Global Warming to Freedom

Power is an interesting concept. An access to power can be bought, obtained by force, or even through treason, but keeping it depends only on people.

When dissatisfied with management, “folks” first choose a direction, then a leader who is going their way. Right now citizens of several countries are clearly turning to the right.

The fact that politicians tend to grow into their chairs and cling to privilege, is nothing new; however blatant smear campaigns and pretending that “all the world wants us to rule” turns the electoral process into a pathetic spectacle.

Trump Prospects Brighten, Much to Chagrin of Hostile Media, RINOs!

Donald Trump continues to defy conventional wisdom and outsmart the corrupt coalition of RINO Republicans and hostile media when it comes to the 2016 presidential sweepstakes, as the race officially enters the “dog days” of the most intense, bitter struggle for power in the history of American politics.

Some polls indicate that The Donald enjoys a five- plus point advantage over his corrupt, low-energy, sickly rival, Hillary Clinton, who despite outspending Trump by tens of millions of dollars, trails the populist billionaire as the race enters the final decisive days.

Another first was achieved in the Obama administration, but it is not a first the president is happy about.

Congress successfully overrode President Obama’s veto of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, or JASTA, making the bill law without his signature. The veto was 12th of his presidency but the very first to be overridden.

The measure cleared the Senate on a vote of 97 to 1. The sole dissenter was Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) who leaves office in a few months. The House vote was 348 to 77.

CCRKBA Calls On Oregon Judge To Resign After Anti-Gun Remarks

BELLEVUE, WA – The Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms today called on Multnomah County Circuit Court Judge Kenneth Walker to step down from the bench after launching an anti-gun-rights tirade in court earlier this week in which he stated that firearms “are a scourge of this country and no one should have one as far as I’m concerned.”

“Judge Walker is entitled to his opinion,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “but he should not use the bench as a bully pulpit to attack a constitutionally-protected civil right. Just because he had to sentence a criminal to prison for brutally murdering another man in 2014 is no excuse for this kind of rhetoric.”

Obama handing The Peoples’ Internet to Communist China

There’s not even the slightest shadow of a doubt about to whom President Barack Obama is handing-off the Internet at midnight tonight if the four Republican attorneys general making an 11th-hour bid to block him do not succeed in the lawsuit they filed yesterday.

Obama is handing control of the Internet over to the United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU).  ITU is run by the Peoples Republic of China.

“Already under fire for seeking to usurp new powers to control the Internet, the United Nations International Telecommunications Union (ITU) is facing intense criticism after appointing a Chinese Communist to lead the controversial UN agency starting next year. (The New American, Oct. 27, 2014.)

The Great Debate

Once again, let me preface my comments and thoughts on the Hofstra presidential debate by making it very clear to you all that, I am, first and foremost a staunch republican, a tried-and-true conservative and a steadfast supporter of Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States of America.  Just about a month ago, on August 29th, I took to writing my article ‘I Hope I am Wrong’.  In it, I kindheartedly conceded the victory of the next presidential elections to Hillary Clinton by virtue of the fact, that a great majority of Americans, simply put, have succumbed to a culture of Marxism and Communism, readily perceived in just about every fabric of our New Republic – a culture led by Barack Obama with his commitment of transforming this great nation made back on October 30th, 2008, just before he was elected as the 44th president of the U.S. – a commitment which will be unreservedly continued by Hillary Clinton, were she to become the next president of the United States. 

No sooner had I published my capitulation article, in the weeks that followed, all national polls soon began to prove me wrong, showing Mr. Trump’s legendary come-from-behind race for the presidency, as margins tightened and the tie turned in Trump’s favor even in some key swing states, such as Iowa, North Carolina and Ohio, while in others, like Nevada and Florida, polls showed both candidates being in a dead-heat well within the margins of error.  Before I knew it then, polls were making me second-guess myself as to my unwanted concession, and, in fact, even made me think twice, on how wrong I could be, paying homage, if you will, to the title chosen for my article – mind you, a blessing in disguise when it is all said and done.

The trick is up – Forget sleight of hand Hillary

This is war and is the worldview clash of the century with Clinton and Trump.  Never forget this as you peer through the magic looking glass for debate 2 and 3 and see the smooth and lipstick laden Hillary doing what she does in her magic show.  She distracts, she plays pretend with ‘fact checks’ attacking Trump with disjointed assaults that don’t exist in any real and fair context.  She lies, cheats and steals as she arrogantly smiles away with bright red lipstick smeared on her teeth.  She is no ‘first woman’ anything but rather the last woman on earth any one of us should want in the White House running anything.

Never forget that Hillary is a political side show magician.  She will always lie, maneuver with hopes people aren’t looking and deceive.  Her long time and only agenda ever in her fraudulent career has been to gain and keep money and power – the end. 

All the talk in the well rehearsed and ‘sleight of hand’ first debate was Hillary working on the side with Holt and assaulting Trump with things out of context and below the belt over and over.  Her game was to make ‘the billionaire bully’ explode and look bad.  Trump, obviously held back in the face of a very tilted, liberal and unfair debate.

Asked to define the middle class, Hillary fails - drifts into miserable, meaningless, word salad

Hillary Clinton has vowed, many, many, times, not to “raise taxes on the middle class.”  The middle class, she’ll argue, must be protected, encouraged, nurtured, and grown. That’s super, but if you ask her to define the middle class, things tend not to go so well. In fact, it appears she doesn’t really know what she thinks the middle class actually is.

Take a look at what happened when a reporter asked her for a concrete definition of Hillary’s favorite voting bloc:

Hillary: ‘We have laws in our country’ and Trump puts his ‘personal business interests’ ahead of the

This week, Newsweek accused a company controlled by Donald Trump of either doing, or attempting to do, business in Fidel Castro’s communist Cuba. The story is still shaking out and, so far, Trump’s campaign has not commented. I won’t sugar coat it.  If it’s true, it’s going to be a problem for the Donald.

However, the fact that Hillary Clinton has decided to pounce on the story is absolutely laughable.  Check out this clip, where she accuses Donald Trump of being a scofflaw who puts his private financial concerns ahead of the nation’s welfare.

That’s right. She basically accuses him of being just like Hillary Clinton:

Philippines president: You know who I want to be like? Hitler

Most observers of politics recognize it’s among the cheapest of ploys to compare your political opponents to Hitler. Not only is just about never accurate, but when that’s what you have to resort to, you show yourself completely incapable of defending your own ideas or explaining the problems you have with your opponents’ ideas.

Comparing another person to Hitler is simply pathetic, idiotic and wrong.

But what about comparing yourself to Hitler? Well that’s a . . . novel approach, to say the least. But you do you, I guess. Apparently Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte sees a bit of the old Fuhrer in himself, and he’s not afraid to let the world know it:

Chief Justice Moore Suspended for Term by COJ

MONTGOMERY, AL - Today the Court of the Judiciary (COJ) issued a decision on the charges against Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore. The Judicial Inquiry Commission (JIC) requested that he be removed from the bench. Under the COJ rules, removal requires a unanimous 9-0 vote by the members of the COJ, which is made up of judges, a lawyer and laypeople. Absent a 9-0 unanimous vote, the COJ cannot remove a judge from the bench. But today, in an unbelievable violation of the law, the COJ suspended without pay Chief Justice Moore for the remainder of his term, which runs through January 2019. When his term expires, he will be ineligible to run for election as judge again because of his age. So the suspension until the end of his term is a de facto removal from the bench.

“To suspend Chief Justice Moore for the rest of his term is the same as removal. The COJ lacked the unanimous votes to remove the Chief, so the majority instead chose to ignore the law and the rules,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel.

The New Middle East

A new Syria is emerging. And with it, a new Middle East and world are presenting themselves. Our new world is not a peaceful or stable one. It is a harsh place.

The new Syria is being born in the rubble of Aleppo.

The eastern side of the city, which has been under the control of US-supported rebel groups since 2012, is being bombed into the Stone Age by Russian and Syrian aircraft. All avenues of escape have been blocked. A UN aid convoy was bombed in violation of a fantasy cease-fire. Medical facilities and personnel are being targeted by Russia and Syrian missiles and barrel bombs to make survival impossible.

The Odd Man Ouch!

Although Dean and I were only in junior high school, we’ d already acquired hoodlum habits. Convinced that doing wrong was easier than doing right — and more fun — we devised a coin flipping scam to beat our schoolmates out of their lunch money.

Operating on the five-flip, odd-man-wins-all principle, we two con boys lured suckers in and contrived to have our coins land on heads and tails, thus insuring we’d win the third guy’s money.

We repeated this four out of five flips. On the fifth flip, we made certain both of our coins landed either tails or heads.

Media’s anti-Trump storyline of the week: No newspapers are endorsing Trump!

In followup to Rob’s piece yesterday about the Detroit News’s embarrassing endorsement of the clueless Gary Johnson (and full disclosure, like Rob I too have served as a contributor to the News and sometimes still do), we now have today’s edition the Newspaper Endorsements As Big News Development storyline, which has become the media’s go-to topic of the week. USA Today breathlessly informs us that they too have made history or something:

  In the 34-year history of USA TODAY, the Editorial Board has never taken sides in the presidential race. Instead, we’ve expressed opinions about the major issues and haven’t presumed to tell our readers, who have a variety of priorities and values, which choice is best for them. Because every presidential race is different, we revisit our no-endorsement policy every four years. We’ve never seen reason to alter our approach. Until now.

Judges must understand: climate rules are irrational

On Tuesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit heard arguments in the litigation over President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan (CPP). If implemented, CPP regulations will require states to develop and bring into force plans to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from existing power plants.

Arguments against the CPP focussed primarily on its questionable legality. However, the ten judges considering the case should also keep in mind that the rules are pointless. No matter what one believes about the causes of climate change, the CPP will have no measurable impact on climate.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy has repeatedly admitted this before Congressional hearings. McCarthy maintains that the CPP is still worthwhile because, to quote from her September 18, 2013 testimony before the House Subcommittee on Energy and Power, it “is part of an overall strategy that is positioning the U.S. for leadership in an international discussion, because climate change requires a global effort.”

Prosciutto Nuovo—no “Speck,” all “Veggie”

True prosciutto is one of many Italian delicacies, especially that from Parma region, a kind of air-dried bacon that melts on your tongue. As common for bacon, it has small parts of fat. In the context here, “Speck” is the German term for the fat in cured bacon that makes the delicacy even smoother. You can buy the original prosciutto at high-end deli shops in the U.S., including the west coast (nothing but the finest for them, ever). IMHO, even steadfast vegetarians would savor it.

Now, horror of horrors, a “veggie version” prosciutto may be coming to your local deli soon. This novel delicacy is not to excite your taste buds with new impressions, oh no, not at all. Its sole raison d’etre is to save the world from the climate Armageddon (supposedly) approaching at a meteoric speed and its (claimed) cause: rising CO2 levels in the atmosphere resulting from mankind’s meat consumption, etc.

FBI notes prove Hillary crony Mills lied about server, and investigators knew it

Kim Strassel’s always-excellent Potomac Watch column is especially good in today’s Wall Street Journal, as it breaks down and exposes clearly how the FBI caught Hillary crony Cheryl Mills in a gigantic lie - and then let her completely off the hook for it.

Mills told FBI investigators that she never even heard of Hillary’s schlock, homebrew e-mail server until after both she and Hillary had left the State Department, and that in fact during the time she worked at State she wasn’t even sure she knew what a server was.

If that sounds like a whopper, well, you know darn well that it is. And so did the FBI, as Jason Chaffetz demonstrated undeniably during his questioning yesterday of FBI Director James Comey. As Strassel explains:

Was the Fix in on FBI Investigation of Hillary Clinton’s Emails?

The more that details about the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email practices come to light, the more their efforts appear to have been a sham designed to exonerate her of wrongdoing from the very beginning. As we wrote, the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) failure to indict Hillary, based on the recommendation of FBI Director James Comey, has moved the United States closer to banana republic status.

The Clinton family’s ongoing corruption and Hillary Clinton’s pay-to-play as secretary of state have also created a precedent which could encourage other politicians to enrich themselves at the expense of the integrity of their office. The FBI’s light touch also has created a double standard on national security, where high-profile figures such as Mrs. Clinton walk free while others lose their security clearance or are fined or jailed.
