The President tweeted Friday evening that he had reached
an agreement with Mexico that will avert tariffs. This despite all the whining and hand wringing of everyone I
saw on the financial news networks for the last week. My thought at the time
was wouldn’t it be interesting to see how things would go if everyone showed a
united front instead of playing Chicken Little. He’s done something that none
of his predecessors have been able to accomplish and he did it in spite of
receiving absolutely no help from the Democrats. In fact, I’d say he did it in
spite of them. CNN
wasn’t happy about the President’s victory. What a surprise. I
liked Don Surber’s comments Trump

Bond guru Jeff Gundlach is taking
a victory lap after his call to use options to play bond market

You know it was an impressive performance by the
President when two of the more pathetic sufferers of TDS are complimentary. Jim

This is an interesting development
in the de-regulation of government bureaucracies, and it is part of a trend nationwide. Good news. The Idaho
state legislature opted to - in essence - repeal the entire state regulatory
Don’t know if you’ve been following this
one. YouTube had de-monetized Stephen Crowder due to a
campaign by a left-wing snowflake whose feelings have been hurt. He ha probably
served to increase the views on Crowder’s YouTube channel geometrically. Funny
how Conservatives are always the ones being banned or de-monetized. As I’ve
said, it’s as if these social media platforms are begging for regulation. Now
it appears that YouTube’s arbitrary enforcement of their “rules” have
a lot of creators worried.
How truly stupid and uninformed are today’s college
students, really? The answer, unfortunately, is pretty stupid and uninformed.
Students at the University of Maryland were asked who they trust more, the Trump administration or the Chinese government. You can
probably guess the results of this poll.
For some reason, Ilhan Omar seems to be getting a
pass from the mainstream media on the
scandals surfacing. Oh, I forgot. She’s an anti-Semitic, liberal,
Somali born Democrat. That clears it up. Despite being a bigamist, she filed
joint tax returns with the man she wasn’t married to. She is also being fined
for campaign finance violations. She’s a disaster and Nancy Pelosi put her on
the Foreign Affairs committee. Scott Johnson at PowerLine has been on this case
for a long time. Ilhan
Omar’s Blizzard of Lies.
Gen. Barr is asking questions the media doesn’t want asked. Well, that pretty much indicates he’s on the right track,
Finding America at a
back-roads gas station. Good,
heartwarming story. I do the same thing a lot when I travel. I
absolutely refuse to stop for meals at the fast food chains along the way. As a
result, I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing some great local treasures in
various small towns. I have to say, one of my all-time great finds was Abe’s Grill in Corinth, MS. If you’re ever traveling on Hwy 72 through
Mississippi, don’t miss it. Abe told me that Guy Fieri had been after him to do
an episode of Diners, Dives and Drive-Ins but that he couldn’t afford to lose a
whole day’s business.
I’ve been meaning to get around to reading this

I get vertigo just looking at this. Plans for a

the top of a 55-story tower in London. No thanks.
I hope she’s right. Margot Cleveland believes that Barr
will be unleashed after release of the inspector general’s report. I’m ready with plenty of popcorn.
Push back twice as hard. Oberlin College, one of the
“wokest” institutions in academia, has been found
liable of libel and slander and ordered to pay
$11 million in compensatory damages. Punitive damages hearing to follow. Award
could reach $30 million. The first rule of hole is that when you find yourself in one you stop digging. Apparently,
Oberlin’s general counsel in ignorant
of this rule.
You can’t be too careful. In
an effort to prevent copycats, the Media has been
urged not to release any more names of Democratic presidential candidates.
YouTube is run by idiots. They deleted

Supreme Court isn’t one big happy family, apparently. The liberal minority is getting frustrated as they see the

This is hard to believe, but, if true, Kim

Sociology has always been a suspect discipline, but
this “research” pushes the limits of credulity. Three Canadian “researchers”
are presenting a paper at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences
this week in Vancouver arguing that the game of Dodgeball
reinforces the five faces of oppression – exploitation,
marginalization, powerlessness, cultural imperialism and violence. I’m assuming
that their presentation will be met with uncontrolled laughter, but I could be
wrong. David Burge had a tweet on about it. Hilarious and I concur.
Good advice. “Before we put a show of unity with
Muslims, let’s have them begin by respecting our civilization and our culture.”
War On The Cross. If you depend on the American mainstream media to
cover this, you’re out of luck.
