A recess that Nancy Pelosi is going to hate

Image result for angry democrats images
Can you imagine what Democratic townhall meetings are like this summer?  The representative hosting the meeting will very likely face an angry mob ready to hang President Trump.  The mob will either say “do something” or “do more” or stuff that we can’t print on a family blog.
We could call it the summer of impeachment, as we see in this article by Adam Shaw:   
In California, Rep. Katie Porter, D-Calif., was immediately grilled about impeachment at a town hall this month. When she said she broadly favors impeachment, she was met by “rousing applause” according to Politico.
“People said, ‘Well, this might be risky, you might not get reelected,’” Porter said. “I said, ‘I am here to do what’s right.’”
In New Jersey, Rep. Mikie Sherrill, D-N.J., faced a more hostile reception when she said she opposes impeachment at this time and reportedly was interrupted multiple times as she made her point. The crowd accused her of playing politics, according to Politico, and threatened her with a primary challenge.
“Don’t be last to speak up. You’ll be challenged,” one woman told her.
And don’t underestimate their ability to challenge you.  Just ask a fellow named Joe Crowley who didn’t take a young woman named Ocasio-Cortez seriously.
Ultimately, all of this will head to Speaker Pelosi’s office.  She will face a very angry mob in her own caucus.  They will get more and more irrational as they come to terms with President Trump’s reelection.   
Nancy Pelosi is not singing “See you in September” this summer.

How can O’Donnell keep his job?

Image result for o'donnell msnbc cartoons
NBC News remained silent Thursday morning regarding whether or not MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell will face disciplinary action after being forced to apologize and retract a singled-sourced, unverified report — which bypassed the network’s standards — claiming President Trump possibly had loans cosigned by Russian oligarchs.
O’Donnell admitted on Wednesday that he aired information that “wasn’t ready for reporting” and broke NBC News regulations in the process.
“I did not go through the rigorous verification and standards process here at MSNBC before repeating what I heard from my source,” O’Donnell said. “Had it gone through that process, I would not have been permitted to report it. I should not have said it on air or posted it on Twitter. I was wrong to do so.”
So O’Donnell did not go through the “rigorous verification and standards process”?
Imagine your airline saying the pilot did not go through the “rigorous verification and standards process” and crashed the plane that your family was in.  Or the doctor operating on your relative.  Or the lawyer writing your loan agreement.
By any professional standard, MSNBC should dismiss O’Donnell and make an example of his reckless behavior.
In fact, it could be the best thing that could happen to the media.  It would send a message that sources must be verified, especially if they are telling you something “too good to be true” about President Trump.
MSNBC’s problem is that it’s trained its audience to expect something bizarre every night about Trump.  It’s time for NBC to realize that this is not really a cable news network anymore.

This is what energy independence looks like

Image result for energy independence images

Let me reveal my age and remember that I watched President Richard M. Nixon call for “energy independence” many years ago.  His successors have more or less said the same thing.
It appears that President Nixon’s call may soon be reality.  In fact, it looks like we may be “drowning the world” with oil, according to Nick Cunningham:
The U.S. is still expected to account of the bulk of new drilling and the vast majority of new production, with much of that coming from shale. 
Already, the U.S. is the world’s largest producer of both oil and natural gas. 
And the pace has accelerated in recent years. 
In 2018, U.S. oil and gas production increased by 16 and 12 percent, respectively. 
According to the EIA, the U.S. surpassed Russia in terms of gas production in 2011, claiming the top spot, and it surpassed Saudi Arabia in oil production last year. 
President Nixon must be cheering up in heaven!
“Energy independence” will have several consequences:
First, we won’t have to defend oil fields around the world.  Maybe the Europeans will finally appreciate what all of those U.S. aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf have been doing over the years.  The “oil sea lanes” may look a lot different when bad guys don’t have U.S. aircraft carriers to deal with.
Second, and back home, it will create a boom in jobs in the oil industry.
It’s good news all around, especially for those who remember sitting in gas lines in 1979–80.

Whatever happened to the Paris Climate Change Accords?

Image result for climate change hysteria images
As Tip O’Neill liked to say, all politics is local.   The best example of that is the Paris Climate Change Accords that were going to save the planet not long ago.
What is climate change running into?  How about economic interests?  
This is from Robert Bryce:   
While it’s true that more than 170 countries signed on to the Paris Agreement, that accord’s CO2 targets are not legally enforceable. (Trump withdrew from the Paris Agreement in 2017.)
Why, despite the urgency of dealing with climate change, aren’t more countries making big cuts to their emissions? The most succinct explanation can be had by understanding what Roger Pielke Jr. has dubbed the Iron Law of Climate Policy: “When policies on emissions reductions collide with policies focused on economic growth, economic growth will win out every time.”
Yes, all politics is local, specially when you have to shut down that plant in your district or state to make a bunch of EU bureaucrats in Brussels happy.
So did anyone ask President Emmanuel Macron or Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about their countries not living up to the accords?  I don’t remember, but they probably didn’t.
Add to all of this the hysterical comments about the planet disappearing in “12 years” or the astronomical cost of green legislation and you have a Democratic Party that will not schedule a “climate change debate”.   
Yes, even Democrats are figuring out that it is a lot easier to talk than do something about it.

Wonder what LBJ would think of the Democratic Party today




Image result for LBJ 1954 US Senate images
About ten years ago, our family was driving in South Texas, and we a saw a sign about the birthplace of Lyndon B. Johnson.
It was a reminder that LBJ was born here.  He was born August 27, 1908 not far from Johnson City, a place that his family had settled.
It was an even bigger reminder of how irrelevant he’s become to the Texas Democratic Party.  
The legend of LBJ is a lost memory in Texas politics.
In 1948, a young LBJ performed a miracle to win the U.S. Senate election.  
In 1960, Texas Democrats voted for the Kennedy-Johnson ticket in a controversial election.
In 1976, Texas voted for Carter in another very close contest.  Texas gave then-governor Carter the 26 electoral votes that helped him get to 290 and victory.
What a difference for today’s Democratic Party.
Not long ago, there were Texas Democrats like Senator Lloyd Bentsen, a conservative Democrat.  He defeated then-businessman George H.W. Bush for the U.S. Senate in 1970.  
The history of Democrats in Texas makes for very enjoyable reading, as you can see in this rather lengthy but fascinating history of the party.  I found this part on recent Texas history so important:
Factional infighting in the Democratic party declined during the 1960s. First Johnson’s presidential ambitions and then his presidency dominated Texas politics in that decade. In 1959 the state legislature authorized a measure moving the Democratic primary from July to May and permitting candidates to run simultaneously for two offices, thus allowing Johnson to run for the Senate and the presidency. (This measure, dubbed the LBJ law, also benefited Lloyd Bentsen’s dual run for the vice-presidency and the Senate in 1988.)
Despite efforts by the Democrats of Texas to secure the support of state convention delegates and power within the party machinery, conservative Democrats retained control. Through the work of LBJ and the Viva Kennedy-Viva Johnson clubs, the Democrats narrowly carried Texas in 1960, reversing the direction of the 1952 and 1956 presidential elections in Texas. 
Similarly, the 1961 special election to fill Johnson’s Senate seat had a lasting effect on Democratic party organization in Texas. After Yarborough’s unexpected victory in the 1957 special election, conservative Democrats in the state legislature amended the election laws to require a run-off in special elections when no candidate received at least 50 percent plus one vote. In 1961, within a field of seventy-two candidates, three individuals made a strong claim for the liberal vote, thus dividing liberal strength and opening the way for a runoff between William A. Blakley, the interim senator and a conservative Texas Democrat, and John G. Tower, the only viable Republican candidate in the race. 
Liberal Democrats thought Blakley as conservative as Tower and opted either to “go fishing” during the run-off or support Tower, thinking it would be easier to oust him in 1966 with a more liberal Democratic challenger. Tower, however, easily won his next two reelection bids and eked out a third in 1978. Liberals also hoped that a Republican victory would encourage the development of an effective Republican party in the state and allow moderates and liberals to gain control of the state Democratic party. Indeed, Texas Democrats statewide remained divided between liberals who supported Ralph Yarborough and moderates who backed LBJ. The two factions waged war over the gubernatorial contest in 1962, when John B. Connally, a moderate to conservative Democrat associated with the Johnson wing of the party, was elected. 
As governor, Connally concentrated his efforts on economic development but received criticism from liberals who thought he neglected minorities and the poor. 
The Kennedy assassination on November 22, 1963, which traumatized the citizens of Texas, also deeply shook the state Democratic party since it propelled Johnson into the White House and created the need for a greater degree of accommodation between moderate and liberal Texas Democrats. In the 1964 presidential race Johnson carried his home state with ease. 
In the middle to late 1960s, however, Connally’s iron rule of the State Democratic Executive Committee further weakened the liberal forces within the state Democratic party. 
The results of the 1968 presidential election in Texas also emphasized the sagging fortunes of the Democratic party in Texas, as Hubert Humphrey barely managed to carry the state.
My guess is that most of today’s Texas Democrats do not have a clue of this history or the names mentioned.
Texas Democrats all sound alike today.  There is no ideological diversity as you saw in the state party that produced a man like Lyndon Johnson and others. 
There are no conservative Democrats – just very liberal Democrats who subscribe to the same message of income redistribution and identity politics.  They are Obama Democrats rather than Texas Democrats.
Where are the Texas Democrats calling on the party to be more centrist?  They don’t exist, and that’s why the party is so boring and cannot compete statewide in a dynamic state.
Yes, there is calm in the Democrat ranks – the kind of calm that happens when nothing is going on.
Wonder what LBJ would say of his party today, especially the ones who want to take down symbols of the old South?  
To say the least, LBJ would not recognize his party on another anniversary of his birth in 1908.  
Sadly, most of these liberal Texas Democrats would not identify him, either.

Trying too hard to sound lefty?

We see it every day, from a wealth tax to racism and now the latest from Bernie Sanders: 
Fossil fuel executives should be criminally prosecuted for the destruction they have knowingly caused.   
Am I missing something?  Was that supposed to be a joke or one of those trial balloons that people float here and there?
Let’s think about this:
First, how are you going to prosecute business executives for operating a legal business?  What destruction has the fossil fuel industry created?  
Second, do people like Senator Sanders really think that primary voters are that crazy?  Wonder how many work directly or indirectly in a fossil-fuel business, such as a gasoline station or a retail store that sells motor oil or whatever?
Third, don’t they understand that they will have to shift to the center at some point in the future?  
Is the Democrat nominee going to say nonsense like this in his convention speech?
I don’t know the full answer.  
At the same time, there must be a lot of Democrats wondering about their party.  I recall a similar situation in 1971-72 and it did not end well for them.

What happens when a bunch of unpopular leaders greet Trump?

Image result for G7 images

By any measurement, President Trump is the strongest “trunk in the forest,” as my late father used to say.   
From President Emmanuel Macron to Chancellor Angela Merkel to PM Justin Trudeau, most current national leaders would love to have his approval ratings.     
Justin Fox made this point over the weekend:    
Donald Trump is an unpopular president. According to the Real Clear Politics polling average as of Friday afternoon, only 43.3% of Americans approve of his performance. FiveThirtyEight, which weights polls by quality, sample size and partisan lean, puts the average at 41.6%.
But as the president meets with leaders of the other G7 countries in the French resort city of Biarritz this weekend, he can take solace in the fact that he’s more popular than almost all of his peers. 
The lone exception seems to be Japanese premier Shinzo Abe, whose cabinet’s approval rating is 48.8% (to only 35% disapproval) in the Japan Political Pulse poll aggregator maintained by the Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA.
Only 32% of Germans polled for broadcaster ARD a few weeks ago said they were satisfied with German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government. 
In Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s approval rating was 41% in one recent poll and 39% in another (and in the second poll, by Ipsos, only 33% agreed that he “has done a good job and deserves to be re-elected”)… 
Then there is French President Emmanuel Macron, the one other more or less directly elected head of state (as opposed to leader of a parliamentary government) coming to Biarritz. 
In so many ways, he’s the diametric opposite of Trump: young, cosmopolitan, well-spoken, technocratic. He’s the least popular of the lot, with a 28% approval rating in the most recent poll listed by the diligent editors of the “Opinion polling on the Emmanuel Macron presidency” Wikipedia page and 22% percent in the one before that.
So what does it mean?   
At first glance, it means nothing to U.S. voters, because the media focus will be on the blunt Trump and his personality.   
Inside the meetings, Trump’s political strength will work for him.  Politicians always look up to the guy with higher approval ratings.  They want to be popular, after all.
Let’s hope that the other leaders also learn that the U.S. economy is doing better because of “growth-oriented” policies that encourage investment.

Koch and Ginsburg prove the Left is going insane

Image result for insane liberals images
To paraphrase Junior Walker’s great hit “What Does It Take,” let’s ask, “What does it take to drive a liberal mad, crazy, insane, or whatever?”
The answer is not much, or further confirmation that these people need a life or change channels every night.
We saw two amazing examples of liberals gone crazy this week:
First, David Koch passed away, and Bill Maher couldn’t wait for the funeral:
And now, some funeral news to report.  Yesterday, David Koch of the zillionaire Koch brothers died … of prostate cancer,” Maher said in the opening moments of his show.  “I guess I’m going to have to reevaluate my low opinion of prostate cancer.”
Maher specifically lambasted Koch for what he perceived as climate-crisis denying political stances and seemed to hold him largely responsible for the Amazon “burning up.”
Wow!  That shows a lot of class, doesn’t it?  I have not heard anything so outrageous since some college professor was blasting Barbara Bush for giving birth to a war criminal and marrying another.
By the way, the late Mr. Koch also contributed millions to charities and created thousands of jobs!
The next example of liberal lunacy was the news of Justice Ginsburg’s operation and Michael Moore’s reaction:
“First thought:” Moore tweeted.  “She was seen at the Yiddish version of ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ in NYC last week.  She’s gonna be fine.”
Then he wrote, “Second thought: HOLYMOTHEROFRBG!!EVERYBODY, RIGHT THIS SECOND, JOIN A MOVEMENT, CAMPAIGN, GRASS ROOTS GROUP — WHATEVER — AND WORK NONSTOP BTWN RIGHT NOW & NOV 2020!”
I’m surprised that Mr. Moore didn’t tell Justice Ginsburg to get a second opinion in Cuba.
Sorry, but this is no longer about policy or opinions.  This is about people going crazy.
I wonder what roof they will jump from the night President Trump is re-elected!

At least Cuban higher education admits it is propaganda

Image result for fidel castro propaganda cartoons
For years, we’ve known that Cuba’s education is all about brainwashing students.  In other words, it’s the revolution first, and always first.
new report by independent journalists confirms it:    
A few weeks after the dismissal of Professor Omara Ruiz Urquiola, Cuba’s Deputy Minister of Higher Education (MES), Martha del Carmen Mesa Valenciano, has been given the task of defining the attitude a university professor should have. Her criterion has the merit of clarity since, according to her, teachers in higher education have to behave as activists of “revolutionary politics” of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC).
In a text published on the official page of the MES, the official refers to the case of Ruiz Urquiola without mentioning her name. Mesa Valenciano acknowledges that the professor’s complaint, which circulated in social networks, motivated her to “take a tour” of Cuban higher education and make clear the official position regarding teachers.
“You are a university professor in order teach timely, constructive, contributing and supportive criticism and to build a better society together,” says the Deputy Minister, for whom “the wrong procedures, the bad actions of cadres, officials, leaders must be fought against,” without confusing these criticisms “with disrespect or with positions contrary to ‘revolutionary principles’.”
Mesa Valenciano cites the case of another professor, again without citing his name, who, in her opinion, “initiated a strong criticism of the decisions of the” Cuban leaders, “without perceiving that, with his irresponsible behavior in the comprehensive education of his students he confused them and showed them a wrong path.”
There it is!  No disrespect for revolutionary principles!
Again, this is not new for any of us familiar with Cuba or what public education has been and is.  It is a simply a way of teaching students whatever the dictatorship wants them to learn.
So remember the next time that someone tells you that they have free education in Cuba.   Yes, it’s free as long as you learn what the regime wants you to learn.

Call it Republican Derangement ‘Dancing’ Syndrome

Image result for trump derangement syndrome images
For the record, I have not watched people dance on TV since my brother, sister and I used to tune in to catch “American Bandstand” or “Soul Train.”  
I guess that those were the days when nobody cared about the politics of the fellow or girl dancing.  We just appreciated their moves.
Trump Derangment Syndrome has another version and it goes like this:   
In case you missed it: former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer is going to be on the next season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars,” which can be a good or a bad thing, depending on how seriously one takes goofy network television fare.
Democrats all across the land are having yet another foot-stomping, snot-bubbling, toddler-esque meltdown, this time because a Republican guy they don’t like is going to be on a television show they’ve never watched.
Are you kidding me?  Some are even talking of a boycott!  A boycott because a GOP man is going to dance with a girl on the set?
Like the left calling Trump a racist every day, talk of this “boycott” is the kind of nonsense that makes the other side look silly and stupid.

From Russia to racism?

Image result for trump racist cartoons
The Mueller report seems like ages ago.   Does anyone remember that we spent two years, and millions of dollars, looking for collusion and found none?
Well, the left has now found their new “Mueller”: calling President Trump a racist, as we see in this article by John Kass:    
Race. Race. Race. Race. Race.
With Americans working and with money in their pockets again, with the 2020 election approaching, Democrats are reaching for the race card the way a sick man reaches for the waters of Lourdes. Desperately. Their allies in media followed suit, with Trump called everything from a white supremacist, to a Nazi, and on and on.
Yes, it’s always the race card when they can’t argue any longer.
The shift to the race card is also an admission that they have nothing to say to the American people, from jobs to health care.
For example, do Democrats have a solution to the ObamaCare premiums?  I was talking to a young self-employed father of three the other day.  He shared with me the Texas premium (and deductibles) and said “I can’t afford this and would rather self-insure or pay my bills out of my own pockets”.
Again, race is all that the Democrats have so expect a lot of it until election 2020.

Maybe they ran the numbers

Image result for medicare for all images

As a young man, and even later in life, I would run to my father with an idea or business proposal.  I’d make the case and then he would always say in Spanish  “Ya hicistes los numeritos” or a Cuban Spanish version of “did you run the numbers”?
Well, maybe a few Democrats are starting to run the numbers and realize that “Medicare for All” won’t cut it in front of real people.
According to news reports, support for Medicare for All goes down when people hear that you are going to take away their private health insurance.   
In fact, the opposition is very clear:       
In a Hill-HarrisX survey released Thursday, 13 percent of respondents said they would prefer a health care system that covers all citizens and doesn’t allow for private plans, an approach that is sometimes referred to as “single-payer.”
The most popular option, at 32 percent, consisted of a universal, government-operated system that also would allow people to buy private, supplemental insurance.
Twenty-six percent of respondents said they wanted a government insurance plan offered to all citizens, but one that doesn’t compel people with private plans to use it, a system sometimes called a “public option.”
It’s amazing what transparency will do to any socialist idea!
My guess is that Senator Harris will forget what she said over the last few years and say that she won’t touch anyone’s private plan.  
Senator Warren will say that Medicare for All is just another way of saying that everyone should have access to health care.  
VP Biden will forget that the Affordable Health Care Act passed during his watch.   
And former congressman Beto will skip the topic and call President Trump a racist.
On one side, poor Bernie Sanders will hear over and over again that his numbers just don’t add up!   
So turns the world in this crazy and unimpressive Democrat primary contest.
