THE DEMOCRATS’ endless effort to remove a duly elected president from office because they just don’t like him has flopped in its latest installment.
Impeachment reached a dead end today due to no evidence — just like the Democrats’ Russian collusion pipe dream. What will they invent next? Almost all of the politicians leading the removal hysteria hail from either New York or California.
Have you noticed that?
Did you see the State of the Union Address, perhaps the best in U.S. history? It was stirring and spectacular. If you missed it, here’s another opportunity.
Did you see the dour Democrats dressed in white like those Cuban “Ladies in White” who oppose their dictatorship? Did you see those Mohammedan Democrats playing with their cell phones? Did you see Nancy Pelosi tearing up her copy of Trump’s speech?
Were you appalled? It was appalling.
And it certainly won many more votes for Trump in November.
But before then, my sharp Canadian reader who goes by the moniker Brent Morrow fulfilled my headgear dreams with this photo he emailed to me.
I look sharper in this one than in the cheesy version I purchased from China. Thanks, Brent!
As I’ve mentioned numerous times before, if you want accurate information about the Trump administration and its many accomplishments, the best place to get it is on the White House website. Scroll down to the bottom and sign up for White House updates.
WE SHOULD have long departed the monsoon season here, so last week on a bright, sunny day, the latest in a fairly long line of bright, sunny days, I decided to raise two of the three canvas curtains on the upstairs terraza.
The three of them had been down since June when the monsoon season began. Guess what happened. That very afternoon, dark clouds appeared and some light rain fell. I lowered the curtains again. Maybe I’ll raise them again in mid-January.
Dang climate change! Why doesn’t Greta come to Mexico and snarl? We need her.
Curtains up or curtains down, it’s a great place to sit. I go out there at times with my Kindle when I have free moments in my harried, jam-packed days. I sit, begin reading … and nod off. It’s stunningly relaxing out there. The chairs, like the air, are soft.
Of late I’ve become more aware of changes brought by advancing age. The urge to get things done is reduced. You’d think the urge to get things done would increase due to a shortening timeline, but that’s not what happens. You shrug. Go with that old flow.
As Hillary Clinton famously said: What difference does it make?
I still get stuff done but in stages. Since it hasn’t rained much in recent weeks — apart from that light sprinkle I mentioned — it’s time to start watering the yard by hand. I have hoses rolled up here and there. Last week, I rolled out the longest one into the grass.
That was enough work for one day.
A few days later, I rolled out another to make it longer because the Hacienda’s yard, unfortunately, is too large. Yesterday, I connected the two. Whew! This morning, using another hose altogether, one beyond the Alamo Wall, I watered the ivy on the wall’s backside plus some greenery in planters outside my child bride’s pastry kitchen.
I breathed a sigh of satisfaction. Things are being done.
Want to hear an amusing story?
During the last presidential election, I noticed somewhere online that my last ex-wife was a Bernie supporter. Yes, it’s shocking, but she lacked my political wisdom due to my being here in Mexico while she remains unguided in Houston.
I’ve never been certain that she reads The Unseen Moon, but a few months ago, she emailed to ask why I was a Trump fan, proving — to her credit — that she is a Moon fan. I gave her a few of the many available great reasons, and I got no response.
Her birthday is December 6, so I sent her a Trump MAGA cap via Amazon, the embroidered version, not the cheaper painted variety. Again, silence. So few Democrats nowadays sport a sense of humor. We conservatives laugh a lot. We are happy people.
Shortly before sending the MAGA cap to my second ex-wife, I ordered one for myself from China via eBay, a cheap, painted version. I would have purchased the pricier, embroidered cap were I fairly sure it would arrive intact.
Some of you may recall what happened to the Trump coffee mug I ordered from eBay in 2017, not long after the Blond Bomber invaded the Oval Office. The mug was removed from its bubble wrap by Mexican Customs, broken into about 10 pieces, repackaged and sent on to me. I glued the larger pieces together, and now it’s a pen holder on my desk.
Take that, disgruntled paisanos!
My cap is en route. Be interesting to see if I get it in one piece. Sad.
Maybe now I’ll go back to the yard and water two or three more plants. Or connect two more hoses. As usual, there is no rush.
Oh, there’s a guy named José here painting, gussying up the Hacienda. I’ll have photos on that when he finishes. Probably be a week or more. We like to be stylin’.
The Hacienda is always cutting edge, both the buildings and the occupants.
AMERICA HAS lots to be happy about due to wide-ranging improvements made by the Trump Administration. Economy up, unemployment down, wars down, regulations down. Things are looking fine. Here’s a four-minute video highlighting the pluses of the Trump presidency so far. Enjoy:
Meanwhile, Democrats still are flailing on the floor kicking their arms and legs, screaming like toddlers and advocating violence. It would be laughable were it not perilous. A pundit recently observed that this is the first time since 1861 that Democrats have refused to accept election results.
The Republican National Committee has released its first campaign video for the midterm elections. It focuses on the lunacy of the Democrat Party.
If I had a MAGA cap, and I wish I did, I would not wear it on the street. You may recall that I ordered a Trump coffee mug via eBay after the presidential election. Someone at Mexican Customs smashed it, put it back in the box, and sent it on to me.
I glued it back together as best I could, and now it sits proudly on my desk as a pen-and-pencil holder. Trump’s grinning at me as I write this.
Mexicans’ attitude toward Trump is understandable. Were I a born Mexican instead of merely a made one I probably would dislike him too. It’s human nature. The stuff he said during the campaign was pretty harsh, but he was campaigning like Teddy Roosevelt, and what he said was for American consumption. It worked!
On a couple of occasions, I’ve had Mexicans ask me what I think about Trump. I tell them I voted for him, and then I provide this analogy:
How would Mexicans feel if, instead of the two Gringo-infested havens of San Miguel de Allende and the Lake Chapala area, there were literally hundreds of San Miguels sprinkled across Mexico?
And these hundreds of San Miguels were infested with Gringos who lacked visas because they had entered Mexico via tunnels, climbing over fences and swimming south over the Rio Bravo, dodging the law.
And how would Mexicans feel if these millions, literally millions, of illegal Gringos, most of whom spoke no Spanish and had no interest in doing so, were fond of marching in our streets waving American flags and demanding their “rights”?
I’ll tell you how Mexicans would feel. They would be apoplectic. Of course, this would never happen because Mexico would not allow it in the first place.
Mexicans are not that stupid. We would deport you.
If Mexicans want to get angry at the election of Trump, and they decidedly do, they should know who caused it. They need only look into a mirror. They themselves caused it with their lawless, decades-long border invasion. That plus the collusion of the vote-grubbing Democrat Party and the acquiescence of the numbskull Republicans.
Mexicans and the two corrupt U.S. political parties created Trump.
