  1. So is Trump going to believe the lies from the DemoNazis and cave on DACA and amnesty? Will there ever be a wall built, will the illegals apprehended be immediately deported, will the employers who knowingly hire illegals face prosecution, will chain migration end, will the diversity visa lottery end, how hard will the GOPenii try to block these reforms? Inquiring minds want to know

  2. Google is like the Borg on Star Trek Next Generation, ie, you will be assimilated. The open sewer known as Twitter is about the same.

    My understanding is that Faceborg does the same sort of thing. Google and Facebook rake in close to 90% of all online advertising world wide, or that is the rumor. Why do business with them when they are so blatantly evil ?

  3. Hollywood is a complete ideological ash heap. It always has been, and it always will be. We have only just begun to understand the depths (and width) of the depravity found within the soft, rotted underbelly that is the primary source of the world’s popular culture. And yet, somehow, the Democrats took a speech that essentially condemned Democrats’ treatment of women and turned it into a rallying cry for Oprah to topple….Republicans.

    Ignore this threat at your peril. I am not saying she will run, and I am not necessarily even saying she would win her own party’s nomination; but I do seem to recall back in 2015 when a billionaire businessman who had started his own companies announced he was going to run for president. He was mocked, laughed at, and to the left’s greatest detriment: dismissed. Do not fall into the greatest political trap one can find, complacency.

  4. When Mexico purchased the two most advanced warships in the world from Great Britain, Commodore Moore didn’t hesitate to take on this threat to Texas. It was wood and sail vs iron and steam. Nobody gave the Texians a chance.

    But Commodore Moore sailed the sloop-of-war Austin between the Mexican ships and got off 530 rounds before the enemy disengaged. The Mexican navy would never again pose a threat to Texas.

  5. This little guy is a real trooper, surviving being shot 5 times in the Sutherland Springs church shooting. He’s still pretty well shot up and will undergo many more surgeries (I think they’ve already lost count on the number of surgeries so far. I don’t personally know him, but I’m still keeping up with his progress since he’s a local.

    A report on the radio said the firefighter who first found the boy has been visiting him every Sunday and promised him a ride home in a fire truck.

  7. So, last night Tucker Carlson interviewed a Democrat that thinks he can defeat Ted Cruz. I, of course, have never heard of him and my first thought was that doesn’t a have a snowball’s chance in hell, but then I thought about Roy Moore. You recon that there will be a sexual scandal in ted’s future…. Hey, it works, make the allegation without any proof and you’r outta there.
    Oh and I googled the dude; Meet the Kennedyesque Democrat Trying to Beat Ted Cruz.
    FWIW; I’ve not had time to read this but since it’s from Vanity Fair, I pretty much know what to expect. That’s if the title didn’t give it away.

    If you don’t stop linking to these books, I’m going to have to start building bookshelves in the basement.

  9. Well, of course….

    In response to Campus Reform’s inquiry on the matter, Lee simply stated that “I need only one license,” though she has yet to elaborate on precisely which license that is, and, according to the state in which she resides, she allegedly has none.

    Without mentioning Lee specifically, the American Psychiatric Association (APA) put out a recent statement in which it condemned the diagnoses of public officials whom psychiatrists have not personally examined, invoking what is commonly referred to as the Goldwater Rule.

    “We at the APA call for an end to psychiatrists providing professional opinions in the media about public figures whom they have not examined, whether it be on cable news appearances, books, or in social media,” the statement read, according to The Washington Examiner.

    “Arm-chair psychiatry or the use of psychiatry as a political tool is the misuse of psychiatry and is unacceptable and unethical,” the APA concluded.

  10. Cruz’s opponent shouldn’t be taken lightly. Beto O’Rourke has Kennedy good looks, a Hispanic first name, an Irish last name and has been engaging in retail politics for the last 18 months. He’s also free from most of the baggage of other Texas Democrats

  11. Mark this date and time: I agree with Sarge about this O’Rourke character. In case you haven’t looked lately, the entire bottom one-third of the state of Texas Corpus Christi to San Antonio to El Paso), as well as the urban population centers, are blue. The Dems are marching forward one brown step at a time.

  12. having every Trump sycophant trashing Ted likely isn’t going to help either.

    Not to be confused with Ted sycophants.

    The chaplain who sat with me Monday night discussed our mutual studies of family history. He said he had an ancestor who was in charge of the Texas navy. Wonder if this is the guy?

    BTW – the nurse we had also took care of Uncle Odin. Small world.

  14. Temperature out here peaked out about 58 degrees and is now down to 52 in just the last few minutes. Wind gusts to about 30 mph right now. Guess the little cold front is here.
    iPhone has a new pregnancy test app. Just download the app, pee on your phone, and if it turns blue, it’s positive. How much easier can it get. Plus, people will quit asking to borrow your phone.

  15. HEADLINE: Confirmation: DOJ and FBI Used “Steele Dossier” for Application To FISA Court for Search Authority on Trump Campaign…

    I think we all knew this long ago, now there is triple sourced proof that this is the case. There is rampant criminality with all the players in this conspiracy. I wonder if Snoozy McSnoozerson Sessions is going to indict a few of the players?

    /not holding my breath

    He wants to go after dope smokers instead of those who would undermine our very form of govt. URINE BE UPON HIM.

  16. Down to low 40’s and winds are howling from the north – 35 mph or so. No precip. Getting blustery out there.
    Wait a minute. It’s now snowing out there. Temps are above freezing, but it’s snowing. Bring it on.

  17. Lib Brother shared this with me: Waltz of the Flowers.

    I don’t know whether to be amazed at the genius of this or wonder why he has so much time on his hands.

    The use of magnets and multiple balls toward the end to interpret the music is inspired.

  18. I went from drizzle/mist at 68 degrees to blinding rain and hail 58 degrees to mostly clear and a spectacular double rainbow all on Eye 10 this afternoon. In the space of about 35 minutes. I’m a gonna declare that the leading ragged edge of the front is here.

  19. #7. Looks like Copano Bay Press has picked up where Eakin press dropped off. I have two books on the subject, my son had access to Baylor archives and did a term paper on further results of this. Freedonia and a revolt in Cancun were part of a result of this as I recall. Commodore Moore and the Texas Navy is the title of one of the books. The other is in storage and don’t don’t recall. Sam Houston wanted to sell the Texas navy, Texas could not afford it. Moore and Sam hated each other. The story is Moore and Houston took the same stage to Austin. Once each found out who the other was and they took turns riding with the driver so not to sit in the same cab together. Twas in the book as a story but not presented as proven. Thanks for the link to this book.

  20. WASHINGTON — President Trump on Thursday balked at an immigration deal that would include protections for people from Haiti and African countries, demanding to know at a White House meeting why he should accept immigrants from “shithole countries” rather than people from places like Norway, according to people with direct knowledge of the conversation.

    Sometimes it’s just impossible to not love this guy.

  21. But we don’t want any Norwegians either. They’re all commies. And have already surrendered to the Islamists.

  22. #47: I would be extatic with 25. That would at least give us a chance to assimilate those who are here. This is provided that we can fix the education system and purge the commie bastiges from its midst.

  23. 47 Phil

    I agree. Suspend posse comitatus and station the entire contingent of available domestic military forces on the southern border.

  24. The little guy, Ryland Ward, who was shot 5 times in the Sutherland Springs church shooting left the hospital today. The fireman who saved his life has been by to see him regularly, and he had promised a ride home in a big red firetruck, and that’s just what he got. Along with a caravan of police motorcycles, police cars, and other fire trucks. Pretty strong little trooper whose got a long way to go. I’ll post some video if I can find it somewhere – I put it up over yonder.

  25. When the Minority Whip disses the Former Speaker and current Minority Leader in public, she has a big problem with Party support. It began today.

    Steny’s shot over the bow…

    Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) on Thursday blasted Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) remarks about white men working on an immigration agreement as “offensive.”

    “The five white guys I call them, you know,” Pelosi said, referring to five bipartisan lawmakers, including Hoyer, leading efforts to salvage the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. All five of the male lawmakers are white.

    “Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?” she said, referring to the popular fast food restaurant “Five Guys.”

    Hoyer pushed back against the remarks.

    “That comment is offensive. I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected and I will welcome everyone to the table who wants to get this done,” he told Politico in a statement, using the nickname referring to recipients of the DACA program.

  26. Hoyer pushed back against the remarks.

    “That comment is offensive. I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected

    If only he felt that way about Americans and the country.

  27. I volunteer to fly one of a hundred A-10s up and down the Rio Grande.

    Then again, my stepson and his guys broke in a new Riverine Assault Craft back in 1990 for the Marines. Had a couple of 50 calibers on board. That would be fun, too.

  28. Well, it seems that the pink knit “p” hats are now out. Who knew that the trans and whatevers might be some color other than pink, and we can’t be anything unless we are all inclusive you know. My biggest question is “how are we going to tell the crazy ones now if they don’t wear their hats?” Oh, I remember now – if they are there, they are crazy. Of course, many of those who are not there are crazy too. I’m having a hard time keeping up.
    Looks like those hats will get cheap on ebay though.

    According to the social justice warriors of America, it excludes transgender and non-binary persons (whatever the hell the latter means), and women of color, whose genitals might not be pink.

    Uh……….but………never mind.

  30. I was woken from my nap by the incredible noisy hail storm. It was noisiest at the front of the house where it basically sounded like shattering glass. Fortunately, none of that actually happened. Out the back windows, protected by a roof overhang, there was not so much noise but there was an accumulation of the pea and grape sized hailstones on the deck. There was also a lot of rain swirling around so the hail that hit the ground quickly melted. Cats were fascinated by the noisy show.

  31. I take the blame for killing this blog page tonight. I spent 1.5 hrs at HOA board meeting tonight and it left me in a foul mood. Ptoooie
