Reflecting on the Accidental Sorry Footnote to History that Obama Already Has Become

Posturing and bloviating were his only talents and his constant self-centered displays of them became very tiresome as it quickly became evident that he suffered from a surfeit of unearned and undeserved self esteem and confidence.

Requiem for Hillary . . . and Why I Nixed Her

     It wasn’t just disagreeing with her fluid and ever changing political agenda and views, the buzz about Obama’s record being on the ballot, or that she:

·        Was given to recalling with humor employment of technical legal tricks in the early days of her legal career to get a young girl’s rapist acquitted by further degrading and besmirching the victim,

·        Was a foul-mouthed and unlikeable shrew,

·        Behaved rudely and with contempt toward everyone whose support she didn’t need and viewed as beneath or subservient to her, and

·        Probably was responsible for the murderous assault on the Branch Davidian compound at Waco, Texas.

Instead, it was the basic character she exhibited by using her power (whenever she had some) to treat innocent individuals with calculated cruel brutality when it suited her purposes to do so.

       For example, there was her overseeing and directing a phalanx of private eye goons who intimidated her philandering sexual predatory husband’s victims into remaining silent when their accounts might have threatened his quest for the presidency.

       Then, upon moving into the White House, she sought to disguise the actual motive for the permissible replacement of the White House travel office with political cohorts by falsely accusing the ousted individuals of having engaged in criminal activity.  After she succeeded in actually getting those people prosecuted, a jury took about two hours to find and declare them not guilty of any crime.

       Finally, there was her standing over the coffins in which the Benghazi dead were returned to the United States and cynically relating to the mourning family members the cover story that their loved ones had been killed by a mob protesting a Muslim defaming video.  She did this to further her political goals even though she was well aware that the dead had been killed in planned, prepared, and heavily armed terrorist attack.

       In short, I voted against historically installing into the oval office an individual likely to become an American female version of Caligula in exercising the powers of that office.

An Insular Faux Universe

The feckless, flailing, and failing media that used to occupy the mainstream are replete with polling reports that the great orator continues to enjoy high favorability ratings as he nears the end of his tenure in the oval office.  Nobody seems to recall his having stated that the record of his presidency would be on the ballot in the election in which that record was repudiated.

Furthermore, those reports reflect findings by the same polling organizations that just weeks ago were forecasting that Mrs. Clinton was sure to win election to the very same office by a landslide – a predicted outcome that would have been viewed as an endorsement of the Obama presidency.

There is a reason that those reports and the polls on which they are based are so far off the mark.

Neither facts nor the actual opinions of ordinary citizens intrude into the impenetrable bubble that the leaders of our corrupt institutions, pollsters, and the media journalice have erected for themselves.  By making it politically and socially unacceptable to express views differing from their own, these elitists ensure that few citizens will tell pollsters anything the elitists disdain and don’t want to hear.  Thus, the bubble is like a hall of mirrors with only internally generated politically correct voices and images bouncing around, constantly feeding back and reinforcing the views of the bubble’s occupants. With their smug self esteem and confidence, they fully deserve one another in the insular faux universe of their own creation.

Remembering Pearl Harbor and a Far Better America

 An excellent very moving remembrance of the notable but now scarcely marked Pearl Harbor attack was published by the online City Journal on December 2.  The essay, by City Journal's managing editor, Paul Beston, can be accessed at:


To me, the notable thing about the essay is  the clear and dismaying contrast it portrays  of the America that experienced and responded to the Pearl Harbor attack and the one  we currently inhabit.  I view the following excerpt from the piece as particularly significant, chilling, and sad:

After 9/11, plans got underway nearly immediately for a memorial, and commemoration ceremonies have been held on every anniversary. By contrast, in the years immediately after Pearl Harbor, while the date was noted and some ceremonies conducted, winning the war took precedence. In 1943, FDR made this clear when he vetoed a bill declaring December 7 Armed Services Honor Day. In a message to Congress, he explained why: "Dec. 7, two years ago, is a day that is remembered in this country as one of infamy on the part of a treacherous enemy. The day itself requires no reminder, and its anniversary should rather serve to cause all the people of the nation to increase their efforts contributing to the successful prosecution of the war."

On Trump Giving Hillary a Pass

The betrayal begins . . . signaling perpetuation and institutionalization of one set of laws for ordinary citizens and the exemption therefrom of our ruling oligarchs.

The swamp won't be drained under such faux leadership.

Longest Minute Observation

D Day is accurately and deservedly recognized as The Longest Day.

Equally accurate and deserving is The Longest Minute routinely experienced by computer users watching the progress of Microsoft software updates and experiencing the passage of time after the screen shows the  time remaining to complete the process as being one minute or less than a minute.

How the Clintons and Trump Differ

Let’s be clear about what’s going on in the political arena that has those who assume a right to rule there in high dudgeon with their knickers in a bunch.   

It has become known that the often boorishly offensive Donald Trump some years ago engaged in some sadly too common macho locker room talk that was ugly, vulgar, and lewd.

But he did no one any harm.

That is far different and less significant than what for years was done by the accused rapist and serial philanderer that Hillary Clinton spent years enabling.  Her spouse did real physical, mental, and emotional harm to numerous female victims. Mrs. Clinton routinely followed up on his doing so by quelling what the Clinton crowd referred to as “bimbo eruptions.”  She did that – often with the assistance of thuggish private eye goons that she hired and supervised -- by intimidating her hubby’s victims into remaining silent, thus egregiously re-inflicting, renewing, and exacerbating the injuries initially cause by her spouse.

Why are members of those who presume a right to rule and their supporters silent about that?

Comey Outed as Scum Corrupting FBI in Government Cesspool

Mr. James Comey, Director
Federal Bureau of Investigation
J. Edgar Hoover Building
935 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W
Washington, D.C. 20535-0001
I am writing regarding your public statement in July, 2016 informing the American people that the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton was being closed without referring it to a Federal Grand Jury or the Attorney General of the U. S. for a decision whether or not to indict her. Strangely, you eloquently laid out enough of the evidence deduced from the investigation to strongly indicate there was abundant evidence uncovered during the investigation and interview of her to not only indict but to convict her in Federal Court. However, you personally re-worded and soft-pedaled the actions she took as Secretary of State describing her actions as "extremely careless” in using a personal email and un-secured server for her communications while Secretary of State. You rewrote the statute, which is not your job.
As a retired Special Agent of the FBI, I have standing to write this letter. My thirty years in law enforcement, including 22 years as a Special Agent with the FBI have given me the knowledge, expertise and experience to question and confront you for your perplexing actions, which (as you well know) were outside the normal standard operating procedure of the FBI and Federal judicial procedures. Some of the finest people in the world proudly carry the credentials of FBI Agent and you have soiled them and not allowed them to speak. But I will not be silent.
Sorry, but NO SIR, MS Clinton was not merely careless or extremely careless. She was not even negligent or grossly negligent (as the statute requires). Hillary Clinton was knowingly purposeful in her decisions and actions to set up a server under her exclusive control and possession in order to control what information was available to the American public and Congress regarding her actions as Secretary of State. Furthermore, she took those government owned communications into her personal possession after leaving her position and knowingly and willingly attempted to destroy them so her nefarious actions could never be known or used as evidence of her corrupt moral character against her.
Sir, what possessed you? Did you cave in to political pressure to unilaterally come to this decision? I fear that is the case, and Rule of Law be damned. I am embarrassed for and ashamed of you. You have set a precedent that can never be rectified….and certainly not justified. Shame on you, Sir. You ought to resign right now in disgrace for what you have done to tarnish the reputation of the finest Law Enforcement Agency in the world…. for entirely political reasons.
Normally, an investigation will be assigned to an agent, or team of agents with one being the Case agent, or the lead investigator. When the investigation is complete, an investigative report will be presented to the U.S. Attorney for the Federal District involved. It would be the U.S. Attorney who decides whether to decline prosecution for that investigation….NOT the FBI agent. But in the Clinton investigation, YOU (unilaterally) decided not to forward the investigation to the U.S. Attorney or the Attorney General of the U.S. but, instead, personally made the decision not to prosecute her or even provide the information to a Federal Grand Jury. You were wrong to take this upon yourself.
Sir, in order to indict a subject, only a preponderance of evidence , or 51% is needed for probable cause to exist. You did not think even that level of probability existed? Who do you think you are fooling? What judicial proceeding did you think you were following? Throughout my years with the FBI, I (along with my fellow agents) took great pride in conducting each investigation in an unbiased manner regardless of the subject’s position or standing in the community. All were treated equally under the law. But you, Sir, decided to allow this corrupt, evil and nasty human being to go free and unchallenged for her treasonous actions (yes, treasonous, in my opinion) which threatened the security of this nation.
Furthermore, you stopped short of investigating the Clinton Foundation as a RICO case (Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization. This is a RICO case if there ever was one. Even an untrained person can tell from the communications which were recovered that Hillary Clinton spent more time working for the Clinton Foundation while Secretary of State than on State Business. It may be argued that Hillary did not do any State business UNLESS the Clinton Foundation benefited. You decided to just let this uncomfortable truth alone without addressing it.
I will conclude with this: Following my retirement from the FBI, I volunteered for a 12 month tour of duty in Afghanistan as a Law Enforcement Professional, embedded with U.S. forces as a subject matter expert in counter-terrorism investigations. For most of that year I operated “outside the wire” patrolling with the troops, interviewing witnesses to IED incidents and gathering evidence on the bad guys. The results of my work would then be reported through secure channels to the Commanding Officer. All reports and communications were required to be transmitted via secure and encrypted devices. Occasionally my remote location in the mountains of Afghanistan made transmission impossible and I would have to fly back to Bagram Air Base in order to securely report to the Commander of the battle space.
It would have been convenient if I could have just called the Commander on my personal cell phone or written him an email on my personal laptop. But, had I done so I would have been reporting classified information via an unsecured device and it could have been compromised. These were, relative to Secretary of State communications, low level classifications of Secret. Had I ever sent even one in such a manner I would have been prosecuted and sent to Federal Prison for 20 years or so. That is how serious this violation is considered.
Now, because of you, Hillary Clinton is allowed to continue her RICO activities and is running for President of the United States, the most powerful position in the world. You have trampled on the Rule of Law and destroyed the trust of the American people in the FBI and in unbiased enforcement of the law. How do you sleep at night? It is time for you to go and work for the Clinton Foundation.

For Trump With Enthusiasm

My initial hesitation about Mr. Trump's candidacy for the presidency was due to my failure to ignore the lame stream press and its journalice that, in lockstep with our corrupt ruling class (including the Demorats and the Clinton Crime Family), spew out caricatures rather then the genuine Donald Trump.  Instead of reporting his actual words, they present what they would like people to believe he meant. 

For a look behind behind the curtain on which the elites are screening false images that comprise a derogatory portrayal of the real candidate for whom I will be voting with enthusiasm, take a look at this report.  It quotes and relies on actual statements by the candidate.

Prelude to Race War?

Before western societies became too squeamish to put down riots effectively, rioters were treated as wild beasts and shot down in the streets.  Unless and until we return to doing that or engaging in some similar and equally effective method of putting an end to urban riots, our perpetually aggrieved and disgruntled  mad dogs will use any pretext to continue and expand their uncivilized and destructive activities . . . to the point that a real race war will be the only alternative to the destruction of civilized life.

For a look at how and why the situation in Wisconsin's largest city has been spiraling out of control and what it portends, take a gander at this essay.

After doing so, one would do well to remember that civilization as we know it really is a very recent development.  It is not mankind's historic norm.  It instead is a thin and fragile veneer that suppresses the barbaric and chaotic conditions in which human beings led nasty, brutish, and short lives throughout a vast majority of the time that homo sapiens have existed on our planet.

On the Latest Hilarious E-Mail Revelations

Just business as usual for the Clinton Crime Family under the protection of the Department of Just Us. Now the U.S. is on the verge of being taken over by, and becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Corruption, Inc., which does business under the fictitious Clinton Foundation business name. It has the U.S. Department of Just Us as an in-house legal department with FBI agents operating as its foot soldiers under the direction of Capo James Comey.

Our Looming Calamity

Nothing can be more dangerous for us than having either of the two completely unsuitable, unqualified, unscrupulous, and unsavory major political party candidates in the nation's highest and most powerful office. Everything else is insignificant background chatter.

Dreaming the Impossible Dream

A wonderful fairy tale full of fanciful anecdotes about his wife was spun out to be consumed by and sway the public last night by the perjurer-in-chief, who still is confident that he can charm us into believing anything he utters. 

"Who is Donald Trump?" The better question may be "What is Donald Trump?"

The answer? A giant middle finger from average Americans to the political and media establishment. 

Some Trump supporters are like the 60s white girls who dated black guys just to annoy their parents.  But most Trump supporters have simply had it with the Demo-socialists and the "Republicans In Name Only."  They know there isn't a dime's worth of difference between Hillary Rodham and Jeb Bush, and only a few cents worth between Rodham and the other GOP candidates. 

Ben Carson is not an "establishment" candidate, but the Clinton machine would pulverize Carson ; and the somewhat rebellious Ted Cruz will (justifiably so) be tied up with natural born citizen lawsuits (as might Marco Rubio).  The Trump supporters figure they may as well have some fun tossing Molotov cocktails at Wall Street and Georgetown while they watch the nation collapse.  Besides - lightning might strike, Trump might get elected, and he might actually fix a few things.  Stranger things have happened (the nation elected an[islamo-]Marxist in 2008 and Bruce Jenner now wears designer dresses.)

Millions of conservatives are justifiably furious.  They gave the Republicans control of the House in 2010 and control of the Senate in 2014, and have seen them govern no differently than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.  Yet those same voters are supposed to trust the GOP in 2016?  Why?

Trump did not come from out of nowhere.  His candidacy was created by the last six years of Republican failures.

No reasonable person can believe that any of the establishment candidates [dems or reps] will slash federal spending, rein in the Federal Reserve, cut burdensome business regulations, reform the tax code, or eliminate useless federal departments (the Departments of Education, Housing and Urban Development, Energy, etc.).  Even Ronald Reagan was unable to eliminate the Department of Education.  (Of course, getting shot at tends to make a person less of a risk-taker.)  No reasonable person can believe that any of the nation's major problems will be solved by Rodham, Bush, and the other dishers of donkey fazoo now eagerly eating corn in Iowa and pancakes in New Hampshire .
Many Americans, and especially Trump supporters, have had it with:
·     Anyone named Bush
·     Anyone named Clinton
·     Anyone who's held political office
·     Political correctness
·     Illegal immigration
·     Massive unemployment
·     Phony "official" unemployment and inflation figures
·     Welfare waste and fraud
·     People faking disabilities to go on the dole
·     VA waiting lists
·     TSA airport groping
·     ObamaCare
·     The Federal Reserve's money-printing schemes
·     Wall Street crooks like Jon Corzine
·     Michelle Obama's vacations
·     Michelle Obama's food police
·     Barack Obama's golf
·     Barack Obama's arrogant and condescending lectures
·     Barack Obama's criticism/hatred of America
·     Valerie Jarrett
·     Holiday trees"
·     Hollywood hypocrites
·     Global warming nonsense
·     Cop killers
·     Gun confiscation threats
·     Stagnant wages
·     Boys in girls' bathrooms
·     Whiny, spoiled college students who can't even place the Civil War in the correct century

... and that's just the short list.

Trump supporters believe that no Democrat wants to address these issues, and that few Republicans have the courage to address these issues.  They certainly know that none of the establishment candidates are better than barely listening to them, and Trump is their way of saying, "Screw you, Hillary Rodham Rove Bush!"  The more the talking head political pundits insult the Trump supporters, the more supporters he gains.  (The only pundits who seem to understand what is going on are Democrats Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell and Republican John LeBoutillier.  All the others argue that the voters will eventually "come to their senses" and support an establishment candidate.)

But America does not need a tune-up at the same old garage.  It needs a new engine installed by experts - and neither Rodham nor Bush are mechanics with the skills or experience to install it.  Hillary Rodham is not a mechanic; she merely manages a garage her philandering husband abandoned.  Jeb Bush is not a mechanic; he merely inherited a garage.  Granted, Trump is also not a mechanic, but he knows where to find the best ones to work in his garage.  He won't hire his brother-in-law or someone to whom he owes a favor; he will hire someone who lives and breathes cars.

"How dare they revolt!" the "elites" are bellowing.  Well, the citizens are daring to revolt, and the RINOs had better get used to it.  "But Trump will hand the election to Clinton !"  That is what the Karl Rove-types want people to believe, just as the leftist media eagerly shoved "Maverick" McCain down GOP throats in 2008 - knowing he would lose to Obama.  But even if Trump loses and Rodham wins, she would not be dramatically different than Bush or most of his fellow candidates.  They would be nothing more than caretakers, not working to restore America 's greatness but merely presiding over the collapse of a massively in-debt nation.  A nation can perhaps survive open borders; a nation can perhaps survive a generous welfare system.  But no nation can survive both - and there is little evidence that the establishment candidates of either party understand that.  The United States cannot forever continue on the path it is on.  At some point it will be destroyed by its debt.
Yes, Trump speaks like a bull wander[ing] through a china shop, but the truth is that the borders do need to be sealed; we cannot afford to feed, house, and clothe 200,000 Syrian immigrants for decades (even if we get inordinately lucky and none of them are ISIS infiltrators or Syed Farook wannabes); the world is at war with radical Islamists; all the world's glaciers are not melting; and Rosie O'Donnell is a fat pig. 

Is Trump the perfect candidate?  Of course not.  Neither was Ronald Reagan.  But unless we close our borders and restrict immigration, all the other issues are irrelevant.  One terrorist blowing up a bridge or a tunnel could kill thousands.  One jihadist poisoning a city's water supply could kill tens of thousands.  One electromagnetic pulse attack from a single Iranian nuclear device could kill tens of millions.  Faced with those possibilities, most Americans probably don't care that Trump relied on eminent domain to grab up a final quarter acre of property for a hotel, or that he boils the blood of the Muslim Brotherhood thugs running the Council on American-Islamic Relations.  While Attorney General Loretta Lynch's greatest fear is someone giving a Muslim a dirty look, most Americans are more worried about being gunned down at a shopping mall by a crazed [islamic] lunatic who treats his prayer mat better than his three wives and who thinks 72 virgins are waiting for him in paradise.

The establishment is frightened to death that Trump will win, but not because they believe he will harm the nation.  They are afraid he will upset their taxpayer-subsidized apple carts.  While Obama threatens to veto legislation that spends too little, they worry that Trump will veto legislation that spends too much.
You can be certain that if an establishment candidate wins in November 2016 … [their] cabinet positions will be filled with the same people we've seen before.  The washed-up has-beens of the Clinton and Bush administrations will be back in charge.  The hacks from Goldman Sachs will continue to call the shots.  Whether it is Bush's Karl Rove or Clinton 's John Podesta, who makes the decisions in the White House will matter little.  

If the establishment wins, America loses.
