MY FAVORITE RESPONSE TO CRENSHAW’S TWEET: “If I ever heard you claiming to be “Triggered,” I’d demand you give your Trident back. I’m confident they don’t hand out Stress Cards in BUDS, either. Sometimes, America needs some bad-asses who are able to survive unpleasantness. That’s why we have a SOCOM.”
PROTECTING DEMOCRATS: The Left hates Cruz and all things Texas GOP, so no big surprise that Reuters sat on the story about Robert Francis O’Rourke’s teen membership in Cult of the Dead Cow, one of “the most interesting and influential hacking group in history.”
Apparently, Reuters is less concerned with protecting “Beto” as a potential presidential candidate, since they broke the story on Friday.

TRUMP DOSSIER: Former British spy Christopher Steele faked up the infamous “Trump dossier” that Hillary and the DNC paid for, then arranged to have “leaked” to the press and FBI. Steele has admitted that one of his “sources” was a 2009 report he found on CNN’s iReport website. CNN says, “iReport is a user-generated site. That means the stories submitted by users are not edited, fact-checked, or screened before they post.” IOW, any conspiracy whack job was free to post nonsense.
MASSIVE POLL: 53,408 registered Republicans who say they are likely to vote in their state primaries/caucuses – 85% approve of the job Trump’s been doing. 76% would like to see him have a second term.
BORDER CRISIS: This is NUTS! – Criminal organizations in Mexico have mounted a lucrative new smuggling operation that uses express buses to deliver Guatemalan migrant families to the U.S. border in a matter of days for a cost of up to $7,000 per adult with child. Once they arrive at the border, they simply line up and wait to cross over and be taken in by authorities. The migrants know that, if they have children with them, they will be released into the U.S. pending a hearing and that is what they are seeking.
ICC WITCH HUNT: Trump says hell no to ICC investigators – U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday that the government plans to deny visas to International Criminal Court investigators who are looking to probe Americans in Afghanistan and elsewhere for war crimes.
“We are determined to protect the American and allied military and civilian personnel from living in fear of unjust prosecution for actions taken to defend our great nation,” Pompeo said.
DEVOUT CATHOLICS: This article is very short and well worth reading –
EXCERPT: “Time and again the media have put the worst possible face on the [priest sexual abuse] scandal, leaving the public to believe that it will never end.
“The fact is there are reporters, pundits, educators, activists, entertainers, lawyers, and professional victims’ groups, as well as Catholic dissidents, who don’t want it to end. Their goal is to keep it alive so they can push for their secular reforms.
“Beware of being played by those with an agenda.”

FACEBOOK SUCKS: The Wounded Blue Edition – On March 13, 2019, Facebook banned this ad. The ad is does not contain any violent imagery, nor does it condone or advocate violence. It just asks folks to give money to help police officers recovering from grave injuries.
FOX SHOULD BE ASHAMED: Jeanine Pirro, whose show did not air on Saturday night, was suspended by Fox News after her widely criticized commentary doubting Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s patriotism, according a source familiar with the matter. There is no word on whether Pirro’s show will return next week. At the same time, there is no indication that she has been fired from Fox.
Donald Trump did a 3 part tweet in response.
“Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well. Fox …..
“…must stay strong and fight back with vigor. Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them. Be strong & prosper, be weak & die! Stay true….
….to the people that got you there. Keep fighting for Tucker, and fight hard for @JudgeJeanine. Your competitors are jealous – they all want what you’ve got – NUMBER ONE. Don’t hand it to them on a silver platter. They can’t beat you, you can only beat yourselves!”
Allahpundit at Hot Air pundited, “Given the intimacy of the Trump/Fox relationship, that feels less like a politician criticizing a news outlet than a memo from the programming director to his employees. What it really is, though, is a tacit warning to FNC that their fans are first and foremost his fans, and if he’s unhappy about how they’re treating his favorite cronies at the network, he can make it so that Fox viewers are unhappy about it too.”
MAGA HAT ATTACK: In the video, one of the group members says, “We drive all around town with these flags. We get a lot of positive feedback.”
The other guys says, “You know it’s funny, people think of California as all crazy liberals that have lost their minds …”
At that moment, he got hit in the back of the head with a 7 Up can.
“Well, there’s one of them right there! … I’m keeping this as a little souvenir of how pathetic the left has become.”
IDIOTS: Maine’s Governor Janet Mills wants the state to allow physician assistants and some types of nurses to commit abortions. Well, sure, why not. Doctors are already maiming and killing women. Why not let non-doctors join the fun. Just so long as they don’t use coat hangers, right?
BLUE FOOTED BOOBIES: Proof that God has a rollicking sense of humor! LOL
