Love Breeds Accountability Takes a Look Back at Several #NeverTrumpers we’d Grown to Love, including Captain Kneepants

(I wanted to print out this piece entirely, but couldn’t copy the Tweets.)

Referred by Mollie Hemingway, a great read about the crow-eating of some of our favorite #NeverTrumpers, including Captain Kneepants and one of the Howe Brothers we sought to save right here at UP early in the 2016 campaign, when it was clear that the grown-ups had vision where the neo-intellectual kids were still wearing bi-focals. We did a piece on Jonah Goldberg as well as a response to the Feb 2016 National Review banner condemnation, which apparently went the same way as the very recent Democrat attack on Brett Kavanaugh, for pretty much the same reasons, “Trump fights”, as the author below lays out splendidly.

Some of the signatory writers in the “Against Trump” number were quicker than others to shush their bile and just watch as battalion after battalion of leftwingers jumped over the Golden Gate railing as well as sanity, as the true Left finally revealed of themselves what more mature and experienced observers always knew about their true intentions.

Just note, deep vanity does not go away simply because one is proved wrong publicly. The better man learns, the lesser person just hunkers, seethes and waits for another chance at vindication and may even secretly pray the Left will give it to them

Otherwise, enjoy. I love to see my “betters” names in lights.

After Kavanaugh Win, A Look Back At Jonah Goldberg & Others Who Mocked Trump Supporters For Saying ‘He Fights!’

J’Accuse

J’Accuse

When a political end trumps personal destruction of the innocent, we know we are among truly evil people, from  Jeff Flake, Lisa Murkowski, to DiFi, to CNN and dozens more.

Cynical indifference to the infliction of pain and suffering on innocent people is the greatest sin…

…cold blooded murder not even a close second.

It’s not that there is still not a scintilla of evidence that supports the assault claim by Ms Christine Blasey-Ford, for that only points the finger of guilt at her. A single soul lost to burn. Happens every day.

But when men and women, feigning good faith, hiding behind the Office in the fortress of an institution seen by the People as the fountain of justice and honor, are willing, no, attempting, to destroy good men and their entire families for a shallow political end, or perhaps a mere spite and malice of a personal nature, they are betraying everything that is holy to this Republic.

They are traitors and my only regret is that we can’t already produce the scaffold to hang them.

Standing around telling lies

Last night’s debate between New York’s own fascist dictator Andrew Cuomo and his challenger Cynthia Nixon of Sex and the City fame sounds so amazing …

Police with Toys

In Paraguay, thieves replace police armory with toys that resemble the real weapons. When seconds matter, the police have toy guns.
