Your daily chuckle

I’M A YUGE fan of President Trump, a man I call the Blond Bomber, not for his involvement in overseas wars because he’s not a fan of that, but for the daily raspberries he lobs into the leftist camp. He is such fun!

And this is a fun, brief video. The Blond Bomber’s approval rating has soared following his masterful State of the Union speech.

On to 2020!

Class acts!

 

IT’S ALWAYS a hoot to watch videos like the above. This one has the lovely Alicia Powe interviewing participants in the recent “Women’s March” in Washington D.C.

What stands out about these events is that the participants are colossally clueless. The Women’s March was particularly notable for two things — aside from cluelessness — Jew Hate and knitted versions of female reproductive organs squatting on their heads.

These are very classy people.

They loathe President Trump but are hard-pressed to state coherently why they feel that way. They just, ya know, do!

A few months ago, I opened a Facebook account under my real name in large part to connect with my former colleagues in the newspaper business. I was appalled at what I encountered: rampant Trump hate.

I deleted the Facebook account soon after.

A few weeks ago, I exchanged emails with an old friend from those days. He also was in the news biz. I related that we had elected a screwy president recently in Mexico. His response was that Trump was even worse.

I asked what it was about Trump that he disliked. He responded that he was a (blankety-blank) liar. I asked if he could give me an example of Trump’s lying. I offered some documented examples of Democrat lies.

  1. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
  2. I did not have sex with (Monica Lewinsky).
  3. Bengazi was caused by a video.

I have not heard back from him.

I imagine he’s still hunting an example of Trump’s lying.

I wonder if he’s knitting female genitalia to put on his head.

Recess with Huckabee

MIKE HUCKABEE, a former governor of Arkansas, a former Baptist minister, a former presidential aspirant, a bass guitar player and the dad of President Trump’s press secretary, is one of my favorite fellows.

Neither Mike nor his daughter, the wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a chip off the ole block, suffer fools gladly.

As we all know, politicos in the Democrat Party have been screaming and promising to impeach the Blond Bomber since Day One. Mike takes five minutes to put that silliness into perspective.

And then they came for me

IF YOU’RE PAYING attention to the nefarious stuff going on around you, you know that Silicon Valley leftists, which is to say 95 percent of Silicon Valley, a.k.a. Masters of the Universe, are doing everything possible to eliminate conservative voices.

They would use railway boxcars to the ovens were it possible. Since it is not possible just yet, they employ other dark tactics.

One method, and it’s very effective so far, is to make it impossible for conservatives to make a living online. Payment processors like PayPal and Patreon simply delete accounts of people they disagree with politically.

YouTube is fond of deleting channels, some of which are cash conduits, of conservatives. If you’re not particularly worked up about this because it does not affect you personally, I direct your attention to the famous poem by German pastor Martin Niemöller:

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out —
     Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out —
     Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out —
     Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.

Niemöller was referring to the Nazis, who also silenced people with differing opinions.

Patreon recently deleted the account of popular YouTuber Sargon of Akkad, which is the nom de internet of a mild-mannered British conservative whose real name is Carl Benjamin, a move that has created quite a stir. Patreon may have gone one step too far with Benjamin.

Hippie singer and Patreon co-founder Jack Conte reacts to the extensive blowback from the Sargon censorship in the above video. Enjoy.
