Greenland Glaciers

One fact used by climate hysterics to panic the masses is that Greenland glaciers are melting ... and this melt water will swamp low-lying areas around the world. Well, what we haven’t heard is that this Greenland warming AND cooling is cyclical over a five to twenty year period ... AND Greenland glaciers are growing again ... see: The New American Article.

You see Chicken Little, climate change is a little more complicated than  the alarmists like to tell you. So you can rest easy for the next five to twenty years ... at which point Al Gore may have changed his tune to global cooling (caused bu man-made CO2?)

Crime and Punishment

Special Counsel Mueller’s inability to prove any collusion or conspiracy between Trump or the Trump campaign and Russia means that there was no national security or criminal predicate for the Obama administration’s spying on Trump and his campaign ... nor any justification for the special counsel ... be it for this charge or even obstruction of justice which was also bogus.

This does appear to have been an Obama administration attempted political coup ... and it deserves to be fully exposed and punished ... even if this means that Obama himself is implicated. Otherwise, such political criminality will be repeated ... and likely do more dastardly damage in future elections.

Sidebar: Is Mueller to be commended for being truthful and exonerating Trump on Russian collusion? If he had done this early on before the six Americans lives were ruined (not Manafort and Cohen), maybe. Therefore, to me, he and his gang of cutthroats have engaged in prosecutorial misconduct ... and his refusal to decide on the obstructing of justice charge compounds this malfeasance.

I have ben surfing the liberal media trying to find an honest Trump accuser who, after some soul searching, has had an change of heart in response to Mueller’s exoneration of Trump in the fake Russian collusion charges. You would think that, given Trump’s clean bill of health, some stand-up Democrat would realize that it might be a good idea to get contrite and on the right side of history ... maybe some recently-elected representative from a purple district?

Despite scant evidence of such clear-eyed honesty, I have found only one liberal who has sidled up to this embarrassing moment — David Brooks, opinion writer for the New York Times. He has conceded that the media needs a little self-examination as a result of the Mueller findings ... see: NY Times OpEd.

But I don’t expect a tsunami of such half-hearted attempts at honesty.

Afterthought:  The Mueller witch-hunt was really not in vain ... the Dems did win the House last Nov.

He remembers well. He analyzes well. He writes well.  And he is right on when he says that all this reptilian behavior by those in the Obama-Clinton snake pit needs to be fully exposed and fully punished. We cannot survive as a nation if we allow investigation fatigue to overcome us now. The time for justice is upon us!

Investigation Fatigue

The Mueller investigation is over. It appears to this observer to have been nothing more than an exercise in gorilla dust to keep the country distracted with bluster so that we would not focus on the many real serious scandals committed by Obama, Hillary Clinton, Brennan, Comey, Clapper, Lynch, et alia during The One’s regime. This obfuscating strategy continues into the foreseeable future with the intent to tire us out from bogus investigations so that these real Obama scandals will be swept away.

So, the fact that Mueller seems to have come up empty with his two-year investigation may not be a total loss for the Democrats. Hillary is still sipping Chardonnay in Chappaqua, Obama is ensconced with Michelle O. and Valery Jarrett in his DC manse, most of the crooked CIA, FBI and DOJ bad actors are still cashing their checks from book publishers, MSNBC, CNN and other media moguls ... and spittle-flecked Democrats are plotting new ways to negate the results of the last election ... instead of helping Trump to Make America Great Again.

“The investigation continues ...” So sad!

Pearly Gates

God is, by definition, the most compassionate ... yet He still has a beautiful wall guarding His kingdom ... with a beautiful port of entry, the Pearly Gates ... through which all asylum seekers must pass ... after being vetted by St. Peter.

How can the United States Border Patrol and President Trump be immoral when they ask for a lesser wall and a more forgiving entry process?


The best analogy I can come up with to typify the Dem’s and most of the media’s rabid opposition to our current president is ... jackals. Packs of sniveling jackals nipping at the heels of their sworn enemy Trump  ... an enemy who is still standing despite all this constant harrowing harassment.

And, to this observer, the fact that Trump has gotten so much done despite these nipping jackals, has brought to me a sense of respect for this man who so often goes out of his way to eschew respect.

Cough Drop

Both my wife and I contracted bad chest colds last week ... one of the joys of having lots of young children around. We both went to the doctor to check things out. My visit included x-rays which resulted in a clean bill of health.

However, the next day I did receive a text from my primary physician saying that, upon review by a radiologist, my left lung did show a calcified nodule that necessitated my coming back for more x-rays. Going immediately to the Internet I found that my chances of having lung cancer was about 40%.

After a sleepless night, I went for my follow-up x-views early the next morning ... and later that PM I got another happy clean bill of health back by text from my doctor.

What? What could have happened the first time? Aha! I think I may have solved the mystery. I vaguely remembered that I had a cough drop in my tee-shirt vest pocket for that first x-rays. That was most likely the reason for this first false diagnosis ..

It’s Mueller Time!

Today might be the day ...

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s staff is departing for Greener-New-Deal pastures ... and the world is waiting with debated breath for his report that is supposed to finally drive a well-done steak through Donald Trump’s non-black heart.

Mueller has been charged with determining if Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to overturn the results of the last presidential election ... and, subsequently, obstructed justice in the investigation of this offense. Mueller is clearly a dichotomy. As a former head of the FBI under Bush ‘43 and Barack Obama, many swear to Mueller’s apolitical and impeccable integrity. While others, like myself, feel that Mueller is in the vanguard of a slow-motion coup against a sitting president. Absolutely shameful!

Why do I feel this way? Because during the last two years enough evidence has presented itself to suggest exactly the opposite ... that it was Hillary Clinton and her henchmen who conspired with Russia to affect the outcome of the 2016 election. Through a cut-out  law firm, the DNC paid for the infamous “PeePee Dossier,” a manufactured and unsubstantiated document which attempted to tie Trump and Company with the Ruskies. It was used illegally to wiretap the Trump campaign and collude with the main stream media to constantly besmirch Trump and destroy many around him.

If Mueller had been an honorable prosecutor, he would have, in the first months of his investigation, swung to investigation the obvious culprits in this drama, Peter Strzok, Bruce Orr, James Comey, Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein, John Brennan, Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates and possibly dozens of others in this Deep-State cabal who came very close to pulling off this disgraceful spook coup.

Many of the innocent have been smeared by Mueller and his thugs ... and all the truly giilty are walking ... a forever stain on our Democratic governance.

Before beginning my bloveating, I hope we can stipulate that both American political parties want world peace ... and, perhaps more importantly, gaining and keeping their party in power. However, setting the stage for the 2020 presidential election, to me, the following seems to be what the donkeys and elephants are focused on:

Democrats: more abortions (“women’s reproductive health”), tax increases, more welfare spending, reparations, diversity and inclusion, more regulation, a “living Constitution,”  illegal immigrant voting, open borders, free trade, delay in Iran’s nuclearization, socialism, sanctuary cities, defanged military, suppress “hate speech,” globalism, drastic cures to climate change, pack the Supreme Court, guaranteed national income, lower voting age to 16, infanticide, multiple genders, weakened Israel, eliminate Electoral College, border walls are immoral, Russia is pure evil, anti-guns

Republicans: higher economic growth, free speech, expansion of the middle class, less regulation, strict interpretation of Constitution original intent, secure borders (including a wall), resurgent domestic manufacturing, fair trade, denuclearizing of North Korea and Iran, higher wage growth, capitalism, rebuild U.S. military, nationalism, dismiss global warming hysteria, only living U.S.  citizens voting, Spaceforce, strong Israel, allies paying for U.S. military protection, two genders, Russia could be helpful, pro 2nd Amendment

Reading back over these party positions, I am struck by how negative the Democrats stances are and how positive are the Republicans’. When campaigning, pluses are generally better than minuses.
