You Still Need A Sweater

It may be nearing the end of February, but it’s still pretty cold and you still need a sweater. Fortunately, sweaters suit the season and heat things up very nicely indeed. 😉

Man Bites Dog

Posted in Politics on February 21st, 2017

President Donald J. TrumpAs should be expected, the biggest news in America, possibly the Civilized World, is President Donald J. Trump. And one of the evolving stories center to this is the President’s refusal to bow to the Lamestream Enemedia. Given that these kingmakers – and failed, would-be queenmakers – aren’t used to being questioned by anyone, this is definitely a “Man Bites Dog” news moment and of paroxysmal bouts of outrage, fear, and denial.

Our President’s latest strike against the leftwing propaganda engines was fired off via Twitter on February 17th.

The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!”

— President Donald J. Trump

Yes! A man bit the dogs and the dogs are howling. That’s newsworthy indeed and gratifying to read about as the “press” and their liberal followers explode over it. Definitely a case of “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.

Man Bites Dog

Oh, and how they’re yipping, yapping and howling over this as they tear the clothes and beat their breasts over this “horrible slur” against them, as if they hadn’t already though their bias, hate, and mendacity already beggared their own reputations and betrayed and thus lost the trust of we, the People.

Oh yes! The media personalities and their always so useful and beholden shills have been quick to cry, “That’s how dictators get started,” and to claim to all and sundry who might listen and give credence to them that President Trump is shutting down the media.

No, while it’s true that that’s how dictators get started, it’s also how revolutionaries get started. They speak truth to power and they do so boldly, frankly, unapologetically, and with the candor that comes from the righteousness of their cause. And that is what President Trump is doing, speaking truth to power – speaking truth the undeserving holders and wielders of a vast, pervasive, and manipulative power that they have sorely misused, abused, and corrupted.

And that, my fellow Americans, is a Man Bites Dog moment in history.

The Liberal Argument

The Liberal Argument

My fellow Americans, for both your safety and sanity I’d strongly suggest disengaging from- and not bothering to argue with Liberals and Progressives or the minority sorts they pander to- and enable. If you make your point, their counterpoint tends these day to be a blunt object at best.

That’ not to say that all of our domestic enemies are actually dangerous to any individual. Most are crippled by their condition and not truly a threat if handled correctly. However, a growing number of them are a clear and present danger to any individual American who disagrees with them openly and will, with little understandable provocation, attack. Hence, it is best for all of us to not engage with them.

As is all such cases, whenever it is possible, reduce the threat by disengaging. If, however, that is or becomes impossible without further endangering yourself and your interests or those of your family or people, stand your ground.
