As Progressives continue to implode before our eyes, political posters keep getting better and better. I have the proof right here.
Hillary Clinton’s sore loser behavior is a direct attack on American democracy. Trump’s tweeting a golf ball meme is an appropriate and mild response.
The media arm of the Democrat party, also known as the mainstream media, is in an uproar because President Trump retweeted a very funny gif that The People’s Cube created, one showing one of his golf balls knocking Hillary down:
Starting this Sunday morning and all day afterwards the world’s most serious and respectable newspapers and magazines (see the impressive list below) have been having conniptions and reaching for smelling salts. Why?
Because Donald Trump retweeted our silly animated GIF.
If you are a regular here at the People’s Cube, you may have seen this meme, which is only a funny metaphor of last year’s elections.
The image is obviously a joke. More importantly, it’s a deserved response to Hillary’s latest authorial effort, What Happened.
Reading the book (or listening to anything Hillary has said since November 9, 2016), it’s apparent that Hillary has never about America’s “gracious loser” tradition. This tradition is not a mere formality. It’s an important part of handing over power in a representative democracy.
Democracies retain their character only if people believe in them. (It’s sort of like clapping your hands if you believe in fairies.) Once people become cynical, the people’s party is over and tyranny steps in. So again, the good loser tradition is not mere symbolism; it is important and meaningful.
Hillary, however, is a very, very bad loser. Here are representative quotations from just the first couple of chapters in her book: [Read more…]
This Bookworm Beat doesn’t have a huge collection of illustrations but what it has are damn fine. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll laugh some more.
I’ve been paying bills and taxes, and plowing through Hillary’s What Happened? — and I’m really not sure which task is most distasteful. All I do know is that I managed to miss one of Hillary’s best moments in the early chapters of her book. You see, when she started in on literary analysis, my brain said “Academic virtue signaling,” and promptly guided my eyes to the next paragraph. Had I focused harder, I would have caught this gem of totalitarianism:
And while I’m at it, here are two more Hillary gems, followed by several other amusing and insightful posters and cartoons:
The frenzy about Trump’s alleged leaks is hypocritical after the pass given to Hillary and, worse, it obscures truly important national security concerns.
How many things are wrong with the progressive left going to Defcon One over the claim made in the Washington Post that “Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador“? I count at least three:
One, the hypocrisy meter just pegged at a new world record as progressives, who saw nothing at all wrong or illegal when Hillary, Huma, and company made an utter mockery of our intel security laws, now find the alleged violation of the same laws in a single, discrete instance to be a “high crime” worthy of impeachment.
Two, this was not a violation of our national security laws.
Three, the people at this meeting were President Trump, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, Sec. of State Tillerson, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak. No one else was in attendance. And yet, news of what happened at this meeting leaked to the press in near real-time. I can see no reason why any of the the people in attendance at the meeting would do so. That is breathtaking. There is a real, present threat to our OPSEC that must be addressed immediately.
Here are the facts as we know them. The purpose of the May 10 meeting was, in part, to discuss civil aviation threats in light of ISIS’s work on developing bombs that can be hidden in the bodies of laptop computers and that can pass the rigors of an airport security check. My understanding is that this involves turning the computer’s lithium-ion battery itself into a bomb. Some of the intelligence that Trump discussed was provided by a foreign source. [Read more…]
In honor of President Trump, I have a yuuuge collection of splendid posters. I know you’ll enjoy them:
I’ve got some great posters for your viewing pleasure, covering everything from politics to culture to national security . . . and more!!
Bill Whittle’s indictment in this video isn’t the Left, it’s the GOP — the gutless, passive political party that purports to represent conservative interests but that will always bow down to their Leftist overlords. After watching this video, read this post, take its marching orders, and get proactive.
I’m hoping that today marks the last day I completely vanish because of work. I still have projects I have to do, but I’m hoping that the time lines will be a bit more temperate. This pace would have been wearing when I was young and is a serious challenge now that I’m not so young.
With luck, I’ll have a good night’s sleep tonight and, tomorrow, emerge refreshed with all sorts of exciting blogging ideas dancing around in my head. Now, the sole blogging idea I have is: “How can intelligent women vote for Hillary?”
I asked one of my favorite liberal Facebook friends “What are Hillary’s accomplishments?” Her reply, distilled to its essence, was: College class valedictorian, wrote law review articles, gave lip service to children’s causes, was first lady in Arkansas, raised a child successfully, was a First Lady in D.C., has campaigned against wood burning stoves, presided over a warm relationship between Obama and Turkey (never mind that Turkey has become one of the unhinged Islamic governments), and is a woman!
In some ways, a vote for Hillary because she’s female is even worse than a vote for Obama because he’s black. Obama had the virtue of being something of a blank slate. Those of us who were paying close attention knew the real story (Leftist, anti-Semite, anti-American, no accomplishments), but everyone else just saw the shiny product. With Hillary, though, everyone knows about her downsides the dishonesty; the secretiveness; the paranoia; the rank, even deadly, incompetence; etc.
With Obama, it was a case “if ignorance is bliss, ’tis folly to be wise.” With Hillary, it’s a case of “I don’t care that I know for an absolute fact that Hillary is singularly dishonest and incompetent. All I care about is abortion generally and the fact that, specifically, Hillary allegedly possesses a vagina.” That’s really what support for Hillary boils down to.
And for those who are thinking “American women really can’t be that stupid, can they?”, the answer is a resounding “Yes, they can!” The mere fact that one of the sharpest women I know forgives Hillary everything, and is willing to elect her to the presidency primarily because she was class valedictorian and raised a nice daughter (oh, and of course, allegedly has a vagina), tells you everything you need to know about 60 years of Leftist brainwashing in America’s schools and her media.
I’m sometimes sorry I wised up after 9/11. If I hadn’t, I too could blissfully contemplate the fact that American women and their whipped men are enthusiastically prepared to hand their nation over to a known crook and incompetent, because . . . abortion and alleged vagina. It’s just sickening.
America’s old Secretary of State is Hillary Clinton. Although she still holds the job, Keith Koffler points out that there’s also a new sheriff in town:
In the past couple of months, Biden traveled to Greece, Turkey, and Iraq, held an important call with President Saakashvili of Georgia, met with a Kurdish leader, spoke by video to the London Conference on Cyberspace, led a presidential delegation to Saudi Arabia, participated in hosting the South Korean President, met with the prime minister of Montenegro, and held a session with the deputy prime minister of Russia.
I’m glad to know the vice president is finally having some fun instead of having to run out to the hinterland of the U.S. and declare how happy he is about improvements in the highway connecting Dayton to Cincinnati. But how, exactly, is this new system working?
Do Biden and Hillary Clinton carefully coordinate their actions? Have they sat down to work our some grand strategy for handling the world? Are their staffs on the same page? How is she able to conduct Obama’s foreign policy when Biden has constant access to the president and seems to have the power to make his own?
Mommy, I’m scared.
