A Week in Review


It's been quite a week and there is much to reflect on in the national news. Lawlessness in Washington DC plumbed new depths as the FBI whitewashed the Clinton criminality that we've all followed with some interest. 

I keep find myself muttering, "All pigs are equal but some are more equal than others," as FBI Director James Comey (a mind reader?) proclaimed that he stepped into the lying, conniving mind of Hillary Clinton and could find no sign of malicious intent. He spread a lot of mud on the FBI, whether intentionally or unintentionally. Can the FBI ever be trusted to do the right thing again? The proof of the pudding is in the eating. When Congressman Gowdy was done with Comey, it made the FBI look like the gang that couldn't shoot straight.

Finding a way forward as a nation will be increasingly difficult without a major overhaul in the "justice system" as we reflect on the insider moves by the Clintons in Phoenix and elsewhere.

Will America stomach the moribund Bureaucracy evidenced by the FBI in the future? There is clearly a segment of the nation that is uncomfortable with that. Will it propel Trump (not the most glib of candidates) to the White House? We'll see.

Barack has worked diligently to damage race relations in America ever since he took office and he's seen some significant progress this week in Dallas, Texas.

I heard champagne corks popping in the Oval Office as gunfire erupted in Texas claiming the lives of five police officers an injuring ten others.

Fox News showed scenes of black people celebrating the deaths of police officers, reminding me of scenes in Gaza and Damascus when terrorist hijackers flew aircraft into the World Trade Center.

Friday, Eric Dyson, presumably black himself, wrote this in the NY Times: "It is clear that you, white America, will never understand us. We are a nation of nearly 40 million black souls inside a nation of more than 320 million people. We don’t all think the same, feel the same, love, learn, live or even die the same." Isn't that a racist statement? No? Oh, yeah, how could id be if it's written by a black person. That's funny to me. I've seen black men die in combat next to white men and they died just the same while serving their country. Those police officers in Dallas all wore blue without regard to race didn't they? And if you ask any black person, there is a significant difference between a black man and a nigger. Oh, did I just write something politically incorrect?

Just before the incident, Barack and AG Lynch were condemning police shootings elsewhere in the country long before any investigation surrounding the circumstances are complete.  Tax Cheat Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson, both personal friends of Barack, showed up to whip up racial tension, claiming that police officers murdered black suspects. The problem is that as with many police shooting situations that the progressive movement has condemned, the investigations tend to show that the police officers acted reasonably. While that's not always the case, it's clearly the trend. I wonder if white people will riot in Dallas because black murderers killed police officers? Likely not.

At the same time, the much publicized death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore at the hands of police has turned out NOT to be a result of police maliciousness. The officers (including the black officer who drove the paddy wagon), whose lives have been ruined, are now bringing suit against the district attorney for malicious prosecution. I took note that the white people in Maryland have not rioted, murdered and looted at the disclosure that a 'racially motivated' legal action against the police proved to be salacious, incendiary and unjustified.

The progs disgust me.

It's been an interesting Independence Day week, hasn't it?

  1. I couldn't add a thing, LL. You aren't completely over your gloom, I see, and you skillfully describe the reason for mine. We're in a very precarious place right now. We are surrounded by betrayal: in our Capital, on our streets, in our press rags, on our blogs and sometimes in our very homes. When the gloom clears, I fear it will be only for vigorous watering of the tree of Liberty. Perhaps the tree of Justice, as well.

    1. I don't know that the gloom will clear anytime soon. Barack's relentless march to disarm America only makes it clear that they wish to arm the mob and disarm the honest and law abiding.

    2. If you're good with it, LL, I'd like to repost your review here. Thanks, in advance, for the good words.

    1. Yes, that's what it turns into, but they roll around in it and pronounce it perfume.

    2. Just like any dog that rolls around in strange smells.
      Sorry. Don't mean to insult real dogs.
      Be safe and have a blessed weekend.

    3. Real dogs are loyal and are said to be the 'only love that money can buy'. Progressives like Hillary don't have any endearing characteristics.

  3. On the way to my daughter's swim lessons this morning in Coppell (suburb of Dallas), I passed a police station where a group of women stood out front, praying in a circle, heads bowed, and a hand outstretched towards the building. The flag hung heavy at half-staff.
    A policeman stood at attention next to them, watching the passing traffic, guarding the women.

    Took me a good half hour to swallow that lump in my throat.

    What gets me is that these officers largely died because of sensationalist propaganda that boosts media ratings and ad sales. I'm sure their loved ones realize this, and they must feel utterly helpless. Who can fight the media machine?

    1. We all can fight the media machine by not feeding it. But it's larger than simply those progs. It's Barack and friends supporting the felons who the police shot in the line of duty that creates the feeling that black people are being unfairly targeted.

      I'm sorry that this happened and maybe it will have the unintended result of bringing people together?

    2. I fear Kipling was prophetic. In contrast to the made-for-TV histronics of those recently bereaved whose multiply-adjudicated-felon loved ones were lawfully shot while committing yet another violent crime, not everyone screams, shouts and postures to express their displeasure and wrath.

      Their voices were even and low.
      Their eyes were level and straight.
      There was neither sign nor show
      When the Saxon began to hate.


      How far along we are on that hating process I couldn't say, but I think more than a few are beyond the beginning, so to speak. This does not augur well for anyone.

    3. Kipling was profoundly prophetic. And we have (to quote Kipling), taken up the white man's burden and it's time to set that obligation aside.

      Take up the White Man’s burden—
      Send forth the best ye breed—
      Go send your sons to exile
      To serve your captives' need

    4. It augurs ill indeed, Mike. I don't see how this will end well, barring a miracle.

    5. Keep your sisters safe in the Dallas metroplex. There are entirely too many inner city people there for me to be comfortable with their security.

  4. Cynicism is flowing strongly today wondering how many of our fellow citizens actually give a flying @#$k about anything beyond their shallow lives? Have always thought of myself as something of sheepdog. Now, if you aren't kin or a child, best of luck to you.

    1. I still have that sheepdog nature but am sincerely planning to "go Galt", and set some of that inclination aside - much as you suggest.

  5. Words still fail me. We are seeing a progression of evil that, if unopposed, will sweep the nation's urban centers. The cities will continue to rot and fester as their democratic masters will do nothing to ameliorate the problems. As for the police, if Hillary is elected this garbage will move against the white suburbs. Be prepared, this will not go away under the present leadership.
