Oust California Teacher and Councilman Who Called Military ‘Dumbsh*ts’

Oust California Teacher and Councilman Who Called Military 'Dumbsh*ts'
I’m just a Navy mom of a United States Naval Academy graduate who is currently a Navy special ops officer, and has had two long Middle East deployments. I wasn’t going to weigh in on the liberal California councilman and public school teacher who told his students “military are ‘dumbsh*ts” and “lowest of our low.” That is, until I read that the school district officials of Gregory Salcido, El Rancho High School history teacher and a current member of the Pico Rivera City Council, were covering for him, even after he said when speaking about our military, “They’re the frickin’ lowest of our low,” in one of three videos that surfaced last week.

My son’s USNA education was a scholarship, valued in 2007 at $300,000. Around 1,000 freshly minted plebe midshipmen receive this scholarship every year through The United States Naval Academy. The USNA’s ranking by U.S. News and World Report is #1 for the Top Public School, and # 2 by Forbes. Additionally, the United States Naval Academy’s ranking in the 2018 edition of Best Colleges is National Liberal Arts Colleges 21.

The Democrats Are The Conservative’s Strongest Sales Pitch!

The Democrats Are The Conservative's Strongest Sales Pitch!

Last night’s State of the Union address from our nation’s greatest president since Ronald Reagan - President, Donald Trump - was, after our weathering two terms of circling in the Obama toilet, a breath of fresh air.

And the same anti-American, Communist Party that has thoroughly infiltrated and occupied the left side of our Congress continued to expose themselves by simply keeping their seats during all the attempts our president made at inviting their cooperation in serving and healing our country. They revealed their complete lack of love or even minimal respect for our nation. THE DEMOCRATS ARE PROUD OF THEIR DECIDED LACK OF ENTHUSIASM FOR ANYTHING THAT HELPS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

America Off to the Races

America Off to the Races
Will Mueller and his Clintonista hit squad manage to entrap President Trump in perjury before he can prod the DOJ to do a serious investigation of the Clinton mob? In other words will the Silent Coup succeed in overthrowing the President before the President can get his Deep State infected DOJ to carry out a serious investigation of the Obama-Clinton-FBI CABAL that has been conspiring since before last year’s election to fix the outcome and since to nullify the results? That is the question.

On the Silent Coup front:

The Mueller persecution continues to pursue President Trump to testify under oath, a pre-requisite to springing his perjury trap. The President’s supporters hope and pray that he isn’t led to do so. If his lawyers suggest it they should be sued for malpractice. Instead he should do as Clinton did. Ask for the questions in writing and respond in writing. That way it isn’t under oath and everything can be vetted seven ways to sundown before it is transmitted to the inquisition.

Trump: This is our new American moment

Trump: This is our new American moment
It wasn’t the speech I would have preferred, but I didn’t really think we were going to get that. Given that President Trump choose the fairly traditional route for a State of the Union address, he came off about as well as presidents ever do. Even some of the schmaltzier elements were presented pretty well.

I’ve never been the biggest fan of highlighting particular people and their acts of bravery or whatever, then asking them to stand in the crowd. I don’t really see what it has to do with the state of the union. But like every other president, Trump went through this exercise, and the people he highlighted - from the exceptional border patrol agent to the young boy who went around putting flags on veterans’ graves - were impossible not to appreciate.

VIDEO: Idiot doesn't like Michigan State board's choice for interim president, so he jumps on their table
You have the right to protest. You don’t have the right to invade people’s work spaces, and when someone is having a meeting, the fact that you disagree with their action doesn’t give you the right to jump up on their meeting table, sit there and refuse to leave.

That does not make you a hero of free speech. It just makes you an obnoxious, petulant jerk.

The Search for a Russian Mole

The Search for a Russian Mole
Will the investigation of anti-Trump bias in the FBI turn into something even more ominous? Consider the well-established fact that President Barack Hussein Obama, using a pseudonym, knowingly exchanged emails with Hillary on her private unsecure server. He then lied about it. That’s why Hillary was spared. The FBI spared her to protect him.

The leadership of the FBI knew Obama was a Marxist operative and agent of influence for the world communist and Islamic movements. They knew he had ties to Louis Farrakhan and former Weather Underground terrorists. They also had a 600-page FBI file on Obama’s mentor, Communist Party operative Frank Marshall Davis. It was released to America’s Survival, Inc. in the summer of 2008 and we then made it public. A mentor to Obama for about eight years, he taught Obama to hate white people and admire Red Russia.

Nunes Statement on FBI, DOJ Objections to Release of HPSCI Memo

Nunes Statement on FBI, DOJ Objections to Release of HPSCI Memo
House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes issued the following statement today:

“Having stonewalled Congress’ demands for information for nearly a year, it’s no surprise to see the FBI and DOJ issue spurious objections to allowing the American people to see information related to surveillance abuses at these agencies. The FBI is intimately familiar with ‘material omissions’ with respect to their presentations to both Congress and the courts, and they are welcome to make public, to the greatest extent possible, all the information they have on these abuses. Regardless, it’s clear that top officials used unverified information in a court document to fuel a counter-intelligence investigation during an American political campaign. Once the truth gets out, we can begin taking steps to ensure our intelligence agencies and courts are never misused like this again.”

Hillary: Hey, I didn’t fire that sexual harasser because I believe in second chances

Hillary: Hey, I didn't fire that sexual harasser because I believe in second chances
I actually don’t think this makes the top 20 of Hillary’s most egregious actions, if only because that’s an exceedingly difficult list to crack. During her 2008 campaign, she had a “faith advisor” named Burns Strider who I guess would send her Bible passages. (We could go in a whole direction here for sure, but let’s stay on point.) It turned out that Strider also liked to lavish unwanted attention on the ladies, and was quite obnoxious about it, to the point where one of them complained to the campaign and Hillary had to make a decision of what to do about Strider.

She did not fire him. She demoted him, and he later left to take a job with David Brock’s Clinton-bootlicking organization called Correct the Record, where Strider repeated the same behavior. Yesterday Hillary took to Facebook to defend her decision in detail. This is just an excerpt:

A tip of the garden hat to a few of those who have improved our gardens, health and lives in general: “Whoever could make two ears of corn grow where only one grew before would deserve better of mankind, and do more essential service to his country, than the whole race of politicians put together.” Jonathan Swift 1667-1745

BREAKING: Trey Gowdy announces he will not seek re-election, is leaving politics
Whoa.  So far, this is probably the biggest retirement announcement we’ve seen.  Trey Gowdy will not seek re-election to the House of Representatives and is leaving politics for an unspecified job somewhere in the Justice System.

This is not one I saw coming.

Right away, this has people speculating that Gowdy is

A: Taking Jeff Sessions’ job at the DOJ.
or
B: caught up in something shady.

At this point, we’re not hearing anything that suggests either of these theories are accurate.  We’ll update when we know more.

National Smack A Lib Day

National Smack A Lib Day
A Vietnam vet friend of mine, who has since passed away, once opined that what America really needs is a good old fashioned “National Smack A Lib Day.” Just to drain off some of that excess adrenaline, you know?

The Left gets to spit on, scream at, and stomp on conservatives all day, every day, all year long. They call us bigoted racists, while the “news” outlets insult We the People 24/7 by insulting President Trump—our choice for president. They wish to destroy our country via open borders, and they bar us from speaking on our college campuses.

Our country is dealing with the long time failure of our government to do its job

Our country is dealing with the long time failure of our government to do its job. We are faced with the results of an immigration policy that has been ignored for years. We have within our borders people who do not belong here, yet we recognize that many have been here for years, perhaps their entire lives, and only know this country.

Democrats have made those immigrants the focus of their campaign. Some believe it is a ploy to secure voters. Whatever the reason, their mission is causing a stalemate with Republicans who are eager to enforce our laws. It is also causing uncertainty and fear in the immigrant community.

The President has put forth a compromise. There is something for both sides to celebrate and something that amounts to a bitter pill for both sides.

If we, on either side, will not support this measure, then we are willing to accept the rancor, gridlock, and extrordinary amount of time, money and energy being spent on the issue. I believe it is time to “man up”, accept those who are here, build a wall and enforce our laws and move on. And I mean both sides. If you agree that this is the way and this is the time, send an email, letter or phone call to your Representatives and Senators to support President Trump’s compromise.

MSNBC outraged that Trump would mention Otto Warmbier's death - 'He wants a war with North Korea!'
During last night’s State of the Union address, President Trump spent considerable time telling the story of Otto Warmbier. He’s the American student who was arrested in North Korea, was imprisoned and tortured, then died from his injuries upon his return to the United States.  His parents were in the audience last night.

Here’s that clip:

Trump says he's 100 percent in favor of #ReleaseTheMemo; Kelly says it's coming soon
I know how this could turn out. Once the Nunes memo is public, it’s guaranteed that the memo itself will face at least as much public scrutiny as those Nunes discusses in it. The media won’t turn the heat on the DOJ and FBI officials Nunes accuses of abusing their power. They’ll turn the heat on Nunes for daring to offer such a partisan slant on the documents he was allowed to view but not keep copies of.

The Democrats will release their own memo refuting all of Nunes’s conclusions, and that will give the media license to portray the whole story as a he-said-she-said rather than as the exposure of something very wrong going on in federal law enforcement.

Misprinted tickets invite guests to Trump’s ‘State of the Uniom’ address

Re: Misprinted tickets invite guests to Trump’s ‘State of the Uniom’ address

As the President said “It is a damn poor mind indeed which can’t think of at least two ways to spell any word.” (President Andrew Jackson).

Spelling is a dying art - mostly due to spellcheckers and a lack of ability by its users to spot obvious errors. The example of the moment, uniom rather than union, is more likely poor typing than spelling.

Does it really matter if we think Crocodile Dundee came from Austria rather than Australia? Not really, although since there are no crocodiles there Squirrel Dundee may have lacked some drama. However, if it was a matter of bombing runs, “Iraq or Iran?” may have caused some political tensions to rise.

Typing errors may excuse many concerns although the differences between the recovery is slow/low are significant. Perhaps the President or Resident in the White House needs to double check everything he sends out - this could be extended to his tweets as well.

As we peel away the layers of how this mistake occurred it may be like the onion - a source of many tears.

Why Is The Shale Industry Still Not Profitable?

Why Is The Shale Industry Still Not Profitable?
Echoing the criticism of too much hype surrounding U.S. shale from the Saudi oil minister last week, a new report finds that shale drilling is still largely not profitable. Not only that, but costs are on the rise and drillers are pursuing “irrational production.”

Riyadh-based Al Rajhi Capital dug into the financials of a long list of U.S. shale companies, and found that “despite rising prices most firms under our study are still in losses with no signs of improvement.” The average return on asset for U.S. shale companies “is still a measly 0.8 percent,” the financial services company wrote in its report.

A New, Unanticipated Oil World

A New, Unanticipated Oil World
A letter in a November 1999 edition of the Oil & Gas Journal, “Running Out of Oil,” written by an industry consultant, stated 11 facts and predictions. Far from unusual, his facts were generally correct and his prognostications mainstream.

U.S. oil production was in decline in the 1990s. Oil imports were rising. This led George W. Bush to declare in his 2006 State of the Union Address: “America is addicted to oil.”

Until around 2010, in fact, “Peak Oil” was in vogue both inside and outside the industry. Pro-oil voices urged greater public-land access and less regulation to increase otherwise declining production; anti-oil voices favored government subsidies and mandates to fashion a post-petroleum future.
