Hillary In The Afternoon

She had to be “sobered up.” Hey, no problem as long as she’s ready for that 3 AM phone call. Let’s make her president!

And then there’s this:

Hillary Clinton has been photographed drinking alcohol on numerous occasions, and has promised to consume a large amount of “adult beverages” if elected president.

She is also, according to reports, reluctant to drink water, a common method used by individuals trying to “sober up.”

See, now here’s where Marco Rubio would clearly have been a better choice.

Syria’s Civil War

It’s over. Russia won:

Putin and his ministers have acted cynically and cunningly in Syria, to good effect for Russia. However, it would be wrong to portray Moscow as strategic geniuses here. It’s much more about the staggering, unprecedented foreign policy incompetence of President Obama and his White House than anything else. Time and again, Obama and his coterie of self-proclaimed foreign policy masterminds on his National Security Council have been bested by the Russians, who view them with undisguised contempt.

And justly so.

Loony leftist blames the party that didn’t vote for the legislative atrocity.

#ProTip: They’re not “liberals.” There is nothing liberal about them.

A Never Trumper

Why he’s voting for Trump:

I am not of the mindset that any vote not for Trump is a vote for Hillary, but a vote for Trump is a vote against Hillary. And I need to vote against Hillary. I need to vote against the media.


As I’ve written before, there are three reasons to vote for Trump (and really, they’re the only ones).

1) He’s not her

2) Unlike her, he can be impeached and removed, and having him in the White House will (finally) rein in the Executive.

3) It will issue a huge F**K YOU” to the Democrat operatives with bylines.

But read the whole thing. It pretty well sums up my own thoughts.

“Only Trump has a chance to bring this country together, and it’s a slim one.”

Bob Wright on the media: “Well, my concern is that they are so ham-handed about it — they’re so obvious about it — that it won’t work.”

His concern is my fervent hope.

Democrat corruption is much worse than Trump.

Why yes. Yes it is.

[Update a few minutes later]

Only one presidential candidate has actually “wielded the sledgehammer of government against personal enemies.”

Yup. And hint: It’s not Donald Trump. Not that I’d put it past him, of course. But he can be impeached and removed. She cannot.

Richard Nixon could only wish he’d gotten Hillary’s FBI treatment.

Yes. But he was a Republican. And for impeachment and removal purposes, so will Trump be.

[Early-afternoon update]

The rage of the Hillaryite bullies:

I’ve been trying to figure out what common trait binds Clinton supporters together. As far as I can tell, the most unifying characteristic is a willingness to bully in all its forms.

If you have a Trump sign in your lawn, they will steal it.

If you have a Trump bumper sticker, they will deface your car.

if you speak of Trump at work you could get fired.

On social media, almost every message I get from a Clinton supporter is a bullying type of message. They insult. They try to shame. They label. And obviously they threaten my livelihood.

It’s what they do. It’s who they are.

[Update a few minutes later]

“One way to bully is to call the other person the bully. Chelsea could be said to be part of that activity.”

As I’ve often noted recently, this is an election in which the worst things that both campaigns say about the other are generally true.

Climate McCarthyism

Wikileaks exposed it, from Podesta and Steyer:

Since the uproar, Pielke has quit publishing about climate change. He’s gone on to become a world-leading expert on sports and doping. He now heads the Sports Governance Center at the University of Colorado, which is housed within the university’s athletics department. He has more than 8,000 followers on Twitter and is an active, maybe rabid, tweeter. “I’m having a blast,” he told me. Working on climate change, he said, “you wake up, it’s the same people arguing about the same stuff. In sports, you have no idea what idea you will be writing about. . . . There’s so much going on. There’s so much upheaval.” What lessons did he learn from his stint in the climate-change discussion? He replied that the debate is “almost religious in its intensity.” Instead of having a rational discussion about the best ways to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, the debate has become solely “about power, about who gets to speak and whose voices are deemed legitimate.” The smear campaign against him by Romm and ThinkProgress was designed “to make public speech costly.”

The lawsuit against me and others is mentioned as well. What fascists these people are.
