"Wall of Denial" -Stevie Ray Vaughan

A wall of denial
Is fallin' down
Wo it's fallin' so hard
Down to the ground
Never knew something so strong
Could be washed away by tears
But this wall of denial
Was just built on fear

We've all had our demons
From the garden of white lies
Dressed them amused them
Pullin' wool over our eyes
Go so far as to love them
To keep from letting them go
All the while they we're killin' us
But we couldn't let it show


No matter what the trouble
We carry round inside
We're never safe from the truth
But in the truth we can survive
When this wall of denial
Comes tumblin' down
Down to the ground


Simple things in life
Bring the greatest pleasure
A smile, a kiss
A little baby's laughter
It makes no difference
If we run away in fear
The little things in life hold us so near


No matter what the trouble
We carry round inside
Never safe from the truth
But in the truth we can survive
When this wall of denial
Comes tumblin' down
Yeah this wall of denial
Must tumble down
Down to the ground

By the way, President Trump didn't come out to "Hail to the Chief."

He came out to "I'm Proud to Be an American."

Sandy --First 100-- Daze

It is clear that the music choices President Trump makes both speak to him, and if we are listening, are speaking from him to us. Earlier in the year we listened to his campaign rally choice of music. The Stones' You Can't Always Get What You Want:


You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes well you might find
You get what you need

[Adding to the lyrics MM posted, because, because]
And I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse
Singing, "We're gonna vent our frustration
If we don't we're gonna blow a 50-amp fuse"


Hmmm.

President Trump could not be faulted, but personally, I'm glad he doesn't close with Queen's We are the Champions

We are the champions, my friends,

And we'll keep on fighting 'til the end.

We are the champions.

We are the champions.

No time for losers

'Cause we are the champions of the world.

I've taken my bows

And my curtain calls.

You brought me fame and fortune, and
everything that goes with it.

I thank you all.

But it's been no bed of roses,

No pleasure cruise.

I consider it a challenge before the whole human race,
And I ain't gonna lose.

Although, perhaps PM Theresa May would approve...

WINNING !

Europe has many fine traditions. Its newest tradition is the burning car. Why burn cars? Because, as George Mallory once said of mountains, they're there. There are lots of cars around and if you're a member of a perpetually unemployed tribe that wandered up north and forages on social services, you might as well do something to pass the time.

Burning houses is a lot of work and house fires spread. Car fires are simpler. In a welfare state everyone has houses but not everyone has cars. Burning cars is a way to stick it to those who work for a living. It's also a way to drive off the members of the sickly Swedish tribe and claim the area for your own. And it's also fun.

They wouldn't be burning all those cars if it weren't for Trump, rubes!

Janet ~ an obnoxious Trump supporter 🚬

Here is the Yahoo News coverage (via Vox, Matt Yglesias - a reminder that he was a JournoLister)

"CNN’s Peter Hamby was at National Harbor to watch President Donald Trump’s speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, and he saw audience members waving tiny Russian flags emblazoned with the name “TRUMP.” Staffers seem to have swiftly realized this was a bad look for a president who is under suspicion of a variety of shady ties with Russia, and confiscated them. At the same time, the speech itself really only deepened the questions around Trump and Russia. Then he specifically denounced the whole idea of stories based on anonymous sources."

https://www.yahoo.com/news/m/7c087c4d-6588-30e8-9f67-b00add5d4cf2/trump-fans-were-waving-tiny.html

A Democrat organization works with Democrat operatives in the old media.

Democrats buy Russian flags (red, white, & blue horizontal stripes).
Democrats print Trump on the flags.
Democrats hand them out to unwitting people.
Democrats operatives in the media publish stories about it.

I'd've liked him to keep using the song he used at the very beginning, Dee Snyder's We're Not Gonna Take it Any More. I was disappointed when he changed his anthem from American to British music.

Snyder is a friend of Trump's (from being on Celebrity Apprentice, I believe), and I saw an interview in the early days of the primary campaign where he supported Trump and was happy to let him use the song.

There's an article in The FNYT's archive about the tape that Trump made and insisted be played at all his rallies. I read it a long time ago but don't know how to relocate it.

As part of his discussion with White House national security staff, McMaster recommended a comprehensive reading list that included President Trump's book, "The Art of the Deal," and several other tomes by leading historians about how to get the upper hand on America's enemies. White House staff are said to have been mostly "thrilled" when hearing about the book list.

Moron has the Lefty meme down cold and uses it like a hammer. Googling "Trump is Nixon" brings up 1.79m results. The usual suspects have been belching articles since the campaign, through the inauguration to today.... everything is a Nixon nail when it concerns Repub presidents.

Bang bang, moron.

"Bringing down Richard Nixon was the high point of post-World War II liberalism. The effort united the media, congressional Democrats, and mainstream and far-left liberal groups in a way that had not been duplicated before and has not been since.

It's not been for lack of trying. During the Iran contra scandal, Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee was absolutely gleeful, believing he could relive the glory of the Nixon days and bring down Ronald Reagan, too. The whole "Bush lied, people died" movement," led by Michigan Rep. John Conyers, sought to impeach George Bush for going to war in Iraq under false pretenses. (They also tried to bring Bush and some of his advisers up on war crimes.)

That the left failed to coalesce in an effort to remove these Republiucan presidents was largely because there are a helluva lot fewer leftists than there were in the early 1970s, and they simply don't wield the power they did back then.

But ginning up hysteria over Trump's ascension to the White House has been a lot easier by invoking the dark imagery from the Nixon administration and the prospect that Trump will act unconstitutionally. Of course, the left didn't mind when Obama issued extra-constitutional executive orders, but this is a Republican in office now, which makes a big difference – at least to them.

This deliberate attempt to undermine the new president by comparing him to a president who was accused of criminal acts won't achieve its goal of putting the image in people's minds of Trump and Nixon being equally bad. Most voters today weren't even born when Nixon was president, and even more don't know what he might have done wrong.

But reliving those heady days when the left brought down a president is too tempting to pass up."

MSNBC is saying that Reince Priebus and the FBI guy is the equivalent of Loretta Lynch meeting Bill Clinton on the tarmac.

Meanwhile in his latest Jonah Goldberg excuses Mika Brzezinski's comment as simply "an unfortunate turn of phrase...a simple slip-up," but finds time to damn Trump by strategically leaving out Trump's qualifier which Trump repeated multiple times, "Fake News."

The Press Is Not the Enemy

I would have thought that a guy who wrote a book called "Liberal Fascism" would have been a bit more curious about the Liberal Press's motives. Apparently not. It's not deserving of a click, but nice to see the NRO commenters are not buying Jonah's slant. For instance:

Matthew Peterson · Ithaca, New York

Now if you were to say, "Many journalists have allowed themselves to become corrupted because they are afraid of losing their jobs," you would have the start of a good article. You might then trace the corruption backward to its political sources. You could discuss how many people in our society are willing to trade their integrity for money.

Interesting about MSNBC likening Preibus & the FBI to the Lynch/Clinton meetup. The logical next question to any MSNBC drone would be: "And how much coverage did you give to the Lynch/Clinton meeting? How many reporters did you dedicate to the story? What questions did you ask, and of whom?"

Re RSE's comments last thread;

But I am reassured that when I read Ecclesiastes I read a perfect description of modern man and his same insipid vanities that existed 2500 years ago.
There really is nothing new under the sun in the context that Solomon was talking about; human nature.
Why are progs and Marxists and even anarcho-syndicalists always so cranky and unpleasant? Because despite their best efforts to remake the rest of us in their gargoyle image, man just aint Play Doh in their hands and never will be.
