Brexit struck a blow for free trade

Much of the media especially reporters and commentators who are not old enough to remember when there was no European Union seem to be in abject panic over what they see as the disintegration of Western Civilization as evidenced by Brexit. There was a NATO long before there was a EU and it was much stronger and more forceful than any military alliance existent today. The popular theme from media elites who identify with and carry water for political elites is that driven by bigotry and xenophobia the masses seem willing to risk war and prosperity to sate their previously controlled bigotry. There are comparisons to the Weimar Germany that produced Hitler and the general assumption that those voting to leave the sacrosanct and benign Union would sooner starve than prosper with Muslim refugees.

Actually Margaret Thatcher kept the EU at arms length and demanded that Britain would keep its currency and control its immigration. The immigrants that are taking British jobs are legal immigrants from the ever expanding European Union. It is not the Union Thatcher's generation signed on to. In 2004 Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia entered. In 2007 Bulgaria and Romania joined. Future candidates for membership include Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey. Within the present rules citizens of all of the aforementioned countries will have a right to seek employment in Britain albeit under a regulated regime. As those Brits who work in factories and shops are not the same Brits who write immigration rules with the EU there are differences as to how many jobs should go to foreign born workers and the factory workers have had enough.

As with Obama, Ryan and Cruz who authored an op-ed with the Speaker in support of TPP, free trade is a misnomer. Quite the opposite! Contemporary trade agreements come with hundreds of pages of regulations that are binding on all citizen whether they are engaged in trade or even employed in a trading industry. In the case of the EU the Brussels bureaucrats who make the laws have adapted a green agenda to save the world from global warming. Member countries must adopt a " mitigation ambition mechanism ". A mitigation ambition mechanism? This vulgarity from the country that gave the world Milton and Shakespeare? Doctor Johnson call your office. George Orwell where are you when we need you? What self respecting Englishman could countenance any organization that employed such verbiage?


At the top of the eco friendly hit list is the innocent hair dryer. From the Telegraph;

The European Union is considering pulling the plug on high-wattage hair dryers, lawn mowers and electric kettles in a follow up to its controversial ban on powerful vacuum cleaners.
The power of hairdryers could be reduced by as much as 30 per cent in order to be more eco-friendly, a draft study commissioned by Brussels suggests, threatening many of the models favoured by hairdressers and consumers for speedy blow-dries.

From another Telegraph post;

“What we want is to let the free market reign, not this diktat by bureaucrat,” said David Coburn, a UK Independence party MEP from Scotland who highlighted the proposals set out in the EU’s “Ecodesign” consultation.
Mr Coburn, who recently purchased a new kettle and toaster on moving house, has grumbled that his new appliances no longer seem to have the ‘oomph’ they once did. “I think I must have bought a euro-toaster, I have to put the bread in five times and it’s still pale and pasty. Perhaps it’s powered by windmills,” he told The Telegraph, “And the kettle? Watching a kettle boil has never been so boring.”

There are limits to how much government interference any society will tolerate and that limit has been reached in Merry Old England. Being overbearing just because you can get away with it is a liberal trait that rightfully should be punished. Stripped of the onerous regulation that has encumbered its economy Britain will be stronger, freer and happier.

Oh Brexit, my Brexit

It's probably an indication of the expertise of today's reportage on Brexit that last evening, while the vote was being reported, only one network, Fox Business, carried the vote tallies in real time. Today the same great organizations and their minions who could not tear themselves away from Trump's trip to Scotland and the resultant irreparable damage to the Republican brand, have commanded their viewer to listen up and pay attention to the disaster at hand. In fact the Brexit story was so low voltage that only one celebrity, and a minor one at that, offered an opinion on the purely European matter. Bless her heart, Lindsay Lohan, best known for driving under the influence of cocaine and other sundry misdemeanors, did take to Twitter to buck up the remain vote. "good luck with the pound.. will take you about 15 years to get it back up #REMAIN instead", wrote the renowned economist. For some reason she deleted her tweets and her keen insights will be forever lost. Where was Michael Moore? Sean Penn? How can any nation make such a serious decision without help from Hollywood?
Fast forward to the following morning into a media world gone wild. Many in the financial media stirred the panic. People who should have known better actually compared it to the meltdown of 2008. Yes, the Dow did close down 610 which puts it at about the level it was in early May but some perspective is in order. Lost in the hysteria was the fact that the vote merely began a two year long process toward Britain's eventual withdrawal. Another surd fact; only one person, Prime Minister David Cameron, lost his job in the alleged economic carnage.
My question is, where was all this financial wisdom the night before? Lindsay Lohan can't do it all.

Clever pro Trump teenager wins the argument

  I've said before I'm not an Infowars fan, but I have to say this video--every minute of it--is priceless. These kids are hilarious, well-spoken and extremely nimble in arguing with the sluggish BLM dude, who can't seem to get over the fact that these kids are pro Trump.
  Worth every minute.

Google's objectivity re: Democrats

  There's been a lot of controversy lately about Google's objectivity when it comes to Hillary Clinton...something about code, preferences, algorhthyms...
  Not sure what to think, until I tried this.
  Search term for Google: obama's embarrassing radio appearances
  This produced interesting results, viewable here, most of which are somewhat, shall we say, complimentary of Barack Hussein Obama, with links to how embarrassing Trump is and "embarrassed" Obama is for Republicans.
  Bing's search results were quite different, viewable here.
  Yahoo's search results were also quite different, viewable here, same search terms. 
  Similar at Dogpile.
  Try it yourself.

Trump, the anti-Obama candidate

  So I really have to laugh, the more I think about it.
  The media, the DNC and so many Americans have been so proud of themselves for electing an anti-American, er, I mean, an historic president.
  We've had 8 years of glowing "He's like a GODDDD!" analogies.
  We've had almost 8 years of cries of racism with every perceived offense.
  We've had almost 8 years of delicate little snowflakes ruining colleges.
  And 8 years of political correctness.
  We've had almost 8 years of federal corruption at all levels.
  People are tired of this, fed up with the racist prejudices of the Left against anyone who doesn't think the way they do.
  And now, as a result of 54 different gender choices, we have Donald Trump.
  The most politically incorrect, so-called racist, homophobic, misogynist and unapologetic presidential candidate in history.
  Do we see any connection here?
  Everyone knows Trump is flawed; he's sort of inoculated himself, in a way, by being so bombastic that the only people who are shocked by what he says are the politically correct, which of course they would have been no matter who ran against Hillary.
  They've been running numerous anti-Trump ads every hour here in Ohio; the problem is, every time they show some "shocking" thing Trump has said or done, I laugh.
  There ya go.

Lerner turns Ali memorial into pro Hillary rally

  You know, it's amazing how Democrats can ruin even a memorial for a popular public figure. 
  If you've watched the Ali memorial, you already know what I mean. Shades of Paul Wellstone echo historically.
  Left winger Rabbi Michael Lerner chose to use his time as a cheering session for Hillary, full of invectives toward Israel and kudos for a Palestinian state. Lots of clapping and cheers while the camera focused on a grinning Bill Clinton who murmured to the person beside him. The anti-Trump sentiment was not too far below the surface.
  Then there's Valerie Jarrett, sporting huge spectacles, who referred to Ali (or Obama? hard to tell) as King of the World, who just had to pull a me-me-me and refer to her Beloved to grab cheers because Obama.
  Ali's 4th wife of 30 years Lonnie Ali took the stage wearing a disconcertingly large black hat so huge that only her mouth was visible. 
  The focus of the memorial was many faith centered--diversity--and particularly Islam.
  Parkinson's is a terrible disease. Ali carried himself well, even to the end.
  What is it about memorials that makes people talk more about themselves than the deceased? Curious.

Hillary the golden goddess. Um. No.

  They've had the long knives out for Trump since he got in, but the last week has been, well, both disgusting and remarkable.
  Chris Plante has been snarking on the way the Clinton News Network has been trying to turn Hillary into a golden goddess.
  They literally used a Hollywood type filter to make Hillary's skin look gold. I suppose this is to perceive her **HISTORY***HISTORY***HISTORY*** making entry into the presidential race as extraordinary as Obama's was.
  I mean, fixated with race as the DNC/MSM machine is, they're still slavishly placing glowlights behind Obama the Lightbringer's head and remarking how popular and "funny" he is to much of the American public (they get their stats from the same place they get their economic stats).
  But now the professional camera and microphone bearers are racing to Hillary's side of the stage, slobbering and drooling to ask her hard hitting questions like, "How does it feel to be making history?" and "Aren't you just EXHAUSTED with all the campaigning?"
  Of course, you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear even if the sow is wearing a $12,000 Armani jacket that looks like a carpet moomoo while she complains about income inequality.
  So if you're CNN you whip out the golden filters.
  And there ya go.
  So you start with this, which looks like her head is on backwards anyway but oh well.
Then you do this:
  See? That's MUCH better and more convincing that SHE is the next BIG THING to barrel down the road because **HISTORY**.
  Here's the unaltered by MRC video...altered, of course, by CNN.
  To any reasonable eye, this is pretty horrible but to the CNN video editors who got hold of some Hollywood effects, I guess they think this makes her look good.
  I mean, really, though, she looks like she just shot right out of hell.   Hellary. Huh.

  Well, that wasn't enough and obviously it didn't really work well, so the next day, as Chris Plante noted, CNN tried this filter, which makes her look silver which admittedly is better than the gold filter but can't do much about the head on backwards thing.
  Now when I saw her do this on Fox, I thought she looked crazy or sorta like a character from Austin Powers but I guess the obsequious press didn't see it that way.
  Would we say this is press bias? 
  I think we are way beyond that. This is pretty insane and it's only going to turn the Trumpsters into more loyal and determineed Trumpsters.
  Because this is what the Republican side of the aisle is getting.
  And, yes, our candidate is Trump but let's be honest. Any Republican is a target for the press.
  Because this is really funny.
  Isn't it?

Hillary: the uncharismatic robot

  Admittedly it's not that racially appealing when Donald Trump refers to "my African American" off stage, as if the man is some sort of servant. Or worse.
  Trump free wheels his speeches like he's weaving in and out of a roundabout  but his fans of all skin colors seem to allow him room to flub the language because he's so obviously making political correctness an issue in his campaign, even while claiming "I gotta be who I am."
  People in general are tired of being accused of imaginary infractions dreamed up by Left wing anti-god Puritanists, so they're willing to let Trump have leeway.
  Then we have Hillary, Trump's alter ego in reverse.
  Hillary is truly not who she is. She's a character created decades ago (not unlike Obama, to be truthful) in the smoky rooms of 60s academia.
  Her speeches are so breathtakingly bad that it's hard to believe anyone cheers after anything she says, but so they do, aping her mannerisms and drooling over every word.
  Her arms flail oddly, her finger pointing awkwardly at the crowd. She nods her head as if agreeing with the crowd's cheers--"I'm so great! We all agree! See what brilliant points I'm making!"
  In this particular performance in Oxnard, her head bounces down every 10 seconds to check her notes (this woman really needs a teleprompter and prepared speech); her body keeps pacing while her eyes navigate uncertainly back to her printed page,even while nodding to keep the crowd's attention.
  But what she says and the way she says it...she screams something about the deceased Mohammed Ali being able to follow his dreams. Geez, if there's anything more uninspiring than that, I haven't heard it.
  Her shoulders move squarely like a football player's and her voice has its usual scratchy sickliness. It's almost as if she's a....robot??? 
  Couldn't they have written her program with more, say, humor?

Zakaria: 72 raisins, not virgins

  So CNN does their work of trying to make America look bad; they run a special called "Why They Hate Us" because, you know, their hating us is our fault, just like it's Trump's fault that Soros and Hillary are paying thugs to beat up Trump fans at rallies.
  What is so amusing about this video is that they are so serious, repeating the conclusion that ISIS fighters who die in the line of duty will get as a reward 72 raisins rather than 72 versions.
  Well, gulp. Yeah.
 And here's Chris Plante on the subject. Hilarious.

Left & Right DC elites getting their fannies kicked. And they don't even know it.

  So I've imposed on myself a short sabbatical from blogging. It isn't the first time and I'm sure it won't be the last, given the nature of this election and the lying liars who get their fat faces on tv all the time telling us all how to think.
  To say I'm disappointed in Bill Krystal, Mitt Romney and Jonah Goldberg is an understatement. 
  Right now the most revolting person on the right to me is the former blogger Erick Erickson who made it to the big time of tee-vee with Tea Party momentum: he's emblematic of the fatheads who've been instructing us how to win when their main idea of winning is a fat tv contract for themselves to expound more winning ideas that will help fathead Hillary! win.
   The "leaders" of our country--both right and life AND the parrot class--seem to believe that we rubes don't know what the hell we are doing by voting OUT the current crop of fatheads and grafting new life onto the federal vine.
  There's a great (as in YUGELY stupid) example over at the Politico which attempts to defined why so many Americans are deluded enough to think Trump rather than Hillary is best suited to kick the world's ass.
  We rubes have always been attracted to supercilious condescension or maybe not since I have to resist the urge to vomit when forced to listen to academic and chattering classes. 
  They know much more; therefore, ee stupid. You smart.
  According to Politico, the elite circles have justified the rubes' votes for Trump as a "psychological quirk," ignoramuses suffering from what some grandee named Dunning has termed the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
  This author does not recognize insufferable glibness, but has spotted others' stupidity which he breathlessly defines this way:
In studies in my research lab, people with severe gaps in knowledge and expertise typically fail to recognize how little they know and how badly they perform. To sum it up, the knowledge and intelligence that are required to be good at a task are often the same qualities needed to recognize that one is not good at that task—and if one lacks such knowledge and intelligence, one remains ignorant that one is not good at that task. This includes political judgment.
  Apparently one does not watch Watters' World or Kimmel's Lie Witness News where the ignorance of the average left wing college student is frequently exposed but, oh, well, Dunning has given the cocktail circuit more material.
  Stunningly, Dunning--who appears to be oblivious of our current president's proclivities--describes Trump this way:
Many commentators have pointed to these confident missteps as products of Trump’s alleged narcissism and egotism. My take would be that it's the other way around. Not seeing the mistakes for what they are allows any potential narcissism and egotism to expand unchecked.
  See, I don't think we're all going to have to become accustomed to a narcissist and egotist in the White House. At least with Trump, we won't have to worry that the First Lady is cavorting with the Energizer Bunny in the White House movie room.
Again, the key to the Dunning-Kruger Effect is not that unknowledgeable voters are uninformed; it is that they are often misinformed—their heads filled with false data, facts and theories that can lead to misguided conclusions held with tenacious confidence and extreme partisanship, perhaps some that make them nod in agreement with Trump at his rallies.
Trump himself also exemplifies this exact pattern, showing how the Dunning-Kruger Effect can lead to what seems an indomitable sense of certainty.
  Sooooo, you dummies, once you realize that your "heads are filled with false data, facts and theories" that lead to conclusions unapproved by the presiding fascists, you will instead learn to "nod in agreement" with your betters, be they Left or Right.
  And, sooooo, to the fascists on the right and left, I'd like to take this small opportunity to articulate a response to my intellectual and social superiors in the most inimical yet cerebral voice I can muster.
  I hate to be rude but.
  Eff you.

Republican elites: Trump won. Get over it.

  Anyone who reads this column with regularity (those 2 of you out there) knows that Donald Trump isn't my candidate.
  However, I find the GOP elite's, the political pundits' and the other candidates' disdain for the will of the people appalling. They need to just STHU.
  The people have spoken, and I have a feeling when Bernie goes down a lot more of them are going to speak loudly. 
  This time the people aren't going to tolerate the underhanded way both parties are trying to reorder the will of the people by manipulating the system and ignoring hundreds of millions of people. Watching them flailing like T -Rex dinosaurs at a banquet table is good entertainment but the red meat is watching Hillary lose repeatedly to an old geezer Communist.
  That grating scratchy voice bellowing that "it's time we stop bellowing and start talking to one another" is as laughter-generating for a Trump fan as a five year old's visit to the circus. 
  The woman's a nightmare and her admirers' accolades are falling on deaf ears as the reality of her obnoxiousness reaches new and profound heights.
  I figure Biden and Warren are waiting in the wings for Hillary's indictment. That could be real trouble. 
  Anyway, if you're like me, then you've adjusted your mind to the fact that The Orange One will be entertaining us for some time. He's enjoying the limelight and so are we.
  As we can see by the one third of West Virginia Democrat voters' decisions to support Trump, Trump has a lot more support than CNN or MSNBC has acknowledged. 
  They're shocked. 
  Haha. Shocked, I tell ya.

Trump: she ate like a pig

  I don't know what's wrong with Hillary followers. Now they're running an anti-Trump ad that really, er, is ineffective, shall we say.
  I laughed and laughed when I heard this the first time. Then I ran it again and laughed again.
  Why is it so refreshing to hear a politician actually saying the truth, even though he wasn't a politician at the time he said most of this stuff. 
  It's hilarious. The comments under the video at YouTube indicate I'm not the only one who thinks so.
  Add the doom-de-dee-doom-doom music in the background and you gotta real cartoon.
  Geez. Feminists are such dopes. 
  I mean, how can you beat this: "She came to my wedding, she ate like a pig,” Seriously, the wedding cake was like missing in action."
  Who he's talking about, is all I can think about. 
  Off to do research. 
  And play it again.

Hillary yelling....again

  Well, happy Mother's Day to Hillary Clinton.
  Does anyone find this woman's voice grating?
  Especially when she's yelling that we need to stop yelling at one another?
  Because, for sure, Hillary & her Democrat harpies don't ever yell at the opposition....

  But you gotta love that face, eh?

Hillary IS the world's presidential candidate: just not ours

  I really don't know why Hillary Clinton continues to claim that the "world" is depending on her to beat Donald Trump.
“I don’t know how else to say it: The whole world is counting on us to win this thing. And we owe it to them to step up,” wrote Clinton staffer Christine Reynolds.
  This "world candidate" claim doesn't help her cause.  She keeps claiming that she's getting phone calls and pleas from the world to stop Trump by winning the US presidency.
  See, the Trumpsters think Hillary (and the GOPe) IS the world's candidate, but she's sure not America's. 
  She's corrupt, greedy, dishonest and manipulative, not to mention selfish.
  Americans are tired of giving full welfare benefits and free health care to illegal aliens while dissing our veterans.
  Americans are tired of funding the defense of Europe with only sniping in response or "appreciation."
  Americans are tired of the GOP/DNC elite mocking them, even as they ask for more and more to fund their fancy properties and pension plans.
  Americans are tired of politicians who coast on fumes, promise lies and then just worry about their own parking spots and great "vacations" aka foreign trips.
  Americans are tired of the two political parties assuming we are stupid.
  Americans are tired of footing the bill for Europe et al  and then crabbing when the "wars" don't end in a nice tidy gift box.
  So, yeah, Europe, World.
  Go ahead and claim that crook Hillary Clinton is your candidate. That's one of the reasons we don't want her. She thinks more of YOU than us and certainly more of herself than anyone else.
  You can have her.

My rambling: introducing Tea Party 2.0

  I have many friends who are horrified by Donald Trump. They simply cannot bring themselves to think of the man as POTUS.
  At the WSJ, Peggy Noonan--she of the GOPe-- has written an eloquent elegy for politics in America, primarily the Republican Party.
My Moment came a month ago. I’d recently told a friend my emotions felt too close to the surface—for months history had been going through me and I felt like a vibrating fork. I had not been laughing at the splintering of a great political party but mourning it. Something of me had gone into it. Party elites seemed to have no idea why it was shattering, which meant they wouldn’t be able to repair it, whatever happens with Mr. Trump.
  I might remind the morose Noonan that we in the hinterlands have been observing this mess from afar for quite some time and that's how we've gotten to the Donald Trump candidacy. 
  We're fed up with politicians like Jeff Flake who say the right things to get elected and then, when they get to DC , turn into monsters who only care about maintaining their parking spots in DC and their special favors from the TSA.
  But for myself, I cannot live like this. I cannot dwell in the negative, believing that this great country has fallen to the fatal charms of one Barack Obama and the bullies that run the Left.
  For myself, I believe there are seasons in life, in worship, that reveal that this life is a step away from another more important life. 
  Yes, I believe in Jesus. I believe in God. And I pretty much don't believe in humankind (or is it "manunkind"?) in the long run of the universe. 
  Men will be lovers of self, we read in the Bible, and if that isn't true today I don't know what is.
   And yet so many of us struggle to be good people, good parents, friends and citizens, looking for truth, like beggars who seek real food, not garbage from a public trash can. 
  So when we see Obama admonishing the Brits (whom he has repeatedly insulted) that they need to stay in his personal dream of the EU, I can only shake my head and wish the mess that is the Obama administration will be over with as little additional damage as possible.
  What's so astonishing is that this narcissist is so apparently unaware that he is being ridiculed around the world. So un-self-conscious that he feels comfortable doing whatever he pleases without regard of public perception. Indeed his entire administration has been one of disregard for public opinion, other than his adoring sycophants' prayerful worship
  So this:
...because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 
  Uh, yeah.
  And how can anyone not see this truth:
For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred.
  Really, I can't abide the pompous and often ludicrous assertions of the academics, the political class, the elite. 
  So Springsteen won't perform in NC where parents don't want men in the bathroom with their daughters but he will perform in countries where they actually kill gay people? Subjugate women?
  So presidential candidates are willing to tie global warming to Islamic terrorists? 
  And the current POTUS can be so unconcerned about his carbon footprint as to send his wife on a separate jet to England to have tea with the Queen, an hour earlier?
  So Democrats can legally target those with whom they disagree over a difference of opinion?
  So a presidential candidate can absolutely claim no lives were lost in the struggle in Libya, openly lying not only to the public but to the families of men who died under her direction? 
  So politicians are really going to criminalize...
  Ok, wait.
  I'm not going to do this.
  Politics has been reduced to vulgarities, mud slinging, lies and unAmerican assertions that we should hate ourselves because we are so ______. 
  My trust is not really in America (which I love) but in God.
  Much of the Left is built on lies, lies that declare that we are abhorrent people who need to be more like them and then we would be good. Much of the country club right is the same.
  You know those folks who abhor God, who love themselves and who think they are always right.
  And you are an idiot.
  Personally I'm sick of politics. I'm also sick of politicians who aren't willing to actually confront the reality of the mess the Left--and the country club Right-- has created in this country.
  But my hope is not in these politicians, nor is it in Donald Trump, who has far more to lose personally than any of the people running. (Who can't laugh when you hear lazy but likeable Bernie "socialism is best" Sanders was kicked out of a communist commune for not working?)
  My hope is in something eternal.
  It is not in Donald Trump, nor is it in Ted Cruz.
  My hope is in an awakening that is taking place around the country and hopefully around the world. An awakening that is spiritual, not political.
  No politician--whether old or new--will solve the problems in this world. Sure, I wish we wouldn't have to hear about people's private parts but such is humankind.
  I am not equating the tea party movement with spirituality or Christianity.
  I am saying something big is going on in this country that many people are not willing to acknowledge and about which they are even delusional.
  This is Tea Party 2.0.
  Where it ends in this life, nobody knows.

Cruz's new killer advert (well, not really KILLER)

  Ok, this is funny, no matter who you like for president. Remarkable similarities to Hillary & Huma.

Hillary-ious: she thumbs up a Bernie voter

  This is really hillary-ious; it reminds me of that phony meeting with a Russian official in which Hillary claimed she was presenting the Russian foreign minister with a red "reset" button, as if, like Obama, she had to apologize for the US's policies and presence in the world but from here on out, things will be just dandy!
  Anyway the Russian button didn't say "reset"--it said "overcharged."
  Her voice is so hard, so cracked, so overbearing that it's difficult to spend more than a minute listening to her, which is one reason I didn't listen to the Clinton/Sanders "debate."
  Anyway here Hillary is, LOLing over the remark of a so-called fan, not realizing the woman screamed  "I'm voting for Bernie!" Heh.
  The glories of a multicultural society come back to bite Hillary in her substantial you know what.She's just going to have to learn Spanish, like the rest of us.
  The phony thumbs up, the deep bellowing "knowing" belly laugh, the pretense that she understands Spanish...yeah. Hillary-ious.

Al Sharpton, White House "keeper of the dream"

  As revolting as this individual is, we find Valerie Jarrett exalting the "Reverend" Al Sharpton as a "keeper of the dream."
  Just what is the dream? 
  Is it communism? Is it race riots? Is it tremendous division among all classes and races of American people?
  Don't know who Valerie Jarrett?
  Well, she's the de facto shadow president who makes many of Obama's golfing decisions. 
  Apparently we aren't even pretending in our second term to disavow this type of shyster, perpetrator of the Tawana Brawley hoax, racist agitator, tax cheat, did I mention racist?, antisemitic, homophobic, riot inciter Communist, non-reverend profane cheater adulterer?
  Yes, Mr. Sharpton, you're really incredible, as Jarrett says.

Elitists to voters: we think you're stupid

  I am somewhat mournful as of late. I haven't been able to listen to or even follow my usual talkers, commentators, writers...
  This has set my entire schedule out of order. I can no longer trust the voices I used to trust. 
  I can't even, to be honest, tolerate most of Fox News, which seems to have become a wholly owned subsidiary of the GOPe, just as the rest of the channels are wholly owned subsidiaries of Leftist drivel.
  What they all seem to have in common is a vituperous contempt for "others" with whom they disagree.
  The "others," of course, are we who doggedly pay our own bills, go to church, who attempt to raise our children well in an increasingly nihilistic academic system and simply try to maintain sanity in a culture that is breaking apart at the seams.
  Contempt oozes from the elite both right and left, and yet they do not seem to recognize their own absurdity.
  Take, for example, this WaPo article entitled: "Don't Laugh: I have a serious reason for raising my cats gender-neutral."
  After you finish laughing, you realize the young female (mais naturellement) WaPo editor is confused and quite sincere about never saying she/he again; rather, she, er, they prefer to use the very incorrect identifying pronoun they:
It is confusing. We’ve had gender drilled into us as part of language since we first heard adults talking when we were infants – decades of “he” and “she.”
But at the same time it’s necessary. People are coming to understand that not all of us fit into the “girl” box or the “boy” box. Those who don’t are claiming space to be who they are. We all need to find ways to acknowledge and respect that. My way of respecting it just happens to be raising my cats gender neutral. You can choose your own.
  One only wonders how many cats this young female will have when she's 50. Wild men may be blowing up Paris, etcetera, but she believes this is a necessary societal modification, the little miss insisting that calling a female cat "they" somehow alleviates the pain of being a transgendered person.
  Speaking of pain, I don't suppose those who were blown up in Belgium will ever feel the pain of having to witness #TheChalkening of the Donald Trump campaign.
  What's disheartening at this political juncture is that the folks on the right side of the aisle have fallen into the bullying, declaring these months out that they prefer to vote for a liar, a criminal, a person who puts our nation's security at risk such as Hillary Clinton rather than vote for Donald Trump, who has mysteriously disappeared from the political landscape for a few days, presumably to retool his approach to persuade the Jonah Goldbergs of the world that he is worthy of their vote.
   Here's a good take on those "educated" among us who believe they know better than all of us stupids. Though the writer references liberal elitists, this could just as well be observations of a right wing elitist:
On more than one occasion my essays for The Imaginative Conservative have been inspired by bumper stickers. Many moons ago, for instance, I wrote “The Wisdom and Wickedness of Women” in response to seeing a bumper sticker declaring that “Well Behaved Women Do Not Make History.” Recently, sitting in traffic, I saw this very same bumper sticker on the car in front of me, beside another which declared the following: “What you call the Liberal Elite, we call being well-educated.” The juxtaposition of these two stickers, carefully selected by the car’s owner to teach me a lesson, set me thinking. I might even say that it taught me a valuable lesson, though not the lesson that my neighbor in the car in front of me meant to teach me.
  See, the purpose of a bumper sticker is to get into the vision of the following cars. 
  If you make the mistake of actually discussing the content of said bumper sticker, you can guarantee not only an argument, but a defiantly offended visage suggesting "How dare you question my bumper sticker? These are my personal beliefs and you have no right to even discuss the topic!" (True story.)
  Yes, even the right wing has decided they know better than all of us stupids out here: take, for example,  the dustup created by The Conservative Treehouse who suggested right wing talking heads are having their pockets lined for opposing Trump. If you read the article, you'll be convinced that no one has clean hands these days.
  If anyone suggests Trump might more effectively defend this country than the connivers we have lined up for their turn at POTUS, they are quickly shelved,  labeled _______ (racist, etcetera) but most of all ignorant
  Because, you know, they all know best and you're stupid.
  Never forget that.
  You're stupid.
  I once received a group email forwarded from a young friend who cited overall state SAT averages as proof that "blue" (ie liberal) states are so much smarter than "red" (conservative) states; of course, the email originated with a liberal, was forwarded by a liberal, is based on tests written by liberals not to mention incorrectly assessed and applied by liberals to data based on liberals' assumptions.
  Yet somehow this young lady has the brilliant notion that this email proves how much smarter her crowd is than anyone who disagrees. 
  Haven't they noticed they are shouting in an echo chamber loaded with the stench of a stinking pile of detritus?
  Not to mention a peer reviewed stinking pile of detritus.
  And they say we're the stupid ones.
