Flexibility – and Lots and LOTS of Collusion

…but it’s the Left again, so….

For over two years now, We the People have been endlessly, ridiculously subjected to the fact-free utter nonsense – that now-President Donald Trump colluded with the Russians to become now-President Donald Trump.

Former DNI Clapper: No Evidence Of Trump Collusion With Russia

Feinstein: No Evidence Of Russian Collusion With Trump Campaign

Woodward: No Evidence of Trump-Russia Collusion, I Searched Hard for Two Years

There Remains No Evidence Of Trump-Russia Collusion

This giant lie has been foisted upon us…to cover up the fact the Barack Obama Administration, the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and the Democrat National Committee combined to collude with Russia – in a failed effort to prevent now-President Donald Trump from becoming now-President Donald Trump.

Other Huge Contributors to Government Cronyism Waste? Laziness – and Attrition

The Government Bureaucrat Maxim

We oft highlight the very many massive examples of government cronyism:

“(P)rivate companies getting government – to craft policy that unfairly benefits the private companies.”

Once ensconced as awful government policy, cronyism grows all sorts of additional awful tentacles.

Two of the biggest, nastiest tentacles – are laziness and attrition.

Government bureaucrats – don’t behave like normal people.  For a panoply of reasons.  Importantly including my Wallet Rule:

If you go out on a Friday night with your wallet – and you go out the following Friday night with my wallet – on which Friday night are you going to have more fun? (more…)

Government Cronyism Should Be Opposed – Everywhere It Arises

A Hard No – Any and Everywhere

Cronyism: Is private companies getting government – to craft policy that benefits the private companies.

That cronyism can be an exemption for the crony from policy that adversely affects the briber’s competitors.  Or it can be policy that exclusively benefits the crony.  And it can, of course, be both.

We have of late covered quite a bit a huge federal government cronyism – the Defense Department’s bidding process for a $10 billion cloud computing contract.

Cronyism: Having Your Ex-Employees Award Government Contracts…:

“…makes it much more likely you’ll get government contracts.”

The Barack Obama Administration’s Defense Department (DoD) hired a bunch of ex-Amazon employees – who were then placed in charge of the DoD’s cloud computing bid process.  Shocker – the only company that met the contractor criterion crafted by Amazon’s ex-employees…was Amazon. (more…)

As with Most Things Internet –
the Choice is Binary

As anyone with an IQ above nine on a warm day knows – Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter censor anyone and anything to the Right of Karl Marx.

The Purge: YouTube Mass-Censors Conservatives, New Right, Classical Liberals

Former Facebook Workers: We Routinely Suppressed Conservative News

The Obamacare Health Insurance Tax: End it – Don’t Again Extend It

Over and Over and Over and…

Ex-President Bill Clinton is famous for at least three things.  His terrific treatment of women, his difficulty with the definition of very simple words – and his otherwise fluidity with the language when making up things…or pushing his pedestrian Leftism.

Clinton is of course a huge fan of racism – oops, I mean affirmative action.  Leftists LOVE it.  And he in the 1990s took to rhyme in its defense.

Affirmative Action: Mend It, Don’t End It

Of course, when something is truly awful, the only way to mend it – IS to end it.

You don’t mend a cancerous tumor (which any program based on race is) – you end it.

Speaking of cancerous tumors – we now turn our attention to Obamacare. (more…)

Let’s Aim Sanctions Somewhere Other Than at Our Feet

Ready…Aim…

There is a great deal of current DC fervor to sanction the daylight out of Saudi Arabia.  In response to the kingdom’s alleged assassination of alleged reporter Jamal Khashoggi.

I say “alleged reporter” – because Khashoggi ran for decades with some really bad Muslims.

Media Forgets to Mention Jamal Khashoggi was in the Muslim Brotherhood

Jamal Khashoggi was Osama Bin Laden Pal, Mourned His Death, Vouched for Terror Funder

I’m just saying Khashoggi may have been less journalist – more jihadist.

I say “alleged assassination” – because we don’t yet know for sure if Saudi Arabia did it.  (Though it is looking increasingly likely.)

Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) – is from all appearances effecting incremental reforms toward modernity.  Because incremental is all the Kingdom will take.

Damaging Islamist outfits like the Muslim Brotherhood – has to be a part of that process.  And this is the Arab World – they do things a little less daintily than do we. (more…)

We Extend Our Hand –

The domestic Left really doesn’t like America or Americans very much.

In fact, it’s quite reasonable to say the Left loathes America and Americans.

One Thing Way Worse than Too Much US Government? Too Much Chinese Government

The End of the World
as We Know It.
And I Feel Foul

We’ve said it many times before: Republican President Richard Nixon’s biggest mistake – was not Watergate.

Watergate is perhaps the most overrated political scandal in history.  It was a third-rate burglary of some Democrat National Committee offices – in the midst of an election in which Nixon…would ultimately win forty-nine states.

What – would Nixon have only won forty-three states without the break-in?

The Democrats’ first vice presidential nominee had to be yanked from the ticket mid-campaign – because he had been repeatedly institutionalized for mental illness.  This was not a juggernaut opposing slate.

The Watergate break-in – was utterly irrelevant to the election…and, actually, to our nation’s actual history.

No, Nixon’s biggest mistake – was opening the seething cauldron of snakes that is Communist China: (more…)

When the Punishment Doesn’t Fit the Crime – and Isn’t Even a Punishment

So Build a Bigger Jail

We the People are inordinately tired of watching criminal wrongdoing go unpunished.

It is a large part of what we understood – and what then-presidential candidate Donald Trump meant – when Trump politically coined the term “Drain the Swamp.”  Oft when Trump delivered this particular catch phrase – the crowd responded with “Lock Her Up.”

The “her” – being Trump’s opponent, Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.  A quintessential Swamp Creature.  Who has spent an inordinate amount of her adult life – in Swamp Creature fashion – breaking the law.  And none of her adult life – being punished for having spent an inordinate amount of her adult life breaking the law.  Also very Swamp Creature.

We the People find quite disquieting a world where bad deeds go unpunished. (more…)

Thank God: Another Awful Obama Legacy Item Getting a Trump Makeover

Trump Kids. He’s a Kidder

The Barack Obama Administration was awful for America, We the People – and the public policies that make the awfulness possible.  In ways and directions too numerous to count.

America is (allegedly, supposed to be) a free market economy.  To make it work – We the People need money.  Capital – to fuel the capitalism.

We are in the very early stages of the Information Age.  Where less and less things are physical – more and more are virtual.  As we transition from the tangible to the intangible – the protections of the intangible are of greater and greater import.

Stealing something digital – should be treated at least as harshly as stealing something physical.  Illegally downloading music – should be treated at least as harshly as stealing the same music on compact disc (CD).  Intellectual Property (IP) – is property.

If people don’t get paid to create – they will very quickly stop creating.  Because: Human nature.  No capital for capitalism?  No capitalism. (more…)
