One can’t make this stuff up: “Why Obama’s half-brother says he’ll be voting for Donald Trump”
President Obama’s Kenyan half-brother wants to make America great again — so he’s voting for Donald Trump.
“I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart,” Malik Obama told The Post from his home in the rural village of Kogelo. “Make America Great Again is a great slogan. I would like to meet him.”
Obama, 58, a longtime Democrat, said his “deep disappointment” in his brother Barack’s administration has led him to recently switch allegiance to “the party of Lincoln.”

Mike Pence gets his new ride today:
Now, that is a class act. I wonder what they will raise Kaine in… 😀 ◄Dave►
This is delicious. Finally a BLM protest that makes good sense: “Some Black Lives Matter activists plan not to vote in November“:
Newsome is leading a new campaign to get African Americans to do something that few civil rights leaders have recommended: stop voting. He believes that only by withdrawing support from the major parties can black communities force politicians to address their concerns about police brutality.
He calls it “I Ain’t Voting” — and he says he’s aware that it could be seen as a rejection of the struggle that a previous generation went through.
“Before, we fought to have our right to vote,” he says. “But now we need to fight to have our right to vote mean something.” [Emphasis mine]
Brilliant! I wish him well. Read the rest of this entry »
I have watched as much of the RNC as my stomach can take without my dinner coming back up and I have little doubt that what we are watching is actually the Republican National Collapse.
Not that I would be sad to see either of the major duopoly parties go away but I can’t help but wonder if 4 to 8 years of president Hillary Clinton is not too steep a price to pay.
Several years ago, before Obama’s reelection, the great thinker Thomas Sowell opined that our Republic could not survive another Obama term. It seems we may have, although by the slightest of margins. (I am among those who think the ultimate reality of a given administration’s policies does not fully appear until several years after the fact.)
Having said that, I am fairly certain that there is no way our Republic can possibly survive even one Hillary term. Would there still be an entity known as the United States of America post Hillary? No doubt. Would it have any similarity to the Republic described in our Founding documents? Again, no doubt there would be none.
Aside from getting us into more unnecessary wars, as Hillary is bound to do, she will get to oversee the entire makeover of the Supreme Court – an action that will cause problems for generations. I have no doubt that the kind of people Hillary will appoint to the Court will quickly destroy what little is left of our Constitution. Hillary’s election will also prove that a person can violate any and all of our laws and still be awarded the best prize we, as a people, have to offer. That alone is cause enough to condemn our Republic. Read the rest of this entry »
There is nothing new about comparing Melania Trump with Michelle Obama:
…but I find it fascinating that instead of the early acrimony over the Republican convention rules yesterday, all the media is focusing on this morning is Melania’s speech. Invariably, these stories include comparative photos of these two giving their convention speeches. The visual contrast is nearly as striking as Garrison’s cartoon. Combined with the controversy over the plagiarism issue, anyone who did not see the speech last night, is probably highly motivated to go watch it today on YouTube.
Those who do, will likely be as charmed by this exquisite lady Read the rest of this entry »
We are back in Texas, having survived FreedomFest 2016 in Las Vegas. The overall experience was good and the best of it was wonderful. The best of the best was a speech by Andrew Napolitano. His presentation alone was worth the price of admission. Next best was a speech by Yaron Brook. No surprise there as we have heard Dr. Brook before and he is always right on.
Senator Rand Paul made a good speech of the sort that would have made his presidential candidacy much more viable than the teenage-like attempts at smart-mouth behavior he exhibited in the GOP debates. Ex Governors and Libertarian candidates Johnson and Weld made several appearances. While I support and will vote for Gov. Johnson, he comes off as way too laid back to attract the kind of attention needed to get his ball really rolling. And, were there ever a year and a circumstance for getting said ball rolling, this is the time and the situation.
As for Las Vegas itself, it is the most unnecessary creation of mankind that one could imagine. It is hotter than the gates of Hell, everything is grossly overpriced and the main attraction is the opportunity to give your hard earned money away playing “games” that are not even interesting. On the positive side, there is a lot of booby watching available (which I thoroughly enjoy despite being too old to remember why).

I made the mistake of turning on the TV tonight, for information regarding the horrific terrorist attack in Nice. Obviously, I am not the only one pissed off at the Jihadist barbarians, and our feckless politicians. First, Newt was on fire:
…and bluntly telling it like it is. Then, General Flynn Read the rest of this entry »
I can think of no other explanation for this unbelievably stupid behavior. Police body cams work, and here are two of them in action:
There are several versions of this on YouTube, which also include the speeding chase before the stop; but this one is the clearest of the actual shooting. What is that object on the ground by the truck door that can be seen after he was shot? Read the rest of this entry »
And Stephan Molyneux once again demonstrates that it is worth waiting for:
One minor clarification might be that a malfunctioning tail or stop light, is often referred to as a “broken tail light” in a traffic stop, even if it is just a burned out bulb and no outward physical damage is apparent. Read the rest of this entry »
Yes, there are some bad cops in America. By all indications, Jay Stalien is among the overwhelming number of good ones, trying to make sense of the increasing racial animosity and senseless violence in modern America. Before the PC freaks cause it to disappear, I have memorialized his entire Facebook post Read the rest of this entry »
