Did the Democrats really want Mueller to speak?


As my parents used to tell us, sometimes saying nothing is your best card.  I guess that Robert Mueller forgot about that.
What did Mueller say?  In fact, nothing of legal consequence, but it will revive talk that President Trump should be impeached.
It did not take long for Charles Blow of the New York Times to go “I” or call for impeachment.  He is calling on Democrats to “do their duty“:    
What the hell is it going to take, Democrats?!
What evidence and impetus would compel you to do the job the Constitution, patriotism and morality dictate?
What is it going to take to make you initiate an impeachment inquiry?
Your slow walking of this issue and your specious arguments about political calculations are pushing you dangerously close to a tragic, historic dereliction of duty, one that could do irreparable damage to the country and the Congress.    
Really, Mr. Blow?
Let me ask Charles Blow a question:   Can you write an op-ed dealing with the specific articles of impeachment?  What law did President Trump violate and what crime did he commit?   
I get the feeling that Blow, and many others infected with Trump Derangement Syndrome, does not understand what impeachment means.
Blow may want to go back and watch the House debate of President Bill Clinton’s impeachment.   
First, you need an article of impeachment that proves that President Trump did something illegal.  You will need evidence or facts that support that conclusion.
Second, the entire House will have to vote on it.  I am not sure that the Democrats have 218 votes to pull that off.
Democrats have a duty, wrote Blow.  In reality, their duty is to gather evidence and write articles of impeachment based on information, not emotion.
Keep it up, Charles.  You are doing a wonderful job of reelecting President Trump.

We lost a couple of good guys this week

Image result for rip images

Old age and cancer take their toll, as we’ve learned from family and friends who’ve died recently.
I lost my dad a few years ago at age 89.  I have a good friend battling cancer, and it does not look good.  It’s life, but we are still shocked to hear that a friend or loved one dies.
This week, we lost two of my sports heroes: Bart Starr and Bill Buckner.  Starr was arguably the best NFL quarterback ever.  Buckner was undoubtedly one of the toughest guys ever to play baseball.  Starr was the master reader of defenses.  Buckner played baseball as if he were a hockey player.
First, Bart Starr died at age 85.  My love of Starr goes back to our early days in the U.S.
My brother and I had never seen a football game.  We were raised playing and thinking baseball 24/7.  However, it didn’t take us long to fall in love with the Packers and the game of football when our family settled in Wisconsin from Cuba. 
My first football hero was Bart Starr, the legendary Packers QB, who won five NFL championships and the first two Super Bowls.  He was also the MVP in those two first AFL-NFL Championship games, as they were known back then.
In fact, I loved Starr so much that I always wore #15 on every sports jersey.  It’s still my favorite number today!
Greatest game?  Probably the so-called “Ice Bowl,” but there were others.
With all due respect to Unitas, Namath, Staubach, Bradshaw, Montana, Aikman, Young, Brady, and even Favre, I will always pick Starr to start my big game.
Second, Bill Buckner was born in Vallejo, Calif. in 1949 and died after a battle with cancer.  His death was a bit of a shock because I did not know he was sick.
Buckner hit .289 with 2,715 hits and a .408 on-base average.  He played with the Dodgers, Cubs, and Red Sox.  He was a fan favorite everywhere he played but will always be remembered for missing that ground ball that killed the Red Sox in the 1986 World Series.  Buckner missed the ball, but a lot of other crazy things happened that inning.
He was a tough out, a great competitor, and the kind of guy you wanted on your team.
RIP, Bart Starr and Bill Buckner.  You made football and baseball a lot of fun over the years.

Guess who Cuba blames for its food shortages?

Image result for cuba food lines images
The communist regime in Cuba has issued another warning about food shortages.  And it’s all the embargo’s fault.   Have you heard that before?
This is from Reuters
U.S. farmers and agribusiness’s have sold nearly $6 billion in poultry, soy, corn and other products to Cuba since 2001 under an exception to the trade embargo that allows the sales for cash, helping to alleviate shortages on the Caribbean island.
However, Washington this month allowed a long dormant section of the 1996 Helms-Burton Act to take effect as it ratchets up the pressure on Venezuela and Cuba.
Title III of the Cuba sanctions law, waived by previous presidents, states that anyone whose property was nationalized after the 1959 Cuban Revolution, even if they were not U.S. citizens at the time, can sue any individual or company profiting from their former holdings.
Good for President Trump.  Better for the rule of law and respect for property rights.
Despite my support for President Trump’s actions or my overall agreement that the owners should be compensated, it has nothing to do with Cuba’s food shortages.
First, Cuba can buy food or anything else from any other country.   Why don’t they?  There are lots of countries who are agricultural exporters who love to sell their tomatoes and potatoes to Cuba.  The embargo won’t stop Brazil, for example, doing that.  It won’t stop Argentina or Uruguay from selling beef.
Second, the real problem is that nobody wants to sell anything on credit to Cuba.  It’s “no cash, no tomato” because the regime has a long history of failing to pay its debts.   It’s not the embargo it’s a socialist economy that could never sustain itself without a sugar daddy in Moscow or Caracas.
Blame Trump?  Nothing new.  We’ve been hearing that for a long time. 
The solution is for Cuba to reform rather than pretend that change is happening.

Chick-fil-A wins again

Image result for chick fil a cartoons

A few years ago, one of my sons brought home a promotion coupon from Chick-fil-A.  As I recall, the local restaurant was helping the football team raise money.  So we went, bought their sandwich meal and loved it ever since.
Around here, the restaurant is always in the middle of every fundraiser.  It’s clear that they take their community roles very seriously.
In Texas, the angry left decided to declare war on the restaurant chain.  The city of San Antonio went so far as to ban the restaurant from its airport.
Why?  Are they selling poisoned food?  Are they discrimnating against anyone by telling some to eat in the back?  Are the bathrooms for whites only?  Do they fire employees for speaking Spanish?   Do they force you to quote the Bible before you order one of their meals?  Do they preach politics like ESPN?  Do they force you to sign an affidavit confirming that you share their views on anything?
On the contrary, they take your order and a nice man comes around to check on the food.
They made the left angry because the ownership is pro-American and closes on Sunday.  They are also very traditional, as John Hinderaker wrote.   
So how does the left react when they don’t like something?
Do they start their own chicken sandwich places?   No.   They choose to destroy the people that they don’t like.
Thankfully, Governor Greg Abbott will sign the “Chick-fil-A law”, which will “prevent any government entity from taking ‘adverse actions’ against any individual or business for their ‘membership in, affiliation with, or contribution, donation or other support to a religious organization.’” and put this latest example of “leftist intolerance” to rest for now.   
Yes, for now.  Who knows what other enterprise has a target on its back?
Once upon a time, we had liberals like Senator Hubert Humphrey and VP Walter Mondale.  They called for social legislation and fought hard for what they believed in.  Today’s liberals want to tell you where to eat and push their ways in your face.
Something is very wrong when people can’t enjoy life and buy chicken sandwiches without pushing their politics.

Time for CNN to turn to food shows?

Image result for cnn media bias cartoons
We learned again that The Food Network is outdrawing CNN.  This is from Tammy Bruce:
CNN, the chief co-conspirators behind the Russia Collusion Hoax, has fallen to 15th place in primetime with fewer than 750,000 average viewers.
Throughout all of cable TV, during the week of April 1, Fox News grabbed the most primetime viewers with 2.3 million, MSNBC came in second with 1.6 million, and way below them, way below number one and number two, way below HGTV, the Food Network, Investigative Discovery, and the Hallmark Channel, sits the far-left CNN in 15th place, with only 745,000 primetime viewers.
Throughout the entire broadcast day last week, CNN managed to attract only an average of 524,000 viewers for an 8th place showing.
I wonder what the advertisers are thinking!  I wonder if any of them has suggested to CNN’s management to do some food preparation shows.
CNN problems are easy to understand:
First, they became obsessed with the Mueller Report and invested in a negative conclusion about President Trump.  As my old journalism professor once said, “don’t write the headline before you research the story.”  Clearly, the people at CNN thought they were on “the right side of history” and bet against President Trump.
Second, they forgot to do news.  It was 24/7 Trump panels rather than broadcasting news reports.  It’s supposed to be a news network, but nothing in the programming supports that.
So what happens now?  My guess is that ownership will read these ratings and make changes.  In the short run, the owners may roll back the anti-Trump nonsense.  In the long run, CNN may have a makeover and go food all day and all night.
Last, but not least, it’s sad that CNN has done this to itself.  The country needs vibrant news networks that report the news as objectively as possible.  I hope CNN returns to news and drops the panels.
What happens in 2020?  Too early to tell, but don’t be surprised if President Trump is re-elected and CNN is doing food shows.

The Mexican economy throws AMLO

Related image
Over the last few months, I’ve heard two things consistently from Mexican friends:
First, President Andres Lopez-Obrador (or AMLO as they call him south of the border) is benefitting from a nice honeymoon with the Mexican people; and,
Second, sooner or later, he is going to be tested when the economy slows down.   The point is that investors and business people are concerned with his leftist tone.
Well, maybe the test is here.  Maybe the Mexican economy is finally slowing down, throwing AMLO a curve (“una curva”).
This is from the Wall Street Journal:    
The Mexican economy contracted in the first quarter from the end of last year, a challenge for the six-month-old government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who is aiming for growth to average 4% during his six-year term.
Gross domestic product, a measure of output in goods and services, fell 0.2% in seasonally adjusted terms from the fourth quarter of 2018, the National Statistics Institute said Friday. The result was unchanged from the institute’s preliminary reading at the end of April.
Industrial output fell 0.6%, while services contracted 0.2% and agricultural production rose 2.6% from the previous quarter.
The statistics institute also revised down growth for the fourth quarter of 2018 to practically flat from 0.2%.
As always, there are “official explanations”, such as gasoline shortages, the fuel theft from pipelines crisis, some labor strife at manufacturing plants in the north and teachers blocking railways for several weeks.
I’m sure that those are real factors.  However, the U.S. economy was expanding during most of last year.  I don’t recall a slowdown in the Mexican economy when the U.S. was booming.  In other words, the two economies are very much connected.
So let’s see where the Mexican economy stands in another six months.  AMLO needs lots of growth to finance his promises.  So far, he is not getting it!

Didn’t China sign the Paris Climate Accords?

Image result for china environment images
As we speak, President Trump is negotiating a trade deal with China. 
I hope that he’s reminding China why the U.S. pulled out of the Paris Climate Accords.  President Trump was right when he said that the agreement had no enforcement mechanism against countries like China.
This is the latest about China and their “commitment” to environmental concerns:  
Chinese factories are pumping tons of dangerous chemicals into the air despite an international agreement intended to halt the destruction of the ozone layer, a study released on Wednesday said.
Two provinces in China have been cited as a source of a spike in emissions of a globally banned chemical chlorofluorocarbon, according to the study, published in the journal Nature.
“This is a huge problem,” a State Department official told the Washington Post. “If it’s a problem in another country, we’re also going to be suffering.”
I’m sure that it impacts other countries but does China care?  I don’t think so, and that’s precisely why the Paris Accords are flawed.  You can’t sign accords that carry no enforcement mechanism.  Otherwise, the U.S. will respect it and China won’t, as we see in this report.
Am I surprised that China could care less about the environment or agreements?  I am not.  I just hope that Americans now understand why we must stand up to China at this time.

Beto without Ted

Not long ago, Representative O’Rourke pulled off a great showing in his race against Senator Ted Cruz.  It was the first competitive statewide race in years.
Beto benefited from several factors:
1) It was a midterm election with a super energized Democrat Party nationwide.
2) He raised $70 million to defeat Senator Cruz.  He used much of it to sign up and get people out to vote on a straight ticket basis.  I remember getting a super glossy Beto brochure in my mailbox for two weeks before election day.
3) He had the entire Democratic Party cheering his effort to unseat party enemy #2 — Ted Cruz.   The left hates Senator Cruz only a bit less than President Trump.
4) Last, but not least, the media fell in love with Beto.  He was charming, cute, and just too much for the more serious Senator Cruz.
That was then and this is now, as someone said.
Beto is barely hanging on in his run for president.  The latest RCP average has him at 3.2%.  It’s hard to see how that number gets him on the ticket, especially with a white man leading it.
So what happened to Beto?  
I’m never going to say that it’s over, because Senator McCain was not exactly setting the world on fire at this point in 2007.  
Beto faces two difficult hurdles:
First, there is nothing new about his message.  It would have been more sensible if he had run as a centrist and navigated away from the leftist harbor.
Second, he is weird.  Did we really need to see him at the dentist?   His recent statements reflect a man desperately seeking a headline rather than a serious candidate for president.
I’m not saying goodbye to Beto.  He will be back somehow.  Nevertheless, I do think his presidential ambitions are over for now.

And now Joe ‘de-Hydes’?

Image result for joe biden cartoons

We are watching a rather sad movie or the rewriting of Joe Biden’s resume.  Once upon a time, he said some interesting things about Anita Hill, immigration chaos, and late-term abortion.   
That was Joe BT or Joe Biden before Trump.   Now, it’s Joe AT — after Trump.   
Frankly, Joe BT was better.  At least, he was speaking from the heart.   Joe AT is just pandering to a party hijacked by the left.   (Let’s stop calling these people liberals, please)
The latest change is over the Hyde Amendment, as John McCormack wrote:   
In what may be his first major move to the left on policy as a 2020 presidential candidate, Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden has endorsed repealing the Hyde amendment, a measure that prohibits federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape, incest, or when the mother’s life is endangered.    
“It can’t stay,” Biden said of the Hyde amendment during an exchange with an ACLU activist earlier this month. The video of the exchange was posted by the ACLU on Twitter on May 8th but has drawn little attention since then (it was flagged by Washington Post reporter David Weigel on Sunday evening).
This is sick and it makes VP Biden look bad.  
First, it won’t work with the party’s crazy leftist base because they won’t believe the flip-flopping.
Second, it won’t work in the general election because he will look like a man who just reads polls.
Maybe VP Biden will win the nomination or win the presidency.  He may also melt when the activists start challenging his authenticity.
Stick to your principles Joe, or the Trump campaign will tear you up using your own words.

Out of touch Democrats need to look down under


Over the weekend, a new round of experts got stung.  

Down in Australia, the voters sent a message and you’d better believe that “climate change” was in the mix.

This is from Stuart Varney:
The candidate Opens a New Window.  pushing tax hikes was sure to win.
The media Opens a New Window.  and the elites backed him.
The polls all said he would come out on top. Even the exit polls said he would win.
But he didn’t. Bill Shorten, Labour Party leader, lost Australia’s general election. The pundits are in a state of shock!
Now we don’t spend much time on Australian politics, but Democrats here should be taking a long hard look at this one.
In Australia voters were not prepared to sacrifice in the name of climate change, and they didn’t want to risk their prosperity by taxing the rich!
To be fair, election results are always complicated but something happened down under and it was not give us more liberalism.
On Sunday night, I called an Australian friend who lives in the area and asked for his thoughts about the election.  He said two things:
Australians are fed with an ever bureaucratic government.  They want more and more taxes and give you less services.   As he said, we are not getting our money’s worth.
He also said that climate change is one of those theoretical topics that sounds good on paper but hard to explain to the businesses or even labor unions fearful of losing their livelihood.
Is there a message for Democrats?  Yes — talk to real people and listen to what they have to say.  Beware of experts who only talk to other experts.

Joe can’t move to the middle and keep the base


According to the Atlantic, Mr. Biden wants a united front and to lower the party’s angry volume:
Biden is not getting into name-calling, a la President Trump. 
He’s not getting into Sanders-style proposals like Medicare for All. 
And he’s definitely not getting into crowd sizes. The roughly 6,000 people who stood in the sun waiting for him was less than a third of the crowd that showed up for Kamala Harris at her launch in Oakland in January; less than half the number Sanders drew for his first rally in Brooklyn in February; and a full 3,000 people behind the crowd who stood in a snowstorm to watch Amy Klobuchar give her kick-off speech in February. In the heart of Philadelphia, nearly half a century after he launched his national political career just down the highway in Wilmington, Delaware, Biden had roughly the same number of people who went to Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s kick-off rally in South Bend, Indiana, a month ago.
Maybe we can call it Biden’s version of a kinder and gentler liberalism.  Maybe  Biden thinks that he can bring out “the quiet Democrat” who is not watching Rachel Maddow or Chris Cuomo.  Maybe he has polling data that the party is not so far left as the other candidates think that it is.
Biden will face a very simple problem.  First, the base is all about hating President Trump.  They want to get President Trump at any cost, including turning the 2020 convention into a total circus.
Eventually, Biden will have to take a position on abortion, the border, and health care.  He can’t avoid specifics too much longer.
Finally, his good polls overlook the fact that most Democrats would prefer a so-called “progressive candidate”.  In other words, two out of three voters are not supporting Biden.
Enjoy it, Joe.  Yes, enjoy it because the base that hates President Trump is going to start hating you pretty soon.

What does a naked model have to do with aborting babies?

The Alabama abortion law is already paying dividends.  It has unleashed the silliest of responses, from “white men who voted to deny reproductive rights” to movie stars going naked to oppose it.
Cheers for the law, because the pro-abortion crowd is living up to its well known immaturity.
The naked woman is Emily Ratajkowski.  Please forgive me, but I don’t know who she is.  Nevertheless, she decided to go naked and fight those white guys who won’t let women abort.
In Alabama, a female governor signed the law, and six female legislators voted yes, too.  So I guess that it was more than white guys.
My experience is that pro-life marches are made up of thousands of women, too.  My wife, and some church friends attended one in 2018, and around 7,500 people were there.  Mothers and babies everywhere!
So why the naked bodies?  What point is this Ratajkowski making?
She is not making any logical point, because women have always controlled their bodies.  It did not start with Roe in 1973.
The pro-abortion movement is its own worst enemy, from calling for a “sex strike” or showing off naked bodies to protest abortion.
Alabama’s law is off to a smashing start.  Just look at the opposition.
