Students At Cornell University Pass Tampon Referendum

                 Students at Cornell University recently passed a referendum (that they sponsored) to provide free tampons and maxi-pads in all campus bathrooms, men’s and women’s. 3,034 of the young intellectuals voted, with an overwhelming 78.6% in favor of “free” (formerly) feminine hygiene products. The “#FreetheTampon” initiative would provide all bathrooms with free menstrual products year-round.
                Brown University has already implemented a similar program, so perhaps the Ivy League schools are going in alphabetical order. I’m guessing Dartmouth will soon be voting on its own referendumb.
                The new “wisdom” on campus is that not all people who menstruate are women.  Come again? Call me a skeptic, but I can’t think of a more clearly distinguishing characteristic. Not all women menstruate, but everyone who menstruates is- by definition- a female. Some women don’t look like women, and I know some are firefighters or box professionally, but if we can’t agree on the menstruation thing, this truly is a country divided. And demented. (A corollary: all those getting abortions are women, too. Sorry to be such a purveyor of traditional understanding, skepticism and non-inclusiveness!).
                Many of the cruel and non-inclusive students who voted against the measure expressed concern over the financial burden the initiative would create and the almost certain waste of the products supplied to the men’s rooms, as less than one percent of the population is transgender, with far fewer than that being “males” who menstruate. Many students posted comments on the Cornell Assemblies Elections page.
                Some students said that they’d be okay with supplying the women’s bathroom with the free gynecological goodies, but not the men’s rooms. Sadly, they are missing the point of the endeavor.
                One student reasoned, “In any situation in which a discussion is being had about a given institution providing some good or service for free, it is essential to first be able to estimate the cost of such a provision prior to implementing it.” Calvinist tightwad.
                Another stated: “Having the school subsidize more products leads to an increasing cost for the students to attend…where does the subsidizing stop?” A third remarked, “The school shouldn’t provide other services that aren’t directly relevant or necessary for education.” Where has that clown been in recent years?
                Many of those who voted “yes” said things along the lines of, “this is a basic human right, like water or shelter,” and that it’s “ridiculous” and “insane” that they aren’t free already. Insane, you say? I don’t know many people who don’t pay- a lot- for their shelter, and I myself just spent $1.75 for a bottle of Aquafina!
                The issue was to be presented to the school’s president for potential implementation.
                I’ll close with yet another student’s comment on the proposal, this one succinct and to-the-point: “Seems expensive and unnecessary.”
                That it is, my friend, that it is. But who’ll stop the bleeding?

                P.S.: “Go red big!” Oops, I mean, “Go Big Red!”

Trump Team To Demand Recounts, Too?

                 If Team Hillary is allowed to proceed with recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan, states she lost by as many as 70,000 votes (Pennsylvania), then surely Team Trump should be green-lighted, if necessary, for recounts in Rhode Island, New Mexico, Delaware, Minnesota, Nevada, Maine and New Hampshire. After all, Trump lost Rhode Island by 70,000 votes, New Mexico by 55,000, Delaware by 50,000, Minnesota by 44,000, Nevada by 25,000, Maine by 20,000 and New Hampshire by only 3,000! Don’t they owe it to the huge numbers of Trump voters in those states? Isn’t it “a fundamental principle of our democracy to ensure that every vote is properly counted?” Is it not “important, on principle,” for the Trump Team to take part in and monitor the process? Or do those sentiments just apply to Clinton?
                And, in Trump’s case, we know that some dead people and illegal aliens were able to cast ballots for Hillary, while the American government itself is on record stating that there was no evidence of substantive hacking or outside interference in the election, as Democrats were worried about.
                So what if these recounts delay the “final” election results for weeks, promote the idea that Trump isn’t a “legitimate” President, encourage more rioting in the streets, and further tarnish the image of the United States abroad?
                Wasn’t it just a few days ago that Hillary told her supporters that they must accept Donald Trump as president, stating “We owe him an open mind and a chance to lead,” while acknowledging that the country was even more divided than she had realized?
                I truly am saddened when it turns out- as it almost always does- that I should be even more skeptical of politician’s statements than I already am. This was just one more Clinton lie, one that will fan the flames of hatred and anarchy, further dividing the nation.
                Instead of helping to heal the nation as her concession remarks would suggest she intended, she has decided to screw it…one more time.

Ohio State University Suffers Terror? Attack

                 Was he a knife-wielding carman or a car-wielding knifeman? You can be sure the media won’t use either of those terms in reference to the Somali refugee who perpetrated the terrorist attack at Ohio State University earlier today. No, only guns get that treatment. Ironically, as usual, it was a firearm that put an end to this attack, almost certainly saving innocent lives and preventing many more injuries. Rest assured that that little fact won’t be mentioned by the media, either. Oh, and don’t expect to hear strident calls for automobiles and knives to be banned.
                Officials are also mightily puzzled at Abdul Razak Ali Artan’s motive for running over people in his car prior to getting out and randomly stabbing folks with a butcher knife. (Eleven people were injured, at least one critically). This despite the fact that Ali Artan, a student at Ohio State, posted a rant on his Facebook page shortly before carrying out the heinous attack stating that he had reached a “boiling point,” and making a reference to “lone wolf attacks.” Moreover, he cited radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki. I’d be stymied too.
                Except that in his rant he also said: “America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially Muslim Ummah. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that.” This, of course, caused investigators to be even more buffaloed as to Ali Artan’s possible motive. By all accounts, they are now earnestly trying to determine whether Ali Artan had “personal problems” or if there was “something else that might have pushed him over the edge.”
                Like the lack of Muslim prayer facilities he was frequently complaining about. Don’t want to rush to judgment though! Authorities vehemently state that they aren’t yet certain if this attack was terror-related.
                I’m betting he was just upset that the Buckeyes didn’t cover the spread against hated rival Michigan on Saturday.

Jill Stein Demands A Recount

                 “It’s not over ‘til the fat lady sings,” the old saying goes. Apparently, it’s not over even then, at least if you are of a progressive bent…and your side lost. Even if you lost 306-232.
                Good totalitarians that they are, Jill Stein and the Clinton campaign may be teaming up to launch and oversee vote recounts in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Oddly enough, the recount drive is being led by the Green Party’s Stein, who finished with less than one percent of the overall vote total. This raises an obvious question: why? Well, for starters, Stein’s website claims that she has already raised over $5.7 million for her recount effort, with an ultimate goal of $7 million. Considering the fact that she’s unlikely to be able to proceed with all three recounts, and that she may not be able to spend all of that cash in any case, this is potentially a scam of Clintonesque proportions. No wonder why they call it the Green Party!
                 Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias- via a post on the blogging website said that if the recounts occur, the Clinton campaign “will participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides.”
                Yes. Quite.
                Ensuring that political processes proceed in a manner that is fair to all sides has been a hallmark of all Clinton endeavors. It’s easier to mask the giggles online than in person, I guess.
                 We have seen riots in the streets. Electoral College members in several states have received numerous death threats in an attempt to turn their votes from Trump to Hillary. Colleges have cancelled classes. Rage Rooms across the country are doing land-office business. And now we may be facing the specter of multiple recounts. How many times was Trump asked by the mainstream media if he would accept the election results? Well, these temper-tantrum throwing would-be tyrants clearly will not accept the results of any election they didn’t win.
                Trump’s senior advisor, Kellyanne Conway, stated: “Rather than adhere to the tradition of graciously conceding and wishing the winner well, they’ve opted to waste millions of dollars and dismiss the democratic process.” Kellyanne, the Democrats don’t have a tradition of graciously conceding and wishing the winner well…if the democratic process doesn’t lead to a Democrat winner.
                Elias himself added that he doesn’t expect the potential recounts to overturn Trump’s election, but that it was “important, on principle, to ensure our campaign is legally represented in any court proceedings and represented on the ground in order to monitor the recount process itself. We do so fully aware that the number of votes separating Donald trump and Hillary Clinton in the closest of these states—Michigan—well exceeds the largest margin ever overcome in a recount.” (A combined margin of 107,000 votes separated the candidates in those three battleground states).
                A senior administration official stated that the government didn’t observe any unusual, malicious cyber activity on Election Day and believes the elections were free and fair in that regard. The Democratic Campaign Machine didn’t initiate any recounts on its own, because it hadn’t found any “actionable evidence” of tampering or chicanery. (Of course, it was only looking in one direction).
                Yet, in steps a surrogate. Coincidence?

                This strangest of elections just keeps getting weirder.

City Renames Good Friday "Spring Holiday"

                 In order to “better reflect cultural sensitivity in the workplace,” the mayor of Bloomington, Indiana is changing the names of the Columbus Day and Good Friday holidays. Mayor Josh Hamilton recently announced- via a memo to city employees (who get paid time off for both holidays)- that Columbus Day would now be designated “Fall Holiday,” while Good Friday will henceforth be known as “Spring Holiday.” Hopefully that is generic enough for the tolerant ones. If not, the mayor will have to re-rename them “holidays,” or perhaps just “days.”
                Oddly enough, no one ever clamors for renaming non-Christian holidays such as Muslim’s Ramadan, Hajj, or Eid al-Adha.
                Anyway, the good mayor blathered on: “We are terrifically proud of our diverse workforce at the city. That diversity makes us stronger and more representative of the public we proudly serve. These updated names for two days of well-merited time off is another way we can demonstrate our commitment to inclusivity.” Well, except to Italians and Christians.
                And, as for “well-merited time off,” no one can deny that you guys in the city’s government bust your butt for 32-40 hours a week debating how best to increase the taxing, spending and regulatory burdens on your citizens. That said, Columbus did discover America, which soon thereafter led to amazing levels of freedom and prosperity for millions around the world. And God so loved the world that He gave his only son to us, a son who, no matter what you choose to acknowledge, was crucified on Good Friday…not Spring Holiday. These, to me, seem like feats deserving of “well-merited time off.”
                As Katherine Timpf of National Review Online stated, “Calling Good Friday ‘Good Friday’ isn’t forcing anyone to change his or her beliefs. It’s not offensive or controversial; it’s just calling something what it’s called. The fact is, people have the Friday before Easter off because it is a religious holiday for Christians—and no matter what you name it in city memos, that will still be true. Calling Good Friday ‘Spring Holiday’ isn’t being sensitive…it’s being inaccurate. And if you don’t celebrate it, then so what?”

                And, as Todd Starnes of Fox News says, “Whenever you hear a liberal talking about cultural diversity and sensitivity, it normally means something insensitive is about to happen to Christians.”

Trump Trumps Trump?

                                                    Trump Trumps Trump?

                Already, President-elect Donald Trump has backed away from several of his earlier positions on key issues, positions which won him the election. He has reneged on his promise to prosecute Hillary. He is softening his stance on climate change whackos and may be getting a bit weak-kneed about repealing Obamacare. Apparently, it isn’t just politicians that lie to get elected.
                This is why government moves inexorably to the left. Once in government, or even just in its on-deck circle, the rookie politician/leader of the free world is continually bombarded by leftist special interest groups, politicians, power brokers, PACs, celebrities, media types, world bodies, money-men, influence-peddlers, and assorted other cranks and poke-noses, who insist said politician/leader of the free world do something about this issue and promise to give something to this group. The pressure to look compassionate and tolerant and welcoming is overwhelming- indeed unbearable to almost everyone put in that situation, regardless of their beliefs. After all, while conservatism demonstrably does the most to elevate society, it is a very hard sell unless one has conviction, remarkable strength of character, and superb communication skills. And patience.
                Moreover, with the rapid demographic changes upon us, it may well soon be impossible for a conservative to win the popular vote nationally- and locally in many areas.
                I still have hope that Trump will do the right thing on many issues, and am certain that he will be a much better president than Hillary would’ve been. He’s made a few good cabinet choices and has a few key ones left.
                If, however, he ends up touting Rosie O’Donnell or Keith Ellison for elevation to the Supreme Court, I will get nervous. If he recommends he himself be prosecuted for foundation irregularities, he will have done a complete one-eighty.
                Trump was elected because we are on the brink of a misguided, insurmountable transformation.

                We can’t afford to “Make America Wait Again.”

Trump Supporters Under Seige

                Those of us who had the chutzpah and bad judgment to vote for Donald Trump are constantly in danger of being the victims of slander, verbal attacks…or worse. From simple, yet unhinged- usually poorly worded and often profane- Twitter and Facebook diatribes, to incredulous comments from friends, family, coworkers and the like, many of us have experienced real intolerance on a breathtaking scale.
                There have been calls to boycott the New Balance shoe company because one of its officials said that Donald Trump would be better than Hillary Clinton on trade issues. The company’s athletic shoes have been publicly burned.
                The CEO of Grubhub, an online food delivery service, ranted against Trump in an email sent to his 1,400 employees last week: “While demeaning, insulting and ridiculing minorities, immigrants and the physically/mentally disabled worked for Mr. Trump, I want to be clear that his behavior-and these views, have no place at Grubhub. Had he worked here, many of his comments would have resulted in his immediate termination.”
                He added: “If you do not agree with this statement then please reply to this email with your resignation because you have no place here.”
                Incredibly, the CEO, budding totalitarian tyrant Matt Maloney, later claimed that his comments had been misconstrued. He tried to claim that he was simply trying to foster an environment of support and inclusiveness. In a blog post a day after his original email he stated: “The message was intended to advocate for inclusion and tolerance-regardless of political affiliation-during this time of transition for our country.”
                Tolerance of what? Inclusion of whom?
                In a tweet-subsequently deleted- Maloney added: “To be clear, Grubhub does not tolerate hate and we are proud of all our employees-even those who voted for Trump.” (Emphasis mine).
                Did many CEOs send out emails to their employees stating that they “won’t tolerate lying, corruption, cover-ups, and the total disregard of privacy and confidentiality standards?” Were there many- after this election or those past- who later stated that they “were proud of all their employees-even those who voted for Clinton/Carter/Kennedy/LBJ/Wilson/Jackson,” etc.? In theory, the U.S. is still a democratic republic, right?

                Ironically for you, CEO Maloney, you-and those like you- are the reason so many did vote for Trump.

                Thanksgiving is a special time for Americans. Most of us have the day off. In fact, most of us enjoy a four day weekend. Therefore, many make their way “home,” wherever that is, and however far away from it they may have found themselves. Most of us gather in our living rooms and around the dining room table for a feast of family, food and football. And for a rapidly dwindling- but still significant- percentage of us…faith.
                To be sure, cultures around the world, and since time immemorial, have felt the need to express their gratitude for the good things in their lives, for the blessings they’ve received. Canada, the Netherlands, Japan- and several other nations- have a day set aside for similar observation and reflection.
                This is my third annual Thanksgiving Day post on this site, and I thought I would do something…say something… a little different this year.  I am going to highlight another nation’s Thanksgiving tradition.
                Grenada is a small island in the Atlantic Ocean, in the West Indies to be precise. Their version of the holiday doesn’t have anything to do with celebrating the autumn harvest. In fact, they didn’t observe an official day of Thanksgiving until 1983, 362 years after the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians first got together at Plymouth, Massachusetts. Yet the island nation wouldn’t be celebrating a Thanksgiving if it weren’t for the United States. You see, on October 25th of each year, it holds formal ceremonies of remembrance in honor of the 1983 U.S. military invasion which saved civilian lives, restored order, and led to a return of parliamentary democracy. (Communist guerrillas had staged a coup in 1979, taking control of government and suspending the constitution, leading to four years of revolutionary rule. On October 12th, 1983, communist leader Maurice Bishop was imprisoned, throwing the country into chaos. American students, among others, were in dire peril- leading the U.S. to take action).
                American soldiers who were stationed in Grenada in November told locals about their upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. They talked about the traditional feast and emphasized that the intent of the day was to focus on gratitude. Displaying their own gratitude, the people of Grenada worked secretly and hard, and surprised the soldiers with meals similar to those they yearned for, complete with turkey and fixings.

                I don’t know how those who serve can do so anymore. To those in the military under orders not to fire unless fired upon- not a viable ‘strategy’ for staying alive let alone defeating the enemy- and to those police officers who are damned if they do and damned if they don’t in fighting crime, I say: “Thank you.”
                And to all my readers around the world, whether you observe the day or not: Happy Thanksgiving!

College Campuses Coddling Kids After "The Donald" Trumped Hillary

                 Colleges used to be tasked with preparing their students for adulthood and steeling them for the ‘real world.’ Exposing students to various ideas and thought was deemed of primary importance so that they would be versed enough to legitimately form their own opinions and outlook. Debate and rhetoric were the order of the day- indeed part of the core curriculum.
                Today? Not so much.
                Donald Trump may have shocked the world with his victory in the American presidential election, but it is certain that his success sent vast numbers of college students and professors into deranged hysterics. How did these stately old institutions of higher learning handle their charges mental and emotional breakdowns? They capitulated- and coddled the craven and cowering class. They didn’t just tolerate the tantrums of those stunned, repulsed, and frightened by exposure to views other their own, they helped them in their transition back to…kindergarten.
                The University of Michigan actually provided its traumatized tykes with coloring books and Play-Doh in an attempt to calm them. The University of Kansas has therapy dogs standing by for those unglued by Trump’s triumph. Tufts University offered arts and crafts sessions to its devastated kiddies.  Cornell University, an Ivy League school founded in 1865, held a campus-wide “cry-in,” with school officials handing out hot chocolate and facial tissues. They should be handing out the Kleenex to the parents of the college’s young scholars, since many are shelling out most or all of the $31,000-$54,000 a year that it costs to have their offspring attend this pricey pre-school!
                At campuses around the nation, professors canceled classes and/or exams, either because students asked them to do so or because they were too distraught to teach. When classes resume they can throw their hands up in the air with their students and say, “So big…you are sooo big!”
                What would I say to the delicate debutantes and fragile frat-boys?

                “The wheels on the bus are falling off
                Falling off
                Falling off
                The wheels on the bus are falling off
                And you guys are clowns!”

The University Of Virginia Finds Its Founder Feckless

                The University of Virginia is awash in controversy. The President of the school, which was founded by Thomas Jefferson in 1819, has come under attack for quoting Jefferson in a post-election email of November 9th. Teresa Sullivan had the audacity (of hope?) to urge students to unite in the wake of the election. She further irritated many young scholars and faculty members by stating that University students have the responsibility of creating the future they want for themselves. Apostasy!
                The included (but apparently not inclusive) quote was a description of (early) University of Virginia students by the school’s stupefyingly gifted founder. Jefferson wrote to a friend saying University of Virginia students “are not of ordinary significance only: they are exactly the persons who are to succeed to the government of our country, and to rule its future enmities, its friendships and fortunes.” President Sullivan had the unabashed temerity to add: “I encourage today’s U Va. Students to embrace that responsibility.” 469 professors and students- who would apparently rather embrace their ‘ordinary significance’- signed a letter demanding that she refrain from quoting Jefferson because he owned slaves.
                 “We would like for our administration to understand that although some members of this community may have come to this university because of Thomas Jefferson's legacy, others of us came here in spite of it,” the letter read. “For many of us, the inclusion of Jefferson quotations in these e-mails undermines the message of unity, equality and civility that you are attempting to convey.” The letter was drafted by Assistant Psychology Professor Noelle Hurd (there’s a shock!), and was signed by other psychology professors, professors of politics (imagine that!), Women, Gender and Sexuality Professor Corinne Field (knock me over with a feather!), and Assistant Dean Shilpa DavĂ©.
                        Hurd said via an email statement that the intention of the letter “was to start a conversation with our administration regarding ways to be more inclusive. In the current climate, we must seize every opportunity to communicate that this university welcomes individuals from all backgrounds.”
                There are students and faculty of all races, ethnicities, nationalities, religions, sexual orientations, and genders on campus. There are, however, several things that these students and faculty refuse to be inclusive of: Jefferson quotes, an open commitment to excellence, and differing opinions.
                Perturbed Politics Professor Lawrie Balfour exclaimed:  “I’ve been here 15 years. Again and again, I have found that at moments when the community needs reassurance and Jefferson appears, it undoes I think the really important work that administrators and others are trying to do.” So, Lawrie, the former Secretary of State, Vice-President, President of the United States of America, U.S. Minister to France, purchaser of the Louisiana Territory (doubling the size of his nation), drafter of the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, author of the Declaration of Independence, abolisher of the slave trade, and founder of the very school you are blessed to bloviate at… undoes the really important work that current university administrators such as yourself do? You can’t make this up! That is bureaucratic hubris on a herculean scale, comparative valuation gone satanically awry, and self-importance run comically amok. (Please reread the first two sentences of this paragraph and let the preposterous remark of the disturbed professor truly sink in).
                For her part, Hurd said she believes the University should consider ways to better express inclusion. “I drafted the e-mail because when Jefferson was referenced in emails related to the election, it communicated to me a message of exclusion,” Hurd said.
                Hurd drafted the letter/email admonishing Teresa Sullivan.  Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence. Equality and inclusiveness? Thomas Jefferson stood astride a world that had only known monarchy and totalitarianism. He saw and wrote- and rose up to proclaim- that “All men are created equal, and are endowed by their creators with certain inalienable rights…” With this foundational belief, he and his fellow Founders changed the world. It isn’t possible to be more inclusive than to believe all men are created equal, and are endowed by their creator with inalienable rights. This means that every human being is equal in the eyes of God, and has been divinely granted rights that no other human being or government has the right to take away. Again, it simply isn’t possible to be more inclusive- and protective of that inclusivity- then Jefferson was. But facts and reason never stopped a progressive from launching vicious, idiotic attacks on those who have any desire for excellence or any standards of decency… whatsoever.
                Teresa Sullivan responded to the attack on her judgment and character by affirming her support for students and faculty to express their opinions. She said that quoting someone simply recognizes “the potency of that person’s words” and that she agrees with Jefferson’s message of University students helping to lead the country.
                “Quoting Jefferson (or any historical figure) does not imply an endorsement of all the social structures and beliefs of his time,” she said. Good for her. That should be blatantly obvious to all. That it isn’t… is a sad commentary on the times in which we live.
                That I may quote FDR from time to time doesn’t necessarily mean I’m fond of court-packing or big government…or the internment of Japanese-Americans. In similar fashion, if I quote a figure from the 1970’s, it doesn’t mean I approve of orange shag carpets, mismatched apparel, or long gas lines.

West Coast To Secede From The United States?

                 There is now some talk of secession among Left-Coasters. Yes, there are some in California, Oregon, Washington, and Nevada who are so upset with Donald Trump winning the presidential election that they would like to divorce them-selves from the United States and shack up with Canada.
                Personally, I hope they succeed in their desire to secede.  (They won’t).
                We Americans will keep the land, though. There’s stuff there that they haven’t made use of that could come in handy for us. Like extractable energy. All the abashed progressives in those states should be allowed- indeed encouraged- to head to Canada…if the Great White North will have them. Maybe the Canucks could institute a massive “Adopt-a-Lib” program.
                One stipulation, however: When Canadians sober up and elect a conservative (ala’ Stephen Harper) to fix everything Trudeau is screwing up, these erstwhile Americans can’t come back to America. There will be no unseceding! Oh, and you folks take all your illegal immigrants with you, please. We’ll keep those immigrants who observed the law on the way into our country. Surely a Trudeau-led Canada is rife with potential sanctuary cities.
                Certain internet types are referring to this Western whim as a potential “Calexit.” A more fitting term, given (southern) California’s well-deserved reputation, would be “Cexit” with a soft ‘C’ as in cessation or ceremony. Perhaps the secessionists can succeed in making VanCouver the new Van Nuys.
                I have my own term for this possible geopolitical game-changer: “CLOWNexit.” (California, Oregon, Washington, and Nevada). If this fanciful future flight should take place (and it really should!), conservatives from around the nation could soon thereafter filter into the Land of Milk and Honey, backfilling key areas population-wise, and ensuring a conservative-friendly electorate for years to come.

                CLOWNexit: Let’s Make Some Blue States Red!

Georgia Orders Pastor To Turn Over His Sermons

                 Georgia’s attorney general has ordered Dr. Eric Walsh, a Seventh-day Adventist lay minister, to relinquish his “sermon notes and/or transcripts” to the government. Walsh was hired as a District Health Director by the Georgia Department of Public Health back in May of 2014. One week later, a government official asked him to submit copies of his sermons for review. At the time, he complied with the request. Two days later he was fired.
                According to Fox News, his attorneys say the government was “curious” about sermons Dr. Walsh delivered on health, marriage, sexuality, world religions, science and creationism. Dr. Walsh, who is black, also preached about Biblical views on homosexuality.
                He has since filed a federal lawsuit charging Georgia state officials with religious discrimination, and says that he will not comply with the request.
                “Please produce a copy of your sermon notes and/or transcripts,” Attorney General Samuel Olens said in a letter to attorneys representing the minister.
                Walsh reacted to the directive by exclaiming: “No government has the right to require a pastor to turn over his sermons. I cannot and will not give up my sermons unless I am forced to do so.”
                “He was fired for something he said in a sermon,” Walsh attorney Jeremy Dys told the Fox News network’s Todd Starnes. “If the government is allowed to fire someone over what he said in his sermons, they can come after any of us for our beliefs on anything.” Dys said the government’s “request,” in actuality, carries the same force of law as a subpoena. He further stated: “I think it is wrong for a state to demand that a pastor turn over his sermons at any time. It was wrong for the state to ask Dr. Walsh for his sermons as part of the job application and hiring process. It was wrong for them to turn around and fire him when they listened to those sermons. And it is wrong now for them to demand that he turn over all the sermons and sermon notes he ever produced going back to when he was 18 years old.”
                This is not the first time Pastor Walsh has been the victim of intense anti-Christian discrimination. He was invited to deliver Pasadena [California] City College’s 2014 commencement address. At the time, he was the director of that city’s public health department. LGBT activists- and students- came unglued after someone found online copies of his sermons. He decided against delivering the commencement address, but that didn’t mollify his (tolerant and inclusive!) critics, of course, and he was forced to resign his post. Soon afterwards, he applied for the position in Georgia.
                Family Research Council president Tony Perkins called the state’s demand “an alarming display of government intrusion into the sanctity of the church, pastor’s study and pulpit. This is something that I would have expected to see in a communist country, not America,” Perkins told Starnes. “Government scrutiny of speech in the pulpit is unconstitutional and unconscionable.”
                Emir Caner, president of Georgia’s Truett-McConnell University, said: “A new era has come to our shores, a time where government finds it acceptable to suppress the freedom of religion even to the extent of requesting a minister’s sermons. As an ordained minister, I know that this is not merely an assault on the messenger, but on the very message of our Sacred Scriptures.” Caner also noted that the government seems to target biblical Christianity exclusively. “What the government fails to recognize is that ministers of the Gospel are not hirelings of the state, but ambassadors for our Lord,” he proclaimed.
                Oddly enough, no government entity ever requested copies of Pastor Jeremiah Wright’s “God Damn America” sermons, nor does the government have the stomach for abridging any American-based Imam’s freedom of speech.
                The Georgia attorney general could ask a judge to enforce the state’s request. In that case, if Pastor Walsh still refused to comply, he could face contempt of court charges.

                More and more frequently in the West, quoting, referencing…or living out biblical principles…is considered a crime by- and against- the state. This religious intolerance was anathema to the Founders, and is a hallmark of totalitarianism. If not soon- and successfully- challenged here, all of those who died in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World Wars I and II- and all of America’s other conflicts- will have their sacrifices ultimately- and perhaps permanently- dishonored.

Ecosexual Movement Gaining Ground

                If you were lucky enough to have found yourself in Sydney, Australia, a week or two ago, you would’ve had the unique opportunity to have sex with the earth. If you missed your chance, try not to kick yourself, there will be ample opportunities in the near future.
                According to, the Sydney LiveWorks Festival of experimental art featured the “eco-sexual bathhouse,” an interactive installation created by two artists who described the work as a “no-holds-barred extravaganza meant to dissolve the barriers between species as we descend into oblivion” as the result of our global environmental crisis.
                Well, then.
                The artists see their piece as part of a growing eco-sexual movement, which, they claim, is inexorably gaining momentum around the planet. According to the piece, Jennifer Reed, a PhD candidate in sociology at the University of Nevada- Las Vegas (UNLV) claims that the number of people who identify as eco-sexuals has increased dramatically in the past two years. Google search data apparently confirms that interest in the term has particularly spiked over the past year.
                Amanda Morgan, a faculty member at the UNLV School of Community Health Sciences, is involved in the eco-sexual movement as well (what is it with UNLV types?). She states that eco-sexuality pitches a big tent, encompassing those relative conservatives who simply use sustainable sex products, and enjoy skinny-dipping and naked hiking (who doesn’t?), all the way through to those “people who roll around in the dirt having an orgasm covered in potting soil. There are people who f**k trees, or masturbate under a waterfall.”
                Thanks for that report.
                Annie Sprinkle (!) and Elizabeth Stevens are a Bay Area couple, activists, and performance artists, who have made the movement a personal crusade, going so far as to publish an “ecosex manifesto,” constructing a website and producing films such as the documentary, Goodbye Gauley Mountain: An Ecosexual Love Story. The film, which I believe was up for several Oscars and best picture, depicts the “pollen-amorous” (get it?) relationship between them and the Appalachian Mountains. Alrighty then.
                The couple have also been involved with a theater piece touring the country: Dirty Sexecology: 25 Ways to Make Love to the Earth. (Wait ‘til you see #17!). They have also officiated wedding ceremonies where fellow eco-sexuals marry the earth, the moon, and various other natural entities. (I once got engaged to Halley’s Comet, but we didn’t see each other often enough to make it work, and she was way too “fast” for my liking, brazenly and indiscriminately exploring other heavenly bodies).
                Sprinkle and Stephens (sounds like a law firm) attended last year’s San Francisco Pride Parade, leading a contingent of eco-sexuals in a “ribbon-cutting ceremony” to “officially” add an E to the LGBTQI acronym. At this rate, the ever-expanding kinky-sex acronym will soon have to be recognized as the longest word in the English language, overtaking antidisestablishmentarianism. Probably by 2025.
                There are those who think eco-sexuals will become mainstream in the very near future.
                Stephens says that their aim is to re-conceptualize the way we look at the earth, from seeing it as a mother to viewing it as a lover, as this is the first step towards taking the environmental crisis seriously. After all, some in the movement say, “If you piss off your mother, she’s probably going to forgive you. If you treat your lover badly, she’s going to break up with you.” Moreover, adherents say, “If you’re running from floods, you won’t have any time for sex.”
                Stephens believes there are now at least 100,000 people around the world who openly identify as eco-sexuals. Keep “dissolving those barriers between the species,” noble civil rights warriors! Want to bang a mountain lion- or a mountain? It’s all good! Want to marry a river otter- or a river? That is your right under marriage equality!

                It will be interesting to see what eco-sexuals demand in terms of bathroom and locker room rights.

Progressives Building A Wall To Keep Out Reason

         Let's cut through the moral posturing and phony compassion continually exhibited by boutique liberals. The reason they are so adamantly opposed to immigration restrictions and controlling our southern border is because they know that the vast majority of folks coming into this country illegally will vote for them. This has  proven to be the case, whether we are talking about Latinos, criminals or Muslim refugees from the Middle East and North Africa.

If 70% of the people coming across the U.S.'s border with Mexico were historically Republican voters, Democrats would have already built an unbroken 50-foot-tall, 10-foot-thick, electrified wall from the Pacific coast to the Gulf coast. There would be a moat running the length of one side and a starving rottweiler every 10 linear feet on the other, while the previously most breach-able border areas would be additionally fortified with a mixture of landmines and boiling tar-pits.

Progressives love to  preen and strut in public, ostentatiously displaying their inclusiveness and tolerance like glitzy feathers in their version of a peacock's dance. They will thrust their pretty morality tail in everyone's face, claiming they are doing it for the most selfless of reasons, when in reality they just want to get laid.

Far from compassionate, progressivism/socialism is just a slightly less metastasized form of the same fatal disease- collectivism/statism/totalitarianism- that has been responsible for the death and misery of hundreds of millions of souls in the past two centuries or so. (Progressives made excuses for both the Third Reich and the Soviet Union, and are still doing so today in the case of Cuba).

Given their track record, progressives simply cannot claim to be both compassionate and sane. The United States is 20 trillion dollars in debt, though our military is in shambles. Since the start of the Great Society in the 1960's, we have spent several trillion dollars on specific programs to end poverty, yet the poverty level is virtually the same as it was at the program's inception. A lower percentage of adults are in the work force than ever before in our history. More and more jobs are part-time only. Wages appear to have permanently stagnated. For the first time in our nation's history, many if not most parents believe their children won't be more successful than they were. College costs are through the roof, yet over half of all college graduates can't find work in their chosen field after leaving school.

Fewer and fewer Americans say that religion is a significant factor in their lives. Studies show that our youth are unhappier and less optimistic than ever before. They are also more spoiled...and jaded. Many don't know the basics of American history and can't pick out Connecticut on a map. Several dangerous diseases that had long since been 100% eradicated in the United States are popping up again. Hundreds of millions of tax-payer dollars go to abort babies.

And now there are riots in our streets and race relations are at their worst since the Civil War.

If that is progress, if that is compassion, if that is the fundamental change you liberal clowns so desperately wanted to bring about, I want no damn more of it!

When Ronald Reagan rescued the U.S. from life-support after the Carter Era, we went from mourning America to "Morning in America." Donald Trump is no Ronald Reagan, but here's hoping he's no LBJ, either.

At this point I'd gladly settle for "Mid-afternoon in America."

The Left, The Pope, And The Donald

               I have been rendered nearly impervious to the increasingly bizarre and satanic state of the world at this point, and am nonplussed by most things, no matter how insane. The featured opinion piece in a recent issue of my hometown newspaper, however, beggars description. The woman who penned the piece was upset with Pope Francis for not being in favor of women’s ordination.
                She states: “I’m sure it derives from his lifetime of training in praying to ‘the Lord.’ Never praying to Her and begging for mercy from Him does severe emotional damage.”  She continues: “Francis and others who assume there's nothing wrong with praying exclusively to 'the Lord' are the most damaged by it."
                This statement perfectly encapsulates the world view- and the unimaginable hubris- of the left. She has mounted Her high horse in order to lecture the rest of the world, as well as the Pope, on proper pronoun usage when addressing ‘the Lord’…and almighty God.
                Not praying to ‘Her’ does severe emotional damage? Praying exclusively to ‘the Lord’ damages those who do so?
                She goes on to aver that “Father and Son are not facts,” and urges us all to “avoid gendered God-talk.” But wait, there’s more! She finishes with the proverbial flourish: “The pope’s closing the door to women’s ordination seems connected to Donald trump’s win. We need to educate pope and president about sexist God-talk and sexist relationships.”
                There it is! That damn severely emotionally damaged pope! He and Trump probably talk and text more than people know! Trump: “Pope Francis, I just want you to know that I like groping women.” Pope Francis: “Donald, I want you to know that I don’t pray to ‘Her,’ I pray exclusively to ‘the Lord.’”
                Which makes liberals ‘think’: “like-minded bastards! All males are chauvinists!”
                You knew that- somehow- leftists would attempt to link the pope’s dismissal of women’s ordination and habit of praying exclusively to ‘the Lord’ with the election of Donald Trump. Why wouldn’t they?  Pope’s have been praying to ‘the Lord’ for millennia, while Trump was elected last Tuesday. I mean, hello! Anybody would make that connection.

                The truth is, ironically and unfortunately, that organized religion has actually become one of the most effective weapons of the progressives, for the same reasons they are winning on every other front. They have infiltrated and subverted most Western religions, bending them to their own secular purposes. They don’t recognize morality. They will do anything-every time- to advance their cause, while the vast majority of conservatives and moderates don't want to make a scene or appear intolerant.

Welcome To The Anti-Trump Orgy!

                 Donald Trump has only been president-elect for one week and he is already backing away from his own promises to crack down on illegal immigration and build a viable wall on the Mexican border. In fact, this story was the lead one in my local paper, front page above-the-fold. This didn’t deter the editors from placing a headline directly below it on that same front page proclaiming: “’Constant fear’ as immigrants brace for life under Trump.”
                Trump’s first three appointees to his transition team were Kellyanne Conway (a woman), Ben Carson (a black man), and tech billionaire Peter Thiel…who is gay. But let’s not let logic, reason or the plain facts get in the way of our anti-Trump orgy! He is sexist, racist and homophobic, and shouting that out to the world arouses us! Keep the vitriol flowing baby…it feels so good! Make the Trumpists tremble before our naked inclusion and overwhelming tolerance! We’re, puff…so, pant, pant…morally superior, aaahhhhhhhhhhgg…to the fascist Republican, that….(oh baby, was it good for you?)… it’s not even funny!

                Anybody got a cigarette?

The Change We Need

                No one has the right to say they “can’t afford” not to spend other people’s money. Period. That is essentially the same as saying “we can’t afford to allow these people to have a car, house, liberty, happiness, etc.” Yet, that is precisely what progressives in government say…and believe.
                In the case of abortion, the mother/couple deciding to abort is really stating: “I/we simply can’t afford to let this baby live, as it would cost me/us too much money, time, or hassle.  The progressive government simply sanctions, protects, and codifies that unnatural “right,” even as it takes away the majority of its other citizen’s natural rights. (And, wanting to use those other people’s money to pay for this, it wishes to subsidize the unnatural "rights" of a few by denying the natural rights of many. Stupefying).
                Life, liberty, property…pursuit of happiness. These fundamental rights are historically what governments believed they had the right to deprive their citizens of, and what- historically and heroically- the American Founder’s bequeathed to us. The Declaration of Independence was an unprecedented proclamation, a clarion call, and a warning to the rest of the world: “Make no mistake, these are Natural Rights, granted by our creator. We will recognize and protect them via a representative republic, the rule of law, and a limited government of, by, and for the people…so help us God.”
                Recently, we have lost our way. Calls to eliminate the Electoral College, and thereby that representative republic, will greatly intensify with the liberals latest loss… to Trump. The rule of law has long been eschewed by the Clintons, and is now under attack by anti-Trump protesters in big cities across the United States. And limited government was exterminated long ago, a victim of both party’s establishment elites. The Democratic Party is openly morphing into a purebred Socialist Party. The Republican Party’s elite clings to Washington like barnacles on a boat’s hull, and runs sniveling, whining and pouting to their safe spaces when any of their precious notions of compliant decorum are challenged by a Donald Trump or a Ted Cruz.
                We have been lured and coerced into traveling far from the formerly self-evident pillars of a successful and stable society. This has been done in the name of progressivism, or as it has recently been known in America, “fundamental change.”
                Soon we may get a chance to see if truth and logic can once again trump ignorance, greed, envy and malice. That is the fundamental change we need.

                Let freedom ring.

President Obama To Pardon Hillary Clinton?

                There has been much discussion of Hillary Clinton being pardoned if she’s ever brought up on charges. Several pundits have pointed out that one of the possible- and legal- scenarios, had she been elected, would’ve been that she actually pardon herself. If you have paid any attention to Hillary’s antics over the years, you know that is exactly what she would have done if given the chance.
                It is possible President Obama will preemptively pardon the former First lady before he leaves office, just to play it safe, and, in his mind at least, further burnish his legacy. If he so chooses, here’s hoping he does it with flair. I’m not sure if he can carry a tune, but I suggest he marry the deed to an old folk song and announce it to the American people thusly:

“I signed her pardon…and I did it in the Rose Garden
Along with the rain there’s gotta be a little sunshine sometime
When you take you gotta give so live and let live and let her go…ho ho ho ho
I signed her pardon…and I did it in the Rose Garden!

                Thank you. Good night…and good bye.”

Trump's Cabinet

                The makeup of Donald trump’s cabinet is not only fodder for speculation, but also a cause for real hope. Rudy Giuliani (“America’s Mayor”) and Chris Christie are likely candidates to be Attorney General and head of Homeland Security, with both potentially being considered for either of the two positions. That’s not a bad start. (Please see my November 6th post, “An Election Unlike Any Other,” where I speculated on a Trump cabinet vs. a Hillary cabinet).
                Ben Carson, a relatively early Trump supporter, may well be considered for Health and Human Services head, or Surgeon General. Newt Gingrich has been rumored to be in the running to become Secretary of State. He would be the most learned and capable State Department leader in many, many moons. John Bolton, one of the smartest and most honest people currently on the planet, is also considered by some to be in the running for Secretary of State. He somehow served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from 2005-2006, without prostrating himself or his country before that bizarrely impotent, incompetent, yet ultimately dangerous body. Going from Hillary Clinton to either Newt Gingrich or John Bolton as State Department head would be like going from having a fourth-string quarterback helm your offense to having Tom Brady under center. Come to think of it, it may actually be like going from having Hillary Clinton as your quarterback to having Tom Brady as your quarterback.
                It appears that Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, former Arizona Senator Jon Kyl and Lt. General Michael Flynn, competent and capable all, are among those being considered for Secretary of Defense.
                Moreover, some conservatives are pushing for Ted Cruz to be an early Trump Supreme Court nominee. If he is nominated, approved and appointed- and that will be an uphill battle, even assuming he is interested- Antonin Scalia’s death will, at least in one sense, be avenged, and the United States truly will be given a chance at a few more years of exceptionalism.
                Other notables being considered for cabinet positions or important positions in a Trump administration include Reince Priebus, who helped steer Trump to victory as head of the Republican National Committee even as others snubbed him (Chief of Staff), Sarah Palin (Interior Secretary), former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty (Treasury Secretary), and Mike Huckabee (Health and Human Services).
                Ironically, if many of those listed here get the jobs, the upcoming Trump cabinet has the chance to be the deepest and most competent since the first Ronald Reagan administration. The country would have an outside chance to truly become great again.
                If the election isn’t stolen from him, and if he is not assassinated by the progressive, pacifist, tolerant leftists/statists currently shouting at us that, “Love Trumps Hate!”

We Were Worried Trump Wouldn't Accept The Election Results?

                 Prior to the election, Hillary supporters and other leftists were stricken with terror over the possibility of Donald Trump not accepting the results of the voting. They consumed themselves with worry that Donald the Bully might not fully embrace the fruits of the democratic process, might not listen to the people, might not properly respect the free will of the majority of the inhabitants of this enlightened republic.
                Well, the process worked, the people have spoken and Trump is the president-elect.
                And tens of thousands of those who just days ago were urging Trump to respect the rule of law are trashing inner cities and lighting the streets on fire in a crazed totalitarian-esque tantrum. Twitter, playground of choice for arrested adolescents and assorted moral misfits, is strewn with uncountable death threats hurled at Mr. Trump.
                Leftists, despite the staggering “gains” and inroads they’ve achieved in their attempt to remake society in recent years, are never satisfied unless they get everything they want, every time, immediately. When they don’t, they throw public hissy fits and break things. They routinely exhibit the very worst of the behavior they claim to believe their opponents capable of.
                 I can tell you with certainty that, had Trump lost, he wouldn’t now be in the streets committing vandalism, throwing things at cops, threatening to kill Hillary, and burning American flags.

                If you are a sentient being observing these protests from near or far, you are seeing- yet again- the rampant hypocrisy, thuggery, and intolerance of those on the left.

Rioters Protest Trump Election

                Gangsters have taken to the streets in many of America’s biggest cities- setting fire to some things and damaging or destroying others- in “protest” of Donald Trump’s presidential victory. In Chicago, a Trump voter was brutally beaten for exercising his right to vote…in the wrong manner. The mobsters have been joined in some cases by luminaries such as Cher and Madonna. (One would think the hooligans would be protesting Madonna, who recently reneged on her promise to orally satisfy Clinton voters such as these).
                The unholy mix of paid demonstrators, socialists, once-and-future felons, and other assorted human debris hung Trump in effigy and burned American flags when they weren’t assaulting Trump voters or hurling things at police…all while a great many of their ilk sported, “Love Trumps Hate” signs. Not a one of them possessed the mental acuity or moral character to discern the tragicomically obvious irony and hypocrisy of the juxtaposition.
                 On top of all this, President-elect Trump has been the victim of hundreds if not thousands of death threats. Apparently hate trumps Trump.
                Oakland, the American anus, has been hit particularly hard by the delinquent thugs. Cities such as Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle and New York have also seen thousands pour into the streets…to set them on fire.
                Anyway, speaking of luminaries, the cruelest blow (I’m not talking about Madonna!) of the post-election madness has been the many Hollywood and mainstream media types (is there a difference?)  who have already reneged on their promises to leave the country if Trump won. I had such high hopes that these gutless fakers, posers and portrayers might actually flee the country. Talk about addition by subtraction! I was going to offer to help them pack. Hell, I might have taken off work and chauffeured the mental midgets to the Canadian border.
                If you don’t recall the rioting, the flaming streets, the flag-burning, and the ubiquitous social media death threats to the president-elect after either Obama election it’s because there weren’t any.
                What does that tell you?

                The entitlement-addled hoodlums in the street are the intolerant ones, the hate-mongers…the real bullies.

Bye, Bye, Ms. American Lie

(Sing to the tune, "American Pie)

A long, long time ago
You can still remember now
How power used to make you smile
You knew if you had your chance
That you could make the others dance
And maybe you’d be happy for awhile

But so many scandals made you shiver
With every paper that got delivered
Bad news on our doorstep
You had to watch your next step

I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about Foster’s widowed bride
But something touched me deep inside
The day Vince Foster died

Bye, bye Ms. American Lie
You and Barry bailed out Chevy but the price sure was high
And them good ole boys drinking whiskey and rye
Singin’ this’ll be a day that she lies
This’ll be a day that she lies

You didn’t write the book of love
And you don’t have faith in God above
Even if the Bible tells you to
You may believe in rock and roll
Though music can’t save your mortal soul
But can you teach me how to lie real slow?

Well, I know you were in love with Vince
Funny, no one’s seen him since
Yeah, he was offed by you
Man, how you took care of the clues!

It was only you Bill wouldn’t f**k
In the Oval Office or a pickup truck
But he knew he was in luck
The day Vince Foster died
And we started singin’

Bye, bye Ms. American Lie
You and Barry bailed out Chevy but the price sure was high
And them good ole boys drinking whiskey and rye
Singin’ this’ll be a day that she lies
This’ll be a day that she lies

Now for eight years we’ve been on our own
We’ve grown lazy- and been overthrown
But that’s not how it used to be

Then the harrasser arrived upon the scene
And a blue dress was no longer clean
The stain didn’t come from you or me

Oh and though things were now looking down
The harasser stowed his horny crown
And the courtroom was adjourned
No binding verdict was returned

And while Obama read a book on Marx
Their assassins practiced in the park
The voters were kept in the dark
The day Vince Foster died
We were singin’

Bye, bye Ms. American Lie
You and Barry bailed out Chevy but the price was sure high
Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye
And singin’ this’ll be a day that she lies
This’ll be a day that she lies

Helter skelter in the summer swelter
Hillary’s carted off to her daughter’s shelter
Pneumonia she’s hiding fast

Everyone was high on grass
As the elitists more laws did pass
The Constitution a remnant of the past

Now liberals quarreled with Brit Hume
While Russia played a martial tune
We all were in a trance
Oh, so we never stood a chance

‘Cause China tried to take the field
Our enemies refused to yield
Our moral decay was revealed
The day Vince Foster died
We started singin’

Bye, bye Ms. American Lie
You and Barry bailed out Chevy but the price was sure high
Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye
And singin’ this’ll be a day that she lies
This’ll be a day that she lies

And here we are all in one place
A generation in disgrace
With no time left to start again

So come on Hill be nimble, Hill be quick
And lie to us ‘til we are sick
‘Cause lies are the devil’s truest friends

My hands were clenched in fists of rage
So many couldn’t tell
You’ve put us all through Hell

And as the moon climbed high that Benghazi night
And you refused to help them fight
I saw Satan laughing with delight
The day our soldiers died
He was singin’

Bye, bye Ms. American Lie
You and Barry bailed out Chevy but the price was sure high
Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye
Singin’ this’ll be a day that she lies
This’ll be a day that she lies

Bill met a girl who sang the blues
And he asked her for some happy news
But she just frowned and turned away

And I simply could take no more
 I’d heard all of this b.s. before
And no one believes it anymore today

And in the streets policemen screamed
Their lovers cried, but liberals creamed
Rebuttals were verboten
Law and order was broken

And the three men you despise the most
The Father, Son and the Holy Ghost
All knew that you would soon be toast
The day Vince Foster died
And they were singing

Bye, bye Ms. American Lie
You and Barry bailed out Chevy but the price was sure high
And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye
Singin’ this’ll be a day that she lies
This’ll be a day that she lies

They were singing
Bye, bye Ms. American Lie
You and Barry bailed out Chevy but the price was sure high
Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye
Singin’ this’ll be a day that she lies

Reporters Trump "The Donald"

                 “Reporters” and “journalists” let Hillary Clinton and Team Herself see questions prior to interviews, and approve of articles before they were posted. They fed moderators scripted questions in an attempt to trip up Trump. They spent inordinate amounts of airtime and column inches excoriating Trump and his supporters over relatively trivial matters while giving Hillary passes on matters vital not just to her character and judgment, but to America’s national security.
                In total, people identified in federal campaign finance filings as journalists, reporters, television news anchors or news editors and others working in journalism, had combined to give $396,000 to American  presidential campaigns as of the end of August, according to a recent analysis by the Center for Public Integrity. Of that sum, $382,000- or 96% of the total donations to that date- went to the Democratic nominee and her Machine. This figure would’ve made Nikita Khrushchev and Yuri Andropov blush.
                Attacking the outsider and  crouching down to lick the jackboots of those in the elitist political oligarchy who have run the government for decades now is behavior quite the opposite from their famously self-aggrandizing oath to “speak truth to power.”
                They are in power now, and they know it.

                If only enough of us would speak the truth to them.

Hillary Aides Upset Muslim Man Was San Bernardino Attacker

                 Upper echelon aides to Hillary Clinton were deeply troubled that a Muslim man was publicly declared the shooter in a 2015 massacre that left 14 people dead in San Bernardino, California. Emails recently released by WikiLeaks show that her team expressed regret that the terrorist wasn’t a white man.
                According to a Fox News report, on December 2nd digital operative Matt Ortega forwarded a tweet from MSNBC host Christopher Hayes, naming one of the shooters in the attack as Sayeed Farook. Consultant Karen Finney then forwarded the email to John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chairman, with the comment, “Damn.”
                Podesta responded: “Better if a guy named Sayeed Farouk [sic] was reporting that a guy named Christopher Hayes was the shooter.” Probably doesn’t matter much to the 14 dead people. But these comments should matter to us. The left, in an effort to solidify its future voting base, attempts to blame everything on that soon-to-be tiny minority, Christian white guys. The fact that this simply bears no resemblance to reality doesn’t keep them from fervently wishing it were so.
                When those in power are so obsessed with retaining and expanding that power, and therefore so beholden to politically correct dogma, so tied to their preconceived notions of what should be, and so averse to telling the truth, it is always a disaster for those not in power.
                Donald trump doesn’t feel he has to be president, may not even really want to be president, which might be what we need right now. Though often clumsily, he does speak truth to the current powers-that-be.

                That is why his message- such as it is- is resonating with a significant section of the American population.

Physical Violence By Hillary Clinton Supporters/Trump Haters Suppressed By Media

                Physical attacks on local Republican offices, Trump supporters- and their personal property- have become even more common in recent days as the election draws nigh and the Clinton Machine and its supporters start to panic over their narrowing lead.
                A number of Trump supporters have been harassed, beaten up and hit with flying objects over the past months. Anti-Trump violence has been a fixture on many campuses. Conservatives on campus have been threatened, hit, or silenced on a routine basis. Not that you’ll see any of this reported on the evening news or in your local town’s fish-wrap  newspaper.
                They looked the other way when a 60-year-old man was shot (in the leg) at a Cleveland tavern…by a Hillary Clinton supporter.
                Then, on October 26th, a man dressed as a construction worker demolished Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The man used a sledgehammer and a pick-ax to obliterate Trump’s name on the sidewalk. What if somehow this scenario was reversed? Think it might be considered indicative of the “bully” Trump, and his crazy, extremist, crackpot supporters from deep within the “Basket of Deplorables?”
                In many areas around the nation, Trump signs have the life expectancy of a snow-cone dropped on a hot sidewalk. Signs are routinely defaced, stolen or in some cases run over.
                And did anyone get sick of the wall-to-wall coverage the media gave to the foiled assassination attempt on Donald Trump at a rally this past summer? You know, the one where Michael Steven Sandford, a 20-year-old British citizen who was in the United States illegally after overstaying his visa, tried to pull a gun from the holster of a police officer at a Trump rally in Las Vegas? Sandford, who was arrested, later told the Secret Service that he had driven to the event from California and had been planning to kill the candidate for a year, according to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Nevada.
                Does anyone think the attempted (premeditated!) murder of a U.S. Presidential candidate by a foreign national during an election campaign might have warranted a bit more coverage than it got? Does anyone think that it wouldn’t have gotten that coverage if it was Hillary Clinton the would-be assassin was trying to kill?
                And now the Trump International Hotel and –bizarrely-the Federal Bureau of Investigation, both on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., have been vandalized. Two men were arrested November 5th in connection with the vandalism, in which they allegedly spray-painted both buildings during the Million Mask March.
                I detest bullies. And who are the real bullies? The establishment elites- those who hold power in government, academia, the media, unions, and on Wall Street- will say or do anything to retain and enhance their power, a point hammered home on a daily basis by the Obama-Clinton oligarchy.
                It is time to “drain the swamp.”
