Competence Current Events

OK, so I watched

the Tucker Carlson Trump interview and I have some thoughts:

The main issue that struck me is how competent Trump is. I had thought he was just a celebrity who did some good things. But no, he is very solid–great knowledge and really good sense. He’s the kind of guy who, when he drives, allows you to sleep because you feel comfortable that he can handle whatever comes up.

But if Biden were driving you would be wide-eyed and white-knuckled! So there was this air of competence about Trump that was strangely comforting. I honestly didn’t expect that.

I was similarly struck by his common sense. I guess I expected all bluster, and indeed there was some of that (though not much), But the whole thing was very eye-opening. And watching/hearing the other Republican candidates debate debate at the same time, I understood why Trump didn’t participate. He would ONLY be sullied by their dwarfish antics.

I had originally thought that Trump should join the others in the debate. I was WRONG! Trump did the right thing, here.

Here is the interview:

Before you get all solidified in a position, you really need to to watch this interview. Get the data! There is a good reason that Trump has an astronomical, insurmountable lead over other other Republican hopefuls. They look like fractious Lilliputians compared to Trump!

Competence Foolishness

Pretty impressive.

A strong performance.

DeSantis is solid. It was really stupid of Trump to burn that VP bridge! And why oh why? Why on earth did Trump do that? That is just foolish!


Oh yeah,

there is good reason to fear!


Focus on

competency, not credentials!

Chumps Competence Irrationality

Aren’t we tired

of this juvenile bull crap yet?

I sure am. Are YOU going to stand up to this tantruming idiot behavior?

These folks need a little consequence to their actions! Freakin’ LOONS! And those consequences should be very public.

BUT, there is a silver lining. These folks are wackos, and the difference between the loony Left and normal people is stark. Plus, now we see (again) what DeSantis is made of:

They tried to ding DeSantis but they ended up showing how he handles unexpected incidents. He’s the guy who remains calm in a crisis. He’s the one you want leading the country through a tough time. Thanks, ladies. They made the point that DeSantis supporters already know – he’s a natural leader. He looked as though he quickly assessed that the women were not trying to harm him, just interrupting his speech, and he continued accordingly.

Competence Culture

She absolutely

killed it! I had never really considered her as a candidate, but I was wrong not to.

My response? We aren’t the aggressors in this [the culture war]. We are on defense. We aren’t demanding the overturning of Western culture, the Left is. The Left is pushing male crotches in the faces of kids, encouraging them to visit Grindr, and demanding they be sterilized and mutilated out of “compassion.”

Competence Fighting Back

Well, you know,

that’s true.

It’s time to get serious!

THIS is a big reason to get rid of that barnacle and “post turtle” Ronna ROMNEY McDaniel!

Post turtle:

An old Rancher is talking about politics with a young man from the city. He compares a politician to a “post turtle.” The young man doesn’t understand and asks him what a post turtle is.

The old man says, “When you’re driving down a country road and you see a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a post turtle. You know he didn’t get up there by himself. He doesn’t belong there; you wonder who put him there; he can’t get anything done while he’s up there; and you just want to help the poor thing down.”

Ronna ROMNEY McDaniel is a post turtle…

Competence Epic fail

So do we

still trust medical opinion? It seems to be crumbling, a victim of wokeism. That plus the Internet.

And the problem is, this is not the first time medical providers have followed a “trendy” but unscientific and damaging path, and the reservoir of public trust is starting to run dry. I see it all the time as people talk about their medical providers. Some patients will shy like a rearing horse at any sign of “woke.”

Surveying the mad rush of physicians to embrace fads forces one to wonder at the lack of moral grounding in medical education. We need not travel back to the heyday of the eugenics movement in the early 20th century to see how imprudently much of the medical profession has faddishly pursued dangerous conceits: lobotomies for mental illness, “repressed memory” of child abuse, mass estrogen prescriptions for post-menopausal women, opioids for any manner of pain relief, experimentation and over-prescription of psychotropic medicines with serious aftereffects, and, now, “sex change” surgery and administration of puberty-blocking drugs. After all this, should courts ever pay attention to briefs submitted by medical “experts”?

Wokeism has at least hastened the death of trust in experts and expertise. A therapeutic bond must be earned, not merely given as a matter of course out of awe of a medical degree.

I remember having lunch with a bunch of judges and potential court-ordered experts. We were all sitting around a big table in a conference room.

One Psychologist there started spouting off on some cock-and-bull Freudian explanation and how she charges more than double for court work than the rest of us did because she is so dang good.

You could almost see the judges rolling their eyes. I spent a TON of time in court after that, but I never saw that psychologist again! Nor did I ever see, over the next 15 years, any reports by her.

And many of US just roll our eyes when “woke” physicians and other medical experts start talking. Same thing.


I really like

Chip Roy. And I have for some time. I think he is a dark horse for President in 2024.


Oh, and you

can BET that there will be a battle royale!

The way “Biden” and his merry minions have spent gives drunken sailors a bad name! This crap has GOT to stop.

So, we need to ask what the nuts and bolts are of what will happen if the “debt ceiling” is NOT raised. Maybe there are programs that need to be pared back a bit. Ya think?

No doubt this is a painful way to do it. Better would be just to gradually draw down spending, but NO, the Democrats (and RINOs) wouldn’t take that obvious, good-sense measure.

It is the Democrat Harry Reid/Jan. 6 committee problem in spades. Dem thinking is notoriously short-term, and when the inevitable comes, it roars back with a vengeance! Usually, the “easy way” has very bad long-term outcomes. THAT is a lesson Democrats have chronically failed to learn.

Oh, and here’s the other part—within a week. So now we are looking at frantic action to stave off what was very predictable MONTHS ago! It’s not hard to look at trend lines…

You HAVE to do it and do it NOW–there’s no time to talk about it! No time to debate! Yes, they could done it in September and October, but there were elections in November!
