    Charles, on everything: Stupidity: Youth: I was a Great Society liberal on domestic issues. People ask me, 'How do you go from Walter Mondale to Fox News?' The answer is, 'I was young once.' Canadians:I don't know about you, but I lie awake nights worrying about Canadian uranium. I know these people. I grew up there. You have no idea what they're capable of doing. If Sidney Crosby hadn't scored that goal to win the Olympic gold medal, there's no telling what might have ensued.America’s favorite pastime:Baseball is a slow, boring, complex, cerebral game that doesn't lend itself to histrionics....

    I don’t know about you but I can’t bear another day of the Left’s posturing, pirouetting and pouting over a border policy that’s been in place since the days of the false light bringer.Instead on this, the longest day of the year, let’s pause to celebrate the light. Wishing everyone an endless summer. And a chance to leave leave your paw prints on the beach.Posted from: MOTUS A.D.

    "We have no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, but the seriousness of the allegations, and the weight of circumstantial information, compel an effort to establish the facts." – Reagan’s October Surprise When an unsecured email server was used to handle confidential governmental communications, Comey found “no clear evidence” of Secretary Clinton’s intent to violate the law, so he concluded that “no reasonable prosecutor would have pursued charges.”When the IG investigated the FBI, Horowitz found “no clear evidence” that the people who headed the Clinton email probe were biased despite their biased comments and therefore concluded that there was nothing a...

At a meeting of National Space Council intended to transfer space responsibilities from military to civilian hands, president Donald Trump surprised attendees by ordering the top US military officer to launch a new branch of the military in space.While the creation of a Space Force has been debated for several years, the move has been opposed by the military, which has instead begun restructuring the Air Force Space Command to better address threats in...

    The quid pro quo of the Swamp: The IG Report shows 300 documented instances of FBI members communicating (off the clock and off the record) with the media. That’s often known as a leak and it’s often illegal. Plus, they frequently accepted expensive gifts from their ‘friends’ in the media as well. Arguably that encouraged them to provide the media with even more confidential information: because that’s how quid pro quo works. That the members of the media are banned from accepting such bribes themselves would indicate they know how effective such “gifts” can be. But when you have a...

    “In 2017, the clock moved from three minutes to midnight to two-and-a-half minutes to midnight. The Bulletin cites the rise of nationalism, Donald Trump's comments over nuclear weapons and the threat of an arms race between the US and Russia. The year was also the first time a fraction was used in the time.” – Wired  By the same time in 2018, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists saw fit to nudge the clock even closer to the hour of the apocalypse: In moving the clock 30 seconds closer to the hour of the apocalypse, the Bulletin of the...

       From Small Dead Animals by way of Instapundit: What’s the deal with Justin Trudeau’s eyebrows??  Paste on eyebrows, seriously? Is that a real thing? And what’s up with all that man-liner? They’re alive! I know eyebrow fashion has cycled between Sharpy thin and boyishly fat, but stick-ums? Not a good look on a world leader.

    Did you know that today was National Rosé Day? “Everyone's going crazé for rosé…it's one of the trendiest items of the past few years.” I hate it when something I like gets trendy** in no small part because the first clue of its going vogue is price escalation. I’ve loved rosé since my college days (and nights) of cheap Mateus Voted best wine bottle candle holder of all time – even better than cheap chianti and Lancers. When the sweet-as-cotton-candy Pink Zinfandel made the scene in the late 70’s the availability or real rosé, even in wine stores, all but...

    I know it’s #FLOTUSFriday, and we haven’t seen Melania for weeks other than the tiny Instagram image sent from the White House Gold Family event last week. But I did see this photo the other day that reminded me for some reason of you-know-who. A Niki de Saint Phalle statue in the garden of Len and Louise Riggio’s Long Island, New York, house  Photo: Nicholas Alan Cope for WSJ.

    Thanks, advocates of the self esteem movement (aka Let’s Make America Mediocre Again).Thanks #MeToo, for solidifying the belief that all women great and small are the same: victims.Thanks Social Justice Warriors, for imposing your standards of “justice” on the world. ON JUNE 5th Miss America announced that it would ditch the bikinis and become a “competition”, rather than a pageant. “We will no longer judge our candidates on their outward physical appearance,” announced Gretchen Carlson (pictured), the chairwoman of Miss America’s board of directors, and a former Miss America (1989). “That’s huge.” – The Economist And that is where the...

It was just 38 degrees at the same time 60 miles due north of here. I double checked and yes, it is June 6th.

    Just when you thought restaurants couldn’t get more pretentious, along comes Vespertine, a “place of shadows and whispers.” A restaurant poised to disrupt the space-time continuum, a self-described “spirit between two worlds,” Vespertine is, according to its website, “from a time that is yet to be.” Sounds like Obama.Vespertine “has its own gravity” and even it’s own musical score which, according to the the Chef, Jordan Kahn, “might be the most important part of the whole experience….” When music is the most important part of a restaurant’s “experience” you’ve failed. Again, just like Obama.And it seems racist as well  Posted...

    Specifically, time has come for MOTUS’s Semi-irregular Summer Sabbatical. Those of you who’ve been around for a while will recall I’ve taken, or tried to take, them occasionally in the past. I skipped 2016 altogether, as the battle of a lifetime was brewing, and last year I had good intentions but ended up posting more often than not as VSGPDJT was under constant assault – a condition we’ve all grown  accustomed to now.So this summer I really do need to tend to various matters on the home front because, as you all know, the chores don’t do themselves, half-done...

    TRUMP ECONOMY ON FIRE: Unemployment now 3.8% (Jobless rate at 18 year low!), and so much more of that 3 letter word: JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! (h/t Joe Biden). Everything Beating Expectations!

Or championing and passing a yuge income tax reduction  – both of which actually stimulated an economy that had languished for the previous...
