taking the U.S. for a ride

Democrats go dumpster diving for William Barr contempt. Cheryl K. Chumley – “It’s aimed at holding Attorney General William Barr and ex-White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt of Congress for failing to turn over documents that would put Barr in violation of the law

Trump and the Irish. Derry O’Sullivan – “As an Irishman, I’m embarrassed at the treatment of the President of the United States on his recent visit to Ireland.”

“In his meeting with President Trump, Leo Varkadkar’s concerns in this regard are twofold (1) To sort out the situation of the Irish illegals in the U.S. and (2) to keep open the U.S. safely valve to dispose of surplus Irish labour. What is Leo Varkadkar willing to give in return — just a few worthless crumbs?

U.S citizens are simply excluded from working in Ireland, yet Irish politicians want an open door for the Irish in the U.S. This is simply inequitable.

Let me let you in on a secret — the Irish are “taking the U.S. for a ride.” While they are glad to take U.S. dollars, they are willing to give little in return. Indeed many are happy to stab America in the back at every opportunity.

Overall the Irish are willing to take much from the U.S., but are only willing to give little, not even begrudging respect for your president. President Trump is addressing with the situation whereby many countries are taking them as suckers. Ireland is among those countries. Perhaps you did not know previously, but you do now.

Catering to the PC mob is going to cost Oberlin College big bucks. Thomas Lifson – “Oberlin remains arrogant

“Oberlin’s trustees need to step up and do a thorough review of the college’s administration’s handling of this affair, which has seriously damaged the financial and reputational welfare of the institution for which they hold legal and moral responsibility. The should – but probably won’t – seek the advice of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni, a group which helps trustees carry out their intellectual and moral fiduciary responsibilities, instead of defaulting to passivity in the name of “academic freedom.”

If Oberlin’s insurance carrier gets stuck with the bill, we can expect liability insurance costs to skyrocket not just for Oberlin, but for higher education everywhere. Insurance companies now are on notice that their academic clients can be held responsible for the excesses of social justice warriors whom they coddle.

Study: Biofuels aren’t reducing gas prices or emissions. Jazz Shaw – “In the end, the only people benefitting from the RFS are the ethanol industry and some farmers in the midwest, particularly in Iowa and Illinois. Unfortunately, they punch far above their weight class politically, so we’re stuck with this albatross around our necks until we manage to elect some leaders who aren’t basically prostituting themselves to Iowa politicians.

Hmmm: Mueller report failed to mention US intel connection for Manafort contact. Ed Morrissey – “If this was the only potential “deception by omission” in the Mueller report, we might shrug it off.

“However, after the deceptive omissions in the John Dowd voicemail that were used to construct a potential obstruction charge, it’s beginning to look like a potential pattern from Mueller and his team. Dowd himself predicted that we’d find more such deceptions by omission. Solomon may well have found the next one.

More, more, and more on Mueller … neo – “Many of Mueller’s targets have incurred enormous legal fees. This is one of the tools of an independent counsel, working for a government with very deep pockets and arrayed against witnesses whose pockets are considerably more shallow.

“It’s almost impossible to adequately cover or even keep track of the revelations that are coming out now; there’s just so much. As I’ve said many times in the past, every single American should be deeply deeply disturbed by these activities. But plenty are not, or even applaud what they did in their Ahab-like effort to get at the root of all evil, Moby Trump.

Trump’s tariffs and Mexico: the Deal … neo – “Glaringly obvious that was the intent and the plan, anyway, to not have to actually implement the tariffs but to use them to change Mexico’s defiance into cooperation on illegal immigrants, particularly those using Mexico as transit from other areas.

“Not all plans are successful, but people should at least give Trump credit for using a certain tactic in furtherance of a strategy—although “giving Trump credit” does not compute with a lot of people.

The jury’s still out, but it looks as though so far this tactic has borne fruit. Remember, the idea was not actually to have to put the tariffs into effect; it was to get Mexico to take certain steps regarding illegal immigrants passing through that country on the way here.

If this entire tariff-threatening approach is successful, I would like to see every single pundit who excoriated Trump for it eat crow.

A person can hope.

Maybe folks are becoming jaded about being taken for a ride? … Still too many who want to ride the whale.
