How Much Blood Does It Take To Make A Crisis?

The question for today is: How much blood does it take to make a crisis?

Police officers shot and killed by illegal aliens. Millions of doses of lethal illegal drugs flowing across our border with Mexico while more Americans are dying annually from drug overdoses than were killed in the entire Vietnam war. Thousands of American lives lost by illegal aliens driving drunk, hundreds of killings by MS13 and other Hispanic gangs, thousands of sexual assaults by illegal aliens, not to mention all the other petty and not-so-petty crimes committed by illegal aliens. Emergency rooms overflowing with illegal aliens with tuberculosis, flu, pregnancies and other sundry ailments while Americans wait for hours for care. Hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens clogging up the immigration process by making bogus claims for asylum. School rooms all over the country filled with students who don't speak english which makes teaching those who do speak English almost impossible.

All this and more, yet Nancy and Chuckie have the audacity to continue with the refrain: No crisis here.....

Lack Of Intelligence A Bipartisan Affair

U.S. District Court Judge Timothy Kelly has granted CNN's request for a temporary restraining order reinstating Jim Acosta's White House press pass.

After a ruling that said Acosta was entitled to due process if the White House wanted to revoke his access to the White House, one wonders how a judge like Kelly ever got a license to practice law, much less an appointment (by President Trump no less) to a district court judgeship.

Regardless of a ruling by another district court judge in 1977 that said the White House must give the reporter notice and the right to rebut a formal written notice, Judge Kelly should have denied the claim that this revocation would infringe on Acosta's freedom of speech rights. Television and radio stations abound, newspapers print daily and weekly editions, and websites and podcasts all provide free speech outlets for anyone inclined to speak their mind. The decision to revoke Acosta's pass didn't limit his access to any of the millions of the aforementioned outlets. Acosta had proven to be a 'bad actor' in and around the White House and his reprehensible performance at the press conference where he refused to surrender the microphone was the final straw that broke the proverbial camel' back. He deserved to have his press pass revoked.

Macron Needs A History Lesson

It was rich that French President Macron lectured us and the rest of the world during the 100th anniversary celebration of the end of World War I about patriotism and nationalism.

In World War I France had over 4 million casualties and over 1 million deaths. By 1917 thousands of French soldiers were deserting and the French offensives against Germany had basically come to a halt while waiting for American and British troops to come save their bacon.

When Germany invaded France in World War II, the French armed forces folded like a cheap suit in less than a week. Romantic stories about the French underground to the contrary, if it wasn’t for our blood and treasure President Macron would be speaking German, drinking beer, and eating brats.

Collateral Damage

On October 14, 2018, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), while being interviewed by The New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, famously said:

We have to have total clarity about what we do, when it comes to everything — a woman’s right to choose, gay marriage … whether it’s about immigration, whether it’s about gun safety, whether it’s about climate … I think that we owe the American people to be there for them, for their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country, and if there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well, so be it, but it shouldn’t be our original purpose.

I wonder if she puts Congressman Steve Scalise (R-LA), who was shot while practicing for a charity baseball game by a crazy Democrap, in the collateral damage category.

Today bombs were sent to a number of high profile Democraps including HRH Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, ex-CIA chief John Brennan, and the bastion of fake news, CNN. Fortunately, none of them exploded. Next time they may go off, but don't worry, it's only collateral damage.

Is this a case of "you reap what you sow?"
