Right-wing digest

ANYONE WHO’S been passing through here for at least a year knows I’m a Trump fan. I voted for him long-distance and think he’s not only a breath of fresh air in Washington but that he’s trying to fulfill his campaign promises in spite of opposition from both Democrats and Republicans.

donIf given the chance, I’ll vote for him again.

Trump, like me, is ostensibly a Republican, but I don’t think he’s much of one, and neither am I. I’m Republican simply because it’s the only voting option in America that is not the Democrat Party, which was my party for decades.

The Democrat Party has become extremist, succumbing to political correctness, pie-in-the-sky socialism, and race-baiting, among countless other sins.

If you follow conservative news sources, you know that Trump is having a slow slog due to opposition from both Democrats and, incredibly, Republicans. Most U.S. politicians, no matter the party, are corrupt, self-serving, nincompoops.

If you follow left-wing news sources, you know that Trump is an orange-haired monster married to a prostitute.* His daily life is dedicated to lynching “negros,” grabbing women’s hoohahs and persecuting Mohammedans.

Speaking of news sources, I’m going to tell you some good conservative ones. I read them every morning online. I do not subscribe to actual newspapers. Very few people in Mexico do, and I don’t watch television news.

I’m strictly an online guy.

I pay virtually no attention to Mexican news. Although I vote here, I let Mexico take care of itself — and hope for the best.

(Amusingly, a few years ago, I was asked to be the honcho of our local polling station. An all-day commitment, I turned it down. Another reason was that I did not think my Mexican neighbors would appreciate a Gringo overseeing their voting.)

But the title of this post is its purpose. I am sharing my conservative news sources with you. Some right-wing sources are as silly as left-wing ones.

Read mine, however, and you’ll get smarter.

What may be surprising is that I read neither Breitbart nor Fox’s websites. I dodge Breitbart because they focus too much on trivialities, and they incredibly fired a staffer months back over a purely PC issue.

I don’t read Fox’s website because the company stupidly threw Bill O’Reilly overboard. I don’t always agree with Bill, mostly due to his Catholicism, but he was the heart of Fox. Plus, Fox’s website is heavy on silly showbiz gossip.

Without further ado, here’s where you can get some straight-shooting conservative coverage with a minimum of showbiz fluff and wacky conspiracy theories:

  1. The Washington Times, solid, sober coverage that you often don’t get in that other Washington newspaper.
  2. The Daily Caller.
  3. The Gateway Pundit.
  4. The Daily Wire, Ben Shapiro’s home. Try to ignore the pop-up pushing his free book.
  5. Truth Revolt.

I know there are lots of others, but these are my Fav Five.

melania* Melania is growing on me. I initially considered her little more than a trophy wife. She is that, but I like her. She’s buena gente. After Ivana and Marla, Trump only had one way to go: up. And he did.

Trump: the reaction

FOR EVERY ACTION, there is a reaction.

Donald Trump is a reaction. Below are a few examples of the actions to which The Donald is the reaction. These examples have been growing for decades. People are fed up.

Normal people, that is.

They are “mad as hell, and they’re not going to take it anymore,” a paraphrase you may recall from the 1976 movie Network.

uturnThe actions began to increase markedly after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, which gave America a sigh of relief and the freedom to focus on trivialities and stupidities.

The culture spiraled downward rapidly.

The following list just touches on the absurdities coursing through the veins of America. It is a long list, and you can flesh it out easily. You know you can.

  1. Choose your own gender. Choose your own public restroom.
  2. Black lives matter. Only black lives matter.
  3. Shout down and threaten non-leftist speakers at elite universities.
  4. Everyone who disagrees with you is a racist.
  5. Mohammedan terrorists are our pals.
  6. Israel is bad.
  7. Christians are evil and idiotic.
  8. Open borders.
  9. Sanctuary cities.
  10. Gay marriages.
  11. “White privilege.”
  12. America is a bad nation.
  13. Common Core (i.e. leftist indoctrination).
  14. Ignore the Constitution.
  15. Barack Hussein Obama.
  16. His 2009 Apology Tour.
  17. That Nobel Peace Prize.
  18. “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
  19. “Workplace violence.”
  20. Women in the Marine Corps infantry.
  21. Policemen are murderers.
  22. Lena Dunham.
  23. Halloween costume enforcement.
  24. Beyoncé half-time shows in black leather.
  25. Eric Holder’s gun-running.
  26. Wearing little sombreros to a party is godawful.

These things and plenty more of their ilk have given rise to The Donald. You have only yourself to blame.

A silly rape story

A YOUNG WOMAN named Lena Dunham, who may be the silliest person in the collectivist neighborhood these days — and that’s saying a lot — is crying rape almost a decade after the event.

Lena has written a memoir, you see, in spite of being just 28 years old. Lena endlessly self-promotes and suffers delusions of importance, and now she’s a rape victim. The perpetrator was a Republican! … she says. He also was mustachioed, Lena reveals. A mustachioed Republican. What could be more repellent?

lenaThis likely is the first time ever than a rapist’s political leanings have entered the story told by an alleged victim. But since little is more important to a collectivist than politics, pants up or down, the revelation is understandable.

I found Lena’s story on my favorite news website, Breitbart. If you click on that link you can read some repugnant details that Lena’s memoir reveals, details I will not mention due to this being a G-rated website. Well, most of the time. These details have to do with fingers and peeing in parking lots. I do have standards.

Lena reveals that during this sex act she was drunk and high on Xanax and cocaine. Not only that, she was talking dirty to him “in an attempt to convince herself that she was giving consent.” Sure, that was it. I think she was talking dirty to him because she was stoned out of her mind and wanted to talk dirty.

Collectivists are fans of potty talk even on the nicest of days.

When Lena regained her wits the following day — you know, after the cocaine, Xanax and tequila had worn off — she did not consider herself as having been raped, she says. It was only when her roommate interpreted it as rape that she decided she had been raped, maybe.

She apparently brushed it off until years later when she was shooting the breeze with co-writers for some television show she apparently appears on. Her co-writers labeled it rape then too, not Lena.

But here in her memoirs, she includes the juicy incident. Makes herself a rape victim!

Which brings us to the point of this post: First off, I don’t think Lena was raped, but let’s assume she was for the sake of argument. “Without her consent,” which is not convincing in light of her revelation that she was dealing him some dirty talk during the encounter. Do me, big boy!  Likely far more colorful. Imagine.

It has long been feminist gospel that women can never, ever, in any way whatsoever, share the blame for being raped. This is nonsense. Each case is different. Sometimes they do not. Sometimes they do.

Let’s take a common example, one related to Lena’s yarn. If a freshman coed goes to a frat party, chugs booze till she’s cross-eyed and can’t stand up, and some guy slips off her knickers, the coed shares the blame.

If you disagree, then you will also disagree with these analogies:

1. Someone parks his Mercedes in a bad neighborhood and leaves the door unlocked and the keys in the ignition. The car is stolen.  Auto theft is illegal, but the Mercedes owner is partly to blame.

2. A foolish teenager accepts a dare to run across a busy freeway on a dark night. He is hit by a drunk driver and hospitalized. Though drunk driving is illegal, the teenager shares the blame for being hit.

Coeds who get drunk at frat parties share the blame for unpleasant consequences.

Lena Dunhams who imbibe booze, cocaine and Xanax also share the blame.

Especially when they talk dirty during the “crime.”

(Note1: A couple of years ago I addressed this topic. Two or three readers hit the ceiling, saying they had been raped or someone they knew had been and that it was dreadful and in no way their fault. I do not dispute that in the slightest. Some rape victims, likely most, are not to blame. But some are, partially. In this instance, Lena shared the blame big-time. This is just more limelight for her. It got her on Howard Stern.)

(Note 2: Lena’s grandparents must be so proud of her and her memoirs.)
