I’m So Old …

… I remember when the Democrat-supporting newspapers praised a plain-speaking president for “giving ’em Hell.” Now, not so much.

OTOH, Jeff Dunetz seems to appreciate a bit of alleged craziness.

In fact, if having a screw loose makes people as successful as Donald Trump was during the past eleven and a half months, we should pray it’s contagious and that everyone in Congress and the federal bureaucracy catches it (and save some of it for me).

I’m So Old …

… that I remember when it was considered good environmental stewardship to cut down a dead or dying tree that was likely to fall and cause serious damage. Now, that is something so uncouth that it can be the basis of a lie about one’s political adversary (or his wife). In their coverage of the fake news surrounding Melania Trump and the Jackson Magnolia, Victory Girls note—.

First Ladies are traditionally the ones who make final decisions about landscaping, which means that Melania did indeed have to sign off of the tree’s removal – but did so after a report from the United States National Arboretum stating that the tree was no longer salvageable. And Chelsea Clinton even thanked Melania for her efforts.

… I remember when the Left was cheering because big shots at Fox News were getting the axe when they were accused of sexual harassment. I also seem to remember that the Left was sure that Donald Trump would be next. Now, WaPo is reporting that the Department of Justice Inspector General says that mishandling of sexual harassment reporting has been “systemic” at the DoJ.

Justice supervisors have mishandled complaints, the IG said, and some perpetrators were given little discipline or even later rewarded with bonuses or performance awards. At the same time, the number of allegations of sexual misconduct has been increasing over the past five years and the complaints have involved senior Justice Department officials across the country.

During four of the past five years, Democrats were leading a highly politicized DoJ.

“We’re talking about presidential appointees, political appointees, FBI special agents in charge, U.S. attorneys, wardens, a chief deputy U.S. marshal, a U.S. marshal assistant director, a deputy assistant attorney general,” Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz said in an interview.

Making a Federal Case Out of It

KPPC, an NPR station in the LA area, reports that they have interviewed the psychologist from the LA Department of Mental Heath who claims to have sent a package of horse manure to the Secretary of the Treasury.

Robert Strong said in an interview with KPCC that he sent the manure to Mnuchin because he believed the recently passed tax plan was corrupt and “brazenly ripping off the American people.”

“What I did, I would like to compare to what Jesus did when he went into the temple and overturned the tables of the moneychangers, who were exploiting the people financially in the name of religion. I feel like that’s what the GOP has done to the American people,” he told KPCC.

Sounds like it’s time for a med check.

The LAPD has handed what started out as a investigation of a suspicious package over to the Secret Service.
