Trump’s good works, cont’d

AS THOSE WHO vote Democrat continue to writhe on the floor, screaming, because Hillary blew “her turn,” the good works of the Blond Bomber soldier on. To wit:

thumb-up-icon-back-fillThe share of American workers satisfied with their paychecks rose last year, and “the biggest leap came from millennials and Generation Z, whose enthusiasm for their compensation shot from 36% in 2017 to nearly 46% a year later,” The Wall Street Journal reports.

In all, nearly 54% of U.S. workers said they were satisfied with their jobs in 2018, the highest share reported in more than two decades.

But wait, there’s more:

thumb-up-icon-back-fillEver since President Trump insisted that China halt exports of illicit opioids to the United States, the flow of lethal fentanyl-style drugs coming to America from China has collapsed, David Fickling writes for Bloomberg. “It could be that 2019 is the year when the U.S. finally started to turn the tide in the opium war,” he says. “What’s more, the success may be coming as a result of that most improbable activity, cooperation between the U.S. and Chinese governments.”

Hold onto your MAGA hats, there’s even more:

thumb-up-icon-back-fill“To say that many liberal elites have all but given up on educating low-income minorities might seem like an overstatement. But when you consider the state of public education in our inner cities, and the priorities of those in charge, it’s hard to draw any other conclusion,” Jason Riley writes in The Wall Street Journal. The racial achievement gap is a main driver of inequality in New York City, for example, where Democrat Mayor Bill De Blasio is looking to shut down the charter schools where mostly low-income students have passage rates of greater than 90 percent for math and English.

That’s right. De Blasio wants to shut non-government schools in spite of their doing a far better job of educating students than do government/union schools.

I imagine you’ve not read any of the positive news I just cited, and that’s because the corrupt mainstream media ignores good Trump news. Again, I recommend you go to the White House website and subscribe to newsletters.

Get it straight from the horse’s mouth. You won’t get it elsewhere. Sad.

And here’s a bonus:

Mohammedans and machine guns

Charlie

COWARDLY NEWS OUTLETS like the collectivist New York Times won’t publish this cover from Charlie Hebdo, but The (Intrepid) Unseen Moon — from the safety of a mountaintop in the middle of Mexico, a country where the Mohammedan population is happily about 0.01 percent — knows no fear.

The crime here is that Mohammedans say you cannot depict Mohammed at all, or you’ll have your head chopped off. Something like that. It’s a really loving religion. I urge you to pass this cartoon along.

* * * *

Moving on now to a second, and perhaps related, issue: guns. Due to some tragic shootings in the United States in recent years committed by lunatics, the collectivists have been screaming and fainting from the vapors because they cannot get the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment canceled.

As if that would help. There are already guns everywhere. The horse is out of the barn. The collectivists would also like to rescind the First Amendment, but that another issue.

EastwoodThis has created a backlash among traditional Americans, who make up the majority of the citizenry. Collectivists collect on the coasts where they sip white wine in the east and make movies in the west. And they elect dummkopfs like Bill de Blasio in the east and Jerry Brown in the west.

Normal people are flocking to gun stores and arming themselves. This is, in part, due to the collectivist attack on the Constitution. It may also be due to bloodthirsty Mohammedans moving into the neighborhood.

Imagine my broad smile the other day on finding this online. It’s a new firing range in Orlando, Florida, called Machine Gun America. It made my day.

For those of you who want a ranking of machine guns, go here, brought to you by the Washington Free Beacon, a very good news source. In spite of what Leftists would have you think, it’s almost impossible to legally own a fully automatic rifle, but if you go to Machine Gun America, you can let ‘er rip.

Just plain nuts

THE UNITED STATES of America has gone absolutely goofy.

Let’s look at a few recent examples, starting with Barry Obama and his gang. They are unable to mouth the term “Islamic terrorism.” This is in spite of Islamic terrorism being the most violent, grisly phenomenon in today’s world.

Most Mohammedans are not terrorists, but many — probably most — silently cheer the terrorists. Of course, they do not consider them terrorists. They are just soldiers of Mohammed.

goofyMost of the Arab world is populated by silent co-conspirators. They broke that silence on 9/11 when there were joyous street celebrations from Baghdad to Beirut, Riyadh to Tehran, and every place in between. So much for their not being in agreement.

The current situation involves political correctness — that extremely dangerous, left-wing, Kumbaya nonsense with a cute name — which holds that no one must be “offended” and that all cultures have value and merit respect. All cultures do not have value. Some are corrupt and rotten.

Here is example No. 1.  Duke University has approved a weekly Mohammedan “call to prayer” that will be chanted from the Duke campus bell tower every Friday at 1 p.m. During the three-minute chant, which will be “moderately amplified,” the Duke campus will sound like Mecca. This is nuts.

Here is example No. 2. The Oxford University Press (notice the frequency of “university,” which is telling) will ban the words sausage and pig in its children’s books to avoid — are you ready? — “offending” Mohammedans and Jews.

Of course, it’s not really Jews they’re worried about, is it? It’s Mohammedans. This is nuts.

Moving on to example No. 3, we hear conservative (no surprise there) British political leader Nigel Farage say there are areas in the United Kingdom that have been virtually taken over by Mohammedans, “Muslim ghettos” where non-Mohammedans are excluded.

We also learn that in parts of London there are Mohammedan religious police patrolling streets for non-Mohammedan activity. This is nuts.

Example No. 4 has nothing to do with Mohammedans specifically. It’s a different sort of politically correct asininity.

Collectivist New York Mayor Bill de Blasio announced a new ID card that all residents over the age of 14 can get, regardless of immigration status, which means illegal aliens can get one.

De Blasio came into office due to a critically low voter turnout, plus most of those who voted are clueless.

De Blasio, promoting the new card, said, “We don’t want any of our fellow New Yorkers to feel like second-class citizens.” He is referring to people who are not citizens at all. This is completely nuts.

All of this illustrates the deepening dark hole into which the flaky, Utopian Left is taking what was long the superior Judeo-Christian culture of Western Europe and North America. Weep.

(UPDATE: Due to intense blowback from sensible people, Duke has reversed its decision to broadcast the Mohammedan call to prayer. This does not cancel the nuttiness exhibited by Duke in making the decision in the first place.)

American Looney Tunes

ducksLET’S KICK OFF 2014 with a look at nuttiness in the United States. The well is deep, wide and murky, full of salamanders and creepy-crawleys.

First, there’s a reality show — wildly popular, I hear — called Duck Dynasty. It’s about a family of rednecks in Louisiana, my old state. The guys have long beards and often look like they need to wash their faces.

But that’s so the ducks won’t see them, one supposes. These guys shoot ducks. Now while they look like a band of yahoos, they also are millionaires. Sharp rednecks.

Christians too, they claim. Recently, one of these bearded guys, an older one, said unkind things about gay folks. I believe bestiality was uttered in the same sentence. Ouch!

The elitist, collectivist media went nuts, plus some gay group that you’re required to listen to. The old redneck was fired from the show, but then he was hired again. Remember these guys are millionaires, and money talks. Plus, the show is wildly popular.

More popular than the “gay community,” it seems.

I know gay guys, and I have known folks like these duck hunters. There are good and bad people in both camps. But in this dust-up, I’m on the side of the duck hunters because I believe one must be allowed to speak one’s opinion if it’s done without cussin’.

Diversity rules!

crackersA sideshow to the above conflict debuted when the restaurant chain called Cracker Barrel pulled Duck Dynasty gear off their shelves.

That was really dumb.

Cracker Barrel’s customer base is precisely the kind of folks who would share the values of the duck hunters. So what the restaurant chain did was — totally on its own; nobody had protested — take a shotgun off the wall, slide in a shell, and shoot itself in the foot. And pen a press release so we’d know.

Kinda funny, actually. And pathetic at the same time.

Why did they drag themselves into this conflict? It is a lovely illustration of how the political correctness legions have bludgeoned everyone into believing any group labeled “a minority” must be genuflected to without hesitation.

Cracker Barrel believed it was launching a preemptive strike, protecting itself. But it had to sew its foot back on and issue an apology. I loved that.

PagliaMy favorite lesbian in this world is Camille Paglia who has recently been getting fresh exposure.

Camille is an anomaly, a Democrat who makes sense, one who not only does not parrot the politically correct line, but opposes it.

Paglia makes a great argument for the fact that radical feminism is destroying America by turning its men into pantywaists and wusses.

Link 1, The Wall Street Journal.

Link 2, Salon, the pinko website.

Oddly, Paglia voted for Obama, leaving me puzzled. She’s not perfect.

sheepWhile the collectivists went bonkers over the duck guy’s unkind remarks about homosexuality, they did not hesitate a moment to mock Mitt Romney’s black grandchild whom they called a “black sheep.”

Sure, the collectivist neighborhoods idolize black folks, put them on pedestals, but only if they are in families that vote Democrat.

If you missed it, go here. The low-rated MSNBC, of course. Bad people.

The folks in question, primarily the show’s silly host, Melissa Harris-Perry, attempted to apologize later, but good folks will reject that bogus apology.

Isn’t Harris-Perry the same woman who said Santa Claus should be a penguin? So not to offend black people? I could be wrong on that, but somebody said it.

slaveryNew York City’s new mayor, the collectivist Bill De Blasio, was sworn in yesterday, a move the city will live to regret. Think Detroit.

De Blasio voluntarily honeymooned in the communist dictatorship of Cuba. The whole world out there, and he honeymoons in Cuba.

A black pastor, Fred Lucas, whom De Blasio picked to deliver the obligatory spiritual words chose slavery as his theme. He repeated words like plantation, repression, emancipation, captives, bondage, shackles and masters, ad nauseam.

Time to move on, pastor. Think Oprah and Obama.

Then he asked to be freed “from political correctness.” (Put howling laugh track here.)

The tone of the event is illustrated beautifully by a fellow standing behind Lucas, sporting an African-style beanie as if he’s at a coronation in Benin or Botswana.

Multiculturalism. Ain’t it grand?

American nuttiness knows no limits these days. It’s great to live in Mexico.
