American Elephants: Charles Krauthammer: Build the Wall

Charles Krauthammer nails it. As the Center for Immigration Studies says —they are anti illegal immigration and pro immigrant. We have around 4.4 million people who want to immigrate to the United States and become citizens. They are obeying our immigration laws, waiting patiently, and hoping. I see no reason why illegal immigrants of questionable

American Elephants: Sorry for the light blogging. Computer problems!

I’ve been having crashes every few minutes— for days, and I can’t figure out where the problem arises. Working on it. Not fun. (and they’re trying to sell us on driverless cars, and now driverless airplanes. I don’t think so. Besides, most people like to drive —and like being in control ) They will go

American Elephants: Patagonia Pledges Their Entire Business to The Resistance

How interesting that Lefty CEOs feel that their politics takes precedence over any potential customers, particularly at a time when so many retailers are going under because of the online marketplace. The CEO of Patagonia, a maker of outdoor clothing, has announced that she intends to pledge her entire company to the “resistance” movement against

American Elephants: Tucker Carlson Goes All In on DC

I have enjoyed Tucker’s take on all sorts of subjects, but I had not heard him before in a speech, a fairly long and absolutely brilliant speech to the International Association of Fire Fighters. He explains Trump, the Republicans, the Democrats and the atmosphere, habits and situation in the nation’s capitol. It’s not pretty. And

American Elephants: The Y2K Bug, Seventeen Years Later, Still Filing Reports.

Much has been written about the evils of bureaucracy and the administrative state. President Trump is fully on board with that, but his latest effort to whittle down the bureaucracy and the unnecessary and illogical regulation involved provided an excellent illustration. Seventeen years ago, it was believed that at the turn of the century computers

American Elephants: Trying to Make Sense out of a Senseless Day

What an appalling day. We have worried about the Left’s irresponsible language and baseless accusations as calling for violence. Top that off with Kathy Griffin’s severed head, and the Shakespeare in the Park’s Trump assassination as truly deplorable attempts at some kind of poorly thought out dark humor. Do you recall the campaign in 2008?

American Elephants: There Was A Vast Conspiracy to Mislead and Collude By Democrats Who Tried to Blame Trump.

The American media and political establishment deliberately allowed a false story that they knew was false to dominate the political discourse for months. When former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week, he revealed that he had informed important Congressional leaders that there was no investigation underway of President Trump

American Elephants: Lightening the Burden of Excessive Regulation

President Donald Trump has made a good beginning on the immense burden of excess regulation on the U.S. economy and on us personally. Experts believe the cost is close to $2 trillion a year on the economy. Eager progressives believed that the way to fix everything would be strong regulations from the wise elite in

American Elephants: D-Day Through German Eyes

American Elephants: President Donald J. Trump Was Correct in Withdrawing the United States from the Paris Climate Accords

The Climate narrative insists that the globe (the whole earth) is warming (not just regional warming), and the warming that has occurred sine 1950 is remarkable, frightening, unnatural and unprecedented. It is the people’s fault—human impact. We did it with our reluctance to shut down all pipelines and rely on gentle wind and soft, warm

American Elephants: Gohmert: “We Have A Conspiracy Remaining Afoot in the Department of Justice.”

Congressman Louis Gohmert (R-TX) on Fox News Channel “America’s News HQ” on Sunday, said that if anyone interfered with the 2016 presidential election, it was not the Russians, but the Department of Justice. He specifically named former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI Director James Comey. Gohmert referred to Comey’s testimony last week before

American Elephants: A Word for Our Fellow Members of NATO:

You have heard President Trump saying that the nations of NATO need to step up and meet their commitments.

American Elephants: Victor Davis Hanson Explains the 2016 Election

This is a speech Victor Davis Hanson gave at the David Horowitz Restoration Weekend shortly after the election in 2016 and elaborates on all the myths surrounding the election. So it’s all past history, but good to revisit because it helps to explain where we are now and why. Democrats are always ready with talking

American Elephants: If It Weren’t So Serious, It Would Be Funny!

The progressive temper-tantrum is getting really tiresome, but all that kicking and screaming is devolving into some kind of weird suicide pact.  When President Trump rejected the Paris Climate Treaty, which had never been ratified by the Senate, “the states of California, New York and Washington have announced that they will unilaterally and illegally enter

American Elephants: The House Took a Big Step to Fix the Economy Today

American Elephants: The Dakota Access Pipeline Is Now Delivering Light, Sweet Crude Oil

American Elephants: Yes, The Climate Is Changing, Just as It Has Done for Millions of Years.

After President Trump withdrew from the Paris Climate Accords, many lefties seem to be asking “But don’t you believe the climate is changing?” Of course the climate is changing. That is what climate does. You have perhaps heard of the Ice Age when much of America was covered with an ice sheet? Or the Little

American Elephants: Pelosi’s Partisan Pleadings

Nancy Pelosi spoke at a rally in Dallas as the Democratic National Committee launched its “Resistance Summer,” a term that she had some trouble saying. She slammed the Texas law requiring cities to follow federal immigration law that prohibits “sanctuary cities”for protecting illegal aliens from being deported. Clearly, Democrats don’t have any problem with the

American Elephants: Correcting and Adding a Bit

Please notice the corrections to the Climate post, and to the Kathy Griffin Story below. The first was a careless misstatement. The Kathy Griffin addition is apparently just what Lefties do when caught in the act. They don’t do bad or unpopular things, they’re just being picked on because they’re women. Hillary just had a
