The Morning Rant

"So President Trump has said he is considering revoking the security clearances of a few former Obama admininstration officials and now the Democrats and their media allies are running around with their hair on fire because this is somehow new or unprecedented. And then it comes out that the security clearances of elected officials or government employees are routinely *not* revoked after they leave their government jobs. At this point, normal Americans are asking why, what do they need them for? The answers are not encouraging. The first is that they would need their clearances if the next administration needed to tap their expertise. Really? Successive administations don't bring in their own experts? The next answer is even better, it is because they wouldn't be able to find jobs in their fields of expertise without one. Yes, somebody actually said this. Which was precisely the reason Sarah Sanders gave for the proposed revocations. I actually think there's an unstated reason, and that is the named individuals (Clapper, Brennan, Comey, and McCabe) are actively leaking classified information to the press as a part of an ongoing effort to sabotage and undermine Donald Trump. Now *that* is unprecedented. I don't think that's ever happened in our history, that is, holdovers from one administration going to war against the next one. Naturally, the president wants it stopped. NeverTrumpers like David French and that runty little Shapiro kid need to stop kidding themselves that there isn't an all out war going on right now, and if the progressive guerillas succeed in taking down Trump, then there isn't any TruCon™ candidate they could ever imagine who could survive the next onslaught. And what a horrible thing to have to contemplate: Trump is ousted, we've pretty much lost the silent war and that the only thing standing in between us and a progressive totalitarian regime is Evan McMullin."



Arguing with SJWs


I think Southern made a tactical error when she allowed herself to be baited into giving a definition of 'race'. She should've thrown it back in his face: "Look, you pimply-faced soy-boy, you're the idiot hollering about racism, so why don't you tell everybody here what a race is, since you seem to be the expert on the subject."




Dang It, How Did It Get So Dusty In Here?
