★★★★ The Ross Rant The author is Joel Ross, Principal, Citadel Realty Advisors, NYC. Mr. Ross publishes the Ross Rant, a $300 per year subscription newsletter, which makes predictions based upon economic data. You should find his article stunningly accurate. He concludes with the following sentence, "Nicky Haley will be elected president in 2024 She will be the first woman president. Mark it down." His story
★★★★ The Famous leaked GOOGLE video presented by Breitbart is here. A video recorded by Google shortly after the 2016 presidential election reveals an atmosphere of panic and dismay amongst the tech giant's leadership, coupled with a determination to thwart both the Trump agenda and the broader populist movement emerging around the globe. Co-founder Sergey Brin can be heard comparing Trump supporters to fascists and extremists. Brin argues that like other extremists, Trump voters were motivated by "boredom," which he says in the past has led to fascism and communism. The Story & Video
★★★ Evergreen State sees 'catastrophic' drop in enrollment this fall after social justice meltdown Evergreen State College enrollment plummeted after fallout from the controversial "Day of Absence" in May 2017 when all white people were asked to leave the campus. The publicly funded college - committed to social justice - became the poster child of a campus overrun by hyper-political correctness when students shut down the campus and shouted down then-evolutionary biology professor Bret Weinstein for merely questioning the event kicking white people off campus. The Story & Video
★★★ The Circus of Resistance The resistance to Donald Trump was warring on all fronts recently. Democratic senators vied with pop-up protestors in the U.S. Senate gallery to disrupt and, to derail the confirmation hearings of Supreme Court. U.S. Senator Cory Booker played Spartacus, Elizabeth Warren, who still insists she is of Native American heritage, called for the president to be removed by invoking the 25th Amendment. Barack Obama decided that ex-presidents should attack current presidents, and thereby reminded the country why Trump was elected. The Story
★★★★★ The liberal world order established by the United States a little over seven decades ago is collapsing. This should not be surprising as it was always a historical anomaly. Less than 80 years ago, liberalism outside North America was on its death bed. Dictatorships were thriving, the great powers were fighting their second global conflagration, and acts of unspeakable inhumanity were being committed in the very heart of Western Judeo-Christian civilization and in the ancient civilizations of the East. The very idea of progress seemed absurd. The Story
★★★ John McCain, Liberal, Socialist Hero John McCain was a far more interesting, colorful and controversial man than most Americans and no journalists know. He was a man driven by two ghosts: His father and grandfather. Both were four-star Admirals so John's appointment to the US Naval Academy was his destiny, but John McCain graduated 894th in his class of 899 students. He was known for being wild and a member of a student group calling themselves "The Bad Bunch." His Story
★★★ Political Correctness: An Australian newspaper which found itself at the centre of a race row over its cartoonist's depiction of Serena Williams' temper tantrum. Plus bigger than the NFL, is "the mother of all meltdowns." That was the New York Post's apt description of Serena Williams's hyperemotional stoppage of play in the second set of the U.S. Open tennis final between her and Naomi Osaka. It was one of those incidents that transcended Twitter. People grabbed the phone."Did you see that!!!???" Video & Stories
The difference between the US and Canada can be found in each countries profound statements: - C.K.

★★★★ I Am Part of the Resistance in the Trump Administration.
I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations. - - The most likely author, based on the op-ed's content and style, is the U.S. ambassador to Russia, Jon Huntsman. In 2016, he made the same points for and against Trump amongst other things.... The OpEd and Suspect
★★★ Neuralink, a company you may not have heard of, happens to be Elon Musk neurotechnology company and part of his family of companies (Tesla, Tesla Solar and SpaceX.) Well, according to Musk, without the creation of the Neural Lace technology, a tool to link human brains with computers, humans will be unable to keep pace with the rapid advances in Artificial Intelligence. He says that there is a good chance that "humans may become the intellectual equivalent of the house cat." When he was asked why he founded Neuralink, his response; the "existential risk is too high not to." The Story & Video
★★★★★ Will this be the smoking gun Trump is waiting for?
Justice Department official Bruce Ohr told lawmakers that the FBI doubted the credibility of the anti-Trump dossier. The disclosure is the latest twist in the complicated saga of Mr. Ohr whose wife Nellie, is an employee of Fusion GPS, the firm that was paid by Hillary Clinton's campaign and the Democratic National Committee to compile the dossier.

★★★ The Invention That Changed the World. Sixty years ago, Jack Kilby from from Great Bend, Kansas, created one of the greatest inventions, in the history of mankind. Kilby recently had started at Texas Instruments as an electrical engineer. Most everyone left on a mandated summer break, but he stayed in the lab and worked tinkering with a transistor, and came up with the greatest invention since fire - or maybe indoor plumbing - his integrated circuit.

★★★ NEW MONEY. Belarusian designer Andrey August has turned our new Federal Reserve Notes 90 degrees. When they become available is uncertain. The only major change is Jackson is no longer on the $20 - he must offend someone. The Jefferson $2 is uncertain. It is U.S. government policy that all designs of U.S currency remain legal tender, regardless of when they were issued. This policy includes all denominations of Federal Reserve notes, from 1914 to the present. Click image for enlargement. For current design info and history click here.
★★★★★ Getting Rid of Trump Is All That Matters to Mueller
Donald Trump represents the gravest threat to their lifestyle, to their careers, to their standing, to their daily contentment and happiness, the greatest threat they've ever faced. He is specifically what they despise. He is specifically what they have arranged. I mean, these people in the Washington establishment thought they had it all taken care of, that Trump could not happen, that an outsider knowing so little about how Washington works and using so few people and resources from inside the Beltway, no way could anybody ever beat them. They thought that they had a closed system that nobody could infiltrate, that nobody could come in and win. by Rush Limbaugh
★★★★ From a 'real' spy's perspective. Brennan's mediocrity.
Retired CIA operations and case officer Charles Faddis, writes an open letter to John Brennan. Charles is the author of "Beyond Repair: The Decline And Fall Of The CIA". Lets hope his message gets out. And they all sign.
★★★ A Professor's contract with students: 'Drop the class immediately if you are triggered by free speech'
James Pesta, an associate professor of English at the University of Wisconsin, has taken a novel approach when it comes to dealing with the increasing number of students railing against academic ideas they don't agree with - a two-page contract given to his students on the first day of class that asks them to drop the course if they are "triggered" or offended by certain ideas or beliefs. And they all sign.

★★★ Pope Francis Rewrites Catholicism ... and the Bible? Pope Francis has changed the Catholic catechism. After 2,000 years of teaching that a moral use of capital punishment for murder is consistent with Catholic teaching, the pope announced that the catechism, the church fathers and St. Thomas Aquinas, among the other great Catholic theologians, were all wrong. And God and the Bible? They're wrong, too. Pope Francis, the product of [Jesuit and] Latin American liberation theology....  Dennis Prager's thoughts.
★★★ Are we alone in the universe? Add climate change to the equation and you come up with the relatively new field of study known of Astrobiology and whether alien societies could overcome the climate change their advances would have created. One would have to assume; 1) our global warming is man made and 2) that Alien Life would follow the same path as mans evolution. A cutting edge hypothesis [from our science section].  by National Geographic.
★★★★ Man Made Earthquakes in OLKAHOMA. Following an earlier story on Red Tide, we bring you another example of a man made event wreaking havoc. There is no disputing FRACKING causes earthquakes, although the petroleum / fracking industry will say otherwise. In 2008 there were 2 earthquakes in Okla. Fracking began in 2009. By 2015 there were there were 887! And this has nothing to do with Fracking - give us a break!      The story, chart & video
★★★★★ Why the Left Is So Afraid of Jordan Peterson?
The Canadian psychology professor's stardom is evidence that leftism is on the decline - and deeply vulnerable. Two years ago, I saw one of my teenage sons watching a strange YouTube video on the television. "What is that?" I asked. He turned to me earnestly and explained, "It's a psychology professor at the University of Toronto talking about Canadian law." "Huh?" I said, but he had already turned back to the screen. I figured he had finally gotten to the end of the internet, and this was the very last thing on it.  Caitlin Flanagan Explains
★★★★ Yes, Red tide has been documented in the 1500's by the Spanish explores. But no one can say a century of Florida development, that include the well manicured homes of our local keys, and inland gated resort communities with their myriad of golf courses, all with fertilizer runoff into our canals and creeks, in no way impacts red tide. Add to that the fertilizer runoff from agriculture that finds is way into our costal rivers that empty into the gulf haven't exasperated a hundred fold what other wise might be a trivial natural event.

★★★★ Google tracks your movements, like it or not.
Google wants to know where you go so badly that it records your movements even when you explicitly tell it not to. Computer-science researchers at Princeton confirmed these findings at the AP's request. Google's support page states: "You can turn off Location History at any time. With Location History off, the places you go are no longer stored." That isn't true. Even with Location History paused, some Google apps automatically store time-stamped location data without asking. (It's possible, although laborious, to delete it .) An AP Exclusive
★★★ This is why we need a 'Space Force'
A mysterious Russian satellite has exhibited "very abnormal behavior" in its orbit, leading the Pentagon to worry that it could be some kind of weapon. A top State Department official warned Tuesday that Russian "space apparatus inspector" satellites are behaving unlike anything seen before, and that current international inspection protocol makes it virtually impossible to know whether they could actually be space weapons or not.  The Story.
★★★★★ Free speech is under siege, sending many to the Intelectual Dark Web. What is the I.D.W. and who is a member of it? It's hard to explain, which is both its beauty and its danger. Most simply, it is a collection of iconoclastic thinkers, academic renegades and media personalities who are having a rolling conversation - on podcasts, YouTube and Twitter, and in sold-out auditoriums - that soundss unlike anything else happening, at least publicly, in the culture right now. Feeling largely locked out of legacy outlets, they are rapidly building their own mass media channels.     NYT OpEd & Dave Rubin Video
★★★★★ Giuliani: Mueller & Strzok are Brennan Puppets, "He Should Be In Front Of A Grand Jury".
Rudy Giuliani, attorney for President Donald Trump, said in an interview with Sean Hannity, fired FBI agent Peter Strzok along with former CIA Director John Brennan have played a much bigger role than the media wants to admit." "First of all, Brennan was there at the very beginning......    "HE IS THE QUARTERBACK".    The Story & Video.

★★★★ NASA's Parker Solar Probe launches on a mission to study the sun and its dangers
This is our third article on this very real possibility - which deals with the worst case scenario. In the others the emphasis was on an electrical grid take-down by hackers, leaving only motor driven and battery devices working. This is the ultimate when nothing electrical works - not even your car. 100 years ago it's impact would be slight, today it would doom society as we know it, leaving few survivors.  Washington Post.
★★★ Explaining American Leftists: Part I
A great many Americans and virtually all of the mainstream media descend further and further into irrational and immoral hysteria - regularly calling the president of the United States and all of his supporters Nazis, white supremacists and the like. They regularly harass Republicans where they eat, shop and live - ending family ties and lifelong friendships. What is going on? How does one explain them?.    Dennis Prager tries.
★★★★★ FEINSTEIN'S SPY
California Senator Dianne Feinstein, Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary has employed a Chinese Spy - 20 year staffer Chinese American Russell Lowe. Ironically she is the senior Democrat reporting to the justice department on President Trump's supposed dealings with Russia.    Still Breaking story & Lou Dobbs Video

UPDATE: Feinstein's ties to China Go Way Deeper Than the Spy Story implications, as her Chinese connection proves lucrative for Feinstein and her husband. Federalist Story

UPDATE II: Feinstein, a tenured Democrat gets a pass by congress on her staff Chinese Spy of 20 years. The reaction of the mainstream media? Barely a peep not unlike the other myriad of Democrats recently. Feinstein's reaction, "No big deal"! - "It's plenty serious," a Justice Department official said "Focusing on the driver function alone, .. was among the most trusted because among other things he heard everything that was discussed in the car." Wash Post Story
★★★★★ What would we do without electricity?
Commonly Called a Black Sky Event. 1) Imagine not seeing the all too familiar site of folks staring at their iPhone. 2) Electricity is humanity's life blood especially if you are on dialysis. 3) If you are fortunate to have a generator, where do you get gas? Gas stations run on electricity too. There are those, including this writer, that see a Black Sky Event as the cause of social colapse. mankind has become dependent on electricity as much as the oxygen we breathe. (Part II of the story below)    Not too far away.
★★★★★ The WSJ spells it out like it is in this Freightening Article
The threat to the U.S. electric grids is so serious that in June a group of presidential advisers said the country needs to prepare for a "catastrophic power outage" possibly caused by a cyberattack. The NIAC and chief executives of companies engaged in critical industries, said resources need to be stockpiled in community enclaves to prevent mass migrations of desperate people. "They've had access to the button but they haven't pushed it," said Jonathan Homer, Homeland Security's chief of industrial control system analysis.    S c a r y
Young people are more likely to be liberal than conservative because they haven't lived long enough to know what DOES good,,, but they do know what FEELS good. - -Dennis Prager
★★★ Anarchy Breaks Out in Portland, With the Mayor's Blessing.
A sample of things to come that we've seen before. So many of our Mayors ore going off the deep end. A incident in Portland sounds like a replay of S.F. where the police were ordered away by Democratic Mayor Ted Wheeler, who doubles as police commissioner. "I do not want the @PortlandPolice to be engaged or sucked into a conflict, particularly from a federal agency".    You have to read this.
★★★ For the Elite, Even a Sunset is a Harbinger of Doom. There is no end to progressive pessimism. Roy Scranton is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of Notre Dame and Army veteran of the Iraq War. He is author of a New York Times, essay "Raising My Daughter in a Doomed World." He is also a man in need of an intervention. The birth of his little girl allegedly inspired not the mix of joy and trepidation that most new fathers are familiar with, but a wave of angst. It reads as though it were a written by activists who took turns describing everything that kept them up at night. The story
★★★★ America's Next Civil War Will Be Worse Than Our Last. Of that we can be sure The difference between the America of today and the America of what seems like just yesterday is that we once had a common culture. As recently as 1990, Ken Burns could make a Civil War documentary for PBS and let historian Shelby Foote wax eloquent on the martial prowess of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest - something that now would likely get them both tarred, feathered, and Twitter-banned. The story
★★★ An SRQPATS First - an article on health. Actually two in one. One on How to Minimize Pancreatic Cancer Risk in this world of obesity, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, all of which have risen to epidemic levels in recent years, are linked to pancreatic cancer. The second: Too much sitting can kill you, with two of the symptoms being obesity & cancer. For men & women
★★★★ This antenna is the centerpiece of a $50 million station built by the Chinese military in Argentina! Warning: The Subject of China's expansion has been posted a couple of times here. The isolated base is one of the most striking symbols of Beijing's long push to transform Latin America & the Caribbean and will shape its future for generations to come, often in ways that directly undermine the United States' political, economic and strategic power in the region.
We wont be here but our children will
★★★★ America avoided a disaster. Warning: This story could give you nightmares. Just weeks after her failed presidential campaign, Hillary and Bill were seen at a cozy restaurant in NY with Harvey Weinstein reminding us of the sort of individuals she has chosen to surround herself with. "How does FBI Director Peter Strzok sound to you? Supreme Court Justice Eric Holder, NIA Director Comey......"
The Nightmarish Possibility,
★★★★ Comey and Strzok -- the two key players in the scheme to clear Clinton and frame Trump. In one of the more stunning revel-ations contained in the report compiled by the Justice Dept's watchdog, former FBI Director James Comey claimed he doesn't remember the moment he decided - and put down in writing -- that Hillary Clinton had committed crimes. Yet we know that Comey composed a statement summarizing Clinton's mishandling of classified documents, concluding that she was "grossly negligent," and he used the exact phrase not once, but twice.  The Book & Preview by Gregg Jarrett.
★★★ De Blasio's Dystopia. On occasion, the SRQPATS will include a story about the long controlled Democrat states of New York and California and their officials. This as a reminder of where the progressive democrats will take us. As an ex-NY'er it saddens me to see this about NY, but at least it hasn't gone completely stark raving mad as has California.  This is what a socialist New York looks like.
★★ A Postscript to the Obama presidency, and it's about a man named Harold. Now, Harold was a bright kid. He grew up in America. He went to school and had a bright future ahead of him. Harold was full of life but was cut short in a violent moment. While few people had ever heard of Harold before his death, many did afterward.  
Here is his story.
The press should be not only a collective propagandist and a collective agitator, but also a collective organizer of the masses. - Vladimir Lenin
★★★ Remember Radio?    First AM (amplitude modulation) then FM (frequency modulation)? Well if you still listen its probably just in your car and to the local stations of your region. I still listen rather faithfully to AM radio but not to 77WABC's 50,000 watt tower of Rock & Roll's power on the east coast. I listen to Talk Radio, but only on a radio when I'm in my car. And it's more often than not on my iPhone using one of it's apps. And I dont choose a station, I choose the person I want to listen to prety much at anytime I want.   - S.E.    The App.
★★★★★ TRUMP HAS BEEN SET UP, FRAMED AND RELENT-LESSLY PERSECUTED BY THE AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY    The frenzied furor and fomented outrage over President Donald Trump's reluctance to express blind trust for our "intelligence community" defy reason and reality. In their choreographed cries of contempt for Mr. Trump, the "left's" increasingly shrill proclamations of political apocalypse make "Chicken Little" look rational. Power is the only thing leftists worship, and they are unraveling in front of our eyes without it.    The Story
★★★★★ 34 years ago, Soviet defector Yuri Bezmenov, chillingly & accurately predicted how america would decline.
President Trump was almost universally panned for the press conference that followed the meeting with Russia's President Putin in Helsinki. He was seen as capitulating to Russia by refusing to confront Putin on the issue of interference in American elections. In fact, Trump seemed to be saying he doesn't support the findings of his own intel agencies and instead prefers to take the Russian leader at his word. Even if he's changed his tune under the backlash.    The Story
★★★★★ Political conservatives tend to be happier than liberals.
A finding that has been labeled the 'happiness gap' in media reporting." A team of psychologists from the University of Southern California (USC) wrote in the new paper which compiled survey results from more than 50,000 participants in 16 countries, people who identified as political conservatives were more likely to find meaning and satisfaction in their lives than liberals were.

★★★★ District Judges Try to Run the Country. When a federal district court in Texas issued a nationwide injunction in 2015 that halted the Obama's amnesty program for illegal-alien parents of U.S. citizens, many on the right cheered. Two years later, when a federal district court in Maryland issued a nationwide injunction that blocked President Trump's efforts to restrict transgender people serving in the military, it was the left's turn to celebrate. Ironically in recent years national injunctions have become all the rage, even though many say they're unconstitutional.    The story

★★★★ The New york Times Slammed For 'Embarrassing,' 'Homophobic' Trump-Putin Gay Romance Video.
Leftists and Democrats are simply and openly furious over our Presidents summit with Putin in Helsinki. Rule number one of the Liberal Media Rule Book is "There are no rules on what is an acceptable way to criticize Donald Trump," which would explain the disgusting New York Times cartoon which depicts Trump and Putin as gay lovers. Is this "All the News That's Fit to Print"?    A Video.

★★★★★ How Globalism Is Killing Working Class America.
What do Danville VA., Janesville WI., Columbia TN., Spring Hill SC., and Portsmouth OH., have in common? They all were small manufacturing towns that have been killed by the WTO and NAFTA. This during the reign of Clinton, with Bush, Ford, Carter and others in support. Fortunately things have begun to turn around under Trump. The Story of One of those towns.

★★★★ Microsoft Calls for Federal Regulation of Facial Recognition. (Can you believe that?) Over the past year, Silicon Valley has been grappling with the way it handles our data, our elections, and our speech. Now it's got a new concern: our faces. In just the past few weeks, critics assailed Amazon for selling facial recognition technology to local police departments, and Facebook for how it gained consent from Europeans to identify people in their photos. And Microsoft has endured its own share of criticism lately around the ethical uses of its technolog. The Story
★★★★★ My 'Black Lives Matter' Problem - Wrong on crime, wrong on Israel, and wrong on education. As a staunch defender of Israel on moral grounds, I categorically condemn the moral ineptitude of the Black Lives Matter movement on this point. If there is a victim in the Middle East, it is the beleaguered state of Israel. The Jewish state is the only technologically advanced and democratic country in a region of illiberal, primitive, and human-rights-abusing nations that treat women worse than cattle and don't know the meaning of religious reciprocity..

★★★ Democrats: "Do Not Surrender the Judiciary"
The NY Times has simply gone berserk over the thought of President Trump appointing another Justice to the US Supreme Court. Multiple "editorial board" opinions have been published since Justice Kennedy's announced retirement. Here is their editorial boards most recent. One may consider this their "official" position pro tem. Oh, for one thing, Democrats and Progressives are used interchangeably. The Opinion piece.
★★★★★ "If you don't believe in gay marriage, then drop my class". However the Wisconsin Supreme Court says otherwise when it sent a powerful message to America's elite universities: If you're going to promise academic freedom, you'd better deliver academic freedom. In a stinging ruling, the court held that Marquette [Catholic] University violated its own faculty handbook when it effectively terminated professor John McAdams for writing a blog post criticizing a graduate student instructor's attempts to silence debate about gay rights in her class. The Story
★★★★★ Liberals are hysterical because a long era of judge-made law may be about to end.
The day after Justice Anthony Kennedy resigned, the New York Times's editorialists addressed "those who face the future in fear after Wednesday." Lest anyone miss the point, the Times said: "It is a dark moment in the history of the court and the nation, and it's about to get a lot darker." All this panic is supposed to be about the future of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision establishing abortion.....     The OpEd

★★★★ Alan Dershowitz says 'friends on Martha's Vineyard' are shunning him for defending Trump. He says he has been shunned - first by old political allies who have stopped inviting him to cocktail parties and dinners, and now by liberal elites who are trying to exclude him from their social circles on Martha's Vineyard. The fact that he voted for Obama & Clinton is not good enough for some of my old friends on the island he wrote. "For them, it is enough that what I have said about the Constitution, might help Trump." His Story + Post cover.
★★★★ On immigration, Democrats give Trump the upper hand - again. First, they went overboard in their attacks on Trump, with some playing the Hitler card. "This is the United States of America. It isn't Nazi Germany," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein. Then, to compound her error, she introduced disastrous legislation that would not simply end family separations but also actually expand the policy of "catch and release." Democrats don't seem to understand: Americans oppose family separation, but they also oppose "catch and release." In other words, Feinstein has given away the moral high ground. The Story
★★★ And the winner of Florida Primary / DeSantis vs. Putnam debate? Trump!
This is not an SRQPATS endorsement, it is a news report of the DeSantis / Putnam debate on FoxNews for Republican nominee for Florida Governor. We have chosen the report from the Tampa Bay Times versus our own hometown newspaper, whose article is linked for comparison, it is here. The Florida Primary is August 28th. The Report
★★★ Democrats Plot to Block Trump Kennedy Replacement - They may be sorely disappointed.
Heeding the call of their radical left base and a pliant Trump-hating media, Democrats are promising total resistance to even meeting with the president's nominee before the mid-term elections, let alone holding any hearings or an up or down floor vote. They are still sore over what they view as the Supreme Court seat stolen from them in 2016. The battle ahead
★★★ Trump, Supporters Dig In Deeper
In interviews across the country recently, dozens of Trump voters, as well as pollsters and strategists, described something like a bonding experience with the president that happens each time Republicans have to answer a now-familiar question: "How can you possibly still support this man?" Their resilience suggests a level of unity among Republicans that could help keep control of the House in Nov.

★★★★ When voters have to choose between left and right incivility, Democrats will lose. Why blame Maxine Waters? The combustible, tenured congresswoman from California is being run through the tut-tut wringer for calling down her version of jihad on an elected president.

Waters said in her normal habit of discourse-a shout-"you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them." The Story

A review of hundreds of Facebook's patent applications reveals that the company has considered tracking almost every aspect of its users' lives: where you are, who you spend time with, whether you're in a romantic relationship, which brands and politicians you're talking about. The company has even attempted to patent a method for predicting when your friends will die. The Story

★★ Folks have asked, "Why haven't we included more of George Will?". Simply put and using his words, he is an amorphic bombast. He's had delusions of grander in the hopes of being the next William Buckley and when that failed, his focus turned to Charles Krauthammer. Not wanting to be outclassed by Mr. Krauthammer, Mr. Will waited to after Krauthammer's passing to unleash his anti Republican & Trump barrage in a Washington post OpEd Saturday June 23. He was already lined up for the Sunday & Monday AM TV talk shows on the usual leftist networks. His OpEd uses such "clever verbiage" as; invertebrate, atrophied, Vesuvius of mendacities, (wow, that's a good one). There were vague references to Henry VIII, James Madison too. Add to those add "appropriate libretto attracts, and is attracted to, louts." And in summary Will writes, "And to those who say, "But the judges, the judges!"" That OpEd pretty much sums up why we have seldom included a George Will article. He is obsessed with sesquipedalian words, references to history, which he thinks along with his trademark spectacles, fools us we folk and common people too. Simply put he would rather support progressive than admit being wrong about Trump. Reference: Benedict Arnold, the Revolutionary War general who became synonymous with the word "traitor". And if that isn't enough he accused Reagan of selling out to Gorbachev. - S.E.    A Story
★★★ The ABCs of L.G.B.T.Q.I.A.+ To help you understand the Gay / Lesbian community breakdown, below is a recent article posted in the New York Times, where else.

★★ Sen.

★★★ Our minds can be hijacked, say the tech insiders who fear a smartphone dystopia*. The technologies today's youth use have turned into compulsions, if not full-fledged addictions. It's the impulse to check a message notification. It's the pull to visit YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter for just a few minutes, only to find yourself still tapping and scrolling an hour later. None of this is an accident. It is all just as the Google, Twitter & Facebook designers intended.

★★★★Who's Afraid of Jordan Peterson? In an interview this week between British television journalist Cathy Newman and clinical psychologist and social philosopher Jordan Peterson, burned through the internet, in part because she was remarkably hostile and badgering. He, saying nothing revolutionary or even particularly fiery, was so interesting, that when it was over, you wanted to hear more from him and less from her. Peggy Noonan's Story & Videos

★★★★★ Dangerous People are Teaching Your Kids. They are indoctrinating young minds throughout the West with their resentment-ridden ideology. They have made it their life's mission to undermine Western civilization itself, which they regard as corrupt, oppressive and "patriarchal." You're supporting ideologues who claim that all truth is subjective; that all sex differences are socially constructed; and that Western imperialism is the sole source of all Third World problems. They are the post-modernists, pushing "progressive" activism at a college near you. The Story & Video
★★★★ The Fracturing of the Jewish People. Israel has become a red state while U.S. Jews remain blue. "Israel is the home of all Jews," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared in his address to the American Jewish Committee Global Forum in Jerusalem recently. "Every Jew should feel at home in Israel." There is a lot of history packed into these terse sentences, and just as much controversy. But for most Jews, the U.S. isn't a temporary resting place interrupting ceaseless wandering; it is their permanent home.

★★★ America's Progressive Slumlord: Affordable housing is a progressive mantra these days, and taxpayers are exhorted to put more money into public housing. Bill de Blasio, is essentially the nation's pre-eminent slumlord. This is no small agency. Nycha runs 176,066 public housing apartments in 2,462 buildings in 326 developments across the city. One of every 14 New Yorkers - 400,000 people - calls Nycha home. Nycha is the largest public housing agency in America, larger than the next 11 agencies combined. The Story

★★★ It's Just what it Says. If democracy in the United States is imperiled, as some say it is, then the pregnant question remains: Imperiled by whom? For the Left, Democrats, the pop culture industry, most of the mainstream press, and those in the permanent government bureaucracy known colloquially as "the deep state," the answer is always Donald Trump. Trump because he is a president unschooled in the manners and mores of the country's so-called elites.

★★★ The jumbo jets dubbed Queen of the Skies are being phased out, cut up for spare parts and recycling - RIP
It's sheer size defies gravity. Its grace and elegance defy reason. The Boeing 747, mother of all jumbo jets, is in its twilight years for passenger service, leaving multitudes of travelers nostalgic for a time when air travel was comfy and exhilarating.

★★★★ The Attack on Educational Excellence. Schools once 'too Asian' were once branded 'too white' or 'too Jewish.' New York Mayor Bill de Blasio a progressive Democrat wanted to eliminate the entrance exam for the city's eight elite public high schools to ensure that more black and Hispanic students were admitted. State lawmakers, citing opposition from Asian families, blocked the move. Good for them.

★★★ 5G: What is it good for? Its impact will go far far beyond the speediest smartphones to the "Internet of Things" 5G, which will supplement rather than replace today's 4G networks, will radically improve the bandwidth, capacity and reliability of mobile broadband, much more than in previous generational shifts. How? In part by packing thousands of small antennae onto cell towers, utility poles and buildings at speeds a thousandfold increase over todays technology. It will even replace Comcast! The Story.

★★★★ Obama took lying to new heights with the Iran deal.
No surprise to most of us. First, President Barack Obama failed to disclose to Congress the existence of secret side deals on inspections when he transmitted the nuclear accord to Capitol Hill.

★★★★ The FBI's Watergate - What did the bureau know, when did it know it, and how did it learn it? The answers are essential to a public accounting of what in fact happened during an election in which the FBI was investigating both the Republican and Democratic nominees for president or their campaigns. Unfortunately, rather than make a clean breast of it all, new FBI Director Christopher Wray behaves as though the bureau doesn't need to answer to the American people's elected representatives in Congress.

★★★ Court upholds conviction of anti-gun ex PA att'y general Kathleen Kane. Kane, 51, was both the first woman and first Democrat elected to Pa's. Attorney General's office. She worked for the 2008 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign and was in turn endorsed by former President Bill Clinton. Benefitting from at least $600,000 in funding from former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Independence USA PAC , she lost her law license and was convicted in her trial, receiving a sentence of 10 to 23 months in prison, swhich was the subject of the appeal.

THIS IS EVEN MORE FUN. Than when originally posted shortly after President Trumps Inauguration. This super gigapixel photo of the event lets you zoom in on the individual faces of all in attendance. You will see senators and congressman, Supreme Court Judges, Brass in the Military, FBI, CIA and NSA folks if you know them. You'll see White House staff and all sorts agency people. There are even what some would call, the shady looking characters of the "Deep State" plus the anti-Trumpers in the news since the Russian invasion. See if you can spot them.

★★★ FBI Agents Eager To Testify Against Deep State Disheartened FBI agents, fearful of reprisals (if they speak out) from Obama disciples still lurking within the deep state, are calling upon congress to issue subpoenas compelling them to speak. The highly unusual request from career agents illustrates just how embedded and corrupt the FBI has become. Disgruntled agents are so afraid of retaliation if they voluntarily speak out against the agency, they've requested being subpoenaed rather then relying on lawmakers promise of protecting them under the "Whistleblower Law."

★★★★ The conservative leader at Stanford - is Susan Rice's son! An encouraging and refreshing sign. Recently described by one campus publication as "Stanford's most outspoken political provocateur" - is taking his passion for liberty and advancing it at Stanford University, his mother's alma mater, as president of the College Republicans. "If we are going to promote the liberty movement, if the liberty movement is going to succeed, we need to do something about these college campuses," he says. "We need to ensure the liberty movement is heard." The interview.

★★★★★ 1968 - The Year Politics Collapsed The class of 1968 included Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Donald J. Trump. The modern era of American politics-defined by polarization and nonstop intensity-began with the cataclysmic events of 1968, now celebrating, if that's the right word, its 50th anniversary. Nineteen sixty-eight was one of most insufferable and abhorrent ever to happen inside the U.S., producing war, assassinations and riots. And yes, it begun the fight that seemingly has no end. The end of a more innocent time.
★★★★ Google's File on Me Was Huge. Here's Why It Wasn't as Creepy as My Facebook Data. Google has far more data about us than Facebook. Yet unlike Mark Zuckerberg's social networking empire, which has been under fire for improperly leaking user data, Google has sidestepped controversy. You may wonder: Why is that? After all, we turn to Google for not only our internet searches but also for our emails, calendaring, maps, photo uploads, video streaming, mobile phones and web browsers. That's far more pervasive.

John Spiropoulos wrote and produced this video report. It focuses on the Obama administration's Illegal spying of the Trump Campaign, discussion of the FISA warrant and the House and Senate investigations of the executive branch's misleading search warrant application to the FISA Court.

★★★★★ The War On Wisdom The fact that one of our two major political parties is advocating lowering the voting age to 16 is a good example of the absence of wisdom among a large segment of the adult population. Is the left-wing belief in the notion of "cultural appropriation" - such as the left's recent condemnation of a white girl for wearing a Chinese dress to her high school prom - wise? Or is it simply moronic? Is it wise to provide college students with "safe spaces" - with their hot chocolate, stuffed animals and puppy videos - in which to hide whenever a conservative speaker.... by Dennis Prager
★★★★ Wisdom of a Non-Idiot Billionaire Today young people have no particular loyalty to or affection for free-market capitalism, the economic system that made America a great thing in history and a magnet for the world. There are two reasons. One is that in their short lives they've witnessed and experienced only capitalism's scandals - the 2008 crash, inequality. The other is that they've never heard capitalism defended - not in K through college, not in our entertain-ment culture. Ken Langone - Founder Home Depot.

★★★★★ Kanye West Had One of the Best Tweets of All Time After a nearly yearlong social-media hiatus, polarizing rap star Kanye West re-emerged on Twitter last month. He shocked the mainstream media by expressing admiration for President Donald Trump. He tweeted: "Don't follow crowds. Follow the innate feelings inside of you. Do what you feel not what you think." He also tweeted: "there was a time when slavery was the trend and apparently that time is still upon us. But now it's a mentality." Great OpEd, by Jason Whitlock - Fox Sports
★★★★★ American journalism is over! The Recent Correspondents' Association soirée isn't just bad, it's bad for America. Let this one be the last. The dinner was decadent. It is the Capitol elite in "The Hunger Games." It takes place in the great political capital of the world, with its most powerful figures in journalism and politics, and they giggle at dirty jokes. It is weird. They are, almost all of them, better than that. But they invited the comedian and acted out mirth. Everyone who laughed was lowered. Peggy Noonan at her best (plus video)
★★★★ God or the Multiverse? If there is one conclusion most scientists agree on, it is the preciseness and the formulation and relationship of the elementary particles. Where if the most minute of measurements were off by the slightest fraction the formation of the universe would not have taken place. This has lead many to the conclusion there must have been a designer. But is that cool for a scientist?

★★★★ Leftism Is Not Liberalism. So then, what is the difference between a leftist and a liberal? The two have almost nothing in common. On the contrary, liberalism has far more in common with conservatism than it does with leftism. The left has appropriated the word "liberal" so effectively that almost everyone - liberals, leftists and conservatives - thinks they are synonymous. But they aren't. Let's look at some important examples.

★★★★ How do civil wars happen?Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can't settle the question through elections because they don't even agree that elections are how you decide who's in charge. That's the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

★★★★ Comey's Last Stand for the Deep State They were among the most powerful men of the last decade. They commanded armies of armed agents, had the ability to bug and wiretap almost anyone, and had virtually unlimited budgets. They were the leadership of the FBI, the CIA and the director of national intelligence under President Obama. Each day, it becomes clearer that they are the real abusers of power in this drama.

★★★★ Leftism Is Not Liberalism For one thing Liberals dont riot and wear masks. Then what's is the difference between a leftist and a liberal? The first thing to know: The two have almost nothing in common. On the contrary, liberalism has far more in common with conservatism than it does with leftism. The left has appropriated the word 'liberal' so effectively that almost everyone - liberals, leftists and conservatives - thinks they are synonymous.

★★★★ Are We Free to Discuss America's Real Problems? There is a lot of abstract talk these days on American college campuses about free speech and the values of free inquiry, with plenty of lip service being paid to expansive notions of free expression and the marketplace of ideas. What I've learned, that's snot so, when people are confronted with speech they don't like. Amy Wax University of Penn. is still under attack for her previous OpEd's.

★★★ Judge's Death Gives Trump a Chance to Remake the Vexing 9th Circuit Court. In the spring of 2014, a friend tried to nudge Judge Stephen Reinhardt, then an 83-year-old liberal stalwart on the US Ninth Circuit, into stepping aside so Pres. Obama could nominate a successor. He didn't. Now Judge Reinhardt, who just died at age 87, can be replaced by a nominee chosen by Pres. Trump. He suddenly has a chance to seat a judge with a markedly different judicial outlook, giving conservatives a greater voice on the liberal court. Article

I have embraced crying mothers who have lost their children because our politicians put their personal agendas before the national good. I have no patience for injustice, no tolerance for government incompetence, no sympathy for leaders who fail their citizens. - Donald Trump
★★★★★ "Social Justice" is a term you hear almost every day.
But did you ever hear anybody define what it actually means? Jonah Goldberg of the American Enterprise Institute tries to pin this catchall phrase to the wall. In doing so, he exposes the not-so-hidden agenda of those who use it. What sounds so caring and noble turns out to be something very different. Prager Univ. Video
★★★★★ Someone is watching you At Purdue University, the same IT infrastructure that enables us to manage student assignments and grades, operate residential and dining facilities, and support scientific research produces as a byproduct a massive amount of information. We know where each student is anytime - which is virtually all the time - their mobile devices are connected to our WiFi network. When they enter their dorm, or dining court, or recreational facility, they swipe in, and a machine captures the time and place. Whether they're in class or in their rooms. Forget that old ominous line, "We know where you live." Now "We know where you are." by Mitch Daniels, Pres. Purdue Univ.
★★★ Dear Condoleezza Rice: Good luck fixing the NCAA I see that you'll be a little busy this spring, now that you've accepted yet another "service opportunity" as chair of the new commission tasked by the NCAA to help it reform college basketball. You've always been a sucker for a good cause; and if ever a cause qualified, this one does. When the FBI revealed its findings about the corrupt connections among shoe companies, agents, a few big-time college programs and coaches, and the AAU (the first "A" increasingly looks like a misnomer), no one near the sport was shocked...

★★★★ The 2,232-page budget bill was written in secret, passed under pressure in under two days before easter recess. It raises discretionary spending as the national debt grows; and fails to deliver on any major GOP priorities except increased defense spending. What could have been the signature achievement of unified Republican government for this year is more akin to the sort of legislation that would have been right at home in the Obama administration.

★★★★ The Deep State Is in Deep Trouble. Why would some "concerned citizen" suddenly leak information to ABC that Jeff Sessions was under investigation for perjuring himself (about Russia, of course) during his confirmation hearing now almost a year behind us? Could it have something to do with the fact that the man who instigated that investigation was none other than Andrew McCabe, only recently fired by Sessions? (Be sure to see linked pages within)

★★★ What Went Wrong at the FBI? After 9/11, the bureau lost its law-enforcement ethos as it tried to become more of an intelligence agency. Americans have grown increasingly skeptical since 2016 of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, an institution they once regarded as the world's greatest law-enforcement agency. Many lapses have come to light, and each has been thoroughly covered. But why did they happen?

The campus mob at the Ivy League's University of Pennsylvania Law School has scored a hit.

★★★★ Deliverance From Hillary Clinton It takes a long time for candidates to get over losing the American presidency. Some never do.

You're holding nothing.

★★★ A Florida Teacher of the Year bluntly writes, WHY School Violence Is Out of Control. My parents NEVER supported any bad behavior from me. My parents invaded my life. They knew where I was ALL the time. They made me have a curfew. They made me wake them up when I got home. They made me respect their rules. They had full control of their house, and at any time could and would go through every inch of my bedroom, backpack, pockets, anything!

★★★★ Why Did It Take Two Weeks To Discover Parkland Students' Astroturfing? "Can you believe these kids?" It's been a recurring theme of the coverage of the Parkland school shooting: the remarkable effectiveness of the high school students who created a gun control organization in the wake of the massacre. In seemingly no time, the magical kids had organized events ranging from a national march to a mass school walkout, and they'd brought in a million dollars in donations from Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney.

★★★★ Ayn Rand called envy "so inhuman an emotion that those who feel it seldom dare admit it even to themselves. That emotion is: hatred of the good for being the good." We've captured here that inhumane, anti-human force in a narrative expression, and thus personified it as a super-villain in this "Draw My Life" video. The evil force that is envy narrates his destructive march through human history and how he met his greatest enemy in Ayn Rand. VIDEO
★★★★School Shooting Plot Exposed. You Wont Believe who Set it up. First, let's be clear; We're not talking about the four police officers being on scene when the shooting begins, but who chose to do nothing. Secondly, this isn't about the FBI, who knew of Nikolas Cruz and his grotesque desires for mayhem and violence - and police visit 39 times. Lastly it isn't about how a troubled young man, so clearly mentally and emotionally distressed, ran afoul of the law so often, but was still somehow able to pass a background check to purchase his firearm.

★★★★Explaining Jews Why are Jews liberal?The question is entirely legitimate since Jews (outside of Israel) are indeed over-whelmingly liberal and disproportionately left of liberal as well. For example, other than blacks, no American group votes so lopsidedly for the Democratic Party. And the question is further sharpened given that traditional Jewish values are not leftist. That is why the more religiously involved the Jew, the less likely he is to be on the Left. As only Dennis Prager can explain
★★★★The Democrat Party has lurched so far left that it has alienated huge swaths of the electorate. It is peddling the same stale, tired, hateful, divisive, grievance-grubbing "material" with the same ancient pitch-coots and spokes-crones. They desperately need a "new audience" of voters to replace the white working class and tax-paying middle classes of all colors whom they have gratuitously insulted and driven away. They are counting on voters who are young, stupid and influenced by endorsements from brain-dead celebrities. Loony Left
★★★★Kim Yo Jong is North Korea's Twisted Sister. She holds a key post in Pyongyang's fearsome and brutal Propaganda and Agitation Department. Missing from media coverage was any detail about Ms. Kim's day job in Pyongyang. In North Korea this kid sister has served under Big Brother as a deputy director of the powerful and omnipresent Propaganda and Agitation Department. She has apparently racked up a record so stellar that last year the U.S. Treasury blacklisted her as a top North Korean official tied to "notorious abuses of human rights." Twisted Sister
★★★★The OODA Loop President?? Back in December of 2015, Dan McLaughlin wrote an excellent piece in The Federalist on the then-upcoming Republican primary race. It offers quite the window into the political decision making of Donald J. Trump. In it he accurately outlines Trump as the candidate employing the Observe, Orient, Decide, and then Act principles (the OODA Loop) of famed American fighter pilot and strategist John Boyd. It's right on the money!
★★★★★ THE BEST EXPLANATION OF THE FISA CONTROVERSY. Mark Levin, a former Reagan Administration official, has packed a punch with his FISA controversy explanation, saying that Americans have been subjected to a "massive propaganda campaign" to project Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.

★★★★Trump separates Americans from the Un-Americans. At Trumps State of the Union speach, we saw heroes rise in the House Chamber and we saw the Congressional Black Caucus members in kente cloth scowling through the good news about African-American unemployment.

The Democrats and the media called the speech divisive."

This crew wants to tout their credentials as fighters for the Dreamers, and they'd rather have a wedge issue than a solution. News story
★★★★★ Democrats' DACA fight is a power play designed to turn Dreamers into a new army of liberal voters A Memo obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation co-authored by Jennifer Palmieri, Hillary Clinton's former director of communications, states this clearly: "The fight to protect Dreamers is not only a moral imperative, it is also a critical component of the Democratic Party's future success."

★★★★ Black Protest Has Lost Its Power Have whites finally found the courage to judge African-Americans fairly by universal standards? The recent protests by black players in the National Football League were rather sad for their fruitlessness.

Shelby Steele says like he sees it.

The Battery Boost We've Been Waiting for Is Only a Few Years Out.
Batteries that power our modern world are expected to get a jump in storage capacity of 30% or more. The batteries that power our modern world-from phones to drones to electric cars-will soon experience something not heard of in years: Their capacity to store electricity will jump by double-digit percentages, according to researchers, developers and manufacturers.

Rumour has it that Albert Einstein spent his last few hours on Earth scribbling something on a piece of paper in a last attempt to formulate a theory of everything. Some 60 years later, another legendary figure in theoretical physics, Stephen Hawking, may have passed away with similar thoughts. We know Hawking thought something called "M-theory" is our best bet for a complete theory of the universe. But what is it?. M-theory

Michio Kaku Explores Colonization of Mars, Travel to the Stars.
An excerpt from his latest work, "The Future of Humanity: Terraforming Mars, Interstellar Travel, Immortality, and Our Destiny Beyond Earth," Kaku says (VIDEO) that for humanity to have a long-term future we must ultimately leave Earth. Most of what he predicts will be acomplished by private industry and has already started and at a fraction of "Government" cost. Grandpa will see us on the moon again - our Grandchildren on Mars. Breif excerpt & great video explanation.

Physicists Outline 10 Dimensions and how you'd experience them. Some of us may remember graphing coordinates in math class with the x and y-axes plus a third dimension, depth the z-axis. Another way to look at it is latitude, longitude, and altitude, which can locate any object on Earth. These are followed by the fourth dimension, space-time. Everything has to occur somewhere and at a certain time. After that, things get weird. The leading theory today to explain the nature of our universe, contends that there are 10 dimensions. Your Journey is here. [Including Videos]

Most of us know of Einstein's Relativity as E=MC2. It's the simple formula for the very large in the universe - gravity, planets, galaxies, black holes etc. On the other side of the coin there is the very small and its formulary called Quantum Mechanics. That would be atoms, electrons, quarks, neutrinos and the newest, the Higgs Bison. As was Einstein, todays physicists, they have been trying to find a simple formula for both. The problem is, what happens at the quantum level defies logic. Even Einstein called events "Spooky" and riddled by paradoxes. Relax and be mesmerized by this 27 min, Video made for the would be physicist in us. Some say it even proves Harshem (God). - [The Amazing Video]

QUANTUM COMPUTINGIs the Next Giant Step in technology. To understand the power of quantum computing, imagine 1,000 Equifax hacks happening at once. During World War II the federal government launched the Manhattan Project to ensure the U.S. would possess the first atomic bomb. Seventy-five years later, America is in another contest just as vital to national security, the economy and even the future of liberal democracy. It's the race to build the first fully operational quantum computer. Updated with new video 03/18.

Nobody has a "right" to serve in the Military. Nobody.


What makes people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? Very far from it. The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short.

Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers. Poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hear voices in your head? Self-identify as a Unicorn?

Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can't run the required course in the required time? Can't do the required number of pushups? Not really a "morning person" and refuse to get out of bed before noon?

All can be reasons for denial.

The Military has one job. War. Anything else is a distraction and a liability.

Did someone just scream "That isn't Fair"? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful. YOU change yourself to meet Military standards. Not the other way around.

I say again: You don't change the Military... you must change yourself.

The Military doesn't need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars. If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality... Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors. Who's next in line?




Ken Huber,

Has America become the land of the special interest and home of the double standard?

Lets see: if we lie to the Congress, it's a felony and if the Congress lies to us its just politics; if we dislike a black person, we're racist and if a black dislikes whites, it's their First Amendment right; the government spends millions to rehabilitate criminals and they do almost nothing for the victims; in public schools you can teach that homosexuality is OK, but you better not use the word God in the process; you can kill an unborn child, but it is wrong to execute a mass murderer; we don't burn books in America, we now rewrite them; we got rid of the communist and the Socialist threat by renaming them progressives; we are unable to close our border with Mexico but have no problem protecting the 38th parallel in Korea; if you protest against a General Lee statue you're a terrorist but if you burned an American flag or Donald Trump in effigy it was your First Amendment right.

You can have pornography on TV or the Internet, but you better not put a nativity scene in a public park during Christmas; we have eliminated all criminals in America, they are now called justice involved; we can use a human fetus for medical research but it's wrong to use an animal.

We take money from those who work hard for it and give it to those who don't want to work; we all support the Constitution, but only when it supports our political ideology; we still have freedom of speech, but only if we are being politically correct; parenting has been replaced with Ritalin and video games; the land of opportunity is now the land of handouts; the similarity between Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf Oil spill is that neither president did anything to help.

And how do we handle a major crisis today? The government appoints a committee to determine who's at fault, then threatens them, passes a law, raises our taxes; tells us the problem is solved so they can get back to their re-election campaign.

What has happened to the land of the free and the home of the brave?

Ken Huber, the author of the editorial, has a lengthy background in local government. He was city manager of a number of municipalities in Michigan from the early 1970s until his retirement in 2006, according to PressPubs.com.



JOHN IS MY HEART
By Frank Schaeffer - Washington Post

This is a well-written article that's been around for a decade. It's a father's story who put several of his kids through expensive colleges but one son wanted to be a Marine. Interesting observation by this dad and an interesting commentary that says a lot about our failing and fallen society years later.

"Before my son became a Marine, I never thought much about who was defending me. Now when I read of the war on terrorism or the coming conflict in Iraq, it cuts to my heart. When I see a picture of a member of our military who has been killed, I read his or her name very carefully. Sometimes I cry.

In 1999, when the barrel-chested Marine recruiter showed up in dress blues and bedazzled my son John, I did not stand in the way. John was headstrong, and he seemed to understand these stern, clean men with straight backs and flawless uniforms. I did not. I live in the Volvo-driving, higher education-worshiping North Shore of Boston I write novels for a living. I have never served in the military.

It had been hard enough sending my two older children off to Georgetown and New York University. John's enlisting was unexpected, so deeply unsettling. I did not relish the prospect of answering the question, "So where is John going to college?" from the parents who were itching to tell me all about how their son or daughter was going to Harvard. At the private high school John attended, no other students were going into the military. "But aren't the Marines terribly Southern?" (Says a lot about open-mindedness in the Northeast) asked one perplexed mother while standing next to me at the brunch following graduation. "What a waste, he was such a good student," said another parent. One parent (a professor at a nearby and rather famous university) spoke up at a school meeting and suggested that the school should "carefully evaluate what went wrong."

When John graduated from three months of boot camp on Parris Island, 3000 parents and friends were on the parade deck stands. We parents and our Marines not only were of many races but also were representative of many economic classes. Many were poor. Some arrived crammed in the backs of pickups, others by bus. John told me that a lot of parents could not afford the trip.

We in the audience were white and Native American. We were Hispanic, Arab, and African American, and Asian. We were former Marines wearing the scars of battle, or at least baseball caps emblazoned with battles' names. We were Southern whites from Nashville and skinheads from New Jersey, black kids from Cleveland wearing ghetto rags and white ex-cons with ham-hock forearms defaced by jailhouse tattoos. We would not have been mistaken for the educated and well-heeled parents gathered on the lawns of John's private school a half-year before.

After graduation one new Marine told John, "Before I was a Marine, if I had ever seen you on my block I would've probably killed you just because you were standing there." This was a serious statement from one of John's good friends, a black ex-gang member from Detroit who, as John said, "would die for me now, just like I'd die for him." My son has connected me to my country in a way that I was too selfish and insular to experience before. I feel closer to the waitress at our local diner than to some of my oldest friends. She has two sons in the Corps. They are facing the same dangers as my boy. When the guy who fixes my car asks me how John is doing, I know he means it. His younger brother is in the Navy.

Why were I and the other parents at my son's private school so surprised by his choice? During World War II, the sons and daughters of the most powerful and educated families did their bit. If the idea of the immorality of the Vietnam War was the only reason those lucky enough to go to college dodged the draft, why did we not encourage our children to volunteer for military service once that war was done?

Have we wealthy and educated Americans all become pacifists? Is the world a safe place? Or have we just gotten used to having somebody else defend us? What is the future of our democracy when the sons and daughters of the janitors at our elite universities are far more likely to be put in harm's way than are any of the students whose dorms their parents clean?

I feel shame because it took my son's joining the Marine Corps to make me take notice of who is defending me. I feel hope because perhaps my son is part of a future "greatest generation." As the storm clouds of war gather, at least I know that I can look the men and women in uniform in the eye. My son is one of them. He is the best I have to offer. John is my heart.

Faith is not about everything turning out OK; Faith is about being OK no matter how things turn out."

Oh, how I wish so many of our younger generations could read this article. It makes me so sad to hear the way they talk with no respect for what their fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers experienced so they can live in freedom. Freedom has been replaced with Free-Dumb.

Why not copy and paste this in an e-mail and pass along.




An analogy of nature and it's application to politicians.

You start with a cage containing five monkeys, and inside the cage you hang a banana on a string, and then you place a ladder under the banana.

Before long a monkey will go to the ladder and climb toward the banana.

Then you then spray ALL the monkeys with cold water.
After a while, another monkey makes an attempt. As soon as he touches the ladder, you spray ALL the monkeys with cold water.

Pretty soon, when another monkey tries to climb the ladder, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put away the cold water.

Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new monkey. The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the ladder. To his shock, ALL of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him.

After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the ladder he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original four monkeys, replacing it with another new monkey. The newcomer goes to the ladder and is attacked. The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment - with enthusiasm - because he is now part of the "team."

Then, replace a third original monkey with a new monkey, followed by the fourth and fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to the ladder, he is attacked.

Now, the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the ladder. Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

Having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water.

Nevertheless, not one of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the Banana.

Why, you ask? Because in their minds, that is the way it has always been!

This is how our congress operates, and this is why from time to time, ALL of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME!


Bad for the Jews, Bad for America.

The American Jewish community is coming apart at the seams. Its vital center is collapsing, and the entire group is increasingly polarized by runaway growth at both extremes: religious fundamentalism on one end, secular non-belief on the other. The result is not only bad for the Jews, but bad for the rest of America. The Story is here by Sandy Goodman, a retired producer for NBC Nightly News.



MORE SELF EVIDENT TRUITHS

Every day that goes by, I am amazed how unhinged and angry today's Democratic Party is. Remember, these are the same people who voted against "anger" and "hate" on Election Day. Remember the signs saying "When they go low, we go high?" Yeah, that didn't last long, did it? We see it on college campuses, especially when there is a person speaking who is not a liberal. What happened to free speech that liberals say they love? We also see it every day across this country at these ridiculous protests. What are these liberals hoping to accomplish?

The Democratic Party has become the world's most successful hate group next to radical Islamic terrorists, and it is now this country's largest hate group. It attracts poor people who hate the rich, black people who hate the whites, gay people who hate straight people, feminists who hate men, environmentalists who hate climate-change doubters and college kids who hate capitalism and corporate America, besides Starbucks. However the real secret to the party's success is that it attracts the support of journalists who hate Republicans and who work tirelessly to convince the rest of us that we should vote for Democrats.

If a Republican doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one. If a Democrat doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed. If a Republican is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat. If a Democrat is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone. If a Republican is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. If a Democrat is homosexual, he demands legislated respect. If a Republican is down and out, he thinks about how to better his situation. If a Democrat is down and out he wonders who is going to take care of him. If a Republican doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels. A Democrat demands that those they don't like be shut down. If a Republican is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. A Democratic non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. If a Republican decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it. If a Democrat decides he needs health care, he demands that the rest of us pay for his.

Blacks were not in slaved because they were black but because they were available. Slavery has existed in the world for thousands of years. Whites enslaved other whites in Europe for centuries before the first black was brought to the western hemisphere. Asians enslaved Europeans, Asians enslaved other Asians, Africans in slaved other Africans and even today in north African blacks continue to enslaved blacks. Slavery to the ghetto is kept alive by progressive politicians, race hustlers (Sharpton & Jackson) and people who get a sense of superiority by denouncing others as racist. We all know who they are.

Sir Winston Churchill; (Source: The River War, first edition, Vol II, pages 248-250 London).

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

A degraded sensualist deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde for coexists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith.It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome ..."

"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear".
