In my last posting in this blog, I suggested that the recent spate of mail-bombs looked suspiciously like a false-flag operation by left-wing operatives.

Well, alternatively, it could just be one whacked-out nut-job with a bad attitude and a rap sheet as long as my arm!

I hasten to note that I left myself an “out” by including the caveat, “unless the perpetrator is, in fact, certifiably insane.” It appears well that I did so: within hours after I’d posted my last, law enforcement officials arrested and took into custody a suspect – one should probably say “the” suspect, as they are quite sure they “caught the right guy” – in the mailings. The individual, Cesar Sayoc, 56, appears to be vigorously pro-Trump and anti-Democrat, and as I say a repeat offender:

“Court documents obtained by ABC News show that Sayoc has a long history of criminal charges, including at least eight arrests in Florida alone, ranging from giving false information to get a refund to grand theft auto.”

He was also no stranger to explosive threats, though it remains open to question whether his devices would actually explode. Continue reading “Florida man Cesar Sayoc arrested in “insidious” mail bomb spree as more packages are found – ABC News”

Investigators have been searching coast to coast for the culprit and motives behind the bizarre mail bomb plot aimed at critics of the president

First, before I say anything else, let me be clear about one thing: politically-motivated terror is never acceptable, under any circumstances, and that is exactly what this is regardless of who is responsible or the motives behind it. I condemn in the strongest possible terms any use of terrorism to advance a political agenda.

I particularly abhor the fact that this is happening here, in the United States, where we supposedly have representative, Constitutional government, and the rule of law, and where there is a defined and clearly functional (despite the fact that some people will, inevitably, not like the results) system to bringing about political change in an orderly, rational, and legal way. That system must be defending against lunatics and zealots, alike.

That critical point having been made clear, let’s talk about the current situation. Continue reading “Investigators search for person who sent mail bombs, motive | Associated Press”

I Was A Never Trumper Until Democrats Went Gonzo On Kavanaugh | The Federalist

As a voter who recognizes the unfortunate realities of our politics, I believe supporting Trump has become the responsible choice.

“Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!”

For decades, now, the Democratic Party has been moving further and further to the Left, embracing more and more draconian and authoritarian approaches to political correctness, subverting the Constitution to serve its ideological agenda (not that it has a monopoly on that), and branding anyone and everyone who questions it as racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, and downright deplorable… even while proclaiming loudly how tolerant, liberal, compassionate, and committed to diversity and multiculturalism they (the Democrats) are.

Maybe so, as long as that diversity and multiculturalism was sexual and racial. But if it was intellectual or philosophical – particularly if, quelle horreur, it included conservative or traditional views on politics, society, philosophy, morality, or religion – the story was quite different. Still, until recently, they were fairly adept at concealing most of this behind a brocade curtain of liberalism and “love trumps hate.”

[The kind of “love” that hounds opponents and their families out of restaurants, screams profanities, vandalizes buildings and cars, and hits people with everything from eggs to bicycle locks, as it turns out, but I digress…]

That brocade curtain sagged and gapped a bit during the 2016 election, when Hillary Clinton depicted her opponents as a “basket of deplorables” (it had begun to flap open a little in 2008, when Barack Obama described his as “clinging bitterly” to God and guns). But it was ripped open and the ugly and dangerous machinery behind it exposed for all with the eyes to see during the Kavanaugh hearings.

Liberalism – psychological disorder

If you can ignore the spelling / grammatical errors, this is actually a very good point. This is not the only reason it should be added – and I might use the word “leftists” rather than “liberals,” because today’s liberals, so-called, are a far cry from classical liberalism – but nonetheless!

Marine Le Pen – Campaign Ad 1 (English Subtitles) “In the Name of the People” – YouTube

The French national elections are almost  upon us – the first round is on the 23rd of April. The two top scorers then face off in a second round on May 7th. Mme Le Pen is expected to win the first round. However, Emmanuel Macron, a centre-left politician in the mould of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, is favoured to win round two.

Says Mme Le Pen:

“I have always said that I’d like to be up against Emmanuel Macron in the second round because then the choice will be clear-cut.

“He is an unashamed globalist who wants to speed up the total opening of borders, free-exchange, and the evisceration of France in favour of private and financial interests.

“I, on the other hand, propose a return to the nation-state, the most effective structure to ensure security, prosperity, and democracy, and to protect our identity.”

It is not my place or intention to tell the French people what they should do. But I believe that Marine Le Pen would be a far better choice for France. We shall see what the voters decide!
