I would find it a lot easier to deal with the various pundits and reporters who lie about President Trump if the damn hypocrites didn’t insist on wrapping themselves in the warm embrace of the First Amendment.

A lot of good men fought and died in the creation of our Constitution, and a great many more have died in its defense, and it wasn’t in order that lesser men could use it as a shield against justifiable attacks.

That is why I am offended when the few honest journalists pile on Trump, pretending that he’s including everyone with a press pass when he condemns the media as enemies of the people. The fact is, the overwhelming majority of so-called journalists today lie for a living. Would they have him say: “Every person working at the three major networks, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the L.A. Times and the Chicago Tribune, except for George, Shirley, Andy, Tom and Carol, is an enemy of the people and should never be believed”?

⦿ I realize it opens me up to condemnation as a racist and a xenophobe when I take pot shots at urban blacks and illegal aliens, but if that’s the price to be paid for writing what I honestly believe, so be it.

I fully understand that in every group of people, there will be exceptions to the rule. But I am not about to dilute my true feelings by stating in every instance that urban blacks are a disgrace to their race, except for the few who aren’t. Perhaps I would have a change of heart if they didn’t all vote for the likes of scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters and scumbag-Elijah Cummings.

Neither am I going to deny that I would like to see machine gun nests set up at our southern border, although with the sincere hope that they would work as a deterrent and would never need to be fired.

The fact is, unless someone who wants to enter the country possesses particularly impressive skills, other than a willingness to work for the minimum wage or collect welfare, I don’t see any need to have more than 325 million people inside our borders. What? You think we can do with more traffic and fewer parking spaces?

Understand, I don’t dislike Latinos. We have a lot of them in our neighborhood, and I like the ones I know. But enough is enough. I don’t see an advantage of allowing them to overwhelm the nation. I don’t regard their culture, their history or their character, as superior to our own

Perhaps we could adopt Mexico’s system and simply transport those trying to escape shitholes like Venezuela, Honduras, El Salvador and, well, Mexico, and drop them off at the Canadian border and let Justin Trudeau deal with them.

⦿ In the wake of President Trump’s questioning the value of NATO, some people have finally begun asking if it is in America’s interest to remain in mutual-defense organizations when it inevitably falls on our shoulders to provide most of the funding and most of the defense.

The question, as posed by Fox’s Tucker Carlson, is how many Americans would be willing to send their sons and daughters off to defend the tiny European nation of Montenegro population: 629,000 if it were invaded by Russia or even Monaco?

It immediately occurred to me that Rep. scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters would object to our lifting a finger to defend it on the grounds that the nation is racist and would prove it by pointing out that the last half of its name is “negro.”

⦿ In an article written by Matthew Continetti last December that I just got around to reading, he reported that when education-secretary designate Betsy DeVos went before the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions, the Connecticut dummycrats-Democrat Chris Murphy asked: “Do you think guns have any place in or around schools?”

Mrs. DeVos answered: “I think that’s best left to states and locales to decide. If the underlying question is…”

Murphy interrupted her to remark: “You can’t say definitely today that guns shouldn’t be in schools?”

Unlike someone like me, the lady didn’t chide him for interrupting her. Instead, she said: “I will refer you back to Senator Enzi and the school he was talking about in Wapiti, Wyoming. I would imagine that there’s probably a gun in that school to protect from potential attacks by grizzlies.”

The bears are no joke. According to my friend Steve Maikoski, who’s familiar with the town, folks have to drive at least 12 miles away if they want to jog without risking an encounter with a grizzly.

Predictably, the media reported the exchange in the following manner: “Betsy DeVos Cites Grizzly Bears During Guns-in-Schools Debate”-NBC news headline; “Citing grizzlies, education nominee says states should determine school gun policies” (CNN); “Sorry, Betsy DeVos, Guns Aren’t a Bear Necessity in Schools”-Atlantic magazine.

How can one even consider debating issues seriously with liberals when they insist on removing any hint of context in their coverage of the news and, instead, ladle out daily servings of codswallop? In this case, they didn’t even bother informing the public that it was a member of the Senate committee who had mentioned the necessity of having guns handy when there is the likelihood in places like Wyoming, if not in New York City, where kids have other things to be worried about besides lunatics who would, in a sane society, be locked up.
