Anti-Democratic Body Slam May Save Democracy in USA

Body slamming a reporter is a reprehensible anti-democratic act, even if in reaction to a reprehensible provocation, but it may save democracy in the United States if it finally motivates “liberals” to slam and eliminate – or at least cut back – early voting. There is a sense that the people who voted prior to Election Day in Montana made the difference in electing the candidate in Montana who body-slammed a reporter. As a result, enough people in America may finally be motivated to eliminate or cut back early voting, even if for the wrong reason.

Early voting – especially weeks in advance—is anti-democratic for a few reasons.

  1. It increases the chances of voter fraud;
  2. it increases the chances a person may vote more than once;
  3. it increases the chances a person may vote in more than one jurisdiction;
  4. it increases the chances a person may forge his/her name before voting;
  5. it furthers the chances of voter fraud in the absence of requiring voters to identify themselves before voting;
  6. it unlevels the “playing field”;
  7. it enables voters to vote on essentially two differently perceived candidates,
  8. it allows people to vote on a candidate before he or she changes his/her position on any number of issues; and, perhaps above all,
  9. it encourages people to vote on a person without having the most complete understanding of the candidate that is possible on Election Day.

NATO Alliance Members Fighting Trump Not Terrorism

It was an iconic picture worth framing, one that should never be allowed to pass into obscurity.  Here were the so-called Western ‘leaders’ on public display just three days after the horrific Islamist terrorist attack in Manchester, gathered together for a photo-op at NATO’s new $1.2 billion headquarters in Brussels, a safe and fortified bunker for the elite while their people remain vulnerable to the horrors of Islamist terrorism.

Some of them actually bristled that U.S. President Donald Trump dared call attention to the loss of 22 lives and the scores of injured at yet another Islamist terrorist attack, in the wake of telling a group of Muslim leaders in Saudi Arabia, “Drive them (the terrorists) out. Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy land and drive them out of this earth.”

Words forever lost on Western leaders whose hearts aren’t really in the fight against terrorism and who see fighting Trump as far more important than fighting terrorism.

Mark Zuckerberg: Government should give everyone a guaranteed minimum income without work

He is not the first to tout this idea. In fact, it’s been a favorite of Bernie Bro types for a while now. But it’s one thing when some lefty chucklehead on Facebook is pushing the idea of a universal, guaranteed minimum income for everyone - provided by the government with no work requirement whatsoever. It’s another thing when one of the richest and most influential people in the world signs on.

Some will suggest this is a signal Zuckerberg wants to run for office. I really don’t care one way or the other about that. I’d rather focus on merits (or lack thereof) of the idea itself, because it says a lot about the way kings of the technology sector (not to mention certain other industries) have taken to thinking.

Why should everyone get free money from the government, Mark Zuckerberg? Apparently because, if they didn’t have to worry about food or shelter, they could focus their energies on building more great things like Facebook:

Progressives and Jihadists: A Multicultural Matrimony of Cultural Genocide Wedded in Bliss

Assimilation is a crime against humanity…There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam, and that’s it…The mosques are our barracks, the minarets our bayonets, the cupolas our helmets, and the faithful our soldiers. -- Tyyip Erdogan, President of Turkey, 2008

The progressive altar of multiculturalism and diversity was bloodied yet again with the lives of the innocent.  Many young girls, one as young as eight, were savagely murdered by a 22-year-old Islamic suicide-bombing loser who detonated a bomb full of nails, bolts and other shrapnel. Twenty-two innocent people murdered, families obliterated, dozens maimed and scarred for life by, yet again, another Muslim male.

Ariana Grande and Salman Abedi – Both Deeply Deceived


It goes without saying that the loss of the young lives in Manchester England is a tragedy of the highest order. Even though they were chasing a pop-culture pipe dream they were subject to the kind of treatment that no one should ever have to endure.

What is hard to escape is the picture the media paints of kids just having fun as a seemingly good thing, being interrupted by the pure evil of a crazed Islamic terrorist without regard for their perfect innocence.

It seems a closer look at what drew these teeny boppers into the arena could stand a great deal more scrutiny.

Scarborough: You know who’s to blame for that candidate punching that reporter? Donald Trump

I longer Scarborough can keep up the I’m-a-Republican-but-this-all-troubles-me-so-much schtick. Scarborough is first and foremost a creature of the Beltway culture. His party affiliation is hardly worth a footnote given that his job is to cater to mindset of the political class.

Now, normal people (present company included) will offer no excuses for Greg Gianforte’s assault of a journalist, regardless of how obnoxious the guy’s behavior may have been, or how much we may think the journalism profession in general deserves one big body slam. There’s no excuse for it. No one will make any.

That’s what normal people do. Creatures of the Beltway, on the other hand, say things like this:

GOP “Body Slam” Win in Montana Proves Trump Revolution Still Strong!

Mainstream media, joined at the hip with desperate Democrat loons, created a political narrative which postulated an abrupt end to the Trump Revolution highlighted by an ominious(for the GOP) loss of a Republican seat in the House of Representatives in a special election held in Montana on Thursday.

Expectations were enhanced when the GOP candidate, Greg Gianforter, took exception to offensive actions by a biased reporter and used a “body slam” to take the offending reporter down, an act for which Gianforter was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor assault just hours before the polls opened for the election.

Pelosi promises: Give us back the house, and we’ll give you $15 an hour

Of all the Dems hare-brained schemes, the “fight for fifteen” has to be one of the most idiotic. It’s a plan that will decimate jobs for young people, force corporations to eviscerate their workforces in favor of robots, send manufacturing businesses overseas, devalue the wages people are already earning, drive up the price of virtually everything you buy at retail and, in the end, will succeed only in raising the poverty line to a new, higher, level.

It really is just monumentally stupid.

But, if you’re not too bright, I suppose it sounds good.  That’s why, ever eager to pander, Nancy Pelosi is using it as a sort of electoral carrot. Vote for Democrats, and she promises they’ll make sure $15 an hour becomes the new definition of “working for peanuts.”

Bernie Sanders, whose wife loves Iranian elections, sure does seem to think this a great idea, huh?

Republican wins Montana special election after being charged with assaulting a reporter

You were supposed to care.  Not just a little bit, either. You were really supposed to care.  In fact, you were supposed to be so outraged after Republican Greg Gianforte body slammed a reporter that the Democrats would take a safe GOP district in a landslide.

Apparently, you didn’t care.

Gianforte won his special election despite (or maybe because of) his ill-advised decision to flatten a member of the press.

Trump: Making Us Proud Shining Abroad

The elegance, wisdom and class President Trump has displayed on his first foreign policy trip continues to baffle political elitists and fake news media. 1 Corinthians 1:27 comes to mind. “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.”

Trump is a man of the people who speaks like a human being. Obama spoke like an arrogant blowhard. He spoke so high above us commoners that it took Leftist professors to explain the brilliance of his oratory.

Netanyahu’s challenge with Trump

On Thursday, less than 48 hours after US President Donald Trump completed his successful visit to Israel, his chief negotiator Jason Greenblatt was back in town.

On Wednesday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson set the tone for Greenblatt’s mission when he told reporters aboard Air Force One that during his visit, Trump “was putting a lot of pressure” on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and PLO chief Mahmoud Abbas “to get back to the table” and negotiate a peace deal.

Tillerson went on to explain why Trump is so keen to make a deal.

“We solve the Israeli-Palestinian peace dilemma, we start solving a lot of the peace throughout the Middle East region,” he said.

Why the constant earthquakes? Iceland is slowly being torn apart

In an average week Iceland’s national monitoring seismic network detects around 500 earthquakes. If one of the volcanoes is hit by an earthquake swarm this number can be even higher.

The reason for this seismic activity is the location of Iceland on top the Atlantic ridge, the divergent boundary between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates: As the two plates drift in opposite directions Iceland is in effect slowly being split apart. The rate of spreading along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge averages about 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) per year, or 25 kilometers (15.5 miles) in a million years.—More..

On to SCOTUS? Virginia appeals court refuses to reinstate Trump’s travel ban

It’s come to this: The federal judiciary now believes it has to right to throw out perfectly legal actions that are within the president’s authority, if in the personal opinions of the federal judges, the president might have had a motive they don’t like. We’re now making up the law as we go along:

The U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia on Thursday refused to reinstate President Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban for six Muslim-majority nations, in another legal blow to the White House.

A majority of judges on the appeals court, in a 10-3 decision, said they were “unconvinced” the travel order had more to do with national security concerns than a “Muslim ban.”

Train of Thoughts

Am I reading right? A (railway) train jumped the tracks, right in a major city’s main train station? Perhaps I misread that (reminder to myself: get an eye-checkup forthwith!) —that must be a MISPRINT!

Doesn’t everyone know that we now live in the 21st century, with all the promises of “autonomous cars” (and everything else) “connected” to the mysterious “internet of things”? And trains run on a couple of tracks, not like cars that can meander all over the road and further afield? If the (relatively) few trains can’t keep on the track, what may happen when millions of autonomous cars are supposed to be on the road – I shudder to think of it.

This year my vacation will be time away from the insanity in Washington, DC.

I’ve decided to allow myself a summer vacation. Haven’t had one since probably 8th grade, after that I had summer jobs.This year, it will be a little different, primarily because I am retired. This year my vacation will be time away from the insanity in Washington, DC.

As I see it, every media outlet reports the news as they prefer to see it, not as it is. They choose to avoid information that goes against their agenda. They over use “breaking news”, “bombshell”, “this just in”, “stunning revelation”, etc. to capture our attention for even the most mundane information.

International news, except as it pertains to our President, is pretty much nonexistent. Stories like the mess socialism has created in Venezuela are under reported. Except in rare cases, the activities of Bill or Hillary, George W. or Barack, are of little interest to me.

So, for the summer, I’ll check the weather, watch some Andy Griffith reruns, read a book, anything except fuel the media frenzy and my own anxiety.

America’s First Revolution against a Deep State

It happened in 1776 – America’s first revolution against a Deep State. 

President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to “Drain the Swamp,” if fulfilled, will bring a second revolution against a Deep State.

The first Deep State in America was foreign born in 18th Century England. It impacted the Colonies through the Crown’s operatives and emissaries, some American born – some British. 

Today’s American Deep State is born and bred in the United States. We Americans own it -  it’s ours free-and-clear.
