Musings on the Week

June 15, 2019


Media – “The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American people!” Donald Trump. 

Politics – America does not have an anti-Semitic problem; American politics has an anti-Semitic problem fueled by left wing media sycophants.

Politics – The most incompetently managed, crime-ridden cities in the country are run solely by Democrats, so if Democrats can’t run cities why trust them to run the country?

Politics – Liberals live in an “alternative reality where Trump colluded with Russians to win the election, all Republicans are racists, and climate change is millennial’s World War III.

Politics – All the Democrat environment plans, whether called Green New Deal, Clean Energy Revolution, Global Climate Mobilization, make no sense since they will cost trillions in hopes of preventing the thermometer from rising a fraction of a degree by the year 2100.

Politics – Democrats have floated any number of impeachment theories, including bigotry, abuse of power, contempt of Congress, emoluments, Russia collusion, obstruction of justice and they have all have failed the reality test leaving Democrats with no realistic alternative.

Politics – The latest Harvard Harris poll found 60% of Democrats find their presidential field “underwhelming,” turned off by the vitriol and constant carping against President Trump.

Media – Donald Trump is currently enjoying polls that are about equal to or better than where both Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were at this juncture in their presidencies

Media – Contrary to the liberal mainstream media pundits and the liberal polling groups, Trump is a favorite to be re-elected, despite a liberal false narrative of political peril.

Media - “I want to see an honest press. When I started off today by saying that it's so important to the public to get an honest press. The press — the public doesn't believe you people anymore.” Donald Trump. 

Economy – Expanded federal spending extended the duration and severity of FDR’s Great Depression and the same approach had the same result in Obama’s Great Recession.

Healthcare – The liberal slippery slope has begun with legalized abortion up to and including birth will then lead to legalized euthanasia of the seriously ill and disabled, then expanded to those with neuromuscular disabilities or psychiatric illnesses and then legalized suicide.

Healthcare – Medicare-for-All” is the federal government nationalizing the health care system, abolishing private insurance, and federalizing care, like the DMV and the IRS.

Healthcare – 82% oppose banning private insurance companies and requiring everybody to get their medical coverage through the federal government in the "Medicare for All" plan.

Transportation – Electric vehicles are being produced, not based on consumer demand, but rather government mandates and subsidies, and hysteria over man-made global warming.

Immigration – About 87% of illegal aliens recently released by DHS into the U.S. did not show up to their asylum hearings, then straining resources to track down and deport delinquents.

Energy – Pacific Gas & Electric’s bankruptcy revealed the company may dump its state-mandated renewable energy source contracts that cost up to 800% more than market rates.

Environment – There is no "science" in global warming predictions of doom, no experimental validation at all, only flawed computer models, which is why it is a religion, not a science.

Environment – How many times must the “Climate Change Cult” trumpet an apocryphal prediction that fails to occur before the public discovers these are hysterical idiots?

Family – Romantic attraction between adults of the same sex is a purely erotic concept, not an ontological one (i.e., not rooted in a child's being).

Civil Rights – Anti-Christian bigotry is the only form of acceptable intolerance remaining in this country, encouraged by our "tolerant" friends in academia, the media, and entertainment.

Sexuality – Pride” parades are silly, whether it is a Gay Pride Parade or a Straight Pride Parade, expressing solidarity with a subset of the population and excluding outsiders.

Media – “If in other lands the press and books and literature of all kinds are censored, we must redouble our efforts here to keep them free.” Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Foreign Policy – Looking around the globe, Donald Trump is the new conservative normal, joining UK’s Nigel Farage, Australia’s Scott Morrison, Hungary’s Viktor Orban, France’s Marine Le Pen, Italy’s Matteo Salvini, Brazil’s Jair Bolsonaro, and Israel’s Bibi Netanyahu.

GWOT – The Islamic Sharia laws are incompatible with the United States Constitution!

GWOT – America cannot chose to end the Global War on Terror because Islamic jihadists started this war and it will only end when they either think they won or realize they lost.

GWOT – The jihad on Christians began with Muhammad, was carried out by early caliphs, and continues to this day by the jihadis of the world, and sometimes “everyday” Muslims.

China – America doesn’t get to choose whether or not to start another cold war because China chose to start this cold war already, so America cannot just lie down and lose.

China – Since China transitioned from a communist command economy in 1993, falsifying provincial level data is a common problem due to a lack of “political independence.”
