One of the dopiest things President Trump ever said was that there were good people on both sides in Charlottesville. I expect that was his idea of trying to sound reasonable, maybe even presidential. But he was mistaken. On the side that the media pretended was totally composed of Ku Klux Klansmen, I’m sure there were a few decent people who simply resented having statues of Confederate generals, including Robert E. Lee, toppled from their pedestals.
But on the other side of the brouhaha, there were only fascists masquerading as anti-fascists. Masquerading is the appropriate word for the Antifa thugs because, like guests at a Halloween party, they always show up wearing masks. They also brought along baseball bats and crow bars.
⦿ Those on the Left not only hide their faces, they often conceal their core beliefs. For instance, they pretend not to be Jew-haters when they side with the so-called Palestinians against the Israelis by insisting it’s not Jews they despise, but, rather, the fascistic policies of the government. In order to carry off this contemptible charade, they ignore the facts and simply concoct a movie narrative in which the Arabs are portrayed as American blacks during Reconstruction, and the Jews as cross-burning white supremacists wearing bedsheets.
So far as I know, this bit of subterfuge began with Vanessa Redgrave, a dyed-in-the-wool leftist anti-Semite who received an Academy Award more because of her politics than for her acting.
Naturally, because her own offenses were even more despicable than Redgrave’s, Hollywood couldn’t wait to give hanoi-Jane Fonda two Oscars.
If you ever find yourself wondering if the Motion Picture Academy places more emphasis on politics than on actual achievements, very much like those who bestow Nobel Peace Prizes, wonder no longer. When people like Redgrave, hanoi-Fonda, Meryl Streep, Michael Moore, scumbag-Al Gore and Harvey Weinstein, consistently take home Oscars, the question isn’t even worth asking.
⦿ I have come to believe that the reason Mueller’s probe into Trump’s collusion with Russia is dragging on so long is because Trump’s enemies in the Deep State refuse to call it quits until they come up with something, anything, that ties Trump to the Russkies.
After all this time, they’d probably settle for his confessing to having a soft spot for blinis, borscht and caviar, but the stubborn son-of-a-gun is sticking to his claim that his heart belongs to all-American meatloaf.
⦿ I’m not sorry to see Scott Pruitt gone. I certainly approved of what he was doing at the EPA, but I gave the lion’s share of credit to President Trump. I assumed Pruitt was merely carrying out his boss’s orders, and I’m sure that the new guy will continue to rein in the agency.
What’s more, I’m willing to bet that he has already learned the lesson that never seemed to register with his predecessor; namely, that being handed a government job doesn’t grant you the combination to the federal piggy bank.
Although Pruitt had held the job for less than 18 months, he had run up 14 ethics violations, including lying about his private email server; spending $43,000 of our tax dollars on a soundproof telephone booth; $90,000 more on first-class airline flights and charters in a single week, making some of us wonder if he had flown to the moon; handed the taxpayers the bill to pay to fly his security detail on his personal trips; had EPA officials who questioned his spending sprees demoted; reimbursed himself $65,000 for his campaign expenses accrued while running for Attorney General of Oklahoma; another $1,500 for a dozen pens; used his security detail to run his personal errands; paid below-market rent to a lobbyist for his Washington condo; and tried to get the Chick-fil-a company to give his wife a franchise.
I suppose it’s called Potomac fever when schmucks of no particular accomplishment suddenly find their heads swelling to the size of the Goodyear blimp and decide they’re entitled to the same perks as Queen Elizabeth.
In conclusion, I would only like to say that when conservatives rushed to Pruitt's defense, claiming that it was only pressure from the left-wing media that cost him his job, it embarrassed me as a principled conservative. It was his greed and arrogance that cost the Pruitt his job. We do our cause no favors when we reflexively leap to the defense of scoundrels. I don't know anyone on our side of the aisle who wouldn't have been calling for Pruitt's scalp if a dummycrats-Democrat had appointed him.
⦿ I was recently astonished to learn the ground rules that applied when Abe Lincoln and Stephen Douglas conducted seven debates during the Senate campaign of 1858.
It seems that the first speaker would spend an hour making his opening statement. His opponent would then have an hour and a half to deliver his rebuttal. At which point, the first man would have 30 minutes to rebut the rebuttal.
Because in those days, it was the responsibility of state legislatures to choose their state’s two senators, Douglas wound up getting the nod. But, Lincoln, by arguing for the abolishment of slavery, an issue he had admitted just four years earlier was of little consequence to him, garnered him the national attention he desperately craved. Two years later, he would be elected president. Four years after that, 700,000 Americans would be moldering in their graves.
One of the surprises to me was learning that Lincoln did not have the voice we had been led to assume he possessed from hearing his words delivered by the likes of Henry Fonda, Walter Houston, Raymond Massey, Royal Dano and Daniel Day-Lewis. It seems he had a rather high, squeaky voice.
Still, you can’t help being impressed that these two candidates could spend that much time arguing the issues, considering we have been raised on a diet of one and two-minute soundbites.
⦿ I am delighted to report that those on the Left are digging themselves a hole six feet deep in which I’m growing confident the voters will bury them in November.
As if it’s not bad enough that scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters is telling people to harass Republican officials in public or even in their homes; scumbag-Robert DeNiro and Peter Fonda are tossing around obscenities and even promoting pedophilia, so long as Trump’s 12-year-old son is the victim; dummy-Madonna is calling for the White House to be blown up; Chuck clown-Schumer and Nancy Pulosi are either demanding or at least accommodating those in their party who are demanding open borders and getting rid of ICE;dummycrats-Democrats are calling for Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico to be granted statehood and for California to be split not into three parts, but seven, all so the dummycrats-Democrats can seat 16 additional left-wingers in the Senate.
As if that’s enough to turn off millions of voters, an immigrant from Congo is getting kudos from the Never-Trumpers for shutting down the Statue of Liberty on the 4th of July as a rebuke to the President’s immigration policy, which the Supreme Court just last week determined was constitutional.
Also, in case you missed it, Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook recently flagged the Declaration of Independence as hate speech.
In November, when thedummycrats-Democrats are handed their heads on a tray, I will be happy to contribute to a tombstone that reads: Here Lies thedummycrats-Democratic Party/ Home of Morons, Thugs and Traitors/ Dead by its own evil, treacherous hand/ Good riddance to Bullies, Liars and Race-baiters.
⦿ Recently, the House voted overwhelmingly in favor of the Foreign Investment Risk Review Modernization Act. I don’t pretend to know whether that tongue-twister is good or bad for America, but it grabbed my attention because the final vote was 400 in favor and 2 against. The two were Republican congressmen I had never heard of: Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Justin Amash of Michigan. They are either two of the biggest rascals in the House of Representatives or two of the only House members who have the courage of their convictions.
⦿ Someone sent me a video put out by a group called #Walkaway. It consists of people who used to be registereddummycrats-Democrats -- a group that in the distant past has included Ronald Reagan and me -- but have finally had enough. The group includes women, blacks, Latinos and even gays, many of whom admitted it was easier coming out as homosexuals to their families than coming out as conservatives to their erstwhile liberal friends.
When even a notable left-winger like law professor Alan Dershowitz is treated as an apostate by his friends and relatives for merely suggesting that Donald Trump is not the monster he has been portrayed to be by the NY Times and the Washington Post, it can’t be easy for these regular folks to risk the scorn of their families and colleagues. More power to them.

Kavanaugh Accuser Donated To Hillary Clinton 10 Times, 60+ Liberal Groups
Reportedly attempted to conceal political activity by scrubbing social media accounts
Over the weekend, a name and face were added to the previously anonymous sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, which is now threatening to derail his nomination. Those looking to obstruct Kavanaugh’s confirmation certainly saved their best for last, as the prior attempts included pathetic stunts such as:
– Claiming to file perjury charges against Kavanaugh, which only Jeff Sessions would have the ability to file.
– Packing the hearings with hysterical protesters, resulting in hundreds of arrests.
– Threatening female Republicans with extortion.
– Cory Booker comparing himself to Spartacus, the escaped slave who led a revolt against the Romans.
The identity of the accuser was revealed as Christine Blasey Ford, who has agreed testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Ford reportedly made the allegations back in July in a letter to Senator Dianne Feinstein, and Feinstein waited until it was close to the vote to confirm Kavanaugh before making the accusations public.
There’s a record of Ford making the accusation in a 2012 therapy session, though Kavanaugh isn’t named in the session notes that Ford gave to the press. Ford alleges that in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh entered a room drunk, pinned her to a bed, and groped her over her clothing. Kavanaugh “categorically denied” the allegations.
Fin Gomez✔@finnygo NEW: Statement from Judge Brett Kavanaugh:
There is a slight discrepancy in the account Ford provided in her letter to Feinstein and in her therapist’s notes, but that could simply be due to an error on her therapists part.
There are however some other questions that need to be answered which call into question Ford’s motives.
As Grabien reported, they include:
1. Why Ford deleted her public social media accounts before revealing herself.
Ford deleted all of her public social media before she came forward, making it difficult to see the advocacy and partisanship she was engaged in the time leading up to her making her allegation public. Of course, Ford may simply value her privacy, but the act of deleting her public postings will inevitably make some wonder what she didn’t want seen.
2. That Ford may have an unrelated grudge against Kavanaugh, as his mother, once a circuit court judge, ruled against Ford’s parents.
In August 1996, Christine Blasey Ford’s parents, Paula and Ralph Blasey, were foreclosed upon. Kavanaugh’s mom, Martha, was then serving as a judge on the Montgomery Country Circuit Court, and she ruled against Christine Ford’s parents.
3. That Ford is a Democrat who donates to left-wing causes, attended the anti-Trump March for Science, and previously signed an open letter challenging Trump’s border policy.
Ford is a political activist who has made dozens of donations to left-wing causes. According to OpenSecrets, she has made more than 60 donations to liberal causes, with almost four dozen to the pro-abortion group, Emily’s List, alone. Ford also donated to the DNC, Hillary Clinton (more than 10 times), Bernie Sanders, and the progressive organizing group ActBlue.
Ford likewise attended the anti-Trump March for Science, where she wore a hat knitted like a human brain, but inspired by the feminist “pussy hats” worn at the Women’s Marches. Ford also added her name to an open letter from health professionals who argued the U.S. border policy resulting in temporary separation of some families was harmful to children’s development.
There’s no statute of limitations on sexual assault in Maryland, where she claims that the assault happened. Rather than go to the police, Ford went to Dianne Feinstein. If her accusations are true, she should immediately file a police report against Kavanaugh and take him to trial. If she doesn’t, perhaps that’s because she knows the consequences of filing a false police report.
