Roger Simon Has Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Donald Trump

, , ,


Roger L. Simon notes that Trump is winning and argues that everyone should get used to it and love The Donald. (Roger does like tormenting the lefties.)

What would a Trump presidency look like?

To start with the obvious — flashy. Designer gowns are back at the White House — with extra gold lame and very big steaks at state dinners, hold the kale. Everything Obama is out (thankfully) except golf. Golf is way in as never before. Negotiations will be handled quickly, Trump style. Many will be fired, but there’ll be more jobs in the private sector for them to go to. Iran will be out. Israel in. (Little known fact: Donald has a company over there called Trump Drinks Israel that markets Trump-branded vodka to the Israeli and Palestinian market …I thought they weren’t supposed to drink). Reruns of The Apprentice will be mandated on all cable channels after midnight.

Here’s more…

IN: Hair pieces, Tony Bennett albums (with and without Lady Gaga), cufflinks, New York accents circa 1953, social conservatism (lip service only, sorry), super models, gold escalators.

OUT: John Podesta, microagressions, trigger warnings (they are way out), anybody who doesn’t think Donald is great, anybody who has mixed feelings about Donald, Code Pink, comparative literature professors, John Kerry, John Kerry’s sailboat, the IRS.

Now does that sound bad? Certainly a lot better than we’ve been experiencing lately. So, as we learned years ago from the subtitle of Dr. Strangelove… How I learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb… this is How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Donald Trump.

And as for ISIS, all Donald will ever say to them is, you guessed it, “You’re fired!”

DC Launches Today

, , , , , , ,

Roger Simon and Charles Johnson never got those Ferraris everyone thought they’d soon be driving back when Pajamas Media launched.

PJM, at least, survived, but nobody got rich. Heck, Charles Johnson even lost his good sense, changed sides, and now devotes his blogging activity to defending Warmism, enforcing political correctness, and bashing conservatives. Sad, very sad.

Let’s hope Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller, launching today, proves more fortunate.

DC has been described as intended to represent “a conservative answer to Huffington Post.” Arianna Huffington responded to the launch with a gracious post, observing amusingly that her own Huffpo was founded as “the progressive answer to Drudge.”

The Jefferson Case

, , , , , , , , , ,

FBI agents reportedly searched the House office of Rep. William Jefferson, D-LA, on Saturday evening and last Sunday in connection with a bribery and corruption investigation.

Prominent Repubican Congressional leaders, including former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and current Speaker Dennis Hastert, have criticized the FBI’s conduct, and raised Constitutional objections.

Some of the most respected voices on the right side of the Blogosphere, including Glenn Reynolds, Michelle Malkin, and Roger L. Simon have objected to the position taken by the Speakers.

Our good friends need to pause for breath, and reflect seriously. The principle of separation of powers matters greatly. Congressional immunity from arrest matters tremendously. These principles of Republican government are infinitely more important than the successful conviction of one more corrupt democrat congressman. History demonstrates abundantly that we can survive the culture of political corruption of the democrat party. But free government could readily be brought to an end by the domination of the several branches of the federal government by a single branch.

In recent history, Congress has been far more guilty than the Executive of arrogating unauthorized powers to itself, and attacking the Executive on the basis of trumped up and exaggerated charges. But, it is certainly possible to imagine an aggressive ultra-liberal president trying to remove Congressional opposition by false allegations of corruption. Some of us believe that the House Majority Leader was successfuly removed by false charges lodged by a partisan county prosecutor in Texas.

It is on rare occasions like this, in which political leaders take principled positions, ignoring their own party’s interests, that our faith in our system of government and its institutions is justified and confirmed.

Read the US Constitution, Article I. Section 6 which states:

The Senators and Representatives shall receive a compensation for their services, to be ascertained by law, and paid out of the treasury of the United States. They shall in all cases, except treason, felony and breach of the peace, be privileged from arrest during their attendance at the session of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any speech or debate in either House, they shall not be questioned in any other place.

I think it is impossible to avoid considering Congressional offices as part of the “going to and returning from the same” aspect of Congressional attendance. And the 18th century concept of a felony would apply to what were then commonly capital crimes of violence, not to ordinary bribery and corruption.

Of course, the determination of all this may, and should be left to the wisdom of Third Branch of the Federal Government, the Supreme Court. But, in the meantime, we should be proud that Republican Legislative leaders will defend the rights of their branch of government, even in the case of its least worthy member.
