Coping: With the “Obamalutionaries”

A Monday Political Treatise from the Old Reporter.

It’s not exactly a “revolution.”  And it’s not quite a Civil War…

But neither is it a “coup d’etat” at least in the usual sense.

The term “sedition” comes close, too. But not quite.

The only word that fits is “The Obamalution.”

Obamalution: (noun) A clever legal ruse to pull off a class of coup d’ etat never labeled such but having the same effect. It is a slow-motion revolution – headed by a former president – commenced by placing radicalized shills in unfireable government positions where they can leak secrets and commit obstructions without check. It is then perpetrated via slow-motion media allegations which never cite proof, only “sources” and with media co-conspirators. An Obamalution has the focus and the intent of subverting and preventing support of the legislative efforts of a new sitting and duly elected U.S. President.”

Most Americans have their “thinking boxed-in” by the constant discussion even today of the U.S. Civil War.  A war, by the way, that saw freedom delivered to enslaved blacks delivered by Lincoln’s Republican Party.

The Obamaites don’t mention this often – if ever – instead they continue pandering to the free lunch crowd.

OK, so if the U.S. Civil War is not Obama’s template, which one is?

Might I hold up for your consideration the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939)?

“The war began after a pronunciamiento (declaration of opposition) by a group of generals of the Spanish Republican Armed Forces, originally under the leadership of José Sanjurjo, against the elected, leftist government of the Second Spanish Republic, at the time under the leadership of President Manuel Azaña. The Nationalist group was supported by a number of conservative groups, including the Spanish Confederation of Autonomous Right-wing Groups (Confederación Española de Derechas Autónomas, or CEDA), monarchists such as the religious conservative (Catholic) Carlists, and the Falange Española Tradicionalista y de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional Sindicalista, a fascist group.[nb 2][7] Sanjurjo was killed in an aircraft accident while attempting to return from exile in Portugal, whereupon Franco emerged as the leader of the Nationalists.

Ure’s truly is getting genuinely sick and tired of the leaks of unsubstantiated allegations plus the double-standards in D.C.

Obama gets a pass on staying in Washington to pursue his anti-Trump agenda.

All that’s missing is Obama’s version of the “Pronunciamiento:”

Generally, a pronunciamento is preceded by a period of preparation during which the organizing officers “sound out” the larger community of officers to determine if their views are widely shared. After the pronunciamiento the would-be rebel officers then wait for the rest of the armed forces to declare for or against the government.

There is no fighting at this point; if the rebellion has no support the organizers lose. They may have to flee the country or retire from the armed forces, or they may be arrested. If the bulk of the armed forces declare in favor of the pronunciamiento the government resigns. It is similar to a vote of no-confidence, except that it is issued by the armed forces, not by the legislature.

This is where we are right now.

Former president Obama is not likely to be forthright enough to issue his own pronunciamento directly.  Why should he?  He’s got stooges who will send it out piecemeal on his behalf.

Take, for example former attorney General Loretta Lynch who in a YouTube video uses the code words: “fear and uncertainty”  – speaks of rights rollbacks – and then goes on to call for more marches, and demonstrations coding that violence is OK because in past events “…they’ve bled, yes, and some of them have died…” (  Not quite a unifying message, is it?

I would have thought Lynch to be smarter. Baltimore and Ferguson are two major examples that come to mind showing how a manipulated public and social media inciting does itself no favors by going violent.

Still, think how much quicker the 1917 Bolshevik adventures would have been with a side-order of Social.

Lynch gets right up to the (carefully lawyerly weasel-worded) line where “free speech” becomes insurrection, inciting to riot, and sedition.  A revolucion via code words.

Gotta tell you, this looks like bullshit of the highest order.  Either that, or it is her piece of the pronunciamento to deliver.

So too, we see this as a context-setter as are the Obamalutionaries and their orchestrated leaks designed to sabotage the effective administration of the sitting President.

Obama’s crooked democrat party screwed Bernie Sanders out of a fair run. He might have beaten Trump.  Where was the champion of just-us then?

Obama was making sure America’s borders were wide open.

Bring in the unvetted!

When he didn’t go back to ChiTown – I thought to myself at the time “This guy knows Chicago isn’t a home town… I wonder if he’s staying in D.C. much like the Bolsheviks stayed in Moscow?”

The Left even now can’t believe Obama’s hand-pick successor was defeated.

I suppose the silver lining to this is we now know how slow the Left thinks.  In four months – almost to the day, they still don’t understand who won.  And the ‘tards are whom?

Now, unsatisfied with 8-years of wrecking America, (open borders, cash to Iran…the list goes on and on) Obama continues to push his prurient brand of racism. It’s the “everyone but US is a racist” kind.” Yeah, right….

Worse? It’s being supported by the wildly biased (and successful guilt-sellers) of east coast media.

The facts in the headline today outline how the alliances in the street are forming up.  Take Berkeley – the commie hotbed west – for example.  Sunday a group of pro-Trump supporters held a gathering.  Then come the lefties and then here come the anarchists.

Even the Washington Post was seen to admit “Pro-Trump rally in Berkeley turns violent as protesters clash with the president’s supporters.”  A headline “Lefties and Anarchists attack Peaceful Trumpers” would be more accurate.

While the historically unread East Coast Libs don’t see it, a few of us with a wider reading of history see it very much as Obama’s Civil War.

Lynch’s piece of Obama’s left-wing pronunciamento  aside, we expect more of the same from the Sour Grapes Party.

Is this to say Trump is without fault?


He should stop tweets at night and stay focused on getting the Obama shills booted out. 

What’s more, now that Congress (the Fools on the Hill) will actually look into the wire-tapping allegations, I already have a good idea how that will come out in the wash:

The sneaks and plants of the Oministration – having learned from the Clintons, as masters of obfuscation and plausible deniability – no doubt did electronic surveillance indirectly.  The intel “club” is playing us all.

What  I expect to  occur is a replay of the admission that a FISA judge authorized the surveillance, not Obama himself, Jarrett herself, or anyone else who’s close to Obama.   Arms-length, you see, is how the game in played.

Despite the claim of James Clapper, (“Clapper Says There Was No FISA Request For Trump’s Campaign”) Clapper is, in my view, something of an expert in obfuscation and misdirection.

Perhaps if the question had been more open-ended  (like “Did anyone spy on anyone in the building?”) we might have gotten a better answer. 

You see, in Lawyer Land, Clapper could be nominally telling the truth:  Maybe it wasn’t “for the campaign,” but if it was a person in the building, it DOES become misleading…

Back to Trump?  He has a growing list of faults, to be sure.

Rather than Tweet, he needs to get a federal grand jury empaneled to a) go after the Obama plants and b) dig out supportable facts before repeating claims.

Turn off twitter, turn on law enforcement.

Ure has an idea:

Can we just get back to being America, please?

And Barack, please stop inciting through former aides and honor the decency of former colleagues who didn’t orchestrate opposition.  Past presidents had the respect for the Office to stay out of Washington politics and let the will of the people roll.

Obama’s failure to do this will merely reinforce the idea – dawning on many of us out here in fly-over country – that Obama is pushing America toward Civil War even now.  That’s when I  get really pissed.

The reason there are fewer democrazies holding office today than at any time since the 1920’s is that ya’ll ain’t team players.

America is a Team Country.  It’s not Obama’s country.  Not Trump’s, either. 

It’s a Team Country.  You know, like in NASCAR TEAMS and NFL TEAMS and marketing TEAMS and engineering TEAMS.

This is why the democrats lost four months ago.  WTF? Grow up!

Texas is the only state with a TEXIT Option.  While it’s true that Texas can not secede from the Union, what we can do is re-form into five states. Think about that for a minute: 8-more Texas senators.  Count House members.

Might not be enough to drain the whole swamp, but might lower the water level a bit.  We need more clear-thinking, more reading of history – and not just the politically correct crap taught in schools today. 

We need to spot civil war templates when they are in play. Jarrett, holdovers, Lynch, Berkeley last night…yup, has the hallmarks to me.

I don’t believe it would take too much effort for a Federal Grand Jury to find the planted leakers and who they take their orders from.

Seems to me FBI chief James Comey has a lot to answer for, too.   I give him one more week, maybe two, before Trump says “You’re Fired…”

Why can’t Comey find the leakers? I’d suspect Ms. Jarrett might even have some of them on her speed dial.

As I figured our income taxes and got it filed this weekend a constant question rolled through my mind.

“Ure paid how much income tax to keep this circus going?”

Walking the Talk

Mr. Ure has put on his censorship hat over on the Comments side of this site.

Not hard censorship (like a contrary opinion in the NY Times, lol): It’s just that I will NOT approve comments that are purely ad hominem attacks.

If an attack on another commenter comes as a by-product of stating a position or offering additional facts, then fine. But comments like “You’re just another stupid Trumptard…” and such – NO!

“Listen butt-face, you forget (fact #1 and fact #2 and…)” is OK. Collateral damage.  Cost of engaging.

But to just say “You’re a butt-face Trumptard” – well, that’s the same kind of innuendo that the Obamalutionaries engage in and I won’t stand for it in “my house.”

My time is too valuable to babysit.

Any comments using the term “Trumptard” will also be deleted.

I (sometimes grudgingly) referred to Obama while in office as “the president.” OK, maybe President Trainwreck or President Useless a few times. But that’s because I read and understand 18 U.S.Code on illegal aliens. My bad.

This was even while he was installing his shills and keeping the borders open.  I was unduly kind. Generous.

Now, though, he is fair game. A public figure, a menace to the will of the people, he and his Obamalutionaries will no longer be allowed to use the word Trumptard.

We are one country and if that’s a hard concept to understand, maybe it’s time to go home shopping in Ferguson or Berkeley.

The Left owns social media, too.  I bet if I were to use terms like Obamalutionaries on Social I’d be banned.

If the radical left was honest (don’t hold your breath) they would at least respect the Office of the President of the United States enough to scrub the word Trumptard.

But this isn’t how Zuke Markerberg got his billions, now, is it?  For some, the leftist tune is a gold record.  And so, this sick shit plays on.

Around the Ranch: Solar Panel Maintenance

After checking battery voltages and such Friday I notice the south rack of solar panels was putting out only 650-watts worth of power.

Saturday morning I loaded up my tool cart and went investigating.

Turns out that a wasp nest had been built around one of the power leads. I don’t know what kind of acid is involved, but whatever it is wasps do, it ate through several wires.

A few minutes of wire stripping, new connectors and putting on tape and electrical dope and back good as new.

Lesson though? You can’t just look at panel voltage because with an MPPT controller, the panel voltage will be the same no matter how many panels are online.

You need to look at current (and total power generated).

Naturally, after getting back to the 1.6 kW output from that rack, that ensured at least a week of cloudy weather to come.

Much like Elaine feeding the birds will cause rain, so will my pulling maintenance on the panels.  Toss in a car wash and we got 1.6” of rain in the gauge…

Coping: With the “Obamalutionaries” — 47 Comments

  1. Here’s a phrase for ya George…

    Cold Civil war.

    That’s where we are… globalists vs nationalists. MR. EX Presidente Clinton pretty much summed it up with his speech, that we nationalists will destroy the world…
    Huh? So we should allow them to destroy our culture, and now, every red blooded American patriot is now a ‘white nationalist’? While they have absconded with ‘morality’?
    Beans, bullets and bandaids ain’t near enough to withstand what’s coming. The good guys are like a herd of cats up against a herd of buffaloes…
    Methinks, if they ‘get Trump’, cold will go hot, like, over night.

    May The Force be with you.

    • Jon, I’ve never heard Carson say anything that didnt make me wonder about his state of mind. Ive never understood how he was a brilliant brain surgeon also. Hes kind of an airhead with a microphone. The guy says some very off the wall comments. If he was a white guy he’d be run out of office and rightfully so, for making such comments.

      • The entire slavery issue has been skewed since the Civil War. It’s worth noting that it was the African tribes THEMSELVES who first captured and enslaved their brethren and then it was the ARABS who first loaded them onto ships as exported goods… but when the BRITISH finally cashed in it really took off! Slavery was commonplace in the entire known world for about 700 years BEFORE the 1860’s when here in the U.S. socio-political manipulators brilliantly used slavery as a means to divide-and-conquer our nation. By then, of course, more enlightened countries had already begun to outlaw human trafficking… but NOT as a means of gaining political power! In other nations it was primarily a moral issue – here in the U.S. is boiled down to economics with righteous indignation only playing a supportive role.

        It’s true that Ben Carson is dead-wrong to call slaves immigrants; but it’s equally incorrect to keep promoting slavery as a uniquely American heritage when for centuries before it was SOP as an outcome of tribal and formalized wars, going all the way back to the earliest “civilized” societies – the Egyptians, the ancient Greeks and Romans & all the Asian cultures. This fact alone negates the concept of reparations as well as the revisionist push to sanitize American history and fully erase all that has come before.

  2. JT,

    I am not sure what kind of argument you are making here. Not all refugees are downtrodden. Certainly not all the people wanting to come to America that are on the new 6 nation ban list are downtrodden. Many are scientists, doctors, businessmen like you and me. The rest that aren’t as gifted just want a second chance with a more inclusive nation. Just like my grandfather did during the Irish potato famine.

    Terry Nichols was also convicted along with McVeigh and there is no mention of him being non religious. In Fact, he doubled down and renewed his faith to to lighten the sentence. In fact I have been unable to find any evidence that McVeigh was agnostic. Either way, it proves that you can’t lump all whites with christianity and all Iranians, Syrians, etc with radical Islam. My Iranian friends are all agnostic. They say that many of the successful and university educated people are not as tied to their faith as their parents were. That is the same with my generation her in America. I grew up Catholic and have not been inside a church in over a decade, and that was for a wedding.

    And as far as Von Braun being a card carrying Nazi, and being welcomed into the US military, that isn’t exactly an endorsement for your argument. Would that would fly with the GOP today? Heck no. The Nazi’s were genocidal killers of millions.

    Imagine an Iranian Rocket scientist or similarly educated person that was a card carrying Taliban member. Would he be allowed to have security clearance? No, many military personnel would want him executed on the spot.

    • So what Chistian ideology was the OKC bombing carried out in the name of? Right. It wasn’t.
      “…some of them like Werner Von Braun, a part of our military intellectual capital. They fled Germany because they did not believe in Hitler’s ideology”
      Were you confused what i was replying to? The only point I was making was you make it up as you go along to fit your narrative. Perhaps you should read your own material. Or… start your own blog instead of filling George’s comment section with crap his readers aren’t interested in.

  3. weary of this. next positive move… free college education confined to trades and useful proven employment based on vocational needs. no more obscure degrees and crap classes to be funded by public money

  4. Lead is a prescious metal too.
    The SHTF time is cast and will come.
    The time is all that is up for discussion.
    All this talk of who did what to whom is just a diversion. Get your guns, your food supply, your exit route and your friends.
    He who is prepared will not fear.

  5. The civil war that has been brewing, and fostered by the left, is moving forward. The snuff job of what remains of the concept known as the USA was averted with the Trump election, but perhaps only delayed.

    I’m all for Trump’s hyper-sensitivity and sparring with the left. We the People (citizens) have been polite too long with the leftists. The modern day equivalent of an Andrew Jackson duel on twitter is fine by me.

    The collapse that is coming will unhinge the masses. I can’t help but think that the war that ensues from the next depression will be for what is left of the USA, and fought on her soil.

  6. See why the millenials don’t participate?

    It all looks like swirling garbage spread across the floor, with no broom in sight.

  7. We need to stop arguing over whether or not Obama wiretapped Trump.

    Instead we should argue why the laws that allow spying on American citizens even exist.

    End FISA Courts. End the Patriot Act. End the Freedom Act.

    • It would not surprise me in the least bit to see Trump may have this idea in mind.

      He is, after all, smart an d he has the Office now… but only until the filth in gov’t can spin up another Lee Harvey Turdwrinkle… arm’s length, o’ course.

      • Trump has no ideas. He is so far over his head. And quit calling him smart. Smart people don’t Tweet about an Obama wiretap in one tweet and how terrible Arnold Schwartznegger is in another.

        He had the country falling all over him after he acted normal in his speech to Congress. He isn’t smart enough to realize that is how to communicate. No, he has to ruin it all by tweeting nonsense.

    • I can only fully agree, but you left one out.
      Executive Order 12333 authorizes spying by the government on citizens by doing an end-run around the FISA “court” system.

  8. I honestly think we are living in the time of bread and circuses, albeit via internet mostly. There is enough crap being tossed around as fact and denied as fiction that the average person is hard pressed to even develop an intelligent opinion.

    What we are looking at, as George often reiterates in his newsletter, is the next financial mega-depression coming soon to the USA. And as we are tied at the hip with China, what happens in the 2 largest economies happens to the world.

    Everything we see today is a symptom of the economic system that brought us here, one that demands growth at the expense of everything else – and we are running out of debt to buy things and resources to make and ship them. Nobody has an operable “new system” or imagination enough to envision one. This one cannot continue, as it impoverishes too many for the benefit of a tiny few – but it has been repeated for thousands of years!

    That’s a topic that I would like to see George discuss – what system might work better as we watch this one implode? Because resetting the hamster wheel just results in boom/bust, one bubble after another, and money moving into the pockets of the insiders.

    • In what world do you reside, Jon, where Marco Rubio and John Kasich would make us more free? In what world are things less contentious when the all save the upper class are continually asked to give more and receive nothing in return? In what world, ever, has more government meant happier citizens??

      Government has become its own industry, and it is 100% fueled and fed by taxes, permits, regulations, fines and ordinances. We do not need it in its current form – which both Rubio and Kasich embrace. Business as usual is not working – hence Trump.

      I think the tweets are terribly effective – either as red herrings or simply to stir this pot of corruption that government has become. You may think it isnt ‘presidential’, but then you have come to accept that the office imbues a certain character. That ‘character’ was shared by all recent presidents, and it has netted us less and less with each election.

      For me, anything resembling change from the last 0 years is refreshing, even if it ruffles a lot of feathers.

  9. Trump wasn’t wiretapped by any U.S. Agency. It doesn’t make sense. He won. He was in control. Was Hillary wiretapped and hacked? Yes, and it caused great damage to her campaign…thank goodness. I just wish that this controversy with Trump had surfaced in July. We would be calling Rubio or Kasich President and the world would be normal and contentious free.

    Back to Trump. Let’s say that Trump did find surveillance equipment in Trump tower. My guess is that it is the Russians. They more than likely have digital files of him and his private antics. It doesn’t make a bit of sense that Obama had this done or it would have been used against him prior to the election.

    The Russians wanted Trump to be President. They have the goods on him and so far Trump has not disappointed them. This is why Trump has been so supportive of Putin and decided to deflect this weekend and blame it on Obama. This whole issue has made Trump apoplectic. This past weekend, while he was off to another consecutive weekend of golf, he got into a huge tssule with Preibus and Brannon and they were kicked off Airforce One and had to take their own flights.

    Russia can’t be trusted, ever. They have Trump hog tied and it has gotten to the point that even Bannon and Priebus, who have been in on this from the beginning have lost control of the situation. Yes, there are leaks within happening at a growing pace. But, you have to ask yourself why. I think that his internal staff has gotten so morally bent out of shape over this, that they are turning on Trump.

    I give it two more weeks. George, you asked me what I think is going to happen in mid to late March before I signed off the last time? Trump is packaging it up for you right now as we speak. Oh…and I won’t use that banned word anymore as long as your readers stop using Lib*#@&.

    • You need to watch what Mark Levin says in the YT video clip I just posted.
      Let mer see – 6 agencies and Obama operatives are smearing The Donald.

      • I put Mark Levin in the same category as Alex Jones. Neither are credible. Both are opportunistic. Have a disturbing amount loyalists who are angry. This is why both have chosen to yell at their audiences for effect. Great actors. Poor sources of information.

      • I don’t see the correlation between what Trump tweeted and what Levin just said. If as President of the United States, Obama was briefed that Trump was a security threat and was possibly being compromised by Russia, he has an obligation to investigate, regardless of Trump being in the middle of an election or not. This isn’t new information. It has been widely reported that Trump had Russian ties and that there was an ongoing investigation on this by the FBI. That is how we have gotten to this point. Levin never mentions anything nor does he convincingly state that there was any proof of wiretapping. He just mentions an investigation.
        Bottom line, Levin is just protecting his territory. As a profitable media company, Levin and Cumulus Media Networks have a lot at stake. His support of Trump and Trumps soon to be demise as a credible President, can ruin his career as well as his fellow Cumulus conservative talk show host like Herman Cain, The Savage Nation, etc.
        Levin is a businessman with a niche. More correctly, Levin is an attorney with a defense like niche. Bottom line, Levin is deflecting more than Trump. His evidence is just public records and NYT and Washington post articles. We already knew this.
        Know your politics George. Trump can declassify anything he wants. If there is any meat on these bare bones, all Trump has to do is declassify and provide proof. So far, he has not and will not, because buried in the truth is some real damaging info on Trump himself. That is why he lost his temper with his staff this weekend. His weekend tweets are a desperate measure to deflect. His executive order was moved up a few days to deflect even more.

    • JON – you must have missed the footage taken Sunday of Bannon boarding AF1 in Mir-A-Lago. As is frequently the case, they used diffent plane entrances: Trump in the front, Bannon in the back.

      Once again, you’ve been caught telling another of your lies. When will you finally learn????

      • You are right…But that is not at all what I said. The flight from DC to Florida was where they were forced to take another flight. Alternative facts are at play here. The Alternative fact is Bannon boarding AF1 in Mir-a lago. The story is him NOT boarding the flight in DC. In Trumps world of con, there is always a misunderstanding of events as they happened.

        The following is a pure fictional scenario, but is typical of how Trump would answer these questions.

        “Donald, did you talk with the Russians?”

        Answer, “No”.

        “Donald, there is a tape and video footage of you talking wit the Russians.”

        Answer. “You didn’t specify the time. You asked me in the present if I talked with the Russians. At that time, I had not. You need to be more specific with your questions.”

        That is called deflection. He is a master of it. He puts the blame back on the person asking the questions.

  10. Call me cynical or evil hearted. But with all our retired Special Ops vets out there, why hasn’t anyone just disappeared a few of the bad guys? Soros, Jarret, Lynch. Just enough to scare the TPTB? These are evil evil entities that need to go away. Maybe even the politicians?

  11. HVAC Guy –

    The backdoors are very real, which is why both China and Russia are developing their own chipsets and operating systems.

    I think the alphabet agencies are spying on everyone, in and out of government. But having the dirt on politicians, who are mostly a greedy, self-serving bunch, allows the alphabet agencies to shut down anyone who pushes too much against them or in a direction they don’t like. I think this is something that Hoover originated to conceal his sexual filth, and it worked so well that every agency began using it. In the world of internet, it is cheap and easy when you can buy data from a Google or Amazon or Facebook.

    The SINGLE BIGGEST CHANGE anyone can make to protect their privacy is to get off of Facebook, which is a direct feed into all the agencies and a monster time sink. The second thing is to get away from any Google software or service, as they sell and pipe info to the intel agencies too. The third thing is to get off of Twitter, not only because it is a waste of time, but it is a direct link to your cellular account.

    When you use these services, you are voting (with your digital wallet) for their policies and practices by giving them click revenue (from sponsors) and data revenue (they sell everything). You don’t make a damned dime, but they make out like bandits.

  12. Imagine hiring an attorney to defend you, who had to seek counseling to deal with the loss of her candidate, Hillary. Reminds me of a story I recently read about Ivy League law students who must have trigger warnings announced when their law class is discussing how to prosecute a rape case.

    This letter to the editor expresses the lunacy of the left and their not so tolerant views on anything they don’t believe. I use to vote mostly for democratic party candidates, but in the last years I noticed a distinct shift to the far left in the D party. I didn’t leave the democratic party, it left me.

    Not to mention a friend who has been distant and downright rude to me since the election because she knows I didn’t support her candidate, Hillary and explained in writing why I can’t support liberal values that are more hypocrisy filled than reason based. For instance their support of a group of refugees from a whole different religious philosophy that is contrary to liberal values like, the right to privacy as it relates to abortion, equal rights and opportunities for woman as well as gay rights/marriage. Liberals will destroy any republican espousing such counter views but a whole religion that is the antithesis of what they believe, they support 100% and welcome them with open arms (unreal). That to me is like a person of Jewish background supporting Hitler.

    • Robert your comment that compares the supporting of refugees is like a person of Jewish background supporting Hitler is so off base. America opened their arms to German refugees and even made some of them like Werner Von Braun, a part of our military intellectual capital. They fled Germany because they did not believe in Hitler’s ideology. The Syrian refugees fleeing Their country are doing so because they do not believe in the ideology of their countries politics and religion either.

      This holds true for all that flee to America. I have many Iranian friends that left their country to find a better way of life here and are flourishing as engineers, doctors, scientists etc. My cousin housed a Syrian family in Florida for a while until they found jobs and were able to support themselves. I never met them, but my cousin became friends with them. The Syrian husband is a great golfer, a prerequisite for friendship with my goofy cousin.

      There is absolutely nothing to be afraid of by being accepting. And, that means all things. Whether it be immigrants, gay rights, women’s rights, etc. I used to be the closed minded alt righter and was a miserable human being by all accounts, that included a lost marriage. Since I saw the light of acceptance, I am so much happier, healthier, re-married, and a hell of a lot richer. Opening your mind has incredible, universe rewarding benefits.

      The point is; I am a fiscal Republican with a liberal heart. The liberal side of me is tolerant. We aren’t very tolerant of those who hate however. Did some people in the name of a radical sect of Islam attack the WTC? Yes. Are all Muslims a risk to our country? Heck no. Did a couple of Christian’s bomb an Oklahoma City government building? Yes. Are all christians a risk to our country? No.

      I could go on with the crime that is committed on a daily basis in our own country that needs to be fixed first before we ban entire religions and races. Trump is partially right about Chicago, Detroit, Newark, St. Louis, DC, Baltimore, Oakland and others that consistently lead the murder lists every year.

      Your friend is not rude to you. She is just trying to open your mind to an accepting world. The universe is waiting.

      • Maybe after were through bombing their countries into submission…but while we still are, unless a few have gifts good tor our country and efforts, i’ll stick with my beliefs. As you noted, during ww2 those Germans we brought in had specialized services that benefitted our nation. The whole point of this neocon agenda us to remake the middle east into democracies and modernize islam. When i see these refugees rejecting sharia laws that support the frames of mind that many muslims support ill be more welcoming. By the way i cant stand liberals who claim to care so much about people of color as they go back to their safe lilly white neighborhoods…she is one of those liberals. At least im honest and say i live where i do because its safer in general than the crime ridden areas liberals claim to care so much about. I wish no one ill harm but keep your ass backwards religious beliefs in your countries that have been warring with each other over whose beliefs are supreme over the other for centuries. Only liberals would want to bring to America what we see happening in Europe. Ps – im tired of seeing gay men thrown off bldgs. Many Islam believers even here in America have no problem with that treatment of gays…some Christians may be prejudiced but so far ive not read about them hanging and throwing gays off of roofs. Ps – i typed this on my tiny cell so there may be some typos.

      • One more thing Jon, I voted for Obama twice so I dont need any lectures about openness. I look at the individual and like a dog know when I’ve been mistakenly stepped on versus deliberately kicked. Ill change my views when its warranted. Peace

      • McVeigh was a professed agnostic, raised Catholic, but not active in the church for years before the attack. Von Braun was a card carrying Nazi (though perhaps not politically active) who was given a ticket to the states via Paperclip _after_ the war was over, not some downtrodden scientist fleeing opression during the war. But hey, don’t let facts get in the way of your narrative while you try and edjamacate the readers here.

  13. Maybe Trump tweets too much, but then I like a Republican that will brawl with the opposition. We have too many wusses already.

  14. George,
    Glad to see you are implementing some verbage rules, sorry to see that you are forced to do so.I understand the reasoning, I for one when attacked or feel that i am attacked DO fight back, and I believe that it is NOW a requirement to do so, or we will be finished off from the evil side (hope that is acceptable verbage) we have waited too long to respond and in retrospect that has part of our demise. carry on with your great work! and I will try to obey your rules! LOL!

  15. George, perhaps you can tell me exactly when the FBI became a paragon of virtue, honesty and integrity? It’s been historically verified that for SIXTY YEARS under J. Edgar Hoover the agency has wallowed in corruption that not only placed them far above the law but entirely on the opposite side of it. From payoffs to gangsters, to blackmailing investigations of crooked politicians, to federal prosecutions dropped to avoid agency embarrassment to entire MAJOR cases falsified… it’s all there in the public record for anyone with a nose for the most foul to read for themselves [in spite of the FBI usual M.O. of redacting official documents to conceal the truth – a practice that goes all the way back to the 1920’s!]. And, yet, today we still have absolutly NO OVERSIGHT of this agency who has routinely executed illegal wiretaps to get the dirt on their adversaries – guilty, or not.

    No agency automatically becomes “clean” just by having a new Director and the FBI is certainly no exception. Just because Hoover is long gone doesn’t mean his evil protocols don’t still haunt the federal halls of justice! Congress won’t act against them because Hoover’s old tactics of gathering illicit info about elected officials is still SOP and anyone who tries to bring them down will be faced with a barrage of innuendo, claims of sexual perversion and criminal connections. The problem is that -in those instances- the charges would likely be proven true. No Senator/Congressman can attack the FBI without being willing to sacrifice their own comfy golden umbrella. Too HIGH a price to pay for newly-found INTEGRITY!

    The FBI is just another festering cesspool that needs to be drained and then DISSOLVED to be replaced with a new agency that is actually committed to promoting universal justice on the federal level.

    • Gregory,
      You are correct, I having been a small part of certain things long ago can tell you for a fact ALL of the organizations, CIA,NSA,FBI,SS,and a couple of others have decided they are above the law and do as they wish behind the scenes. and THAT is where the problem will be in trying to bring them back into a trusted group! I dn’t hink it can or will EVER happen!! i could tell you things that you only imagine in movies. BUT it is real and they have and are doing it!I fear this country is so far dwn the rocky road it is OVER! we amy never make it back to pavement!

    • I agree that Hoover the drag queen turned the FBI into a completely different kind of agency, mainly one that insured its existence by investigating and creating dossiers on anyone with power or money. In the McCarthy era, those files allowed coercion. Same with the JFK assassination – allowed control of things. The dossiers continue to be built and used – would not surprise me if they are full of pedophile info homosexual info or other blackmail material.

      I think Hollywood movies and TV series brainwashed many into believing the FBI was benevolent or even an actual law enforcement agency, when they are an intelligence gathering and SELECTIVE enforcement agency.

      There isn’t really any reason to have the FBI – the DHS serves a duplicate and broader function.

      • OILMAN2 – Thank you for your comments.
        You are entirely correct in thinking that the American public was deliberately manipulated into thinking the FBI was a trusted federal agency; Hoover himself approved any movie scripts where the FBI was mentioned and many were tossed. The old TV-series FBI was his favorite project: he made sure it reinforced the carefully-crafted and entirely phony image indeliably upon young minds – even officially sponsoring a national “Junior G-Man” Club complete with flimsy tin badges and cheaply-printed certificates bearing his signature. Perhaps, that’s his greatest crime of all ~~~ the willful corruption of a young mind is the greatest sin of all! And then, there’s that pesky matter of his perverse sexuality; it’s no surpise that close “friend” Clyde Tolson inherited the bulk of Hoover’s estate [including the home they long shared together]… and is buried just a couple of plots away from his dear “Edgar”.

        Even the books Hoover “authored” were written by specialized agents whose sole purpose was to reinforce stalwart the FBI image on each page. And they were all lies. Dillinger wasn’t killed the way they claimed, nor was Charles Arthur “Pretty Boy” Floyd. But it was thrilling copy and citizens devoured every word…. but, they were all lies.

        The FBI as we all thought we knew it never existed and it’s time to turn this particular American embarrassment into a permanent and long-overdue historical footnote.

        I just wonder who has the Brass ones to get it done? One thing is sure: it’ll rock the entire American judicial system on its very fat, corrupt ass if it ever succeeds.

        I’m thinking somewhere at the beginning of the 2nd term….

  16. Too much madness to respond to. It would be like swatting at the imaginary flies a psychotic hallucinates. As soon as one is swatted away the psychotic gives birth to another.

    The transition is complete. It’s taken a decade. One’s ability to deny a fact based reality and backfill it with a comfortable reality that comports to one’s preexisting belief system never surprises me.

  17. Good morning.
    It seems odd to me that its ok for the US government to monitor all communications of its citizens and store this information for later use, but somehow the people in government are supposed to not be monitored. Its ok if we spy on other governments but not on our own. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think its ok for people to spy on its citizens at all in our “free” country, but it happens. Why the uproar when it happens to trump.

    What about the back doors to intel /amd processors? Is that real or fake news?

    Yes I voted for trump, my choices as with every election seem to be limited to everyone gets a trophy or a rich guy.
    Thanks George for attempting to help me understand.

    -I’m just a HVAC guy.
