Before I get into the Weekend post, I want to thank KenoshaMarge for her excellent posts this past week while I was off having a magical time at Disney World (and I did – great time with friends and our godson at four different parks. Well, five if you count where the Braves’ play – and won. We also had a bonus evening at Medieval Times – awesome!). Thanks so much, Marge!
While I didn’t get to comment much since we got back to the resort pretty late each night, I did read all of Marge’s posts and checked out some headlines on all the CRAZINESS going on this past week courtesy of the Democrats.
I have to agree with Speaker Paul Ryan – the “Democrats are lighting their hair on fire” trying to make a mountain out of barely a mole hill in terms of AG Sessions and his meeting with Russians while a US Senator on the Armed Services Committee. And he was by FAR not the only US Senator to do so. Democrats met with some Ruskies, too, despite their complete falsehoods to the contrary (and they weren’t the only ones, right Nancy??)
Wanna know who else visited with the Russian Ambassador that all these Democrats like Al Franken, Claire McCaskill, and Nancy Pelosi are all so het up about? That would be none other than PRESIDENT OBAMA, who met with him a gazillion (plus or minus) times at the White House.
So yeah. Maybe these Dems with their hair on fire might want to take a cold shower and chill the hell out already.
But that isn’t the whole story, not by a long shot. Mark Levin notes that we are completely missing the point about this whole Sessions thing. I think he is on to something. From The Right Scoop:
This is crucially important. Everybody’s missing the point. The incredible scandal here is the Obama administration was investigating top officials in the Trump campaign, maybe even Trump himself during the course of the election!
Listen to this from the WSJ today. ‘U.S. investigators have examined contacts Attorney General Jeff Sessions had with Russian officials during the time he was advising Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, according to people familiar with the matter.’
They were investigating a sitting United States Senator who hadn’t done anything? They’re investigating a sitting Attorney General who hasn’t done anything? Based on what premise? The fact that he was advising Donald Trump? Is this not appalling and shocking to you?
No. Kidding. Why aren’t more people asking just why a sitting US Senator who had done NOTHING wrong was being investigated by the Federal Government? That just BEGS explanation. I am not holding my breath for that answer to be forthcoming, but the question deserves to be answered.
Don’t even get me started on those cowardly big babies like Michael Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, and Bill Maher, who had the sheer unmitigated GALL to make condescending, patronizing comments regarding the widow of the Navy Seal killed in action recently, Carryn Owens. And why did they do so? Because she attended Trump’s speech on Tuesday night at which Trump mentioned her husband, Ryan Owens, and that his sacrifice for this Nation will never be forgotten.
Well, I witnessed a standing ovation for a woman who lost her husband serving this great county. I witnessed genuine sorrow and gratitude for Mrs. Owens. I witnessed a military wife that lost a loved one, receive support from the masses in a time of great suffering. Furthermore, I see YOU as the washed up, “my opinion actually matters” douche that is responsible for exploiting her. Do you actually believe people care what you think? I’m here to tell you that the thoughts of a “C-list” actor turned daytime propagandist measures somewhere between a cat turd and a dog turd.
And you feel bad because President Trump exploited her? When have you ever made mention of feeling bad for widows of fallen heroes? When has such a topic ever been explored? ..(O)h wait, it hasn’t been until now where you can fabricate a twisted narrative of a standing ovation for a woman that just lost her husband to try and make a President look bad.
For the record, I carried and buried more friends than I care to mention while Obama was President…I don’t recall you or The View‘s outcry for them and their families. […] (Click here to read the rest.)
Amen to that. Where was the hue and cry then, huh? These people, these big babies who are acting all holier than thou and sanctimonious about the reception this woman, and her deceased husband, received Tuesday night continue to highlight that there really is no depth to which they will not sink. Sad to say, but true.
Now I realize that this is more political than I usually get on the weekends, but these stories were just bugging the bejeezus out of me while on vacation. That and the sheer silence of Democrats when their new leader, Tom Perez, declared they had to fight to make this a one-term proposition for Trump. You know, the very same people who RAILED against Mitch McConnell for saying the same thing about Obama. Bunch of hypocritical whiny babies, that’s for sure.
And now you know why I love animals so much. They are such a respite from the insanity of so much of what is happening in our nation, and the world, these days. Since this is the Weekend Open Thread, and since I have mentioned big babies, I have to share this video of one big baby courtesy of I Heart Horses to get to that whole Weekend thing. It is mighty cute:
Now THAT’S a big baby I don’t mind one little bit! Adorable!
And since watching cat videos is supposed to lower one’s stress levels and just make you happy, considering all the decidedly UNHAPPY news I had above, this seems like a fitting close to this post. Naturally, I’ll have to find some babies – kittens – to do the job. Here’s one for you:
Those are some mighty precious little kittens, aren’t they? I love the one that looks like an owl!
Okay, folks – that’s it for me. Good to be back, and many thanks again to dear KenoshaMarge for keeping the blog fires burning while I was down in Florida playing.
This is the Weekend Open Thread.
