Skip to comments.Tammy Bruce: Hey, Hillary and Michelle -- I'll vote for who I want to, thanks,

Former first lady Michelle Obama is breaking her silence about a gang of people who did something awful because theyre empty-headed zombies and under some sort of mind-control by evil-doers.
No, she wasnt talking about Islamist terrorists, gang members or cultists. Obamas targets of ridicule and shame are American women who voted for Donald Trump.
Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice, Obama told the audience recently at a marketing conference in Boston.
And what exactly does that mean? After all, the feminist movement was about women becoming free to be able to make choices that best suited us. I dont remember any discussion that our independence really meant we should do whatever Hillary Clinton and her minions told us to do.

I like Tammy. I wish she were more prominent.
Bronco Bama fed her beans from the community garden?
Why is it that women who proudly label themselves (self-describe) as "Progressives" are the same women who classify, denigrate, and deny the intelligence and good judgment of other women in America simply because those "others," out of their own innate intelligence and consideration of the candidates, made the choice of Trump over Hillary?Methinks they object too much! By doing so, they are exposing an underlying flaw of the Progressive ideology which dominates and controls them: Progressivism is cultish and oppressive and demands a conformity and tyrannical activism toward others that is offensive to freedom-loving individuals of all descriptions.
So-called "progressives" of both Parties in recent times, portray themselves as the "intellectual" elite, although they may be totally bereft of any real knowledge or understanding of the great ideas which were the seedbed of Ameria's successful 200-year experiment in liberty.
Today's so-called "progressives," with all of their domination of academia and Far Left politics, seem to fit into a category described in an essay by T.S. Eliot on Virgil:
"In our time, when men seem more than ever to confuse wisdom with knowledge and knowledge with information and to try to solve the problems of life in terms of engineering, there is coming into existence a new kind of provincialism which perhaps deserves a new name. It is a provincialism not of space but of time--one for which history is merely a chronicle of human devices which have served their turn and have been scrapped, one for which the world is the property solely of the living, a property in which the dead hold no share."(Bold added for emphasis)
Without intellectual anchoring in the enduring ideas which provided the philosophical foundation of America's Declaration of Independence and Constitution, their vain imaginations of superiority only expose their limited world view.
Yet, the America which rose from obscurity to greatness, from crude hoes and axes to putting a man on the moon, and from oppression by King George to a symbol of liberty for millions all over the world--that America provides shelter for them, even as they attempt to "change" her into something unimagined by the Founders, and ungrounded in Constitutional principles.
If they are allowed to succeed in their own little provincial experiment, their posterity never will know the "blessings of Liberty" proclaimed by the Preamble to America's Constitution.
Now might be a good time for conservatives to read Dr. Russell Kirk's "The Conservative Mind, which can be read online, by the way.
In Kirk's last chapter he reviews the works of poets and writers, quoting lines which now seem to bear a striking resemblance to the players on stage in American politics today.
For instance, in Robert Frost's "A Case for Jefferson," Frost writes of the character Harrison:
"Harrison loves my country too
But wants it all made over new.
. . . .
He dotes on Saturday pork and beans.
But his mind is hardly out of his teens.
With him the love of country means
Blowing it all to smithereens
And having it made over new."
Yes, the pseudointellectuals who occupied the White House for the past 8 years, the media, and much of Congress fancy themselves "intellectuals."
By their words and actions, however, they display that provinciality Dr. Kirk recalls as having been described by T. S. Eliot (see above) as being one of time and place, having no intellectual grounding in ideas older than their own little experience in dabbling and discussing Mao, Marx, and other theoreticians.
America's written Constitution deserves protectors whose minds are out of their "teens" in terms of their understanding of civilization's long struggle for individual liberty.
It certainly deserves protectors who do not consider it a "flawed" document because that Constitution does not permit the government it structures to run rough shod over the rights of its "only KEEPERS, the People" (Justice Story).
Blasting it "all to smithereens" seems to be the goal of the Far Left and its power-hungry leaders.
Those who have found ways to bypass the Constitution's limits on their power rely on what they believe to be the ignorance of the American people when they assert extra-Constitutional powers. They have been outwitted, however, by an increasingly knowledgeable citizenry who are using the miracles of technology to study for themselves ancient and modern writings on the ideas of liberty versus those of tyranny. As Jefferson wisely observed:
"History, by apprising the people of the past, will enable them to judge of the future; it will avail them of the experience of other times and other nations; it will qualify them as judges of the actions and designs of men; it will enable them to know ambition under every disguise it may assume; and knowing it, to defeat its views."
I wish Tammy Bruce was on the radio around here, I only hear her once in a blue moon when she guest-hosts for Laura Ingraham.
I wonder how much they had to pay her. Every so often there's an effort to draft her into public office and she always says "No way." The good thing for us is that Moose-chelle is extremely lazy, no-show jobs are her bread and butter and that's where she wants to be in life.
I too like Tammy. The only difference between her and I
is that I am a male lesbian.
Many years ago, two queers were walking down Hollywood Blvd, when they passed Jayne Mansfield. One queer looks at the other and says, “You know, it’s times like this that I wish I was a lesbian.”
Me too. I enjoy watching her on Fox & enjoy her tweets. She’s a patriot.
As always another excellent post.
Amazing how little attention that got. Deafening silence.
Abortion advocates define womanhood as the embrace of killing babies.
