Senator John McCain has been around for much too long. And I wrote a long ‘opinion’ on it today, but can’t find it anywhere on my computer, so in view of my opinion, I present just for this Monday, Senator Rand Paul’s very excellent summation of John McCain.
Actually, John McCain has been driving me nuts. A man in search of a war…and proof that years of torture truly does affect one’s outlook on life. Thank God John McCain never got to the Oval Office.
If I find my piece, I’ll post it later, but now, enjoy Rand’ Paul’s views on Senator John McCain. In fact, if you have time, the whole interview is worth watching.
McCain comments start around 7.03, don’t miss them.
This is trending on YouTube, and it’s such a great video for a Sunday.
The whole world was saddened by the loss of that truly brilliant light, Steve Irwin. There was simply nobody like him on the planet.
But look…here, is his son.
It’s incredible just how smart and professional Robert Irwin’s son. He’s going to be just as great as his dad. And kudo’s to his mum for raising such wonderful children.
This is proof, of just how incredibly important fathers are in their children’s life. He IS his father’s son.
I do miss his dad, but watch how well this young man does taking his father’s place.
I’m sure Steve must be up there somewhere, just beaming with pride.
One of my favorite songs. Brain Adams writes some of the most romantic songs of the decade. In that respect, I envy his girlfriends.
I like the dog in this video. I like how the guitar fits perfectly, the sweetness of his tone. I love how the band works so well and is ‘tight.’ I love the dynamics, Brian’s voice, and how the music expresses the words and feelings of Brian’s emotions.
And most of all, forgive me, I LOVE the drummers’ cymbals. I never get tired of listening to it, and that to me, is the mark of a classic.
After the last week, I thought that we should end on a good note, and President Trump made that happen today. It was glorious!
He gave one of the best press conferences ever given by any President that I remember, and the reason it was so great, is that he just tells the truth. And the Trumpsters, LOVE it! Not so much the press, which as you will hear all weekend, are insulted, hurt, and besides themselves that this man of the people, is sticking UP for the people, and actually doing what he promised.
And here he is putting the coal miners back to work, to the benefit of us all, with the help of a few Congressmen who cared.
This was a big deal, for all of us. Al Gore laments that in the desert, in the Middle East, why…the temperature got up to 165 degrees in the desert! The earth will become uninhabitable, he says. Al Gore will have to give up one of his many houses, to save us.
And what’s better than coal? Solar panels are lame, too expensive, and kill millions of birds. Using corn for Ethanol was actually more environmentally damaging and expensive than coal. And frankly, while nuclear power might be a good thing, the whole planet pays a high price when things go wrong. You don’t want to even KNOW what’s happening in Fukushima.
And in less than one month, President Donald Trump has brought back jobs. The stock market is roaring. The only thing holding him back is Congress.
Yes. Jobs. He SAID he would be the greatest jobs President in history, and let’s hope so, because we are in socialist deep doo-do.
From Freedom Manifesto by Steve Forbes:
Today in America there are nearly twice as many people working for the government (22.5 million) than in all of manufacturing. (11.5 million). This is almost exact reversal of the situation in 196o, when there were 15 million workers in manufacturing and 8.7 million collecting a paycheck from the government.
And THAT is why, I was always sure Donald J. Trump was the best hope we had. As much as many of my friends loved Ted Cruz, there is no doubt, Trump knows how to make America great again. America needed a business man.
I hope he does this again, and often.
Yes, I’m going out on a happy note this weekend…and that’s been rare, right?
Thank you, Mr. President! You’re simply the best!
Nobody Gets Email
I got this last week, and my mind was a bit blown by this girl’s complete dismissal of reality. If you watch this loony girl, (Who, god help us, is a teacher) insist that every conservative basically does not deserve to exist, and then realize, she is dead serious, you have to wonder what kind of sex life she has.
How she can insist that she has the right to hit people, because she doesn’t like them?
She should have been arrested for the assault you see her commit in this video. In fact, all over the country, Trump supporters are getting beat up, some of them badly. Not much is happening to them. Cops are even letting it happen in some places.
And yet, these mentally deranged children (which is what they are) say that it’s because of the violent attacks happening all around THEM, and at them, that gives them the right to fight back.
–violent attacks from the “alt-right’ which of course, are not happening.
Yvette labels Trump supporters as fascists, which is exactly what SHE is, but don’t tell her. If she had a brain it would explode, and frankly, the streets are in bad enough condition.
All I can say is….amazing. Also, notice how she expands the meaning of the word “fascist” to mean a whole butt-load of things, including genocide.
Someone should ask her just WHO is breaking windows and setting fires, (It’s not the alt-right) and why that isn’t fascist.
And by the way, nobody on the right, not Milo, or anybody is calling for ‘genocide.’
I tell you one thing, if she would have pushed me like that, I would have pushed back.
Yvette Felarra: Mindless, obnoxious, and close to becoming Soros’s new unmitigated bully.
Milo should dare her to a debate! THAT would be a good show.
(Thanks to ‘g’ man)
Nobody’s Are MAD
It’s one thing to be a sore loser, it’s quite another to deliver a coup d’état because you want your power back. Not very American.
That’s what’s happening here. The illegal eavesdropping on General Flynn, done by secretive intelligence operators out to destroy the President, is just another Stalin-like attempt to take BACK the Presidency.
The American people know what’s going on. The Globalist club, of which the Bushes, the Clintons, and the Obamas are devout and loyal members, are going full throttle now. None of them want to let go of that office.
They tried to defeat Trump at the ballot box, but they couldn’t. Most of us feel, at this point, that if they could assassinate him, they would. But they know he still has the majority of the American people on his side, so they are doing everything they can short of that. They just launched a campaign of how President Trump is in bed with Russia, and therefore should be impeached.
While Rush Limbaugh wants to blame the Democrats, there is no doubt that the men leading this charge are the Neocon’s in the House and Senate who do NOT want the war with Russia stopped. They spouted off about it every chance they got, all through the primary and beyond.
Let’s get this straight: Even if Flynn did go to Russia after Obama kicked out all their ambassadors, and he told them Trump would be easier to deal with, why in the world is that any surprise? Obama himself admitted that Russia did NOT affect our elections. Trump wants a good relationship with Russia, and he said so many times. What Obama did was purely political.
Flynn committed no crime. The crime he did commit, is he kept VP Pence out of the loop. Which to an American like me, was a smart move. Pence is still Ryan’s best friend, and I’m sure would be the preferred President if anything would happen to Trump.
Plus: Why does the VP have to know, if Flynn works with the President?
He lied to the FBI? Hell, our own NSA director lied to the FBI. As did Hillary Clinton, and on much more serious charges than this. Why should all the people who have lied to the FBI in the last 8 years go scot-free? And EVERYBODY lies to Congress.
Flynn had to be destroyed, for the simple reason that Flynn actually has written a book on the way to keep us out of wars, and that’s NOT something the NEOCONS want.
In order for the globalists to stay in power, they must get rid of Trump, or at least put their people in as many positions as possible.
This is the ‘old Stalinists’ GOP, as I like to call them, going after Trump. They really want to use this to impeach Trump.
It’s not going to work.
(Sorry this is longer than I wanted it to be, but I’m mad.)
The proof that this is all about the old guard that’s been in charge, is that Paul Ryan came out BEFORE Trump today, and basically said, that Presidents have all tried to make good with Russia, but Ryan could tell them that they are all just inexperienced kids.
In other words, Ryan knows better than the Presidents. Russia is our enemy.
(Insert your own cuss words here…..)
Flynn said this in his defense:
In some of these cases, you’re talking about stuff that’s taken off of a classified system and given to a reporter. That’s a crime,” Flynn told The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group during a telephone interview from his White House office on Monday.
Former intelligence and military officers told TheDCNF they agree Flynn was the victim of a highly orchestrated “disinformation campaign” generated by current and former intelligence officers, many with loyalties to former President Obama.
Intelligence officials are supposed to use their expertise in psychological warfare and disinformation campaigns against enemy states, but never against an occupant of the Oval Office.
Michael Savage said this:
“I see the demonization of Putin, Russia and Flynn as part of a campaign by neocons, the intel community and Democrats who want constant antagonism with Russia,” he said.
“It’s like firemen who start fires to justify their jobs.”
I’m with Savage. This is about global politics. Russia doesn’t want the Muslims in his country. Trump doesn’t want the Muslim in OUR country. Putin, does not want to be part of the global government, neither does Trump.
In the meantime the real criminals, Bill and Hillary Clinton, remain scot free of the many REAL crimes they’ve committed. Did Trump and Flynn have the right to talk to Russia, even though they were not in office yet? You can bet every president we’ve had has done the same.
Now, if you want to know the real plans that the NWO (Remember this consists of OLD GOP and Dems) just listen to this ranting and insane monologue:
Listen if you can, to the man who I cannot believe ever had a mother.
I have a friend who writes for a famous online website, and in one of his last emails he was all upset about President Trump. He repeated almost verbatim the constant criticisms we hear everywhere, and which we will hear tonight, if we watch the Grammys. He is a very intelligent guy, but he married into a very rich and liberal California family, and I wonder, just why, he doesn’t give the stuff he hears every day more discerning attention. And sadly, I realized, there are many more like him. As Goebbels said famously, if the lie is big enough and you repeat it enough, people believe it.
And there are a lot of big lies making the headlines today.
The producer of the Grammy’s, which are on tonight, has given the star’s complete permission to blast away at our new President. Musicians, and I can attest to this, have just as big as ego’s as the movie stars, and I expect Adele to try to top Meryl Streep. Does she think she’s the best singer to ever grace the planet? Probably. But that’s no reason to spoil our night, is it?
What is insane is the annoying crying of how they: rich movie stars, and black people, and gay people, and Hispanics and let’s throw poodles in there for good measure— yes, they are ALL, every single one of them being attacked by the “white supremacists” —Those…homophobic, Islamophobia, horrible and deplorable people who voted for President Trump.
Meryl Streep, for instance, attacked our President while the world was watching, and is SHOCKED that she is getting threats.
“It’s terrifying to put the target on your forehead,” she said. “And it sets you up for all sorts of attacks and armies of brown shirts and bots and worse, and the only way you can do it is if you feel you have to. You have to! You don’t have an option. You have to.”
Okay. Notice the word “Brown shirts.” What Meryl Streep, and many of her paid attackers are doing are themselves creating the very same thing that happened in Nazi Germany.
They are attacking…a certain brand of people. Mostly, hard-working, patriotic, white people, who mostly support the other half of the country that does NOT work. They remember the old America, and they aren’t really excited about the new socialistic and yes, fascistic life being forced on them.
As I’ve written here a hundred times, when a democrat accuses a conservative of anything, it’s exactly what they are doing. If there’s a crime, Democrats are committing the very crime, they are accusing the Republicans of.
And the crime that Obama, Sanders, Hillary… in fact the whole party of progressive (Remember, the communists changed their name to progressives long ago) losers are committing the very same crime committed by Hitler in Nazi Germany.
The Jews were attacked. The Jews were blamed for Germany’s problems.
Now, add to the Jews, the white man.
The new Jew in America IS the white man. If he does not agree with the liberal party line, then the white man must be brought into the fold, and shamed, yes, just like the Jews were in Germany, shamed into suffering from the crime…of being white.
I’m surprised they haven’t gotten around to making us all wear white armbands.
Obama started this shaming. Every single chance he got, he ‘shamed’ us all for being “racist.” Obama fanned the fires of racism in Ferguson and Baltimore, and the mall riots. He is still doing it. He ignored all the knockout games going on all through the 8 years he was President. He tried to shame us for wanting our “guns and religion.”
To further attack the white (Jew), universities now have classes teaching how NOT to act like a white supremacist, and how to spot them, like this one at Notre Dame.
Sociology 25280, or “White Privilege Seminar: An Introduction to the Intersections of Privilege,” is a one-credit, six-week preparatory sociology class designed to educate and train ten carefully selected students on the definitions of and causes and effects of white privilege, according to the course description.
White privilege? Trust me. No middle class white person in America feels “privileged.”
Go ahead…type in ‘White supremacy” and see the attacks on white people. One title said, What can educators do about white supremacy?
I want to know how many of these educators have looked at their white skin lately, and wonder if that’s why they make the big bucks…and if they believe that, then why aren’t they giving up their jobs to a Muslim, or a black teacher?
Last night we went to the movie, John Wick. There was a trailer before the movie done by Whoopi Goldberg to be shown on ABC, where she is portrayed as some kind of hero, shaming the white man for victimizing women, gays, blacks… whatever. Be sure not to watch it if you’re white.
Also, I’d pass up Netflick’s new series on “Dear White People” where you will be shamed into hearing how bad you are, never mind that your only crime is that you are white.
When Madonna said she wanted to “blow up the white house” she meant it.
But there’s one thing that the white man of America has that the Jews of Germany didn’t have.
We still have the numbers, our guns, and our belief in God. We have the good God that doesn’t behead you if you don’t worship him, or call you a white supremacist if you love your country, and are proud of the heritage of your ancestors.
There is a line in Amistad, where Cinque, the slave, talks of his ancestors. It’s one of my favorite lines in any movie.
Tell me, is there any man or woman on earth who could not utter those same lines? Why should anyone of any color be ashamed of the color of their skin? Why should white people?
No other group on this planet has done more for humanity. That’s not to say that a black, or brown, or any other ethnic group could not have achieved the same…but they didn’t. Why?
Not because of the color of their skin, or the country they are from, but from something that one ‘tribe’ of people seemed to have known: Freedom is the key. Despite the dark hour of slavery, it was the white man who gave us the “rule of law.” Based on the ten commandments, it has been the rock upon great nations were built.
The white man, have given us just about every convenience we have today, from Tom Edison lighting up the world, to computers, to cell phones, to, you name it. The Jews have won more Nobel prizes than any other group of people.
Was this due to white privilege? No. It was sheer determination to make life better for themselves.
Education. Good law. A willingness to make mistakes and keep trying. And hard work. Simple formulas that spell success.
White people are not the enemy. President Trump is not the enemy.
The truth is the rise of the Progressives will damn us all to being just another socialist tyrannical country. They are the ones that are following in Hitler’s footsteps, and they have the backing of the global corporations whose real motivation is not the progress of humanity, but the control of them.
For they will lead the world into darkness.
No…we didn’t start the fire, but we did light up the world. We defeated the Nazi’s. We saved the world more times than we’ve ever gotten credit for.
The truth is nobody is privileged in this world. We could all die tomorrow, no matter what age or color. The real prejudiced people are the ones trying to shame you into believing that you have no right to save your country, and the ones you love.
Man was put on earth to survive. As President Trump said: “We either have a country, or we don’t.” It’s not up to the rich progressive globalist who should become Americans.
It’s up to the Americans. And no amount of shaming us is going to change that. Americans should call to their ancestors, like Cinque did.
For we are the reason that they existed at all.
Humans have always stood up to pure evil, and here is a man in Hungary who is bound and determined not to let the Muslims take away his country….
Mayor Laszlo Toroczkai is standing for his people:
Hey, why not post an inspiring story for Sunday?
From the Gateway Pundit:
…He has introduced a zero-tolerance policy against all migrants, saying that the very future of Europe is at stake because of people he calls Muslim ‘invaders’ and ‘future terrorists’, and has vowed to stop this movement of people.
‘It is very important for the village to preserve its traditions,’ he says. ‘We can see large Muslim communities in western Europe that haven’t been able to integrate — and we don’t want to have the same experience here.’…
…He has announced new rules for the town he runs, and wants the rest of Hungary to follow suit, banning the building of mosques, making the Muslim call to prayer illegal, and banning the burqa and the ‘burkini’ swimsuit. He says the measures are key to preventing Muslims ‘causing fear, alarm and shock among the locals’.
I’m hoping by passing this video around, we might inspire more men to take a stand. Men have a right to protect their country, and Laszlo is to be admired for taking a strong stand.
That’s not “populism” that’s just sheer survival.
So, Congratulations, Mayor Toroczkai! You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for showing the rest of the world, how its done.
And it’s not even Thursday yet!
Just how much success President Trump will have, in trying to save this country, especially the parts that have been being destroyed decade after decade. And how is he going to do this with a $20 trillion dollar deficit? Is Congress going to even let him lower taxes? One thing is sure: Only Trump seems to acknowledge how really bad things are.
Our “government” has been sucking the middle class’s paychecks, and spending it…mostly overseas…to build up the middle class of China and India, so that the foreign middle classes would be able to afford the Fortune 500 companies products, keeping the Congress and their buddies on Wall Street fat and happy at the stock market.
Notice, the stock market never seems to suffer, and when the going got tough, President Bush made us bail THEM out, so that the great circle of globalization would not be broken. They did that so that guys like Shepard Smith could go to work with a smile on his face. The FEDS just kept pumping inflation, and now the middle class can’t afford to even go to the doctor.
To add to the despair, now we have to watch Obama frolic in the island sun, with Lord Branson. I’d take waterboarding any day, rather than to have to look at pictures of Obama’s daily vacations.
Here in St. Louis, back in the 1970s and 1980s, nothing ever seemed this bad. Most everyone had a job, and money. Back then, a medical emergency didn’t send them into bankruptcy. And as I look around my little city, I can’t believe how much the city has changed. And I watch with despair.
The decay happened ever so slowly. First, it was the strip mall up the street. There was a country-western bar where people danced, a drugstore, a Radio Shack, and dozens of little shops.
Now, the whole Mall is a government center. They built another mall five miles away, with hundreds of stores, which I’ve written about, and they got subsidized. Didn’t have to pay taxes.
Another mall which is about ten miles away, is now…another government complex.
Tell me..how many government complexes do we need? What? Does our government build these complexes to give the people jobs because there actually are no jobs? Was it decided long ago that most people would work for the government and the rest would have service jobs?
What genius thought that up?
North County has always been ruled by democrats. Pawn shops line the main drag now.
So, once again: you have Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, St. Louis, and so many, many, poor sections in the United States. How is President Trump going to be able to bring back commerce to these democratically destroyed areas again?
Decades ago, our Congressmen and Presidents, made packs with the bankers, to make the world a ‘better place.’ They just didn’t tell us they were going to use our money to do it, and start making a better place over there—not here.
Okay, depressing post. BUT…good news! Zuckerface is going to put computers in human brains…and I’m hoping he starts with his own head. Think of the money he’d make off his own brain cells.
One can still dream.
Steven Gern evidently started a big upset around the world, when he dared give his opinion on what he believes the Muslims would do if they caught him walking around their neighborhood.
They’d kill him.
And so he asked them, “If I would be killed walking in your country, why should I let you in mine?”
For that logical question, he got death threats: No doubt from not only the Iraqi’s but from many of the Obama fans who have placed radio ads which are playing every hour upon the hour on my local radio station.
The ad wants Americans to help support the poor women and children that have NO WHERE to go, and have been abused in Syria. The ad plays at your heartstrings for the helpless victim of war…etc. etc, and how St. Louis needs to welcome all these Syrian refugees who only want a place to call ‘home.’ Senator Claire McCaskill (D. MO) is behind these ads.
Why the democrats are trying to flood the country with Muslims is beyond any logic.
Muslims, will not assimilate. We will be made and forced to assimilate to them.
That’s why Steven Gern wins the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week. I wish more Marines would speak out about this reality.
Thanks Steven, your a great Patriot. Welcome home!
To see more of his video’s…go here.
Hollywood has always been used by the government to ‘shape’ the opinions and culture of the nation. It always has been there to help out the government. I never noticed it much before, because most of the time, the message was always patriotic.
Not so, anymore.
My husband gets so mad at me, because I can’t STAND it when I’m watching a TV program that I am really getting into, and then suddenly, the “politically correct” moment of propaganda hits me right in the face.
It’s written right into the script. Sometime cleverly, sometimes not. If they want brain wash you about global warming, or same-sex marriages, or men are bad, women are stronger, etc., after a while you just get numb to it, and accept it as “accepted” fact.
For instance, one of the reasons we’ve all pretty much accepted ‘same-sex’ marriage is because they literally FLOODED the TV and cable programs with gays kissing, loving, and being just like the rest of us–in other words, socially conditioning the masses to accept homosexuality as…normal.
I still don’t know why we have to witness men and women peeing, throwing up, and cussing every other word in movies…. but I suppose it’s to degrade us all.
When I saw the beginning of the Walking Dead last season, I was shocked. Megan, (who has his own posters) beheaded a few people in the first scene, and violently. (50 points if you can think of who in the world beheads people.)
Getting us used to it? Why?
BUT..last week I watched a program that simply shocked me, and probably nobody else.
In a nutshell: The scene was out of a TV Sitcom called, Incorporated. It’s basically a slight twist of The Hunger Games, where the rich work for the corporations, and the poor live…across the tracks.
One of the main characters, named Allison, is the rich daughter of one of the most powerful women in the country, who runs a major corporation. Allison is a doctor, who out of the kindness of her heart, opens a clinic in the poor section. She is sweet, and kind, and you instantly like her.
In this episode, she finds out that someone is stealing drugs at her clinic, and when she finds out who did it, he tells her he needs the money to support his family.
But “her” boss tells her she must set an example to the masses, so…wait for it…she cuts off his hand.
THAT’s what they do in Saudi Arabia and many Muslim countries if you steal.
After she cuts his hand, she soothes him with kind words, and covers his stub.
What is the message? She is a wonderful person, but she had to do it.
She goes to her mother and tells her if her mother shuts down her clinic she will have her shot. The message: She is brave. She is doing what she needs to do to help everyone. Even her mother is proud.
Frankly, to see this written in a script in America, meant to me, that we might be seeing more of this Sharia law brainwashing, in the future. It’s unacceptable on EVERY level. Most people have no clue that they are being engineered and brainwashed, because they do it in such an artistic way.
It’s actually pretty brilliant.
And I can’t understand why nobody is upset about it but me.
First, before you listen to this 83-year-old (remarkably good condition, don’t you think?) progressive crook from San Francisco, you might want to remember how she got her first leg into office. The Mayor of San Francisco, George Mascone, was assassinated in 1978, and Diane Feinstein, who was President of the Board of Supervisors at the time, took his place as Mayor, and served out his term.
From that position, she moved to the Senate, where she has remained since 1992.
Senator Dianne Feinstein is one very rich woman. She is worth well over $99 million.
Feinstein was criticized in 2009 when she introduced a bill directing $25 billion to the FDIC the day after the agency awarded her husband’s company a contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms. Feinstein and her husband have been tied to questionable dealings between the world’s largest commercial real estate firm and the U.S. Postal Service. Feinstein has also been accused of abusing her position to award her husband’s companies billions of dollars in military contracts.
Remember also that Feinstein is BIG on the government being able to spy on us, but NOT on her. And she hates guns. She would ban all guns if she could.
This interview should be watched for one thing: Democrats always repeat the same old talking points. They all have gone out and said that Trump’s executive orders on the temporary ban on people from terrorist countries are “unconstitutional.”
Of course, they are not. She know that. But watch how she skirts around this, by saying she never said that. And then said that a President should have “oversight” by all the other branches. What she means by all this, is that the Democrats plan to stall the nomination of Judge Corsuch to the Supreme Court. By saying she wants to make sure he is not ‘egregious’, and making sure he is in the ‘mainstream’, she is letting you know how she plans to attack and stall. The mainstream to Diane is abortion rights, gun control, and no bans on anybody coming into the country. The 9th Circuit Court (all liberals) will get the lawsuit from this idiot, Judge James Robart, from Seattle, and send it to the Supreme Court, where they hope, Judge Corsuch will still be in limbo, and then it will go BACK down to the Circuit Court, and full open borders will be “legal.”
At least that seems to be the plan.
But lets talk about what really IS egregious. She claims the “majority” of the people are in the streets, and Trump is dividing the country.
Do you see those riots in Iowa? Missouri? Nebraska? Nope. Everybody knows these are radical left-wing paid protesters, most of them, and not a word spoken against the violence we are witnessing from any liberal. The democrats have caused this violence by not accepting the outcome of the election, and by encouraging the people to ‘take to the streets.’ They can’t win any other way but through riots, lies, extortion, and name calling.
More egregiously, she called Trump’s executive orders ‘shock and awe’— trying to invoke in everybody’s mind the war terms President Bush used when he bombed Iraq. She claims he acted like a dictator.
The real dictator was Barack Obama, who signed more draconian and binding laws and orders than the last four Presidents.
And everybody knows Trump is just canceling Obama’s executive orders. It’s that simple.
Worst of all…she agrees with Trump that Iran should not be firing those missiles. Never once does she say that Obama helped Iran to become more powerful than ever. Who gave Iran the billions to BUILD those missiles?
So, Senator Feinstein plays the same old game: Blame the other guy. If there is a major terrorist attack, they will say that President Trump brought the REAL danger to our shores because he refused to “let them in.”
Muslims that is.
The real person who should never have been “let in”, in the first place, to ANY government position, was Senator Dianne Feinstein.
What do I really think of Dianne Feinstein? $%&&&%($&$&^%. and add to that…*$&^&. And go ahead and add a few of your own.
Nobody Gets Email
Since it’s Superbowl Sunday, and I don’t know about you, but I wish Lady Gaga would just sing…but we all know that we are going to be sort of ‘forced’ to watch Lady Gaga rip Trump apart at half time, so if you don’t want to be browbeaten with propaganda, I suggest you just go get something to eat.
I thought I’d post this email today especially….this is someone who Lady Gaga would NEVER declare a “hero”. All the more reason for us to.
Yes, he was white. God help us. (And God did.)
I didn’t know about this guy, but I thought everyone should, so…there you go.
Anyway, enjoy the game….Hopefully, it will be a good game.
(Thanks to my brother Gary.)
Van T. Barfoot died
Remember the guy who wouldn’t take the flag pole down on his Virginia property a while back? You might remember the news story several months ago about a crotchety old man in Virginia who defied his local Homeowners Association, and refused to take down the flag pole on his property along with the large American flag he flew on it. Now we learn who that old man was.
On June 15, 1919, Van T. Barfoot was born in Edinburg, Texas. That probably didn’t make news back then. But twenty-five years later, on May 23, 1944, near Carano, Italy, that same Van T. Barfoot, who had in 1940 enlisted in the U.S. Army, set out alone to flank German machine gun positions from which gunfire was raining down on his fellow soldiers.
His advance took him through a minefield but having done so, he proceeded to single-handedly take out three enemy machine gun positions, returning with 17 prisoners of war.
And if that weren’t enough for a day’s work, he later took on and destroyed three German tanks sent to retake the machine gun positions.
That probably didn’t make much news either, given the scope of the war, but it did earn Van T. Barfoot, who retired as a Colonel after also serving in Korea and Vietnam, a well-deserved Congressional Metal of Honor.
What did make the news…Was his Neighborhood Association’s’ quibble with how the 90-year-old veteran chose to fly the American flag outside his suburban Virginia home. Seen the HOA rules said it was OK to fly a flag on a house-mounted bracket, but, for decorum, items such as Barfoot’s 21-foot flagpole were “unsuitable”.
Van Barfoot had been denied a permit for the pole, but erected it anyway and was facing court action unless he agreed to take it down.
Then the HOA story made national TV, and the Neighborhood Association rethought its position and agreed to indulge this aging hero who dwelt among them.
“In the time I have left”, he said to the Associated Press, “I plan to continue to fly the American flag without interference.” As well he should.
And if any of his neighbors had taken a notion to contest him further, they might have done will to read his Metal of Honor citation first. Seems it indicates Mr. Van Barfoot wasn’t particularly good at backing down.
If you got this email and didn’t pass it on…guess what…I sent this to you, because I didn’t want MY butt kicked!
WE ONLY LIVE IN THE LAND OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE, AND BECAUSE OF OLD MEN LIKE VAN BARFOOT!
(And that’s why I’m rooting for the Patriots!)
Ticonderoga. That word had been going through my mind for no apparent reason for the last few weeks. I was fascinated by the mere sound: Ti…con…der…ro…ga. I would be looking at a sunset one day, and the word would pop up like a kernel looking for some butter…Ticonderoga.
So what?—You might say…well, tell me if this happens to you…
One night, I was finding some time where I had no chores, and so I went into my library, and thought…to myself, I’m going to just randomly grab one of those old National Geographic’s. After all, I have all the issues on the shelves that go to 1953. I stopped my subscription when the long time editor, Gilvert Hovey Grosvenor was retired, and the global warming idiots took control, but until then, I read every issue.
Ticonderoga was the last thing on my mind that night. So imagine my astonishment when I picked an issue by random, (August 1967) and started on the first article: From Sword to Scythe in Champlain Country, then …. opened it up and there it was: a picture of Fort Ticonderoga.
What are the odds?
So, here’s what I got out of this: Once upon a time,(in 1609) high up near the border of Canada, a French Explorer named Samuel de Champlain was helping out his Algonquian Indian friends, who had been fighting over the fishing rights of the waters. Their enemies were the Iroquois, who often helped the British. One day they were walking through the woods, and came upon three Iroquois chiefs, and Samuel shot them all dead with one shot from his arquebus. Even though the lake was named in his honor, the Five Nations never forgave Champlain, and 150 years later the Five Nations sided with the British in the French and Indian war, which the British won.
It was the French that built Fort Ticonderoga, but they made one big mistake: It’s location. Later it would prove to be an advantage for the British:
During the 1758 Battle of Carillon, 4,000 French defenders were able to repel an attack by 16,000 British troops near the fort. In 1759, the British returned and drove a token French garrison from the fort. During the American Revolutionary War, the fort again saw action in May 1775 when the Green Mountain Boys and other state militia under the command of Ethan Allen and Benedict Arnold captured it from the British in a surprise attack. Cannons captured were transported to Boston where their deployment forced the British to abandon the city in March 1776. The Americans held the fort until June 1777, when British forces under General John Burgoyne occupied high ground above it and threatened the Continental Army troops, leading them to withdraw from the fort and its surrounding defenses. The only direct attack on the fort took place in September 1777, when John Brown led 500 Americans in an unsuccessful attempt to capture the fort from about 100 British defenders.
Not only was it pretty far away from the river, the Fort was unprotected by the “high” ground above it.
What does this all have to do with anything?
Defense is probably the most important aspect of a country, or a life. The French should have made a better fort….picked a better location.
President Trump is right to build a wall, in brick, stone, and manpower. While the wacko left wants us to all believe that all men are created equal, and will all get along, we know reality. Make sure you are on high ground. America should always take the high ground.
Ticonderoga is Iroquois: It means: “It is the junction of two waterways.” Not far from my house is the junction of two waterways…the Mississippi and the Missouri…TICONDEROGA!
It’s really a beautiful sound. I think it should be right up there with the world “Geronimo!”
And I still have NO idea why I was lead to even look into it. Somebody up there is…just having too much fun.
