Women Eating Cannoli

 la dolce vita

DaTechGuy had a post from CPAC about Kellyanne Conway and Sean Hannity taping.  Apparently Pete also gave Kellyanne a cannoli (according to RSM).  And Kellyanne loves cannoli.

Some of these pictures below are from Florence. Florence? That is probably a less authentic cannoli than one you might get in New York or Boston (which at least might be made by Sicilian immigrants). Cannoli are a Sicilian desert.

All Gone!

Here's another Sicilian Cannoli Recipe

Sunlight The Best Disinfectant, Bill Maher?

Bill Maher is dick. For him to claim that "sunlight is the best disinfectant" and that his show lead to Milo's downfall is the worst sort of pathetic bullshit. Yes, Milo's critics on the right timed their attack after the Real Time appearance but just before CPAC.  But there was no "sunlight" aired by Bill Maher that led to this. Bill Maher is also a hypocrite.   

I remember when Maher was attacked after his 9/11 comments and the only one who defended him was Rush Limbaugh. If Maher still had any class or integrity, he would be defending Milo (you don't have to agree with someone's politics to defend their free speech).  

The American Spectator: The Mobbing of Milo (be careful what you wish for left)

QUESTION ASKED: “If it’s a fireable offense when Milo says it and it’s ‘horrifying’ when George Takei says it, where’s the outrage over this old clip of Bill Maher condoning sex between an adult and a 14-year-old teenager?

Hell or High Water: A Review

This movie was one of the more pleasant surprises this movie season. Hell or High Water is a very good film.  While not a box office block buster (although it made money), I suspect it will be a classic on television rotation for years to come. Chris Pine, Ben Foster, and Jeff Bridges do a great job. The writing and direction are excellent.

If there was any justice it would win a few Oscars.

Hollywood Reporter: Paglia says grandeur of old Hollywood is gone So is the glamour.  Hard to maintain grandeur and glamour that with stupid stunts that have happened at recent Oscar events. I doubt I will even watch it. If something significant happens, it will be available later on.  

Is it time to take the keys from Grandpa?

This kind of screw up happens more than may you think.  There is also something to be said about not mixing larger commercial aircraft with small private craft at the same airports. Still, this is not the first event like this for Harrison Ford. Yikes.

George Washington's Birthday

Powerline: Remembering

Scott Johnson's post on George Washington is well said. Take a moment to give thanks that we had a leader like George Washington at the birth of this country.

He died trying to get his freedom...

John Nolte's Weekly Fake News Count

It is not just CNN, but it is one of the worst oftenders...

So much fake news to shovel, but John Nolte takes on this herculean task!

Did #NeverTrumper Evan "Egg McMuffin" McMullin take out Milo?

I do not know if what Gateway Pundit is claiming about Evan McMullin is true or not. Caleb Q. Washington does make the point on the timing of this being intended to inflict maximum damage on Milo. I also find it revealing how many leftists tended to pair up with establishment Republicans and so called 'principled Conservatives' on the right.

I defended Milo. I do not care for his over his top gay shtick, but in short bursts he can show himself to be a hell of a debater on free speech and libertarian positions. I enjoy that ability of Milo. No, he's not a conservative. But as a gadfly, he can take the media and Left on and he is good at it.

CPAC knew what they were getting with Milo. Once the invitation was made they should have stuck with it. They are cowards, but what else is new with CPAC.

I do not support teens having sex with adults. But as Robert Stacy McCain noted recently, we have a state apparatus that will crush an 18 year old for consensual relations with a younger teen. And we have a cult of celebrity that gives a pass to Lena Dunham and Roman Polanski. Do I need to point out the hypocrisy of the MSM almost completely ignoring Obama's "fisting" czar who counseled (among other things) a 15 year old teen about having sex in a bus station with an older stranger.

Milo has some demons he is dealing with. Milo just walked into a media buzz saw.

Just like when they say it's about "protecting" the children, it's not about the children. This is really not about Milo either. This is about people with an agenda damaging Breitbart (where Milo is an editor) and hopefully Steve Bannon and ultimately Trump.

Is McMullin behind this takedown of Milo? All I know is there are plenty on the Left and NeverTrumpers crowd who just got quite aroused.
