Trump plays Cruz like a fiddle – probably finishes Cruz’s career

Trump played Cruz like a fiddle? Fellow B-ville comrades  were texting back and forth. Would or wouldn’t Cruz come out and support Trump? NO. He didn’t. Finis we said. Now with the light of day, my hunch? Trump trumped him. You don’t come to someone’s party and not support the candidate. Turns out the organization knew that Cruz would not support him and there was Newt, waiting in the wings to soothe the breech of decorum. What say you?

Obama’s plagiarism was just merely inspiration

Funny isn’t it. Within an hour of Melanie Trump’s speech the media had determined that several paragraphs were the same as Mooch’s. It went on and on. This was a wife of a candidate that had created this mortal sin. But wind back not to a wife, but the Presidential candidate who plagiarized. The reaction? Not so much. Were we reminded of it? No. And so it goes.

When the Clinton campaign cried foul, The New York Times reported:

With the next round of voters set to weigh in on the Democratic presidential race, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign on Monday accused Senator Barack Obama of committing plagiarism in a weekend speech. Mr. Obama dismissed the charge as absurd and desperate.

Just Words. Just not Obama’s

Hillary Clinton tells NAACP the police must ‘Stop the killings of African-Americans

While Clinton Cable News and MSNBC are frothing at the mouth regarding the possibility a few sentences at last night’s GOP convention were lifted from Mooch, the hildebeast moves on dividing and trying to shore up her base, agitating in a despicable way. So while the foam is still forming in the media’s mouths, the evil one moves on unnoticed.  She channels her inner religious camp meeting presentation style.

Just a day after three police officers were targeted and killed by a Muslim black nationalist in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Hillary Clinton is demanding that it’s the police who stop the violence.

Clinton spoke to the NAACP Monday, saying that law enforcement must “root out” biases against black Americans and stop killing them.

“We will not rest until we root out implicit bias and stop the killings of African-Americans,” Clinton told the crowd in a preacher-like tone.

“Many African-Americans fear the police,” Clinton said as the crowd erupted in agreement. “I can hear you. Some of you in this room.”

“And today, there are people all across America, sick over what happened in Baton Rouge and in Dallas, but also fearful that the murders of police officers mean that final questions about police-community relations will go unanswered.”

Obama set to regulate wine coolers

While the mayhem continues, I thought this story exemplifies all that we are fighting for in regard to keeping American companies alive, and workers employed. Tens of thousands of these regs were promulgated during this administration, with faceless, nameless bureaucrats, costing jobs and business their ability to thrive. Oh, testing I am sure is just the first step. We must get the foot of government off the necks of small business who employ 60 percent of Americans.

Energy efficiency reg to cost small businesses $12,500 each.The agency said the $12,500 testing cost is “unlikely to represent a significant economic impact for small businesses.”

The Department of Energy now has a specific regulation for wine refrigerators.

The agency released a final rule Friday requiring manufacturers to test the energy efficiency of refrigerators used for wine. It estimated the rule would cost the average small business $12,500 to test whether their equipment meets specifications.

The regulation refers to the refrigerators as “coolers.” There was much discussion about the exact definition of the term in the final regulation, which spans 159 pages.

“[The Department of Energy] DOE proposed to define a ‘cooler’ as a cabinet, used with one or more doors, that has a source of refrigeration capable of operating on single-phase, alternating current and is capable of maintaining compartment temperatures either no lower than 39 °F, or in a range that extends no lower than 37 °F but at least as high as 60 °F,” according to the final rule. “The proposal also clarified that these compartment temperatures would be determined in a 90 °F ambient temperature.”

The agency decided to keep the phrase “used with one or more doors” because it was “clearer and more direct.”

“If a product is used with one or more doors, it would be considered a cooler regardless of the design intent,” the agency said. “Therefore, DOE is maintaining the language of ‘used with one or more doors’ in the cooler definition as well as the combination cooler refrigeration product category definitions established in this final rule.”

Paul Ryan out on the stump supporting Gang of Eight amnesty

Let Paul Ryan know that the only way for those to “get right with the law” is to leave the country. This is why the GOP represents none of the hard-working Americans who are tired of supporting all of the “tired, and poor.” Apparently he hasn’t gotten the message.

While discussing the new GOP agenda at a CNN town hall yesterday, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) repeated his support for a Gang of Eight type amnesty of offering work permits to illegal aliens currently living in the U.S.

“And then those people who need to get right with the law, give them a way to earn their way, through fines, through penalties, learn English, civics, reapply a policy of assimilation, so that they can get a work permit to work,” responded Speaker Ryan when asked about illegal immigration.

At the same time, he acknowledged that current immigration visa numbers hurt American workers. “I think we should give visas based on what the economy needs, so that we’re make sure people aren’t taking jobs that Americans can take, Americans can fill,” he continued.

This confirmation comes after the House, under Speaker Ryan’s leadership, passed last year’s omnibus bill that quadrupled the number H-2B visas and funded Pres. Obama’s DACA amnesty program and the president’s increase to the refugee resettlement program.

Obama – ‘Bathtub falls take more lives than Terrorism’

A much overlooked story that appeared in the Atlantic April 2016 issue, tells us more than we care to know about our Commander. The title The Atlantic’s April cover story,The Obama Doctrine”  Did anyone know there was a Doctrine? Considering the carnage that is going on, it is time to pay attention.  The man-child is revealed. I picked out a couple of hits.
“ISIS is not an existential threat to the United States. Climate change is a potential existential threat to the entire world if we don’t do something about it.”—President Obama

President Obama was recently interviewed by The Atlantic, where it was reported that the commander-in-chief “frequently reminds his staff that terrorism takes far fewer lives in America than handguns, car accidents, and falls in bathtubs do.”

That statement was taken by many to mean that the president believes the fear of terrorism is exaggerated, Chris Wallace noted. And bathtubs don’t try to kill people.

On Syria-

And the fact that I was about to pull back from the immediate pressures and think through in my own mind what was in America’s interest, not only with respect to Syria but also with respect to our democracy, was as tough a decision as I’ve made—and I believe ultimately it was the right decision to make.”

The move stunned U.S. allies and Obama’s cabinet and closest advisors. Goldberg reports that when Secretary of State John Kerry learned of the decision, he told a friend, “I just got fucked over.” Goldberg also reports that, over the last year, Kerry has repeatedly lobbied Obama to launch missiles at specific Assad regime targets in Syria, which Obama has steadfastly resisted. Goldberg reports: “Recently, when Kerry handed Obama a written outline of new steps to bring more pressure to bear on Assad, Obama said, ‘Oh, another proposal?’ …At a National Security Council meeting held at the Pentagon in December, Obama announced that no one except the secretary of defense should bring him proposals for military action.”

Of course here Obama blames……

On Europe’s responsibility for the “shitshow” of Libya:
Obama blames Great Britain and France, in part, for losing Libya (which he refers to privately as the “shitshow”). “When I go back and I ask myself what went wrong, there’s room for criticism, because I had more faith in the Europeans, given Libya’s proximity, being invested in the follow-up.”—President Obama
