Democrat Hide and Seek

There was a post on my Facebook feed from a local politician running for state rep. I commented why is it that some candidates will not declare their political affiliation. It’s a culture of lies and deception to achieve an end. So it goes in Wisconsin.

Scott Walker Participates in Nearly Twice as Many Public Events as Dem Challenger

Tony Evers spent September raising money from unions.

The Democratic candidate hauled in $714,511 from committees throughout the month, $611,000 of which came from union-affiliated committees. Continue reading

In the Top of the News… It’s Winter… It’s Cold

As my dear Honors English teacher, Mrs. Gladys Ford, used to say, “Your powers of observation are exceeded only by your affection for the obvious.” I sure loved that woman. Most kids hated her because she made them think or she flunked them.

D.A. Refusing to Prosecute Planned Parenthood Selling Baby Parts Was Defeated, Replacement Fires Her Staff
You may remember Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson, the faux “pro-life” Republican who refused to prosecute accused neck-twisting Houston abortionist Doug Karpen. She also later flipped a grand jury that was supposed to investigate Planned Parenthood, but instead indicted pro-life journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt.
Daleiden and Merritt’s charges were later dismissed after it was revealed that Anderson had violated the law to indict them.
Illustrating that old adage — “What goes around comes around” — Anderson was soundly defeated in November.
But it gets better.
Her replacement has notified 40 prosecutors that their services are no longer needed.

MORE BAD NEWS FOR BABY KILLERS
Texas officially kicking Planned Parenthood out of Medicaid
Texas health officials on Tuesday delivered a final legal notice to nix the funding Planned Parenthood receives through the Medicaid program
In a move that could affect thousands of low-income women, state health officials on Tuesday delivered a final legal notice to defund the organization from the Medicaid program through which it provides family planning and women’s health services to the poor. Planned Parenthood had previously received $3.1 million in Medicaid funding, but those dollars will be nixed in 30 days, according to the notice which was obtained by The Texas Tribune.

Walker urges Trump to restore power to the states
MADISON, Wis. – Gov. Scott Walker is offering President-elect Donald Trump some Tenth Amendment advice on governing.
Walker, whose ambition for the White House was run over early by the Trump train, urges the incoming Republican president to restore state control and ease “incessant federal overreach.”

Can Republican senators get to 60 seats in 2018?
Nevertheless, the Senate already bears watching — not to see whether Democrats can retake the body in 2018, which seems unlikely now, but to see whether Republicans can strengthen their hold on the Senate and strengthen the hand of President Trump.

Scarborough Warns: Republicans Will Be ‘Wiped Out’ in 2018 if They Go Too Far Right
Scarborough drew the analogy to the 1994, and more specifically to the 2010 midterm elections, when Dems suffered cataclysmic losses after an emboldened Obama admin governed from the left in its first two years.
Scarborough misses an important point, in the view of this Insurrectionist. Dems didn’t get punished in 2010 because of the abstract notion that they governed too far to the left. They lost because their liberal policies failed. The economy remained in the doldrums. And people could see that Obamacare was heading for failure.

[CtH: A poll I saw yesterday supports the author, not Scarborough. NONE of the top issues for voters were social issues, like abortion, climate change, and gay marriage. The top ones were the economy and national security.]

Andrea Bocelli Backs Out of Trump Inauguration Performance After Backlash

The Italian tenor had reportedly been courted by Trump in person last week after a performance at Madison Square Garden in New York, and was said to be pondering the offer.
Trump is known to be a huge fan of the blind singer, and has previously booked Bocelli to perform at a private party at his club in Florida.
However, under pressure from a backlash by his fans on social media, Bocelli has now stepped back from the proposed performance.

[CtH: I’m sorry to hear he’s decided to be a spineless wimp. It only emboldens these leftist bullies to keep on doing this garbage.]

The Art Of Mackin’ — Author FREAKS When Tucker Carlson Reads Passages From His Own Book
Nasheed — who writes on a variety of subjects including picking up chicks and the subversive nature of systemic racism — tweeted that Trump’s nominees include members of “a white supremacists [sic] sect that literally throw up Nazi salutes.”

I SAW THIS LAST NIGHT. CARLSON DESCRIBED HOW THIS RACE-HUSTLING SCUM WROTE ABOUT TELLING WOMEN ANYTHING IN ORDER TO CON THEM INTO LAYING DOWN AND SPREADING THEIR LEGS. HE ALSO USED THE TERM ‘ALT-RIGHT’ AT LEAST 20 TIMES DURING THE INTERVIEW. APPARENTLY HE HAS TO DEPEND ON HIS TALKING POINTS LIKE MOST LEFTARDS DO.  HE ALSO CLAIMED HIS SEDUCTION TIPS WERE “COMEDIC.” HE REITERATED THAT AT LEAST 5 TIMES.

“You say, ‘the number one lame thing men say to get sex? I love you.’ You describe this as the ‘bold lie approach,’” he continued. “And then you say this, ‘if a woman isn’t ready for sex you 1) question her maturity 2) minimize the significance of sex and 3) tell her what you want to hear.”

Christians Slam ‘Blasphemous’ Ornament Featuring Two Gay ‘Josephs’

THE DEMOCRATS CAN’T ACCEPT THAT THEY WERE SOUNDLY DEFEATED, IN PART, BECAUSE WHITE CHRISTIANS ARE SICK OF HAVING THIS KIND OF CRAP SHOVED IN OUR FACE AT EVERY TURN.
The ornaments either had two gay Josephs or two lesbian Marys kneeling before baby Jesus.
‘They blasphemously portray the Lord Jesus being parented by a homosexual couple. What depths will the LGBT lobby stoop to in order to try and normalise their behaviour?” Andrea Williams, chief executive of Christian Concern, a group that fights for the return of Christianity to the United Kingdom, said in the statement.

[CtH: So much for all that “tolerance” and “respect for others’ traditions” that they talk about so sanctimoniously.]

Students of Color Conference turns into ‘oppression Olympics,’ leads to fights, canceled sessions
THIS WAS PREDICTABLE… THERE WERE NO WHITE PEOPLE INVITED TO SCREAM AT, SO THEY TURNED ON EACH OTHER

The crux of the debate centered around the conference theme: “Fighting Anti-Blackness.” Apparently it was not communicated to students that the conference would have a particular theme this year. At the event, held at UC Irvine, students of different minority groups began arguing when it became known that the conference would focus almost exclusively on discrimination against the African American community.

Trump team asks State Dept. what it spends on international environmental efforts
BILLIONS IN TAXPAYER MONEY HAS ALREADY BEEN THROWN AT THIRD WORLD TINPOTS TO “FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE’ WHEN, IN REALITY, THAT MONEY GOES INTO NUMBERED ACCOUNTS FOR THE DICTATORS. I HOPE TRUMP STOPS FUNDING THE U.N. COMPLETELY.

As part of the Paris climate agreement reached a year ago, the United States pledged to donate $3 billion over four years to the Green Climate Fund, a multinational fund aimed at helping poor nations adapt to the most severe climate impacts and develop renewable sources of energy. So far, the administration has provided $500 million to the fund.

YOU THINK YOU’VE SEEN THIS, BUT YOU HAVEN’T. IT IS AN EDIT OF THE ORIGINAL CELEBRITY WHINE-A-THON INTO A POSITIVE TRUMP MESSAGE.

A VIDEO REVIEW OF LAST NIGHT’S CIRCUS

Full confession: I was up late trying to watch the canine and equine performance and didn’t quite make it. There’s so much to cover I’m going to break it into two parts. Most of you have seen some or all of the debate, others may have a life and actually missed it. This is the entire nearly three hour show for the truly masochistic and a lot of short segments with highlights broken down into very short soundbites. If you only have a short time to browse I urge you to watch the exchange between The Donald and Carly Fiorina, who was absolutely amazing. Her comment on Iran and Planned Parenthood was the absolute best.

CPAC 2015 : A REVIEW

In case you were interested in anything,here’s some of the video and related commentary.

Cruz: “The Next 20 Months Are Going to Be Very Dangerous”

You know, prior presidents have been repudiated [and] they’ve reacted with contrition. [P]resident Obama, instead, reacted with anger and defiance.”

“I believe the next 20 months we are going to see a degree of lawlessness that will exceed anything we’ve seen in the previous six years,” he continued. “I think we’re going to see executive order after executive order. I think we’re going to see the abuse of regulations in a way that crushes small businesses, destroys jobs. I think we are going to see the continued weaponization of the IRS in the federal government, and it is going to be dangerous.”

Scott Walker Is Trying to Woo CPAC. And It’s Working.
http://cdn-media.nationaljournal.com/?controllerName=image&action=get&id=44859&format=nj2013_10_columns
This is from National Journal,so take it for what it is.

The Wisconsin governor continued his pivot toward the right in his CPAC speech Thursday, and the crowd loved it.
“Here in America there is a reason we celebrate the Fourth of July and not April 15th,” Walker said. “Because in America, we celebrate our independence from the government, not our dependence on it.”

Walker got an unexpected opportunity to flex his legendary anti-union muscles on stage when protesters interrupted his speech by shouting from the crowd.

“Those voices cannot drown out the millions of Americans who want us to stand up for the hardworking taxpayers,” Walker said to the protesters.

Eight minutes about a pencil

Mike Rowe with pencil

From Mike Rowe’s Facebook page:

Kyle Smith writes…

Howard Dean recently criticized Gov Scott Walker for never finishing college, stating that he was “unknowledgeable.” What would your response be on college as a requirement for elected office?

Hi Kyle

Back in 1990, The QVC Cable Shopping Channel was conducting a national talent search. I had no qualifications to speak of, but I needed a job, and thought TV might be a fun way to pay the bills. So I showed up at The Marriott in downtown Baltimore with a few hundred other hopefuls, and waited for a chance to audition. When it was my turn, the elevator took me to the top floor, where a man no expression led me into a suite and asked me to take a seat behind a large desk. Across from the desk, there was a camera on a tripod. On the desk was a digital timer with an LED display. I took a seat as the man clipped a microphone on my shirt and explained the situation.

“The purpose of this audition is to see if you can talk for eight minutes without stuttering, blathering, passing out, or throwing up. Any questions?”

“What would you like me to talk about?” I asked.

The man pulled a pencil from behind his ear and rolled it across the desk. “Talk to me about that pencil. Sell it. Make me want it. But be yourself. If you can do that for eight minutes, the job is yours. OK?”

I looked at the pencil. It was yellow. It had a point on one end, and an eraser on the other. On the side were the words, Dixon Ticonderoga Number 2 SOFT.

“OK,” I said.

The man set the timer to 8:00, and walked behind the tripod. He pressed a button and a red light appeared on the camera. He pressed another button and the timer began to count backwards. “Action,” he said. I picked up the pencil and started talking.

“Hi there. My name’s Mike Rowe, and I only have eight minutes to tell you why this is finest pencil on Planet Earth. So let’s get right to it.”

I opened the desk drawer and found a piece of hotel stationery, right where I hoped it would be. I picked up the pencil and wrote the word QUALITY in capital letters. I held the paper toward the camera.

“As you can plainly see, The #2 Dixon Ticonderoga leaves a bold, unmistakable line, far superior to the thin and wispy wake left by the #3, or the fat, sloppy skid mark of the unwieldy #1. Best of all, the Ticonderoga is not filled with actual lead, but ‘madagascar graphite,’ a far safer alternative for anyone who likes to chew on their writing implements.”

To underscore the claim, I licked the point. I then discussed the many advantages of the Ticonderoga’s color.

“A vibrant yellow, perfectly suited for an object that needs to stand out from the clutter of a desk drawer.”

I commented on the comfort of its design.

“Unlike those completely round pencils that press hard into the web of your hand, the Ticonderoga’s circumference is comprised of eight gently plained surfaces, which dramatically reduce fatigue, and make writing for extended periods an absolute delight.”

I pointed out the “enhanced eraser,” which was “guaranteed to still be there – even when the pencil was sharpened down to an unusable nub.”

I opined about handmade craftsmanship and American made quality. I talked about the feel of real wood.

“In a world overrun with plastic and high tech gadgets, isn’t it comforting to know that some things haven’t evolved into something shiny and gleaming and completely unrecognizable?’”

After all that, there was still five minutes on the timer. So I shifted gears and considered the pencil’s impact on Western Civilization. I spoke of Picasso and Van Gogh, and their hundreds of priceless drawings – all done in pencil. I talked about Einstein and Hawking, and their many complicated theories and theorems – all done in pencil.

“Pen and ink are fine for memorializing contracts,” I said, “but real progress relies on the ability to erase and start anew. Archimedes said he could move the world with a lever long enough, but when it came to proving it, he needed a pencil to make the point.”

With three minutes remaining, I moved on to some personal recollections about the role of pencils in my own life. My first legible signature, my first book report, my first crossword puzzle, and of course, my first love letter. I may have even worked up a tear as I recalled the innocence of my youth, scribbled out on a piece of looseleaf with all the hope and passion a desperate 6th grader could muster… courtesy of a #2 pencil.

With :30 seconds left on the timer, I looked fondly at the Dixon Ticonderoga, and sat silently for five seconds. Then I wrapped it up.

“We call it a pencil, because all things need a name. But today, let’s call it what it really is. A time machine. A match maker. A magic wand. And let’s say it can all be yours…for just 99 cents.”

The timer read 0:00. The man walked back to the desk. He took the pencil and wrote “YOU’RE HIRED” on the stationery, and few days later, I moved to West Chester, PA. And a few days after that, I was on live television, face to face with the never-ending parade of trinkets and chotchkies that comprise QVC’s overnight inventory.

I spent three months on the graveyard shift, five nights a week. Technically, this was my training period, which was curious, given the conspicuous absence of supervision, or anything that could be confused with actual instruction. Every few minutes a stagehand would bring me another mysterious “must have item,” which I’d blather about nonsensically until it was whisked away and replaced with something no less baffling. In this way, I slowly uncovered the mysteries of my job, and forged a tenuous relationship with an audience of chronic insomniacs and narcoleptic lonely hearts. It was a crucible of confusion and ambiguity, and in hindsight, the best training I ever had.

Which brings me to the point of your question, Kyle.

I don’t agree with Howard Dean – not at all.

Here’s what I didn’t understand 25 years ago. QVC had a serious recruiting problem. Qualified candidates were applying in droves, but failing miserably on the air. Polished salespeople with proven track records were awkward on TV. Professional actors with extensive credits couldn’t be themselves on camera. And seasoned hosts who understood live television had no experience hawking products. So eventually, QVC hit the reset button. They stopped looking for “qualified” people, and started looking for anyone who could talk about a pencil for eight minutes.

QVC had confused qualifications with competency.

Perhaps America has done something similar?

Look at how we hire help – it’s not so different than how we elect leaders. We search for work ethic on resumes. We look for intelligence in test scores. We search for character in references. And of course, we look at a four-year diploma as though it might actually tell us something about common sense and leadership.

Obviously, we need a bit more from our elected officials than the instincts of a home shopping host, but the business of determining what those “qualifications” are is completely up to us. We get to decide what matters most. We get to decide if a college degree or military service is somehow determinative. We get to decide if Howard Dean is correct.

Anyone familiar with my foundation knows my position. I think a trillion dollars of student loans and a massive skills gap are precisely what happens to a society that actively promotes one form of education as the best course for the most people. I think the stigmas and stereotypes that keep so many people from pursuing a truly useful skill begin with the mistaken belief that a four-year degree is somehow superior to all other forms of learning. And I think that making elected office contingent on a college degree is maybe the worst idea I’ve ever heard.

But of course, Howard Dean is not the real problem. He’s just one guy. And he’s absolutely right when he says that many others will judge Scott Walker for not finishing college. That’s the real problem.

However – when Howard Dean called the Governor “unknowledgeable,” he rolled out more than a stereotype. He rolled a pencil across the desk, and gave Scott Walker eight minutes to knock it out of the park.

It’ll be fun to see if he does.

MEDIA FAIL: The Scott Walker College Exposé

The same people going after Walker now let Obama completely off the hook.

2015_02 College records MEDIA FAIL

The college careers of presidential candidates were staples during the 2000 and 2004 elections. Then in 2008, even as they were mocking Sarah Palin’s academic career, the media gave Obama a total pass.

And in 2012, when it was clear that Mitt Romney had far superior academic credentials than Barack Obama, the media just waved their royal hands over the issue of academics, declared it a non-issue, and focused on dog crates on the top of the car and binders full of women.

The Walker Probe has now delved deeply (2,000 words worth) into the Big Mystery of why Scott dropped out before graduating. (He got a good job offer and took it.)

Somehow, though, the media never pestered Obama about why he went to Occidental College in Los Angeles for two years after graduating from a highly respected private school in Hawaii. Could it be that his high school grades were lousy and he had to go to a nothing much school to get them up before he could transfer to Columbia in 1981?

That would be my guess. But we can’t really know, can we, seeing as Mr. Transparency on His High Moral Horse had his academic records sealed.

The Walker probe is also hot on the trail of such uber important scandals as his regular tardiness to French class and his reluctance to get into arguments with the liberals in his politics classes. Yet it was of no interest to this same media that none of the 400 people in Obama’s class at Columbia remembered him. At all.

Meanwhile, in Leftie Hypocrisy Land …

Suddenly the Left cares about a potential president’s academic credentials

Funny how they kept bleating that Barack Obama was the Smartest Man Evah, without once blinking an eyelid over the fact that Obama had all his academic records sealed.  We have NO evidence that he was ever enrolled at any of the three colleges he claims he attended, much less what courses he took or what grades he earned.

But George Bush? “OMG he only got C’s!”  And Sarah Palin? “OMG she went to a college in fly-over country!” Now it’s Governor Scott Walker, a man with a proven record of success that far outstrips any credentials Barack Obama had before he ran for president … suddenly he’s unfit because he didn’t graduate from college.  What a bunch of hypocrites!

Greta Van Susteren – February 12 at 9:38pm

Have you seen the media reports about Governor Scott Walker not finishing college? Many in the media are falling all over themselves like it is the Pentagon papers! I am not telling you to vote for or against Gov Walker should he run for President …but I am saying this: I know a lot of very very smart people who never went to college and I know a bunch of big dummies who did go to college (and graduated.) I don’t know about you, but I sure don’t measure intelligence by college degrees.

Greta’s Facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/gretawire?fref=nf

I was born literally across the street from Cornell University and have lived in or near its hometown of Ithaca, New York, for all of my sixty years. I know from a great deal of personal experience that having a college degree is no guarantee of intelligence, competence, or common sense. If you need more than just my word on this …

On Wisconsin!

From The Washington Times:

National parks facing federal furlough orders may be shutting down around the nation, but not so in Wisconsin.

Republican Governor Scott Walker said he’s not closing the federal lands to visitors, in blatant defiance of the National Park Service’s demand, Breitbart.com reported. The federal agency had specifically ordered park officials in Wisconsin to close doors on Kettle Moraine, Devil’s Lake and Interstate parks, as well as sections of Horicon Marsh — sections that were owned by the state, no less — but Wisconsin authorities shunned the demand.

The state Department of Natural Resources said most of the Wisconsin’s parks identified by the federal agency for closure get most of their money from local taxpayers, not federal coffers. Park authorities said they’re not complying with the federal order.

Wisconsin DNR said in a statement: “All state parks, trails and other recreational properties [are] open and not affected by the federal government’s budget problems.” (continue reading)

How much you wanna bet he hasn’t signed up for Obamacare either?
