  • VIDEO: Should PJ Visit North Korea for DUmmie FUnnies Subs?

    DUmmie FUnnies I had a Quantum Leap type recurring dream last night that gave me an idea on how I could get a YUUUUUGE number of subscriptions for the DUmmie FUnnies. The problem is that there is also a YUUUUUGE downside to the idea. Tell me what you think? Should PJ take the risk of visiting North Korea to carry out his plan?

    Safeguarding America's security--and American lives--should be paramount and non-negotiable President Trump’s Proclamation of a National Emergency on the Southern Border has ensured that the consequences of the illegal entry of drugs, criminals and foreigners through that porous border will now be owned by the Congress and not the President—guaranteeing him certain victory in the 2020 Presidential elections. The rush to test the legal validity of Trump’s Proclamation in the Courts was clearly in Trump’s mind even before he had signed the final papers:

    Obviously spurred on by the high number of Republicans who said they’d vote against President Donald Trump’s call for a National Emergency on the border wall, Waters wants Republicans to take to the streets hoping that anarchy can force the Impeachment of the beleaguered president.
  • Democrats don’t bite on Booker vegan flap

    Politico ^ | 2/17/19 | NOLAN D. MCCASKILL
    When an interview surfaced this week that brought Sen. Cory Booker’s vegan lifestyle to the forefront, it seemed like the New Jersey senator would be forced to do the first damage control of his nascent presidential campaign. Iowa ranks as the No. 1 pork-producing state in the nation, after all, and the state Farm Bureau reports that 95 percent of Iowans eat meat at least weekly. **SNIP** Booker is already looking ahead: He told “The View” this month that while he won’t be eating pork chops on a stick at the Iowa State Fair, “There will be lots of deep-fried...
  • How Does a Straight White Male Democrat Run for President? (very carefully)

    Politico ^ | 2/17/19 | BILL SCHER
    Of the nine candidates officially running in the Democratic presidential primary, only one is a heterosexual white man. And that guy, former Rep. John Delaney, generally polls somewhere between zero and 1 percent. But of the 17 Democrats reportedly still pondering a presidential bid, all but one is a straight white man. It’s hard to chalk that up to coincidence. Clearly, the women and minority candidates sensed that the water is warm for them, and the straight white men appear to be worried that this is just not their year. CNN’s demographic number cruncher Ron Brownstein noted recently that the...

    Nobody can smack down corporate greed like a good little Democratic Socialist:She doubled down on her opposition to evil corporate capitalists on Saturday: “We need to create dignified jobs in New York City,” Ocasio-Cortez said at a ceremonial inauguration ceremony Saturday in the Bronx. “We don't have to settle for scraps in the greatest city in the world.” Well here’s the deal honey, we can’t all be lucky enough to land a job as a bartender were we ply our economics degree into a 6-digit income at the public trough.

    “Blessed Is the Man Whose Delight Is in the Law of the Lord” (Psalm 1)This morning I want us to look at the psalm appointed for this day, Psalm 1. And we’ll do so under the theme: “Blessed Is the Man Whose Delight Is in the Law of the Lord.” If you have an ESV Bible or a Lutheran Service Book, turn now to Psalm 1 and follow along as I read: Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but...

Something you may not know Jeannie -- I keep a fast-paced schedule, both when I'm on Capitol Hill and when I'm on the trail for Democrats across the country. People ask what keeps me going. Most are astounded to learn I don't drink coffee. For me, two scoops of dark chocolate ice cream and a little hot water with lemon does the trick. And I'll tell you what keeps our network going: passionate supporters like you Jeannie. Since Trump took office, we've worked against his fear mongering, hateful rhetoric...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the soul of the Democrat Party. By definition, she is crazy. Take her very seriously. Jeff Bezos did not. He had, after all, bought off the equally crazy mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, to get the city to pay for a second Amazon "headquarters" there. Now the deal has fallen through. Fingers are pointed by the political and media class, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is spiking the ball. She should. She killed it. New York City is a socialist mess with an underbrush of rules and taxes so thick that no one can navigate it without...

Tear gas used against some on the Champs-Elysees late in the afternoon. More will rally and march in Paris tomorrow with four events listed to mark the three month anniversary of the Yellow Vests protests.

The government says 41,500 protested. Thousands on the streets in Bordeaux with police making a handful...

    Illinois Review ^ | February 15, 2019 A.D. | John F Di Leo
    You may remember the tag line of a popular ad campaign: “This is NOT your father’s Oldsmobile.” The company was trying to reinvent its image, to shake the automaker’s reputation as a stodgy businessman’s car company, and recast it as a home of sleek design for hip young people. Whether it was successful or not, it was useful as a reminder that nothing is static anymore; some aspects of an issue remain the same, while others are constantly changing. A famous 1970s book and film, Alvin Toffler’s “Future Shock,” hammered this home for my generation, stressing not only that some...

It doesn’t exist. It’s an abatement. $27 billion, we put down three. That’s business. That’s what happens,” argued Deutsch. “And you attach this to the Green Deal and you...

    Gun Control To all those gun control folks out there, please stop trying to tell us that you don't want a ban on ALL guns. We know that’s a lie. The goal has always been the complete prohibition of private ownership of firearms and everybody knows it. You can deny this, But You are either lying to yourself, or everyone else. You have been working incrementally for the last 50 years, slowly but surely passing laws and regulations that are designed to do nothing less that remove all of those DANGEROUS guns. ZIP guns, Saturday night specials, large capacity magazines,...

    The Aurora murderer at the Henry Pratt Co. valve manufacturing plant in Illinois was a prohibited possessor of firearms. He had been convicted of aggravated assault in Mississippi in 1995, for stabbing a woman. He was about 22 years old at the time. Characters are pretty well formed by the time you are 22. The murderer had been arrested six times in Aurora for traffic and domestic battery incidents, the last in 2008. He was arrested in 2017, in Oswego, Illinois, for disorderly conduct and property damage.  No convictions were listed during this period. He originally passed a background...

    American Thinker ^ | February 16, 2019 | Gary Gindler
    President Trump has demanded that Ilhan Omar voluntarily resign. The idea of impeachment of another Muslim Democratic congresswoman – Rashida Tlaib (Michigan) is also being actively promoted. The events surrounding Ilhan Omar, of course, are a shame for America. The anti-Semitic focus of her recent statements is obvious. However, this does not mean that President Trump has an urgent need to intervene in the process of natural political selection and demand the resignation of an anti-Semitic congresswoman. Trump's intervention in the natural self-destruction of the Democratic Party is a strategic mistake. People who in some exceptional circumstances make not rational,...

    The left wing hysteria over Trump's national emergency declaration is overflowing. He'd been threatening it. It was a campaign promise. They didn't listen. So amped to prevent Donald Trump from any success, democrats are more than willing to see Americans continue to die- being killed at the hands of illegals and from drug overdoses. Trump has tried several times to get the wall built to no avail. So today he declared the need to build the wall a national emergency. And democrats are blinded with rage. If you listen to the left wing media, you'd think declaring a national emergency was...

Though he’s not by far the only one, Republican Newt Gingrich is looking for donations from the public at large to curb the spread of Socialism by the likes of Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez travelling under the guise of (D-NY). “The radical Left’s Green New Deal is alarming. It is nothing more than an excuse to drive our nation towards Socialism. Their poorly-written proposal promises to rebuild or update nearly all buildings in the United States and almost completely eliminate air travel and non-electric cars....

    Terrorism, illegal drugs, and the flow of illegal immigrants are all weapons in the hybrid war being waged against America by those with common cause to destabilize and collapse America from within. It has been over 17 years since George Bush announced the war on terrorism and 47 years since Richard Nixon announced the war on drugs. Does anyone wonder why the most powerful nation on earth has not won either? I do. The current border war and heated debate over the building of a security wall on our southern border sounds disturbingly familiar.

    Barr inherits a department filled with anti-Trump officials that has authorized an ongoing “witch hunt” launched to negate the outcome of the 2016 election With the confirmation of William Barr as the new U.S. Attorney General, there is hope that the Department of Justice (DOJ) can regain some of its reputation that has been lost in the last few years. Once viewed as a fair and respected law enforcement agency, the DOJ is now seen as a hotbed of anti-Trump Democratic Party activism. In the 2016 election, The Hill reported that an astounding 97% of DOJ employee contributions were given...
