In the Wake of Santa Fe, Maybe President Trump Should Take Andrew Cuomo’s Advice

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There’s this big wedding going on over in England as I write this, and for the life of me I can’t figure out why any American gives a damn.  I’m just irritated because I won’t be getting my morning dose of news.

In the real world, there was another tragic school shooting on Friday, this time in Santa Fe, Texas, and all I can wonder is how long it will take before we find out that the Barney Fifes at the FBI had the killer under surveillance but did nothing to stop him.  Being from Texas, I pray we don’t find out he had been disciplined by school officials more than 50 times for threatening and violent behavior, and that the local authorities had been called to his house more than 30 times in the few years leading up to the killings, and also did nothing.

Whatever the facts of the killer’s sordid life, here’s a fact no one can deny:  10 more innocent people – 9 students and 1 teacher – are dead, having been killed in another of America’s “gun-free zones,” which progressives like to keep our public schools, and 99% of those schools remain open targets for the depraved, demented potential killers lurking in pretty much every community in the country.  Failing to note that the killing spree ended only when good guys with guns showed up and took the killer down like the animal that he is, liberal politicians everywhere grabbed the tragedy as an opportunity to score political points, which of course is what liberal politicians do with any good tragedy.

Never one to be outdone in the realm of rank hypocrisy, Andrew Cuomo, who presides as Governor over the peaceful, killing-free province of New York, sent an “open letter” (God, how I detest open letters) via his Twitter account (God, how I detest even more open letters sent on Twitter – the emptiest gesture known to mankind) to President Donald Trump:

Here is why Cuomo’s letter is so vile and detestable – even more detestable than your standard liberal self-serving reaction that inevitably follows tragedies such as this.  The public schools in America are controlled at the state and local levels of government.  The federal government provides funding and a flood of counterproductive “guidelines”, i.e. “dictates” that come with that funding, but the campuses themselves are governed by the states and local officials.

The fact is that Andrew Cuomo has done exactly nothing to protect New York’s school children in his eight years as governor.  New York’s public schools remain wide open potential killing fields just as most schools in the other 49 states in the nation remain.  As one Twitter user responded to Cuomo, “Why don’t YOU do something in the State of NY that is so terrific that the rest of the States in the USA will follow? IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO LEAD!”

Trust me, we don’t want Andrew Cuomo leading other states on this or any other issue.  Talk about the road to ruin.

And what would Cuomo have the President unilaterally use the power of his office to do?  Constitutionally, he could conceivably declare a national emergency and call in the National Guard to patrol every public school in America.  Otherwise, not much he can do on his own.

Imagine the liberal wailing if he took that step.  Literally every person working at CNN would have a case of the vapors for weeks.  John Brennan and James Comey would dictate another 4,000 word piece to the New York Times justifying putting 13 spies in the White House.  The DNC would respond by appointing Louis Farrakhan its chairman.  Dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!

Come to think of it, maybe calling in the National Guard is just the thing to do.  Seriously, why not try it?  Congress isn’t going to do anything.  Governors like Cuomo are just baying dogs who will never take any effective action to protect children.  Why should our airports and every government building in Washington and Albany be protected by heavy security, but our kids are just left out in the open as easy targets?

Go for it, Mr. President.  If liberal heads explode, so much the better.

Just another day in somebody needs to DO SOMETHING America.

That is all.

Liberals Politicize Everything, Especially Sexual Harassment

Today’s Campaign Update

  • The people of Atlanta did the smart thing today with their decrepit, run-down old domed football stadium:  They imploded it.  Hopefully, this will serve as an object lesson to the people of Houston, who keep spending millions of dollars on goofy schemes to turn the Astrodome into a parking lot or a hotel or a park.  Stop the madness, people!
  • Hey, y’all, Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch actually stood for the national anthem on Sunday!  Wait, what’s that?  The game was played in Mexico City and it was the Mexican national anthem?  He stood for that after sitting on the bench while the Star Spangled Banner was played?  Is Marshawn Lynch a Mexican citizen?  No?  Well, did Mexico do something to help him become the fabulously wealthy ignoramus he is today?  No?  I’m so confused.  Let’s move on.
  • Ok, but there is good news today:  Charles Manson finally died.  So that’s something.  The only shame of it is that he got to live to the ripe old age of 83 before it happened.  Better late than never.
  • He isn’t resigning his senate seat over his sexual harassment scandal, but I’m sure you ladies will all be thrilled to know that Al Franken is promising to do “a lot of reflecting” – according to his spokesman – over the holidays.  Because, you know, if he can just lay low and “reflect” for the next week or so, he’s hoping this will all have blown over.  And given that he’s a Democrat, and his buddies at all our fake news media outlets are going to coordinate efforts and talking points with him, he might succeed.
  • Why are any random gatherings of Democrats inevitably such cesspits of sexual harassment? – A woman in New York is charging that Governor Andrew Cuomo looked the other way as one of his employees sexually intimidated and harassed her for years:
  • “In a shocking Manhattan federal court lawsuit filed Saturday, Lisa Marie Cater alleges former Empire State Development Corp. regional president William “Sam” Hoyt got her a job at the DMV and then leveraged it to “manipulate, sexually harass and sexually assault” her.The bombshell complaint — which names Cuomo and Hoyt as defendants — says Cater contacted Cuomo’s office no less than six times but met “deliberate indifference.”
  • In all seriousness, we now have so many sexual harassment charges popping up against Democrat officeholders and Democrat supporters in Hollywood on a daily basis that it has become impossible to keep up with.  Yes, the fake news media is myopically focused on the allegations against Republican senate candidate Roy Moore, but he is without question the exception to the emerging rule that sexual harassment of women, much like voter fraud, is almost solely the province of liberal Democrats.
  • What is it in the liberal male mind that makes them think it’s OK to abuse women?  Do they think that, because they put up the public pretense of supporting “women’s issues” like abortion on demand that that somehow gives them a get out of jail free card when they try to force themselves on the nearest person wearing a skirt?
  • Well, maybe they do.  What is it about the liberal women who enable this kind of behavior in liberal men?  Hillary Clinton has spent decades handling her husband’s myriad “bimbo eruptions”, brutally attacking any woman who charged him with abuse.  When the Monica Lewinsky scandal erupted, Gloria Steinem famously penned a NY Times op/ed piece in support of the abuser, not of the women who wanted to be believed.  Why?  Because, as Steinem admitted directly in her piece, Clinton was “right” on the issues.
  • That was 20 years ago, but this enabling behavior continues in liberal women today.  Over this past weekend, we had the spectacle of the liberal nitwit celebrity Lena Dunham, who has spent the last decade shrieking (she always seems to be shrieking) that women who accuse men of this behavior must be believed, writing a letter in support of the man, when a writer for her TV show happened to be the one accused of harassment.  See, the woman must be believed, unless the woman is accusing someone Lena Dunham likes.
  • And then there are all these women in the fake news media who have been making up excuses for Al Franken’s horrid behavior over the last several days, because, like Clinton, he’s in favor of killing babies at full term.
  • So, what is it in the minds of liberal men who think it’s fine to abuse women, and what is it in the minds of liberal women who want to keep enabling them?  Easy:  Politics.  When you think it through to its logical conclusion, the answer is crystal clear.

Just another day in liberals politicize everything America.

That is all.
