Europe Living The Time Machine

May 27, 2017 — Ray DiLorenzo

Like in the H.G. Wells classic, The Time Machine, Europe is living the fictional nightmare of being led to the slaughter, unable or unwilling to grasp the gravity of their predicament. They have opened their borders to millions of immigrants with a vastly different culture and belief system. Many are nothing more than cave-dwelling Morlocks feeding on Europe’s submissive and compliant citizenry. Numerous other migrants and their offspring demonstrate resistance and downright refusal to assimilate, living in their own little Morlock world of suspicion and hate.

The leaders of Europe doggedly assure their people that everything is normal. The mayor of Manchester mutters ‘It’s business as usual.” Business as usual? Is this what it has come to…total acquiescence…the new normal? Most leaders in Europe, and many in America, have proven themselves to be impotent. People die violent deaths while they strut around as if they have the answers, but they have no answers.  They have no solutions.

And The Sleaze Goes On

May 20, 2017 — Ray DiLorenzo

To all you sleaze bag politicians, true believers on the left, the phony establishment right and corrupt media pundits. You Never-Trumpers like John McCain, the political opportunist, who can never decide what side he’s on, and the Hollywood types who only speak in complete sentences when reading a script…you all act like a coup had taken place and you must mobilize the troops and save America.

Ok, I get it.  You didn’t vote for Trump. Your candidate didn’t make the cut. Your party lost. How sad…been there… so you’re going to go on talk shows or write major stories about Trump based on nothing more than rumor and inuendo and are more than willing to turn the country inside out and risk civil war?

To Kill A King

May 13, 2017 — Ray DiLorenzo

Thou Shalt Not Murder…the moral imperative in the Ten Commandments. But what if you destroy a person so he or she can no longer function normally? Is that murder in a practical sense? Is that not breaking the spirit of the law?

Ok, we’re not talking about physical murder or a king, for that matter. We are talking about viciously attempting to destroy a president’s ability to perform his constitutional duties, deconstructing his administration to functional impotence, making him unable to accomplish what he was elected to do.

Our Sick Health Care System

May 6, 2017 — Ray DiLorenzo

One way or another, we will have socialized medicine in this country. Politicians have raised and nurtured generations of people that expect something for nothing in exchange for votes.  We have imported, legally and illegally, millions of uneducated, unskilled workers that can’t afford a band-aid. We have millions of students ‘graduating’ high school that can’t read, thus, unable to get a good job with health insurance.

We have a health care system where the middle class is strapped with not only their health care bills, but the bills of the people who did not pay. We have a health care system that cannot or will not control its costs of care while the number of people able to afford it dwindles. We have a system where an MRI costs $6,000 in one hospital, $4500 in another hospital and $250 in another hospital if you can pay cash.

Straighten Up and Fly Right

May 6, 2017 — Ray DiLorenzo

Yelling and screaming, fist fights, being dragged by your heels out the door, seats not built for the average human form, lavatory not available when you HAVE to go even though it is in perfect working order…some trashy night club?...NO, it’s the airline you’re flying.

We gave up meals.  We gave up snacks.  We gave up peanuts.  We gave up service.  We gave up being treated with dignity and now, believe it or not, American Airlines has just announced that we are giving up any legroom left by DECREASING it further in their new 737 Max aircraft. All to fit ten more seats into the airplane.  No shoe horns will be provided.

Trump’s Cuban Missile Crisis

Apr 29, 2017 — Ray DiLorenzo

I remember the Cuban Missile Crisis. I was young, very interested in current events and enamored with President Kennedy. 

I remember when Kennedy ran for president. He spoke outside our church in BrooklyIn. Just before he finished his short speech, I ran to a corner where I thought he would pass in his open car and waited. I lucked out.  His car passed where I was hoping it would. I was the only one on that street corner. I waved, he waved back. For a brief moment, we looked at each other. My only claim to having met a future president.

October, 1962. I still remember the tension in the air.  Seeing the movement of troops on TV. Walter Cronkite. Watching President Kennedy firmly citing the Monroe Doctrine as a basis for an eyeball to eyeball, toe to toe confrontation with the Soviet Union, what President Reagan would later call, the Evil Empire.

Berkeley Invites Ann Coulter. Berkeley Cancels Ann Coulter. Berkeley Invites Ann Coulter, But

Apr 22, 2017 — Ray DiLorenzo

Free speech is not merely under attack at Berkeley, the students are attempting to inflict a death blow.  First Amendment?  They will have none of it.

Ann Coulter, well known conservative speaker, was invited to Berkeley to speak on April 27th. Berkeley then announced arbitrary restrictions. She agreed. Berkeley then canceled her speech for ‘security’ concerns.  She said she will appear anyway.  Berkeley then said they will allow her to speak on May 2nd (when classes are out and no one is there).  Coulter turned down the new date and repeated that she will speak on April 27th.

Liberals: Clever, But Oblivious

Apr 15, 2017 — Ray DiLorenzo

Among the great mysteries of the universe are questions the lucid among mankind have asked for generations…such as:

Why are liberals so enamored with Islam and so hostile towards Christianity?Islamists, if given the opportunity, would behead every godless liberal they found.

Why do liberals want to protect violent criminals and condemned prisoners, but are willing to kill the unborn right up to the time of birth?

Drain the Swamp, But First Clear the Fog

Apr 8, 2017 — Ray DiLorenzo

Washington, D.C. is a Hollywood fog machine, a city of muddy water, a place where answers to questions are head scratchers and smiles and cordiality earn Oscar nominations. President Truman said it well, “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.”

Democrats, aided by their many friends in the media, are not working toward good government. They are spending all of their time working toward bad government…trying desperately to de-legitimize President Trump any way they can.

What To Do About Sanctuary Cities

Apr 1, 2017 — Ray DiLorenzo

The problem of sanctuary cities is no longer a social issue, it is now firmly a public safety issue – a public safety issue ignored by many cities.

Criminal alien crime is at levels never before seen. The states, in cooperation with the mainstream media, are satisfied to leave the public ignorant as to the extent of the problem. Many in the MSM don’t even allow the term ‘illegal immigrant’ to appear in print. Most states do not publish stats nor does the media report on illegal alien crime lest it becomes heated conversation at the dinner table. The stats are out there, waiting to be released or dug out of hiding.

Women’s March on Washington - Useful Idiots Unite

Jan 27, 2017 — Ray DiLorenzo

The Women’s March on Washington and other cities has effectively demonstrated the division in our nation.  One side wants to conserve our ideals while the other side demands an end to our Judeo-Christian principles and faith.

In the process, these protesters are being unknowingly manipulated by Islamists, Anarchists and Communists, much of it financed by George Soros.  The formula is simple.  You find impressionable or unhappy people, tell them their misery is not their fault and then build a fire underneath them.

The Great Non-Story or Excuse #236

Dec 16, 2016 — Ray DiLorenzo

This election sold more antacid pills, caused more counseling appointments and maybe turned more sober liberals into drunks than any election in my lifetime. They refuse to believe it could happen in the U.S. of A. where billions of dollars and at least 50 years were spent patiently transforming the mass media, much of our federal and state bureaucracy and the entire education system into slobbering disciples of ‘progressive’ re-education, big government theology, political correctness and safe zones.

The left is working frantically to try to either, win the election for Hillary by whatever means necessary, or to de-legitimize the Trump presidency before he even takes the oath.

Indoctrinating the Young in Hate Factories

Dec 4, 2016 — Ray DiLorenzo

If you want to learn to hate America, your nearest public school or college is waiting for you.  If it is a university you want to attend, don’t worry about the cost, the government (taxpayers) will pick up the tab as student loans are about to be forgiven to the tune of $108 billion and will probably go much higher.

Our schools across the country have created and nurtured millions of godless, America-hating, angry, statist, whiny, cry babies and we will all be paying dearly for it, now and in the future.

We Let It Happen

Jun 10, 2016 — Ray DiLorenzo

Our beloved country, the United States of America, freedom’s last safest place, is being taken over by godless secularists and Marxists.  They said they would do it and we let it happen.  We bought it with the lure of liberalism, social justice, and fair play.  We were lazy and apathetic.

Fully half of the population of this nation is willing to vote for a candidate that is thoroughly corrupt and a serial liar.  These people, for the most part, know she is rotten to her very core, but are willing to vote for her because, after 50 years of Marxist indoctrination in our schools and universities, if given the choice, they prefer a country without God, without limits, without a moral standard, without an economic system that requires individual achievement.

Torches and Pitchforks

Apr 27, 2016 — Ray DiLorenzo

No, this is not an article suggesting that we storm the castle of government, armed with torches and pitchforks, demanding redress, although many would say it is about time.  That mob shown in the photo represents the 60% of Democrats demanding or embracing communism (Politico).  Spare me the usual substitute cliché like socialist, progressive, liberal or the left.  It is merely lipstick on a pig.

A communist takeover of our nation has been underway for many decades. Our education system, while we were sleeping, has been busy indoctrinating and beguiling our youth, many of them now in government and education or attending Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton rallies.  And we continue to sleep.
