One-Party Government

More Americans want it. Because the Left has succeeded in dumbing down the populace about the founding principles of the Republic. I agree with this:

…since the GOP will almost certainly hold the House — and looks like it’s got a good chance with the Senate — if you want one-party government you need to elect Trump. On the other hand, Trump’s so different from the Republicans in Congress that it would still be divided government, really. Which I personally find more of a comfort than a disappointment.

Yes.

Political Correctness

Without it, we might not have a terror problem at all.

My confidence in the FBI is pretty much zero at this point.

Speaking of the FBI, nothing that Comey says about the Clinton investigation makes any sense. Well, if you assume the fix was in from the beginning (as she told Brett Baier), it does.

From (Democrat, AFAIK) Jonathan Turley:

Of all of the individuals who would warrant immunity, most would view Mills as the very last on any list. If one assumes that there may have been criminal conduct, it is equivalent to immunizing H.R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman in the investigation of Watergate.

Why, it’s almost as though there was no intent to seriously investigate.

This is gangster government, and it will only get worse if she gets into the White House. At least Trump will be more likely to be reined in by Congress (perhaps even impeached and removed).

Good question, from a smart prosecutor: “What more would she have had to do to get you to prosecute her?”

The Safety Of SLS

I have no difficulty whatsoever believing this:

Most troubling of all, the internal assumption at MSFC is that the first SLS flight will have a built-in risk of failure of around 8%. This risk is being “baked in” to the design of SLS in part due to decisions being made at MSFC about software and avionics – decisions that are being made so as to not surface troublesome issues that no one wants to deal with. One can imagine that safety folks at MSFC are nervous.

This is no way to build a rocket folks.

Once you understand that (unlike at SpaceX) the goal is not to build a rocket, it all makes sense.

The FBI Clinton Files

Twenty-seven things we learned from them.

Most of which are indictable felonies. Including that Obama lied when he said he didn’t know that she had a private server. The question is, does the same pseudonym show up in emails to and from Lois Lerner? If so, it’s stronger evidence than they had to impeach Nixon.

Turning the FBI into the White House’s political pawn may be the worst thing about Obama’s legacy.

I’m old enough to remember when the White House was the FBI’s political pawn.

It’s Not Just Big Sugar

A lot of other food producers profited from the demonization of fat. This is the biggest health disaster in history, I think.

[Update a while later]

There is no reason to even consider eating reduced-fat cheese. Same with all dairy, including milk. Low-fat milk is a nutritional abomination.

It’s almost impossible to find whole-milk mozarella, at least shredded. Fage won’t produce a whole-milk Greek yogurt; best you can do is two percent. And Costco only sells fat-free. Fortunately, Trader Joe’s has started selling its own brand, in whole-milk, at a lower price, so that’s our new yogurt.
