Andrew C. McCarthy: Why Trump is likely to be indicted by Manhattan US Attorney

Moreover, campaign finance infractions are often settled by payment of an administrative fine, not turned into felony prosecutions. To be sure, federal prosecutors in New York City have charged them as felonies before – most notably in 2014 against Dinesh D’Souza, whom Trump later pardoned.

In marked contrast, though, when it was discovered that Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign was guilty of violations involving nearly $2 million – an amount that dwarfs the $280,000 in Cohen’s case – the Obama Justice Department decided not to prosecute. Instead, the matter was quietly disposed of by a $375,000 fine by the Federal Election Commission.

Doesn’t that just speak volumes.  If you’re a darling of the Deep State/Elite/Status Quo then you’re punished with a fine.  If you rouse their ire then it’s jail time.

Who complains about the hypocrisy and injustice?  Only a few rotten eggs in that basket of deplorables.  Trump 2020.

Journalist claims ‘women-only’ plane sections could combat midair assault

I dream of a future in which there are women-only seating sections on planes.[bold added] Most women intuitively understand that the armrest is “neutral territory” and leave it as a slim buffer between them and their neighbor,” Whitehead writes.

LOL Wasn’t that pretty much the way it was before the Women’s Liberation started?  Jeez woman, make up your mind.

‘Don’t mess with Santa’: Man protesting Santa at Cleburne church arrested on trespassing charge

A 31-year-old man was arrested Saturday after he refused to stop protesting outside a church that was hosting a breakfast with Santa event, police said.

When officers arrived, they found three men demonstrating outside the church.

Heather Johnson said two men holding signs confronted her on her way into church and asked, “Do you let your kids believe in a fake Santa or do they know who Jesus is?”

Wow.  There’s a lot of craziness to unpack here.  First, why are they described as “protesting”?  Why not describe it as “harassing”?  If it were 3 miserable men standing off to one side jabbing protest signs in the air and chanting some stupid slogan then one could rightly describe them as protesting.  But getting up in peoples’ faces and confronting them crosses the line into harassment, especially when it’s just 3 people.

Second, do I have this right?  Some christians are outside a church “protesting” other christians who are having an event involving Santa Claus?  Jesus Christ, people.  That factionalism is ridiculous.

Then again, Crazy people who hate Santa Claus isn’t much of a news story.

Kyler Murray apologizes after old homophobic tweets surface hours after he wins Heisman Trophy

Murray shouldn’t have apologized.  He said what he said when he was 15, and what he said wasn’t horrible.  He didn’t tweet that he was going to rape some girl (or boy) and murder their family.  He called someone a queer.  Meh.

By apologizing, he’s just giving more power into the insane Left.  Don’t feed the beast.

HERITAGE FOUNDATION: “How Modern Liberals Think”

He’s on to something with his understanding of Liberalism (aka Progressivism) but he comes across as believing that what the US Government does is always right.  For example, he might be right about M. Moore’s methods and motivations, but the goal of stopping a war with Iraq was a good one.  That was an immoral war.

“The only way to eliminate bigotry is to eliminate rational thought.”

“In order to eliminate discrimination the modern Liberal has opted to become utterly indiscriminate.”

“[Once you succumb to the ideology of indiscriminateness, you believe]…good is evil and that evil is the victim of good.”

Macron Inspects Damage After ‘Yellow Vest’ Protests as France Weighs State of Emergency

Gasoline costs over $7.00/gallon in France now due to increased taxes related to fighting climate change.  Citizens are upset so they’re protesting the taxes.  Some of those protests are becoming violent.

From Killing Kennedy To Kremlin Collusion – Deep State Forced Out Of The Shadows

The intelligence agency fog both obscures and corrodes. An ever increasing number of Americans believe that a shadowy Deep State pulls the strings. Most major stories since World War II—Korea, Vietnam, Kennedy’s assassination, foreign coups, the 1960s student unrest, civil rights agitation, and civic disorder, Watergate, Iran-Contra, 9/11, domestic surveillance, and many more—have intelligence angles. However, determining what those angles are plunges you into the miasma perpetuated by the agencies and their media accomplices.

Nothing In Any Conspiracy Theory Is As Bad As What’s Being Done Out In The Open

Even if Mueller’s investigation did somehow prove that Trump colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election (and it won’t), that act would still have been far less horrible than the ongoing cold war escalations that this administration has been continually advancing against a nuclear superpower.

I would like to point out that Trump wanted to normalize relations with Russia, but the Russian Collusion accusation and general Russo-phobia being pushed by the elite establishment have backed Trump into a corner.  Any attempt to treat Russia decently is immediately raised as an example of Trump being Putin’s puppet.

If we could see with fresh eyes what is being done to us and our fellow man right out in the open, we would recoil and fall to the ground trembling in sheer terror.

Kid Rock Fired from Nashville Christmas Parade… But Plans to Show Up to Lead It Anyway

This should be interesting.  I support Kid Rock showing up.  He did nothing wrong except speak his mind, and what he said wasn’t that bad.  He called some tv celebrity a bitch.  Not the best word to use on live TV, but meh.

It’s a Trump Christmas

Obama 2013

  • a muppet is involved

Obama 2014

  • no muppets involved
  • black-centric
  • thanks the parks service

Obama 2015

  • a muppet is involved
  • all the kids gathered around are black (no wonder the blacks are upset and shouting “racism” at everything.  They’re no longer the center of attention.)
  • mentions Jesus Christ but then proceeds to relegate his teachings to the same as every other religion (camera cuts to a white woman looking somber)

Obama 2016

  • he talks about the parks service again

Trump 2017

Wait, what?  He didn’t say anything?  Maybe there’s more, but I can’t spend anymore time looking for a longer version.  I’ll update this section if I do.

Trump 2018

  • thanks the national parks service
  • mentions Christians as soon as he’s done with the generic thanks
