A Game of Chicken

I was astounded to learn a few months back that the British will not buy American chicken.

It has been a hot issue there, while completely ignored by the American press. Imagine that!

In all trade negotiations with Britain, the U.S. is continually rebuffed when it comes to Colonel Sanders’ favorite item.

Why do they cry foul over are America’s fowl? We seem to do fine with our birds here.

The Brits are worried about the chlorine dip American chicken takes when it is processed. Chlorinated chicken frightens them. Brits have become convinced that a drop of chlorine in the water will cause them cancer or God knows what.

The other night I watched a British show, Food Unwrapped (which I guess we ripped off for the Food Network). It concerned Brexit and whether there would be “chaos at the checkout” as Brits scramble to have enough food, should Brexit ever take place.

“Experts” had no consensus on what would happen – Armageddon or just another trading day. But the show did zero in on chicken, once again asking whether they should take American chicken. It would be cheaper and there would be a steady supply.

Since British TV is owned by the government, you can guess what the conclusion was. However, it was interesting to see their arguments.

The show visited a lab where a technician took two pieces of chicken. One he dipped in a chlorinated solution, the other he did not. He introduced salmonella and put each in a petri dish. After some time had passed he showed the one that had not been dipped was awash in salmonella. The chlorinated one was 98% free of it, but there were a few dots.

The conclusion they reached? It was better to use the non chlorinated chicken than the chlorinated one. The scientist said the samples in the chlorinated one had a version that had produced stronger versions of the salmonella. Say what?

Was the viewer to believe him or his/her lying eyes?

They then went to a chicken farm where the owner insisted that he had cleaner chickens than we do. Probably true, but he couldn’t produce enough to feed their nation. No one can using that method. In fact, Britain can only provide about half the food it needs at all.

While we in the States can’t prevent salmonella outbreak in chicken 100%, we haven’t had that many cases of it among 300 million plus people. It’s popped up more in romaine lettuce than chicken because the migrants who work the fields often poop in them and don’t wash their hands before they get back to picking romaine.

Food Unwrapped also contemplated that absence of avocados on British tables, should Brexit happen and be disastrous. Currently, the UK imports avocados from Spain. The crew visited a grower who bemoaned that he could lose 25% of his exports to the UK. Why? What would Brexit do to him?

Also, why couldn’t Britain import avocados from Mexico or the U.S.? The explanation was that it would take a month for the product to get there. Really? That seems ridiculous in today’s world of air freight.

No wonder they can’t get Brexit done. The UK is a country dragged down by pseudo science and political correctness.

They may chicken out on Brexit, which would be a shame for a once great nation.

TN Muslim Behind Pirro’s Oust?

It’s shocking, but a Muslim from Tennessee appears to be the one behind Judge Jeanine’s ouster at Fox News.

Here’s what the judge said in her opening statement on March 9 that caused the uproar: “Omar wears the hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Sounds like a fair question of the Minnesota represenative, Ilhan Omar, who was the one who made anti Semitic remarks, upsetting many in the Democrat party and all Republicans in Congress. I don’t even think there was an organic groundswell of anger against Judge Jeanine; evidently, it was most upsetting to one person, Hufsa Kamal, who is a producer for Bret Baier’s show at Fox News. She describes herself as “Pakistani-American. England born, Tennessee raised. I help make TV happen on @FoxNews.”

She voiced her disgust in this tweet, “@JudgeJeanine can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren’t American enough? You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself. K thx. https://t.co/ZfKhRhlvM3

— Hufsa Kamal (@hufkat) March 10, 2019

In the week after that, Fox decided to pull the Judge’s show, supposedly for two weeks. Fox said, “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

Hufsa has attacked many conservatives on Twitter, in particular Michelle Malkin, Candace Owens, Dan Bongino and Charlie Kirk.

She has recently suspended her Twitter account.

I suppose most of us agree with this comment, posted at theconservativetreehouse:

What Pirro stated was a fact. Why are Muslims & Islam off-limits? A Muslim producer at Fox was offended by Pirro’s comments. A real Muslim-American should have no problem with Pirro Making a factual statement regarding Ilhan Omar’s hijab being a symbol of Sharia Law. It is, and Sharia Law is the antithesis of what the American Constitution represents. It has no place in Congress… especially when Omar continuously makes hateful, anti-Semitic comments. A Real Muslim- American understands that USA is a Free society, & that it’s important to have a free dialogue on the issues of Omar’s anti-Semitism, and Sharia Law. It is Free Speech. Fox is placating to a Producer at Fox who is Sharia compliant. Of course, they are also allowing the Left, who jumped all over this, to bully & silence them.

We’re in a very dangerous place with freedom of speech. Already people are reluctant to express their opinions or even wear a MAGA hat. It shouldn’t be that way, but it is getting worse.

The Puppet Masters Behind AOC

If you watch one thing today, watch this video.

It’s from a guy who goes by the name Mr. Reagan. He delves into the whole Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez story.

If you’ve ever wondered how she suddenly burst on the political stage, here’s your answer. It’s very scary especially because it rings true with how progressives operate.

Read ’em and Weep

Here are the Republicans who voted against the president’s right to declare a national emergency about the border:

Sen. Roger Wicker, Mississippi

Marco Rubio, Florida

Rob Portman, Ohio

Susan Collins, Maine

Lisa Murkowski, Alaska

Roy Blunt, Missouri

Lamar Alexander, Tennessee

Pat Toomey, Pennsylvania

Mitt Romney, Utah

Rand Paul, Kentucky

Jerry Moran, Kansas

Mike Lee, Utah

Let their names live in infamy because they didn’t do anything substantive against Barack Obama. That includes you, Mitt. You could have spared us in 2012 by growing a spine in the debates; you were too concerned about offending people.

Not true in your dealings with Trump. You’re happy to offend him. Romney will do everything he can to make Trump’s presidency difficult. What’s wrong with Utah? Not only have they pushed this loser on us, but Mike Lee gets all holier-than-thou with this vote, too.

Shame on Lamar Alexander. He knows better, as does Roger Wicker. Kansans and Missourians won’t look kindly on Moran and Blunt either. Do they not understand the populace? Or are their own lobbyists too powerful to resist?

Rubio is obviously still smarting from the 2016 debates. If he has any future aspirations, he needs to wise up, too.

The problem is their high fallutin’ stance on presidential rights means nothing when Democrats are in charge. They run right over our rights and none of these bozos ever objects.

Here are the Republican seats up for election next year:

Lamar Alexander (R-Tennessee)

Shelley Moore Capito (R-West Virginia)

Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana)

Susan Collins (R-Maine)

John Cornyn (R-Texas)

Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas)

Steve Daines (R-Montana)

Mike Enzi (R-Wyoming)

Joni Ernst (R-Iowa)

Cory Gardner (R-Colorado)

Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina)

Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Mississippi)
James Inhofe (R-Oklahoma)

Martha McSally (R-Arizona)

Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky)

David Perdue (R-GA)

Jim Risch (R-Idaho)

Pat Roberts (R-Kansas)

Mike Rounds (R-South Dakota)

Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska)

Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska)

Thom Tillis (R-North Carolina)

We will have our work cut out for us.

When idiots like these go against party sentiments, it’s not promising.

OAN Steps Up

Once again, One America News has promoted an event for the border wall. They will broadcast this tomorrow.
Recently they held a very informative townhall with some of the same people concerning immigration. It’s a bold and good move by the conservative network that excels in news coverage in my opinion.

Neil W. McCabe is the kind of old fashioned, thorough, accurate and pro America reporter we used to have. He’s not a pretty face/talking head. He does the grunt work and it shows in the quality of his reporting.

I hope this network gets on more cable systems besides Direct TV and Direct TV Now. It’s more reliably conservative than Fox News. Its two evening programs, The Daily Ledger and Tipping Point, have hosts who let guests talk. They do not restrict them to two minute sound bites. Both hosts, Graham Ledger and Liz Wheeler, show a knowledge of current topics with an injection of Constitutional awareness.

They are a breath of fresh air and much needed in today’s media.

Insider Slams FBI

A sad and shocking comment seen on a blog:

As a retired FBI Agent who is ashamed to admit to ever having been a member of the agency: you out there in the American public cannot possibly comprehend the extent of corruption within the FBI and DOJ. There is literally no such thing as a banana republic police department that is more corrupt than our own FBI/DOJ. Every day that McCabe and company are allowed to walk around on this side of the dirt, our Country dies a little more.

These sad words were made following former acting FBI director Andy McCabe’s appearance on Face the Nation yesterday.

McCabe was asked about the sentencing of Paul Manafort. McCabe would evidently like to see Manafort die in prison. The interview can be seen here: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/03/10/sunday-talks-andrew-mccabe-shocked-over-manafort-prison-sentence/#more-161084

Animal House

Since the Democrats regained the House and took control in January, it has been almost catastrophic.

For us and for them.

They have acted like freshmen frat boys on their first venture away from home. They are out of control and don’t even seem to care.

Remember their January party in Puerto Rico? Lobbyists paid for it and even Senator Menendez, who got in trouble for accepting money from them and carousing with young girls in the Dominican Republic, had no shame about appearing with a babe on a beach. Not a shred of propriety in that guy.

Then there was the ridiculous refusal to work with President Trump on border money. In the end, he got what he wanted. They always knew he had avenues open to him and would use them, but putting the country through their ridiculous chest thumping was more important than an insignificant amount of money – $5 billion.

One America News runs a clock every day complete with the updated daily cost of illegal immigration. Even at the beginning of March we are up to $45 billion and counting. So much for their fiscal concerns.

They put us through the absurd Cohen testimony last week. In the end, he and they suffered. Trump had a bump in the polls of about 1 point. So much for that tomfoolery.

Remember, too, that they are led by two buffons – Nancy Pelosi and AOC. Pelosi often stumbles over her words (does she drink?) and AOC just stumbles over policy. Do they think anyone wants their Green New Deal? No energy, no planes, no beef, no ice cream, revamping every house and approximating an ungodly $93 trillion.

Yet, they soldier on with it.
This week they particularly outdid themselves.
First there was the resolution to condemn anti Semitism. They couldn’t even pass that because it would offend Muslim Rep. Omar so they watered it down to condemn hatred. Keep up with this and you’ll lose all your Jewish voters, Dems.

Then they went after our voting rights. The HR 1 that they passed has no chance of becoming law. McConnell won’t consider it in the Senate and President Trump would veto it.

And who wouldn’t? In it, illegals can vote as can felons, even if their crime was voter fraud! Then more than 50% of them voted to lower the voting age to 16.

Look what one Rep. tweeted:

And a sixteen year old can barely drive a car, obsesses over Instagram and life on the phone, hasn’t lived outside of their parents’ home and many have not even had a job.
Not what our Founders considered worthy of voting.

Fortunately one Tennessean saw the sham:

He reflects Tennessee values, not like our Rep. Cohen.

You know it’s a bad bill when Steve Cohen endorses it. Here’s what he said: “On Friday, I voted for, and the House passed, H.R. 1, the For the People Act to help restore our democracy and reduce the influence of big money in politics which I was proud to cosponsor. The comprehensive measure addresses important priorities by: providing for automatic voter registration, preventing inappropriate voter roll purges; restoring voting rights to those who have served out their felony sentences; reforming the campaign finance system, ensuring disclosures about online political ads; and prohibiting Members of Congress from serving on corporate boards or using taxpayer funds to settle employment discrimination complaints. The bill also requires candidates for president and vice president to release 10 years of tax returns, closes loopholes for lobbyists and foreign agents and institutes a code of ethics for the Supreme Court. It passed by a vote of 234 to 193.”
Call it “For the Democrats Act” because that is what it is.

What he doesn’t tell us is that we the voters would be paying for the candidates’ campaigns. How much would that eat up? Are you willing to pay for AOC’s reelection?

Automatic voter registration actually takes away our rights. You have the right not to vote and you shouldn’t be forced to be registered. Not voting is also a vote and a statement. (One I may make in our upcoming mayoral election which just pits clown against clown.)
You know what purging voter rolls is. It’s like a stake in a vampire’s heart. Dems can’t win without some amount of fraud.

As for releasing tax returns, that’s so obviously an attempt to hurt Trump that it doesn’t need commenting. We all get it. They are intent on finding a crime somewhere in the family’s background.
A code of ethics for the Supreme Court? What does that mean? Ensuring they will always reject right to life votes? A way to dump conservative justices they don’t want? Probably.

The guys in the movie Animal House behaved better than these Democrats.

And vote them out in November 2020.

Trouble for Trudeau

The mainstream media has been remiss (what a shock!) at covering the debacle in Canada for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

He’s been accused of corruption and bribery in his actions for the SNC Lavalin company. Talk about obstruction of justice! Looks like Trudeau will not be PM much longer.

Here’s a synopsis from therebel.media, a Canadian website:

Wonder why the media would not report on real charges against a liberal hero, climate change believer, anti Trumper? That question answers itself, doesn’t it?
