Democrats attempt to shit on Donald Trump, shit all over a Gold Star Family

And Gen. Kelly responds.

I was going to post a whole screed, but I don't think I need to do so.

Well, that explains it

I've often wondered why Cara Delevingne was a lesbian.  I mean, hot girl, famous, could have any guy she wants, and goes muff diving.  Turns out that 'ol Harvey Weinstein was attempting to be the fatty meat in a Delevingne sammich.  If that doesn't turn you off from guys forever, I just don't know what would.

As usual, the GOP lied

And now they're trying to find any way they can to save Obamacare.

Alexander said he’ll present details of the package to Republicans this week. Along with the insurance subsidies, the package would give states new flexibility on how their Affordable Care Act markets are run. It will also encourage states to meld their markets together, and let more people buy low-cost, limited-coverage plans.

"But Dave, that's just Lamar Alexander, not the whole GOP!"  Nope, they've lost the benefit of the doubt.  Until the GOP actual does what they promised to do for almost a decade now, every time I see something like this floated like a turd in a pool, I am assuming that it's got the backing of the GOP establishment. 

The GOP, especially the Senate, have proven time and time again that they care more about keeping Obamacare than they do about listening to the people who got them elected into office.  That's why Steve Bannon is out on a rampage right now working to get primary challengers to these noodle-spined statists that infest the GOP.

Bergdahl pleads guilty

Gosh, I'm so glad we traded five top Taliban leaders for this fuckwit.

Bergdahl, 31, is accused of endangering his comrades by abandoning his post without authorization. He told a general after his release from five years in enemy hands that he did it with the intention of reaching other commanders and drawing attention to what he saw as problems with his unit. 
It wasn't immediately clear whether his defense has conceded that he's responsible for a long chain of events that his desertion prompted, which included many decisions by others on how to conduct the searches. Despite his plea, the prosecution and defense have not agreed to a stipulation of facts, said one of his lawyers, Maj. Oren Gleich.

Bergdahl walked away from his post. He set down his rifle and walked the fuck away, straight into the Taliban's arms.  Good men died trying to rescue him.  Good men who should not have had their lives wasted trying to rescue a fucking moron who walked the fuck away from his post.

Bergdahl was not worth those men's lives.  He wasn't worth the five Taliban leaders that Obama willingly set free, who are now back fighting against our troops in the Middle East. 

At this point, I don't even want this fucking dolt in Ft. Leavenworth, because I don't want the military to spend any more time on his worthless ass.  Dishonorable Discharge, forfeiture of all pay and benefits, reduction in rank to Private, and kick his ass to the curb.  Let him go back to smoking dope and being a drain on someone else. 

Things what help keep me awake

Especially when I'm being run ragged.

It's coffee pouches that you use like snuff or dip.  They were invented to help people quit using chewing tobacco, but I've found they're great at helping me stay awake.  Nothing but coffee and flavor, so you're not spitting everywhere.  And each pouch is about the equivalent of a quarter-cup of coffee.  I'm about to take a ten-day class that'll be running my ass into the ground.  I'm getting a six pack of these bad boys.

Am I glad I voted for him?

How's Trump doing these days, eh?

Now, almost nine months into his first term, how is he doing? Real unemployment is on the wane. The stock market is at an historic high. So is consumer confidence. Illegal immigration is down nearly 70 percent. America is now a net exporter of energy. Just a few days ago, Trump declined to re-certify the malevolent nuclear deal that Obama made with Iran, winning from Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu this commendation: “I congratulate President Trump for his courageous decision today. He boldly confronted Iran’s terrorist regime. . . . If the Iran deal is left unchanged, one thing is absolutely certain—in a few years’ time, the world’s foremost terrorist regime will have an arsenal of nuclear weapons and that’s a tremendous danger for our collective future.” 
Just a couple of days ago, Trump, having been disappointed by a supine Republican Congress, issued an executive order that will make it easier for people to band together to obtain health insurance tailored to their needs (instead of being forced into federally defined, one-size-fits-all plans) while also ending the unconstitutional federal subsidies (unconstitutional because the money wasn’t appropriated by Congress) to big insurance companies, amounting to some $7 billion per year (the price of getting those companies on board with Obamacare in the first place).

Can you imagine how much we could have accomplished of the GOP Establishment wasn't a bunch of big-government socialist fucktards trying to stymie Trump at every turn?  Ho.  Lee.  Crap.

Step One in repealing Obamacare

Just happened.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday that will allow Americans to purchase health insurance across state lines. 
The order is intended to expand choices to current Obamacare plans and increase competition so that costs come down for consumers.

If Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan were actual conservatives, instead of money-grubbing, scum-sucking, big-government Democrat swamp dwellers, legislation to do this would have been sitting on Trump's desk on day one.  Instead, we got...  nothing.  McConnell and Ryan have fought harder to keep DACA than they have to repeal Obamacare.

But since Obamacare was pretty much an executive order, with a bunch of executive orders pushing it along, I'm fine with repealing it by executive order.

This ain't good

The fish rots from the head, doesn't it?

First and foremost, standards at West Point are nonexistent. They exist on paper, but nowhere else. The senior administration at West Point inexplicably refuses to enforce West Point’s publicly touted high standards on cadets, and, having picked up on this, cadets refuse to enforce standards on each other. The Superintendent refuses to enforce admissions standards or the cadet Honor Code, the Dean refuses to enforce academic standards, and the Commandant refuses to enforce standards of conduct and discipline. The end result is a sort of malaise that pervades the entire institution. Nothing matters anymore. Cadets know this, and it has given rise to a level of cadet arrogance and entitlement the likes of which West Point has never seen in its history. 
Even the curriculum itself has suffered. The plebe American History course has been revamped to focus completely on race and on the narrative that America is founded solely on a history of racial oppression. Cadets derisively call it the “I Hate America Course.” Simultaneously, the plebe International History course now focuses on gender to the exclusion of many other important themes. On the other hand, an entire semester of military history was recently deleted from the curriculum (at West Point!). In all courses, the bar has been lowered to the point where it is irrelevant. If a cadet fails a course, the instructor is blamed, so instructors are incentivized to pass everyone. Additionally, instead of responding to cadet failure with an insistence that cadets rise to the challenge and meet the standard, the bar for passing the course itself is simply lowered. This pattern is widespread and pervades every academic department.

I have dealt with several West Pointers in my career.  With the exception of one of them, I have found them to be....  underwhelming.  In one case I wondered how the hell they ever managed to obtain the rank they did, given their complete, total and overwhelming lack of any kind of leadership what so ever.

I guess now I know.

This brings me to the case of now-2LT Spenser Rapone. It is not at all surprising that the Academy turned a blind eye to his behavior and to his very public hatred of West Point, the Army, and this nation. I knew at the time I wrote that sworn statement in 2015 that he would go on to graduate. It is not so much that West Point’s leadership defends his views (Prof. Hosein did, however); it is that West Point’s senior leaders are infected with apathy: they simply do not want to deal with any problem, regardless of how grievous a violation of standards and/or discipline it may be. They are so reticent to separate problematic cadets (undoubtedly due to the “developmental model” that now exists at USMA) that someone like Rapone can easily slip through the cracks. In other words, West Point’s leaders choose the easier wrong over the harder right.

This cannot and will not end well for the Army.  Commie Twatwaffles like Spenser Rapone will end up being "unfortunately killed by the enemy by a 5.56 round through the back of the skull" in a combat zone.  An Army who's leadership is so morally bankrupt cannot lead Soldiers into war.  Soldiers know if their leadership is worthy or not, and they act accordingly.

Huge number of people at West Point need to be relieved of command and responsibility.  The sooner the better.

Will Harvey Weinstein help bring down Hollywood?

I doubt it.  There are too many perverts, creeps, degenerates and flat out rapists in power and in control.  But it sure is fun to watch them squirm for a bit.

Seydoux says she saw Weinstein making similar moves on a young actress at a subsequent event. “That’s the most disgusting thing,” she writes, “Everyone knew what Harvey was up to and no one did anything. It’s unbelievable that he’s been able to act like this for decades and still keep his career.”

The heads of Hollywood have done something I had previously thought impossible - they have made me think even LESS of Hollywood in general.  I didn't think my opinion of Hollywood and the entertainment industry could get any lower.
