They’re NOT Sore Losers?

(from Free North Carolina, in part)

Trump isn’t up against “sore losers.” He’s facing an army of saboteurs bent on destroying the elected government.

Via Billy

As I predicted in my best-selling book about President Trump’s plan to save America, the Democrats and their media accomplices have declared all-out war on the Trump White House. Under the guise of “resistance” – as though the Trump was the head of an occupying army rather than an elected president – they have set out to destroy his administration. They are not “sore losers,” as many had surmised when their hysterical attacks on Trump as an American Hitler began, they are an army of saboteurs bent on destroying the government the voters preferred. Their general, Barack Obama, is an unrepentant radical who abused the office of the presidency when he was in power, and as ex-president is now leading a war to overthrow his successor.

Is this hyperbole, or fact?
What do you guys think?
AND – what do we, as citizens of a Constitutional Republic, DO about it?
(I’m convinced their vanguard is roughly 3% of the Democratic Party.  Old hippies who believed in the Weathermen, race-baiters, other radicals searching for a cause (rebels w/o a clue!), unemployed – because employed folks have to work!)
PS – I am not a Trump supporter.  I think the last election was Hobson’s Choice – an unrepentant criminal Marxist versus a Huey Long copycat with lots of money, playing to the Silent Majority.  Trump has some good ideas, but seems less educated regarding how the Constitution works!

Thanks For Your Many Good Thoughts!

…and prayers!

They seem to have worked.

Judy got through the surgery fine – I’ve seen photos!  (see below)

The only problem was with scheduling (bureaucratizilla!).  They required us to be there @ 0800.  When she signed in, they said her surgery was scheduled for 1400!!!

At length, they said it MIGHT be earlier.

The took her back for prep @ 1130, said they would bring me back to sit with her in about a half an hour.  At 1245, I asked, and they escorted me back(!?)

She went into surgery a bit after 1300, and the doc came out to educate me just before 1500.  A large bone spur was removed, and the tear in her rotator cuff completely closed.  And some rough edges polished(!)

AGAIN, thank you everyone for your support and kindness!

PS:  Photos for your perusal! (IF I got them correct)

We Should Learn From WHO? France?!

France’s Death Spiral

Via Frank

  • In 1990, the “Gayssot law” was passed, stipulating that “any discrimination based on ethnicity, nation, race or religion is prohibited”. Since then, it has been used to criminalize any criticism of Arab and African delinquency, any question on immigration from the Muslim world, any negative analysis of Islam. Many writers have been fined and most “politically incorrect” books on those topics have disappeared from bookshops.
  • The French government asked the media to obey the “Gayssot law.” It also asked that history textbooks be rewritten to include chapters on the crimes committed by the West against Muslims, and on the “essential contribution” of Islam to humanity. All history textbooks are “Islamically correct.”
  • In hospitals, Muslims are increasingly asking to be treated only by Muslim doctors, and refusing to let their wives be treated by male doctors.

February 2, 2017: A “no-go zone” in the eastern suburbs of Paris. Police on patrol hear screams. They decide to check. While there, a young man insults them. They decide to arrest him. He hits them. A fight starts. He accuses a policeman of having raped him with a police baton. A police investigation quickly establishes that the young man was not raped. But it is too late; a toxic process has begun.

Political correctness is killing Europe, literally!
AND, it will kill the United States.

BEE Prepared!

beeI’ve oft written here (or copied stolen other’s writings) regarding the substitute of ‘science’-with-an-agenda attached, versus pure science.

And, it seems to have happened, yet again!

First, DDT was BAD.  It must be banned.

Then, the World was getting colder.  The NEW Ice Age was upon us.

Followed by The Ozone Layer was being eaten away by hydrocarbons.

More recently, the World is getting WARMER.  No WAIT!  Weather is changing!

Now, we are losing BEE populations at an alarming rate!  It’s the evil pesticides and GMOs, again!  Ban stuff!

Of course, most of us are not scientists, and trust those who are to evaluate evidence without concern for the outcome, to give us a possible solution.

And governments world-wide jump on the band wagon to take control of the ‘problem’, even if it doesn’t exist!

Turns out DDT does remain present, but doesn’t seem to be harmful in the long run.  Too bad, it’s banned!

The New Ice Age didn’t happen.

The hole in the ozone closed.  Another crisis avoided apparently in a natural cycle.  Of course, many chemicals were banned, regardless.

Climate Change?  Yep, it happens.  But unless scientists skew their results to fit a socialist agenda, humanity appears to not be responsible.

Regarding THE BEES:

The New Bee Crisis Is Just Like The Old One: Phony (Forbes)

I do find it interesting that every environmental ‘crisis’ comes now with an attached (socialist/world-wide) solution.

It’s for the children, ya know!

France on the Verge of Total Collapse

Via Mike

On August 3, French riot police dragged a priest and his congregation from the church of St Rita in Paris, prior to its scheduled demolition. Front National leader Marine Le Pen said in fury: “And what if they built parking lots in the place of Salafist mosques, and not of our churches?”

France is in turmoil. “Migrants” arriving from Africa and the Middle East sow disorder and insecurity in many cities. The huge slum commonly known as the “jungle of Calais” has just been dismantled, but other slums are being created each day. In eastern Paris, streets have been covered with corrugated sheets, oilcloth and disjointed boards. Violence is commonplace. France’s 572 “no-go zones,” officially defined as “sensitive urban areas”, continue to grow, and police officers who approach them often suffer the consequences. Recently, a police car drove into an ambush and was torched while the police were prevented from getting out. If attacked, police officers are told by their superiors to flee rather than retaliate. Many police officers, angry at having to behave like cowards, have organized demonstrations. No terrorist attacks have taken place since the slaughter of a priest in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray on July 26, 2016, but intelligence services see that jihadists have returned from the Middle East and are ready to act, and that riots may break out anywhere, any time, on any pretext.

I’ve no problem with more immigrants moving to the United States.  Legal, vetted, immigrants.  Muslims, even!  Who wish freedom and American assimilation.
But, if you cannot be vetted, or are terrorists, smugglers, murderers or rapists, stay away!
Or face the consequences of your actions.

Is Federalism EVIL?

I suppose that all depends on how it’s imposed…

Why Yankees Won’t (And Can’t) Leave the South Alone

 yankee

This essay was first published in Southern Partisan in the Winter, 1985.

Southerners rarely while away their leisure hours by contemplating Yankees, for there is no point in thinking of unpleasant things if one is not obliged to do so. Yet the practice does have value; to some extent, at least, we are defined by those attributes which set us apart from others, and sometimes we can be made aware of such attributes only by observing people who do not share them. Another virtue of thinking about Yankees, in the long run perhaps a more important one, is that it serves to remind us that they have repeatedly tried to make us over in their own image. Indeed, though it may seem that they have been off our backs since the demise of the civil rights movement, their latest campaign to reform us is actually well under way.

What is there about us that has made us so offensive to them? Or, conversely, what is there about them that has compelled them to meddle in our affairs? The late great Richard M. Weaver, in The Southern Tradition at Bay, addressed himself to analyzing the qualities that distinguish the South from North, and for the nineteenth century he was perfectly on target. “The North had Tom Paine and his postulates assuming the virtuous inclinations of man,” Weaver wrote; “the South had Burke and his doctrine of human fallibility and of the organic nature of society.” The North embraced rationalism and egalitarianism; the South had a “deep suspicion of all theory, perhaps of intellect,” and clung to a hierarchical and deferential social order. The North bowed down before science and material progress; the South “persisted in regarding science as a false messiah,” and remained into “our own time” (the 1940s) “the last non-materialist civilization in the Western World.”

Growing up in public schools in the Southwest, we were taught it was The Civil War (in lieu of The War Between the States, or that recent unpleasantness).  And that Lincoln was a hero by preserving the Union.
Simplistic, I know.
Now the Republic seems more divided than ever, and there have been rumblings (on the Internet) of secessionist movements in Idaho, Texas, Montana, California and Alaska.
Even if President-elect Trump had quoted Gerald Ford and said ‘our long national nightmare is over’, that wouldn’t necessarily make it so.
And it does appear as though Southerners DO think differently than Yankees. (A Southerner now not being necessarily geographically defined.)
And the Federal government by it’s very nature seems to want more power and control.
Between land take-overs, false imprisonments, warrantless searches, courts of Star Chamber, and not taking a firm hand to persons who break the law, and illegal alien and drug smuggling, there is potential for this not to end well.
Just look at the diverse mindsets of progressives, conservatives and libertarians on Facebook!
We are as divergent as the South and the North 151 years ag0 – coupled with Internet technology and communication.  And statist millionaires fueling the fire with billions!
I fear for the Republic.

Social Media Is NOT Your Friend!

fedbook-spying-social-mediaPrivacy mavens have been going on for some time regarding the complete lack of privacy on the Internet.  Coupled with private industry and public intelligence, license plate readers and facial recognition software, the NSA listening to our cellular telephone calls and reading our email, and cameras everywhere, from about 2002, lets face it…

We’re hosed. 

Now, another factor has entered the arena.

(from Peter)

“Militarizing” social media?

According to Motherboard, it’s a real threat.

A global conference of senior military and intelligence officials taking place in London this week reveals how governments increasingly view social media as “a new front in warfare” and a tool for the Armed Forces.

The overriding theme of the event is the need to exploit social media as a source of intelligence on civilian populations and enemies; as well as a propaganda medium to influence public opinion.

. . .

The event, the Sixth Annual Conference on Social Media Within the Defence and Military Sector, is sponsored by the Thales Group, the tenth largest defense company in the world, which is partially owned by the French government.

Participants in the conference—chaired by Steven Mehringer, Head of Communication Services at NATO—will include military and intelligence leaders from around the world, especially “social media experts from across the armed forces and defense industry.”

. . .

“Social Media is increasingly important to the portrayal of armed forces, at home and abroad on operations; raising awareness of institutional issues; and gaining support through successful recruitment campaigns,” said conference Chairman, NATO’s Steven Mehringer, in an invitation brochure for the event.

The military’s goal of using social media to influence the beliefs of populations to win wars is alluded to in the description of other panels. A proposed panel titled ‘NATO’s Digital Outreach: Creating a Global Conversation’, describes NATO’s aim of “cultivating a global audience through social media to support The Alliance.”

Another panel discussion makes direct reference to the role of social media in covert US military ‘psychological warfare’ operations—i.e. propaganda—as well as the use of social media to support mass surveillance.

There’s more at the link.

At first I assumed that the conference was about nothing more or less than the usual propaganda exercises employed by all sides in any conflict.  However, reading between the lines, it appears that they’re talking about more active – and more covert – interventions, such as ‘sock-puppeting‘ comments on or reactions to articles, blog posts, etc. that they don’t like.  In other words, they wouldn’t act openly, or say that this is the view of a particular party;  so one wouldn’t be able to exercise informed judgment on what they have to say.

I know some of the more totalitarian governments have been doing this for decades.  (The so-calledGreat Firewall of Chinais a good example, and it’s now morphing into acitizen scorefor every person, upon which will depend their ability to get good jobs, get loans, or even eat well.)  If Western nations are now starting to venture into the same territory, we’ll have to be on our guard.

To coin a phrase: Big Brother is not your friend.

GEE…

About these “protests”…

I wonder if it’s just Soros or SEIU (famous for earlier OWS busings) or LaRaza?  Or a coordinated effort by community organizers (outside agitators) in all these groups?

I was told by a liberal friend that it didn’t happen against Obama, because folks think Trump is more dangerous (!?)  Different strokes, I guess.  I thought Obama was/is plenty dangerous…

As for me, there have been Presidents and policies with whom/which I disagreed over the past 40 years.  But, I couldn’t leave school – I’d have been suspended.  And work?  Fired.

Besides, I had and needed to keep my job!  (I’m guess this IS a job for many of these folks!)

Figures. Anti-Trump Protesters Were Bussed in to Austin #FakeProtests

Via Billy

bus-protests-3

Paid fake protesters were bused in to the anti-Trump protests in Austin, Texas.

They must have spent a lot of Soros money on this operation.

There was a whole string of buses.

Everything they do is fake or paid for.

and…
mexican-protesters
‘Students’, aka Lenin’s useful idiots.
Funny how they sport MEXICAN flags and professionally-made signs…
The Internet says the epicenter of the protest activity is OREGON! (where Austin, Berkeley, Tucson, SF et al should relocate!)
Who knew?
At least this gives folks something to do.
(BTW – I’m all for protest – it’s a fine American tradition.  Criminal damage, arson, rioting, and assault are crimes, not protest.)
(AND WHILE WE’RE ON THE SUBJECT)
There’s  ‘movement’ to force the Electoral College to change their vote to coincide with the popular vote! (I wonder if such a movement would exist if the result had been reversed?), AND, a movement to amend the Constitution to make the Presidential Election by popular vote!!
Didn’t any of these folks take Eighth Grade Civics?
For those who missed it, The United States is a REPUBLIC, NOT a democracy (aka majority/mob rule).  Please see the map below:
electoral-population-map
Do you REALLY want only the regions in blue deciding who becomes President?  THIS is why the Electoral College was created.  The Founding Fathers were smart cookies – thinking of fly-over States before the airplane was even invented!
Class dismissed.

 

Facebook Has Become The Weekly World News!

(Originally, I was going to say The National Enquirer, but that periodical appears to have achieved more gravitas of late than The New York Times and Time magazine, combined!)  🙂

Let’s see.  In the past week…

  • Hillary WILL DEFINITELY be indicted
  • Hillary WILL DEFINITELY NOT be indicted
  • Global Warming is real (as determined by bribed/blackmailed scientists)
  • Oklahoma Fracking is causing the increased earthquake activity there (as determined by the same ‘team’ of scientists)
  • Assange states Wikileaks will release astounding information damning to Hillary in the next couple of days. – from Saturday last  (We’re still waiting, Julian!)
  • GMO foods are killing us.
  • Vaccinating is bad
  • Vaccinating is good.
  • More BEE species are facing extinction (due to Monsanto pesticide and GMO development)
  • Big corporations (like Monsanto) are bad.  Just because they are big, and make money.
  • Hillary will win (because the fix is in, ballot box stuffing, voter fraud, Soros, Illuminati, etc.)
  • Hillary will win (based on some Quija board predictions in the past – see Groundhog Day)
  • Trump will win (see above Hillary win stuff for reasons)

One thing I have noticed.  Many of the same scientists are aligned with the same forces who believe in global warming, are anti-GMO and ANTI-vaxxer types, and have the ‘humans are bad for the Earth’ (and obtaining oil is bad, and think we need a global government to solve everything) way of thinking.

IF YOU HAVE NOT VOTED, PLEASE DO SO.  IF NOT, YOU WILL HAVE NO RIGHT TO COMPLAIN.

Thank GOD today is Election Day, and it will all be over soon!

One way or another…

God save The United States of America, from herself!

 

 

Just In Time For Your Pre-Election Festivities…

The Silicon Graybeard (not a wild-eyed conspiracy guy!) brings us (in part)

Fiat Justitia, et Pereat Mundus

Translates as “Let justice be done, though the world perish”.  Apparently it’s not really a phrase from the Roman Empire but from a book in 1563.   Wikipedia says:

This sentence was the motto of Ferdinand I, Holy Roman Emperor, probably originating from Johannes Jacobus Manlius’s book Loci Communes (1563). It characterizes an attitude, which wants to provide justice at any price. Its first documented use in English literature was about half a century later.

Hat Tip to The Arts Mechanical for this information, in a piece called Nightmare Fuel, and it really is reading that’s not for the squeamish.  He, in turn, links to a number of sources that are reporting on the truly disgusting things going on in Clinton Foundation’s universe.  First a link to True Pundit:

BREAKING BOMBSHELL: NYPD Blows Whistle on New Hillary Emails: Money Laundering, Sex Crimes with Children, Child Exploitation, Pay to Play, Perjury

It’s. Not. Just. Bill.  It’s all of them.  From Reddit’s The_Donald forum :

BREAKING: I believe I have connected a convicted child abductor who was caught stealing children in Haiti with the Clintons
(…)
But wait!  There’s more! (Sickeningly)
I truly believe the Clintons and their entourage to be evil.  Morally bankrupt.
Even if none of the above allegations (many courtesy of Wikileaks) are based in fact.
Humans want to believe the worst about persons whom they already despise.  It makes it easier to put them in the why would I want to elect THEM column.
You should really go and read the whole blog post before casting your vote Tuesday.
Not forgetting about Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation, Hillary’s gun control plans, the illegal sale of plutonium to Russia, arming ISIS, the countless mysterious deaths and intimidations, Bill’s serial rapes…
(I could go on – but I have to go take some Pepto now.)
This does NOT mean I am actively supporting the Republican candidate!  He may be a pig and has used inappropriate language, and at best is a populist (see Huey Long)
Libertarians?  Two governors with scant international experience?  One of who is a rebranded, gun-controlling Democrat?!  And the Presidential candidate supports global-warming taxes?!
(I’m not even mentioning the Greens or the Commies…  I know, I’m being redundant)
So VOTE.  Vote not with your heart, but with your brain.
THE REPUBLIC’S SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON IT.

"Round up the usual suspects."

In Loving Memory…
