Media Desperation

Wow! How desperate is the main street media to nail President Trump with an offense that will force him out of office? MSNBC’s Joy Reid decided to use her air time on Sunday exploring fictitious scenarios where Trump gets taken into custody by Federal Marshalls for refusing to comply with a subpoena to be interviewed by Robert Muller. They had the Federal Marshalls handcuffing Trump and perp walking him out of the White House on their way to jail where he’d be incarcerated until such time as the interview with Muller could take place… a process that one guest said could take as long as 18 months. The wet dreams were endless. If the media wasn’t so determined to make…

Big Break For The Media

The main street media got a huge break overnight when the news broke that police had identified and cornered the Austin Texas bombing suspect who ultimately killed himself by detonating a bomb inside the vehicle he was hold up in. It gave the liberal media outlets a great excuse for not having to spend more than a few minutes reporting on the school shooting that occurred yesterday that ended quickly when an armed resource officer shot and killed the shooter. The shooter only had time to get off a couple of shots before being taken down by what can only be described as a good guy with a gun. One student is in the hospital and another treated and released…

Gun Control…

It’s been three weeks since the shooting at the Parkland, FL school and the Florida legislature has managed to formulate and pass the ‘Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act’, a bill that when enacted into law will do some of the things the gun control advocates have been clamoring for. The biggies are putting in place a three day waiting period to buy any firearm and bump up the age to 21 for any firearm purchase. It also will, much to the objection of the gun control crowd,  create a system for some school staff to be carrying a concealed weapon. So our legislators and Governor Scott will be patting each other on the back and bragging about…

Amazon Paid No Federal Taxes…. Oh My

Drudge linked to an article by Emma Roller on Splinternews.com that reported that Amazon made profits of $5.6 billion in 2017 but is paying no federal income taxes. Amazon is owned by one of the richest men on the planet and the article never mentioned how much he pays in federal income taxes on a personal level. Amazon is a LLC, which for those of you who are ignorant with the tax laws means that the profits from the LLC pass through to the owners of that LLC and who then pay income taxes on that money on a personal level. So when they say that Amazon is paying no federal tax it is technically correct, however there are federal…

Is This The New Normal?

Last week we had another horrific mass murder occur on a school campus. However somehow this one seems different… The school administrators, fellow students and the FBI all dropped the ball identifying the shooter as a danger to society in the months leading up to his rampage, but that’s not what the conversation has been about. The FBI was quick to come up with what I call a lame excuse for their inaction. However in my opinion they have a lot of explaining to do why they failed to follow up on all the reported red flags that they had a potential shooter on the horizon. It also seems like the gun control advocates we’re on the scene even before…

Criminal Election Meddling

The Federal Government has handed down indictments charging 13 Russian individuals and 3 Russian companies with activities that were meant to, “sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 presidential election.” In other words they spread negative information about the candidates, including Hillary and Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. Apparently this activity is a criminal offense, so my question is why are we not throwing every person running for a political office in jail for doing the exact same thing by running negative ads against their opponents?

Injustices

17 students and teachers were killed during a 3 minute shooting spree at a South Florida High School earlier this week and don’t get me wrong it was a horrific senseless crime. Governor Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi immediately headed for the scene. The governor went to make the public think that he’s capable of doing something for the families after the fact. Pam Bondi went to collect information so the state could pay funeral expenses for the dead. President Trump ordered flags nationwide to be flown at half staff and he too is planning a trip to the location to show his support in the aftermath of this hennas action by a seriously flawed teen. So 17 dead…

Another 17 Dead

Another day another school shooting… this time in South Florida at a High School that has left 17 dead. We’re once again reminded that if we see something or feel something isn’t right to say something. Well in this case someone did and nothing was done to stop the carnage. Back in Sept 2017 a YouTube vlogger reported to the FBI that someone had commented on one of his videos that he was going to be a professional school shooter. Turns out the name used on the comment matches that of our latest murderer, so the FBI could have taken this ass off the streets long before he had the chance to carry out his plans to shoot up his…

Stock Market Crashing?

The New York Stock Exchange dropped over 1,000 points yesterday, which brought out all the naysayers who are predicting economic gloom and doom… tied to the Trump administration of course. The markets have all been rising steadily for over a year based on a positive economic outlook under President Trump’s leadership. If anyone has any knowledge of stocks and the markets know that you can’t have a sustained period of increases without having a sell off at some point. This is basically how the rich get richer in this country… they watch their stocks rise in value and when they get that itch they sell and take their profits. The casual investor who got into the market while the prices…

State of the Union

I watched some of the President’s speech last night… mostly a lot of pat me on the back moments, which I believe are well deserved. When they say President Trump is no politician I say amen. He’s shown time and time again that he stands for what is best for the country and brushes off all the negativity the media throws at him on a daily basis. He’s gotten more done to improve the lives of all US citizens in his first year than any other president before him; however you wouldn’t think that if all you were seeing were the faces of the Democrats in attendance. When he called for unity within congress the minority leader Nancy Pelosi frowned.…
