BULLY FOR THEM!
(March 10, 2014) Usually, I wait to hear from sources before I write
about scandalous behavior. This time, you would have to believe that the President and his
sock puppets and stenographers tell the truth NOT to believe Mr. Obama has sounded the
depths of foreign policy incompetency.
It's not that the President doesn't have access to some of the finest
foreign policy minds in the world - he just won't listen to them. This kind of behavior doesn't
just apply to incidents in other countries. He has acted this way in his domestic travesties,
his economic disasters, and his appointment of an obsequious military.
If you look at the definition of "passive-aggressive" behavior in the
old DSM-IV (DSM-V is basically a political document, filled with odd definitions of classically
variant behaviors, rather than scientific fact classification), you will discover that it matches
the President's behavior almost exactly. Where does one find "passive-aggressive" behavior
in the real world? We call them "bullies."
Remember the bully in your school? As long as she could threaten, she
was the top dog. But when it came to supporting her threats, she either had her gang or clique
do her fighting, or she withdrew, or ran away. The same was and is true of male bullies. Bullies
like Barack Hussein Obama.
Somebody has to say this, because you WILL NOT hear it from the
MSM (mainstream media). You certainly will not see it on the FCC-weakened local TV stations,
nor hear it on any radio but Conservative talk-radio. The President does not lead. He stands
behind his bully-boys, threatening any one who publicly disagrees with him.
One more thing: Remember that our government is being directed by
only three people. THREE. And as long as these three people are in position, he is untouchable,
and the Constitution is extremely vulnerable to corruption. They are: The President, the Attorney
General, and the Senate Majority Leader. The President sets a rule. The AG ignores laws and
rules as he chooses, while the Senate Majority Leader stops any attempt at impeachment by the
It's as simple as that. Ping. And we become a dictatorship. Run by a bully.
AGAIN, AND AGAIN
(March 5, 2014) South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy talked to Martha
McCallum on Fox News Channel's Kelly File Wednesday evening. Trey is a favorite of both Ms.
Kelly and Greta van Susteren for the simple fact that he knows the law and he tells the truth.
He also sits on the committee investigating the IRS scandal.
Ms. McCallum asked him why they expected her to tell what she's hiding
from the nation when she hasn't spoken by now, except to claim her innocence (she doesn't say
about what, though) and invoke the 5th Amendment. Gowdy answered, "Because her attorneys
told us she would."
SC Congressman Trey Gowdy - still waiting for the truth from the administration
He also said that Lois Lerner's attorney said he didn't like "what they [Speaker
John Boehner and Gowdy] had said over weekend. - he [Lerner's attorney] wasn't specific." All
they had said, for the record, was what Lerner's attorney had told them. Congressman Gowdy guessed
that the attorney had wanted Lerner to proffer her information.
Lerner & Lawyer - more Kyōgen
"She invoked [the 5th] all five times," Gowdy told McCallum, "so that hearing
was going nowhere... "We can't [legally] make her tell what she knows, we can only [legally] punish
her for not talking.. and that [could make her talk.] We still want to make a [non-punitive] resolution
with her, if she cooperates... [but] trust me, we can get her to talk [if we resolve to punish her.]"
As far as I'm concerned, I believe the attorney, Congressman Elijah Cummings,
and Lerner planned today's little Kyōgen play, so that it would play out exactly
as it did. Cummings is known for his active imagination, especially when people don't allow him
to show his phony umbrage, which is what happened today.
A GOOD DAY TO FIGHT
(March 2, 2014) It's time to declare war on Nevada.
They have harbored and protected the number two enemy of the United States of
America for, literally, decades, not only not arresting him, but also promoting him
to the second highest office in the land.
We did not stint when Bin Laden was harbored by Iraq. We did not stint when
evil-doers were harbored by Lybia and Afghanistan. Why should we sit still
while this criminal against the people of America bullies women and children,
forcing them to pay twice as much for a government service as they were paying
for a private service with better terms?
The war should begin with the carpet bombing of Lake Taho, destroying the homes of the
Mafia chiefs who live there and give so generously to him. Then send in the
parachute corps (pronounced "core") to Las Vegas with counterfeit dollar bills
in order to bet on KENO - (the odds are always in the house's favor), followed by
a flotilla of chaplains to guilt out the hookers.. Victory is assured.
Of course, at any time, if they choose to surrender this international criminal, or
show definitive proof of his suicide, the war would end successfully, and they could
then plead for war recovery funds.
It's time. Get the troops ready. We should no longer afford to tarry about Harry.
DON'T UNDERSTAND THEIR INSURANCE(!)
(March 1, 2014) This is a hoot! Do you know WHEN Hillary Clinton
knew Obamacare wouldn't work?
If you don't know who these people are, it's ok, it doesn't make any difference.
That's right. When it was called "Hillarycare," during BILL's first
term! Even then, she was being warned not to claim "if you like your doctor you can keep your
doctor." Some of Bill's presidential papers were dumped today in DC.
MILITARY STRENGTH AND
THE VALUE OF THE BUCK, PART II
If you'll remember, I warned several years ago, and again several
months ago, that the only thing propping up the dollar was the military. The operating
idea was that the stronger the military presence in the world, the safer our dollar would be.
When you can beat the living snot out of somebody, but show yourself
as a friend, instead, your friendship is valued and so is your money. When everybody hates
you and you're weak, globally, your friendship is valueless and so is your money, unless it's
based on something real.
This chart from 2012 ought to scare the fluids from your
body. Look how much the rest of the word depends on a complete fabrication that is the
US Dollar. Interestingly, this chart was published about the time Germany started re-stockpiling
gold, silver, and oil reserves. It's no wonder, now that Obama has ticked off the great
democracies of the world, that these countries are grumbling to change the international
"designation" of the float.
And guess what?! Our money is not backed up by anything. You know,
in your heart, it's true. Why else do you think the feds won't let ANYBODY see what's
inside Fort Knox, when it would be to our extreme advantage to show the world.. unless
there's very little there. We trade paper promises every day we can't come close to keeping
and have the nerve NOT to call it money. Yet. One number whiz has calculated that Germany's shadow
Deutschemark (it's a not-so-secret measure Germany uses just in case the Euro fails) is so chock-a-block
full of actual value that, even at its current Euro float, the Deutschemark could easily
replace the US Dollar at $36 to 1DM. I know that sounds preposterous, and it WOULD
have been, five years ago, or even before two days ago, but that was then, and this is now.
Reduction in military strength is a goal of the Obama administration. He has already made
the proposal through his sock-puppet, SecDef Chuck Hagel. Forget the fact that Roosevelt
made the same mistake while he was prolonging the Great Depression. Forget the fact
that we need to be the good-guy with the mean dog for obvious world-wide reasons.
Dennis Prager said it best - "..the weaker we are, the meaner the world is."
I believe he is correct. We are screwing ourselves and messing with
the very foundations of American ethical influence. Plus we're acting as if we WANT
the dollar to fail so that America may fail, which looks more and more like a possibility,
thanks (again) to Barack Hussein Obama and his company of DC clowns.
FROM THIS ANGLE TEA PARTY
MEMBERSHIP LOOKS COOL
(February 23, 2014) The Elite Republicans have been found out. They are
trying to scare TEA-partiers into giving up their affiliations. None of this is new. Nor is
what I'm about to say.
Congress meant well regulated armed fighters, dedicated to keep from getting screwed by oppressors. The gun
is the ultimate bully-fighter - a basic TEA party principle.
If enough TEA party candidates are elected to Congress - House or Senate - the
Republicans would be FORCED to caucus with the TEA-partiers if they wanted to have their
precious majorities. When you are needed, you can make demands for accommodations. Things
like rescission of the un-Affordable Care Act, reorganization of the EPA and IRS, auditing the
NSA and the FED, preventing an increase in the national debt, going back to the old measure
of inflation and unemployment to show actual numbers, and Conviction on Impeachment of the
President and Vice President - you know, things like that.
The magic number is 41 TEA party Congressfolk and 6 TEA party Senators.
We can have those right now, if we start pushing the issue. And the beauty of it all is that TEA
People will be free from the baggage and misdirection of the Elite Republicans.
SOMETHING NOBODY IS TALKING ABOUT
(February 20, 2014) No matter what you've heard so far
about the economy OR the 29% increase in the minimum wage being proposed,
one fact is absolutely true:
Kate Upton has nothing to do with this article, but I thought I might have a better
chance of getting you to read these comments above and below her picture(!)
The President and all his socialist followers, by their pressing
for an increase in the minimum wage, have made a tacit admission that inflation has wiped
out over 30% of American's buying power.
No inflation? Rubbish. How about over 8% per year since
2009.. Another Democrat lie to hide another Democrat lie.
EXPLAINING WHY THE
EURO IS IN SERIOUS TROUBLE
(February 17, 2014) You MUST see this video.
It explains, in pictures and understandable words why the European
Union must change or die a horrible, agonizing financial death. It also shows why
the UK was so very correct in NOT joining the Euro, although it doesn't say it. It
also shows how, even if Europe changes, its currency will eventually fail because
of overprinting, and will be a precursor to the death of the overprinted, inflated

AH-HA-HA OH-HO-HO AND
A COUPLE OF LAH-DEE-DAHS
(February 17, 2014) Only the stock market soars, making the economy LOOK
good, when, in fact, the middle class is becoming more and more broke and the dollar continues
"..and yer little dog, too!"
Yes, thanks to Democrats and RINOs, you DO live in Oz.
MORE SCARE. LESS SCIENCE.
(February 17, 2014) The headline on the Time.com webpage screamed:
"Children Exposed to More Brain-Harming Chemicals
Than Ever Before"
I am an enemy of "pop" science. I adhere to the principle that an idea unproven is an idea for which there is no proof or there is some proof against it.
Androgenic Global Warming is an excellent example. There is some evidence that warming is occurring in some areas, but there is also evidence that CO2 is a trailing factor and does not cause warming at all, unless the atmosphere is made of #3 fiberglass or 1' of crystal. Were that last bit true, Plato would be ecstatic, but alas, it is not, and Plato is very dead. The idea that AGW could be caused by CO2 is a GREAT idea. Unfortunately, there is that nasty FACT, just stated, which is standing in the way, among many.
The Time.com article is very somber in tone:
In 2006, scientists from the Harvard School of Public Health and the Icahn School of
Medicine at Mount Sinai identified five industrial chemicals responsible for causing
harm to the brain - lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (found in electric
transformers, motors and capacitors), arsenic (found in soil and water as well as in wood
preservatives and pesticides), and toluene (used in processing gasoline as well as in paint
thinner, fingernail polish, and leather tanning). Exposure to these neurotoxins was
associated with changes in neuron development in the fetus as well as among infants, and
with lower school performance, delinquent behavior, neurological abnormalities, and reduced
IQ in school-aged children.
Now the same researchers have reviewed the literature and found six additional
industrial chemicals that can hamper normal brain development. These are manganese, fluoride,
chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloro- ethylene, and polybrominated
diphenyl ethers. Manganese, they say, is found in drinking water and can contribute to lower math
scores and heightened hyperactivity, while exposure to high levels of fluoride from drinking water
can contribute to a seven-point drop in IQ on average. The remaining chemicals, which are found
in solvents and pesticides, have been linked to deficits in social development and increased aggressive
But this so-called "scientific" finding is nothing more than a red-herring to hide the failure of enormous cities to understand their unnatural size, inability to deal with their unhealthy congestion, and the biological and anthropological problems that come with overcrowding. A scientific idea disproven by other scientific facts. Those chemicals have not been proven to be harmful to humans, using the scientific method. Think of it this way: rats are not people - or better, some dogs can eat chocolate and some cannot - what is the scientific fact?
What is REAL is the fact that large cities are sewers and, as civilized citizens, we need to start treating them as such. It was a noble experiment, which really didn't work very well, even in the time of the Romans.
What is their answer? Deny much needed chemicals to the suburbs and the farmland. Stop making affordable piping and asphalt on the results of rat research. Keep children from licking dirt and eating paint. It's a lot like saying, "We very big city folk are dying from claustrophobia, so you country people must starve to death." Obviously, this is a terrible answer.
The answer is not to stop having children or banning needed chemicals that enrich the soil and the lives of people in less crowded areas. The answer, which politicians will reject for obvious reasons - and we will discuss the selfishness of Megacities at a later time, is to drastically reduce the populations of large cities.
OF ICE AND MEN
(February 16, 2014) Saturday, the American hockey team defeated the
Russian hockey team 3-2 in overtime. During
the OT shootout, the Russians were denied a goal which they made (see the frames I have
isolated). The point was denied because the goal had become unstuck from its place and
had moved 2cm (about ¾").
Pic 1 - the puck flies over the American Goalie's shoulder.
Pic 2 - the puck heads toward the net.
Pic 3 - the puck can be seen clearly BEHIND the cords of
the net before it bounces out and away
It is important to note that it doesn't matter how the goal became unstuck; a
goal can only be made in a secure net. Period. It is also important to note that there is no doubt
that the goal was made; it can be seen clearly BEHIND
the cords of the net before it bounces out and away. Finally, one of the Referees was American,
the other was Swedish - people from two nations which are not exactly friends with Russia, for
many historical and cultural reasons.
Since the fall of the Soviet Union, until the advent of Barack Obama, the friendship
between these countries was rough, but one of respect. At the very least, there was fear. All that
is gone now, as you can see if you look at the remarks of Russians and Americans, following the videos
on YouTube. Pick one - the conversation is the same.
The athletes, who are the doers in this situation, have acted with exemplary
behavior. But Russian and American fans, who are the "takers," so to speak, are caught up
in a frenzy which allows little humility. And why not? Both nations are frustrated by the
events surrounding their leadership, and will not tolerate any injustice or reaction to it such
as has occurred at this year's hockey get-together at the Sochi Olympics.
Cynics will say that this distraction is the essence of the Olympics - pride and
prejudice. But athletics is supposed to expose the very essence of the athlete, so that, having given
the last possible effort, muscles aching, no matter the outcome, each can say they gave their best.
That's not what the Olympics have become, but, maybe can become, again.
ROSES ARE SOLID,
THE FAA IS A
TOOL OF THE LEFT
(February 15, 2014) Do you want a good example of government too big
for its britches? How about this: According to FoxNews.com, an online florist's plans to deliver
Valentine flowers by drone have been shut down by the Federal Aviation Agency.
Roses by drone? Let's wait until Uncle Sugar says we can.
Wesley Berry, of FlowerDeliveryExpress.com, said that the FAA officials
don't even want them to continue testing, now that they have had successful trials this past
Saturday a week ago. It looked very much as if the idea was becoming a success.
So what's up with the FAA? Exactly what any person who believes in
freedom would expect; they are protecting their territory. Said they,
"A commercial flight requires a certified aircraft, a licensed pilot and operating approval.
To date, only one operation has met these criteria... and authorization was limited to the
Arctic. Anyone who wants to fly an aircraft - manned or unmanned - in U.S. airspace, needs
some level of authorization from the FAA. Commercial operations are only authorized on an
Why? Does it give them a sense of power to refuse businesses the right
to use the skies? Ask Jeff Bezos who's trying to do the same thing with Amazon.
The President was beside himself, as he gave a speech the other day, trying
to figure out why industry has stalled in America. Could it possibly be because we have allowed
agencies to make law via rules that keeps people from using their imagination?
What about the argument that it's everybody's sky so it needs to be regulated
by SOMEONE? I would argue that it's everybody's sky and that the regulation should
stick to whether or not the air vehicle works. Period.
Or is the FAA simply trying to raise money for the President? That would
almost be more believable.
THE MANY-WRONG-HEADED BEAST
(February 14, 2014) Imagine how wrong the Leadership is if Lindsey
Graham is against their ideas. According to the
report in Breitbart.com,
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), said the clean debt ceiling increase was a "missed
opportunity to do something fiscally."
And what, to their defense, did the GOP Elite say about passing a Debt Ceiling without any
concessions, whatsoever? "I think he's made that very clear that with this president we
will not tackle this country's fiscal problems," sez House Budget Committee Chairman, Paul
Ryan. "So right now, we have to act like we're giving in to [the President]."
Born in Honolulu - Often seen on Hulu - Ba-rack..
President Obama celebrates another humbling of Republicans.
SEEMS LIKE? Whatever happened to, "... he [the President] shall take care that the laws
be faithfully executed..."(- The Constitution of the United States, Article II, sec 3b).
I swear I haven't been taking mind-altering drugs. Seriously. What have the actions of
the Elite GOPers achieved by even seeming to give in? Aren't they really saying, "Vote
for us in 2014, we're the cowards you know!"?
The Republican party leadership needs to ask itself, "Why is Ted Cruz so popular among
the large majority of conservatives?" According to these RINOs, every idea he had would
result in loss of popularity, yet, here he is, as popular as the other five real conservatives,
who have also professed their ideals by public actions.
Politics will eventually lose to ideals if enough people genuinely espouse those ideals. The
reverse is also true. Cynicism driven by politics can win out over ideals if politicians
drive idealists away with political tricks and fabrications - which is what we have now in
the current administration. I just hope that we can avoid a bloody revolution; When that
happens, nobody wins.
THOUGHT YOU'D LIKE TO SEE THIS.. AGAIN.
(February 12, 2014) Not much to say. The President is trying to
show that he can spend as much as a French President on a lavish dinner while his
peones suffer, living from paycheck to paycheck, if they have a job. So, I
thought I would re-print the statistics of the kind of people who make up the TEA party.
The statistics are about the same, except that there are about twice the number of black
members, and, the ratio of people with jobs to people without has, sadly, gotten narrower.
Makes me feel better about TEA vs RINO primaries.
(A story in 3/4 time with orchestration)
(February 11, 2014) You already know that the Democrat Majority in the Senate
and RINO timidity in general are the only reasons Barack Obama has not been impeached and convicted.
And it will be so until January of 2015, if Republicans have a new majority House Speaker and enough
conservatives in the Senate.
I am truly concerned about the statement of President Obama to a group of
his paying sycophants. "I can do anything I want," says he in front of the French dignitary as they
tour a facility, Monday. And yes, he DID MEAN EXACTLY THAT.
"I can do anything I want," "I have a phone and a pen."
"Here's the phone and.."
"Here's the pen.."
Even if we did not have his own words to affirm his penchant for Imperial rule, his acts have
condemned him already. It is a crime to swear to uphold the laws and the Constitution and not do it. He has failed
in both areas. He will continue to sin against the Nation until brought up short, or the Citizens rise
up against him demanding things a cowardly Congress may not.
To that point, Americans are becoming increasingly irritated by legislators who are trying
to be clever politicians rather than express ideals and actions of honor, truthfulness, and love of country.
Of course, none of this will be possible, if the core Republicans elite brush off the
core Republican base invitation to TEA.
STRABISMUS PARTE DEUX
(February 10, 2014) Some of you have written to me, remarking that they are confused
by all of the deeds of the Administration. It's almost as if Obama and his inJustice Department are trying
to commit as many sins as possible to hide the other sins already committed. To clear the detritus of the
current activity so that we can continue to pursue the real sins hiding behind it, I offer this simple guide:
The Federal Government will allow a gay couple the right not to testify against each other in Federal court,
regardless of what a State Law may say.
Translation: "All you straights can kiss my butt. I am the law."
Don't think of the Affordable Care Act as causing the loss of millions of jobs, think of
it as helping single mothers stay home.
Translation: "We don't know how to create jobs so we're going to claim this frees up people from the only job they could find."
There isn't even a smidgen of corruption in the IRS.
Translation: "If I talk long enough, eventually, you'll think I'm telling the truth."
We knew, all along, that Iran has parked warships off our coast, each capable of
launching a limited mileage missile.
Translation: "We didn't have a clue until Breitbart.com published it, but you're dumb enough to believe anything we say."
What difference does it make?
Translation: "We think you're all too stupid to know the difference and too weak to fight us and the MSM."
I hope this helps.
A MESSAGE FROM ANIMALS WHO
REALLY DO CARE ABOUT YOUR HEALTH CARE
(February 9, 2014)
Hi! I'm a Labrador Retriever. Most scientists
think we, along with German Shepherds, Border Collies, and Golden Retrievers, are some of the
smartest dogs in the world. That's why we think you should tell the Democrats to go suck an egg,
when it comes to their (un)-Affordable Health Care Act. I know, you've seen that goofy bulldog
and some cats and birds singing about how wonderful Obamacare is. But, seriously, how big is
the brain of a bird? Why do you think they call dumb people "bird-brains?" And how smart can
a bulldog be - I mean, we love 'em, but, smart? And CATS? PFFFFT! Have you EVER known a
cat to tell the truth? Not in this universe.. Anyway, I gotta tell ya, there are better, cheaper
plans and Obamacare isn't it. And if you're smart like us, you'll avoid the advice of dumb animals..
OK.. NOW you can throw me the ball!
DID JOHN BOEHNER REALLY GET THE
MESSAGE? - OR WHAT?
House Speaker John Boehner
Most carbon-based life-forms in DC are scratching the progressive points on
the top of their heads, wondering how their "sure thing" on immigration has folded, thanks to John
Boehner's statements, Thursday. I would like to think that someone, up in the land of obfuscation and
oration, read my articles over the past few months, or even the other day, but even I am not that vain.
Still, I am relieved that Boehner has finally been forced to listen to the base and
drop this immigration Kyōgen performance (it's not 'Kabuki' if the principles are wearing masks.)
a Kyōgen performance
Said Speaker Boehner, Thursday, "There's widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws, and it's going to be difficult to move any immigration legislation until that changes... The reason I said we need a step-by-step common-sense approach to this is so we can build trust with the American people that we're doing this the right way... and, frankly, one of the biggest obstacles we face is the one of trust."
FIELD GETTING CROWDED FOR SEC.ED.
(February 6, 2014) Please remember this is an opinion column. If you want an unbiased
account of this story, you can find one, in The State newspaper.
How long ago was Lee Atwater and my brother friends? How many lifetimes ago? Seems
like forever. I never met or knew his wife, Sally and she was not there the day I visited hospice to say
goodbye. To tell the truth, Lee wasn't there much either, being almost to his destination to the next life.
I have a very special place in my heart for the old Lee, not the repentant Lee, but the fire-eating Lee who
would fight to the death for a cause or the man he believed in. You already know that my brother, Orin (may he rest
in peace), gave him his first guitar lesson. But I believed then and now that Lee Atwater knew how to win,
and most especially how NOT to quit.
His wife, Sally, has decided to run for State School Superintendent. Since I don't know anything about her,
except that she was like may wives of political people, long-suffering. She was joined today in her quest for
the most unappreciated political seat in the State, by (Char)Meka Childs, the highly effective assistant to
Nick Zais, who is stepping down. She too is a Republican, and is rumored to be a conservative, which is more than
I know about Sally. Amy Cofield who is a bud of the Governor is also running along with Liz Moffly of Charley-town,
Sheri Few of Lugoff, and Gary Burgess from Anderson, whom I met years ago.
As you know, education is part of my post graduate degree and I have labored hard in
the eucation vinyard which has given me a persepctive not common to political reporters. Also, it's important
to understand that I do not know ANY of these people well. So here's what I'm going to do:.
I promise that I will interview, either in person or on the phone, each of these candidates
and give you my candid impression of each one. I intend to ask questions such as "do you plan to implement CORE?
And if so, do you own a bomb shelter?" and, "If the Legislature passes the school vouchers bill, how do you plan to
implement it?" I hope to get clear, emphatic answers, but I know that some will not give them. The only question
is who will and who won't. I'm going to start soo, so if you have a question you want me to ask, send it via
the comments button at the top of the page.
THE BIGGEST LIE, YET
(February 5, 2014) Consider this: The Obama administration has prompted the
Fed to give 80-Billion dollars a month to the very big banks (VBB). The VBBs take that money and
buy stocks with it - especially when things look like they're headed down. The market goes up on
very thin volume and the "Market" gives the false impression of prosperity. Then the phony "up"
market is added to the GDP to puff that up. And, in most cases, it is the only up indicator in the GDP
- the result is the completely false impression that the economy is growing slowly.
If you don't know where this is headed, you don't know what money is - but you'll
be in important company - with the President and all his advisors and contributors in the boiling pot when
the lie that is the economy falls apart - with all those piles of worthless paper to play with.
WHY NON- CITIZENSHIP LEGALIZATION
OF ILLEGALS WON'T WORK
(February 2, 2014) The Chamber of Commerce has snapped its fingers and
John Boehner has responded by dancing a fandango of immigration "reform" for them, so they
can have their really cheap migrant labor to staff their sweatshops. The President has aided
the Chamber in this effort, as well, by not enforcing the immigration laws as written, his ego
being the only justification.
What is so aggravating is that, instead of waiting a year, until there is a
Conservative majority, the Republican Leadership has shown that they are not worthy of the
votes of Conservatives and libertarians - the core of the GOP. They are not interested in their
base because, up until now, they have been able to treat their base with contempt or at the
very least, the base has been ignored.
An example of this is the supercilious idea being proffered by the GOP
Leadership that there can be a third class of residents in the united States: Citizens - born
and naturalized, Green Card holders and foreigners serving in the military, and the new one -
legalized illegals with no rights to Federal benefits. But the breakdown shows this is a pipe
The argument would go something like this: With illegals now legal within our borders,
progressives could argue that they should be able to receive all the benefits due a legalized
person living within our borders. They could also argue that there is only one kind of non-citizen
who can legally live within our borders - capable of receiving every benefit of citizenship, save the
vote. In fact, they would stipulate, no-one should be subject to the harshness of being self-sufficient.
Added to that onslaught of wrong-headed progressivism, the current Justice Department under
the current Presidency would have no compunction to enforce the voting restriction on green card
holders and the new non-voting group, just as they have ignored so many laws since 2009.
This is not imaginary. There are La Raza operatives, right now, colluding with
Roman Catholic and Episcopal (TEC) Bishops and Priests to lobby their liberal affluent, influential
constituents to argue just that, in the halls of DC. Conservatives and libertarians have been warning
about this as a slippery slope, unfair to legal immigrants, jobless unskilled citizens, and the American
economy in general . I say, we're already sliding down the mountainside.
WHY DOESN'T JOHN KERRY WEAR
CLOWN SHOES AND A RED NOSE?
(February 1, 2014) The question has to be asked, and the American people
deserve an answer.
Secretary of State, John Kerry, who served in Vietnam.
Now, to be fair, Kerry fibs much less than his boss O'POTUS. So when
he states. categorically that he has a deal with Syria and Iran and whoever, he actually
HAS a deal. The problem is that it's not THE DEAL that everyone
thinks it is. In fact, to be totally fair, Kerry is like the piano player in the cat-house. I'm
not sure he knows what the real deal actually is. I do not use the words lightly.
Time after time, John Kerry has either said or done things that are the
actions of someone with the wit of a stone, which actions may not even be his fault. The
Syria agreement is only the latest disappointment from the SecState. Not only has Syria
not turned over enough of the agreed upon WMDs, some of them actually do look as if they
came from Iraq and they are having to scrub the IDs off the canisters and may not have
them ready in nearly enough time. My guess is that whoever gave them some of the poisons
to fight the Iran - Iraq war is thankful Syria is being so careful with Iraq's gifts.
In any case, the mess Kerry was left with after Ms. Clinton escaped
her much deserved condemnations, ought to make him be considered heroic - and might well
have been, had the new SecState not followed the dictate of his desperate and amateurish
Commander in Chief. It has made Kerry look like a sad, impotent clown.
(January 29, 2014) Last night, before the SOTU, CNN, NBC, & CBS ran
a commercial from the anti-gun lobby featuring Gabby Giffords and her Astronaut husband.
It was dumb and unconstitutional, but it was also sad. I had readthe article in Breitbart
that they were going to do that, so I tuned in to CNN. The best that can be said about the
spot was said earlier by a BB reader named "TexasStomp." This reader was THERE when
Giffords was shot and you may also become depressed when you read this eyewitness
account. Here it is, without redaction:
Giffords is being used and it's shameful.
Giffords and Kelly
First, she was a very...VERY conservative dem who NEVER supported gun control in the state or DC that I know of. She is from a ranching family. You cannot run a ranch without guns...not in the AZ desert.
Second, her attacker was WELL KNOWN to authorities, had a record of arrests and releases that resembled the best "catch and release" programs in every hunting and fishing state.
Third, his mother was politically connected. An elected Dem who ran parks and recreation.
Fourth, the Sheriff was a democrat and the dumbest sob to breath air.
Fifth, the system worked. The kid tried to buy a gun and was denied on the basis of his arrest record and pending felony charges.
Sixth, he HAD PENDING FELONY CHARGES AND WAS WALKING AROUND FREE.
Seventh, NO amount of anti-gun legislation would have prevented him from obtaining a gun. NONE.
Eighth, Giffords was advised by local leos to hire protection details for little monthly tet a tets with constituents. SHE ALWAYS DECLINED THEM. She not only did NOTHING to protect herself, but she did nothing to protect constituents EVEN AFTER RECEIVING DEATH THREATS from the attacker.
And now she's the poster child for gun control? Gimme a break.
The real tragedy is the people who were not as lucky as Mizz Giffords who was packaged and wisked away by helo while the others had to wait their turn for medical assistance.
A 9 year old girl was killed in that shooting as were 5-6 other folks. They were all on the ground in far worse shape than Giffords but they all had to wait for the Medivac to take Gabby.
I was at the vet clinic across the street when the gunfire started. it lasted about 3-4 minutes before the shooter was wrestled to the ground. After that...I walked outside too look.
The young girl may have been killed instantly. The elderly man who shielded his wife was but she was hit and bleeding. And where were the rescue people? ALL of them were around GIFFORDS and NOBODY but Giffords was evac'd out on the first round.
The next helo to land came a full 8 minutes later. The facts were all in the Tucson
paper. It was disgraceful.
You may be saying to yourself that this is NOT the story we were told by the MSM or the
Associated Press. I would be outraged, if I hadn't already known that the public story had been carefully
molded by the friends of the President. But I had no idea that the situation was that bad. Do Progressives
EVER tell the truth?
"CHARLIE SAID IT WOULD"
(January 28, 2014) Once upon a time, there was a weatherman. And, he
did not fancy himself a Climatologist, nor a Meteorologist. He was a Weather Man. I had
the distinct honor to work with him at Channel 4 in Greenville back in the mid '80's. His
name was Charlie Gertz. Frankly, I cannot remember a single time when he was wrong.
The late Charlie Gertz, real weather man
Charlie had been a meteorologist for the Army Air Corps and then for
the Air Force, when the Air Force and the Army split up. If he and his mates were wrong, pilots
could die, and so they were very, very careful. He used to tell me about what they did
in order to get their prognostications correct, and he, too, looked forward to a day when
they could forecast accurately, two days in a row. Nevertheless, Gertz was so accurate
with his forecasts that Channel 4 felt no guilt at all advertising, "Charlie Said It Would."
They even gave away umbrellas with the saying and the station logo on them. It was an
Just before I decided to reopen my Ad agency, and forswear TV news,
Charlie, who had piqued my interest in the elements, reminded me that you cannot predict weather in South
Carolina accurately more than four hours in advance - six at the outside. Forecasting for
the midsection of the country was an easy 8 hour sinch. But wherever there were mountains,
to the east (in the northern hemisphere) there were simply too many variables for that.
During our wintry weather, it's good to remember
that, even though it wasn't their fault, almost every prognosticator missed the forecast,
except that there was cold and there was moisture of some kind. Some
had guessed that it would snow a little, but it turned out to be much more, or in some places
it wasn't snow at all, but freezing rain and havoc with electrical lines - too many variables
for little South Carolina, with its savannah geography. The only one who was close was
John Cessarich, who, ironically also forecasts for TV4 in Greenville. It really makes you
appreciate the genius of the late Charlie Gertz. In times like this, Charlie WOULD
have said it would.
State of the Onion
(January 28, 2014) You don't have to watch the President's
pretentious, defensive, selfish State of the Onion - it will make you wince with
tears and pain. Here's what he will say:
"Trust me. It's complicated with many layers. Don't mess with me,
I think I can rule America by executive order. America is broke because of Republicans.
My way or the highway - I won't compromise. Republicans won't compromise. Trust me."
I suggest you visit your outhouse, instead. The smell will be the same
as will be the speech's content.
A DIFFERENT VIEW
OF THE ECONOMY
(January 27, 2014) I occasionally get email from really smart
readers. The following is one of those. Let's call him, "Jack." I'm not sure I agree
with Jack, but it's so well written I thought you ought to get a chance to read it for
As I sit here, watching a classic Mel Brooks movie and pondering
intermittently about the meaning of life, I decided to take a look at your column and
headlines as I often make a habit of doing.
Upon cycling through your news headline about "'20 Early Signs'
(the world is yet coming to another end, again)", my first conclusion is that there are
writers at zerohedge that know what they're talking about - and sadly, those that don't.
This article, in
particular, was written by the latter. I can detail why the American
stock-market is absolutely not an indicator of economic progress, or why the English
pound remains established at a higher value than the dollar or the euro, or why disruptions
in China, Ukraine, or anywhere else on earth don't disturb me AT ALL.
I compare this article to something I once read, entitled along the
lines of "More Asteroids Pass Near Earth Than Ever Before". What that article, much
like this one, failed to realize or properly iterate to its readers was the fact that asteroids
pass by the earth every single hour of the day - in fact, millions of them hit us and burn
up in the atmosphere. WE can simply see them now. They've always been there; always
will be. Better communication, to apply that metaphor, allows people worldwide to see
the minor and (sadly) expected violence and chaos of realms outside of the familiar
realm of their suburban armchair quarterbacking headquarters.
Armchair Quarterback Trophy
To take the metaphor and make it a reality, the 'better communication'
I write about is more often than not an editorial and speculative piece of garbage. Thus,
'speculators' drive Wall Street. Trends drive panics. Bubbles need a foundation to blow
up before they burst - and so I can say firmly that any bubble being spoken of in that
article was set up a long, long time ago. In financial terms, that means years - not decades.
If you want 20 generic signs of any impending apocalypse you can flip through any book
on the subject - secular or religious - and you'll eventually flip to the right 20 pages.
Therefore, this means that I can pick any random 20 events going on the world right now
and declare with a high sound and official voice that the sky, is in fact, falling.
The sky is always falling. The sky is never falling. If both are true,
what is this 'sky'? If something is always falling, and never falling - perhaps the key to
that, and this argument, is not to scream that the sky is falling or staying up there - but
to redefine the term 'falling' instead. The editor of your quoted article asks the wrong
questions, which in turn lead them to the wrong conclusions.
And Jack could well be correct. Many people agree with him. But
I have learned that when almost everybody isn't worried, there usually is something lurking
in the shadows that they are not seeing. It is equally important to look at both sides, and I
was happy to read and include this essay, here. Thank you, Jack.
OBAMA AS NIXON.
(January 26, 2014) National Democrats have reduced human beings to animals
who must depend on the government for their every need. They are very close to making their
ideal become a living terror in America. Looking at the wreck they have made of our
culture, our morals, and our economy, I would suggest that their ideals are as corrupt as their
results. As President Obama rots, beached on the same plage as did President Nixon,
his actions become more erratic and self indulgent. And America rots with him.
Obama as Nixon as Obama
Enter former Governor, Mike Huckabee. He made a speech before
a conservative group in which he painted the Democrats with the sins mentioned above. A
Democrat parrott lied in a tweet. All the Democrat Killer Klowns from Outer Space picked
up the lie and slandered Huckabee incessantly, until it was PROVEN that the Originator's
words were just another propaganda falsehood, when she made a sheepish half-apology.
My point is simple: Had someone not come forward with a video of
the Huck's actual speech, the LIE told by Obama's DEMOCRAT stenographers would still be reported as a
fact. But to tell a truth, national Democrats have to lie, because everything they believe in
is either twisted or a complete failure (this idea is not new at all). So when you hear a Democrat speak, remember
that, like Nixon, they're just hiding something - in this case, a desire to wipe out the TEA Party.
In any case, it would probably be best to avoid most Democrats as you may catch something
ANOTHER HARD DECISION LACKING
(January 25, 2014) Marlise Munoz is brain dead, according to some doctors.
Her baby, which she is still carrying - thanks to the wonders of science - may not be in perfect
health, but there is no evidence that the baby is in permanently damaged. It may be that, while
trying to save the mother, they injected her with drugs which may have hurt the baby, but all we
have on the baby's condition is hearsay. The judge, urged on by Marlise's husband, has ruled
that Marlise should be taken off of life sustaining medical help. Something that is catagorically
against the Texas law. You can read all about it, here.
There is only one set of questions to ask Erick Munoz: Why do you want to kill your child?
Are you thinking that it's tough enough to have one child, already, why have two? Do you have
irrefutable evidence that your child is damaged beyond repair? Are we seeing in
you another fear that you will be saddled with life-crushing medical bills?
I think it would be important that, before we judge either Texas, the hospital,
or the Law itself, that we find out about the baby's health and it's chances for survival. But if
we have excited fibs from Erick's lawyers, rather than scientific fact, NO disposition that effects
the baby should be allowed.
I don't know who appointed this judge who made the decision, but it was a mistake,
and the judge's decision is inappropriately rushed.
"A VENTRILOQUIST CAN ALWAYS
FIND A GOOD DUMMY"
(January 23, 2014) And Billy Barber 2 ought to know. As a politician, he has
consistently parroted the NAACP's effort to cheat during elections. When did they do this?
Every damn day. Trying to keep the identity of a voter secret from the officials who are trying
to make sure that the voter's identity is genuine can have only one purpose.
William Barber II, embarrassing African-Americans every day
The NAACP used to have, along with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference,
a real purpose - desegregation. And they got that well-deserved prize. But like so many once useful
organizations, they had to either find something new to bitch about, or go out of business. In the end they
chose from the goodie bag of Karl Marx. Now we have a group of people, who have never changed a thing in their
rich, inherited wealth lives, running an organization which does not need to exist, griping because some people
have more money than others. Involuntary wealth redistribution is a biblical sin. It's theft. A somewhat
odd choice, considering that many of the members are ministers.
I really didn't want to write about this, I was working on an editorial about the right to
life - abortion is still murder except in very, very limited circumstances. But Barber's remarks were so
incendiary, so wicked, so vile, I had to say something. There are names for what Billy B2 said about our
Junior Senator - covetousness, false witness, and theft. But that's not all. If one is to judge past behavior
as a future indicator, in his entire life, William Barber II will never be as sharp or as kind or as principled
as Tim Scott. B2, by his off-color remarks, savaged and broke the very definition of the 8th, 9th, & 10th
I am genuinely angry with Barber. People such as he would make me wish I had never
helped the NAACP, were there not people such as Tim Scott. Yes, I probably should just ignore Barber
- Sen. Scott is so obviously a better person in so many gentlemanly ways than the classless, ignorant North
Carolina bigot, William Barber II. Barber defiles our state and our representative with verbal covetousness, intentional libel,
and theft - just by acting like a dummy.
ECONOMIC RECOVERY STORYLINE IS A SHAM
(January 1, 2014) It's nice not to have to guess. But if you have to, one of the best
places to hedge your guess is information from zerohedge.com, a journal of the best guesses national
and international economics available. The contributors to this blog are profound in their insights and
echo things I've been saying all along. Like I said, it's nice not to have to guess. The excerpt below is
a very good example. It's from Tyler Durden on a subject I have been harping about for years. Click
on the link, after the excerpt and read it all.
"The entire economic recovery storyline is a sham built upon easy money funneled by
the Fed to the Too Big To Trust Wall Street banks so they can use their HFT supercomputers to drive
the stock market higher, buy up the millions of homes they foreclosed upon to artificially drive up home
prices, and generate profits through rigging commodity, currency, and bond markets, while reducing loan
loss reserves because they are free to value their toxic assets at anything they please – compliments of
the spineless nerds at the FASB. GDP has been artificially propped up by the Federal government through
the magic of EBT cards, SSDI for the depressed and downtrodden, never ending extensions of unemployment
benefits, billions in student loans to University of Phoenix prodigies, and subprime auto loans to deadbeats
from the Government Motors financing arm – Ally Financial (85% owned by you the taxpayer). The country
is being kept afloat on an ocean of debt and delusional belief in the power of central bankers to steer this
ship through a sea of icebergs just below the surface."

come into being.
HEADLINES ON DRUDGE these days read like the Year of the Jackpot, that

Hey, it could be the year of the jackpot!?!
PRESIDENT OBAMA CAN'T TELL THE DIFFERENCE
(January 15, 2014) I have stopped asking, "how stupid IS Barack Obama?"
Apparently he is as dumb as he is arrogant and pig-headed. This latest quote about having a pen and a phone
has got to be sheer bullying. It's the equivalent of a 6th Grader bragging that he can pee the farthest.
A hole in the ground
But one might as well ask, "How stupid are the Mainstream Media?" or "How
stupid is the Republican Leadership?" They have all capitulated to the President in one way or
another, and yet all are surprised when the snake turns out to be a snake - or in some cases, the
hole in the ground actually IS a hole in the ground. Face it, events have proven that our President
is plainly ignorant of successful fiscal and foreign policy, and people let him get away with it
But there is a small glimmer of hope at the horizon of this long national
nightmare. Whether they will all be Republicans or not, there will be enough conservatives
(Republicans & Independents) in the 2015 Congress to do away with the un-Affordable Care
Good intentions be damned! If you believe this President and his lies upon
lies, then we might as well ask, "How stupid are YOU?"
FOR RIGHT NOW
(January 15, 2014) I, literally, cannot leave town without the political scene
going crazy. A big earthquake may be imminent. Lindsey Graham is making sense about the military getting screwed over their pensions.
The Leadership in the House has lost it's mind over the same problem. The March to nullify Obamacare
was met with an equally large group of paid pro-Obamacare demonstrators. The GOP is joining the
Democrats in screwing the Republican base. The President wants everyone
to forget he's either a bumbling ignoramus or the biggest liar since Clinton (who was the biggest
liar since Grant). The Democrats are actually bragging about the political and financial abortion
they created in the Obamacare debacle. And chaos gets ever closer to the US Dollar.
I'll write more in a few hours, but for now, just remember that the people who pull
the Obama strings are after an ultimate goal which will make everyone equal by making everyone (but their friends)
SOME OBSERVATIONS CONCERNING THE CHALLENGE
WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY
(January 12, 2014) I sincerely hope you had time to watch The Fox News Channel's "Huckabee" program,
this past Saturday. The former governor of Arkansas and popular TV Personality was sincerely asking several guests what
will become of the Republican Party.
In the end, Gov. Huckabee discovered Saturday, you get the sense that there is a real move on to BOTH
co-opt and/or trivialize the TEA Party movement.
The discussion was filled with "important" people in the Tea Party and some-up-and-coming Conservative
groups. The Gov tried to get them to commit to supporting the winners of the Republican Primaries, should their candidate lose.
But that's not what he got. Instead, he received polite lectures on the short history of the abuse of the TEA Party at the hands
of the RINOs and the establishment Grand Old Control Freaks and why it is absolutely necessary that we have a conservative.
The most profound thing said in Saturday's program - which shows, again, Sunday night, was that the
elite Republicans and RINOs Saturday - the Bushes and the Roves, the McCains and the Grahams, and the people who pay them or
listen to them - don't play by the same rules as the base. They EXPECT their candidates or themselves to be accepted.
To them, "working together" means working together to get what they want with the people they want. As diligently as
Gov. Huckabee persisted, the more the differences between the TEA partiers and the Elites grew.
In the end, and you really should watch the show, you get the sense that there is a real move on to BOTH
co-opt and/or trivialize the TEA Party movement. What this tells me is that the Elite Republicans have no vision and that
they and the Democrats have completely sold out to the "buddy capitalists (fascists)" and mega-banks.
Unfortunately, the TEA Party must use the same tactics against the Elites and RINOs if they are to best them in this
all-important political engagement. In any case, one of two things will happen - The powerful in SC will support their
friends. Those hoping to gain some power will support their friends. If the Elite and RINOs win, the base will walk
away for the general election. If the opposite happens, funding to the TEA Party winner will be cut off by the
GOP Party elite.
We must have detente - WHOEVER WINS IN THE PRIMARY, SHOULD GET FULL SUPPORT IN THE GENERAL ELECTION
WHAT IS IT GOING TO
(January 7, 2014) We're supposed to be able to trust our government resources.
We're SUPPOSED TO..
Yet, here we are - with a taxpayer funded weather service which has
been fudging the numbers to make their predictions of man-made global warming seem real.
This calumny, as you may have suspected all along, is not really the fault of NOAA or NASA
or the National Weather Service. They have been threatened with their very jobs if they
don't lie for the current administration.
The Chinese rescue ship sent to rescue the Russian ship ignored the warnings of
Weatherbell's Dr. Joe D'Aleo and got stuck in the ice, too. They finally did
pay attention and rescued the AGW wingnuts and crew via helicopter. And it's
SUMMERTIME down there at the South Pole, ya know?
Don't look so surprised! We have told you about this many, many times,
and you must know by now that it's no fantasy. There are literally BILLIONS of dollars
at stake for crooked "green" energy companies, all of whom, it seems, are friends of the
current President or his wife. Every one of them point to Androgenic Global Warming
as the threat. And don't forget all the AGW "experts" whose tenure at prestigious colleges
hang by a thread because the numbers they quoted have not gotten even close to what has
If you don't have a hole in your head (other than the ones the Good Lord
gave you as starting equipment), you have to be asking yourself, WHAT IS IT GOING TO
TAKE TO GET THESE AGW PEOPLE TO START TELLING THE TRUTH?
If it's hot, it's global warming, if it's cold, it's global warming. If the
numbers say one thing, they fudge the numbers to make the outcome look different. If the
models break down the way they have for 15 years, the "experts" just clam up. And they are
NEVER embarrassed by their completely wrong ideas. Think about it, one group of these
fuzzy thinkers actually said it wasn't the sun that heated the Earth. No kidding. It's not
what he meant, but it's what his words and his math said. It just doesn't get any dumber
So what does it take? - A new administration which will cut the funding
for these AGW phonies.
WOODY HAYES NOT DEAD,
The only thing missing from the behavior of OSU was Woody Hayes,
in Clemson's win over OSU
(January 4, 2014) I'm only going to say this once, and I hope I don't hurt anybody's
feelings. Ohio State didn't just play rough. Alabama plays rough. Georgia plays rough. Clemson plays
rough. Spinning tackles and late hits, most of which went unnoticed, sullied what was otherwise a really
exciting game. Of course, what would a game on ESPN be without the fawning "homer" announcers? The
football gods do not like naughtiness. Congratulations to our boys from the Upstate. Too bad they had
to play twice as hard to get half as many points.
UN - AFFORDABLE BY THE NUMBERS
(January 3, 2014) Do the numbers. 800,000 people in California
LOST their health insurance, on the Eighth Day of Christmas, thanks to Obamacare.
Why, you may ask, is this important?
It's important, because California contains 11% of the United
States' population. Using the ratio of family content to single or self-providers (which
is actually smaller in California, which is also important because it means the percentage people
who lost their insurance is smaller than in most states!) and the number of 800,000, we
get an astounding number of people who have actually lost their insurance. The conservative
estimate is over 72,000,000 U.S. citizens who have lost or will lose their insurance, thanks
to Barack Hussein Obama and every Democrat in Congress.
Under Obamacare, only those who cannot afford health insurance,
like the Obamaphone Lady, will be able to afford health insurance.
We haven't even begun to discuss the fact that the "30,000,000 people without
coverage" are illegal aliens, and that after all is said and done, 30,000,000 who formerly HAD
insurance will be without it - and, 50,000,000 will be forced into becoming beggars to the
government via Medicaid.
To repeat: 72,000,000 U.S. citizens have lost or will lose their insurance, thanks
to Barack Hussein Obama and every Democrat in Congress. Who would vote for a Democrat in
November? Is anyone that pathetically irresponsible? Yes. There are still some.
DEAD, DEAD, DEAD!
(January 2, 2013) I cannot tell you how happy I am that the BCS is dead. I know,
I know.. there should be celebration about the climate scientists who are on board the Russian ship,
stuck in the ice in the Antarctic Summer. We should be pounding the lying Democrats who are bent on impoverishing
ALL of America through Obamacare, all of which they are now saying they didn't REALLY support. The
IRS are a bunch of traitors, and the NSA doesn't understand what the 4th Ammendement is, and Hillary
Clinton is a big, fat, senile liar who scoffs at the dead of Benghazi.
Gatorade Bathtime for Steve
Courtesy GERRY MELENDEZ - email@example.com
Nevertheless, the BCS is another example of the "few" telling the "many" that they
know what's best for them. Well they didn't, and this year's BCS bowl picks were as dumb as they. If
there is one set of examples which best serves this purpose, it's all the teams in BCS Bowls that Carolina
beat while the Gamecocks gets to play Our Lady of Perpetual Overstatement, which they do at half-speed and
win anyway. even funnier were the ESPN play-by-players, trying to make the incredibly BORING bowl
season seem like real football games.
Don't get me wrong, I'm VERY glad Steve and Connor and Jadeveon and Bruce and Skai
and kids we'll all be talking about next year, had a good night. They are true athletes and worthy of
a place in the pros. I also hope our friends in Orange Tigerland win their Bowl game. But the system stinks
and I, for one, am very, very glad it's dead, dead, dead.
ENOUGH! ENOUGH! ENOUGH!
(December 31, 2013) I will not write another editorial this year! Period!
THERE IS A SHIP STUCK IN
THE ICE AT THE SOUTH POLE
(December 29, 2013) There is a ship stuck in the ice at the South Pole.
Let me repeat that: THERE IS A SHIP STUCK IN THE ICE AT THE SOUTH POLE.
If you remember your third grade science class, you may be asking
yourself, "Why is there a ship stuck in the ice at the South Pole? Isn't it supposed to
be warmer in the southern hemisphere this time of year? With global warming, isn't it
supposed to be even warmer?" And it is a very good question to ask. Why, indeed?
It's not going to get any warmer for a while at the South Pole.
Weren't we all told by the ever-wise Nancy Pelosi and the equally learned
Barack Hussein Obama that climate science was a done deal? Isn't Human-caused global
warming "proven science?" Well, there is a ship stuck in the ice at the South Pole, and
it's proving that Nancy Pelosi and Barack Hussein Obama and Al Gore are a bunch of big, fat liars.
And Liars they are. In fact, the ice is so thick, the cold in the Antarctic
is at record levels. Those who study the history of the ice at the South Pole, know what
Liars the Democrats who support global warming are. They know that this is a repeating
pattern and that the earth has been much warmer than it is now and will be warmer
and colder many, many times before the Sun consumes the Earth in five or six billion
years from now. That's, of course, if we aren't smashed to death when the galaxy that's
headed for us, doesn't crash into us Milky Way residents before that (in a billion years or so).
is a ship stuck in the ice at the south Pole and it shouldn't be there.
Global warming is a farce. We would be fools to believe ANY Democrat
who says anything - particularly about the economy, healthcare, and especially global warming
caused by humans!
CARL ROVE THROWS DOWN
THE GAUNTLET OF ARROGANCE
(December 27, 2013) Are you a TEA Party member or supporter?
Do you believe in smaller government, strict adherence to the Constitution, and
common sense in law enforcement? Do you have morals based on the belif in a supreme
being? Then you are no longer wanted or needed
by the Republican Party. Carl Rove says so.
No kidding! The tubby, middle-road Big-Corporationist has
prognosticated that all the
moderates and incumbents will win their primaries and be returned to their respective
elected offices. He is arranging, through his political company, to cut off any national
Republican funds for TEA Party candidates. And it's not as if he's hiding his endeavors,
either. He boldly goes where no other political advisor has gone, before.
I would like Carl Rove not to be the monkey
of mediocrity, but things are what they are.
Rove represents the National Chamber of Commerce which represents
the fattest cats in America. Now, there is nothing wrong with being a fat cat. I love
capitalism. But these guys are NOT capitalists.. they are fascists. That is, they use their
great wealth to extend their businesses through political means, rather than have everyone
play by the same rules, not realizing they could actually make MORE money by NOT trying
to control the marketplace, politically.
But influence politics they would, and Carl Rove is their monkey. I wish
he were not, I like him, but he is, and things are as they are. He
has many friends and commands much attention. But if his boasts are true, then the
Republican Party does not need you. They intend to continue their march of self-destruction.
I am sorry to see it, but the country has been heading toward fascism for
decades, now. We already have a fascist President and administration. The populace cares
more about the iPhone than they do about freedom of speech. Professing freedom is hard
work, every day. The average American doesn't want to work hard - they think they deserve
Now, in the movies, this would be a terrible thing - and it may be, still.
But there is a better than even chance that the TEA Party will reign in the Republican Party.
It will take hard work, every day, turning out the RINOs and making Carl Rove's boasts
empty. We can do it.
GOD REST YOU MERRY!
(December 24-26, 2013) Every year, about this time, columnists all
over the Christian World set about trying to make sense of their particular society,
in light of the celebration of the birth of the No. 1 Son of God (remember, we are all
God's Children.) I was going back over some of my Christmas epistles, and I finally
made it to last year's. I was astounded when I read it, because absolutely nothing
I am convinced that prayer works. There are many studies which
show that even when Atheists pray, it works 84% of the time. The Knowable Person
of God once said that when two or three are gathered together in his name, he would
be there. Sure enough, the stamina to withstand continues, even now.
With that in mind, I offer this short comment, which appeared
in this column last Christmas. I meant every word of it, and I mean it still:
"AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!
(December 24-26, 2012) I have an idea. Let's all use these next couple of days to reflect on
how we can actually help the poor and the oppressed; Not by giving them things, but by
helping them do for themselves. Yes, their President and their Senate is trying to buy
themselves into permanence. And if we give in or give up, they will destroy the very thing
they think they are trying to save. So let's ask the Almighty, whose son's birth we celebrate
these next few days, for some courage and stamina, not to hate these sinners, but to fight the
sin through which they are enthralled.
And a MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!"
"A VISIT FROM ST. JOE"
(December 23, 2013) Is it any wonder that NOAA is fudging the numbers on
Androgenic Global Warming. Their latest bald-faced lie shows that they are fudging the numbers
(see Joe Bastardi's free Saturday
video discussing Joe D'Aleo's research on the Administration
"fibs.") The fact is that not only was November NOT the warmest month in recorded history -
not even close - but it gave away the secret as to HOW NOAA is cheating. (Oh, and the President
didn't actually sign up for Obamacare, either, because he's covered separately AS PRESIDENT!)
Well, Joe (who's talents are endless), has written a parody of A Visit from St. Nicholas which
reflects the fact that there has been no Global Warming for 17 years. I present it here, in
almost pristine form. Enjoy!
A Visit From 'Saint Joe'
by Joe Bastardi (edited by Frankie Fox) • Dec. 18, 2013
(With apologies to Clement Clark Moore.)
'Twas the week before Christmas, when all through the news,
Were reports of such cold that the folks were confused.
Told global warming is why we should care,
That the point of no return would manifest here.
The children were bombarded with tales of dread,
While visions of climate doom stuck in each little head.
And mamma in her Prius, and I on my bike,
To save all the planet, junked the cars that we like.
When suddenly in the data there arose such a clatter,
The earth was not warming, what could be the matter
The warming stopped, as quick as a flash,
Leaving proponents in sack-cloth, bathing in ash.
For far too common was new-fallen snow,
This is what the science deniers said would happen. It didn't.
More than forecasted, temperatures 0 or below.
And, what to my wondering eye there appears,
But an uptick in sea ice, and even more polar bears.
With a little old driver, called the PDO,
I knew in a moment it had to be so.
Howling like beagles fearing the shame,
AGW pushers called skeptics many a name!
"Now, Denier! now, madman! now Cave Man, you're lying!
You're an idiot! you're a stupid, know-nothing, we're frying!
To the top of the chart! through the temperature wall!
The warming's out of control, it's frying us all!"
As dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly,
This is the worst drought ever, global warming is why.
So up to the IPCC the climate pushers flew,
With a gravy train of grants, and politics too.
Make economies pay, we need no proof,
Just keep saying the temps will go up through the roof.
With the media complicit, my head turned around,
To see global temps level off, then come down.
The warming had stopped, in their mouth was their foot,
Exposing the scam, and making off with the loot.
Readjusting temperatures, from many years back,
Peddling disinfo to the media pack.
At conferences they would take drink and make merry!
While the calumny grew in a way that was scary!
For the tide, it had turned, there was cold that would show,
You can't say it's warmer, if there's too much snow.
The cold that was showing caused chattering teeth,
With the cycle full-circled, not unlike a wreath.
The decay of their reasoning - putrid and smelly
The argument for global warming - like jelly!
And "hockey sticks" broken, sea ice on the increase,
I laughed when I heard their excuses not cease.
Events we all knew were something ahead,
Were still being twisted and something to dread.
"How dare mother nature destroy Warming's working!
These 'deniers' are nasty as Miley C's twerking!"
But the data is there, and everyone knows,
The temperatures stayed flat, while CO2 rose!
So when in the wire, you hear the cold wind whistle,
The AGW agenda is ready for dismissal.
So let me exclaim, as this fades out of sight,
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!"

FREA- KING FAILURE
(December 22, 2013) The President answered none of the important
questions put to him Friday such as, according to his Obamacare chief Security Information
Officer, she warned her superiors who would have told Kathleen Sebelius that the site
was a mess and why didn't you know, Mr. President
Is Obamacare the equivalent of choking a man, saying
that the man is choking, and promising him a watermelon to fix it?
Why not ask - Isn't this last change in the Obamacare mandate a
capitulation to the argument that Obamacare math doesn't add up - that more people
have lost insurance than gotten insurance or Aren't those Million
people who have signed up not really signed up because there's no way to pay or Isn't
Obamacare the equivalent of choking a man, saying that man is choking, and promising
him a watermelon
I'd have been happy if they'd had asked, "Mr. President, why
don't you just come clean and admit your presidency and the Democrat message in general
is a freaking failure" The mainstream media won't, of course, because they are dedicated
to defying Acton's Axiom. "Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely, great
men are most often bad, and there is no worse heresy than that the office sanctifies the holder."
The President is not God. His office is not sanctified. And, frankly, this president
isn't much of a President, either.
ABOUT PHIL AND A&E
(December 20, 2013) This whole mess with Duck Dynasty is what you get when
the media ignores real news. I don't watch the show, but I don't watch Dance Mothers, either. All
I'm going to say about the situation is this..
Duck Dynasty Cast
Phil Robertson has the right to say anything that isn't slanderous or libelous. He was
asked by GQ about his personal belief and he answered. A&E has every right to fire the duck call makers
or adjust their contract but must also answer to any tort in their legal contract.
Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Jesus, Buddha, even Mohammed warned about
what happens when a believer treads in the path of the world and its temptations. The world
does not care about the spirit, and you have to decide whether or not you want live in
the world, but not be a part of it, because this is what happens.
DOES NOT COMPUTE! DOES NOT COMPUTE!
(December 18, 2013) So, the President calls in a bunch of pointy-headed
computer executives from companies that have supported him, politically. This summoning of
the monied faithful is supposed to make it look as if he's personally trying to fix the
horror that is Obamacare. And if you don't know anything about the greater world of
computer companies, that may be exactly what you thought happened, yesterday.
It's just that what happened was nothing like what you may have thought.
My source says that he asked them to find ways to sell Obamacare better and to help his even newer
website guru to get his act together. Whether the source is right or not, calling on these
people to help him is like asking the pointy headed executive from the comic strip, Dilbert, for help!
And THAT would be a disaster. Here's an example Dibert to explain why..
Example of pointy-headed executives, with no apologies to Scott Adams,
since this is precisely what he cartoons about, on a daily basis..
What these overpaid hucksters CAN do is send some of THEIR programmers
to the White House staff to explain to them just how bad a job the original software was and
how poorly the entire Obamacare program is working. It's ALL that they can do.
I don't know this for a fact, but I'm guessing the software is being re-written
under the public lie that it's being "fixed." We DO know that Obama and his crew KNEW that the
software sucked, long before the first deadline. We are learning every day more information
about how much they knew about the projected failure that Obamacare was, BEFORE the
Scott Adams, before becoming insanely famous for his hilarious cartoon
career, was a computer programmer at a very large computer company. The engineers were
smart and the execs were mostly dumb - as simple as that. Understand, now, how come Obama's
response is so completely Obama-like
A CENTURY OF MESSING WITH OUR MONEY
(December 16, 2013) No-one speaks more eloquently about the
danger of the Federal Reserve than former Congressman Ron Paul, MD (R-Texas). He wrote a
great piece on the 100th Anniversary of the Fed which happens this coming week (Dec 23).
After looking all over the net, I found it on a temporary website dedicated to Dr. Paul's
ideas. I am reprinting it here, with permission.
A week from now, the Federal Reserve System will celebrate the
100th anniversary of its founding. Resulting from secret negotiations between bankers
and politicians at Jekyll Island, the Fed's creation established a banking cartel and
a board of government overseers that has grown ever stronger through the years. One
would think this anniversary would elicit some sort of public recognition of the Fed's
growth from a quasi-agent of the Treasury Department intended to provide an elastic
currency, to a de facto independent institution that has taken complete control of the
economy through its central monetary planning. But just like the Fed's creation, its 100th
anniversary may come and go with only a few passing mentions.
Like many other horrible and unconstitutional pieces of legislation,
the bill which created the Fed, the Federal Reserve Act, was passed under great
pressure on December 23, 1913, in the waning moments before Congress recessed for
Christmas with many Members already absent from those final votes. This underhanded
method of pressuring Congress with such a deadline to pass the Federal Reserve Act
would provide a foreshadowing of the Fed's insidious effects on the US economy - with
actions performed without transparency..
My favorite pic of Ron Paul. He looks like he's about to
excoriate some poor dumb congressperson.
Ostensibly formed with the goal of preventing financial crises such
as the Panic of 1907, the Fed has become increasingly powerful over the years. Rather
than preventing financial crises, however, the Fed has constantly caused new ones. Barely
a few years after its inception, the Fed's inflationary monetary policy to help fund
World War I led to the Depression of 1920. After the economy bounced back from that
episode, a further injection of easy money and credit by the Fed led to the Roaring
Twenties and to the Great Depression, the worst economic crisis in American history..
But even though the Fed continued to make the same mistakes over and
over again, no one in Washington ever questioned the wisdom of having a central bank.
Instead, after each episode the Fed was given more and more power over the economy.
Even though the Fed had brought about the stagflation of the 1970s, Congress decided to
formally task the Federal Reserve in 1978 with maintaining full employment and stable
prices, combined with constantly adding horrendously harmful regulations. Talk about
putting the inmates in charge of the asylum!.
Now we are reaping the noxious effects of a century of loose monetary
policy, as our economy remains mired in mediocrity and utterly dependent on a stream of easy
money from the central bank. A century ago, politicians failed to understand that the financial
panics of the 19th century were caused by collusion between government and the banking sector.
The government's growing monopoly on money creation, high barriers to entry into banking
to protect politically favored incumbents, and favored treatment for government debt combined
to create a rickety, panic-prone banking system. Had legislators known then what we know
now, we could hope that they never would have established the Federal Reserve System..
Today, however, we do know better. We know that the Federal Reserve
continues to strengthen the collusion between banks and politicians. We know that the Fed's
inflationary monetary policy continues to reap profits for Wall Street while impoverishing
Main Street. And we know that the current monetary regime is teetering on a precipice. One
hundred years is long enough. End the Fed.
IRONY AS SCATTERLINGS OF
MEMORIES FROM YEARS PAST
(December 13, 2013) Let's pause for a moment from the lies of Sebelius
and Obama and the admission, yesterday - just calling people who aren't insured, "insured",
that Obamacare is a certifiable failure and the Lie of the Year. Let's pause from the
the obvious stupidity of the 2-year budget passed by RINOS and Democrats in the House
(I've read it now - it's crap).
Instead, let's enjoy the humor of the pompous jackasses, using the Mandela
funeral to make themselves look important. There is not one single bit of film or video which
does not include a picture of the (literally) crazy faux-signer, putting an ironic twist to the
No.. seriously.. he.. kept.. his.. doctor..
There is no doubt that Mandela was generous in his victory over apartheid.
There is also no doubt that he was an avowed communist and murderer. So, it is only fitting that
his solemnization in death should be punctuated by a fraudulent clown, who claims to be
a violent psychotic (his words.) "A little mundane Karma, comin' down."
The whole thing reminds me of the interpreter scene in the wonderfully
funny Woody Allen movie, Bananas. There is no way to properly describe it except to
watch it, which is what you can do, here
"My name is Mr. Hernandez, the official interpreter."
..And this skit from SNL here
"Garrett Morris, Chevy Chase."
An irony is a terrible thing to waste..
OK, GO AHEAD AND YELL AT ME!
(December 12, 2013) I cannot decide which is better. I want every United States'
citizen to focus on Obamacare, Benghazi, IRS, CIA, NSA, Drones, Illegal Aliens. And part of me says
the budget deal is a good thing for that reason - we don't need to worry about closing down the government.
The other part of me says the forced reduction of spending we had is better than any budget.
It calls out to me that the Democrats will not keep their word and that they get to spend, spend, spend,
while we won't get a cut until 2022.
Rep Paul Ryan looking for a via media..
But I also know that we have about 10 months until the most important by-election
in the history of our country. I'm going to wait a little before condemning or condoning the budget
deal. In any case, let's all focus on what's important - getting rid of the influence of Barack Obama -
the biggest liar since Lincoln. But in the case of Lincoln, his lies eventually led to the end of slavery -
Obama's lies are heading us back to that damnable direction.
BEST QUARTERBACK IN USC HISTORY COMPLETELY
IGNORED BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
The amazing number 14
(December 10, 2013) If only Carolina had beaten Tennessee. Oh well.....
WHY DUMPING HARRY REID IS CRITICAL
(December 9, 2013) As the world scrambles to pay homage to the half-hero, half-murderer
whose actions are forgiven by many because of his forgiveness of so many who had harmed him, the MSM
rushes away from the pathetic story of the Left's fallen Idol.
Well, everybody except a few citizen-journalist sites and Fox News. And there is no doubt that Obama's domestic
policies are ruinous (except among his true believers and actual climate science deniers).
It seems as if Americans have not forgotten, either, and in fact, are getting very upset about all of the lying and
cheating. But, there is another, more sinister problem.
There is no real deal with Iran. Yes, we were all told that Iran would step down producing
fissile materials. Iran promised not to make atomic or hydrogen bombs. They promised. But they have not stopped
making the stuff which can make the arms of world-wide nightmares.
Of course, Obama is a liar. Of course, SecState John Kerry has no functional sense of reality.
Of course Iran lies about anything they wish. And, of course, Obama could give a fig about the existence of
Israel. When you put all these things together, there is only one conclusion - Obama must either be planning for
a nuclear eradication of America's only strong friend in the Middle East, or he is so incompetent, that he does not
realize his actions are allowing Iran to force the Middle East toward nuclear eradication of Israel.
Getting rid of Harry Reid is the key to saving Israel.
There is a way to solve this problem, now. Nevada must recall or impeach Harry Reid. Now. The Republican
Governor must replace Reid with a sane person, preferably a Republican sane person. This will force the Senate
to return to sanity, blocking the monstrous nominations of known socialists and communists to life-term judgeships,
and creating a working spectre of impeachment to control the out-of-control President.
And while we are replacing people, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell must also be replaced.
Conservatives and Republicans must have mighty and believable voices to speak, not just to congress, but to ALL
the American people. Several of these people exist and are READY to replace Boehner and McConnell - who may be good
people in every other respect - are both incredibly ineffective public communicators.
I GIVE UP!
(December 6, 2013) As of today, I officially quit writing about the market. Investors
are so remarkably stupid, it's breathtaking! I got rid of my final stock holdings, bought some land, and
a couple of things that will have value in a severe bubble-bust. It's as if the Administration has convinced
people that their lies are real.
So that's it. No more telling you what's happening with Wall Street. From now on, it's
employment & real economics, crime & taxes, fun & science, lies & politics. See you investors after the 2014 election, when the
government fesses up, and you're left holding a bag without a parachute.
ON THE JOBS FRONT - the employment numbers are false - they don't reflect the millions
who simply can't find a job.
US GROWTH NOT UP 3.6%
(December 5, 2013) IT'S A COMPLETE LIE! The US GDP numbers are a complete fraud.
In another month, you're going to see a retracement by at least 1.7% - citing a misreading due to high inventory
levels. There is huge excess capacity. Now that the Administration is feeding phony numbers to the bean counters,
politics is king, not facts. Believe Obama's numbers at your own peril.
Personally, I don't think the Administration will stop printing paper until after the 2014
election, after which, it won't matter, politically, until 2016.
DANG! OBAMA JUST LIED, AGAIN!
Presidential Pep Rally! Lying to hide the lies about lying to protect him from
his complete health care program failure
(December 4, 2013) 5,000,000 people have lost their insurance, so far. You probably
AREN'T going to get a subsidy, but you won't know it, until after you've committed and it's too late.
50,000 people per day actually TRYING to enroll, will still CRASH the website. EVERYONE who commits
is being cued - EVERYONE. 30% of the people who have alrady signed up ARE NOT ACTUALLY SIGNED
UP! The security is so bad, that a kid with a simple hack software program he bought for $28 can get every
single bit of information you gave Obama and his health time. We've now learned that there is no way to
reimburse the private insurance companies.
You will, most probably, lose your doctor or not get to see him often enough. The amount of money
you'll be paying is MORE, not Less for your deductible. The amount of money you'll be paying is MORE, not Less
for your monthly payment, if you have current insurance. ONLY the those who cannot afford Obamacare will be
able to afford it. After all is said and done, 30,000,000 people will still not have insurance. The worst part is that
the payment system is not finished and may not be until October 2014.
Today, Barack Hussein Obama said, in a pep rally, things that completely contradict these facts. We
also learned just last night that the budget for healthcare in any one fiscal year is UNKNOWABLE! Please,
understand how important this fact - which is being ignored - is.
When will this end, this lying to hide the lies about lying to protect him from his complete failure
as a American President
MILLION DOLLAR BABY
(December 3, 2013) Have you seen this, yet Take a good look at this picture..
This is art
These blocks of stone cost the State Department $1,000,000. It was approved
by Hillary Clinton - probably another thing that went out over her signature that she didn't know
anything about, like Benghazi. This is what the jaded and corrupted airheads in New York and DC call "art." The blocks were piled onto each other by
Irish-born artist Sean Scully (not THAT Scully).
Art is said to be in the eye of the beholder. Apparently, the eyes of the glitterati
are deficient. To be blunt: IT'S A COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY!!!
Of course, that never kept a Clinton from spending. They've always taken our
hard earned taxes for granite.
STILL VERY TWITCHY - STILL VERY UNSAFE
(December 2, 2013) Actually, we're talking about Obama's foreign policy.
Then, again, that could also apply to most all of Obama's efforts.
Goodbye, Mr. Seay!
(December 1, 2013) I have a picture of Jim Seay somewhere in my pile of
old Gamecock & Columbia memorabilia (not the one you see, here). In it, he is approximately 25 years old -
maybe a little older.
I remember, when I filed it (which is the same thing as throwing it into a shoebox) that I
couldn't tell in which radio station it was taken- he worked at all of them.
Small picture of Jim in his later years. He died Wednesday.
Jim - or "Mr. Seay" to me - was a very, very funny guy. His humor was
what you might call "harbor humor." It was earthy and abrupt, but funny as all get-out.
He did not suffer fools well. No, not at all. So, it was a complete surprise to me, that he
liked me at all. But for some reason, he did.
It wasn't that Jim Seay was full of himself - far from it. But he knew his limitations were few, as well they
should have been, considering what he overcame in his youth. He didn't like to talk about his early days -
probably because they were unpleasant. Most people outside the business knew that he had a cleft pallet.
Growing up in the 30's & 40's, well-done hairlip (lievré fendu) operations were rare or non-exsitent.
Jim got one but was left with a severe speech impediment.
Needless to say, he was made fun of. Jim told me, one time, "you have to
learn to brush off the nitwits and work like hell to beat it" [the speech challenge]. As you may guess,
he beat it - so much so that most people were surprised to the the scar.
That's pretty much all I know about Mr. Jim Seay, except that I respected him.
I hadn't seen him for years, but I had heard he had gone off on his own instead of working for one
of the morons who ran radio in Columbia at that time.
I will make one observation: As these giants in radio die, one by one, we are losing a history that is being
written in the second person - written by people who don't know what it was like - the good, the awful -
the saints and the villains. And that's a shame.
