Swinger Bolton?

John Bolton’s new book, “The Room Where It Happened,” is getting some bad reviews.

Not just from conservatives, but even the New York Times and Washington Post.

The Times says, “Underneath it all courses a festering obsession with his enemies … The book is bloated with self-importance, even though what it mostly recounts is Bolton not being able to accomplish very much. It toggles between two discordant registers: exceedingly tedious and slightly unhinged … When it comes to Bolton’s comments on impeachment, the clotted prose, the garbled argument and the sanctimonious defensiveness would seem to indicate some sort of ambivalence on his part — a feeling that he doesn’t seem to have very often.”
Ouch.

The WaPo says, “A veteran bureaucratic infighter, Bolton dishes dirt about everyone he doesn’t like, and it’s a very long list. [After noting his dismissal of Nikki Haley, Michael Flynn, and Jared Kushner] But it’s Jim Mattis who’s Bolton’s favorite punching bag. Every dozen pages there’s another shot at the former secretary of defense. He’s ‘looking for excuses not to do much of anything’ in retaliating against Syrian chemical weapons use; he would ‘predict gloom and doom when he didn’t get his way’ on policy; he used ‘spite’ as a common tactic, prompting Bolton to observe ‘they didn’t call him Chaos for nothing.’

“Bolton is the hero of nearly every anecdote in the book. Indeed, for a memoir that is startlingly candid about many things, Bolton’s utter lack of self-criticism is one of the book’s significant shortcomings. Nearly every policy discussion is an opportunity for Bolton to say that he was right, people should have listened to him, he knew it would never work, he was vindicated. His only problem is that, having burned so many bridges with this book, Fox News may not give him a future platform to explain how right he is.”

And this from his new “friends.”

Ben Domenech at the Federalist writes, “Now for all my plaudits, as a book, I have to say this is quite bad. It is dry, convoluted, and catty in a depressingly repetitive way. One of the repeated elements of the book is Bolton self-references. ‘They said this, then I showed them the error of their ways with this super smart Tweet’ makes a frequent appearance. There is little here to indicate success in anything but tweeting during his 18 month tenure – his views are typically ignored or run into the rocks when they encounter the president, and often earlier. After each of these failures Bolton sinks into a passive aggressive funk for a few sentences. It amounts to a chapter by chapter rendition of Seinfeld’s The Jerk Store, over and over again.”

Then on Twitter, Rich Higgins references something Bolton might not want revealed after Bolton gave a heads up on his ABC interview. “Going to discuss wife swapping, cuck stuff that your 1st wife alleges? Perhaps the pay to play scheme you ran from the West Wing? How you sabotaged Trump’s foreign policy? How you leaked top secret information on behalf of your paymaster in Qatar? Or just mustache wax?”

Higgins is referring to Bolton’s first wife, who fled their home while Bolton was away. According to
Scoop this surfaced in 2005: “Corroborated allegations that Mr. Bolton’s first wife, Christina Bolton, was forced to engage in group sex have not been refuted by the State Department despite inquires posed by Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt concerning the allegations. Mr. Flynt has obtained information from numerous sources that Mr. Bolton participated in paid visits to Plato’s Retreat, the popular swingers club that operated in New York City in the late 1970s and early 1980s.”

Maybe she would like to writer her own “Room Where It Happened.”

Another View…

On the Trump rally from Ace of Spades:

Based on AOC’s bragging about using TikTok teenagers and K-Pop fans to reduce the headcount at Trump’s rally in Tulsa, some new rules are evidently in effect:

1. Any rally with a headcount < 6200 is a miserable failure. 2. Foreign interference in an election is now totes OK. 3. Voter suppression is also totes OK. 4. Abusing the ticketing system to intentionally deny people the ability to hear the politician of their choice is "a form of protest" and is thus totes OK. 5. A candidate being 10 points ahead in some poll 5 months out from the election is absolutely dispositive. 6. Millions of online viewers count for nothing. 7. Stacey Abrams is the rightful governor of Georgia (this is always true). Oh, and here's one more reason I am thankful for President Trump: In 2001, we were thrust into a national emergency because, as they say, "some people did some things." And what did we get out of it? Another big expansion of federal government. It could have been handled by the Department of Transportation, or if the idea is to keep foreign terrorists out of the country, that falls within the purview of the military and the CIA. Domestic terrorists? That's a job for the FBI. But no, we got the the Department of Homeland Security and the TSA, a massive new layer of government bureaucracy that appears to be nothing more than a jobs program for the marginally competent. And it's never going away. And this is in addition to the trillions of dollars spent on wars on foreign soil and thousands of American lives lost, but that's a discussion for another time. My point is, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, any other president would have created a whole new federal department devoted to containing biological and virological threats. Never mind the fact that we already have the DHS and the CDC and other federal agencies that can take care of this, as Trump is demonstrating daily. No, this would be yet another permanent addition to the already swollen and overgrown fedgov org chart. Anyway, like I said, Trump didn't do this but appears to be letting the existing governmental agencies handle the pandemic, and for that we should be grateful.

Thanks AOC. In addition, you’ve given the Trump campaign a heads up on what to expect from the Left.
Then there’s that little issue of voting by mail. The subversion of the ticket sales gives you an idea on what might happen if we vote by mail. (Besides, isn’t that a nod to Luddites everywhere to use such an antiquated system?) Foreign governments, Leftists everywhere and Democrats will flood the mail with fake ballots.

In the end, AOC has shot herself in the foot – again.

Memphis Reporter Praises Trick

What happened at the Trump rally in Tulsa, where AOC and the Progressives got their followers to order tickets and then not show up, preventing Trump supporters from attending the rally and leaving empty stands, was childish, stupid and un American.

Yet one Memphis reporter, Jackson Baker, cheered. Not only that, but was thrilled that his granddaughter participated in the lie and trickery.

On facebook he wrote, “My granddaughter Eva, who lives in Atlanta, was one of the Tik Tok kids who flooded the Trump campaign with false requests for tickets as a means of aggravation. She used the name ‘Dum Young Ho.’ Bless her.”

How pathetic! Bless her? For lying? I’m not sure that’s part of the Christianity I participate in. Nor would I want my granddaughter to use a name like that. Not only does it reflect poorly on women’s self image, isn’t it also a slur on Asians? He should be ashamed.

Some comments on Facebook challenged him. One wrote, “Oh as a respected journalist you condone this stupidity. Unbelievable!”

He replied, “I’m not reporting on Trump’s speech. This is Facebook, and I made a personsal (sic) observation. I’m not on a media assignment, Ray.. Can you not tell the difference?” The typical knee jerk liberal reaction – You’re an idiot.

He didn’t like the reaction: “Look it, those of you who choose to be abusive. I appreciate my granddaughter’s attempts to come of age and express herself. Granted, via a prank. If you continue to be abusive, you’re going to be ungrounded (sic) and/or blocked.”

By abusive, he meant contradicted.

Then he added, “I wouldn’t call a children’s prank ‘dirty tricks,’ Jerry.” Well, she’s not a child, Jackson, if she wants to vote. Neither is it a prank. Many people were stopped from doing what they had wanted to do and if it didn’t have political ramifications, why did he praise her?

Others loved it. One wrote that she had ordered tickets, too. “Tricked ’em” she said.

The best comeback was this one: “Your grand daughter said it, not me. A bunch of dumb young ho’s that are the future ruin of our country with their socialist Marxist agenda.”

Let these misguided people take their chuckles now. They won’t be laughing on November 3rd. Crying, more likely.

Heartbeat Bill Advances

Lifesite news reports:

Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee has promised to sign a bill to ban abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable.

The heartbeat bill passed the state legislature this week and is on its way to the pro-life Republican governor’s desk. On Friday, Lee confirmed his support of the bill.

“One of the most important things we can do to be pro-family is to protect the rights of the most vulnerable in our state, and there is none more vulnerable than the unborn,” he wrote on Twitter.

He thanked state leaders for supporting protections for unborn babies and mothers, including Lt. Gov. Randy McNally, House Speaker Cameron Sexton, Senate Majority Leader Jack Johnson and House Leader William Lamberth.

Lee made the pro-life bill one of his top priorities for the legislative session.

“Every human life is precious, and we have a responsibility to protect it,” he said earlier this year.

The Chattanoogan reports state lawmakers expressed strong hopes that the bill will save babies’ lives throughout the state.

State Sen. Dolores Gresham, R-Somerville, one of the lead sponsors, said Tennesseans support protections for unborn babies.

“Tennessee is a state that values life,” Gresham said. “This comprehensive, life-affirming legislation prohibits abortion once a heartbeat has been detected. I am very pleased it has been passed to protect those who are unable to speak for themselves. I also appreciate the work done by our Senate Judiciary Committee in helping get the bill in the best shape possible to move forward.”

Majority Leader Johnson, R-Franklin, thanked the governor for leading the effort.

“This legislation defends the right of our most vulnerable citizens, the unborn,” Johnson said. “I am proudly pro-life and have been a long-time opponent of abortion. I appreciate Governor Lee championing this historic legislation and believe we have a strong bill that will withstand a constitutional challenge.”

Though the legislation is being described as a heartbeat bill, it includes many different measures to protect unborn babies. Pro-life lawmakers said they wrote the bill to withstand a legal challenge – and the American Civil Liberties Union already has announced plans to sue.

The heartbeat portion of the bill would prohibit abortions once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable, about six weeks of pregnancy. It also includes other levels of restriction going up from eight weeks to 24 weeks of pregnancy, which would go into effect depending on what a court may strike down, the report states.

The bill also would ban discriminatory abortions based on the unborn baby’s sex, race or a Down syndrome diagnosis. It allows exceptions if the mother’s life is at risk.

Abortionists who violate these bans could face felony charges.

The pro-life legislation includes informed consent measures as well. It would require abortion facilities to inform women of the abortion pill reversal procedure and the size and gestational age of their unborn baby. It also would require abortion facilities to allow the mother to hear her unborn baby’s heartbeat and see the baby on an ultrasound.

However, the success of the heartbeat ban against a legal challenge is uncertain.

Some pro-lifers have renewed hope that the conservative-majority U.S. Supreme Court will uphold an abortion ban and overturn Roe v. Wade. Others, however, are hesitant because of concerns about losing the court battle and being forced to reimburse pro-abortion groups for their legal fees.

The Supreme Court took away the states’ ability to protect unborn babies from abortion under Roe v. Wade, and instead allowed abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. Roe made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks.

Snap, Crackle and Racism

Political correctness in the form of racism has come to your cereal bowl.

Sound ridiculous? Not to Fiona Onasanya, former British member of Parliament. She tweeted: “@KelloggsUK, as you are yet to reply to my email – Coco Pops and Rice Krispies have the same compòsition (except for the fact CP’s are brown and chocolate flavoured)… so I was wondering why Rice Krispies have three white boys representing the brand and Coco Pops have a monkey?”

Can you milk racism anymore than to find it on a cereal package?

To her, these guys are offensive. It would be better, I suppose, to have a brown elfin guy on there, although that would make it looked like the product had burnt krispies in it. There aren’t any brown/black faces on cocoa krispies, but wouldn’t that look like blackface? That’s not acceptable either.

She doesn’t bring up that while there are no brown elves on packages, neither are there any female elves. What gives, Kellogg’s?

Nor are there any gay elves, Jewish elves, Asian elves (although they are the biggest consumers of rice), Hispanic elves or transgender elves. Maybe she should look into that.

Interestingly, Ms. Onasanya has her own issues. Breitbart reported, “In December 2018, Ms Onasanya was expelled from the Labour Party after being convicted of perverting the course of justice. The solicitor was found to have lied about a speeding offence. She became the first MP to be recalled by voters under the constituency petition system, with 27.6 per cent of her constituency petitioning for her removal, well over the ten per cent required to be ousted. Onasanya was also struck off as a solicitor over the lie.”

Ironically, the institution that she is attacking, Kellogg’s, is well known for funding left wing progressive causes. They have deep ties to George Soros and contribute to his Open Society Institute.

What with Biden bringing up his old friend Corn Pop, who knew that cereal might be an important issue in the 2020 election?

Is Melania a Faithful Christian?

Dr. Taylor Marshall looks at the Christianity of Melania Trump.

This follows a letter by Catholic Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano warning President Trump that evil forces are working against him. He may have done this at the encouragement of Melania.

It has long been rumored that the First Lady had exorcisms performed in the White House before they moved in.

Dr. Taylor explains this and other issues in this video:

We Are Not Well Served

Our local elected officials do not manage the city well. We have come to accept poor schools, poor roads, high taxes and skyrocketing crime.

We have accepted Democrat rule in the running of the city.

Unfortunately, our media outlets haven’t served us well and don’t even pretend to be unbiased anymore. That goes from the TV stations to the print media to the digital Daily Memphian.

Today it was really on display.

Both the CA and the Daily Memphian no longer carry any stories except the protest/racism and the pandemic. The protest is winding down a bit; humans can’t sustain being angry forever. Fear, in the form of the pandemic, is longer lasting.

Today’s CA has the main front page stories on masks and the need for them, with a story about defunding police at the bottom. That doesn’t mean they were finished with that much eye grabbing.
Page 2 has a story about COVID; page 3 goes back to the protests with a long story that admits there were only 24 people protesting downtown.

Page 4 is more about masks, with another story about Baptists ministers working to promote equality (racism). Page 5 continues the defunding story. Page 6 is about most Americans backing protests of the White House (a dubious claim in my opinion) plus a racism story about “little change occurs on Nathan Bedford Forrest issues.”
The business page is about the economy being bad because of the pandemic and racism; Page 10 pivots again to racism this time allegedly of a Fed Ex worker’s “hateful” video. Frankly, I’m surprised the weather on that page doesn’t give the forecast for protesting all over the country.
The new “Coping” section has a front page story urging people to show up at protests, be actively anti-racist and how to make these issues a model for kids. That story continues on the next page. Page 3B has a story about how the pandemic has brought joy to Hell’s Kitchen in New York. Oh, and a vital story about how to make lemonade.
Sports section goes all in on the pandemic again, plus a racism story about NASCAR and Confederate flags. Comics and TV listings finish it out.

If you’re looking for some actual news about anything, you won’t find it. The world outside the U.S. might as well not exist. Information, in the way of facts, isn’t there either. Like most newspapers, the CA has devolved into a total opinion rag.

Nor do they apparently care about making money. If they did, they’d go for a wider audience than the disgruntled and maybe pick up an ad or two. Used to be the ads were at least informative. Who’s having a sale, new products, store hours, etc. Even they are getting in on the race/pandemic act.

Media is determined to milk all this for as much and for as long as they can. Maybe they are waiting to see who dies out first – America or the media.

Right now the media is the protest and the pandemic. They are the sick ones.
