I’ve tried

31 Oct

being nice. It doesn’t work with the Left. Romney was a truly nice guy. I didn’t always agree with him, but always agreed that he was a good guy.

Well, you know where nice guys finish? Last. And that is exactly where Romney finished. Last.

I’m not into nice guys anymore. If the Left were going to play by Marquess de Queensberry rules, it would be a different story. But they’re not. That ship has sailed. I want a fighter.

It’s pretty dang obvious:

31 Oct

Manafort was indicted because he was an easy mark.

We need to understand well that this has nothing to do with Trump. The purported crimes all took place LONG before Manafort was even involved with the Trump campaign! And Manafort lasted all of four months and change in the Trump campaign. The monetary amounts are indeed staggering, but envy is not a basis for criminal charges. Not in a free country, anyway.

And the charges against Manafort are weak.  Andrew McCarthy is a former Federal Prosecutor for such things, and he pretty well knows what he is talking about. Yeah, weak.

I guess Mueller felt he had to do something to justify his existence. So he charged Manafort with the “crime” (and it was one) of not filling out the right paperwork. He had to disclose he was a lobbyist fr a former Russian country and didn’t until a few months ago. Please don’t misunderstand me–Manafort almost for sure did this for nefarious reasons. But no one gets chucked into Federal prison for such things. Manafort is worried, I’m sure. But I doubt he is panicked. Trump is laughing at the Bozo that is Mueller. As should we all… Mueller hasn’t laid a glove on Trump.

But the real reason behind Mueller’s behavior is NOT to bag Manafort. It is to squeeze him in hopes he will provide actionable intelligence on Trump. Mueller’s goal was not to get Manafort, it was always to get Trump.

Of course, there is plenty to go after on the Hillary side. I’m not at all sure that Mueller would go in that direction. Even if he did it would not be a repudiation of his very real weaknesses. I mean, I would love to see Mueller go after Hillary herself, but it’s not like that would make him a decent human being. Besides, we are not likely to be at risk for that! But maybe. Hopefully.

No, he’s after Trump and Trump only. THAT is why there are charges against Manafort for things (allegedly) done shortly after the turn of the century (and long before Manafort joined the Trump team).

I think the Papadopoulis case has far more potential for damage to Trump. But even that one rather exonerates Trump in most of the important facts. I think that one also fails to hurt Trump and is pretty weak, and that one is far stronger in terms of hurting Trump than the Manafort one.

So we’ll see how the future unfolds. As of now, Mueller’s got nothing.

 
 

You mean

31 Oct

that journalists like Maggie Haberman are not honest? What are you going to tell me next, that water is wet or the sky is blue? What revelations! It is all just so unbelievable.

Don’t be a blamed fool. Please.

I think there is a general loss of confidence, and that is because certain people have been manifestly dishonest. These include (but are not limited to):

  • Mueller is manifestly scummy and unreliable
  • The media are manifestly scummy and unreliable
  • Democrats in general are manifestly scummy and unreliable
  • RINOs are manifestly scummy and unreliable

I don’t thing any of those point are not very obvious–they all are both categorically true and almost universally accepted as fact. No wonder Trump won.

Regular people are sick to death of this crap.

Saying

that it doesn’t matter that Hillary funded the Trump smear campaign is nonsensical. Totally nonsensical.

Yeah, of course it matters!

Yes, Milbank

31 Oct

is a jerk. But there is another, bigger, issue in play. And here it is:

Milbank hasn’t changed. He was always this way, either too stupid or to venal to stand up for what is right. Yet YOU believed and even defended him! He is the prototypical MSM hack, and he always has been. But you didn’t even know!

Next time you feel compelled to defend the MSM as a reliable source, remember this.

Be honest, YOU were snookered. So just how do you know that your current favored talking head (or general source) is telling you the truth? Dana Milbank was shown to be a turd who disregarded the truth. Dan Rather has been categorically shown to be biased. Even Walter Cronkite was quite problematic. The NY Times is regularly wrong, and the both have to make frequent corrections and are exposed by other entities.

So just how do you know you are getting the truth? What is your measure? Just why should I believe them over a dog-faced baboon? Just what ground are they standing on?

The next

30 Oct

big deal.

We have already seen some fluttering about a child sex abuse scandal in Hollywood. There have already been prurient stories about Nickelodeon and “iCarly.” Elijah Wood  (Frodo in TLOTR) has talked about pedophilia being prominent in the industry.

But if this really breaks (and it looks as though it very well might), Hollywood is toast. Think NFL on, uhm, steroids (OK, bad wording). People will ditch Hollywood in a heartbeat. The film industry is already walking with a cane and a heavy limp. This may just put it in a coma on life support. Plus, we are starting to see both foreign and domestic (from a different pipeline) films on the upswing. Hollywood’s 1950s lock on films is starting to slip.

There is a

30 Oct

good reason why fool like Corker and Flake are leaving the Senate: They are losers.

They know very well that regular people are mightily torqued at clowns like them, and they would almost certainly lose a contested primary. This is not them being “noble,” it is them putting their tails firmly between their legs and slinking away. Of course, they will be the biggest butt-heads they can until they are (thankfully) gone. Well, they can’t be gone soon enough for me!

Flake is not a hero, he is a lilly-livered coward. If he cared one bit about what he says he does he would rally folks of a similar opinion and fight. But he won’t because he knows he will lose. He knows his position is incredibly weak and that he has little following. People are NOT siding with him because he is obviously wrong. He just has no case. It’s all hat and no cattle. People in Arizona are sick of his brand of nonsense, and they know he is full of crap. Get this weak crap out of here! LOSER!

I was critical of Bush. I have been critical of Trump. But I tell the truth, and the truth is Flake and Corker are total cowards and losers. Be off with you both!

(And I say this as a person whose mother is good friends with the Flake family and in fact worked closely with one for years)

 

Yeah, the VA

race has truly exposed a big problem for the Democrats.

The Democrats just have no answer for the Republican criticisms. Now the problem may not mean immediate crushing of the Democrats,  but it is a real vulnerability for them.

your news.

And do you swallow it hook, line, and sinker? Yes you do.

I don’t want to hear another stinking’ word about how the alternative media is not trustworthy in comparison to the mainstream media! Not another word!

Just because YOU are regularly suckered by them doesn’t mean I am!

I am not a bloomin’ fool…

There was a very good

30 Oct

reason for the Trump “dossier.” This kind of “dirty tricks” crap makes Richard Nixon look like a piker! No wonder Trump won. This almost guarantees a second term for him. It may be a generation before there is another Democrat President. The DNC has shown itself to be quite dirty. ALL who come into contact with the Clintons are similarly sullied. And if I were running, I would hammer the crap out of them for this.

If there were any justice in the world, Hillary would be in prison…
