Conservatives Striking Back

This week saw craziness go off the charts.
Yesterday, for example, the St. Louis Post Dispatch decided to tweet that President Trump refused to shake German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hand. Only there’s this:

Looks like a normal handshake to me.

Of course we had the Rachel Maddow “blockbuster” that turned out to be blockheaded in Trump’s tax returns. More fake news. Then Snoop Dogg made a music video in which he shoots a clown Trump in the head. Nice!

Fortunately some on our side are beginning to rebel at the liberal assaults.

When Greg Gutfeld saw rapper Bow Wow’s tweet to Trump: “shut your punk a** up talking sh-t about my uncle @SnoopDogg” before we pimp your wife and make her work for us”, he wasn’t happy.

He replied:

Tim Allen shares his experience:

Then – if you can stand it – Tomi Lahren appeared on the View and gave as good as she got:

$$ Exit From Arts Good for Them

After the Trump budget pulled money from the National Endowment for the Arts, PBS and NPR, celebrities are incensed. Well, they always are since the election, but it went up a notch with this announcement.

Everyone from Julie Andrews to Jamie Lee Curtis howled. Most of them believe that government money helps the arts. But does it?

They should be applauding the move. Who wants the government involved in movies, TV, dance, theater, painting? As the old saw goes, nothing is free. All funding comes with strings attached.

Why would they want this? It might be cool in an Obama administration, but would they like to dance to the conservatives’ tune? No. Just look at the Soviet Union’s art “appreciation.” It led to the most dehumanizing, propagandistic monuments and literature imaginable. It’s only when artists are free that they can perform and innovate.

The last decade or so has really been a poor one for the arts. Our TV shows – those that aren’t takeoffs of British ones – don’t attract viewers as they once did. Movie attendance is off because there is nothing left for them to discuss except the same old social justice warrrior themes or stale knock offs or more cartoon superheroes. When has there been

Free from government funding is a good thing. It will make them more creative and open up audiences for their works.

Praise From Trump

You may have seen Trump’s address in Nashville last night, but an earlier speech praising Andrew Jackson got little media play.

However, it’s worth listening to:

We won’t be seeing as much of Jackson in the future. His image will be removed from the $20 bill and will be replaced by Harriet Tubman. This was an order from Obama’s Secretary of the Treasury, Jack Lew.

Coincidence? I Doubt It

When I read a few days ago that Obama had been in Hawaii and that a Hawaiian judge would likely squash Trump’s travel ban, well, it didn’t take a scholar to put two and two together.

Now Jim Hoft at the gatewaypundit offers more.

Barack Obama paid a surprise visit to Honolulu, Hawaii on Monday just days before US District Court Judge Derrick Watson, who presides in Honolulu, ruled against President Trump’s temporary refugee ban from terror states.

Via Pat Dollard and the Star Advertiser:

Coming off a string of high-profile meetings, former President Barack Obama made an unannounced return to Hawaii Monday.

Just three months removed from his last official holiday visit as president, Obama was spotted dining at Buzz’s Lanikai Monday night.

Local Democrats tried “their best to keep it under wraps the whole day.”

Then on Wednesday President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban was put on hold by US District Court Judge Derrick Watson in Honolulu, Hawaii after hearing arguments that the executive order discriminates on the basis of nationality.

Judge Watson believes Somalis and Yemenis have the same constitutional rights as American citizens.

Knowing how Obama likes to be the shadow president and that California hired former AG Eric Holder to stump the Trump immigration plans, this all comes together, doesn’t it?

What’s Up With MLGW?

Since we rejected the smart meter, our utility bill has not been posted monthly as it normally is.

But we have received an odd letter from MLGW, twice, about our billing. It reads:

“This letter is to inform you that your current billing will be delayed for further investigation to ensure accurate billing. Our Customer Information system created a utility exception to verify meter readings and/or inspect equipment operation. MLGW may have to send a field technician to your residence to obtain verified readings and/or inspect your utility equipment. Once the investigation is complete, MLGW will generate and mail your utility bill. (Then it says in bold italics:) The delay will not affect your time allowed to pay your utility bill.

“The delayed billing may result in a larger amount due based on a larger number of days of service. In order to avoid a large payment we encourage you to make a payment now, based on your previous bill, in order to reduce the amount due when you do get the bill. If this situation causes a hardship, Residential customers also have the option of requesting payment arrangements.”

The letter continues with telephone numbers and quick access code info. There was no signature on the letter.

Looks like customers who didn’t sign up for the smart meter are being treated in a way as to confuse and discourage them from keeping their analog meters. Why anyone should have to come out and inspect utility equipment that has been functioning well for years? Curious, eh?

Then there is the hilarious idea that we should just send some amount of money to them in advance of our bill. Who does that and why? Should we send $10, $100, $500 or 50 cents? If their billing system is so messed up as to not give us a bill, what would keep it from being messed up when you send some unsolicited amount of money to them? Do any of us trust their abilities?

Why would no one sign it, too? Is it because no one wants the responsibility or that no one can be contacted about this?

The days when David Hansen ran MLGW so well that it was considered the best utility in the country are long gone, aren’t they?

Here’s Where to Look

Harvard University has published a list of websites they consider “fake news.”

Guess what? No lefty site is on there. No Huffington Post, Salon or MSNBC. But look who did make the list:

Americanthinker.com
BarenakedIslam.com
Breitbart.com
Canadafreepress.com
Citizensunited.org
Commentarymagazine.com
Conservativereview.com
Dailysignal.com
FreeBeacon.com
Freedomworks.com
Gatewaypundit.com
Lifezette.com
Pjmedia.com
Powerline blog
Rightwingnews.com
Truepundit.com
Weaselzippers.com
Westernjournalism.com
Wnd.com
Zerohedge.com

In other words, many reliable conservative sites they deem biased, unreliable, clickbait and conspiracy.

Funny, that describes the New York Times to a tee.

Show of Support

Want to show President Trump you support him?

This came from the Republican Women of Purpose club:

On March 15th, Republican women across the country will mail Donald Trump a postcard that expresses our support of him. And we, in vast numbers, joining with supporters from all corners of the world, will overwhelm the man with our support and belief in him. We will show the media and the politicians we are standing with him.
And most importantly, we will bury the White House post office with complete support of our President – We are honored that he was willing to take on this job!

If each one of us – every supporter – writes even a single postcard and we put them all in the mail on the same day, March 15th…Well, you do the math!
Write one postcard. Write a dozen! Take a picture and post it on social media!
The address is

President Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue N
Washington, DC 20500

It’s easy to do and can make a difference!

Left’s Craziness Continues

Call it moonbattery, that is Left wing lunacy, if you like, but the Left’s continual descent into madness is a technicolor spectacle which we have not witnessed so completely before now.

Just when you think you’ve heard the most crazy stuff pass for news, something even more insane comes along.
This week there was Barbra Streisand. “Donald Trump is making me gain weight,” she wrote on Twitter. “I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup!”

Wow! Trump has even more power than we thought. Does he make you eat extra pie, too, Babs?

Then there was Dan Savage. He claims to be an anti bullying gay activist. But that didn’t stop him from bullying Melania Trump, according to TheWrap.

“God knows there’s enough hate in the world, and I don’t want to add to the sum total, but forgive me, I have got to get this off my chest: I f***ing hate Melania Trump,” he said on his latest “Savage Love” podcast, TheWrap noted.

“I’m not alone in loathing Donald Trump’s third wife — she’s married to a misogynist after all. Odds are good her husband hates her, too,” Savage said, according to the entertainment outlet. “But there are some folks on the left who not only don’t hate her, they view her as some sort of sympathetic figure. The pretty princess in the tower locked up by the orange ogre with the bad combover, a princess desperately blinking out distress signals during swearing-in ceremonies and inaugural balls.”

Savage also said Melania Trump is admired because many “think that the insides of pretty people match the outsides of pretty people,” TheWrap reported.

“It’s definitely not true in this case,” he continued, the outlet said. “Mrs. Trump, Melania Trump, is as ugly on the inside as she is pretty on the outside. She is a birther. Pretty Melania went on TV to push the same racist conspiracy theories about Barack Obama that her husband did. She’s an immigrant who doesn’t give a s**t about the plight of other immigrants. She’s famously a plagiarist. And she’s brought ruinous lawsuits against journalists and bloggers accusing them of, among other things, potentially interfering with her ability to profit off her role as first lady.”

The Blaze adds this: “While Savage also is known for It Gets Better — a project aimed at helping bullied gay teenagers — the anti-bullying icon sure knows how to dish it out. Savage called a gay conservative group ‘house f*****s,’ marked the death of conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia by dedicating the rest of his ‘weekend’s marital sodomy’ to his memory, and called high schoolers ‘pansy-assed’ as they walked out of his journalism conference address after he bashed the Bible.”

Well bully for him because that’s just what he is. But, if you’re a liberal, no one is going to bully you.

Then There’s This…

Our local libs are deep into lunacy, too.

I caught this on Nextdoor. A Midtowner writes:

“By any chance, is there any buses going to Nashville on Thursday to join the crowd, that will be showing up for Trumps visit ? Just curious ! Wanting to voice discontent for his decisions.”

Don’t these people have a life? Are they so empty that they have to fill their lives with the distraction of condemning others?

Someone else replied – and I don’t know if it’s meant to be sarcastic or helpful – “I believe Greyhound is still running.”

I think the point of the original tweeter was to get something for free.

But here’s the kicker. Another replied, “If you go on Thursday you are going to be a day late…”

Yes, the tweeter didn’t even have the protest day right. Checking up might be helpful.

To which the person answered, “thought it was Thursday….thanks. This post was removed. So much for Freedom of Speech….imo”

Freedom of speech sure covers a lot these days. Looks like community organizing with a big dose of politics. At least the person in charge recognized politics for what it is and pulled it off.
