Time for a Cup of Sanity

More developments broke yesterday on the boycott of Keurig products instigated by Hannity supporters after the company pulled their ads. Keurig had been informed by Media Matters for America president Angelo Carusone that Hannity supported Judge Roy Moore and pedophile/sexual harrassment.

Here’s a photo of Carusone. Was this selfie taken in his parents’ basement?

Hannity said yesterday and last night that Keurig had walked back their threat. Have they continued sponsorship? That is not sure yet.

Disturbingly, In an article Monday afternoon, “The Wrap” put the number of sponsor defections at eleven. Keurig was still on the list.

Disturbing, too, is how quickly all this escalates. In the current climate, allege sexual harassment and the herd starts running. The Left is masterful at creating chaos and panic. They desire to hurt the opposition and morality has nothing to do with their practices in achieving it.

More Than Moore

The false outrage about something Judge Roy Moore might have done 40 years ago is, in itself outrageous.

The Democrats and GOPe act as if they have the high moral ground. They don’t. I don’t know if Moore did something, but I do know there have been plenty of outrageous capers going around in D.C. Take former Vice President Joe Biden. He can’t keep his hands off women, as evident in this clip.

The behavior of Ted Kennedy, which even involved the death of a young woman, didn’t get him kicked out of politics. Today he’s regarded as the “lion of the Senate.” No outrage there. Doesn’t seem like he acted too nobly towards his wife, Joan. After marrying him she succumbed to alcoholism and ended up living on the street.

Then there is currently Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ). He’s on trial for bribery in addition to his dubious behavior reported around young girls on flights to the Caribbean. In fact, his whole trial has gone dark. The jurors couldn’t reach a conclusion and one decided it was more important that she keep her vacation plans than participate in our justice system.

Such as her participation was. She confessed she didn’t know what a senator was and asked for a definition. She blabbed about jurors’ verdicts.

Yet Moore may have to pay a price? What’s the definition of insanity?

MeAgain at It Again

A few weeks ago one of those peace loving, tolerant liberals rode her bike past President Trump’s motorcade. What does such a compassionate, earth loving progressive do? She gave the president the finger.

The photo got plastered all over the left loving internet including facebook and twitter. Suddenly she was a hero to be applauded. That was in their eyes. The woman’s boss fired her for violating the company’s social media policy.

Enter the ever attention getting Megyn Kelly. What a perfect person to put on her floundering show! She could get publicity and earn some love from the Left by showcasing someone who dissed the president. This despite telling her audience on the show’s September premier that she was “done with politics.”

Kelly introduced Julie Briskman, saying, “Her picture splashed across Twitter, Facebook, national and international newspapers and websites. Why? Because Julie Briskman decided, on a whim, to give the bird to President Trump’s passing motorcade.”

Here’s the clip:

Kelly’s comments are inane. I thought she was all about cordiality and getting along. Evidently only about getting along with NBC and getting some ratings. Shame on her. Can you imagine the outcry had a conservative done it to Obama?

Monument Spotlights Veterans Day

The Anthem Veterans Memorial in Anthem, Arizona has been designed to honor our servicemen and their families.

They were designed by Renee Palmer-Jones of Anthem. Twistedsifter.com reports “The five marble pillars represent the five branches of the United States military. They are staggered in size (from 17 ft to 6 ft) and ordered in accordance with the Department of Defense prescribed precedence, ranging from the United States Army, the United States Marine Corps, the United States Navy, the United States Air Force and the United States Coast Guard.”

At precisely 11:11 a.m. each Veterans Day (Nov. 11), the sun’s rays pass through the ellipses of the five Armed Services pillars to form a perfect solar spotlight over a mosaic of The Great Seal of the United States.

A nice and well thought out honor for our veterans.

You Know This Guy

Most Americans, including me, don’t much follow Saudi princes or politics.

So it wasn’t on most peoples’ radar when the Saudi crown prince Mohammad Bin Salman instigated a round up of Saudi princes and businessmen. However, it’s a big deal.

Why was this happening? Evidently the crown prince has come out against the support of radical Islam and money lobbying around the world and wants to stop it. It has President Trump’s approval – according to his tweet and photo of Bin Salman.

Trump’s first trip as president was to Saudi Arabia, evidently to form alliances with the good guys and urge them to purge the troublemakers.

Looks like the Crown Prince is following his suggestions. Among the biggie picked up is Al-Waleed bin Talal.
Think you’ve never heard of him? Well, you have.

Remember the Saudi sheik who gave Rudy Giuliani a check for $10 million after 9/11? It was Al-Waleed. He irked the mayor, who returned his check, because Al-Waleed used the occasion to say, “At times like this, we must address some of the issues that led to such a criminal attack. I believe the government of the United States of America should re-examine its policies in the Middle East and adopt a more balanced stance toward the Palestinian cause.”

Didn’t sit well with Giuliani or the American people.

But that’s not all.

He’s Citigroup’s largest individual shareholder. He is the second largest voting shareholder in 21st Century Fox. He also owns part of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. which includes the Wall St. Journal and Fox News. He is said to have donated to the Bush family libraries and is giving Obama money for his library, too.

He owns the top five floors of Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay hotel, where the shooting occurred last month. He was said to have helped pay Obama’s tuition when he went to Harvard.

That’s a lot of influence on our lives. Cutting off money like this changes how things are done in Washington. For the better.
