President met with anti-Tea Party IRS union chief the day before agency targeted Tea Party.
Well surprise! surprise! surprise! Not.
Impeachment –> Trial –> Three squares and a cot.
Rinse and repeat as necessary.
Let’s add a few more:
Firing of Gerald Walpin and other Inspectors General;
Selectively bankrupting General Motors and Chrysler dealerships.
Hey kids, 6 more to go! Lots of fun! Everyone can play!
Our friend Chuck alerted us today to a fascinating story that includes one of our favorite artists, Giovanni Boldini.
His muse, Marthe de Florian, was a stunner. She quit Paris for the South of France in 1939 to avoid the Hun. Even after the war ended she never returned. In her apartment, left abandoned after 7 decades, were found items that included a portrait of Marthe by Giovanni… and his love note. (…and what a portrait!)
“Inside the Paris apartment untouched for 70 years: Treasure trove finally revealed after owner locked up and fled at outbreak of WWII”

With a glance one can see why Boldini was smitten.
For those interested in other works by Boldini, a gallery of his works is here.

It is a Land that the Lord your God seeks out; the eyes of the Lord your God, are always upon it, from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. DEUTERONOMY (11:12)
אֶרֶץ אֲשֶׁר יְ-הוָה אֱ-לֹהֶיךָ דֹּרֵשׁ אֹתָהּ תָּמִיד עֵינֵי יְ-הוָה אֱ-לֹהֶיךָ בָּהּ מֵרֵשִׁית הַשָּׁנָה וְעַד אַחֲרִית שׁנה
(Here is how to pronounce the verse in Hebrew:) Eretz ah-sher Ah-do-nai E-lo-he-kha do-resh oh-tah ta-meed ei-nei Ah-do-nai E-lo-he-kha bah me-rei-sheet ha-sha-na ve-ad ah-kha-reet sha-na

The Won’s pater politicus goes twitchy claiming that his bombs were, like, so totally different that the Tsarnaevs’.
The Won himself, our marginally documented Golfer in Chief, begs today’s grads to “Pay No Heed To Those Worryworts Who Fear that Government May Grow Vast and Then Into Tyranny” blah blah blah…
Winners don’t need to go negative or play defense. They have plenty to fear; the whole damned game is falling apart.
There was something of the Hand of the Almighty in the coincidence of flag-stomping Ayers’ NYT hagiography and 9/11. What a way to launch the third millenium!
Today witnesses the coincidence of the Gosnell trial and the arrests of Castro murder and slavery gang;
The rise of the muslim Brotherhood in North Africa and the betrayal of our Libyan Ambassador and the explosion of poverty in the ME;
The slumping of global temperature curves just as the Left claims the world must be rescued, via the force of government, from global warming;
This Administration in power as security crumbles and the major economies of the world swirl the porcelain.
Not exactly good for the Left’s brand, yeh?
We’re subtly reminded each morning at prayer to give thanks, even for those things that may (at first) seem unfortunate, for if they don’t yield an unpredictable result they may teach a lesson instead. So perhaps we ought to give true Thanks that the most incompetent, bumbling idiot we’ve ever had as President had promised to “fundamentally transform” America. He may well meet his objective, but from the looks of the way this tide is going, it won’t be what he’d hoped.
The Left losing its mojo… it’s a beautiful thing.
