‘Today, I am a Muslim too’ – Welcome to New York City

USA: ‘Today, I am a Muslim too’ – thousands of New Yorkers decry Trump’s travel ban so reads the headline.

The Arab call to prayer in the heart of New York City. One of the loudest spokesperson’s was Sarsour a woman to keep  our eye on. She was front and center with the Women’s March held recently. Anyone who doesn’t denounce her is questionable in my book. She is out there supporting Sharia law. Perhaps Planned Parenthood could include an educational program concerning what Sharia law entails for women while they are infiltrating our schools. Throw in Chelsea Clinton to the mix.

Muslims and Muslim sympathizers protested Donald Trump today in New York’s Times Square. Chelsea Clinton boasted about being there with her daughter, Charlotte. Hamas darling, Linda Sarsour was also there spreading hysteria and propaganda about President Donald Trump.

In Sarsour’s speech, she reminded people about the executive order that Democratic President FDR passed which put Japanese Americans in internment camps implying that Muslims and minorities could possibly suffer the same fate under a Trump presidency.

There was also a loud Arab call to prayer during this protest in NYC. In an Islamic call to prayer (adhan), the Muslim is shouting Allahu Akbar which translates to ‘God is greater’ or ‘God is greatest’. They mean that their ‘god’ is greater than your God and or the government. This is a blatant act of Islamic supremacy.

Sunday Respite – Ask the Mountains

I chose Vangelis “Ask the Mountains” for my respite. This is a stunner as far as a visual experience. I highly recommend watching this in full screen. You may need some Dramamine.

California super floods, lessons from the past

A 43-day storm that began in December 1861 put central and southern California underwater for up to six months, and it could happen again so goes the headline story from a 2013 Scientific American article. We knew sooner of later the Oroville Dam problem would be laid at the feet of Global Warming, if not George Bush. It turns out California has a long history of major drought followed by massive flooding. It is a great read and well worth the time. First the fake news warning:

Nonexistent Global Warming Crisis Blamed for Trouble at Oroville Dam “Oroville Is a Warning for California Dams, as Climate Change Adds Stress,” the New York Times reported.
Broken California Dam Is a Sign of Emergencies to Come,” reads an article published in Scientific American, adding that “[c]limate change is leading to more extreme rainfalls that can overwhelm infrastructure.”

Actually,

California has a history of abruptly switching from drought conditions to torrential rain.

Brewer describes a great sheet of brown rippling water extending from the Coast Range to the Sierra Nevada. One-quarter of the state’s estimated 800,000 cattle drowned in the flood, marking the beginning of the end of the cattle-based ranchero society in California. One-third of the state’s property was destroyed, and one home in eight was destroyed completely or carried away by the floodwaters.california-b

The Coming Megafloods, talks about what is responsible for most of the largest historical floods in many western states. The megaflood to strike the American West in recent history occurred during the winter of 1861-62. California bore the brunt of the damage. This disaster turned enormous regions of the state into inland seas for months, and took thousands of human lives. The costs were devastating: one quarter of California’s economy was destroyed, forcing the state into bankruptcy.

Today, the same regions that were submerged in 1861-62 are home to California’s fastest-growing cities. Although this flood is all but forgotten, important lessons from this catastrophe can be learned. Much of the insight can be gleaned from harrowing accounts in diary entries, letters and newspaper articles, as well as the book Up and Down California in 1860-1864, written by William Brewer, who surveyed the new state’s natural resources with state geologist Josiah Whitney.

In 1861, farmers and ranchers were praying for rain after two exceptionally dry decades. In December their prayers were answered with a vengeance, as a series of monstrous Pacific storms slammed—one after another—into the West coast of North America, from Mexico to Canada. The storms produced the most violent flooding residents had ever seen, before or since.

Trump repeals coal mining regulations, signs legislation

If you missed the presser yesterday, you really missed some great theatre.  A little reported action done right after his presser was this action. This was another IED the Obama administration implanted in December as he was going out the door. It essentially closed down coal mining in Appalachia. This is why Trump won. Five seconds of Clinton: “We’re Going To Put A Lot Of Coal Miners And Coal Companies Out Of Business”

President Trump on Thursday signed legislation ending a key Obama administration coal mining rule.

The bill quashes the Office of Surface Mining’s Stream Protection Rule, a regulation to protect waterways from coal mining waste that officials finalized in December.

The legislation is the second Trump has signed into law ending an Obama-era environmental regulation. On Tuesday, he signed a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution undoing a financial disclosure requirement for energy companies.

Both the mining and financial disclosure bills are the tip of a GOP push to undo a slate of regulations instituted in the closing days of the Obama administration. The House has passed several CRA resolutions, and the Senate has so far sent three of them to President Trump for his signature. More at The Hill

Republicans argued the stream rule is duplicative and would force more coal mines to close, forcing more miners out of work. Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota supported the rule’s repeal.

The Obama administration finalized the stream rule in December 2016. Democrats and environmentalists support the rule because it restricts the amount of mining that can happen in Appalachia.

FBI releases Trump’s real estate investigation records from 1970’s

One has to wonder why this has to make it to the light of day right now. It would be interesting who made the decision. What with all that is going on with Trump it is pretty much a ho-hum. Any other time I suppose it would be a big deal. If it had been me, I would have shown FBI director Comey the door. Here we go:

comey3The FBI on Wednesday released nearly 400 pages of records from an investigation it conducted on Donald Trump’s family real estate company in the early 1970s.

The documents consist of interview notes, handwritten statements and FBI reports compiled during the bureau’s investigation, which occurred between 1972 and 1974.

The FBI’s investigation centered on allegations that the Trump Management Company, which was owned by Trump’s father, Fred, discriminated against applicants for apartment rentals based on their race.

The documents released on Wednesday include statements from tenants and Trump company employees who claimed Fred Trump discriminated against black renters.

“Fred Trump told me not to rent to blacks,” one rental supervisor who worked for Fred Trump in 1973 told a FBI special agent.

The United States coup d’é·tat is well underway

The vultures are circling. Flynn’s demise is only the beginning. The coup is underway. Make no mistake. Morning Joe is over the top this morning. Hysterical. The drums are beating. Reality has been lost. The coup is underway. Bloomberg has this:

…He was also a fat target for Democrats. Remember Flynn’s breakout national moment last summer was when he joined the crowd at the Republican National Convention from the dais calling for Hillary Clinton to be jailed.

In normal times, the idea that U.S. officials entrusted with our most sensitive secrets would selectively disclose them to undermine the White House would alarm those worried about creeping authoritarianism. Imagine if intercepts of a call between Obama’s incoming national security adviser and Iran’s foreign minister leaked to the press before the nuclear negotiations began? The howls of indignation would be deafening.

In the end, it was Trump’s decision to cut Flynn loose. In doing this he caved in to his political and bureaucratic opposition. Nunes told me Monday night that this will not end well. “First it’s Flynn, next it will be Kellyanne Conway, then it will be Steve Bannon, then it will be Reince Priebus,” he said. Put another way, Flynn is only the appetizer. Trump is the entree. Read the whole thing at Bloomberg

Flynn out – Wasn’t what Kerry and Pelosi did to Bush much worse?

The Dems get their first scalp with Flynn. All red meat. They are hanging it on some remote law from 1799. The Logan Act – which prohibits private citizens from negotiating with foreign governments having a dispute with the U.S. That act was passed in 1799 and has never been adjudicated, so prosecution could be difficult.

Forget the private citizen bit. We were in transition in leadership. Wasn’t it much more damaging for Pelosi and Kerry as Senators to undermine the Bush administration’s policy on Assad?

During the Bush Administration, the Dems did what they could to undermine his policy in attempting to isolate Syria. From Kerry to Pelosi, they defied him and went waltzing over to meet with their “friend” that they were sure was going to be our go to guy in the Middle East. A butcher with massive amounts of chemical weapons, no mind. What is it with all of these Progressives and their infatuation with dictators?

FLASHBACK: Pelosi Visits Assad In Syria, Tells Him “We Came In Friendship, Hope, And Peace”… April 5, 2007:

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held talks with Syria’s leader Wednesday despite White House objections, saying she pressed President Bashar Assad over his country’s support for militant groups and passed him a peace message from Israel.

pelosi-large

In 2007, Nancy Pelosi, over strong objections from the  State Department, visited Syria, and said, “The road to Damascus is a road to  peace.” Senator John Kerry predicted that “Syria will change as it embraces a  legitimate relationship with the United States.” Read more:  Newsbusters

The Washington Free Beacon in an article titled “An Affair to Remember: John Kerry Hearts Bashar al-Assad” called Kerry the Syrian dictator’s “highest-ranking apologist in American politics”:

Kerry thwarted efforts during the Bush administration to diplomatically isolate Syria after the administration’s own efforts to engage the regime ended in failure in 2003.

Kerry served as the Obama administration’s envoy to Assad, leading a delegation to Syria just days after Obama’s inauguration. There he listened to Bashar Assad lecture him that Washington must “move away from a policy based on dictating decisions.”
