The usual suspects are defending Sarah Jeong, the recent NY times hire, who turns out to be a bigot with a lot of time on her hands — time she seems to devote exclusively to tweeting extremely crude obscenities about white people – by insisting that she only attacks in response to being attacked.
Even if it were true, which it isn’t, she has never been attacked by the entire Caucasian race. In addition to which, these are the same left-wing loons who condemn Trump for fighting back against the partisan hacks at CNN, MSNBC and the Washington Post, who spend every second of every day lying about him.
⦿ scumbag-George Soros, the billionaire pinhead who made his money the old-fashioned way, by manipulating currency, donated $3 million to keep the lights on at the NY Times. Of course there were no strings attached, so it was just a coincidence that a few months later, the Times ran a glowing profile of…a drum roll, please… scumbag-George Soros.
I’m not saying that if you write the paper a check for $3 million, they’ll run a tribute to you, but I’m guessing it would increase your odds.
⦿ Because New York is such a happening town, you’ll probably not be too surprised to hear that the City Council has decided to name a street after a brutal 19th century Haitian dictator do they ever have any other kind?, Jean-Jacques Desalines. Rumor has it that Hitler Avenue. Stalin Boulevard and Castro Circle are in the works.
⦿ Two of the biggest blunders in American history, at least prior to Barack liar-nObama’s election, can be laid at the feet of Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon. Carter was the idiot who pulled the Persian rug out from under the Shah of Iran’s feet, ushering in the Ayatollah Khomeini and 40 years of Islamic terrorism.
Nixon’s folly was inviting Red China to join the community of nations. He might as well have invited in the bubonic plague.
China is far and away the single greatest threat confronting the world, the U.S. in particular. China is no better-behaved now than it was when Nixon and Kissinger, aka Dumb and Dumber, swung open the door. The only thing that’s changed is that China is richer and has a more powerful military than it had back in 1970 and is a far more dangerous foe than the Soviet Union ever was.
By the way, the super patriots at Google are working hand-in-hand with China’s military while, at the same time, refusing to cooperate with the Pentagon.
⦿ The good news is that, at least in part, thanks to Trump’s confronting China and it would serve some people well if they paid more attention to Trump’s actions and got over the soft soap he gift-wraps to President Xi, China is suffering an economic slowdown.
China’s stock market is down 25%. Its banks are being bailed out by the government. In addition, China has been lending billions of dollars to countries like Pakistan and a number of shitholes in Africa, where China is looking to expand its evil influence, that have no chance of being able to repay the loans.
Say what you will about Trump, he has great timing and he recognizes chinks in his enemies’ armor often before they do, as his 16 opponents in the 2016 primary can readily confirm.
⦿ Mollie Hemingway, probably the brightest and most logical person who ever appears on Fox, recently observed: “Donald Trump did not create distrust of the media. Distrust of the media helped create Donald Trump.”
⦿ If you thought the damage done to America by the various federal agencies was limited to Washington, D.C., think again. It was disclosed that a Russian spy who had easy access to America’s secrets was employed at our embassy in Moscow for over ten years.
According to The Guardian, the State Department’s Regional Security Office first became suspicious of her activities in 2016, but the Secret Service failed to launch a full scale investigation, probably because they were otherwise occupied as a part of the cabal to bring down Trump. Instead, at some point in 2017, they let her go quietly, no doubt to avoid potential and well-deserved embarrassment.
It occurred to me that if those whose mission, allegedly, is to protect Americans, did that job half as well as they protect their own behinds, we’d be a lot better off than we are.
⦿ John Rocke summed up a recent week by pointing out that Trump had struck a trade deal with the EU, called out Twitter for shadow-banning conservatives, brought back military remains from North Korea and announced a 4.1% GDP and a 3.9% unemployment rate.
For their part, the dummycrats-Democrats banned plastic straws.
⦿ In his book, “Inconvenient Facts: The Science Thatscumbag-Al Gore Doesn’t Want You to Know,” Gregory Wrightstone wrote: “Every time a Bill Nye or Neil deGrasse Tyson or any of the many ‘pop’ scientists repeat the ‘97% consensus’ fallacy regarding global warming, my own inclination is to throw a shoe at whatever device I’m watching. Science is a search for truth. It is not a popularity contest.”
⦿ Penny Alfonso, one of the only conservatives living in Chicago, sent me a picture of Kermit the Frog in which Kermit says: “Hey California…if you’re looking to ban plastics, start with your celebrities.”
⦿ When Bob Hunt, a Vietnam vet, reminded me that hanoi-John Kerry got to write up the recommendations for his own medals, I reminded him that the big phony not only didn’t throw his own medals over the wall of the Pentagon, as he pretended to for the photographers, he actually had them framed and later hung them on the wall of his Senate office.
I admitted to Bob that I tend not to put much stock in awards of any kind, unless, of course, I happen to win one.
⦿ It’s also Mr. Hunt who recalled living in Florida when Hurricane Matthew hit the mainland. As he reports: “I was ready for it, but my wife was not.
“When the wind reached a screaming pitch with the trees snapping like twigs, the horizontal streaming rain, the tin roofs lifting off houses and sheds, my wife was rooted to the spot.
“I’ll never forget the way she stared and stared through the window, her nose pressed to the glass, screaming like I’ve never heard. The stark terror in her eyes will remain with me forever.
“Fortunately, after a few minutes, the winds let up and I was able to open the door and let her in.”
