Do Not Be Deceived



February 6, 2017

Do Not Be Deceived

Two stories caught my attention this morning.

Both are the result of deception, intentional? or unintentional?

First is this from the Brits;

Exposed: How world leaders were duped into investing billions over manipulated global warming data 

The Mail on Sunday today reveals astonishing evidence that the organisation that is the world’s leading source of climate data rushed to publish a landmark paper that exaggerated global warming and was timed to influence the historic Paris Agreement on climate change.
A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015.
The report claimed that the ‘pause’ or ‘slowdown’ in global warming in the period since 1998 – revealed by UN scientists in 2013 – never existed, and that world temperatures had been rising faster than scientists expected. Launched by NOAA with a public relations fanfare, it was splashed across the world’s media, and cited repeatedly by politicians and policy makers.
But the whistleblower, Dr John Bates, a top NOAA scientist with an impeccable reputation, has shown The Mail on Sunday irrefutable evidence that the paper was based on misleading, ‘unverified’ data.

You do understand this right?

All the hand wringing, protests, legislation and social pressure caused by manipulated data.

Deception

Lies

Manipulation

Nice way to start the week eh?

Next lets look at the one place where we NEED honesty, the Pentagon.

The U.S. military's stats on deadly airstrikes are wrong. Thousands have gone unreported

The American military has failed to publicly disclose potentially thousands of lethal airstrikes conducted over several years in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan, a Military Times investigation has revealed. The enormous data gap raises serious doubts about transparency in reported progress against the Islamic State, al-Qaida and the Taliban, and calls into question the accuracy of other Defense Department disclosures documenting everything from costs to casualty counts.

In 2016 alone, U.S. combat aircraft conducted at least 456 airstrikes in Afghanistan that were not recorded as part of an open-source database maintained by the U.S. Air Force, information relied on by Congress, American allies, military analysts, academic researchers, the media and independent watchdog groups to assess each war's expense, manpower requirements and human toll. Those airstrikes were carried out by attack helicopters and armed drones operated by the
U.S. Army, metrics quietly excluded from otherwise comprehensive monthly summaries, published online for years, detailing American military activity in all three theaters.

Most alarming is the prospect this data has been incomplete since the war on terrorism began in October 2001. If that is the case, it would fundamentally undermine confidence in much of what the Pentagon has disclosed about its prosecution of these wars, prompt critics to call into question whether the military sought to mislead the American public, and cast doubt on the competency with which other vital data collection is being performed and publicized. Those other key metrics include American combat casualties, taxpayer expense and the military’s overall progress in degrading enemy capabilities.

Now, I am a fan of our military, I am also a Viet Nam era vet.
There is NO REASON for the Pentagon to do something like this, NONE.

You shoot at someone, it needs to be on the record. I can understand a few misses...but THOUSANDS?

Again, its deception.

Now, I'd like to share something with you.

Late in Jesus' ministry, as He was with His disciples in Jerusalem. The disciples were astonished at the size and scope of the buildings and specifically the Temple.

It was truly a magnificent sight. No different than a first time tourist in New York City in awe over the sky scrapers or in Washington DC marveling at the marble government buildings.

The disciples said to Jesus, this is recorded in Matthew 25

"24 Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said to them, “Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”

So the Lord is saying that all the building that they see will be destroyed, and dismantled. Obviously the disciples were blown away at His statement,

The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age

Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

Naturally the next question is "When?" and "What are the signs of the End Of The Age?"

The End Of The Age...when it all winds down, or ramps up depending on your point of view...and here is Jesus first and crucial statement.
And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.

Understand?
Deception, lies, manipulation, aversion, confusion...

The prophet Isaiah said 750 or so years before Jesus. Is 5:21

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And prudent in their own sight!

A Recap In Crazy Land



January 29, 2017

A Recap In Crazy Land

Last week we had two protest marches on Washington DC. The first was from the liberal womens side.


In watching the interviews of these women, who are identified by their pink cat eared (cat ears symbolizing a 'pussy') hats, the women cannot really say what they are protesting against.

Usually when you protest, you have something you protest against. In my day it was the Viet Nam war. Then we had women protest by burning their bras. It was a sexual protest against lack of birth control which morphed onto the Rowe v. Wade abortion law.

We've killed over 50 million babies since. But I digress.

The second protest this week was more of a march. It was the Right To Life March



'Life is winning': Pence fired up March for Life crowd


Vice President Mike Pence fired up the crowd at Friday's March for Life in Washington, telling the pro-life throng their movement is succeeding.

"Life is winning in America and today is a celebration in that progress," Pence said at the Washington Monument, before the march stepped off just after noon. "We’ve come to a historic moment in the cause of life and we must approach it with with compassion for every American. Life is winning in America because of you.

"Let this movement be known for love," he added to thunderous applause. "Not anger. For compassion. Not confrontation."

The 43rd annual event was the third major event in the nation’s capital this week, and drew activists from around the country. There was no immediate estimate of the crowd size.

In addition to Pence, speakers included key adviser to President Trump Kellyanne Conway, Cardinal Timothy Dolan and Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, and others.

Participants told Fox News getting to the event was a must.

“There is no more important issue for me," said Amanda Fowley, 33, who traveled with her husband from Rhode Island and has attended every year since she was 13.


And the liberal Snowflakes say:












Now you'd think that all this anger and bitterness would be divisive to our nation as a whole.

You are right.

There has been so much going on this week that its almost impossible for me to keep up with it, and to live my own life. Its a tsunami of kept campaign promises.

Wow

A Word Of Wisdom For Mexico



January 28, 2017

A Word Of Wisdom For Mexico

You cant read an article from the press about the issue with Mexico and the Wall where the United States and specifically President Trump comes off as a bully and Neanderthal.

The media portrays the people who voted for Trump and agree with him that we need to protect our southern border, as cowards who are anti-Mexico, anti-trade and anti-human.

Typical media set up.

Make something that is important to law abiding folk out to be irrational and ridiculous.

Lets look at this wall for a minute and specifically what it represents to the US citizens.



First of all the President of Mexico is in trouble in his country.

Unemployment is rampant, rising gas prices have actually caused riots and then there's the ongoing drug war. When you combine that with the Mexican political system of looking out for the wealthy and screwing over the poor you get a brew of shit. Mexico is as messed up as it gets.

Now, stir in some "Mexican Pride", and that's a recipe for trouble. Ec=xpect the media to sling that mud.

From the LA Times:


Mexican president rejects Trump's border wall -- and says he won't pay for it

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto said he rejects and condemns U.S. President Trump's plan to immediately begin construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. 

In a televised address Wednesday night, Peña Nieto said Mexico "does not believe in walls." His voice rising, Peña Nieto repeated his promise that Mexico "will not pay" for construction of a border barrier. 

Peña Nieto is facing considerable pressure from other Mexican leaders to boycott a planned meeting with Trump in Washington next week. 

On Wednesday, Trump directed the Department of Homeland Security to begin building a wall along stretches of the southern border where a barrier does not already exist. 

In what political analysts and many Mexicans viewed as a stinging insult , the order came the same day that Mexico’s foreign secretary, Luis Videgaray, arrived in Washington for talks with White House officials on trade and other issues ahead of Peña Nieto’s planned visit. 

In his address, Peña Nieto didn't say whether he planned to attend the meeting, saying he would make that decision after consulting with Videgaray and the delegation of officials currently in Washington.
Peña Nieto, who has repeatedly called for dialogue with Trump, left a door open for attending the meeting, saying he feels a "responsibility to defend and take care of the interests of Mexico and Mexicans." 

"It is my duty to address the problems and to face the challenges," he said. 

Dozens of Mexican leaders have called on Peña Nieto to cancel his trip, saying Trump's bold actions on the border wall prove he is not interested in dialogue. 

Ricardo Anaya, president of the opposition National Action Party, or PAN, said the timing of Trump's announcement just before Peña Nieto's visit to the U.S. "is an insult." 

"There are no conditions for a meeting with Trump," he said. 


From that purveyor of conservative thought (sarcasm mine), USA Today says:

4 reasons Mexico hates Trump's border wall

 

PHOENIX — President Trump on Wednesday signed executive actions ordering construction of a border wall with Mexico, and ramping up deportations, fulfilling two of his signature campaign promises.

Within hours, Mexico’s president, Enrique Peña Nieto, abruptly canceled a meeting with Trump scheduled for Tuesday after reiterating there was no way that Mexico will pay for the wall, despite Trump's vow to the contrary.

Trump’s executive orders have sparked protests in the United States and in Mexico. Here are four reasons why Mexicans hate Trump’s border wall.

1. A fence is not the same as a wall

Mexico and the United States share a border that is nearly 2,000 miles long. Until recently, a wall existed along several parts of the border, including Nogales.

The old wall was built from military-surplus metal landing mats and was easy to cut through. It also was easy to climb over. In 2011, construction crews ripped out the old, rusting landing mats and replaced them with bollard-style fencing. The new fencing is higher, and is capped by a 5-foot south-facing metal sheet, making it more difficult to climb over. It also extends 5 feet into the ground, making it harder to burrow under.

Border Patrol agents prefer the new fencing. It allows agents to see what is happening on the other side, making it harder for smugglers to hide. It also reduces the chances of agents being hit by "rock throwers," a common problem.

"You can look through and see that no one is over there, or what's going to come at you in the next few seconds," Border Patrol Agent Eric Cantu told the Nogales International in 2011.


President Trump signs an executive order to start the Mexico border wall project at the Department of Homeland Security facility in Washington on Jan. 25, 2017(Photo: Nicholas Kamm, AFP/Getty Images)

The see-through fencing also was welcomed by Mexicans. It restored the feeling that Mexico and the United States are neighbors, not enemies. That is why there was not the same outcry when the U.S. completed 720 miles of new fencing along the border in 2011, says Marco Lopez. He was mayor of Nogales, Ariz., from 2001 to 2003 and chief of staff of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which includes the Border Patrol, from January 2009 to September 2011 when the fencing was being installed.

"It was not as offensive," he said.

Trump's border-wall plan sends the opposite message. After all, nothing says "stay out" better than a wall.

2. It reminds Mexicans they lost half of their country to the U.S.

Americans often forget that a large part of the United States once belonged to Mexico. But most Mexicans are keenly aware that the United States, eager to expand West, invaded Mexico and the two countries fought a war from 1846 to 1848.

When it was over, Mexico lost half its territory to the United States, including the present-day states of California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and parts of Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico. The war followed the U.S. annexation of Texas.

"I don't think Mexicans wake up every morning and think about that," said Francisco Lara-Valencia, a Mexico-born professor at Arizona State University's School of Transborder Studies.

Still, he sees evidence that Trump's plan to wall off the entire border is stirring nationalist feelings in Mexico, which led to Peña Nieto's decision Thursday to cancel his meeting next week with Trump.
"Obviously, there is a strong nationalist sentiment among many Mexicans, and (Trump's executive order to begin building a border wall) simply reminds Mexicans of the complicated relations that Mexico has had with the U.S., including the war ... and the many other tensions" since then.

3. It's a slap in the face to Mexicans working in the U.S.

Peek inside the kitchen of almost any restaurant in America, no matter what type of food is being served, and you probably will find Mexicans, along with Central Americans, doing much of the cooking and cleaning.

Every restaurant in America would "shut down" if the U.S. deported them all, chef and television personality Anthony Bourdain has said. The same would happen to the U.S. agriculture industry, Darin Dykstra, owner of a 3,000-cow dairy farm in northwest Iowa, said in a 2015 interview.
"Americans just don't want to do the work," he said. "If you are going to take the labor supply away in agriculture, dairy particularly, it's going to fall apart."

Which is why Mexican workers such as Rosalva Hernandez feel insulted when Trump talks about building a border wall. The Mexican immigrant, who came illegally but is now a legal resident, has milked cows on a dairy farm in northwest Iowa for more than 13 years. She has had teeth kicked out and a finger broken while milking cows.

"When I started working here, a year after, I got pregnant,"  Hernandez said. "I worked my nine entire months in here ... doing everything. In the middle of the night, next day, I had my baby. Twenty days later, I was back at work. Who would do that? No one."

As for Trump and anyone else who thinks Mexicans are bad, "they are not bad," she said, adding, "And I bet they cannot come in here and do one hour milking cows."

4. It implies only Mexico has benefited from trade agreements

While some Americans complain about Mexican immigrants importing their language and culture to the U.S., Mexicans often lament the same about the United States' influence in their country.
In the two decades since the signing of the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, American businesses have proliferated in Mexico. There are now at least 402 McDonald's restaurants in Mexico, according to data collected by the Guardian. Need a Starbucks fix? Mexico now has more than 500 stores, according to the company's website. More than 4 million Mexicans shop daily at Walmart, which in December announced plans to invest $1.3 billion to build more stores in Mexico, according to Fox News.

To Mexicans, however, Trump's border wall implies the United States has not benefited from NAFTA, said Lopez, who now runs a consulting firm, Intermestic Partners, that helps American businesses invest in Mexico and vice versa. In reality, 14 million jobs in the United States are tied to trade, commerce and investment with Mexico, including about 110,000 jobs in Arizona, he said.

"That is the biggest frustration" Lopez hears when he travels to Mexico. "When they see the wall," Lopez said, "it implies that there is no benefit or that there is no positive impact from their relationship with their southern neighbor."

Ok so if you read this article you'll come to the conclusion that our protection is just in our minds.

You'll see that Mexicans are just doing us a favor by doing the crap jobs that "American gringos" wont do. We've heard this for years.

It has been said that Joesph Goebbels, Adolf Hitlers Propaganda Minister said "that if you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes truth."

Sadly that has a ring of truth in it. Just look at the slogans the liberal Progressives use.

Now I'd like to offer Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto some advice.

First of all, pick your battles carefully. If you decide to do battle with President Trump on this issue you will lose. The people who voted Trump into office have emphatically stated they want border protection. We want to know who is coming into our country and we want the troublemakers kicked out. We want to have better protection against drugs being smuggled into our land. So if you cannot see that, we as a people say, fuck you.

We the people will not buy any goods from Mexico, your produce will rot as its being searched. Your people will cry out as they are being searched, the trucks and rail cars will sit idle as they are scanned for drugs or illegal immigrants.

So who loses here? Your Mexican Pride? Your people? The only winners here are the media, who will be more than happy to throw copious amounts of gas on this fire.

Now, IF you would accept that this is what we want, and say to President Trump "You know, maybe you are right. We DO need a wall, so let US help you build it." I guarantee you that you will find the American people to be behind this effort.

Who would win then? Your Pride? Your people? Your economy?

All of us.

Prepping For A Fight



January 27, 2017

Prepping For A Fight

Its been coming for months. We have watched it, cheered it screamed at it and prayerfully quietly encouraged it. We've seen the Liberal Media sound bites. That soon impact is the clash between the United States and Mexico has brought comments from across the spectrum.

The emotions range from out and out rebellion and hate to siding with President Trump and the deportation crowd.

So, lets review so far.

We've seen this before. Mexicans who live in a shit hole country, under a government that's basically out for themselves, make a bee line for the US and a better life.

If it were a few hundred or thousand, then there would be nothing to see...but we are talking about MILLIONS. If that's not bad enough, the liberal politicians have figured out if they can give government benefits to the illegals, then they will continually vote them back in office.





It's a huge problem.

In 1986 President Ronald Reagan face the same issue. Deja Vu all over again, right? So let's give 3 million illegals amnesty. The thought here was that they would seek citizen status and that would be a good thing for the nation, only it didn't happen. The Mexicans came, worked and sent money back to the motherland, and the cycle repeated itself.




We've institutionalized it, and like any other national sin, we've become used to it. Screw the Irish, the Ukrainians, the Chinese...lets focus on the Mexicans who don't give a shit about law and order.



Once here they now demand the same services as the legal citizens.







Again its the American citizen that get crapped on.




This article from August 2016. Highlight is mine.

WASHINGTON (AP) — For more than a decade, lawmakers have been pointing at their counterparts to take the blame for what just about everyone agrees is a broken immigration system.

Republicans say President Barack Obama’s immigration enforcement policies encourage more people to sneak into the country. Democrats blame Republicans for blocking legislation that would allow people already here to gain legal status and create a path for future, legal immigration.

But whatever specific policies are being fought over now, immigration experts say the problem took root at least 30 years ago, when President Ronald Reagan signed a 1986 immigration law that has become known as the “Reagan Amnesty” and allowed roughly 3 million people in the country illegally to gain legal status.

Immigration laws were overhauled again in 1990 under Republican President George H.W. Bush and again in 1996 under Democratic President Bill Clinton.

Obama has tried in his eight years in office to overhaul them once again, but nothing has passed.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has said he will fix the system, build a wall along the border with Mexico and perhaps deport many of the estimated 11 million people living in the country illegally. But this week he has indicated he may back off from that idea.

ABC News: Trump’s Executive Order Could Mean Deportation for 11 Million Illegals



ABC News reports that the illegal immigrant population in the United States could face deportation as a result of the executive order President Donald Trump signed on Wednesday, according to legal experts. A 2014 Pew Research Center study estimated the number of illegals in the U.S. to be at least 11 million.

So President Trump signed an Executive Order stating:

From ABC News

President Trump's Executive Orders on Immigration Explained


President Donald Trump signed two executive orders Wednesday that call for building a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border and aim to deny federal funds to so-called sanctuary cities that shield undocumented immigrants from deportation. 

The actions could have broad implications for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States and set up a potential showdown between the federal government and cities that resist the enforcement of some federal immigration laws. 

Here’s what the orders mean:

About That Wall

The first order, entitled “Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements,” is the first concrete step President Trump has taken to deliver on his campaign promise to build a “big, beautiful wall” along the southern border with Mexico

"Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders," Trump said in remarks at the Department of Homeland Security after signing the order Wednesday. 

The order defines it as a "physical wall or other similarly … impassable physical barrier” and calls for the addition of 5,000 border patrol agents. 

The order does not specify how the wall would be funded, though the White House continues to insist that Mexico would reimburse the United States for the cost, even though U.S. taxpayers would foot the bill upfront. 

The president of Mexico has said that Mexico would not pay. 

Republican congressional leaders said today they will move forward with plans to approve funds for a wall they estimate would cost $12 billion to $15 billion, leaving Trump to “deal with his relations with other countries on that issue and others.” 

To read more click here.

Ok so we have a two-fer. One order which covers the building of the Wall, and the other for dealing with Sanctuary Cities.

Our President is doing exactly what he said he would.

Let's get prepared for this battle. What you can do is to prepare to hear every sob story the media can find. To be honest they will be set up stories so steel your hearts friends, the assault on our heart strings is coming.

Pussy Galore


January 22, 2017



Pussy Galore





Remember the 1964 movie Goldfinger? James Bond was awesome as always. He took a Walther PPK and his secret agent 'Bondness' and took care of business...for Country and King.



One of the main characters was this beautiful Bond babe, Pussy Galore.



She was hot back in the day.



However today, 'Pussy' is not Galore or even Holy. It's synonymous with power and control. It's a buzz word for Womens Rights and the endless list of pussy clichéd demands.



Is it new? Oh no...




We read in Genesis 3: 13-16

13 And the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?”
The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
14 So the Lord God said to the serpent:
“Because you have done this,
You are cursed more than all cattle,
And more than every beast of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And you shall eat dust
All the days of your life.
15 And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”
16 To the woman He said:
“I will greatly multiply your sorrow and your conception;
In pain you shall bring forth children;
Your desire shall be for your husband,
And he shall rule over you.”


Ok so to recap, Adam and Eve sinned against God, and brought sin against all mankind. God gave a curse to Eve. Womankind has always struggled with the role of woman/man thing. The woman listened to Satan and was deceived and some are still deceived to this day.



Now, don't get me wrong, I love women. Most men I know have no intent to dominate or control/dictate to their wife/girlfriends. Its not something that comes naturally to a God fearing man.


The feminist movement isn't that way. They fall under the false assumption that women are equal to men in every aspect. That's just not true. Women are better than men in many regards, and not so equal in others. Its the Yin and Yang of life.


So the liberal wrestles with this constantly and protests against any infringement of their misguided belief. There is no negotiating with the ultra liberal belief system...it's their religion, their god.



So this brings us to this past weekend in Washington DC.


We have the ususal agitators, and instigators.

















Yeppers, pussies with their hats in abundance.



Personally I prefer, like James Bond, my pussy shaken and not stirred...ok, that was bad.



and because I like guns.






If you like this blog, then pass it on.

Lucy...You have Some 'Splaining To Do



Where do I begin today?



Snowflake women and their pussy hats?

Trumps first stop....the CIA?

The face that turned the stomachs of millions....no more!

or, I know, how about Mexico sending illegal Cubans back to Cuba,....whaaa? Ok, so I'll talk about this 'small story'  and deal with the others later.

Mexico deports 91 Cubans after U.S. ends 'wet foot, dry foot'



Mexico's government has deported 91 Cubans about a week after the United States ended a so-called "wet foot, dry foot" policy that granted residency to almost every Cuban who reached U.S. soil, Mexican officials said on Friday.

The repeal of the longstanding policy last Thursday by former U.S. President Barack Obama left hundreds of Cubans who were seeking a new life stranded in Mexico and Central America countries.
The 71 men and 20 women were flown to the Caribbean island by Mexican federal police jet from the southern city of Tapachula, Mexico's National Migration Institute said.

The Cubans were in Mexico "irregularly," the institute said in a statement, though they had applied for a permit to remain temporarily in the country.

For more, read here


Wet Foot Dry Foot? What does that mean?

From Wikipedia... Wet feet, dry feet policy



Cuba is 90 miles (145 kilometers) south of Florida

The wet feet, dry feet policy or wet foot, dry foot policy is the name given to a consequence of the 1995 revision of the application of the Cuban Adjustment Act of 1966 that essentially says that anyone who fled Cuba and entered the United States would be allowed to pursue residency a year later.

 Prior to 1995, the US government allowed all Cubans who reached US territorial waters to remain in the US. After talks with the Cuban government, the Clinton administration came to an agreement with Cuba that it would stop admitting people intercepted in U.S. waters. Since then, in what has become known as the "Wet foot, Dry foot" policy, a Cuban caught on the waters between the two nations (with "wet feet") would summarily be sent home or to a third country. 

One who makes it to shore ("dry feet") gets a chance to remain in the United States, and later would qualify for expedited "legal permanent resident" status in accordance with the 1966 Act and eventually U.S. citizenship. In January 2017, the Obama administration announced the immediate end of the policy.[1]


Ok so lets dig in a bit because this doesn't make much sense. Ok so if you are from Cuba and you make it to the US, after a bit you're home free. Great for Major League Baseball....but?


Then I found this;

Cuban-Americans Voted for Trump at Higher Rate than 'White' Americans





While “White” American voters supported Trump at a rate of 56%, Cuban American voters went for the Republican candidate at a rate of 58%--or perhaps even higher.    

Gosh? What could possibly account for such deplorable behavior?

Well, if the quip “you had to be there” applies anywhere, it’s in explaining the voting habits of Americans of Cuban heritage. By “there” I mean in a communist country—but not as a tourist!  Not like the tens of thousands of (mostly pinko) Americans who’ve been visiting Cuba and filling the coffers of Cuba’s terror-sponsoring Stalinist rulers the past few years, thanks to Obama.

No, instead I mean as a subject of a communist nation’s rulers. Voting Republican then becomes a reflex, an instinct—and one that drives liberals absolutely apoplectic.

Let’s take a perfectly representative liberal Democrat: Michael Moore. And if you think Moore is not representative of today’s Democrat party, recall that at their Convention in 2004 a smirking Michael Moore was feted by the Democrat party as their honored guest. He sat in a place of honor right next to Jimmy Carter. Remember? 

“Cuban-Americans,” wrote this honored guest of the Democrat party in his book “Downsize This,” “are responsible for sleaze and influence-peddling in American politics. In every incident of national torment that has deflated our country for the past three decades, Cuban exiles are always present and involved.”

Can you imagine the media uproar if a prominent Trump-supporting celebrity—say Jon Voight or Ted Nugent-- denounced Mexican-Americans en masse for “tormenting our country with sleaze?” We’d never hear the end of it.

To read the rest of the article, click here

One final quote from the article

"Bottom line: given all the above factors, when it comes to “deplorable” behavior and causing liberal heads to explode, Cuban-Americans have long been –to quote Freddie Mercury—“The Champion Deplorables of the World!”  "

Make sense now? We encourage Mexican and other Latin's to illegally enter, why? They vote Demoncratic...but kick the Cubans out, because they vote conservative/Republican.

Que The Music. Bob Seger, 'Turn The Page'



January 21, 2017

Que The Music...Bob Seger, 'Turn The Page'

That's the tune that comes to mind following yesterdays Inauguration Ceremony. Although Metallica does a better cover than Seger, in my humble opinion. That's beside the point. So lets dig in and look at it.

First of all, the traffic was as bad as expected, YUGE. Ok, yeah I know, I am getting used to the New York language...and they do have their own 'speak', and this will be an adjustment for all Americans.

Secondly, the rioters were out along with the protestors...smashing windows and being stupid. Nothing to see here.

Third and this was awesome. President Trump tore into the Presidents sitting next to him about their stupid trade deals, and about not putting Americans first.



PRESIDENT TRUMP’S SPEECH

Mr Trump’s first act as the new president was to deliver the traditional inaugural address. He started by thanking all the living former presidents, including Barack Obama, who had just joined their ranks.

“President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world, thank you,” Mr Trump said.

“Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you.

Mr Trump said his inauguration held “special meaning” as the moment the American people had regained control of their government.

“Today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington D.C. and giving it back to you, the people,” he said.

“For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.

“That all changes starting right here and right now because this moment is your moment. It belongs to you.

January 20th, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.”

The president reeled off a list of the problems he believed were afflicting the United States, and promised to solve them.

“At the centre of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists to serve its citizens,” he said.

“For too many of our citizens, a different reality exists. Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories, scattered like too many stones across the landscape, tombstones of our nation; an education system flushed with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge; and the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealised potential.

This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.”

From CNBC...yes CNBC


Did you notice something funny about President Donald Trump's inaugural address? That he, um ... left someone out? 

In what was probably the most populist inaugural address in American presidential history, President Trump began with the people, continued with the people, and ended with the people.
It seemed like the first time in his very long public life that he didn't at least carve out a significant portion of a speech to talk about ... himself!

He kept it about the people by specifically addressing problems that he's seen, but certainly not experienced on a personal level. President Trump talked about the empty factories and the crime-ridden inner cities. 

Each and every promise was prefaced with the word "we." As in "We will ... unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism" and "We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world." 

He didn't even say the government would unite the country, as he insisted Americans' own patriotism will heal the racial and cultural divide. 

Speaking of keeping the government and himself out of it, President Trump didn't even mention how he intends to cut taxes and regulations. In fact, that omission may be why Wall Street didn't exactly soar on the speech. It doesn't mean the Trump administration won't do those things, but it does mean that the new president decided that a speech dedicated entirely to the people was more appropriate for this inaugural address. 

For those of you keeping score at home, he said "we" more than 50 times during the speech and only said "I" three times. And even then, it was in more of an "I'm with you" kind of way: 

Hmmm...we now have a President totally different than the previous President...its gonna be interesting to say the least.

Back In 1969? Deja Vu All Over Again



January 19, 2017


Back In 1969?  Deja Vu All Over Again

Yesterday I was heading to Herndon Virginia to make a delivery. If you don't know, I am a truck driver by trade, and my main money comes from hauling HazMat chemicals. So, Im more than familiar with safety, regulations and yes the immense costs of running a truck on a day by day basis.

So as Im heading down I-95 I run alongside a Humvee convoy.



As I pulled alongside, I noticed a few things. First they were all packed with soldiers, secondly they were from a barracks near my home, which is home to Military Police. So, to extrapolate, these guys are headed down to Washington DC and the Presidential Inauguration.

Right now I get the distinct feeling that our nations polarization is greater than in any time of our history. The liberal progressive socialist left is running headlong away from the norms of conservative society. Now that statement is subjective, depending on what side of the fence you sit.

Lets look at one example. This is a blog by Shani Silver. The story is titled;

Stop Asking What The Women’s March Is “About”

Stop asking what it’s about. Stop asking what I think it will accomplish. Stop trying to undermine a gathering of women by belittling them with questions you’d never ask a man. Stop thinking women have to explain their actions to you, rather than acknowledging you know full well what it’s about. Maybe you don’t.

I march because I’m scared, but not helpless. I march because I want to demonstrate that I can be scared and brave at the same time. I march to show little girls, including the one I used to be, that they can, despite elections, rejections, attacks, and punishments, do anything.

I march because I just don’t want to stay healthy, I want all women in this country to stay healthy. Especially those who, due to economic disadvantage and poor access to healthcare, are more susceptible to not being healthy. I march because a “pussy” isn’t a grabbable object. It isn’t just there for a man’s sexual pleasure. Goodness knows it’s vilified for ever being a part of a woman’s sexual pleasure. It is not something that in one breath you can desire and in the next take away safe, affordable care from. It’s a part of the human body that requires medical attention like any other part of you. It’s why you’re here, and it deserves more respect than ignorant, controlling, punishing regulation.

I march because the color of my skin, my ethnicity, and my religious background should not dictate how important my voice is, how privileged I am, or how valued I am. I march among hundreds of thousands of faces that are all beautifully, remarkably different, and all equal.

I march because I’m in mourning. I’m mourning the loss of opportunity, the chance to witness for myself a female Commander in Chief. A female leader. A female President. I don’t know if we will come that close again in my lifetime, so I mourn. And I march. That’s not called losing poorly, it’s called not being beaten.

I march because I was born to a strong woman, who was born to a strong woman, who was born to a strong woman. If they can do things like immigrating to the United States to start a new life, spending a career teaching children with disabilities, and raising two kids alone, the least I can do to honor their gender is take a walk.

I march to show President-elect Trump, his administration, and members of Congress who support him that they do not have my support – or my silence. And if they can start viewing and treating women as equals, as valuable for who we are, not what we look like, as vital for our country to flourish as men are, if they can move from their current, discriminatory mindset toward equality, I will be happy to support them when they get there. Until then, it is our feet that will move in unison in the right direction. That’s what it’s about.


Can you feel the anger and bitterness over the loss of the Election to this person? She openly declares she is in mourning for Hillary's loss.

Below the story in the comments, one woman posted a brilliant statement to Ms. Silver.


yesterday

If you are marching for equal rights then I will join you just as soon as you point out a right that men have in America that women are denied.

If you are marching for “equality” then you can count me out because “equality” is a vile, destructive, divisive, unobtainable, undesirable Marxist nightmare.

If you are just marching to make a lot of fuss and spew out a lot of infantile PC nonsense about how “strong” and “scared” you are then knock yourself out, but again count me out because I know that most women are not compulsive naval gazers; most of us do not enjoy having petulant public hissy-fits just because some guy made some lewd comment on a bus fifteen years ago. Most of us are a little more grown up than that.

Bravo Svetlana Voreskova...well said and thought out.



Now, lets look at another message. this is from a Retired Navy SEAL.


Can you see the anger and bitterness towards the Liberal Left here?

Back in 1969, I was 14 years old. Just starting to figure some things out. Viet Nam was a war raging somewhere in some swampy country, and our nation was very divided.

Martin Luther King had been assassinated, and cities were burned. Richard Nixon was inaugurated on the 20th, the US-North Viet Nam peace Talks were set to open in Paris. Gold was $47 per ounce, and gas was selling for around $.11 per gallon. My Dad was always buying cars, well they were called cars, most were junk which he fixed up, ran and sold. In 1969 we had a very cool 1964 Ford Galaxy 500. This beauty was turquoise blue with a white top, and yes a 352 V8.

Back then we didn't think that the national split was a thing, it just was something going on.

Now? I don't know. The Left will not accept anything except their will and way. I'm at a loss to define this, except that it is almost a mental block with them.

Look at it, a Presidential change to a Right Wing individual creates such confusion, anger and irrationality. They are similar to Radical Islam in that there is no negotiating with them. Its their way or heads start rolling.

I think that's the hardest thing for Conservative America to grasp, the brutal fact that there is no negotiation with a mental deficient mindset that is more than willing to shut down a city, burn cars and riot over boys in girls bathroom, men marrying each other, thugs getting shot by police...and now a President who promises to protect our nation from illegal immigrants, ISIS and to reform our governments never ending lust for control over our finances and lives.

I get the feeling that we will soon start to go the way of the other countries where civil strife is erupting.

I pray that is not the case. I hope you pray that too.
