THE BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT IN TRUMP PRESIDENCY

By Jeff Crouere

THE BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT IN TRUMP PRESIDENCY
In this first 300 days, President Trump has faced intense opposition from a variety of enemies. Of course, Democrats and the media have been opposed to everything he has proposed. The “deep state” bureaucrats have proven to be a formidable adversary as well. Unfortunately, “Never Trump” conservatives and establishment Republicans have also been very uncooperative.



Defending Judge Roy Moore

By Jim ONeill

Roy Moore
Let me say up front that I am not a huge Roy Moore fan, but I will take him any day of the week over the Democrat, RINO, and GOPe pearl clutching poseurs currently swooning over his purported behavior four decades ago.

IDEOLOGY SHOULDN’T TRUMP SCIENCE IN SEX ED CURRICULA

By Lance Izumi, J.D. and Lauren Geary, Ph.D.

IDEOLOGY SHOULDN’T TRUMP SCIENCE IN SEX ED CURRICULA
In a November Pew Research Center poll, an amazing 77 percent of Democrats with a bachelor’s degree or higher believed that a person’s gender “can be different from the sex they were assigned at birth.”  Yet, the scientific evidence is much less clear, and this conflict between science and popular belief is why the Trump administration has just announced a new research effort to ensure that sex education programs “follow the science to improve youth health and well being.”

Moore and the yearbook

Moore and the yearbook
Many women have now come forward with allegations that Roy Moore harassed, fondled, or otherwise solicited them, the two most serious coming from women who claimed they were 14 and 16 at the time. Moore has consistently denied wrongdoing. His claims have been supported by other Alabamans who have known him for years.

The UN Takes Aim at Artificial Intelligence Autonomous Weapons

By Joseph A. Klein

The UN Takes Aim at Artificial Intelligence Autonomous Weapons
“You are my creator, but I am your master; obey!” This chilling line from Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, published just shy of 200 years ago, is an apt description of the potential power of artificial intelligence over mankind that mankind has created. These systems are designed to emulate human intelligence and learn on their own.  They have many potential applications, including in warfare.



The Obama Uranium-1 Story even FOX News Won’t Speak About!

The Obama Uranium-1 Story even FOX News Won't Speak About!
Midday on November 14th, FOX News talking head Shepard Smith, whom we might charitably label as a liberal non-heterosexual who may not like Donald Trump, meaning his politics have everything to do with his sexual preferences and whom he would vote for, and very little to do with reality, gave the nation a much-needed reality check.

Congressmen exposing their genitals on the House floor—getting to go unnamed

Congressman exposing their genitals on the House floor
Anthony Weiner is in the slammer for exposing his genitals via Internet photos,  but congressmen who expose their genitals and grab private parts—on the House floor—not only get away with it but get the privilege of going unnamed.

Genital-exposing politicians (GEP, for short) are said to come from both the Democrat and Republican parties, and, incredibly find protection in the system as it stands.

President Robert Mugabe and Family Thrown out of Power in Zimbabwe
My heart goes out over many miles to the long-suffering people of Zimbabwe this morning, as I learned that Robert Mugabe’s decades-long chokehold on power there appears to have come to an end.

The Daily Mail is reporting that the military has taken power in Zimbabwe.

The News Can Kill You and is doing it to Targeted Enemies Every Day

The News Can Kill You and is doing it to Targeted Enemies Every Day
The News can kill you.  The News of the day is now a weapon as deadly as any other.

“Who, What, Where, When and Why”  the 5-Ws the News was weaned on are now: “TAKE HIM (HER) DOWN!”

Does “pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it“, sound familiar to you?

Parents need to tell Google to Take Their YouTube-Kids-App Down
Generations Y (Millennials) and Z (Centennials): this is what your little children are now watching on shocking, mass-distributed Internet videos.

In so-called ‘child-friendly’, ‘family-friendly’ cartoons of the day, millions of your children are watching Spider-Man urinating on Elsa from ‘Frozen’; Mickey Mouse hit by a car and lying there dying in front of a crying Minnie; Pippa the Pig being tortured while screaming and crying.

Leftists Snowflakes go from “Cry Me A River” to “Scream Me a Revolution!”

By Judi McLeod

Snowflake leftist malcontents who went from “Cry Me A River” to “Scream Me a Revolution” in protest to Donald Trump’s election as president gathered in approximately 25 cities last night to “scream helplessly at the sky”.

Leftists Snowflakes go from Cry Me A River to Scream Me a Revolution!,
You can’t make this surrealistic stuff up, only screamers can.

The most important pronoun in describing their crying and screaming antics is “ME!” “ME!” “ME!”

The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street

Twilight Zone, Capitol Hill
In episode 22 of the first season of the Twilight Zone, space aliens decide to descend upon a quiet neighborhood to test the fragility of the human occupants, remove them from their comfort zone and watch their reactions. They observe the reaction to electricity being turned off on most of the homes while leaving a few others untouched. Autos all over the neighborhood were unable to start while a few others appear normal. The episode ends with the once quiet neighborhood in panic with fighting, finger pointing, suspicion and prejudice. Human fragility indeed. All this to test methods of invasion by the aliens at a later date.

Colin Kaepernick is no Muhammad Ali

Colin Kaepernick is no Muhammad Ali,
GQ magazine named former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick its 2017 “Citizen of the Year.” In doing so, GQ overlooked NFL Houston Texans’ J.J. Watt, who raised some $37 million for hurricane relief. Many of Kaepernick’s supporters liken his protest to that of boxer Muhammad Ali, who refused to be inducted into the military. The comparison is not well-taken.



AL FRANKEN, SEXUAL PREDATOR

AL FRANKEN, SEXUAL PREDATOR
Radio host Leeann Tweeden’s apparently well-founded claim that Democrat Sen. Al Franken, the professional vulgarian and former comedian who has a long, well-documented track record of making crude remarks about sexually assaulting women, kissed and groped her without her consent, is sending shock waves through Democratic Party circles and the mainstream media.

The Lowdown On Getting High In Canada

The Lowdown On Getting High In Canada, Legal Marijuana
A $22.6 billion market!

When pot advocates like Marc Emery - the Canadian who ended up in a U.S. jail for selling strains of marijuana seeds over the Internet - referred to the illegality of smoking pot as “prohibition”, a lot of Canadians rolled their eyes. The idea that smoking recreational pot is akin to illegal alcohol consumption in the 1920’s and very early 1930s in the U.S. seemed a little rich.

Judging Roy Moore

Judging Roy Moore
Can someone figure out who you are today by examining your actions from 39 years ago?  I am not who I was 39 years ago, or 29 years ago, or 9 years ago.  As human beings, we tend to learn, grow and mature.

Hypocrites on the right – convicting without a trial
There is a problem here. Republican office holders and so-called conservative pundits are all jumping on the bandwagon to convict Judge Roy Moore based on their northeastern customs. Yes, this includes all the Fox personalities televising their holier-than-thou judgments out of New York Central along with the D.C. swamp.

VIDEO: Perp thinks he's pretty funny dancing during arrest . . until cops send in the dog, Bad guy boogie
I know this one feels kind of clickbaity, but I offer two defenses of myself: 1) Having reached the very mature age of 51 about 10 hours ago, I’ll decide what’s postworthy, thank you very much; 2) I actually see something serious and noteworthy in this. There’s a segment of the population that’s developed such a caustic antipathy toward police that they actually think it’s pretty damn funny to taunt the cops like this. Be a hero on Twitter by dancing for the cops while they’re trying to arrest you! Impress your friends!

MSNBC gets woke: Mika says Bill Clinton was a ‘predator’ who harassed Lewinsky

MSNBC gets woke: Mika says Bill Clinton was a 'predator' who harassed LewinskyYears ago, I did a radio interview in which a member of the Detroit Free Press editorial board argued that people like Robert Byrd and Bill Clinton had basically earned the free passes they’d been given by the left. It seems that - after their horrible transgressions - they’d “voted to support” the issues liberals supported, and that was more important than who they may have raped, assaulted, or the years they spent recruiting for the Ku Klux Klan. To this day, I view that interview as the most succinct summation of the Democrat mentality that I’ve ever witnessed.

The Right Man for Healing and a Rare Find

The Right Man for Healing and a Rare Find
I was not sure my ENT specialist was a good fit for me even though I read the glowing praises framed on his office walls, praises coming from his patients, colleagues, and other doctors. The young man seemed to know what he was doing but his bedside manner was brief and rather cold.
I attributed his demeanor to his introverted personality, his professionalism, and to his respect for his patients’ time. Very punctual, he very seldom made anybody wait to see him, he was always on time.
