Not Dreamers

Suspect Is Linked To THIRD Murder After A Severed Head With A Chilling Note Is Found Near A Texas Walking Trail

Are these criminals illegal thugs? Or were they born in the USA via chain migration? In any event, they make an excellent case for strict immigration reform because we have enough home-grown criminals and don't need to import more.

Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... two Chinese mandarin cats on Chinese New Year's day.

What, it's the Year of the Dog, you say?

Good point. This is for you:

Great, just when I got used to writing Year of the Rooster on my checks ;)

Happy Friday, everybody.

New JournOlist?

Sharyl Attkisson Explains The Origins Of The 2016 'Fake News' Narrative In TedX Talk

"Attkisson pointed out that "fake news" in the form of tabloid journalism and false media narratives has always been around under different names. But she noticed that in 2016, there seemed to be a concerted effort by the MSM to focus America's attention on the idea of "fake news" in conservative media."

I agree. If you look back, you'll find this narrative building collusion between journalists and other leftists has been going on long before it was called "fake news."

Remember The JournOlist from 2010? It exposed "journalists" coordinating articles with each other to cover up obama scandals in order to get him re-elected. Two names on the JournOlist, Ben Smith and David Corn, were also first to publish the fake Steele dossier at BuzzFeed & Mother Jones. Sounds like they're still colluding.

Just as a rose by any other name smells as sweet, a scandalous agenda-driven attempt by "journalists" to control the views of the citizenry, smells like a cesspool no matter what you call it.

Team USA Skater's Tweet Draws Mixed Reactions After Coin Toss Decides Olympic Flagbearer

I never even heard of a coin toss being a dishonorable thing until today. I will, however, always remember Shani "Sore Loser" Davis.

Whap! Rake!

This Kurt Schlichter article is short, and a real hoot to boot...

With Enemies Like This, Donald Trump Doesn't Need Friends

"Whap! That's the sound of the democrats stepping on another rake."

Universal Smoke

Say it ain't so, Uncle Joe...

Biden Calls Trump 'A Joke,' Says He's 'Doing Everything Putin Ever Wanted'

Are we living in the same world or is there some special parallel universe for democrats?

-Wasn't it obama who told then Russian President Medvedev ON A LIVE MICROPHONE that he would have "more flexibility" to negotiate on missile defense afterthe Nov 2012 election?

-Wasn't it Hillary and the Clinton Foundation implicated in the Uranium One deal that allowed the Russians to have control of 20% of the world's uranium supply?

Wait, this behavior isn't new. Let's go back in time and begin with FDR, Harry Hopkins, Alger Hiss and the Venona Intercepts:

It’s The Democrats Who Collude With The Russians

So democrats, it is YOU that have much to answer for in your long history of Russian collusion... well, in this world.

Matter Matters

From Thomas Lifson at The American Thinker comes this eye-opening piece:

Parents Of Slain Pizza Hut Robber Angry That Victim Used A Gun Against Him

As a parent myself, I can't imagine a greater nightmare than losing a child, but these parents have to understand that their loss was the direct result of very bad judgement on their son's part.

To quote Mr. Lifson, "I may be an extremist, but it seems to me that if one decides to commit a crime, the victims should have more rights than the perpetrator, especially the right to defend themselves from the presumption of violence that accompanies a robbery, home invasion, or other property crime."

I agree.

Poor Little Thing

[click to enlarge]

This winter we noticed that there was a lounge of lizards living in our fireplace. They drove our indoor cat crazy and she'd hunt for them day and night, but they were sheltered behind the glass fireplace doors and were able to torment her with impunity.

Then one day we stopped seeing them and we wondered what happened to the little dears.

Well, today I was cleaning around the fireplace in preparation for a visit by my in-laws (yes, deep, deep cleaning) and I found this little brown anole (Anolis sagrei) skeleton behind a stack of books.

One mystery solved.

Enough excitement, now it's back to the drudgery of cleaning :(

Go Float Yourself

When a non-apology about a train wreck becomes a train wreck...

Stephen King Apologizes For Tweet Mocking Republicans Involved In Train Wreck

I was a faithful reader of King's books until "Nightmares And Dreamscapes" (2009). I got to the story about the chattering teeth, and haven't read a single one of his books since. I stopped because I felt he had lost his writer's touch. Now I realize he has also lost his mind.

Release the memo already so we can get on to the rest of the swamp draining work that needs to done.

Embarrassment For NBC News After Lester Holt Apparently Falls For North Korean Propaganda

I think NBC should use footage from the movie "Team America" instead of their recent North Korean coverage. The nonsense they're peddling about North Korea is not true, but Team America is at least way funnier.

John Coleman 1934 - 2018

RIP: Weather Channel Founder John Coleman Dies – Called ‘Global Warming’ A ‘Hoax’

Here are a few of his quotes:

"A ‘total distortion of the data and agenda driven, destructive episode of bad science gone berserk’"

"When the temperature data could no longer be bent to support global warming, they switched to climate change and now blame every weather and climate event on CO2 despite the hard, cold fact that the “radiative forcing” theory they built their claims on has totally failed to verify.'"

"The current bad science is all based on a theory that the increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere from the exhaust of the burning of fossil fuels leads to a dramatic increase in “the greenhouse effect” causing temperatures to skyrocket uncontrollably. This theory has failed to verify and is obviously dead wrong. But the politically funded and agenda driven scientists who have built their careers on this theory and live well on the 2.6 billion dollars of year of Federal grants for global warming/climate change research cling to this theory and bend the data spread to support the glorified claims in their reports and papers."

“I’m just a dumb old skeptic — a denier as they call me — who ought to be jailed or put to death,” he says. “I understand how they feel. But you know something? I know I’m right. So I don’t care.”

Some of us cared, Mr. Coleman, RIP and Godspeed.

OUCH Indeed

OUCH! Dan Bongino’s Smackdown Of Dem Priorities Is Going To Leave A BIG Mark

Here’s everything you need to know about Democrats, they call Americans “deplorables” and illegal immigrants “dreamers.” - Dan Bongino

Amen to that, Mr. Bongino.

Nobody wants to see a government shutdown, but giving in to democrat demands over DACA would be a huge mistake.

Let's let them dig in their heels and we'll all see just how much of our bloated government is not essential.

It would be a big morale booster if President Trump would personally fund the cost of the Armed Forces Network tonight so that the troops could watch the NFL playoffs, but alas, President Trump doesn't read The BLOG.

Immigration Blues

Minnesota Woman Strikes St. Catherine University

Apparently a “Minnesota woman” went on an arson rampage at St. Kate’s this past Wednesday (Truza Jamal Hassan — a 19-year-old former student) set eight fires in seven buildings across the campus.

Oh my word, it must be the work of one of those extremist Lutheran Norwegian malcontents immigrating into our country. They can be so stubborn if they don't get their way /sarcasm off.

... a cat covered in post-it notes.

One of my resolutions for 2018 is to stop writing on post-it notes all the time. If there's something worthwhile to note, I'll write it in my daytimer.

Yeah. That's what I tell myself.

Happy Friday everybody.

New Hepatitis A Scare Comes To Utah County On Heels Of Exposures At Salt Lake County 7-Eleven

I wonder if the recent Hepatitis A scares have anything to do with this...

Immigration Agents Descend On Dozens Of 7-ELEVEN Stores

I know that correlation does not imply causation, but it's so very coincidental that these two events are occurring almost simultaneously.

Delaying immigration reform is like closing the well after a child drowns in it. After we become a third world country, reform will be too late.

Brown Ales May Be Unfashionable, But The Style Is Timeless

I gave up drinking beer years ago because of the carbs, but back then my tastes ran towards Heineken and Moosehead.

This article has made me rethink the brownies now. I'm game for an occasional taste test. Are you?

The Raccoon Saga

A while back I saw what I thought to be was our Main Coon cat, Shoshin,on the back deck, but when a baby raccoon followed her, I knew immediately that it wasn't our cat. I watched the duo go from the deck and go around the pool enclosure. I put out some saltines for them and they were gone the next day. I don't know who ate them, but I have a few suspects.

END STORY... not.

Yesterday, I saw two baby raccoons run across the back deck and I was amazed. Then a third one came running and then a fourth! I was speechless at this point and then a firth one came running up the deck and running up our huge oak tree. I watched them for hours until my husband came home and put a bowl of cat food up in the crook of the tree where they were hiding. For the rest of the evening, we watched those beautiful babies happily chowing down while mama coon watched from a higher post in our tree.

END STORY...????

My husband put out some sushi in the back yard and I put out some crackers on the back deck.

I'll let you know when I know something.

Poor Oregonians

I thought this was an article from The Onion:

‘I Don’t Even Know HOW’: Some Oregonians Panic About New Self-service Gas Law

The line that kills me is, "I've lived in this state all my life and I REFUSE to pump my own gas ... This [is] a service only qualified people should perform."

Qualified people to pump gas?

Yes, some Oregonians could use some qualified people... qualified in the mental health field.

Today Is My Birthday

If I believed in spirit animals, mine would be a cat. What better than a grumpy birthday cat for me. I'm always grumpy on my birthday and this cold and rain isn't helping my mood.
