This morning on ‘Meet the Press,’ Chuck Toad interviewed Nancy Pelosi. She insisted that Franken and Conyers should be accorded ‘due process.’ This despite the fact that their sex offenses are relatively contemporary, well documented and self confessed. On the other hand, she persisted in referring to Roy Moore as a ‘child molester’ over and over. No due process for Moore. Not one interruption by Chuck Toad to point out that those are ‘allegations’ 40 years after the fact that he has denied. But then that’s how Democrats work. She uses the term 4 or 5 times – ‘child molester’ – uncorrected and unchallenged. Remember when Dirty Harry Reid ran around saying that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes in years during the 2012 campaign? When later confronted about this lie he said it didn’t matter because Obama won. Put a lie in peoples’ ears over and over and it has an effect on peoples’ thinking. That is the Democrat Party for you. Lie, lie and lie again. And it’s the same mantra of the alphabet networks.
Did you ever think about Superman? Here’s a guy who flies around Metropolis in blue tights, red underwear on the outside, red boots and a red cape. He also has a big red “S” on his chest. Why the big red “S”? Is it like there’s 50 guys flying around Metropolis in blue tights and a red cape and he needs the red “S” to distinguish him from the other 49? So Superman lands on a street and somebody says, “Who are you? Oh, wait, there’s a big red “S” on your chest. You’re Superman.”
Back in February, the New York City tourism agency said Trump’s “travel ban and related rhetoric” would mean a drop of 300,000 visitors in 2017. They now predict a 3.6% rise in tourism for this year.
Finance expert Steve Rattner predicted “a market crash of historic proportions” under President Trump. Moody’s warned of a “weaker” economy. Other doomsayers included Mark Cuban, Andrew Ross Sorkin, Bridgewater Associates and Macroeconomic Advisers. A number of economists predicted that growth would not exceed 2%.
Nobel-winning economist Paul Krugman demonstrated his lack of aversion to lying by predicting before the election that Trump would bring “a global recession, with no end in sight.” Shortly after the election he apparently got some new tea leaves as he back tracked on his doomsday predictions. Think ye that mayhaps his previous predictions may have been only for political purposes?
The Dow has climbed more than 25 percent since the election and the first two full quarters of Trump’s term both saw growth of 3 percent or more.
More recently, Trump’s cutbacks to help for folks signing up for ObamaCare brought warnings that enrollment would surely plummet. The first few days of open enrollment this year, however, saw a record number of people sign up.
Despite all the crying and moaning from the Left about fascism and tyranny, Trump has scrupulously obeyed the law. This, even with obstruction by judges who came up with senseless legal theories to block Trump’s “travel ban” executive orders.
This does not preclude the possibility of bad news for the economy or ObamaCare in the future, but it does demonstrate that predictions of Armageddon at the hands of Donald Trump were … well … trumped up with lies by agents and agencies that were supposedly providing “unbiased” analysis.
On Christmas, 2009, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab planned to board a jumbo jet with 2.6 ounces of explosive secreted in his underpants. The fact that he had been wearing the briefs for 3 consecutive weeks was a contributing factor in his interception by authorities. But I digress.
The issue at hand is the continuing efforts of Muslim extremists to terrorize Americans however possible. In light of this we must remember that the enemy learns from its failures. Training would be suicide bombers to only wear their weaponized skivvies the day of the intended attack is only one aspect of their effort.
Furthermore, disturbing reports from American intel sources reveal that mid-east terrorist operatives are developing a new generation of weaponized underwear utilizing so-called “high capacity’ underpants. Boxer briefs and boxer underpants are being developed that can carry as much as 7 ounces of explosive material. Possible development of an even more powerful device in the form of long underwear could deliver more than 20 ounces of deadly explosives.
Based on this information it is imperative that the public demand of our elected officials new laws banning the production of high capacity underpants. No reasonable person needs boxer briefs, boxers or long underwear. So the next time you hear someone say, “Boxers or briefs?” You make sure they know you stand for briefs. The NUA (National Underwear Association) must be held to account. This madness must stop!
“Lake Superior, they say, never gives up her dead, when the winds of November blow early.” – Gordon Lightfoot
Superior is quite different from the other Great Lakes. For one thing it does not sit on that hard dolostone basin I described earlier. Its local geology allowed the ice sheet of the last glacial maximum to scour out Superior to a depth of 1,300 feet, making it by far the deepest of the Great lakes. In fact, the bottom of Superior is the lowest point of the North American continent.
The five Great Lakes contain 20% of all the (unfrozen) fresh water in the world. So it’s probably a really a good idea to keep the Lakes clean.
