History is a harsh mistress?

Look who is mad at DeNiro and the C-worder by Don Surber – “Anger isn’t a strategy,” Frank Bruni of the New York Times wrote.”

“”You’re demeaning yourselves. Many voters don’t hear your arguments or the facts, which are on your side. They just wince at the din,” Bruni said.

Mind you, he does not say he disagrees with their statements. He just does not want them to say it publicly. Democrats need to fool people into believing they are not a bunch of raving maniacs.

His complaint about De Niro saying F— Trump was not because it is unAmerican to not accept the results of an election.

His complaint about De Niro saying F— Trump was not because it is wrong to expose children to such language.

His complaint about De Niro saying F— Trump was not because disrespecting the president is disrespecting the American people who elected him.

No, Bruni’s complaint about De Niro saying F— Trump was because De Niro was too honest about his feelings.

To Trump’s Critics: Where’s the Beef? By David Gayvert – “Never Trumpers across the political spectrum have been hysterically decrying the existential threat the president poses

“Oh, and lest you haven’t heard, Trump is a racist, sexist, xenophobe, homophobe, Hitler, fascist (a word that has lost all meaning in modern popular discourse) and the dumbest man ever to be elected president.

Yet in all of these dire warnings and assertions, precious little evidence for such eschatological claims is ever offered, even as all data to the contrary is studiously ignored. Indeed, the only proof that his critics conclusively, if inadvertently, demonstrate is that they really, really, really dislike the guy.

The Silencing of the Inspectors General by Victor Davis Hanson – “For nearly eight years, the Obama administration sought to cover up serial wrongdoing by waging a veritable war against the watchdog inspectors general of various federal agencies.”

“In 2014, 47 of the nation’s 73 inspectors general signed a letter alleging that Obama had stonewalled their “ability to conduct our work thoroughly, independently, and in a timely manner.”

The frustrated nonpartisan auditors cited systematic Obama administration refusals to turn over incriminating documents that were central to their investigations.

Still, Obama was right in a way: A scandal does not become a scandal if no one acts on findings of improper behavior.

Finding government abuse and doing nothing about it is worse than not finding any at all.

Union suing to stop Trump’s union reforms by Jazz Shaw – “despite fighting for a preposterous notion, the union will no doubt have a large, vocal cheering section among Democrats since they will be perceived as RESISTING Trump. And since they’re filing in DC, they’ll probably find a judge to back them up on the first round. I hope I’m wrong about that, but history is a harsh mistress.”
