Can the GOP's Shotgun Marriage Be Saved?

 Scenes From Houston 
by Nate Jackson:  The devastation in Houston is astounding, and most Americans are riveted and appalled by the damage, chaos and death created by the storm that’s just parked over Texas and Louisiana. There are stories of failed leadership, of course — poor planning regarding developments and reservoirs and the like — but there are also stories of bravery, rescue and provision. It’s heartening to see some of the best of humanity exhibited by our fellow Americans at a time when divisiveness is the typical story of the day.
          Law enforcement has taken the lead in doing what’s necessary to help people reach safety from flood zones. Citizens are helping the officers too, providing food and water as they perform rescues. Additionally, FEMA, the Texas government and big organizations like Red Cross are playing a critical role. But one aspect that jumps out to us is how many residents are helping themselves and those around them, without waiting on the government and without regard for race or creed. One of the officers on duty, Jocelyn George, said, “These are residents taking action on their own. It is very typical of the area. I have been here for 13 years, and every time we have had an issue, the residents step up and they try to take care of themselves.”
     This was on display when a small group of men simply gathered trucks and boats to help
evacuate people. Another group exists almost solely for that purpose — the Cajun Navy, a
private Louisiana organization specializing in boat rescues of people trapped by floodwaters. Three of its members resuscitated a 73-year-old woman in the midst of the flood. “We’re all sportsmen around here,” said the Cajun Navy’s John Bridgers. “Pretty much every other person has a boat. So we got going.” That’s the American spirit at its best.
          A final note: Hurricane Harvey is “unprecedented” in its incredibly slow speed, but not necessarily in the rain it’s dropped. The storm’s intensity — it was Category 4 at landfall — isn’t unprecedented either. Dr. Roy Spencer, a former NASA scientist and climatologist, writes, “The U.S. has had only four Category 4 (or stronger) hurricane strikes since 1970, but in about the same number of years preceding 1970 there were 14 strikes. So we can’t say that we are experiencing more intense hurricanes in recent decades. Going back even earlier, a Category 4 hurricane struck Galveston in 1900, killing between 6,000 and 12,000 people. That was the greatest natural disaster in U.S. history. And don’t forget, we just went through an unprecedented length of time — almost 12 years — without a major hurricane (Cat 3 or stronger) making landfall in the U.S.”
          In short, disasters are indeed horrible, and Harvey is a particularly bad one. But don’t buy the hype of those selling climate change alarmism via “nature hikes through the book of Revelation” and so forth. Mankind never has been able to tame nature entirely. But we can help each other cope.  ~The Patriot Post
Advocating Another Sellout On Border WALL
{} ~ Anytime Congress needs to stand strong with President Trump and the American people we can rest assured we’ll see a cloud of dust, and a tsunami of blue suits surging out of sight... President Trump promised us a border wall and every effort he makes fulfilling that pledge is thwarted by the corrupt inhabitants of Capitol Hill. The latest bit of treachery to be unleashed upon us came from an unlikely source, Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC). He’s played the role of the staunch conservative, the guy who got rid of backstabber-Boehner, originally welcomed as a blessing but which ultimately led to us being saddled with Paul Ryan. As the leader of the Freedom Caucus Meadows certainly talks a good and convincing game. But his actions don’t speak as loudly as his claims when it comes to the border wall. Republicans are experts at finding a way to back out of their commitments and to surrender to the Democrats...
Keith Ogre-mann: Conde Nast-y's misogynist-in-chief
{} ~ Once a woman-hating blowhard, always a woman-hating blowhard.

Keith Olbermann, the “new” face of the Democratic resistance on Conde Nast’s digital video platform, is the same old foul-mouthed beast he was on cable TV.

Over the weekend, the former MSNBC frother went berserk over Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s anodyne call for prayers “for all those in the path of #HurricaneHarvey” and her promise to “assist impacted schools.”

“The hurricane is going to do less damage to schools than you are, Motherf–-er,” Olbermann snarled in response and no, he did not use dashes in his unfiltered, uncensored tweet.

The Twitter Trust and Safety Council, established with much fanfare last year to promote tolerance, discourage bullies and ensure “people can continue to express themselves freely and safely on Twitter,” was nowhere to be found.

Neither were the rest of the civility police who’ve been lamenting the dangerous climate of hate against all females purportedly fomented by President Trump.

Here’s the thing. There are myriad reasons to criticize Betsy DeVos, whatever side of the political spectrum you occupy. Grass-roots education activists on the right, for example, wish the White House had chosen a proven warrior in the fight against Fed Ed instead of a well-heeled, establishment GOP donor who was for the Common Core racket in Michigan before she was against it. On the left, public education union bosses oppose DeVos’s push for expansion of public charter schools and vouchers.

And at the intersection of left and right, informed parents fear DeVos represents the corporate education cronyism of both the Bush and liar-nObama administrations that drove federal testing, technology, and curriculum programs.

But that’s not Olbermann’s beef. DeVos is a Republican. She’s a woman. Therefore, she’s subhuman and deserves his profane attacks.

History, like a one-trick Neanderthal egotist, repeats itself. Conde Nast-y’s chief Trump-basher is a serial verbal abuser of outspoken conservative women. What’s remarkable is how easily Olbermann cruised into his new role at Conde Nast as the progressive point person against Donald Trump, whom the resistance rage-bot calls “a man not in his right mind.”

Let’s talk about unhingedness.

Of TV commentator S.E. Cupp, Olbermann sniped: “She’s a perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work Planned Parenthood does.”

Of lawyer and author Ann Coulter, he hurled this transphobic insult: “If this guy wants to live his life as a woman, I’m gonna back his choice up 100 percent.”

And of yours truly, he railed against my “total mindless, morally bankrupt, knee-jerk, fascistic hatred, without which Michelle Malkin would just be a big mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.”

Conde Nast, which has now sponsored two seasons of Olbermann’s internet diatribes, has nothing to say about his lunatic hang-up with conservative women. Yet, the New York-based publishing conglomerate, which owns left-wing politics, fashion and culture magazines including GQ, Vanity Fair, the New Yorker, Allure, Vogue and Teen Vogue, churns out endless, glossy pages assailing the Trump era’s “manifest misogyny” and “unconscious, unending sexism.”

And the company cashed in on inaugural protests with a “special edition” magazine titled, “Rise Up! The Women’s Marches Around the World.” One-sided narratives on the war on women sell.

So, who will be Olbermann’s next GOP target of sexist slander? What innocent comment from a female Trump supporter or Cabinet member will prompt his next f-bomb-laden tirade?

I know this for sure: Whoever this toddler-brained bully fumes at ad feminam and ad nauseam, smug elites in the New York publishing world will shrug their Burberry scarf-wrapped shoulders and look the other way.

Pussy-hat hypocrisy means never having to say you’re sorry for lifting up a worse ogre than the one you think you’re bringing down.
