Open Thread

So, what's on your mind?

A flashback that caught my eye yesterday: The Deep State hatched its plot against Trump very early, and they told us so.

"IMPEACH! IMPEACH!" (With Addendum)

But why?

Here's the reason...

The Disturbing Reason Why the Dems Really Want to Impeach Trump: Why they want to impeach even if it means losing in 2020 by Daniel Greenfield (aka Sultan Knish). One paragraph therefrom:
Lefties have made it very clear that they would rather, practically or symbolically, reverse the results of the 2016 election than focus on winning in 2020 because of the larger principle at stake. The second part of the principle appears in every media piece pushing impeachment. It hinges on President Trump’s alleged unfitness for office. The first part of the principle is the unfitness of the voters to choose leaders.


From Adam Schiff should be forced to take oath before every hearing:
For three years now, Democrats have threatened to impeach President Trump for not taking seriously enough the efforts by foreign governments to meddle in our 2016 elections.

Then evidence surfaces revealing Mr. Trump’s earnest effort to confront a foreign government and pressure them to investigate and turn over information about their meddling in the 2016 elections.

Now Democrats want to impeach Mr. Trump for that.

In other words, Democrats today want to impeach Mr. Trump for doing what they say they have wanted him to do for three years.


The whole thing quickly devolved into another comical farce when Rep. Adam B. Schiff, California Democrat and “intelligence” chairman, kicked off the hearing by setting aside the just-released transcript of the telephone call between Mr. Trump and the president of Ukraine. He chose instead to read an entirely made up, fraudulent and fabricated transcript of a call that never occurred....

President Trump's Speech To The United Nations (September 24, 2019)



"The future doesn't belong to globalists. The future belongs to patriots. The future belongs to strong independent nations."

See When the Ideologues Come for the Kids by Andrew Sullivan in New York Magazine.

Andrew Sullivan!

Like any religion, wokeness understands the need to convert children. The old Jesuit motto (sometimes attributed to Voltaire) was, after all, “Give me the child for the first seven years and I will give you the man.” And so I was moved but not particularly surprised by George Packer’s tale of a progressive school banishing separate restrooms for boys and girls because this reinforces the gender binary. The school did not inform parents of this, of course:

Parents only heard about it when children started arriving home desperate to get to the bathroom after holding it in all day. Girls told their parents mortifying stories of having a boy kick open their stall door. Boys described being afraid to use the urinals. Our son reported that his classmates, without any collective decision, had simply gone back to the old system, regardless of the new signage: Boys were using the former boys’ rooms, girls the former girls’ rooms....
Note the conclusion of the essay:
Adults are increasingly forced to obey the new norms of “social justice” or be fired, demoted, ostracized, or canceled. Many resist; many stay quiet; a few succumb and convert. Children have no such options.

Indoctrinate yourselves as much as you want to, guys. It’s a free country. But hey, teacher — leave those kids alone.
Read the rest HERE. There is much more in the essay! And not limited to the LBGTQ Movement.

Intel Agencies Continue Spying on President Trump

Silverfiddle Rant!
You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you."  -- Senator Charles Schumer

CNN Headline:

Trump at center of new intelligence storm as whistleblower mystery explodes

A weasel in the bowels of our nation's overfed and undereffective Intel agencies has called a whistleblower hotline claiming President Trump "made a promise to a foreign leader."  We don't know what the promise was, or to whom, but I wonder...

Did he whisper to Vlad that he would have more flexibility after his reelection?

Did he hand Iran's criminal dictators hundreds of millions of dollars?

Who knows.  Here's what we do know: 

US intelligence agencies are spying on the President.

Go here and watch the video snippet. CNN counterterrorism analyst Phil Mudd is a Trump-hater, and he rightly calls this what it is.

“The president can say what he wants. It’s not the responsibility of the intel guys to go police the president and go snitch on him to the Congress. Ridiculous!”

Depending on the circumstances, it could also be illegal.

This is another ginned up Democrat political stunt carried out by a toadie stooge at one of the agencies.  Ordinarily, the whistleblower would be listened to, the matter investigated, and that's it.  I suspect the Trump Administration is giving this full attention to avoid charges they used their power to squelch it.  As a bonus, Schiff and the Pelosicrats in Congress will run with this, and it will be one more nothingburger blowing up in their faces.

Wait for it...

See A Political Party Stupid Enough to Call You a Racist Is Too Stupid to Govern by Rick Moran at PJ Media.

What happens when a political party is hijacked by fanatics, ideologues, and hysterics who don't care whether they win or lose an election?

They lose elections.

That's where the Democrats are headed because they'd rather be "right" than clever. And when it comes to the issue of race, Democrats think they have a corner on "right."

They've got a small problem, though. In order to appeal to the fanatics, ideologues, and hysterics to tap them for money and support, they have to at least give lip service to their warped views on race. And that includes calling you and me and about 70 percent of the American voters "racist....

Musical Interlude

(For politics, please scroll down)

"Solveig's Song," from Peer Gynt, by Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg (1843-1907):

[Read about Peer Gynt, which chronicles the journey of its titular character from the Norwegian mountains to the North African desert. According to Klaus Van Den Berg, "its origins are romantic, but the play also anticipates the fragmentations of emerging modernism" and the "cinematic script blends poetry with social satire and realistic scenes with surreal ones."  Peer Gynt has also been described as the story of a life based on procrastination and avoidance....]

Never Forget

Eighteen years ago today....

It will never be distant history for me.

For me, it is as yesterday.  And my anger still burns.

All those hours waiting to hear if two of my homeschool fathers were still alive. Phone services of all types were in a knot, and the wait seemed endless. Both of these men were unharmed, but one had a very close call: he was supposed to be in one of the Pentagon rooms directly hit that horrible morning. Thank God that he was called away to Capitol Hill a mere fifteen minutes before American Airlines Flight 77 struck the Pentagon.

And who can forget watching live the collapse of the Twin Towers after being struck by American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175?

And there were those long minutes awaiting the location of United Airlines Flight 93. Thank God for the patriots aboard that flight.

Yes, eighteen years is a long time ago.

But not for me.

And I will never buy into the whitewash of Islam.

Open Thread

My blog break has ended: Warren has returned home.

It was wonderful — rejuvenating — to take a hiatus from politics and enjoy Warren's company!

I'm not quite ready to publish a blog post, so I'm opting for an open thread for a few days.

Here are two links to get the conversation started:

1. Julián Castro Lauds How Muslims Have Helped Make America Great by Robert Spencer.

2.  Leftist Gestapo: 'No Laughing at Chappelle Jokes!': Progressives fly into a totalitarian rage after a comedian dares to mock their sacred cows by Daniel Greenfield.
