TGIS- 1/11/19

Butt out, PETA.

AOC appeals about as much to me as a well-used feminine sanitary product. Nevertheless, PETA’s   chiding of her for buying a purebred French bulldog puppy crosses a line.

People should own the dog they will love. Yes, it would have been nice if she could have found a Frenchie that had been abandoned, but just getting any old dog because it was in a shelter isn’t right either.

It’s also possible that she wants to breed the dog later on, in which case it’s bloodline matters.

Personally, I love anything with four feet and fur, usually a lot more than I do their two-legged human cousins. Still, as long as she loves and cares for the dog, it’s good.

So, this one time, and probably for the only time, I’m on her side.

 

A royal MEH.

So  someone 6th or 7th in line to the British throne doesn’t want to be in line for the throne. So what?

It would have been courteous for them to inform Harry’s mother first.  That they didn’t is both rude and cruel.

Other than that, get over it.

Congress needs to read the Constitution.

So, the weenies in Congress have their noses out of joint because the President killed a terrorist without getting their approval.

Uh, he IS supposed to protect the American people.

Other Presidents have had chances to end this guy, and haven’t done it. Who knows how many people’s deaths he has been responsible for because of that?

There are probably a lot more like Suleimani  out there, but that doesn’t mean that taking him out was wrong.

And, given the way Trump has been treated, who knows how long he would have had to argue with Schiff and the rest before offing the guy this time.

Killing a terrorist should be a good thing, not cause for haranguing the President.

Are Democrats Americans?

The CNN headline reads “Top administration officials to brief Congress on Iran as Democrats move to rein in Trump.”

But who is going to rein in the “top” Democrats?

Even Jeh Johnson, a former Obama official, knows the President had every constitutional right to make this call.

And as for why he didn’t tell Pelosi, Schiff or the rest of the Democratic leadership…that would have been like taking out a full page ad in the NYT.

You can decide for yourself whether killing a man who enjoys killing Americans and anyone else, and was good at it, was a good idea.

Perhaps the Dems would prefer serving up a sacrificial American every few weeks instead, especially if  they could be sure it was a Trump supporter.

Iran was clearly warned. Don’t kill Americans if you don’t want to die yourselves.

Is it going to get messy now? More than likely it will.   Iran has been used to empty threats and massive bribes for so long, it may take them awhile to get the point.

But listening to the Democrats go on about the deed, when they nearly sanctified Obama for killing bin Laden is just downright sickening.

These people are not patriots.  In fact, it’s doubtful they are even Americans

Are you kidding?

So the Democrats in the Gang of Eight have their tidy whities in a bunch because the President didn’t consult them before offing Qadeem Suleimani?

Let’s see, he should consult the Pink Horsemen of Impeachment before stopping another massacre in Iraq?    Right.

After 9/11 a number of people registered their opinion that the malign nations of the Middle East should be reduced to big glassy parking lots.  They are still right.

Americans for knife control?

Today we have two more murderous stabbings, one in Austin, Texas and one in Paris, France, not to mention the Hannukah stabbings.

Where are the people calling out for knife and machete confiscation?

It’s time to acknowledge that evil people, not their tools, kill.

California, the commune state?

California is slipping ever closer to demanding communal living, if stories like this are to be believed.

BTW, the root word of communism is commune.

California presumably still has lots of unused land in the San Joaquin and  Imperial valleys.

How about moving the “homeless” there? At least there you could cover up their scat with dirt.

Law or tyranny?

We understand why the President has commanded that anyone under 21 be prohibited from buying tobacco products. We also understand why no 20 year old Marine in Kandahar is going to pay a damn bit of attention to him.

The problems with illicit THC vaping products are real and dangerous, even though the problems are being caused by the users themselves, and not the products, at least not as they were originally manufactured. If these users want to use pot, then move to a state where it is legal.

This is a case of throwing the baby out with the bath water. OK, you don’t think anyone should smoke.  That’s your right, but it is equally the right of those who choose to, to do so. Many don’t think anyone should drink either, but that too is an individual choice.

We personally don’t happen to think anyone should own reptiles as pets, since they are often not cared for properly (and they really aren’t very cuddly and we’ve never heard one purr), but that doesn’t give us the right to tell you whether you should own a boa constrictor or to take yours away from you. .

As someone once said, everything in moderation, and that goes for laws too.

Did Mayor Pete just make a Clinton-sized gaffe?

We hear that Iowa is a pretty conservative state, which makes us wonder just how popular Mayor Pete’s “all drug possession should be decriminalized” stance will go over there.

Actually, as is often the case, there’s a bit more to his statement than that, as the hyperlinked article explains, but you know that those six words will be all anyone sees.

Can you say “deplorables?”

Democrats good at pedal target practice.

On top of Mayor Pete’s possible faux pas, we now have Lizzie’s own relatives showing displeasure with her description of her father as a janitor, (they prefer “maintenance man”)

What is it with Ms. Warren? She seems to have a rare talent for making her family over in whatever way she thinks will make her look better to voters.

Sorry, old girl. Even you can’t do the impossible.

 

Back to business.

We hope all of you had a lovely Christmas. There should be at least one day a year that’s politics-free.

Still, life goes on, which leaves us noting that Plastique Pelosi is still diddling around with Impeachment.

As in, “hey that was so much fun, we should do it again.”

That seems to be the idea behind wanting Don McGahn and his cohorts to testify.  Madame Pelosi seems to have missed the part where they may have to appear, but they don’t have to cough up any classified or executive information.

She also seems be confused as to whether she is Speaker of the House, or Speaker of the Senate. Or maybe, she’s just confused.

OK, enough with the snark, even if it is great fun.

On a serious note, Pelosi is still not giving a target date to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate. Whether that’s because she wants to amend them, or she just wants to be contrarian is hard to tell.

Depending on which “expert” you ask, that either means there are no articles of impeachment, or that the Senate is hamstrung in any efforts to dismiss them.

Whichever way it is, the general consensus “out there” is that she may well have overreached in impeaching the President just for being a big meanie to her and her accomplices.

If she has done nothing else, she seems to have convinced Trump’s supporters that she finds them despicable, to which most would say “right back at ya.”

That’s a bad way to convince voters to stay at home next November, particularly in view of the competition Democrats are offering as alternatives.

Try as we might, we can’t find anyone in the current group of Democrat contenders that presents a viable alternative to President Trump that would appeal to the so-called independent  voters.

For instance, one Dem “frontrunner”  candidate is OK with ending 100,000 jobs…while Trump has created over 5 million, according to FactCheck.org.

Yep, that’s the way to win an election.

President Pelosi?

According to an article published in BizPacReview, Adam Schiff is now attempting to get rid of Vice President Pence via impeachment. That would leave Nancy Pelosi next in line for the presidency.

Well, that’s one way for Democrats to take over power. Why bother with elections?

Of course it always pays not to jump to conclusions too fast, but if the article is factual, then the country has a lot more at stake when the House voted for impeachment than just a spat with Donald Trump.

Can you spell C-O-U-P?

Musings has maintained all along that this was about a lot more than just dissatisfaction with a caustic-tongued New York political outsider.

It is too bad we don’t have an honest national police force.  Someone should definitely be getting under the hood of this political takeover attempt.

Dems don’t get it.

Apparently there was a Democrat debate on Thursday.  We aren’t even going to pretend we watched any of it.

However, excerpts have appeared on various channels and unfortunately, we have seen them.

Which leads us to wonder why anyone would vote for any of these weirdos.

You’ve got Tom Steyer, who wants to put 100s of thousands of people out of work to stop manmade  “climate change.”

You’ve got Liz Warren, who is all wound up over “wine caves” and Pete Buttigieg. Like, she never took money from big donors?

And finally, you’ve got Andrew Yang, who is at least aware that no one gives a s—  er, whit about impeaching the President just because the left doesn’t like him.

We don’t know whether the Senate will have a “trial” over impeachment, given that Nancy Pelosi is trying to hold onto the paperwork long enough for the Democrat senators to have an election to decide which one of them will oppose President Trump.

Have we mentioned before that this is a circus, and not a very good one?

 

President Pelosi?

According to an article published in BizPacReview, Adam Schiff is now attempting to get rid of Vice President Pence via impeachment. That would leave Nancy Pelosi next in line for the presidency.

Well, that’s one way for Democrats to take over power. Why bother with elections?

Of course it always pays not to jump to conclusions too fast, but if the article is factual, then the country has a lot more at stake when the House votes for impeachment today than just a spat with Donald Trump.
