It is too bad I have been silenced
Washington Post, by Alexandra Petri

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 4/21/2018 4:51:50 AM

It is with a heavy heart, and profound regret for the current state of media in America, that I have dragged my laptop to a Starbucks to pen this column. But I think it is important that we understand the degree of oppression we are up against. I regret to say: I have been silenced. I expressed an opinion, and people criticized that opinion. And since that day, my voice has never been heard again. I am entombed where none can hear my jangling bells, for doing nothing more than walking down the street, saying that women who get abortions

What a bunch of gibberish, I guess the "masses" are supposed to know WHAT she was silenced for saying and WHY we were subjected to a tome more nonsensical that Dr. Suess. She certainly thinks highly of herself.

It´s a satire piece, but it´s not funny, convoluted, and jibberish.

I suggest if this woman wants to make a point, mock or condemn someone for being attacked by the far-left baby killing machine, maybe she should be brave and speak her mind.

I´m not exactly sure what Alexandra Petri is trying to accomplish with ehr little essay. Pretty clear, she has not been "silenced" if she is being published by the WaPo rag. She seems to certainly feel oppressed and drippingly "wet cat" sorry for herself. I do not like people who feel sorry for themselves. I felt sorry for myself once, and nothing good came of it. So, I think it is an exercise in stupidity- it accomplishes nothing. I get off on the fight, or the flight. When I go down, I go down swinging. Then do all I can to jump right back on my feet again. This gal can´t even decide on her own if she wants to go to the restroom!

My recent experience at Starbucks was a bit different. I went in and sat down briefly before ordering. Suddenly I desperately needed to pass gas. Loud music was playing, so I timed my release of gas to coincide with the very loudest music. Several times I succeeded at this, and felt much better. Then I noticed the everyone in the place seemed to be staring at me.....and I realized that I had my iPod on and the music was in my ear only.

Apologies in advance if everyone who doesn´t understand what this column is satirizing is actually being satirical about not understanding . . .

Recently conservative writer Kevin Williamson was hired then rapidly fired by The Atlantic, largely because of some truly heinous statements that women who have had abortions should be hanged. He then whined about it.

This is satire. It is the same writer writing in the same style that everyone thought was highly clever when she satirized James Comey not more than a few days ago.

#12 has it right. Her column specializes in satirical pieces. And quite often they are brilliant, as her piece last week on Comey was particularly on point.

But she´s a young writer and hasn´t yet developed the consistency required for exquisite satire. This piece is an example of what happens when the satire goes over the top.

In this case, there are two major problems. First, the object of her mockery (Kevin Williamson and his complaint) isn´t clear, nor well known even if clear. This is indeed very inside baseball. And second, the writing is simply over-wrought, like painting with a trowel instead of with a fine brush. The literary allusions are just over the top. She seemed to enjoy her thesaural and mythological play gym so much that she just couldn´t dial it back.

She´s really a terrific writer in mid-development. I´ll be back for more. But my advice to her is to pin this one up on her mental corkboard as how not to do it.

Can We Hope To Keep Our Republic
When One Of The Parties Supports Tyranny?
Townhall, by Kurt Schlichter    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 5/24/2018 5:14:46     Post Reply
Think about this – a significant portion of our country, including a majority of its elite, thinks that it’s A-OK for a Democrat administration to spy on a Republican candidate. Think hard about that. And think about whether or not we can ever put the pieces of our shattered republic back together again if we can’t even agree that using government power against our political enemies is a bad thing. But the terrifying truth is that liberals and their Never Trump enablers actually think this kind of tyranny is a good thing. You see, they think Normal Americans are so transcendently awful (and, even more importantly, that the elite’s power so

The Limits of Ruth
Bader Ginsburg’s Usefulness

Posted By: MissMolly- 5/24/2018 4:46:36     Post Reply
To understand the liberal worldview, the contrived campaign to make Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg into some kind of a folk hero is a useful object of study. She has been the subject of a variety of hagiographical portraiture, ranging from fawning magazine profiles and sycophantic treatment in film to illustrated children’s books. She inspires her followers to get her image tattooed onto their bodies, to mimic her fitness routines, to feel as she felt and to weep as she wept. This behavior lends itself to quite a few descriptors, but you cannot call it a cult. The cult leader is nigh infallible, but that is not Ginsburg’s role.

´Blue Wednesday´ in Chicago as union takes

It’s being called “Blue Wednesday” in Chicago as the city’s Fraternal Order of Police organized a unified public demonstration against Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who the FOP calls “anti-police.” During the city’s regularly scheduled city council meeting Wednesday morning, ranking members of the police union read aloud a strongly worded statement against Emanuel in which the FOP alleges the mayor has “turned his back” on his police department by being more concerned with “pandering to police-hating media” and by allowing the American Civil Liberties Union to have a seat at the negotiating table.

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday. Doing so violates their First Amendment right to free speech because Twitter is a “public forum,” Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald wrote in a landmark ruling that could change how public officials use Twitter. “We reject the defendants’ contentions that the First Amendment does not apply in this case and that the President’s personal First Amendment interests supersede those of plaintiffs,” the judge wrote in her 75-page ?decision.

The Democratic Party has no leader right now. No one. Former President Barack Obama is palling around with his billionaire, island-owning buddies. Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders is kicking back in one of his three houses (we’re guessing the big one on Lake Champlain). And the 20-some 2020 presidential wannabes are all jockeying for media attention (and cash, lots of cash). In such a void, that leaves just one person with the spotlight: the bitter, ever-angry, petty, vindictive Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton told the Democratic Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday that she would be a foundational part of the anti-Trump

John Brennan’s Plot to
Infiltrate the Trump Campaign
American Spectator, by George Neumayr    Original Article

As Trump won primary after primary in 2016, a rattled John Brennan started claiming to colleagues at the CIA that Estonia’s intelligence agency had alerted him to an intercepted phone call suggesting Putin was pouring money into the Trump campaign. The tip was bogus, but Brennan bit on it with opportunistic relish. Out of Brennan’s alarmist chatter about the bogus tip came an extraordinary leak to the BBC: that Brennan had used it, along with later half-baked tips from British intelligence, as the justification to form a multi-agency spy operation (given the Orwellian designation of an “inter-agency taskforce”) on the Trump

Revelations that an FBI informant insinuated himself into the Trump campaign have led some congressional investigators to rethink their theories on how and why former President Barack Obama´s Justice Department began investigating the 2016 Trump presidential effort. Most reporting has focused on the July 31, 2016, creation of a document formally marking the beginning of the FBI counterintelligence probe targeting the Trump campaign. The document, known as the electronic communication, or EC, is said to have focused on the case of George Papadopoulos, the peripheral Trump adviser who has pleaded guilty to lying to special counsel Robert Mueller about his contacts

I´m trying to remember a failed presidential candidate before now who made a second career out of whining about losing an election. Sure, Al Gore cried into his Hostess snack cakes for a while after his devastating loss, but then he found much greater success by appointing himself President of the Environment. John Kerry managed to weasel his way into an office for which he was even less suited than his predecessor. John McCain went back to the Senate.

After half a decade of stagnation, the story of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and his endless stay at the Ecuadorian embassy in London may be moving into high gear. It was only a week ago when we learned that his hosts were talking about either trying to sneak him out of the country to Russia or simply telling him to pack his things and walk out the door. They were also complaining about his grubby living conditions and describing him as being a “threat” to embassy personnel. Now, in yet another signal that it may be time to go, Ecuador has fully withdrawn Assange’s special security detail who had been protecting him. (Reuters)

Whatever you do, don’t say “spy.” That’s the essential takeaway from the New York Times article May 18. So that no one misses the message, it’s right there in the headline: “F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump Claims.” That’s reinforced in the opening sentence of the story, which proclaims President Donald Trump “accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign …” The Times makes it clear that Trump is wrong to claim that there was “at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into

Some NFL players are reportedly considering new ways to protest after NFL owners voted on a new national anthem policy Wednesday, reports Sports Illustrated´s Robert Klemko. According to Klemko, some are discussing ways to skirt new rules "just to spite the NFL." The policy removes a requirement for players to be on the field for the anthem, and gives players the option to stay in the locker room. Teams will be fined for any personnel that "do not show proper respect for the flag and Anthem” on the sidelines. Other journalists were hearing similar things from players they talked to.

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard
