reinforce the Mexican border. Democrats acted like he had set a cross ablaze on someone’s lawn. But in 2010, President Obama deployed 1,200 National Guard troops and requested an extra $500 million to secure the Mexican border. One of my military kids who has served down there voiced disgust at the liberal head explosions. “We’ve had troops on the border for ages!”

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY WIN: Air Force Col. Leland Bohannon was on the verge of being promoted to a one-star general when he was suspended from command in 2017 for refusing to publicly affirm the same-sex spouse of a retiring subordinate. Thankfully, the Air Force has reversed its decision to punish this highly-decorated and respected officer.

ANTI-CHRISTIAN BIGOTRY: In 2016, after a young Muslim jihadist shot up a gay nightclub in Orlando, the Left Stream Media blamed it on Christians and Republicans, who allegedly have fostered such a climate of anti-gay hatred that this poor little Muslim jihadist could not help himself. But during the trial, it became clear that it was a terrorist attack, pure and simple. The shooter had originally intended to shoot up the Disney Springs shopping and entertainment complex and had switched to the gay nightclub randomly less than an hour before the attack. It is not clear he even knew it was a gay bar. Don’t hold your breath waiting for the Left to apologize to the millions of Americans they slandered unjustly.

SOCIAL MEDIA BIAS

Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are all censoring conservative content. As privately owned companies, I think they have that right and the courts agree. Dennis Prager tried to sue Google for censoring Prager University’s YouTube content and lost.

Facebook stopped sending Diamond and Silk’s 1.2 million followers notifications and YouTube recently demonetized their videos. After six months of stalling, Facebook finally told them, “The Policy team has came to the conclusion that your content and your brand has been determined unsafe to the community. This decision is final and it is not appeal-able in any way.”

Wow. Two black women supporting President Trump makes the world UNSAFE. ::smh:: 

It really fries my buns that these same Left-wing types tend to support gay activists who target Christian wedding vendors for doing the exact same thing and with far less impact. There are umpteen wedding vendors who are happy to service gay couples. But Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have a virtual monopoly on social media. I wish some big bucks right-winger would offer us alternatives!

David Hogg Will Skip Year of College to Focus on ’18 Elections After UC-Irvine Offers Admission

Hogg’s mother told CNN on Monday that her son “will not be going to college this year because he’s decided to take a year off and work on the midterm elections.”
TMZ reported on Sunday that Hogg received an acceptance letter from UCI that partly read: “Students choose UCI to make a true difference in the world, we hope you will too.”
After Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted that Hogg, who told numerous outlets that he was “hurt” that some of California’s top public schools rejected him, had whined about not being accepted to various colleges, the left-wing teenage activist immediately called on Ingraham’s advertisers to drop her.

This smarmy little foul mouthed punk thinks he can influence the midterm elections. Maybe he can. Every Republican should point out this is the kind of miserable trash the Democrats embrace. Apparently he’s never heard of Cindy Sheehan or Sandra Fluke. When he’s not useful to the left anymore he’ll stop getting air time on CNN.


MSNBC’s Joy Reid: What If Trump Refuses To Be Arrested By Federal Marshals?
IF HE DID THAT HE’D BE A DEMOCRAT… THEY IGNORE LAWS WHEN THEY FEEL LIKE IT.
“Let’s say that Donald Trump decides he doesn’t want to give an interview with Mueller, but Mueller says ‘Oh, but you will.’ And he’s subpoenaed to [be] interview[ed] [by] Robert Mueller. And Donald Trump simply says, ‘I don’t recognize that subpoena.’ This is a president whose behavior is different as president of the United States. He doesn’t follow convention. Who would force him to comply with the subpoena ordering him to do an interview with Robert Mueller?” Reid asked.
JUST IN CASE YOU’RE WONDERING WHAT THESE VERMIN FANTASIZE ABOUT

A George Soros-Backed Prosecutor Under FBI Investigation Indicts Republican Governor Eric Greitens—Because of a Dream
EVIDENCE? WE DON’T NEED NO STEENKING EVIDENCE! HE’S A REPUBLICAN. THAT’S ALL WE NEED TO KNOW.
Here’s the story: In St. Louis, Missouri, in 2018, a man was indicted for a felony for allegedly taking a compromising photograph of his mistress. From the beginning, the details were sketchy: the woman wasn’t sure if she’d seen a flash or heard a phone click. Under cross-examination, she revealed even more uncertainty. Turns out, she’d never actually seen a phone. She’d never seen a camera. She’d never seen a photo.
Oh — and she might have dreamt the whole thing up. That’s right: when asked by the prosecutor whether she had seen a phone, she said it was something she may once have had a dream about.

Unremorseful ‘drunk judge’ works 1 day in whole year, gets raise to nearly 200k, and then this crazy rant 
New York taxpayers spend nearly $200,000 every single year to fund the salary of an obnoxious “drunk judge” who as of April had only worked one day thus far this year.
IT’S GOOD TO BE A PROTECTED MINORITY
Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio earned the nickname of “drunk judge” after a court convicted her of a DWI in 2017 for a driving incident that occurred a year earlier
WHAM noted that the state’s Commission on Legislative, Judicial and Executive Compensation recently approved a raise for all New York judges, including Astacio. As a result, the “drunk judge” now collects a whopping $187,200 salary, all at the expense of New York taxpayers.
“Why’s my name in the headlines?” she wrote Monday afternoon. “You’re mad because I’m a young minority getting paid.”

Woman Sues Owner of Pennsylvania ‘Trump House’ Claiming it Caused Car Crash
In a lawsuit filed on Friday, a woman claims that a Pennsylvania house dedicated to then-candidate Donald Trump caused her to get into a car accident two weeks before the election.
Kellie Roadman of Ligonier claims that drivers were distracted by the patriotic house — which was painted to look like an American flag, had a 12’ cut out of Donald Trump and featured campaign decor in support of the then-candidate.
Roadman is now seeking more than $30,000 from Rossi and did not name the driver who actually hit her in the lawsuit.

Trump To Replace Liberal Lion Of The Ninth Circuit
Fearing a conservative jurist would replace Judge Stephen Reinhardt, the liberal lion of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a prominent progressive legal scholar quietly urged him to retire in the spring of 2014.
Reinhardt refused the overtures. Months later, Republicans assumed control of the Senate, effectively ending former President Barack Obama’s judicial confirmations. President Donald Trump’s election forced the judge into an awkward actuarial battle, an increasingly common phenomenon as judicial appointments become highly politicized. He died on March 29 at 87.

China’s Xi announces plans to ‘open’ China, including lowering tariffs on imported autos
Chinese President Xi Jinping speaks at the Boao Forum for Asia on Tuesday.
He discussed plans to further open up the Chinese economy, including “significantly” lowering import tariffs for autos, decreasing duties on other products, enforcing the legal intellectual property of foreign firms and improving the investment environment for international companies.
TRUMP CALLS CHINA’S BLUFF AND THEY BACK DOWN.
NAME ANOTHER POLITICIAN WITH THE NERVE TO DO THAT.

Tuition Rates About to ‘Triple’ for Some DACA Students in Arizona
With the court’s reversal, some say their dreams of getting college educations have been buried.
“We are an asset,” said Karina Ruiz, the president of the Arizona Dream Act Coalition. “We contribute. For this state to not give us a chance to continue to do so, it’s wrong.”
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich said that while he’s sympathetic to these kids and their hopes for higher education, he commended the court for cracking down on universities who were violating the law.
“It’s about time someone held them accountable, and that’s my job,” Brnovich said. “My role as AG is to make sure you’re following the law.”
