The Exterminators

Sat, 08/19/2017 - 4:00pm

 

Some of us have something in us that makes injustice and cruelty intolerable. In such people, the sight or knowledge of such acts as animal cruelty, slavery, child, or elder abuse, the oppression of those weaker than their oppressors evokes rage. Much of the time, laws exist which protect the oppressors from the retribution we would bring down on them, forcing us to choose between just action and prison; forcing our rage to smolder indefinitely, eating away at our inner peace, and causing us to question the motives, or even existence of a just God.

 

Seeing the images on fundraising efforts made by the ASPCA, or UNICEF can be gut wrenching, and debilitating to the soul, and such images arise out of the misuse of property. Of course there is a legitimate debate when it comes to control over property. An ancient and universal principle of social law, perhaps the foundation of all law, is that a person is entitled to the use of such property as they may attain to themselves, and hold. This principle, so important to our social existence is sacrosanct. This nation tore itself asunder in the middle of the 19th century, dealing us a wound that has never healed because persons in the south had the ancient right to protect their property, forcing Union troops to come and wrest that property from their dying hands.

 

Instead of reconciliation, we got reconstruction. Instead of assimilation, we got Jim Crow. The why of this is simple. Except for those whose core values asserted that people cannot, must not, be property, the hearts of Americans were unsettled by a group of people making war in order to convert personal property into something not owned by a person or persons specifically.

 

Over time, money has come to be the means by which (setting aside sentiment) property is valued. Additionally, we have created courts wherein property related actions may be rendered legal or illegal by means of pitting money interests against property interests. You may be aware of the BLM’s ( Bureau of Land Management) actions which vacate the water and property rights of ranchers and homeowners in favor of shale oil companies who need the water in order to frac on land owned by We The People. All this creates a tricky place in which we are now deciding whether or not people can be labeled as property.

 

Many of us believe that the laws of ownership are divided by a divine line; that line being best defined as another ancient principle which attests that an entity’s right to act ends at the tip of another entity’s nose. Therefore, you may own an animal, but you are responsible for it’s care and must not abuse it. You may own property, but you must maintain it in a way that prevents harm to your neighbors. But, as we are discovering, the principles of ownership are trumping, please excuse the pun, the principles of liberty in just about every court case in the land. In the senate, a bare knuckles brawl that went five bloody rounds determined that Americans will retain their rights to access healthcare regardless of their ability to pay. I’m not going to waste my time defending Obamacare, the foregoing is just a fact. Setting aside the our feelings about the ACA, it is also a fact that had it been repealed, we would have been in Germany circa 1941, where the Nazis just let there old and sick die. The real reason we had such a fight like this in the senate had nothing to do with conservative values. When have you seen such an effort made to turn back abortion? Protect our children? Preserve education, or for that matter protect any of our individual liberties or rights of citizenship?

 

Nope, that political bloodshed occurred because the 17 richest families in America had made not paying for the healthcare of the poor their highest priority. Don’t believe me? Just look at the stinking body recently discovered in Florida (see my Facebook post on children being booted off CMS intentionally). Last week I posted about how David Jernigan was misleading America from his Chair at Johns Hopkins University, a chair funded by Bloomberg, in an attempt to confuse us about the real causes of spiking opioids addiction and alcoholism. Now, we discover that thousands of kids with severe diabetes and other life threatening and painful conditions were moved from CMS Medicaid, to a cheaper form of Medicaid that doesn’t provide adequate coverage for humane or even life preserving care.

 

This was accomplished by using a survey with some trick questions in it developed at Johns Hopkins University in a department funded by, wait for it, Bloomberg! For those of you unfamiliar with Bloomberg’s rise, his net worth went from 4 billion dollars at the beginning of his first term as mayor to 20 billion dollars at the end of his third term, his current net worth is 54 billion dollars, so, yeah, he knows how to combine politics with getting richer, and paying for the healthcare of poor Americans is not on his list of methods to increase wealth.

 

All of which brings us back to the ancient principle of holding one’s property. It is, after all it is Bloomberg’s 54 thousand million dollars (another way to say 54 billion). And, according to ancient rites, he is entitled to use it any way he chooses, and to the defense of it, including violence or trickery. So here we are at the heart of it. These ain’t ancient times, and this isn’t Somalia. We are Americans, and we have laws which protect all of our citizens, and provide a coin value to that privilege. Granted, we have managed to let the Bloombergs of the world buy enough political clout to demolish the laws developed by the Roosevelt cousins, and we are now hard at work to tear down what LBJ did, so we have the problem squarely in our gun sights. The real question therefore is, what’s next? There is no political solution, the rich pick our leaders. Our constitutional right to confer legitimacy is beyond our reach, making the constitution at risk.

 

Violence is out. So what to do? I see a path forward so clear that I cannot believe it is unseen by all. But that is another article or two. God Be with you dear readers, and may the wind be always at our backs.

North Korean Situation History and Proposed Solution

Fri, 08/18/2017 - 4:26pm

Of course, the current North Korean brouhaha is all Trump’s fault at least according to the propaganda megaphone and prime time indoctrination machine that is the ABCCBSNBCPBSCNNMSNBCNPR Cartel.  But then again according to these Alt-Left AntiFa stenographers what isn’t?

To be effective all current events must happen in a vacuum.  That way the spinmeisters can work their editorial magic and make everything fit their narrative.

Therefore in their delegitimizing playbook aimed at the eventual impeachment of President Trump, the North Korean nuclear showdown is all because of Trump’s bellicose rhetoric.  However current events are the History of the Future and they need to be seen in context to be understood.

Way back in the mists of recorded time, on October 18, 1994 President Bill Clinton facing the reality of North Korea saying it was going to build nuclear weapons acted out the usual Democrat imitation of Nevil Chamberlain.  In other words, Mr. Clinton gave the tin-pot dictator de jure whatever desired as long as he could wave a little piece of paper and declare it signified “Peace in our time” just before an election.

He briefly described the “Deal” this way, “This agreement [$4 billion in U.S. energy aid] will help achieve a longstanding and vital American objective—an end to the threat of nuclear proliferation on the Korean Peninsula.”

Looking for a talking point to help the Democrat machine maintain its traditional hold on Congress Mr. Clinton set the North Koreans on the road to a nuclear bomb.  Taking no thought for the eventual repercussions and looking only to immediate political advantage he threw America under the bus.

Even that flagship of the left the New York Times saw this for what it was, political maneuvering, not diplomacy.  Here’s how they described it at the time, “The accord struck in Geneva gave the President a chance to proclaim a major foreign policy success just weeks before the midterm election. But Asian diplomats pointed out today that it also placed the United States in the odd position of bolstering the political capital of a man it has regularly denounced as a terrorist, a supplier of missile technology to Iran and a dictator: Kim Jong Il.”

Clinton said, “North Korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program.”

Here’s what the Times had to say, “What bothers some nuclear experts, from the Pentagon to the International Atomic Energy Agency, is that the North will continue to possess nuclear spent fuel for years, surrendering it only when the new reactors are nearing completion. That leaves open the possibility that if it ever renounced this week’s agreement it could eject all international inspectors and resume the bomb project.”

According to President Clinton, “The United States and international inspectors will carefully monitor North Korea to make sure it keeps its commitments. Only as it does so will North Korea fully join the community of nations.”

As reported by the New York Times, “‘This means that we are living with a country that flouted the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and will remain in noncompliance for years,’ an atomic energy agency official said today. ‘We wanted to get that fuel out of the country, and out of the country fast.’’’

And, “‘Similarly, some of the agency’s officials are concerned that the so-called special inspection of a suspected nuclear site that they demanded two years ago — a demand that prompted the North to announce it would pull out of the Nonproliferation Treaty — will be delayed for five years or more. “It is not a good precedent to set,’ the official said, ‘if we have to demand a special inspection in Iran or Iraq or someplace else in the world.”’

The Times had a bit more to say about this American Munich, “President Clinton approved a plan today to arrange more than $4 billion in energy aid to North Korea during the next decade in return for a commitment from the country’s hard-line Communist leadership to freeze and gradually dismantle its nuclear weapons development program.”

And, “American and North Korean officials plan to sign the broad accord on Friday, and almost immediately the United States will begin a remarkable new foreign aid program: it will provide for the North, with which it has never signed a peace treaty ending the Korean War, supplies of heavy oil to keep factories running and homes heated.”

And not only did the United States agree to provide oil Bill Clinton arranged for something else, “The accord calls for a consortium of nations, led by South Korea and Japan, to provide the North with two light-water nuclear reactors, designed in a manner that makes it far more difficult for the North to convert nuclear waste into atomic weapons.”

I wonder what the Kim dynasty has done with those reactors?

Along come George II and what does he do?  He inaugurates the Six Party Talks between the United States, South and North Korea, China, Russia, and Japan.  These talks went on and off for years eventually producing nothing but more time for North Korea to improve upon their first nuclear test which happened on the second Bush watch.

The Obama Administration courageously followed a policy of strategic patience, essentially a commitment to denuclearization as a precondition for talks, conducted in close alliance with Seoul and the other members of the Six-Party Talks.  The talks continued to drag on as Mr. Obama kicked the can down the road.

Now the latest model of a crazy Kim struts around like a bantam rooster with a bad haircut on the world stage.  He overtly threatens us with nuclear war and President Trump stands up to him.

To the corporations once known as the mainstream media this is provocative.  Standing up for yourself is not the progressive way.  We are supposed to cower in the corner and apologize for being who we are.  That is not the American way.  At least it wasn’t before the Clinton – Bush – Obama era.

As stated earlier: To be effective all current events must happen in a vacuum.  That way the spinmeisters can work their editorial magic and make everything fit their narrative.

However, nothing happens in a vacuum.  We must consider the context for a text without a context is a pretext.

So how are we supposed to deal with North Korea short of turning them into a sea of glass?

I propose that we pull our troops out of South Korea.  With a population twice as large and an economy almost four times the size of the stunted North the South should be able to fend for itself after 67 years of American protection.  Then we tell China that unless they reign in their protégé we will help South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan to build their own nuclear weapons. Then we step aside and let the Asian Tigers figure out how to bell the cat in Pyongyang.

Case against Wasserman Schultz’ ex-IT aide expands with 4-count indictment

Fri, 08/18/2017 - 4:05pm

The federal case against Imran Awan, a former IT aide for Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, expanded Thursday with an indictment on four counts including conspiracy and making false statements.
He originally was charged with a single bank fraud count; his wife Hina Alvi also was indicted Thursday.

The grand jury decision in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia comes roughly a month after Awan was arrested at Dulles airport in Virginia trying to board a plane to Pakistan, where his family is from.

Awan and other IT aides for House Democrats have been on investigators’ radar for months over concerns of possible double-billing, alleged equipment theft, and access to sensitive computer systems. Most lawmakers fired Awan in February, but Schultz had kept him on until his arrest in July.

The indictment itself, which merely represents formal charges and is not a finding of guilt, addresses separate allegations that Awan and his wife engaged in a conspiracy to obtain home equity lines of credit from the Congressional Federal Credit Union by giving false information about two properties – and then sending the proceeds to individuals in Pakistan.

The case has put renewed scrutiny on Wasserman Schultz for keeping Awan on the payroll for months, even after a criminal investigation was revealed and he was barred from the House IT network.  

Awan and other family members for years had a lucrative arrangement for IT-related work on Capitol Hill for House Democrats. According to The Daily Caller, the members of the Pakistani family made at least $4 million since 2009.

In a recent interview published in the Sun Sentinel, Wasserman Schultz blamed the “right-wing media circus fringe” for the attention on Awan.

The former head of the Democratic National Committee suggested it’s all part of an effort to distract from the investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign and possible ties to President Trump’s team.

“Any opportunity they can to pull people’s eyes and ears away from that they take,” Wasserman Schultz told the newspaper.

Her colleagues in Congress, though, say there are serious security implications in her former staffer’s case.

“We have to investigate how our systems may have been compromised,” Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., recently told “Fox & Friends.”

Though Awan was barred from the IT network, Wasserman Schultz’ spokesman David Damron told Fox News their office worked with the House Chief Administrative Officer to arrange for the employee to keep providing “valuable services without access to the House network.”

Awan, 37, of Virginia, earlier pleaded not guilty to a single count of bank fraud.

Attorney Christopher Gowen told Fox News  that federal authorities have no evidence of misconduct by Awan relating to his IT duties

The Right To Power

Mon, 08/14/2017 - 8:26pm

 

Carl Sandburg once wrote “A nation that forgets where it came from soon forgets where it is going”. Like and share if you agree! I mean, that’s where we are isn’t it? No one who reads this will disagree with Sandburg, and we all know that we have lost our way, but we are limited to watered down ways of expressing our frustration, like memes. Kind of like the big yellow smiley face that was in our face during Vietnam. Don’t worry, be happy!

 

What I’m going to write about is the stress which this causes to grow in us as individuals, and as a society; but first, where we came from. To cut things short, the founding fathers made it painfully clear that the authority to govern is conferred by those whom it governs. Every nation which has failed to follow this example has, well, failed. But the founding fathers, having written a perfect document in the constitution could not protect us from subsequent stupidity and corruption. Buttressing the Declaration of Independence, and providing the perfect segue into the constitution the preamble states that “we the people of the United States in order too to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense,promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity do ordain and establish this constitution of the United States of America. Snowflakes? Hardly. This cannot possibly be misunderstood. This is where we came from!

 

Using this as a reference point for our future, it’s crystal clear that we have lost our way to a future that might be rationally charted from that point. Now, let me make something perfectly clear: it ain’t politics as we lowercase citizens think of politics. It’s politics the way that the uppercase players think of it. Long term. Not four years, or eight years, but 20 years at the least, which is the average term of a Supreme Court justice, and usually much, much longer due to customs such as stare decisis (google it guys, I’ve got a word limit here). So let’s just visit a few cases where the supreme Ugga Bugga (sorry, just trying to convey some contempt of court here) decided that the preamble was kind of like that last couple of squares of toilet paper we never bother peeling off to use. It’s there, but what the hell, let’s throw it away. As late as 1946 the court quoted the majority justice in Holmes v Jennison when justifying their decision against the state of California for levying an illegal sales tax against Richfield oil corporation, and I quote the court: “ All words in the constitution are meaningful. Every word appears to have been weighed with the utmost deliberation, and its force and effect have been understood. No word in the instrument can be rejected as superfluous, or unmeaningful”. Boo Ya! Now, I don’t know what you, dear reader, believe, but I for one think that we, as a nation had our heads screwed on pretty tight. So, to be clear, in 1946 we remembered where we came from, and thus presumably knew where we were going. But wait! What about 1904 when the court tried Jacobson v Mass? This case essentially upheld the power of the federal government’s right to compulsory vaccination of citizens. The view of the decision was that sometimes the rights of the individual must be infringed upon for the common good. As a liberal, I’m okay with that, liberty does not mean that we may act in a completely unrestrained fashion, but it clearly represents the verge of the slipperiest of slopes. The judicial review further decided that this made citizens subject to the police power of the state. No real surprise to 21st century Americans right? I mean, have you read the Patriot Act? Still walking the tightrope, the court then stated that “the Preamble indicates the general purpose for which the people ordained and established the Constitution”,and then that “the Preamble has never been regarded as the source of any substantive power conferred upon the government of the United States, or on any of its departments”. Oops.

 

The court goes on to say “such powers embrace only those expressly granted by the body of the constitution and such as may be implied from those granted”. Oops again! They just offhandedly gave the Constitution a circumcision! Put plainly, the court said yes, the Constitution has a Preamble, but it’s like the forward to a book, you don’t have to read it, and it doesn’t count. I believe anyone who knows the history of this country would agree that there was a feeling that we had lost our way, and that where we were going at that time.

 

This plainly dangerous doctrine came home to roost in 1972 with Roe v Wade. When confronted by an issue that most definitely concerns the state’s interest in “posterity” and how that aspect of the preamble overrides the personal rights of women, the court again decided to divorce itself from the Preamble, as being separate from the “main body” of the Constitution, and in a decision which basically admitted that the myriad complexity of the case made it impossible to decide on constitutional grounds, once again decided its outcome along purely pragmatic lines, pretty much the same way that they did in Jacobson v Massachusetts. Now let us proceed to what is ailing all of us.

 

As we see, lots of folks cannot talk about politics, or the direction of our nation coherently anymore. That is due to ideological stress which goes unrelieved day after miserable day. That condition is often referred to as frustration. Studies conducted by the U.S. army throughout the 1960’s generally concluded that frustration leads inexorably to aggression. Aggression leads to social alienation. We know that we are supposed to be the source of legitimate power in this country, and yet our government has acted against the interests of the overwhelming majority of its citizens for the last 30 years in lockstep. Why? Because liberals are all powerful and rampant? Is it the vast right wing conspiracy? Well, maybe, if our story begins with “once upon a time”. The answer is yet another Supreme Court case, Citizens United. You see, the Supreme Court justices wield great power, and the consequences of their actions determine our future. For one thing, our present Chief Justice John Roberts invited David Bossie, the chairman of the 501c organization known as Citizens United to bring the case before the court. Now, I’m no constitutional scholar, but I do know a nickel from a dime, so I’m pretty sure that’s social engineering, especially when the folks over at Breitbart broke out the champagne on that day, ahead of its being scheduled on the docket. Now, I’m not going to go into detail about that case, because it reads like “The reason it was ok for three bears to murder a little girl”. What I will say, is that the majority ruling in that case went far beyond those cases which divorced the Preamble from the “main body” of the constitution, and openly robbed We The People of our right to confer legitimacy upon our governing authority, and hand delivered it to David, Allen, and Bill Koch, and the 17 richest families in America, thus making your wishes or opinions irrelevant, save on Facebook perhaps. By conferring personhood onto corporations, and then giving them the right to bestow unlimited funds onto the political candidates of their choice, the court redacted parts of the constitution. Period.

 

Now, I do have an answer for this. All is not lost, because the main body of the Constitution does include several means by which We the people may rescue ourselves from the disasters that the founding fathers surely knew we would create, and if you want to know what that answer is, you will have to read the op-ed on Clevenger and Witt.

If You Don’t Stop It We WILL!

Sun, 08/13/2017 - 9:29am

If you don’t stop it we will! The American family is under attack. The CPS, Planned Parenthood, ANTIFA, Islam, and a host of others have gathered together to to destroy the American family. The very core of what made America great in the first place is being brought down by a devil’s legion of Anti Christs who wish to destroy our borders, rape and kill our daughters and granddaughters, confuse our little boys and end the greatest country that has ever been on the face of the earth, and if you don’t believe that then I’ve got a bridge for you, and it’s on sale!

The CPS, in the person of one Judy Van Fleet recently attacked my family. Why? Because my granddaughter had a spike in her blood sugar, and it took two trips to the hospital to get it right. She actually told us that when we met again not to expect to return home with our children! People! Do you know what that does to a family? We are not a bunch of crackheads. We are an LDS family with three homes in two states who THOUGHT we could vacation in Texas and return to Utah for the school year. We THOUGHT the children could see the Alamo, go to Corpus Christi, eat on the River Walk and ride horses without having to gather up and flee to safety like a bunch of German Jews in 1939! And Van Fleet thought we were going to calmly surrender our babies just like those people in Germany calmly filed into the gas chambers!

I crappith thee NOT! Reviewing the ins and outs of CPS procedure I was again reminded that the CPS doesn’t have to “prove” anything. Only have “reason to believe” before some wannabe judge raffles your ten year old granddaughter off to some pedophile! And you’re amazed that I’m mad? Enough is enough. Government! If you don’t stop it, we will! Our family has sacrificed all to raise our children, and have been blessed by Heavenly Father. And yes, I’m aggressive. CPS loves that word. They use it all the time. The fact that a grandfather takes it personally when some lesbian takes possession of his little girl. Well folks, there are some things worth dying for. If you don’t stop it we will.

Planned parenthood! Don’t get me started. Planned Parenthood? Try Final Solution. An organization set up to eliminate what they consider to be human weeds. A term straight from their founder. Kill the unborn and sell their bodies. People! You are allowing this! What’s the difference between that and carrying your child into the gas chamber in your naked arms? At least those mothers loved their children and died with them. And it’s all our fault. What difference is there between a German who ignored the death camp on the edge of town and the person who calmly drives by the abortion clinic on the way to Starbucks? We allow this to happen. What is the difference between the neighbor who looks the other way as a person like Van Fleet pulls a baby from a mother’s arms and the German who shudders the widow as a Jewish grandfather is tossed from an upstairs window in his wheelchair by the SS? Justify it, PLEASE!

And Islam! The religion of peace! When angel’s fly out of my butt! Do want to know why that bride to be got shot? She died because a Muslim cop was offended by her bath robe. From his car, with no threat to his person, that animal shot a lady, center mass because Allah was pissed off. Center mass. He had to aim! He SAW her. And the Muslim mayor, who fired the WHITE police chief on the first day in office warned against “Islamaphobia!” Rattle snake a phobia! This is the same mentality that shoots a grandmother in the top of her head for walking to the store unescorted. Israel should toss every one of them off the top of the Wailing Wall and return the Temple Mount to its rightful owners.

 

ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, and the ENTIRE transgender movement. Black Lives Matter started in response to a thug getting shot for bull rushing a cop. His arms were’t up, they were out to grab the officer. An officer he’d already assaulted and was charging in to finish the job. Good shot. As good as the one that killed the bride to be. ANTIFA was the direct product to Barrack Insane Obama. A group that took everything that is good, holy, and American, and set it on its ear. The Main Stream Media is wringing crying towels over the person who was killed yesterday in Virginia. They are not shedding one tear for all the unborn who went out with the abortion clinic’s garbage yesterday. God burned up Sodom. I’m amazed we aren’t toast yet. While I don’t agree with white racism I totally understand where it comes from. Even a good dog has a right to bite.

 

The very idea that a five year old little boy should be told he can be a girl if he wants to is an abomination before God! When I was five I watched Davy Crockett, king of the wild frontier and I wanted to grow up to be just like him! The little girl who came over in the red coat played with dolls and her tea set. When you try to influence a child to confuse their gender YOU need an operation. It’s called castration!

 

In the words from an old movie we, the American people need to get up, walk to our window, throw it open and yell, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore!” The malignant left is alarmed at President Trump, well that means they are alarmed at YOU dear reader because if they don’t stop it, I can guarantee you WE WILL!

Do You Remember?

Sat, 08/12/2017 - 9:25am

Do you remember September 11 brothers and sisters? I know how hard it is to think about, but we have to face the distasteful truth of our own lives, so why should we flinch from the truth of our political reality? We were attacked by weaponized ideology trained, funded, and assisted by our own government on that day for reasons of financial gain and political power. I know it, you know it, and even those whose best interests are served by denying it publicly know it, and we know it deep down, in our guts. This sparked conflicts that resulted in cataclysmic destruction of whole nations in the Middle East. The end game, obvious to those who were morally capable of owning the fact that we allowed this to happen for purely ideological reasons is occurring right now. After all, the nation was tearing itself apart after watching W. steal an election in broad daylight (hanging chads my ass). So we let the bastards have their wars, because to kick up a fuss after the barn had been empty identified you as weak, un-American .

And when Obama came along, well, he went along, because what is integrity next to the historical significance of being the first black president? So that end game, known to those of us strong enough to understand that thieves were abroad by day and that no one was going to do anything, and that the fourth estate had been bought and destroyed in order to maintain public paralysis has always been to bring the radical Islamists here. Here to our own nation. A nation of sheep, ready for the slaughter.

 

Check out the rust belt which was created specifically for them to be housed as “refugees”. A people who hate us, and rightfully so! You think they’ll stop because of a few rallies, or because we elect hand grenades as leaders? Then you’re still blind. The answer is not inclusion, nor is it found in trying to stem the tide by persuading the very people who created this to change it. The answer is right under our noses. The real question is, do we have the will of our forebears, or will we simply follow the Judas goat to the slaughter.

Democracy In The USA

Fri, 08/11/2017 - 3:41pm

Ok, for those of you who have been scratching your heads, wondering what has happened to democracy in the USA,because what HAS happened to democracy in our nation is the cause of everything that ails us, from illegal immigration to abortion. So for those of you who are not aware of what is wrong under the hood, there is nothing like watching a problem occurring in real time. To hell with analysis of history. Listening to a bunch of biased forensic ideologists picking over photos of spilled milk. In Nevada, today, a state senate that has one more democrat than it does republican, the republicans, using a plan called “red state” (google that one up if you love our constitution) are performing a statewide recall of the single democrat who represents the thinnest of majorities in that state’s senate. There is no reason presented for the recall, and no call from the state’s citizenry to recall her; just a plan by the republicans to flip the house. They will use as much of the over five billion dollars stockpiled by Bill, David, and Allen Koch to defeat her in a statewide recall. Remember, a recall is statewide, while state senate seats are basically by districts of constituency. This money, this ugly hoard put together by the seventeen richest families in America, and the red state plan are the cause of what is wrong with our democracy.

 

There is not a single politician in the USA that doesn’t understand that money equals election. It’s why the will of the people has been silenced. We, the legitimate source of authority have been gagged by wads of cash too large for us to combat should we have the will to fight shoulder to shoulder against it. Now, there will be those who will dredge George Soros up and say, what about him? Forget about it, I’m doing that myself right now. See, it makes my point. When Soros weighs in with his big money, when unions weigh in with their big money (or used to anyway), it cancels out the idea of democracy. People with special interests that are not compatible with representation of the otherwise majority of citizens seeking representation should not be allowed to influence political leadership. Now, that should be clear enough. It’s like when a couple of weeks ago the senate and the president sought to turn back the will of the people, all seemed to be lost; but then, in full view of us, the constitution moved, and just as the founding fathers intended, provided leadership where no living proof of leadership was to be found. That old piece of parchment shouldered its way in and vindicated all who have given their lives and their courage to defend it on bloody battlefields all the world over.

 

So, if, like me you find these times to be fraught with historical implication, settle back and watch a different kind of constitutional battle fought in Nevada. Witness for yourself the will of an entire district of constituency stomped out by big money, and a plan that will end with the super rich lighting cigars with the scraps of our great constitution. For it is as Abraham Lincoln predicted: we are being destroyed, not from without, but from within.

Hacked Emails Expose Hacks

The sore loser cry babies who refuse to accept the results of American voters will do anything to make the vote of the people for Donald Trump appear illegitimate.  Their lame attempts at frivolous recounts only exposed their own corruption and added votes to the Donald’s bottom line.  So it is time for a new approach.  Blame it on the Russians.

I remember back in the 1980s when we finally had a president with a plan to end the Cold War.  These same bleeding heart limousine liberals fell all over themselves opposing the Gipper.  They marched, they colluded with the enemy and they endlessly attacked him and his plan through their operatives masquerading as journalists in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media.

Now when the evidence is flimsy at best and manufactured at worst they are indignantly riding their high horses to another catastrophic defeat.  Even the help of all the RINOs in Congress won’t help these repudiated Clintonistas put Humpty Dumpty Hillary back together again.

Their megaphones in the media are filling the airwaves with the lie that all our intelligence services agree the Russians hacked our election and caused the defeat of the anointed and the victory of the barbarians.

Let’s see how that squares with reality.

Top US Spy Agency Doesn’t Back CIA View on Russia Hacking

According to Reuters the leaders of the U.S. intelligence community do not embrace a CIA assessment that Russian cyber-attacks were aimed at helping Republican President-elect Donald Trump win the 2016 election.  While the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) does not dispute the CIA’s analysis of Russian hacking operations, it does not endorse their assessment because there is a lack of conclusive evidence that Moscow intended to boost Trump over Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

The position of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), which oversees the seventeen agency-strong U.S. intelligence communities, gives Trump an informed position to dispute the CIA assessment.

 

 

Former Army Intel Officer Rejects Hack Theory: CIA’s Brennan Playing ‘Info Warfare’

A retired Army intelligence officer dismissed the theory that the Russians hacked the election in favor of Donald Trump, instead putting forth his own theory — CIA Director John Brennan is playing political games.

Retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer stated that in his opinion Brennan is trying to undermine the president-elect out of deference to his old boss, President Barack Obama.

Shaffer said, “This is purely political, and I believe that John Brennan is a political animal. Everything they are telling me is Brennan is doing this out of loyalty to Ex-President Obama. It’s called information operations, information warfare, and that’s what I believe is going on.”

Ultimately what’s more dangerous the DNC hack or the criminality it exposed?

These leaked emails, whether released by Russia, China, or some teenager in his mother’s basement expose possible criminal activity by Secretary Clinton and New York’s Sixth Crime Family using her office as the launching pad for a pay-to-play scam to solicit tens of millions of dollars from foreign heads of state.

There was also evidence that Clinton’s campaign staff colluded with their not-so-covert supporters over at the Clinton News Network (CNN) before one of her debates with the Donald in order to help her in the debate and sway the results of the election.  As a matter of fact though they still deny it happened Donna Brazile has admitted that she shared the questions with Hillary before the debate.  If that isn’t cheating and colluding to influence the vote I don’t know what is.

In addition, Clinton’s campaign staff and the DNC colluded to undermine the presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders.   This is what the hacked emails from the DNC reveal never mind who leaked them the truth is the truth.

Clinton’s staff and members of the DNC all knew that Sanders was soliciting millions of dollars for his presidential campaign.  All the while they also knew that while he was doing so, they were conspiring to do everything in their power to undermine his campaign and guarantee his failure.  According to some lawyers, that could be seen as honest services fraud.

Then there is the history of American politicians working with the Russians to influence our elections.  Hint: it wasn’t conservatives and it wasn’t Putin.

In an article by Michael Reagan in Newsmax:

Democrats Secretly Worked With Russia to Oppose My Dad

Former intelligence officer Herbert Romerstein dug through the Soviet archives after the fall of the USSR and uncovered secret documents written by KGB agent Victor Chebrikov. The documents revealed that Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy had sent a friend, former Senator John Tunney of California, to contact the KGB. Tunney’s mission: undermine then-President Jimmy Carter.

On March 5, 1980, as Kennedy was challenging Carter in the primaries, Tunney met with the KGB and urged the Soviets to sabotage Carter’s foreign policy efforts. It’s amazing: Two high-ranking Democrats — a sitting U.S. senator and a former senator — sought Soviet help in undermining American foreign policy and manipulating an American election.

One 1980 document stated that Kennedy offered to condemn President Carter’s policy toward the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan in exchange for KGB help. News accounts of that period prove that Kennedy did, in fact, openly criticize Carter’s Afghanistan policy.

Even more amazing: President Carter himself was also willing to jump into bed with the Soviets. In the closing days of the 1980 presidential campaign, while trailing Ronald Reagan in the polls, Jimmy Carter sent a political ally, industrialist Armand Hammer, to a secret meeting with Soviet ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin at the embassy in Washington. Hammer asked the Soviets to help Carter win votes in key states by allowing Jewish “refuseniks” to emigrate to Israel. The Soviets rejected Hammer’s request.

In January 1984, former President Carter approached Ambassador Dobrynin in person. Carter wanted to derail President Reagan’s defense buildup, and asked for help from the Evil Empire in unseating President Reagan. It’s not clear if the Soviets gave Carter what he wanted.

Then there’s Speaker of the House Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill. He privately told Ambassador Dobrynin that it was in everyone’s best interests if the Soviets would help the Democrats keep “that demagogue Reagan” from being re-elected. O’Neill warned Dobrynin that the “primitive instincts” of this “dangerous man” would plunge the world into war.

It must have amazed Anatoly Dobrynin that these prominent liberals — Ted Kennedy, Armand Hammer, Jimmy Carter, and Tip O’Neill — all viewed President Reagan as more dangerous than any Communist dictator. Historian Paul Kengor observed that the Soviet archives showed “the lengths to which some on the political left . . .were willing to go to stop Ronald Reagan.”

Why did the KGB documents come to light? They surfaced because Ronald Reagan toppled the Evil Empire, ended the Cold War, and thwarted the joint Democrat-Soviet effort to manipulate the election.

And if all else fails we could always go to the horse’s mouth.  According to Fortune magazine, “Julian Assange claims Russia isn’t behind WikiLeaks’ hacked Clinton emails.”

The latest revelation in this unraveling story of Russian leaks and possible interference in the election of Donald Trump involves an explosive revelation which will no doubt be hidden from the low-information voters who receive all their news from the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBC CABAL.

An ex-British ambassador who is now a WikiLeaks operative claims Russia did NOT provide Clinton emails – they were handed over to him at a D.C. park by an intermediary for ‘disgusted’ Democratic whistleblowers.  Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and a close associate of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, told Dailymail.com that he flew to Washington, D.C. for a clandestine hand-off with one of the email sources in September.

Murray insisted that the DNC and Podesta emails published by WikiLeaks did not come from the Russians, and were given to the whistle-blowing group by Americans who had authorized access to the information.

Murray said, “Neither of [the leaks] came from the Russians.  The source had legal access to the information. The documents came from inside leaks, not hacks.”

He said “The leakers were motivated by disgust at the corruption of the Clinton Foundation and the tilting of the primary election playing field against Bernie Sanders.”

Here’s another bombshell exploding on the flank of the politically motivated fake news campaign by the Progressive establishment to de-legitimize the election of Donald Trump.  According to Frank Gaffney in Newsmax:

In telephone conversations with Donald Trump, Ex-FBI Director (and self-admitted leaker) James Comey assured the president-elect there was no credible evidence that Russia influenced the outcome of the recent U.S. presidential election by hacking the Democratic National Committee and the emails of John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

What’s more, Comey told Trump that James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, agreed with this FBI assessment.

The only member of the U.S. intelligence community who was ready to assert that the Russians sanctioned the hacking was John Brennan, the ex-director of the CIA, according to sources who were briefed on Comey’s conversations with Trump.

“And Brennan takes his marching orders from President Obama,” the sources quoted Comey as saying.

In Comey’s view, the leaks to the New York Times and the Washington Post alleging that the Russians tried—and perhaps even succeeded—in tilting the election to Trump were a Democratic Party effort to delegitimize Trump’s victory.

Looking at the leaks about this whole affair former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra told Newsmax TV on Wednesday, “It is not the agency that is doing this. It is rogue employees within the CIA who are leaking this information.”

Here’s the real hack that attempted to subvert our election:

The recent re-count in Michigan revealed there were too many votes in 37% of Detroit’s precincts

Detailed reports from the office of Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett show optical scanners at 248 of the city’s 662 precincts, or 37 percent, tabulated more ballots than the number of voters tallied by workers in the poll books.

This is the same old same old vote rigging by the Democrat machines that have presided over the destruction of our great cities.  What these political hacks have done to Detroit is what they were planning for the country as a whole.  In other words; the hacked emails and the frivolous re-counts exposed the Hacks. And though they did their best to steal the election and today they are fighting to keep the truth hidden, the working people of America finally got up off the couch, the silent majority final spoke with one voice, and instead of the managed decline of the Obama-Clinton CABAL we are on the road to Make America Great Again!

Community colleges ready for campus carry

Fri, 08/11/2017 - 7:54am

When Texas’ four-year universities were forced to accept campus carry a year ago, large protests were staged by students unhappy with the idea of more weapons on campus. With a state mandate to allow guns on campuses, the protests had little effect. In the year since the law took effect, though, few ill effects have been reported.

Brazoria County’s community colleges are unlikely to see rallies today when two-year colleges fall under the campus-carry requirement, with both Alvin Community College and Brazosport College preparing for the day by engaging students and faculty well ahead of time.

“Over the course of several campus forums, we have fielded questions from students and staff regarding the law,” Alvin Community College President Christal M. Albrecht said in an emailed response. “The feedback has been mostly neutral. Many of the questions were focused on which areas of the campus would still not allow weapons.”

People are still banned from carrying their concealed handguns to ACC sporting events. Other areas where concealed carry isn’t allowed will have signs posted citing section 30.06 of the Texas Penal Code stating people with concealed handguns cannot enter the property, according to the college’s website.

Brazosport College had meetings last year to inform attendees of the law change and get a consensus on how the college should approach it.

“They also had an opportunity to respond to a survey and also to comment on Brazosport College’s campus carry rules as they were being drafted. The feedback was broad and far-ranging,” Vice President of Human Resources Marshall Campbell said in an email. “While some faculty, staff and students voiced concern about the possibility of an increase of guns on campus, others commented that they are comfortable with the law.”

Campbell oversees the newly developed Brazosport College Police Department, which had been in the works before the new law and became official last August.

Both campuses are doing what they can to educate new students through orientations and posting signage.

“Brazosport College’s Police Department has presented on the campus carry law and the college’s rules related to the law at its New Student Orientation sessions,” Campbell said. “It will also present to faculty and staff at the college’s meetings for the new academic year. The college’s campus carry rules are published on the police department’s website. The department is also adjusting signage on campus to comply with the new law and the college’s rules.”

Aside from hosting several forums, ACC is enforcing a few other changes.

“We have completed a procedural process that outlines which areas will remain weapon-free, and we have posted signs on campus stating where weapons are not allowed,” Albrecht said. “In order to keep our students safe, we are also planning to expand our police presence by upgrading two part-time positions to full-time.”

The law applies to licensed gunholders who carry a concealed handgun, according to the Texas Department of Public Safety’s website. This is one detail Brazosport College officials are stressing to campus-goers.

“Therefore, the faculty, staff and students are instructed to contact the college’s Police Department if someone has a gun that is not concealed,” Campbell said.

Ultimately, campus officials want staff and students to know they are taking everyone’s safety seriously.

“The most effective learning environment is a safe environment,” Albrecht said. “Campus security is among our top concerns and we feel that we are well prepared for when the law takes effect.”

Retired FDNY firefighter Michael Duffy dead at 63 after battle with 9/11-linked cancer

Fri, 08/11/2017 - 7:08am

Another firefighter has lost his life to a 9/11-related cancer.

Retired Firefighter Michael Duffy, a 20-year veteran of the department who spent time at Ground Zero after the terror attacks, died on Aug. 8, officials said Thursday.

Duffy joined the FDNY in 1982 and spent his entire career at Engine 310 and Ladder 174 on Snyder Ave. in East Flatbush, known as “Snyder Island.”

“He comes from a very proud firehouse,” Uniformed Firefighters Association President Gerard Fitzgerald said. (TODD MAISEL/NEW YORK DAILY NEWS)

“He comes from a very proud firehouse,” Uniformed Firefighters Association President Gerard Fitzgerald said. “This is a terrific loss to the members of the firehouse, the retirees and people in the Gerritsen Beach community where he lived.”

Duffy, 63, retired from the FDNY in 2002.

On 9/11, 343 firefighters and 23 NYPD cops were killed when terrorists flew two jumbo jets into the World Trade Center.

As of July 15, 157 FDNY members — including firefighters, EMS personnel, civilian employees and fire marshals — have died of 9/11-related illnesses, department officials said.

By the end of 2016, 132 additional NYPD cops had died of illnesses that can be linked to their time at Ground Zero, officials said.

Duffy is survived by his wife, Corrina. Calls to family members were not immediately returned.

Services will be held Friday at the James P. Byrnes Funeral Home on Gerritsen Ave. A funeral mass will be held at Resurrection Church, also on Gerritsen Ave., on Saturday at 10:30 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks mourners to make donations to St. Judes Medical Center, New York Presbyterian Burn Center and the FDNY Fire Family Transport Foundation, which shuttles firefighters and their families to medical appointments.

Why?

Thu, 08/10/2017 - 4:32pm

Why? That is the biggest, most profound question in human existence. Why? We see the unexplainable, the horrific, the soul searing, and stare up at the sky, asking, “Why?” You will wait until you’re dust, pray until ice forms on your upraised palms, and never be able to comprehend, “Why?”

For the last week I’ve been studying the death of JonBenet. We’ll never understand the mind of the person who perpetrated the act, indeed, if we understand, then we are as depraved as that person was. No, the why here is why does it make any difference after twenty years. On this I can enlighten you. It makes a difference because the death of that little girl stole not only her life and innocence, but ours as well. We all wish that life were beautiful, and Shirley Temple was forever singing “The Good Ship Lolly Pop,” but JonBenet’s death reminded us that the ship ran aground that day, and we were forced to look at the crumpled body of our dreams on a basement floor.

I noticed that as I watched documentary after documentary I began to focus more and more on the beautiful, and less on the basement floor. I was absolutely stunned at the talent in that little body, and still asking, “Why?” It’s as if God is using her death to teach us a bunch of lessons. God didn’t make this happen, man has free will, but once it did happen He used it. He used it to show us what evil is, how we will always be exposed to it, and how we answer the “why” determines how we fight it. God also challenged our arrogance. For all the “trace DNA,” and national data bases, FBI, CIA, NSA, and gumshoes taking a magnifying glass to ever part of that house we will most likely never surely know what happened in that basement in 1996! God knows, and he waits at the Gate behind that big cash register in the sky to total up the bill. JonBenet will have an eternity of dancing with the Angels, and whomever killed her will dance with the devil.

Why? My six year old grandson got to go to school for the first time this year. All his life he got to watch his brothers and sister get on that big yellow bus, and ride off to a mysterious place that he wasn’t allowed to go, and he longed for the day when he, too, will be a “big boy,” and take his place on that bus. I’m telling you this because I want you to understand that I feel the wonder, the joy, in a little boy’s mind on that day. My grandson was transformed, invigorated because it was a right of passage. On that day we stopped calling him “New Baby,” and called him by his name, Stevin! Out in Carolina there was another little six year old boy. I know he was just as thrilled to be a “big boy” too, and I know he loved his teachers, his lunch, his books, and the school ground . . . where he was shot while going to his school. He lingered for most of a week, and now he plays with JonBenet. Why?

Mattis warns North Korea to stand down or face ‘end of regime’

Thu, 08/10/2017 - 12:58pm

Defense Secretary James Mattis on Wednesday warned North Korea to stop its pursuit of nuclear weapons or face the end of Pyongyang’s regime and “the destruction of its people.”

His comments come after the North Korean military threatened a missile strike near the U.S. territory of Guam, in response to comments made by President Donald Trump and a Pentagon bomber operation in the region.

Mattis said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un should “take heed” of the U.N. Security Council’s statement that Pyongyang poses a global security threat.

“The [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea] must choose to stop isolating itself and stand down its pursuit of nuclear weapons,” he said, using the name North Korea calls itself. “The DPRK should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.”

On Tuesday, Trump warned North Korea not to make any more threats against the United States. In July, North Korea said it would “strike a merciless blow” at the United States if Washington ever attempted to remove Kim from power.

“They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen,” Trump said from his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. “[Kim] has been very threatening beyond a normal state and as I said they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”

Earlier Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson defended Trump’s remarks.

During a brief scheduled stop in Guam, Tillerson suggested Trump’s rhetoric is a strategy he is using as head of state to communicate clearly with Kim.

“What the president is doing is sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong Un would understand, because he doesn’t seem to understand diplomatic language,” Tillerson said. “I think the president just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime that the U.S. has the unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and its allies, and I think it was important that he deliver that message to avoid any miscalculation on their part.”

Mattis said that though the State Department is making efforts to resolve the threat using diplomatic means, allied militaries possess “robust defensive and offensive capabilities.”

“The DPRK regime’s actions will continue to be grossly overmatched by ours and would lose any arms race or conflict it initiates,” he said.

Later Wednesday morning, Trump tweeted about the United States’ nuclear capabilities amid tensions with the nuclear-capable North Korean regime. He said the U.S. nuclear arsenal is the most powerful it’s ever been under his leadership.

“My first order as president was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before,” Trump wrote. “Hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world!”

Guam is home to Anderson Air Force Base, from which two U.S. B-1B bombers deployed on a mission with the South Korean and Japanese air forces on Monday. The aircraft flew over Japanese airspace before passing over the Korean Peninsula.

“I think what the president was just reaffirming is that the United States has the capability to fully defend itself from any attack, and our allies, and we will do so,” Tillerson said. “So the American people should sleep well at night.”

Study: Steep price hikes led to drop in use of two heart drugs at U.S. hospitals

Thu, 08/10/2017 - 12:41pm

The findings disprove claims that price increases do not reduce patient access to and use of certain medications, said researchers at the Cleveland Clinic.

After steep price hikes, use of two common heart medications declined significantly in U.S. hospitals, a new study shows.

The drugs, nitroprusside, or Nitropress, and isoproterenol, or Isuprel, have been used for decades.

The findings disprove claims that price increases do not reduce patient access to and use of certain medications, the Cleveland Clinic researchers said.

“In public testimony, it had been stated that these price increases would not decrease patient access or utilization of these two critical drugs, both of which have been used for decades in patient care,” said lead author Dr. Umesh Khot, vice chairman of cardiovascular medicine.

“However, our research shows that these price hikes are not benign. Further research will determine if there has been any effect on patient outcomes, but it’s clear that utilization has been impacted,” Khot said in a clinic news release.

From 2012 to 2015, the price of isoproterenol in the United States increased nearly 70-fold — from $26 to $1,790.

The research team looked at the drugs’ use in 47 hospitals. The researchers found the number of patients treated with isoproterenol dropped 35 percent.

The cost of nitroprusside, meanwhile, rose 30-fold, from $27 to $880. And the number of patients treated with the drug fell 53 percent, the researchers said.

Because the two drugs are only used in hospitals, there is no external patient demand for them and no direct-to-consumer advertising, the researchers pointed out.

The researchers also looked at use of nitroglycerin and dobutamine, intravenous heart drugs with stable pricing. During the study period, the number of patients treated with nitroglycerin rose 118 percent, and dobutamine usage increased 7 percent.

Nitroprusside lowers blood pressure and is used to treat critical high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. Doctors also order it to keep blood pressure low during surgery.

Isoproterenol is used to treat low heart rate and heart block, or when the heart beats too slowly. It’s also used during electrophysiology procedures and certain types of surgery to increase heart rate, the researchers said.

“These are medications that physicians are very familiar with, and for which there are no direct alternatives. As a result, hospitals have had to reevaluate use of these drugs and potentially bring in other therapies,” said Michael Militello, a doctor of pharmacy.

“Understanding how physicians, pharmacists, and health systems have addressed their use of these medications is an important area of further study,” he added.

The study appears as a letter to the editor in the Aug. 10 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine.

SJW Backlash Against Google Staffer: ‘I Would Beat The Sh*t Out Of Him’

Mon, 08/07/2017 - 10:48am

Left-wing backlash against the Google employee who published a manifesto calling for more ideological tolerance at the company intensified this evening, as SJWs inside and outside Google sought to contain political dissent at the company.

The Googler’s 10-page manifesto criticized the company for maintaining an atmosphere of political groupthink, in which employees with viewpoints that challenge leftist narratives are forced to keep their mouths shut for fear of losing their jobs. He also criticized Google for ignoring the latest research on gender differences and their interplay with the lack of women in STEM jobs.

The allegations of political intolerance come shortly after YouTube, a Google-owned platform, announced they would manipulate search results, artificially promote socially progressive videos, and censor non-rule breaking content that is considered “potential hate speech.” The company is also partnering with the ADL and other left-wing organizations to identify “hate speech” on the platform.

His main thesis — that political dissenters at Google face severe threats to their career — was immediately confirmed by the backlash against him, which included threats to his job and at least one threat of violence.

One social media SJW, Emily Gorcenski, said she would “beat the sh*t” out of the Google employee. Gorcenski also frequently retweets It’s Going Down, a news site that regularly supports the actions of violent “antifa” activists.

Colm Buckley, who identifies himself as someone who “does stuff at Google,” admitted that he wants certain viewpoints silenced, and said that those who believed women and minorities are unqualified (an inaccurate representation of the manifesto, which spoke of group differences between the genders) should not feel “safe to share.” He added that those that express views he finds “violently offensive” actually “deserve what’s coming to you.”

Anthony Baxter, another alleged Google employee, accused the manifesto author and his supporters at Google of being Nazis, and said they ought to be punched.

Dave O’Connor, who claims to be an engineering director at Google, indicated he was fine with supporters of the manifesto feeling “marginalized,” said he refused to engage with the document’s sources, and called it the “antithesis of what we’re trying to do at Google.”

Tanya Reilly, who a site reliability engineer at Google according to her social media profile, indicated that the manifesto author ought to be “fired [into the sun].”

Joel Becker, another alleged Google employee, said the manifesto cost him “at least two days of productivity and anger,” and said he would not work with the manifesto’s author.

Paul Cowan, who claims to be another site reliability manager at Google, attacked the company for a “weak response,” to a “trashfire” document. His comments indicate that senior management at Google may wish to encourage “healthy debate,” but are facing bitter opposition from Cowan and other SJWs within the company.

Eric Bolling Accuser Is A Left-Wing Anti-Trump Activist

Mon, 08/07/2017 - 9:39am

Suspended Fox News host Eric Bolling’s first public accuser is a major left-wing activist who held a protest sign at President Trump’s inauguration accusing the president of being a rapist.

Caroline Heldman, an Occidental College professor who appeared on Fox News, reportedly “filed a sexual harassment complaint just hours before Fox News announced O’Reilly’s departure,” according to People magazine.

Now, she is back to accuse Eric Bolling, a major Trump supporter at the network. Here is Philly.com’s report:

Hours after Fox News announced it was suspending Bolling, Caroline Heldman, a politics professor at Occidental College and frequent guest on the network from 2008 to 2011, claimed the Fox News host made an unspecified number of unsolicited sexual advances to her.

“[Bolling] said he wanted to fly me out to New York for in-studio hits and to have ‘fun.’ He asked me to have meals with him on several occasions, but I found excuses not to go,” Heldman wrote in a lengthy Facebook post. “Once, he took me up to his office in New York, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex.”

Bolling’s team is denying the accusations. Heldman’s social media profiles show her to be a staunch left-wing feminist activist.

Reports have surfaced on Twitter that Michelle Fields, who infamously made false accusations against Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in 2016 during her shortlived stint as a Breitbart News reporter, is one of the women accusing Bolling of sending explicit photos to her. The press has cited multiple anonymous co-workers of Bolling’s at Fox News and Fox Business as accusers.

Fields, who was a regular on Bolling’s show “Cashin In” but was phased out after her false accusations against Lewandowski (for which she resigned in disgrace from Breitbart), denied that she is accusing Bolling of misconduct. Fields took a job with The Huffington Post after leaving Breitbart, but she has been less than prolific at the left-wing news outlet that broke the Bolling story.

Diversity and Political Correctness… the Bane of Us All

Mon, 08/07/2017 - 9:25am

By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

“She didn’t have to die.”

– former Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau

Buzz words…unfortunately in today’s world it seems political buzz words set the tone for both public policy and public cover-ups. Take for example these two buzz words…’diversity’…as in the inclusion of people of different races or cultures into the fabric of our American society…and ‘political correctness’…as in the avoidance of language and/or actions deemed to be excluding, marginalizing, or insulting towards any given group of people. Unfortunately, these buzz words appear linked together more times than not and seem to be the property of the left to use solely against the right.

And sometimes buzz words, especially when coupled with actions, do come back to haunt as ‘diversity’ in the name of ‘political correctness’ can and does have dire consequences. Take one recent example involving the murder of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, the Australian bride-to-be who was fatally shot by Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor, after she called 911 to report a sexual assault behind her home. Clad in a bathrobe. Damond approached the driver’s side of the squad car to talk to the officers, but instead Noor opened fire on the unarmed woman from the passenger side, killing her instantly with one bullet to the abdomen.

So how does diversity and political correctness come into play in regards to this case? In regards to diversity… Mohamad Noor…a devout muslim of Somali descent with just 21 months on the job and with a known history of an ‘attitude’ towards women…so say those who know him… was needed as a ‘token’ of sorts to show how diverse and inclusive the Minneapolis Police Department was in regards to its hiring practices. In other words, Noor was hired in the name of muslim ‘inclusion’ as espoused in the doctrine known as political correctness…hired so as not to offend or leave off the force a Somali muslim…hired to placate Minneapolis’ large and ever-growing Somali muslim population.

Entering an accelerated police cadet program that required only seven months of training in order to wear the badge and patrol the streets, Noor was fast-tracked into entering said program, never mind that critically absent from this fast-track program was and still is must-needed field experience…experience proven missing by how ill-prepared this muslim officer was to handle a routine police call…a routine call that occurs daily in the world beyond the muslim enclave in which Noor lived.

And in an attempt to protect the Minneapolis PD’s call for diversity and to do so via the application of all things deemed politically correct…so needed when protecting a person of minority status against what the left considers the lunatic far right…the circling of the wagons to protect this muslim cop has been set into motion. And sadly that includes the fact that while the Minneapolis PD’s Internal Affairs Unit can “compel” Officer Noor…who still refuses to be interviewed by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension which is investigating the shooting…to give a statement as part of its own investigation into what happened in the early morning hours of July 15th and then fire Noor if he refuses to cooperate. It also means that any statement Noor does give cannot be used against him in any criminal investigation, including in an internal use-of-force investigation, which is standard any time an officer discharges a weapon.

And the circle of protection in the name of diversity is complete.

But what is most grievous in all this is that an innocent woman is dead while a muslim officer is being protected so as not to upset the diversity applecart for this incident is being portrayed in the name of political correctness by the media as nothing but “one individual’s actions” no matter that the body cameras of both the officers on scene which should have been turned on were not…I mean how convenient is that.

Diversity and its counterpart political correctness score one…and the victim scores zero…as is usually the case.

And this is but one example of many where there is no justice for the true victim but the minority perpetrator is made into or hailed as a hero or is media twisted into becoming the victim himself, all in the name of protecting diversity fueled on in the name of political correctness to the nth degree.

But the fact is that both racial and ethnic diversity for diversity’s sake alone especially when fueled on in the name of political correctness…which is actually just another name for progressiveness…is a detriment to society. Too much diversity within the confines of any given area…whether it be a town, a city, or a country… divides people instead of uniting them for it waters down the commonalities that should be used to unite us and assimilate, replaces it with a belief system both foreign to us and many times counter to the beliefs, morals, and values that define us as Americans. In fact, in today’s America large scale immigration into our country…whether legally or illegally…of any one group of people causes harm to the very fabric of our nation’s society for it seems of late that said group of people instead of assimilating into American society expect American’s not only to assimilate into their culture but to put their cultural norms above our own.

Simply, when the reality of what is actually happening finally sets in, and when that which is politically correct gets pushed to the side, the indisputable fact that remains is the more diverse a population becomes the less the needs of the collective whole gets taken into consideration as politics and policy set will always have those in power pandering to the largest segment of the given population they represent whether it be American citizens or those living here without citizenship. In other words, the call for diversity allows for the imposing of special treatment for some at the expense of others…many times with the political reward being needed votes garnered.

And this causes both verbal divisiveness and physical conflict not just between opposing cultures but within the subcultures of the minorities themselves. You can see this in action in the black inner cities across America with middle class blacks having to defend themselves against the mentality of those blacks believing that they are ‘entitled’ to what others have without having to work for it; you can see it in the Hispanic barrios where the young people who want to assimilate come up against gangs who will kill them if they do; and you will especially see it in the muslim enclaves replete with ‘No Go’ zones and with sharia law being placed above the Constitution. And feeding into and fueling on this divisiveness is the politicians who pander to the wants and demands of these minorities strictly for their above said votes.

Now do you see how political correctness trumps that which is both morally right and many times even trumps laws already on the books. And it is all done in the name of diversity now being labeled as political correctness for they are indeed one in the same yet at the same time political correctness can stand alone as an entity solely unto itself.

Let me explain…simply…the push for diversity could not exist without political correctness fueling it on but political correctness can and does exist even if it does not have the concept of diversity itself to feed upon. Political correctness and it’s touchy-feely counterpart called ‘sensitivity’…you know where simple words might hurt some one’s itty-bitty feelings…has caused even the small differences that divide us to become almost insurmountable differences.

Remember, political correctness calls for silence…for specific designated things to remain unspoken. And if the political powers that be dictate that you cannot speak of the enemy, of race, of religion, of cultural differences, or even of political differences themselves, then the entire premise of diversity simply cannot exist for diversity needs…no it demands…conversation if it is to succeed otherwise diversity forced upon us becomes what amounts to both a tangible here-and-now physical invasion as well as an invasion of our thoughts…for politically ‘correct-speak’ regarding the invaders will eventually become the rule of the day.

And that is the point we are at today for in the name of diversity we are forced to tolerate those invading our shores…we are forced to accept those whose culture goes against everything our Judeo-Christian society believes in and holds dear…from religious beliefs to our societal norms as our country is turned upside down as political correctness itself, driven by a media out of control, becomes the consummate ‘Big Brother’ to watch over us all.

And you know what is the scariest thing of all…incidents like Minneapolis where “she didn’t have to die” are becoming all too commonplace, and when folks excuse those happenings or just push them aside because the politicians have us believing that diversity is more important than an innocent life lost, then you know this country is in truly serious trouble… even more than we ever thought so before.

Bottom line…I want…no…I demand…my red, white, and blue America back and diversity and political correctness be damned.

When Your Strategy Doesn’t Work- Check Your Tactics

Sun, 08/06/2017 - 5:13pm

The Republican House voted more than fifty times to repeal Obummercare. Even the Republican Senate did the same thing a few times while the Progressives’ Obamassiah was running the State and not just the Deep State.  Now that the Republicans have the whole shooting match they can’t seem to hit the target.

Maybe it’s the strategy of doing it all in one BIG omnibus bill filled with payoffs, bribes, and meant to restructure the entire healthcare industry in one fell swoop that is causing the problem.  I know, I know the perpetually re-elected love their omnibus mega-bills just because they can shoehorn in massive payoffs and bribes without anyone being the wiser, but this just isn’t working.

Besides if the vote in November was for anything it was for ending business as usual.  It was for reining in the two-headed Republicrat bird of prey.  It was for righting the Ship of State before it crashes on the reef of bankruptcy.  It was for taking control of our Republic from the technocrats and the professional socialist redistributionist hustlers and returning it to the hands of those who work to make America great, again.

Obviously from the on-going “There’s a Russian Under Every Bush” reality show in Congress the inmates are still running the asylum in the capital of the world.  The Republican variety of Progressives after all their valiant efforts to repeal Obummercare when there was no chance it would actually repeal Obummercare don’t really want to remove the government’s talons from one sixth of our economy.

An axiom of socialist logic is that once an entitlement is enacted it can never be repealed because the people become strung-out on the idea that someone owes them something.  Have you ever tried taking candy from a baby or a bone from a dog?  It adds up to about the same thing as trying to convince people addicted to free stuff that they don’t need the free stuff.

We have a President who wants to fulfill his campaign promises.  He wants to repeal Obummercare and replace it with sensible free market solutions, he wants to lower taxes for working people and small businesses, he wants to allow Corporations to re-patriate the hundreds of billions locked up overseas because of confiscatory taxes at home, and he wants to build the wall.  He wants to do all these things, and if he was able to do them we would once again have a health care system that is dynamic, cutting edge and providing the best care for the most people, the economy would take off like a rocket, and with the tide of migration stopped those who are here would have the breathing space to assimilate and become Americans.  If he could accomplish these things he would be a shoe-in for re-election and end up as one of the most successful presidents in History.  This is exactly why the best Congress money can buy will never pass any of these things.

Instead the plutocrats of the Potomac are playing legislative games.  They are using their Omnibus hand-jive to mask the fact that their repeal doesn’t really repeal very much.  They want to keep the taxes, keep the mandates, and keep the subsidies.  They want to bail out the insurance companies, payoff their donors, and pad the bill with bribes for every lobbyist and special interest group with enough clout to get skin in the game.

Luckily we have some watchmen on the walls who are using every megaphone they can find to warn us about the sow’s ear being passed off as a silk purse.  Senators like Rand Paul and Mike Lee are leading the fight.  Congressmen like Dave Brat are speaking truth to power and shining a light in the darkness.

If the Republicans were really serious about repeal and replace they wouldn’t use the omnibus absurdity, but they would instead deal with this in bite size chunks.  Repeal Obummercare and return the country to the status quo ante.  Then pass individual bills to make the changes they want to see.  For instance one bill to provide pre-existing condition coverage, another to allow insurance companies to sell across state lines, another for tort reform, another to streamline the FDA, etc.

All these bills could be just a few pages long written in Standard English instead of the hundreds and thousands of pages of insurance speak that clutter the omnibus monstrosities.

In other words, when your strategy doesn’t work check your tactics.  If the Mitch, Paul, and the GOP Pretenders were serious about fulfilling the campaign promises they made they would give us a hundred little victories instead of one major defeat.  But if they did that President Trump would succeed.  And if President Trump succeeds he points out the fact that we don’t need these professional politicians to run our world.  We can run it just fine ourselves.

US T-shirt company sells Nazi swastika design as “symbol of love and peace”

Sun, 08/06/2017 - 1:08pm

“The company even made a promotional video claiming that the Nazis ‘took the swastika, rotated it 45 degrees, and turned it into a symbol of hatred, fear, war, racism, power.’…”
On some of the tee shirts sold by KA Designs, the swastika remains turned by 45 degrees, similarly to the Nazis’ use of the symbol.”

Get the picture?

Given the Left’s fanatical hatred of Israel and wholesale acceptance of “Palestinian” jihad propaganda, this is unlikely to have been an accident.

“US T-shirt company sells swastika design as ‘symbol of love and peace,’” by Danielle Ziri, Jerusalem Post, August 6, 2017:

The US-based clothing design website Teespring is selling T-shirts and sweatshirts branded with swastikas, aiming to make them a “symbol of love and peace”.

The designs, created by KA Designs and sold on the site, all display large swastikas in the front. One shows the Nazi-associated symbol in rainbow colors with the word “Peace”, another one with the word “Zen”, one reading “Love” and a third design, in black, shows a spiral of swastikas. They range in price from $20 to $35.

“Here at KA we explore boundaries. We push them forward.” the company wrote as a description for the products. “Let’s make the swastika a symbol of Love and Peace. Together, we can succeed.”

Before being used by Hitler’s German Nazi regime, swastikas were commonly known as an ancient sign used by Hindus and Buddhists carrying positive associations such as auspiciousness and good fortune. KA Designs is attempting to relate the now negative sign to its origins.

The company even made a promotional video claiming that the Nazis “took the swastika, rotated it 45 degrees, and turned it into a symbol of hatred, fear, war, racism, power.”

“They stigmatized the swastika, they won, they limited our freedom, or maybe not?” the video continues. “The swastika is coming back.”

On some of the tee shirts sold by KA Designs, the swastika remains turned by 45 degrees, similarly to the Nazis’ use of the symbol.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, executive director of the Israeli-Jewish Congress and pro-Israel activist Arsen Ostrovsky called the shirts “obscene and disgusting.”

“It may have been a symbol of peace,” he wrote “That most certainly is not what it is primarily associated with today.”

Ostrovsky also pointed a finger at Teespring for seeking “to profit of this in the name of art, trying to turn this irredeemable Nazi symbol of hate and murder, into a symbol of ‘love and peace.’”

“They are not unique in this however, with a disturbingly growing pattern in recent years of other clothing companies seeking to do similar,” he told The Jerusalem Post. “This is not only highly naïve, but grossly offensive. What next, using ISIS symbol to promote gender equality?”

“Hopefully management will understand the magnitude of their mistake and offense caused, and discontinue these items immediately,” Ostrovsky concluded.

The issue has also been discussed online by the YouTube channel “The Open Debate”.

“When I initially saw it, I assumed that it was just a joke,” the person in the video said. “There are some things that just aren’t going to happen. When some people view this symbol, they don’t feel anything and can recognize it as whatever they’d like. For others, this symbol has a very deep history of hate, pain and suffering.”

The attempt to rebrand the swastika, he added will “most likely evoke a lot of emotions.”

The site Teespring.com has sold several swastika-branded shirts in the past, all referring to the Hindu meaning of the symbol.

Republican donor sues GOP for fraud over ObamaCare repeal failure

Sun, 08/06/2017 - 11:09am

A Republican donor in Virginia has filed a lawsuit against the national and Virginia Republican parties, accusing them of fraud and racketeering for raising millions of dollars in donations knowing they wouldn’t be able to repeal ObamaCare.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that Bob Heghmann, a retired attorney in Virginia Beach, filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court on Thursday. The suit blasts the Republican Party, saying it “has been engaged in a pattern of Racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well as some Independents and Democrats.”

The lawsuit’s defendants include the Republican National Committee (RNC) and the Republican Party of Virginia, as well as Virginia’s two members of the RNC and the chairman of the state Republican Party, John Whitbeck.

As part of his suit, Heghmann argues that the Republican Party does not hold the same protection that members of Congress have against being sued for failing to fulfill campaign promises. He wants the GOP to either threaten to withhold money from members of Congress if they don’t repeal ObamaCare, or return contributions to donors.

“If the candidates don’t deliver, it’s incumbent on the RNC to go to the candidate and say, ‘You can’t do this,’ ” Heghmann said, according to the Pilot.

Heghmann’s suit alleges that both the national and state GOP raised millions of dollars from 2009 to 2016 by promising to repeal ObamaCare, but that Republicans knew they would be unable to repeal the law when former President Obama won reelection in 2012.

The suit references comments made by former Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) when he said it was “clear … [that] ObamaCare is the law of the land” following Obama’s reelection.

“In making this statement Speaker Boehner was sending a message to House Republicans and others that Repeal was not going to happen. He was trying to put the issue to rest. … Nevertheless, the Republican Party continued to use the mails, wires and interstate commerce to solicit donations and votes to secure House and Senate majorities and ultimately the Presidency,” the lawsuit states, according to the Pilot.

It also accuses the national and state Republican parties of “never intend[ing] to implement the Trump Agenda or fulfill the promises of the Republican Platform” as it campaigned for President Trump’s election.

Senate Republicans’ bill to repeal ObamaCare failed last week after three Republicans broke with their party to oppose it. After the vote, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said, “It is time to move on.”

“What we tried to accomplish for the American people was the right thing for the country,” McConnell said. “I think the American people are going to regret that we couldn’t find another way forward.”
