I don’t meet too many men in kilts do you? But today, but there he was…towing over me…over six feet four, long blond hair to his shoulders, sporting a big, thick gray beard, standing in front of me proudly showing off his blue kilt…..telling me he was the runt of the litter. I didn’t catch his name…but it was Mcsomething or other, and it was his store I was in: a store full of kilts, and hats, and dragons, and crosses, and sheets of arms, and history galore.
It was boring, hot, and humid out–and I had been out in it all day. It was cool in this shop, and wonderfully full of history. We got into a conversations about clans, and Scots—- Wales and Ireland— and the sad demise of red hair.
“Well, have you heard that the Vikings, who own the oil fields, want official recognition of their special status and they may use their vast oil reserves as a bargaining chip to win the right to referendum, if the Scots do not vote for Independence?”
Okay. I had no idea we still had Viking, but evidently in the Shetland Islands, there are about 23,000 of them, and they claim to be…Vikings. And the Scots, NEED that oil. I wouldn’t mess with them.
And then, while we were talking about the Knights of the Templar, somehow he got on the subject of warriors…and Mistletoe. He described some ancient battle that had taken place, long ago in Celtic land…and how it ended under Mistletoe.
What? Yes, there’s more to Mistletoe than kissing.
He took me to a doorway, and pointed up to a 8×11 picture frame, which hung underneath a Mistletoe, and on which, this was inscribed:
In ancient Celtic language Mistletoe means “All Heal”. It was believed that the Mistletoe held miraculous magical qualities. Healing and making poisons harmless, it was used for fertility in animals and humans, it gave protection from witchcraft and evil spirits and brought good luck and blessings.
It was considered so scared in fact that when enemies happened to meet in the forest under Mistletoe they would lay down their arms and call a truce until the next day.
In cultures across pre-Christian Europe, mistletoe was seen as a representation of divine male essence (and thus romance, fertility and vitality).
I was so in wonder at the story, that the man took DOWN the frame, and the fake mistletoe about it, and handed it to me.
“No…I can’t take that..let me pay you for it.” I said.
“Hey, I can give this to you if I want to, hell, it’s my store.” he said.
And then he said, “There is another custom about the mistletoe that I don’t tell anyone, and that’s you pluck a berry THAN you can kiss the girl until all the berries all gone. One berry equals one kiss. But when all the berries are gone, that’s it. No more kisses. I don’t want people plucking all the berries off, so I don’t mention that bit.”
I was thinking about giving the mistletoe and the history to a friend, but…how could I part with such a nice gift from a complete stranger?
So think about this: Men in the heat of battle stopping DEAD in their tracks…due to some parasitic weed. Can you imagine Isis doing that?
Someday I’m going back to that store, and this time, I’m taking my camera. I will never look upon Mistletoe the same way.
In fact, it’s going above my doorway and staying there all year round.
I have wondered, and it is beyond my comprehension, that certain groups of people stay mad and angry at things that happened, not only long ago, but so long ago, it seems pointless to muse, get yourself emotionally upset and bent out of shape for something that’s already happened.
Also, these people continue to want “payback’ for something that nobody in this lifetime even cares anymore about.
IF—- our founders had outlawed slavery, would our world be any different today? Maybe, but no doubt there would be other problems instead. One thing for sure, more blacks would know how to swim.
IF— Britain had won the war of 1812, would the United States be better led by the Queen? She’d be more likable, but then again, England would be Germany. And airplanes might never have been invented. OR light bulbs. OR computers…but tea at three? We’d all have better manners.
Having pondered this: I have to give a good laugh at the British diplomats in Washington, who celebrated the burning of the White House with typical good humor…
British diplomats in Washington are apologizing for Twitter posts that made light of the 200th anniversary of their troops torching the White House in the War of 1812.
The apologies were prompted after the British Embassy posted a picture Sunday of Patrick Davis, deputy British ambassador to the United States, with a caption saying he was participating in “the anniversary of burning of the White House with a BBQ.”
Here we are, another week of mystery abounds, and so I’m going to start out with one which I supposed would be on every conspiracy theory site ever invented: because it sure wasn’t in the news:
Former FBI Director Louis Freeh was stable in a New Hampshire hospital after he was seriously injured in a single-car accident Monday afternoon in Vermont, police said. Details of his condition weren’t released, but a law enforcement official told NBC News that Freeh suffered a broken leg, cuts on his head and other injuries.
Freeh, 64, was flown by helicopter to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire, from the scene in Barnard, Vermont, where he drove his gray 2010 GMC Yukon off the road and into a mail box about noon, Vermont State Police said in a statement.
Mmmmmm…off the road, and into a mailbox at noon? Who runs into a mailbox at NOON?
So then you have to ask yourself–who would want to kill the head of the FBI, the man who knows all the real secrets of all the politicians?
And speaking of nobody—-
Cops everywhere seem to have their hands full:
A naked man had to be sedated at a hemp festival in southern Oregon after police said he damaged cars, started fights and kicked an officer.
Nobody Knows how hard it was to get a 6’3″—- 250 pound wild man with no clothes on into a police car, and which brave cop grabbed him……and we also don’t know how many people at that festival just looked over and said—
“Wow man…check out that dude. That soda is really killer man…lets go get some, uh…look at those pigs man…and Hey! cool it dude!. Chill man… “
And speaking of killers….this could be GOOD news! And bad news…
An American convert to Islam who had gone to Syria to fight with the Islamic State, also called ISIS, was killed over the weekend, his uncle told CNN. The body and passport of Douglas MacArthur McCain, 33, originally of San Diego, California, was discovered by members of the Free Syrian Army after he was killed in a firefight with the group.
Okay, we’re sorry for his mom…but really, think about it: SOMEBODY from the Free Syrian Army found this guy in California and helped get him into Syria.
McCain was likely among the dozens of U.S. citizens that Holder said were involved in roughly 7,000 foreign fighters that U.S. intelligence agencies estimate to be operating in Syria,
And they WONDER why we want the border closed.
Time Warner is gasping for air. CNN is still downsizing. Like the rest of America, it’s getting rid of about 40 of its highest paid journalists, and replacing them with cheap labor. It might actually get better. Which leads me to my next two unknowable questions—-
Nobody Knows that when Columbus landed in Cuba, the natives actually thought he was God. He found this out because he captured a few of them and taught them as much English as he could, and they told him…THEY thought he was God. And so, he used them. He didn’t refute them. He let them believe it. He said this;
“These men are still traveling with me, and although they have been with us now a long time, they continue to entertain the idea that I have descended from heaven: and on our arrival at any new place they published this, crying out immediately with a loud voice to the other Indians, “Come, come and look upon being of a celestial race!.” upon which both women and men, children and adults, young me and old, when they got rid of the fear they at first entertained, would come out in throngs, crowding the roads to see us, some bringing food, others drinks, with astonishing affection and kindness. “
There you go. Pretend to be God, get trusted men to proclaimed you are god, and people bring you gifts! Great trick.
(Hey, it worked in 2008!)
And speaking of tricks, will they EVER send Lois Lerner to jail for lying to Congress? Will they ever get to see those emails?
But I do know one thing this week: The splash your head with ice thing going around is kind of silly, and if you have to be silly, then Dave Barry is your man.
And so I end another week, not knowing why Maureen Dowd can sometimes make sense, (It’s a contradiction in physics)–why America has to close their swimming pools in the middle of summer–why the bees are so tiny this year—-Why men would want to jump in and videotape great white sharks, and why I can’t be in a better mood after the last few weeks. Could be my surgery. (NOTE: ALWAYS put sunscreen on your back.)
Nobody Knows if I will succeed in getting my sense of humor back, but I do know…
It’s possible…I’m getting out my old Dave Barry books.
Forgive me, Ridley.
Just a short report on my visit to the Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield, IL.
The local maps…are a joke. They have all the sights and only a few main streets, and we got lost about 40 times. Ask directions.
We kept hearing that Lincoln was a poor man: Nevertheless, he managed to own a house which by all accounts, would be considered upper middle class in 2014.
It contains the ugliest wall paper this side of the Atlantic.
Lincoln was the best dad a kid could have, the kids could play baseball in the living room.
He liked to torture himself. For instance, this was the desk in his bedroom. My only conclusion is he took off his legs to sit down.
WHY the local citizens decided to build the rest of his neighborhood is beyond all reason. Go to Main Street in Disneyland, it’s much more entertaining.
Not even George Washington has had more books written about him.
Do NOT…I repeat, DO NOT, wear any symbol of the American flag on your person or you will be followed around the city by big, burly, men packing weapons and looking mean.
The Capitol building where the representatives of Illinois come together has more marble than probably the Vatican. Of course, nobody was there, leaving the billions of dollars worth of marble, looking very lonely.
The Governor’s mansion has lots of democratic parties. (For the looters in Ferguson) let me inform you that the chandeliers alone are worth, about as much as the Mona Liza. They will also tell you that this mansion is the biggest in the nation. right. sure.
The best part of the visit was the museum itself. Disney helped and so, you could see Mary’s various dresses, and a room of political cartoons that made you sick because they made it into a fun house, and five politicians in 3D holograms yelling at you about how Lincoln was a black lover, or put it more succinctly, it was like having Al Sharpton and Harry Reid on each side of your head, yelling at you in Chinese. VERY effective to make you want to GET OUT of the museum.
We didn’t go see Spielberg’s props, as they wanted more money.
In the Library, they have given a cast of Lincoln’s hand to a few very famous people: Bill Clinton, Steven Spielberg, and The Pope. By the way….Lincoln had VERY tiny hands. Big feet, and evidently, a blond girlfriend.
At the end of the day, because it was rush hour, we finally made it to his tomb, which is HUGE! But, don’t make the mistake that it’s just a grave. You can go into it, and walk for what seems miles, into an endless underground maze of….MORE marble, and then you come upon his big marble coffin. His family is on the other side.
So, what did I learn? If our government spent even a ‘smidgen’ of the taxpayer’s money they put into building themselves monuments and Presidential libraries, and instead, spend it on the people, we would not own China one penny.
Italy is going to sink from lack of marble.
Besides all of that, I had a great day!
PS. My husband would like to add: “What was a Muslim, doing at the tomb?”
Answer: Looking for her emancipator.
Tonight, in Iraq, people are crying out. When you watch this video, and hear this woman’s plea, you can’t help but think of mass extinctions throughout history. It seems, another mass genocide is about to occur–40,000 people are trapped on Mt. Sinjar in Iraq. ISIS, will kill them. They are in siege, and starving.
I’m sure BECAUSE of this video, Obama has come out tonight and said he’d send some air support and some food. But…that’s about it. It was enough to make me ashamed. Disgusted. Obama has caused the whole Iraq implosion, and now he wants to seem like a hero?
And yet, yesterday, President Bush AND President Obama were wining and dining the fat cat ruthless dictators of Africa at the White House.
I guess its, “Let’s just move on to the minerals in Africa.”
What’s insidious about this, is that due to Obama’s utter incompetence as a leader— the gains that our men made in Iraq mean nothing to Obama. As far as many Americans can see, like Vietnam, America has pulled out, and millions will be slaughtered. Once again, our leaders have made a mockery of our country.
This woman’s tears are heartbreaking. Too bad, we don’t see the Christians video’s isn’t it? Yes, they are being slaughtered everywhere too.
But, when nobody stops evil, history repeats itself.
In AD 73, the Roman general Flavius Silva marched thousands of troops to the base of the plateau and built a siege wall around it, trapping the 967 Jewish men, women, and children at the top. The Roman forces built a ramp along the western edge of the plateau and hauled equipment to the top to batter down the walls of the fortress. As the Romans were breaching the defenses, the leader of the rebels, Elazer Ben Ya’ir, persuaded his people to burn their belongings and to kill themselves rather than let the women and children be taken as slaves. When the Romans reached the top, Josephus says, they were
“met with the multitude of the slain, but could take no pleasure in the fact, though it were done to their enemies. Nor could they do other than wonder at the courage of their resolution, and at the immovable contempt of death which so great a number of them had shown, when they went through with such an action as that was.”
The only survivors were two women and five children who had hidden themselves and so lived to describe the rebels’ last acts to the Romans.
And George and Laura, and Obama and Michelle…dine at the White House— our great leaders, while another country–that they spent trillions of our money on—and men DIED to liberate…is left in ruins.
Pass the hypocrisy.
Most every week, it’s incredibly easy to find people doing stupid things…but this week, I just couldn’t choose one particular one:
Obama? Playing golf while WWIII is starting in the Middle East, Muslims are calling for the Jews extinction all over the globe, N. Korea threatens to nuke the White House, Putin is gathering power by force, and the whole country is furious at him for opening our borders and DUMPING illegals into our cities and towns to be taken care of, and he is doing it in secret. Which impeachable moment do we start with?
George Will? For even assuming that the millions of illegals will become Americans in heart and soul.
Pelosi? For rushing down to the border, and doing her best Zelda Rubinstein Poltergeist imitation on the border.
“Come on in! All are welcome! All are welcome! Go into the light!”
Hamas?— for breaking the peace agreement, not once, but five times, and sacrificing their own children to death.
No…the big news this week is that there is so much bad news, (Having to listen to Madeline Albright ONE MORE TIME among them) that almost all the citizens of the country, are appalled that the Congress had decided to take their big five-week vacation, while the country is in a crisis.
Even though Obama is taking a vacation too, somehow Congress gets the blame.
Tell me: Who has taken MORE vacations? Obama, or Congress?
Nobody Thinks: our government…has died. It’s dead. It no longer functions. It’s AOL. The international vultures are standing on the sidelines waiting…the hungry greedy flies are circling..
Which is why this week I decided to put the contest between: Our government (CONGRESS and Obama) VS…the pizza man of Flatbread.
8:30 p.m. A pizza delivery guy walked into an elderly man’s house to find that the man “looked dead” and was surrounded by flies. The delivery guy assumed the man had expired, left the residence and had his manager call 911. The man was only sleeping and stated that he no longer wants his pizza.
The delivery guy who didn’t know enough to feel a pulse?
Congress for going on vacation when our borders are being invaded?
On the other hand— if Obama would be a real President and STAY in Washington and do his job, maybe Congress would stick around too.
I pick….Obama! Yep, he wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award again for reasons I talk about every single day.
I think the pizza man was just a good guy. Think about it: There’s very few people left in the country that are looking at Washington D.C. and not seeing a dead body.
Maybe we should all call 911.
“Ring, Hello. 911. What’s your emergency?”
“Our government is dead. There IS no pulse. Please send help immediately!”
She didn’t say, on what days.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared that former President George W. Bush inspired her patriotism and made her proud of her American roots, according to The Washington Times.
She said this mostly because George gave billions to Africa to fight aids, or so she says. Democrats LOVE It when you spread taxpayers money around the world.
This is no surprise because the Bushes and the Clintons have ALWAYS been close. It’s almost as if they had a meeting long ago and said, “Look we’ll alternate the power so the people think they are actually voting for different agenda’s, and work with each other on the side.”
When they get in office,— nothing changes. They give each other parties and metals.
Remember, we had the black vote BEFORE the women’s vote, so Obama was just a breather.
Nevertheless, Hillary doesn’t say these things without a reason., Is she is distancing herself from Obama, or trying to get some conservative women’s vote…or trying to show she will work with republicans if elected?
You know what? I am totally sick of them all.
And according to the news…so is most of America.
If you ever wondered and got confused about the EMPIRE of Great Britain, this very fast geography lesson will tell you all you need to know.
EXCEPT…I am STILL confused about the Republic of Ireland. Why didn’t Northern Ireland join the Republic of Ireland?
And since billionaires keep their money in the Cayman Islands, does the Queen get a cut?
One thing you can be sure of, many Brits are still mad that we went to war with them, and started our own nation, rather than become a commonwealth of the monarchy, which to any Brit, is the height of human endeavor and magnificence.
They look on us much as they look on…say the sheep in Northern Ireland.
I also learned for this nifty little video that the Queen LOVES islands. She has so many islands the royals will never, ever run out of their own private vacation places.
This is really fun to watch.. ENJOY! (I’m going to see it one more time.)
(Thanks to amfortas!)
There’s a long line of reasons for it, most of which happened long before the potato famine, which to the rest of the world made no sense. Why didn’t they just go catch some fish?
To show the hatred between the Irish and the British, I’ve included a short passage from the book “All Facts Considered.” by Kee Malesky
The Irish Famine (in Gaelic, An Gorta Mor, “The Great Hunger”) had a terrible impact on the country: a million people died of starvation or disease, and at least another million emigrated. In the Mid-1800s, Ireland was “wretched, rebellious and utterly dependent on the potato.” When blight hit the potato crop beginning in 1845, the people were devastated. Little was done by the British government to alleviate their suffering: indeed, merchants and landlords actually exported food from Ireland during the worst years of the famine. Some Protestant groups offered to feed the hungry- if they would convert from Catholicism: Those who did were called ‘soupers’, because they traded their souls for a bowl of soup. British economist and Oxford professor Nassau William Senior wrote at the time that the famine “would not kill more than one million people, and that would scarcely be enough to do any good.”
And I’m sure, my British friend amfortas would say: “Serves you right— Better you take them than us!.”
Nevertheless, I’ve never met an American Irish man I didn’t like. In fact, my best friend is Irish.
Therefore, I’m certainly not fit to meet the Queen.
(Take it away amfortas, if you’re out there.)
My husband wasn’t feeling well last night, so for the first time in my life, I did not go to anywhere to see fireworks. But I did go to the pool, and was chased in earnest on my way out, by some lady who looked as if had the most dire news:
“We just need to raise the utility taxes 7 percent.” the lady said. Good god. We fought a WAR over taxes this day in 1776. What a day to ask.
By the look on her face, things were dire. She stuck a flyer in my face which said that due to budget cuts, not only will the Fireworks display be gone forever, but our police and fire department would have to make cuts also.
Yes, my little town has become Detroit. We will cut everything but big government bureaucrats and their big overloaded pensions.
My friend, who saw the horror in her face, fell for it. “You know, we haven’t had to pay this tax for years.” she said.
We pay some of the biggest property taxes in Missouri. We also have the BIGGEST school district in Missouri, so you know, it’s full of teachers, administrators…democrats, all making big bucks.
More than 67 percent of our property taxes goes to the school, which is almost 75 percent black, and YET, the state lottery is suppose to support them too. And they want more.
Some of these people make over $230,000 a year. And our schools are horrible. I know, I went to them. (It’s one of the reasons my spelling is so bad.) So did my son.
Using FEAR and PITY, is an old political trick. Obama is using the children on the border right now…as a weapon.
As I read the headlines tonight on Drudge, its says we are a divided nation. Okay, but you sure couldn’t tell that today.
And yet…I did notice two things about this 4th that I have never noticed before:
I watched the celebrations in Washington D.C. and New York. In song, and spirit, it was one of the MOST Patriotic I’ve seen in years. They even said the Pledge of Allegiance with GOD left in! And in my neighborhood, where fireworks are not allowed, all around there were so many fireworks in the sky, smoke-filled the streets.
Everybody broke the law. What were the police going to do? Arrest them all? I loved it.
While, I think, in some small way, it was a good sign–in their own small way the people who put on these programs decided to go back to the America values of our traditions—–My husband said, “It’s all about false hope.” And he could be right. Tonight I noticed that my cable station added about 30 Spanish-speaking channels…not much hope for “One nation, under god.” with that is there?
Sometime this weekend, Obama will be wining and dining “illegals” who join the military. I guess American Citizens are not longer joining up. He is going full force with letting everyone who can get in, come in.
And where do we go to stop this invasion, brought to us to destroy our way of life by our own government?
Maybe our founders had the answer: Give the power, back to the states.
And that’s why I include this scene from the HBO series, John Adams.
The words, still stand. All we need to do is resurrect them.
Right after Obama first came into office, Obama made this great speech about all the things he was going to do with the $787 billion dollars that Congress just gave him, which INCLUDED, he was going to use that money to rebuild our infrastructure.
So…here it is, six years later, no infrastructure has been done anywhere, including our electrical grid which needs protection from an EMP attack, (And by the way, that would cost LESS than a billion) and now he is saying that CONGRESS will not give him more money to build the infrastructure.
Those mean bullies in Congress.
Yes, Congress is going to keep America from fixing the infrastructure.
Uh…Barry…Where did all that money go? It went to the unions, to Solyndra, to all his buddies, including Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law who got $737 million of it.
Not s smidgen of it.
After six years, we know how Obama works. He creates fear, he creates crisis’, he crushes businesses, free enterprise, and freedom…and when it all blows up in his face, he just blames it on the other guy.
And then he comes BACK to promise that he will save us all, it’s that other guy whose messing up..not him.
Obama now blames the Republicans for the crisis on the border. And yes, Obama made that crisis.
But there is more to it than just creating more democratic voters and overwhelming the welfare system.
I was listening to a talk show the other day, and one lady, I thought, really hit the mark on the illegals flooding our borders. She said the reason they are flooding our country with illegals, is to get rid of local government.
Makes sense. She was right. To truly rule, you have to control at the local level. It’s George Orwell, 1984. Obama means to have complete control, but he can’t let us know that, and that’s why he keeps making flippant jokes about it.
I was watching Bill Ayers on Megan Kelly tonight, and thought— Some people just never got over the sixties. Bill Ayers, reminds me of so many people back then. The hatred they had for Nixon, the hatred for the war. Heck, I was one of them, although, I was smart enough to realize that smoking dope, and having ‘free’ sex was really stupid. And that business was a good thing, I just didn’t trust our government, and I still don’t. (Ronald Reagan being the exception.)
On that, many American, including me, can agree with him.
But that’s where Bill Ayer’s logic stops. The man is a criminal. So he bombed the Pentagon? What makes him any different from the terrorist that flew into it on 9/11?
(Well Bill, then leave for God’s sake. Move to China.)
All my friends got on the liberal bandwagon in the sixties. And some of them never got off. And that’s how I look at Bill Ayers and Bill and Hillary Clinton. While they claim to be ‘progressives’ to me, they NEVER came out of the sixties. They bought that communistic propaganda, lock, stock, and barrel.
Sometime in the seventies, I started reading about communism. I realized that the communist had infiltrated America in the sixties, (by their OWN admission) and they got a foothold in our schools, and now, they are running the country. The communists have ALWAYS been here. They just got their big feet finally planted around 1963. Only, they call themselves ‘progressives.’ There is nothing ‘progressive’ about communism. Redistribution, doesn’t work.
Bill Ayers tonight compared himself to the revolutionary founders who he said, ‘used violence’ to protest. He forgets his history. The British sent the military into ordinary people’s homes.
Nobody in America wanted to go to war with Britain. It was the dirty boot of tyranny that forced us.
Bill Ayers didn’t like the Vietnam war. While Nixon, LBJ, and Kennedy, all got us into Vietnam, and the war was to most of us, uncalled for since America had NOT been attacked, Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground preferred violence, was directed against American people. HE was not being personally attacked by the end of a rifle by his own government.
The man is too much of a coward to fight. (Yes, I have a fantasy of a good Navy Seal dragging him off to sea.) It takes a brave man, (Like Ted Cruz) to stand in front of the whole world and say, “This is wrong.” Bill Ayers is not Martin Luther King. He’s not even MS. Piggy.
Anyway, this 4th, when things seem darkest: When it looks as if Obama’s big ‘progressive’ “I will go it alone!” foot is out to destroy the very fundamental things that has made this country great—–
THIS is the time when we should all celebrate our American heritage with flags everywhere. Remember, the progressive WANT you to think— America is dead.
Yeah. Sure. I’m from Missouri…you have to SHOW ME that’s it’s a fact.
I hope Americans everywhere FLAUNT their flags in Obama’s face…and remember the last warning of George Orwell:
“Nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud, is the only maxim which can ever preserve the liberties of any people.”
Well happy campers, it looks like Nobody Knows exactly when the fall of Western Civilization is going to commence, but, if history is any indication for us, the invasion of the sovereignty snatchers has begun.
According to an elite liberal California College professor, the fall of the Roman American Empire is here:
Hamamoto warns that the influx of illegal immigrants into the U.S. and by extension into the college education system is part of a deliberate plot, “to exclude the American middle class from a UC education and create a new demographic of largely immigrant or foreign national undergraduate population that can be re-educated from the ground up and controlled much more readily.” The professor added that UC Davis, “is gearing up for what they call the “Hispanization” of the University of California, which means in-state or full-ride tuition to both illegal’s and the offspring of illegal immigrants.”
Gee…Nobody Knows why it took a liberal Spanish guy to point out the obvious, but have no fear, my good campers, the same invasion of the sovereignty snatchers is also happening in Europe. Boatloads of people are floating into Italy, where the once very generous Catholic population is having trouble finding places to put them all:
The situation is unprecedented. Sicily, which has received more than 53,000 of the new arrivals, is bearing the brunt and struggling to cope. And summer – historically the peak time for boat landings – has only just begun. “I’m very afraid that in July, August and September, the situation will grow and grow,” says Rosario Valastro, president of the Italian Red Cross in Sicily. “We have some days where we have the navy arriving in three or four different ports at the same time. My volunteers are really, really tired. I’m very afraid.” Sicilian towns from Catania on the eastern coast to Palermo in the north have been transforming sports halls, churches and other buildings into ad-hoc facilities.
Nobody Knows if this is a coincidence, or a very well planned strategy thought up at a G-20/Bilderberg cocktail party, but I think Pat Buchannan summed it up nicely last week:
But which represents the greater long-term threat to the safety and security of our people and nation: sending those five Taliban leaders to Doha, and perhaps back to Afghanistan, or releasing into the U.S. population last year 36,000 criminal illegal aliens with 88,000 convictions among them?
Exactly Pat. And by the way…where ARE those Taliban leaders today?
Are they dining in the White House? Nobody Knows.
Maybe some of us who have enough money for gas, ought to start picking up illegal’s at the border and start dropping them off in front of the White House. And then, drop them off in front of some of the richest real estate in the country, and when those rich elites don’t feed them, I suggest we call them racists and have them all arrested.
And speaking of the White House—
It’s now official: The White House loves to crash all it’s hard drives. Nobody Knows how much longer the White House can keep destroying evidence, but it’s having so much fun, now the EPA, the other left hand of Obama’s tyranny (the IRS being the right) just declared their emails can’t be found due to a hard drive crash.
Last November, Issa subpoenaed the EPA for various emails and documents that Republicans suspect will show that the White House interfered with congressional requests for information.
Nobody Knows why any of these people can’t be arrested…but now that a Senator was audited, maybe Lois will finally go to jail!
WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional investigators say they uncovered emails Wednesday showing that a former Internal Revenue Service official at the heart of the tea party investigation sought an audit involving a Republican senator in 2012 Startling new emails from the woman at the center of the IRS tea party-targeting scandal show that Lois Lerner suggested referring Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley for an audit.
HA HA! And speaking of going to jail, Speaker John Boehner has decided the way to stop Obama from ignoring Congress…is
Is to …sue him.
Nobody Knows how long that will take, but it’s a sure thing that most of South America will be citizens of the New AMERCO before Obama ever sees his day in court.
And speaking of Obama, he has a friend in Thad Cochran.
Yes, the Rino’s are in bed with Obama. The North American Union MUST go on, so how do you stop the people from winning? After all, the Rino’s had to get their act together after the speaker was ousted by a Tea Party Patriot.
They used…the RACE card in the elections in Mississippi, to push their Rino favorite. Hey— It works for the democrats.
And the democrats put old Thad over the top…by a hair. Karl Rove would be proud.
It’s generally agreed that Thad Cochran squeaked out a win in Mississippi last night in part by getting Democrats, especially African Americans, to turn out. Here’s a flier that was distributed in heavily black precincts suggesting how he accomplished this:
Nobody Knows, but Nobody can guess that Obama helped his old friend Charlie Rangel stay in power too.
So, will this new North Americo country coming soon have term limits?
Nobody Knows. But…you do know, what I think.
Nothing short of honest politicians, is impossible–let’s think back:
A newspaper editor in 1865 told his readers, “Well-informed people know that it is impossible to transmit the voice over wires and that, were it possible to do so the thing would have no practical value.”
(So would say Obama with the ‘invention’ of Fox News, but too bad.)
On the day the Wright Brothers first took wing, newspapers refused to report the event because their editors simply could not bring themselves to believe it had happened. Basically because a famous American astronomer, Simon Newcomb, had assured the world that “No possible combination of known substances, known forms of machinery and no forms of force, can be united in a practical machine by which man shall fly long distances.”
Another elite expert said, not long after that, that is was “Nothing less than feeble-mindedness to expect anything to come of the horseless carriage movement. Six years later the one-millionth Ford rolled off the assembly line.
(It’s amazing what the feeble-minded can do if you give them a chance.)
And the discoverer of the atom, Ernest Rutherford, said in 1933, that the energy in the atom’s nucleus would never be released, but nine years later: the first chain reaction.
And so, I keep hoping for air cars. Several men have invented cars that run on just the air around us…and there are already several ‘cars’ that fly like planes.
It could be a whole new world..
Nevertheless: almost all modern inventions were invented in America: where the American Dream of creating something new is what drove the genius, and freedom was its fuel.
Take away freedom of the individual. You take away inventions.
In the meantime, Nobody Suggests that it’s time to ‘invent’ a way to put politicians in jail, so we can get back to the important (And may I say…AMERICAN) business of…inventing.
Anybody who has been lied to, and has known a psychopathic liar, can look at this video, and notice, that, just by the way Obama smiles calmly and explains the whole IRS scandal away as nothing, is proof that Obama himself orchestrated it.
I’ve known a few psychopathic liars myself. Some people can’t lie to save their own souls, (I’m one of them) and others, have made it into an art form.
To an honest person, being a good liar is almost a talent like hitting a home run…you sit back and go… “HOW do they DO that!” To us, it’s impossible. To them, it’s almost…thrilling.
Do we know that Obama was behind the IRS scandal? Sure. Everybody knows it. And yet, notice how Bill O’Reilly, is scared. He asks the questions and accepts the answer. In this interview, Bill O’Reilly, is scared…of Obama. I bet he didn’t do a ‘read my body language’ on this interview, did he?
Today’s Sunday talk shows were full of discussions about the IRS scandals. There is enough circumstantial evidence, despite the emails that have been destroyed, to convict them all in an honest court. Not to mention, all of those emails were backed up. (Somebody call Snowdon)
The crimes committed by the White House, and the IRS, ARE high crimes, but we have reached the point in America where the ruling class is all-powerful.
The daily lying from Obama and all his puppets of delusional Marxists fanatics are really old news, aren’t they?
Remember, we had eight years of the Clinton’s, who lied so much they must consider it a blood sport, and every time they get by with ‘murder’ they must high-five all the way to the bank.
When Hillary made her famous “What difference does it make?” speech in front of Congress, we all forget just how long she has been lying, and the lying has KEPT her in power. If Hillary had been an honest person, she would at best, be working as a teacher. ( a job she says she would like to be now.)
Remember Travelgate? Hillary came into the Oval office, and then she fired everyone in the Travel office,
” action be taken to get ‘our people’ into the travel office”
There was an investigation.
Hillary Clinton gave a deposition under oath to the Independent Counsel that touched on travel office questions; she denied having had a role in the firings, but was unable to recall many specifics of conversations with Foster and Watkins.
And it’s no wonder the Clinton’s wanted the old guard out of the Travel Office, they didn’t want anyone to know Bill’s trips to the islands…that’s my thought. Dale and his staff had been replaced with Little Rock, Arkansas-based World Wide Travel, a company with a substantial reputation in the industry but with several ties to the Clintons.
They brought the corruption from Arkansas with them to the White House. When did they get involved in corruption? We won’t go into the fact that Bill Clinton had lunch with David Rockefeller when he was 17, and helped run drugs in Arkansas. Hillary had Watergate.
Nobody Wonders, when do psychopathic narcissistic politicians start lying? Did they all start lying when they were kids?
And have you noticed, lying, to a liberal, is as natural breathing in air. Today I heard a liberal say that it was a IRS republican that started the Tea Party harassments. And he said it with a straight face.
Nobody Wonders, what in the world happens to a person to make them want so much power, that they will do anything under the sun, including, minute by minute lying, to get to the top?
Was the fact that Hillary’s Republican Daddy loved the boys the best? She had to prove herself to spite him?
Or Bill Clinton’s mommy had a loose sexual life, witnessed by her young son? The old “grew up with a prostitute” and no daddy problem?
Or how about Obama’s Marxists mummy and daddy deserted me, and I’m STILL angry?
There has to be deep psychological problems with all these people.
But, back to Travelgate:
The travel office controversy was subsequently judged to have been a factor in Vince Foster’s depression and July 20, 1993, suicide. In his torn-up resignation note from a few days before, he wrote “No one in The White House, to my knowledge, violated any law or standard of conduct, including any action in the Travel Office. There was no intent to benefit any individual or specific group. [...] The press is covering up the illegal benefits they received from the travel staff”. (In the last part, Foster may have been referring to lax customs treatment by the Travel Office of goods brought back from foreign trips by reporters.)
There is ample proof that Vince Foster KNEW the Clinton’s very well, and had to be…disposed of. And the Clinton’s must have made sure that resignation got out to clear their good names.
If you do the research, the circumstantial evidence that Vince Foster was murdered is very compelling. Let’s not even get into Ron Brown.
And what did Hillary do? What democrats always do: they get RID of the evidence of their crimes.
Contrary to the White House spin, Vincent Foster’s connection to the Clinton’s was primarily via Hillary, rather than Bill. Vincent and Hillary had been partners together at the rose law firm, and allegations of an ongoing affair had persisted from the Little Rock days to the White House itself.Foster was also the keeper of the files of the Clinton’s Arkansas dealings and had indicated in a written memo that “Whitewater is a can of worms that you should NOT open!”
While the U.S. Park Police (a unit not equipped for a proper homicide investigation) studied the body, Foster’s office at the White House was being looted. Secret Service agent Henry O’ Neill watched as Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, Margaret Williams, carried boxes of papers out of Vincent Foster’s office before the Park Police showed up to seal it. Amazing when you consider that the official identification of Vincent Foster’s body by Craig Livingstone did not take place until 10PM! Speaking of Craig Livingstone, another Secret Serviceman saw him remove items from Vincent Foster’s office in violation of the official seal. Witnesses also saw Bernard Nussbaum in Foster’s office as well. Three witnesses noted that Patsy Thomason, director of the White House’s Office of Administration, was desperate to find the combination to Vincent Foster’s safe. Ms. Thomason finally opened the safe, apparently with the help of a special “MIG” technical team signed into the White House in the late hours. Two envelopes reported to be in the safe by Foster’s secretary Deborah Gorham, addressed to Janet Reno and to William Kennedy III, were never seen again. When asked the next day regarding rumors of the safe opening, Mack McLarty told reporters Foster’s office did not even have a safe, a claim immediately shot down by former occupants of that office.
Hillary’s good at shredding stuff too.
And here’s the good news: You can only lie so often and so long. sooner or later, even the most gullible person will figure out, just how horribly corrupt the democrats are. I have a feeling, by the up scaled PR on them all, that people are starting to get tired of all their…lying.
I heard an expert on the radio talking about voter fraud last week. She sounded hopeless and laid out just how many ways they can stuff the ballot boxes, and remember both the Clinton’s and Obama’s second term was probably fixed —-they won by a slim margins.
ONLY by mass numbers of people voting, can the corruption be stopped.
So…will we have someone we will even want to vote for in the next Presidential election?
Go ahead and lie. I am SO used to it.
