“…it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa.”
Read. It. All.
Afterall, Bronco Bama just the other day warned Americans not to act too patriotic. Bad taste, you know. Makes the Euros, overwhelmed with belligerent Muslim immigrants, feel inferior.
Steven Hayward, of the Power Line blog, gets it: “My favorite indictment against King George III in the Declaration of Independence is this short passage that applies more fully today than in 1776: ‘He has erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harrass our People, and eat out their Substance.'” Sounds familiar, don’t it?
Celebrate, you say. Whatever for? Well, there’s this from Trump’s new EPA chief Scott Pruitt: “EPA Chief moves to rollback over 30 environmental regulations in record time.” That’s the headline from cBS, which has a copy-editing mistake. Should be “more than 30.” We’ll skip the story which is not flattering for Trump or Pruitt. But that’s fake news for you. They’d have sided with King George III.
Not the white guys who gathered in Philadelphia to sign the declaration. So light a sparkler, eat some watermelon, or a hot dog. Or just keep an ear out for the illegal bottle rockets that will get fired in our neighborhood tonight. There’s still hope for independence.

Following South Korean President Moon’s visit to the White House, gues who’s visiting him in Seoul?
None other than Bronco Bama his own self. This makes the third time he’s visited a foreign leader just before or just after President Trump did. Creepy little mother he is.
Plastic, it seems, is rationed in Cuba. So there’s no toilet seats in even the high-cost restaurants. And, of course, there’s no toilet paper, just like there wasn’t in the former Soviet Union. What is it with Communism and toilet paper?
This revelation comes from “A Tale of Two Cubas,” by Ron Radosh, in the latest issue of The Weekly Standard, which I get in magazine form.
“We saw giant piles of garbage that had been rotting for days. Sadly we saw more than one elderly man or woman picking through the piles in the hope of finding something of value, perhaps some leftover food…You have to be ingenious to make do on $26 a month.”
The vaunted “free” medical care is only for the Communist elite and the tourists…the regular doctors and hospitals…are so short of medical supplies that even aspirin is rationed…[and they] are crowded and unsanitary…”
The pricey hotels and restaurants are owned by the Cuban military which President Trump is in the process of putting off limits to Americans, who may not do any business with the Cuban military, which Bronco Bama’s opening to Cuba had allowed.
Bureaucracy is bureaucracy. If you notice that your restaurant is a little small, Radosh reports, it’s because “The government dictates the number of seats allowed…it began at 12 and has been allowed to rise only to 50.”

Breitbart eviscerates the WaPo’s pretend Jefferson Iftar dinner at the White House in 1805.
“To claim that the very first president to authorize war against Muslims would have hosted a dinner to honor Islam is an absurdity of the first order.”
It’s an absurdity started by—who else?—Bronc0 Bama, the childhood Muslim his own self.
Bronco Bama’s little curtsy (better, I suppose, than a full bow) to the Castro regime is over. No more curtsies without reciprocity, thank you very much. Trump truth bombs, instead.
“For nearly six decades, the Cuban people have suffered under communist domination. To this day, Cuba is ruled by the same people who killed tens of thousands of their own citizens, who sought to spread their repressive and failed ideology throughout our hemisphere, and who once tried to host enemy nuclear weapons ninety miles from our shores. The Castro regime has shipped arms to North Korea, and fueled chaos in Venezuela. While imprisoning innocents, it has harbored cop killers, hijackers, and terrorists. It has supported human trafficking, forced labor, and exploitation all around the globe. This is the simple truth of the Castro regime. My administration will not hide from it, excuse it, or glamorize it. And we will never, ever be blind to it. We know what’s going on, and we remember what happened…
“The previous administration’s easing of restrictions on travel and trade does not help the Cuban people. They only enrich the Cuban regime. The profits from investment and tourism flow directly to the [Cuban] military. The regime takes the money and owns the industry. The outcome of [the] last administration’s executive action has been only more repression, and a move to crush the peaceful, democratic movement.”
Keeps the embassy in Havana for future negotiations. Respects Cuban sovereignty. But that’s all until the Castros are willing to do quid pro quo. See why the globalist, free trade, open borders, EU-loving establishment want to bring Trump down?
(P.S. The Austin daily will now have to renege on its lottery prize of a free trip to Cuba. Heh.)
