He Is Risen

Easter In NYC - 1956

He Is Risen Indeed.

Hillary's Transformation

As the body wears down the soul peeks through.
There is no peace in that woman.


No Way To Win A War - That's Obama's Objective

Irish has posted a Bill Whittle video that explains exactly what Obama has done to weaken the military. Rather than just eviscerating the military budget by reducing the number of divisions or sacking their equipment/repair allocations as previous liberal administrations have done, he has also attacked the morale and command structure with probably far more devastating effect.

My daughter has been in the Army for going on seven years. She was considering staying for twenty, but now is making plans to leave when her contract is up next year and attend nursing school.

To quote a fictional Gen. Wormer, "Going with an army stuffed with faggots and ass kissers is no way to win a war, son."

New Drug Scourge - Deceiving The Masses

I have been off the road for too many years; never heard of these new drugs.

It can be even stronger than crystal meth or bath salts

Its effects can be as potent as crystal meth, bath salts or cocaine. It causes people to act erratically, uncontrollably and dangerously. It’s called flakka, and it’s the new designer drug hitting the streets of Florida.

In recent weeks in Florida, this new drug has led to a man trying to break down the door to a police station, a man impaling himself while trying to scale a fence, and an armed and naked man shouting about hallucinations from a rooftop, CBS reports.
And these marijuana derivatives.
Drug dealers are peddling a new marijuana product called Wax that looks and feels like lip balm and packs a kick equivalent to smoking 15-20 joints of weed.

Police in Roswell, Ga., discovered 80 grams of Wax during a recent drug bust. Roswell Police Officer Zachary Frommer told Fox 5 in Atlanta last week that the drug ring was selling the substance to high school students.

“It’s just an extra kick,” he said. “It gets ’em higher and it gets ’em higher faster. The 15-20 joints you smoke can equal a dose of the Wax.”

The marijuana concentrate, also known as Butter and Honeycomb, has the consistency of lip balm and is easy to conceal in lip balm jars. It can be eaten or smoked, using a bong or an electronic cigarette. It is made from the oils of marijuana plants and has a high level of THC -- the chemical that gets a user high.

Wax is also easy to make, but dangerous to handle.
Shatter, Budder, Oil
As the popularity of concentrates continues to grow, so do questions about the many forms that dabs can take. In this video, we’re taking a closer look at the three main types of concentrates – Shatter, Budder and Oil.

Shatter is smooth, clear and solid. It is the purest and most potent form because it involves a second extraction process that removes fats, lipids and waxes. This can result in over 80 percent THC. However, it also means that terpenes are lost in the process.

Budder retains more of the terpenes so it tends to be more flavorful but less potent – with THC percentages in the 70s. It has a creamy consistency from being whipped.

Oil tends to be the least refined of the three. It is a gooey, sticky liquid that can be hard to handle. This form – also known as honey oil or butane hash oil – can retain a full flavor profile, however, THC levels tend to be less consistent.
Shatter appears to be the most potent form of marijuana but it is not for novices.
The semi-clear solid, usually yellow to amber-colored, is typically produced into a thin slab that is snapped, or "shattered," apart into grams.

Levels of THC in concentrates like "shatter" — wax and oil are others — can reach 70 to 90 percent, Burkhart said.
It commonly is consumed through "dabbing," in which the product is melted over a heat source and inhaled. 
Burkhart said "shatter" can deliver a high that some people might not be able to handle.

"Experienced smokers said it's like smoking three blunts (a hollowed-out cigar filled with marijuana) in three seconds," he said. "One person said it was like moonwalking."
Revelations 18:23
"...and the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee. For thy merchants were the great men of the earth, for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived."

The Greek word used for sorcery here is the same word from which we get the term "pharmaceuticals."
The word pharmacy is derived from its root word pharma which was a term used since the 15th–17th centuries. However, the original Greek roots from pharmakos imply sorcery or even poison. In addition to pharma responsibilities, the pharma offered general medical advice and a range of services that are now performed solely by other specialist practitioners, such as surgery and midwifery. The pharma (as it was referred to) often operated through a retail shop which, in addition to ingredients for medicines, sold tobacco and patent medicines. The pharmas also used many other herbs not listed. The Greek word pharmakeia (Greek: φαρμακεία) derives from pharmakon (φάρμακον), meaning "drug", "medicine" (or "poison").
Translators of the King James bible used words such as sorcery and witchcraft for pharmakeia as at that time witches and sorcerers used drugs/potions to induce hallucinations in pagan worship and in attempts to communicate with the dead/spirit world.

It is astounding how many people use mind altering substances and expect good things to happen to them. And of course there's this:
DENVER (AP) - A rash of hash oil explosions is prompting lawmakers in Colorado and Washington to consider spelling out what's allowed when it comes to making hash or concentrated marijuana at home.

Both states have seen an increase in home fires and explosions linked to amateurs making hash - concentrated marijuana that can be inhaled or eaten.

Washington's proposal would ban amateur hash cooks from using butane or other explosive gases, though safer methods would be allowed. Colorado lawmakers are considering similar limits.

Concentrated marijuana is increasingly popular because it can be mixed with food and made at home more cheaply than buying it from a commercial dispensary.

We Should Be So Lucky

It is reported that almost 150 people are dead in Kenya as the result of an Al Qaeda terrorist attack.
A security operation is over and 147 people have been killed in an attack Thursday by Al Qaeda-linked terror group Al-Shabaab on a Kenyan college, officials said.

The officials said four attackers were killed during the operation.

The siege on Garissa University also left dozens more injured and hundreds of students unaccounted for.

Hours after the assault began, Kenyan security forces cornered the gunmen in a dormitory at the school, and President Uhuru Kenyatta said in a speech to the nation that the attackers were holding hostages.

"There are many dead bodies of Christians inside the building," Al-Shabaab spokesman Sheikh Abdiasis Abu Musab told Sky News. "We are also holding many Christians alive. Fighting still goes on inside the college."
President Obama has made plans to visit Kenya soon.

Does Al Qaeda take requests?

IRS Commissioner, We Can't Abolish The IRS

The IRS commissioner on Tuesday brushed aside GOP proposals to abolish his agency, insisting the U.S. would have to have a tax collector one way or another.

“You can call them something other than the IRS if that made you feel better,” the agency’s chief, John Koskinen, said after a speech at the National Press Club.

Thug Life Transplant - His Karma Rejected It

A heart transplant costs about a million dollars. And of course this nitwit gets one because it's raaaaacist not to waste a fortune on some knucklehead. I don't feel sorry for this POS nor for his family.
Heart transplant recipient, 17, dies in high-speed police chase crash - two years after hospital nearly denied him new organ because of his bad behavior

Anthony Stokes died on Tuesday after he crashed a stolen car into a pole while fleeing from the scene of an attempted burglary in Roswell, Georgia

  • He had fired at an elderly woman after breaking into her home
  • Less than two years ago, he was given a life-saving heart transplant
  • He was initially denied the surgery because doctors said he had previously failed to take medication so would be 'non-compliant' with the treatment
  • But they changed their minds following pressure from civil rights groups and the boy's family, who said he had been stereotyped as a troubled teen
  • After the transplant, he said he was grateful for a second chance at life
A teenager who received a life-saving heart transplant two years ago after initially being denied because of his bad behavior has died following a high-speed car chase with police. 
Anthony Stokes, 17, died on Tuesday after he crashed a stolen Honda into a pole as he fled the scene of an attempted burglary at an elderly woman's home in Roswell, Georgia.
His death comes less than two years after he was given a second chance at life following a heart transplant at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported. 
The boy, from Decatur, suffered from a dilated cardiomyopathy so his heart was unable to pump enough blood. The condition can lead to irregular heartbeats, blood clots or heart failure.

Pull The IRS's Fangs

The government is pissing away money as fast as it prints it and this clown at the IRS wants more money so he can hire more thieves and bullies to collect more money. Typical government in action.
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Tuesday that service at his agency has gotten so bad that they are ignoring more than 60 percent of taxpayers’ phone calls during this tax season.

Speaking at the National Press Club, Mr. Koskinen pleaded with more money, saying a budget boost would help them staff their overwhelmed customer service lines. He also said it would help reverse staffing cuts in their compliance division, where he said the government will lose $2 billion this year in money it would otherwise have been able to collect if it had better staffing.

Congress has cut or held the agency’s funding static for several years now, with lawmakers deeming the agency recalcitrant in solving problems, and unrepentant for having targeted tea party groups for intrusive scrutiny.
If Congress would stop passing complicated revenue laws that favor special interests and deep pocket political donors and simplify the tax code, they would collect more money. I pay an accountant to do my taxes just so the IRS leaves me the hell alone.

Last year the IRS went after me for another $1,500 in taxes. My accountant looked at the letter, looked at my return, said, "They're idiots" and sent them a letter explaining that I filed exactly the same as I did the previous year and they're not making sense. The IRS backed off. I wonder how many people are intimidated by these tactics and just pay up.

The best way to kill an unrepentant, out of control agency, is not to feed it. Hopefully that is what Congress will continue to do. Starve the IRS into a mere shadow of itself.

Since 2000, the number of IRS employees has declined by 2.6%, from 97,074 to 94,516. Other than Congress, the IRS has the lowest public approval rating than any other US governmental entity.

About seven years ago the IRS wouldn't send me my federal tax over payment - a little over $1,000. I spent over six hours on the phone, two hours a day for three days, trying to get someone to give me an answer. Starve the bastards.

Obama's Homecoming

Vowing to leave no golf course unparred until he secures world peace, Barack Obama will return to Kenya for the Nairobi Tournament of Champions. The grand prize will be announced as soon as they can scare up a virgin and two goats.
Washington - Barack Obama will make a long-awaited trip to Kenya later this year, visiting his father's homeland for the first time since becoming US president six years ago, the White House said on Monday.

During the long-promised visit this July, Obama will attend a Global Entrepreneurship Summit in the east African nation, a statement said.

Obama has visited Africa four times since becoming president, but has not visited the country where he still has relatives.
He owes them money.

Raising The Dead In Venezuela

There is an afterlife; I know because people are still voting long after they stop breathing. It says so in the Book of Rahm, chapter 12, verse 9, "And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes elections..." Venezuela does not fear a zombie apocalypse, but a zombie someday running for office.
MIAMI -- While U.S. and Latin American officials say that Venezuela’s political crisis should be solved through upcoming legislative elections, recent testimony before the U.S. Senate raised many questions: It said Venezuela’s voting registry includes the names of so many dead, many states have more registered voters than people.

In March 17 testimony to the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Russ Dallen, editor in chief of the Caracas-based Latin American Herald Tribune, said Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro’s government is overseeing a voting process that almost guarantees electoral fraud in the legislative elections tentatively scheduled for September.
In the CIA Factbook, Venezuela has about 28,870,000 people of whom 20 to 21 million (about 73%) are of voting age .... maybe.

In the US, it is estimated that in 2014 there where 245,700,000 eligible voters. This is 76% of our population of 322,580,000. So the numbers of eligible voters are not far off, but the registration of said voters might be. There is no measure of the percentage of eligible US voters casting ballots in the 2014 elections because 14 states have not bothered to submit this information, or refuse to, or can't.

Read on.
Venezuela’s voting registry has been manipulated by the Venezuelan and Cuban regimes since late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez contracted Cuban companies to run Venezuela’s passport and identification agencies.

In 2003, when Venezuela’s opposition launched a campaign for a referendum to revoke Chavez’s term, Venezuela had 11.9 million registered voters. Chavez managed to delay the vote for a year and a half, which gave him time to add more than two million voters, and by 2004 Venezuela had 14 million registered voters, Dallen said.

Angered by his defeat in a 2007 referendum to change the constitution and allow him to run indefinitely, Chavez once again ramped up registration of names, and added several million new registered voters. By the time of the 2013 elections, which the government-controlled National Electoral Commission awarded to Maduro by 1.5 percent of the vote, the registry had 18.9 million eligible voters.

“So, the voting registry increased by almost 60 percent in 10 years. Quite a population boom!,” Dallen said in his prepared testimony.
The miracle of Chicago lives on.

I Can't Imagine A More Discouraging sight

AKRON, Ohio – The stars of a charity calendar are in their 80s and 90s, but that didn't stop the men and women from an assisted living facility in Ohio from showing a little skin.

Miss March, who's 88, wears a green top hat and not much else in the calendar from Pleasant Pointe Assisted Living, and the centerfolds are two women in their 90s who seem to be playing poker with strategically placed oversize cards.

Flip to February and you'll see a smiling, white-haired Dottie Rutter soaking in a bubble bath and flower petals, with chocolates and lingerie nearby.

At 87, she's the same age as the youngest of three models standing in the cover photo, where their bare feet and shoulders peek out from behind a banner they hold advertising the Barberton facility and the affiliated Pleasant View Health Care Center.

It reads: "Pleasant View, Pleasant Pointe."

Another resident in the calendar is covered only by a large exercise ball.

We Remember ....

They Remember....

One of the best quotes regarding the Obama administration is this, culled from the Daily Timewaster:
...all we have to do is scrape this administration off our shoe in 2016 and return to doing good.
The story here is about the recent reactions of Europeans to the presence of US armed forces. Have a hanky available.

These are pictures of Polish citizens mobbing a US Army unit that transitioned across Poland this week. You'd think it was VE Day in 1945.

Story here and a lot more here.

Where Do Illegals Work?

According to a recent study, illegals as a percentage comprise more of the construction, farming, service and transportation workers than native born Americans.

Europe, here we come.
Illegal immigrants in the U.S. hold a variety of jobs throughout the nation, helping it function in many ways.

Though more illegal immigrant workers hold fewer blue-collar jobs and more white-collar ones now than it did before the Great Recession, a solid majority still works in low-skilled service, construction and production companies, according to new Pew Research Center estimates.

For instance, the service industry is made up of 33 percent of illegal immigrants, compared to 17 percent of U.S.-born workers.

Story here.

More Pew research on illegals here.

And if they don't work? Judicial Watch has a few words to say about them.
[...]States where immigrant households with children have the highest welfare use rates are Arizona (62%), Texas, California and New York with 61% each and Pennsylvania(59%).The study focused on eight major welfare programs that cost the government $517 billion the year they were examined. 
They include Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for the disabled, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), a nutritional program known as Women, Infants and Children (WIC), food stamps, free/reduced school lunch, public housing and health insurance for the poor (Medicaid).Food assistance and Medicaid are the programs most commonly used by illegal immigrants, mainly on behalf of their American-born children who get automatic citizenship. 
On the other hand, legal immigrant households take advantage of every available welfare program, according to the study, which attributes it to low education level and resulting low income.The highest rate of welfare recipients come from the Dominican Republic (82 %), Mexico and Guatemala (75%) and Ecuador (70%), according to the report, which says welfare use tends to be high for both new arrivals and established residents.
