Opinion: Why We Need Hillary

                                     Opinion: “Why We Need Hillary,” By Harmony Trottel
                        I have so many questions about this election! Like, how could anyone be pro-life? Like, how could they be against a woman’s right to choose? I mean, it’s so, like, just a matter of women’s health! And, seriously…how could anyone be a hunter? We’d be like so much better off without guns… period! I mean, meat is murder, right? How can we kill these beautiful and innocent animals for our own sick and selfish pleasure? We have no right to eat animals! And we are causing other species to become extinct!
                It is, like, so obvious that we need to elect leaders who will protect women’s  abortion rights and ban guns and hunting to protect the most vulnerable among us. I mean, duhh! And another thing, how come some people are all like freaked out over Bill Clinton allegedly raping a bunch of women? I mean, maybe they actually wanted him too, right? Or maybe they were- like- not good people. I mean, how do we know they weren’t, like, pro-hunting, anti-abortion whackos, in which case they kinda really had it coming anyway. Maybe they were even in favor of those zoo guys taking out Harambe!
                And this latest “scandal?” I mean, what’s the big deal if Wiener took a picture of his wiener with his 5-year-old son lying next to him on the bed and sent it to a 15-year-old girl? His son was facing the other way and was probably asleep, and his thingy was mostly obscured by his underwear anyway. Like a lot of smart  people are saying, it’s not like Bill Clinton or Anthony Wiener or Huma Abedin are running for president. How does this have anything to do with Hillary? I mean, it’s like assuming President Obama didn’t love America just because his pastor repeatedly chanted “God Damn America” from the pulpit in their church, or because Michelle said the first time she’d ever been proud of her country was when Barack was elected. Crazy, right? I know!
                And, like, I want to make sure you guys know I’m not a prude or anything ( ‘cuz trust me I’m not, I’m bi…wink!), but when I heard the old tape of Trump talking about groping women…I literally got sick to my stomach. I was shaken to my core. I was so offended…and scared! I thought to myself: “If he gets elected, I won’t recognize my own country anymore!”
                So dudes, like, in conclusion, if you want everyone to know you are tolerant, inclusive and caring, make sure you exercise your right to vote for Hillary no matter what! Okay?
                Or get hit by a bus.  
                JK. J
                 Maybe. J

Michael Moore Calls Trump Supporters "Legal Terrorists"

                 Michael Moore called “any” and all supporters of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump “legal terrorists” during a recently published Rolling Stone interview. When asked about the characterization, Moore replied: “[Voters] can go in there and, even though you're not necessarily in favor of Trump and you don't like him that much and you know he's a little crazy, you also know he's going to blow up the system. The system that took your job and house away from you. You get to get back at the system now and blow it up and this is the only day you can do it legally.” 
                      Moore calls Trump supporters"terrorists?" That seems a bit odd, as he and his ilk won't even call Islamic terrorists "terrorists."
                      Moore originally backed Senator Bernie Sanders, but promptly fell into line to support Hillary Clinton after she won the Democratic nomination. He even has a new film out, “Michael Moore in Trumpland,” shot in a matter of days, that is nothing less than a slobbering ode to “Herself.” The disheveled Rotund One states: “I wrote a chapter in my very first book 20 years ago called ‘My Forbidden Love for Hillary.’ There's nothing to come around on. I was for Hillary before Hillary was for Hillary.”
                Moore also (non-judgmentally!) compared The Donald to a child molester, exclaiming: “You have to protect the population from him like you do with a pedophile. A pedophile doesn’t need to be in prison; they’re sick. They have to be separated from us so they don’t hurt children. But you have to treat it that way.” Really? And your thoughts on Anthony and his Wiener?
                This is the long-standing, tried and true modus operandi of the left: accuse your political opponents of being what they aren’t…and what you are. And it is, disgustingly, often effective.
                This is also perfectly illustrative of what the left thinks about people who happen to disagree with them. The eminently tolerant ones believe anyone who has significantly different beliefs, values and opinions from those they hold are sick and need to be separated from society until such time as they can try to “fix” them. The Donald should sue for defamation of character.
                If our society should be protected from anything, it should be from the vast left-wing conspiracy that has so effectively divided, traumatized, anesthetized and neutered our Republic.

American Muslim Women's PAC Endorses Hillary Clinton

                This would be a great Onion spoof, but unfortunately it’s real news…though it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference anymore.
                The American Muslim Women Political Action Committee (AMWPAC) is the first ever PAC specifically for American Muslim women. Members recently met in Washington, D.C. and announced their endorsement of Hillary Rodham Clinton for President. Mirriam Seddiq essentially created the PAC. She is also an Immigration and Criminal Defense attorney in Maryland. She said the following of the group’s endorsement of Hillary: “Our primary goal is to elect leaders and support policies that represent our values. In the simplest terms, we believe in basic human rights and the right of each individual to live their lives as they choose. Hillary Clinton is a candidate that not only understands those values, but has spent her life dedicated to them in her public service.”
                When did Muslims embrace late-term abortion rights, gay pride, feminism, Goldman-Sachs and white-collar crime? Back in the home country these Muslim women may not be able to leave the house without an escort, drive or hold a job, but here they are forming powerful PACs and endorsing a woman who stole lamps and office furniture from taxpayer funded government offices…twice! Under Sharia law Hillary might be handless, but, apparently, to these ladies, that’s no reason not to hand her your vote.

                In days of yore, immigrants to America just wanted a chance to be free and an opportunity to make decent lives for themselves free of government coercion…or worse. Today they hear the leftist’s clarion call of: “Come get your free shit and bitch about the injustice inherent in our system!” and can’t resist coming over here to partake of the booty and corruption.

Motherless Babies

                 What comes first, the chicken or the egg? If some scientists have their way, the answer might definitively be the chicken…or the baby. In a landmark experiment by the University of Bath, scientists have recently discovered a method of creating offspring without the need for a female’s egg. This “advance” could pave the way for a baby to be born from the DNA of two men.
                Great, government policy has previously rendered fathers moot, and now science may be able to do likewise to mothers!
                Cue “Ode to Joy!”
                Conventional wisdom heretofore thought that only a female egg could spark the changes in a sperm required to make a baby, as an egg forms from a special type of cell division in which only half the number of chromosomes are carried over. Sperm cells form in the same way, so that when a sperm and an egg meet they form a full genetic quota, with half our DNA coming from our mother and half from our father.
                But this new experiment has proven that embryos can be created from cells which carry all their chromosomes, which in turn means that, theoretically, any cell in the human body could be fertilized by a sperm. In fact, three generations of healthy mice have already been created using this technique. Researchers will soon test out the theory using skin cells.
                The senior author of the study, Dr. Tony Perry, a molecular embryologist, channeling his inner Shecky Greene said: “Some people say ‘start the day with an egg,’ but what this paper says is that you don’t necessarily have to start development with one.” Apparently his humor is still in the embryonic stage.
                Early on in this experiment, scientists “tricked” an egg into developing into an embryo using special chemicals that made the egg “think” it had been fertilized. Importantly, the cells in an embryo copy themselves completely upon division, closely mirroring other cells in the body.
                When they then injected these embryos with sperm, they grew into healthy mice that subsequently produced their own litters. Scientists postulate that this technique should work with any cell in the body as long as half of its chromosomes are removed first, allowing it to fuse with the sperm’s chromosomes.
                This ability to reprogram cells- and their fate- raises the possibility that gay men could have a child with half its DNA from each member of the couple, as long as they found a woman surrogate to carry the baby to term. It also may afford the opportunity for a man to fertilize his own cells, thereby producing offspring containing a mixture of genes inherited from himself and his parents. Oh, boy!
                Nothing weird about that.

                What comes first, motherless babies and men fertilizing themselves, or societal dissolution?

FBI, DOJ Collude To Protect HRC

                 Incredibly, immunity deals between the FBI and the Department of Justice on the one hand, and former Clinton chief-of-staff Cheryl Mills and ex-campaign staffer Heather Samuelson on the other, require the FBI to destroy the latter’s laptop computers after reviewing them. Moreover, sources recently told Fox News that a ‘side arrangement,’ of which there were several, limited any search to no later than January 31st, 2015. This precludes investigators from reviewing any documents for the period after the email server became public, thereby preventing them from discovering any potential evidence of obstruction of justice.
                This should be considered obstruction of justice in and of itself. Richard Nixon must be rolling over in his grave. Who is going to investigate the FBI and Obama’s Injustice Department? Why are they working together- and with Democratic operatives- to stymie the near certain discovery of criminal behavior on the part of members of that party? And why were the FBI and DOJ voluntarily negotiating ‘side deals’ when the laptops could have been easily obtained without condition via subpoena? Even Judiciary Committee aides admitted they were stunned by the agreement(s), and stated that Mills and Samuelson already had immunity from the consequences of whatever might be on the laptop.
                They also emphasized that the destruction of the laptops means that the computers could not be used as evidence in any future legal proceedings, if new information or circumstances arise. Coincidentally, the side deals were agreed upon less than a month prior to FBI Director James Comey’s announcement that his agency would recommend that no charges be brought against Hillary Clinton or her staff.
                House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., expressed similar incredulity in a letter he sent to Attorney General Loretta Lynch. “Doesn’t the willingness of Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson to have their laptops destroyed by the FBI contradict their claim that the laptops could have been withheld because they contained non-relevant, privileged information? If so, doesn’t that undermine the claim that the side agreements were necessary?” Goodlatte queried.
                That’ll be quite enough sanity, Bob.
                Sadly, it is abundantly clear that obvious shams and scams trump logic and reason among our political and media elites these days. Forty-some years later, we’re still well aware of the Cold War era ‘Watergate Scandal,’ a comparatively mild, shallow and inept attempt by certain individuals to gain inside information on the opposition party. Does anyone seriously believe that, forty years hence, the collusion between massive governmental institutions and the Clinton Democratic Machine- to suppress information that would harm them but help the American people and the democratic process- will be freely talked about and taught in schools? That’s laughable. Why? In large part because American mainstream media- Big Media- has literally become an extension of the progressive movement. Any substantive differences between MSNBC, PBS, CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, the New York Times, etc., etc., and Pravda and Tass are rapidly dissolving.
                Somebody once said that, “power corrupts…and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
                The United States of America was founded with just that truism in mind. We are in the trouble we are in now because we are aloof to that fact. The Founders would never have let things go this far.

                It is time for a Second American Revolution.

Trump, Hillary And Election News: Film At 11

                 I thought I’d seen everything by now, at least as “everything” pertains to presidential elections. As it turns out, that can never confidently be said in this particular election cycle. We’ve recently been privy to many things…that should’ve stayed in the privy.
                We now know that Donald Trump boasted about groping females. (This isn’t on par, however, with Bill Clinton’s serial rape/harassment, and only proves that he is randy. Or Italian). We now know that Hillary has come to “hate everyday Americans” and is in bed with both Wall Street and the mainstream media. (Bill would’ve been jealous, but fortunately he is in bed with them all, too). It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why much of mainstream America distrusts and dislikes Hillary, Wall Street, the mainstream media, and all of their elitist cronies.
                Much can- and will- happen between now and Election Day. It literally wouldn’t surprise me if we discovered that Trump is secretly gay, or that Hillary is a cannibal. Or that the Donald was born in South Africa. Or that Hillary wants to legalize late-term bestiality.
                Now, if it’s revealed that they go to the same swinger’s parties…

University Of Florida Spooked By Halloween Costumes

                The University of Florida is spooked by the costumes students could potentially wear this Halloween. The school is deeply concerned that some of its aspiring young Einsteins might adorn themselves inappropriately, and is even more troubled by the reaction other students may have to these outfits.
                “October brings fall weather and Halloween,” the college recently wrote in a blog titled “Halloween Costume Choices,” posted to its website. (Brilliant observation, but they forgot Indigenous People’s Day)! The U of F has let students know that if they are offended or scared by a Halloween costume, it has counselors standing by to help them overcome their trauma.
                The blog wisely counsels: “If you choose to participate in Halloween activities, we encourage you to think about your choices of costumes and themes. Some Halloween costumes reinforce stereotypes of particular races, genders, cultures, or religions. Regardless of intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes, causing harm and offense to groups of people.” What about political ideologies? And colleges “know” their kids are going to engage in sexual activity, so many make free condoms available to prevent unwanted pregnancies. So, to prevent unwanted indignities this Halloween, why don’t they just pass out free blindfolds to their brittle boys and delicate debutantes?
                The piece continues: “The University of Florida’s Division of Student Affairs Diversity and Social Justice Statement [UFDSADSJS] reminds us that UF fosters a community that values and respects diversity. An inclusive definition of diversity recognizes the variety of personal and social experiences that make individuals and communities different from one another.” Yay!! Inclusive diversity is the best kind!! (Except we don’t want any Trump supporters, and we won’t let anyone speak on our campus if they don’t share our political beliefs).
                This caring institution of higher learning’s website also affirms that: “If you are troubled by an incident that does occur, please know that there are many resources available. Please take advantage of the 7 day a week presence of the U Matter, We Care program…by emailing Additionally, there is a 24/7 counselor in the Counseling and Wellness Center available to speak by phone at 352-932-1575. Lastly, the Bias Education and Response Team at the University of Florida is able to respond to any reported incidents of bias, to educate those that were involved, and to provide support by connecting those that were impacted to the appropriate services and resources.”
                Bias Education and Response Team (BERT)? Images of student counselors dressed as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles come to mind (would that be offensive to turtles or cartoon characters?), lurking in a nearby “safe space,” re-education pamphlets at the ready, poised to dash out at 1:30 in the morning to stabilize the campus upon the report of a sombrero sighting.

                Now that is scary.

Madonna Offers "Reward" To Encourage People To Vote For Hillary

                 Madonna is urging everyone to vote for Hillary Clinton, and she’s willing to put your honey where her mouth is. The aging pop queen recently told the crowd at Madison Square Garden: “If you vote for Hillary Clinton, I will give you a blow job.” (The 58-year-old singer is apparently down on her luck, as she opened for comedienne Amy Schumer. That’s better than opening for Chuck Schumer, but not by much).
                The “Like a Virgin” crooner, who has been a consistent supporter of Hillary in particular and leftist causes in general, went on to extol her other oral talents, telling those in the audience: “And I’m good.” Sadly, her boast brought loud cheers from the crowd.
                The Material Girl did not reveal any further details of her new get-out-the-vote plan, a quintessentially Democratic action. One expert said the offer to perform oral sex would include both men and women, though he expressed concern that scheduling and implementation of the plan would be “somewhat problematic.”
                This is a new high in progressive’s attempts to drive morons into the voting booth, which in past years has included bribing homeless people with cartons of cigarettes and  free round-trip rides to the polling places. This is a great opportunity for the low-information voters. Let’s hope they don’t blow it!
                So Express Yourselves, folks. Justify Her Love. Get Into the Groove (booth?), Boy, You’ve Got to Prove Your Love to Her. After all, she’s Borderline Crazy for You…and your vote.

                And the Beat Goes On.
(Please see my post from October 16th, “American Voters Slouching Towards Gomorrah.”)

North Carolina GOP Office Firebombed, Media Yawns

                The recent firebombing of North Carolina’s Orange County Republican Headquarters was an act of political terrorism. Fortunately no one was killed, though the office was a total loss. Attackers spray-painted “Nazi Republicans get out of town or else” on a nearby building, but the story utterly bored the mainstream media, which gave it very little play.
                Taking it a step further, CNN’s Brian Stelter actually concluded that Donald Trump’s “overheated rhetoric” was the likely cause of the attack. The genesis of the attack certainly couldn’t be Hillary Clinton’s cool, calm, and rational description of Trump voters as being a “basket of deplorables,” could it?
                Imagine if it was a Democratic Party Headquarters or Hillary’s Headquarters that was similarly firebombed and the graffiti message punctuating the attack read: “Communist Democrats get out of town or else.” That story would have led the news cycle until the election was over. Major newspapers would have had World War II type headlines crying: “NAZI REPUBLICANS BOMB DEMOCRATIC HEADQUARTERS IN VILE ACT OF TERROR!” Michael Moore would’ve made a movie out of the act. Hollywood would have ensured that 100% of the Republican characters portrayed in television shows and in major motion pictures were made into evil, greedy, drooling, incompetents…not just the 90% of them characterized thusly today. Barack and Michelle would be “shaken to their core” and calling for a “fundamental change to the two-party system of government that our Founders brought forth.” College students would never leave their safe spaces.
                Appearing on CNN’s Newsroom, Stelter, referring to the firebombing, stated: “But that kind of action is unacceptable, and we need to have the temperature come down on all sides right now. Unfortunately, Donald Trump is the lead in terms of raising the temperature at this moment in time.”

                That is incorrect, Brian. By actively and aggressively taking sides in this election, protecting their fellow elites at all costs instead of speaking truth to power, and treating said truth the same way they treat Mr. Trump, the media itself is largely responsible for the toxic atmosphere in which we now find ourselves.

W.H.O. Says Individuals Have A Right To Reproduce

                 People who don’t have sex or who struggle to find a partner with whom to have children will now be considered as disabled by the World Health Organization (WHO), according to the website. Infertility has been considered a disability for some time now, but the new WHO guidelines are much more inclusive, apparently embracing those who are very shy or just struck out at the local watering hole.
                WHO touts the change, stating that it will give every individual “the right to reproduce.”
                Every individual has the right to reproduce? Cloning, cell-division?
                Dr. David Adamson, one of the new standard’s authors, sees them as a “big chance” for single and gay people, saying: The definition of infertility is now written in such a way that it includes the rights of all individuals to have a family, and that includes single men, single women, gay men, gay women. It puts a stake in the ground and says an individual’s got a right to reproduce whether or not they have a partner. It’s a big change. It fundamentally alters who should be included in this group and who should have access to healthcare. It sets an international legal standard. Countries are bound by it.” Ah, I see.
                The right of single men, single women and gays and lesbians to reproduce? An individual has a right to reproduce whether or not anyone else is involved? We sure are doing a lot of “fundamentally altering” things.
                 Josephine Quintavalle, Director of the group Comment on Reproductive Ethics, is less than thrilled with this new directive. “This absurd nonsense is not simply re-defining infertility but completely side-lining the biological process and significance of natural intercourse between a man and a woman.
                Sadly Josephine, that would be the whole point.
                She continued: “How long before babies are created and grown on request completely in the lab?” Probably not long.
                We are all bound by climate-change agreements? We are all bound by reproductive-rights changing agreements?
                There are a few things we seem utterly incapable of reproducing here in the United States, however: the freedom, sovereignty, dignity, logic, courage, character and wisdom our Founders bequeathed to us.

Swedish Prosecutor Rules ISIS Flag Not Hate Speech

                Swedish prosecutor Gisela Sjövall recently announced that she won’t be prosecuting a 23-year-old man who had posted the black ISIS flag on his Facebook page last June. The man is a Syrian now living in Laholm, a city on Sweden’s west coast. Ms. Sjövall ruled that the ISIS flag does not constitute hate speech and is therefore legal under Swedish law.
                Sjövall stated that while the swastika had come to symbolize a hatred for Jews, the same could not yet be said of the ISIS flag, though she added, “That could change in ten years.” Under Swedish law, for an image or statement to represent “incitement to hatred,” it needs to threaten or disparage a specific group of persons in connection to race, color, national or ethnic origin, religious belief or sexual orientation. Oh, come on. NAZI swastikas and flags of the Third Reich didn’t have text on them stating, “We hate Jews,” either. And radical Islamists have been killing Jews, among others, for far longer than the NAZIs did, yet the Swastika flag is verboten in Sweden, but ISIS’s is okay? Would Ms. Sjövall rule in favor of the Confederate flag?
                “If there had been anything in the text with more specific formulations about certain groups, for example homosexuals, the ruling could have been different,” Sjövall remarked. “For me, there are no doubts about the decision not to prosecute.”
                “Put simply, one can say that he is expressing contempt for “all others,” and not against a specific ethnic group,” Sjövall explained to SVT, a Swedish Public Television station.
                So, in her own words, inciting hatred towards all other groups- everyone else- is not hate speech, but disparaging a smaller group is.
                That’s funnier than any Ole’ and Lena joke. Welcome to ‘reason,’ 2016 style.
                (Conservative talk show hosts have been banned from some European countries and even mild-mannered, intellectual Dennis Prager's "Prager University" videos have been banned from You-Tube...and the ISIS flag is okay on social media?)

New York Mayor Bill De Blasio A Terrorist?

                The Team Hillary Clinton emails released by WikiLeaks are appointment reading, and one thing is certain: there is a consistent theme amongst them: the "Basket of Deplorables" is truly ginormous!
                This latest batch reveals its hatred of traditional Catholics, southerners, and Bernie Sanders supporters... such as New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. De Blasio had the audacity to go on NBC's "Meet The Press" in the late spring of 2015 and not endorse Hillary. What is more, he praised Bernie Sanders. This apparently didn't sit well with Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook and spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri. Mook fired off a brief email to Palmieri: "Wow. What a terrorist," to which Palmieri responded, "Told you!"
                I am anything but a Sanders fan, and have nothing but disdain for the mayor, but this is not exactly a well thought out, reasoned argument. The Obama administration, of which Hillary was a part, won't even call terrorists "terrorists," but two of Her top aides reflexively call the current mayor of New York a terrorist? Their knee-jerk reaction is illustrative. This is what passes for' thinking' on the left: "If you disagree with me, you are a terrorist." It is no wonder that they want to ban freedom of speech and repeal the First Amendment, among others.
                Emails apparently hacked from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta's private account also referred to Bernie Sanders supporters in general as "self-righteous" whiners. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black! Say hello to the Trump supporters, folks. Into the basket you go. Other emails called Hispanic party leaders such as Bill Richardson "needy Latinos," labeled CNN anchor Jake Tapper "a d--k," and even savaged erstwhile Clinton ally Sidney Blumenthal. Into the basket, boys! (These comments comprised part of an April 2011 email discussion between Ms. Palmieri and John Halpin, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, an organization he founded).
                These emails should be by far the most important revelations of the presidential race to date, particularly the ones relating how Hillary Clinton has come “to hate everyday Americans” and emphasizing the need for her kind to maintain political power by producing “an unaware and compliant citizenry.” Slaves. This, while tragically not surprising to engaged and informed people, should be seen as potentially the most important and game-changing news for America since World War II… if not the Civil War. Yet, in a preposterous travesty and titanic miscarriage of justice, American mainstream media outlets are steadfastly refusing to report on this ongoing story.
                The same media types that got so aroused by their own importance in doggedly unearthing evidence of the Watergate scandal are now desperately attempting to help Hillary cover up her vastly more damaging misbehavior and incompetence.
                Try to imagine what the media response would have been if Donald Trump was caught saying he “hates everyday Americans,” or his campaign was caught stating that they needed to get or retain power by “producing an unaware and compliant citizenry.” He would have been summarily forced out of the race.

President Obama Blames Climate Change For The War In Syria

                 President Obama recently blamed climate change for the war in Syria, stating that “powerful” studies suggest “the droughts that happened in Syria contributed to the unrest and the Syrian civil war.” His remarks came during a high-level discussion with renowned scientist (and loving family man!) Leonardo DiCaprio.
                This enlightened, sapient commentary  has already led scholars, scientists and historians to develop new theories about the origins of the Civil War, World Wars I & II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, both Gulf Wars, and the War on Women, among other momentous conflicts.
                The Civil War took place at the tail end of the Little Ice Age, a period of general cooling and unpredictability. Incredibly, there were dramatic fluctuations in weather, with one year bringing in an intensely cold winter, and the next a searingly hot summer. Experts now postulate that the unstable weather, rather than differences over slavery and state’s rights, was the proximate cause of the war.
                The assassination of Archduke Ferdinand has always been thought to be the cause of the Great War, World War I. But now, progressive, perspicacious thinking is revealing that the unusually cold weather leading up to and during the heinous war to end all wars may be the real culprit. Moreover, among many experts, similar weather anomalies are now overshadowing the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor as the real reason behind America’s entry into World War II.
                New insights into the genesis of the Korean War are also coming to light. The reason North Korea, backed by the Soviet Union and China, invaded South Korea in 1950 was because these country’s troops were so cold, they simply needed to march and fight to stay warm, experts now aver.
                The Vietnam War was fought during an era when the best and the brightest were certain that planet Earth was entering a new Ice Age. This assertion was found severely wanting during the stiflingly hot Vietnam summers at the time, causing one expert to remark, “I don’t get it. It seems like the weather is always changing!”
                The Gulf Wars are generally thought of as being the result of failed Bush Era policies. This, at least, is one point upon which experts can still agree, though they also blame Bush Era policies for a rapid increase in global warming.
                As for the War on Women, many astute observers note that the warmer it is, the worse women are treated. In many parts of Africa and the Middle East, for example, women are treated like chattel or livestock, and possess virtually no rights. There are compelling arguments, discerning experts claim, for believing that, as the northern climes heat up, women in places like the U.S., Canada, the Netherlands and Finland will succumb to overt brutality as well.

Biden Says Trump's Comments Are Assault, Bill's Assaults "Shouldn't Matter"

                Vice President Joe Biden, in an interview aired recently on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” claimed that Donald Trump’s 2005 comments about groping women qualify as “sexual assault” and “abuse of power.” Conversely- and perversely- he ‘argues’ that ‘allegations’ of sexual harassment/misconduct/rape levied against former President (and soon to be First Man) Bill Clinton “shouldn’t matter” in terms of the upcoming election.
                Continuing the left’s full frontal assault on the proper use of language (and gray matter), Biden opined: “What (Trump) said is textbook definition of sexual assault,” proving that he has never read the textbook definition of sexual assault. He continued by averring: “This is not a guy who should be representing the United States.”
                Right. Can’t have the private citizen who engaged in a bit of locker room banter represent the U.S.; much better to have the alleged serial rapist, a man who actually committed adultery while he was an elected representative of the people- in the Oval Office of the White House- and the woman he cheated on (who defended him and continues to excoriate those her adulterous hubby harassed) retake the reins of American power.
                Dear God.
                Biden added: “I can’t make excuses for Bill Clinton. But he paid the price. He was impeached, expressed deep sorrow.” So the fact that he was impeached is a plus, absolves him from any current scrutiny?
                I’m sure if Pat Nixon had run for president after her husband Richard M. Nixon resigned before he could be impeached, ‘Tricky Dick’ would’ve received the same pass the press is giving Bill now, right? “He was nearly impeached, resigned in disgrace, so he’s good. Paid his dues. Shouldn’t matter.”

If you aren’t familiar with the contents of the Wikileaks email dumps, the FBI reports, the Project Veritas videos, etc., etc., you really aren’t informed enough to cast a legitimate vote).
                After the release of the Trump audiotape, Biden tweeted: “The words are demeaning. Such behavior is an abuse of power. It’s not lewd. It’s sexual assault.” Sexual assault, by definition, involves “rape” or physical “molestation.” The definition of lewd is “obscene or indecent, as in language or songs.”
                Michelle Obama claimed to be “shaken to her core” by Trump’s comments, yet she and Barack have welcomed numerous rap ‘artists’ to the White House, and have called Beyoncé a “perfect role model for their daughters.”
                Wanna see lewd? Wanna read sexual assault lyrics set to ‘music,’ made into an ‘art form’? Check out some of her songs, and those of the other rappers the Obamas have feted.

High School Teacher Smears Trump Supporters

                 A Smithtown High School West teacher’s recent social media post has spawned controversy. The Long Island educator labeled some of her students “racist” simply for supporting the Republican presidential candidate, Donald trump. The post read, “This week is spirit week at Smithtown HS West. It’s easy to spot which students are racist by the Trump gear they’re sporting for USA Day.”
                Students at the school reacted in various ways to the obviously vile, false and intolerant post. One said, “It’s not a good idea because then like she influences the students with the same ideas.” Another student’s parent exclaimed: “There’s no reason for her to pass judgment on those kids on a social platform.”
                And another parent stated, “I’m not big on social media, but I think that in the classroom they need to show both sides.”
                A majority of people voted for Barack Obama- in part because he is black- with no repercussions. But if one plans to vote for the white male candidate in the upcoming election, they must literally prepare to be assaulted.
                It is easy to spot who is racist and intolerant…by their reaction to Trump gear.
                And it is just as easy to spot who detests traditional Catholics, conservatives, Sanders supporters, “needy Latinos,” Trump supporters, southerners, and “everyday Americans” by the Clinton gear they sport, isn’t it?

American Voters Slouching Towards Gomorrah

                 Too many American voters, including the vast majority of liberals or “Progressives,” now ask themselves only three questions when deciding who gets their vote:

1)    Who will give me the most money, let me work less for the same money, or- preferably!- give me more money for working less?
2)     Who will hammer the rich hardest?
3)    Who will legalize polyamory/necrophilia/incest/(fill-in-the-blank with your personal favorite debauched activity that you want recognized as equal to or perhaps even more enlightened than boring, old potentially procreative sex between a married man and woman).

                We are divided now. On one side are those that believe in America’s founding principles. On the other are those that don’t, don’t know what they are/were, or don’t even care. We are on our way to becoming a nation primarily divided between those who believe in Sharia Law on the one hand, and underemployed, drug-addled, debauched, ignoramuses on the other.
                Cue Stealer’s Wheel now: “There’s clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right, here I am stuck in the middle with you.” Is it any wonder those in the middle (middle of the country, middle class, etc.) are ticked off?

                Listen carefully and you can hear the Founders…gently weeping.

James Madison University Bans 35 Phrases From Campus Use

                 James Madison would be appalled. At the university named after the esteemed founder and “Father of the Constitution,” this year’s freshman orientation leaders were given a list of 35 things they were to avoid saying. The verboten phrases included “you have such a pretty face,” and “love the sinner, hate the sin.”
                These demonic ditties “widen the diversity gap” and do not “create a safe and inclusive environment,” according to a seven-page handout given to the tolerant and inclusive young scholars. According to The College Fix, the list appears to be adapted from a book by Dr. Maura Cullen titled, “35 Dumb Things Well-Intended People Say: Surprising Things We Say that Widen the Diversity Gap.” In each case, an explanation was given as to why the phrase should be avoided.
                Bill Wyatt, James Madison University’s director of communications, told the website via email that “this was just an exercise, prior to orientation, to get our volunteers to understand how language affects others.” However, page one of the handout states that orientation leaders should “use this handout as a resource” to help accomplish the goal of creating a “safe and inclusive environment for your first year students.” The handout also instructed the volunteers to “take some time to reflect on your prejudices and biases, and how that might affect your interactions with students.”
                Per The College Fix, here are the top 35 dumb things to avoid saying on campus, with my own comments and/or explanations as to why they should be avoided like a back-alley hooker:

1. “Some of my best friends are …”-by attempting to be inclusive you are labeling and being exclusive
2. “I know exactly how you feel.”-
not possible for a white male
3. “I don’t think of you as -as a what?
4. “The same thing happens to me too.”-it can’t, because you are not the other person/minority
5. “It was only a joke! Don’t take things so seriously.”-
screw you, that’s easy for you to say, Reginald (the straight, wealthy) Whiteboy
6. What do ‘your’ people think.”- okay, this one I wouldn’t use, but “your people” refer to themselves this way frequently (“my people,” “our people”)
7. “What are you?” or “Where are you really from?”-
8. “I don’t see color” or “I’m color blind.”-
you are blind to our pain…and a liar!
9. “You are so articulate.”-
that certainly is a vicious slur on a college campus today
10. “It is so much better than it used to be. Just be patient.”-
even after 8 years of Obama, American society is still permeated by injustice, so don’t tell me to be patient you bigoted assh*le
11. “You speak the language very well.”-the handout actually states that this phrase “also asserts that there is a proper way to speak English,” and “that all native English speakers are proficient.” First off, we wouldn’t want to say that any use of the language is any better or worse than any other, would we? And we’re paying how much for this level of excellence? Secondly, it does not assert that all native English speakers are proficient. (Ever heard Ryan Lochte, Harry Reid, Roseanne Barr, or Donald Trump speak?)
12. Asking black people about their hair or hygiene
.-but asking other folks about theirs is okay?
13. Saying to LBGTQ people “what you do in the privacy of your own bedroom is your business.”-this is supposed to- hurtfully- minimize the breadth and depth of their relationship outside of the boudoir. I suggest just adding “-or wherever-” after bedroom and you should be golden, so to speak.
14. “Yes, but you are a ‘good’ one.”-
a phrase that has never been uttered on campus about a conservative, white male
15. “You have such a pretty face.”-
supposedly this phrase actually means, “if only you weren’t fat.” Then does the phrase, “you have nice ta-tas” actually mean “if only you had a nice butt?”
16. “I never owned slaves.”-like that absolves you from being complicit in my people’s plight, assh*ole.
17. “If you are going to live in this country, learn to speak the language!”- outrageous even to think such a thing.
18. “She/he is a good person. She/he didn’t mean anything by it.”-
I bet they aren’t/did.
19. “When I’ve said the same thing to other people like you, they don’t mind.”- this is offensive. Even if we all are the same, there is no one like you!
20. Calling women “girls, honey, sweetie pie” or other familiar terms.-
I’ve been called honey, dear and sweetie by females many, many more times than I’ve ever called females by the same terms…and I love it!
21. When people of color say, “It is not the same thing.”-probably is.
22. When people of faith say, “Love the sinner, hate the sin.”-
guess you either aren’t supposed to believe that sin exists or are supposed to love the sin, too.
23. When white men say, “We are the ones being discriminated against now!”-
I know exactly how you feel…some of my best friends are white, and the same thing has happened to me!
24. Referring to older people as “cute.”-what a heinous crime against humanity! Must make ‘em feel terrible!
25. Asking a transgender person, “What are you really? A man or a woman?”-I know, I know…whatever they identify as at that moment is what they are…at that moment. (I think “they” is the right pronoun!)
26. Referring to the significant other, partner, or spouse of a same gender couple as their “friend.”-
cowardice! The proper thing to do is emphasize the sexual ways they use their non-complimentary genitalia!
27. “Why do ‘they’ (fill in the blank) always have to sit together? They are always sticking together.”-
guess minorities can be non-inclusive, too.
28. “People just need to pick themselves up by their bootstraps.”-
isn’t it better if the government carries you to bed?
29. People with disabilities are “courageous.”-what sick bleep would let that comment escape his abled mouth?
30. “That’s so gay/queer. That’s so retarded.”-pretty sure this/these one(s) is/are long out of favor.
31. “I don’t see difference. We are all part of the same race, the human race.”-
well that’s just offensive on its face.
32. I don’t care if you are pink, purple or orange, I treat all people the same.”-but what if people are fuchsia, mauve and teal?
33. Asking a transgender person, “Have you had the operation.”-
much better to ask, “have you surgically swapped your genitalia lately, or are you just pretending to be the opposite sex?”
34. Saying to a Jewish person, “You are so lucky to have ‘your’ Christmas spread over a week!”-
bet it’s because you can make a few more sheckels; and, anyway, you can’t say “Christmas” on campus anymore, anyhow.
35. “Here’s another book on political correctness.”-here’s another book

Satanists Rising

                America, at first blush, would seem a highly unlikely place for Devil worship to take root. Sadly, that is just what appears to be occurring. Satanists are becoming main-stream.  In fact, explicitly satanic groups have begun drawing attention to themselves in the context of public governmental ceremonies.
                The Satanic Temple, of which I’ve previously written, wasn’t founded until 2013, yet has seven chapters in the U.S. and Europe and a membership of over 100,000. It fights for “political change” and is, of course, virulently opposed to conservatism. It is currently attempting to embed Lucifer in the public school system via “After School Satan” clubs. (See my post of August 2nd, 2016). They have met with some success and currently boast A.S.S. clubs (my acronym, not theirs) in nine school systems. The Satanic Temple also aims to place demonic books on the shelves of public school libraries, and have satanic prayers recited at high school games.
                And now the Satanic Temple has a new international headquarters…in Salem, Massachusetts. So far, residents and business owners alike seem at ease with adding Satanists to their city’s mix of Wiccans, Warlocks, and faiths outside of the mainstream. Dominick Pangallo, Salem Mayor Kimberley Driscoll’s chief of staff, claims that they have only received “a total of four phone calls” from people concerned about their town becoming the World Headquarters of the Church of Satan. Live and let live as they say. The city has traded Puritans for Satanists. Progress…pass it on!
            In recent months, satanic invocations were given at several different city council meetings around the United States. According to various online and newspaper reports, a member of the Satanic Temple was allowed to make an opening “prayer” to Lucifer at a Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly meeting last month. Local resident and Satanic Temple member Iris Fontana started off the invocation by stating: "Let us stand now unbowed and unfettered by arcane doctrines born of fearful minds in darkened times. Let us embrace the Luciferian impulse to eat of the tree of knowledge and dissipate our blissful and comforting delusions of old. Let us demand that individuals be judged for their concrete actions, not their fealty to arbitrary social norms and illusory categorizations.”
                She ended the prayer with “Hail Satan.”
                Council members stood in a circle with remarkable sanguinity as she spoke.
                In July another Satanist was allowed to give an invocation prior to a Pensacola, Florida city council meeting. Observers say that these invocations seem to be mostly a call for people to turn against their religious beliefs and embrace agnosticism. These satanic prayers have sparked debate about whether city councils should just do away altogether with their traditions of opening meetings with prayer.
                That, of course, is exactly what the Satanists want.

                You know what they say: “Talk of the devil and he is sure to appear.” If we continue with this devil-may-care attitude, there will be hell to pay.

The E.U. Presses British Press

                The European Union (EU) has directed Britain to crack down on its media. The EU, still smarting from Brexit, actually stated that the British press should not report when terrorists are Muslims. This directive was just one in a slew of demands the EU issued to the new British government.
                Could there be a better reminder of why Brexit passed to begin with?
                A European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) report found an increase in hate speech and racist violence in the UK from 2009 to 2016. ECRI Chair Christian (!) Ahlund blamed the free press, sniffing: “It is no coincidence that racist violence is on the rise in the UK at the same time as we see worrying examples of intolerance and hate speech in the newspapers, online and even among politicians.”
                 The worrying examples of intolerance and hate speech he should be concerned with are those of bombings, shooting, beheadings and stabbings committed by Islamic terrorists, Allahu Akbar!
                The report lists 23 recommendations to Theresa May’s government, including changes to criminal law, equality law, and freedom of the press, while urging the government to “give more rigorous training” to reporters. (That is either a non-sequitur or a preposterous euphemism, or both).
                Unable to resist the urge to comment on the historic Brexit vote, Ahlund snarkily opined: “The Brexit referendum seems to have led to a further rise in ‘anti-foreigner’ sentiment, making it even more important that the British authorities take the steps outlined in our report as a matter of priority.”
                Mr. Ahlund, you don’t have the right to meddle in a free and sovereign nation’s business or tell that country’s free press how to behave.

                It’s good to be gone, isn’t it, Brits?

The Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire...2.0

                 I have recently been perusing various articles on the decline and fall of the Roman Empire in order to see what similarities, if any, there may be to the remarkable American Devolution occurring now. I culled the following five major reasons from amongst the many pages of fact and opinion that I digested, largely because they were mentioned in nearly every recounting of the Roman dissolution. I present them here in no particular order:

*Invasion by Barbarians and the arrival of the Huns
*A financial crisis brought on by government overspending and oppressive taxation
*Widespread government incompetence and corruption leading the people to lose faith in their leaders
*Citizens losing their civic virtue
*Society (shedding a more disciplined, tougher military lifestyle and) becoming soft and weak

                Any of those sound familiar?
                Every one of these factors ring true today. At first blush, the only one of them that could possibly be logically contested would be “invasion by Barbarians and the arrival of the Huns,” but, that being the case, I would encourage you to think again.
                                   History recalls how great the fall can be
                                   While everybody’s sleeping, the boats put out to sea
                                   Too late the prophets cry
                                   The island’s sinking, let’s take to the sky
                                   (A snippet from the album, “Even in the Quietest Moments,”  by Supertramp: written by Richard Davies, Roger Hodgson* Copyright© Universal Music Publishing Group)

Fighting Global Warming Could Cost $570 Trillion Experts Say

                  According to a new paper submitted by James Hansen, a former senior NASA climate scientist, and 11 other ‘experts,’ the 2016 temperature is likely to be 1.25°C above pre-industrial times, following a warming trend where the world has heated up at the staggering rate of 0.18°C per decade over the past 45 years. And, according to an article in the touting the paper, Hansen and friends state that: “This rate of warming is bringing Earth in line with temperatures last seen in the Eemian period, an interglacial era ending 115,000 years ago when there was much less ice and the sea level was 6-9 meters (20-30 ft.) higher than today.”
                There was much less ice then, and the sea level was dramatically higher? When there were no cities or factories? Have they considered the fact that we are in an interglacial era now? Am I missing something?
                The paper states that the effort to significantly reduce the atmospheric levels of CO2- or greenhouse gasses- that scientists believe are causing global warming, will require “daunting technological advances that will cost the coming generations hundreds of trillions of dollars.” Hansen and Company believe that in order to meet targets set at last year’s Paris climate accord to avoid runaway climate change, “massive CO2 extraction” costing $104 trillion to $570 trillion will be required over the next one hundred years with “large risks and uncertain feasibility” as to its success. No cost-benefit analysis needed though, experts say we have to do this!
                The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recently claimed that, due to man-made greenhouse gasses, carbon dioxide levels will not drop below 400 ppm in our lifetimes, the highest concentration of CO2 since the Pliocene Era three million years ago. There weren’t any human beings on the bleeping planet then, guys! The article noted that sea levels at this time were around 65 feet higher than they are today, and trees were able to grow near the North Pole due to warmer weather and the consequent lack of ice. That’s called Earth-made climate change or God-made climate change. Trees grew near the North Pole then, and glaciers came down across Canada and into what’s now the northern and central region of the United States tens of thousands of years ago. We didn’t cause either of these things, nor could we have done a damn thing about them. Sometimes you just have to move.
                The paper was submitted to the Earth System Dynamics Journal (order your subscription now, operators are standing by!), has yet to be peer reviewed, and was launched in support of a legal case filed by millenials against the U.S. government. Hansen and his granddaughter are parties to the legal challenge asserting that the government has violated young people’s right to life, liberty and property. (Well, maybe not yet, but it certainly, demonstrably will when it attempts to take $570 trillion from them)
                The perfectly objective Hansen wants the courts to step in to force (elected) governments to act more aggressively on climate change, because he says they are largely free of the corrupting influence of special interests. (Apparently, he is unaware of the existence of Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsberg). Hansen wants a global tax to be slapped on carbon emissions and believes that fossil fuel companies should be forced (there’s that word again) to pay for emissions ‘extraction.’
                Penn State University’s Michael Mann, a prominent climatologist in his own right, called Hansen’s paper “interesting,” but said it tackles a huge range of topics and is unconventional in its use as a tool to support a legal case. Mann should know, as a couple of years ago he sued the brilliant writer/political observer Mark Steyn for daring to question Mann’s own “hockey stick” graph depicting his belief in a future featuring rapidly accelerating global warming.
                Invariably, when experts or government types produce an estimate of how much something will cost, it turns out to be way low. But let’s stay with the figure(s) of $104 trillion to $570 trillion in a desperate attempt to slow global warming. Who the hell will pay for this? With a strong chance the effort won’t even work?! I don’t know about you, but I’m upset if buy a $15 c.d. that doesn’t play correctly. $570 trillion??!!!
                I decided to find out how much money the United States of America currently has in circulation. The total number of dollars that exist…everywhere and anywhere. My research produced the answer: $1.2 trillion. That’s right, to potentially address this problem, it will take hundreds of times more dollars than are currently in existence.
                Next, I found the GDP for the entire planet. The total value- in dollars- of all the goods and services produced around the world in a year. Care to guess? $73.43 trillion in 2015. That’s right, we may need seven or eight times the world’s cumulative wealth to try to address a problem that has occurred at least once when we weren’t even around. We certainly won’t be around- in any viable form-  if we attempt to spend $570 trillion while we force our energy producers out of business!
                I suggest everyone start looking under their couch cushions!
                Maybe we could have a giant bake sale? A lengthy telethon? Where is Jerry Lewis when you need him?
                My kids are in band. Their school coerces them into selling chocolate every year to raise money for…whatever they use it for. (This is over and above the astronomical taxes and tuition we pay, the referendums that always pass, and the thousands it costs us to let them go on their band trips). This year one of them raised over $300! What if we implemented a world-wide chocolate sale?
                Would we run out of chocolate or money first?
                We’ve already run out of sanity.

Hillary "Hates Everyday Americans"

            Orwell's 1984 is now here.
We now know that Hillary Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta and a former Clinton administration official named Bill Ivey recently exchanged emails emphasizing the need to maintain political power by producing "an unaware and compliant citizenry."
That is deeply chilling, yet only an unaware and compliant citizenry would not realize that  leftists around the world have been desperately attempting to create unaware and compliant citizens for decades. As the emails admit, that is the only way they can maintain and enhance their own power, which is the only thing they truly care about.
  When leftists are out of power they demand "fundamental change/transformation." When they are in power, the status quo is quite okay, thank you.
Hillary's own campaign manager makes it clear in a different email that he knows Hillary "has begun to hate everyday Americans." It is quite amusing to claim that you are running to help everyday Americans, when in fact you disdain and despise them.
Yet another email contained Hillary's own admission, made during a speech to Goldman Sachs, that she is "far removed" from the middle class.
Will everyday Americans be more offended and outraged by private citizen Donald Trump's lewd comments on tape from 11 years ago, or by the former Secretary of State's own admission that she is "far removed" from them and- literally- hates them?
When the vote totals are finalized this November and we see how many were cast for Hillary Clinton, we will know how many unaware and compliant citizens showed up at the polls.
