In the wake of the Parkland killings, young David Hogg has achieved a level of fame and acclaim that is generally reserved for people who have actually accomplished something. The last time I heard the lad speak, he was dropping more f-bombs than one would normally expect from someone the left-wing media has proclaimed the greatest orator since Abe Lincoln held the stage at Gettysburg.

Perhaps I’m not being fair to the arrogant young twit, but I keep wondering if down deep he doesn’t believe that 17 deaths were a relatively small price to pay for the jump-start the tragedy has provided to his political career.

As heart-breaking as school shootings are, they are infrequent and, if gun confiscation wasn’t a major plank in the Democrats’ platform, they would not receive the national attention they invariably receive.

What’s more, if Hogg was seriously seeking an issue to run on, it should be teenage suicides. In 2017, 5,079 teenagers killed themselves, making it the second leading cause of death for those between the age of 15 and 24. In other words, 14 youngsters murder themselves every single day. Coincidentally, 14 is the exact same number of youngsters who were killed by Nikolas Cruz.

And yet, nobody is marching or lecturing in response to this American tragedy. I suppose that’s because our leaders, Chuck clown-Schumer, Nancy Pulosi, scum-Dick Durbin and David Hogg, can’t discover a way to blame it on the NRA or Donald Trump.

⦿  At Hampshire College, as reported by the College Fix, just hours before Antonia Okafor, a black woman, was scheduled to give a talk in defense of the Second Amendment, the school’s administrators pulled the plug because the pinheads deemed it would be too controversial. So, it would appear that at Hampshire, the First Amendment is as unpopular with the powers that be as the Second.

Lest you think this is a one-off, in 2016, Hampshire lowered the American flag to half-mast in response to Donald Trump’s defeating liar-Hillary Clinton.

And with the sort of pusillanimous language we have all come to associate with college administrators, the president of the college explained the flag was lowered “solely to facilitate much-needed dialogue on our campus about how to dismantle the bigotry that is prevalent in our society.”

⦿  But the pigheadedness isn’t limited to colleges and universities. Julianne Benzel, a history teacher at the Rocklin (CA) high school, was suspended because in the wake of the nation-wide marches in opposition to the Second Amendment, she asked her class what they thought would happen if she proposed they attend a Pro-Life march. For simply posing a hypothetical question, she got her walking papers.

One can only assume that if he were alive today, Socrates and his Socratic method would be less welcome on school campuses than a Marine recruiter.

⦿  One of my subscribers let me know that although he is not a Catholic, he used to admire their insistence on sticking to their convictions. “That is no longer the case. They have forgotten that their mission is supposed to be saving souls, not engaging in social engineering.”

I let him know that I had gone through a similar transition, but not in regard to the Church. It’s how I’ve felt about the U.S. military ever since they decided that winning wars was less important than making the service more welcoming to women, homosexuals and transgenders.

It makes me wonder if it’s only those with flat feet who can no longer pass muster.

⦿  After mentioning that I was basically unable to get an agent or a TV writing assignment after I turned 50, a subscriber wondered why those doing the hiring cared how old I was and wondered if it was ageism that had led to the decline of TV content.

“The problem,” I explained, “was that the sponsors wanted to attract young viewers, assuming that if they bought their products in their teens and their twenties, they’d be customers for life. Yes, I know it’s stupid, but nobody has ever made a case for sponsors being particularly bright.

“But in order to satisfy the sponsors, the networks decided the answer was to hire younger and younger executives, assuming they’d know what the young folks wanted to watch since they belonged to the targeted demographic group. Those people, in turn, didn’t want to meet with writers who reminded them of their parents or, worse yet, their grandparents.”

I recall advising older people at the time that if they wanted to influence TV programming, they would have to start purchasing beer. They didn’t have to drink the stuff, but they did have to start buying a lot more of it.

⦿  As if Angela Merkel hasn’t done enough to turn Germany into a sewer, thanks to her open-door policy when it comes to Muslims, she is now the reason that tuberculosis has been reintroduced to the country. An asylum seeker from Yemen is suspected of having spread a highly contagious strain to children as young as three at a daycare facility in a church where he had been granted sanctuary.

⦿  As you may have heard, by hanging tough, it appears that President Trump has made China back off its threat of a trade war. China, I understand, has agreed to purchase a great many more semiconductors and other made-in-America products in order to help reduce its $375 billion trade surplus.

America has grown so accustomed to having our presidents cave to the likes of China, North Korea and Iran, or spending most of their time sweet-talking Islamists, that they no longer recognize what an American patriot in the Oval Office even looks like.

⦿  I am looking forward to seeing “Chappaquiddick,” which apparently tells the unvarnished truth about the way that Ted Kennedy escaped justice when he got drunk, ran off the road and left 28-year-old Mary Jo Kopechne to drown in his car.

The incident served to keep Kennedy out of the White House but didn’t prevent his becoming the most influential member of the Senate, any more than holding high office in the Ku Klux Klan prevented the Democrats from making Robert Byrd the Speaker of the House. I suppose they felt his years in the Klan provided him with that all-important executive experience.

Although I had never heard about it, one of my readers claims that at the first session of Congress after Ted Kennedy was caught, on camera, having sex with one of his aides on the deck of his yacht, House Speaker Sam Rayburn of Texas remarked: “Ah see that the good Senatuh from the great state of Massachusetts has changed his position when it comes to off-shore drillin’.”

⦿  Speaking of Texans, Ralph Barnett insists that one of them was on a business trip to New York, when he was having a drink in the hotel bar with a few associates and got a call. When he got off the phone, he was grinning ear to ear. After announcing that his wife had just given birth to a typical Texas 25-pound baby boy, he treated the crowd to a round of drinks.

Nobody could believe that his wife had delivered such a large baby, but he assured them that in Texas that was just about average.

A month later, business brought him back to New York. When he entered the bar, the bartender recognized him. When the Texan sat down, the bartender explained that the regulars had all been trying to guess how big the baby would be by this time.

The Texan said: “Roy Junior weighs 17 pounds.”

The bartender cocked a puzzled eyebrow in his direction and said: “Hold on there. How could he weigh 25 pounds at birth and only 17 pounds a month later?”

“Easy,” the proud father explained. “We had him circumcised.”

Good one...but I am asking where is his parents?

Lack of opportunity for employment after turning 50... may have more to do with purging conservative ideology than recruiting those more a tune to the younger generation.  Instead of the establishment elite calling the culling a purge, they have chosen to avoid the stigma attached to that term. The left has now coined the term downsizing or updating.  However, the vernacular used doesn't help those purged to find new jobs or the economy from reeling as it recovers from the effects of a new learning curve... and the loss of stability... associated with purges.

Germany isn't the only modern industrialized nation to experience a resurgence of Tuberculosis... as other, once defeated diseases, are remerging to plague their populations. America is experiencing compromised public health issues, as it rushes to embrace Europe's open border policy and the worlds unwashed.  There is now a  full spectrum of like-minded fools running our immigration policy.  Angela Merkel isn't alone in her efforts to eliminate white privilege, by embracing a newfound appreciation for the third world, its diseases, and disparaging cultural issues, the white race's days may be numbered.  Merkel and her ilk are opening whole new pathways to end white privilege ... and the white race with them.

At least us old curmudgeons won't have to worry about finding work... in the new world order. If TB doesn't get us, and white privilege doesn't end our days, we will likely fall victims to one purge or another.  Welcome to the new world order and the reformed GOP... take a seat, in the reserved section, at the rear of the Bus...

The problem is not David Hogg, the problem is a pharmaceutical freak went into a school and they video taped the shooting. This made news, and the kids are right, there must be more security for schools, as for the gun control politics, its going no where.

David Hogg: https://www.google.com/search?q=David+Hogg+&ie=utf-8&oe=utf...


Thats correct we do need more security in our schools. but the liberal dems will continue to fight against it.

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.

Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
