This week, we invite you to speculate
 on the recent performance 
of two public figures

Attorney General 
Jeff Sessions

Silent-but-Deadly, or Weak and Ineffectual?


Senator John McCain

Does Hero to the Left equal Traitor to the Right?



... AND NOW THIS ...

If you don't get it, you ain't got it.

  3. Why are you wasting your time on this stuff, kid?

    Go back to the arts, poetry and music. Hell, get yourself an ant farm. Watching insects is more rewarding and comprehensible that attempting to analyze that den of thieves, scoundrels and pirates in DC!

    I love ya, kid, and I love your blog, but this is a waste of time.

      That statement is based upon the premise that ordinary people can do something about it.

      The DC Syndicate is impervious to the words and actions of ordinary citizens. It is demonstrating to us now it is impervious to election results.

    Senator McCain will continue to be a carping pain in everyone's ass. It is abundantly clear he is not going anywhere. His brain rotted decades ago. I am surprised there remained any matter for the cancer to cling to. The man is a walking pile of bile-fueled malignancy.

    Poor Jefferson Sessions is a cornered mouse wondering why he befriended the large tabby now twitching its tail and staring him down.

    Donald Trump has brought us the biggest, gaudiest reality show ever.

    1. Are you not willing to give Senator McCain ANY credit for getting out of what-may-very-well-turn-out-to-be his DEATH BED to travel all the way across the country in order to cast the deciding vote compelling the senate to begin formal DEBATE on this absurd, seemingly ill-fated "Healthcare bill?"

      Have you become SO cynical you are incapable of crediting him with any better motive than SELF-AGGRANDIZEMENT?

      I heard what he said to the senate, and was frankly impressed by his tone, which seemed more earnest, sincere and intelligent than anything else he's said in many years.

      Yes. I really have become "SO cynical you are incapable of crediting him with any better motive than SELF-AGGRANDIZEMENT."

      John McCain is a man of little accomplishment. He almost destroyed the carrier he was assigned to, he has accomplished little of merit in the Senate, and his singular heroic accomplishment was surviving six grueling years of torture at the hands of the North Vietnamese Communists.

    5. If we are incapable of giving credit where credit is due, "Doctor," we are incapable of rendering Sound Judgment on ANY issue.

      John McCain was, indeed, a mediocre student. I've read that he graduated at the bottom of his class at Annapolis, and his record of service while on active duty was undistinguished, [although I believe the act of flying combat missions from the deck of aircraft carrier takes extraordunary courage in and of itself and a great deal of expertise], but he did one EXTRAORDINARILY noble thing while he remained in captivity:

      He REFUSED EARLY RELEASE from POW CAMP when it was offered, because HE REGARDED THAT as UNFAIR to his FELLOW POWS.


      That ALONE distinguishes John McCain from ordinary men, and should forever COMMAND our RESPECT.

      I don't know you,"Doctor," but I seriously doubt that YOU would have what it takes to withstand FIVE YEARS of TORTURE in a place like the Hanoi Hilton. I know damned well that I would never have been able to pass such a test, so I thamk God every day that men like John McCain were willing to do it FOR me.



      That said, I would agree that his performance as a U.S. Senator has been erratic, enigmatic, and often infuriating. If you don't like it, howevewr, you must blame the citizens of the state of ARIZONA, because it is THEY who keep sending John McCain in power.

      FT wrote and posted about McCain just a couple of days ago:

      John McVain got his brain
      Washed in Commie Pee
      At Hanoi Hilton, and so he
      Came back to combat liberty ––
      To undermine and wreck what we
      Achieved to try to keep us free
      From encroaching tyranny,
      And so this hollowed out zombie
      Functions as our Enemy.

      McCain's heroism while in captivity, which I cited in my previous comment, is immaterial to his senatorial rantings and ravings.

    8. I disagree completely, "Doctor." To evaluate a person's character by giving more weight to his failings than to his good points does a great disservice to both Fairness AND Truth.

      As I've said repeatedly, I do not care for John McCain's overall performance as a legislator, but the only people who deserve blame for that are the VOTERS in Arizona. Apparently, THEY find him most satisfactory, and THEY are the ONLY ones who have the power to turn him out of office,

      Mr. FreeThinke, I assigned no weighted values to the different aspects of John McCain. Quite simply stated, his heroism in a prison camp has nothing to do with his performance as a senator.

      To argue otherwise would be to embrace the absurd notion that a Hollywood celebrity should be listened to when donning fake eyeglasses and expounding upon global warming, the glories of socialism or other such nonsense.

  5. Who Cares?

    The GOOP is self-immolating over how to stamp their own brand on a dicatorial statist program that proceeds from a flawed premise. I wish them all the worst. They are trapped, victims of their campaign lies.

    The GOOP will probably keep the senate, but they will lose the house. And you know what? It won't matter.

    The first mistake was Jeff Sessions recusing himself. President Trump's failure was sealed with the appointment of a special prosecutor and his merry band of Democrat activists casting their nets far and wide. They will find something. They will find something on Donald Trump.

    The combo of Sessions' recusal and appointing the special prosecutor essentially de-balls Justice, kicks them out of their own house, and locks the doors on them.

    Meanwhile other GOOPers, who the American People elected to be in charge are recusing themselves, Devin Nunes is tied up in knots by Democrats on the House Ethics Panel...

    American voters gave the GOOP all the power to rule DC, and six months later, they are de-pantsed, raped, robbed, crying and attacking one another.

    The GOOP is an embarrassment. Trump is a failure. The only good left in any of this outhouse fire is that Hillary isn't president.

    So, in summary, I do care, but watching the government and commenting on it is a waste of time. I'm with Jack on that one. Better to tune all that crap out and find a rewarding hobby.

    I really do wonder if God hates America.

    2. As you know, I am a big fan and avid reader of the Bible, but such responses are unhelpful.

      I am not in despair, neither for myself or my family. I have a great faith in God Almighty, and I believe in Him, and in Him my hope rests.

      DC has nothing to do with that--and although I don't accuse you of it--I'm worn out with people trying to justify politics or using religion to cloak political activity in Holiness or God's plan, or whatever.

    3. I disagree, but haven't the energy to engage in formal argument.

      Too often what we earnestly BELIEVE we are saying fails to be received by the reading public in the spirit in which it is offered.

      I know you are hardly that, but most of our readers are not so savvy, so I believe we need to aspire to a greater degree of temperance in our public expostulations.

      And Abraham Lincoln, –– Violator of the Constitution, Suspender of Habeas Corpus, Jailer of opposing voices, Flouter of the U.S. Supreme Court, and one of the great Destriyers and Mass Murderers in History ––, is the very LAST person from whom I would want to hear on the subject of godliness and moral rectitude.

    4. Regardless of what you think of Honest Abe, his quotation I cited should be enblazoned upon the heart of every God-fearing person.

      The GOOP is an embarrassing failure. They have amply demonstrated they cannot legislate and govern at the federal level.

      Special Prosecutors never wrap things up by telling everyone, "Well folks, we're wrapping it up. We found nothing."

      Special Prosecutors keep digging until they find something, anything. The went after President Clinton for an incident immaterial to the investigation.

      They fried Scooter Libby for making making contradictory statements that should have been chalked up to poor memory and not taking notes at the time. And then George Winter Warrior Bush wouldn't even pardon him.

      This is not rhetoric. Like my comment above, it is a fact-based opinion based upon observation and logical inference.

      Obviously, I have reached a different conclusion than you, but reasonable people can disagree, and do so in a friendly way.

      I hope I'm wrong, but I don't see any of this coming to a good end.

      Those who don't see it by now, never will.

      Apologies to AOW, but anyone waiting for the denouement--when President Trump's brilliant cliff-hanger strategy finally bears fruit and the trap door opens beneath all his enemies--will end up disappointed.

      Mueller will come out waving documents having to do with alleged lawbreaking by Donald Trump in his business dealings prior to winning the presidency.

      What do you make of this: Did Congress Just Hand Sessions Everything He Needs?

      Excerpt:

      video is preset to begin with Gaetz's statement beginning at 6:59:27 and continues through to 7:03:00 and beyond - this amendment completely struck the content of the bill and substituted a request for information on a wide range of subjects - the linked video's best part includes Gaetz
      calling out Susan Rice, Loretta Lynch, James Comey, Bill Clinton, Barrack Obama, and Hillary Clinton

      FWIW, there was a WH-anon who suggested Trump was quietly undermining the dems bill with Mueller's appt. as special counsel to flip their investigation on it's political axis...whilst the left was too caught up in their own arrogant and autistic screeching over Trump's trans military ban. Dems hoisted by their own petard!

      The Peddler of the infamous peeing Russian Hookers dossier, Orbis, is being sued for defamation, BuzzFeed and Establishment dirty tricksters Fusion GPS are all being called in, and they are covering their own asses and implicating others, all under oath.

      As AOW points out, Congress and Justice are most likely on the trail of numerous Democrat malefactors, and Schultz's IT guys are now under arrest...

      So there are many Democrat lids that could blow, but Mueller's fishing excursion with his yacht full of Democrat operative will continue.

      The best that came come out of this, from President Trump's point of view is a tit-for-tat scorched earth. They go after him, his Justice Department goes after Hillary, Loretta Lynch, the FISA and unmasking abuses by Susan Rice et al...

      As for reading transcripts, my worsening eyesight makes that highly improbable, if not diwnright impossible. It literally HURTS to read more than a few paragraphs now, even when the type is highly magnified.

      No point in lamenting. I am convinced that life is MEANT to be a continual GRINDING DOWN process till finally DEATH releases us from incessant pain and deprivation of one sort or another.

      It is up to us to learn to be "GOOD SPORTS" about it, and strive to do the best we can while TRUSTING in GOD under continually worsening conditions.

      If we learn nothing from our suffering, and develop little or no WISDOM or EMPATHY as a result, we have FAILED at life.

      On the other hand, if we gain INSIGHT and a greater sense of PERSPECTIVE on our journey, the ENLIGHTENMENT that comes will help TRANSCEND earthly cares and woes and thus TRANFORM our pain into a profound kind of JOY –– just as it did for Emily Dickinson.

      Sure, he gets credit for that in my book.

      He voted to repeal and replace Obamacare, then voted no to a partial repeal.

      So, we cannot accurately say that he did nothing so as to avoid doing the wrong thing.

      Let's see how he votes on the next round: "the skinny repeal," I believe it's been dubbed. I haven't a clue what the term entails, though.

      I just read this incredible statement about the "skinny repeal":

      Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Ron Johnson and Bill Cassidy say they will not vote for "skinny" Obamacare repeal unless they get assurances that it will not become law.

      I don't see that how Senator McCain is voting on ObamaCare is piling onto Senator McCain. He returned to Capitol Hill, after all.

    8. FT,
      Often, when we make "Change for the Sake of Change" we do more harm than good.

      Many were elected to Capitol Hill on the basis of fulfilling certain political platforms, one of which involved ObamaCare. Remember the Tea Party Caucus? I'm sure that you do!

      For 7 straight years, the GOP on Capitol Hill voted to repeal ObamaCare. Now they have a POTUS who will sign such a bill, and they choke!

      I tell you this...

      If the GOP doesn't get its act together and produce, the 2018 and 2020 elections will be bloodbaths.

      Opportunity squandered!

      So, this time, hesitating can be deadly.

      Of course, all this begs one question in my mind:

      WHY THE HELL WASN'T THE GOP READY TO GET THINGS DONE BEGINNING JANUARY 20, 2017?

    9. "WHY THE HELL WASN'T THE GOP READY TO GET THINGS DONE BEGINNING JANUARY 20, 2017?"

      The answer to that, of course, constitutes the Heart and Soul of the problem. All the rest of the deplorable situation we're forced to deal with right now is just so much Window Dressing –– a Farce –– a Potemkin-lke PRETENSE at governing –– a Vain Show –– nothing but Panem e Circenses.

      We can grumble, lament, accuse, denounce and fulminate till the cows come home, but ALL we're doing is deepening the Circular RUT around which we run in fruitfless pursuit of an acceptable Answer to the crying Need for a Solution.

      If we don't stop going 'round in circles, the RUT we are digging will become so DEEP, the sidewalls are bound to collapse and BURY us,


      "Be STILL, and KNOW that I am GOD ..."

      ~ Psam 46

      I believe the Problem to be EXISTENTIAL. The anti-Christian, anti-Tradition, pro-Marxian Academic Secularists, apparently, want to believe that THEY are capable of achievng Heaven on Earth –– even IMMORTALITY with PERMANENT YOUTHFUL VITALITY for "EVERYONE" –– if only "we" would simply bow down to THEM and OBEY their Commandments.

      In other words "THEY" in their boundless conceit and arrogance are determined to substitute THEMSELVES for Almighty GOD.

      If THAT is not doing the Devil's Work, I can't imagine what would be.

    It's such fun singing Songs of Doom
    Here in Blogger's Romper Room
    Intoxicating more than Meth
    Is the foetid Breath of Death.
    'Tis wondrous to behold the Sighs
    Accompanying our Demise!
    Gabbling here in Romper Room
    Makes joy in contemplating Doom!
    More fun even than coition
    Is the constant opposition!
    Harmony is oh-so boring
    And doubtless soon would see us snoring!
    Life for some sans sneers and sniping
    Would be reduced to weak shrill piping!

  12. A hypothetical question: If 85% of a democracy voted on say national healthcare should their elected government respond to this majority's desire? Should the 15% be able to opt put and accept the consequences of their decision, whatever that might be?

      If a flaming pinhead simpleton claims to be a Randian conservative but spends 85% of his time as a dancing boy entertaining the kook fringe left, is he an 85% idiot? Should right thinking blogs allow him to spend 15% of his time here gurgling out vapid pronouncements, when he spends 85% of his time bashing those on the right?

    1. Astonishing that he was able to make the trip from Arizona to Washington at all under the circumsances.

      We have to say one thing for McCain: He has a WILL of iron. However, he may not live long enough to return to his home state, except in a coffin.

      On the ther hand he may fool us all –– the way old Jimmeh Cawtuh did not so long ago, when '"everyone" thought he was dying of cancer.

      Ol' Jimmeh is still very much around. I'll let others decude whether that is a good thing or not.

      John McCain is a VERY strange guy. I don't pretend to undersnd him, I doubt if anyone does –– including himself. BUT he IS "The People's Choice" in Arizona and as such we must give him at least as much respect as we'd give any other duly elected government official.

      As for the GOP, I have completely given up on THEM. With the exception of the Freedom Caucus –– a small minority in the House of Representatives –– most of those guys don't have enough guts to say "BOO!" to a goose.

      I have to maintain that our congress creatures are in the thrall of a semi-secret CABAL ruthlessly promoting and implementing an Inernationalist Agenda forced on our elected representatives by moneyed interests too powerful to resist.

      Could you think of a MORE plausible explanation for the GOP's absurd, SUICIDAL performance? If so, I'd be happy to hear it.

    2. FT,
      We have a Uniparty -- with the except of the Tea Party Caucus.

      I'm sure you heard that Senator McCain cast the deciding vote early this morning.

      The GOP is self-destructing. As I've seen stated: "The GOP -- ever able to pull defeat from the jaws of victory."

    3. This is a pale replay of his old buddy Ted Kennedy returning after brain surgery. The parallels are there: Old revered senator, health care bill, brain surgery, rushing back to the senate from a hospital bed, impending death hangs like a pall, but no one mentions it openly...

      Unfortunately for McCain, his mission is not as urgent or noble as Kennedy's. The GOP is a muddled-up mess. The Democrats--regardless of what you think of Obamacare--were focused in like a laser on bringing healthcare to the masses.

      Also, since McCain is a Republican, he will not be canonized as Kennedy was immediately upon his death.

      Agreed.

      I'm listening to MSNBC's Morning Joe (know thy enemy).

      Oh, the singing of the praises of McCain and Graham!

      They will continue to sing such praises as long as these individuals continue to further the Progressives' agenda.

    5. SF,

      Health insurance, not healthcare per se, IMO.

      The healthcare for the masses doesn't really work for the masses -- if these newly insureds can't come up with the deductibles. Their property will be seized via medical bills -- even their cars. The seizing of their vehicles will make it nearly impossible for them to earn any income.

      Redistribute the wealth!

      And to hell with the medical providers, who already eat at least 1/3 of the medical costs right now. This will lead to a failed business model.

      Get ready for single payer. It's inevitable, particularly if ObamaCare goes belly up.

    6. @ AOW: "Health insurance, not healthcare per se, IMO."

      Of course. You know it to be my position. I agree completely with your statement.

      My comment went to the single-minded focus of Democrats, as opposed to the GOP scrambled-up zoo fire. I do believe most Democratic congresspeople were genuinely trying to help people, albeit in a soviet bureaucracy, market-killing way.

    I agree with you. The roots of our troubles are existential, and because we are now off the path of Fundamental Principles (Gods of the Copybook), improvement cannot be made. You cannot build a house upon a rotten foundation.

    I feel the strong pull from the internationalists who are cocksure in their belief that “democracy doesn’t work,” so what we need is One World Government where the brightest and best informed will be able to DICTATE to us “for our own good,” and to guarantee a “better more equitable future for “ALL People.”

    Frankly, I would lie, cheat, steal –– and even kill –– to prevent “them” from enslaving the entire world “for its own good.”

    I see “them” as SATANIC, and any attempt to compromise with “them” could lead only to PERDITION (i.e. Hell on Earth).

    1. Kid's not confused at all. YOU are, you Rockhead.

      The previous administration was so riddled with corruption as to be rotten at the core, and the CLINTONS positively REEK of it.

      The FBI (Comey), the CIA (Brennan), the IRS (Lerner, Koskinen), The State Dept. (Hillary's Pay to Play for her own Personal Profit) and the DOJ (Holder and Lynch) are all so tainted with Socialist-Globalist anti-American Bias and Deep State Power Mania, not ONE of those agencies is trustworthy. Congress is every bit as bad ––maybe worse.

      President Trump is a veritable Knight in Shining Armor who was elected by a groundswell of passiin from the GRASSROOTS to SLAY the DRAGONS and SANITIZE the CESSPOOL that most regrettably is Our Nation's Capital today.

      YOU, Mr. Rockhead are not only CONFUSED you are abysmally STUPID. If not that, you have been badly MISEDUCATED, which is another word for a Victim of Marxist Indoctrination.

  25. Democrats like to have it both ways. Their mindset is that they don't want to appear weak on National Security but at the same time, they love open borders. Just like Voting Rights and Voter Fraud. Democrats scream about fighting for voting rights and stopping voter oppression yet who is the first to start screaming the other way when there is talk about enhanced authentication for voters to be sure they are legal voters? Which side also engages more in registering dead people, people twice,etc.
    One only needs to read the Progressive blog to see the hypocrisy of the left.
