A Tale Of Two Countries

 Kavanaugh Crying
Last week marked a pivotal point in American politics. The Left’s failing effort to nail Judge Brett Kavanaugh on intentionally vague and deliberately unprovable rape accusations made it clear that there is no deceitful tactic they won’t use to resist Republicans. Whatever conniving means they can use, they will. Your family, your job, your children, and your character are all collateral damage in their fight for power.

This is a historic new low. Certainly, never in my lifetime have I witnessed something this cunning and that opinion seems to be shared among older conservatives as well. Even among liberals, there is the perception that this has now gone way too far. Just to recap (and to cause a brain aneurism for the leftists reading this) there is ZERO evidence of any wrong-doing on behalf of Kavanaugh. ZERO. No physical evidence, no location, no date, and not a single corroborating witness named by Dr. Ford.

We are now at the point of what I fear is an irreparable divide in America.  The left and the right share absolutely no values. How can we even share a country?

One half of the country looks to the constitution as a guiding principle for governance. The other views it as an obstacle to more state power.

One half believes in the value of free speech. The other half considers ‘hate speech’ literal violence… but sees no problem with setting campuses on fire and beating people with bike locks.

One side wants the right to defend themselves from the Nikolas Cruzes of the world. The other gets PTSD from the site of an AR-15.

One side wants to uphold one of the defining characteristics of Western Civilization: that the burden of proof be levied with the accuser and that you are innocent until proven guilty. The other side celebrates an accusation destroying everything you have worked for your entire life.

It is the Rules For Rationales vs. the Rules For Radicals.

As my decade+ tenure abroad may be coming to an end, I now must consider where I will live in America and where I can go where people hold my values. This is proving to be a daunting task as half the country not only disagrees with my values but detests them.

How can I live in a community that will automatically deem my husband a victim based on his excessive melanin? How can I send my kids to schools where educators will teach them that their slight pigmentation is more valuable than their skill set? For the left, my children and husband are automatically apart of the victim hierarchy while I must remain on the peripheral as a white ally. And what will become of my family when an irate Marxist gets an inkling of the conservative values we live by?

We are up against an entity that believes obese women are now beautiful, that multi-millionaire athletes are victims, and that gender is a malleable characteristic.  When our fellow citizens are murdered by illegals, we want to protect other Americans. Instead the left rushes to protect the law-breakers.

We cannot agree on foundational principles because the left has no principles. The operate by any means necessary. The freedoms that we hold dear they wish to transfer to the state. They disdain the values for which our ancestors died.

When the Republicans stopped Merrick Garland from becoming a Supreme Court Justice they simply refused to hold the vote. They didn’t accuse him of being a gang rapist. Kavanaugh has been nominated for a lifetime appointment, but the crimes he is falsely accused of are worthy of lifetime imprisonment.

The slander of Judge Kavanaugh is proof that there is no middle ground. The left is completely devoid of morality. They hate America and will do anything to destroy it.

There are men and women in America salivating over the demise of the entire Kavanaugh family. They have never stopped to think “What if someone were to do this to me?” Would the ‘Believe All Women’ crowd uphold that standard when it was imposed on them or their husband or son. I doubt it. But perhaps that’s exactly what these people deserve; to lose the presumption of innocence and the necessity for evidence. They will never appreciate the values of American jurisprudence until they lose them.

 

The Left’s Perpetual State Of Political Blue Balls

For leftists, the demise of Trump is just as arousing as meeting a hot communist who loves socialized medicine, has a hammer and sickle tattoo and is actually willing to sleep with them. Unfortunately, both scenarios are just as improbable. Every week a ‘CNN Breaking News’ story develops and the left climaxes for days on end confident that this, THIS, will finally bring down the mango moron (their words, not mine). Alas, whatever dysentery the media is peddling, the dismantling of the Trump presidency never comes to fruition, and the resistance is left with the aforementioned blue balls.

This must be tough for liberals. It’s as if every week they meet a smart, kind, funny, beautiful woman, only to take her home and find out she’s a dude.

Which by the way, should not stop you from sleeping with her/him/ze/zir/they. It’s 2018 and some women have penises you transphobic bigot!

The upcoming publication of Bob Woodward’s new book was the first ‘Got him… Oh wait never mind’ moment of last week. The book is apparently riddled with accusations of a chaotic, dysfunctional White House, along with scathing insults directed at the president from four-star generals Mattis and Kelly. While the MSM is taking this book as gospel, both decorated generals refuted the quotes attributed to them, calling the excerpts outright fiction. This is reminiscent of the widely praised but similarly plagued with falsehoods, Fire and Fury.

To be fair, some of Woodward’s characterizations of the Trump White House appear spot on. It is undoubtedly chaotic, but we didn’t need Woodward to tell us that. It is evident based on the high turnover of staff. But why should we care if it is chaotic when this administration produces positive results? I’d much rather have a chaotic success than an organized failure.

The next spate of the week came in the form of the NYT op-ed, allegedly written by an anonymous ‘Senior Level White House Official.’ First, let’s address the purported job title of the writer. The term ‘Senior Level Official’ is a title thrown around inside the White House just as frequent as the accusation of being a Nazi. (Insert eyeroll.) The media will have you believe this person is possibly a cabinet member when indubitably, they are a tertiary staffer shuffling an endless supply of diet coke into the Oval Office.

The op-ed was not dissimilar to Woodward’s accounts of a manic leader, unable to stay on task, and absent of political principles. However, this resister deviates from the typical criticism and offers some well-deserved compliments for the administration’s policy changes. Unfortunately, these tributes are self-aggrandizing as the writer reports the accomplishments are despite Trump, not because of him. This is utterly preposterous. After slandering the president’s proposals by telling us for months that the markets would crash, people would die from the tax cuts, die from net neutrality, die from the US exit from the Paris Climate Accords, the resistance is now attempting to take credit for Trump’s success. Spare me. The op-ed not only proves that the deep state is real, it’s also apparently very shallow.

Lastly, the week was rife with spectacular performances by the cosplayers of the Democratic Party. The Kavanaugh hearings were complete with irrational outbursts, people in full Handmaid’s Tale costumes, and pompous Democratic leaders asking questions of a man much smarter than them.

The biggest gaffe came in the form of Senator Booker’s alpha-male facade of breaking Senate rules for the ‘sake of the truth’. Booker threatened to release classified emails ostensibly proving Kavanaugh was in favor of racial profiling. The reality was the emails were approved for release and proved in fact, Kavanaugh was against racial profiling.

Booker called it his ‘I am Spartacus’ moment. First of all, that’s cultural appropriation. Second of all, Booker probably hasn’t read the story of Spartacus. In the end, Spartacus is murdered and remaining members of his army are crucified.

While the events of last week left liberals hopeful that they could take down Trump or at least Kavanaugh, it was another string of misfires. Sadly, these failures have only amplified the hysterical rhetoric and violent tendencies of the left. They have become such dangerous idiots that I’m actually hoping for a small blue wave in November. We need something to placate the incels and hold off their inevitable psychopathic virgin, Elliot Rodger style attempted massacre.

For the deplorables, it was a pretty good week as President Trump remains the ultimate cock-block between the left and their Marxist, socialist, genderless utopia.

Nothing Is Sacred Anymore

President Trump’s worst characteristic is his spitefulness for those he doesn’t like. While most of us cringe as his unartful statements leave his lips and tweets hit the feed, the media talking heads chastise him. Unfortunately, those who castigate him for this vice, put it on full display this weekend.

For the rest of America, a funeral is a time to celebrate a person’s life, remember their endearing qualities, share memories, and be thankful for your time with the deceased. What we learned this weekend is that even while standing in the house of the Lord, virtue signaling your political opinion is more important than mourning the dead. Nothing is sacred anymore.

The necessity to interject politics into every aspect of American life is a cancer on our culture. Constant criticism of our political opponents was once a benign practice confined to our news media and Facebook debates. This disease has now metastasized to every corner of our life. It’s injected into television, sports, chicken sandwiches, quaint little restaurants in Virginia, and now the simple act of burying our dead. Rather than cherishing the final moments of our time with our kin, we look for opportunities to ‘own’ our enemies.

Despite his best effort to exclude Donald Trump from his memorial, John McCain’s funeral was very much about Trump. We listened as leaders criticized our destructive political climate while simultaneously participating in it. We heard blanketed insults towards our president when the focus should have solely been on the patriot in the casket. What aired on September 1st, was not a respectful memorial, it was a roast masquerading as a funeral complete with Royal Wedding style media coverage. President Trump truly is a remarkable deal-maker. He has purchased equity inside the frontal lobe of every resister without even spending a dime.

Additionally, the sudden adoration for McCain gave the service an air of forgery. Candidate McCain was a decent man when running for president in 2008, but you wouldn’t have known that if you were a democrat then. Back then he was the usual republican racist, sexist, bigot, etc. according to the left. The ‘maverick’ they loathed is now the ‘maverick’ revered.

Before penning my judgements on the ceremony, I re-evaluated my stance. Maybe I was being dramatic in my assessment? But my original interpretation was proven correct by The New Yorker in a piece titled, John McCain’s Funeral Was the Biggest Resistance Meeting Yet. Not only were the elites using the death of McCain to attack Trump, they were proud of themselves for doing it. They are completely unashamed of their attempt to use a funeral to sway political opinion. Our culture has now descended into the bowels of political ire at the expense of our burials, something we once held sacrosanct.

I keep naively thinking that this hyperbolic state of outrage will eventually fall into remission. That perhaps some rational discourse, positive economic data, and a reduction in foreign intervention might quell the fears of the left. That maybe, just maybe, the president’s pettiness might be countered with the advice from Michelle Obama, “When they go low, we go high.”

But it appears that this cancer has festered for far too long and is now terminal.

The president’s statements about McCain’s POW status were abominable and the flag snafu after his passing was petty and mean-spirited. But rather than respectfully mourning John McCain, it appears the resistance saw it as an opportunity to one-up this poor behavior.

It’s as if Trump said “No-one disrespects McCain as well as I do. No-one.”

The resistance: “Hold my beer.”
