Trashing Trump: A venomous end-of-life political family business

February 9, 2019

In a classless funeral fad, faith and reverence take a back seat to bile spewing and settling scores

The scenario is not one most people choose to contemplate, but it would seem reasonable that the last hours of our lives could be better spent in loving reflection with those we hold dear than in bitter recriminations.

U.S. Rep. John Dingell, Jr. died Thursday at age 92. Prior to drawing his last breath, we are told the liberal Democrat dictated parting remarks to his wife, which included denigrating President Trump —- though not mentioning him by name:

“In our modern political age, the presidential bully pulpit seems dedicated to sowing division and denigrating, often in the most irrelevant and infantile personal terms, the political opposition.”

In 1932, his father John Dingell Sr. was elected the first representative of Michigan’s newly created 15th District. In 1955, John Sr. died and John Jr. won a special election to succeed him. He was ultimately reelected 29 times, serving nearly 60 years and acknowledged as the longest serving congressman in U.S. history. Between them, he and his father represented the southeastern Michigan area for 80 years.

But the Dingell Democrat dynasty doesn’t end there. When his health declined and he finally retired, he ensured the Dingell name would continue to dangle over the state. His wife Debbie Dingell — 28 years his junior — won the election to succeed him in November 2014, as the first non-widowed woman to immediately follow her husband in Congress.

Debbie, a former Republican strategically turned Democrat, is the one who took the dictated anti-Trump message before her husband closed his eyes for the final time — making sure it reached an audience.

In a similar rendition, before John McCain died, he gave instructions specifying who would be invited to his funerals — he had three.  President Trump and First Lady Melania didn’t make the A-List.  They were specifically uninvited by the still resentful man who never attained the presidency.  Although Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner came to show their respects in Washington, D.C., they are now being blasted by mega Meghan McCain, who says she’ll never forgive them for attending. She added, she hopes she made them uncomfortable as she gave her eulogy at her father’s funeral stating, “We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly.”

“I really wanted made very clear that the Trumps have beef with me then and in the words of Cardi B, they’re gonna have beef with me forever and I’m not gonna forget,” McCain added, sounding like a street thug.

Ed Supe Kathy Hoffman proves too much is never enough

February 6, 2019

Hoffman’s ‘State of Education’ speech demands additional teacher’s salary increases, as she thumbs her nose at 20% raises

It was easy enough to miss — but Democrat Kathy Hoffman, Arizona’s newly elected Superintendent of Public Instruction, delivered her fledgling State of Education speech.

A committed leftist, her campaign of smoke and mirrors promised a sound education benefiting Arizona’s school children, many of whom are in ESL classes and not up to speed in the basics. Yet Hoffman regards sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, including clear policies, support groups, and activities for LGBTQ students on the top of her list.  Her campaign website stated, “Welcoming family diversity promotes exclusivity and must be a priority for our state.”

Hoffman’s intransigent opposition to charter schools is abundantly clear, with these irrational words addressing her fears, “I do not support the expansion of ESA vouchers and will be voting NO on Prop 305 come November. If passed, Prop 305 would further defund our public schools. This is terrifying.”

The proposition was ultimately defeated by the public school teachers’ union activists* who couldn’t compete with the proliferation of excellent Charter Schools and want to deny parents choice in the education of their own children. While public school teachers went out on strike, none of the charter or parochial school teachers joined their Socialist-led parade.

Paid month’s long maternity and paternity leave is another of the policies Hoffman advocates, saying such plans would help retain teachers. Apparently working a part-time job, with lengthy holiday vacation days and summer’s off isn’t enough of an enticement.

Kathy Hoffman notes she “proudly voted to walk out” with her fellow #REDSforEd striking teachers who abandoned a reported 840,000 Arizona students for over a week in violation of their contractual agreements as they followed Socialist Pied Piper Noah Karvelis a 24-year-old hip hop music teacher and avowed Socialist. She says she was “inspired by unity within the movement.”

Lacking any leadership experience, Hoffman has spent more time as a student than as a teacher, having taught preschool for two years and two additional years as a years as a speech therapist.

After initially rejecting the outrageous demands for a 20% pay increase for their part-time jobs, Gov. Doug Ducey caved in to their threats while lying about the lack of a tax increase, using inventive language to deceive Arizona taxpayers.

We’ve been had…by politicians of both parties.

Dems OK barbaric infanticide, Republicans vote for life

January 31, 2019

Sanity still exists in the Virginia House of Delegates. On Tuesday Virginia Republicans rejected H.B. 2491, known as the Repeal Act, which would have repealed restrictions on late term abortions — even after a mother went into labor. The admission of the bill’s sponsor, Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran, of the ghoulishness of the procedure was the death knell for the bill allowing for aborting human infants minutes from birth.

A House subcommittee voted 5-3 to table the reprehensible proposed legislation. The vote was along party lines, with all of the Democrats voting for infanticide and all of the Republicans voting for life.

Tran is a Buddhist, born in Vietnam shortly after the end of the war. With the devastating loss of life so prevalent and causing her own family to flee to the United States, it would seem she’d have a special affinity for the sanctity of life — even more so as the mother of four children. But leftist politics obscures rational thought.

Todd Gilbert, Virginia’s Republican House Majority Leader, who has been honored as  Legislator of the Year and Defender of Liberty, questioned Tran about the bill during a hearing Monday. He asked Tran if a woman who has physical signs she is about to give birth could request an abortion if a physician alleged the birth could impair her mental health.

“Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth — she has physical signs that she is about to give birth. Would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified — she’s dilating?” he asked.

“Mr. Chairman, that would be a decision that the doctor, the physician and the woman would make at that point,” Tran replied.

 “I understand that,” Gilbert, a former prosecutor, replied. “I’m asking if your bill allows that.”

With not a moment’s hesitation, Tran replied: “My bill would allow that, yes.”

Last week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed S2796 into law. The Reproductive Health Act, is a bill permitting abortion through the end of the third trimester. So proud was Cuomo of what he glorified as the “Woman’s Equality Law,” he even made sure the World Trade Center was bathed in celebratory pink lights. What’s not to celebrate about killing your own newborn as he or she takes its first breath?


Jeff Flake: A shameless spectacle finds leftist perch

January 30, 2019

Just as Pinocchio’s nose grew longer as he told ever more preposterous lies, former Sen. Jeff Flake’s has grown further leftward as he has curried the favor with the anti-Trump media. Breitbart carries the report.

For a man who was unable to run for reelection after a single senate term due to bottom-dragging 18 percent approval ratings in his home state, it’s absurd, though typically Flakey, that he would announce that he’s not going to mount a 2020 challenge to President Trump. Even his kinfolk in his rural Arizona birthplace of Snowflake — named in part for his great-great-grandfather, are no fans of Flake’s vile rhetoric. Most support the president.

Flake is taking his rabid vitriol on the road as a new hire of the left-wing CBS News network. There’s nothing quite as compelling as a defector, ready to turn on the party under whose banner he ran and the Republican President of the United States for the proverbial few pieces of silver.

While trying to give himself cover, he groused that the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee “are so melded” that they are “trying to do everything they can to squelch any opposition.”

Flake, who has bragged he still stays in touch with Barack Obama, says he prefers BO’s tone to President Trump’s. He’s not referring to volume; it’s the liberal content that grabs the Flake.

Flake’s ego outweighs his conscience to the point he’s back to hitting the bottle —- of peroxide, as he returns to tinting his locks golden again, while moving to get camera ready.

His time-off time could have been better spent with a good surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty. An added benefit beyond the obvious?  Flake would get more oxygen to his brain, something he could definitely use.


Roe v. Wade: Science now provides the truth

January 18, 2019

March for Life holds its annual gathering in Washington D.C. today. This year’s theme is, “Unique From Day One.”

This informative commentary,Why Science Strengthens the Pro-Life Argument,” by Andrea Picciotti-Bayer, is definitely worth your time.

Scientific and medical advances have impacted the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision in ways that could not be envisioned in 1973. Ultrasound wondrously shows fetal development, a beating heart and an undeniable, unique, human life —- even allowing parents to know the sex of their preborn child. Familial DNA, telling our generational story, is affixed from conception.

Agents of depriving life to preborn humans are celebrating the legal ability to destroy it. A breakfast event, held at the San Diego Hilton Resort and Spa advertises itself as the “46th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade Breakfast Celebration.” It’s hosted by a group known by the dubious moniker, “Coalition for Reproductive Justice.”  The question of whether it’s just to murder the defenseless within what should be the safest place on earth —- their mother’s womb —- is of no consequence to the celebrants who sell event tables for up to $2500. The San Diego “celebration” is one among many across the country.

Undeniably, life begins at conception. Medical advances now allow successful surgeries to be performed on preborn babies, providing incontrovertible evidence that life begins long before birth and what abortion proponents describe as a ‘clump of cells” is actually a growing baby whose life matters.

Web MD provides this spectacular slide show titled, “Fetal development month by month,” detailing a baby’s growth from conception to birth.


Mealy-mouthed Lindsey undermines Pres. Trump

January 14, 2019

Lindsey Graham, a dedicated McCain loyalist, can’t figure out which way he swings without his good buddy to accompany him down the dark senate corridors, while whispering not-so-sweet nothings in his ear.

Just days ago Graham was stepping out in a fit of pseudo boldness, advising President Trump to hang tough and not cave to the petulant Pelosi and unscrupulous shakedowner Schumer. In this statement, Graham advised Pres. Trump, “Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier — even if the government were to be reopened — virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier. It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier.”

Now he advises Trump to cut a deal with the intransigent leftists.

Appearing onFox News Sunday,” (video) Graham urged the president to reopen the partial government shutdown for three weeks to allow lawmakers to negotiate.

Talking out of both sides of his mouth, Graham said, “It really does perplex me how you expect this to end when you tell the president of the United States, you can’t get $1 for a wall when in the past Democrats have appropriated billions for the wall. What’s he supposed to do, just give in? He’s not going to give in.”

Then in the next breath, Graham pressed Trump to do exactly that, saying, “I would urge him to open up the government for a short period of time — like three weeks — before he pulls the plug, see if we can get a deal. If we can’t at the end of three weeks, all bets are off — see if he can do it by himself with the emergency powers. That is my recommendation.”

As Graham pursues an agenda markedly different from the conservative, Trump-supporting base — pushing the farcical DACA and expanded Temporary Protected Status currently estimated to exceed 400,000, it’s important to remember exactly who Lindsey Graham is.

In July 2015, Graham called GOP frontrunner Donald Trump a “jackass” during an interview on CNN. By December, Graham suspended his lifeless presidential campaign, due to lack of support and dismal polling and quickly endorsed former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. When it became clear Donald Trump would be the Republican presidential nominee, Graham, emulating McCain and joined by Flake, announced that he would not vote for either Trump or Hillary Clinton, stating on CNN, “I think Donald Trump is going to places where very few people have gone and I’m not going with him.”

Graham is obviously not someone Pres. Trump can rely on. His advice is worthless. With friends like Lindsey Graham, who needs enemies?


More bull from the Senate’s “Sell Out Six”

January 11, 2019

Leftist media mischaracterize border wall as “Trump’s.”  It’s OURS!

Here we go again. Compromise to Republicrats and Leftists always includes provisions for granting amnesty to illegal invaders.  It’s the old song and dance that John McCain and Jon Kyl peddled for years, followed by the same two-step with performers McCain and Flake, as we noted back in 2013. McCain minced no words telling us we had to accept amnesty.

In its latest incarnation, there’s a new component added to the mix. It’s the reliable magician’s trick of misdirection, which falls flat when wily senators rather than David Copperfield are on stage. Cunning and deceit are not showstoppers.  Americans are weary of the porous border, its accompanying crime and the lies being proffered to cover the deception.

Six RINO Senators including Lindsey Graham,(SC); Thom Tillis,(NC); Lamar Alexander,(TN); Rob Portman,(OH); Lisa Murkowski,(AK); and Susan Collins,(ME) are swaying and swooning to the ludicrous amnesty and farcical DACA tune, as they play to their business class campaign donors desirous of cheap labor.

Then Presto! Graham has an epiphany, issuing this statement chiding House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for “her refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier — even if the government were to be reopened”… opining, “It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier.”

Earlier Graham concluded that under a potential deal “the president gets his security funding and can add some things to the mix that would draw some bipartisan support.” 

Let’s get this single fact straight: Making deals with the devil makes you a demonic pawn.  Graham, a member of the infamousGang of Eight,” was integral to the many versions of McComprehensive Immigration Reform, despised by American citizens. Their frustration set the stage for the presidency of Donald J. Trump, who fully comprehended the level of discontent and remains keenly aware that border security is national security.  

Graham obviously missed the fact that Pelosi said there will be no funding for any type of border barrier — although she does make her priorities clear. The ability to fund killing human babies remains paramount, yet national security is “immoral.”

It’s time to put the numbers in perspective. The Immigration Reform Law Institute’s 2017 study revealed illegal immigration to the U.S. costs federal, state and local taxpayers a staggering net cost of $116 billion a year — an increase of $16 billion compared to previous estimates. Consider the relative costs as the Washington Post reports today that “another caravan of illegal invaders is forming in Honduras, with plans to embark next week on a journey that will once again test the immigration policies of Mexico and the United States.”
