A good start. First the firings. Then the indictments. And then the hangings. That should make some serious attitude adjustments.

I do hope this is the beginning of the long over due purge. He COULD have done this much earlier, but it would have been construed as obstruction of Congress. Not any more. It's your administration, put your people to work.

Those paying attention will know that it was Sondland's irresponsible presumptions that was the genesis of the whole impeachment fiasco. In a nod of fairness, the House demwits had an impeachment in search of a reason since day one, so if not him... someone or something else. But, the firings should send a much-needed message to anyone else who has a loose tongue.

And we shouldn't replace him. By having an ambassador to the EU we give it legitimacy. Now that Brexit is in full swing, we should just recognize ambassadors from sovereign nations, not some Euro-socialist club for the elite.

China's Communist Party has infiltrated various levels of America's infrastructure and is working to destroy the values of the United States, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a speech Saturday, while also warning state governors to be wary of China's infiltration. “We can’t ignore China’s actions and strategic intentions," he said while addressing the National Governors Association winter meeting. "The Chinese government has been methodical in the way it's analyzed our system... it's assessed our vulnerabilities and it's decided to exploit our freedoms, to gain an advantage over us at the federal level, the state level and the local level."

James Carville, a former top adviser to President Clinton, laid out a scathing critique of his party, arguing that it drifted way too far to the left and was on the way to failure as a result of pushing extreme policy ideas. "We just had an election in 2018. We did great. We talked about everything we needed to talk about and we won," he said in a Vox interview published on Friday. "And now it’s like we’re losing our damn minds. Someone’s got to step their game up here." Carville added that he considered himself a "liberal" rather than a centrist -- but Democrats went too far even for him.

The theory for those pushing the green new deal or some other radical energy policy that will destroy tens of millions of jobs and greatly harm the poor and middle class is that humans, CO2, and fossil fuels cause warming and climate change. This warming causes the ice to melt in Alaska, then the melting ice causes sea levels to rise and the rising sea levels will cause coastal cities to under water. They have predicted the coastal cities to disappear for the last 100 years and they have been wrong for 100 years.

Every year 3 million visitors make the pilgrimage to Ellis Island. It is estimated nearly forty percent of all Americans can trace their ancestors to the 20 million immigrants that were processed through New York and Ellis Island from 1892 to 1954. These prospective citizens were determined to escape authoritarianism, soul grinding poverty, war and its aftermath, immutable class structures as well as religious and ethnic persecution. Once here they would immerse themselves in learning English and the nation’s founding documents in preparation for the most gut wrenching (passing the oral citizenship test) and emotional (the swearing in ceremony) day in their lives.

Make no mistake: Big Mike (Mini Mike?) is coming for our guns. He might just buy the White House or the Democratic Party and then start passing laws that ignore the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Everything has a price. As the camel's head extends into the tent, you will hear the term "commonsense gun laws." The implication is that if you don't agree with the people pushing these laws, you lack common sense. There are some rules that are common sense. Some version of these rules will come with any gun you buy.

For a number of years in the 20-aughts, I worked in Wuhan, Hubei Province, People’s Republic of China.

A fatal flaw in the liberal character 6 replies
Posted by DVC 1/23/2020 2:04:14 PM Post Reply
I think most conservatives live in the moment way better than liberals. “Liberal” is a sort of umbrella term; it encompasses leftist, progressive, and maniac. Liberals live in a dimension of only two personal time zones; the present and the near future. Conservatives consider a third element; we call it the past. The liberal acknowledges a past that is only a craven reflection of reality; it is full of caricature and devoid of character. It is easy to point out the bad side of human nature if that is all you’re looking for. If you read at all as a child, you opened up your personality for self-consideration.
Six shades of fire-lighters in Australia 1 reply
Posted by DVC 1/23/2020 1:41:10 PM Post Reply
Australian fire-lighters come in six colors — yellow, black, white, blood red, dark green, and light green. All are relevant to bushfires and forest management. "Yellow" is the fire-lighter that has been with us forever. It is the yellow flash of lightning, which has always ignited the Australian bush. We're dreaming to think we can lock yellow fire out of parks, forests, and heritage areas. But good forest management can reduce the ferocity and destruction of lightning-strike fires. "Black" fire-lighters came with the first Australians. Without matches or tinder boxes, they probably captured the fire genie from a lightning fire.
The Rage of the Democrats 10 replies

What underlies the rage of the Democrat Party and of the leftist Democrat Establishment vis-à-vis President Donald Trump? Over forty years ago, during my high school years in Iran, my father and I had a conversation. He was an avid Republican, even though he lived on the other side of the world. Right before I prepared to leave Iran for the U.S., he gave me some fatherly advice. He explained why the Democrat Party was bad for America, bad for Iran, and bad for the world. He advised me that if I ever became a US citizen, I should never vote for Democrats. After all these years, I now understand what he meant by those words  of wisdom.

The most important thing that happened during President Trump’s post-impeachment rant at the White House didn’t happen at the lectern. Yes, as usual, he called me a sleaze and scum and a dirty cop and said he likely would no longer be president if he hadn’t fired me. Although I still can’t follow the logic of that last bit, it doesn’t matter. The important thing was what happened in the audience, where there were plenty of intelligent people of deep commitment to religious principle. They laughed and smiled and clapped as a president of the United States lied, bullied, cursed and belittled the faith of other leaders. That was the deeply disturbing

Immigration experts and House Republicans are balking at the New Way Forward Act, a Democratic bill that is being described as an embrace of “open borders” and likely to be the most “radical” legislation ever introduced in history. Democratic Illinois Rep. Jesús García, along with several other progressive House members, introduced the New Way Forward Act in December 2019, to seemingly little fanfare. The bill, among many things, calls for the decriminalization of illegal immigration, would make it more difficult to deport convicted criminal aliens, empower immigration judges to nullify deportation orders, and also calls for the return of previously deported illegal aliens.

At a time when Confederate monuments are being pulled down, it would make sense to think that the military geniuses who defeated the real live Confederates might in conversity be honored, right? Not in an age of idiocy. So, the 200th birthday of General William T. Sherman, destroyer of Atlanta and much of the South across the Civil War, the master strategist who, alongside U.S. Grant. led the Union forces to victory, goes virtually unnoted. It shows that the Confederate statue pulldown isn't really about winners or losers.
