“Since announcing her candidacy, Hillary Clinton has taken a total of eight questions from the press. By way of comparison, in that same period, Ambassador Stevens hasn’t taken a single one.”

More Protests

Yes. There aren’t enough Protests going on in this Country.

Now people who aren’t supposed to be in this Country are going to start their own Protests

The Communist Party continues to work overtime to destroy this Nation. It’s what they do. It’s what they will always do.

Another EOTWAWKI Update

The Boy Scouts of America have banned Water Gun Fights

I guess they need to more closely monitor how Scouts win their Video Gamer Badge as well.

Just wake up in the morning, look at the national news headlines and say to yourself “This is the dumbest Bullshit ever” and do it every single day because that is one of the few acceptable responses any sane person should have left for this kind of nonsense.

“Knowing What We Know Now, Senator, Would You Say The Invasion Of Iraq Was A Mistake?”

Over the weekend Chris Wallace tried to bully Senator Marco Rubio into saying something stupid. Happily, Rubio would not take the bait:

But the premise of the question – that just about everyone buys into – is that Saddam did not have ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’.

This is a false premise.

At the time Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD’s) were defined as Nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons. Today the media has changed that meaning to include only nuclear weapons. But we know that Saddam did have chemical weapons. He killed many Kurds in his own country with them.

The left’s meme has been changed – perverted – and even Republicans are accepting it. That should stop. Candidates should challenge the meme instead of accepting it. By accepting it they have granted control of the discussion to the left. That is a losing strategy.

What Is This Noise?

From the UK Daily Mail: “What IS this strange sound from the sky? Noise heard across the globe for nearly a DECADE – but nobody has an explanation”

From Jeremiah 25:31 (King James Version):

Jeremiah 25:31King James Version (KJV)

31 A noise shall come even to the ends of the earth; for the Lord hath a controversy with the nations, he will plead with all flesh; he will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord.”

May be.

From the looks of the people in the attached video the sounds appear to be coming from above.

Islamic State Wins Big In Ramadi

You and I sent some nice goodies over there to help the Iraqi’s. Now ISIS has them all.

I wouldn't mind having a few of those crates.

I wouldn’t mind having a few of those crates.

mine sweepers

According to an ISIS Twitter account these items were among the spoils of war that they captured:

Spoils of #Ramadi battle
-40 Humvees
-10 Abrams tanks
-A battalion of Howitzer artillery
-Armored trucks & ammunition
#Iraq #ISIS #USA

But the Obama administration is telling us that this is only a brief setback. Either they are completely disconnected from the reality of the situation, they are intentionally lying to us in order to try to minimize criticism, or both.

My money is on both – and more.

Good news? “Obama Changes Policy On Military Equipment To Police Departments”

Not yet. This is as phony as everything else he does.

This man's rifle and the vehicle he is sitting atop are not among the items banned

This man’s rifle and the vehicle he is sitting atop are not among the items banned

News media across the country is heralding the decision by President Obama to order the end of the process of sending military gear to local police departments. It sounds good when you say it fast but look at what materiel he has banned the transfer of:

Fox News: In previewing the president’s trip, the White House said that effective immediately, the federal government will no longer fund or provide armored vehicles that run on a tracked system instead of wheels, weaponized aircraft or vehicles, firearms or ammunition of .50-caliber or higher, grenade launchers, bayonets or camouflage uniforms.”

According to the website of the Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services’ Weapons page they have never offered either weapons or ammunition in cal. .50 or larger. They offer M-16A2 rifles, M-14 rifles and M-1911 pistols.

Slate: “Preaching to the Choir”

Ah, well. I guess they can’t help it. Haters gotta hate.

I have to admit, though, ‘Religious tolerance’ has worked so well that Islamists have stopped killing and raping… haven’t they?

“ISIS’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, sounds like a Republican candidate for president.”

al-Baghdadi.jpg.CROP.promo-mediumlarge

The Republicans don’t just call the enemy Islamic. They criticize Clinton and Obama for preaching coexistence. At last weekend’s South Carolina Freedom Summit, they laughed off the Crusades and defended mockery of Islam. Carly Fiorina, a former Republican Senate nominee now running for president, demanded to know why Clinton has advocated “religious tolerance” and “the need to empathize with our enemies while Christians are being beheaded and crucified.”

Republicans who talk this way think they’re being tough. In reality, however, they’re aiding the enemy. They’re doing for ISIS what they did for al-Qaida: assisting its recruitment, social media, and political strategy. Rhetorically, ISIS and the GOP are in perfect harmony.”

Fox Confirms US Was Running Weapons From Benghazi To Syria

fox - weapons to syria

Hillary Clinton said she did not know about the program while testifying under oath.
Here is the transcript:

Sen. Rand Paul: My question is, is the US involved in any procuring of weapons, transfer of weapons, buying, selling anyhow transferring weapons to Turkey out of Libya?

Hillary Clinton: To Turkey? I’ll have to take that question for the record. That’s, nobody’s ever raised that with me.

Sen. Rand Paul: It’s been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that they may have weapons. And what I’d like to know is, that annex that was close by, were they involved with procuring, buying, selling, obtaining weapons and were any of these weapons being transferred to other countries? ANy countries, Turkey included?

Hillary Clinton: Well, Senator you’ll have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. And, I will see what information was available.

Sen. Rand Paul: You’re saying you don’t know?

Hillary Clinton: I do not know. I don’t have any information on that.”

She lied under oath. It is not the first time. She is unfit to hold any office in the country.

“What Stephanopoulis Still Hasn’t Disclosed”

staphanopolis

Yeah. He told us, under duress, that he has donated like $75 large to the Clinton Crime Cartel. But he hasn’t told us ‘The Rest Of The Story’. But Peter Schweitzer, the man who wrote ‘Clinton Cash’ is willing to tell us:

In his on air apology for this ethical mess, Stephanopoulos did not disclose that in 2006 he was a featured attendee and panel moderator at the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI).

He did not disclose that in 2007, he was a featured attendee at the CGI annual meeting, a gathering also attended by several individuals I report on in Clinton Cash, including mega Clinton Foundation donors Lucas Lundin, Frank Giustra, Frank Holmes, and Carlos Slim — individuals whose involvement with the Clintons I assumed he had invited me on his program to discuss.

Stephanopoulos did not disclose that he was a 2008 panelist at the CGI annual meeting which, once again, featured individuals I report on in the book, such as billionaire Clinton Foundation foreign donor Denis O’Brien.

ABC’s most visible news employee did not disclose that in 2009, he served as a panel moderator at CGI’s annual meeting, nor did he disclose that in 2010 and 2011, he was an official CGI member.

Stephanopoulos did not disclose that in 2013 and 2014, he and Chelsea Clinton served as CGI contest judges for awards, in part, underwritten by Laureate International Universities — a for-profit education company I report on in the book. Bill Clinton was on its payroll until his recent resignation.”

Stephanopoulis gave not just money but his time – lots of it – and every shred of his integrity to the Clinton Cartel.

Hell On Earth

35 years ago today….

I just turned 7 years old when the eruption happened living 200 miles north of St Helens. Trebor Snoyl heard the eruption. It was more than 500 times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. It triggered the largest landslide in recorded history. The blast caused St. Helens to lose over 1,300 feet in elevation, approximately 15% of it’s original height. The blast killed everything within 230 square miles, including 4 billion feet of timber, 11 million animals and 57 people….including legendary curmudgeon and folk hero Harry R Truman.

In spite of several months of warnings that St Helens could erupt anytime, Harry said screw it. He decided to stay. He and his 16 cats are now covered by several hundred feet of ash and debris.

“Other Religions Are Not Perfect Either”

Ayaan Hirsi Ali is interviewed by Canadian broadcaster Wendy Mesley. Mesley is obviously a leftist who equates the permanent lessons of violence taught to Muslims thought the Koran to the occasional instances of violence that have been perpetrated in the past by Jews and Christians. She has no sense of proportion and doesn’t want one.

Mesley tries to steer the conversation into areas that bring her comfort but Ali is having none of it. Ali reacts with a tired patience.

The difference in the demeanor of the two women is striking. One is warning the west about coming acts of violence and the other refuses to hear the warning and considers Ali a hateful trouble maker.

This video illustrates perfectly the divide that exists between those who fear for the future of the west and those who find that warning distasteful and want to destroy both that message and the messenger.

A Lesson In How To Inflame The Situation

Caution: Language warning.

A black man, apparently drunk or high, is filmed making threats against another person. A white man takes exception and physically attacks him. Other black men react and the threats start coming, “You should bow to me… You’ll all be dead by the end of the year.”

Both sides seem bent on making the confrontation worse. If this continues there will be bloodshed.

If you live in a city, get out as fast as you can. This kind of thing will explode soon.

Vile Pigs At MSNBC Delight In Injury To Cop

WRBL

The spokesperson tweeted this:

msnbc dragging cop

It was later removed – but nothing ever goes away once it goes up on the internet.

A cop gets dragged down the street and MSNBC thinks it’s a joke.

MSNBC sunk to a new low on Friday with the posting of a video to MSNBC’s Facebook page that mocks police over a criminal dragging a police officer by a car as he attempted to flee from the officer. MSNBC also promoted the video on its Twitter account.

The headline used by MSNBC: “Does it count as a police chase if you take the cop along for the ride?”

The MSNBC video uses security and police body-camera footage from an incident on May 9 in Savannah, Georgia. The video was released by police on Wednesday and hit the national media the next day.

MSNBC added circus clown music to the video and the caption “Does it count as a police chase if you take the cop along for the ride?”

The Saturday Night Special

ihf_2268_22684753

It has been at least Twenty Five Years since I watched the documentary that follows. Somewhere in my vast collection of unlabeled VHS tapes from the late 80s and early 90s I have this recorded. I am almost certain that I watched it on the A&E Channel. Back then A&E was the cutting edge of new cable TV super channels. There was no Discovery Channel nor a History Channel. A&E hosted a wide variety of historical documentaries back then, most of which they didn’t produce. They weren’t all that big yet. They were good at re-mastering old black and white documentaries and adding their own host to make the presentation to the audience. It was good stuff.

“Yes, The Left IS that Stupid”

This article is from the Gunslinger’s Journal. The writer makes a good point – one that I agree with.

Has it occurred to the jack-rabbits who want to take down The West so they can share in the “goodies” The West has “hoarded”, that if they take down The West, there won’t BE any goodies to share?”

He’s talking about the left. They seem to think that western society is made up of greedy people who have succeeded through a combination of luck and the victimization of the rest of the people.

There is something unusual about countries like the United States. Until now its people have been free to pursue their own self interest. That resulted in successful farms, businesses, and a lot of invention. All the peole in the country have benefited from the wealth they created – both in the case of plenty of food and in the development of and distribution of labor-saving devices. Even in the poorest neighborhoods people have enough to eat and own things like TV sets, automobiles, and cell phones.

The left wants to restrict the freedom to innovate so they can redistribute the wealth to those who have less. What they don’t understand is that by destroying the wealth makers the wealth will go away. There won’t be anything to redistribute. This has happened before in other countries and the result is always the same.

Historically, the closest thing to the current spread of civilization, culture, and technology, was the Roman Empire. It was the high water mark of the ancient world. And when the Empire failed, the world plunged into the Dark Ages…from which it struggled for centuries to emerge.

When Rome fell, it’s wealth, luxury and resources were not shared by the world. They disappeared. They disappeared because it took the organization that was the Empire to produce them.”

And more recently Rhodesia was a successful country on the African continent. The successful were thrown out, the country was renamed Zimbabwe, and:

A more modern example of this is the death of Rhodesia. It was a rich, prosperous, well-fed, functional and successful country. But the idea grew that the white elite, whose farmlands were the backbone of Rhodesian wealth, had “stolen” them from “the People”, and that they should be “liberated” from these oppressors, and returned to the people so they could share in the wealth they produced.

But, when the lands were “liberated” and given to “the people”, they ceased to be successful, profitable or productive farms. What the ignorant “liberators” failed to understand is that there was no inherent wealth in the farmland—nor a mine or well. It requires people with the knowledge, skill, the ambition and motivation, the technology and the culture to exploit its potential.”

Not mentioned but equally a problem for Zimbabwe was the devaluation of their money:

zimbabwe money01

zimbabwe money02

There are many Americans who understand the problem. You can not destroy a society that is working, creating better lives for its citizens without also destroying the advantages those people enjoy.

This is a basic fact of life but the left isn’t interested in the nation’s people prospering. They are only interested in controlling every aspect of their lives. They really are that stupid.

Should The West fail, the world will not suddenly share in its supposedly hoarded wealth. The wealth will fail insofar as The West does. And nothing will be left for anyone but the wisp of smoke and memory.

And a New Dark Age.”

“US COMMANDOS KILL SENIOR IS COMMANDER IN SYRIA RAID”

They couldn’t have been wearing boots. The President has assured us that there will be no boots on the ground.

BEIRUT (AP) — U.S. commandos mounted a rare raid into eastern Syria overnight, killing a senior Islamic State commander in a firefight, capturing his wife and rescuing a Yazidi woman held as a slave, the Pentagon said Saturday.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced the raid, identifying the militant as Abu Sayyaf. He said no U.S. forces were killed or injured in the operation.

A U.S.-led coalition has been striking Islamic State militants in Syria since last year, but this is only the second time troops have carried out a ground raid. A previous operation last summer was aimed at rescuing Americans held hostage by the group, but failed to recover any.”
