From My CP: Statues, Leadership and The Choices I’ve Made

The dogs and I just finished trooping the line.  Every day when I return from work its time to troop the line.  The dogs are dying to smell every track and trail left by the creatures who have trespassed our boundaries.  Saga Horribilus, a Panda Bear Boxer tipping the scales at 7.2lbs of steely eyed ...

Has Schiff Shifted? Have the Democrats Shifted on Russia?

And did the 20 June, 2017 kerplunking of the Democrat's latest Great White Hope in Georgia have anything to do with it? The House Permanent Select Committee has as its principal mission to look into Russian influence during the 2016 election. You may recall that the committee's chairman, Devin Nunes (R-CA), recused himself from this investigation April 6, ... Read More

#GA06 Remembered the Meaning of Carpetbagger

Karen Handel won yesterday's GA-06 Special Election. A few brief thoughts are to be noted; they are a follow-up to Vassar Bushmills' analysis in his, "How Long Can Karen Handel Hold her Seat After Winning GA-06?" Post election, I would like to add some additional thoughts. Karen Handel did win yesterday; here are some pertinent ... Read More

Democrats Place Bounty on Trump Agenda, GOP Leadership Aims to Collect

If you stop to consider the profile of James Hodgkison there is more there there than first imagined. I'm sure when the media covered the various Occupy events in 2011-2012, no one noticed the few 50+ to 60+ year old men wedged in between all the snowflakes and sonnenkinder. He was not crazy, any more ... Read More

From My CP: D-Day, Ronaldus Magnus and Happy Birthday US Army

The garden is trying to kill me.  It hasn't been successful yet but I must admit I've considered suck starting a 9mm.  My son asked to borrow my knife late Monday afternoon during our gardening, I refused to give it to him til he promised he would only make one cut upon his wrist before ...

Shakespeare in Love, a Reflection of Two Classes, circa 1998

I saw "Shakespeare in Love" last night for the first time since I saw it in a theater in Cincinnati in 1998. The film won the Best Picture Academy Award that year, as well as a Best Actress (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Best Supporting Actress (Judy Dench). Since the (fictionalized) story was about Shakespeare's writing and producing ... Read More

Call Me a Heretic, but I’m Not Buying Hillary’s “Daily Devotions” Book

Fellow patriot, Kenny, brought to my attention a new book written by a member of the cult of Hillary Clinton. Now our own Vassar Bushmills often reminds us about not judging, and that the state of a man's (or woman's soul) is in the Hands of God, the Creator. IOW, only He can know the ... Read More

First coal mine in 6 years opens in Pennsylvania

One may be able to say Obama's "war on coal" is dead, but that doesn't mean coal has made a complete comeback. Or ever will. Thanks to the discovery of natural gas and the use of fracking, "coal" will never be "king" again like it was in the years of our parents and grandparents. But ... Read More

The James B. Comey Senate Hearings

I just heard Charles Krauthammer do his apolitical, fair-and-balanced analysis of things and his take was that Trump came out looking bad today. When it was pointed out to him that Comey admitted to this and that, and Comey leaked about his chat with the President and other things, and Comey didn't blow the whistle ... Read More

How Long Can Karen Handel Hold Her Seat After Winning GA-06?

Blind ambition can be painful, but stupid ambition is suicide. The GA-06 seat is open, made open because Donald Trump hand-picked its former occupant, Dr Tom Price, a staunch conservative, to become Director of Heath and Human Services. It was Dr Price, in that cabinet seat, that caused the House Freedom Caucus to okay a compromise Obamacare repeal, now awaiting ... Read More

Reality Winner Becomes a Loser: Espionage Act Works

Yesterday, a new meme magically made its way into the 24/7 news cycle. What would we do without at least one new story a day pushing the, "But Russia, but Russia interfered" election narrative? Reality Winner, yes, that's her name, and I'm not concerned if she was born with it or not - it's obviously ... Read More

Impulses of the Damned

Donald Trump is not a messiah, although some seem to see him as such. This is a lamentable condition, but one which we'll have to discuss at a later time. But as I have mentioned over and over again since early in the 2016 campaign, when people speak of Donald Trump, they are usually speaking of something else ... Read More

Helter Skelter or A Bucket of Cold Water? What the Next Civil War May Turn Into

(You'll be happy to know I'll not have anything else to say on this subject. Time to rock and roll.) In the past two segments I tried to convey how this new civil war should play out, not as a shooting war, but as a strategic war fought largely between two competing bodies of citizens ... Read More

@USAA A Day Late And Millions Of Dollars Short

It is quite lovely that USAA has decided that Sean Hannity isn't the devil incarnate. It is too late though because, like Target, and other sundry "businesses" they decided that their social justice business was more important than their actual money making business. It is not the purview of companies to insert themselves into the ... Read More

Trump Leads Our Return to Patriotism: Memorial Day 2017

Yesterday, I watched the laying of the Wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and then the visit to Arlington by our President. Listened to the speeches... and thoroughly enjoyed how many times President Trump mentioned God. If memory serves me correctly, Barack Obama didn't go to Arlington his first presidential year; he had ... Read More
