Other Voices | Tom Callaghan: Time to Step Up

In sports, when a star player gets injured the coach invariably says “somebody has to step up”. In other words, some player who had a lesser role has an opportunity to show he can do more.

Right now, in the USA, we don’t have a star player. The most charitable thing we can say about the Office of President of the United States is that it’s basically vacant.

We have someone living in the residential quarters of the White House (the “Occupant”). He dresses up with a clean shirt and tie. He slithers about in reptilian fashion and people come to see him. He says things like “we’ll see what happens.” His family dresses beautifully and they scurry around with massive security details. They whisper in the Occupant’s ear and it has nothing to do with anything. Its all bullshit. Nobody knows anything. There’s no there there.

The Occupant doesn’t preside over anything. So, he’s hardly the President. He’s more or less the heckler in chief. He calls his friends and complains about the ineffectiveness of his staff…people who gave their all to him when he didn’t have a snowball’s chance. He sends out tweets in the middle of the night to remind us that he’s a little bit stupider than he was the day before. Continue Reading………..

  1. Try to imagine any executive, in any organization, being effective, when from the day of his announced appointment, even before he took office, he was bombarded with negative press by a media, and by the half of the personnel, that had unabashedly supported someone else for the job, and who were all sure that all they had to do to overrun the decision, was to constantly do everything in their power to undermine him.

    Because, that’s what we have. What is absolutely astounding to me, is that the left seems to be operating under the delusion that if they are successful in pulling off this coup, the half of the country that elected President Trump, is not only going to forget and forgive them, but are going to thank them and be converted to their left wing mindset. That’s not going to happen. It’s going to generate nothing but hate and divisiveness. A lot of it, and at dangerously high levels.

    As much as it hurts to watch, everything I see happening in this country indicates an ongoing cold civil war that is rapidly heading toward turning hot. And, the people juggling dynamite while straddling the camp fire seem strangely oblivious to this notion.

    The left is letting a genie out of the bottle that they are not going to be able to put back in after their wish has been granted. No amount of smug self righteousness will change that fact.

    1. I wrote this before checking the news this morning and finding out that a Bernie Sanders supporter had tried to murder several Republican Congressmen yesterday. I guess it has already turned hot.

    I kindly ask you again …are you a paid touter for the Deep State?

    Snowflake Chirping as usual with no true facts about Trump but we will soon hopefully start to hear some facts about your Hero, Barrack Hussein Obama, whose Egypt, Libya and Syria foreign policy has caused the largest massive migration of Muslims to Europe and beyond which was his 8 year foreign policy to spread Islam throughout the Free World.

    The news Iam hoping for is when the Senate and House start to investigate Hillary selling 20% of U.S. uranium to Russia in exchange for Bill’s $500,000 speeches,Loretta “Tarmac” Lynch covering for the Clintons, Susan “Unmasking” Rice and your Hero himself for the largest massive politization and illegal use of intelligence departments to create his own scandal, namely Spygate: (After all the spying was done remember his queer Executive Order 8 weeks before leaving office in which all 17 intel depts. could share all the illegal info creating infinite leakers for the next 8 years.


    1. Tight, I can’t believe I actually was starting to miss you. I guess I was nostalgic for the good old
      days of Tom Terrific and the Mighty Manfred.

      Then you kind of lost it and I had to put you in the penalty box for a while (Misconduct Major).

      Let me address a couple of matters: 1. Deep State. I was part of the deep state for about four years after law school. I wrote a piece defending Bannon saying the deep state needed to be rolled back periodically. 2. Paid Tout. I refer you to Groucho Marx who famously said “I would never join a club that would let someone like me in it”. I feel the same way about working for someone else. 3. Sharing Intelligence. One of the lessons of 9/11 was that so called “smokestacking” worked against us.
