I have become increasingly disturbed by the media’s proclivity, to initially attempt to absolve the state, for failing to prevent horrific acts of terrorism. They nearly always try to classify every new terrorist attack, as having been perpetrated by a ‘lone wolf,’ unaligned with any acknowledged Islamic Jihadist organization. As one shrill grandma once dramatically shrieked, “What difference does it make?” I submit that it only matters to the collectivist bureaucrats and politicians, not to the individual victims of these massacres.
If a loved one is dead or maimed, what possible difference could it make, to learn whether a rabid Jihadi was following the orders of their beloved god Allah directly, or via one of its vicious packs? In either case, it is their fundamentalist religious beliefs and well documented goofy dogma, motivating their suicidal ‘martyrdom missions.’ So why do these irrational Jihadist’s affiliations seem to matter so much, to the so-called ‘authorities?’
First, it is important to understand that without the threat of a formidable external enemy, it is difficult to convince sheeple that they need shepherds and/or rulers. Yet, their flocks of increasingly dumbed down sheeple, are no longer sophisticated enough to recognize aberrant ideology itself, as an existential threat. The rulers must demonize an organization and its leader, to provide an identifiable entity to fear. Consider these as the wolf packs and their alpha males. Read the rest of this entry »
Now that I seem to have outgrown the affliction, after ten years in my hermitage, it is probably safe to admit that I spent most of my life as an incurable romantic. I never minded watching a chick flick, especially if it put a date or mate in a cuddly mood, and even enjoyed reading the occasional romantic novel.
When single, I thoroughly enjoyed courting, and developed a proclivity for rescuing damsels in distress. Even though such chivalry occasionally earned me an eventual broken heart, I couldn’t kick the habit. After a suitable period of melancholy, I would be vulnerable to trying to save another one. Simply put, I loved the feeling of falling and being in love.
Perhaps this is why I was so impressed with Bill Clinton’s speech last night. Even though it was obvious to me that he was lying through his teeth, and leaving out some rather unpleasant episodes in their timeline, I found his narrative brilliantly written and masterfully delivered, for the task at hand. He nearly had me ready to vote for her. Read the rest of this entry »
Between the AdBlock and NoScript add-ins to FireFox, I manage to navigate large ‘busy’ websites with minimum graphic interference, while reading their articles. Occasionally, however, they include a video clip I would like to view. Trying to figure out, by trial and error, which blocked scripts I need to temporarily enable to get the imbedded player to function, can be rather frustrating. Fortunately, I have learned that most of them can be found and played quicker on YouTube. Thus, after following the Drudge link to: “Obama’s brother rips Barack in TV interview…” and reading the interesting article, I gave up trying to get their video player to load. Sure enough, it was already on YouTube:
So that is where Piers Morgan landed. Personally, Britain is more than welcome to have him back. It was an interesting Read the rest of this entry »
One can’t make this stuff up: “Why Obama’s half-brother says he’ll be voting for Donald Trump”
President Obama’s Kenyan half-brother wants to make America great again — so he’s voting for Donald Trump.
“I like Donald Trump because he speaks from the heart,” Malik Obama told The Post from his home in the rural village of Kogelo. “Make America Great Again is a great slogan. I would like to meet him.”
Obama, 58, a longtime Democrat, said his “deep disappointment” in his brother Barack’s administration has led him to recently switch allegiance to “the party of Lincoln.”

Mike Pence gets his new ride today:
Now, that is a class act. I wonder what they will raise Kaine in… 😀 ◄Dave►
This is delicious. Finally a BLM protest that makes good sense: “Some Black Lives Matter activists plan not to vote in November“:
Newsome is leading a new campaign to get African Americans to do something that few civil rights leaders have recommended: stop voting. He believes that only by withdrawing support from the major parties can black communities force politicians to address their concerns about police brutality.
He calls it “I Ain’t Voting” — and he says he’s aware that it could be seen as a rejection of the struggle that a previous generation went through.
“Before, we fought to have our right to vote,” he says. “But now we need to fight to have our right to vote mean something.” [Emphasis mine]
Brilliant! I wish him well. Read the rest of this entry »
There is nothing new about comparing Melania Trump with Michelle Obama:
…but I find it fascinating that instead of the early acrimony over the Republican convention rules yesterday, all the media is focusing on this morning is Melania’s speech. Invariably, these stories include comparative photos of these two giving their convention speeches. The visual contrast is nearly as striking as Garrison’s cartoon. Combined with the controversy over the plagiarism issue, anyone who did not see the speech last night, is probably highly motivated to go watch it today on YouTube.
Those who do, will likely be as charmed by this exquisite lady Read the rest of this entry »
I made the mistake of turning on the TV tonight, for information regarding the horrific terrorist attack in Nice. Obviously, I am not the only one pissed off at the Jihadist barbarians, and our feckless politicians. First, Newt was on fire:
…and bluntly telling it like it is. Then, General Flynn Read the rest of this entry »
I can think of no other explanation for this unbelievably stupid behavior. Police body cams work, and here are two of them in action:
There are several versions of this on YouTube, which also include the speeding chase before the stop; but this one is the clearest of the actual shooting. What is that object on the ground by the truck door that can be seen after he was shot? Read the rest of this entry »
And Stephan Molyneux once again demonstrates that it is worth waiting for:
One minor clarification might be that a malfunctioning tail or stop light, is often referred to as a “broken tail light” in a traffic stop, even if it is just a burned out bulb and no outward physical damage is apparent. Read the rest of this entry »
