My mom died yesterday morning. We were expecting this as she has been in hospice care for the last six weeks. We all feel that she waited until her granddaughter's wedding was over on Saturday and slipped her mortal coil early Monday morning. I had a feeling that when we left MD last month that it would be the last time I that I would see her.

I am Mom's executor and have to leave for MD. My wife is sick today or else we'd be on the road right now. Posting will be pretty sparse for another bit.

Mom and Dad are both gone now. This is a picture of happier days.

Five Wives And $350 Million Light


These Wives Won't last!
Heavily discounted used Saudi wives!
Less than 40 years old, low maintenance, beaten lightly, spare burkas included.

SHARM EL SHEIKH, EGYPT | A Saudi prince lost 1.350 Billion Riyals ($359 Million) in six hours as well as five of his nine wives while playing poker at the casino.

Prince Majed bin Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud is well-known around the world for both his drug and gambling habits, but his latest betting frenzy is quite exceptional even for him.

Spending the week at the renowned Sinai Grand Casino, the Prince spent six hours at the “unlimited stakes” poker table and had an incredible losing streak.

In one evening, he lost hundreds of millions of dollars and was even forced to give up five of his spouses to cover part of his debt.

According to the director of the casino, Ali Shamoon, the prince pawned his wives in exchange for $25M in credit and left them there after he lost.

Hillary Employee Indicted

This is almost two months old.
Funny how it didn't get a lot of press, no?
Former Hillary Clinton Employee Arrested On Treason Charges

Candace Marie Claiborne has become the first Clinton-era State Department employee indicted on treason charges, after a federal grand jury indicted her for conspiring to defraud the U.S. government, concealing contact with foreign spies, obstructing an official proceeding, and making false statements to the FBI.

Claiborne, a veteran State Department employee who possessed a Top Secret security clearance, concealed her extensive contacts with Chinese intelligence agents, who for years lavished her with thousands of dollars in gifts as part of a pay-for-play scheme, according to a Department of Justice press release.

In addition to cash payments, Chinese spies provided Claiborne with vacations, an apartment, Apple electronics, and tuition to a Chinese fashion school, according to the indictment. Suggesting she learned tricks from Hillary Clinton, her former boss, Claiborne allegedly told co-conspirators to delete all emails and evidence after getting caught.

The bill of charges contains numerous felonies and Claiborne, 60, is facing spending the rest of her life behind bars, as prosecutors warn she is “the first of many” corrupt Clinton-era State Department employees that will be bought to justice by a reinvigorated DOJ.


Still Winning

This is too rich. Republican candidate for Congress gets arrested for assaulting an aggressive reporter, loses the support of three newspapers and still cleans the clock of his Democrat opponent in a Montana special election.

GOP candidate wins Montana House election after being charged with assault

Republican multimillionaire Greg Gianforte won Montana's only U.S. House seat on Thursday despite being charged a day earlier with assault after witnesses said he grabbed a reporter by the neck and threw him to the ground.

Gianforte, a technology entrepreneur, defeated Democrat Rob Quist to continue the GOP's two-decade stronghold on the congressional seat. Democrats had hoped Quist, a musician and first-time candidate, could have capitalized on a wave of activism following President Donald Trump's election.

The Brits Are Furious

And I don't blame them. Draconian measures are needed to stop the leaks.

From Breitbart:
The world’s closest intelligence sharing arrangement is in jeopardy after key details and photographs from the Manchester bombing were apparently leaked by United States’s law enforcement sources to domestic journalists, leaving Manchester Police and the British government — who are collecting and analysing the finds — “furious”.
The United Kingdom has now stopped passing intelligence gathered as part of the investigation into the Manchester bombing to the United States according to claims made by the British state broadcaster BBC.

While British police had discovered the identity of Salman Abedi, the suicide bomber who killed 22 in Manchester on Monday, the name was withheld from the media initially for operational reasons. Yet less than 24 hours after the attack took place, American newspapers citing “government sources” were able to name the attacker.

[...]The nature and speed of the leaks by these U.S. officials have caused “disbelief and astonishment” in the British government.

Disgraced Former DNC Head Threatens DC Police

Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (FL-D) threatened "consequences" if the DC police did not return a laptop that was recovered by Capitol Police after it disappeared while being sought in an investigation.

Mysteriously enough, the laptop was used by a Pakistani IT expert who is suspected of massive data breaches while hired to work in her office.

From the Daily Caller:
The Florida lawmaker used her position on the committee that sets the police force’s budget to press its chief to relinquish the piece of evidence Thursday, in what could be considered using her authority to attempt to interfere with a criminal investigation.

The Capitol Police and outside agencies are pursuing Imran Awan, who has run technology for the Florida lawmaker since 2005 and was banned from the House network in February on suspicion of data breaches and theft.

“My understanding is the the Capitol Police is not able to confiscate Members’ equipment when the Member is not under investigation,” Wasserman Schultz said in the annual police budget hearing of the House Committee On Appropriations’ Legislative Branch Subcommittee.
Imran Awan and his two brothers are suspects in one of the most serious security breaches in the history of Congress. Obviously Wasserman-Schultz has more than a passing interest in squelching this investigation. More here.

Pasties, Vamps And Sleaze

Pop icon Cher left little to the imagination while performing some of her biggest hits at Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards, the singer’s first awards show concert in 15 years.

The 71-year-old icon performed her smash hits “Believe” and “If I Could Turn Back Time” Sunday night before accepting the ceremony’s Icon Award for her decades-long career in the music industry.

The Grammy- and Oscar-winner danced on stage wearing a silver diamante dress, with her chest covered up by heart-shaped nipple pasties. The sparkling dress, which consisted of multiple hanging diamond strips, barely covered the singers chest and groin area.
It's amazing what a little botox and a lot of cocaine can do.

Rotten To The Core

"She is a completely hollow woman," Camille Paglia said, reflecting on Hillary Clinton's disastrous bid for the presidency six months after the former secretary of state fell to Donald Trump.

In an interview with the Washington Examiner on Tuesday, Paglia, who voted for Jill Stein in November, recalled red flags from the earliest days of Clinton's candidacy, pointing to her dependence upon artificial policy positions carefully manufactured in Brooklyn with the help of polls and focus groups.

"Hillary, when she first declared that she was a candidate," the bestselling author explained, "they asked her about her policies... and she refused to answer."

"They had to poll for her to find out what her policies were," said Paglia, delineating Clinton's failures with a detectable air of exasperation. "She was waiting for all her people to sift through polling data. They had to poll for her to find out what her policies were."

Notre Lame

CBS News:
Dozens of graduates and family members silently stood and walked out Sunday as Vice President Mike Pence began his address at Notre Dame's commencement ceremony.

Pence, the former governor of Indiana, was invited to speak after Notre Dame students and faculty protested the prospect of President Donald Trump being invited to become the seventh U.S. president to give the commencement address.
Poor widdle snowflakes all weewee'd up.

NAACP Looking For Revelance

The NAACP realizes that it has lost its mojo.
They will seek a new CEO afer their current President, Cornell W. Brooks, completes his three year term. The NY Post reports:
“We believe as an organization, we need to retool to become better advocates, better at educating the public, better at involving them,” Derrick Johnson, vice chairman of the NAACP board of directors, said in a conference call announcing the change.

Johnson said the group would embark on a national “listening tour” as part of its re-branding. That kind of tour, which is a common strategy among politicians as they seek to gain public support, has never been done in the NAACP’s 108-year history, Johnson said.
Their "listening tour" better pay heed to their 75% illegitimacy race and the fact that although they only comprise 13% of the US population they commit over half the murders in the US. Is it poverty? Racism?  Sociologists are divided and there is no clear verdict, but business as usual means nothing changes. Educating the public does not stop murders and it gives the appearance that NAACP officials are trying to shore up support and perhaps lagging donations.

It's not social problems or financial woes that plague us, it's moral issues.

Voter Fraud: It Is A Thing

Initial study of 28 states reveals 7.2 million duplicate voter registrations.

This study does not include the dead (unless they have dual registrations) and the four most populous states - California (39 million), Texas (27 million), Florida and New York (20+ million each) - are also not in the study. These four states alone comprise about a third of the US population (106 million).

More than 7 million voter registrations appear to be registered in two states simultaneously, according to data obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

The new voter data was gathered from the Kansas-run interstate voter registration crosscheck program, which is used to identify "possible duplicate registrations among states."

The program began in December 2005 and conducted its first crosscheck in 2006. It is administered by the office of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who was tapped recently to help lead President Trump's voter fraud commission.

The newest data is from crosschecks of voter registrations across 28 states that participate in the program. At least 7.2 million registrations appeared in two states at once, according to the data.

Georgia (660,708), North Carolina (561,811), and Illinois (542,065) lead the 28 states studied in potential duplicated voter registrations across state lines.

The study shows that more than 916,000 people appear to be registered multiple times within their state of residence. North Carolina accounts for 90 percent of potential intrastate duplicates.
And of course the dems will scream racism.

Hillary Practices Escape And Evasion

At all costs Hillary did not want to hug Donald Trump during the deabtes. This video was a maneuver that Hillary perfected on her wedding night.

If this failed to deter Trump, Hillary was given a switchblade...
Hillary Clinton's former senior advisor Philippe Reines on Friday tweeted out a video of the former first lady practicing how to avoid hugging President Donald Trump during debate prep in late September, 2016.

Reines tweeted a video of his "favorite moment from debate prep," featuring Hillary Clinton and a Trump stand-in. Clinton was practicing her technique of greeting her opponent before a debate.



Fired FBI Director Comey has been given a new nickname.
WASHINGTON — President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved “great pressure” on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting.

“I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job,” Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.”

Mr. Trump added, “I’m not under investigation.”
There was "Crooked Hillary" and now here's "Nut Job Comey."

Teeth, Meet Ass

The Conservative Treehouse warns the Dems to beware of what they wish for, an independent Special Counsel.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at the Justice Department has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to justice to oversee the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
It may take a while for the more rabid Democrats to have the notion beat into their brains, but others already have an inkling of what may be coming down the pike.
This opens up an independent investigative path of: 
♦The DNC leaking (Seth Rich), and 
♦The impetus of the “Russian Dossier“, and 
♦The Obama White House “surveillance and leaking” (Susan Rice/Evelyn Farkas), all the way to 
♦John Podesta, the Hillary Clinton campaign, and the Obama White House.
The traitorous dems are about to find out what Boomerang Karma is all about. And I hope it bites them right in the ass.

Putin Makes A Point

Russia's President Vladimir Putin offered to provide a transcript of his Foreign Minister's visit to the White House in order to settle the recent fake news controversy regarding the release of classified intelligence by President Trump.
SOCHI, Russia, May 17 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump had not passed any secrets onto Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov during a meeting in Washington last week and that he could prove it.

Speaking at a news conference alongside Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, Putin quipped that Lavrov had not passed what he said were the non-existent secrets onto him either.

Putin said Russia was ready to hand a transcript of Trump's meeting with Lavrov over to U.S. lawmakers if that would help reassure them.

Two U.S. officials said on Monday that Trump had disclosed highly classified information to Lavrov about a planned Islamic State operation, plunging the White House into another controversy just months into Trump's short tenure in office.
Putin later remarked that the two American officials were "full of shitsky" and that, in Mother Russia, "Leakers" could only be a mispronunciation of a California basketball team.



Zero Hedge quotes Putin as saying:
"We are seeing in the US a developing political schizophrenia," Putin said quoted by RT. "There is no other way I can explain the accusations against the acting US president that he gave away some secrets to Lavrov" and added that "it's hard to imagine what else can these people who generate such nonsense and rubbish can dream up next," said Putin.

"What surprises me is that they are shaking up the domestic political situation using anti-Russian slogans. Either they don't understand the damage they're doing to their own country, in which case they are simply stupid, or they understand everything, in which case they are dangerous and corrupt."

"Anyway, this is a US matter, and we don't want and don't plan to interfere," the Russian president said.

It's On

It is on. A full blown assault on the Office of the President. Disgraced ex-FBI Director James Comey and his accomplices are doing their utmost to bring down a sitting President while Hillary and Soros cackle and plot on the sidelines.

This must not be allowed to stand. The Democrats are creating a Constitutional crisis out of smoke and mirrors and the liberal media is supplying the smoke and mirrors. This is worse than the Gulf of Tonkin incident that immersed the US in a war that killed 52,000 GI's. That action was directed at the communists. Today's traitors are targeting us.

This is an attack on the very fabric that holds our nation together, that keeps us in civil harmony and away from each others throats. Once that gives, God help us.

The Democrats are pissing off the wrong people. We are not snot nosed college kids. This will not end well.

The liberal media is on a war footing and we need to know what is, and more importantly, what is not happening. The Federalist has published a guide on how to interpret the war news...

  1. In the immediate aftermath, news outlets will get it wrong.
  2. Don’t trust anonymous sources. If democracy dies in darkness, anonymity is not exactly transparent or accountable. Unless someone is willing to to put his or her name with a leak, be on guard. Pay attention to how well the reporters characterize the motivations of the anonymous leaker. All leakers have motivation. Does the paper seem to have a grasp on how the motivation affects the veracity of the leak?
  3. If someone is leaking national security information in order to support the claim of a national security violation, be on guard.
  4. If someone is claiming a serious national security crisis but not willing to go public with the claim and resign in protest of same, be on guard.
  5. Compare sources willing to put their name and reputation on the line.
  6. Big anti-Trump news brings out the fakers.
  7. Pay attention to the language that the media uses. Is a story about something unimportant being written in such a way as to make it seem more important?
  8. Beware confirmation bias. Everyone has the tendency to interpret new evidence as confirmation of one’s existing beliefs or theories. Be on guard that you don’t accept critical or exonerating evidence to match your political preferences.
  9. Pay attention to how quickly and fully editors and reporters correct stories based on false information from anonymous sources. If they don’t correct at all, it’s an indication of a lack of respect.

Awwww, They Gave Him A Bicycle Rack

Family's private investigator: There is evidence Seth Rich had contact with WikiLeaks prior to death 

WASHINGTON - It has been almost a year since Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was murdered in the nation's capital. There have been no solid answers about why he was killed until now.

Rich was shot and killed last July in Northwest D.C and police have suggested the killing in the District's Bloomingdale neighborhood was a botched robbery. However, online conspiracy theories have tied the murder to Rich's work at the DNC.

Just two months shy of the one-year anniversary of Rich's death, FOX 5 has learned there is new information that could prove these theorists right.

Rod Wheeler, a private investigator hired by the Rich family, suggests there is tangible evidence on Rich's laptop that confirms he was communicating with WikiLeaks prior to his death.

Now, questions have been raised on why D.C. police, the lead agency on this murder investigation for the past ten months, have insisted this was a robbery gone bad when there appears to be no evidence to suggest that.

Happy Mother's Day

My mom went into hospice care last week so this is a bittersweet day for us. She's 89 and still feisty as all get out, but she'll be gone soon.

I thank God that He placed her as my mom. She had a hard row to hoe as a young woman with four kids. And I thank God for my wife who has had such an impact on me, our daughters and step daughter.

Think of the women that God has placed in your life and thank Him for them; be sure to include the ones you wish you never crossed paths with. Even they taught you something.

Peace In Palestine? Don't Believe It, Not For A Moment

From the Jerusalem Post:
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has crossed the Rubicon and voiced “unprecedented” readiness to reach a peace deal with Israel, sources close to the efforts to renew talks between Israel and the Palestinians have told The Jerusalem Post.

Abbas, according to the sources, made this clear to President Donald Trump during their meeting at the White House last week. The president plans to use his trip to Israel later this month to receive assurances from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he, too, is committed to a peace agreement.

Since his meeting with Trump last week, Abbas has changed his rhetoric, issuing a number of statements meant to reflect flexibility on previous demands. He has, for example, said that he would renew the talks under Trump’s auspices without preconditions. In the past, he had said he would not negotiate with Netanyahu without a freeze to settlement construction.
Hmmmm. Remember the Oslo Accords?
The Oslo Accords are a set of agreements between the government of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO): the Oslo I Accord, signed in Washington, D.C., in 1993 and the Oslo II Accord, signed in Taba in 1995.
That went over well, dinnit? And now another "deal?"
Something will happen, either by chance or staged, that will put a kibosh on the new deal.

This is just a Muslim tactic to ensure that the annual $500 million or so that the US gives the Palestinian Authority every year is undisturbed as Trump has made it clear he will not put up with the Muslim zealots' nonsense. Since the Oslo Accords were signed in 1995, the US has given them over $5 billion in aid (see below). The US is the world's most generous donor to these people.

The Book of Revelations tells us that this is not going to end until Christ Himself settles the matter. Then and only then will there be peace for a while.

Specialist in Middle Eastern Affairs
December 16, 2016
Since the establishment of limited Palestinian self-rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the mid-1990s, the U.S. government has committed more than $5 billion in bilateral economic and non-lethal security assistance to the Palestinians, who are among the world’s largest per capita recipients of international foreign aid. Successive Administrations have requested aid for the Palestinians in apparent support of (1) promoting the prevention or mitigation of terrorism against Israel; (2) fostering stability, prosperity, and self-governance in the West Bank that may aid Israeli-Palestinian diplomatic prospects; and (3) meeting humanitarian needs. The long-term utility of U.S. aid in encouraging regional stability and Palestinian economic and political self sufficiency might depend to some extent on progress toward a political solution that addresses Palestinian national aspirations and Israeli security demands.
Oh bullshit. They stole the money.

Will Somebody, Anybody, Please Indict This Chick?

Hillary Rodham Clinton desperately needs to be indicted, tried, convicted and put away.

If there is a single action that could resurrect Americans' belief in our criminal justice system, that would be it.

Follow me on this. Very little has changed w/r/t resources allocated to our southern border security, yet just the threat of increased enforcement and a border fence by Trump plus the unleashing of current border patrol agents has resulted in a 70% decrease in illegal aliens so far this year.

What does this say to us? More importantly, what does it say to those who break our laws?

This is what it says; the party's over, the buffet table has been closed, it's time to pay the piper.

The lax, almost non-existent, border enforcement policies inflicted upon us by the Obama administration was not an accident. As half of Central America decided to move north, radical Muslims also discovered that running amok was a low risk endeavor made profitable by the US State Department.

The DoJ also refused to prosecute many white collar (fraud) cases. This action encouraged many banks and financial agents to steal to their hearts content as larceny also became low risk. Between the GW Bush and Obama administrations, not a single fraudulent banker went to prison for their part in nearly destroying the American economy.

And now there is more evidence that Hillary Clinton is one of the most corrupt national politicians in our nation's history. As SecState not only did she violate scores of national security laws, she also pressured the Prime Minister of Bangladesh to keep a Clinton Foundation donor in an official position.
While secretary of state, Hillary Clinton made a personal call to pressure Bangladesh’s prime minister to aid a donor to her husband’s charitable foundation despite federal ethics laws that require government officials to recuse themselves from matters that could impact their spouse’s business.

The Office of Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina confirmed to Circa that Mrs. Clinton called her office in March 2011 to demand that Dr. Muhammed Yunus, a 2006 Nobel Peace prize winner, be restored to his role as chairman of the country’s most famous microcredit bank, Grameen Bank.
The bank’s nonprofit Grameen America, which Yunus chairs, has given between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Global Initiative. Grameen Research, which is chaired by Yunus, has donated between $25,000 and $50,000, according to the Clinton Foundation. Source
Hillary Clinton is the perfect target to kick off an anti-corruption campaign. She is incredibly high profile, she's as dishonest as the day is long, and her imprisonment will drive the Democrats positively ape shit. The poo flinging will be epic.

The prosecution and imprisonment of Hillary, or both of the Clintons for that matter, would send a strong statement to those who would abuse the political system for their own gain, would go a long way towards restoring America's trust in government and would provide endless entertainment as the Democrats consume themselves.

Make America Great Again.
Indict Hillary Clinton!

No Constitutional Crisis

Let's boldly re-enter yesteryear as a sitting President fires an FBI Director. The date is July 19, 1993, and the President is William J. Clinton.

There was no Constitutional crisis.
The firing occurred during the FBI's investigation of Clinton's involvement in Whitewater, the White House Travel Office scandal and Vince Foster's death (July 1993).
There was no panicky media reaction and no one got unhinged.
President Clinton fired FBI Director William S. Sessions yesterday, ending a six-month drama during which the former federal judge refused repeated requests from administration officials to resign.

Clinton telephoned Sessions yesterday afternoon to inform him that he had been fired and then called back several minutes later to remind him that the dismissal was "effective immediately." The president told reporters afterwards that he acted after Attorney General Janet Reno "reported to me in no uncertain terms that he {Sessions} can no longer effectively lead the bureau and law enforcement community" and that he agreed with that assessment.

Clinton, who said it was time to end "the turmoil now in the bureau" and "give the crime fighters the leadership they deserve," is expected to announce today that he has selected federal Judge Louis J. Freeh of Manhattan, a 43-year-old former FBI agent and federal prosecutor, to head the agency. Clinton interviewed Freeh at the White House for two hours on Friday night, press secretary Dee Dee Myers said.

Sessions was the first FBI Director to be fired in the history of that agency.
The NY Post had a great column on Comey's termination.

The FBI Is Getting A New Boss

Comey's gone. The Swamp just went down a few inches.

And not only that; between Loretta Lynch and James Comey the FBI has't had a great track record.

Here are 10 of Comey's biggest embarrassments at the FBI:

Take This Iron And Shove It

There are those who love golf and those who don't.
I am in the latter group.
Both my father and my FIL loved to watch golf on television.
Me? I'd rather watch acne cream skin care commercials.
Who wins the Masters? Who cares when zits are a concern?

But golf does on occasion provide some entertainment.
Like this NY Post piece:
Masters champ now sucks so much that caddie fired himself

Danny Willett’s downward spiral since his Masters triumph has taken another bitter twist: He has been fired by his caddie.

Jonathan Smart, who was on Willett’s bag when he shocked the golfing world with his Augusta triumph 13 months ago, walked out on the golfer after a blazing tournament fight.

Willett accused Smart of giving him a bad yardage at the RBC Heritage event in South Carolina last month, the week after he missed the cut trying to defend his Masters title.
Now if Willett was a Marine sniper in Afghanistan I could understand.

In The News

A contract has been awarded to United Airlines to remove Syrian President Assad from office.
WASHINGTON — The Pentagon announced Tuesday it had awarded a sole-source contract to United Airlines for work related to the forcible removal of President Bashar al-Assad from Syria.

The contract, worth $2.1 billion, tasks the airline company with locating Assad, grabbing him from his seat in the presidential palace, and “dragging him out of Damascus by his arms.” The contract also notes that Assad should be “asked several times, politely” to give up his seat of power, though if he refuses, United workers should bloody his nose up a bit, according to the posting at FedBizOpps.

[...]United will be sending one of its aircraft to Damascus sometime next week, where it will land and carry out the plan called for in the contract.

It’s not yet clear whether United employees will actually carry out the forcible removal of Assad. One source said it’s possible the company may subcontract that portion of the work requirement to the Chicago Police Department, Wells Fargo, or Comcast.
Talks are underway between the Department of Defense and United Airlines exploring the possibility to use United personnel to remove a certain troublesome North Korean passenger.

Hill Without Bill: The Parallax View

A proposed novel is in the works that will tell the world how Hillary may have prospered if she had not married Bill Clinton. This photograph shows the ex-FLOTUS in her prime.
NEW YORK (AP) — A best-selling novelist is imagining how Hillary Clinton’s life might have turned out had she never married Bill Clinton.

Random House announced Monday that Curtis Sittenfeld will tell the story from the point of view of Hillary Rodham. In real life, the former first lady did turn down Bill Clinton’s marriage proposals at first before agreeing to marry. In the novel, not yet titled, she turns down Clinton once and for all, then goes on with her life.
The most widely held prognostications state that by 1981 she would be splayed across the hood of a Buick Riviera being ravished by Rosie O'Donnell.

Merritt turned herself in to California authorities to answer the 15-count felony charges brought against her by the State of California for her undercover work in exposing Planned Parenthood’s illegal sale of aborted baby body parts.

[...]Rather than investigating and prosecuting Planned Parenthood, which donated thousands of dollars to his political campaigns, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed charges against Merritt, claiming that her undercover video recordings violated California law. To date, no other citizen journalist or journalism organization has ever been charged with a crime for undercover recordings.

“We are dealing with corrupt politicians in the State of California who have their hands in the pockets of Planned Parenthood,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “Sandra Merritt did not violate any law and we will seek dismissal of these baseless charges.”
Of course the media is silent on Planned Parenthood's donations to the California AG.

On the other side of the nation, a Massachusetts judge set bail at only $2,500 for an illegal alien who already had been deported twice for two prior convictions on Class A felony charges. The new charge? Forcible rape.
A Democrat Massachusetts judge in a “Welcoming City” for illegal aliens set a low bond on a previously deported Dominican Uber driver accused of raping a Boston College student. She did so, knowing immigration officials were about to put a detainer on the suspected rapist. Predictably, he has not been seen since that day in court.

Prosecutors in the case asked the judge for a $100,000 bond and told her that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers were working on getting a detainer on the alleged rapist. Instead, Newton District Court Judge Mary Beth Heffernan “insisted on $2,500 bail,” the Boston Herald reported in a scathing article.

The recipient of the small bail, Luis Baez (aka Pedro Valetin), is charged with raping the female college student three times. Reports indicate Baez (or Valetin) worked as an Uber driver using a fictitious name.

Gun Stuff

CBS News took it upon themselves a few years ago to put together some scary stats regarding the possession of "heavy killer weapons that will probably be used to kill you" in the USA.
Their list is based entirely on the 2013 census and the ATF's National Firearms Registration and Transfer Record. The ATF record - which doesn't include pistols - covers the sale and transfer of the following weapons:
  • machine guns
  • short-barreled rifles and shotguns,
  • suppressors
  • destructive devices like bombs and grenades
  • concealable devices with the ability to discharge a shot through the energy of an explosive
  • any firearm with a bore over half an inch that has not been determined to have a legitimate sporting use.
Below is an abbreviated list as the original is 44 States long.
Of course NY is dead last at 3.3 guns per 1,000 residents.

10. Louisiana: 15.1 guns per 1,000 residents
9. Alaska: 15.2 guns per 1,000 residents
8. Nevada: 19.5 guns per 1,000 residents
7. Alabama: 20 guns per 1,000 residents
6. Idaho: 24.2 guns per 1,000 residents
5. Virginia: 30.1 guns per 1,000 residents
4. New Mexico: 40.5 guns per 1,000 residents
3. Arkansas: 41.6 guns per 1,000 residents
2. Washington, D.C.: 66.4 guns per 1,000 residents
1. Wyoming: 195.7 guns per 1,000 residents

I guess parts of Wyoming can be scary.

But Washington, D.C?
Washington, D.C?
Really.... did they include the D.C. Marine Corps barracks armory?

This site shows the 10 states with the highest percentage of households that possess firearms.

  1. Wyoming         62.8%
  2. Montana           61.4%
  3. Alaska              60.6%
  4. South Dakota    59.9%
  5. Arkansas          58.3%
  6. West Virginia    57.9%
  7. Alabama           57.2%
  8. Idaho                56.8%
  9. Mississippi        54.3%
  10. North Dakota     54.3%

And now D.C. is no where in the mix.

When The Police De-Police

The guys in patrol react in several ways to perceived threats and injustices. One of the favorites was to to stop writing parking tickets which was a major source of revenue for the city. The citizenry was not endangered as the overwhelming majority of illegally parked cars do not represent a threat to public safety. Our commanders might thunder but since everyone was doing it they could not single anyone out for retribution. However what is transpiring now is completely different; it's on a whole new level and it is not going to be quickly addressed.

The WashTimes reports:
EXCLUSIVE: FBI report finds officers ‘de-policing’ as anti-cop hostility becomes ‘new norm’

An unclassified FBI study on last year’s cop-killing spree found officers are “de-policing” amid concerns that anti-police defiance fueled in part by movements like Black Lives Matter has become the “new norm.”

“Departments — and individual officers — have increasingly made the decision to stop engaging in proactive policing,” said the report by the FBI Office of Partner Engagement obtained by The Washington Times.

The report, “Assailant Study — Mindsets and Behaviors,” said that the social-justice movement sparked by the 2014 death of 18-year-old Michael Brown at the hands of an officer in Ferguson, Missouri, “made it socially acceptable to challenge and discredit the actions of law enforcement.”
FBI spokesman Matthew Bertron said the study was written in April.

“Nearly every police official interviewed agreed that for the first time, law enforcement not only felt that their national political leaders [publicly] stood against them, but also that the politicians’ words and actions signified that disrespect to law enforcement was acceptable in the aftermath of the Brown shooting,” the study said.
There are several of my readers who understand completely what is going on. You guys know who you are. This is a major sea change that will drive crime rates up. All crime rates will go up, not just homicides, as police officers take a few steps back.

This is no longer your grandfather's America where a healthy dollop of respect for authority and accountability was infused into young people. That is gone, particularly in minority communities. Generations of haphazard child-rearing have seen to that as fathers fled the families as government moved in. In many minority communities - yes, black neighborhoods - police are mistrusted. Cooperation with authorities is stymied by prideful attitudes like "stitches for snitches" that stop investigations dead in their tracks. People do get away with murder.

Police officers are subject to violence, but that has always been the case. Look at the following chart that depicts police officers killed in the line of duty for the past 51 years. A total of 9,313 officers lost their lives, an average of 183 per year.


Look at the spike in  officer deaths that started with the 1967 race riots. That didn't begin to calm down until the mid 70's. Interestingly, cops started wearing Kevlar vests about that time too. The spike in 2001 is self evident. But there was still a downward trend until the tail end of the chart. The lowest point is 2013 (the lowest number of officer deaths in 50 years), the year before the events in Ferguson.

Of course not all of these officers were murdered.
In the last ten years 1,511 officers were killed. The most common causes of death were:
  • 612 (41%) officers were killed in automobile, aircraft and boat accidents
  • 553 (37%) officers were murdered
  • 270 (18%) officers died from illness - deaths from 9/11 diseases were not listed.
But in the last four years - since the 2014 riots in Ferguson and the subsequent attacks of Obama's Justice Department -  the number of officers murdered (shot, stabbed, beaten and strangled) has almost doubled; a 92% increase from 36 to 69  and the number of officers murdered in the past year (2016 vs 2015) has jumped 57%, from 44 to 69. Only eight of these 201 murders did not involve a firearm; the number of police shot to death since Ferguson has increased 94%.

So, are officers concerned?

Things To Consider

My newest grandchild is six months old.
He is here several times a week as his mom works.
He is the cutest little thing ... for a eating, drooling, puking, crapping machine.

People who love their cats also want to lick them.
Or so some idiot hopes.
Consider the Licki Brush.
No, I will not link this sick obsession.

The Republican House just passed the American Healthcare Act.

It's Unfair To Shoot An Armed Robber?

Last November Michael Grace was shot in the head by a Pizza Hut employee as he used a handgun to rob the store (Charlotte, NC), His mother feels that this is unfair.

Ripped from the depths of the interwebs:
The parents of a dead armed robber are very angry over his death, and are demanding to know why his innocent victim was allowed to be armed.

It’s been a difficult week for parents Temia Hairston and Michael Grace Sr. Their son, Michael Grace Jr., was shot and killed during an attempted robbery early Sunday morning.

Police said Grace Jr. and two other people tried to rob a Pizza Hut in the 3200 block of Freedom Drive. During the incident, an employee fired his own handgun and killed Grace Jr.

Hairston said she learned of her son’s death on social media, and only got confirmation from police after contacting them first. The grieving mother said she has been left with dozens of questions about the situation that have thus far gone unanswered.

“If there was to be a death, it was not the place of the employee at Pizza Hut. That is the place of law enforcement,” said Hairston
Wow, what a surprise, the kid was bla

Build It

We need look no further than Europe to see what unrestricted immigration has done to native populations and the negative impact to their cities, their economies, culture and criminal activity. A few countries are finally beginning to resist the flood of military-aged Muslim invaders and are building walls/fences to deal with this problem.

Hungary is providing an example of how strong fences insure good neighbors. For those who don't get it, a good neighbor is one that leaves you alone and does not interfere with your internal affairs.
From the Daily Caller:
BUDAPEST, Hungary — When other countries welcomed refugees with open arms, Hungary decided it was time to eradicate illegal immigration at any cost.

The country succeeded, but that success damaged relations with the European Union in the process.

Hungary’s second border fence has just been completed in the southern town of Asotthalom. The 96-mile long, 14 ft. tall double-line of defense doesn’t look too intimidating from a distance. Go a little closer and you’ll notice several layers of razor-wire capable of delivering electric shocks, cameras, heat sensors and loud speakers ready to tell migrants they’re about to break Hungarian law if they as much as touch the fence.

Add a few hundred military officers and “border hunters” and it’s virtually impossible to break.
The invasion of Hungary was quelled by a fence and rigorous enforcement. The results? In just a week it went from 4,000 to almost 9,000 illegal aliens a day to just a few dozen as shown below.

Build the wall. Build it now and patrol it vigorously.

Thirty-five years ago today I made one of the best decisions of my life.
I married a pretty little Italian girl.
Nothing special tonight, just a nice dinner out. 
No cards, no flowers, just us.

England On Acid

This is a hellish development.
Maiming someone, horribly scarring them for life with caustic liquids. These offenders need to spend many years in prison for this kind of atrocity.

Even better, an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and a scarring for a scarring.
From the  Daily Mail:
The number of acid attacks taking place in Britain is soaring, with school children as young as 13 using corrosive substances as weapons.

Crime statistics show that there was more than 450 acid attacks in London alone last year, with the number of attacks in the capital more than doubling since 2014.

But experts say the real figure is much higher, with the true scale of the problem hidden because people are afraid to come forward.
Acid throwing is more prevalent in South East Asia, particularly Bangladesh, but apparently is growing in popularity in England. This practice needs to be eliminated as harshly and as quickly as possible.

Flight Attendants Go WILD, Dozens Injured

At least 27 people - including three babies - suffered major injuries including suspected broken bones in the carnage which happened en route from Moscow to Bangkok.

Dramatic video shows passengers lying injured in the aisle after they were hurled up to the ceiling.
Oh, it was turbulence.

Dinner and A ...?

Back around 1984, I worked vice/prostitution for a short time. The equation was simple; sex + money = arrest.

I would ask a whore her going price for a piece of... whatever, and fried chicken never entered the conversation. I guess Florida working girls like to eat on the run.

From the NY Post:
BRADENTON, Fla. — Florida authorities have charged a woman with prostitution after she agreed to perform a sex act on an undercover detective for $25 and chicken McNuggets.

The Miami Herald reports 22-year-old Alex Direeno was being held Sunday without bond at the Manatee County Jail on charges of prostitution, possession of drug paraphernalia and on outstanding warrants.

What Does Christianity Have To Do With Islam?

There is only obligation Christians have with Muslims  and it is specified in the Great Commission, Matthew 28:19-20
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
So, in view of Christ's commandment to his disciples, is the Pope's arrival in Cairo for the purpose of converting and baptizing the Mohammedans to Christianity?

I don't think so.
Pope Francis arrives in Cairo on Friday hoping to mend ties with Islamic religious leaders just as Egypt's ancient Christian community faces unprecedented pressure from Islamic State militants who have threatened to wipe it out.

In an address to the Egyptian people this week, Francis spoke of his hope that his visit would help bring peace and encourage dialogue and reconciliation with the Islamic world.

But it comes at a painful time for Egypt's Copts, the Middle East's largest Christian community, three weeks after Islamic State suicide bombers killed 45 people in twin church bombings.

Those attacks followed a cathedral bombing that killed 28 people in December and a spree of murders that has forced hundreds of Christians to flee North Sinai, where the group is most active.

The Muslims are simply being faithful to the commandments of their Prophet. Unfortunately the Pope doesn't understand that precept and just wants to make nicey-nice with these butchers. As a former Catholic, this really astounds me. But then again, the priesthood has decidedly been traveling in uncharted socialist waters for some time.

POPE FRANCIS says “there is no such thing as Muslim terrorism”

New News? 'Bout Time!

I hardly ever watch Fox News, haven't for about three or four years.
Why? I got tired of idiots like Juan Williams blathering his liberal, mindless crap and the "fair and balanced" yelling back and forth with the likes of coke head Beckel and other fools.

Now that Fox has completely grabbed its ankles, it's time for another network.

On the heels of major shakeups at the Fox News Network, an alternative conservative network is being actively discussed amongst conservative fat cats.

A well-placed source close to the proposal tells Mediaite that serious discussions are underway to create an alternative conservative cable network on the belief that the Fox News Network is moving too far to the left. The source, who is engaged in the talks, says a meeting is planned for today with two prominent high-powered television executives, some underperforming conservative networks and people who have an interest and the ability to fund a new network.

Fat, Homicidal And A Bad Haircut Is No Way To Go Through Life, Son
But at least he's not crazy.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Thursday that while North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may be a ruthless, murderous dictator, he is not mentally insane.

"All indications are that he is not crazy," Tillerson told Fox News. "He may be ruthless. He may be a murderer. He may be someone who in many respects we would say by our standards is irrational. But he is not insane."

Tiny human brains have been grown in a dish, an accomplishment which could lead to breakthrough treatments for conditions like Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia.

The brain cells have formed similar circuits to those of a 2-month-old fetus and give scientists an opportunity to examine how the brain and any diseases develop.

Researchers at Stanford University first grew two forebrain circuits, before going on to the next step of growing a mini-organ over nine months.

There, fixed it for ya.
A Russian warship has sunk after colliding with a freighter in the Black Sea off the Turkish coast.

The 78 crew members on board the Russian navy's intelligence vessel - Liman - were evacuated.

Turkish officials said 15 Russian sailors were rescued after boats and helicopters were dispatched to the area, near the Istanbul coastline.

The crew on the freighter, which was carrying livestock, were also all accounted for and safe.

Shipping agent GAC said the Russian ship and the Togo-flagged vessel - Youzarsif H - collided in fog and low visibility.

Home Again, Home Again

It's good to be home, We were gone almost three weeks,

The weather in Fayetteville was gorgeous, highs in the eighties and clear skies almost all the time. In addition to working on Danielle's house, I also took a two mile walk almost everyday. Lost a few pounds and got some sun.

We also looked at some houses in that zip code and in a neighboring county. There are some incredibly beautiful homes in Spring Lake, the town where Danielle lives; way out of our price range of course but very nice. Her neighborhood is extremely well kept, the lots are large (she bought a ranch on a 3/4 acre plot), there are no cookie-cutter homes and the people are very friendly. I met a few of them on my walks; friendly Southern folk.

Last week we had the neighbors from across the street over for dinner; he's retired Army and works for the same Special Forces contractor as Danielle. Very nice couple with two children.

Danielle will be going to Ft. Bennington for jump school so she might miss her cousin's wedding in June. She doesn't know the exact date yet so we'll have to wait a bit.

We drove back to Maryland last Saturday and got most of Mom's financial affairs settled. She had several accounts squirreled away over the years and some of the institutions would not give up any information until we had filed our power of attorney forms with them. My sister and her husband have done an incredible amount of work maintaining her finances and assisting with her care. At least we know that there are sufficient funds to maintain her in the assisted living center, even at a higher cost due to the level of care she is now receiving.

This is what Dad would have wanted. Mom is failing rather quickly but is still feisty. She has very low heart function left and congestive heart failure will do her in, maybe in a few months, or a few weeks, it's hard to say. But knowing Mom, she could go to the end of the year perhaps just because she's ornery. Either way, it's in God's hands.

When we moved Mom out of her condo in Hauppauge, Long Island in 2015, we packed up a ton of her stuff and moved it into my sister's garage. Caren said Mom had boxes of photos that we should go through. We finally sat down and did so on Friday. I couldn't believe some of the old photos. A few were almost  100 years old. I saw some pictures of Mom when she was all dolled up in her late teens. She was stunning. By time she was twenty she already had my sister (1948), I followed a eight days less than a year later.

Draining The VA Swamp

An estimated 346 employees in the Department of Veterans Affairs do no actual work for taxpayers. Instead, they spend all of their time doing work on behalf of their union while drawing a federal salary, a practice known as "official time."

That's according to a report by the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office. But exactly what those VA workers are doing and why so many are doing it is not clear. The VA doesn't track that, and the GAO report offers no clue.
And the number may actually be much higher. I'd love to see how much community organizing these slobs do.

Many federal agencies have workers who do nothing but take care of union affairs but the VA employs almost half of them. And typically, no one knows what they are doing.
At least 700 federal workers do nothing but work on official time, according to the GAO and data obtained from various Freedom of Information Act requests. The VA uses official time far more than any other agency.

"Employees spent approximately 1,057,00 hours on official time for union representation activities … In addition, the data show that 346 employees spent 100 percent of their time on official time," the GAO found in a January report.

It is possible that even those figures are conservative. The GAO said the said the VA's poor monitoring meant the data was "inconsistent and not reliable."
Indictments hopefully to follow.

Back In Maryland

We had a great time in NC and did some work on her house, fixing the walls in her dining room and my SIL and I installing a new storm door on the front of her house. Our daughter Jess and her family left on Easter Sunday and my oldest daughter and her family left on Thursday. From a house full of 12 people it was just the three of us for the end of last week. And of course the two dogs.

We left Danielle's house on Saturday and we are back a my sister's in Maryland. We had a nice Sunday dinner with my Mom at the senior facility and she was was pretty much all there, a real blessing indeed. We have some work to do over the next few days getting the rest of Mom's finances in order, back to Syracuse on Wednesday.

Why Does America Have So Much Difficulty Executing Murderers?

Supreme Court Justice Gorsuch helped an Arkansas murderer meet his Maker by breaking a tie vote to allow the execution.
In what will undoubtedly be a memorable first major tie-breaking vote as a Supreme Court Judge, Neil Gorsuch cast the deciding vote last night to allow Arkansas to begin executing a group of 8 death-row inmates. The decision came after attorneys for the State of Arkansas sought an expedited process to allow for the executions to proceed before their lethal-injection drugs expire at the end of April.
The "Kill You" drugs used by Arkansas were about to expire? Wha? Don't they have veterinarians in Arkansas?

The drug most commonly used by veterinarians to euthanize a dog is phenobarbital, an anti-seizure medication that in a large dosage will stop the heart and brain function in about two minutes.
And it costs anywhere from $50 to $150 per injection. If the murder victim is related to a veterinarian, I bet it will be done gratis.

Sleep and Dream, Sweet Prince, As We Boot Your Ass Into Eternity

Arkansas used a Cocktail O'Death using three ingredients:
Midazolam, the drug used to make inmates unconscious before two more drugs paralyze and kill them, does not effectively prevent a painful death. The second drug, pancuronium bromide, paralyzes the inmate. The third, potassium chloride, brings on cardiac arrest and stops the heart.
The cost of these cocktails has risen sharply; last year the American Pharmacists Association refused to participate in executions. As there are relatively few executions in the US the cost of these chemicals has increased from $500 per vial to over $1,000. We really need to talk to the veterinarians.

There is yet another avenue to achieve low cost, painless executions. About $30 worth of street heroin will blissfully place the murderer in the arms of Morpheus, forever.
