One thing I will never understand about the LGBTQ community no matter how many times its explained: why do they accept the Trans community?  Think about it. If you are gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, or queer those are human sexuality/lifestyle choices.  I dated a girl, and after we had broken up, she decided she liked both girls and boys, so she became bi-sexual. (Note to the weirdos out here: I understand it meant she discovered her sexuality but still my point stands.)  I also know a friend who decided she was only into girls (lesbian) after seeing a movie where Jennifer Aniston got completely naked.  (Contributors to this blog have a much different reaction to seeing Jennifer in the buff.)

Friends of our family have gotten divorced and decided they too preferred same sex relationships as opposed to traditional relationships.  In all of these cases while it was not always taboo, most forget we banned gay marriage as a state in 2008; nevertheless, acceptance has become far more prevalent today. 

I understand full well why those groups are all accepted into the LGBQ crowds, it’s a matter of sexual preference.  Note: many at the blog have lifestyle issues with these folks, but do not see them as disruptive to civilized society.  The Nine in Black Robes made it the law of the land and we chose to accept it.  No hate is needed here.

However, one group who in my opinion pigeonholed themselves into that crew who is doing heavy damage to our society: The transgender crowd.

Trans folks have a very different set of circumstances than the rest of the rainbow crowd.  This is not about sexual preference or attraction, this is about making yourself into a real-life science project, one where undoing it may be impossible.

In the case of the folks that I mentioned above that changed their sexual identity or attraction, their circumstances were different; however, trans folks are cut from a much different cloth.  No one I know who is LBGQ has openly advocated for folks coming out who are not in fact LBGQ.  The “T” crowd is doing exactly that.  Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner started all of this, and Fox News gave it a place to spew their filth unchecked.  It has since taken off like wildfire.  The trust the science crowd from Covid fame are just as guilty here.

Folks who become transgendered are mutilating God’s creation. If you refuse to believe in God, fine… your birth parents can get credit for your creation.  As a baby develops, its body creates its own chemicals and biological functions based on genetic information programmed into its very being at conception.  Adding care, nutrition, and time will follow the genetic code. Gender is determined for you before you are ever born. In what crude world would someone try to stop testosterone or estrogen from being created?  Or worse yet, chemically reverse it?  These are the questions no one is asking this crowd.  I’m sorry but having someone put a dress on or a halter top does not make them a girl.  Like I said this is nothing but a science project.

I’ll back up a minute.

Say a young boy decides, likely via his “friends,” that he is really a girl.  Perhaps he buys some sex toys, follows some unorthodox people on Instagram or Only Fans, and is stunned at how dirty old men/perverted women will “pay/tip” to watch a show.  Soon he goes deeper down the rabbit hole and starts buying girl’s clothing.  He buys a wig, and heels and now he has a full-on persona of a female.  There is still a problem, He is not satisfied with mere cosplay. His body knows he is a boy, even if he has a problem with that mentally and/or emotionally. Somewhere in all this confusion, he still feels he is not good enough. He is convinced by others that taking chemicals to alter his body into thinking it’s a girl will fill the emptiness inside. He gets a prescription from a local baby killing factory for hormone blockers. His body will now begin to grow female organs and he will be having the male ones diminished, suppressed via chemicals, or outright removed.  To further the change, he legally changes his name.  Now the transformation is basically complete even if there are a few details to iron out.

Now you let me ask you this.  Say this person who was in high school/college during this period gets closer to 40.  All his friends are married or seriously dating someone else, whether the same gender or opposite.  “She” now realizes that this gender switch isn’t what he thought it would be. Most of us have something that we did in our youth that we regret but very few of us pay as high a price as this unfortunate soul. Depending on the level of self-mutilation, there may not be any path to return to your former state. It’s too late.  The science likely won’t be available and if it is, likely won’t be covered for free like the initial change was.  The devastation will be so much, they likely will kill themselves.  Look it up, stats don’t lie, and suicide among this crowd is far higher than any other group…. by far.

Congrats to the crowd who is pushing this science project on families across the USA.  The devastation from this will be felt for generations to come.  It’s not science, its mutilation thru manipulation, we used to try to bring awareness to this in Africa, now we accept it.

I feel at some point, the LBGQ group will wise up and get this crowd out of their inner circle.

One of those things isn’t like the others.

How Joe Biden Can Win in 2024

Can Joe Biden win re-election?  Absolutely he can.  It will not be easy, and won’t be fun, but he absolutely can.  I will explain how.

Do everything possible to not have in person debates: 

This is easy, have one of Biden’s inner circle get Covid just before the debate.  This allows the debate to be remote and allows Biden to have his handlers hold up cue cards or the like to help him navigate the debate.  I know this sounds harsh for ole Joe, but he is very obviously in declining health, so much so even his fellow Dems are saying he should step aside.  It only takes one slip up (answering the wrong question, rambling, telling odd stories, staring into the abyss or wondering off set) to erode his support for good.  The perception of being too old won’t sink him, reality will, and his handlers know this.

Make the election about Donald Trump:

Simply put Joe doesn’t have much to run on; the economy is teetering; layoffs are being considered/happening and globally some think WW3 could happen any day.  As a result, he must make it all about Trump.  Insurrection, wanting to overturn an election, and the general chaos that is Trump needs to be front and center all the time.  Remember this folks, Trump is to Democrats what the Clinton’s are to the GOP, essentially the anti-Christ.  The mention of Trump will drive Democrat turnout. 

Make the 3rd party candidates, 3rd party candidates: 

Simply put, RFK cannot be getting anywhere near 17% in the general.  No way.  If he does, Trump will have a really great night.  Every vote for Jill Stein, RFK, or Cornell West is a vote taken from Joe Biden.  Joe must shore up this flank and knock the support for each to around 1-3% RFK included.  Note:  neither William or any of the blog staff see a candidate getting 17% who isn’t a major party one.  We see RFK topping at around 5-7% nationwide on election night.

Point out Trump is in no-man’s land: 

Each time Trump comes out with an idea I would immediately question how it would get done.  Simply put, his Party doesn’t like him.  Most in our opinion wanted him to never get elected so they could “own the issue” not the solution…. Healthcare ring a bell?  Trump will be a lame duck, and quite frankly will likely have very small majorities/minorities in both Houses of Congress.  He will need to “twist the arms” of his own just to try to shepherd legislation through.  If the Democrats win the House, I would say more impeachment inquiries will happen.  I would be pointing out constantly that Trump has no support from his own Party, and tepid at best support from moderate Democrats.  We do not know who his VP pick will be, and frankly he pretty much fired his entire cabinet at one point in time or another during this first term.

So, there you kind of have it.  Biden can absolutely win; it may not be easy or fun.  However, I will tease my next blog…. I do not think Joe Biden or Kamala Harris will be on the ticket.

How Manchin Retiring affects Sleepy Joe

Note:  This blog is a direct reflection on William pointing out Senator Joe Manchin retired after I sent my blog to him yesterday.

Kind of a weird retirement announcement yesterday from Joe Manchin am I right?  Manchin who I best describe as a centrist, more of a watered-down Democrat announced he was retiring.  At age 76 he is pretty young in political years.  All in all, he likely would have lost re-election, current governor, former Democrat Jim Justice is running, and he likely beats Manchin by decent numbers.  However, Alex Mooney a congressman, hard right Trump supporter is also running.  I do not think Mooney a carpetbagger who moved from Maryland to win a congress seat beats Manchin.  Manchin despite being a democrat is very popular in dark red West Virginia. 

The weirdness about Manchin’s announcement?  He made a reference to traveling around the US and spreading his political message.

What I will be doing is traveling the country and speaking out to see whether there is an interest in creating a movement to mobilize the middle and bring Americans together

If you are wondering, there is a group called “No Labels” who for months has been laying the groundwork to try to field just that…. a bi-partisan ticket for the presidential race.  Manchin is the perfect person to top that ticket.  He is personable, likeable and spews common sense.  No one at this blog would vote for him, however. 

This creates another headache for Joseph Robinette Biden Jr.  Machin will be very popular in certain parts of the country (think Midwest and some parts of the southwest and south), running a centrist campaign with some decent sized donors behind them.  My understanding is “No Labels” has qualified to be on the ballot in several states already.

This is from an August 2023 press release but here are the states so far:  The ten states are: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, South Dakota and Utah.

Spotlight Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina as 5 definite swing states based on recent elections.  I have a feeling far more states are to come. No Labels is not forthcoming about their progress on getting on the ballots of various states, but they maintain they are adequately funded to meet their goals.

Think about this, Manchin will need a running mate.  This brings another interesting couple of names up for speculation.

Mitt Romney, he also a soon to be former Senator.  His retirement is also due to kind of dubious reasons.  Romney hates Trump and is a “middle road” moderate type with no future in the GOP.

Kirstin Sinema, the current, no longer Democrat, Senator from Arizona is another option.  She also has no chance of being re-elected as an Independent.  Sinema, a former Democrat, could be a tough sell as a running mate with Manchin.  In a sense it will look like a spoiler ticket to hand the election to Trump.

Romney comes with the baggage that no Trump supporter will flip to this ticket. People in the Romney crowd are either solidly in the Biden camp or supporting RFK.

No one knows what will happen but let me lay out a nightmare scenario for Joe Robinette Biden and his crew.

Assume these following tickets nominate someone in all 50 states.

GOP:                                                     Trump
Democrat:                                           Biden
Independent:                                    Robert Kennedy jr.
Also Independent:                          Cornell West (He is the socialist type, weirdo black guy)
Green                                                   Jill Stein (2020 nominee)
Libertarian                                          There will be a nominee here
No Labels                                            Manchin/Romney/Sinema/Someone else?

The problem above is outside of the Libertarian and maybe RFK, no other party will draw votes from Trump.  The Green will suck maybe 1% from Joe in states that matter.  No Labels could very well take 2-4% pending the ticket and each state they run in.  RFK, as we detailed, will take roughly the same, again pending the states he is running in.  Cornell West is pulling the 1% insane folks vote nationwide. 

Therein lies the issue.  It gets more complex with No Labels likely fielding a ticket in quite a few states.  If Manchin is their guy, how many votes does he steal in Pennsylvania?  Virginia?  North Carolina?  If Sinema is on the ticket, how many from Arizona?  Colorado?  Romney is another wild card, as he will likely be stealing Biden votes in EVERY STATE.

Like I blogged yesterday, none of these third parties win, but how much does the race change?  Biden is looking at his “soft” support ceiling cracking little by little each passing day. I don’t expect significant Biden support to go to Trump, but I can see a number of people abandoning Biden for someone shiny and new. As a result, look for Dems to play hardball by deploying any gimmicks and dirty tricks at their disposal to try thwarting No Labels from fielding candidates.

Last note:  Manchin may also be angling for an Exxon Mobil Board seat as he was the top beneficiary of their donations over the years, and he, via his family, owns a gas company. If he is genuinely finished with politics, this would be a logical move.

My Thoughts on Israel/Hamas

What the Hamas terror group did is horrific.  I use the present tense because they are still holding/torturing hostages, American citizens included.  No matter your political or religious beliefs cutting people’s heads off, killing babies, and torturing people is wrong. 

As a sidebar, I do not agree with Israel cutting off the water and power supply to Gaza.  As I will explain later, this helps create a narrative that Israel is committing war crimes as well.

The dirty little secret in that part of the world (Middle East), I trust nothing that comes out of there as far as news goes.  Pretty much every country over there double deals and values their own interests/religion over anyone else’s.  Israel is our only true ally in that space. I say that in a literal sense because Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, and Bahrain typically have been found to be pretty weak allies of ours depending on the enemy.  Sure, we have a large air base in Qatar, I’m sure we likely pay a heavy price in dollars to have it there.  Yes, Egypt and Jordan seem to come down on our side when it comes to Israel and not letting Gaza refugees cross their borders. Oh, Egypt is allowing us to use the Suez Canal; at least for now, but again at what cost?  Don’t believe me?  Check out the foreign aid sent to these countries each year! 

In addition, many countries in that region are aligned with China, Russia, and North Korea, three countries who either legit hate us (Russia and North Korea) or have no real use for us in this conflict (China).  They love nothing more than to see our military spread even further.  Think about it, Russia knows we would prefer to supply Israel than Ukraine, so they win on that front.  China wants Taiwan, and us moving our carrier strike groups that way lessens our ability to help Taiwan.  North Korea?  Well, they get to taunt us even more.  Add Iran, Yemen, Lebanon, and Afghanistan to that list as well, who are actively supporting the Hamas, Hezbollah, and Houthi terror groups in that area.  Groups who hate Israel. The Mid-east is a web of competing interests that are being united in their opposition to Israel and the United States.

Add a wild card, Turkey.  Turkey is the 2nd biggest army in NATO (ally of ours) in the region.  They have been very vocal about us sending all those aircraft carriers, destroyers, and cruisers to the area. 

Turkey is correct about wondering aloud why we are sending all those ships.  It does from afar look like a provocation.  While I do not agree with Turkey’s president about us/Israel committing genocide, and completely disagree with him saying Hamas is a liberation group, I do think he misspoke.  One thing about Turkey they have the ears/eyes of both sides all over this region.  They have open dialogues with Russia, while supplying Ukraine with drones.  They are also in talks with Israel, while being able to speak to Hamas.  I know he cancelled his trip to Israel this week, but he wants to negotiate a peace deal.  I believe him.

Back to the war.

Israel needed to strike back at Hamas, they always do.  Most of the time they strike back 3-4x harder.  However, this time it’s different.  The killing of innocent people at a concert, beheading babies, old people, taking hostages, torture is a horse of a different color.  Israel is going to militarily attack the Gaza strip.  They want to wipe Hamas off the globe.  They have had enough. 

What is happening now is the cause of dividing the world in that region.  Jordan and Egypt say no refugees are welcome from Gaza.  This is because they don’t want the terrorists firing from their countries because this pisses off the USA and next thing you know Israel is lobbing rockets into their countries.  Turkey is warning us to back off the ships we sent into that area.  Iran backed terror groups are firing missiles/drones at our bases in Syria and Iraq, so far, we know 21 military folks have been injured.  Iran, Yemen, and North Korea are going to supply Israel’s adversaries with all they need for this war. 

The heart of the problem here is that Israel has no allies in the area.  Egypt and Jordan merely tolerate them.  All the Muslim countries basically hate them, they are in affect isolated. 

Enter Lindsey Graham, Joe Biden, and the globalists. 

So, we started sending our military might to this area.  The ships are already there.  Our bases in Syria (I do not understand this at all) and Iraq are getting more troops.  We supposedly activated 2,000 troops; I believe this is closer to 20,000, but I digress.  Our meager involvement thus far has evoked a response of laughter from the world.  Israel basically told us F-off.  Iran, North Korea, and Russia are daring us to do something stupid.  The terror groups love this.  Turkey is now likely questioning its role in NATO and all for what?  No one respects us anymore because we are not a superpower.  Our military cares more about pronouns and vaccines than training.  It’s sad.

My solution?

Hard to say.  Israel seems hell bent on going in with tanks and troops and “cleansing Hamas off the earth.”  If they want to do it, I say go for it, but with caution.  There is a reason I think Turkey has ratcheted up the rhetoric.  The area is unstable and is likely going to turn into a powder keg if the tanks move into the Gaza strip.  Put simply, if Israel moves in, I think Iran and their terror friends turn Israel into a microwave.  It will get really ugly, really quick.  Knowing the USA, we will somehow get ourselves right in the middle and WW3 will break out.  We will find out who our friends are, and I think more people dislike Israel than like us. 

Simply put, we shouldn’t be operating in that region.  Haven’t we lost enough young people already?  Also, at what stage do we have to worry about our own stockpiles?  We have given a ton to Ukraine and Israel.  Let Turkey decide on a solution in that area.  They do not want missiles flying over their country.  Dirty little secret is the other oil producing states don’t want that either.

My Thoughts on Kevin McCarthy’s Removal as Speaker

There is a saying in life, don’t let a group of whackos hijack the group you belong to.  Well maybe not, but there ought to be. Anyway, I said it.  Well, what happened this past week in the GOP House Caucus is exactly what that saying of mine is all about.  The House Democrats and 8, yes 8, Republicans voted to vacate the Chair of the House, removing Kevin McCarthy as Speaker.

First some background and commentary.

I do not like Kevin McCarthy one bit.  He is a snake and is an embodiment of all things wrong with the GOP.  He loves to talk tough in person or with small groups, you know the sayings, quoting Reagan or at least claiming his legacy, saying no one is more conservative than he is, cut budget, reduce debt, etc.  He votes the opposite.  EVERY DAMN TIME.  Then he goes on Hannity, Limbaugh (Rip), Levin, or any other GOP based show, and waxes poetic about how he made a great deal and how the GOP won the negotiations; when in fact, we lost. (can you say unilateral capitulation?) McCarthy has done this his entire political career; he is a former Assemblymen from CA.  McCarthy, despite his faults, has some things going for him. He is telegenic and can give a good speech, but that’s about it for the positive side.  He also has a documented history of chasing skirts, and to me a more disturbing one, his “hospitality suites” at state GOP conventions seemed geared toward very “young republicans” like as in high school age kids. 

However, what happened to McCarthy ever since the GOP took over the House last election is not right.  Kevin is a very big fundraiser and helps the party win and defend seats in every cycle.  He helped chair “Young Guns” which was a recruitment device to recruit and help younger GOP types run and win races nationwide.  He is/was very good at that.  With his aid, we took back the House last cycle.  Albeit only by about 8 seats. I do not blame that showing on him, I blame Donald J Trump.  Then we had a vote-a-rama as I call it to elect a Speaker; keep in mind there was no actual competition for the speakership.  I believe it lasted about 2 weeks, having an ungodly number of votes.  McCarthy finally won.  Matt Gaetz was leading this rebellion, more on him later.

So, we removed the Speaker, now what?  Well, I really do not know.  (Neither did they when they voted.) Steve Scalise and Jim Jordan have thrown their names in.  Scalise is battling blood cancer so he may not be the best choice.  Jordan is a good one, but I feel he is better used as an attack dog on committees.  Think Paul Ryan, much better as budget committee chair than Speaker.

As far as Matt Gaetz?  What the hell is wrong with you?  I guess what you have going is you are from a very red district (I think DeSantis’ old seat) so he is basically furniture, he is going nowhere.  I guess he and McCarthy had a rivalry, with McCarthy filing an ethics complaint against him.  I guess Gaetz won the battle, McCarthy was removed, again by 8 GOP, and the entire Democrat caucus.  Seems like a pyric victory, something the CAGOP loves.  Gaetz for his part, I hear, really loves the college interns in the Capitol.   So, he and McCarthy do share common ground, preying on young women.  Frankly, if I were Gaetz, I would just call Boebert; she seems game to drop her panties at moment’s notice as witnessed with her “date.”  While some will mention Gaetz is married, that has hardly stopped some in the past.

In closing I will say this.  I do not like McCarthy. I feel he is a CAGOP guy to the core, a go along to get along Republican.  He is more concerned with “owning an issue” than doing anything about it.  Think Repeal and Replace of Obamacare.  It’s better to fundraise off an issue than do anything about it.  McCarthy was the wrong choice for Speaker, it happens.  He is no leader, he is a go along to get along guy, the worst part about him is he will follow up a bad performance by going on Fox to try to brandish his credentials.  Now we have a mess on our hands.

In short congress under McCarthy as Speaker looked like the CAGOP I have known my adult life.

Benevolent King Gavin Newsom Raises Wage for Fast Food*

Loyal readers, the blog still maintains a co-headquarters here in the People’s Republic of California.  We are unsure of where Troll lays his head at night, but we know for a fact it is not near; Hope Hicks, Lolo Jones, Alex Morgan, Hope Solo, or any other of his pop tarts or flavors of the month.  That being said, our benevolent King Gavin Newsom signed into law a bill giving fast food workers a raise to $20 an hour in April of next year.  You may be wondering about the asterisk (aka star) above in the title … well check out this dudelet buried in the bill he signed.

Workers at restaurants like Panera Bread won’t receive the wage increase because the new law doesn’t recognize places that operate “a bakery that produces for sale on the establishment’s premises bread,” as fast-food.

California law to increase minimum wage for fast-food workers won’t apply to everyone

“This exemption applies only where the establishment produces for sale bread as a stand-alone menu item and does not apply if the bread is available for sale solely as part of another menu item,” the law’s text said.

Hmm, kinda sounds like lobbyist picking winners and losers am I right?  Let’s hear what our benevolent king had to say about it.

Why the line was drawn at bread remains unclear.

“That’s part of the sausage-making,” Gov. Gavin Newsom said during a news conference when asked about the exemption, Insider reported

Gavin, to borrow a line from Troll, knows a lot about sausage as he represents an area famous for how they use them!

In all seriousness, this bill was opposed big time by lots of groups, mostly big business, but I think folks need to understand while fast food has seen a lot of consolidation, there are still a bunch owned by minorities who only own a couple shops.  If I have to pay $20 an hour, do I find a way to fire a couple of people?  You cannot really automate … yet.  How does this help people?  Landlords will just raise rent higher, prices of fast food will go up big time.  Anyone want to bet that next year in May a Big Mac, Fries, and Coke is about $22.50?  The dollar menu becomes the $5 menu?  Fast food is looked at by most as a convenience and cheap, not healthy.  Gavin is removing the cheap part.

Folks, fast food has its place. Employees working there also have their place.  To most it’s a starter job, make a little scratch during college breaks, get work experience, rise through the ranks and be a manger after 5 years.  Then you move on.  It’s a decent resume builder.  For others, it’s all they have, but that’s likely because of decisions they have made.  High school dropouts, criminal records, yeah you work their long term because you have too.  To all the people working at fast food, it is not a career.

Kinda weird they drew Panera Bread out of this law.  Really weird.  I would rather work at Panera than any fast food joint sans In-N-Out or Chick-fil-A.  I mean folks if you have children working, like a first job, they now will make more $$ at Burger King than Panera Bread.  Think about it.

Liberalism is a brain disease.  This moron Gavin thinks giving folks $20 an hour will magically fix poverty … it will not.  It just creates higher rent and other expenses for food.  It also expands a permanently unemployed class of folks.  Business will always find a way. No one is paying $25 for a burger, fries and a Coke. 

So, there you have it folks … get a career at Burger King and Have it Your Way.  Yikes.

How Trump Will Beat Himself

One theme that all the editorial staff can agree on here at the blog is Donald Trump’s biggest enemy is himself.  The man has been indicted several times, been blamed for starting a riot on January 6th, but nothing seems to stick.  He literally might be made of Teflon!

Check out this wild statement by Trump on abortion.

In just the last week, Donald Trump called Florida’s six-week abortion ban “terrible,” refused to endorse national restrictions, blamed abortion opponents for Republicans’ 2022 election disappointments and pledged to compromise with Democrats on the issue if elected.

Trump steamrolls anti-abortion groups

This is a pretty wild about face.  Coming from a man who “stacked” (Democrat’s words not ours) the Supreme Court with religious conservatives.  As we have documented on this blog, Trump is very much to blame for 2022 election failures.  As far as compromise with Democrats on this issue … why?  There are very few Democrats left who have center-right views on abortion, most are happy with abortion moments prior to birth.

What has disappointed me most is Trump seems again to be trying to play both sides, similar to how he spoke about the stock market/economy during his term.

Trump’s attempt to have it both ways on the fraught issue — calling himself “the most pro-life president ever” and taking credit for the fall of Roe v. Wade while also shunning the priorities of the anti-abortion groups that helped elect him in 2016 — has exposed those groups’ struggle for relevance in a lopsided primary and highlighted ongoing divisions inside the movement.

This issue will hurt him in the general, not so much the primary as he is running away with it.  There are a few folks I know who are one issue voters, and will definitely stay home on election night if they feel unlisten too.  Make no mistake about it, you are either ok with abortion or against it, there really isn’t a middle ground.  As far as compromise goes … how so? A left leaning supreme court judge?

Here is another recent Trump quote that has me seething.

Former President Trump pledged to investigate Comcast, the parent company for NBC and MSNBC, if he is elected in 2024, saying it “will be thoroughly scrutinized for their knowingly dishonest and corrupt coverage of people, things, and events.”

“They are almost all dishonest and corrupt, but Comcast, with its one-side and vicious coverage by NBC NEWS, and in particular MSNBC, often and correctly referred to as MSDNC (Democrat National Committee!), should be investigated for its ‘Country Threatening Treason,” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post Sunday.

“I say up front, openly, and proudly, that when I WIN the Presidency of the United States, they and others of the LameStream Media will be thoroughly scrutinized for their knowingly dishonest and corrupt coverage of people, things, and events,” the former President wrote.

Trump also rehashed a phrase he has often used for news media in the past, calling it the “enemy of the people.”

“The Fake News Media should pay a big price for what they have done to our once great Country!” Trump added.

Trump pledges to investigate MSNBC parent company for ‘threatening treason’

I’m sorry folks and loyal readers if this is a turn off to you, but I hate the idea of weaponizing the levers of government against free speech.  I am no fan of Comcast Universal or their MSNBC news division, that doesn’t make it right to attack them.  This move is straight out of the Clinton/Obama/Biden playbook, I hate it.  What they are doing to Trump now with indictments is very wrong and is likely why he is running away with the nomination.  However, this is not Russia, China, or a Middle Eastern country where your political opponents get thrown into a gulag or never heard from again, this is America.  I’m sorry but this seems like Trump is morphing into a tyrant or dictator, and we do not need that.  Simply put, he is a lame duck if he wins and there is no telling what he could be capable of.

Bottom line, no Republican can beat Trump in the primary, he is out too far in front.  Secondly the Democrat’s indictments are coming back to bite them, as folks are seeing Donald as having to fight against the Democrats and the courts to win.  But if Donald has a worst enemy, its himself.  Yikes, that was a bad week folks.  Something tells me it will only get worse.  My best advice to the D team, leave Trump alone as he is likely to destroy himself.  Run those things above (abortion and news media comments) on TV ads round the clock, Donald will be cooked.

Editor’s Note: This was submitted while I was on a road trip and thus was posted late. I agree that Trump’s comments on pro-life people are stupid, wrong, and not helpful.

GOP Congresswoman Lauren Boebert is Trash

Yup I said it.  Her behavior at the performance of Beetlejuice was white trash.

First some background Lauren Boebert is a Republican Congress woman from Colorado.  She is very conservative, probably one of the most far right in Congress.  She is famous for being very attractive and she carries a gun.  She used to own a business where the wait staff openly carried as well, the business closed.  She is very outspoken about trans/LBGTQ and other issues.  The left views her as the anti-Christ.  She is a second term congress member, who barely won a second term in a very red district.  I predict she will be beaten in the primary or lose in the general this go round.

Check out her behavior a week ago at said Beetlejuice performance.

Michael Keaton–from the movie Beetlejuice

Two sources also confirmed to 9News that Boebert was vaping, a prohibited action that ushers attempted to address with her several times.

A pregnant woman reportedly confronted Boebert and asked the congresswoman to stop vaping, the New York Post reported. But Boebert refused.

Lauren Boebert says she ‘fell short of values’ after Beetlejuice groping video

I don’t give a crap about vaping, it’s not smart but if a pregnant women (or man, I’m based in CA so can’t assume gender) asks you to stop, stop.  But it gets far worse for Boebert.

The CCTV video also shows Boebert’s guest fondling her breasts after they had taken their seats. Boebert is also seen petting her guest’s crotch in the venue.

Wow.  I saw the video and it is that bad.  Looks like high school first gf/bf behavior.  He (her date, Boebert is freshly divorced) had his hand literally in a full cup over her breast.  If you didn’t see the video imagine her dates hand replacing her bra, it’s that bad, in public at a theatre no less.  As far as her grabbing his crotch, yep that looks bad too, almost appears she is trying to jerk him off.

Boebert and her date were later removed by security in the second act of the musical as their disruptive behavior continued.

The CCTV footage shows a blurred-out gesture that Boebert flashed at theater security as she was escorted out. Business Insider reported that the gesture appeared to be a middle finger.

Wow, the middle finger to security ejecting you after your “behavior” yikes.  But it gets even better, trust me.

According to a report of the confrontation from theater security, Boebert and her guest became argumentative with officials. “Do you know who I am?” the congresswoman allegedly asked, according to the theater security report.

“Do you know who I am” is classic mean girl/boy behavior.  She is exactly what is wrong with our country.  The rules don’t apply to her.  She, like most, thinks she is way more important than she is.  She should be setting a good example, instead yikes.  So, I guess she thinks having lewd behavior in public and vaping is ok?  Wild move.

Oh, it gets even better.

She is one of the most far-right representatives in Congress, widely known for bigoted statements she has made against LGBTQ+ people, Muslims and other marginalized communities.

A report from the Advocate, the LGBTQ+ news outlet, noted that the man who accompanied her to Beetlejuice was a Democrat named Quinn Gallagher who is the proprietor of a bar that has hosted LGBTQ+ events and drag performances, which have often been targets of the political right.

Yup she was out on a date with an owner of a bar who espouses the things she claims to be against.  While I don’t hate her for that it’s a bad look, optics aren’t great. 

Boebert apologized for her behavior in a Friday evening statement.

“The past few days have been difficult and humbling, and I’m truly sorry for the unwanted attention my Sunday evening in Denver has brought to the community,” Boebert, as reported by the Colorado Sun.

Boebert added that her “public and difficult divorce” has created a “challenging personal time for me and my entire family”.

“I’ve tried to handle it with strength and grace as best I can, but I simply fell short of my values on Sunday,” Boebert said.

In May, Boebert filed for divorce from her husband, Jayson, after a long marriage.

Falling short on her values in the understatement of the century.  Her divorce got to her, but her true colors came out.  Boebert should know better she is essentially public enemy number 1 of the left and the media.  When you are wanted like her you have to stay out of the limelight.

Parody site Babylon Bee hit her with: Lauren Boebert Attempts To Smooth Things Over With New Line Of Purity Rings

Here is a little bit of life advice folks.  Fellas if your girlfriend/wife is playing with your crotch in a public setting, aka anywhere outside of your home/bedroom, she is no prize.  Ladies, if your husband/boyfriend puts his hand over your breasts in public he is no prize.  This is white trash behavior out of both of them.  No one wants to see this type of behavior in public.  Honestly if you and your date are this horned up, get a hotel or find a bedroom and do the dirty, its gross.

I truly hope Boebert is able to get her life under control, the video and her actions that night make it appear she was under the influence of quite a bit of alcohol and/or drugs.  She blames her divorce, but folks a divorce does not give you the right to act the fool in public.  Frankly if I can be honest, the only thing missing from her escapades that night was her pulling her dates pants down and giving him a BJ right there in the theatre.

In closing Boebert did say she “fell short of her values” that might be the understatement of the century.

The Drunken Jedi Sentenced

Jorge Riley aka the “Drunken Jedi” was sentenced by Judge Amit Mehta to 18 months in prison for his role in the “Insurrection” on January 6th.  I use air quotes on insurrection because I do not think the Democrats, liberal Republicans or media types actually know the true definition of insurrection. 

As far as Riley’s sentence, color me shocked.  I was thinking 5-6 years in prison to be honest.  Mostly because Jorge filmed a lot of his antics, bragged about it online, and put things all over social media.  As far as I know, he is the only person arrested for his behavior on Jan 6th that claimed to be armed. Riley got one hell of a lifeline from this judge.  Judge Mehta is also hostile towards Donald Trump and his supporters, again I’m shocked Riley is getting only 18 months.

This may seem overtly mean and come off as sour grapes but sentences like this will never change a person.  I see a lot of my sister in Jorge.  They are one in the same; they never learn a lesson, so they don’t change their behavior.  Jorge quite literally had a backpack filled with vodka he sipped from a siphon at GOP meetings and conventions.  I cannot tell you how many times I was treated to the saying “Jesus loves you” at early morning hours at conventions with the stench of booze on his breath.  Many friends of mine who were officers at the functions allowed his behavior to continue.  He is paying for it now. 

The reality of the situation is Jorge never was a guy who made get out the vote calls, knocked on doors or did much to help the party at all.  I will never understand how he always got a pass from leadership.  Even more, they gave him a lifetime achievement award after he was released from jail.  The irony of that group.

Riley got a gift from the judge, compare the sentences of the leader of the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers.  They got decades in prison.  If I were Jorge, I would change my life.  I do not know how old Riley is but the book isn’t closed on his life, it’s just a series of bad chapters so far.  I know drugs/alcohol are prevalent in our prison system, I think it would be wise for Jorge to give up those vices.  I was always told he drank/drugged due to his PTSD from serving in the military, but during one of his hearings he admitted to having never left the USA.  So, what is causing this PTSD?  He obviously didn’t serve over seas.

In closing I will say this, I do not support the actions on January 6th, not one bit.  But it all could have been avoided.  Folks if you live in the Midwest or East Coast, you didn’t see what the blog staff here did.  In every single contested state, Biden would get out to a large lead, and eventually the result would be a Trump win by a couple.  Well around 11:00pm they announced that Detroit, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and other large cities would quit counting until morning.  Oh, the rural areas would keep counting, just not big cities.  When morning came suddenly Trump would be trailing by about 45,000 votes in each of those states, so basically the opposite effect happened.  Maybe Trump did lose fair and square, but let’s be honest; the optics don’t look great there.  It appears some sort of fraud likely occurred.  Again, if the counting continued, I would say he lost legitimately.

However, it does not excuse the behavior of January 6th.

Trans Rights =/= Parental Rights

Who wants to be a parent in California right now?  Anyone?  You in the back?  Oh, your hand wasn’t up.  Folks, the hardest job in the world right now in my humble opinion is to be a parent in California.

Here is my reasoning.

It used to be if you did anything out of line in school (I am talking daycare, elementary school, high school) your parents were notified.  Yup, you wet your pants, got bad grades, talked back etc. parents were notified, usually with a call from principal, or a note from teacher.  The results at home were never going to be good.  Usually, you prayed your parents would get you late, at least it would prolong the time prior to punishment. 

Those days are long gone.

California over the last decade has eroded parental notification in almost every sense of the word.  If you have a girl (biological female) she can have an abortion and you wouldn’t even be aware?  Oh, let’s go one step further, your child’s counselor can drive her to the abortion clinic and again, you would never even be told.  That’s not just the law, it’s in the state constitution.  If a teacher/admin notifies said parent, it’s termination.  You violated that minor person’s rights.  You get no due process.  Meanwhile you will never even know your girl had an abortion done.

Gets worse though, believe it or not.  Now your child will get to learn about sex-ed on steroids.  Yep, just check out the new books entered into the curriculum these past few years.  Now full-on sex is essentially taught.  Also, gay/lesbian sex as well.  Want multiple partners?  Not a problem.  Oh, by the way you cannot opt your child out of this?  Sorry, even if it’s a religious based reason.  Your child will learn that gay/lesbian sex and relationships are just fine, and you’re beliefs as a parent are bigoted.  Cool.  Maybe this is why at one of my mother’s charter schools (elementary) one student was caught performing oral sex on the opposite gender in a bathroom.  Did either party get in trouble?  Nope, because one student claimed their “parents would kill them” the school brushed it under the rug.  No one found out.  Yep, your child could have been on the receiving/giving end of this and you would never even find out.  Yep.

Could it get worse?  Yes, far worse.

Trans activists have gone even further.  It’s scary.  Not only is there a trans heavy curriculum; acceptance, and learning all the genders and pronouns, your child can even play dress up at school!  Yep, if your child decides they don’t want to be David, they would rather be Dana, the school will take care of that.  See after you drop off your child (elementary included btw) and your child tells a teacher/admin they identify as the opposite gender; they are led to a gender-neutral changing room.  Complete with clothing the opposite gender wears.  (Talk about lost and found.) They are free to play dress up.  Even better, the children return to the office prior to you picking them up and change back into the clothing you dropped them off in.  You never even know.  Your child is cosplaying the opposite gender and you will have no clue. 

Worse yet, did you know when your child is 18, they can/will go to Planned Parenthood and get a prescription for gender therapy drugs?  Yeah, and you again will not know.  They make the kid sign a CYA (cover your booty) disclosure document and poof; they get drugs to alter their sex/gender/look. Oh, under California law, all health insurers are required to pay for these gender bending children, but again it is illegal for you to be notified. After one year on the steroids, they can get their God-given organs cut off, again, thanks in part to mom and dad’s medical insurance. Aren’t you glad Obamacare allows them to be covered on your policy until age 26?

This above all can and will happen if your child just says they want to be a _____

My take on the issue is it is a sin and a crime to do this to a child, they are developing and have no idea about their identity yet.  Just because a child goes through mommy’s underwear drawer doesn’t mean they want to be a girl.  Heck even if child is in the men’s/women’s locker room/bathroom and sees a naked person of the same gender and doesn’t hate it doesn’t mean they are gay.  And to keep it from their parents?  WOW, just WOW. Then again, none of the above may apply, once a parent/teacher/authority figure manipulates a child to start down this road, it’s virtually illegal for them to turn back.

Oh, by the way, two school districts in CA have gone against the state mandate of not notifying parents, and CA Atty General Rob Bonta is suing them both.  Yep, we have our priorities straight, don’t we?  Reading, writing arithmetic (that’s math if you’re from Rio Linda) don’t matter.  But if you want to play dress up… by all means we will provide.

I blame Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner for this.  In my opinion this freak show took it mainstream.  Target decided to make their bathroom policy use whichever one you want.  Schools added pronoun education to their curriculum, and laws were put in place to stop corporations from terminating folks who were trans, making them a protected class.  Bathrooms have been mandated to be gender neutral at some locations. 

At my office our 2 gender specific bathrooms in the hallway were required to be changed.  By orders of the City, they even sent in a very large muscular man to make sure they knew they weren’t kidding.  If that wasn’t enough a $10,000 a day fine would be levied.  At the salsa bar they converted the men’s bathroom to a “family bathroom.”  By the way this likely runs completely contrary to the beliefs of the Hispanic family that owns/runs it.  But oh well.  Conform or be shut down.

The question we should be asking is why?  Why are we normalizing this behavior?  Why are we going behind parent’s backs?  Check out the suicide rate for transgender folks… it’ll blow your mind.  Do we know what these folks are truly injecting into their bodies?  Do we?  I think there are a lot of older adults who think it’s cute that children are making themselves into a real-life Mr. Potato Head.  But they never thought of the consequences.  You are not just wearing the opposite genders clothes, you are chemically changing your body, blocking certain hormones and adding others.  Your biological body was not supposed to be exposed to this kind of punishment.  This is the part that should be infuriating to a parent, because by the time you likely get around to finding out about your child, it is far too late. Under California law, a parent can go to jail and/or lose custody of said child if they object.

I want to ask you, if I am a biological boy and I choose after my 18th birthday that I want to be a girl, would you let me?  My answer would be ok, I guess, your body, your choice, and you are technically an adult.  I would be upset and hope my child would reconsider.  My point being, why is it ok for a pre-teen to wear girl’s panties, a skirt, and a short cut top and not let their parents know?  There is more to being a member of the opposite sex then wearing clothes, no matter if you tuck your package or put your fake tits on.

Still want to have kids in California?  Think long and hard, as it appears some in our schools want to play with your children.

Also, how in the world did we let a miniscule percentage, a fraction of 1% of the population become shot callers on this?  By God, we are screwed as a country.
