Franken Rose Photo Illustrates Establishment Corruption

Franken Rose PhotoThese two buddies enjoying a joke (about women?) perfectly illustrate a big reason for this nation’s problems. A society can’t survive if it is based on lies.

Sen. Al Franken and newly unemployed commentator Charlie Rose for years have been setting social mores and controlling the information we have been receiving much of which was out-and-out falsehood. Matthew Shepard was murdered because he was gay? George W. Bush was a racist? Women make 77 cents on the dollar compared to men? Donald Trump colluded with the Russians?

Etc. etc. etc.

All were repeated as truths by the crowd to which these guys belonged and all were lies. One of Shepard’s murderers, it turns out, was a fellow drug dealer and occasional lover. Homophobia had nothing to do with it.  Bush, of course, was governor when James Byrd’s murderers received the death penalty. And women make the same amount as men for the same job, workload and skill level. 

And while there is no reason to think President Trump colluded with the Russians there is plenty of reason to think his cool-crowd-connected opponent did.

Of course, unless you get your info from alternative sources such as talk radio or independent websites, you are not going to know this.

And now it turns out that Franken and Rose and whole lot of others were self-centered pigs who were laughing up their sleeves at the truth for the last four decades.

Well, it paid well.

Charles Manson Dies 45 Years Late

Charles Manson Dies 45 Years Late — Charles Manson is dead and it’s 45 years too late.

I was eight years old in the summer of 1969 when the Manson cult killed nine innocent people. It horrified me and I’d put my fingers in my ears when the story was reported on the  radio.

But as my understanding of the world then came from TV shows where the bad guys would be caught and justice done, I had faith that would happen.

And they did catch the bad guys.

Justice, though, was never done.

Manson and three of his followers — others would be convicted of other murders — were found guilty in 1971 and received the death penalty. The Supreme Court, however, bizarrely ruled the next year that the death penalty as it existed was unconstitutional and commuted all death sentences to life in prison.

And so Manson live to an old age with the cool crowd calling him a hero. Rolling Stone magazine, which hopefully soon goes the way of Manson, portrayed him as a visionary and expressed sympathy for him. Hippie underground newspapers named him Man of the Year.  Chic radical Bernadine Dohrn expressed awe and admiration.  Ms. Dohrn and her rapey husband Bill Ayers would go on to become Barack Obama’s mentors.

Pop singers adopt his name and his image can still be found on t-shirts.

I really am a fan of Pope Francis but he is dead wrong on the death penalty. The world — and America — would be exponentially better off if that piece of human debris kept his date with the gas chamber 45 years ago.

Cuban Bicycle Diary Shows Socialism Fails

Cuban Bicycle Diary — A friend has forwarded us the below article:

TRIP TO CUBA . . .well worth the read!

A 77 yr. old guy goes to Europe, Canada, Mexico and now Cuba for bicycle road trips.  I  thought you might enjoy reading his report of his bicycle trip to Cuba:

On February 1st I flew to Atlanta, met some friends  and we flew to Cancun, Mexico.  We spent 4 days there, mostly touring  the Mayan ruins of Tulum and Chichen Itza and getting ready for the next  part of the adventure.  Seven more people flew in and we all boarded a Mexican airline, Interjet, and flew to Havana for a week of bicycle riding in Cuba.

Cuba, where nothing works, including the people.  Unemployment is 48% and of those who do work, 8 out of every 10 work for the government.  Before heading to the western part of the island, we spent a night in Havana at the Riviera Classic, the finest hotel at the time.  20 stories with 3 elevators, but only one worked.   Contrary to what I found in the rest of  the country, my shower only had hot water.  Turn the knobs all you want, but you only got hot, scalding water.

The stories about the old cars is quite true, but many of those cars are used to take tourists on tours of the city.  $30.00 gets you 2 hours in 1952 Cadillac convertible and you can pile in as many people in as you want.  Old Chevys seem to be the most  popular and a few are quite nicely restored.  They all fell in the 1941 to 1957 range.  I saw nothing newer than a 57.  By restored, I  mean they look good on the outside but, as our Cuban tour guide said, there would not be a V8 under the hood.  The original had failed decades ago and with no parts to fix it, other means had to be found.  Generally that involved putting a 4 cylinder Russian made diesel in and making the necessary changes to get it to fit and mate up with an unknown transmission.

Outside Havana, the country is still in the 19th century.  Many people walk, but equally as many use horses, both to ride and to pull carts.  I saw wagons pulled by oxen on the highway.  We traveled by motor coach, stayed in crude motels, and ate in restaurants – all owned by the government.  Staying clean was a challenge.  In the public restrooms, washing your hands was interesting.  You need 3 things to wash your hands — water, soap, towel to dry.  Well, the towel was your shirt or pants, because there never were any towels.  In 1/3 of the toilets there was no water and in one case there was a lady standing beside the sink with a bottle of water to pour over your hands.  In an equal number of places, there was no soap.

If you thought not having soap and water in the restroom was a problem, imagine not having a toilet SEAT.  Yep, no toilet seat and it wasn’t just confined to public facilities.  One of  the rooms we stayed in had no toilet seat, which was matched by the fact  there was no toilet paper.  In its place, somebody had carefully torn individual sheets of toilet paper from a roll and placed them on the back of  the toilet.

Free health care and education is one of the things Castro brought with his revolution.  The health care is generally limited to the bigger cities.  Our guide told us that a taxi driver in Havana earned more in tips each day than a medical doctor earned  in salary in one month.  Oh, and the doctor can be arrested and jailed if he attempts to treat people on the side for extra money.  Education is free, but the reality is that most people cannot afford to stay in school.  Our tour guide was the exception.  He completed college and got a Master’s degree in computer technology, but can’t find a job in that field, so he conducts tours.

We visited a tobacco farm, where we had the opportunity to purchase genuine Cuba cigars for $3.25.  The farm had been in this man’s family for 3 generations, but only recently had actual title been put back in his name.  The  government claimed it after the revolution.   After harvest, the  government takes 90% of the tobacco, leaving the farmer with just 10% for his own personal use.  He chose to demonstrate how to hand roll a cigar, then sell it to tourists.  I asked our guide if all farmers lost 90% of their crop to the government.  His reply, “Oh no, vegetable farmers only give up 60% of their crop.”

The roads looked like they had been carpet bombed with huge pot holes everywhere.  Add that to the very steep hills we encountered and it made for slow biking.  While I am no speed demon, one day I averaged just 4.5 MPH as I attempted to find bits of pavement between the holes in the road.  In many cases, there was no road, just dirt.  When trucks went past, we were engulfed in a storm of dust and exhaust fumes.  A few of the  trucks were leftover Russian military vehicles.  Personal  transportation in the rural area was provided by stake bodied trucks.   People would stand by the side of the road and climb aboard when such a  truck came by.  The fare was around 8 cents and you stood packed in the bed of the truck with several dozen other people.

Those on welfare receive $25 a month, plus a ration of beans, rice and  cooking oil.  The money came from the Cuban government, but the Russians provided the food.  Each month a supply cargo ship docks with beans, rice and cooking oil sent by the Russians.  Speaking of them,  the Cuban version of the Missile Crisis is quite different from what we heard in the US.

Glad I went, but have no desire to return.  Cuba makes our inner cities look like paradise and the poverty is staggering.  After 2 weeks abroad, we flew home and I spent the night in a Hampton Inn at the Atlanta airport, before catching an early morning flight back to Seattle.  Took the longest hot water shower ever after having a cheeseburger, fries and two gin & tonics for dinner.  I was really glad to be back.

Dedicated to all Bernie Sanders supporters and others who believe “Government Socialism” is so much better than our country that was built on “Capitalism.”

Google Searches Drop After Damore Firing

Google Searches Drop After Damore Firing — Google searches are way down here.  In late July, 95 percent of searches for stories on this site were via Google and this overwhelming percentage held through early August.

On Aug. 7, Google fired engineer James Damore after his internal memo warning of a poisonously politically correct culture at the corporate giant went public. Along with causing anger at the action’s hypocrisy and injustice, it woke many to the claims that Google was actively seeking to harm websites that didn’t share their political views, something we find easy to believe.

For the next several days, Google continued to dominate. On Aug. 13, however, something unprecedented occurred. More arrived here via other search engines — mostly DuckDuckGo, Bing and Yahoo — than Google.

Google soon regained it’s prime spot but no longer did it overwhelm. Since Aug. 13, only about 57 percent of those finding us were by Google.

Oh, and more are finding us via search engines, strangely enough.

We happily use Paoli Pa.-based DuckDuckGo for our searches. We have no idea what their politics are but we trust them to be fair.

Here is a link to a BusinessInsider interview with Damore which is worth watching.

James Fields Acquittal What If

James Fields Acquittal What If — James Fields Jr., the driver of the car that killed Heather Heyer during Saturday’s riots in Charlottesville, Va, may be the most hated man in America. Media outlets are calling him sans qualification a “neo Nazi” and “white supremacist”. The President, himself, has been backed into calling him a terrorist and murderer not necessarily to the joy of the prosecutors who are going to find it that much harder to find an untainted jury.

It would be the ultimate display of hipster irony if the progressives broke into the jail and hanged him from a lamppost.

Fields is charged with second degree murder, three counts of malicious wounding and failure to stop in an accident that resulted in death.

FindLaw.com says second degree murder is ordinarily defined as: 1) an intentional killing that is not premeditated or planned, nor committed in a reasonable “heat of passion”; or 2) a killing caused by dangerous conduct and the offender’s obvious lack of concern for human life. 

From the videos all of us have seen, it certainly fits but here’s a thought that will make certain heads spin: what if he’s acquitted?  What if his motivation wasn’t to cause harm but to flee danger as some tweets at the time seem to indicate? If he can show this, he will be acquitted of the murder charge and probably everything else.

So hipsters, progressives and media pundits, get your torches and clubs and rope and break into that jail now if you want done what you’ve already made your minds up about must be done.

Or else just ask what Clarence Darrow would do and let a trial happen. If Fields is found guilty he’ll be punished as deserved.

Racism Definition, Anti-American AntiFa And Honest Abe

Racism Definition,  Anti-American AntiFa And Honest Abe — The hate-group Antifa is portrayed by crony corporatists,  establishment media and Deep State Republicans as opponents of racism and defenders of the oppressed despite its funding by mega-oppressor George Soros and despite it being on The New Jersey Department of Homeland Security’s watchlist.

Please recognize that this group is a bad thing. They are modern-day brownshirts filled with hate and motivated by a desire to rule. They are worse than modern-day Klansmen and Nazis in that the modern-day Klan and Nazi Party are run by incompetents that would make Elmer Fudd look smart.

Antifa is run by pros and has a well-planned agenda.  “. . .fascisti si dividono in due categorie: i fascisti e gli antifascisti”* as the great Ennio Flaiano said.

Few people called “racists” are. Racism is the practice of defining ethnicities, categorizing human beings in them and then declaring certain categories don’t deserve civil rights. It’s a vile thing and the vast majority of Americans consider it such.

If someone should call you a racist for holding a political opinion or liking a certain candidate, make them define the word. Odds are they won’t even try. Antifa and its fellow-travelers want the definition to be arbitrary. They want it to be used only when it advances their agenda without people thinking about it.

For the snowflakes who may not been given an accurate depiction of American history in the public schools here is how a great man suggested we unify this country after a bloody war:

Fellow-Countrymen:

At this second appearing to take the oath of the Presidential office there is less occasion for an extended address than there was at the first. Then a statement somewhat in detail of a course to be pursued seemed fitting and proper. Now, at the expiration of four years, during which public declarations have been constantly called forth on every point and phase of the great contest which still absorbs the attention and engrosses the energies of the nation, little that is new could be presented. The progress of our arms, upon which all else chiefly depends, is as well known to the public as to myself, and it is, I trust, reasonably satisfactory and encouraging to all. With high hope for the future, no prediction in regard to it is ventured.

On the occasion corresponding to this four years ago all thoughts were anxiously directed to an impending civil war. All dreaded it, all sought to avert it. While the inaugural address was being delivered from this place, devoted altogether to saving the Union without war, insurgent agents were in the city seeking to destroy it without war—seeking to dissolve the Union and divide effects by negotiation. Both parties deprecated war, but one of them would make war rather than let the nation survive, and the other would accept war rather than let it perish. And the war came.

One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the southern part of it. These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war. To strengthen, perpetuate, and extend this interest was the object for which the insurgents would rend the Union even by war, while the Government claimed no right to do more than to restrict the territorial enlargement of it. Neither party expected for the war the magnitude or the duration which it has already attained. Neither anticipated that the cause of the conflict might cease with or even before the conflict itself should cease. Each looked for an easier triumph, and a result less fundamental and astounding. Both read the same Bible and pray to the same God, and each invokes His aid against the other. It may seem strange that any men should dare to ask a just God’s assistance in wringing their bread from the sweat of other men’s faces, but let us judge not, that we be not judged. The prayers of both could not be answered. That of neither has been answered fully.

The Almighty has His own purposes. “Woe unto the world because of offenses; for it must needs be that offenses come, but woe to that man by whom the offense cometh.” If we shall suppose that American slavery is one of those offenses which, in the providence of God, must needs come, but which, having continued through His appointed time, He now wills to remove, and that He gives to both North and South this terrible war as the woe due to those by whom the offense came, shall we discern therein any departure from those divine attributes which the believers in a living God always ascribe to Him? Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman’s two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said “the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.”

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.

A screen shot of shooting suspect James Hodgkinson’s Facebook page in which he says “Time to destroy Trump & Co.”

H8ers Gonna Kill — A politically motivated attack on Republican congressmen at a baseball field in Virginia this morning, June 14, shows that those with large platforms better be as careful with what they say as they demand average folk to be with firearms.

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA1) was wounded  and is in stable condition. Two Capitol Police officers were also wounded with non-life threatening injuries as was Zack Barth, who is legislative correspondent for Congressman Roger Williams (R-TX25).

Scalise is the third-ranking member of the House of Representatives.

The shooter, who was killed by the Capitol Police security detail,  has been identified as James T. Hodgkinson, 66,  of Belleville, Ill.

Hodgkinson reportedly inquired if those on the field were Republicans before opening fire with a rifle. His Facebook page promiently features Socialist-progressive Bernie Sanders. On March 22, he posted:  Trump is a Traitor. Trump Has Destroyed Our Democracy. It’s Time to Destroy Trump & Co.

If one does not think that bloody images of our president presented by people praised by our elites don’t give license for violence then they are either delusional fools or employees at establishment media outlets.

The most dangerous person is one who thinks he’s inherently good and that fits the bill for self-proclaimed progressives. This type does not feel any need to try to understand those who disagree and finds himself able to justify any action whether it be slander, theft, vandalism, sexual abuse, and murder.

Free Speech, Political Correctness And Hate

Free Speech, Political Correctness And Hate — Attention-seeker Kathy Griffin who some call a comedian circulated a photo of herself holding our President’s bloody head.

This isn’t speech to be defended. Speech to be defended concerns telling objective truths i.e. Nigger Jim was a character in Huckleberry Finn, and expressing opinions i.e. the theory of evolution is wrong.

Speech that unambiguously incites violence, much less murder, must not be defended. Note the word “unambiguously”. Certain snowflakes, who are ironically far more likely to be fans of Ms. Griffin than the rest of us, would claim that saying MAGA or that homosexuality is sinful incites violence. That is the Kafkaesque sea in which they swim.

In the 1960s and 1970s, funnymen like Redd Foxx, Don Rickles and Mel Brooks used ethnic humor in ways that would give the children who now set our social standards vapors. There was no hate in what they said, though. One always felt they actually liked the people they teased.

That is not the case for the “edgy” garbage that passes for “humor’ today. Holding the bloody head of a living person can only be construed as hate.

Fear Not Nihilists, Yon Republicans

Fear Not Nihilists, Yon Republicans — For any Republican legislator who feels a need for a shot of spine concerning the protests at GOP town halls, it has been conclusively revealed that those causing the disruptions are not their constituents but organized — and often paid — outsiders.

“No, Donny, these men are nihilists, there’s nothing to be afraid of,” as Walter Sobchak would say.

Here’s the audio as obtained by 96.5 KPEL of Lafayette, La.

Liberal Women Weak And Meek –For those who have long believed that liberal “progressive” Democrat-voting women were not “strong and independent” but weak, stupid, and easily cowed hypocrites, well, it looks your instincts were right.

Premier Kathleen Wynne knows her place in Sharia it seems.

Kathleen Wynne is the premier of Ontario. She is a lesbian, ultra-liberal and an outspoken feminist. After a mass shooting at a Quebec City mosque on Jan. 29 that left six dead and 19 injured — how did that happen anyway, don’t they have gun control in Canada?? — she decided to show solidarity by visiting a mosque in Toronto.

So what happened? They made the province’s leading politician put on a head covering and sit on a rickety folding chair way back in a corner well behind the men. If a woman is in front of a man as he is praying, his prayer is invalidated, after all.

And of course, unlike a pro-life conservative woman, she meekly accepted.Liberal Women Weak And Meek

Oh, and the subject of the sermon was the evils of homosexuality.

She has yet to lead a demonstration against it.
