We owe Nancy Pelosi a debt of gratitude, no really

No, I have  not lost my mind, nor am I on drugs of any sort. Nor have I been drinking Irish whiskey, or hit my head really hard. No, the truth is, Nancy pelosi might be the biggest reason we do not have Trainwreck Hillary as president elect. RS McCain, who is as sane as I am, explains

She’s a 76-year-old white woman whose father was the boss of the corrupt Democrat machine in Baltimore during the segregation era, and being married to a multimillionaire California real-estate investor, she’s one of the top 10 richest members of Congress. Democrats in Congress couldn’t have picked a more out-of-touch leader if they had tried. The geriatric liberal, whose political beliefs are like a fossil of the 1988 Dukakis campaign, apparently cannot understand why Democrats keep losing.

In 2010, Pelosi insisted on ramming ObamaCare through Congress: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Eight months later, in the 2010 midterm elections, Republicans scored their biggest congressional gains since 1938. Four years later, Democrats lost the Senate, and their losses have been even worse at the state level.

“Republicans are now in control of a record 67 (68 percent) of the 98 partisan state legislative chambers in the nation,” as Barbara Hollingsworth reported. “In 24 of the 32 states with Republican-controlled legislatures, voters have also elected Republican governors.”

Pelosi can’t seem to grasp why her party has become so unpopular, and instead resorts to scapegoating rationalizations:

While giving a press briefing to reporters, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called the GOP’s push to defund the taxpayer funded Planned Parenthood a “manhood thing.”
During her press briefing, Pelosi fielding questions about Republican plans to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and remove taxpayer funding for abortion provider Planned Parenthood.
At the end of her remarks, Pelosi said, “Let me end on this note. Of all the things that they could be doing in a reconciliation bill — job creation, deficit reduction — no, forget that. What are they doing in this bill? Overturning the Affordable Care Act, undermining the health security and financial stability of America’s working families, and defunding Planned Parenthood. That’s their — that’s their manhood thing,” Pelosi said while shaking her hands.
“You know, defunding Planned Parenthood. How can they establish that as a priority unless they’re coming at all of this from a very ideological stand-point?” she asked.

Go read it all, McCain goes on to explain the multiple failures, and I mean disastrous failures of the Left. Failures that have cost them in every election since 2008. Yet, Pelosi and other Democrats continue to push the same agenda that has been costing Americans. In short Pelosi has led the Democrats to a new level of FAIL! Throw in the increasingly insulting rhetoric the Left spews, and the naked disdain they hold for American principles, and most Americans and you get Nuclear Grade FAIL!

So, again, thank you Nancy Pelosi!

Why yes, a business should be allowed to ban costumers as it chooses

It is called liberty, and it can be messy. So, if a restaurant wants to ban those it disagrees with ideologically, that is their right, or at least it ought to be. Surely it is a business model doomed to fail badly. Let’s face it, a business needs costumers to succeed, and banning certain people is not an astute business move. But, personally, I would prefer to know I am not welcome, so I can go elsewhere

Honolulu’s Café 8 ½ gets rave reviews on Yelp for its “Radiatore Verde” and “Italian stir fry,” among other popular dishes at the eclectic mom-and-pop restaurant – but the response to its new ‘policy’ barring pro-Trump patrons has been decidedly more mixed.

A bright yellow, handmade sign posted on the restaurant’s front glass door declares: “If you voted for Trump you cannot eat here! No Nazis.”

Ok, fine, if I am ever in Honolulu, I will not go to that eatery. There are other restaurants. And no, I would never support a law forcing that restaurant to serve me. I believe in liberty, and one liberty of great importance is freedom of association. I value that far more than anyone’s hurt feelings, even my own

The further indoctrination of our kids

Via The Daily Caller

The Caucus of Working Educators, a branch of a teachers union, wants educators to wear Black Lives Matter gear in the classroom and teach lessons based on the movement, reports ABC News.

The themes for the lessons vary day to day. Jan. 23’s lessons are supposed to cover ideas of “restorative justice, empathy and loving engagement,” while Jan. 24 will deal with diversity and globalism.

In other words Marxism, social justice, and propaganda about how racist America and its police forces are. Go read it all, and you will likely come to the conclusion that this is nothing more than indoctrination into radical left values. Please recall that BLM was forged based on a lies, the lies about Trayvon Martin being hunted down, the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie. The movement is infested with radicals, racists, and is backed by George Soros, a rabidly anti-American radical himself.

I have no problem teaching students about BLM, but I want the truth taught, not propaganda.

If you are skeptical, consider the 13 principles that BLM claims to be founded upon.

Do not expect to see anything remotely resembling a call to address the out of wedlock birthrate in the Black community. Or for a call for Blacks to leave gangs, and stop killing other Blacks Over 90% of Blacks killed are killed by Black people, usually young Black men with illegal firearms. Do not look for a call to reign in the disproportionate rate of violent crime committed by young Black men. Do not look for any call for anything that might actually save Black lives, or improve living conditions in the inner city. Those things just are not important to BLM.

Here is one you might find interesting Emphasis mine

BLACK VILLAGES

We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.

So, with a lack of Black fathers being a large issue in the inner cities, BLM wants to further “disrupt” the traditional family?

All the other principles are based in Marxism. Heather Mac Donald offers some important insight

For almost two years, a protest movement known as “Black Lives Matter” has convulsed the nation. Triggered by the police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August 2014, the Black Lives Matter movement holds that racist police officers are the greatest threat facing young black men today. This belief has triggered riots, “die-ins,” the murder and attempted murder of police officers, a campaign to eliminate traditional grand jury proceedings when police use lethal force, and a presidential task force on policing.

Even though the U.S. Justice Department has resoundingly disproven the lie that a pacific Michael Brown was shot in cold blood while trying to surrender, Brown is still venerated as a martyr. And now police officers are backing off of proactive policing in the face of the relentless venom directed at them on the street and in the media. As a result, violent crime is on the rise.

The need is urgent, therefore, to examine the Black Lives Matter movement’s central thesis—that police pose the greatest threat to young black men. I propose two counter hypotheses: first, that there is no government agency more dedicated to the idea that black lives matter than the police; and second, that we have been talking obsessively about alleged police racism over the last 20 years in order to avoid talking about a far larger problem—black-on-black crime.

This is an excellent source that exposes the Black Lives Matter scam. Go read it all, and pass it around. In closing let me add this from Mac Donald, it is powerful

Who are some of the victims of elevated urban crime? On March 11, 2015, as protesters were once again converging on the Ferguson police headquarters demanding the resignation of the entire department, a six-year-old boy named Marcus Johnson was killed a few miles away in a St. Louis park, the victim of a drive-by shooting. No one protested his killing. Al Sharpton did not demand a federal investigation. Few people outside of his immediate community know his name.

Ten children under the age of ten were killed in Baltimore last year. In Cleveland, three children five and younger were killed in September. A seven-year-old boy was killed in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend by a bullet intended for his father. In November, a nine-year-old in Chicago was lured into an alley and killed by his father’s gang enemies; the father refused to cooperate with the police. In August, a nine-year-old girl was doing her homework on her mother’s bed in Ferguson when a bullet fired into the house killed her. In Cincinnati in July, a four-year-old girl was shot in the head and a six-year-old girl was left paralyzed and partially blind from two separate drive-by shootings. This mindless violence seems almost to be regarded as normal, given the lack of attention it receives from the same people who would be out in droves if any of these had been police shootings.

Yet, none of this matters to Black Lives Matter? I implore everyone to ask why, and then consider what IS behind BLM? 

 

18 House Democrats to skip inauguration, throw tantrum instead

18 House Democrats to skip Trump’s inauguration

By Heather Caygle and John Bresnahan | 01/13/17 05:57 PM EST | Updated 01/13/17 08:28 PM EST

Despite raging against President-elect Donald Trump for months, so far there’s no widespread push from Democrats to abandon the controversial Republican’s inauguration. But that could change.

As of Saturday afternoon, 18 House Democrats have announced they’re skipping Trump’s Jan. 20 swearing-in, according to the latest count.

California Rep. Barbara Lee said she wouldn’t endorse a president defined by “racism, sexism, xenophobia and bigotry.” And civil rights era icon and veteran Democratic Rep. John Lewis (Ga.) blasted Trump in an interview set to air on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday, saying the president-elect is not “legitimate” and he’ll be skipping the inauguration for the first time since he arrived in Congress in 1987. Lewis was one of three black lawmakers to testify against Trump’s attorney general nominee, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), earlier this week.

In addition to Lee and Lewis, Democratic Reps. John Conyers of Michigan, Katherine Clark of Massachusetts, Raúl Grijalva of Arizona, Luis Gutiérrez of Illinois, José Serrano, Nydia Velazquez, Adriano Espaillat and Jerrold Nadler of New York, Earl Blumenauer and Kurt Schrader of Oregon, Lacy Clay of Missouri, and Mark Takano, Mark DeSaulnier, Jared Huffman, Ted Lieu and Judy Chu of California have all said they’ll skip the ceremony because they can’t stomach Trump.

Good riddance to bad rubbish frankly. This group is made up of race hustlers, racists open border zealots, gun banners and Communists frankly. I wish they would not stop there. If they wanted to do some actual good, they could resign in outrage. America, excepting the Communist conclaves of California and New York sent Democrats a message last November. If these miscreants choose not to listen, and to double down on their Leftism, then that is on them. Hopefully the people in their districts boot them in 2018.
