No Time

Time is up for the establishment of both parties (even though the fix is in for Hills).

No time left for you
On my way to better things
No time left for you
I found myself some wings
No time left for you
Distant roads are calling me
No time left for you.

We all have had enough of the mess both R-words and D-words have made of our country. Half of the left is rebelling by choosing to back a socialist. Half of the right has rebelled by choosing to vote for two outsiders. The oligarchs of both parties are in shock at the insurrection of the voters and making every effort to insure they stay in control. They have no respect for the voters or their choices. Debbie Downer insists the superdelegates are there to make sure the grassroots don’t choose anyone the D-word establishment doesn’t like. The R-words, especially Mitt Romney, are plotting to bring about a brokered convention to make sure they get the candidate they want.

No time for a summer friend
No time for the love you send
Seasons change and so did I
You need not wonder why
You need not wonder why
There’s no time left for you
No time left for you.

We voted for the establishment candidates because they promised to stop the chicanery in DC. They became part of it. Every single promise made to us has been broken. They use their offices to increase their wealth while the middle class is being raked over the coals through alphabet agency policies, legal and illegal immigration, massive regulations that are strangling the economy and, accrue wealth through insider trading. Why do they think we should trust them now?

We, the people, are taking you down. You, the establishment, let us down. There are no excuses good enough to make us feel any different. All of you deserve our contempt. There is no time left for you.

No time left for you
On my way to better things
No time left for you
I found myself some wings
No time left for you
Distant roads are calling me
No time left for you.

Cruz and Trump are not a threat to our democracy (republic), you are.

Lyrics by the Guess Who

Campaign Overload Season

Keeping up with all the crazy isn’t easy for average Americans. It’s as if nothing else is going on in the world. The US is bombing Boko Haram in Africa and Russian tanks in Syria. The EU is in a complete meltdown over immigration and the Brits are voting on a referendum to exit the Union.  Obama and the Dems are at loggerheads over the resolution to stop the Israel Derangement Syndrome of BDS. UN African Peacekeepers are raping and abusing women and girls. Armenia is cosying up to Russia (can’t say I blame them)  and troops have been deployed near the Turkish border. NATO told Erdogan if he starts a mess with anyone he is on his own. In the mean time he’s bombing the Kurds in the north. Erdogan is an egoic fool and a disaster for the Turkish people with his dreams of the Golden Age of Constantinople.

 

Rubio seems to be the love child of the right (including FOX, the fair and balanced network). How does one keep claiming victory over an opponent when coming in second or third place in every caucus or primary? His problem is his two faced hypocrisy on illegal immigration and border control.  So much for that Gang of Eight betrayal which really ticked off a whole bunch of people. Rubio still can’t explain that one away, no matter how hard he tries. His life story is pretty compelling but, so is the life stories of Americans who will be put out of jobs by cheap labor coming across the southern border and the expansion of H1b visas. Compassion is one thing, cultural suicide is another. Americans aren’t buying into that program. via Breitbart

As Phyllis Schlafly said: Marco Rubio’s claims about amnesty, his deceptions, exceeded Obama’s claims about Obamacare. Think about that for a second.

And then he treated law enforcement, in the words of Chris Crane, “like absolute trash.” How can you have a GOP nominee who demonstrates that kind of disrespect

 

Sanders has a new set of problems regarding his campaign contributions. The FEC has flagged almost 5,000 that are outside of campaign finance law. via Free Beacon

The Federal Election Commission sent a letter to the Democratic presidential candidate’s campaign committee on Thursday with a 90-page spreadsheet listing 3,457 “excessive, prohibited, and impermissible contributions.”

The campaign’s January financial disclosure filing listed contributions from foreign nationals and unregistered political committees, the FEC said. Other contributions came from donors who exceeded the $2,700 per-election limit.

Don’t they know the only people who can get away with all that is Obama and Clinton?

 

If you haven’t read it yet, Peggy Noonan has a great article about the crazy election and the “outsiders” causing the establishment such great humiliation and gnashing of teeth.

Trump and the Rise of the Unprotected

“Why political professionals are struggling to make sense of the world they created”

It isn’t hard to understand why Trump is leading the pack of R-words. A people can only be degraded, humiliated, and condescended to just for so long before they reach the boiling point. That point has now been reached.

 

The American Conservative has it own take on the reason for Trumps popularity

Trump: Fishtown’s Champion Against Belmont

When people are making decisions that affect the lives of many other people, the cultural isolation that has grown up around America’s new upper class can be disastrous. It is not a problem if truck drivers cannot empathize with the priorities of Yale law professors. It is a problem if Yale law professors, or producers of the nightly news, or CEOs of great corporations, or the President’s advisors, cannot empathize with the priorities of truck drivers.

 

Friday brought us another calculated dumping of Clinton emails…The Five Must-Read Emails Of The Latest Clinton Email Dump  read it all. I found the one from John Kerry very interesting.

Clinton also received an email from then-Senator John Kerry. This email’s release coming in the same week that Secretary Kerry claimed that he had “no knowledge” that Clinton had a private email, makes that claim look ridiculous.

 

Our primary is March 15….have no idea who to vote for, except not Rubio. He lost my vote by lying about amnesty. Fool me once…..

We The Living

The slow march of Progressivism is turning into an Ayn Rand novel. If you haven’t read her account of the Socialist revolution, please pick it up and do so. The very first part of the revolution in Russia was to kill off the intellects and the wealthy businessmen and shut down anyone who objected. There are no winners, just tragic endings.  Just like today the revolutionists ended up as corrupt and greedy as the people they replaced. It is a horrifying read of the experience of Rand under the socialist revolution, and it was worth reading again. Personally I would rather die with my dignity and honor intact than live under a socialist government.  This is the utopia Sanders thinks we should emulate.

Sanders has stated he and his followers are starting a “revolution”. This governing has been tried and has failed miserably in every single country that has been taken over by socialist idealism. All those young voters with stars in their eyes over a “free education” and “equality of outcomes” have a very rude awakening coming. There is no free stuff, everyone pays, and like in NK or Venezuela, the only free stuff goes to the Party cohorts who run the socialist government. They live in opulence while the people starve and have very little access to the everyday items the Bernie supporters take for granted. When Bernie rails against the choices for products, like he has against the many choices we have for deodorant, he is espousing shutting down manufacturing. Why should we have so many choices? After all, we only need one or two. When following that logic through to the end, it only stands to reason Bernie would object to so many newspapers or blogs, or clothing manufacturers, even differing opinions. The “fix” may be in for the Dem Party but, this is the one time it actually makes sense ( I know, not a very popular idea). Sanders will never be the nominee and the kids will just stay home because of it.

This new Sanders logo is down right creepy bs

Regrets, more than a few

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3451560/Obama-snubs-Scalia-funeral-President-NOT-attend-requiem-conservative-Supreme-Court-justice.html

Big Bad BO will not be attending Justice Scalia’s funeral on Saturday.

It was not immediately clear why the president won’t go to the formal funeral.

‘I don’t have a sense of what the president’s plans are for Saturday,’ Earnest said after a reporter suggested it would be bad form for him to go golfing, a favorite weekend activity of Obama’s.

But, BO does have regrets for past behavior. He thinks NOW filibustering the Bush appointments is something he regrets having done. That’s what happens when karma turns around and bites someone in the ass for prior bad behavior.

Wonder if he has any “regrets” for the massive destruction he and Hillary caused in Libya. Using the excuse there may be a crackdown by the Libyan government, in some fictional future, on the people as a reason to bomb the hell out of that country, along with the French, set up Libya to be a center for terrorism. Wasn’t that a brilliant piece of foreign policy. Does he “regret ” the red line drawn in the sands of Syria? That sure came around to bite him in the ass. His faux treaty with Iran has provided the reason for the rest of the ME countries to start looking for their own nuclear bomb. His legacy is not a proud one, not after he has made cannon fodder out of millions of people.

Here comes that idiot Clinton, claiming the R-words are speaking in “racially coded language” because they might filibuster BO’s Supreme Court pick. The same Clinton who voted to filibuster George W. Bush’s pick for the high court.

Hillary joined the same filibuster attempt as Barack Obama against George W. Bush’s nominee Samuel Alito, apparently not considering his choice legitimate either

Pander much?   Want to tell the world how much you love Hillary? You too can “Tweet for Hillary” each time she says or does something of great importance during her campaign. You can make it your mission by joining the tweet and facebook group extolling all of Hillary’s virtues. http://www.weaselzippers.us/

Announcement:

I have the distinguished honor of being on the Monument Committee to raise $50,000,000 for a monument to Hillary R. Clinton

We originally wanted to put her on Mt. Rushmore until we discovered there was not enough room for two faces

We then decided to erect a statue of Hillary in the Washington D.C. Hall of Fame. We were in a quandary as to where the statue should be placed.

It was not proper to place it beside the statue of George Washington, who never told a lie, or beside Barack Hussein Obama, who never told the truth, since Hillary could never tell the difference.

We finally decided to place it beside Christopher Columbus the greatest Democrat of them all. He left not knowing where he was going and, when he got there he did not know where he was. He returned not knowing where he had been, and did it all on someone else’s money.

Thank you,

Hillary R Clinton Monument Committee

P.S. The Committee has raised $00.16 to date

Crazy Train

Hillary Is 44 is in a state of panic. Never has so much venom been directed at their star candidate. Hillary wasn’t 44 and she certainly won’t be 45. They are in hysterics over the mess and rightly so.

At every embarrassing Hillary2016 event we hear Hillary Clinton talk about something. Some issue or policy pours out of Hillary’s mouth like vomit from a drunk. “I have a plan” noises emit. Blah, blah, blah, echoes from 2008 persist to be the Hillary2016 product. No one gives a damn.

Americans want to talk about their anxieties, the wrong track we are on, the truth of the failed Obama economy not the statistical bullsh*t numbers, the terror of terror, the failures of Obama foreign policy, the failures of Obama domestic policy, the failure of ObamaCare, the failure of ObamaTrade, the failure of fairness, the failure to unite, the failure of the political system establishment, the failure of the academic establishment, the failure of race relations, the failure of free speech to counter political correctness, the failure of leaders to speak the truth.

Instead of what Americans want Hillary talks about what Hillary wants to talk about. Hell with that. Hillary2016 is a muddled message mess and today some few speak out like we did when it mattered

 

Of course the D-women in the Senate are whining about “sexism” and how hard it is to be a female candidate. Ladies, ladies, ladies, competition is hard work, men do it every single day. It’s not exclusive to you.  The Hill  has a very unique article quoting the Senators on their difficulties of actually having to compete for a job they want and, of course blaming sexism. Does anyone remember how those very same women trashed Geraldine Ferraro or Sarah Palin? How about Governor Haley? Carly Fiorina? Not a peep out of those hags on behalf of any of those women. Women, the left do not agree with, get savaged on a daily basis by other women, especially in the political arena. How dare anyone thwart history by not voting in the “first woman President”.

Sanders supporters are finding out, finally, how the “fix” is in for the Dem nominee (that would be Hillary). This is my shocked face Baby Owl Freakout

Poor little darlings actually think petitions will change the stink of the Dem Party. Oh, to be that naïve. Don’t they know it’s Hillarys’ turn? (Rhetorical question). I think there is someone waiting in the wings who will end up being the nominee at the Dem Convention. Especially since Harry Reid said how much fun it would be to have a brokered convention. Don’t those Sanders supporters know their votes are worthless to the DNC? Heads up cupcakes, the Dems cheat, lie and steal and always have. Nothing will change that! It’s been 15 years since I left the Dem Party, it’s actually gotten worse. American Thinker

It took them long enough! Perhaps naively believing the all the fine rhetoric Democrats use to mask their embrace of crony capitalism, the young supporters of Bernie Sanders assumed that by getting a 22% margin of victory in New Hampshire their guy would win a majority of delegates. I have warned them, and now they are catching on.

 

 

Update: Court dates have finally finished. The biological mother of our youngest finally signed to give up parental rights. Adoption proceedings for both are now underway. There have been days I thought it would never get to this point.

 

 

Dreary Little Man

After watching the GOP debate, I have finally realized why all the hype about Trump and the excitement that so many feel when he speaks. I do not think it’s all about PC being tossed out the window by him. What so many of us yearn for is a President telling us we are a country with positive traits, not the Dreary Little Man in the White House castigating us time and again. We wonder how the Dreary Little Man can say the recession is over when 93% of the counties in our country have not recovered from said recession.

from the Wall Street Journal

Six Years Later, 93% of U.S. Counties Haven’t Recovered From Recession, Study Finds

He is not “brilliant” and is overrated by the lapdog media in spite of all the proof otherwise. He can’t form a coherent sentence without a teleprompter. His policies have done little for the average American and make it harder for small business to grow or even start up. His ABC bureaucracies have hurt the poor tremendously and many of his “executive actions” have been tossed by challenges in the courts as Unconstitutional. Laws passed by Congress are ignored in favor of executive decisions.

The left likes to parse the statistics and make it seem those who disagree with the Dreary Little Man are totally wrong but, while at times their statements can be somewhat inflated, the truth is still out there. While 100% of jobs created did not go to immigrants the majority of them did. As the author has admitted. Parsing this doesn’t change the facts that foreign workers are displacing American workers.

If he wants to speak of nearly 9 million new jobs, then he has to accept that about 70 percent, not 100 percent, went to immigrants.

I’m sure Val-J is smiling over this….Free Beacon

Hossein Salami, deputy commander of the IRGC, which is responsible for boarding the U.S. ships and arresting the sailors, claimed in recent remarks, the “American sailors started crying after arrest, but the kindness of our Guard made them feel calm.”

Hossein went on to brag that the incident provides definitive evidence of the Iranian military’s supremacy in the region.

“Since the end of the Second World War, no country has been able to arrest American military personnel,” the commander said, according to an independent translation of his Persian-language remarks made Friday during a “martyrs’ commemoration ceremony” in Isfahan.

Since the capture and release of the U.S. sailors this week, critics of the Obama administration’s handling of the situation have expressed embarrassment at State Department’s move to profusely thank Iran, despite its release of photos depicting the sailors on their knees with their hands held over their heads.

The Dreary Little Man in the White House, and his equally dreary SoS Kerry, are in total denial about the release of the Americans held in Evin prison. It basically was to tamp down the hostility felt toward Iran for taking our sailors in international waters. They actually think the American public will go along with this phony ploy by Iran and the State Dept. While I am truly happy for the families of those Americans who were released, I am not happy with all the lies being told to the American public. The price we will be paying in the future for this capitulation will be enormous. Seven of those Iranians released through clemency by President Dreary were involved in covert operations to obtain information and, to add insult to injury, they will be allowed to stay in the US.

It’s a great day to be Iranian. Desperate much Dreary Little Man?

We’re seriously turning around and rewarding them with rich new economic activities and billions of dollars in relief? The broad lifting of these sanctions not only makes us look weak, but has a wide ranging effect on the rest of the world. One aspect of this phenomenon was already seen this week as oil prices tanked further on the prospect of additional Iranian crude flooding the market.

Yes, it’s a great day indeed… to be an Iranian. Should we really expect any of our allies to put their faith in us today?

Merry Christmas To Everyone

 

As most of you know we are fostering two babies. The last month has been filled with court dates, visits from social services, and the push for permanent custody. It has been very stressful for all of us. Finally, adoption proceedings will be moving along for the oldest (19 months). The greatest gift we could ever get during the Season of Love and Joy. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we move forward to get full custody of the youngest (17 months old).

A special Christmas message to Calistress;  There are times in our lives when love and honor come before everything else. This past month has been one of those times. While you spend your time with pathetic drivel trying to insult and degrade, I have chosen to spend mine making a better and more joyful life for two tiny little girls. What have you done lately to make the world a better place? By commenting, you have given me more resolve to keep on posting. I want to personally thank you but this will have to suffice. Have a very Merry Christmas!

Our babies  Babies at Christmas so excited by the “pretty” that they hugged each other.

 

Happy Thanksgiving

Whether you are with a family of 20 or a family of two, there is so much to be grateful for in this big, beautiful, wonderful, freedom loving country. Thanks to everyone who comes here to read my little rants. Thanksgiving

This post will expand a bit later. Check back for more after dinner.

Bitter Clinger

Obama talks about all us flyover states as bitter clingers but, exposes his own bitter clinging to a failed policy on ISIS/ISIL. He berates 60% of the populace for religious discrimination but, the slaughter of thousands of Christians and minority sects by the hands of Islamist nutters doesn’t seem to phase his utopian dreaming. Islamists are crucifying children and raping and enslaving women and he stays mum. How they bragged about taking out Jihadi John but, ISIS headquarters was within a few blocks of there and it was avoided at all cost (civilians may have been in the building). One picture speaks a thousand words. American Thinker

ISIS

Note that the location of the drone strike on Jihadi John appears to be but a few city blocks from a large building marked “ISIS Main HQ.” Does the question not immediately arise in your mind why we would target a specific human enemy and yet leave perhaps hundreds of them alive and well to continue to conduct their war against us?

Will you please explain this strategy, Mr. Commander-in Chief?

Everything Obama touches is an abject failure, domestic and foreign. He was and still is a very small fish in a very large pond. Obama is the bitter man clinging to a philosophy that has caused world wide damage. Even The Dems are telling Obama to back off his bitter clinging.  WaPo  suggests Obama needs to grow up and do something to help the people being slaughtered by ISIS/ISIL.

If ever a single sentence summed up a media mindset, it was when CNN’s Jim Acosta, in language simply not used in White House news conferences, asked Obama today in Turkey: “Why can’t we take out these bastards?”

Other journalists joined in the markedly aggressive line of questioning, pressing the president on why he had underestimated the threat from ISIS, why he hasn’t taken stronger action, essentially why he has been leading from behind. At one point Obama complained that the questions were getting repetitive — which simply underscored that his answers were not satisfying the press corps.

The shift in tone is remarkable, both in its impatient focus on terrorism after the coordinated murder of 129 people in France, and in demanding accountability from a president who has often received soft treatment in the past.

While this may not last long, at least the media is finally paying attention instead of fawning over Obama as they have for the past seven years (it feels like an eternity).

The Hill is quoting some very liberal thinkers.

“I don’t want him shooting from the hip and making empty threats, but I think he could have done a better job in articulating the anger that many people feel toward what happened in not only Paris but Beirut as well,” said Democratic strategist Jim Manley, a former adviser to Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).
“What happened in Paris and in Beirut is going to require an aggressive response.”

Obama tries to shame everyone who disagrees with him. He says we are afraid of widows and orphans but, none of that is true. Where was he when so many of us were begging him to save the Yazidis? Where was he when so many were begging him to help the Kurds? Where was he when his declared “red line” in Syria was crossed by Assad? He is the one who should be shamed. He is directly responsible for the genocide occurring in the ME, not us. Just because he feels guilty doesn’t mean anyone else should feel that way. He made the decision to sit back and watch all of it happen. He and Clinton are also directly responsible for the mess in Libya. They created all of this mess and don’t want to own it. They are moral cowards and, to deride the American public because of their failures is the height of hypocrisy.

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”- MLK Jr.

Thank You for Your Service

Vet 2015

To get to you, they have to get through them first. Throughout our history the men and women who have served and still serve have made sure that didn’t happen through diligence and courage. Today we honor their service to our country. While you’re out and about today, if you happen to see a Vet, don’t forget to walk up and thank them. They have always stood between us and the ugly.

 

Call, write, email, this has got to end. MSN.com

The Department of Veterans Affairs doled out more than $142 million in bonuses to executives and employees for performance in 2014 even as scandals over veterans’ health care and other issues racked the agency.

Among the recipients were claims processors in a Philadelphia benefits office that investigators dubbed the worst in the country last year. They received $300 to $900 each. Managers in Tomah, Wis., got $1,000 to $4,000, even though they oversaw the over-prescription of opiates to veterans – one of whom died.

The VA also rewarded executives who managed construction of a facility in Denver, a disastrous project years overdue and more than $1 billion over budget. They took home $4,000 to $8,000 each. And in St. Cloud, Minn., where an internal investigation report last year outlined mismanagement that led to mass resignations of health care providers, the chief of staff cited by investigators received a performance bonus of almost $4,000.

 

“A Veteran is someone, who at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to “The United States of America”, for an amount of “up to and including my life”.

That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.- Weasel Zippers
