The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

If you were to destroy the belief in immortality in mankind, not only love but every living force on which the continuation of all life in the world depended, would dry up at once. Fyodor Dostoevsky

Quote II

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today John Lennon

Quote III

CNN's John Berman asked Kennedy about his opposition to a bipartisan measure being championed by Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R., Texas) that would strengthen the information reporting process between state and federal agencies to better identify who is and isn't eligible to purchase firearms.

"I don't think we need more gun control laws," Kennedy said.

"Not a single one?" Berman replied.

"No," Kennedy affirmed. "I think we need more idiot control." Sen. John N. Kennedy (R-LA)

Trump: I Don't Want to Wait For Any Fancy-Pants Due Process Hearings Before Taking Guns Away from the Mentally Ill
Or Did He Say That?

— Ace

Note to Trump: Courts are pretty fast about processing temporary restraining orders and if there's genuine evidence that someone is mentally ill or a threat to himself or others, that evidence will be readily presentable to the court.

There is, therefore, no need to take someone's guns away -- to take someone's constitutional rights as a citizen away -- without even a court hearing (which tends to be biased in favor of granting restraining orders in the first place).

If there's no readily-presentable evidence that someone is making threats or mentally insane, maybe that's precisely the situation in which you'd want to be slow and deliberate about branding someone a sub-citizen.

The most embarrassing part is that he said this nonsense to Pence, who tried to steer him back into a defensible place, but Trump kind of just ignored his Vice President and went back to his grab-the-guns talking point anyway.

Alternative Take! Someone I trust saw this exchange in a different way. She sees Trump's reference to "due process in the courts" as a reference to a full hearing (up to an including a criminal trial), and that what Trump was trying to say -- inelegantly and maladroitly -- is that we need Gun Violence Restraining Orders as a speedier stop-gap.

Taken this way, Trump was agreeing with the idea of GVRO, and his reference to not needing "due process" was intended to mean that sometimes we need intervention before a full criminal trial. But at a speedier restraining order hearing which would involve "due process," but wouldn't be as lengthy and as long-awaited as a criminal trial.

He just put it, well, poorly. But in this interpretation, he wasn't saying we don't need "due process" at a TRO hearing; he meant we needed TROs until the full due process hearing of a criminal trial.

This explanation would explain why Pence did not appear flummoxed by Trump's comment -- he just took Trump's comment as agreeing with his own, if in a somewhat Trumpian locution.

Hope Hicks Resigning as WH Communications Director "In Coming Weeks"
— Ace

"Sources" told CNN that Trump was frustrated with Hicks over the handling of the Rob Portman spousal abuse scandal, whom she was dating during the period the White House was drafting statements in support of Portman.

I don't know if that's what's behind the resignation.

If It Felt Like the Children's Crusade Was a Joint Hollywood-Media-DNC Production With Billion Dollar Backers, That's Because That's Exactly What It Was
— Ace

That article says, in part:

Several large progressive organizations, donors, and a high-powered public relations firm are backing the March for Our Lives movement, which is quickly evolving from a student-run social media effort to end gun violence into one backed by some of the most influential activists in the country.

In the days after the shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people, the teenage survivors of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were impossible to ignore. They blanketed cable news coverage, built a massive following on social media, and began to organize a rally in the country's capital in support of gun reform.

Barely two weeks ago, the student survivors sat in a circle in the living room of one of their parents' homes, planning a trip to Tallahassee to meet with lawmakers and handling nitty-gritty matters like which media outlets to talk to.

Since then, major players and organizations 00 including Everytown, Giffords, Move On, Planned Parenthood, and the Women’s March LA 00 told BuzzFeed News they are helping the students with logistics, strategy, and planning for next month's March for Our Lives rally and beyond. Much of the specific resources the groups are providing to the Parkland students remains unclear-- as is the full list of supporting organizations-- but there are broad outlines.

Giffords is a group started by Gabby Giffords to push gun restrictions.


Everytown for Gun Safety 00 bankrolled mostly by Michael Bloomberg -- recently secured a $1 million donation from entrepreneur and philanthropist Eli Broad.

MoveOn said it will encourage its millions of members to follow and promote the March for Our Lives movement on social media and attend the rally next month. The group said it had offered support in organizing logistics such as security and portable toilets, but it is unclear if the students have taken them up on their offer.

A spokesperson for Planned Parenthood said the group is "teaching and hosting training"” for young activists across the US "to keep momentum going so they don't get burned out."


Democratic US Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Broward County resident for nearly 30 years, told BuzzFeed News she has been in touch with students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas since the day after the shooting, helping them connect to state legislators and plan their trip to Tallahassee last week.

Wasserman Schultz said that because this is the first time many of the students have interacted with legislators, she advised them on communication strategy. She also said she been in contact with Mark Kelly --Gabrielle Giffords' husband and one of the founders of the Giffords foundation.


The American Federation of Teachers, which helped bus students and parents to Tallahassee multiple times last week, are now assisting with the March for Our Lives rally.
The federation's president told BuzzFeed News that they are also helping support next month's march as well as helping to shape the vision and mission for the group once the rally is over.


After that, she says the goal is to carry that momentum until November -- with some of the students already using the hashtag #VoteThemOut.

"We are also marching towards midterms," she said, adding that the activists intend for gun control and student safety to be a major platform and key issue for voters in the midterm elections.


42West, a PR firm that usually works with the entertainment industry, is now helping the students and parents manage their new careers in entertainment.

42West is not providing the students with legal advice or financial advice, the spokesperson said, and refused to provide details on who is helping manage the millions of dollars in donations they have received.


In addition to the millions of dollars raised by A-list celebrities including Oprah, George and Amal Clooney, Steven Spielberg, and Jeffrey Katzenberg, the March for Our Lives GoFundMe page has raised an additional $2.7 million as of Tuesday.

David Hines --@hradzka on Twitter -- discussed this on that platform. Below are his comments, taken out of Twitter format.

* Debbie Wassermann Schultz aiding Tallahassee lobbying

* Teacher's union getting buses to Tallahassee

* Bloomberg's guys and Women's March working on march

* MoveOn on social media promotion, offer of march logistics

* Planned Parenthood doing trainings for student activists


This is what organization that gets results actually looks like. Not a bunch of magical kids in somebody's living room. And it was right off the bat; Wassermann Schultz was there working hard on day 2.


The president of the American Federation of Teachers tells Buzzfeed they're also behind the national school walkout. I'd thought teachers were supposed to get kids *into* school, but maybe that's just me.


But what strikes me about all this isn't the organization -- if you start reading books about organizing, it becomes pretty clear how all this works.

What strikes me is that *no journalist covering the story wrote about this stuff for two weeks.*

Every story on the organizing for two weeks was about the kids. I lost track of the number of bluechecks I've seen rhapsodizing over the Parkland kids, and how organized they were, and how effective. The WSJ said it was because they were born on social media; it was instinctive.


But this stuff isn't instinctive. It's skilled work; you have to learn how to do it, and it takes really a lot of people. You don't just get a few magical kids who're amazing and naturally good at it.


The big tip-off for *anybody* should have been the $500K donations from Oprah and George Clooney. They don't give money on a whim; somebody they knew called them and asked.

JOURNALISTS. "Wowwww, these kiiiiiids"


Anyway, now that the organizations are more open about their involvement, at some point the Parkland kids will go into the background a bit in media exposure terms, the same way Deray and Linda Sarsour did. That's part of how organizing fame works these days.


The big takeaway on this: for two weeks, journalists abjectly failed in their jobs, which is to tell the public what's going on. And if any of them had any familiarity with organizing campaigns, they absolutely knew.


Also, let me point out something that's damning: *none of the Righty outlets writing about Parkland picked up on the orgs, either.*

Righties need to learn how organizing works, and prominent righties need to educate their people on the subject. Because ignorance is damaging.

Well, in fairness, Elizabeth Harrington at the Free Beacon had part of the story, reporting that George Clooney's media publicist was handling bookings for the Parkland "natural instinctual spokeschildren" (as the Wall Street Journal dishonestly suggested they were).

The media of course did know about this; they obviously knew they were going through Hollywood publicists to get bookings of these "natural instinctual spokeschildren."

They covered it up, because it made for a better political narrative to claim this was all spontaneous and organic.

As a friend said: They were not ignorant; they were complicit. They were co-producers in this media venture.

They knew this was a lavish Hollywood production and, like most entertainment journalist whores, helped publicize it to the hilt.

Morning Consult Poll: Corporations That Dabble In SJW Politicking Against NRA Lose Public Approval
— Ace

It's almost as if the blue state liberals running the middle management of these companies thinks that all of America is liberal like them and thinks that their FaceBook feeds and Twitter timelines represent overall American thought.

And it's almost like they don't even bother asking if it's good for the company to take sides in the Last Culture War-- like they are willing to see their company lose money if it means they can do a good turn for The Cause.

The Morning Rant
— Open Blogger

talking ape.jpg
"Hey, I have an idea: I think it's time we stopped treating MS-13 as a law enforcement problem, and instead, as a military one. Like what George W. Bush did with Al-Qaeda after 9/11. So any gang-banger who gets arrested for gangbanging is inspected for MS-13 tats. The DOJ would have declared that those tats are the equivalent of a military insignia, i.e. a uniform, and if found on the gangbanger's body, off he goes to Gitmo for his speedy military trial and execution. And if MS-13 gets wise and stops tatting up their peeps they send north, then arrested gangbangers should be treated like enemy soldiers captured without uniforms, i.e. shipped off to Gitmo for their their speedy military trials and executions. It's win-win."

Now Here's A National Leader With a "Can-Do" Anti-Terrorism Policy:

I especially liked this part:

Rodrigo Duterte also said the communists are easier to hit than birds because they have bigger heads.


His latest crass remarks, which the government issued to reporters yesterday, came after human rights groups condemned him this week for saying troops should shoot female communist guerrillas in the genitals to render them “useless”.

Ha! I think Duterte just out-Trumped Trump.

The Morning Report 2/28/18
— Open Blogger


Good morning kids. Middle of the week and up front, a suspicious envelope received at the Fort Myer military base has made several people ill and sent three to the hospital. No word from the Son of a Postage Stamp if we need envelope control or to raise the age of mailing letters to 21. Stay tuned for developments, in both the story and snark.

Of course, the disarming of lawful Americans because of Leftist-induced violence tops the headlines this morning. Despite the best (worst) efforts of the Democrat-Media complex to convince us otherwise, Americans in the main are "standing their ground" as it were, as evidenced by both a fine editorial from IBD and the latest Rasmussen survey showing people thinking government is the problem and not guns by a clear two to one margin. Even Paul Ryan, who is generally not known around these parts for a steel spine is striking the right chords about the aforementioned cultural rot and mental health issues. Naturally, none of this phases Cuck Schemer and company, and Rep Tom Massie is warning us about the GOP-e ready, willing and able to sell us out on this.

On to Amnesty and Immigration, several links illustrate clearly the perils of open borders and lawlessness, both from foreign invaders jumping our borders to those we willingly invite in to elected officials who are openly insurrectionist. The mayor of Oakland, California by all that is right and good should be arrested and imprisoned for her actions in aiding and abetting the obstruction of justice. Legal eagles may weigh in but considering the citizenry of that shit-hole and the somnolent atmosphere at the DoJ, this fiend won't be going anywhere more dangerous than an unlicensed nail salon. That said, the disastrous early parole policy of Governor Moonbeam may unleash up to 10,000 sex offenders upon the Golden State in the very near future so there is that (and your definition of "that" may vary).

In the Mueller Meshugas, just why did the FBI let Imran Awan's wife, who is regarded as a co-conspirator in the Congressional hacking case, flee the country while the Federalist ponders the Herculean task of reforming our national intelligence and law enforcement agencies that have been so utterly poisoned with political hacks.

The big news on the political front is barely into his second year in office, the President has announced his intention to seek reelection in 2020. Considering Mueller and everything else being hurled at him, that announcement, probably the earliest one that I can recall, has got be sending the Left into paroxysms of rage. Good. Choke on it. As I have said, November is both light years away and just around the corner but considering the unmasking, if you will, of the Media, the Left and their now naked display of hatred for not only the President but every vestige of what makes this country great, my confidence in the outcomes for the midterms and even 2020 is growing day by day. Let's not be lax or continue to bask in the glow of November 2016, fun as that might be. The fight goes on every day.

Other links of note, it turns out YouTube has entrusted well-known hate group SPLC to advise on its censorship initiatives, bug-wit Jimmy Kimmel thinks we should ignore the entertainment industry's decades-long sexual assault epidemic but the blood libeling of Republicans needs to go to eleventy and Papa Johns Pizza has wised up and cut off the NFL. Lastly, encouraging news about the fight against Alzheimer's disease.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“Let’s focus more on addressing these problems in mental health that we’ve started to deal with in Congress. Let’s close loopholes, let’s figure out what went wrong with government before people start talking about taking away the rights of law abiding citizens.” Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA)

Quote II

If you're tempted to believe with Governor Cuomo that government is just like Mom and Pop rather than Big Brother, just ask yourself one question: When was the last time all the IRS wanted from you was a hug and a kiss. Former Senator Paul Laxalt (R-NV)

Quote III

If you have always believed that everyone should play by the same rules and be judged by the same standards, that would have gotten you labeled a radical 50 years ago, a liberal 25 years ago and a racist today. Thomas Sowell, November 28, 1998.

Quote IV

“Even if they’re on your property, touching your property, it’s my understanding that you’re not even allowed to fire a warning shot. This is property, it’s stuff – it’s not your home. It’s different if you feel threatened in your home, then you do have some right to protect yourself and your family.” Rocky Mountain Civil Liberties director Sharon Polsky

Jazz Shaw: The Heartbreaking Story of a Most-Wanted Drug Dealer and Gang-Member Being Deported For Some Unfathomable Reason
— Ace

Lo siento.

He's only had a few years "clean" according to his family, but before that, he was enough of a bad guy to make the most wanted list as a gang member, drug dealer and violent felon. And the most wanted list era was a few years ago since he’s gone to ground since then.


But if all you did was read the first five or six paragraphs of the national news coverage you'd only know that the federal agents had dragged the poor fellow out of his garden, leaving his sobbing wife and young daughter in their wake. In fact, the actual title of the article reads, "Family Heartbroken After Napa Man Arrested By ICE Agents."

Apparently it's the media's plan to document the deportation of every single illegal alien, including the hardened criminals.

20 States File Suit Against Obamacare, Again: If the Law Was Only Found Constitutional Because It Was Supposedly a "Tax," Is It Still Constitutional, Now That It Contains No Tax Provisions?
— Ace

I expect that Chief Justice Roberts, the biggest disappointment since Mr. Plinkett's son, will say "If it was born a tax, it remains a tax even after the tax-part is amputated it," or some other bullshit.

Still, I guess hope remains, except, spoiler alert, hope doesn't remain. Chief Justice Roberts did not decide this on the law in the first place -- he decided it on social pressure and politics -- and a change in Obamacare's standing as a tax will therefore not matter to him.

The GOP tax law "eliminated the tax penalty of the ACA, without eliminating the mandate itself. What remains, then, is the individual mandate, without any accompanying exercise of Congress's taxing power, which the Supreme Court already held that Congress has no authority to enact," the complaint states.

"Not only is the individual mandate now unlawful, but this core provision is not severable from the rest of the ACA--as four Justices of the Supreme Court already concluded."

It may still be possible to get rid of Obamacare, but it will take an act of political will that I doubt the GOP is capable of. It always seemed unlikely to me the court would take care of this for us (even if it should) -- life just doesn't work like that, at least not for Republicans.

Any victories are hard-won and the result of years of struggle. On the progs get their victories handed to them by robe-wearing Secular Priests.

Jeff Sessions: The DOJ Will Investigate Alleged FISA Abuses
— Ace


I think Jeff Sessions is too dogmatically pro-prosecutor and pro-law-enforcement to even possess the imagination required to imagine they might have broken the law.

But whatever, we'll see.

"Yes, it will be investigated," Sessions told reporters at the court that oversees FISA warrants.

Sessions said an investigation it is the "appropriate thing" to do so, and that his department's inspector general "will take that as one of the matters he'll deal with."

He doesn't sound very personally invested in the matter.

Consumer Confidence At Highest Since Clinton Tech Bubble
— Ace

Trump ran into the building and kicked economic malaise's ass.*

U.S. consumer confidence jumped to a 17-year high as optimism about employment prospects grew and Americans began seeing additional money in their paychecks from recently enacted tax cuts, data from the New York-based Conference Board showed Tuesday.

The report reflects increased confidence in employment and incomes, which could support consumer spending. The labor differential, which measures the gap between respondents saying jobs are plentiful and those who say they're hard to get, rose to 24.7 percentage points, the highest since 2001.

Recent tax legislation signed in December may have also buoyed sentiment, as many Americans saw bigger after-tax paychecks in February due to the law.

Incidentally, the DJIA rose +399, coming within 3% of hitting all time records. It's down 200 points today, but the trend is your friend.

* By the way, I'm going to be doing more Hero Worship stuff about Trump. Not because I'm really hero worshipping -- it's more gloating + driving the NeverTrump sissies crazy. They're convinced that a Cult of Trump exists, and yet deny that there's a Cult of Tapper.

Didn't they say of Johnny Cash that his persona was Mr. Saturday Night (the bad, hard-drinking, womanizing version of himself) and Mr. Sunday Morning (the God-fearing, churhgoing side)?

Jake Tapper seems to have a Mr. Sunday Morning twitter persona and a Mr. Saturday Night persona for his actual TV show.

But the Twitter Addicts think that Twitter is the real world, so they only seem to care about his occasional Twitter concession to them.

I've asked him a hundred times, as Sean Davis asks now: When does any of this "fairness" you show (under duress) on Twitter make it to your actual TV "news" program?

Never, pretty much.

Media Mocks Trump For Saying He'd Rush Unarmed to Stop Armed Assault; But They Forget That Time He Did Intervene Unarmed to Stop an Armed Assault
— Ace

The media is enjoying its everyday easy posting -- recapping what the late night clowns said about Trump last night.

I wouldn't bother watching that, by the way. I'm not linking it because it's funny or interesting, but just to provide the cite proving my statement about the late night clown bukkake party.

A lot of jeering over Trump's claim he that he'd like to think he would have done something about the school shooting, even if unarmed himself. It's certainly not impossible to conceive -- many teachers used their bodies as human shields to protect student, and one unarmed cop rushed in to stop the shooter.

But the media has this weird thing about "good guys" just being incapable of bravery and effective (and lawful) violence to stop crime. And of course it has this unshakable idea that Trump is terrible in all ways.

So they're laughing at the idea he might have risked his safety to do stop a shooting. Well, maybe, maybe not. I think most real men actually think they would risk their lives in the defense of an innocent; it tends to be the feminized soibois who laugh at the idea as an impossibility. (And I'm thinking they're just universalizing from their own cowardice.)

Would Trump have run into a hail of bullets? Would you?

I certainly like to think I would, but I know that courage fails even brave men (a group I can claim no membership in). But I'd sure like to think I would.

But amidst the laughing about this preposterous idea that Trump might intervene to stop an assault, there should be this minor fact kept in mind: There was that one time he actually did, and it made (of course) the newspapers.

Trump was riding around Manhattan in his limo with his girlfriend, and later wife, Marla Maples. He saw a guy beating another guy. Trump told his driver to pull over. Maples did not want him to get involved.

But he did.

Trump told James Rosen of the Daily News, "The guy with the bat looked at me, and I said, 'Look, you’ve gotta stop this. Put down the bat.' I guess he recognized me because he said, 'Mr. Trump, I didn’t do anything wrong.' I said, 'How could you not do anything wrong when you’re whacking a guy with a bat?' Then he ran away."

There were witnesses, including Kathleen Romeo, who told the newspaper that when he emerged from his limo, the crowd cried, "There's Trump."

Now, yeah, that's "just" a baseball bat, but anyone who would sneer at standing up to a thug attacking someone with a baseball bat has obviously never been in any kind of physical fight and therefore had any cause to think about how damaging such a weapon can be.

Incidentally, Trump also said to the group he was addressing that he was sure most of the assembled crowd would do likewise.

I suppose Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and Trevor Noah would not do likewise, and know that about themselves, and therefore find the idea that anyone else would to be just some kind of fantasy, like the idea that an armed citizen could ever be courageous and cool-headed enough to stop a violent crime by using or threatening to use his gun.

And that's because they're narcissists, of course, as many progs and wannabe TV evangelists are: If I can't/wouldn't do it, no one can or would do it, and therefore, it shouldn't be done at all.

That's 99% of the reason for the gun-control frenzy: Many people just don't want the heavy moral responsibility of carrying a gun and being responsible for protecting their own lives and their loved one's lives (and possibly for taking the life of someone threatening those lives), and therefore think that no one else should volunteer to bear that moral responsibility.

Sources: Megyn Kelly Rude, Nasty, and Anti-Woman
— Ace

But she seems so compassionate and caring.

'She's not for women': Make-up artist says Megyn Kelly makes female staffers cry, lords over subordinates and lies to management to get her way, as her attempt to revamp herself as the soft and caring face of NBC falters

Former Fox make-up artist Iren Halperin revealed that Kelly was 'disrespectful' and 'rude' on set, kicking out other reporters in order to be made up first

Halperin said Kelly also spread lies to management about the artist after she made the anchor upset, and that Kelly is particularly mean to women

Sources from NBC say the anchor runs a tense set, leaving many staffers in tears

The source says she is 'hated' on the Today Show and 'is seen as tarnishing the brand, out-of-control and selfish'

In January Kelly fired Kevin Bleyer, one of her head writers, after he complained about bullying by the show's two top bosses
