Attack of the Killer Squirrels

squirrels-rabies


Who or what will the next big shiny squirrel be? Jeff Sessions? The new SCOTUS pick? Something new and unexpected?

Each time that Trump unleashes a squirrel, the news media and the rest of the Left drop everything to go screeching off in pursuit.

Mike Allen at Axios:

The Trump Bulldozer

We can’t stress this enough: Watch closely the specific, substantive moves of the Trump White House. Try to block out the white noise of outlandish statements and unforced errors, and the hyperventilating they provoke.

Otherwise, you miss the big — and in some cases, radical — changes coming our way. In fact, White House officials tell us they welcome what seem like needless distractions, because it allows them to jam through transformative, disruptive ideas and orders without focused public scrutiny of any particular item. (Remember the justified conflict-of-interest hysteria?)

Read the weekend papers, and flick through cable, and the unambiguous conclusion is that Trump’s debut was pretty much a debacle. But was it?

If you examine what he did based on what he wants to do and ignore much of what he says for show, this was actually a remarkably productive start. By the White House’s count, 13 presidential actions in first week tied to specific campaign promises.

No doubt, the fears of his critics are real and could easily be realized. We could see a trade war with Mexico, or retaliation for his ban on people coming from seven Muslim nations, or other leaders exploiting Trump’s inward focus and impulses.

But from the point of view of the president’s brain trust, he’s getting his way, and, with each passing day, more Republicans and outside leaders seem to be falling in line, even as critics rage. This is more a bulldozer than a runaway train.


Ever seen a bullfight? The matador wears the bull out by getting it to charge futilely at the red cape over and over. Then when the bull is exhausted the matador draws his sword and finishes it off.

The Left is wearing itself out chasing squirrels. The best part is that some of the squirrels are imaginary. Maybe that’s what Trump was talking about when he said people would get tired of all the winning.


"Look!  A squirrel!"

  4. The Z Blog:

    All of this points out the underlying reality in Washington. There is the Cloud People Party and an insurgent Dirt People Party. The Cloud Party and its donor class hate Trump and the people he represents. If you look at the funding sources from both parties, it comes from areas Hillary Clinton carried 2-to-1. According to this Brookings study, the 472 counties that Clinton won last year accounted for 64 percent of the nation’s wealth, while the 2584 counties that Trump won accounted for the remaining 36 percent.

    There are plenty of Republicans who support Trump and a surprising number of people in the bureaucracy who know reform is long overdue. Some of the harshest critiques of the state you will hear come from people in the system. There’s also the fact that Trump is proving to be an exceptional political athlete. He has a knack for baiting the media in order to gain public support for his positions. No person has moved the Overton Window further to the right than Trump has done in my lifetime. It truly is amazing.

    Even so, the next year will be about the Cloud Party conspiring to undermine the Trump administration, while Trump figures out how to work around the system to undermine the system. His immigration order is a foreshadow of what is to come. Instead of looking for compromise, Team Trump will go big in order to trigger the political class and their media to overreact. This tends to turn off the public and thus turn the Cloud Party assets into liabilities, as we are seeing with these ridiculous protests.

    At some point, the Cloud People will shift gears, but for now, the game will be Trump picking fights and the establishment going bonkers.This gives Trump cover to do some important stuff, like we see with the H1B executive order. While the Cloud People are wailing about the so-called Muslim ban, they did not have time to notice the order to shake up the visa program Silicon Valley uses to screw its employees. This sort of cat and mouse game is how an insurgent party must use its speed and agility to overcome the establishment’s size.

    UN Braces as Trump’s Detente With Russia Upsets Balance of Power

    For decades, the five veto-wielding members of the 15-nation Security Council have fallen into two camps ­ France, the U.K. and the U.S., referred to as the P3, on one side and Russia and China on the other.

    Just days into his presidency, Trump is upsetting all that.

    I watched Secy Kelly, I am impressed with this choice. After presser, Cavuto said CNN (and I think NBC) were savaging Kelly before presser. About half way through, when they saw how knowledgeable he is, they cut away from presser. The usual, typical, media a-holes. If it doesn’t fit our narrative, we won’t cover it.

          My informal survey of the tri state area in and around the swamp after listing and watching from the sidelines (DC/MD/VA):

          Fed workers living in DC, Montgomery, Baltimore or PG Counties in Maryland: Hate DJT and think he cannot change anything and needs to be removed asap and will go down wearing their pinky pussy hats

          Fed workers in Arlington, Alexandria, Richmond, Falls Church, Charlottesville and near colleges in Virginia: see above

          Fed workers in Loudoun, Prince William in Virginia and Howard & Frederick counties in Maryland – silently rooting for a massive cleanup so the level of toxic is on par with the average nationwide rather than over whelming current levels (EPA never drains the real swamp)

          Fed workers living in most of the remainder of Maryland and Virginia: Drain that SWAMP Mr President. Increasing exponentially in volume starting January 20, 2017.

          Fed workers living in Fairfax and Fairfax City: mix of all the above

            I lived in frederick and it did go red those years including 2008. We even had a repub congressman though i can’t remember his name. He was an old dude. I think he ended up retiring soon after that election.

      I read that the asshat works as a teacher.

      • Mt.Laurel says:

        I read she was a kindergarten/preschool teacher. I saw it multiple places and am hoping it is incorrect. No wonder kids hate school if this is what they see when very young.

      • BAC says:

        Apparently many the teachers in the Bellevue (Seattle suburb) school district wore their Black Lives Matter shirts to work today. The black population in Bellevue is 3%. http://www.kiro7.com/news/eastside-news/some-bellevue-teachers-to-come-to-class-wearing-black-lives-matter-t-shirts/489506878

        • kanaughty says:

          It’s true. There are areas in throughout seattle-tacoma that are very mixed with main minority as asian.

          My group of friends in high school were mostly asian. But my high school was in the lewis and mcchord area so we had a lot of kids with different backgrounds because they were military brats. Lots of them worked on base at px or commissary.

          But from kindergarten to 8th grade i lived in the puyallup district and let me say that i was one of the rare minorities, asian pacific islander. We would maybe have one african american kid in our class of about 90 kids each grade.

          So yeah, pockets of the pac nw have no diversity. But others are overwhelmingly diverse with white kids in the minority. My aunty’s elementary on beacon hill definitely had minority white kids. And when she started teaching in the seventies they had bussing to make the schools more diverse. At some point they got rid of bussing. And by her retirement there were a minority white kids just because the neighborhood had changed to be more minorities. Specifically, asian kids because they came to america with their families and her school had ESL taught for them.

    • kanaughty says:

      I saw this on conservative treehouse and i don’t comment there though. I wanted to share my observation that the teacher had a slight pigeon accent. I have family who live in hawaii still and once you have it, it is hard to get rid of. So my point is that i think she lived in hawaii before settling in seattle. And there is a big hawaiian population in pac nw because way better opportunities for jobs and cost of living then in hawaii. This was my observation since people are trying to figure out who she/he ? is.

    Trump’s Bloodless Coup Against America’s Enemies From Within.

    Flynn, Priebus, Tillerson, Mattis, Sessions, Zinke, Kelly, Coats, Pompeo, Kushner, Bannon, Conway, Pence, and Priebus, among others.

    And then there is of course, President Donald Trump, the architect of this roiling team of male and female alpha personalities who, despite various superficial differences, share one very strong common thread – an unwavering belief that America must once again fight to protect its own so that it can again be powerful enough to do the same for the world.

    Dems delayed Sessions committee vote once again.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Repubs could do their own maneuver. Recess for a short one day break, allowing Trump to put them all in via recess appointments. Then back up the next day. 🙂

      • DeniseVB says:

        I keep hearing about the nuclear option, is that still available ?

        • DandyTIger says:

          That’s already in place (by Harry Reid) for these current appointments. But some committee procedures still allow for delays. There may be ways to get it out of committee to get around Dems.

          • kanaughty says:

            Someone suggested having a repub be an acting democrat for a day? Also i would talk senators in trouble to sit in the meeting like joe manchin or other red state senators. Anyway, it seems like mcconnel could change the rule somehow. But also this just leaves the power with trump. So dems are getting exactly what they didn’t want a more powerful prez not relying on a cabinet.

        • NewOrleans says:

          Of course it’s still available. But it would require a pair of nuts on McConnell’s part to use it and he doesn’t have any.

      • Somebody says:

        I had the same idea Dandy, just recess.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      • kanaughty says:

        Is there a way they can trick them, virtue signal the dems to go to meetings by raging them up a lot. Like trump saying i am just going to sign more EO’s on obamacare then if you won’t let a vote of my nominee. Or is the point that they want to make trump do more all by himself to make him look like a dictator? Dems are rotten. And i don’t see how this gets them votes in 2018.

    Thanks, Obama: Hillary Found A New Reason For Her Loss To Trump
    http://dailycaller.com/2017/01/31/thanks-obama-hillarys-found-a-new-reason-for-her-loss-to-trump/#ixzz4XNBKMDbJ

    • elliesmom says:

      I’ve been thinking about this a lot since Trump won. I don’t think Hillary lost because of what Comey did, or “the Russians”, or because Obama, Bill, or Bernie didn’t support her enough. I think she lost the day she stood up with a self-satisfied look on her face and said she was going to put the coal miners out of work. She didn’t say she was closing the mines or turning our energy green. She specifically said she was going to put people out of work. Because what she said pleased the left, that clip played over and over and was passed around in social media. After 8 years of never going above a 3.0 GDP, the only time a two term POTUS failed that badly at energizing the economy, no Democrat who said his or her plans would put more people out of work and was running against someone who said creating new jobs and bringing other jobs back home was one of his highest priories stood a chance. That’s when she lost the midwest. They believed for once she was telling the truth.

      • lateblum says:

        That may be why she lost the Midwest, but that isn’t why/how she lost me.
        First when she capitulated in 2008 and then in 2012 with her lies #BENGHAZI

      • kanaughty says:

        This sounds right to me. I also think she lost because she was running to be obama’s 3rd term who’s agenda a lot of people hated instead of bill clinton’s 3rd term who’s agenda was about being more centrist and compromising with republicans and more common sense. If she had run as bill’s 3rd term she could have made it her agenda to be open about all power development jobs including bringing back coal and getting rid of certain epa regulations and also fixing obamacare. She also would have stopped all this nonsense pc shit because was also not the most pc guy in the world. She, like bill after some time of course, might have been humble and finally taken responsibility for certain things she did wrong as sos, maybe even benghazi. If she had done these things i would have given her a chance to make her case. But like the taking responsibility thing, that was a thing i hated about obama admin, he never took responsibility for his mistakes ever. This bill clinton 3rd term idea is the reason i supported her in 2008. But inwas never going to support an obama 3rd term ever. He really was the worst president at least in my lifetime if not ever.

  21. votermom says:

    Ok, I sent my email of support to the WH.

    I also included this:

    P.S. Please consider getting a puppy for Barron when he moves to the White House.

    P.P.S. On behalf of Mark Steyn, please make Kinder Eggs legal in the USA.

  22. So I made it to the last day of the month with a few bucks left. I went to the store to buy enough food until tomorrow. They had ground chuck for $.99 a lb. I bought five pounds. As I was leaving the store I thought about it and went back and bought five more. Then I bought ten pounds of beef stew meat for the same price.

    I haven’t seen ground chuck that cheap in 20 years. Lately even regular hamburger is over $3. I came home with 25 lbs of beef. I hope it will all fit in the freezer.

    • swanspirit says:

      I wish I had a separate freezer. I would fill it with bargains like that!, and that was a bargain! The last bargain I took advantage of were chicken leg quarters, a ten LB bag, for $4.24. I bought two, because all I have is the freezer in my fridge, but I would have bought more if i had room, for sure. Good score!!

      • DeniseVB says:

        Freezers aren’t as expensive as fridges, and I bet if you’re a savings shopper, it would pay for itself in no time 🙂 Of course, if space is a problem, we have a half size upright that holds plenty and fits nicely in a laundry room or garage.

      • Lulu says:

        A small chest freezer is less than $200 from Home Depot. I have a big one and a little one. I bought four dozen tamales yesterday that were on sale for 4 bucks a dozen and into the freezer. Cook double and freeze half was my motto with a bunch of kids running around. Meat markets run specials here with “packages” of like round steak, hamburger, bacon or pork chops and with chicken breasts. But you need a deep freeze. If you have a place to put one (even a spare bedroom and you can put a lamp on it) they pay for themselves.

      • blowme0bama says:

        My parents had two large deep freezers, plus a small one. My friends would visit and thought they were survivalists. Dad had an absurdly large (3/4 acre) “hobby garden” he made me work for him in my spare time between my summer job @ 40 hours and my yard cutting jobs. It was so hard, I blocked out just about every planting technique / skill from my memory.

        • blowme0bama says:

          They basically bought nothing but bread, milk, snacks, meat and seasoning. Dad tried slaughtering a pig and a cow one time, but we couldn’t eat it.

          • Somebody says:

            My family was similar Blowme, except we travelled to Alabama and got vegetables from family members that owned farms. In exchange my parents sent their kids there to be free labor during the summer. I was “special”, I got to stay the entire summer. My two older sisters split the time. I have a brother 8 years younger than me, oddly that family tradition ended, St. Penis never had to spend his summers working in the heat.

            My parents also would buy a calf or two every year and a couple of piglets, then family members would raise them for us. My grandmother had chickens, so we never bought meat only bread, milk, snacks and such. Growing up I never realized how fortunate we were. My goodness we ate like kings, every Friday night was steak night per my father’s decree.

          • blowme0bama says:

            No, we couldn’t eat the meat after raising the animals.

            I had to have a summer job from the age of 6 onward. It started with a cash crop of a few rows of cucumbers. By the time I was 13, my dad had expanded it to a half acre of okra. Horrid. I then got a job at a printing shop and was thankful to be in AC. Still had to do some garden work and cut yards for $ in my spare time.

            Brutal work.

            That’s why I don’t listen to any asshole come at me with “white privilege”.

          • elliesmom says:

            We had chickens and a pig. We ate those and the eggs. The cows provided us with dairy products. We didn’t eat them. We belonged to a dairy cooperative. We sent them raw milk, and they pasteurized it for us for a percentage of the milk. I didn’t know what homogenized milk was until I got to school. We had a huge freezer. My mom was cleaning it one day and fell in. She had to wait until we got home from school to help her climb out. We left our big freezer, but nowhere near as big as that one, behind for the kids when we moved. We brought the small chest freezer along with us. It’s great, but even with just the two of us, I miss the big one.

          • blowme0bama says:

            Yeah, we ate eggs from Mom’s chickens. Not the chickens though. Minks ate those.

    • Somebody says:

      99 cents a pound? Seriously? Where? Is it full of pink slime? Did it come from mad cows? Stew beef at 99 cents a pound too? That’s dirt cheap the 80’s are coming back, time to get a mullet Klown!

      • Somebody says:

        BTW after that score Klown you’ll have money left over at the end of next month too because you just cut your grocery budget significantly.

        Do you have a separate freezer? How about a vacuum sealer? You can get a basic vacuum sealer for about $70, well worth the investment. The only issue with a basic one is that you can only seal so many packages and then you have to let it cool down, but you’re retired you got all day.

        I am from there and will be moving back within next couple of years because my family and friends are there. I just won’t ever talk politics with them. But anyway, let me say that i have been so blessed to have been moving around this country since 2006 so that i was able to get out of that bubble mentally so now i can never go back. None of my friends or family will ever talk me into going back into any party platform specifically. And especially not that democrat plantation. I will be voting for the cathy mcmorris rodgers and dave riecherts of washongton state once i get back. It’s all we can do is vote since we don’t side with the lot of them politically and they will try to put us down and embarrass us for our out of the bubble, not following the crowd views, but we still love them since they are our friends and family for so many other reasons. For me when i go back, i just plan on staying with blogs like this to be able to express my point of view. And hopefully we will move to a more rural mindset are like west of olympia, east piece county, eastern or southern washington. Where people love hunting and are more common sense or conservative 😉 in olympia and vancouver i do have more conservative or libertarian leaning cop loving friends and family.
