The morning news

This is not me in the photo. Just so you know.

—–

When I lived in Houston, Texas, I worked evenings till about 1 a.m., and I would stay in bed the following morning till around 9. My wife would have already departed for her job, so I would be alone.

She would have scooped up The Wall Street Journal from our suburban lawn and left it inside for me. I would sit in the living room in a wing chair and read it. The previous night I would have read The Houston Chronicle because that’s where I worked.

I wish I still had access to The Wall Street Journal, but I don’t. No physical newspaper awaits me in the mornings because there is no home delivery. I don’t know if there is U.S.-style home delivery anywhere in Mexico. Or if it still exists above the Rio Bravo.

Now I get out of bed about 7 a.m., and I climb the stairs to the second floor, turn on the H-P All-in-One and read the news online. Mostly, I read these three in this order: Breitbart, Gateway Pundit, and the New York Post. The last one is more for chuckles than anything.

On very rare occasion, I open The New York Times and The Washington Post if I am curious about the Democrat Party’s line of the day.

This morning, Breitbart tells me the University of Rhode Island has decided not to destroy World War II murals, that Marvel Comics has Captain America saying the American Dream is a lie, that Albuquerque social studies “recommended books” for students are all about “race and queerness,” and that Cori Bush says July 4 is only for white people because black Americans still aren’t free.

This, she says, from her office in the U.S. Congress.

I also learn a Black Lives Matter chapter in Utah deems the American flag a “symbol of hatred.”

I open The New York Times, and see nothing of this. I do read “why record-breaking overnight temperatures are so concerning” and that a 14-year-old has become the first black American to win the spelling bee and that world economic leaders are meeting to finalize a global tax agreement and that “the G.O.P. heads further into the abyss.”

The NYT also seems to think Joe Biden is actually the president instead of being a Deep State figurehead stooge with downward spiraling dementia. And that woman with the desired skin tone and genitalia waits in the warm-up box. She’s known, like a villain in a Batman story, as The Cackler.

I weep for the nation. As should we all.

White House Van Helsing

Many people voted for Geriatric Joe for no other reason than they were tired of the uproar, the wailing, of the last four years. Plenty of voters, primarily the utterly clueless, just wanted things to settle down and return to “normal.”

And the last four years have indeed been a tumult. Here is why:

The American Elite in the forms of the Deep State, the “news” media, Big Tech, Hollywood, Big “Education” and the rest of their smug, blood-sucking sidekicks were fat and happy before Donald Trump sailed down that escalator in the Trump Tower with the European babe at his side to announce his presidential candidacy in 2015.

To a degree, Trump is also a member of the American Elite. This is due mostly to his money, but he is also a common-sense guy who cares about America, and he clearly saw how the nation was careening off-course, away from its founding principles.

The Elites never expected Trump to win. They thought he was a joke, that they had things firmly in hand, as always, and Hillary would keep them on course. But he did win, and I have a scenario for what followed. Think Bram Stoker.

The Elites are blood-suckers, vampires. Dracula, collectively.

Trump is Dracula’s nemesis, Professor Van Helsing. And he has spent four years pounding a stake into the Count’s heart. You’ve seen the movie. As the stake is driven into Dracula’s breast, he screams and writhes. That is the movie version. In real life, Dracula has been screaming and writhing for four years nonstop.

Enough people grew weary of the tumult to inspire them to vote against Trump, thinking that he was the problem when actually he was the solution.

With the assist of voters, Dracula smote Van Helsing aside, and is stepping out of the coffin. It’s not the positive finale of the book or movies. It’s the grim finale of real life.

Things will settle down, but don’t think that’s a good thing.

Dracula has bounded out of the crypt, full of himself, meaner than ever, and seeking revenge. Blood will flow. It gives him power. Protect your neck.

Smart young German

IT’S AN OVERCAST, cool morning here at the Hacienda. I’ve been outside doing chores like cleaning the birdbath, wiping the patio table and chairs, chopping up banana leaves, that sort of thing. Abel the Deadpan Yardman comes mañana for what likely will be the final grass cutting of the season. The rains seem to have ended.

Back indoors now, and I found this video and a few more featuring this young German woman. She’s 19 and apparently making quite a splash online with straight talking against the excessive leftist nincompoopery in the Western World.

She is Naomi Seibt.

Some are calling her the conservative answer to that unfortunate, manipulated, uninformed, mentally ill, strident, Swedish girl Greta Thunberg. I am not badmouthing Greta. All of those adjectives are lamentably accurate. Her hippie parents should be jailed.

I enjoy bringing intelligence to your attention. If I had a Patreon account you could reward me financially, but I do not have a Patreon account, but thanks anyway.

While on things political, I would like to point you again to the just-published Inside Trump’s White House: The Real Story of his Presidency by Doug Wead, a former adviser to two U.S. presidents. I mentioned this book in passing on another post recently. I had just begun reading it then, but now I’m on the home stretch of the 448-page work.

It’s incredible and sad that so little is known about the very significant accomplishments of the Trump Administration due to the news media’s deliberate obfuscation since Trump took office almost three years ago. As I’ve mentioned here repeatedly, about the sole source of accurate info has been White House newsletters. You must subscribe.

But now this excellent, informative book is available.

Wead points out that the Trump phenomenon is unique in that his election win was not the traditional matter of one party defeating the other party. It is more accurately described as the Outsiders defeating the Insiders. The Insiders include Republicans and Democrats both, which explains why so many establishment Republicans oppose him still.

And it explains why the Insiders, particularly hysterical Democrats, are still pushing anything they can invent to eject the Outsider Trump from the Oval Office.

The book cites the huge economic successes, the defeat of ISIS (heard much about that?), the release of numerous American hostages, the resurgence of U.S. manufacturing, the big employment gains, getting NATO nations to pay their “fair share” for defense, the improved NAFTA (still not ratified due to Democrat stonewalling) and the considerable reduction of federal regulations that gets government off your back.

The list is very long, and most of it is ignored by the partisan news media and their apoplectic clients in the Democrat Party.

Buy the book. If you’re a clear-headed conservative, you’ll love it. If you’re a confused leftist, well, you’re not going to buy the book, are you? I’ve led you to the water trough, and now it’s up to you to insert your snout. You’ll be a better person for it. Trust me.

The morning overcast is burning off now, and it’s time to go downstairs for cereal and banana. Lunch at 2 p.m. will be smoked chops, stir-fried zucchini and tiny pasta.

Did you listen to Naomi?

Sean rips ’em a new one

SEAN HANNITY deserves a Pulitzer Prize for this very spirited commentary about the two years-plus of nonstop lying by the corrupt mainstream media/Democrat party, which are one and the same. It’s well worth watching.

But if you’re one of the leftists who lurk here, avoid the video. It will put you in a funk and worsen your TDS. Best to just re-read your last dog-eared copy of Mother Jones.

While the MSM has been hyperventilating over the phantom collusion, it has been burying all news of positive accomplishments by President Trump, which have been legion. About the only place I’ve found this available is on the White House website. Scroll down near the bottom and sign up for updates directly from the administration.

Ninety percent of the positive news available about the Trump Administration is found there because the MSM/Democrat Party simply ignores it. Sad state of affairs.
