A recess that Nancy Pelosi is going to hate

leave a comment »

Can you imagine what Democratic townhall meetings are like this summer?  The representative hosting the meeting will very likely face an angry mob ready to hang President Trump.  The mob will either say “do something” or “do more” or stuff that we can’t print on a family blog.

We could call it the summer of impeachment, as we see in this article by Adam Shaw:   

In California, Rep. Katie Porter, D-Calif., was immediately grilled about impeachment at a town hall this month. When she said she broadly favors impeachment, she was met by “rousing applause” according to Politico.

“People said, ‘Well, this might be risky, you might not get reelected,’” Porter said. “I said, ‘I am here to do what’s right.’”

In New Jersey, Rep. Mikie Sherrill, D-N.J., faced a more hostile reception when she said she opposes impeachment at this time and reportedly was interrupted multiple times as she made her point. The crowd accused her of playing politics, according to Politico, and threatened her with a primary challenge.

“Don’t be last to speak up. You’ll be challenged,” one woman told her.

And don’t underestimate their ability to challenge you.  Just ask a fellow named Joe Crowley who didn’t take a young woman named Ocasio-Cortez seriously.

Ultimately, all of this will head to Speaker Pelosi’s office.  She will face a very angry mob in her own caucus.  They will get more and more irrational as they come to terms with President Trump’s reelection.   

Nancy Pelosi is not singing “See you in September” this summer.

How can O’Donnell keep his job?

leave a comment »

By now, you probably heard of Lawrence O’Donnell’s “breaking news” story:

NBC News remained silent Thursday morning regarding whether or not MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell will face disciplinary action after being forced to apologize and retract a singled-sourced, unverified report — which bypassed the network’s standards — claiming President Trump possibly had loans cosigned by Russian oligarchs.

O’Donnell admitted on Wednesday that he aired information that “wasn’t ready for reporting” and broke NBC News regulations in the process.

“I did not go through the rigorous verification and standards process here at MSNBC before repeating what I heard from my source,” O’Donnell said. “Had it gone through that process, I would not have been permitted to report it. I should not have said it on air or posted it on Twitter. I was wrong to do so.”

So O’Donnell did not go through the “rigorous verification and standards process”?

Imagine your airline saying the pilot did not go through the “rigorous verification and standards process” and crashed the plane that your family was in.  Or the doctor operating on your relative.  Or the lawyer writing your loan agreement.

By any professional standard, MSNBC should dismiss O’Donnell and make an example of his reckless behavior.

In fact, it could be the best thing that could happen to the media.  It would send a message that sources must be verified, especially if they are telling you something “too good to be true” about President Trump.

MSNBC’s problem is that it’s trained its audience to expect something bizarre every night about Trump.  It’s time for NBC to realize that this is not really a cable news network anymore.

This is what energy independence looks like

leave a comment »

Let me reveal my age and remember that I watched President Richard M. Nixon call for “energy independence” many years ago.  His successors have more or less said the same thing.

It appears that President Nixon’s call may soon be reality.  In fact, it looks like we may be “drowning the world” with oil, according to Nick Cunningham:

The U.S. is still expected to account of the bulk of new drilling and the vast majority of new production, with much of that coming from shale. 

Already, the U.S. is the world’s largest producer of both oil and natural gas. 

And the pace has accelerated in recent years. 

In 2018, U.S. oil and gas production increased by 16 and 12 percent, respectively. 

According to the EIA, the U.S. surpassed Russia in terms of gas production in 2011, claiming the top spot, and it surpassed Saudi Arabia in oil production last year. 

President Nixon must be cheering up in heaven!

“Energy independence” will have several consequences:

First, we won’t have to defend oil fields around the world.  Maybe the Europeans will finally appreciate what all of those U.S. aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf have been doing over the years.  The “oil sea lanes” may look a lot different when bad guys don’t have U.S. aircraft carriers to deal with.

Second, and back home, it will create a boom in jobs in the oil industry.

It’s good news all around, especially for those who remember sitting in gas lines in 1979–80.
