★★★★★ 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.

★★★★★ A Landmark Legal Shift Opens Pandora's Box for Do It Yourself Guns. US Government Concedes That 3D Printed Guns are legal, and Cody Wilson makes digital files that let anyone 3-D print untraceable guns. The government tried to stop him. He sued-and won. The photo is a fully functioning AR-15 and for the most part can be made with a 3D printer at home! Article & Video

★★★★ 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..

★★★ I'm Sick of World Cup Fever
It's far too slow and flopping is out of control.
Gerald Eskenazi's opinion


★★★★★ The Wall Street Journal endorses Judge Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Justice. We concur. The Endorsement
★★★ 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
★★★ Intersectionality is the newest fad in political activism.
What is Intersectionality anyway? Who's involved? And, what does it even mean? Nobody is better prepared to answer these questions than Daily Wire editor-in-chief and podcast sensation, Ben Shapiro. He breaks it all down in this invaluable 4:15 minute video

★★★★ 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

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. "If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station," Rep. 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
★★★★ What Seven Creepy Patents Reveal About Facebook
More Big Bother. 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". - 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. Maybe all political persuasions, Liberals, Progressives, Conservatives and Libertarians should further describe themselves with new nomenclature - names for things especially in a science or other discipline." We then we can have a parade in celebration. We'll have to start working on that. Oh, most of us are covered by "Cisgender", although our gender identity is "assigned at birth".

★★ Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), who is running for reelection in 2018, struggled with her response when asked by CNN's Brooke Baldwin in a recent interview, if she ever spoke up and raised her voice about family separation under the Obama administration. The surprised Senator did her Democrat Best to side step answering the question as you will see in this, almost humorous video. The irony here is the question was even asked on CNN. The fate of CNN's journalist remains to be seen. The Short Video

★★★ 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
The best argument against democracy is a 5-minute conversation with the average voter. -Winston Churchill
★★★ 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

★★★★ 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.
★★★ 'I must be doing something right': Billionaire George Soros faces renewed attacks with defiance.
George Soros, the billionaire investor and liberal donor, sat in his hotel suite by Lake Zurich this week, lamenting the turn much of the world has taken in recent years: "Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong." Hillary's Loss, Brexit, the rise of Nationalism and anti-immigrant sentiment which runs counter to the globalism Soros embraces. see Soros Today.
★★★★ 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. (They were only uncovered by chance when then-Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., learned about them during a meeting with International Atomic Energy Agency officials in Vienna.

★★★★ 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.
The Illustrated Story
★★★ 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.

★★★★★ "This Court is not free to substitute its preferred economic policies for those chosen by the people's representatives," Justice Gorsuch replied.

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?
Here what professor Brian Keating has to say.
★★★★ 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.

★★★ 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

★★★★★ "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.

★★★★★ 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.

★★★★ 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?

★★★ 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.

Many lapses have come to light, and each has been thoroughly covered. But why did they happen?

★★★★ 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. The EXPOSÉ
★★★★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. The Democrats tried to stage a "coup" and fortunately it failed. And this is how the Democratic Deep State is going to be brought down.
Intro & Video
★★★★Ben Stein's Last Column. How Can Someone Who Lives in Insane Luxury Be a Star in Today's World? How can a man or woman who makes an eight-figure wage and lives in insane luxury really be a star in today's world, if by a 'star' we mean someone bright and powerful and attractive as a role model? Real stars are not riding around in the backs of limousines or in Porsches or getting trained in yoga or Pilates and eating only raw fruit while they have Vietnamese girls do their nails..... The rest of the Story
★★★★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. Rep. Pelosi grimaced and Senator Schumer glared through President Trump's appeal for bipartisanship. Senator Booker stared hatefully and Elizabeth Warren ranted hysterically on Twitter. The Democrats and the media called the speech divisive."
You've got to be kidding
★★★★Years ago I ran the State Department bureau focused on public corruption, rule of law and enforcement operations around the world. We had programs in 70 countries. Our chief objective was to teach struggling nations how to abide the "rule of law" and avoid public corruption. Yet here we are, watching laws perverted for political ends in our own country, watching the heart of who we are shredded by people sworn to uphold our laws."
Robert Charles' Story
★★★★Radioactive Trump Hillary Clinton seems to be experiencing a strange, slow motion meltdown following her 2016 loss to Donald Trump. Recently, she sent out a Twitter video message, recorded on her cellphone camera, with advice to feminists: "And let me just say, this is directed to the activist bitches supporting bitches. So let's go."
The Story
★★★Schumer's shutdown performance sparks unrest in his ranks. California's two Democratic senators could barely contain their anger after Chuck Schumer cut a deal with Mitch McConnell to reopen the government on Monday - Some 15 Democrats including Bernie (I) Sanders, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren and others voted to keep the shutdown going. 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."
Concise, to the point & covers all bases.
★★★★ 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. They may point to the end of an era for black America, and for the country generally-an era in which protest has been the primary means of black advancement in American life. Shelby Steele says like he sees it.
★★★ RAW WATER! Again only in California is there an Unfiltered Fervor to Get Off the Water Grid. "Bottled water is too controversial".... Pure water obtained by using a reverse osmosis filter, the gold standard of home water treatment, is now considered "dead water". ... and "Raw water", with its healthful bacteria & probiotics stays fresh within "one lunar cycle of delivery".... Far out comical.
★★★★★ The Left of 1942 Compared to the Left of 2 J.R. Dunn's masterful essay sees parallels of a similar implosion in the making.
You'll just have to read it.
★★★★ Of Crudeness and Truth Thoughts on President Trump's latest verbal tempest, AKA the Great Shithole Controversy of 2018. Lyndon Johnson would be prowd.
★★★ONLY IN CALIFORNIA has a law been passed for Affirmative Action for 'Marijuana Entrepreneurs's. Yes, the Golden State to help more minorities become "marijuana entrepreneurs." But, officials are worried that not enough blacks will qualify for the permits needed to sell weed legally. To address this problem read......
An unbelievable story
★★★Andrew Cuomo Goes to War. As an ex-NY'er, I love it when NY's thug of a governor gets all riled up. In his official address kicking off the new year-and no doubt his bid for the White House - Mr. Cuomo accuses Republicans in Washington of having declared an "economic civil war" aimed at "robbing the blue states to pay for the red states."
An Almost Comical story.
★★★Nationwide spending on the program is roughly $70 billion annually -20 percent of which is wasted on junk food, candy, soda, and other sugary drinks. Consider California, which spent more than $1 billion on food stamp benefits in August and September alone.
The story plus Video
★★★★ NEW for 2018 - 'White-Informed Civility' Is the Latest Target in the Campus Wars. From the land that irony forgot-which earlier gave us microaggressions and trigger warnings-comes a new and surprising movement, this time to combat civility. Civility, you see, is a manifestation of the white patriarchy. Spearheading this campaign are a duo of University of Northern Iowa professors, who assert that "civility within higher education is a racialized, rather than universal, norm."
The pre-debate debate
★★★ Now, Tax Reform Gets Real The left and the press foretold disaster for the middle class. Such claims will be tested. In the wake of last year's election, a humiliated press corps was forced to reassess, to explain how it had gotten the presidential race so monumentally wrong. Conclusions: It had been too blinded by its own biases, too sheltered from Middle America. It apologized. It promised to do better.
Or not.
The Democratic line
★★★★ The U.S. Media Suffered Its Most Humiliating Debacle in Ages and Now Refuses All Transparency Over What Happened FRIDAY WAS ONE of the most embarrassing days for the U.S. media in quite a long time. The humiliation orgy was kicked off by CNN, with MSNBC and CBS close behind, and countless pundits, commentators, and operatives joining the party throughout the day. Story & Videos
★★★★ Katie Hopkins is a conservative English media personality and newspaper columnist known for her satire and wit, much of which often gets her in trouble. She first became noticed in 2007 as a columnist for British newspapers, initially for The Sun and later the Daily Mail. She was also a talk show host on LBC (Leading Britain's Conversation - talk radio for the UK,) until May 2017 when her program was terminated. Why, She supports Trump & dislikes the direction the UK is headed. Must See GREAT VIDEO
★★★★ Mueller's Credibility Questioned.    The special counsel is stonewalling Congress and protecting the FBI. The Washington Post and the New York Times reported that a lead FBI investigator on the Mueller probe, Peter Strzok, was demoted after it was discovered he'd sent anti- Trump texts to an FBI lawyer mistress. Strzok played a lead role investigating alleged coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election and led the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails... The Editorial Board - WSJ
★★★★ Fight on President Trump. Fight on.   My leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I'm not bothered by Donald Trump's lack of decorum. My answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. We tried propriety and collegiality. And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by these rules, the left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob. Read Evan Sayet's Essay + video.
★★★ Is This the End of the NFL?   There was a time, not long ago, when the NFL was the most unifying public institution we had. No matter your political or demographic persuasion, the one thing you could find to talk about with someone was football. Now, suddenly, the league that was once for everyone seems to be in crisis. Kickoff
★★★ Dumbfounding!   George Will says it borders on Hilarity. We say it's really sad. It just shows how screwed up things are in this country due to its contrarian liberal left. For instance; Dr. Seuss books are now considered "steeped in racist propaganda." In New York's decrepit subway system, announcements must be gender-neutral and address ladies and gentlemen as "passengers",,,,,, Unbelieveable!
★★★ The Subway System in NY is a Microcosm of what ails so many cities, states and even Washington. This is How Politics', Liberal Policy and Bad Decisions Starved New York's Subways. Disruptions and delays have plagued the system this year. Not to mention rankled and infuriated commuters. But the crisis was long in the making, fueled by a litany of errors. The story thorough and lengthy, still NY'ers will appreciate it to the point of bordering on nostalgia. The NY Times Story and the short version Subway War.
★★★Higher Education's Deeper Sickness Political imbalance causes intellectual degradation. Riots against free speech are only a symptom. What then is the disease? We are now close to the end of a half-century process by which the campuses have been emptied of centrist and right-of-center voices. Many scholars have studied the political allegiances of the faculty during this time. There have been some differences of opinion about methodology, but the main outline is not in doubt. Veritas ? (Harvard)
★★★US Marines Test All-Male Squads Against Mixed-Gender Ones That took the form of a year-long experiment called the Ground Combat Element Integrated Task Force, in which 400 Marine - 100 of them female - trained for combat together and then undertook a simulated deployment, with every aspect of their experience measured and scrutinized. Semper Fi
★★★★Bonfire of the Prosecutors: Partisan animosities are pushing the U.S. toward a significant political crisis. So deep is the antipathy to the existence of a Trump presidency forget that someone has to deal with North Korea's nuclear-armed missiles, the Middle East or the U.S. economy that the opposition has spent nearly a year hoping just one more Russian collusion story would . . . do what? Make Mr. Trump evaporate? A fiction exists that Mr. Mueller represents the "rule of law." In truth, Mr. Mueller looks about as relevant ........ Daniel Henninger couldn't be more explicit.
★★What do you suppose is the real reason for Donna Brazile book? For sure it is to rid the Democrats of the Clintons. Not just Hillary, but Bill. They both have got to be relegated to the ash heap prior to the 2020 election. But for that actual reason why Ms. Brazile wrote the book read... Rush Limbaugh's take on the subject.
★★Laura Ingraham lashes out at the Bush family for their lack of support for President Trump. After eight years of silence during the Obama administration, GW #43, bad mouths President Trump. "In recent years the Bush family has become pretty tight with the Clintons and the Obamas - They have found more in come with them that the grassroots members of their own family." Do you suppose it has something to do with Trump's disrespect of Jeb? Or are the Bushes' globalists? Laura's Story & Video
★★★We are in a veritable war of competing visions. Like it or not, Donald Trump in fits and starts has chosen not to accommodate the progressive vision. But in most unlikely fashion he leads the fight against it. We are no longer in the late 1950s era of liberal reform. It is now a postmodern world of intolerance and lockstep orthodoxy.
Where are we going?
★★★ Don't Let Your Girls Become Boy Scouts. The BSA's new co-ed policy isn't an advance-it's an attempt at a hostile takeover. The BSA has no dedication to girls or girls' leadership. It has no deep commitment to creating "girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place" - their mission. What the BSA has is financial problems after losing hundreds of thousands of members in recent years having invited gay members. The BSA's plans are effectively a hostile takeover bid of a weaker organization, led by women. One womans story.
★★★★ NEWS FLASH TO MEDIA: Antifa Is COMMUNIST!
No matter how many communist hammers & sickles or images of Marx, Mao, and other communists the violent Antifa radicals display, the Fake News media continue to present them as idealistic "anti-fascists." The Red Guards of Austin TX are just one Antifa group that proudly declares their communist lineage and written about here....
The Details
★★★ Why do Americans own so many guns? Because they don't trust the protected elites to protect them. The webmaster here grew up with a .22 bolt action J.C. Higgins (Sears) bought by his dad when in 7th grade. It's been his only rifle until 2009, the year Obama took office. Prejudice towards an M14 the rifle of his days in the Army, he bought a Mini 14 and a couple pistols. He then applied for a cary permit using his Army discharge papers and he bought a couple pistols...... The Reason's Why
★★★ The Welfare State's Legacy. Academics and the civil rights establishment have taught the problems of today's black Americans are a result of a legacy of slavery. In fact the undeniable truth is that neither slavery nor Jim Crow nor the harshest racism has decimated the black family the way the welfare state has. Add to that the fact Labor unions have a long history of discrimination against blacks too. Walter Williams explains all in his essay. HERE
★★★Higher Education folks Latest Taboo Is 'Bourgeois Norms'.
An op-ed, praising 1950's values provokes another campus meltdown - from the deans on down. To the list of forbidden ideas on American college campuses, add "bourgeois norms" - hard work, self-discipline, marriage and respect for authority. Last month, two law professors published an op-ed in the Philadelphia Inquirer calling for a revival of the "cultural script" that prevailed in the 1950's. The op-ed triggered an immediate uproar at the Ivy League's, University of Pennsylvania, Give us a break.
★★★Suddenly US Foreign Relations Remembers The Bahamas. NOW that the Republicans are back in power they have suddenly awakened to the fact that our sphere of influence is quietly being infiltrated by Beijing and our influence in Caribbean Basin is slowly slipping away. The US Embassy has been well represented by its Chargé d'Affaires, but the Bahamas has not had a resident US Ambassador since 2011. Now suddenly Florida Senator Marco Rubio, chairman of the US Foreign Relations Committee, realizes that the Chinese made a $2.1 billion proposal for fishing rights 50 Mi. Away.
★★★ What Does China Want From The Bahamas? At its closest point the Bahamas (Bimini) are only 50 miles from Florida! The Abaco Island group, where the Chinese are building a port is 180 miles. As one might be aware, the recent Chinese expansion of the Panama Canal, has opened the door to their expansion and "investment opportunities" in the lower Caribbean while working their way up to our door steps. This is not unlike their expansion in the South China Sea. You'll never read about it, except in our exclusive here

    



Its new guard veers even further left against liberal values and toward progressive politics. The ACLU was once a nonpartisan organization focused on liberty and equality before the law. In recent years it has chosen its battles with an increasingly left-wing sensibility. In doing so, it has become considerably more equivocal and sometimes even hostile toward core civil liberties concerns of free speech and due process. Who could say it better than Wendy Kaminer and Alan Dershowitz. You'll find their OpEd here.
★★★ It's called Communism, and it's around, more than ever, thanks to Obama, He gave us economic ills, divisiveness amongst Americans, moral decline, creation of new sexual clasifications, P.C. run amuck and deterioration of the peoples military. They were all part of Obama's intended and calculated legacy - Communism. We hear you saying, "You must be kidding". Communism is dead. It hasn't been around since The Berlin Wall came down in 1989 and the The Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. Well You'd Be WRONG! In 1992 A communist strategy meeting (for the US) was held at the University of California Berkeley, for the sole purpose of updating their objectives originally proposed in 1963.
The details, party objectives with official documentation is here.

Speed of light travel - Fantasy?
We all know we cant travel as fast as the speed of light or even come close. Yet our Government isn't sure and has been conduction research on the subject. Their their report on warp drives and faster-than-light travel has recently come to light and included here. It's a serious work done by physicists. Still a other theoretical physicist says there's "zero chance that anyone within the next 1,000 years" will see it happen if ever.
[Nevertheless its nice to fantasize.]

Are we living in a Multiverse?
Is our universe one of a kind - or, as some scientists argue, one of an infinity of universes. A cosmos where an infinite number of universes exist beside our own is no longer confined to science fiction. Physicists have advanced three distinct arguments for the Multiverse existence. Still others would say it is just a mitigation for our God.
[What do you think?]

About Dark Matter and Dark Energy
What are they anyway? If you knew, you'd be on your way to Stockholm for your nobel prize in Physics. We know that they exist, and we know what they are not. So what do we know about those strange things?
1) Well we know there is something (out there),
2) We know it interacts with gravity,
3) There is a lot of it.

Star Map - The Gaia satellite has given us a new star map that is out of this world. The European Space Agency's Gaia mission released the richest and most detailed star map thus far. It includes about 1.7 billion stars, far more than humans can see with their naked eyes. In addition to mapping the stars, the survey also measures the position and trajectory of more than 14,000 objects within the solar system such as asteroids & comets.

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. What's coming is a more fundamental change to the materials that make up a battery. The story is here.

Stephen Hawking had pinned his hopes on 'M-theory' to fully explain the universe - here's what it is.
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.

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,
Tawas City, Mi
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.




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".
--Marcus Tullius Cicero, 106-43 BC



Members of Congress, Get Out of Town
"Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good govern-ment. Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would, like Esau, sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money. Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? That be an excerpt from Oliver Cromwell's 1653 speech, in which he described lawmakers as having "contempt of all virtue"..... The whole story

Anti-intellectualism and the "dumbing down" of America.There is a growing and disturbing trend of anti-intellectual elitism in American culture. It's the dismissal of science, the arts, and humanities and their replacement by entertainment, self-righteousness, ignorance, and deliberate gullibility. -Ray Williams - Psychology Today
