This smug, pompous Ø-pinion didn’t age well!  Twitchy Team said, “We know, his voice makes our left eye twitch uncontrollably but hey, it’s one of his greatest hits.”

Øbama said Trump had no plan for bringing jobs back, that there was no answer to the problem, that it JUST COULDN’T HAPPEN.

Guess what, DemØcrats. TAX CUTS WORK. Continue reading

A Steep Hill to Climb

The pile of links just keeps a-gettin’ higher. I may have to break this into two different posts. That’s okay, DW isn’t around and there’s nothing on my busy social calendar today. Lucky you.

SYRIA: It took a Republican president to actually enforce the previous Democrat president’s “red line.”

JOB GAINS: Since Trump took office, unemployment has declined in every major demographic group, but the greatest drop has been for Americans with disabilities, a demographic that typically has a higher jobless rate than the average citizen.

CATCH AND RELEASE: President Donald J. Trump has signed a Presidential Memorandum that takes important steps to end “catch and release,” a dangerous practice whereby those who have violated our Nation’s immigration laws are released into the United States shortly after their apprehension.

EX-FEMINIST: A feminist comes to terms with the Men’s Rights movement: “We have to stop expecting to be offended.” This is an amazing talk and WELL WORTH YOUR TIME! My favorite line: “No one will ever listen to you more than someone who transcribes your words. You should write that down.”

FACEBOOK CEO:  Zuckerburg talks about Facebook “as if he’s running a kindly charity – his customers are ‘the community’, and all he does is ‘connect’ them, a word that means harvesting your personal information as Planned Parenthood harvests your body parts. Streamlining traditional business models by discreetly transforming the customer into the product has proved infinitely more lucrative than making widgets.”

PRAGER U: As the Rich Get Richer, the Poor Get Richer

PRAGER U: Alejandro Chafuen of The Acton Institute conducted a study of think tank and other organizations that promote a free economy on such popular social-media platforms as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. He found PragerU the undisputed leader in short educational videos with over 340 million views on YouTube.

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.

Remember way back when global warming pundits assured us that snow would be a distant memory by now? The latest “official word” from them now is that global warming is responsible for all the snow. Heh.  Photo: Rose Garden March 21, 2018.

ECONOMY: Pew Research Center says 53% of Americans currently rate the economy good to excellent. This is the highest in some 18 years.

PROTECTING CRIMINALS: U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi believes San Franciscans are all SAFER because of the city’s sanctuary policy. Last month, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf warned illegals that ICE was about to do a round-up in the bay area, resulting in 800 illegals avoiding arrest. Since then, three have already gone on to commit new crimes.

IT WAS OKAY WHEN BARACK DID IT: Lefties have been shrieking about President Trump calling Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on winning re-election. The last time Putin won re-election, then-President Obama called to congratulate him.

STUPID RUNS IN THE FAMILY: Hunter Biden, the younger son of Vice President Joe Biden, failed a drug test for cocaine, one month after his commissioning into the Navy Reserve. He has been discharged.

PRO-ABORTS LOSE: Democrat voters in Illinois’ third congressional district narrowly re-elected pro-life Democrat Lipinski 51-49. This, despite the millions of dollars pro-abortion groups — like NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and Emily’s List — poured into his radical pro-abortion opponent’s campaign.

SEX CRIMES: The U.S. Senate voted 97-2 to approve a bill to crack down on sex trafficking. The legislation makes it a crime to operate a facility such as an internet platform with the intent to promote prostitution.

INFRASTRUCTURE: Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-OH) explains that President Trump’s infrastructure plan “takes on the mountain of regulatory hurdles that slow down the projects critical for improving and maintaining our national infrastructure.”

CANADIANS USED TO BE SO NICE:  Throughout Ontario, Canada’s public school, child sex ed curriculum, there is no mention of love or marriage. Instead the curriculum teaches …

… 1st graders to “identify body parts, including genitalia (e.g., penis, testicles, vagina, vulva)”;
… 3rd graders that gender is fluid and same sex parents are normal;
… 5th graders that gender identity and sexual orientation are not under one’s control;
… 6th graders how to masturbate and encouraging them to try it;
… 7th graders about anal and oral sex and that anything that “gives you pleasure” is okay;
… 8th graders to make a ‘personal plan’ for their sexual activity.

Thanks to tax reform, the NFIB Small Business Economic Trends Survey optimism index hit a record high of 107.6 in February.

Yesterday, President Trump inspected eight border wall prototypes. He said he preferred taller walls and walls that allowed Border Patrol agents to see through the barrier.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, Trump $18 billion “big beautiful wall” will pay for itself by curbing the importation of crime, drugs and illegal immigrants who tend to go on the federal dole.

The 5th Circuit Court has upheld Texas’ Sanctuary Cities Ban, declaring it lawful and constitutional.

President Trump has fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. CIA director Mike Pompeo will take over at State. This is good news for pro-life and pro-family advocates since Pompeo has a lengthy record in support of a right to life and in opposition to the homosexual agenda.

Gina Haspel, who became deputy director of the agency last month, will become the first woman director of the CIA. (Don’t hold your breath waiting on the Feminist Left to applaud.)

The White House has fired Steve Goldstein, the Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, after contradicting the account of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s dismissal.

House Intelligence Committee Republicans announced Monday that they found “no evidence of collusion,” between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin in the panel’s ‘Russia probe.’ The Deep State and Democrats aren’t taking the news well.

The abortion debate is over for the Democratic Party. Nine months from Election Day, political veterans eyeing the House landscape struggle to even identify a single Democratic House hopeful — of the hundreds running — who openly opposes abortion rights.

A month after her disparaging comment against Vice President Mike Pence, talk show host Joy Behar finally apologized.

Keeping Promises

2018 Trump turning ship of state around by Garrison

U.S. building permits have soared to their highest level since 2007.

During a three-month period late last year, U.S. Border Patrol agents seized a staggering 161 pounds of fentanyl, an amount equivalent to 36 million lethal doses.

90% of all illegal immigrants arrested last year had previous criminal convictions or were wanted on charges.

More reasons for Dems to sit down and scowl

2018_02 SOTU Democrats

Last week, the numbers of Americans filing for unemployment benefits fell to its lowest level in nearly 45 years.

The number of individuals getting food stamps (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP) has continued to decline under the Trump Administration.

The satellite provider DISH announced that it is bringing about 1,000 sales, human resources, and customer relations jobs back to the U.S. from overseas.

This week, Chipotle joined the ranks of companies giving out cash, stock bonuses, and improved parental leave benefits to workers following sweeping changes to the outdated U.S. tax code championed by President Trump.
