Watch: Boston Protesters Tell Israeli Flag Wearing Trump Supporter to ‘Get the F—K Out&#

The Washington Examiner reports:  Among the eclectic throng of demonstrators in Boston on Saturday, a supporter of President Trump found himself surrounded by protesters who yelled profanities at him.

A man wearing an Israeli flag as a cape can be seen in a video shared by Univision’s Jessica Weiss, walking through a crowd of protesters. One person rips off his “Make America Great Again” and throws it away. Amid the obscenities directed at him, one protester shouted, “Get the # out of our # town.” Another person can be heard urging the other protesters not to be violent.—More…

Lonegan: House Leadership Must Kill the First Amendment Tax

You know our representatives have gone off the deep end when they begin considering imposing a tax on the First Amendment to raise more government revenue. But unfortunately, that’s the reality we’re now living in.

Recently, the Daily News and Washington Times reported that party leadership is considering replacing the failed border adjustment tax with revenue raisers from former Rep. Dave Camp’s (D-MI) 2014 tax reform plan. Allegedly, one of the top contenders for replacement is his old advertising tax provision, which would scrap advertising’s full deductibility as a business expense and make it only half deductible, with the other half being amortized over a ten-year period.—More…

Since We ‘Good Men’ Have Done Nothing

Lots of good reads begin with an old saying. Here then is one very relevant and applicable old saying:

“20 years experience cannot be supplanted by one year’s experience - 20 times.”

And that is a big part, a huge part, of the problem 21st-century America is struggling through right now. And not too many people seem to be mentioning it. But I must.

Angry Mobs Erasing American History

It wasn’t God, like the song said,  who made Honky Tonk Angels.  Nor is it God Almighty who is whipping up faux fury over statues that supposedly represent racism.  Barack Hussein Obama, through Black Lives Matter, did that.

Should you wonder about the intensity of the throngs of thousands out on the streets fomenting for Civil War 11, Obama had eight long years to orchestrate what we see unfolding before our very eyes today. 

In other words everything happening out there today was painstakingly put into place during eight long years of the Obama tenure.

The Technology of Yesteryear

The world around us is changing vertiginously. It’s not that I am getting older and my perspective has slowed down; technology and the way we live are being fundamentally transformed under our own eyes, but we are too busy to notice.

We seldom ponder how far and how fast technology has forever altered our lives and who we are as people because of it. We have become the automatons we’ve been warned about decades ago when we thought it was just science fiction designed to entertain us. But here we are.

In my six decades on earth, my life went from riding a rickety, smoke-spewing Diesel bus with holes in the floorboard, a bus that took one hour to transport us six miles to grandma’s house, a wagon full of grain or hay pulled by oxen which took me and grandpa to the corn and wheat grinding mill, a pink Pegasus bicycle with a white banana-shaped seat and a basket, and a soot-smelling train that stopped in every little village and took all day to go 100 miles, to fast-speed trains, supersonic airplanes, fast boats, trucks, SUVs, eighteen-wheelers, and fast cars.

From eclipse to the apocalyptic

The following may be a shock to urban centrists who think everything revolves around large population centers.

For some reason beyond my ken, I seem to end up in the epicenter of cultural change and, in some instances, chaos.

This is my third cycle in Northeast Oregon where landowners fight a pitched battle with environmentalists and their allies, state and federal government entities hiding behind protected wildlife to steal property rights and real estate.

America, Where Are You?

While media arguments over which side was to blame for the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia one week ago today, a total of six police officers were shot in Florida and Pennsylvania overnight. 

“Three people were in custody Friday night, including a “strong suspect,” after one police officer was fatally shot and another suffered grave injuries (Update: Second police officer dies in Florida shooting) in Kissimmee, Fla., south of Orlando. (Fox News, Aug. 19, 2017)

My fellow blacks, please: Stop wasting time on statues and solve today’s problems

Atlanta’s Bishop Jerome Dukes was quoted widely in the media last week explaining why he thinks we should be spending time protesting statues of people from the Confederacy, and ultimately having them taken down.

He explains that some of our nation’s founders may have seemed like visionaries and trailblazers to some, but to African-Americans all that matters is that they owned hundreds of slaves.

Looking for a new Career?

With the current “War on Monuments” just getting underway, new and lucrative jobs will be coming up soon, for example, for good stone masons and foundry workers.

After all, what is going to replace all the well-crafted monuments in the public squares of nearly every town in the country that may soon get torn down? Surely, these century-old town squares can’t be left empty, devoid of any visible memorials to the new age of revisionist thinking!

How about novel monuments extolling the virtues and inventors of modern windmills, solar panels, electric cars, computer chips, cell-phones, “alternative energy,” and so on?

Clearly, the modern version of the “Bildersturm” also needs novel icons of its own.

TRUMP’S ENEMIES ARE A CONFEDERACY OF COWARDS

A funny thing happened on the way to the Trump impeachment, the Russia story has vanished. Despite months of hyperventilating about the President being involved in nefarious “Russian collusion,” no evidence was actually produced. Despite a biased media, a biased special counsel and a legal team selected from the donor roll of the Democratic Party, Donald Trump is still President and still claiming that the whole campaign is a “witch hunt.”

With the Russian story going nowhere, the anti-Trump media, along with their deep state and political establishment colleagues, have found a new “cause celebre,” the President’s response to the Charlottesville, Virginia riots of last Saturday.

Fair trade for thee, but not for me

“Nobody wants to buy something that was made by exploiting someone else,” Ben & Jerry’s and Fair Trade co-founder Jerry Greenfield likes to tell us. Let’s hope he doesn’t drive an electric vehicle, doesn’t use a laptop or cell phone, and doesn’t rely on wind or solar power.

We’re constantly confronted with slogans and lectures about fair trade, human rights, sustainability, environmental and social justice, little people versus Big Corporations. Most of these subjective terms reflect perspectives and agendas of the political left, and are intended to advance those worldviews and stifle any discussion about them. But most of their self-avowed adherents never look beneath the surface of their own purchases. Indeed, they would have no standards at all if they didn’t have double standards.

California Gas-Fired Power Plant Files for Bankruptcy

The La Paloma natural gas plant in California filed for bankruptcy last December because it was not getting enough operating time to cover its costs due to solar and other renewable energy receiving preference. The plant, which serves as back-up to the state’s renewable generating technologies, was also denied a reliability charge by the state that would have allowed it to continue to operate. The owners project an annual loss of $39 million without a reliability contract or other support. In its bankruptcy filing, the plant owners listed assets of between $100 million and $500 million and liabilities of $500 million to $1 billion.1  La Paloma is a 1200-megawatt merchant plant located 110 miles northwest of Los Angeles and is able to serve both the San Francisco and Los Angeles markets.2

Tablo makes a DVR for cord cutters - while Kensington offers dual USB in its power adapter for trave

Dumping cable and/or satellite appears to be quite the trend these days but what happens, once you’ve gotten rid of the service, if you want to record your favourite programs for watching later? Equally important: how are you going to watch the shows in the first place?

Well, that’s the idea behind Nuvyyo’s Tablo DUAL, which the company claims is the first network-connected over-the-air (OTA) DVR to also include 40 hours’ worth of onboard high definition recording storage. In other words, it has a hard drive built in by which you can record your favourite TV broadcasts that spew into the air from your local TV stations.

Does VW’s Atlas hold the company’s future on its shoulders?

Volkswagen’s first all new SUV since the Tiguan is here, and it’s bigger, more angular - and more modern in VW’s inventory, than the Tiguan and the Touareg.  Will it be enough to help turn around any negative public impressions there may be coming out of the diesel kerfuffle of the past couple of years?

Who knows? I doubt one model could do that - though the Atlas is a darn fine place to start. Besides, I think the whole diesel thing was BS anyway - and a shame from consumers’ standpoints. That’s because, if I were to buy a vehicle today that was offered in gas or diesel, in most cases I’d opt for the diesel. Sure, they’re down on horsepower, but they generate gobs of torque, which is more important for the lead footed, plus they get terrific fuel mileage. And, though prices wobble wildly, diesel is often cheaper than gasoline.

Steve Bannon out at White House, back at Breitbart News

Friday is President Trump’s favorite day to fire/constructively dismiss people. Today the official leaving is my friend Chief Strategist Stephen K. Bannon, who was instrumental in Trump’s come-from-behind victory last November.

Whether this is good or bad for the Trump administration depends on where you sit. President Trump is fairly isolated. He has virtually no friends around him in the White House. Bannon’s departure means there will be very little ideological pressure on Trump, which could jeopardize the president’s anti-establishment agenda. The Left and the squish faction in the Republican Party now have the upper hand. National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, who has been purging plenty of good people, may now run wild.

Well, As Long as We’re Demolishing “Racist” Statues…

As long as the Left is determined to tear down historic symbols of racism, I say we help them out and point them toward some statues and portraits of real racist scumbags.  The country has any number of former Democrat racist “worthies” that will fit the bill quite nicely.

A hat tip here to the actor James Woods for suggesting that we tear down a statue of the late Democratic Senator Robert Byrd.  Seems to me that Byrd, who was once an “Exalted Cyclops” in the Ku Klux Klan (a position that the reviled Robert E. Lee never dreamed of holding) is a prime candidate for black racists to scrub from history.  Byrd, the so-called “Conscience of the Senate” once filibustered for 14 hours against civil rights for blacks.  Why aren’t blacks demanding that statues honoring him be removed?

Raheem Kassam: ‘Now Steve Bannon Knows Who The Enemies of the American People Are’

Steve Bannon, the outgoing White House chief strategist now “knows who the enemies of the American people are” after seven months working within the government, Breitbart London editor in chief Raheem Kassam has said.

Speaking in a discussion on Fox News with anchor Martha MacCallum on the departure of Mr Bannon from the White House, Mr Kassam said the move didn’t mean there had been a falling out between the President and the returning Breitbart boss.—More…
