Saturday Funnies

Well, this isn’t really funny, but when it comes to this election year there isn’t much to laugh about. Unless of course you are Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. I’m sure they’re both having a ball.

Happy Saturday!

This Is Rich – Democrats Blame Health Insurer For Destruction Caused By Obamacare

Words can’t really describe the audacity of Democrats blaming a health insurer for the destruction caused by Obamacare, a law the Democrats are 100% responsible for. In a normal world this would be big news, but we no longer live in a normal world.

Democrats claimed for years that ObamaCare is working splendidly, though anybody acquainted with reality could see the entitlement is dysfunctional. Now as the law breaks down in an election year, they’ve decided to blame private insurers for their own failures.

Their target this week is Aetna, which has announced it is withdrawing two-thirds of its ObamaCare coverage, pulling out of 536 of 778 counties where it does business. The third-largest U.S. insurer has lost about $430 million on the exchanges since 2014, and this carnage is typical. More than 40 other companies are also fleeing ObamaCare.

The mass exodus will leave consumers consigned to the exchanges with surging premiums and fewer options, but don’t mention these victims to Democrats. They’re trying to change the subject by claiming Aetna is retaliating because the Justice Department is trying to block Aetna’s $37 billion acquisition of Humana.

The 2010 ObamaCare law makes it nearly impossible for non-mega insurers to operate, and a tide of regulations has encouraged consolidation.

Read the whole thing. It gets even worse.

It’s a shame the Republicans nominated a candidate who thinks the government should pay for everyone’s health insurance because of all of those Americans dying in the middle of the street.

So What If Donald Trump And George Soros Are Pals, Never Mind!

I haven’t had much time lately to keep up with all of the George Soros news, I know he’s been funding the Black Lives Matter roving violence movement, among other things. So of course, conservative crusader Donald Trump is probably all over the guy for trying to make America crap.

Oh, sorry, never mind. It looks like Trump and Soros go way back.

Over the years, the two billionaires have had tabloid-friendly professional dealings, teaming up to build one of North America’s most recognizable skyscrapers—and shared billing on a lawsuit over the sale of the most expensive building in New York City.

The two billionaires even palled around one Christmas Eve. None of this means Donald Trump is a covert George Soros puppet. But it’s already given some conservatives pause.

The pair’s relationship goes back more than a decade.

Well, there must have been a point when Trump realized Soros is a bad actor and disavowed him. But no.

A search of tweets from the mogul mentioning Soros turns up zero results. And Trump even once encouraged conservatives to lay off the billionaire.

“Oh, forget Soros, leave him alone, he’s got enough problems,” Trump said at a 2011 Tea Party rally when one attendee yelled the billionaire’s name at him.

“He goes, ‘What about Soros!’” Trump continued. “Let’s talk about somebody else.”

Glenn Beck highlighted the exchange on his radio show and criticized Trump for his glibness.

Trump even nabbed a Team Soros alum for his finance team. (Read More)

But I’m sure it’s okay and we can all trust Mr. Trump to be the champion of all we hold dear. You know, because Soros prefers his gal pal Hillary.

Please, don’t call me names. I know I’m just an uptight conservative who can’t bring herself to shut up, sit down and get over it because I’m too busy clutching my pearls. I should get some counseling so I can bring myself to cast my vote for the guy who is the embodiment of every negative caricature of conservatives and is good buddies with the people who have dedicated their lives to bringing our republic down. Maybe you can send me to a reeducation camp where I’m subjected to nothing but Breitbart News 24/7 until I get my head straight.

Trump Says To Give Clinton The Benefit Of The Doubt

Hey Trump folks, this is what your man said about the Clinton Foundation raking in money from Saudi Arabia.

Trump sounded reluctant to go after Clinton in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, which the pro-Trump host aired on Wednesday.

“We know that gays and lesbians in Saudi Arabia can get the death penalty … would you ever take money from a country that treats gays, lesbians, Jews and Christians that way?” Hannity asked.

“Well you don’t want to do that and if they knew about it that would be one thing and I assume they knew about it, bigly, but certainly they know about it now so maybe they can give the money back,” Trump said, as the crowd laughed at his answer.

“Wait a minute, they knew about it,” Hannity interrupted, “because that has been Saudi Arabia’s practice for years.”

“But you know what, let’s give them the benefit of the doubt. They certainly knew —” Trump said before Hannity cut him off.

“You’re going to give Hillary the benefit of the doubt?” Hannity interjected. “I’m not.”

“You know what, you know what, they should give the money back,” Trump responded.

This is the same guy who had no problem repeating conspiracy theories about his Republican opponents, but wants to give Hillary the benefit of the doubt. Well, I guess it’s nice to see he’s finally decent to someone. Too bad that someone is Hillary Clinton. Oh, and in case you forgot about Saudi Arabia’s record:

Women can’t drive, are told whether they can work, what they can wear. Gays and lesbians are executed. You can’t build Jewish temples. You can’t build Christian churches. Is that the kind of nation a charitable foundation should accept donations from?

Oh, and didn’t most of the 9/11 hijacking mass murdering terrorists come from Saudi Arabia? But sure, let’s just give Hillary the benefit of the doubt, and continue to delude ourselves into believing that this guy is fighting for the things we believe in.

Just as a side note, be sure to read all about Trump’s new campaign chief. What a guy.

Sirius XM Should Bring Back Mike Church

Now that Trumpbart News Service CEO Steve Bannon is going to work for the Trump campaign I think that Sirius XM needs to bring back Mike Church to their early morning line up. If they did I would tune in. I tried Brietbart News for a few weeks but had to move along for obvious reasons. I might listen again on my way to work if they brought back Mike Church, and he’s willing to fill the slot.

I publicly volunteer to resume my duties as morning host on SiriusXM, I have the experience, I have the relationship with the sponsors and most of all, tens of thousands of SiriusXM listeners remain devoted to the Mike Church Show and would follow it back to Satellite Radio; what exactly is there to think about here!?

Come on Sirius XM and the Patriot Channel, make my morning commute pleasant again. Please.

Sorry, I Can’t Get Over My Ability To Think, Nor Should I

Yesterday I read something written by another conservative blogger telling people like me, who have failed to hop aboard the Trump Train, to grow up and just “get over it.” Like we’re all team players who should just accept the leader of our team no questions asked.

I get the argument, the Supreme Court is at risk. Hillary Clinton is absolutely horrible in every way. I get it. Totally. I’ve been there in past campaigns. But this year is different. This year we are being asked to support a progressive guy who is insane. Or maybe he isn’t insane, maybe he is just a Democrat plant put in place to act insane and secure Hillary Clinton’s victory and increase his own brand awareness. I don’t know, and I don’t really care. Plus, I live in New York so my vote for president doesn’t really count, and hardly anybody reads this blog anymore anyway. So no, I will not abandon my principles and “get over it.”

I will not abandon my sanity and “get over it.” It isn’t “Never Trump” conservatives causing him to make gaffe after gaffe. It isn’t “Never Trump” people causing him to fail to capitalize on the daily revelations of Hillary Clinton’s corruption. That’s all on him.  He hasn’t done a damned thing to win us over. Every time I think maybe I could bring myself to vote for him he says something that makes me cringe.

He was going to pivot and become more presidential. He delivered a few speeches from the teleprompter and it seemed like maybe he was going to stop with the schtick that’s turning off so many voters that aren’t already on the Trump Train. Then he went and brought Steve Bannon on board his campaign team, reportedly because his former pro-Russia campaign guru, who is still on the payroll, was holding him back. Bannon, of Breitbart News, whose writers were paid to write pro-Russia articles about the Ukraine situation. Oh and Roger Ailes, formerly of Fox News, is now one of his top advisers. Ailes, who had to leave his job because of sexual harassment allegations.  All that tells me is that I was right all along, that the biggest “conservative” media outlets were in the tank for him from day one.

So no, I will not get over it. Call me a crybaby. Call me a sore loser. Call me whatever you want, but I still have the ability to think. I still have the ability to tell the difference between someone who genuinely believes in the same things I do and someone who is just pretending. I might have lost my party. I might have lost most of the readers of this blog. But I haven’t lost my mind, and I haven’t lost my principles. So maybe I’m not the one who needs to get over it.

This is what I do know, no matter who wins the presidential election, it’s important to have good people in the House and the Senate. So if you’re like me, and you can’t bring yourself to vote for the orange thing, please don’t sit this out. He might be defeated in an unprecedented landslide, but we really can’t afford to let decent down-ticket candidates lose because of this mess. But if that does happen, maybe I’ll do a post telling all of the Trump cheerleaders to get over it. It certainly won’t be my fault, and it won’t be the fault of principled conservatives who refused to get in line.

But hey, tell yourself whatever you want.

A Wee Bit Of Good News For My Community


Last night I told you about how I’ve been kind of on a mission to save the shuttle service from our local mall to the New York State Fair. I’m happy to report that this afternoon they announced that they are going to reinstate the service! It’s nice to know that people can still make a difference, even with something as trivial as this. So my family will go to the State Fair this year, and so will thousands of people in our community. Yay!

I should also add that I was surprised when I first wrote to the State Fair about the issue and the acting director personally called me the next morning. He encouraged me to encourage others to email him, saying he would share the emails with Centro. It looks like he kept his word.

While Milwaukee Burns Obama Golfs

Well, this is the leadership we’ve come to expect over the past 7+ years. Milwaukee is literally burning and President Obama is playing golf on Martha’s Vineyard. Heaven forbid he interrupt his vacation to address the race war waging in this country. It’s almost like he wants this to happen.

Rioting and violence still plague the streets of northern Milwaukee over 48 hours after the death of Sylville Smith, and young black men who was shot to death by a black police officer after resisting arrest Saturday.

Local businesses have been set on fire, law enforcement officials have been attacked and injured, and the National Guard has been called in to diffuse the chaos.

“Where’s Barack Obama today?” Mark Levin asked on his radio program Monday night. “He’s playing golf on Martha’s Vineyard.”

Read the whole thing to find out what else happened this weekend, something that didn’t result in violence, chaos and widespread property damage.

I’m only surprised Obama didn’t come out to condemn the cop who shot the guy who refused to drop his gun.
