The Most Absurd News Today?

“Edelweiss” is a Nazi song.  Hey, but the day isn’t over yet 😛


It was written by Oscar and Hamerstein for the 1959 movie “Sound of Music”.  Shame on you NYT’s Maggie Haberman.

    A rampant general Lack-of-knowledge syndrome runs deeply in US media types these days. Sad. It’s flagrant, and they don’t care. SMH.

      WTF have leftists been doing when they call all Trump supporters Nazis?! It’s not our fault leftists are dumb assholes.

    I just realized that Obama was sort of misquoting the Hitler Youth song from Cabaret when he said “the future does not belong to (those who slander his Prophet) ”
    (Tomorrow belongs to me)

  7. 1539days says:

    This is fitting, The media has found Trump guilty of criminal Schadenfreude because he liked it when DNC e-mails were leaked.

  8. Myiq2xu™ says:

    Yes, they are.

    Maybe the band just likes the song?

    • lyn says:

      I want audio!

    • DeniseVB says:

      What was the East Room event ? I just can’t keep up with POTUS today, busy, busy day!

    • DeniseVB says:

      Since when have media begun analyzing The President’s Band playlists? I’ve seen those songs mentioned in other twit feeds. Was that the event Edelweiss was played at too? If so, it makes Haberman look like a bigger stupidhead hack reporter. Here I assumed it was played prior to Barr presser (should have known, the band doesn’t do background music for official press conferences).

    I had no idea the Mueller Report is clearing the way to impeachment, per The Atlantic via a soy boy environmentalist living in the jungles of Columbia. 😛

    I’ve been offline all day. I was gonna ask, “What did I miss?” but apparently the world went crazy again.

  13. elliesmom says:

    I’ve had Fox on in the background most of the day. so I’ve had the whole gamut of their folks on from the Trump cheerleaders to Shep Smith. They all seem to suggest an important takeaway from the Mueller Report is Russian interference in the election was real and serious. What I haven’t heard any of them say is Obama was POTUS during the election and the responsibility for the integrity of our election was his, not Donald Trump’s.

    I am waiting for CNN to suggest that having an [Easter] egg roll on the white house lawn is cultural appropriation.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Reminds me when my son was based in DC and sharing a field office with the USSS. His family got automatic invites to The Roll every year, but because it was Obama, he politely turned it down. The grandtwins were in grade school at the time, I thought he should go with them, what a cool memory!

  15. Myiq2xu™ says:

    FYI: The real Austrian National Anthem is named “Österreichische Bundeshymne
    which literally translates from German as “Eastern Reich State Hymn”

    • Constance says:

      Absolutely Dems will leak it. It would be great if they put something fake in each copy they pass out so they could tell which person leaks it.

    I thought about this the other day. On both 9-11 2001 and the other day in Paris, the CROSS made it through the carnage.

    As far as I know, Edelweiss was written by Rodgers and Hammerstein, two Jewish Americans, for a character expressing love of his homeland in the face of Nazi aggression.

    LOL. LOL.

    Glen Greenwald, just told Tucker Carlson, that he thought that President Trump “broke the brains” of the news media.

    Now back to the election

    • DeniseVB says:

      There’s so much crazy coming from the Dem2020 mob. DNC’s trying to figure out how to whittle them down for the first debate in two months and the dems are screeching DON’T YOU DARE CHANGE THE RULES AGAIN. Polls can’t be trusted and selection by how much funds they are raising sounds like an elite way to buy candidates.

      • elliesmom says:

        Maybe they could have a spelling bee at the beginning of each debate. The last two standing get to debate that night, The first two eliminated have to go home and stay there. The ones in the middle get to enter the bee before the next debate.

    Can anyone report on Madcow? I was tempted to watch, but did not.

  29. Mothy67 says:

    Anyone own a dyson fan? are they worth the price? I hate sleeping in air conditioning (headaches). 400 for a fan????

    • Cal Steno says:

      Yes! We keep one in our bedroom so that in the summer we have air circulation at night but without the blast of air & noise of regular fans. We also use one in the living room because it is quiet.

    • blowme0bama says:

      I don’t own one and I can tell you right now it isn’t worth 400.

    • votermom says:

      we just use regular fans when it gets really hot – there are cheap ones with timers and remotes
      also, if you use aircon, you can keep the air from.getting too dry by using a wet towel over some kind of bucket/pan near the vent – basically have the air blow through the towel

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’m sure when PDJT said “my presidency is over!” he was being snarky as hell. He knew he did nothing wrong. I never saw him break a sweat these past two years.

      • lyn says:

        Little did Trump know his presidency was beginning to kick ass. The quote doesn’t sound like Trump. If he did say it, then it’s proof that he isn’t the status quo pol.

  33. Mothy67 says:

    Might be worst candidate ever

  34. Cisco says:

    Well it looks like “somebody did something to this poor girl”.
    Sharia savagery strikes again.

  35. threewickets says:

    Young Friedrich von Trapp was George Soros.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I would have guessed Liesl’s messenger boyfriend was a young Soros by the way he turned on the family.

      • threewickets says:

        Hm … in the 20th Century Fox film Soros consulted on, it was loosely based on his family’s experience in Budapest during the war. His mom btw was Elizabeth Charlotte Rothschild, though that is not the commonly accepted public narrative. Not sure why Soros keeps that a secret.

      Why do men treat women like children who can’t keep tampons around when they know their periods are coming up?

  37. Dora says:

    Plain and simple. Our president has a way with words. 🙂


    Late last month President Trump met with a group of Republican senators on Capitol Hill. He discussed a lot of topics, but his most memorable comment came when he called Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation “two years of bullshit.”

    Now, the public has Mueller’s 448-page report, and it tends to support the president’s assessment.

  38. Dora says:

    Muslim Rep. Rashida Tlaib hosts another supporter of “Palestinian” jihad terror on Capitol Hill
    April 18, 2019 By Robert Spencer

    There will be many others. Those who think Tlaib is going to stop doing this kind of thing are naive. The plan here is to normalize and mainstream support for the bloodiest, most avowedly genocidal “Palestinian” jihad terror groups. The Democrat leadership, which has already betrayed Israel, will fall in line with alacrity.

  39. Dora says:

    Isn’t this taking tings a little too far?


    Kate Smith’s ‘God Bless America’ Suspended By NY Yankees Over Racism Allegations

    The New York Yankees have stopped using TV/radio star Kate Smith’s rendition of Irving Berlin’s ‘God Bless America’ during their home games because of allegations of past racism in the late singer’s prior choice of songs.

    Elliesmom – I think this is in Rhode Island because I remember he had his “lake house” for sale and asked you if it was your neighborhood, lol. I wonder if he changed his mind, what a lovely view!

    • DeniseVB says:

      OAN is Trump friendly and are gaining a huge audience, especially Fox fans who have something to switch to whenever a whiny liberal’s on a panel 🙂

    • lateblum says:

      Nicole Wallace wouldnt “allow” Jay to read from the document. She continued to interrupt him and was nearly screaming at him. What a circus!

      Why Hillary herself said those who don’t accept the results of an election are a threat to democracy, and she was right ! 🙂 If only her and Bill rode off into the sunset after his presidency, I’m sure they would have had a much better legacy. The Obamas too.

    So in two hours I get to be alone for 9 days as the fam is going to Florida and Tennessee.
    Is 10am too early to start drinking. I need it.
