Islam ... Heal Thyself

I will accept the premise that the majority of Muslims do not want to convert me to their religion or they will kill me. However, that being the case, I believe that these good Muslims need to weed their own garden of its more corrosive elements. For, if the non-Muslin world is eventually forced to do this unsavory task, it will be a very bloody and a very painful episode in the history of mankind ... perhaps the most bloody and the most painful.

Even though there are 1.6 billion Muslims of various sects throughout the world, there are five times as many people of other persuasions. This, these zealots should keep in mind before they want Islam to force the rest of the world to bend to its will and join its seventh century caliphate.

Why does Hellary not have press conferences anymore? Why does she disappear for days on end?

Does Hellary have health problems that are being covered up? We all know that she had a fainting spell almost four years ago that caused a concussion and blood clots that delayed her Congressional testimony for almost a year ... at which she needed to wear Freznel glasses to correct her double vision ... see: WND Article.

She has also had, over the last few years, numerous coughing fits that often require her to drink water and/or suck on a lozenge to calm these fits down ... see: Politichicks Video Montage.

But does she have more serious neurological problems ... perhaps as a result of her previous fall? Watch the following two videos of her recent strange shaking incident and scratch your head: Conservative Outfitters. Make sure you watch both videos taken from two different angles. See them twice if needed. The second one is stranger than the first.

Also now it seems Hellary has a hole in her tongue! An open-mouth photo from Wednesday night with Obummer clearly shows an alarmingly large ulcer in the middle of her tongue ... see: LOTW Report. This is speculated to be a result of her sucking on drug-laced lozenges to counter her coughing fits. But who knows? Certainly not we, the voting public ...

Russian Reset Button

Russia's Lavarov and Hellary with the Reset Button

This morning in his press conference, Donald Trump said that, if it were Russia who had hacked into the DNC e-mail server ... but it "could have been China" ... but, "if it were Russia" ... he thinks that it probably also had previously hacked the 33,000 e-mails that were scrubbed from Hellary's server well over a year ago. Trump then went on to say that, if this were so, he hopes that Russia could find them and release them.

Oh no! Trump, according to the Hellary Clinton attack machine, is "almost a traitor" for encouraging Russia to hack into her server! This is so inane and illogical that these attack dogs look like puppies who have just had accidents all over the convention floor ... and this is illogical for two reasons:

1) - You can't encourage Russia to do something today that could only have occurred way in the past. This, to grammarians, is called tense confusion. If Russia did hack Hellary's e-mail server, then the damage had already been long-ago done ... it is not yet to be done ... and therefore Trump couldn't possibly be committing treason. He just wants Russia to release them, if it has them.

2) - And since Hellary has sworn under oath that these 33,000 e-mails were personal and had nothing to do with State Department operations or state secrets ... they just dealt with planning Chelsea's wedding and her yoga lessons. If there were no state secrets in this batch, then again why would Trump be treasonous for this suggestion? More appropriately, if, like most of us suspect, these e-mails have a lot to do with the Clinton Foundation's international "pay for play" scams, then the world ... and, in particular, American voters ... surely should know this fact. And Russia releasing these E-mails would be doing American voters a favor.

Besides, it's not like Trump was selling 20% of America's uranium production to Russia,  he was just hitting the proverbial "Reset" button.

Afterward: Also read: The Left Discovers Russia and Krauthammer's Comments ... also this morning's NY Times had as a headline that Trump was encouraging Russia to spy (future tense) on his opponent. Anyone who buys this spin is a real media lemming.

Hellary Clinton and her surrounding crime family don't like to lose. They REALLY don't like to lose. And current CNN polling shows Trump at 44% and Clinton at 39%. Thus, they are in jeopardy of losing the coming presidential election. And the Democrat convention is in disarray due to the huge recent e-mail dump by Wikileaks. Thus, the Clinton campaign must feel up a tree. And we all know how dangerous wild animals can be when they have no obvious escape route. These people are feral and they are cornered. Not a happy circumstance for Donald Trump and his campaign staff!

What will the Clinton machine do? I have no idea ... but I am sure the insidious planning is underway to somehow dramatically turn the tables on Trump. Whatever happens, it should be easy to recognize as being of diabolical Clinton design. Watch! Then Hellary's horns might just grow long enough to to be visible above her hairline!

From Russia with Love

In the last week the number of hits to this blog has grown exponentially ... and they are mostly from Russia. I've been scratching my head over this anomaly until I saw the dump of 20,000 embarrassing e-mails that Russian hackers had siphoned off of the Democrat National Committee servers ... which is causing havoc right before the Democrat convention ... see: Daily Mail Article. I can't help but believe that the Ruskies are monitoring all kinds of political blogs for the  run-up and reaction to this dump.

There is even speculation that this e-mail exposure by the Russia is engineered to get Donald Trump elected. Wouldn't that be interesting! Does this mean then that, come late October, we will get to see those 30,000 "personal" e-mails that Hellary had scrubbed from her e-mail server? Gee, Vladimir, I hope so!

More Rigging

After being denied by the Virginia Supreme Court from granting blanket clemency to ex-felons in his state for the right to vote, Governor Terry McAuliffe has vowed to sign 13,000 individual clemency orders to these same ex-felons so that they might vote for his mentor, Hellary Clinton in November ... see: Daily Caller. Article.

This, of course, makes a mockery of the clemency process since this is supposed to be done on the basis of individual merit ... which can't occur using this rule-bending process. But bending the rules is standard procedure within the Clinton posse.


Do you sense that we are growing accustomed to terrorist strikes? I do. Sunday, in Ansbach, Germany a suicide bomber from Syria blew himself up injuring 12 ... 3 critically ... and near Stuttgart, Germany, a pregnant woman was hacked to death by a machete wielding Syrian refugee and two others were wounded. The rest of the world has taken little note of these events ... see: Express Article and Yahoo New Story. German police are reluctant to say that these were terrorism ... but, then again, what were they? Pyromania and Misogyny? And this came just two days after an 18-year old Iranian immigrant killed nine youngsters at a McDonald's in Munich, Germany ... all the while yelling Allahu Akbar! I don't think this translates into, "I didn't get special sauce on my Big Mac!" Do you? And this all then echos the July 18 ax attack by a 17-year old Afghan/Pakistani immigrant severely injuring five people on a train near Nuremberg, Germany. Was he just practicing for his Boy Scout Trail Blazing merit badge? I don't think so. (These dire consequences cannot reflect well on German Chancellor Angela Merkel's policy of welcoming hoards of Muslim immigrants.)

And let's not forget Nice, France ... and that Muslim ice cream truck driver ...

As the pace of these attacks by those from the "Religion of Peace" quickens, it seems that much of the world is becoming inured to these brutalities and, because of some liberal-mind malfunction, is very reluctant to call them wannabe Muslim terrorism or motivated by ISIS. I find this bazaare and predictably quite dangerous.

Kaine Mutiny

Not only can her VP pick, Tim Kaine, speak Spanish but he also, like Hellary Clinton, is enamored of Muslims ... see: Breitbart Article. This obviously helped seal the deal with Huma's close friend. Here is the key summary of this hyperlink:
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s newly-announced running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, has a history of embracing Islamists. He appointed a Hamas supporter to a state immigration commission; spoke at a dinner honoring a Muslim Brotherhood terror suspect; and received donations from well-known Islamist groups.
Boy will Trump have fun with this one!


As I reluctantly hobble into my dotage, I do suffer one benefit ... realizing more clearly how cynically politicians try to brand or rebrand themselves and their opponents. We will be witnessing a perfect example of this public relations pirouette this week when we watch the Democrat convention. I think I have already discerned a major theme of this staging ... Republican = dark versus Democrat = light.

Most left-leaning major television network's talking heads and newspaper op-eds have already echoed the notion that the Republican convention and, in particular, Donald Trump's acceptance speech was "dark and foreboding." This branding idea will be to contrast this with Hellary's light and shining upbeat message. She is already wearing more white and pastel pantsuits and emphasizing a lilting optimistic message to contrast with what she describes as Trump's doom and gloom pessimism. Watch for many repeats of this attempt to rebrand Hellary from her current popular perception as Beelzebub ... into the belle of the ball.

This remake is particularly important due to Hellary's almost universal current image as being untrustworthy and self-serving. So her rebranders have the daunting challenge of turning not just a sow's ear, but all of its naughty parts ... into a silk purse. The word has probably gone out to use only rosy words and images ... a task which will be made more difficult by any more terrorism attacks or other news downers during the nominating ceremonies. If one monitors the Dem's convention from this perspective, it might get one through all those mind-numbing stem-winding speeches and other inanities

Watch and see if I am not right.

Unforced Errors

Liberals are always facile with language. A while ago there used to be something called a "Demolition Derby" where an olio of old cars careened around a large arena slamming into each other (usually backwards to save their radiators and engines from crippling damage.) The last one capable of moving was the winner. This brings us to Hellary Clinton ... who appears to be the last old auto running after a career of careening around leaving smoking scandals in her wake. (We know most of them by heart.)

Now I'm convinced that pretty much all of her eluded scandals were conscious ... she knew exactly what she was doing ... accidentally on purpose if you will.

So back to liberal word smithing. What is the new phrase that libs have come up with to describe all these Hellary scandals? Right from the Wimbledon center court ... they call them "unforced errors." In other words, this erudite tennis semantic absolves Hellary from evil intent in one fell swoop. Whitewater, travelgate, Benghazi, filegate, the e-mail server, etc., etc., etc. were all caused by some exogenous event well beyond her control ... like slipping on a wet spot on the tennis court while trying to return a serve.

You, dear reader, now understand the purpose of this new excuse phrasing. You will likely hear it frequently this coming week at the Democrat Philadelphia convention. The talking point memo has gone out.

And I guess I've mixed enough metaphors for this blog post, so I'll stop and not commit any more unforced errors..

Being Briefed

"There has been a shooting at a large shopping mall in Munich, Germany ... and now more shots have apparently be heard in the city center and the train station has been evacuated. There are unconfirmed reports that at least six persons are dead. It is thought there are as many as three shooters. People in Munich have been advised to shelter in place. President Obummer is at the White House and is being briefed on the situation."

Thank God! The president is being briefed ... therefore everything is under control! Pretty soon we will hear that Obummer's "thoughts and prayers are going out to the German people" ... and that the president has been in contact with the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel, and has offered to provide her any assistance that she needs to deal with this incident. Even though the motivation of these shooters is currently unknown. Ms. Merkel is expected to state that this mayhem and the other axe-wielding attack on a nearby train a few days ago have nothing to do with the hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees that Merkel had welcomed into Germany earlier this year and last.

It is also quite predictable that both Obummer and Merkel are prepared to blame this current atrocity on scary looking weapons of war. This will certainly be the focus and locus of their recriminations.

Boiling the Ocean

There is little doubt that Elon Musk of Tesla Motors, SpaceX and now possibly SolarCity is a technical genius, a brilliant manager and a true visionary.  He has just released his newest Master Plan that outlines what he wants his companies to become ... the leaders in sustainable energy production and Earth/space transportation innovation. He has a very clear and, in many ways, appealing notion of what the world should be like ... see: CNBC Story. Read this hyperlink ... it is fascinating.

However there might be some downsides to this vision. Please don't call me a Luddite, but I have the following reservations regarding Musk's manifesto:

1) Musk has a very full plate now for his ideological ambitions. I worry that he is trying to boil the ocean and this will eventually overwhelm him. Building the next major car, truck and bus company, an important space exploration company, and a major sustainable energy provider ... all at the same time, although admirable objectives, seem a little overly ambitious.

2) I have, in the past, shown some skepticism about the probable pace of self-driving car technology. Tesla, Google and the other pioneers in this arena, IMHO, are ignoring a basic fact of human nature ... and that is to be in control of things. Yes, some will wish to turn their driving over to a computer, but I doubt that we will ever see the Indianapolis 500 comprised of any autonomous race cars.

3) His devotion to sustainable energy has been rewarded so far by the current administration's green agenda. Recently Spain, Great Britain and Germany all have backed away from their commitments to killing carbon. If Trump wins in November, it is likely that the U.S. government's subsidy largess may begin to dry up. This largess has been a key ingredient in Musk's marketing success.

I do hope I am wrong ... but I am not a buyer of Tesla's stock.

A Bear Hug

Megyn Kelly has leveled her public-relations bazooka at her boss, the head of the Fox News Network ... Roger Ailes, clearly in order to bring him down. What did Ailes do to deserve this fusillade? He gave her a peck on the cheek and a bear hug ten years ago ... and this, to Ms. Kelly, was sexual harassment. Of course Megyn Kelly has risen through the ranks at Fox News during the interim period ... praising Roger Ailes all the while for his mentoring ... to the point where she is now a multi-millionaire media star with a prime-time program on Fox.

I have written in the past about Megyn Kelly ... about how her severe mien and whiskey voice has struck me as a would-be dominatrix ... see: A Foxy Question. My instincts about this woman seem to match Donald Trump's who clearly didn't and doesn't like her ... although, in typical Trump fashion, he tripped clumsily over his tongue during the presidential debate that she co-hosted.

Now apparently as many as 50 of Fox's superstars, Bill O'Reilly, Greta Van Susteren, Sean Hannity, etc. have threatened to leave Fox if Ailes goes ... see: American News Story.

SCOOP: Today on the Boston talk radio show, The Kuhner Report, the rumor was revealed that the Trump family is ready to fund a new cable network ("balanced and fair" Wolf News?) and hire this whole group who are threatening to leave Fox. Wouldn't it be an interesting twist of fate tf Ms. Kelly's traitorous payback of Ailes spawned this competing network. She would then be maybe the last standing star at Fox ... a once proud cable network with no more viewers!

And then who might Cruella Kelly dominate?

Anything Goes

The political  right is learning the successful "anything goes" tactics of the political left. For generations liberals have used outrageous actions to push their agenda very effectively. Ever since the anti-war protests during the Vietnam war ... which proved very effective ... the left has been building and refining the way that it captures and keeps the national stage. Act Up, Code Pink, Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter, etc. ... all these myriad radical organizations have elbowed their way onto the front pages of the American media ... and continually moved their agendas forward by staying top of mind.

The right, being naturally conservative had, for the longest time, eschewed such outrageous behavior ... to its regret. Yes, occasionally Republicans like Newt Gingrich, would make small inroads into this rough and tumble world. But they were quickly belted back by the liberal media ... remember Time magazine's front-cover depiction of Newt as the Grinch who stole Christmas? Basically, outrageous behavior was the privileged territory of liberals ... because it worked so well.

But slowly, painfully slowly, conservatives have been shucking their propriety and getting down in the mud with the liberals. Ann Coulter comes immediately to mind. She has honed outrageous rhetoric to a rapier-edge. The more she is attacked, the more she attacks back, whether she is always right is unimportant ... it's the fact that she is undaunted in this political contest of wills ... and that is her calling card.

Others have filled out the ranks of these conservative brick-bat throwers ... Dinesh D'Souza, Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh, Breitbart's Milo Yiannopoulos, and now ... enter stage right ... Donald Trump. Matter of fact, one could argue that one of the reasons Trump has been so successful has been his bodacious behavior. Middle America has enthusiastically embraced someone who is finally really pushing back against our steady descent into socialist anarchy, They are willing to hug a less than a perfect conservative merely because he is kicking over a few of the loony left's bar stools.

And the phlegmatic right ... such stalwarts as Mitt Romney, George Will, Jeb Bush, and, to a lesser extent, Charles Krauthammer are aghast at such Trump effrontery. These straight-lacers are not so much turned off by what Trump says ... it's the way that he says it. It cuts against the grain of what a conservative is. "Conservatives just don't behave this way."

Well, we better get used to it. Outrageous behavior is finally working wonders for the Republicans ... to the point that Hellary Clinton is starting to look like a Victorian school marm. For good or evil, politics has finally become a cage match where now, from both sides, anything goes.

A classy presentation last night at the Republican convention by Donald Trump's wife, Melania, has deteriorated overnight when it was discovered that a small part of this talk was rephrased from Michelle Obama's speech at the 2008 Democrat convention. The pejorative term being gleefully trumpeted is "plagiarism." Watching the side-by-side comparisons of these few sentences leads me to believe that Melania's speechwriter for this small section was certainly guilty of misfeasance.  The liberal media is in full playground attack mode ... predicting firings within the Trump campaign, large defections among Trump delegates, and even the breakup of the Trump marriage.

Watching MSNBC this morning would suggest that the Trump campaign is flying apart. This may be partially true, but I feel that Donald Trump has faced similar crises many times in the past and will somehow survive this kerfuffle. I also strongly suspect that one or more campaign staffers will fall on their swords well before prime TV time tonight. And this whole matter will quickly blow over ... except of course in numerous Hellary Clinton campaign ads that will be repeatedly played in the coming months. Forming these commercials will be a little tricky however... because their making Melania look bad does nothing to promote Hellary's message that this is the year of the woman.

Yet Another Double Standard

The Hatch Act expressly forbids federal employees from endorsing candidates for elective office. It seems that HUD Secretary Julian Castro violated this stricture when he endorsed Hellary Clinton for president. (Is this a surprise since he is being mentioned as a possible VP choice?!) See: My San Antonio Newspaper Story.

The question I have is this: If it is illegal for the HUD Secretary to engage in such politicking, why is it also not illegal for our president to fly to North Carolina with Hellary on Air Force One to do exactly the same thing? See: CBS News Story.

Double standards are for little people ...

"Logic is logic, that's all I say." -- Oliver Wendell Holmes

Earthquakes that are associated with the pull of the sun's and moon's gravity have made a lot of sense to me in the past. If these orbs can affect the rise and fall of water ... the ocean tides ... why can't they affect the Earth's crust in a similar way? I have speculated on this in the past ... particularly during supermoons ... see: Supermoon. Now, it appears that I was onto something. This phenomenon apparently has been repeatedly detected in the San Andreas fault in California ... see: LA Times Story.

It would seem to me that those living in earthquake zones should pay close attention to the relative positions of the Earth, the sun and the moon. Just a thought ...

Honkie Crackers

No, Honkie Crackers are not what you put cheese or peanut butter on ... for those of you internationals who don't know the American vernacular ... they are two African-American pejorative terms for white people. Yes, believe it or not, there is reverse racism in the United States which sometimes spins out of control ... like now.

Yesterday's Baton Rouge, Louisiana's three police murders were carried out by Gavin Eugene Long, a black Nation of Islam member ... see: The Daily Caller Article. For the longest time I have wondered why this Louis Farrakhan's organization has not been a major terrorist problem in the United States. Clearly they practice a form of Islam and often rail against the American white establishment (honkies or crackers) and its culture.

Yes, the Nation of Islam religion is what caused Cassius Clay to morph into Mohamed Ali ... along with other prominent black America sports and rap stars. I'm not sure I can say how this sect differs from classical Islam ... I suspect it parallels how Reform Jews differ from Orthodox Jews. Nevertheless, it's leader, Louis  Farrakhan is not known for warm and fuzzy rhetoric towards white America. Nor has he yet separated his organization from these Gavin Long murders.

Yet, Long's rampage in Baton Rouge is surprisingly the first example of violent class warfare that I can recall coming out of this Nation of Islam. I, as a honkie cracker, do hope that it is the last.

Afterward: Did a little research and it seems that the Nation of Islam is being heavily influenced by the Scientology kooks ...

All Lives Matter

Former governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal, was interviewed by Shepard Smith on Fox News this afternoon about his reaction to the killing of three policemen in Baton Rouge this morning. In the course of his facile remarks, Governor Jindal said, "all lives matter," at which point Shepard Smith blanched and  took him to task because this phase had been denounced as racists ... by racists.

What in heaven's name is wrong with saying, "all lives matter?" Has its form been copywritten by the Black Panthers? As Jindal expanded on this phrase saying, "black lives matter ... brown lives matter ... white lives matter ... red lives matter ... all lives matter," Smith was still playing his PC violin. He then went on and on taking Jindal to task to the point I was shouting at the television (I'm over 70 and am allowed). It got so bad I had to turn the TV off in order to shut Shepard Smith up. Are we so conditioned by our liberal media (even on Fox) that we can't say something innocently appropriate like "all lives matter?"

What a perfect sphincter that pompous Smith is!

Baton Rouge Sang Froid

 Latest News: Seven police officers have been shot in cold blood in Baton Rouge, LA ... three are dead.

Barack Hussein Obama

There are really only two choices:

He is a Muslim -- He and the Democrat party have perpetrated a cynical fraud on the American people.

He is not a Muslim -- What would he be doing any differently?

Against the Grain

Crosscut Saw

One thing (among many) that really bugged and bugs me about the Clinton and Obummer administrations was/is when they would say, "the American people think (or want or believe)" ... primarily because I consider myself as part of "the American people" and often I do not think (or want or believe) what looney idea was being attributed to me.

Rather than being dissuaded by this prejudice, I will now violate my own taboo and propose that the American people do not want a lot of what Obummer has been doing these last seven years and so many months. But, in this case, I obviously mean only the majority of the American people ... not them all ... like James Carville and Valarie Jarrett so often have loved to claim.

How has Obummer been governing against the grain of the majority of Americans?

One obvious action has been his blatant encouragement of legal and illegal immigration ... even after being slapped down by the U.S. court system. This American aversion to both legal and illegal immigration in general includes both Latinos and the thousands of unvetted Muslims often from strife-torn countries. Being forced to train your foreign replacement does not often sit well with Americans. And clearly every horrific terrorist attack by "Muslim extremists" ... and the stealthy and very costly insertion of needy immigrants into unsuspecting U.S. communities solidifies this growing aversion.

Yes, those few million indigents who are getting free or cheap healthcare as a result of Obamacare are pleased with our president. But the much greater tens of millions who have seen their healthcare deductibles, co-pays and premiums skyrocket with the Democrats' [Un]affordable Care Act are not quite so happy ... particularly when they were promised the exact opposite.

The Black Lives Matter demonstrators clearly like it when Obummer claims that our police "act stupidly" or when he suggests that a black victim "could have been his son." Somehow he never has a balanced approach to the inequities between law enforcers and law breakers. But I know that the vast majority of Americans, both black and white, support our thin blue lines, despite a few bad eggs, as the only bulwark against urban anarchy.

And every day that an American factory closes or moves off-shore because of poorly negotiated or unenforced trade agreements creates more disgruntled members of the struggling working class in Obummer's fiefdom. Watching Chinese and German economies soar while ours languishes suggests that something is not right on the free-trade front. The true measure of the cost of "free trade" is our ballooning negative balance of payments, our shrinking middle class, and our thousands of shuttered factories across America.

And there are other middle finger salutes that Obummer has been lifting in haughty defiance of the interests of the many who elected him ... but he often does it with such confidence and aplomb that he escapes their wrath. But in truth, Obummer has been governing so much against the will of the American people and against the grain of our society's ethos that his nickname could easily be "Crosscut."
