Stilton’s Seal of Approval

2018_07 11 Seals of Approval by Stilton

Per the cartoon above, we do expect Brett Kavanaugh to be dragged through Hell and high water before his eventual confirmation as a Supreme Court Justice.

But our real purpose in combining these two stories is to celebrate these two very different but deeply inspiring occurrences. The amazing rescue of a boys soccer team from a nightmarish, water-filled cave renews our hope for mankind in general. Support came from around the world to save these young lives, and the courage and sacrifice of those involved is humbling and awe-inspiring. Continue reading

Hysterical Hysteria

You knew it was coming. Democrats are as predictable as night following day. As soon as Justice Kennedy announced his retirement, the attack machine mobilized against the president’s pick as a successor, no matter who it was.

Trump Nominates Brett Kavanaugh to SCOTUS

Schumer, Leftists Melt Down Over Trump’s SCOTUS Pick ‘Kavanaugh Will Lead to the Deaths of Countless Women

Donald Trump’s decision to nominate a reactionary ideologue like Brett Kavanaugh and shift the balance of the U.S. Supreme Court even further right represents a generational assault on justice, freedom, and our country’s core democratic values.

“If Brett Kavanaugh survives the confirmation process, he will rapidly advance a fringe right agenda on the court that will accelerate plutocratic control of our economy and politics, actively undermine the steps our country must take towards greater racial equity, and directly lead to the deaths of countless women with the dismantling of abortion rights.

Let the Games Begin

The left has been screaming incoherently for the last month about (gasp) separating children from the adults who attempt to sneak into our country illegally to climb on the gravy train. Keep in mind, they couldn’t care less about these children. Never did. It’s just a convenient excuse to hammer the president as an issue for the midterms because they have nothing to offer except hate.

But that issue is about to go on the back burner. Trump, ever the showman with a flair for the dramatic, will announce his pick to replace Kennedy on Monday evening. The left has their next round of attacks pre-prepared. It’s down to about four and it appears to be down to Kethledge and Kavanaugh. Kethledge has been endorsed by Ted Cruz and is said to be soft on immigration. Continue reading

Trump’s Short List

2018_06 29 Call them racists by Gorrell

The anti-Trump SCOTUS talking points are out. All his nominees are “racist, white men who defend the Ku Klux Klan.” I’m sure that makes a ton of sense, seeing as his short list includes:

  • Two women.
  • One first generation Indian-American.
  • One man who studied in Mexico and is fluent in Spanish, who worked at a legal aid clinic representing poor Spanish-speaking immigrants, and who has been active in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.
  • And, one man who wrote in a legal opinion that “being called the n-word by a supervisor … suffices by itself to establish a racially hostile work environment.”

Justice Kennedy Retiring

Just this morning Democrats were whining about how McConnell “stole” the chance for Obama to permanently tilt the court far left. Kennedy was the deciding vote two days ago ruling that President Trump has the authority to ban travel from certain countries. Getting another Justice of Gorsuch’s caliber would send them into apoplexy. Gonna be a hot summer.


Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announced he will be retiring from the bench at the end of July.

They’ll Never Get It

My boycott of network television has been ongoing for many years. It still is. But I took the news of the reboot of ‘Roseanne’ with interest. It was a complete smash with more than 18 million viewers and easily beat the Stormy Daniels porn-a-thon. It came as a shock to many Hollywood types, but then so did Hillary getting crushed by Donald Trump. Somewhere deep in the bowels of some studio in La La Land some big shots may yet get a clue that audiences are sick and tired of the constant conservative bashing in the media today.
Roseanne has been an outspoken supporter of the president, feelings that I doubt very much are shared by anybody else on the show. All I can think of is John Goodman, her TV husband, mocking Linda Tripp on SNL.

Roseanne Ratings Blowout! Premiere Is Top Comedy in 4 Years – Trumps Sunday’s Stormy interview in Adult Demo
The relaunch was the most watched comedy in 4 years and even beat the Stormy Daniels Sunday “60 Minutes” video in the adult demo.

Trump Calls Roseanne After Her ‘Pro-Trump’ Show’s ‘Huge’ Ratings

According to The New York Times, Trump called the 65-year-old star and former presidential candidate (remember this?) on Wednesday to thank her for breaking ranks with her Hollywood peers and openly supporting him, which she’s done personally and her character will now be doing weekly on her show. A man who fully understands the significance of ratings, Trump congratulated her for its 18.2 million viewers. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the call to the press Wednesday.

Movie theaters cash in as Hollywood turns to God
Religion is reclaiming cinema for sacred purposes at a rate never seen in history, with faith-based movies exploding from an obscure cottage industry last century into a multi-billion-dollar business.
“You can add faith-based movies to the list of genres that you can count on as box office, as much as you can count on any genre. But these movies have to come from an authentic place,” comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian told AFP.
“You can’t just suddenly have executives in board rooms saying, ‘Faith-based movies are big right now so let’s do one.’ You have to come from an authentic place. Those in the faith-based community will know if it’s not the real deal.”

Obama Loyalist Susan Rice Joins Netflix Board of Directors
THE OBAMAS ARE CURRENTLY IN NEGOTIATIONS WITH NETFLIX FOR THEIR OWN SERIES.
ANYTHING THEY GET INVOLVED WITH IS RIGGED.
Last year, Rice admitted to unmasking President Trump’s transition team after previously denying any involvement, prompting her to be interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee, while it was reported that Rice had ordered the surveillance of President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Following the September 11, 2012, Benghazi terror attacks, Rice was also the “driving force behind a misinformation campaign.”

U.S. District Judge Nominated by Barack Obama Orders Florida Governor to Restore Voting Rights to Convicted Felons
Another day, another power grab from the bench.
On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Mark Walker ordered Florida Governor Rick Scott and the Cabinet to restore voting rights to felons.
GERRYMANDERING, FELONS VOTING, BALLOT BOX STUFFING… WIN NO MATTER WHAT THEY HAVE TO DO TO GET TRUMP
A spokesman for Scott issued a statement that defended the current system.
“Officials elected by Floridians, not judges, have the authority to determine Florida’s clemency process for convicted felons,” spokesman John Tupps said. “This is outlined in Florida’s Constitution and has been in place for more than a century and under multiple gubernatorial administrations.”

Study: Only 10% of D.C. ‘March for Our Lives’ Protesters Were Teenagers
Contrary to what’s been reported in many media accounts, the D.C. March for Our Lives crowd was not primarily made up of teenagers. Only about 10 percent of the participants were under 18. The average age of the adults in the crowd was just under 49 years old, which is older than participants at the other marches I’ve surveyed but similar to the age of the average participant at the Million Moms March in 2000, which was also about gun control.
http://www.breitbart.com/2nd-amendment/2018/03/28/study-10-d-c-march-lives-protesters-teenagers/

I’M SHOCKED!
Survey: 89% at March For Our Lives voted for Hillary, fewer than half were there because of gun control
In fact, not only were the marchers not young, they were unusually old with an average just short of 49, which Fisher claims is higher than the average at most rallies she’s measured. The marchers were also overwhelmingly female at 70 percent and well educated, with 72 percent having a B.A. It was, in other words, on average a march by middle-aged professional women. That’s an important voter bloc but not a mirror held up to the electorate’s face

Maxine Waters Implies Her Calls For Impeachment Are Irresponsible
PELOSI MUST HAVE TOLD HER TO SHUT THE HELL UP
MSNBC’s Ari Melber played a clip of Rep. Waters from 1998 claiming that Republicans were seeking to impeach then-president Bill Clinton over political disagreements.
“I am greatly disappointed in the raw, unmasked, unbridled hatred, and meanness that drives this impeachment coup d’etat,” Waters said at the time. “My Republican friends, what you do here today will long be remembered and recorded in history as one of the most despicable actions ever taken by the Congress of the United States of America.”

Judge cites LePage’s stay at Trump hotel in ruling that lawsuit against president can proceed

He also points to the governor’s subsequent visit with the president in finding that Maryland and the District of Columbia have standing to claim that Trump is violating the Constitution by mixing business interests with his work as president.
JUST A WILD GUESS…THEY’RE TRYING TO LAY THE GROUNDWORK FOR IMPEACHMENT WHEN THEY TAKE BACK THE MAJORITY IN NOVEMBER
“Plaintiffs have sufficiently alleged that the President is violating the Foreign and Domestic Emoluments Clauses of the Constitution by reason of his involvement with and receipt of benefits from the Trump International Hotel and its appurtenances in Washington, D.C., as well as the operations of the Trump Organization with respect to the same,” Messitte wrote in his 47-page opinion. As supporting evidence, the judge singles out LePage’s visits to the hotel.

SCOTUS Considers Whether Maryland Dems Used Gerrymandering to Their Advantage
SCOTUS HAS NEVER OVERTURNED A GERRYMANDERING CASE.
THE DEMOCRATS INTEND TO LITERALLY STEAL THIS ELECTION.
If the trend continues, 2020 “could be a wave election for Democrats,” according to Michael Li, a redistricting expert at the Brennan Center in New York.
Gerrymandering has also been a hot topic in the state of Pennsylvania this year, where the redistricting maps again appear to favor Democrats. The state Supreme Court drew the new maps and, despite an emergency appeal from Republicans, who claimed the court overstepped its authority, the maps were upheld by the Supreme Court.

Some Food for Thought

The Supreme Court Issues Its Decision On Trump’s DACA Appeal

In an extraordinary procedural move, the government appealed directly to the Supreme Court. Under normal procedure, the government would challenge Alsup’s order at the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a principle antagonist to Trump’s ambitions throughout his presidency. Solicitor General Noel Francisco, the government’s Supreme Court lawyer, argued the case required the tribunal’s urgent attention, as Alsup’s decision “requires the government to sanction indefinitely an ongoing violation of federal law being committed by nearly 700,000 aliens.”
The justices rarely grant such requests.

Terry McAuliffe: ‘Who Better To Take On Trump Than Me?’

THIS IS THE MOST VICIOUS PUNK IN POLITICS
Of course, we’re barely into Year 2 of President Trump, but that doesn’t mean Democrats aren’t jockeying right now to get into position to run in 2020. And as dirty as Hillay and Bill are, McAuliffe is that times 10 — or 1,000. Plus, all the filthy Clinton leeches are without a host, now that Hillary has lost for a second time and vows not to run again.

If unions lose the Janus case, how will they survive? Best bet is to reinvent themselves as professional associations
IN WISCONSIN, UNIONS AND DEMOCRATS (REDUNDANT) POURED MORE THAN 10 MILLION DOLLARS INTO AN EFFORT TO GET RID OF GOVERNOR WALKER AND THE REPUBLICAN MAJORITY. THEY LOST. UNIONS NOW CANNOT COMPEL ANY MEMBER TO PAY DUES. THEIR CASH FLOW CRATERED.
There’s much more than free speech at stake here, though. If the court sides with Janus, unions across the country stand to lose millions of dollars a year in guaranteed revenue — potentially enough to cripple their operations. Nobody would be hit harder than the nation’s two largest teachers’ unions — including the National Education Association, the largest public sector union in the country.

Drugs suspect on toilet strike for 38 days ‘would rather die than take a poo’
I DON’T THINK IT’S PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE TO GO THAT LONG WITHOUT GOING
A suspected drug dealer on a record-breaking toilet strike would rather die than take a poo, his lawyer has said. Lamarr Chambers, 24, has now spent 38 days in police custody after Essex Police arrested and detained him on January 17.
Officers believe he swallowed some of the drugs before his arrest in Harlow, Essex, and they have been patiently waiting for him to finally go ever since.

Michelle Obama’s upcoming memoir replicates Obama’s road to power to a T
As Lifson notes, the Democrats are in bad shape, at least if they run on policies. But if they can galvanize the black vote, which is what they did with Obama, they are in a position to win. They are sure they can’t win if they don’t. What would be more logical than for Michelle Obama to write an identity politics book, in first person, Oprah-style, as a backdrop “narrative” to galvanize those voters? The Obamas always were about “narrative” as a means of concealing their policy objectives by promoting their personas. Obama’s “mind-meld,” and right hand man, after all, was fiction writer and major Ben Rhodes. Ol’ Ben knew more than anyone about creating “narratives.”

It’s Not About Saving Lives: Democratic Senator Says Gun Debate Will Help His Party In Midterms
Did anyone catch Sen. Bill Nelson’s (D-FL) rather gratuitous swipe at Gov. Rick Scott on Wednesday? CNN held a town hall event in Sunrise, Florida hosted by Jake Tapper, where National Rifle Association Dana Loesch and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) literally ventured into the lion’s den. Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) also participated. It was a two-hour bashing of Rubio, the NRA, Loesch, every law-abiding gun owner, and every supporter of the Second Amendment. It was show trial, a North Korean kangaroo court that resembled something out of the two minutes of hate from Orwell’s 1984.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders cops to making a rare mistake and says Trump has not confirmed for WHCD yet – but WILL go to Gridiron
The White House told DailyMail.com Monday that President Trump would attend the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but then walked it back
The president will, however, attend this year’s white-tie Gridiron dinner, an event also hosted by Washington journalists
Trump skipped both the Gridiron and the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner last year as he warred with the so-called ‘fake news’
The president’s willingness to go to the Gridiron suggests he may be open to attending the White House Correspondents’ Dinner as well
President Obama said a President Trump would bring ‘change’ to the White House, and then this image flashed to the audience of the 2011 White House Correspondents’ Dinner

As country listens to Florida teens, Black Lives Matter youths feel ignored
THIS IS THE CRAP IN THE PAPERS I DELIVER EVERY DAY.
The young people of Black Lives Matter are hurt. And they have every right to be.
When they were protesting in the streets of cities across America, much of the country didn’t bother to listen to their message. They were not embraced by the mainstream for their bravery, their determination or resolve to bring attention to reckless police killings that disproportionately impact young African-Americans.
In a tweet last week, Oprah Winfrey said the inspiring youths in Florida reminded her of the “Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.” She pledged to match George and Amal Clooney’s $500,000 donation to the youths’ March for Our Lives planned for March 24.

U.S. Army Awards ‘Heroism Medals’ to 3 JROTC Students Killed in Florida High School Shooting
THESE YOUNG PEOPLE SHOWED MORE GUTS THAN THE COWARDLY COPS WHO CRINGED OUTSIDE WHILE INNOCENTS WERE BEING SLAUGHTERED
The U.S. Army announced Tuesday that Alaina Petty, Martin Duque, and Peter Wang—who were all students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and also served as cadets in the school’s JROTC program—would receive JROTC Heroism Medals for their acts of bravery during Wednesday’s shooting.
Army spokesman Michael Maddox said that Petty’s family had been presented with the award at her funeral Monday, and Wang’s family received the award during his funeral service Tuesday. Duque’s family will accept the medal at his funeral service Saturday.

Did the PA Supreme Court Just Make it Easier for Dems to Win in the Midterms?
An important swing state may have just swung in Democrats’ favor. Although Republicans hold 13 House seats in Pennsylvania to Democrats’ five, a new ruling from the state supreme court appears to give the Democrats a favorable new congressional map.

Suspected poacher killed, eaten by pack of lions
A suspected poacher was fatally mauled and eaten by a pack of lions near a national park in South Africa, leaving behind just the man’s “head and some remains,” police said.
A police spokesman in Limpopo told AFP that a loaded hunting rifle was found near the man’s body early Saturday at a private game park in Hoedspruit, west of Kruger National Park, which contains large numbers of the Big 5 game species — lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant and buffalo.
“It seems the victim was poaching in the game park when he was attacked and killed by lions,” Limpopo police spokesman Moatshe Ngoepe told AFP. “They ate his body, nearly all of it, and just left
THE POACHER WAS ACCOMPANIED BY AN ILLEGAL FUR BUYER FROM EASTERN EUROPE. THE POACHER WAS EATEN BY THE FEMALE LION. THE CZECH WAS IN THE MALE.
THAT WAS LAME…SO WHAT? GET OVER IT
