E pluribus unum

An excellent piece by Ryan P. Williams of the Claremont Institute:

Defend America—Defeat Multiculturalism

FTA: "Through identity politics and political correctness, today's multiculturalist enforcers seek to erase and replace America. Together, we must save the Union once again."

Out of many, one.

Obstruction Of Coup?

I recently tweeted: "Were we reading the same report or did I fall into Bizarro world?"

The left promptly forgot about collusion and started up with the new buzzword: obstruction.

Slimy Group Therapy For The Trump Haters

FTA: "If you are looking for a high crime and misdemeanor to justify impeachment, there is no such crime as “obstruction of coup”. As a matter of fact, obstruction of coup would seem to be a patriotic act for which the president should be praised not impeached."

Hear. Hear.

Throwback Thursday

This is where I went to 6th grade, the Holy Name of Jesus school in Manhattan, a very humbling structure.

After lunch we'd play on the sidewalk and sniper nuns would watch us from the parapets.

One day a bunch of us got in BIG trouble for holding hands and spinning in a circle.

We had to bring notes home for our parents to sign absolving the school from liability in case we cracked our skulls performing daredevil acts.😱

Those were the days...

Deadly Bird

Giant Bird, Cassowary Claws Owner To Death In Florida

Think of it as death by modern day velociraptor*. The cassowary (Casuarius casuarius) is a large bird (~6') that sports 5-inch claws and runs very fast (~31 mph). It is considered the world's most dangerous bird. Why in the world would you keep one in your yard?


Leave it to one Florida man who found out the hard way that a cassowary doesn't make a good pet.

* [The Blog note: I use the term velociraptor loosely and only because it is highly recognizable as opposed to the actual fierce dinosaur bird, Deinonychus, which few are familiar with. Thanks for perpetuating the lie, Jurassic Park franchise.]

... a cat's reaction to a piece of celery.

Why, it's akin to my reaction to a photo of a traitor to America. 😉

Un-American $#%!&

During a speech to CAIR, Ilhan Omar referred to the heinous attacks of 9/11 as, "some people did something."

Ilhan Omar’s Outrageous Write-off Of 9/11’s Horrors

In fact, Omar claims that moslems are being "terrorized" by the nation's response to 9/11.


Here's some feedback from others:

"Ilhan Omar isn’t just anti-Semitic – she’s anti-American." RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel.

"First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as “some people who did something”. Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas.

"I am questioning how any American, let alone a United States Congresswoman, could downplay the 9/11 attacks," Brian Kilmeade, Fox News.

Here's my feedback:

Save your taqqiya (lies) for some lefty idiot who falls for it. I would enjoy putting on a pair of surgical gloves first, then grabbing you by the fugly azzhat thing on her head and dragging your somalian azz out of the Halls of Congress, where you don't belong, and slapping it onto the nearest flight to your s**t-hole village, where you do belong.

If anybody complains about my feedback, well, ... some blogger said some things.

For Our Republic

HAMMER: We Have A Crisis Of Civics. Start Teaching The Constitution In Elementary School.

This is a step in the right direction, but civics education needs to extend far beyond the confines of a school. It behooves us all, as citizens, to grasp the fundamentals of our representative constitutional republic.

The Justification Trap

From Sundance at The Conservative Treehouse:

Beware Of Obama’s Outrage Trap – Susan Rice’s “By The Book” Memo… "

FTA: "In short, avoid the “justification trap” by ignoring the downstream activity (stemming as a result of the fraudulent origin), and focus on revealing the origin of the fraud."

This is a very informative article. Well worth the time.
