“H**l, no, you are NOT going to take our AR-15s!” – Friday, “Beto” O’Rourke officially dropped out of the Democratic Presidential race, although his campaign had been running on fumes for some time.  After a big media splash at the start, his polls never rose out of the low single digits, and his attempt to set himself apart by acting like Michael Moore in need of Ritalin didn’t help.

It was “Beto’s” bad luck to be anointed as the newest “Great White Hope” of a Democratic Party that now reflexively hates anything white, forcing him to apologize for his own skin color.  His strongest resume item was losing by less than expected to Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race (having a fawning media and $80 million in donations, much of it from out of state, was largely to credit for that.)  Much of his success in that race was based on media myth making (“He’s so Kennedyesque!”) that didn’t stand up under the glaring lights of the debate stage. His desperate attempts to salvage his campaign by becoming the rampant id of the Democratic Party also didn’t work.  He kept profanely blurting out things that Democrats have tried to keep under their hats for years, like, “H**l, yes," he’s going to take your guns, ban fracking and revoke your church’s tax exemption if your pastor doesn’t start performing same-sex marriages. 

He so fouled his own nest that the article linked above predicts his political career in Texas is over. The Lone Star state may be turning more purplish, but as President Trump likes to point out, it’s still not friendly territory for someone who attacks religion, fossil fuels and guns.  Not to mention wanting to tear down all border fencing.  As an Irishman who’s far to the left of most Americans and who likes to pretend he’s part of an ethnic group that he’s not really a member of, he might want to try moving to Massachusetts to run for Senate. Or else get a job standing outside used car lots and waving his arms to attract attention.   

The good news in “Beto’s” flame-out is that after the media has hammered into us that America is moving left, “we’re all socialists now,” and all the rest of that nonsense, he’s proven that a candidate who openly embraces all the most trendy leftist views (gun confiscation, forcing LGBTQ dogma onto churches, open borders, the Green New Deal, Medicare For All including illegal aliens, etc.) still can’t get above 3% even in the Democratic primary polls. 

Finally, to give “Beto’s” departure all the seriousness and reverence it’s deserves, here’s the Babylon Bee’s take:




I told you that President Trump, like so many lifelong New Yorkers, is officially changing his place of residence, this time to Florida.  He made it clear why: because of the terrible leftist leaders of the New York City and State who are more concerned with abusing their power to target him personally with legal harassment than in doing their jobs to make life better for their constituents.

Trump also tweeted, "Taxes and energy costs are way too high, Upstate is being allowed to die as other nearby states frack & drill for Gold (oil) while reducing taxes & creating jobs by the thousands. NYC is getting dirty & unsafe again, as our great police are being disrespected, even with water dumped on them, because a Mayor and Governor just don’t 'have their backs'….Too many people are leaving our special New York. Great leaders would work with a President and Federal Government that wants our wonderful City and State to flourish and thrive. I Love New York!"

Naturally, that’s not what the left is reporting.  One major media outlet suggested Trump was just trying to avoid paying taxes (he’d hardly be alone in trying to avoid the confiscatory New York taxes, but why would he pay them for decades, then finally move when he’s no longer taking any salary?) 

And proving Trump right, rather than addressing his criticisms of how he’s doing his job, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo responded by taking personal shots at Trump, tweeting, “Good riddance” and calling Trump “repugnant” and not a real New Yorker (granted, I’m from Arkansas, but he sure sounds like a New Yorker to me), and adding, “To be a real New Yorker, you have to be inclusive. We don’t tolerate divisiveness.”  So New York liberals are so tolerant and inclusive, they don’t tolerate or include anyone who disagrees with them on that.  Duly noted.

In the meantime, Trump will hardly miss the company of New Yorkers once he moves to Florida. Here’s a story from last January about how more people are moving out of New York than any other state. I guess they’re all just bigots who can’t stand all the tolerance and inclusiveness.



A reminder that this was the week when the idea of a Deep State subverting an elected President went from “crazy rightwing conspiracy theory” to something openly applauded by the left as part of the bureaucrats’ “higher call” than answering to the Constitution and American voters.



This is what “The Emperor’s New Clothes” would look like if it were written in 2019.  Maybe it should be retitled, “The Emperor’s New Dress.”



Sometimes a story is so shocking and disgusting, I don’t even want to talk about it.  But then, I hear that lots of people are talking about it, and it’s my job to tell you what people are talking about, so I at least have to point it out.  But I don’t have to dignify it by commenting on it. I think you can figure out what I think about it. It’s probably what you think about it, too.



News about the Trump economy that you’re not likely to hear on CNN: Last month, the number of Hispanics and Latinos employed hit 28,282,000, a new record.  It broke the previous record set one month earlier.  If media outlets do respond, expect them to do so by devoting more time to calling Trump a racist.



President Trump promised to “make America great again,” and what could be greater than having an American-made cheese named as the world’s best cheese for the first time ever?  (I’ll let you make your own “big cheese” and “make America cheese-grater” jokes.)



From the “Everything Is Offensive” File: The New York Times’ culture reporter frets that the playing of the National Anthem by TV stations at 4 a.m. might be seen as having “political overtones” and be “potentially divisive.”  This from the same paper that defends NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem on network prime time, which isn’t at all political or divisive.

If the playing of the National Anthem at 4 a.m. somehow offends you, I suggest you simply sleep through it, just like you probably did history class. 



Leaping on current trends, Apple is replacing its “family” emoji that depicted a man, woman and child with two androgynous-looking, “non-binary” people and a child of indeterminate gender.  Makes you wonder where the child came from. Is it a clone?

I hate to point this out to them, but both the emoji graphics and the devices they’re displayed on run on something called binary code, in which everything is expressed in two units: ones and zeroes.  So the non-binary family is binary.   Unless, of course, some of the zeroes identify as twos.

    New York can you blame the President for now picking Fla as his permanent home after the changes in New York. Back in the 50 and 60 I loved New York so exciting . Visited from Phila. Now I could care less to ever visit again. Trump did a lot in that city to help build and he was liked by many when he did his TV shows and even nasty Joy on The view was nice at one time? Not as President. They do not know the real workers today they have made so much money and hob nob with the elite they are so phony the Martha Vineyard crowd, where Pres Obama bought his $17 million dollar beach house, and Southampton. Pseudo rich crowd now in Southampton that at one time was strictly old money and the actor type like Gary Cooper. Sad when a city is taken over by a group of total liberals. Watch a Bravo real estate show they do from New York. The last one they had on the realtors were talking of prices falling even though see a condo go for $12 mill ? Think his going to Mar A Lago is super so pretty right there and his golfing all over. When he is retired and can travel go overseas to his places too. We the workers see what he has been trying to do for us and the SWAMP is not letting up . VOTERS ask why who had benefited the most to send our better jobs overseas? The top levels and who started this in the 90 the flow to overseas? Beware of the lies and fake scams as they try now per Russia and now the Ukraine . Set up totally .

    For the person who seems to be offended at the 4am playing of the National Anthem--hey!!! Bet you are hooked up to hulu, netflix, some satellite contraption which has hundreds of channels. How about, just turn to one of those channels at 4am? The number of channels playing the anthem is miniscule compared to how many are available. Many commercials have music that irritates me--so, I just turn the channel up by one for 5 minutes or so, so I don't have to listen--and there are probably many who are grooving out on that "music."

    The man who is winning at womens' sports is a nasty, nasty person. Although he probably is like some others who do what he does. He pretty much demands that I and everyone else in the world HAS to, I guess, praise him, not only for winning against women, but lavish praise because he decides he wants to be a woman. (Probably only because he wasn't winning as a man, so just claim to be a woman.) He is so "tolerant" that he celebrates the death of someone who doesn't believe as he does? Such a pleasant person ---NOT!!! I don't know if anyone I know is transgender, I do know some gay and lesbians and NONE of them speak nasty to us that don't agree, they still associated with non-believers, work with them, party with them, etc. Which I suppose is actually how the vast majority of gays and lesbians act---there are the radical activists who give a bad name to people who just want to live their lives. Thank goodness, so far in my part of the world, no one has screamed about being called the "wrong" gender, we don't have to have a list of genders for them to point to as what they want to be called, etc. Anyway, this man who is invading womens' sports is not only a cheater and liar, but one of the most nasty, unpleasant person I have read about. Bravo to the women in sports (whether straight or gay) who is standing up to him. I had to laugh--DEMANDED an apology, but refused it when it came. I do wish the gal had just turned her back and quit talking.

    Good riddance to beto. I think he over-extremed himself.

    Beto is a waste of time and resources along with Harris Booker Warren and the rest of those money grubbing candidates the socialist party threw out to extort money from people that just don't value money. This country's need for cancer cure and cure for disease that kill and destroy lives should have been used as a charitable contributions instead of trying to elect a person that would destroy America and the chance to help people around the world. So shameful and embarrassing that resources are being used to ruin the Country. Its like throwing food away from a hungry person that's the socialist way.

    While the Democrats are giving us impeachment, Trump and his policies are giving us jobs.
    While the Democrats are giving us impeachment, Trump and his policies are giving us a booming economy.
    While the Democrats are giving us Impeachment, Trump and his policies are giving us energy independence
    While the Democrats are giving us impeachment, Trump and his policies are giving families ways to make it on their on and be independent of the government
    The list goes on, but you get the idea

    ANd the single largest taxpayer in the State of NJ, a NY Hedge Fund manager, picked up and left his mansion her for a better place in FL. Why? LOWER TAXES! All this 'free stuff' is expensive.

    I am so sick of hearing about the impeachment joke that the Dems are busy with. How is the WALL going? I hear that there are more Africans trying to sneak over here. What about those Mexican Dreamers? Maybe they should apply for citizenship because no one really cares about their problem anymore. I don't hear about men using ladies room since Obama left office.

    Great newsletter tonight.

    Regarding the story about NYC losing people and Florida gaining, actually my husband and I are planning to follow President Trump out of New York State too, within 5 years once my husband retires. Florida is a good, conservative voices are heard there, state to live in.

    MOST smart and financially wise people are the ones leaving NYS. Enough is Enough!

    Also, any increase in population of NYC are all from illegal immigrants and felons let out of jail. Those are the ones Cuomo favors, not those who are legal in every way. Even though we legals have been paying his salary while he's in office and his father's before him, you'd think a little gratitude would be nice, but of course Liberals and Democrats don't know anything about gratitude, just nasty attitude against those who disagree with them.

    Upstate New Yorkers are again talking and approving more and more of the idea of splitting up New York State, leaving NYC to their own devices and Upstate New York, anything West and North of the Hudson River and Albany, as it's own state. Upstate New York culture is totally different than NYC culture, if you call it having a culture in NYC, just criminals and people who don't pay taxes as they rent everything and they don't even live in the U.S.A., but own property in NYC. But that's okay if you are a Liberal and underhanded anti-American Socialist, you can get away with it as you are probably a buddy to Cuomo and DiBlasio mob any way. All of them are corrupt and unethical. Buddies with Soros, (not sure if he is actually a legal citizen of USA?), but is best buds with all those other criminals dressed in suits. Just like in the classic movie, Crocodile Dundee II, when they storm the compound to get to the Mexican, Latin American drug cartel, that is more truth than fiction if you really think about it! I wonder how many of those 'drug cartel compounds' are allowed in NYC and Long Island, Mass., all those places run by Liberal Democrats who are anti-American? I bet several with the blessings from 'king cuomo' and 'his joker di blasio'.

    I am so disgusted with Liberals! I have been since 'sex-craved Clinton' was in office. That was the downfall of America right then! Actually Kennedy before that with his 'unethical attractions too'. The best of American moments was the speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., but unfortunately the Liberals didn't like hearing that American truth either. As they are the ones who keep people of color from bettering themselves, they are the ones who started the 'hyphenated' American names. They don't want people of color to accomplish great things, as if they do, then it would prove the Liberals are really as bad as Hitler and Stalin were. So they try and blame Conservatives... but WE THE PEOPLE know the real truth of it all. Truth always wins over lies and deceit.

    Dems are so transparent. They & MSM are trying to convince us that majority of voters think President Trump is despicable. They take phony polls which are not representative of the majority of the people. Which married Dem President courted Marilyn Monroe. Which married Dem Senator caused the death by drowning of a young girl in his car while he was driving drunk. Did MSM ever call these brothers despicable and call for their impeachment/censure? Current Dem presidential candidates are painted as likeable by the voters. MSM has it backwards. MSM lies in collusion with leakers provided by Pelosi’s cohorts. Dems are trying same tact they used on Justice Kavanaugh on President Trump. News for MSM, Dems, & Romney’s cohorts—people love and support President Trump.

    My thoughts about Rachel McKinnon. I don’t think he was ever a man.... gender is male, but obviously failed to become a real man, so he must have thought he could succeed if he became a woman. Well, he will never be a woman for God created him as a male and no known surgery can truly change the truth. Unfortunately he is failing as a ‘woman’ too. His brain still functions as a male, if or when it is functioning! He is one screwed up human and is doing damage to real women!

    One of the sayings from the US Army's 7th Army NCO academy (I attended in 1961 as a 19 year old PFC) was, "If no one is following you, you are not a leader". Trump once again will lead the way as New Yorkers abandon the cesspool on the Hudson for saner climes.

    Trump will be happier in Florida as long as he has AC and has bus loads of attorneys follow him. When he gets out of office he needs to sue the hell out of people. Id start writing lawsuits NOW starting with schiff, Brennan, clapper, everyone that got a check from CNN, NBC, all the fake news people. Just for entertainment id sue the Clintons and Obama. Then gotta sue the FBI laymen. The last suit should be another one filed against Schiff. He needs about 200 attorneys at lest and he will finally get to throw his pocketbook at some people.
