Welcome back everyone! After our Lefty pals gave us a preview of the insanity we can expect for the next two years on their first day in The House, they kept their foot on the gas and kept the crazy coming! First we take a jump into the Wayback Machine and go all the way back to 2018…
10/5/18 – Trump 2020?
This came via a Facebook commenter, and a good read by #NeverTrumper Erick Erickson. In response to my lamenting how far Jonah Goldberg has sunk, here’s a great post by someone who dislikes our president but gets it. The last line of the post nails it, but you’ll have to click through to read it. Instead I’ll give you this great line for a taste:
Progressives may claim President Trump is Caesar at the edge of the Rubicon, but they have embraced the bastard love child of Joseph Stalin and Franz Kafka and enlisted the American political press to smear, defame, and attack anyone who stands in their way.
Back to my favorite Lefty Entertainment News sites – The Observer! We Conservatives like to rip on how Lefties have no sense of humor when it comes to their own, and this post on plastic straws is a welcome exception. Since John DeVore gives us the rare combination of a Lefty 1) laughing at their own and 2) making political humor that’s actually funny, please give him a click!
I’m old enough to remember when marrying a sibling was an insult that Leftists would throw at Conservatives, rather than quietly embracing it.
Some minor friendly fire – CNN has its chart for Unemployment numbers stop at the start of the Trump presidency for obvious reasons, but the author doesn’t provide the kill shot of including Obama’s numbers side by side. I said as much in the comments, and hopefully it came across as constructive.
1/5 – REPUBLICANS POUNCE!
Take a guess how The Radical Left in the media is portraying the “Impeach the mother f***er!” comment. Go ahead, guess!
If it weren’t for double standards, Leftists wouldn’t have any at all
This perfectly sums up the difference between the two parties. No matter how much power Republicans have they will always find a way to fail to advance a conservative agenda. The Radical Left gets control of 1/2 of the weakest branch of federal government and they launch an ambitious radical agenda. This is why so many of us continue to support Trump – at times it feels like he’s the only person in Washington who doesn’t hate us Normals
The money quote in response to the “Impeach the mother f***er!” stupidity:
“You call him an M-fer because you don’t like the way he talks,” she said. “But you don’t have the guts to follow through with your claim. When you are confronted by the press you whimper away and run from the American media. Did Nancy [Pelosi] rein you in, Rashida?”
Ah, and now The Radical Left is in a race as to who can be the dumbest. How about a 100% rate? I’m sure this would be good for improving foreign relations, as these kinds of tax increases would send insane amounts of investment capital overseas.
More semi-friendly fire. Author Matt Margolis got banned from a Conservative site for being a liberal after challenging an obviously fake news piece. Yes, the man who wrote a bestselling book on why Obama was the worst president in our nation’s history is a liberal. His main point is an argument I’ve also used – when there are plenty of legit reasons to criticize the other side, don’t let fake stories diminish your overall arguments.
And Margolis has another book coming up on how Trump saved us from Obama’s legacy – I’ll keep you posted when it gets released!
IBD gives a great response to Gulag Barbie’s calls for socialism – this is another good piece to bookmark for reference
You’ve probably watched Tucker’s speech from a few nights ago by now. While I saw flaws in some of what he was saying, overall it was damned good. What’s more interesting is the hysterics of the Vichy Conservative #NeverTrumpers
This is part of my an unfettered flow of illegal immigrants is so important to Democrats – the uppity Americans can no longer be relied on to vote as they’re told and must now have their voting power diluted, and eventually replaced.
This is a fair question to raise. If Obama, Schumer, etc. all held opinions a decade ago that national security and a border wall that have completely reversed, then what changed? I don’t have an issue with changing positions on an issue (For example, today I am far more pro 2nd Amendment than I was 20 years ago), but if you do you should be able to articulate what changed or what new facts you learned. Saying that your views “evolved”or giving the sputtering explanations that the Dems have given tells me one or two reasons: 1) You were lying previously to say something popular while failing to take any action or 2) You hate the proponents of today’s policy, and will say to Hell with the views you claimed to have and are a hypocrite (A frequent position of Vichy Conservatives). I this case I’m leaning more toward #1.
This is one of the rare times I’ll use oppose an argument using that silly Leftist excuse of “Whataboutism” (which is just Leftspeak for “How dare you point out my hypocrisy!”). The post shows how Lefties are willing to drop billions of dollars on building projects of questionable value, which is bunk. The value of a project is the merit of it and that alone. That said, while I find this to be an unserious argument it can be a fun sticking point if you find yourself debating an unserious Left Wing Extremist.
There’s really nothing I can add to that.
ICYMI – Yes, I’m finally getting back into writing more than these summaries, putting up two posts this week:
The end of the NFL regular season’s annual ritual of head coaches being fired bought out an ugly side to Leftists when we saw that Racist Leftists Think that Nonwhite NFL Coaches Must be Held to Lower Standards!
I also named the 2018 person of the Year. To promote it in proper clickbait fashion, the winner WILL ASTONISH YOU!
From the archives, I recalled a post I wrote regarding a previous federal government shutdown – The #1 Lesson from the Shutdown is that the Left in America is Completely Gone
I didn’t realize it’s been five years since President Stompyfoot punished the American people over a shutdown. More significantly for me personally, it was the beginning of my realizing the futility of engaging Leftists on any level. What starts as a post on the Barrycades around various memorials and national parks shows an incredibly disturbing look into the mindset of the American Left. This resonates today with the leaders of the Democrats’ opposition to building a border wall to protect the United States.
And the last item I’ll leave you with comes from Flopping Aces commenter Kitt dropping this gem in the comments section of last week’s TWIRL – Ding Dong the Witch is Dead, 2016 edition
Have a great week, everybody!

Airline security staff are notoriously Islamophobic.
If you don’t believe me, try shouting “Allāhu Akbar” at an airport and see what happens.

America, meet the Pelosi House. Articles of impeachment, a move to abolish the electoral college, comparisons of the president to Hitler, a nonstarter vote on the shutdown, profanity, a proposal for a 70% tax on the "wealthy"–all under 36 hours. Wait till they get rolling.
