Mueller files more charges against Sexy Paul Manafort the Great...

what a load of crap!



Has Manafort failed to make his mortgage payments?  Is he not  keeping the lawn cut?  Maybe he stiffed his housekeeper? Inquiring minds want to know


The accusation:
The filing offers one example in which Manafort provided Federal Savings Bank with "doctored profit and loss statements" for 2015 and 2016, overstating the income of his lobbying firm, DMP International "by millions of dollars" to secure a $9 million mortgage on a Fairfax, Virginia property pledged against his $10 million bail.  read the rest
Because no one has ever manipulated figures on a credit application.

No one who has ever been a Subchapter S  Corporation, whose balance statements tend to be very weak, would ever think to run their already filed tax returns through a copy machine, white out the figures, re-run them through the aforementioned copy machine, fill in new figures, and present said papers to a mortgage or bank firm. 

Oh, no - that would never, ever happen.

No one buying a car would lie to the salesman when filling out the credit app.

Uh uh - no, never happened.  

Witness your hard earned tax money, extracted from you by force, being flushed down the toilet by these bureaucratic weenies, while not having time to follow protocol over numerous reports of a homicidal future school shooter who proceeded to slaughter 17 people.

Mike Pence Answers a Gaggle of Fat Ugly Trump Hating Women Who Got Together to Mock Christians...

the shocking part is millions of people sit down in front of their TV's and listen to this drivel. 

That sort of thinking is being pumped into the heads of people all over the country on a daily basis.  It's not just The View, but most of the so-called drama and late night entertainment shows who propagandize against us dirt people.

When not watching such mindless blah-blah, the children of this country are fed a steady diet of violence, explicit sex (including little boys as young as nine or ten years old watching repellent pornography),  told that abortion is a choice and not the murder of an innocent child, and subjected to daily indoctrination in our public schools.

And we wonder why a mentally unstable man, who probably suffers from a combination of fetal alcohol syndrome and possibly Fragile X Syndrome, would go into a school and murder 17 people?
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle. Sun Tzu - The Art of War 
And here's a site that lists the many, many times The Bible speaks to "knowing thy enemy."

Since I don't watch TV, and if I did it certainly wouldn't be The View, I made myself watch this.  As painful as it may be, I suggest you do the same.

Shrove Tuesday...

otherwise known as Mardi Gras, Paczki Day, Pancake Day, and just plain Tuesday for pagans.

The Poles are eating Paczki, the Italians are imbibing in pancakes, and the Mardi Gras peeps are drinking up all the available liquor to ensure it doesn't go bad during the 40 days of Lent.

As for me and my home, we're having king crab legs, filet of beef, asparagus, and stuffed bacon wrapped jalapenos.  

The jalapenos are something I usually have on Easter Sunday after the Lenten fasts, but I decided that before and after was okay.  There's no such thing as too many stuffed jalapenos.
   

Some Crab Leg and Asparagus Hints

My top and really only hint for crab legs is to take a box knife and slit the softer white underside of the leg (leaving the shell on.)  No more struggling with a nut cracker and getting your hands stabbed with little crab spikes.  

Asparagus?  Any asparagus over the size of a small straw needs to be peeled.  Use a vegi peeler and apply almost zero pressure.  All you're trying to accomplish is to remove the tough outer skin.  

My favorite way to cook asparagus is by roasting.  When I don't roast, I wrap it in wet paper towels and give it about 2 - 3 minutes in the microwave depending on the thickness of the stalk.  Simple and easy.

SJW's infect the Olympics...

turning it into a celebration of all things homosexual, Communist, and sexy routines on the ice complete with wardrobe malfunctions.

The only event that ever held any interest for me in the winter Olympics is ice skating.  Each year it has gotten worse with focus on jumps instead of grace and beauty.

This year some couple were warned to change their routine since the judges thought the man's face was buried in the woman's crotch for way too long.  And the skater from So. Korea almost had her top fall off when it was clear to anyone that without a stabilizing string across the back at shoulder height would almost guarantee such a mishap.  Did they not test the costume first - or was it planned?


And then we have the women skaters waving and flapping their arms about in truncated and abrupt poses making them appear like demented octopodes.

Ladies - hold your positions long enough for us to admire your form.

I'm not even going to get into the whole " open homosexuals are in Olympics and isn't that just peachy keen and open minded" because we all know that who you have sex with has everything to do with, well - everything. 

Crazy old Communist bat defends North Korea.  Does she think it's a utopia like my libtard bellwethers think Cuba is??

Let Trump Be Trump - the inside story of his rise to the Presidency...

by Cory Lewandowski and David Bossie.

I'm currently speed reading Let Trump be Trump - the inside story of his rise to the presidency, because it's due back at the library in a few days.  I started this morning and I'm already half way through this most excellent book.

Our library books are checked out for a month, with renewal possible for another month if the book is not on hold.  Unfortunately, this book is on hold.  Even though I have a ten day grace period, one simply does not keep a book when there is another person waiting to read it.

And while we're talking about library books, under no circumstances should you ever fold a page.  Never, ever!

I waited so long to start it because in the back of my little pea brain I thought it wouldn't be very good.  I was wrong.  It is not only good, it is excellent.

Finally - a Question Answered

Since the beginning the meme of "Donald Trump is a racist", which continues to this day, has made me wonder how this falsehood got started.

I now have my answer.

On June 16th, 2015 when Trump announced his intention to run for president (yay!), riding down the escalator at Trump Tower, at one point during his 45 minute speech he said these thirty words and I remember them well:
"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems...they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
On June 17th, Dylann Roof entered a church in Charleston, SC, and murdered nine black people.  That was all Hillary Clinton needed to accuse Trump of triggering a completely off-the-wall crazy person to commit a crime - and the MSM gathered it up in their fake lying little arms, as though it was a football blessed by God, and scamper down the field for a touchdown.  And there, my dear friends, is the genesis of the stupid racist meme.

Hillary Starts the Ball Rolling  

From Politico 6/19/2015:

NB:  I left the link in so you can see that it takes you to a 404 page.  If you actually Google the transcript from the June 16th Jon Ralston show you will not find this statement. Is Cory Lewandowki, David Bossie, and  Politico lying?  You be the judge.
Hillary Clinton took a swipe at Donald Trump on Thursday, saying — without mentioning him by name — that his presidential launch speech was offensive to Mexicans and “emblematic” of the kind of rhetoric that cannot be tolerated in the wake of the tragic South Carolina shootings.“We have to have a candid national conversation about race and about discrimination, prejudice, hatred,” Clinton said in an interview with KNPB’s Jon Ralston. “But unfortunately, the public discourse is sometimes hotter and more negative than it should be, which can, in my opinion, trigger people who are less than stable.”
“For example,” the former secretary of state added, “a recent entry into the Republican presidential campaign said some very inflammatory things about Mexicans. Everybody should stand up and say that’s not acceptable. You don’t talk like that on talk radio. You don’t talk like that on the kind of political campaigns.” 
How'd that work out for you, Hillary?

Lent

This coming Wednesday is not only St. Valentine's Day, but also Ash Wednesday, signalling the beginning of the 40 days of Lent.  Some people find this amusing.  I do not.

What better day for couples to declare their love for one another as Christ loves us?  Christ loves us so much that at the end of Lent he will allow himself to be nailed to a cross and in three days will rise again to ascend to heaven.

This Lenten season I will not be posting on either Sunday or Wednesday.
"There are two moments that matter. One is when you know that your one and only life is absolutely valuable and alive. The other is when you know your life, as presently lived, is entirely pointless and empty. You need both of them to keep you going in the right direction. Lent is about both." Richard Rohr. O.F.M

FISA Memo - Everything you need to know in 3:59 minutes...

as it should be.
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) on Thursday released a video in which Republican lawmakers chided the FBI and Justice Department for using an unverified dossier to help obtain a warrant to spy on former Donald Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. 
House Intelligence Committee chairman Devin Nunes (R., Calif.) appeared along with committee member Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) and others to explain the GOP-written memo.

Nancy Pelosi: Invokes her Catholic faith in defense of illegal aliens..

Queen of the Seamless Argument Garment.

What is this "seamless garment theory" and why is it important.

Based on John 19:23:
When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.
I have no desire to go into a lengthy discussion of the seamless garment argument in defense of abortion. The seamless garment essentially lumps all "life issues" - poverty, homelessness, health care, war, capital punishment, and abortion as equal to each other.  The pro-death folks unwittingly use this theory to defend the killing of babies in the womb.


For instance, a child who is going to be born into poverty would be better off being killed since the pro-abortion peeps think pro-life people don't care about the hungry baby after he or she is born.  Or, it's okay to kill a baby since we execute criminals.

The meme to the right is a perfect example of seamless garment thinking. Obviously, the issue of seamless garment is a bit deeper and I suggest that you do some research on your own because you're going to hear this sort of rhetoric from pro-abortion people all the time.

So now we have self-professed "devout" Catholic Pelosi, elected by her constituents to represent them, who stands around, no doubt drugged to the gills, in order to blah blah for 8 hours about protecting illegals.

And yet, this "devout" Catholic, supports a "woman's right to choose" to kill her baby.  It' a form of seamless garment going on here. What's she's actually saying is that illegals not being able to stay here is just as important as killing babies.

 Her logic is so faulty (nonexistent?) that she's incapable of realizing that her seamless garment theory actually supports abolishing abortion since it's equal in injustice to deporting illegal aliens.  And since we can't as good Christians deport illegals, what follows, for anyone who has more than three black eyed peas rattling around in their skull, is we shouldn't be able to kill babies.  Isn't equality great? 

And the gall of that woman to invoke the image of her two rosaries, blessed by Popes, to make her case.  Note to Nancy - I have a rosary blessed by a Pope and merely having it hasn't made me one bit holier - and neither have yours.

Which brings me to the Women't March pink pussy hat wearing hate group.

  I debated about posting this video thinking at first that it's by a Catholic (but not explicitly Catholic), and second it's 27 minutes long.

But, by gosh, I'm posting it anyway because I think it's the best and most emotional and spot on talk about what drives the pink pussy hat women to their venomous displays of vulgarity aimed primarily at Donald Trump. 

I can only offer up this video to you as a bowl of water.  It's your choice whether to take a few sips or not.

Michael Matt brings up the bonnet rouge of the French Revolution and compares it to the pink pussy hat - a connection I would have never made on my own.

If you've ever wondered exactly what it is these angry women want, wonder no more.  Michael will clear it up for you and give you new insights. 

Pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee and watch this.  It's excellent.

Latest Strzok and Page texts: Obama knew?...

so did we.

And we also knew that he knew. 

And I ask once again, who cares?

Because this is exactly what's going to happen:

Nothing.

Oh, they'll make a show of changing procedure, having new rules, maybe even finally ditching the whole FISA court thingy.

Will heads roll?

Only a few expendable little guys.  For the rest it will be business as usual.


I don't aim to slosh dirty water all over everyone's hopes and dreams and desire for vengeance, but the sooner you understand that all this outrage and angst won't even amount to enough to buy you breakfast at McDonald's, the sooner you can get on with your life.

The way to the truth is by asking questions - not just any questions, but the right questions. So far, I don't see those questions being asked.

Peter Strzok and Lisa Page will be vilified by the left as liars and their text messages will be portrayed as nothing but pillow talk while the married lovers carried on their elicit affair.

Odumbo will skate.  Hillary will skate. Mueller will skate.

And the MSM will skate.

Dr. Sebastian Gorka: The real Donald Trump, revealed...

with a hearty H/T to Hardnox...

Which brings me to the next must read blog on my mission to bring you the best of the smaller blogs - Nox and Friends, where Hardnox hangs out with his merry band of co-conspirators writers.

Allow me to add that when I call a blog "small" it is only to distinguish it from high budget, often corporate owned blogs like Breitbart.  It not a reflection of their actual page views, which are considerable.  I'm quite certain that all of the "smaller" blogs I visit when combined account for easily way over several million page views per day.

I'll skip over the part about Nox being a manly alpha male type who hunts the dangerous unicorn, raises foundation quarter horses, and does incredible custom wood working. I'm not sure how or when he finds time to write.

His site brings you the very best in news and commentary and you would do yourself a favor by adding it to your reading list.

Is the blogosphere dying?...

to be replaced with Facecrap, Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram?

I don't think so.

William Jacobson, over at Legal Insurrection, posted Surviving the death of the blogosphere, back on Jan. 28th, and it got me to thinking about why we do what we're doing.

Over the past few years I've come to rely on my news and opinion from an ever decreasing pool of people.  I rarely go to MSM, including Fox  The larger blog sites, employing many writers and a bunch of fancy high tech stuff to run a spiffy looking blog, have become a bit off-putting.  The only larger sites I check out are Drudge and Breitbart, and that's just to get the ball rolling in the morning.

While sites like Legal Insurrection or The Last Refuge could hardly be considered "small", they've managed to maintain a small time feel by building community. 

I've read in some places that Twitter and Facecrap are losing readers.  I wouldn't know as I confess to never "getting" Twitter, and Facecrap is just a place to link my articles and spy on people (a seriously bad habit!!)  I do, however, have a few local peeps on Facecrap who keep me up to date on local goings on and events. 

So why do I rely on the smaller sites for my daily jolt of information?

Let's face facts here.  If you have a site like Gateway Pundit that has exploded in page views, taken on high tech site designers, lined up a bunch of writers, and has owners who fly around attending functions you need to have money to keep going.  Lots of money.

I remember when Hot Air used to be high on my list as a go-to place until the site was sold.  I haven't been there in years. 

Understand this:  I am not knocking anyone who makes money from their blog.  Quite the contrary - I applaud them and am happy for their monetary success.

The downside of this success is the tendency to become echo chambers in the rush to post, post, post in order to keep the clicks coming so the ad revenue will continue to support the blog.  This rush of posts does not always support the truth.

So what's my point?

Glad you asked.

My main point is that smaller blogs should not be forgotten and should receive a larger audience.  And I believe that is already happening. I don't think that my experience is a one off.  I absolutely believe that people yearn for truth and are becoming just as turned off by larger sites as I am. 

Unlike earlier times of the great salons where people could gather to discuss art, literature, or politics, today's peeps are using blogs as a way to form community and share ideas.  Is it ideal?  No, but it's what we have and it will have to do for now unless you're willing to start your own "salon" - which I highly recommend. More on that in upcoming posts. 

Here's where I take a step out onto a very shaky half dead limb:  I think the future belongs to the little guys who have hung on year after year.  It will belong to the people who have built communities where people can discuss ideas, impart opinions and knowledge through the comments, and have some fun along the way. 

To that effort, over the next few weeks I'm going to be highlighting some blogs who should be visited, read, engaged with, bookmarked, and supported.  These are the blogs doing a yeoman's work of sorting through hundreds of articles every day to synthesize the news into a readable article that has been vetted as to the truth.

Starting Off

Bunkerville 

Bunkerville, or Bunk as I call her/him, has one of the best smaller blogs floating around in the ethernet.  Well researched and verified information makes this site invaluable for truth seekers.  

It takes a tremendous amount of time to do what Bunk does and I applaud her/him for knowing more about a well run site than I do (which is just about everyone.)

Whatfinger News


If you're getting a bit tired of Drudge or other aggregate news link sites, Whatfinger News is the newest kid on the block, and doing a very good job.  I've come to rely on them more and more.  Drudge better look out.

Super Bowl Sunday...

promises to be very, very cold.

Tomorrow's temperature in Minneapolis  is expected to top out at 6° with a wind of 10 mph.  That works out to a wind chill factor of about -10°.  Good luck if you have to stand in line to get into the gazillion dollar stadium.

Meantime, every little commie dissident group known to man and beast is planning mega protests over absolutely everything.  They're really ticked off that only rich people can attend the Super Bowl.

Violent racist group, Black Lives Matter, has issued a "travel warning" to people of color who may be visiting because the St. Paul police are "the deadliest in Minnesota."  Whatever.

Some of these loons (no offense intended to the beautiful Minnesota state bird), are even planning a march.  They actually think they're going to gather together outside and then march to the stadium.  In a word - no.  You're not getting anywhere near that stadium.  And may I remind you that the time for frostbite to set in when the windchill is -10° is about 30 minutes.  Have fun.

But best of all - no one cares about you, not one news outlet will give you  coverage, and you will accomplish exactly zero in the way of your precious activism.

If you're planning on watching the game - have fun and eat some wings for me. I won't be watching, so I'm having wings for dinner tonight.

Bret Baier interviews Devin Nunes after memo release...

Bret tries his best to trip up Nunes.

It doesn't work.

Bret Bair: "Are there parts of the dossier that are true?"

Devin Nunes:  "What? That Russia is a country and Carter Page is a person? Other than that I don't know of anything."





The FISA Memo...

and a few things to think about.

Number one:  As predicted, if you scan the comments at Huff and Puff (no link on purpose), the brain dead libtards (I repeat myself) think this is a big "nothing burger."  And you know why?  Because, they can't contemplate the possibility that if this is allowed to go unpunished and unfixed, the next time it could be their side hounded and spied on with the likes of the Steele Dossier, a provably partisan unverified document, as the basis for a warrant.

Number two:  In spite of the dangerous infiltration of the intelligence network of the United States government by corrupt, mendacious bad actors - Trump still won the election. 

Let that sink in for a moment!

MAGA!

Sorry!

FISA Memo...

tomorrow?

Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing. Macbeth

Scumbag Michael Wolff doesn't know the difference between "infer" and "imply"...

and he calls himself an author?

I apologize in advance for subjecting you to Mika and Joe, but to witness someone talking about what he "inferred" rather than the correct "implied" is just too good to pass up.

Imply and infer are not interchangeable. The speaker does the implying, and the listener does the inferring.   If he inferred it then his writing might imply it based on his own inference. Does his book say anything that implies it?

And easy way to remember is:  Only you can imply, and only I can infer. 

Now that we have that out of the way:
