Here is a little something for the Bobbsy Twins… Joe and Mika.. Those few nanoseconds I caught over on MSNBC Hannity chose to mock…this is what we are up against.
Before wrapping up his show Friday night, Sean Hannity took aim at Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough. Earlier this morning, the MSNBC personality made a bold claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin has some major dirt on President Trump. “The biggest truth that Donald Trump doesn’t want out. And that it’s the truth we’ve been asking about since January––or I’m sorry––make that December of 2015. And that is that Vladimir Putin has something on Donald Trump,” Scarborough declared. “Vladimir Putin has something that he is holding over Donald Trump’s head. And it is bad.” Let’s just say the Fox News host was skeptical of “Liberal Joe.” — “How would Liberal Joe know that?” Hannity asked. “Joe, you’re losing it. You need psychiatric help. Where are your sources? Could it be that you’re colluding with the Russians? It’s the only thing I could conclude.”
Thanks to everyone for the Thanksgiving well wishes..back from a lovely holiday with friends and family. Let us not rest, but keep the torch of liberty aflame. Snuff out the liberal media’s lies and deceit. How about this one for a start? :
Allegedly unbiased Washington Post reporter Janell Ross spoke at a top-secret meeting of liberal movers and shakers last week, where Democratic donors including billionaire George Soros outlined the future of their progressive agenda.
A Post spokesperson told the Washington Free Beacon that Ross took part of the California event “without notifying her superiors that she would be attending.”
The Democracy Alliance, which hosted the event, bills itself as “the largest network of donors dedicated to building the progressive movement in the United States” on the group’s official website. The liberal group also claims to “play a leading role in fostering the infrastructure necessary to advance a progressive agenda” in the United States.
The group intended to keep “the identities of its members and guests confidential,” according to the Beacon, but the paper obtained a “detailed conference agenda that lists both events and featured guests.” Once the Beacon revealed the attendees, the group reportedly beefed up security and asked participants to keep details off social media.
I seem to be back in business… got a late post in yesterday in case you missed it. Al Franken cut from PBS honoring David Letterman, but Letterman’s scandal?
Now on to the Girl Scouts on instilling a moral compass and values into our little girls. Will boys/men even want to be around girls and women by the time we get done with this trip we seem to be on. A chaperone at all times apparently. Turning our kids into unfeeling automatons.
The Girl Scouts issued a warning to parents on their website Monday asking them to think twice before forcing their daughters to hug or kiss relatives at holiday gatherings.
“Have you ever insisted, ‘Uncle just got here—go give him a big hug!’ or ‘Auntie gave you that nice toy, go give her a kiss,’ when you were worried your child might not offer affection on her own? If yes, you might want to reconsider the urge to do that in the future,” the organization posted in an article titled “Reminder: She Doesn’t Owe Anyone a Hug. Not Even at the Holidays.”
“Think of it this way, telling your child that she owes someone a hug either just because she hasn’t seen this person in a while or because they gave her a gift can set the stage for her questioning whether she “owes” another person any type of physical affection when they’ve bought her dinner or done something else seemingly nice for her later in life.”
The Girl Scouts’ post encourages parents to offer their daughters ways to show gratitude that do not require physical contact, including “a smile, a high-five, or even an air kiss.”
Other wonderful things the Girl Scouts are doing-

Last Saturday I posted a “Here is Saturday’s special Thought for the Day.” Sometimes a tweet captures something that a lengthy post can’t. This just may be a regular feature. Today I give you Tony Podesta’s art collection. How can a normal breathing person want to be around him and not suspect something is very wrong? Hillary, your best buds are the Podestas…………
While everyone is placing bets as to which GOPer got the ball rolling over at Fusion GPS, an important misinformation factoid is being pushed by a few brave Hillary sycophants. No doubt called upon by Hillary to walk the plank if they wished to stay on the Clinton payroll. Unfortunately, the story was broken by the Washington Post and alas is behind a firewall. So I will have to take it on faith that the conclusions that the Federalist came to merit consideration. The GOP had nothing to do with the funding of the Dossier. If true, then the waters must not be muddied. Opposition research is one thing, creating this bizarre dossier another matter. Here tis:
2) No, the Russian dossier was not initially funded by Republicans
When the news broke that the Clinton campaign and the DNC were admitting partial responsibility for the Russia dossier, journalists acted like they’d presented it as a Clinton campaign operation all along. They also claimed it was initially funded by a Republican.
Incorrect. And Tapper took the tweet down when the error was pointed out. There is no evidence that a Republican donor or Republican campaign was ever involved with the Russian dossier. Fusion GPS claimed to reporters (though they did not provide evidence) that a Republican funded separate opposition research on Trump, dealing with his business interests. But as the Washington Post itself reports, the dossier did not exist until after the Democrats hired Fusion GPS:
Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research.
After that, Fusion GPS hired dossier author Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence officer with ties to the FBI and the U.S. intelligence community, according to those people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
Full story at the The Federalist with the nine other reported claims.
the time is here. Best yet, the mark of the beast or rather, a chip is now implanted on all driver’s license except nine States have been dragging their feet. An RFID chip. And just how much does that chip do? I am getting ahead of myself. Here is what she says:
Now, there is no debate as to whether or not the card will contain a chip that is capable of tracking people, the only debate has been around which tracking technology better suits their needs. Here are a few quotes again from the official government document:
“ DHS also invites comments on how States would or could incorporate a separate WHTI- compliant technology, such as an RFID-enabled vicinity chip technology, in addition to the REAL ID PDF417 barcode requirement.”
“States can leverage the same infrastructure that they will need to purchase for REAL ID to incorporate MRZ, proximity chips, and vicinity chip technology onto a driver’s license.”
“The use of RFID is essential to the WHTI program in order to ensure facilitation at crowded U.S. land and sea crossing points. Similar concerns are not implicated by REAL ID, which is one of the factors that led DHS to select the 2D bar code as the common machine readable technology on driver’s licenses and identification cards. DHS encourages States to explore alternative technologies on their driver’s licenses and identification cards in order to promote security and technology advances as well as e-government initiatives a State may wish to explore.”
“DHS does not believe that non-compliant driver’s licenses or credit cards are acceptable documents to establish identity.” Meaning – no chip, no ID. Doesn’t this remind you of something else?
Can you see where all of this is headed? Many of the people that are attempting to implement this thing may have “good intentions”, but we all know what they say about “good intentions”.
If we put up with a national ID card, then the Obama administration will be emboldened to try to implement the “universal Internet ID” that they have been talking about.
The sad truth is that America is no longer “the land of the free“. The government has decided that in order to keep us “safe”, everything that we do must be watched, tracked, traced, recorded and controlled.
America: Land of the mindless by Mustang
I recently read an article by David Abel in the Boston Globe that spoke in sympathetic terms about Mr. Victor Ruiz, a 64-year old retired bartender in Puerto Rico, who was forced to wait 35 hours for gasoline. Ruiz, father of six, is well known for his skill in making Pina Coladas and playing dominos. Abel writes that Ruiz was a patient man and one who would rather do things for himself and not rely on the help of others. His four-bedroom home was destroyed by Hurricane Maria, forcing Mr. and Mrs. Ruiz to stay with a daughter. There is no power or running water, which placed the Ruiz family in the same predicament as everyone else on the island of Corozal.
At some point, Victor noted that their cars (e.g., more than one) began to run low on fuel, which was crucial because without power, Victor needed the use of his car battery to power the machine he uses to treat his emphysema. So, one morning about a week after the hurricane, Victor took his gasoline canister and walked to a gasoline station a half-mile from his daughter’s house. There, he waited with others also attempting to get gasoline. Well, with no power, there won’t be any pumping of gasoline and so Victor and other neighbors waited in the hot sun, in a growing line. They waited until nightfall, passing the time by playing cards, and eating rice and beans. Mrs. Ruiz came to relieve him for about a half-hour while Victor took a power nap.
Not long after that, a worker at a nearby propane plant opened a valve that had been damaged by the hurricane, sparking a fire that sent a dark cloud of smoke over the town. Police ordered Ruiz and others waiting for gas to evacuate the area.
Ruiz lumbered to his wife’s SUV and drove back to his daughter’s house, but upon arrival Victor lost consciousness. His wife found him dead sitting half inside the vehicle, still wearing his inhaler.
So, okay, what we have here is a tragedy, but not an unforeseen one. Who doesn’t know that hurricanes are a destructive force of nature? Who living in Puerto Rico, or anywhere else where hurricanes are known to visit, doesn’t understand that the aftermath of a terrible storm brings weeks of challenges and discomforts? Who living in such places doesn’t know that preparation for a hurricane is the key to survival? If you are living along the beach, you must evacuate. If you are living up to several tens of miles inland, you need to prepare your property for strong winds, heavy rain, and flying debris. Some of us even have to be watchful for tornadoes. If we rely on gasoline for power, then we stock up on gasoline; we store it in a safe place. Or, if we are on breathing apparatus, then we need to evacuate to a community shelter where medical personnel are always nearby.
In the aftermath of a hurricane, or any other natural disaster, there is no magic wand to wave to make everything better again. Life isn’t like that … so, as I mentioned earlier, preparation is the key. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Why didn’t Mr. Ruiz prepare for himself and his family in advance of Maria’s arrival? My guess is that Mr. Ruiz has become mentally dependent upon the government. The aftermath of a large storm isn’t his problem, it’s the government’s problem —except that we can now see that it was Mr. Ruiz’ problem and no one contributed more to his own demise than he did.
Now let’s extrapolate. Suppose thoroughly bad people have been able to hack into America’s several electrical grids and let’s say that they are able to shut down the power supply over huge areas of the United States. Without power, there will be no gasoline for anyone; no one will be able to go to the grocery store and buy food, or water. Under these circumstances, we can say that it would be the fault of the United States government for the government has done nothing at all to prevent such shenanigans. Huge populations could be affected and it is my guess that, failing the opportunity to secure cash from an ATM, or obtain gasoline, or food and water, it would not take more than a few days for anarchy to reign … and it wouldn’t be pretty.
So, here are my two points: first, understanding how incompetent the government is, isn’t it time for Americans to stop relying on the government for their total wellbeing? Second, if Americans aren’t willing to prepare for the worst-case scenario, whether that be terrible storms or enemies of the United States, they have no one to blame for their suffering but themselves. If we persist in relying on the government to feed us, water us, provide us with power to generate the things we value most, then we are simply mind-numbing stupid.
Where am I wrong about this?
