Wedding gifts: What Donald got Harry, but what of the Obamas?

The rabid NeverTrump media were giddy as schoolgirls when the word got out that Donald and Melania weren’t on the guest list to the nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Oddly enough, when the same word got out that Barry and Meeshie didn’t make the list either, nary a whisper from the leftie press.

Despite failing to make the cut, the Trumps still showed class by sending the happy couple the traditional gift American presidents have sent to royal weddings, the official glass bowl of the current POTUS, as reported by Monica Showalter of The American Thinker (and also verified by London’s The Daily Star).

As it turns out, that’s what the Trumans sent Liz and Phil a bowl when they got hitched, as did the Reagans when Chuck and Di tied the knot.

But as it turns out, the Trumps went a step further.

As reporter Showalter correctly cited, Harry and Meghan have asked that in lieu of gifts, to instead contribute to one of their seven favored charities (also verified by People magazine), which is exactly what the Trumps did.

To which specific charity and the amount donated has not been made public, which is the way any charitable donation should be.

Anyhow, Showalter (a crackerjack reporter in her own right) noticed something a bit odd going on with the media on both sides of the pond;

But after all the wall-to-wall speculation about whether he or President Obama would get an invitation, and quite a few in the press thought President Obama would, the press was curiously silent about whether President Obama was just as magnanimous as President Trump. I Googled and Googled, and nada, zip, nothing. If he sent a present, the press is weirdly derelict of duty, because we know that the journalists would have told us about it. The Obamas made much of their supposed friendship with the royals during the Invictus Games in Canada not too long ago. Well, with all that friendship, pretty strange we aren’t hearing about them sending a wedding gift. Given the press’s suckuppery to the Obama clan, doesn’t it seem likely that if they gave a gift, the press would report it?

Nope, the evidence for now is that the Obamas sent nothing. This would be about par for them. They never gave their kids Christmas gifts, for one. And the previous gifts they gave to the royal family have been utterly tacky – tapes of Obama’s speeches on iPods and other junk nobody in his right mind would keep. They aren’t good at this.
You’d think they’d be bigger about it anyway.

Thus far, nothing from the press. Maybe we will hear about a gift sent late, after people start to notice. For now, what a cheapskate.



Fake News: NBC Claims Freed Korean Prisoners ‘Staged’ by Trump

I sometimes get the distinct impression that if President Trump discovered a $5 cure for cancer, the Fake News Media would attack him for putting oncologists out of work.

Case in point: NBC reporter Hallie Jackson just attacked the Chief Executive for “choreographing” a “staged production meant for television” when he and the First Lady greeted the just-freed American prisoners held by North Korea’s Kim Jong-in.

As reported by Brian Flood of Fox News;

NBC News star Hallie Jackson said that President Trump’s wee-hours greeting of the three American prisoners who’d been held in North Korea was a “very carefully choreographed,” “staged production meant for television.”
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland early Thursday with Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, and they were greeted by the president, first lady Melania Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. The NBC News White House correspondent harped on the fact that the event was televised.

“It was a moment of intense anticipation … very carefully choreographed, right? The vice president landed, the president, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and then that plane carrying these three American citizens,” Jackson said on MSNBC. “Donald Trump is a former reality show producer. This was a staged production meant for television, meant for the cameras, meant to be shown and seen here in this country and around the world.”

Obviously, this chick’s never seen the video of Barry Hussein Obama’s Rose Garden glaringly staged event for the parents of Bowe Bergdahl.

Akkow me to refresh her memory;

US Space Force: The must have weapons for the 21st century

When President Trump recently awarded the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy to the Black Knights of the US Military Academy’s (West Point) football team, he seemingly caught the attendees and guests by surprise when he made mention of a possible fifth branch to the Department of Defense, the US Space Force.

In spite of the news wonks all opining that The Donald seemed to have made-up the notion of a Space Force on the spot, Fox News via the “Greg Gutfeld Show” (video seen below) acknowledge that certain members of Congress last summer have voiced the apparent need for a new military service.

Much akin to how the US Marine Corps and the US Navy are co-equals within the civilian-led Department of the Navy, the Space Force (also being considered to be tagged the Space Corps) would saddle-up as a co-equal with the US Air Force under the civilian Secretary of the Air Force.

In the meantime, the Business Insider notes of five rather bizarre weapons systems that our potentially newest branch of the armed forces;

Boeing’s X-37.

First up is the Air Force’s extra hush-hush X-37 Orbital Test Vehicle. In light that the government has never made public as to exactly what the X-37 does, it’s speculated that craft could be used either as a spy satellite or as a weapons platform, maybe even a combination of the two.

The good folks over at DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) have sent the pilotless “space plane” into orbit only a handful of times. There have been five different flights since first introduced in 2010 – the shortest duration at eight months, the longest time clocking-in at a solid two years.

Pretty much the only thing the Pentagon has admitted to the public is that the reusable craft has been testing “an advanced propulsion system.”



Tactical High Energy Laser.

In joint US-Israeli venture, the THEL reportedly is capable of destroying “incoming munitions as they fly through the air.” Does the Business Insider (BI) mean inter-continental ballistic missiles?

Killer swarms from outer space!

Drone strikes launched from space? Not just any drones… we’re talking entire swarms of miniature drones.

While the BI reported on the X-37 as the drone in question, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility of the space plane being its own micro-aircraft carrier carrying hundreds, if not thousands of high explosive suicide drones.

Either remotely piloted or pre-programmed, the mini-drones could conceivably attack anything from mass troop formations, to destroying everything from command, control, and communication (C3) systems, to possibly even anti-air or anti-ship weapons.

Magneto Hydrodynamic Explosive Munition (MAHEM).

It may be misspelled, but the MAHEM system is just that.

According to BI, “[The MAHEM] warhead can be placed on something as large as an ICBM or as small as an RPG and shoots an ‘explosively-formed jet’ of chemically molten metal into (and probably right through) any reinforced or armored structure.”

In his book “American Arsenal: A Century of Weapon Technology and Strategy” by Patrick Coffey, the author tells the tale of Dr. Edward Teller, known to history as “the father of the hydrogen bomb”. As it turns out, Teller is also the father of the Excalibur laser project.

Development on Excalibur began in the 1970s, but kicked into high gear when President Reagan advanced the Strategic Defense Initiative, better known to the public as “Star Wars”.

Long story short, the Excalibur Project consisted of focusing the output of a nuclear explosion into X-rays. A single Excalibur laser could attack multiple missile targets up to thousands of miles distant.

As Coffey noted in his book;

He [Tiller] planned to place Excalibur in high orbit. As enemy missiles left the atmosphere, the Excalibur controller would pick-up the bright plumes of the missiles’ rocket engines. Excalibur’s hydrogen bomb would then detonate, its x-ray lasers would flash for a few milliseconds, and the Soviet missiles, warheads still inside, would disappear.

Patriotic pro-Trumper rips up Mexican flag in the face of protesters

Between the San Diego Police Department, the San Diego Sheriff’s Office, the California Highway Patrol and the Secret Service, the pro- and anti-Trump crowds were kept on separate sides of the main road heading into the area where the border wall prototypes are on display.

However, not all was peaceful as the LEOs (Law Enforcement Officials) kept the two groups at a safe distance, as an unknown number of troublemakers attempted to goad the pro-Trumper contingent.

Reported by the San Diego CBS affiliate KFMB-TV, roughly 45 minutes before the Commander-in-Chief arrived, a car drove directly in front of the Trump-backers waving a Mexican flag.

As the CBS reporter noted, whoever was waving the flag of a foreign nation also happened to drop it to the ground. Perhaps letting his bias show, the Fox network affiliate from San Diego (who shot the video, below), Jamie Chambers had a different take. I’m still not sure how you “snatch” a flag out of a moving vehicle.

Anyhow, apparently considering the dropped flag as discarded property, an unknown Trump supporter retrieved such, and as things turned out, had a bit of a political statement of his own.

At first glance, the Trump supporter appeared to be of Latino heritage, but was obviously 100 percent Rojo, Blanco y Azul.

The patriot exclaimed “F**k Mexico, this is AMERICA!” While a number of other individuals cheered him on, it was difficult to make out that the patriot-in-question was saying.

But he did finish with a hearty exhortation of “Wave the AMERICAN flag!”



Rachel Maddow: The Trump Derangement Syndrome is strong with this one

Rachel Maddow is living proof that liberalism makes you ugly, as seen in the above photo.

And as it turns out, liberalism also makes one dumber than hell.

In a mind-boggling example of the Trump Derangement Syndrome incarnate, PMSNBC anchor-thing Maddow is finding fault with President Trump accepting North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un’s whimper of an “invitation” (Read: “Surrender”) in regards to de-nuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

Only in the fevered, sick minds of liberals could President Trump be demonized in trying to find peace.

You simply won’t believe the patently stupid things Maddow has to say.

Shocking admission: Percentage of mass murders that happen in ‘Gun Free Zones’

We’ve all seen the signs proclaiming “gun-free zones” ranging from pre-schools to universities. But I must admit, I don’t see how the collective IQs on either campuses are really all that different.

Anyhow, in one whopper of an admission regarding the same gun-free zones, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) claims that 98 percent of all mass shootings in the United States actually in one of those feel-good titled gun-free zones.

As reported by Kyle Feldscher of the Washington Examiner, the Bluegrass State legislator appeared as a guest on NBC’s “Meet The Press” where he plainly stated;

Massie said the solution to school shootings is putting more than one armed guard at school or allowing teachers to be armed, adding that “98 percent of mass public shootings happen in a gun free zone.”

Throwing more fuel under the haunches of the anti-gun proponents, Massie added via CNSN.com;

“And we’ve labeled all of our schools as gun free zones. We need to take those labels off, and put our kids in that two percent category of being safe, instead of being in that 98 percent vulnerable category,” he said.



In one of the few instances I disagree with the direction taken by President Trump, Rep. Massie strongly disagreed with the president’s stated intent to raise the legal age to purchase semi-automatic rifles to 21.

It’s already illegal for those under 21 to own a handgun, arguably a case of denying to those legally considered adults, that those between the ages of 18-20 cannot exercising their Second Amendment rights to lawfully keep and bear arms, regardless of barrel length or caliber.

Trump about to gut the bloated federal bureaucracy

America’s morbidly obese federal bureaucracy is figuratively the giant that’s so big, it can’t even tie its own shoes.

Just one example: The Department of Defense has more civilian workers than those actually in uniform.

But in another spectacularly innovative move, President Trump’s campaign promise of a smaller but more efficient federal government is in the works.

As reported by Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner, “President Trump plans to take the huge federal Civil Service off cruise control, ending automatic pay increases that go to 99.7 percent of the workforce, trimming fat benefit packages, and for the ‘worst,’ rolling out his trademark phrase from The Apprentice, ‘You’re fired!'”

Among the changes in the president’s proposed budget:

  • Creation of a bonus pool to reward good employees.
  • An end to so-called “step increases,” pay hikes of 3 percent to 5 percent that 99.7 percent of federal workers get even if they are poor performers.
  • Changes to the overall pay package, with a focus on generous retirement benefits, that align federal pay to the private world.
  • Retraining of employees.
  • Redeploying workers where they are needed.



Bedard also reported that besides decades worth of presidents promising change, “officials stressed that there is bipartisan support on Capitol Hill for the needed legal changes to make the reforms, backing by federal unions and even encouragement in agencies who feel bad workers are rewarded and good ones are ignored.”

Even more good news was reported by the Washington Examiner;

The officials, speaking on background, did not say how large or small they expect the bureaucracy to be after the three-year reform effort, but it was clear that many workers in jobs that private industry has automated will be out.

And it was also clear that the workforce will be younger, mobile and more tech-savvy. Several times the officials noted that the Civil Services was created at a time when secretarial help was key and now higher-educated IT employees are needed.

This can only bode well for the future of America.

The Donald giveth, the Barry taketh away — made simple

Real world vs the world of theory.

I’m sure we all remember the still smoldering dumpster fire better known as the Obama Economy.

All on his own, Obama doubled the national debt more than every president from George Washington to George Bush (an historic first); an anemic GDP that never gained more than three percent (another historic first); unemployment for young black men hovering at fifty percent (yet another historic first), it’s a safe bet that Comrade Barry was in the deep-end of the pool when he should have kept his narrow ass in the shallows.

While the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (aka: “The Obama Stimulus Package”) was suppose to repair infrastructure across the nation, the only thing Obama succeeded in doing was watching $1 trillion evaporate.

And who could forget who could forget such Obama economic miracles such as the fine folks at Solyndra who whistled all the way to the bank after scamming the American taxpayers out of half a billion dollars.

tax-cuts-and-jobs-act-facebook-logo

But one thing I will give to Obama was a painfully slow up-hill battle that Wall Street managed to wage, in spite of Obama’s socialism.

On the day Obama won his first national election, Nov 4, 2008, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 9,625. Fast forward eight years and change when Trump won in his bid for the Oval Office, the DJIA closed at 18,332.

OK… a total of 8,707 points for two terms. Not bad.

But wait. In the fourteen months since Trump was declared the winner of his race, Jan 17, 2018, the same DJIA has nearly doubled (26,115) in what it took an Obama-led economy over eight-years to pick-up.

In other words;

  • During the eight-YEARS of Obama, the Dow rose 8,707
  • During the 14-MONTHS of Trump, the Dow rose 7,783

Should I mention now that female unemployment is at a 17-year low? Or that black and Latino unemployment numbers are now at the lowest levels in the history of unemployment statistics?

No. I’ll let your (increased) paychecks speak for themselves.

Israeli g’ment official: Obama backstabbed Iranian people to collude with Ayatollahs

The ayalottahs and mullahs best friend.
The ayalottahs and mullahs best friend.

While the Obama cuckolds are sniping at President Trump for defending the Iranian freedom marchers taking to the streets, the former Israeli ambassador to the United States and current Deputy to the Prime Minister, Michael Oren, just went public in accusing Barack Obama of kowtowing to the goon squad leadership Tehran, all so the ex-president could secure for himself a place in history by signing a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic.

Oren, himself a former paratrooper in the Israeli Army, is a member of the Kulanu (All of Us) political party, which happens to favor a two-state solution with the Palestinians.

Michael Oren.
Michael Oren.

As reported by The Jerusalem Post, Oren was quoted;

“The Obama administration’s lack of support for the (2009) Green Revolution was part of a pattern in which it did not hold Iran accountable for any provocation.

It would seem it was part of a general approach that began in Obama’s first week in office in 2009 of wanting to reach a deal with Iran at pretty much any cost.”



Oren went on to list a number provocations by the Iranian government that Barack Obama and his administration purposefully chose to turn a blind eye to;

  • The violent crackdown on the 2009 Green Revolution protesters
  • The kidnapping of American citizens
  • Having their missile boats provocatively approach American destroyers
  • Trying to assassinate him [Obama] and his Saudi counterpart in downtown Washington
  • The failure to follow through on a red line Obama imposed on Syrian dictator Bashar Assad using chemical weapons
  • Iranian-backed Hezbollah smuggling massive amounts of cocaine into the US

In the meantime, many of the now-out-of-power Obama flunkies are hammering away against President Trump for his support of the freedom marchers,

Perpetually touting themselves as the champion of oppressed people everywhere, the Obama toadies have made their opinions known regarding President Trump and the Iranian freedom marchers: Shut up and leave the ayatollahs alone;

While it’s glaringly obvious that the Obamabots are neck-deep in defending their ex-boss, that begs the question, why?

Could it be due to Obama’s showpiece of foreign policy is finally being exposed as collusion with the Iranian thugocracy? Even if it means success built on a foundation of the battered and bloody corpses of the Iranian freedom marchers.

Very fake CNN: Fox does ‘disservice’ by telling viewers the truth

cnn-really-fake-news

Leave it to CNN. Only the folks over at the Clinton News Network could actually say with a straight face that the truth is a bad thing.

As reported by The Daily Caller’s Amber Athey, the Fox News morning show “Fox & Friends” cited a recent Rasmussen Reports poll citing that President Trump’s approval rating is within the margin of error (+/- 2.5%) as compared to the same point of the initial Obama term.

As the president responded to the news;

Even the semi-famous chimed in;

But then Captain Bringdown decided to pop-off;

In spite of Stelter’s pouting, the CNN anchor fails to realize that his beef isn’t with Trump or even with Fox News. He needs to challenge Rasmussen Reports.

All “Fox & Friends” did was report the news. All Trump did was to comment on the news as it was reported.

Perhaps this latest temper-tantrum proves why Statler and the rest of his ilk over at CNN are the least trusted name in news.

NY Times Launches Slime Attack on Gen. John Kelly’s Patriotism

Apparently, a presidential Chief-of-Staff sharing the same definition of patriotism as his boss is now a bad thing.

But that’s only if the C-i-S in question is John Kelly, and the president in question is Donald Trump.

In all fairness, it should also be noted that the ones casting the accusatory finger is none other than the paragon of objectivity and fairness, The New York Times.

As **achem** “reported” by Peter Baker of The Times, the writer bemoans that Kelly hasn’t reigned-in Trump to his satisfaction;

For all of the talk of Mr. Kelly as a moderating force and the so-called grown-up in the room, it turns out that he harbors strong feelings on patriotism, national security and immigration that mirror the hard-line views of his outspoken boss.

Imagine that… a man who spent well over 40 years in the Marine Corps happens to be a solid pro-American patriot. Whoda thunk it?

These are the type of men General John Kelly led as
Commander of all Multinational Forces in western Iraq.
