They Clang When He Walks

Via Ace, a little anecdote about the rescue of Otto Warmbier:

When Trump learned of Otto’s condition, he doubled down on the order for Yun to rush to Pyongyang and bring Otto home. The North Koreans were unilaterally informed that an American plane would soon land in Pyongyang and that United States diplomats and doctors would get off. “The president was very invested in bringing Otto home,” said a State Department official who was involved in the case and who was not authorized to speak on the record. “Listening to him deliberate on this, he sounded to me a lot more like a dad.” But, the official said, “we were very scared,” for though the North Koreans eventually said the plane would be able to land, no one knew what kind of welcome the Americans would receive on the ground. Yun explained, “The North Koreans said we could send a delegation to see Otto, but that we would have to discuss some of the conditions of getting him out once we got there.” And so Yun raced to assemble a diplomatic and medical team to save Otto.

After eight longs years with a POTUS who has no balls, we have one whose balls clang when he walks. It kinda reminds me of an old story:

An Apache Indian walks into a country store near a local reservation. The Indian tells the clerk he needs some toilet paper. “Well, we have three kinds, the Charmin is $6.99 a pack, the Angel Soft is $5.99 a package, and the generic is $1.99 a package.”

“What does ‘generic’ mean?” asked the Indian. “It isn’t made by a brand name company, so you don’t have to pay for all the expensive television ads,” the clerk tells him. “That’s why it’s cheaper.”

“The Indian buys a package of the generic toilet paper and leaves. The next day he comes back to the store with the opened package and he is angry. “This isn’t generic toilet paper,” the Indian says. “This is John Wayne toilet paper!”

“What?” asked the clerk. “I’ve never heard of John Wayne toilet paper.”

“It’s rough, it’s tough,” said the Indian. “And it won’t take shit off of an Indian.”

When you are the most powerful nation on the face of the earth, you don’t take shit off of anybody.

That clanging sound isn’t coming from the chopper.

    Sometimes the contrast between that feckless fool Obama and Trump is so stark it’s hard to believe. I feel so very sorry for Obama’s children. To have a father so weak, so vapid, so utterly shallow. What hope have they ever had? Trump’s courage is off the charts. An inspired, inspiring man.

    True story …

    • DeniseVB says:

      I just read the whole Otto article in myiq’s post link. Heavy stuff. I’m convinced Obama killed Otto, because he just didn’t give a sh*t because his parents were Republicans. Oh he put an effort on some of his admin, but they didn’t seem to give a piss either. But hey, Obama’s administration sucked too.

  9. DeniseVB says:

    I’m sure this is an exaggeration, but what the hey, let’s play by the liberal rules !

  10. jenlyn says:

    Speaking for myself I will not go to a movie again. I will rent certain ones and pay to watch them in my home but I will NOT rent or pay one dime for any movie with an asshole in it (director, actor, producer). I also do not watch ANY tv show with assholes or support any businesses that are assholes or use assholes to advertise for them. AND for the record I really detest that Snooopoopy has a tv show and Asshat Bourdain’s reruns show all the time when one had art depicting my president dead on his last album and one wished he could serve my president poison and kill him. Can you IMAGINE the screaming from the idgits if they did it to YoMama? You wonder why children are doomed look at their parents and grandparents. WE MUST DEMAND MORE of others and ourselves. And we must call out bullshit and assholes and not support them.

      I think it is administrative law thus not court worthy until all the admin stuff runs which could take years. I read the “rulz” yesterday and both Brennan and Clapper have violated most of them. Rand Paul suggesting Brennan is crazy this morning on live tv is Rulz # Uno and Paul knows it. Nothing has to be proven it is just a “judgement” and President Trump is the ultimate judgement as commander in chief and chief executive.

      “exploring the mechanisms.” only takes a couple of hours from WH lawyers. Bronco the dick-off is not in office any more. They forget this.

      The day my dh retired from the military, he lost all his clearances. It goes with the job, not a lifetime right. Of course, he didn’t need them anymore, building decks and piers didn’t require them 😉

      • elliesmom says:

        I worked for the ROTC while I was in college. I needed a low level clearance because I had access to grades. It disappeared when I left the job, but it was easy for the first company I worked for to have it re-instated. All of the investigative stuff they do had already been done. They just verified the legal name change because I had married. I worked for a company that made computer chips, and some of them had military uses. I turned a couple of the disks that had defective chips for Capehart stereos on them into earrings and wore them out of the building. No one even questioned me. Security was really tight.

      So many lefties counting on that House and Senate Flip from 2010. But that was the Tea Party effect. Then they were crushed by 2012 because Obama weaponized the IRS which dried up the grassroots. I see the #WalkAway effect in gear now. It could be a Red Tsunami this November 😉

      • DandyTIger says:

        I kind of think the Dems will gain seats in the house and lose seats in the Senate. So not a blue nor red wave. How many seats in the house the Dems get is the big question. I’m thinking they don’t get enough to turn it. But we’ll see.

        • mothy2017 says:

          I want casey to lose so much. I have contacted his office many times over the years. Never even an acknowledgement. Recently he replied with a very long detailed missive about daca. He’s running tons of ads during jeopardy in western PA. They are Trump light commercials.

          Loathe him.

  14. DeniseVB says:

    Never a dull moment 🙂

  15. Venus E. Lee says:

    Note how subtitle of GQ article states what Otto went through was ‘worse than anyone knew.’

    Well, yes motherfuckers, since you ignored the story the entire time Obama was POTUS, no one knew what he went through, God rest his sweet soul.

      Many years ago, in hopes of keeping fast food restaurants out of town, Concord, MA banned paper plates and cups and plastic cutlery from restaurants. A Papa Gino’s pizza still built a restaurant. They used “real” dishes inside the restaurant and used a lot of water cleaning them and sold their takeout pizzas without any tools for eating them. Instead of McDonalds, the Concordians got fast food chain sub shops. Sandwiches came in waxed paper wrappers, and soda or water in plastic bottles. The businesses in San Francisco will find a workaround for the straws. It will cost them more, but they’ll just pass the cost onto customers.

      • Lulu says:

        After the plastic stink over straws I went into my “stuff” closet and found a set of eight stainless steel straws. I think they are from the 50’s or 60’s when everything was being made out of stainless or chrome. They can be sterilized. LOL. They came from mom’s kitchen/dining cache and I have no idea where they came from. I suspect they will be de rigueur if disposables are outlawed. I also have the stainless/chrome cake bell and plate that is built like a tank.

      It was discussed on Laura’s show, then she had Rudy on her show. Just another opportunity for the left to go nuts. They are so good at it.

    So funny to watch the progs. They’ve got Trump this time for sure. They really mean it this time. So sad for them.

    • lyn says:

      Why do progs have no problem with people who break the law?

      • Lulu says:

        Laws are for the “lessers”. By being a Prog they are automatically a “superior”. They are good, rules don’t apply, nor does higher thinking such as cause and effect and This is how you got Trump. Breaking attorney/client priveledge will never affect them adversely such as getting rid of the filibuster in the Senate. All good for Progs. /s

      Russia, no angels, have been a convenient punching bag for third rate hacks in the US for a long time. How are they ever going to be part of the world community if they are forever on the shit list of opportunist pols and war monger ideologues like John McCain who is conveniently dying with his poisonous aggressive trash talk hopefully. How does Russia get past that hump and join the world community. It sounds so dated and stupid coming out of the hacks mouths now. Manage Russia with carrots and sticks. Bring them along. Like the Norks.

    Thank you so very, very much for the heads up on President Trumps speech at the VFW convention.
    As usual, the propaganda corps made NO mention of this let alone any sound bites or video.
    Folks, brew a pot of coffee, Irish it up a bit, sit back and listen to a PRESIDENT!

      As Dopey Cortez follows Bernie around like a baby duck on a world tour as his opening act who doesn’t think of her as a tween “girl” as idiocies flow forth from her misinformed and limited IQ mouth. Bernie is grinning like a fiend in most of the photos of them together having such a sweet little commie helper. I would call her a baby Fidel.

      That CNN guy is one of the ones used to “launder” the piss dossier to get it in the FISA warrant. He is a Fusion GPS operative stooge. Congressman Nunes has seen the Fusion GPS bank records and knows how much they paid this loon to feed it to CNN who still employs him.

      After Hope and Change and Youthful Black Professor Jesus Bronco it is a relief to have a mature (age with wrinkles! and middle-aged spread!), normal talking, imperfect, HUMAN, non-haloed, guy’s guy, as prezzie. We don’t have to worship him, we can laugh at his gaffs and off color jokes, and his “game” is our game. He uses short blunt to the point tweets instead of long, boring, hectoring blah-blahs to shame and blame. Blessed relief is Trump.

        It’s called a “New York mouth” lol. It’s pretty busy here so we get straight to the point with an economy of words that anyone can understand what we are talking about. Then on to the next. It’s the same principle as advertising/branding tag lines.

    With republicans acting like democrats, things in Washington look pretty hopeless these days.


    The GOP-run House appropriations committee has voted to restore President Barack Obama’s 2014 catch-and-release rules by deliberately defunding Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ July asylum reform.

    The House Committee on Appropriations voted Wednesday afternoon to bar government officials from spending any time or money on Sessions’ reform.

    “I am proud I went to Vietnam when I did. I am so sorry that I was thoughtless enough to sit down on that gun at that time and the message that that sends to the guys who were there and their families – it’s just horrible for me to think of that.”
