Why does Colin Kaepernick prefer wearing a Fidel Castro-Malcolm X t-shirt and cap to a Martin Luther King shirt?


Why does BLM's Colin Kaepernick proudly sport a custom-made t-shirt depicting the 1960s meeting of tyrannical, totalitarian, communist dictator Fidel Castro with black power-black supremacist-Moslem militant Malcolm X, then a minister in the black nationalist Nation of Islam movement? What is Kaepernick's message? What is this intensely political man trying to say with this shirt? It's not hard to figure out given Kaepernick's extremist views on racism in America. For Kaepernick the ultimate solution to his completely exaggerated and deranged notion of racial injustice and black oppression in this country is Castro and Malcolm X, or BLACK POWER COMMUNISM. It's that simple.
Like the leaders of Black Lives Matter Kaepernick is a committed ideological communist and black power radical disillusioned with the American liberal, free market constitutional system of rights and liberties. Indeed, he's disillusioned with trying to reform our system from within as Martin Luther King tried to do in the 1960s with his peaceful, non-violent, humane approach to ending racial discrimination and Jim Crow laws. Indeed, MLK's  so-called successes were largely illusory, believes Kaepernick and BLM. It's been more than 50 years since the Civil Rights Movement, more than 50 years since Congress passed historic civil rights legislation, more than 50 years since the start of LBJ's War On Poverty and trillions transferred to indigent blacks, and what do they have to show for it? Practically nothing, as far as Kaepernick's concerned.
For Kaepernick and BLM King's movement overcame little. America is as racist today as it was then, according to these fools.
Indeed, despite the slow but steady social, political and economic progress that Blacks have made since the Civil War and abolition of Jim Crow laws America for deranged Colin Kaepernick is still a nightmare of violent racial injustice and inequality not far removed from Jim Crow days: unarmed blacks are brutally gunned down in the streets by racist police, he believes; millions of mostly innocent blacks fill our jails (victims of wrongful convictions); and millions more live in poverty, oppression and inner city degradation (trapped by the liberal welfare state) because of economic discrimination and well hidden institutional racism. Dr. King's dream of equality between all races and ethnicities has, for Kaepernick, turned into the horror of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and the Charleston church shooting (a rare mass murder racist event). American constitutional rule of law government and free enterprise is a fraud, believes Kaepernich; and our law enforcement and criminal justice systems are profoundly, irredeemably, unfixably racist and corrupt failing blacks big time - and Kaepernick has had enough.
The time is now for radical revolutionary transformational bottom up change; and that change for Kaepernick and  BLM is symbolized by Castro's meeting with Malcolm X in Harlem 57 years ago: the destruction and replacement of American racist, white supremacist free market democracy with a command and control black power communist state; a socialist utopia principally for blacks (as Hitler's Germany was socialism for Germans) where  inherently evil and genetically racist whites are forced to pay at gun point reparations for America's slave past - with a price tag in the trillions (see). For commie  Kaepernich there's no other way to achieve real complete perfect racial justice in this world except by the oppression of whites in a state that favors blacks.
If it were the Cuban national anthem that was playing Kaepernick would be standing erect showing reverence and respect for the murderous, oppressive the Castro regime - which he believes is the ideal government and model for America.
In other words, when a defiant Keapernick refused to stand for the national anthem and flag it was a revolutionary act showing his utter contempt and hatred for our unjust racist democracy and multi party pro-white system as if we differ little from the old apartheid regime of South Africa. For Kaepernick (and BLM) it doesn't matter how many hundreds and thousands of soldiers fought and died for the anthem and flag over the centuries; it doesn't matter that 400,000 Union soldiers died in a war to end  slavery in this country, and a comparable number died to stop the global triumph of Nazi fascism. For the mentally deranged Kaepernick (and BLM) all these soldiers died in vain; they died for a good idea of equality that can't be realized in this rigged, white man's racist society where the cards are stacked against blacks and other minorities.
Moreover, Kaepernick is so down on our political system that he doesn't vote in elections, believing that doing so is a waste of time (see). For him the predominantly white Republican and Democrat parties are equally racist, unjust and criminally bad. Indeed, during the election Kaepernick put Hillary Clinton in the same boat with Donald Trump saying that she was just as racist and evil as he was (see). And perhaps Kaepernick (like many in BLM see) thought no better of Bernie Sanders - a white politician from the very white state of Vermont whose populist movement was backed mostly by white working middle class Americans wanting their fair share of the economic pie.
In short, for Kaepernick (and BLM) there's nothing good about America. All attempts to reform and transform it within the context of our liberal democratic system have failed. After 150 years since the Civil War and abolition of slavery we're still the United States of Racist Hate: a totally rotten, miserable, corrupt, evil, irredeemably sinful white supremacist country that must be destroyed, and replaced with an incorruptible, one party, all-powerful black state to ensure that blacks are never again oppressed or put in chains. And that's why Colin Kaeperneck proudly wears a Castro-Malcolm X t-shirt and cap. It's a political statement telling us exactly where this jerk is at.  


 I'll get straight to the point: Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential race to Donald Trump for practically the same exact reason she lost the 2008 Democratic primary race to Barack Obama: she failed to convince enough voters that she was the candidate of change for a country in decline headed in the wrong direction and wanting change.
Obama and Clinton go toe-to-toe over Iraq.
In 2008 with a war-weary America having turned against the Iraq war (thinking, like Vietnam*, it was a costly mistake) the Democrats were looking for the most convincingly anti-war/anti-Bush candidate; and they chose Barack Obama over Hillary because unlike Hillary (who had been hawkish on Iraq and supported Bush's war from the start) he Obama early on in 2002 gave a speech in Chicago where he absolutely opposed military intervention in Iraq. This gave Obama way more credibility with Democrats than Hillary (she didn't fully denounce the war until 2006) that he was the safer and more trustworthy candidate who as President wouldn't repeat Bush's mistake in Iraq. Obama then, the anti-Bush peace candidate, went on to defeat pro-Iraq war hawk John McCain convincing voters that he was John McBush and would be Bush's third disastrous interventionist term. In short, it was the Iraq war that defeated Hillary Clinton (and John McCain) in 2008; and incredibly it would be the Iraq war again, and the perception that she was too pro-war and hawkish, that would come back to haunt Hillary in 2016 and cost her the election. 
*Oddly, it was Texan President Lyndon Johnson that started the land war in Vietnam and Texan President George Bush that started the land war in Iraq.
Trump and Jeb Bush spar over U.S. invasion of Iraq

Jeb, why did your brother attack and destabalize the Middle East by attacking Iraq when there were no weapons of mass destruction? Bad info?

Indeed, when Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the GOP nomination he had learned the lesson of 2008: understanding that the nation was still very war-weary and hostile to the Iraq war, and certain that the hawkish Hillary would be the Democratic nominee, like Barack Obama Trump would run as the anti-Bush, anti-war candidate of change, and in a surprising radical way: he'd attack Bush, his presidency and war legacy from the hard Left which put him to the Left of Hillary. This attack wasn't done from personal animosity toward President Bush (a good and decent man who kept us safe after 9/11) but to make it perfectly clear to the voting public that a Trump presidency would not be a reckless, neo-con, interventionist third term of George Bush.
Did battlefield casualties cost Hillary the Hawk the blue turned red  battleground states of war weary  Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennslyvania? "Yes," says authors Kriner and Shen (see).
 And the strategy worked brilliantly, in ways that no one not even the fortunate, lucky, unconventional Donald Trump could foresee. True, the overarching, dominant issue that won the late undecided voters for Trump, economy and jobs, was the major factor in his historic election. But in the three key states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania with its suffering, financially stressed blue-collar workers and eroding middle class there was another factor at play that everyone missed until it was discovered in a research paper published last June by political scientists Douglas Kriner and Francis Shen. These two found that Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania were among the most war-weary, anti-Bush states in the Union. Why? Because they suffered very high casualty rates during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. And that was enough to give Trump (who went beyond Obama in 2008 in that he denounced both wars as "total wasteful disasters") the edge he needed to win those states and the presidency. 
In other words, the perception that Trump was dramatically less of a war hawk, less interventionist (he vowed to defeat ISIS) and more truly anti-Bush than Hillary - that he was the less likely of the two to involve us in new costly wars like Iraq and Afghanistan (defeating ISIS would not be such a war) - was a large factor deciding his victory. Amazingly this made Trump seem more radically anti-war than candidate Obama himself who famously said in 2008 that the Afghan war was "the smart, good, right war," while Iraq was the "dumb, wrong, bad war." For Trump, almost sounding like pacifist Code Pink, campaigned on the radical leftist notion that both wars were equally dumb, wrong and bad; both were Bush's catastrophic mistakes - mistakes that he wouldn't repeat as President.
Indeed, Trump at one point said that 9/11 or no 9/11 he would never have gone into Afghanistan. But when pressed  on how he would've responded to the 9/11 attack he said that if he were president in 2001 there would have been no need for a response because the attack would not have happened. Outrageously Trump claimed that his immigration policies restricting Moslem immigration would have kept the 19 al-Qaida hijackers out of the country thus preventing the 9/11 attack and the need to invade Afghanistan.
Though this absurdity was roundly denounced Left, Right and Center it nevertheless had the effect of making Trump seem like a borderline isolationist, outside the mainstream of GOP foreign policy. Indeed, not only did it seem Trump was way to the Left of Bush and his party but to the Left of Obama when he defeated Hillary in 2008. And just as Obama eked out a narrow victory over Hillary, winning more delegates while getting less of the popular vote (see), so did Trump in the general election win more states while getting less of the popular vote. The parallels are striking.
It's incredible how Trump pulled this off. For it began with him insisting against the facts that like Obama he opposed the Iraq war from the start. True, during the 2002 Howard Stern interview Trump gave a soft, ambivalent sounding "yes" to military intervention in Iraq - way short of Hillary's gung-ho, hard-line, get rid of Saddam hawkishness (that she would later recant); but Trump insisting and doubling down that in his heart he was against Iraq from the start, and then accusing Bush from the hard Left that "he knew there were no WMDs in Iraq; and that he lied us into the war" solidified his image as an anti-war dove and man of peace; this made it impossible for Hillary and her media allies to do to Trump what Obama did to McCain in 2008 and Romney four years later: convince voters that Trump would be the third disastrous term of George W. Bush. Indeed, out foxed and out maneuvered by Trump's anti-Bush rhetoric Hillary had to resort to extreme accusations of sexism, racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia and the like to stop him. And it miserably failed. Why? Because she was just too much of an untrustworthy, worrisome war hawk.

Jill Stein warning voters about the thermo nuclear dangers of a Hillary Presidency.
Poor Hillary didn't have a chance. Her first mistake was to accept the job of Secretary of State (SoS). As I show HERE    if she hadn't been SoS she'd be president today. But what hurt her as SoS with the war-weary voters of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin was her backing of Obama's intervention in Libya; this led to the Benghazi disaster that hurt her and later metastisized from the Benghazi hearings into emailgate and Comey's investigation; as I show HERE    Obama's intervention in Libya (backed by Hillary) with the no fly zone emboldened Syrians to rise up violently against Assad where 500,000 have been killed, and caused the refugee crisis for Europe. But then Hillary made another costly blunder: she vowed that as President she would establish a no fly zone over Syria to assist the rebels on the ground (like she and Obama did in Libya) to topple the Assad regime - thus chancing a military conflict with Russia.
This so alarmed dovish, socialist Green Party candidate Jill Stein that she publicly stated "that on the issue of war Trump was the safer candidate than Clinton (see)*." And Trump at several rallies adeptly exploiting Stein said, "She's right about me. Believe me, I'd make a safer President." And in the dovish states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, as Shren and Kirner prove, Trump's anti-war message resonated with enough war weary voters to give him a narrow victory and the 45th Presidency. It's damn amazing.
*Stein probably also had in mind Hillary's threats in 2007 and 2008 to use nuclear weapons in the Middle East (see and see).



Makeup Artist Says Ben Affleck Groped Her at Golden Globes - The Cut 




After predicting yesterday that Harvey Weinstein was the beginning of a shit storm that would blow across Hollywood sweeping up other Hollywood biggies as accusations of sexually abusive behavior would surface from many other victims, six hours after posting my article it started to happen. As reported by The Cut actress Hilaire Burton followed by makeup artist Annamarie Tendler both accused actor Ben Affleck of grabbing and groping them. This is the same hypocritical Ben who criticized Donald Trump for the lewd remarks he privately made on tape about groping women. "No one, anywhere" said Affleck, "should speak about women that way." (Ethical Ben doesn't make lewd comments about women just lewd advances.) Then the actor went on to say that Donald Trump was unfit for the presidency. Keep in mind this is the same Ben Affleck who was toying with the idea of running for the Senate in 2012 to fill the seat in Massachusetts left vacant by John Kerry when he replaced Hillary as Secretary of State (see). Perhaps he declined to run fearing that groping charges would surface to embarrass him. 


But this raises another point: when Affleck's Hollywood pals Matt Damon and Russel Crowe persuaded Sharon Waxman of the New York Times to bury an exposé about Weinstein's sexual misconduct the question we need to ask ourselves is did they do this to protect more than just Weinstein? Did they do it out of self-interest to protect themselves and other stars who grabbed and groped women and young girls knowing that a public scandal over Weinstein would open a Pandora's Box on the industry  hurting them and others? Hollywood is America's Caligulaville, it's "Roman wilderness of pain" and many are running scared as the depths of its depravity is bottomless.



My thanx to X-MAN for the link on Crowe.

Nine days before the New York Times fried psycho control freak Harvey Weinstein for his decade's long orgy of sexually abusing women, degenerate Playboy lifestyle creator Hugh Hefner died - the guy who mainstreamed porn, objectified young women and liberated sex from Judeo-Christian family norms. Could it be that without sick, smutty, hedonistic Hugh they'd be no scandal of Hurricane Harvey II? No swamp cleaning category five cultural shit storm about to engulf liberal, leftist, anything goes Tinsel Town - with many idols crashing to the ground? Isn't Hugh the sick, depraved father of all this decadent West Coast scum? The children of the 60s sexual revolution that he sparked with his magazine war against decency, discipline, restraint and women? The scum who's about to be flushed down the bowl as hundreds if not thousands of actresses and actors great and small come out of the woodwork hurling charges galore (of hetero and homo assault and rape) at big name producers, directors, actors and other  rakes?

This purifying storm is happening my friends symbolized by the wild fires raging across the state. Mark my words, by the time Harvey II ends, and most of the worst devastation is done (ruining dozens of power brokers like Harve and big name stars) Donald Trump in comparison will look like a saint - as he sails straight ahead toward a second term laughing as Hollywood, and its Trump hating media allies, crashes and burns. 








Stephen Colbert: ‘If You’re Ever Having Dinner at Harvey Weinstein’s House, Avoid the Fresh Basil’ | Mediaite



The Late Show host mentioned how Weinstein was fired from The Weinstein Co. and some details about his alleged behavior including how he masturbated into a potted plant in front of a local reporter.

Colbert then brought up the one-year anniversary of the Access Hollywoodtape being leaked and how just this past weekend President Trump dismissed it as “locker room talk.”

“Mr. President, saying ‘locker room’ does not excuse it,” Colbert responded. “That’s like Harvey Weinstein saying ‘Masturbating into potted plants? That’s green house talk.'”


alleged pussy grabbing, LIBERAL DEMOCRAT, wealthy Celebrity Apprentice star Donald Trump fit in perfectly with the sick, dick exposing, rampant sexual abusing, common place Hollywood Harveys because he was one of them. When Trump was a Lib you guys couldn't give a crap what he did; you'd give him a pass on anything short of murdering a Democrat. As long as he  championed abortion rights and the mass killing of unborn kids he could do no wrong to women in your eyes; he could have raped a teen in front of Trump Tower at noon and you'd have secretly praised him for the audacity of the deed, and clamored to be on his show because he was so shameless, cool and sexually mean.


Imagine, Steve, if you had gotten your wish and the Clintons took back the presidency. Predator Bill whose unbridled sexual needs ruined his health turning him into a shadow of his former robust self would certainly have turned the White House into an OPEN FLY ZONE again, and continued to shame and humiliate his wife - America's first lady president.

When Clinton got BJs from Monica in the White House he did it with charm, elegance and presidential class. But crass locker room guy talk from Trump was beneath contempt, and made him unfit to command.

Indeed, Steve, after desecrating the White House you preferred having Bill back there to rude, crude Donald Trump knowing he'd likely defile it again with intern after intern. But Trump was the real perv who'd disgrace the place even if he were a celibate saint because he became a Republican sexist and hater of all things moral, decent and good - true morally, according to you, is having the right political views. Once Trump turned on abortion and Planned Parenthood he was the most monstrous abuser of women around, more criminal than any serial rapist or evil Marquis de Sade. That's how you punks in La La Land think. And now in the Age of Donald Trump it looks like you're going down, and the Hollywood swamp is about to be cleaned of its sordid filth and putrid stink.









Corker: Tillerson, Mattis, and Kelly guard against Trump causing 'chaos' - Business Insider

Bob Corker Says Trump’s Recklessness Threatens ‘World War III’ - 

Senator Corker's explanation to the New York Times for his "chaos" remark on Wednesday was that "President Trump's threats to other countries [Iran, North Korea, Venezuela] could be putting us on a path to [the chaos of] World War III." But the same hysterical warnings of starting a third world war were made about Ronald Reagan over his strong, hard-line, confrontational policies toward the Soviet Union with their arsenal socialist nuclear bombs.

Millions of frightened leftist loons marched and rallied across the country and world trying to stop the "Nuclear Cowboy's reckless military build up of conventional and nuclear arms." Duped by Soviet propaganda and fearing the worst they imagined that Reagan would trigger a thermo nuclear war causing massive death from the nuclear exchange followed catastrophic climate change: a NUCLEAR WINTER that would engulf the Earth with thick layers of smoke and dust blocking the Sun; and plunging global temperatures to frigid ice age levels killing agricultural production and freezing or starving much of humanity to death. Ronald Reagan the "amiable" but dangerous "dunce" as Jonathan Schell said was "leading humanity into a nuclear holocaust where the living would envy the dead."

But the Gipper ignored this madness and stayed the course charging ahead overtly and covertly attempting to economically exhaust and defeat our vicious Soviet enemies. And before Reagan left office the Cold War had ended; and two years later broken, busted Soviet Russia collapsed into socialist bankruptcy and death.  

Axis of evil partners Iran and North Korea 

Unless Donald Trump starts a military conflict with nuclear armed Russia (which the incoherent insane Left is egging him to do), or starts a conflict with China, where else on Earth can he start WW III? With North Korea? Iran? Venezuela? Cuba? They aren't world powers even in combination. And if we went to war with them would Russia or China come to their defense and risk economically crippling nuclear devastation? It's inconceivable!

But is this the frightening nonsense scenario running riot through Corker's paranoid head? Of a nuclear world war fought by major powers over Iran or NoKo?  Has he forgotten that World War II started 21 years from the end of WWI? And that it's been 71 years ( more 3x the number) since the end of WW II and the start of the nuclear age, and there hasn't been a third world war despite the 40 year conflict with Russia and international communism? Why? Because of the BOMB. Because of nuclear deterence. Because such a war would be too devastatingly destructive far exceeding the 110 million killed in both world wars.    

 Either Corker has lost his grip on reality (like so many did in the Reagan era) or he's being dishonest and slanderous in his attack on the President - which many believe is the case. Nevertheless, President Trump's policies and unconventional leadership leading us into World War III is the stuff of fiction and fantasy and shouldn't be taken seriously.








And if on this very special day I were to stab Putin to death with a dagger would it be my knife that killed him?  No. If I were to run him over and kill him with my Hummer would it be my truck that killed him? No. If I were to beat Putin to death with a baseball bat would it be my bat that killed him? No. If I were to pistol whip him to death with the butt of my Glock would it be my gun that killed him? No.


But if I shot Putin to death with my gun would it be the gun that killed him? "Yes," say liberals. And if I happen to be member of the NRA and the gun was manufactured by Smith & Wesson are they morally (if not criminally) complicit in Putin's death along with the bullet maker? "Yes," say liberals. The NRA, Smith & Wesson and the bullet maker must be punished for the crime. Go figure.

Anyway, happy 65th birthday Vlad; and may someone shoot your brains out for all the chaos and confusion you caused in this country.



And once again this weakest and worst president ever, and worse shot in the world (who misses Putin, Assad and ISIS each time he takes aim), is misfiring his anti-gun assault weapon hitting everything but the target. Why does he keep missing again and again and again? Is it due to poor vision? Or to a very shaky hand? No. Far from it. He fails and fails and fails because like catastrophic climate change too few people are listening .
Though roughly 40 percent of 320 million Americans legally own an astounding 300 million guns (which is why Japan was scared to invade our country during the war) the vast, vast majority of the public have not known or ever will know gun violence in their lives. Indeed, there are just not enough deranged, gun packing mass murderers in society breaking into schools, churches and work places killing innocent Americans in droves. And because the vast, overwhelming majority of our citizens are safe from gun crimes "gun control," as poll after poll show, is a minor issue of very little importance to them. Call them stupid, apathetic, inane and every name in the book. They're just not scared that there are millions upon millions of guns out there, and zillions of rounds of ammo, because most of that 99% is owned by law-abiding citizens like themselves who wouldn't harm a fly.
Indeed, anti-gun nuts who insanely demonize guns as the most evil of human inventions (apart from the combustion engine), and gun owners as mentally ill (see), and use such emotionally charged terms as "epidemic" to describe what  rarely occurs in much of the country, are simply ignored by most Americans. Because most have only been targets of water guns as kids and other toy weapons they don't feel the phony, fanatical urgency of anti-gun alarmists (from the president on down) that a bullet is coming their way if we don't clamp down on guns.
                                                       Would Be No Anti-Gun-Nuts
Where gun violence is epidemic and occurs day to day with people crapping in their pants scared for the lives of their families and friends is in our liberal welfare devastated inner cities where violent criminals, gangs and drug abuse abound and too few Americans live (see). As with climate change crazies, anti-gun nuts lack a message that resonates with most Americans: those living in suburbia or good urban areas or in the country. They are uselessly trying to alarm ordinary decent citizens who with good reason wake up each morning without fear that someone is going to randomly kill them or a loved one  with a gun. Nuts like Obama blame their failure to frighten Americans into gun control hysteria on a vast right-wing pro-gun conspiracy: the NRA, Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, Fox, Levin, or other pro-second amendment patriots. The relative rarity of criminal gun violence and death is ignored by the left. It's an inconvenient truth they can't politicize and use; so they need scapegoats to blame for the failure and ineffectiveness of their cause.
Take someone like me for example who's been around a good many years. Apart from a father who was a New York transit cop for 25 years and was once shot at by a thug (who missed him thank God) none of my sisters, cousins, uncles, aunts, friends or neighbors have ever been victims of gun violence. NOT ONE! And my experience isn't unique as it's shared by most Americans.  Way too few of us and those we love and know are being shot to death or injured on our safe city streets, or in our schools, work places, shopping malls and homes. That America is like the Old Wild West is an ideological myth of the left. And that's why Obama and the anti-gun nuts keep firing at guns and missing the mark wasting their time and  instead hitting themselves in the
Below you will notice that in Pew's 23 top public policy priorities Gun Control isn't even listed. In other words, Gun Control is pretty much a non issue with the American people for the reasons stated above.

Public’s Policy Priorities for 2015




"He Never Said Moron!" Heather Nauert Slams CNN Reporter Over Rex Tillerson News Story - YouTube

(Gates, Panetta and Hagel) walk out on Barack Obama in disgust?
He was a MORON about Russia: stupidly tried to reset relations with an expansionist, neo-imperialist, murdering regime headed by an America hating ex KGB thug wanting to make Russia great again (see).
He was a MORON about Poland and Czech Republic: canceled missile defense shield to appease Vladimir Putin (see).
He was a MORON about China: allowed it to build illegal military bases in the South China Sea and
off the coast of Somalia (see).
He was a MORON about Iran: signing a nuke deal with the Islamic fundamentalist terrorist mullahs when they violated 27 treaties and multilateral agreements since their revolution (see); and are spreading their revolution across the Middle East while colluding with the Taliban in killing US troops in Afghanistan (see and see).
He was a MORON about Iraq: withdrawal of US forces creating power vacuums filled by ISIS and Iran (see).
He was a MORON about Syria: the red line.
He was a MORON about Libya: intervention.
He was a MORON about Benghazi: caused by a video.
He was a MORON about Afghanistan: half ass unsupported bungled surge (see); said he ended war (see).
He was a MORON about Egypt: deserted Mubarak, supported Morsi and radical Islamic Moslem Brotherhood.
He was a MORON about Yemen and Somalia: said they were success stories (see and see).
He was a Moron about Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas: said he was a peace partner for Israel (see).


He was a MORON about al Qaida: said they were decimated and destroyed (see).
He was a MORON about ISIS: said they were a "JV team (see)" and needed jobs (see).
He was a MORON about the Ft. Hood Massacre: said it was work place violence.
He was a MORON about the killing of Osama bin Ladin: ordered after seven months of indecisiveness and dithering in which time he could have blown the mission (see).
He was a MORON about Islam: it's a religion of justice and peace interwoven with the founding of our country (see).
This MORON inherited from George W. Bush a relatively stable and peaceful Iraq and Middle East. When he left office Iraq was in turmoil and at war again; and the region was a vast, horrific, blood drenched killing field of ethnic and sectarian violence and strife where 600,000 died.
And lastly, Obama was a MORON about the U.S. Military: drastically downsized it as the world was becoming more dangerous (see); imposed on it restricted rules of combat engagement that killed U.S. troops (see); and used it as a laboratory for social experiments in a demeaning and demoralizing way (see).
Because Barack Obama was an absolute MORON on diplomatic, defense and geopolitical issues three Defense Secretaries walked out on him in disgust; and he justly earned the contempt and distrust of our service men and women who gave him an approval rating of 15% (see and see) - the lowest in U.S. history.
Indeed, U.S. history has had its share of feckless, incompetent, blundering MORONS disgracing the White House. But arguably none have been more utterly MORONIC than Barack Hussein Obama.








as a cruel, heartless, malevolent leader with a racial animus toward minorities that underlies his supposed "ineffective response" to Maria ravaged Puerto Rico goes something like this:
'Don't be fooled by yesterday's speech on the Las Vegas Mandalay Massacre; President Trump felt as much compassion and empathy for its victims as he feels for the millions of suffering Latino victims of Hurricane Maria which devastated Puerto Rico. After eight months in office the public has seen first hand the bottomless depth of Trump's inhumanity on such issues as climate change, healthcare, immigration, refugees, the federal budget and now in his monstrous neglect of Puerto Rico's suffering 3.6 million people - most of whom have been without food, water, electricity and medical supplies since the storm's end. Maria isn't just Trump's Katrina, it's his genocidal holocaust - the darkest hour of his presidency that will live on in infamy.'
But from the office of Puerto Rico's Governor Rossello the reports we're getting is of a very different Puerto Rico. We're hearing about a Puerto Rico suffering from the greatest logistical nightmare in US disaster history, but nevertheless recovering and very slowly and painfully returning to life; a Puerto Rico with 11 major highways open and traffic flowing; a Puerto Rico with over 700 of 1100 gas stations with petroleum serving motorists; a Puerto Rico with 300 pharmacies selling vitally needed drugs and medical supplies; a Puerto Rico where 65% of food/ big box/retail stores like Walmart are selling food and goods to consumers; a Puerto Rico where 59 of its 69 hospitals are operational and treating the sick and injured. And all of this is due to what the Governor Rossello says is the "quick response" of the Trump administration which started before Maria hit with anticipatory navel measures that proved tremendously life saving (see).
Moreover, according to Rossello (as we heard at the relief meeting with President Trump today) the official death toll from Maria is a low 16, unchanged from September 24th (see); while this number is expected to climb, with some saying the actual count is more like 60-150 with most of it die directly from the storm*, it's way below the hysterical holocaust levels presumed by the hate Trump media. In fact, it's way below the 312 deaths caused by Hurricane Okeechobee that hit Puerto Rico in 1928 (see); way below the 3300 deaths caused by the San Ciriaco Hurricane of 1899 (see); indeed, it's way below Hurricane Katrina and its 1800 deaths that the media stupidly compares Maria to; and lastly, it's well below the 199 people killed by hurricanes Harvey and Irma that the American public give President Trump high marks for handling - thousands could have perished if it weren't for his superb relief effort.
*According to CNN as of 10-11-17 the death toll has risen to 45 with 113 people unaccounted for (see).  
How many more people on Puerto Rico would be dead or dying if President Trump were the heartless, racist, right-wing, nazi, minority hating psychopath MSM and San Juan's hyperpartisan, media darling, wing nut mayor says he is? Hundreds if not thousands would be dying from starvation, dehydration and disease making Maria a worse catastrophe than Katrina, Okeechobee, San Ciriaco and Harvey and Irma combined.
The Democrats and their propaganda arm in the destroy Trump media mortified by the high approval ratings the President received for his tremendously effective response to Harvey and Irma are desperate to reverse and destroy that; and are hoping that Maria could be used as a means to that end. But despite all the lies, fake news and hyperventilating about Trump being criminally negligent ('he could do more but won't because of racism.' some say*) they are miserably failing; and after today with President Trump and Melania in Puerto Rico drawing attention to the Herculean effort and progress being made by FEMA Trump's approval rating on Maria is likely to match or surpass the 55% he received for Harvey and Irma from two separate polling groups: Marist (seeand You/Gov (see).
Indeed, if the public is rating Trump so highly for handling two hurricanes that killed 199 people and did billions in damage it's not unreasonable to expect he'll receive ratings at least as high for his response to a terribly destructive storm that killed far less people.
* I've heard it said (and it's ridiculous of course)  that Trump is dragging his feet on helping the people of Puerto Rico because they voted for Marco Rubio during the Republican primary.  
In sum, considering that Puerto Rico has been recklessly irresponsible with its finances, and before Maria was the busted, broken, bankrupt socialist Greece of the Caribbean Sea (with a deteriorating infrastructure of ports, roads, highways and bridges) Donald Trump backed by the American people is showing an extraordinary degree of heart and compassion which history and the battered people of that island are never likely to forget.




when Wall Street prospered while Main Street languished  couldn't give a damn how much President Trump's tax reform plan (once its finalized) may or may not benefit him personally. If it supercharges the economy boosting growth, productivity, wages and good paying jobs  improving their lives and reversing their decade long decline then the 30 states that made Trump president will vote for him again - and this time Michigan won't be won by a hair. 


It's a fact that historically presidents have benefited politically from huge tax cuts: In 1924 Calvin Coolidge clobbered Democratic challenger John Davis following massive slashes in taxes, spending and regulations that ended the Wilson Depression and unleashed the Roaring Twenties (see). 40 years later in 1964 President Johnson trounced GOP challenger Barry Goldwater in a 44 state landslide; this followed the implementation of JFK's top to bottom across the board tax cuts that more than doubled GDP from the Eisenhower years (see). In 1984 President Reagan crushed challenger Walter Mondale in a 49 state sweep after making deep cuts in everyone's taxes that ended double-digit unemployment and inflation - the worst recession since the Great Depression (see). Moreover, in 2004 George W. Bush defeated challenger John Kerry in a somewhat close race due to tax cuts which ended the recession caused by 9/11 and Clinton's dotcom market crash (see).

Ironically, Barack Obama in 2010, reneging from political necessity on a campaign pledge, extended ALL the hated Bush tax rates for a period of two years. By preventing Bush's rates from expiring Obama due to a weak recovery from the Great Recession (that lost his party the House) very likely prevented a double dip recession and the loss of his presidency to Mitt Romney.

Indeed, though the US economy under Donald Trump is improving without tax cuts, due mostly to the elimination of growth killing Obama era regulations (and markets, businesses, consumers and the Fed anticipating better times ahead) what happened before going back to Coolidge and three other presidents is likely to happen again: the transformational reform our tax system will win Trump a second term. Now the Congress must do its job and pass his plan for making the middle class prosperous and great again.

 Obama Signs Bill To Extend Bush Tax Cuts - CBS News









If I were a vicious anti-Trump derangement nut and global warming extremist terrified of Trump and his policies (as is Jennifer Lawrence and others) I'd be blaming the destructive intensity of Hurricane Maria squarely on him for the following reasons 1. Pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord to phase out the use of fossil fuels; 2. Rolling back Obama era EPA regulations on coal production and cutting CO2 emissions; and 3. Vigorously advancing toward his goal of making America energy independent and turning it into a fossil fuel hyperpower - NUMBER ONE in all areas of "dirty" energy production to supercharge the US economy.
If I were a Trump hating psycho I'd say that his pro-fossil fuel agenda isn't fooling nature; and that the increase in US CO2 emissions, and coal, oil and gas production since he took office, has had an effect on the weather and contributed to this hurricane season; that it's disrupted and effected the stability and delicate balance of the climate just enough to trigger the ferocity of this year's hurricane activity - making Harvey, Irma and especially Maria more intense and deadly than they would have been had Hillary won the election, or Obama (the man who lowered the rising seas) continued in office.  
Never mind that in 2015 when 195 mostly hypocritical nations signed the Paris Climate Accord (called a "fraud" by former NASA's James Hansen) mankind's consumption of fossil fuels hit an all time record (see); and that 2016 was most likely another record-setting year (the data isn't available yet) as third world "dirty industrialization" (China, India, Indonesia, Brazil, etc.) unstoppably moves huffing and puffing ahead gigantically increasing atmospheric CO2 emissions (see).
   In other words, if there's a link between human CO2 and Harvey, Irma and Maria (for which there is no evidence) Trump can't be blamed for it as he's a new comer on a world stage; where human industrial carbon output (despite Obama's and the EU's efforts to cut it) are rising with world demand, and the millions of indigent human beings needing the wealth created by fossil fuels to lift them out of poverty.
Now if the nutters aren't directly blaming Trump's climate policies for Harvey, Irama and especially Maria (which has devastated Puerto Rico) then it's his HEART that's the problem. With President Trump's approval rating rising in every poll because of his "leadership and compassion" in handling the disasters caused by Harvey and Irma on the mainland CNN this morning tried to rain on Trump's parade and show that in his response to Maria ravaged Puerto Rico he has been an unfeeling, cruel, heartless bastard and that this disaster is his Katrina thrice over.
Indeed, Chris Cuomo after hearing the hysterical unhinged rants of San Juan's incompetent mayor to the Trump administration on how desperate things are in her city concluded that Trump's response has been terribly short of what it should and could be; and that the problem is his heartlessness and lack of compassion and empathy; that he's not feeling the pain and suffering of Puerto Ricans enough; and that he needs to have his "heart broken" and humanized. Meaning what? That he had heart for the people of Texas and Florida where he's been roundly praised for his response to Harvey and Irma? But he's completely unfeeling toward Puerto Ricans, and that it's a racial thing - evidence that he's bigoted against Hispanics and couldn't care if they live or die?
But Puerto Rico's progressive Democratic governor begs to differ. Contrary to CNN and the brain broken Trump hate media, Governor Ricardo Rossello gives President Trump high marks for his "quick," proactive massive response to Maria. "The Trump Administration," said Rossello, " has given me everything I asked for; and has done everything POSSIBLE to help Puerto Rico." Indeed, the governor has said that Trump has pushed FEMA to its limits of what it can POSSIBLY do just now given the distribution problems caused by the storm; and that the ball now is in Congresses court "to come up with an aid and recovery package" for the island. In other words, Trump's response to Maria has been as competent and praiseworthy as was his response to Harvey and Irma in Texas and Florida. Unlike anti-Trump derangement nuts Rossello refuses to play politics with this disaster and fault the President for not doing the IMPOSSIBLE and make Maria look like Trump's Katrina. No. Maria isn't Trump's Katrina; it's the third in a series of bright shinning moments - signs of a great presidency in the making on its way to a second  term.
 In an interview with PBS Newshour this eveningRosselló thanked the Trump administration for their prompt response:
JOHN YANG: Governor, are you getting all the aid you need or getting it fast enough from the states?
GOV. RICARDO ROSSELLO: First of all, we are very grateful for the administration. They have responded quickly.
The president has been very attentive to the situation, personally calling me several times. FEMA and the FEMA director have been here in Puerto Rico twice. As a matter of fact, they were here with us today, making sure that all the resources in FEMA were working in conjunction with the central government.
We have been working together. We have been getting results. The magnitude of this catastrophe is enormous. This is going to take a lot of help, a lot of collaboration. So,  my call is to congressmen and congresswomen to take action quickly and conclusively with an aid package for Puerto Rico.
We are in the midst of potentially having a humanitarian crisis here in Puerto Rico which would translate to a humanitarian crisis in the United States. So, I call upon Congress to take action immediately. You know, Puerto Ricans are proud U.S. citizens.
On Saturday, the Associated Press reported:
Rossello and other officials praised the federal government for planning its response in detail before the storm hit, a contrast with what Puerto Rico has long seen as the neglect of 3.4 million Americans living in a territory without a vote in Congress or the electoral college.
"This is the first time we get this type of federal coordination," said Resident Commission Jenniffer Gonzalez, Puerto Rico's non-voting representative in Washington.
This is from American Maritime Officers Currents,
CNBC, CBS reports reveal the truth about relief supplies in Puerto Rico: The much-needed cargo was delivered by Jones Act carriers long before Wednesday, and ongoing service has brought even more; distribution over land by truck is the actual obstacle separating Americans from crucial supplies.

In a televised report available on the CNBC website, the network reported thousands of containers are stranded in port in Puerto Rico awaiting distribution to island residents. This much-needed cargo was delivered by Jones Act carriers with dedicated service to Puerto Rico. Deliveries began as soon as the ports were opened to vessels last weekend and are continuing. 

A broadcast report by CBS News Correspondent David Begnaud circulated via Twitter with the following introduction is available through the link below: When @ricardorossello told us there was food water & medicine sitting in the port of Puerto Rico, we went looking. Here's what we found. # 





After the storm President Trump quickly moved tens and thousands of tons of food, water and medical supplies to San Juan and other ports for distribution. But corrupt and incompetent mayors like San Juan's unhinged Carmen Cruz didn't make keeping access to Puerto Rico's ports a priority as the storm closed in. In a desperate attempt to hide her incompetence and keep her job Cruz is using the Trump Administration as a scapegoat for her failures - and is so extreme in her hatred of Trump that she won't attend FEMA meetings. Pathetic.


Action Jackson writes

Maria/Puerto Rico is no Katrina. Not by a long shot.

New Orleans has multiple ground routes into the city. That means recovery operations moves into the city at 40 to 60 miles per hour. ALL recovery operations supporting Puerto Rico’s recovery cover the last 1,100 miles via surface shipping moving at 20 miles per hour – max.

And once the recovery assets arrive in Puerto Rico they MUST flow through a single port to be off loaded.

The logistic movements into the two cities are totally different BEFORE the you break the bulk cargo containers down into truck/people sized loads.


Supplies from the U.S. sitting undistributed at ports in Puerto Rico.

But there's the impossible problem of impassible roads and the terrible dearth of trucks and drivers to distribute supplies caused by Maria. With good reason Puerto Rico's governor gave President Trump high marks for acting quickly in giving him "everything he asked for" and bringing tons of vital supplies to PR's ports ready for wide distribution when the means of delivery are available. By the time the President lands in San Juan next week much of this problem will be resolved; and with the world looking on seeing the President pointing to all the great good that's being done he will look like a hero saving the island and its people; and the malice and hatred of the anti-Trump media once again will be defeated.




The destroy Trump media's attempt to turn Maria into Trump's Katrina by blaming him for not doing the impossible is not going to work especially with first hand accounts like the following by Puerto Rican born Colonel Michael Valle.

Speaking today exclusively and live from Puerto Rico, is Puerto Rican born and raised, Colonel Michael A. Valle (”Torch”), Commander, 101st Air and Space Operations Group, and Director of the Joint Air Component Coordination Element, 1st Air Force, responsible for Hurricane Maria relief efforts in the US commonwealth with a population of more than 3 million. Since the ‘apocalyptic’ Cat 4 storm tore into the spine of Puerto Rico on September 20, Col. Valle has been both duty and blood bound to help. 

Col. Valle is a firsthand witness of the US Department of Defense (DoD) response supporting FEMA in Puerto Rico, and as a Puerto Rican himself with family members living in the devastation, his passion for the people is second to none. “It’s just not true,” Col. Valle says of the major disconnect today between the perception of a lack of response from Washington verses what is really going on on the ground. “I have family here. My parents’ home is here. My uncles, aunts, cousins, are all here. As a Puerto Rican, I can tell you that the problem has nothing to do with the US military, FEMA, or the DoD.”
While Governor Rossello praised President Trump for the speed at which he acted in response to Maria, what is less known is the anticipatory naval measures he took to help the island in case the worst happened.
 This is provided by Navy Captain Jerry Hendrix in the following Q&A:

>>TH: So, it seems like everybody has blasted Trump administration’s response to the Puerto Rico crisis. Has that criticism been fair?

>>JH: No, I don’t think so. First of all, there was a fair amount of anticipatory action that is not being recognized. Amphibious ships, including the light amphibious carriers Kearsarge and Wasp and the amphibious landing ship dock Oak Hill were at sea and dispatched to Puerto Rico ahead of the hurricane’s impact.

>>These are large ships that have large flight decks to land and dispatch heavy-lift CH-53 helicopters to and from disaster sites. They also have big well-decks — exposed surfaces that are lower than the fore and aft of the ship — from which large landing craft can be dispatched to shore carrying over 150 tons of water, food and other supplies on each trip. These are actually the ideal platforms for relief operations owing to their range of assets. The ships, due to their designs to support Marine amphibious landings in war zones, also have hospitals onboard to provide medical treatment on a large scale. That these ships were in the area should be viewed as a huge positive for the administration and the Department of Defense. . . .

>>Puerto Rico is an island that suffers from its position in the middle of the Caribbean and its physical separation from the U.S. Its roads were in disrepair and its electrical grid was antiquated prior to the hurricane. The island has also suffered for years from ineffective local government and rising local territorial debt.

>>The Navy used to operate a large Navy base there, Naval Station Roosevelt Roads. I spent six months on the island in 1993, but when the island’s population protested the presence of the training range at nearby Vieques Island, the Navy shuttered the base, taking $300 million a year out of the Puerto Rican economy.

>>If they still had that Navy base they’d be in better shape, but local politicos wanted it gone.



Jimmy Kimmel Applauds Susan Collins for ‘Putting People Ahead of Party’ With Graham-Cassidy Decision · Mediaite

Thank you @SenatorCollins for putting people ahead of party. We are all in your debt.

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La., participate in a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Monday, Jan. 23, 2017, to announce the Patient Freedom Act of 2017, a possible GOP replacement bill for the Affordable Care Act. J. Scott Applewhite AP

It just gets worse and worse for brain-dead, pizza expert Democrat puppet/propagandist Jimmy Kimmel who is way out of his depth when it comes to the issue of healthcare reform and doesn't know his ass from his elbow. Not only is he for repealing and replacing  the collpsing Obamacare train wreck with single payer healthcare - which flopped seven times in California, and in 11 other states - but now he's laughably found a new healthcare hero in Maine's Liberal Republican Senator Susan Collins for opposing and dooming Graham-Cassidy before the September 30th budget reconciliation deadline. Why is it laughable? Because Jimmy it seems knows next to nothing about this woman he's so effusively praising. It seems that Jimmy is ignorant that Senator Collins along with her party was opposed to Obamacare from the start seeing what a disaster it would be; and seeing that she and the GOP were right she fought Obamacare every inch of the way wanting it repealed and replaced with most of her party. Indeed, Jimmy it appears doesn't know that Collins watching Obamacare collapsing of its own weight ironically, three days after Trump's inaugural, introduced with Senator Cassidy a comprehensive replacement plan for the ailing, failing program called "The Patient Freedom Act of 2017."


Indeed, what Jimmy Kimmel doesn't seem to know and wants to stay oblivious to is that Collins believes that her bill is the right one for America; and if Mitch McConnell were to replace Graham-Cassidy with Collins-Cassidy as the path forward that Susan Collins (who is considering running for governor of Maine see) unquestionably would vote for it as the right law for America; and Jimmy the puppet, taking his talking points from Chuck Schumer, would do a 180 on Collins demonizing and excoriating her and her bill (like he's done to Cassidy and Graham and their bill) as a heartless, right-wing, deceiving bitch who wants to deny health insurance to millions of Americans and those with preexisting conditions (which would be a blatant lie as it was with Cassidy). Jimmy would say apologetically to his dumb, stupid addle brained audience that he doesn't understand what happened to Collins; that he was fooled into believing she was a brave and sensible Senator who put people above political self-interest and party politics when all the time she was scheming to replace Graham-Cassidy with her own bill because she wants to be Maine's governor. Indeed, Jimmy would be repeating word for word what puppet master Chuck Schumer said in opposition to Collins-Cassidy back in January - without first reading the bill (see) :

“It is nearly impossible to keep the benefits of the Affordable Care Act without keeping the whole thing. Ultimately, this proposal [Collins-Cassidy] is an empty facade that would create chaos – not care – for millions of Americans (see).”


To be sure, that evening we'd hear Jimmy the puppet on his unfunny show referring to Collins-Cassidy as the "CHAOS BILL;" and Collins and Cassidy as "SENATORS CHAOS" wanting to mindlessly smash Obamacare to bits, destabilize the US healthcare system, and deprive insurance or essential life saving benefits to millions. Jimmy would say 'If you think Graham-Cassidy was bad Collins-Cassidy is much, much worse and would hurt even more people.' In other words, though hypocrite Jimmy wants to repeal and replace Obamacare with single payer believing it's the ultimate solution for insuring everyone while cutting costs (which it wouldn't do) Obamacare being the next best thing should stay in place pretty much as it is making little adjustments and cosmetic changes that would be spun as profound system saving reforms while it continues to disintegrate.


Indeed, Obamacare for Jimmy though not ideal at best is a means to the greater end of totalitarian, single payer, centralized government one size fits all control; whereas Collins-Cassidy like Graham-Cassidy (two forms of federalism) moving in the opposite direction would return more power and money to the states, letting them decide what healthcare systems best suits their people. Indeed, if Graham-Cassidy is replaced by Collins-Cassidy Jimmy following Schumer will call it Trumpcare, say that it's racist, sexist and evil as hell; and warn us that if it replaces Obamacare tens and thousands of Americans would die in the streets untreated for sickness and disease from lacking health insurance. This is what this putz would do to Susan Collins the woman he's now praising (along with John McCain) as a Republican hero.







“Somehow Japan and England and Canada and Germany, France, they all [with single payer socialized medical systems] figured health care out...... "
Late night leftist La La Land millionaire healthcare clown Jimmy Kimmel admitting his utter stupidity and ignorance on the issue of healthcare reform joked on his show that he's "an expert on eating pizza, not healthcare." And so he clownishly is. For who but an unfunny, know nothing, leftist dope and resident of LA would point to single payer countries like Canada, England and France as models for the USA when single payer badly flopped in Jimmy's own state of California - flopped not once, not twice, not thrice, but a total of SEVEN times over the last 25 years (see). 25 years and 7 attempts at single payer and no leftist mastermind or genius (who makes Jimmy look like spit) can figure out how to make it work. Why? Because of the prohibitive, staggering, economy crushing costs. But moronic, unfunny, pizza expert Jimmy, who lectures the GOP, you and me and physicians like Senator Cassidy on healthcare (and calls him a liar when he clearly distorts what he says see) wants Obamacare repealed like Donald Trump; but stupidly replaced with unworkable single payer as the national system for America.
Heck, only a ridiculous unfunny asinine klutz would want for 320 million Americans what can't work for the 40 million folks of America's largest state. Indeed, California's latest and 7th stab at single payer, Senate Bill 562 (opposed by progressive Democratic Governor Jerry Brown) had an unfinancable price tag of $400 billion in start-up costs, and another $200 billion to sustain it annually (this would increase over time see). Think about it: in the first two years single payer would cost California's over burdened tax payers $600 billion (more than three times the state budget of $185 billion), and $200 billion every year thereafter.
Think about it: with a population of 40 million and roughly 13.6 million taxpayers the costs for California single payer would be (if evenly spread) $30,000 per tax payer in the first year, and $15,000 every year in perpetuity for annual costs. If SB 562 was passed and signed into law the next bill would be for the largest tax hike of any state in US history; this would effectively drive millions of citizens and thousands of businesses (but not rich clown Jimmy) out of the state leaving it a wreck like a San Andreas earthquake. In other words, the cure of single payer for California is worse than the disease of millions lacking health insurance (who get healthcare anyway); for the impact on California's economy (with so much money flowing to Sacramento away from consumers and the private sector) would be a jobs killing, depression causing disaster - for everyone but rich, unfunny, pizza men like Jimmy. And this is why Governor Brown refused to endorse the bill; and why it was shelved in the State Assembly following SB 840, 810, 2123 and other failed single payer bills over the years.
Failed Single Payer Green Mountain Care in deep blue Democrat Vermont.
But California, which is batting 0-7 on single payer, isn't alone in this fiasco; single payer has met with the same fate in 11 other states: Vermont, New York, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Oregon, Colorado, Hawaii and Montana (see). In other words, the allegedly greatest, best, most ethical and moral health insurance system ever devised by man is batting 0-18 in the United States - striking out a total of 11 times in 11 states and 7 times in the Golden State. No one in any of these 12 states, despite all of their brainpower, expertise (and the example of single payer countries like Canada, Great Britain, Sweden, France, Spain and Australia, etc.), could figure out how to make it affordable for their citizens. And if we follow clowns like ignorant, stupid single payer Jimmy it's the Republican's fault, or the insurers or Big Pharma or Fox News. The problem is never with single payer itself which is on the brink of collapse in Great Britain - rated as the number 1 healthcare system in the world (see and see).

Think about it: "The states," as Supreme Court Justice Lewis Brandeis said, "are the laboratories of democracy." If single payer can't be made to work in any one of 12 states (and 7 times in our largest state) how could it work  border to border, coast to coast for the nation unless we massively raise federal taxes to pay for this monstrosity, and greatly damage the national economy and struggling middle class? Is it any wonder Schumer and Pelosi remain non-committal on single payer (see and see)? They know it's a loser politically that could severely damage Democrat chances of winning back the Congress and White House. Fixing Obamacare is politically safer than centralized socialized medicine which the public didn't want before Obamacare became law (and didn't want Obamacare either), and don't want especially now. 
But the Jimmy Kimmels of the country are dauntless. Making the typical tired ignorant argument that single payer works in other countries and can be made to work for us is just plain brain dead dumb. Not only does single payer not work well in many other countries (where they have rationing, scarcity, long waiting lines, higher taxes and government subsidies to make insurance and drugs affordable see and see), but huge differences in population, tax structure, military expenditures, debt load and unfunded liabilities are by themselves sound, sensible reasons why single payer is wrong for America nationally as it is for states individually.
Police battle rioters in broken, busted, bankrupt socialist Venezuela.
Indeed, America with the federal government $20 trillion in debt and with $107 trillion in unfunded liabilities ($27 trillion of which is Medicare) a one size fits all massive bureaucratic centralized government-run single payer system would break this nation completely (see). We'd end up like bankrupt, busted socialist Venezuela and Greece with blood, rioting and chaos in the streets - with everyone having health insurance but many unable to get healthcare when sick because the government is exhausted and broke (see and see).
No. The public is against socialized medicine. Given the enormous disgust and mistrust of the American people with Washington and the federal government - which has done massive harm to the "disappearing middle class" - the national mood is one of revolt, and against giving the government more power than it has over their lives and fortunes. Washington is way too powerful, spending way too much way beyond its means; it's mismanaging the nation's finances and future and been dysfunctional for years - and the trust is gone.
Indeed, the national mood is toward deregulation and decentralization with more money and power flowing back to the states from DC. And that's why despite what Jimmy Kimmel says (and many associations oppose) that Graham-Cassidy, a federalist approach to fixing our healthcare system, is in sync with the anti-Washington spirit of the times, and the needs of individual states to decide their own healthcare fate. If a state likes its Obamacare it can keep it; if it wants single payer it can have that too. It's a practical, down to earth (not perfect) approach for fixing our healthcare mess - made worse by seven years of Obamacare which even pizza clown Jimmy wants to replace, but with a single payer nationwide system from outer space.


"A huge impediment to solving the [global] climate crisis is Fox News," says Science Guy Bill Nye - who also accuses the network  of suffering from "psychological delusions" and feeding its audience "a steady diet of vitriol and paranoia.'
Dear Mr. Science Guy,
assuming that you're doomsday hysteria is justified and that there is a worsening, catastrophic "climate crisis" imperiling the planet caused by human industrial activity and CO2 emissions, how, for God's sake, is Fox News a "huge impediment" to resolving it? 
I mean get real! How, for example, is Fox to blame for the failure and flop of Europe's huge, costly, ten-year  experiment in renewable energy (wind, water and solar)? Indeed, despite the EU spending up to $1 trillion of tax payers money (to subsidize the transition to a green energy future) how is Fox responsible for rising Euro CO2 emissions (see) and the soaring cost of Euro energy for consumers (increasing 63% in nine years see) when both were supposed to steadily fall, establishing Europe as the model, world saving, green energy economy to prevent Climageddon? In short, how is Fox to blame for Europe becoming a "green energy basket case" - a model to avoid?
And do tell me how is Fox to blame for the revolution taking place in third world developing states? How is it to blame for the "dirty," fossil fuel powered, CO2 "polluting" industrializing of China, India, Indonesia, Brazil and other poor developing countries? How is Fox responsible for these four countries alone increasing CO2 emissions by 5 billion tons since 2005 while Europe decreased there's by 600 million tons  making its reductions insignificant and meaningless - negating what good it allegedly did? Did Fox cause the Industrial Revolution which these nations are understandably and responsibly emulating as they lift millions of people out of poverty, illiteracy and misery like the Western World did long ago? I feel embarrassed even asking such questions.
And while I'm on the subject of the third world what does Fox have to do with America, Canada, Europe, Australia and Japan, etc. lacking the tens and trillions of dollars needed to transition the third world to green energy economies so they can stop their massively growing "dangerous carbon polluting" of the Earth (see)? Is it Fox's fault that America, Europe and Japan are drowning in fiscal debt to the tune of $45 trillion and can't afford this staggering transfer of wealth without massively raising taxes on working class people and greatly damaging their economies (see)?  
And please tell me what on earth does Fox have to do with fossil fuels being the cheapest, most efficient, reliable and wealth creating form of energy known to man? They were a gift from God and Nature for the development of human civilization and fueled the greatest creative epoch in history. Is it Fox's fault that wind, water and solar power (as we see in Europe) aren't competitive with coal, oil and gas, and perhaps won't be so for decades (see)? Is it Fox's fault that electric and hybrid vehicles are too expensive for common use? Does Fox set market prices favoring fossils over renewables? Does it ban the advertising of green cars on its network? Does it have that much power over markets? Is it that anti-green? You can't be stupid enough not to answer no. 
Indeed, Mr. Science Guy, what does Fox have to do with the global consumption of oil, gas and coal combined breaking all existing records in 2015 (see), and most likely surpassing that in 2016 (the data isn't available yet)? What does Fox have to do with more people in developing states electrifying their homes by coal-fired plants (see), and buying gas guzzling cars by the millions for the first time  (see and see)? Is it any wonder that atmospheric CO2 reached the 410 ppm mark in March? And it's going to climb even higher with no help from Fox - as it makes the planet more fruitful and green a blessing to hungry and starving human beings (see).
In other words, Mr. Science Guy, what does Fox have to do with your impractical, ridiculous green energy utopianism? How is Fox to blame for alarmists like you having no practical, feasible, realistic fiscal, financial and economic solutions for the climate crisis you envision in your troubled, fevered, Fox obsessed mind? Really sir, who is it that's delusional with serious truth and reality problems living mentally in deep space light years from Earth?
The truth is this: If "delusional," "denialist,"  "anti-science" Fox were to suddenly disappear from network TV nothing would change; you'd still lack an answer and concrete plan for preventing "Climageddon," or the "Venus Syndrome," or the "Sixth Extinction" - or whatever name you want to call the frightening, destabilized chaotic climate, and carbon caused future life destroying holocaust that's deranging your brain.
Face the facts Mr. Science Guy: the global warming movement was doomed before it began. The vilifying of Fox, Breitbart, the Koch Brothers, Anthony Watts, Rush Limbaugh, conservative talk radio and thousands of skeptical internet sites like mine are scapegoats for the failure of your bankrupt cause to frighten mankind away from the use of beneficial fossil fuels with visions of uncertain far off global doom. Alarmists like you have tried every scare tactic, deception and trick in the book to make mankind deathly afraid of CO2 (an invisible trace gas and plant food) and nothing has worked. Instead, of decarbonizing we have the runaway use of fossil fuels expanding the work of lifting all boats and millions of poor folks in third world shit holes. As another doomsday climate science guy (Guy McPherson) rightly says (see): in the climate wars between anti-industrial warmists and pro-industrial deniers 
And so it has as the evidence shows. Fossil fuel powered industrial capitalism roars head irreversibly spreading progress to the remotest and most primitive parts of the world; it's too powerful, unstoppable, there's nothing better to replace it. And until that changes, which seems a long ways off, all you can do to calm your fears, and find some peace of mind is to hope that we "deniers" are right (which we absolutely are); and that you, your declining movement and hysterical doomsday climate "science" got fossil fuels and CO2 catastrophically wrong.  
All the best,



In the debate about climate change, and to advance their hysterical socialist agenda against fossil fuel powered industrial capitalism, AGW extremists like Al Gore, Bill Nye, Michael Mann, Jim Hansen and Stephen Hawking (who warns that Trump if not stopped will turn Earth into a hellish Venus) link without evidence the intensity and behavior of cyclones and hurricanes like Harvey and Irma to human CO2 emissions and global warming. But what they conveniently ignore and don't want the public to know is the truth about hurricanes and cyclones during periods of global cooling and semi-ice age conditions. That from the Little Ice Age of the 16th to the mid 19th century (which was very cold and global in scope with the oceans losing vast amounts of heat see) to the periods of 1880 -1910 and 1940-1975 (see) when rising global temperatures went into reverse and cooled, some of the most destructive hurricanes and cyclones in human history took place.  
Indeed, to start with, of the top ten deadliest storms known to man half happened during periods of global cooling. These five GLOBAL COOLING DISASTERS are as follows:
1.The Bhola Cyclone (the very worst ever), which hit East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) with Category 4 winds killing a staggering 500,000 people, occurred in 1970 - 30 years into the mid-20th century's 35 year cooling period (see).
2. The Haiphong Typhoon which hit Vietnam in 1881 and killed 300,000 people occurred 2 years into the 1880 - 1910 30 year cooling period (see).
3. The Calcutta Cyclone of 1737 which killed an estimated 300,000 people occurred 113 years before the end of the Little Ice Age in 1850 (see).
4. The Great Indian Cyclone of 1839 which also killed an estimated 300,000 people occurred 11 years before the end of the Little Ice Age (see).
5. Typhoon Nina of 1975 (the 4th deadliest tropical cyclone on record) which landed on mainland China and Taiwan  killing 229,000 people, occurred at the very end of the mid-20th century's global cooling period (see).
Similarly, of the top 12 deadliest hurricanes to hit the continental United States five occurred during periods of global cooling. These are as follows:
1. The Galveston Hurricane of 1900 (the deadliest in US history) which killed up to 12,000 people, occurred 20 years into the 1880 - 1910 30 year cooling period (see).
2. Hurricane Audrey of 1957 (the 6th deadliest storm in US history) hit the Texas/Louisiana border killing 416 17 years into the mid 20th century's global cooling period (see) .
3. The Great Atlantic Hurricane of 1944 (a Cat 4 and the 7th deadliest storm in US history) made landfall in Virginia and worked its way up the East Coast hitting Long Island and Rhode Island killing between 300-400 people. This disaster occurred four years into the mid 20th century's global warming period (see).
4. Hurricane Camille of 1968 (a Cat 5 and the 8th worst storm in US history) hit the Mississippi region killing 256  29 years into the 35 year mid-century global cooling period (see).
5. Hurricane Agnes of 1972 (the 11th worst storm in US history) hit Pennsylvania killing 122 people 3 years before the end of the mid-20th century global cooling period (see).
But there's more, much more. Below is a list of 26 devastating hurricanes - 20 of which occurred during the Little Ice Age (over a period of 300 years) - that hit the US mainland, the Caribbean region and Central America each killing at least 1000 people:

So what are we to conclude from the evidence of so many terribly destructive cyclones and hurricanes during little ice ages and periods of falling global temperatures? That hurricanes now are not stronger than in the past. And that those who differ saying that hurricanes Harvey and Irma are "unprecedented," that they are "what man-caused climate change looks like," and that much, much worse is coming if we don't wisen up (and spend trillions to transition to a green energy future) are speaking utter nonsense making fools of themselves and a mockery of science.

Extremely Intense Hurricanes: Revisiting Webster et al. (2005) after 10 Years: Journal of Climate: Vol 28, No 19 






Why is it that President Trump is ignoring the dire warnings coming from climate scientists, green politicians and save the Earth activists and journalists the world over linking devastating hurricanes Harvey and Irma to rising CO2 inducing fossil fuel consumption which hit an all time high in 2016? Is it because his economy boosting, pro-middle class, capitalist agenda to turn America into a fossil fuel hyperpower is recklessly making him deaf, dumb and blind to the evidence of science that CO2 levels now at 410 ppm is disruptingly and dangerously high? Is he simply stuck on the stupid idea that catastrophic anthropogenic climate change and global warming is a fake science hoax devised by the enemies of industrial capitalism? Those progressives who want to move the world to a centralized socialist economic and energy model of redistributing wealth from rich to poor countries? And to replace fossil fuels with green, clean, safer but more costly, less efficient and reliable renewables (see) ? Is that it?

Behold the Great Beast of the 6th Extinction!/sarc

Indeed, is Trump just simply an irresponsible, reckless, menacing anti-science freak let loose on the world stage contributing and leading the way to humanity's doom and extinction as some like mastermind cosmologist Stephen Hawking hysterically warn? I don't believe so for a second. I don't believe that in Trump's refusing to believe in the linkage between Harvey and Irma and human activity in the massive, growing, wealth creating use of fossil fuels (especially in poor developing third world states) he is ignoring the facts of climate science. I am certain, and the facts as you will see prove me right, that Trump sees the science, the real science: the raw empirical data gathered by meteorologists and weather historians on hurricane and cyclone activity going back over a century; and that he has solid, irrefutable proof that those who accuse him of being a dangerous, science denying cretin and ignoramus, and find or theorize a nexus between extreme weather events and anthropogenic (man-made) CO2 are either liars or fools.


What are the facts the President sees that makes him so confident that wealthy climate activists like Al Gore and Leonardo Di Caprio were innocent of influencing Harvey, Irma and other powerful storms with their polluting, fuel burning flights across the world? These are the facts straight and simple taken from scientists and weather historians:

Though a guilty Al Gore may think that he's partly responsible for Harvey and Irma, he is wrong.

Beginning in 1910 on a timescale of 107 years divided into two periods of 53 years (1910 to 1963 and 1964 to 2017) there was a significant increase (see chart above) in anthropogenic (man caused) CO2 emissions of 119* parts per million (ppm); and, at the same time, there was a dramatic decrease in devastating hurricane activity hitting the US (see chart below). Indeed, while 1910-1963 saw 40 ppm of man caused CO2 added to the Earth's minutely warming atmosphere there was a total of 12 Category 4-5 hurricanes making landfall on the US . And while 1964-2017 saw an increase 79 ppm of man caused CO2 there was a total of only 6 Category 4-5 hurricanes hitting this country. In other words, there was nearly a doubling or 100% increase of CO2 emissions in the second period over the first while Category 4-5 hurricane activity was cut by half or 100%. That is a huge, dramatic drop and shouldn't have happened according climate change or anthropogenic global warming science. 

*Scientists tell us that currently man is increasing the level of atmospheric CO2 by 2 ppm per year. But in the earlier days of the 20th century when so little of the world was industrialized our CO2 output could not have been more than 1/2 ppm per year.

It's all about system change to socialism, not climate change  (see and see).

Now as there are three other categories of hurricanes (1, 2 and 3) the drop that President Trump is seeing in the Cat 4s and 5s isn't limited to them. For during that same period of 107 years there was a total of 47 Category 3 hurricanes that hit the US: 27 during the first period and 20 during the second totaling a 25% reduction.  

Now when these 47 Cat 3 hurricanes are added to the total number of destructive storms it gives us 39 Cat 3, 4 and 5 hurricanes during the first 53 years when there was less atmospheric CO2 verses 26 of these hurricanes during the last 53 years when there was more CO2. That amounts to an overall 33% drop in the three worst types of hurricanes - pretty substantial.

But the pattern that the President sees for the Cat 3,4 and 5 hurricanes he also sees for the least damaging: Cat 1 and 2. Now starting with Cat 2, during the 107 year period there was a total of 43 of these storms; that breaks down to 28 during 1910 - 1963, and 15 during the last period. That's a huge drop of 57%.

And lastly, for the Cat 1 hurricanes - the most common, numerous and least destructive of all - the total number of these for the entire 107 years was 62. This breaks down to 37 during the first period, and 25 for the last period, showing a 33% drop. Not too shabby.

Now, of course, what is true for each of the five categories of hurricanes taken separately is true of them taken together in combination. For the total number of hurricanes (categories 1-5) for the entire 107 year period is 169; that breaks down to a 104 for the first 53 years and 65 for the second. In other words, in the period that we're in (where atmospheric CO2 is more abundant) there's been a 63% decline in overall hurricane activity over the previous period - a huge drop.

The above are the facts as are known to Donald Trump and his science advisers. The fact that despite growing fossil fuel powered industrialization over that last 107 years there has been a steady decline in hurricanes of all categories hitting the U.S.. Indeed, Trump sees that this decline is most significant in the two most destructive categories of hurricanes (4-5) which run contrary to predictions that these would exponentially increase over time. One needs to recall the failed predictions in the wake of Hurricane Katrina of a decade of horrific catastrophes pounding the U.S. and Florida when there was a record 11 year drought instead. Indeed, so far 17 years into the 21st century we have had uncharacteristically mild hurricane conditions.

So on the basis of historical and scientific evidence (and catastrophically failed predictions) President Trump does well to ignore the desperate, hysterical cries and name calling of apocalyptic, end of the world messianic lunatics to reverse course and build on the ignorant, growth killing, climate change agenda of his ignorant and misguided predecessor. Wisely Trump will continue to dismantle that agenda that needlessly cost us billions in jobs and growth as he rightly denies any trace of human footprints in Harvey and Irma, and rebuilds America's economy, infrastructure and energy sector.

Graph showing the number of cyclones per year since 1970

It appears that the continental US is not the only great land mass prone to cyclones and hurricanes that have shown a decline in this activity over the decades. This has also happened to Australia over the last 46 years. Indeed. the bar chart above shows that the total number of cyclones decreased to the mid-1980s and remained nearly stable since - which defies AGW predictions of increasing cyclonic activity.
However, the first decade of the 21st century showed a precipitous decline in severe cyclones over the previous decade dropping from 65 to 37 or 57%. And the first 7 years of our decade vs. the first 7 years of the last is running behind by 4 severe cyclones 30-26 - with 2016 being the first year in the last 47 showing no severe cyclones at all (see).
What is true for the decline of cyclonic activity for the US and Australia in particular is also true generally for the world at large. For researchers have found no worldwide increase in tropical cyclone frequency over the past several decades despite huge increases in greenhouse gas emissions (see and see) .










I'm not a reactionary neo-Confederate freaking fringe nut or feel any fondness whatsoever for the old Confederate South or for any of its relics and symbols. With the exception of Robert E. Lee who I respect (see below) I care nothing about its other leaders who I haven't studied and know little about. What I am, however, is a historical purist and opposed to destroying or removing any and all historical statues and monuments from public spaces. I don't care what the monument is or who it may offend, or who rallies around them for whatever cause good or bad; I want them all to stay where they are and that goes for Confederate monuments that are currently under attack by left-wing fanatics as part of a cultural, social and economic revolution to transform America into the United Socialist States - a centralized, totalitarian society with a command and control economy that is many times worse and more oppressive than was the Confederacy. In fact, I would rather be a black slave in the Confederate South then live in a one party socialist state like the Russians had under Lenin and Stalin, and the Germans under Hitler. But that's a subject for another day.  
Indeed, apart from the overarching socialist agenda of the radical left there are moral, historical and national reasons grounded in common sense to oppose their war of purgation against Confederate monuments; reasons, it appears, that are intuitively understood by the vast majority of Americans as the interesting PBS poll cited above clearly shows.
For when I or any normal American (with no more than a basic education in American history) sees a statue of Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson or Robert E. Lee  what quickly comes to mind is the Civil War, the reasons why it was fought and its great, noble, historic outcome, and lessons for posterity. These venerable, old, beautiful works of stone and metal evoke in normal Americans patriotic pride: positive, uplifting, ennobling thoughts, feelings and memories of this epic conflict - the most horrific war we ever fought; we recall that Union soldiers (young men outraged at southern treachery) sacrificed life and limb by the hundreds and thousands fighting bravely and victoriously against Davis, Jackson and Lee for a moral principle; we recall that good, justice and the Judeo-Christian tradition (the inspiration for the Abolition Movement) triumphed over slavery, treason, division and the perversion of religion; we recall that we were healed, united and made whole again, one nation under a good, just and merciful God, on course to become (by His will) the greatest nation in human history - a force for justice, peace and liberty like no other, that defeated enemies far worse than the Confederacy.
Indeed, when normal Americans see Confederate statues or even flags not only do they see the defeat of slavery and man's inhumanity to man, they also see a powerful warning to other potential traitors and enemies within: NEVER ATTEMPT SECESSION AGAIN. Indeed, Confederate monuments signify completely and compellingly that future treasonous Davises, Jacksons and Lees, who'd want some part of America to secede (like some Democrats today want California) will not be tolerated in the least; and whatever be the cost in lives and treasure they will meet with defeat and total disaster like the Rebel South.
This is what I, one of 62% of Americans (Republicans, Democrats and Independents), feel about Confederate statues, monuments and flags; and why we oppose destroying them or moving them from public squares because few, very few (a mere 27%) are deeply offended and driven into moral insanity by them. 
Indeed, when a sick, abnormal, racially obsessed leftist (who hates America and its industrial-capitalist system to begin with) sees the same lifeless Confederate relics we normal citizens see they (losing their minds) feel repulsion, rage and annihilating hate as if their existence were a Nazi-like crime; and that the Confederacy and heritage of slavery are still alive staining our country, national honor and poisoning our minds.
When Liberalism is in trouble it's time to tear down statues.
Indeed, just as these loons believe in a living, breathing Constitution (a lifeless piece of paper), and a Lady Liberty that weeps for illegal immigrants (another senseless statue), so do they imbue the images of Davis, Jackson and Lee with a terrible life as if it were the 1860s and they were Union soldiers fighting Johnny Reb to the death.  It's a morality play they replay over and over again in their heads to make them feel they're on a lofty moral plane and mission of redemption to save America from racism; to bring to an end the unfinished Civil War and Jim Crow once and for all; for as long as Confederate statues are in public places, and buildings, bridges and highways bear the names of rebel leaders, the evil Confederacy, for them, still lives oppressing blacks and robbing them of inner peace and dignity. For them in a sense the Emancipation Proclamation and Appomattox haven't happened yet. Indeed, until the Confederacy is erased, wiped out, and buried it's as if Lee hasn't surrendered to Grant but is still fighting to save the Confederacy from "Union tyranny." That's how crazy these leftists are.
Reconstruction by akartes
Indeed, these anti-monument loons react anachronistically to these relics with the anger, moral outrage and intolerance of the Radical Republicans of yore: this was a large and influential pitiless faction within the post-war Republican Party that rejected Lincoln's clemency (God's mercy) for the South as too soft, weak and lenient - not doing the work of justice and retribution. Unmoved by the South's economic and social devastation caused by the war the Radicals wanted to worsen it and passed legislation (that was vetoed) requiring the confiscation of former-Confederate property and lands as reparations for former slaves. If these extremists weren't stopped they would have created terrible bitterness, humiliation and resentment in the South making reconciliation and peace impossible. Indeed, just as a second world war followed the first because of France's and England's humiliation of Germany at Versailles, so if the Radical Republicans had their way in punishing the South it could have caused a second Civil War more destructive than the first - as all trust would have been lost. 
Indeed, this is how radical, implacable and unforgiving these anti-monument wingnuts are; if they're not stopped in their tracks they'll carry their mindless jihad against our racist and slave past all the way back to the 18th century targeting statues of Washington, Jefferson and Patrick Henry. For them the sin of slavery is ineradicable that no degree of cleansing, penance and remorse can appease. Even reparations wouldn't work as trillions spent on welfare prove.
Indeed, assurances from these radical fools that they have no grievance with the slave-owning Founders because unlike the Confederates they weren't traitors, is bullcrap. For the reason for their treason was slavery - to keep the evil system alive for all time to come. In other words, NO SLAVERY NO CONFEDERACY, it's that simple. Indeed, for them Washington, Jefferson and the slave-owning Founders were guilty men - setting the stage for the rebellion of the Confederate States - the equals of Davis, Jackson and Lee in racial injustice and moral depravity. And when this PC crusade against the South is won and Confederate statues and relics are purged from the public sphere, the slave-owning Founders (followed by every slave-owning President) will be next; they'll be subject to the same campaign of demonization and delegitimization -  until their monuments are effaced, disgraced and erased. That is a certainty.
But I digress. The grievance of treason is not a good reason for the destruction and removal of Confederate statues. For the crime of treason to keep slavery in place shortened its existence by many decades. For if the Southern States had trusted Lincoln when he promised not to interfere with slavery if they stayed in the Union the system would have endured for many generations -  surviving, possibly, into the early 20th century.
In short, as Jefferson said, "God brings good out of the evil men do;" and from the evil of Confederate treason sprung the greater good of advancing the cause of justice and liberty - of shortening by 40 years the inevitable demise of slavery. And the statues of Davis, Jackson, Lee and other Confederate chiefs are symbolic of this treason that worked out for the best as if by the Hand of Almighty Providence.
In the final analysis, Confederate statues, relics and flags, symbols of oppression and treason crushed and defeated, are as much monuments to God and His plan for this nation as they are to Lincoln and the Union and the sacrifices they made to end an evil institution - and make America a More Perfect Democratic Union.
This is the magnificent Robert E. Lee memorial that President Roosevelt in June 1936 traveled 1300 miles to dedicate, saying:
Franklin D. Roosevelt
72 - Remarks at the Unveiling of the Robert E. Lee Memorial Statue, Dallas, Texas.
June 12, 1936
"I am very happy to take part in this unveiling of the statue of General Robert E. Lee. All over the United States we recognize him as a great leader of men, as a great general. But, also, all over the United States I believe that we recognize him as something much more important than that. We recognize Robert E. Lee as one of our greatest American Christians and one of our greatest American gentlemen."

In other words, as far as FDR was concerned, Robert E. Lee was his equal as a Christian, gentleman and human being. That is to say, he was an exemplary American.

And one of FDR's greatest generals, who was leading the war against the Nazis in World War II, a man who became President, held Lee in the same high esteem. His name was Dwight Eisenhower who as President had a picture of Lee (one of four great Americans) in the Oval Office. The following is a letter from an outraged citizen criticizing Ike for the picture and demanding and explanation why he esteems Lee so highly (see):  

August 1, 1960
Mr. Dwight D. Eisenhower
White House
Washington, D.C. 

Dear Mr. President: 


At the Republication Convention I heard you mention that you have the pictures of four (4) great Americans in your office, and that included in these is a picture of Robert E. Lee. 


I do not understand how any American can include Robert E. Lee as a person to be emulated, and why the President of the United States of America should do so is certainly beyond me. 


The most outstanding thing that Robert E. Lee did, was to devote his best efforts to the destruction of the United States Government, and I am sure that you do not say that a person who tries to destroy our Government is worthy of being held as one of our heroes. 

Will you please tell me just why you hold him in such high esteem? 


Sincerely yours,

Leon W. Scott   


Of the tens and thousands of letters Ike must have received from citizens that went unread this one in particular found its way to his desk. And he felt that defending himself and Robert E. Lee was of such importance that he took the time out to respond writing this:


August 9, 1960 

Dear Dr. Scott: 


Respecting your August 1 inquiry calling attention to my often expressed admiration for General Robert E. Lee, I would say, first, that we need to understand that at the time of the War between the States the issue of secession had remained unresolved for more than 70 years. Men of probity, character, public standing and unquestioned loyalty, both North and South, had disagreed over this issue as a matter of principle from the day our Constitution was adopted. 


General Robert E. Lee was, in my estimation, one of the supremely gifted men produced by our Nation. He believed unswervingly in the Constitutional validity of his cause which until 1865 was still an arguable question in America; he was a poised and inspiring leader, true to the high trust reposed in him by millions of his fellow citizens; he was thoughtful yet demanding of his officers and men, forbearing with captured enemies but ingenious, unrelenting and personally courageous in battle, and never disheartened by a reverse or obstacle. Through all his many trials, he remained selfless almost to a fault and unfailing in his faith in God. Taken altogether, he was noble as a leader and as a man, and unsullied as I read the pages of our history. 


From deep conviction, I simply say this: a nation of men of Lee’s calibre would be unconquerable in spirit and soul. Indeed, to the degree that present-day American youth will strive to emulate his rare qualities, including his devotion to this land as revealed in his painstaking efforts to help heal the Nation’s wounds once the bitter struggle was over, we, in our own time of danger in a divided world, will be strengthened and our love of freedom sustained. 


Such are the reasons that I proudly display the picture of this great American on my office wall. 



Dwight D. Eisenhower 


 Now because of Ike's high regard for Lee as a military leader and human being would anyone dare accuse him of racism, white supremacism, neo-Confederatism or insensitivity to blacks? Only a fool would do that. For this is the same Dwight Eisenhower that championed and signed into law two civil rights bills in 1957 and again in 1960 protecting the voting and civil rights of blacks. These were the first two pieces of civil rights legislation aimed at black Americans since 1875 five years after Lee died (see and see).  
 Now I like President Eisenhower and FDR honor and esteem Robert E. Lee above all else for surrendering to Grant and ending the war and Confederacy at Appomattox - when he could have escaped into the Appaliacian Mountains where he was greatly loved rebuilt his army and continued the war for perhaps another year. With good reason Grant let Lee keep his sword; for his unnecessary surrender saved tens and thousands of lives.   
Morover, Lee renounced the Confederacy and the institution of slavery as unGodly, unjust and evil. And after the war he worked tirelessly to reintegrate the South into the Union; this makes his statues and monuments symbols of anti-Confederatism and reconcilation. Indeed, if Lee were alive today he'd denounce in the strongest terms neo-Confederates, neo-Nazis and the KKK. Indeed, how can a man who died an anti-Confederate working to unify the nation be a symbol of  divisive, treasonous, Confederate scum? It's prejudice, slander, revisionism and unreasoning hate to say that Lee's statues represent the very evils he renounced and put behind him when he surrendered at Appomattox. 
FDR and Ike were absolutely  right: Lee is to be honored and esteemed as a very good, great, exemplary soldier, leader, American and human being.


Most people don't know that right after the second presidential debate, where "creepy," cruel, sexist, bully Donald Trump was frighteningly "stalking" poor, sick, hyper low energy ILLary on the stage (and "breathing down her neck") she was so shaken up and worn out by the ordeal that afterwards she needed the support of her husband and hand rails to hold her up as she was walking to her van.  

This easily unnerved weakling wanted to be President?

BS. And in the actually demonstrably factual world, Drumpf needed a gold cart to move around while every other world leader walked... talk about low stamina.




And in the "actually demonstrably factual world" from early August to October 23rd* the indefatigable Donald Trump did a total of 83 major rallies (sometimes 4 a day); while sick, weak, hyper low energy ILLery (avoiding exerting herself too much) did a meager 34 rallies (see).


I can't recall where I read this but from Oct. 23rd to Nov. 7th Trump put the pedal to the medal and did another 37 rallies; whereas Hillary did another 16. Trump's out campaigning Hillary (not a Comey effect, or Russian-Wiki effect or racism or breathing down Hillary's neck) was key to his winning the election - especially in the rustbelt states where it counted most.


She was sniffing Donnie the incoherent cokehead.

Was she "sniffing Donnie" when she had a seizure on 9/11 and nearly collapsed? Or was she overcome by the extreme, fatiguing 77 degree heat? LOL!!!






And so it is. Which means there were other Harveys centuries ago before the massive use of beneficial fossil fuels powered and enriched the world; and before there were anti-capitalist-industrial age nuts thinking we were better off before the invention of the combustion engine warning:



If only we had listened to the Unabomber and Al Gore Harvey might not have happened. LOL!!!


on the economy (see) the Orange Menace will have two terms and devastate the Illiberal Media, Democrap Party, world saving climate control and the little that's left of Obama's legacy of ashes and dust. Pray for two more Harveys to hit the Houston area and completely wipe it out killing tens and thousands while driving gas prices into the stratosphere. It's the only way to stop the coming "Trickle Down" ecomomic boom that will supercharge the hurting, declining, forgotten middle class and make Trump a great president again./sarc

ANSWER: Twice that of Republican shutdowns.
If Chuckie, the class warfare clown, were a Democrat leader in the 1960s would he have opposed this rich President's tax cuts for the rich-which made him and his family (and every other 1%er)  wealthier?
BTW, the Kennedy tax cuts sent the economy soaring (preventing a sixth post-war recession) reaching GDP levels of 5%+; and made it impossible for Republicans to take back the White House in 1964 when LBJ crushed Barry Goldwater in a landslide - like Reagan would do to Mondale twenty years later from the economic impact of his  "voodoo economics" tax cuts.

That single-payer, government-run, universal healthcare failed in radical left coast California (following the debacles in Vermont and Colorado) is old news now. But what isn't generally known is that it was the seventh time in 25 years that it failed in that state; and that this latest effort wasn't serious, but, as you will see, a sham by lying, hypocritical Democrat politicians to placate frustrated progressives that progress after so many years was finally being made in the journey toward healthcare heaven. A brief history of single-payer in the Golden State is instructive of just how false the journey has been and continues to be; and that single-payer has no future there or anywhere else in our country. 
 It all began in 1993 when Nick Petris, an obscure state Senator, introduced a single-payer bill in the legislature - it was ignored and got nowhere. Then two years later in 1994 a modified single-payer universal coverage plan passed both houses, but was vetoed by Governor Pete Wilson because of its costs. Then the following year Proposition 186, a ballot initiative for single-payer, was rejected by voters 73% to 27% (see and see). That was when Californians were still somewhat sane; for such a ballot would be the reverse today.
Then in 1998 bill SB 2123 calling for single-payer was introduced to the Senate where it led to a resolution calling for a study on its financial implications; it quietly died without explanation - but most likely because it was found to be financially unfeasible. Then five years later in 2003 (when Democrat Gray Davis was governor) single-payer reared its head for a fourth time in bill SB 921; after being approved by the Senate 921 like 2123 went down the road for financial analysis to see if it was viable. But after going through a refinement process of six amendments the state Assembly refused to vote on it, and like 2123 it died - sparing governor Davis from vetoing it (see).
But hope springs eternal. In 2005 state Senator Sheila Kuehl introduced bill SB 840 for single-payer which was approved by the Democrat led Assembly and Senate, but vetoed by then Republican Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. Why? Because the Governator (as he was called) didn't want a bankrupted California to be his legacy. As he said, "Such a program would cost the state billions and lead to significant new taxes on individuals and businesses, without solving the critical issue of affordability [for health insurance]."  In other words, SB 840 would be ruinous for state finances and the economy; higher across the board individual taxes means less money for consumers to spend on goods and services and the things they care about; and higher corporate taxes means either driving up prices (raising the cost of living), or driving businesses out of the state (seesee and see) greatly adding to the jobless rate. In short, No governor (Republican or Democrat) in their right mind would have signed such a bill.
 But undaunted Senator Kuehl in 2007 reintroduced SB 840 to the legislature where it easily passed again, but only to be vetoed again by Schwarzenegger* for the same reasons cited above. Then in 2009 with Kuehl no longer in the Senate her colleague Senator Mark Leno took up the single-payer cause and reintroduced SB 840 as SB 810  (same bill different number). It passed the Senate but died in the Assembly where it was never put up for a full vote. What a joke.
*Schwarzenegger was falsely accused by progressives of killing the "perfectly fine bill that was going to save Californians billions" because he was "in the pocket of the drug, insurance and healthcare companies." 
Now as it turned out SB 840/810 was such a fiscally and economically irresponsible piece of legislation that when pro-single-payer progressive Jerry Brown succeeded Repub Schwarzenegger   the Democrats made no attempt at resurrecting it a third time and pass it again for Brown's signature. Why? Because it would have suffered the same fate of either being vetoed (this time by Brown and hurting him politically with his progressive base) or dying in the Assembly again. And, as we'll see below, this inaction on 840 was a sign it wasn't a serious piece of single payer legislation to overhaul California's healthcare system; but a partisan political football to appease the single payer crowd and hurt Governor Schwarzenegger with them. 
And now after 25 years of failure with California's voters, lawmakers and governors killing single-payer time after time (because of costs requiring huge unpopular tax hikes and greater spending, borrowing and deficits by the state) a new single-payer bill SB 562 was introduced and passed by the Assembly in June. But this bill (the most insane and reckless of all for its covering illegal aliens) wasn't even put to a vote by the Senate. Indeed, with an unfinanceable start up price tag of $404 billion (more than twice the state budget), $200 billion in annual costs and no mechanism to control costs state Senators wouldn't go near it, or dare pass it (as they did 840 twice under Schwarzenegger) and put Gov. Brown in the embarrassing and politically damaging spot of having to veto it - which he certainly would have done.
Progressive Governor Jerry Brown in Washington protesting the repeal and replacement of Obamacare while rejecting single payer government run healthcare as the solution.
Indeed, in March Governor Brown signaled that he'd veto any single-payer bill that landed on his desk when he asked reporters in a give and take: “Where do you get the extra money [to pay for single-payer]?... This is the whole question. I don’t even get.... how do you do that...You take a problem [millions with poor or no health insurance] and say I'm going to solve it by something [single-payer] that's even a bigger problem (a $404 billion problem see and see)?” Indeed, what Brown said in rejecting single payer as a solution was more or less Schwarzenegger all over again:
Indeed, don't be deceived. SB 562 like SB 840 wasn't serious legislation to fix California's healthcare and coverage problems. If it was, to say the least, it would never have included free insurance for illegal aliens; for such a law would turn California into a massive medical magnet for sick people from Mexico and Latin America who'd come streaming across the border to get free care - and bankrupt the state ten times over. Indeed, like SB 840 562 was an empty shell with no substantive provisions; what it was, was political theater stating ideological principles* designed to appease not only single-payer activists, special interests and mooching free stuff losers, but the open borders crowd who believe in the right of any foreigner to live in this country and receive the benefits of full citizenship.
*After California State Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon shelved SB 562 he gave the following interesting and revealing explanation: "SB 562 didn’t make any sense," he said. "It just didn’t seem like public policy as much as it seemed a STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLES (see).”
That's exactly right; SB 562 wasn't a serious bill aimed at single payer healthcare reform; it was an ideological statement of progressive principles to placate (soothe the feelings of) angry leftists pissed that after so long progress wasn't being made toward single payer becoming reality.
SB 562 might be good politics for deceiving gullible west coast    leftists who want to believe that state Dems are making progress toward achieving single-payer heaven; but it fails as serious healthcare legislation. Truth is if single-payer were affordable and practical Brown would have signed SB 840 when he took office in 2011; and California today would be the nation's first single-payer state leading the way toward nationalization. But like other progressive politicians on single-payer Brown only talks the talk when running for election; but is unable to make it a reality when in office because of prohibitive fiscal and economy wrecking costs. In short, SB 562 isn't "dead for this year" as the LA Times headline says. IT'S DEAD, PERIOD!
Though single-payer in California (like in Vermont) is financially and economically unfeasible and dangerous, crazy radical socialist crackpot Bernie Sanders (I-VT) nevertheless demanded that Gov. Brown throw caution to the wind and support 562 come what may. Keep in mind that this is the same Bernie Sanders who wants "Medicare for All" when "Medicare for Some (the elderly)" has $27 trillion in unfunded liabilities, and is going broke (see and see). 
Now If Sanders had his way in Vermont with budget busting, economy wrecking, single-payer Green Mountain Care (costing more than the state budget) he would have impacted the state with the destructive force of a category seven hurricane (see). That's how dangerous this unreasoning fanatic would be if he was Vermont's governor. Imagine him as President and the national catastrophe he'd cause.


for voting Trump and being a red Republican state, as Professor Storey said; or it isn't God's wrath specifically punishing Houston for the sin of having a lesbian mayor, as some fundamentalists believe, what then? Is it possible, could it be that Harvey is an ominous sign from the Great Earth Goddess Gaia? A warning to radical right-wing denier Donald Trump that he's dead wrong about global warming and climate change being an agenda driven, pseudo-scientific, anti-capitalist hoax? That they are very, very real and negatively impacting the planet and biosphere? That the massive, growing, exploding use of fossil fuels by stupid, self-destructive, gas guzzling industrial man is bringing us to the brink of planetary destruction - as Al Gore and many scientists warn? That the increase in man-caused atmospheric CO2 is dooming us to the "Sixth Extinction"? To a holocaust like no other that's ravaged the Earth where mankind and all living things will be no more? 
In short, is Harvey Gaia's punishment on Texas for being the epicenter of the US oil industry producing over 1 billion barrels of crude per year - making it the 6th largest oil producer in the world?
Black-and-white photograph of an oil derrick with a gusher of oil shooting from the top
And has Gaia singled out Houston specifically for karmic retribution not because of its lesbian mayor, but for reasons related to dirty, foul, polluting fossil fuels that's poisoning the air? Is Houston suffering from the worst rainfall and flooding in our history because it was there in 1901 that the great Texas oil boom began (that spread across the country and globe)? That it is a city built on obscene dirty energy profits and oil baron greed? And that since then this city of sin has monstrously grown into the world capital of the oil and gas industry (see)? That it's home to over 5000 energy businesses making billions? That located there are Phillips, Conoco, Marathon and Citgo? That Exxon has most of its 73,000 employees there (Houston's largest employer)? Indeed, if Gaia were to be angry with any city on earth it would be Houston, Texas, no?
It should be perfectly clear to you that the unprecedented disaster fallen on Houston is karmically linked to President Trump's June 1st withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord; and his plans for turning America into a fossil fuel HYPERPOWER - out producing every other nation twice over. What could be more offensive to Gaia than the man in the White House?
If Donald Trump doesn't heed Gaia's warning and let it enlighten him, if he doesn't reverse his policies and turn America into the epicenter of solar, wind and hydropower, he'll be responsible for polluting the sky with dangerous levels of heat trapping Carbon Dioxide - pushing us beyond the tipping point of no return into Climate Armageddon. If Trump, in short, doesn't awaken to the terrible harm he's doing he will infamously go down in history as the 
worse than Mohammed, Attila, Hitler, Stalin and mass murdering Mao combined.



For those following the Russiagate witch hunt story very few are aware that Paul Manafort, Donald Trump's former campaign manager, and one time advisor to ousted pro-Russian Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukowych, has been under criminal and counter-intelligence investigation by multiple federal agencies (FBI, CIA, NSA, DNI, DOJ* and now Bob Mueller) since 2014 (see). And to date no investigator of any agency (including two separate Senate investigations*) has found so much as a smidgen of illegality or criminality in any of Manafort's political, financial and real estate dealings. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

  • *FISA Court wiretaps (see).

**Judiciary and Intelligence committies.


And it appears that despite rumors and reports that Mueller and his "dream team" of 16 all-star cracker jack lawyers are zeroing in on Manafort for the kill that in reality they are no closer to hanging him than others have  been over the last three years. Indeed, contrary to what we are hearing from the Trump derangement press the recent, pre-dawn "extraordinarily invasive," "intimidating" FBI raid on Manafort's Alexandria home (where a trove of documents and records were reportedly seized) proved, it seems, to have been a complete bust - another dead-end yielding nothing.


I say this for the following reasons: According to the Washington Post on July 25th, less than one full day before the raid, Robert Mueller learned that Manafort had been subpoenaed to appear on the 26th before the Senate Judiciary Committee in an open session. The reason for the subpoena was Manafort's apparent lack of cooperation in voluntarily producing certain records and documents that the committee requested for its investigation. What were these documents? Whatever seems to be pertinent to the Russiagate witch hunt, of course.

Manafort with Putin and Ukrainian President Yanukovych.

Indeed, since last March, according to the Business Insider (see), the committee has been examining Manafort's financial and political history with Russian oligarchs, especially as a paid advisor (which made him millions) to the "Party of Regions" in the Ukraine - this was the pro-Russian political party that elected Manafort's client Viktor Yanukowych president in 2010.  Apparently, it was docs related to this part of the probe that Manafort at first was seemed reluctant to produce and underlie the subpoena.

Now on July 25th (that very same day) shortly after the Senate issued its subpoena two things happened: (1) Manafort agreed to produce the documents causing the Senate committee to immediately withdraw the subpoena; and (2) Mueller, it appears (and this is crucially important), took the Senate subpoena to a federal judge and convinced him to issue a warrant to search Manafort's Alexandria home. In other words, the Senate subpoena was the basis for the search warrant and triggered it. 

Indeed, the Senate subpoena for Russiagate related documents and the court warrant for the raid being issued within hours of each other are inextricably linked; for it was a load of docs that the FBI reportedly took from Manaford's home. As the Washington Post reported:

"The search warrant indicates that investigators may have argued to a federal judge that they had reason to think Manafort could not be TRUSTED to turn over all records in response to a grand jury subpoena ." 

 In other words, because the Senate briefly couldn't trust Manafort to produce certain documents (the reason for the subpoena) neither could Mueller trust him; and apparently with the newly issued subpoena in hand Mueller convinced the federal judge that his distrust was warranted; that it was possible Manafort was in possession of incriminating evidence of financial wrongdoing that he might try to conceal, destroy or alter; and that an immediate invasive search of his home was necessary to prevent that from happening. Persuaded by Muller that immediate and urgent action was needed the judge issued the warrant; and within hours the FBI raided Manafort's home carting away boxes of records, docs, computers and what not.

Indeed, given the coincidence on July 25th of the search warrant issued just hours after the Senate subpoena my theory linking the docs requested by the Senate with what was reportedly seized in the raid looks quite valid. Also valid is my theory that the raid proved a complete failure and bust. For if not then why leak the raid to the press two weeks later? If Team Mueller had found a smoking gun leaking the raid makes no sense unless they had nothing better to leak and hurt Manafort (and Trump) with.  

Indeed, if after two weeks of processing the seized records and docs Mueller's team found something damning for a grand jury indictment then that's what they would have leaked - that an indictment was imminent. Leaking info about the pre-dawn raid is a sign of frustration with the Manafort investigation; that it is going no better for Mueller then it went for Comey and the FBI after ten months; or for the CIA, NSA and DNI for three years; or for Senate committee investigators since March when they started their probe.

In other words, after 13 months and millions spent the Russiagate investigation is still thick black plumes of smoke desperately searching for a fire; after 13 months the bloodthirsty, destroy Trump witch hunt still has no one to hang, crucify or burn.  

UPDATE  (9/19/17)


The NY Times reports that Special Council Robert  Mueller's team advised Paul Manafort that they plan to indict him. For what? The Times doesn't say. Manafort is allegedly under investigation for possible violations of tax laws  and failure to abide by disclosure requirements relating to his lobbying work for Kremlin-aligned governments in eastern Europe. In other words, these possible indictments have zero to do with Russiagate: of criminal collusion of Team Trump with Russia to tilt the election in President Trump's favor.

However, assuming that this is true and an indictment unrelated to Russiagate is coming down for Manafort he doesn't seem the least bit troubled by it. For if he were, if he feared a conviction and jail time, he would likely have done an Eric Snowden by now fleeing to Russia the guest of Vladimir Putin, living with Yanukovych safely beyond the reach of US law.  

As I've been predicting all along at worst Russiagate will be Plamegate 2 with Mueller (who was FBI Chief during the Plamegate investigation) grabbing a Scooter Libby for perjury and obstruction but finding nothing on the President. Could Manafort be Mueller's Libby? If that should happen it will turn this probe into one big wasteful fiasco just like Plamegate. 

UPDATE (9/25/17)


Roger Stone, a longtime ally and informal campaign adviser to President Donald Trump, said Tuesday that he expects former campaign manager Paul Manafort to be indicted.

"His attorneys told my attorneys he expects to be indicted,” Stone told reporters after a closed-door meeting with the House Intelligence Committee, which is probing Russian meddling in the U.S. election. Stone added that he didn’t know what charges Manafort might be facing and that he hasn’t been contacted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team.

If Manafort was expecting a grand jury indictment on a serious charge where they'd likely be a conviction and jail time he probably (as I said above) would likely be in Russia right now Putin's guest like Edward Snowden beyond the reach of US law.







Trump condemns 'hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides' in Charlottesville - CNNPolitics

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides. It has been going on for a long time in our country -- not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama. It has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America."
What do the vile, violent neo-Nazi street thugs at Charlottesville have in common with the vile, violent Black Lives Matter and Antifa  thugs on the other side? They are anti-American, democracy hating government supremacists - the enemies of our divided, pluralistic, rule of law, bill of rights, free market constitutional republic. That is to say, they believe in the political, intellectual and moral primacy of the STATE over the economy and stupid, dumb, unenlightened human society; indeed, they believe with ideological certainty that the one should control and dominate the other for its own good, security, well-being, progress and peace. In other words, neo-Nazis, BLM and Antifa are the enemies of our free, liberal, open way of life which gives primacy to the individual and economic freedom over human government (the classical liberalism of John Locke, Abe Lincoln and the Founders). And there are two words that accurately and justly describe these violent, lawless, subversive enemies within:
Indeed, just as Nazism (National Socialism) in its pure Hitlerian Germanic form was socialism (a totalitarian collectivist state) for the German people (minus Jews), so is neo-Nazism totalitarian socialism for all white people (minus Jews). And similarly, what neo-Nazi white supremacists want for whites BLM black supremacists want for blacks: a totalitarian collectivist state and social order favoring economically and socially blacks over all other races and peoples; a state where blacks are given $trillions in reparation (stolen wealth from whites) for slavery and Jim Crow (see and see). In short, they believe OPPRESS OR BE OPPRESSED: as long as blacks aren't the controlling oppressors directing society they are the oppressed and at a permanent social and economic disadvantage.
BLM fanatics, in fact, are so extreme in their racist hatred of whites  that they believe in collective racial guilt: that the white race is the epitome of evil and racial injustice; that every white person is born with an ineradicable supremacist gene, and that all whites collectively (even newly arrived white immigrants from Europe) are  guilty as sin of all past crimes (before and after the Civil War) done to blacks; and they too must pay for reparations just like every other white American. That is how sick and twisted these people are. And there is no reasoning with them.
Hitler and Lenin: two totalitarian socialist autocrats.
Antifa leftists are also totalitarian socialists; but unlike neo-Nazi white supremacist and BLM black supremacists Antifa are EGALITARIANS: they are pure, Soviet-type Marxist-Leninists  and believe in a totalitarian, command and control social order for the proletariat (working class) regardless of race, ethnicity or gender. They believe in a grandiose, cradle to grave, all caring, all providing nanny state-the unreachable, unachievable utopian ideal that exhausted and bankrupted the old Soviet Union, destroyed the economies of Greece and Venezuela (and almost Sweden in the 1990s), and keeps the peoples of Cuba and North Korea shackled in poverty - slaves of the state (see).
In other words, the violence that we saw in Charlottesville two weeks ago (which was on many [both] sides," as President Trump rightly said) was between SOCIALIST FILTH and SOCIALIST SCUM. Three different faces of the same evil principle:
Communists and Nazis battling in 1932 Berlin.
Indeed, just as Lenin's Bolshevik socialists violently clashed with other socialists in the streets of Moscow and St. Petersburg, and Hitler's National Socialists violently clashed with pro-Stalin Communist socialists in Berlin, Munich and elsewhere, so in Charlottesville we saw the spectacle of violent, bloodthirsty leftist gangs (socialist Crips and Bloods) battling each other - as if it were a turf war.
The truth is this: these America sucks freedom hating socialists use American history to further their agenda and cause of gaining power to destroy our democracy. Just as Lenin used the evils of Russian Czarist history to destroy the Democratic provisional Kerensky government, so did Hitler use the glories of German history to gain power and destroy the Weimar Republic. And it's no different with the neo-Nazis defending American historical monuments, or BLM and Antifa wanting them destroyed.
All these anti-American groups deserve I believe a horrible fate. They should be rounded up, put in a large arena (like the LA Coliseum) and given shields, swords, knives and clubs so (like gladiators in mortal combat) they can slaughter and beat each other to death. Better that they destroy each other than they continue killing and injuring innocent Jews, blacks, whites, Republicans and cops - and burn down towns, cities, businesses and shops.







       President Trump's Afghan War Doctrine for winning this protracted 16 year war can be summarized as follows: It is George Bush's "fighting the enemy over there so we don't have to fight them here" minus nation building absent Barack Obama's complete stupidity in announcing timetables for withdrawal, and his insane, lethal, restrictive rules of engagement that depressed morale and got U.S. soldiers killed. Add to this the long overdue pressuring of Pakistan (through economic leverage and stronger defense ties with India) into wiping out its safe zones for terrorists, and that's the Trump Doctrine in a nutshell.


However, in the short run the signs don't look auspicious for the war. Yesterday, coinciding with the President's tough, eloquent, sensible speech, the USS John S. McCain (a destroyer named after the father and grandfather of Afghan War hawk Senator McCain) collided with an oil tanker (see) in the China Sea causing ten sailors to go missing and injuring five - not a good sign. Also ominous was the tanker's destination: South Korea (more trouble from the North?).

President Trump looking straight into the solar eclipse hours before his speech where he fearlessly looked at Afghanistan without illusions.

And later that day a rare total solar eclipse crossed the United States. Indeed, the Moon, symbolic of Islam, blotted out the Sun - another bad sign. But the eclipse being temporary perhaps signified a brief, tragic period of darkness and much loss of life for US forces on the battlefield (the USS McCain incident); or perhaps it's a warning of jihadi terrorist strikes on the homeland (across the country) - as in Barcelona five days ago. 

It is interesting to note that the last time a total solar eclipse crossed the US from the Pacific to the Atlantic coast was on June 8, 1918. That was when our nation was in its 14th month fighting the Axis Powers in World War I. Five months later the war would end in victory. Will 2018 see an end to the Afghan War with the Taliban being driven to the bargaining table after a fierce and bloody conflict?

On the bright side Trump is in the 7th month of his presidency (an auspicious number for him, see); and yesterday was his 214th day in office (see); cut 214 in half and we get the number 107 - giving us the month "10" and day "07"  in 2001 when President Bush begin the Afghan War (10-07-2001). It also gives us the month and day when Vladimir Putin was born (10-07-1952). The "coincidence" of Putin's 49th birthday with the start of the Afghan War is interesting in that Russia apparently has joined with Iran in trying to undermine our efforts in fighting the Taliban (see). But they will fail. For Trump is bigger and has more audacity than Putin and Khamenei combined.                                                                                                                                                                       


As you can see the President has his work cut out for him in Afghanistan. But he's equal to it, has no illusions and will prevail; and he'll go down in history as one of the greats. When is the next total solar eclipse to cross our country? April 2024 astronomers say - an election year when Trump will be in the last year of his successful presidency having totally eclipsed and collapsed the effort of his enemies to destroy him.  






The wheels are coming off the Trump Presidency!

The emperor has no clothes!

It's over!

Donald Trump won the Presidency with four flat tires and completely naked having been derailed and stripped of his clothes by the Gropergate Scandal: when the Access Hollywood Tape surfaced where he said demeaning things about women; then ten women accused him of groping and sexually assaulting them. With allies denouncing Trump as unfit for the exalted office he sort and distancing themselves from him it was said that his candidacy was over and he was certain to lose the election. Some even suggested for the sake of the party he step down as its nominee and let Mike Pence take over the campaign.

But winners never quit. Doubling down and exerting himself to a greater degree - doing three, four, sometimes five rallies in a single day-no wheels nor clothes Donald Trump audaciously charged ahead and passed through the storm to win the presidency astounding the world. And you will see him doing this again. Aided by Providence and the sheer force of his indomitable will we'll see this American Hercules defy the laws of political gravity all over again, and go on to win a second term to strengthen the America he made great again. 








He's either one or the other.
He can't be both.
Hitler killed six million Jews in the ovens of Auschwitz and in other death camps; and made plans with the anti-Zionist Palestinian terrorist leader Amin Husseini (still revered by Palestinians) to invade Palestine, drive out the British and exterminate every Palestinian Jew like he did in Germany. And all neo-Nazis (from David Duke on down) love and revere Hitler both for the great number of "evil" Jews that he killed, and for his unfulfilled plan to ethnlcally cleanse Palestine of them - which they pray that Hamas, Abbas and Hezbollah will eventually do.
 Hitler conferring with his Arab "henchman" Haj Amin al-Husseini  the founder of the Arab, anti-Zionist, anti-British terrorist revolt to rid Palestine of Brits and Jews.
Now there is no such thing as a "Nazi sympathizer" who is pro-Zionist and a Judeophile: i.e., who loves the Jewish people and believes that Israel is legally and morally their national homeland. And as you will see from the following defense such a Judeophile is Donald J. Trump.
I begin my defense of Trump by saying in the strongest terms that he loves the Jewishness of his Orthodox Jewish daughter Ivanka (the pride and joy of his life); loves the Jewishness of his Orthodox Jewish son-in-law Jared (a successful real estate developer and grandson of Holocaust survivors*); and of course he loves the Jewishness of his Orthodox Jewish grand children (who he wants to grow up as good Jews in the image of their parents who are a credit to their faith). Donald Trump also loves the Jewishness of such radio personalities as Michael Savage, Mark Levin and Dennis Prager; and though he doesn't know me (or maybe he does) he loves my Jewishness as well. But above loving the Jewishness of family members, popular talk show hosts and an obscure blogger Trump loves the Jewishness of the Jewish State of Israel and its great Zionist leader Bibi Netanyahu - a personal friend.
*Would Jared Kushner, the grandson of Holocaust survivors who had relatives perish in death camps, marry into a family headed by a neo-Nazi white supremacist with an annihilating hatred for Jews? Indeed, if Trump were a Jew hating neo-Nazi would he have allowed his daughter to marry a very Jewish Orthodox Jew who hates Nazis? NO WAY!
In other words, the "J" in Donald J. Trump stands for "JEW." In fact, he is perhaps the closest thing we've ever had to a Jewish President.
So why do Jew hating neo-Nazis like David Duke praise President Trump and say they ardently support him as if he's  one of them when to their mind he's a "filthy Jew loving Zionist" an enemy of the cause? The worst of the worst deserving a thousand deaths for helping to advance the Jewish conspiracy to achieve world domination? Answer: for the media attention to spotlight and grow their evil cause.
The deranged destroy Trump media uses Duke et al to demonize Trump while he, Duke, uses them as a recruitment tool to win over more empty angry damaged souls looking for an identity, purpose and cause. Some critics of Trump's say that he and Steve Bannon are mainstreaming neo-Nazi/white supremacism; but that's a lie. Truth is it's the stupid, blind, hate driven media that's doing that with the undo attention they're giving them, when they should be completely ignored and blacked out.

 When liberalism is in trouble it's time to tear down statues.

symbolizing and tainted with the evil of racism, slavery and hate (from statues of Lee to the Washington Monument) we must then turn our wrath on Moslem houses of worship: mosques. For Mohammed, the founder of Islam  (the 7th century Adolf Hitler) was a vicious, violent, intolerant, predatory, anti-Semitic, imperialistic racist thug who was a huge slave-master owning thousands of male, female and children slaves:  Blacks, Jews, Christians and Arab pagans.
Mohammed was the 7th century Hitler. Hitler was the 20th century Mohammed.
Indeed, when Mohammed and his followers fled from Mecca and settled as refugees in the city of Medina it had a thriving community of religious Jews that got on well with the city's pagan citizens. But on the day Mohammed died the only Jews left in Medina were converts to Islam and slaves. What happened in between was horrific, murderous persecution as the city was ethnically cleansed of most of its Jews (see). Why? Because the Jews refused to give up their faith and accept Mohammed as God's final, ultimate, perfect prophet (superior to and closer to God than Moses so he believed) with the absolute revelation of saving truth for mankind: the Koran.
This persecution drove Medina's Jews to form a desperate military alliance with Mohammed's enemies the get rid of him so they could live in peace and safety once again. But that was not to be. Mohammed defeated the Meccans, and in revenge violently turned on the Jews for their "treachery" butchering, beheading and enslaving them. 
Therefore, no cultural revolution to purify America of racism, slavery, bigotry and hate can be complete without including the destruction of mosques. Mosques are unquestionably symbols of racist oppression and man's inhumanity to man as bad if not worse than Confederate statues and memorials. For it was the Arabs that started the massive African slave trade centuries before Europeans got into the act - it was the Arabs that gave Europeans the idea and incentive to grow rich. It is estimated that Arab Moslems enslaved some 14 million African blacks legally and morally justifying it by the example of their slave owning "God-directed" prophet and the laws that he gave them (see). And though we're in the 21st century Moslems still own black slaves in certain parts of Africa (see) - and not one word of condemnation from CAIR because slavery is perfectly lawful in Islam.
Arab slave ship with its human cargo from Africa.
Moreover, we mustn't forget that the Barbary Wars, the next wars that our country fought after the revolution, was against Moslem pirates, profiteers and jihadis - who in the name of Allah, Islam and Mohammed attacked and seized at sea peaceful American merchant ships stealing their cargo, and killing or enslaving their crews.

Don't be deceived: Mohammed, Washington and Lee are three different faces of the same evil enemy of justice and humanity and must be erased from historical memory. Anyone who disagrees with me is evil, unAmerican, Nazi scum.

Washington barks happily and wags his tail every time he hears the Star Spangled Banner, God Bless America, Yankee Doodle or most any patriotic song.



As for hate driven, Neo-Nazi, white supremacist racist scum (a tiny, powerless minority that had nothing to do with Trump's election*) they put race above country (give skin color absolute value) and aren't true, proud, country first, patriotic American nationalists.

And while the racism of Neo-Nazi and white supremacists is evil, unAmerican and unpatriotic also evil, bigoted, divisive and unAmerican  are those on the radical race obsessed Left that deny whites any semblance of racial identity. It is racist bigotry, and therefore evil, to tell whites that they can't have a racial identity and pride in their race and its achievements - as if being white is morally corrupt, genetically flawed, oppressive and genocidal. This is insanity that leads to racial resentment, division, violence and hate. It leads to Charlottesville.

Racial pride is fine for the members of all races but becomes evil when taken to the extreme of supremacism: White, Black, Red, Hispanic, Asian, etc. Racial pride is morally good in all races so long as the goodness, beauty and potential for great achievements isn't monopolized and denied to other races. Be a proud White, Black, Red, Hispanic or Asian man or woman. But remember there is only one race: the HUMAN RACE; and that the great achievements of any one race is for the good, progress and evolution of all races and ethnic groups that make up the totality of mankind.






I thought it was the Russians that somehow mysteriously elected Donald Trump President? Now we're told by the divisive, race obsessed, identitarian, PC, Trump hating Left that it was "ethno white nationalists" or "white supremacists" that elected him as if all or most Americans who voted for him (the vast majority were middle class working whites) did so mainly because of race. We are told that after eight years of a popular black president the millions who made Trump his successor did so because they wanted a bigot like themselves in office who'd wipe out his accomplishments as if he'd never been president. And we're told that the reason for Trump not initially explicitly condemning white racism for Charlotteville was to avoid offending and alienating his "loyal racist base." But this is pure, utter, easily refutable rubbish.

Fact is, as Roger Simon points out at PJ Media (see), white supremacists make up a microscopic speck of the U.S. population (a fringe group) and have zero political clout. Indeed, according to a study done by History Channel on the Klu Klux Klan, at the height of its power in the 1920s it commanded a membership of 4 million supremacists. That was a staggering 4% of the total U.S. population at the time - politically significant by any measure as the Klan's influence over the Democratic Party into the 1960s proves. But by the 1990s (30 years after MLK's death) Klan membership dwindled to a low pitiful 10,000 supremacists or less. That would be .03% (3/100ths of 1%) of today's population of 320 million. In other words, as a voting block the KKK (still the largest white domestic supremacist group) is an impotent, insignificant, inconsequential nothing burger deserving not the least bit of credit for Donald Trump's historic victory.

Indeed, if every white racist had vanished on November 7th the election's outcome would have been unchanged with Trump winning the same swing states that made him President. Indeed, that Trump and the GOP need white supremacists to win elections is a bald face lie (as I prove HERE); that might have been true for the Democrats for 100 years; but never, not today or ever, of Lincoln's nationalist, non-racist party of emancipation, justice, civil rights and liberty. 


It would seem that nothing short of Donald Trump abducting David Duke, binding him in chains and dragging him into the Oval Office and strangling him to death would satisfy the race obsessed Left that he wasn't a white supremacist, and that he meant what he said when he disavowed supremacists and their bigotry.

But just as the demonization of Trump as a racist bigot couldn't stop him from being elected, so will it prove ineffectual in 2020 when he's reelected and most likely with a larger minority vote.





when Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union "The Evil Empire."
when George W. Bush called Iran, Iraq and North Korea the "Axis of Evil."
they're freaking out because Donald Trump is threatening to rain down utter destruction on the evil, murdering, socialist Norks if they dare attack Guam, or any part of the US.
They're all
Wealth Creating Free Market Capitalism vs. Impoverishing Oppressive Egalitarian Socialism
Which side are you on liberals?
with a small government, freedom loving conservative at its helm who's shrinking the size, scope and power of the growth killing regulatory state? Donald Trump is moving the country in the exact opposite direction of a totalitarian, command and control centralized communist dictatorship. Truth is Barack Obama has more in common with Fat Boy that does President Trump. In fact, the American people are freer today than they were on the day Barack Obama left office.
