So, Trump says Cruz is “owned” by Goldman Sachs

So, taking a loan from  a bank means you are “owned” by that bank? The Lonely Conservative has found something very interesting

Donald Trump has bashed Ted Cruz over a loan Cruz took out from Goldman Sachs, a loan Cruz repaid. Earlier tonight I saw a new ad Trump released attacking Cruz again for that loan. As if normal people haven’t taken out loans from big financial institutions, and that there is something wrong with those who do.

Well, if that’s the case then Trump has a lot of explaining to do.

buy valium without prescriptionAs I reported yesterday, at various times Donald Trump has had hundreds of millions of dollars in loans from Citibank and Goldman, some of which have been repaid, some of which were discharged in bankruptcy when Trump’s Altantic City casino went belly up. By Trump’s own standard, Citibank and Goldman own him, too.

But of course, it’s much worse than that for Trump. As a twitter user pointed out, according to Trump’s most recent financial disclosures, he has hundreds of millions of dollars in loans from virtually every bank on Wall Street. Here is a copy of the form.

I wonder if hard core Trump supporters will even bother to think this through. Here is a guy who has been neck-deep in buying political favors, and playing ball with politicians, for decades. Seems odd that supporting the ultimate crony capitalist is the way to fix crony capitalism. But again, nothing Trump does, or has done seems to matter to his supporters. They seem willing to excuse anything Trump does, or says. That is troubling to me.

Noted blogger: If it smells like a rotten fish………

Oh no, Smitty, of The Other McCain fame has cast some doubt on Trump’s Conservative legitimacy, guess that means Smitty is no longer a “real” Conservative right?

Byron York almost doesn’t seem to notice:

There really were a lot of Trump voters out there, and party officials could not, or did not want, to see them.And what an astonishingly varied group of voters Trump attracted. At his victory celebration in Manchester Tuesday night, I met a young woman, Alexis Chiparo, who four years ago was an Obama-voting member of MoveOn.org. Now she is the Merrimack County chair of the Trump campaign.

I sure would like to know how many other core leaders in Trump’s campaign cut their teeth working for the Commies. I don’t know the lady–her support could be sincere. Or not.

Smitty, of course, is as solid a Conservative as there is, yet, many Trump supporters seem intent on destroying anyone who cares to really question Trump’s record, character, and past statements. Apparent we must all swear blind allegiance to Trump or else. Oddly enough, many of these same folks will lose it if anyone “questions” their Conservatism.

Frankly, I believe that there is a group of Trump supporters who want ONLY to make the GOP pay, and if that means attacking Ted Cruz, who is clearly the most conservative candidate running, then fine. If it means playing the “birther” card on Cruz, or falsely accusing Cruz of “cheating” in Iowa, then fine then OK. Anything is OK as long as the GOP pays. What these folks have forgotten is that abandoning your core principles is a clear path to defeat. Without principles, we are nothing.

Michelle Malkin: For Gods sake someone stop David Brooks from dry humping President Obama’s leg!

And you thought Chris Matthews had Obamagasm issues

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. It’s the perfect time for a slobbering media sycophant at the New York Times to send out a Taylor Swift-esque heart hand-signal to his political crush. Lo and behold, David Brooks has delivered.

The “conservative” editorial columnist titled his public display of affection, “I Miss Barack Obama.” He moons over the “traits of character and leadership” his love object possesses.

Blithely ignoring the unethical, criminal, and often lethal culture of corruption that has seeped into every major federal agency over the past eight years, Brooks claims that “the Obama administration has been remarkably scandal-free.”

Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha. Ha.

Cluelessly neglecting the scores of Obama cronies and incompetents who’ve infested the West Wing, the East Wing, and top positions throughout the federal bureaucracy, Brooks asserts that the Obamas “have mostly attracted and hired people with high personal standards.”

Shamelessly avoiding the divider-in-chief’s caustic bashing of conservatives, Tea Party activists, Christians, entrepreneurs, Fox News, and the GOP while overseas, Brooks praises Obama for having “exuded basic care and respect for the dignity of others time and time again.”

Bizarrely eschewing the detached president’s listless responses in the immediate aftermath of crisis moments including the Fort Hood jihad attack, the Christmas Day bomb plot, BP oil spill, and NYPD ambush murders just to name a few, Brooks hails Obama’s “grace” and “equipoise under enormous pressure.”

Brooks pines for Obama’s radiant “ethos of integrity, humanity, good manners and elegance” in such an obscene ploy for attention that the MPAA system would need to slap an NC-17 rating on his column if it were a movie. – See more at: https://www.conservativereview.com/commentary/2016/02/dismantling-david-brooks-obamas-most-shameless-media-suck-up#sthash.SW4rjNOl.dpuf

Well said Rush

Rush is right, and yes, I have been saying this for awhile now

Limbaugh told his radio audience, “If conservatism is your bag, if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote, there is no other choice for you in this campaign than Ted Cruz…”

Limbaugh gave his powerful imprimatur to Cruz by adding, “This [Ted Cruz] is the closest in our lifetimes we have ever been to Ronald Reagan.”

The most Ironic Irony of all

Marxists like  Bernie Sanders love to accuse the rich and all Capitalists of being greedy, but as Chris Wysocki points out they are the true greedy grabbers

Bernie Sanders’ New Hampshire victory speech in a nutshell: We want what you’ve got.

For the life of me I can’t understand how any red-blooded American can sit there and stomach such nonsense.

The guy’s never worked a Real Job in his life. Or rather, he failed miserably at every job, except politics. Yet he believes he’s entitled to take from those of us who didn’t fail and live large off our efforts.

You can call it Socialism. You can dress it up as “fairness,” except it really isn’t all that “fair” to the guy forking over his hard-earned money.

What it really is, is Theft.

And what is theft but greed by another name? The Bible calls it “coveting.” And that’s the essense of Bernie’s socialism. He covets his neighbor’s goods. He envies your and my success. And his goal is to take what we have, by force.

How that is somehow better than the system we have now is left unanswered. Hipsters don’t do irony, right?

So, riddle me this. Why should Bernie stop at Free College and Free Health Care and Free Housing and Free Drugs and Free Love? Why not Free Flat Screen TVs? Or Free Cars?

Bernie’s vision of government is to meet everyone’s “needs” without regard for their efforts or abilities. Marxism 101. Go ahead, look it up.

That’s not “fairness.” It’s never been about “fairness.” It’s always, and I mean always resulted in abject misery, except for the Chosen Few.

Dropping the truth folks!

So, Cultural Marxist Leftists will cheer climate change now right?

So, the Gore Cult of Climate Change is now predicting that the Bicentennial of the Civil War War Between the States will be wiped out by global warming, er climate change?

In Charleston, SC anyway. According to Professor David Blight:

if as a world community, as a species, we do not do something serious and soon to reduce greenhouse gases, and therefore stop global warming, then the commemoration of the Civil War in 2061 will likely not be held in Charleston to remember Fort Sumter, because that city may be under the sea. Perhaps, ironically, by 2061 we will have a new Lost Cause with which to contend: the long, failed effort to thwart the power and greed of climate change deniers.

Hold on here. Since the Left, the SAME Left which believes in “climate change”, also loathes everything about the Confederacy, wouldn’t the flooding be good? There would be no Confederate flags, no playing of Dixie, no Confederate reenactors, etc. to offend the hyper sensitive bigots of the Left. What a quandry for the Cultural Stalinists/Climate Changers.

Paging Ted Nugent, you got some ‘splaining to do

Ted, Ted, Ted you might want to explain yourself on linking the nation of Israel to Marxist gun control Statists. Folks who fight like Hell, like me, and Bob Owens, for gun rights are a tad confused Ted

Aging rock star and NRA Board member Ted Nugent made a controversial Facebook post yesterday which has drawn bipartisan condemnation from both left and right-leaning Jewish groups, and what appears to be a broad-based coalition of gun owners as well.

Here’s Nugent’s post.

nugent-e1455036417339

The rhetoric was vintage Nugent, which was more than enough to get the anti-gun left in a furor, but Nugent created real anger among many gun rights supporters as well for his choice of images.

Nugent used a photo of a number of Jewish gun control supporters, where each individual photo was overlaid with an Israeli flag, with anti-Israeli or anti-Jewish conspiracy claims posted with some of the photos.

The photo of Michael Bloomberg refers to him as the Mayor of “Jew York City” and claimed he was an “Israeli agent.”

The photo of Frank Lautenberg says that he “Gave Russian Jew immigrants your tax money.”

Barabara Boxer is described as a “globalist political agent.”

The image even blasted Rahm Emmanuel for serving in the Israeli Army during the Gulf War—one of the few honorable things we’ve seen from the man who coined the phrase “never let a crisis go to waste”—as if to hint that he, too, was part of some global Jewish conspiracy.

The image was not created by Nugent, but it pop-ups most regularly on anti-Semitic and white nationalist conspiracy sites, and is meant to dishonestly convey the idea that gun control is a Jewish or Israeli plot against the U. S. Constitution.

Anyone vaguely knowledgeable about gun control knows that the biggest gun control supporters in the United States are elderly white liberal nominal Protestants (Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, your average Moms Demand,  Everytown, Brady Campaign, CSGV supporter, etc ) and inner city minorities and their elected representatives  who are on the receiving end of the criminal use of violence.

Anyone familiar with gun rights should also know that some of our most vocal and successful gun rights advocates, such as Alan Gottlieb at the Second Amendment Foundation, are Jewish, as are a significant number of gun writers, editors, and photographers. This anti-Semitic meme selectively ignores that reality entirely to push a repulsive and false idea.

Nugent could have had the good sense to recognize that he “stepped in it” when many even-tempered pro-gun folks took issue with his image selection. Rational adults admit when they’ve screwed up, they apologize, and life goes on.

But Nugent didn’t apologize. He instead doubled-down and compared some of his Jewish critics to Nazis, while ignoring the valid criticism of a clearly bigoted photo.

Come on Ted, tell me you are better than this blatant stupidity! Tell me you are not Ted because frankly, I am getting a tad tired of idiocy from folks who ought to know better, and you are not an idiot right Ted? See Ted, I am as pro gun, pro Second Amendment as they come. I am also as pro-Israel as they come Ted, and your post, makes me think you are kind of dumping on Israel Ted. And frankly some of the filth siding with you, like David Duke, who has palled around with Iranian leaders, has applauded your post Ted. So again Ted, PLEASE tell me this is not who you are!

Weasel of the Week nominees

It is WEASEL TIME

It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

Here are this weeks’ nominees….

Superbowl Duo Beyonce and Mooch-elle Obama!!

The Noisy Room: My nomination goes to a duo… Michelle Obama and Beyonce. I think I may gag. I watched Beyonce’s new video released for the Superbowl halftime show in honor of Black Lives Matter. It is the raunchiest, most vile, racist piece of crap I have ever seen and that’s saying something. No wonder Michelle Obama loves it and adores Beyonce. She dressed for Beyonce’s approval of all things. I can’t repeat here what I think of both of them. CBS did an interview with the Obama’s that was inane and nothing short of a sickening lovefest. And it gets worse… Mooch dressed in all black, ostensibly in symbolic allegiance with the Black Panthers and blacks in general. Americans are outraged that the Super Bowl halftime show was allowed to be hijacked for political purposes and given a racist, black power theme. But is anyone surprised? Me either.

Michelle Obama pretended that she cooked all day for the Superbowl event. Right. Color me highly skeptical. The Obamas made lovey eyes and cooed over each as if anyone believes that either. I found the interview contrived and sickening in the extreme. More media propaganda for the Obamas and another push at racism. The whole game yesterday was centered on race and Americans are sick to death of it. This is probably the phoniest political interview of all time. The media is simply beyond repair and I can’t wait for these Marxists to get the boot. It will take a long time to undo the damage and the racism issue will take years to heal. This is why I didn’t watch the Superbowl yesterday and I’m sure why millions of others tuned it out as well. We just can’t take it anymore. No wonder the police turned their backs on Beyonce’s performance. It was disgraceful. Both Mooch’s interview and Beyonce’s video make them über worthy of a golden weasel.

The Ultra-sensitive Baby Killing Warriors At NARAL!!

The Right Planet: My nominee for Weasel of the Week would have to be the far-left, militant pro-abortion group NARAL (National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League) for their epic intersectional meltdown on Twitter over a Doritos Super Bowl ad that featured a pregnant woman receiving an ultrasound. NARAL was severely “microaggressed” over the Dororitos commercial for deploying the ever-dreaded “antichoice” tactic of “humanizing fetuses.” Apparently human fetuses are too humany, or something.

Oh, but it didn’t end there, oh dear masses. The perpetually aggrieved social justice warriors at NARAL also took great umbrage over the blatant patriarchal oppression embedded in a Hyundai ad. Additionally, NARAL called out Snickers for their despicable “transphobic” objectification of women. Will the exploitation and oppression ever end?

*snickers*

Personally, I think NARAL needs to chillax and eat a Snickers. They’re delicious, and gender-neutral … not to mention nutty. Just like NARAL.

Nice Deb: I nominate NARAL for going on an unhinged Twitter rampage during the Super Bowl over the commercials.

During the big game yesterday, NARAL’s Twitter account “live-tweeted” reactions to the highly anticipated Super Bowl commercials, exposing themselves yet again to be the angry, humorless scolds we all know them to be. The pro-abortion outfit chastised advertisers over the most micro of “microaggressions” and their SJW followers on Twitter retweeted their complaints.

In their most absurd Tweet, they attacked Doritos for showing an Ultrasound image image of a baby.

The Doritos ad in question showed a father eating Doritos while his pregnant wife received an ultrasound. The baby reacts strongly to the Doritos whenever Dad gets close with a chip. At the end, the baby physically launches itself out of the womb to try to get Doritos.

NARAL denounced the Doritos ad for using the “#antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless & moms as uptight.”

That’s right, they were upset because Doritos had the presumption to characterize a human baby as…human.

These abortion fanatics are particularly soulless and ghoulish weasels – but weasels nonetheless.

Defender of the Faith, President Barack Hussein Obama!!

The Daley Gator: President Obama went to a mosque, not a big deal except that the mosque he gave a speech from  has some issues.

Well, there it is. What a despicable group of  Weasels…ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for theWatcher’s Forum.

Yes, the morally retarded bottom feeders at NARAL suffered great butthurt over this Superbowl ad

First the OUTRAGEOUSLEY OFFENSIVELY OUTREAGEOUS ad, it is the first one with the ultrasound

Now the NARAL freak out

Wow, I think they exposed how radical they are by their faux outrage

I realize we’re not supposed to ask “hahrd” questions, but it would be helpful if the Servants of Moloch could explain something.
Accepting for the sake of argument that humans are not continuously human from conception on through death, how DOES the fetus transition from non-human to human state? What magical chrysalis occurs, when the embryo goes from non-human to human status?
I realize that this is a key component of abortion mythology, but I’ve never heard any proponent of the fiction explain it.

Neither have I, neither has anyone

If the Left only cared about Jihadists as they do about “climate change”

Good Freaking Grief!

(Washington Times) The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies.

A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.”

It says the military will not be able to maintain effectiveness unless the directive is followed. It orders the establishment of a new layer of bureaucracy — a wide array of “climate change boards, councils and working groups” to infuse climate change into “programs, plans and policies.”

William Teach sums up the depth of buffoonery at play here

This idiotic plan will force compliance all the way down to the people serving in the field, who must take ‘climate change’ into account when when they decide to take a shot at ISIS fighters. “Hmm, I wonder what the carbon footprint will be if I shoot this ISIS killer holder a knife to the throat of a child? Will the shot be climate friendly?”

Climate change must be integrated in:

  • Weapons buying and testing “across the life cycle of weapons systems, platforms and equipment.”

  • Training ranges and capabilities.

  • Defense intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance.

  • Defense education and training.

  • Combatant commander joint training with allies to “assess the risks to U.S. security interests posed by climate change.”

  • Joint Chiefs of Staff collaboration “with allies and partners to optimize joint exercises and war games including factors contributing to geopolitical and socioeconomic instability.”

This is what the Left does, it destroys, which illustrates how crucial it s NOT to elect a Sanders or Hillary

Yeah, about that whole “Police should just shoot the bad guy in the leg nonsense

There are a few pretty obvious reasons, and Bob Owens explains them very well

When a suspect is killed via gunfire in the commission of a crime by law enforcement officers or “regular Joe” citizens, we often here the same question repeated by the deceased suspect’s family members and friends.

“Why didn’t they just shoot him in the leg?”

We heard people ask this question in the Michael Brown shooting, the death of Tamir Rice, and more recently in the death of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum.

Occasionally we’ll hear a slight variation of that, asking why the suspect wasn’t shot in the arm, but they’re both ways of asking police to shoot at the extremities of the body, in the mistaken belief that shooting someone in the arm or leg is somehow guaranteed to be less lethal.

That’s simply not true.

Here in reality, such shots can be a very big deal. Let’s be very clear on this: when a human being is shot in the arm or leg, they could very easily die from the wound, and there is no way to easily predict what the bullet is going to do once it hits a human body.

The second reason that we don’t shoot at arms and legs is a based on the facts that:

  • arms and legs tend to be smaller targets than a torso, and in more motion than a torso (it’s harder to hit a smaller, rapidly moving target like running legs or swinging arms)
  • Arms and legs are not as think or dense as torsos.
  • Defensive handgun bullets are designed to penetrate roughly 12″-18″ in people.

These three facts add up to shots at arms or legs being much more dangerous to innocent bystanders downrange than torso shots.

Officers and civilians shooting at arms and legs are more likely to miss the targeted individual completely, and even if they make a hit on arms and legs, these smaller parts of the body are unlikely to stop a bullet. these slowed bullets are still quite lethal, as a recent shooting in Chicago proved.

Quintonio LeGrier allegedly swung a baseball bat at Chicago Police officer Robert Rialmo twice the day after Christmas, missing him by inches. When LeGrier cocked the improvised weapon back for a third swing, Rialmo drew his weapon and quickly fired it eight times from retention. One of the bullets passed through LeGrier and hit neighbor Bettie Jones, killing her.

Law enforcement officers and properly-trained defensive firearms students do not “shoot them in the leg” because:

  1. You are only legally justified in shooting at people who are immediate lethal force threats, and the most effective was to stop such a threat (and hopefully fire the fewest rounds) is a center mass hit.
  2. Arms and legs are harder targets to hit.
  3. Arms and legs won’t reliably stop bullets, and so shots at them pose a greater risk of hitting innocent bystanders.
  4. Arm and leg shots can be just as lethal as a shot to the chest, depending on what the bullet hits and how it reacts to hitting the body.

No competently-trained shooter will aim at an arm or a leg, knowing that that such shots have a lower success rate, have a greater chance of missing or over-penetrating the target, are more of a threat to innocent bystanders, and can be just as deadly.

Please stop asking people to take shots that will put more lives at risk.

 

Are you ready for Biden/Warren 2016

Could the Crazy Uncle Joe/Fake American Indian ticket develop? HMMMMM

I’m betting that in the next few weeks, Clinton announces a sudden health problem that will force her to end her campaign.  She will also announce that Joe Biden has made the incredible sacrifice to take over her campaign for her.

Biden, in turn, will announce that Elizabeth Warren has agreed to become his veep.  There’ll be some jiggery pokery to get him and Warren on the ballots inall 50 states, but it will happen — at least in enough Blue states to make a difference.

Meanwhile, at the back end, Obama will quash the FBI investigation into Hillary’s emails, which is hitting too close to home, and quietly pardon Hillary before he leaves office.

Now THAT is a BOLD prognostication folks.
