Avenger Endorsement

What, it’s a surprise that Tony Stark prefers Trump?

Stark is first and foremost a business man, a self made business man(yeah, he did build that). A big proponent of the 2nd Amendment (and whatever gadget he designs that makes a loud boom and kills bad guys), he wants the freedom to run his company the way he wants with as little government interference as possible. And when all is accomplished he would like to pass on his wealth to the little Iron Men in his brood without Hillary’s 55% death tax staring him in the face. Comic book heroes understand freedom and the American way, they exhibit qualities of character, honor, and courage Hillary only reads about in books, while whispering under her breath ,”Suckers”.

So the big debate tonight. No doubt it will get huge ratings, but for me, I’m a bit MEH. It was tantalizing when Trump was Trump, but now that he has official handlers and wants to act all presidential, I suspect Snooze City. The first 15 minutes will tell the tale. If he does not hit her hard (something McCain and Romney were too scared to do) over the oceans of possibilities, I will probably switch over to football. If we don’t get the bombastic Trump, the guy that verbally destroyed all the other GOP contenders, if we don’t get hair pulling and eye gouging, why bother?

What is Aleppo?

I saw it live, astounding.

Very rarely do I get to see horrific foot in mouth feats like this live, especially on MSNBC. A particularly hot night got me up early this morning. Flipped on Morning Joe since I am rarely up when he is on. This is what I saw;

I wish I could find the whole thing, including the aftermath, the slackjawed commentators in the room that were all stunned. What was missing from this little clip was the follow up question about him cutting military spending, he said he would start at 20% and work higher from there, is this guy real?

The usual wrap on Libertarians is thus, just let me smoke my weed in peace and whatever problems are out there they can all be handled by just sharing your bong. Johnson just propagated that theory in spades.

I know some here are enamored with Johnson, and I guess considering the low bar set by the other 2 clowns, anyone should be considered as an alternative, but come on. Johnson has compared his views to 85% of what Sanders believes, nobody in their right mind would want Sanders as president, so why 85% of Sanders?

But back to the room. The few Johnson supporters in the room had flat out disqualified him on the spot and a blanket of gloom and despair appeared, I know exactly how they feel, what is sane person to do?

Mika chimed in with ,”Well, it is clear, the only choice is Hillary”. Scarborough added that he knows several Republicans that will leave the top slot blank and vote Republican down the rest of the ticket. He did add that the election is not today but a few months from now, so resumes can be rehabilitated, but the stink in the room was palpable.

I have not made a decision one way of the other. Yeah, I’ve heard all the angles. One thing is clear, all republicans that vote FOR Hillary need a good beating. And for all you Trump supporters out there, quit ragging on me to support the party and start ragging on Trump to get more presidential and start engaging his brain before he opens his mouth.

I Am So Tired Of Feeling Like Charlie Brown

Yep, that’s me, and about 150 million other folks here.

We all knew the other shoe would drop, that sooner of later the sheer avalanche of corruption would finally, finally catch up with the bronchitis candidate. The drip drip drip of new revelations, new instances of deceit, duplicity, prevarication, the cover ups, and the lying, all the time lying about everything. The people would not stand for it, Congress would not stand for it, and sooner or later Obama could not hide under his desk any longer, he would just have to let Lynch do her damn job……………or so we thought.

For me it all started when I heard Trey Gowdy would chair the Benghazi hearings. A smart guy like Gowdy, no way he was going to let her get away with it. Well, she did, and to this day and I still have that smug Hillary look of ,”what a colossal waste of time, you can’t touch me and you know it” burned in my brain.

Then the email scandal, yes, scandal. The FBI had her dead to rights, no way she was going to get away with breaking federal crimes. Setting up a bathroom server against State Dept. rules, with no State Dept. oversight strictly for the purpose of co mingling Foundation and State business, going totally off grid sort of speak. No way was she going to get away with that………..well, she did.

So now I am gun shy, and when I hear stuff like this, now I get more annoyed than hopeful because I know she will be protected, no matter what she does;

Trey Gowdy’s exchange with FBI Director James Comey about his get out of jail free pass to Hillary Clinton is one for the history books. In one fell swoop, Gowdy exposed Comey and Hillary. It appears Gowdy has larger judicial plans for Crooked Hillary.

Gowdy appeared to setting Hillary Clinton up for perjury charges. Hillary previously testified about her emails to the House Benghazi Committee. Specifically Hillary said under oath that she had not sent or received classified documents on her personal email server.

When under cross examination from Trey Gowdy, Comey admitted that Hillary lied. Since she was under oath, this sets her up for being charged with perjury.

Yes, she did it, we all know she did it. But here is the rub, her democrat toadies will never allow justice to be done. Congress alone can not mete out that justice, they need the Justice Department and a grand jury, in that order. All the evidence in the world is worthless if you can’t find someone to make an arrest and bring a case to trial. Obama, through his Attorney General, will shield Hillary.

So we are left with justice unfulfilled. Did somebody here mention a banana republic?

Yeah, nobody was hurt by Hillary’s lapses in security

Something like this would end the political career of a republican, but for a leftist, it is a career booster, it seems. I wonder how Comey is feeling attributiing Clinton’s criminal activity to simple ignorance and negligence in light of more revelations like this. And it all comes right after the coordinated journolist attack from the left, just a week or two ago, where they made the case that Trump’s ways are dangerous for national security. Now we find out that this was just another case of projection as usual, because Hillary already got there first:

Hillary Clinton recklessly discussed, in emails hosted on her private server, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was executed by Iran for treason, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said Sunday.

“I’m not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman,” he said on “Face the Nation.” Cotton was speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about Iran’s nuclear program.

The senator said this lapse proves she is not capable of keeping the country safe.

Don’t expect this story to make the rounds on the national news circuit. At least not until they find a way to blame the right and Trump for it. And where is this administration’s legal arm, huh? Shouldn’t they be filing charges yet?

Physician, Heal Thyself

OK, physician’s assistant, but still, this is just too delicious for words;

A California Democrat on Wednesday launched a change.org petition calling for Donald Trump to a undergo mental health evaluation.

Rep. Karen Bass, who was a physician assistant and a clinical instructor prior to her political career, said the Republican presidential nominee may have narcissistic personality disorder, which could severely influence his actions as commander in chief.

Figures she would be from California, they get particularly delusional here on the West Coast. So if they get enough names on their dopey petition he is supposed to commit himself for a mental examination? Makes sense to me.

Here is the best part;

In her petition, Bass laid out the nine symptoms of NPD, which are a grandiose sense of self-importance, a preoccupation with fantasies of unlimited success, a belief that he or she is special and can only be understood by others with a similar status, a requirement of excessive admiration, a sense of entitlement, interpersonal exploitation, lack of empathy, envy of others and arrogant or haughty behavior.

Be honest, is there anyone here, anyone at all, that did not immediately think of our current president while reading this laundry list of NPD symptoms? No doubt in newer textbooks, when describing this malady, Obama’s face is predominantly displayed as a classic case. Where was this woman 8 years ago?

The left, they never fail to provide comedic relief.

A Pox On Both Their Houses

One constant consistently rings clear in this election cycle, whatever happens that appears newsworthy, nobody will a) take the high road, or b) will look good in the process. The latest example Trump vs. Khan cage match, a whole lot of nothing with both parties (and Clinton by proxy) ending up smelling like 3 day old fish.

First off a disclaimer, I watched none of DNC convention, like you really thought I would. The riots outside, the miles and miles of fencing to keep the animals away, the predominant barrier wall around the podium, the unruly agitators of the Bernie brigade, all made for fun reading after the fact. The only real interest I had would be to see if Hillary collapsed while walking up the 5 steps to the podium and what god awful couch like dead animal imitation pantsuit she would wear.

I read about the Khizr Khan speech, or course I smelled a rat. Knowing that Muslim deaths account for something like .02 percent of all military fatalities, it was crystal clear the angle those DNCer’s were going for, more nonsense about Trump’s anti-Muslim bigotry, yawn. Nice touch him waving his pocket Constitution around, too bad he does not believe a word of it, more on that in a bit. But this was clearly theater, and on a better more disciplined candidate, it would have been water off a duck’s back. But when you are Trump, anything can send you into anger induced twitter war.

The DNC threw out some junk, Trump bit on it, and they both suck for it.

Further review of this Khan guy revealed much;

Khizr Khan, the Muslim Gold Star father that the mainstream media and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been using to criticize Donald J. Trump, has deep ties to the government of Saudi Arabia—and to international Islamist investors through his own law firm. In addition to those ties to the wealthy Islamist nation, Khan also has ties to controversial immigration programs that wealthy foreigners can use to essentially buy their way into the United States—and has deep ties to the “Clinton Cash” narrative through the Clinton Foundation.

Not a big problem, many folks are beholding to the Clintons, deeply mired in their pay of play games. Naturally Khan likes his rice bowl, and does not want it messed with, which is exactly what would happen if Trump is to be believed with his stance on overhauling immigration standards. OK, so Khan is a Hillary cheerleader as well, nothing wrong with that. But that whole Constitution waiving thing, what was up with that? Turns out it was just a prop. According to him, the Constitution is for suckers;

“The Shari’ah-was completed during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammed, in the Quran and Sunnah. This brings up an important fact which is generally overlooked, that the invariable and basic rules of Islamic Law are only those prescribed in the Shari’ah (Quran and Sunnah), which are few and limited,” Khan continues to write. “All other juridical works which have been written during more than thirteen centuries are very rich and indispensable, but they must always be subordinated to the Shari’ah and open to reconsideration by all Muslims.”

Oh, and this gem;

“to Muslims, the Quran being the very word of God, it is the absolute authority from which springs the very conception of legality and every legal obligation.”

Clearly a plant and a dupe, all this could have been ignored, dismissed for what it was, but nope, The Donald is not that smart. Never one to allow a perceived insult to go unpunished he has to marginalize their suffering and even go after the wife, will he ever learn?

This even reflects poorly on Manafort. Khan’s speech got huge reviews, Trump has handlers for this.In a matter of minutes a Lexus-Nexus search could have provided enough ammo to counter, that is what he is for, to keep his boss out of trouble. Is there a more impossible thankless job out there than trying to keep Trump out of trouble?

Its a rebellion against the establishment you fools!

So the donkeys had day one of their freak show, and it looks like things went much better than I expected. We had the usual DNC operatives with bylines tell us all last week that the RNC was in disarray and that the whole event was a freak show, only for the democrats to really deliver one to us. On day one, no less.

Anyway, I could care less what those people do to each other. They deserve all the ill that comes their way. I suspect that we will find out some doozies as people get to read these emails and see what the machine that enforces PC culture and demands sainthood from everyone else really operates. I guess this is what social justice really looks like. But I am glad to see that this is going on.

People are turning against the establishment because that establishment has let us down. The establishment won’t do any soul searching: they will accuse the people of being the problem in the first place. And while they may indirectly be right, especially when talking about the people angry at the democrat establishment, these people are the spawns they created with their divide and conquer tactics. Identity politics has create some of the most narcissistic and broken people out there, and now they are rebelling against the very people that helped them come into being.

Priceless!

Color me surprised!

The left projects. They accuse their enemies of all sorts of vile and indecent behavior, not because it happens, but because they are always the one doing that. Remember the constant narrative from the DNC operatives with bylines (the media) around the racist and violent Tea Baggers? Not a single incident of misbehavior or racism out of the slew of shit the media threw at the wall hoping it would stick ever did, because when it comes to criminality and abuses, the left is the group that owns that space. Maybe you have missed the recent spate of hacked DNC emails that were released. They show the democrats for what they are. And in typical collectivist fashion – like our resident troll here does all the time – the DNC scumbags are desperate to deflect the real conversation we should be having about how anyone could trust people that are willing to do this sordid stuff should be trusted with power.

Don’t worry, Clinton’s campaign manager has a CM level deflection: the Russians are behind it because they want Trump. A 3rd grader can see through that mountain illogic. The Russians – like every other country with a hostile relationship to the US and quite a few of those pretending to be friends but being anything but that – want Clinton as president. With all the shit they got off her unsecured servers and by penetrating other systems from the wide open door that hack left them, not to mention all the money they have given her to buy favors, they have so much dirt on her that she will basically end up their stooge (which she already might be). It is quite funny to me that it took the target off everyone that secretly is a Clinton supporter’s ire for that fact to be pointed out. And the Clintons already have a record of selling America down the river to personally enrich themselves (research Bill’s connection to the Chinese military and what a few measly million of illegal Chinese secret service money to the campaign fund of WJC got China and you will see why China was able to leap 6 decades of military technology in a span of a decade). The current Clinton candidate is making her husband’s transgressions look tame. What you have not heard any of that? I Googled it for those of you that seem to be challenged getting the facts. Of course, if you are a typical leftist and have the same reaction vampires do when confronted with holy symbols, holy water, or sunlight, when confronted with facts, giving you the facts is meaningless: you don’t care about them.

The bar being lowered by the information we glean into the people running the DNC and directing operations from these leaks go on and on. Anti-Semitism? Definitely! Coordination between the DNC and the media to help Hilary and attack here opposition? Do you even have to ask? Rigged primaries? Hell yes (lucky for me the republicans didn’t succeed at their effort to do that)! Trying to make Trump supporters look like racists? Really? Wasn’t it obvious from the people that were the most desperate to tell you that was the case? If we are lucky we will finally also find the emails coordinating the DNC & Obama admin’s agenda with the whole BLM movement to turn out the vote in November. And in case you have not been following the news and realized that these people are just above the law, you are going to just as sorely disappointed as the Bernie Sanders people will be. Accountability has not existed under this administration, and it certainly will not under a Clinton administration.

Oh, I am sure the media and the DNC will keep pushing real hard on how the problems that have caused the rise of Trump are that the people that buy into his “fascist rhetoric” (that is code for any subject the PC crowd needs to shut down the conversation on) are all unwashed stupid racist, misogynistic, homophobic, xenophobes, because admitting that the issue is that our leaders have betrayed us, are both incompetent and could care less about the people that elected them, unless it makes for some positive PR, and we the people that are paying attention have had enough, doesn’t play well with the elite that look down on us.

I say so again: this election is a revolt by those of us that have realized that the establishment is screwing us all. The big difference between the democrats and republicans is that the democrats are on a fast track to wreck the country and the planet.

Finally, Some Theater

Not being a Trump supporter, my interest in the convention has mainly been about what the speakers that I already admire have to say and to witness the inevitable clashes occurring when flawed candidates (and their supporters) get in the same room. Yes, it’s not over but I must say that so far this event has been short on drama and long on precision and efficiency. We had minimal rumbles the first day, “conscience” voters wanting their vote “unbound”, but that was ruthlessly squashed, so all that was left was how principled leaders were going to tailor their support for an unsavory candidate, to stay true to their beliefs without the need for a power washing in the end. And everything was running smoothly, until last night, enter “Lying Ted”.

This story has more layers than an onion;

1) Ted is a weasel for not honoring his pledge to support the candidate.
2) Ted would rather have Hillary win, expects Hillary to win, thus aligning himself with the #nevertrump group by admonishing vote your conscience, the same tactic used for the unbound the vote crowd.
3) Ted will not only not support Trump, but will keep Trump’s failings front and center, namely the attacks on Ted’s wife and father, reminding any that will listen how vicious the nominated candidate really is.
4) Ted is so dumb that he walked right into a Trump trap. The Trump people had a copy of the Cruz speech ahead of time, they knew Ted was going to weenie out of his pledge so they keyed the faithful in the crowd ahead of time to let him have it, to boo and chase him off the stage. If Trump supporters are anything, they are both faithful and loud, even Heidi had to run for her life.
5)Ted is so duplicitous that he had already made it known that he is running again in 2020, even with a Trump win, a backhanded attempt to freeze his supporters to not support Trump guaranteeing his defeat.

Let’s face it, nobody looks good in all this. We are reminded how vile Trump was in going after Ted’s family, we are reminded what a selfish narcissist Cruz is in making everything about him, and we are reminded what a pussy Kasich is in not even showing up at his own convention.

Pense looked good last night, he is a good man, but will bring little to the table. The Trump kids were terrific. I would like to see Eric enter politics, he is polished and passionate.

Twice this month my wife has asked me if I am going to vote for Trump, my response both times ,”Ask me in November”. I think she will vote for Trump but I am a harder sell. As mentioned before in other posts, I do not need to be reminded how disastrous Hillary will be, but I have little patience for those that say if I sit it out I am voting for Hillary.

My prognostications have changed little, I still think Trump is going to get creamed and I can’t tell you how sick and tired I am at voting for substandard candidates, it sucks. But my vote has to be earned. I get that the whole voting process is viewed like a scale, putting the positives on one side and the negatives on the other and see which side weighs more. Trump is different, his positives and negatives are more layered, less obvious. People say we need him for his SCOTUS picks, do we really know what kind of judges he will put up, and what judges will get confirmed if the GOP looses it’s majority in the Senate? People say we need him to protect the 2nd Amendment, Trump has never revealed himself to be a big gun advocate. People say we need him for his wall, really? You think a wall will get built or 12 million illegals are going to get deported? We need him to fight ISIS and keep us safe, still waiting for the particulars on that.

In closing, a few questions posed;

Is loving your country enough?
Has Trump ever showed the judgement, patience and prudence required for captaining the most powerful country on earth?
Has he ever showed the humility required in surrounding himself with more qualified more knowledgeable people to get the job done, has he ever showed remorse or contrition in making errors of judgment in the past?

I have yet to see any humility, compassion,measured response before acting and a reticence to act emotionally, a true understanding of the dignity of the office. I hope I do see all these things before November.

Banana republic it is..

If you doubted we had a gangster government, where the laws of the land applied to the peons and not the credentialed pompous inept but full of themselves elite, doubt no more:

In an unusual move, FBI agents working the Hillary Clinton email case had to sign a special form reminding them not to blab about the probe to anyone unless called to testify.

Sources said they had never heard of the “Case Briefing Acknowledgment” form being used before, although all agents must initially sign nondisclosure agreements to obtain security clearance.

“This is very, very unusual. I’ve never signed one, never circulated one to others,” said one retired FBI chief.

An FBI agent currently on the job admitted, “I have never heard of such a form. Sounds strange.”

Meanwhile, FBI agents expressed their “disappointment” over FBI Director James Comey’s decision not to recommend charges against Clinton, sources close to the matter told The Post.

“FBI agents believe there was an inside deal put in place after the Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton tarmac meeting,” said one source.

Another source from the Justice Department was “furious” with Comey, saying he’s “managed to piss off right and left.”

Ya think? After 8 years of Obama doing this sort of crap, I guess you can call it his third term if Hillary wins. This woman should be making license plates in either an orange or pin striped suit, with a tattoo of he owner done with a needle and ink on her flabby ass saying she is the property of some bull dyke.
