Not a seesaw’s worth of Wagnerian fun, the Wagnerian debates.
But I’d love to see the presidential candidates ride the contraption!
Read my post here.
Straight from the horses’ mouths, a how-to on bussing illegals to vote,
In the second video of James O’Keefe’s new explosive series on the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign, Democratic party operatives tell us how to successfully commit voter fraud on a massive scale. Scott Foval, who has since been fired, admits that the Democrats have been rigging elections for fifty years.
I received a review copy of David E. Levine’s delightful new book, If You Give a Donkey the White House.
If You Give A Donkey the White House is a political satire in the style of the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie books that generated several others involving a moose, a pig, a cat, and a dog. Mr. Levine has four children, so I’m sure he’s memorized all of those.
The book description at Amazon says,
In this timely parody, readers young and old will either laugh or cry as they follow the story of a boy, a donkey, and unintended consequences.
I found If You Give A Donkey the White House funny, definitely timely, and spot-on. And a little bit chilling, considering the current state of things.
Democrats and liberals with no sense of humor will definitely not enjoy this book.
If You Give A Donkey the White House will make a perfect party favor at an election night party. Buy it for yourself, and buy for friends who are in need of levity!
I’ve been preoccupied with more immediate concerns, but even then this has struck me as emblematic of the stupidity of the current political climate:
The big issue is that 20 years ago Donald Trump told Alicia Machado she needed to lose weight after she gained sixty pounds while she was still Miss Universe.
Clearly, Hillary is going for the overweight female vote.
She’s definitely not going for the Hispanic vote. More on that below.
“You had somebody who basically insulted women and then doubled down,” Obama said in an interview on the “Steve Harvey Morning Show.”
The president added that the way Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, talks about women’s weight and looks “instead of the content of their character and their capabilities” means he “is not somebody that I want in the Oval Office.”
Let’s parse this:
somebody who basically insulted women
1. Why should women be insulted?
Alicia Machado does not represent me as an individual, much less as a woman.
The woman in question was under contractual obligation to remain in the same physical condition as she was when she got the job.
Alicia Machado went from 115 pounds to 170 pounds within a few months. At 5’7″ and 170lbs, she would be considered obese, and fighting obesity is a cause Michelle Obama has embraced.
2. You can argue that Trump “basically insulted” women but you can’t ignore the current rape allegations against Bill Clinton, and the Democrat presidential candidate’s role in suppressing and harassing the women who came forward.
talks about women’s weight and looks “instead of the content of their character and their capabilities”
So let’s look at the “content” of Alicia Machado’s character and capabilities:
Alicia Machado, after her term as Miss Universe,
By the way, what happened to the guy who first revealed the information on the christening party? He was killed while having lunch at a cafe prior to when he was scheduled to testify on the Beltrán Leyva case.
HOW’S THAT FOR “CONTENT OF HER CHARACTER,” OBAMA?
Which brings me to why this won’t get Hillary any Hispanic votes (other than Machado’s, who was granted U.S. citizenship earlier this year – how’s that for vetting?): A lot of Latinos follow celebrities, and Hillary couldn’t have found one more disreputable and generally disliked had she tried.
On the other hand, Alicia fits right in with the Clintons.

Trump is stupid enough he’s still carping on the Machado woman. How did our great nation end up with the two most unsuitable candidates for POTUS out of a population of 320 million people?
Let’s not ignore the one fact that even Politico begrudgingly acknowledged: the majority of Latino voters are English-speaking.
Is Hillary working for the Trump campaign? She’s given him a rallying cry and a theme song, for cryin’ out loud,
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

The Dems are worried enough by now they’re dragging up Jane Goodall comparing Trump to a chimpanzee,

It’s great being Hillary.
On consecutive days you read that she may need help clambering up the steps; that she can discuss Iranian scientists (who are later executed) on her unsecured emails while she was Secretary of State – while she allegedly overlapped her Clinton Foundation with her SoS job for fun and profit; that she can sit the father of the Orlando assassin in pride of place at her rally; and these stories parade like Olympians at the Rio opener, day after day.
Read all about it at my post, Hillary the daily scandal.
