Ted Cruz called it quits, which makes it's the third straight election that I'll be holding my nose when I vote. I was for either Scott Walker or Rick Perry because they are/were government executives that were effective.  But the Liberal media trivialized this primary process so that competence wasn't highlighted, but showmanship was. I hate the news media, but I'm not prepared to throw out the First Amendment just yet. Perhaps, we can pressure the sick media into performing their Constitutionally mandated duty of honest journalism. I hope so for the sake of the country.


Can we all grow-up a bit here? There are serious issues to deal with this election year. The parade of stupidity and childishness displayed by the various Presidential "caninedates" makes me wonder if this is the best we can come up with for the most powerful office in the world?

Potential "First Laddie", Bill Clinton's former mistress commented on his undersized, but allegedly effective, "Johnson". Earlier, in the campaign, G.O.P. candidate, Marco Rubio commented on Donald Trump's small hands suggesting a correlation to the size of his penis. Trump is suggesting that Ted Cruz's dad, Rafael, was an associate of Lee Harvey Oswald. Hillary's screeching voice is too much to stomach especially when paired with hair brained socialist ideas. This is just a small sample of the stupidity of this election campaign.

Perhaps, they should call the next President, the "Presidunce". Oh that's right, Obama already has the job.

Intellectual lightweight, Matt Lauer interviewed Donald Trump yesterday on the Today Show.  Trump always delivers high ratings to talking head shows because he never fails to disappoint with his shoot from the lip style.

So what was the vital nugget of information that viewers took away from the interview? Was it how Trump would
Any questions?
address the National Debt? Was it how Trump would defeat ISIS? Was it how Trump would strengthen the American military? Was it  who Trump would appoint to the Supreme Court to replace the late Justice Scalia?

No, what viewers took away from the interview was that  Donald Trump would allow Caitlin Jenner to use any restroom in Trump Tower that s/he wants to use. What has happened to this country?

A couple of years ago this restroom controversy would not have been a seriously discussed issue.  Depending upon one's individual plumbing, there was no question about what restroom to use. It would have been the stuff of late night comedians' jokes. But transgender identity is a serious mental health issue. The suicide rate among transgenders is 40%.  That issue is what is truly important--not restroom selection. But it is an issue that should be handled by a qualified mental health  professional

But this gender identity crisis is a manufactured issue. As a result, truly serious matters  are not being discussed. The National Debt--that's not important. ISIS--that's not important. The National Defense--that's not important. Health care--that's not important.  The next Supreme Court Justice appointee--that's not important. That a putative felon is being seriously considered for the highest office in the land--that especially is not important.

Ironically, free market capitalism as bastardized as it is, is being used by corporate hating Leftists to promote this agenda. Cowardly businesses, afraid of left wing media backlash, have joined the conga line of the "outraged" by boycotting or otherwise denying business to those states that codify and  restrict restroom use to the original birth gender of the restroom patron.  Target Department Store has buckled under and will allow customers to use any restroom that they feel corresponds to their gender identity. Never mind that some predator might use that to his or her advantage to molest or otherwise harass or offend other customers. Their feelings are irrelevant.

NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver is holding North Carolina hostage with the implied threat of moving of the NBA All Star game next year from Charlotte, North Carolina. The sports talking heads are talking about North Carolina "doing the right thing" and allowing restroom gender neutrality. I'm sorry, but what the hell qualifies a jock sniffer or a half educated ex-jock to opine about a mental health issue as if it were a matter of national security?    

There is a far more sinister side to this controversy. The true power of the media is ignore an issue or conversely make it the only topic of discussion. By making restroom use the question de jour, the issue of Hillary Clinton's ethical qualifications to be President of the United States is being quietly swept under the rug.  Our right to know has become the oligarchy's right to let us know. We don't need to be talking about gender-neutral toilets when the country is going down the toilet.

The Cobra is Loose!

Today on the Chris Plante Show on WMAL, Washington, D.C., Plante broke the story about how Vice-President Joe Biden is code named "Cobra" by the Secret Service. It seems that "Lunch Bucket Joe", erstwhile working class hero, is fond of skinny-dipping and wandering naked throughout Blair House, the Vice-Presidential residence. Whenever the Veep is unclothed, agents get on the horn and warn female agents to make themselves scarce as the "Cobra" makes the rounds.  There was no indication as to how the "Cobra" got his code name, but you can figure that one out.

One of the worst ways of "comforting" someone is by pointing out that someone "always has it worse" than s/he does. First, neither of them is in someone else's shoes and second, how does that help either of them or the other person?
     Arlo Guthrie pointed that out in a song where he went through a list of bad luck cases and then asked and I'm paraphrasing, "What about that last guy? You know the one that doesn't have anyone worse off than him? He doesn't have any place to go!" In Lewinsky's case where could she go? The Internet was in its "Golden Age" and the 365/7/24 news cycle made her story known to all but the most off the grid aborigine.
     That same notoriety machine absolved Bill Clinton of all blame and turned him into a Paris Hilton/Kim Kardashian sex icon. But it all turns on how you embrace the darkness. If you're Hilton or Kardashian, you turn it into a crude self promotional scheme and profit. Or you continue to take the abuse from the urinalists (read journalists) and the in-the-know elites and press on toward a nobler end.
I hope that it all turns out well for her and that Clinton gets his just desserts (read a special place in Hell next to Teddy Kennedy).

It's enough to make you think that you are in some sort of a Twilight Zone. There are a plethora of so-called "free zones" emerging throughout the United States. Most are in reaction to dangers, some real and most imagined. For example, there are "gun free zones", the misnamed "free speech zone, and now "tech free zones"! This blog will not discuss the wussy pussy "safe zones" for snowflake millennials. That will be discussed in a future post.

The Pop Tart Pistol is especially
dangerous to diabetics.
Gun Free Zones

"Gun free zones" are self-explanatory. But they are also  "zero tolerance" zones. And this intolerance includes such benign "weaponry" as toy guns, squirt guns, and Pop Tarts bitten into the shape of a gun. No guns, real or otherwise, are to be brandished by ANYONE, that is, except for the campus gunman. The most ridiculous aspect of "gun free zones" is that the ban includes campus security. There's an old saying, "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king."  So too are armed gunman "kings" terrorizing campuses or movie theaters. And yet, the stupid question is still asked as to how could this have been prevented?

Free Speech Zones

More troubling are the so-called "free speech zones", especially those located on college campuses. Student Nicole Sanders is the plaintiff in a free speech lawsuit against Blinn College in Texas.* Her lawsuit challenges the college restricting speech to a specific “Free Speech Zone” on campus. Her suit resulted from an incident where Sanders was accosted by a college administrator and three armed police officers. She was advocating for a conceal-carry policy to be instated on campus.

     Sanders was informed by the administrator that she needed "special permission" to advocate for a "conceal carry policy" on campus and to recruit members for a student organization that she was forming. The college administration dragged their collective feet for six weeks allegedly to approve a simple card that she was going to hand out to fellow students. What was the incendiary message on the card that the administration was exercising content control over? It was an explanation of the 4th and 5th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

     While it is settled law that free speech can be regulated as to time, place, and manner; such regulation must be reasonable. According to the Wikipedia article on free speech:

"Freedom of speech is also sometimes limited to so-called free speech zones, which can take the form of a wire fence enclosure, barricades, or an alternative venue designed to segregate speakers according to the content of their message. There is much controversy surrounding the creation of these areas – the mere existence of such zones is offensive to some people, who maintain that the First Amendment makes the entire country an unrestricted free speech zone. Civil libertarians often claim that Free Speech Zones are used as a form of censorship and public relations management to conceal the existence of popular opposition from the mass public and elected officials... " [Citations omitted.]**

But if Sanders didn’t get prior permission to express her views as required by the college, she was limited to expressing her views only in the “Free Speech Area” on the campus. The prescribed zone is about 16 feet long and 11 feet wide. It is approximately the size of a  parking space for a college president. Talk about control and containment! Such free speech zones are more like  containment areas to quarantine diseased animals. 

     I recall the so-called "free speech area" at Southwestern Junior College, which I attended in late 1960s-70s. The area was away from the main campus quad and located near a parking lot on undeveloped land adjacent to the Art Department. The late 1960s-70s were the days of the Vietnam War protests. It was very clear to anyone with a pulse that the object of the "free speech area" was to isolate and contain student dissent. It apparently worked because the "free speech  area" was primarily used to stage garage rock band performances hired by the puppet student government to entertain students during the "College Hour".

     "College Hour" was from 11 am until 12 noon. It was designed to bring students and faculty together in harmony and in various academic combinations, e.g., study groups, professor-student conferences, and rock bands! Protests faded after the draft lotteries of 1969 and 1970. Those lucky students with "safe" lottery draft numbers were free thereafter to listen to bad rock music without fear of involuntary military service. So much for (self-) righteously indignant dissent. So to paraphrase an old saying, it seemed that music, even bad music, does and did soothe the savage breast of protest. [Ed. note: The saying is attributed to William Congreve and is correctly stated as,  "Musick has charms to soothe a savage breast," this is often misquoted as "Music soothes the savage beast ...]

Tech Free Zones

From CBSNew York comes a report that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children aged two years and older should be limited to only hours a day in front of a screen (TV, iPad, tablet, etc.) and zero face time for children under two.** The article also quotes Dr. Ari Brown as recommending that parents, “Have tech-free zones. So "tech-free zones" might be meals times and definitely the bedroom.”

     The CBSNewYork report also noted that Pediatricians say studies have shown that excessive media use can lead to attention problems, sleep disorders, and obesity." We get that now with adults.  The term "couch potato" (code for "fat ass") has become a part of the cultural lexicon.

     We've all seen the YouTube video of the engrossed young woman falling into a fountain while texting.  This compendium of texting calamities is instructive and amusing.

The video is preceded by a "Don't text while driving" message, alerting young drivers of the dangers of texting. To add to the dangers of texting while driving, there is also a medical condition called "text neck". 

     According to an article*** in the Blaze,  "[Text neck] occurs because the joints and tissue in the neck are not built to withstand being flexed for long periods, and spending hours peering down at a screen puts them under too much stress."

     A survey reported by the Blaze, found that the average American sends 41.5 text messages per day.  The 18-24 age group sends 109.5 texts per day. the Blaze concluded that "... this is a lot of time hunched over a small screen and research is saying it's beginning to round out its own medical condition: the text neck." It's also a lot of wasted time sending grammatically awful messages.

     Many other maladies have come about or have been exacerbated because of technology, e.g.,  our old friend, carpal tunnel syndrome, circulation problems from sitting in front of a computer too long, and even blindness from staring too much at a computer screen.

Proposal: Create Common Sense Zones

Most of the above-mentioned problems are created by lack of common sense like, e.g., establishing "gun free zone" where armed bad actors can terrify innocent civilians and unarmed security guards or where distracted people fall into plaza fountains while texting. Common sense zones should be created to allow people to exercise good judgment. But what are the chances of establishing "common sense zones" in America? Answer: Slim and None and Slim just left town.

People are losing sight of the importance of this year's presidential election. At stake is the transformation of a representative republic into a Socialist/Fascist state laced with the Third World patina of brutal tyranny and abject poverty. The election of Hillary Clinton for a third term of the Obama policies would be an unmitigated disaster for freedom and democracy.

A minor delay on the road to serfdom.
     Her opponent the in Democrat  primaries, Socialist Bernie Sanders has two chances of overtaking Clinton-- Slim and None, and Slim just left town.  The Democrat establishment has jury rigged the process so that with the hand-picked "Super Delegates" in her wide hip pocket, Clinton is all but assured of the nomination. This is also in compensation for the party's gift of the nomination in 2008, to Barack Obama. The gift to Obama was not because the Democrat seriously believes in racial equality-- they don't. It was so that the Democrats could have cover to implement their destructive agenda under cover of a racism against our guy shield. Any criticism of the Democrat agenda would be attributed to the mostly imagined racism against Obama by the critics. Democrats are now attempting to replicate the same political protectionist strategy using sexism against a woman to protect their malevolent agenda. Democrats always put party before country and people.   

    What is particularly galling is that Hillary Clinton is a putative felon and sociopath. Sociopath is not a term to be thrown around lightly. Her lies and unbridled ethical lapses notwithstanding, her greed has lead her to influence peddling and money laundering via the Clinton Foundation. But it is her endorsement of unrestricted abortion on demand that speaks volumes about her lack of respect for the sanctity of human life. If someone has such little regard for the lives of the most helpless of living beings, they cannot be too far removed from giving an order to institute a "Final Solution" for political enemies or for pesky social problems.   That half of the legal voting population would even consider voting for such a morally inert person for the highest office in the land is disheartening and speaks lowly of the American electorate. Even more galling is that the corruption of the Obama Justice Department may spare her from donning the orange jump suit that she so richly deserves. There are people that have served serious jail time for less than what Hillary is alleged to have done. Yet, there she is, the front runner for the Democrat nomination for President of the United States. 

     But I'm not particularly enthused over a choice between Ted Cruz and Donald Trump to counter the danger of a Hillary Clinton régime. Each man fills me with discomfort as to their abilities to do justice to the office. Maybe it's because I have a naïve view of the Presidency, i.e., the man or woman that fills the job should be larger than life. Names like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight D.  Eisenhower, and Ronald Reagan all come to mind. Yes, I omitted Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR). But that was on purpose because the FDR initiated the decline of the United States into crypto-Socialist status. Other Presidents have done some individually great things, but their character flaws or political missteps prevented them from being inducted into the Pantheon of great Presidents 

     What is dismaying about the G.O.P. primary process has been the childish bickering of the two front runners. But this was a common occurrence throughout the G.O.P. primary process. The absolute silliness of making Carly Fiorina's face a campaign issue was silly. (As an aside, smart women like Fiorina have always made me weak in the knees. Hence, they are sexy. Even though she's "older", Barbara Corcoran of the "Shark Tank" TV show is another hottie.)  Then there was the silliness over the size of Trump's hands by Marco Rubio implying somehow that Trump's manhood was sub par.  This caused me to not take Rubio seriously as being mature enough for the big job of being President of the United States.

     Donald Trump cries like a little girl over the "unfairness" of the G.O.P. establishment. Donald, you're always bragging about what a "tough businessman" you are. Well, okay you're now in the rough and tumble world of partisan politics. You're a smart guy. So if you don't know what to do in this terra nova, then hire people that do know. Stop acting like some retired Navy Chief with his rules of personal engagement: i.e.: (1) the Chief is always right, (2) if the Chief is wrong, then Rule No. (1) applies. You are not infallible Donald. Start acting like a serious candidate instead of a spoiled brat that isn't getting his way, i.e., "Don't you know who I am?"

     Ted Cruz is another case. We all know he's scary smart as his Harvard Law Professor, Alan Dershowitz has affirmed. But somehow something is missing. Maybe a personality transplant is in order. It would not have to be much more complicated than transplanting the personality of a rutabaga to Cruz for him to be able to defeat either the screechy crone, Hillary Clinton or the Babbling Bolshevik Bernie Sanders. Neither of the two Democrat contenders offer much more than warmed over borscht from a Communist party cell meeting.

     I didn't mention John Kasich earlier on purpose because he's math challenged in his thinking that he's got a shot at the nomination. We don't need a math dummy as President or any dummy for that matter. Kasich is so delusional that he seriously thinks that he'll leapfrog over Trump and Cruz for the nomination. The postman's son always annoys at least twice.

*  *  *  *  *  
So what do we make of this? It seems that this November, it's  business as usual. And just as in 1996, 2008, and 2012, I'll be holding my nose one more time as I vote. But this time it's really different, I'm voting as if my life depends on it. So should you because it does.

Isn't it amazing that Donald Trump's life was threatened by a leftist Brown shirt thug last Saturday, but that he is the one being accused of inciting violence? It is the Hitlerian tactics of the radical left that is causing the so-called "violence". I was a Ted Cruz supporter until Cruz opened his mouth and sided with the irrational left by blaming Trump for the actions of the leftist thugs.

Quite frankly I am tired of the leftist direction of this country. It is breeding a nation of blubbering crybaby victims. I am tired of criminals being elevated to the status of martyrs. I am tired of false claims of racism and sexism where there is none. I am tired of every little act or deed, real or imagined, being characterized as a "micro aggression" against some hypersensitive basket case. Where is the nation's backbone? Where is our sense of humor?

Our nation is not only descending into third world status, but into the humorless abyss of a totalitarian state. The real danger comes from the tactics and rhetoric of coat and tie Bolsheviks, like Bernie Sanders and the stuffed pantsuit Fascism of Hillary Clinton. I pray that America wakes up before we find ourselves under the jackboot of a radical leftist tyrant.

The scam also known as climate change is a hoax. No one seemed to learn anything from the East Anglia scandal in which e-mails were hacked and showed that much the climate data was manipulated to get a desired result. See http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/columnists/christopherbooker/6679082/Climate-change-this-is-the-worst-scientific-scandal-of-our-generation.html.

 Let's get this straight. Climate change is the latest iteration of the original new ice age prediction in a 1975 Newsweek article of an oncoming new "Ice Age". Time Magazine joined the scam with several covers ballyhooing oncoming ice age.

 The "Wired Magazine" article cited below comes from a magazine group, Condé Nast, which is in the tank for the entire Obama agenda, including "climate change". The author cites UN data to bolster his weak argument. The UN is on record as wanting to impose a so-called carbon tax upon the world, which renders them with a severe conflict of interest. See http://www.wired.com/2016/01/please-stop-saying-humans-arent-causing-climate-change/?mbid=nl_12616.

 Soon after the East Anglia scandal broke, flim flam man Al Gore closed down his Carbon Credit Exchange, in what we would call in the law consciousness of guilt. See http://www.nationalreview.com/planet-gore/252703/rip-al-gores-chicago-climate-exchange-has-died-greg-pollowitz. Ten years ago, Gore predicted that the Earth would be cooked. It looks like he's wrong. See: http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2006/01/27/algore_we_have_ten_years_left_before_earth_cooks/.

Here are some things to consider about the Climate Change scam:

¶    Carbon credits are the new way for the wealthy elite to make money at your expense. Make no mistake, the wealthy elite resent the fact that middle income people muscled into their Cosa Nostra, the stock market, with their 401(k) s. Elites are elites for a reason. See http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2016/01/obama-wins-another-battle-in-his-war-on-coal.html.

 ¶     It's all about control with these elitist control freaks. They want to control where you live, where and how much you drive. If they have their way, you won't have any more 4th of July BBQs because of "carbon footprint" concerns and the fact that patriotism will a thing of the past. Obama is currently conducting his war on coal and driving up the price of electricity for the average person. See http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2016/01/obama-wins-another-battle-in-his-war-on-coal.html.

 ¶      It's all about redistributing wealth, but not the wealth of the elites. You, the middle income citizen will carbon taxed into a controlled subsistence lifestyle with a UN carbon tax. Here's a list of such proposed taxes: http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/07/07/here-is-a-list-of-global-taxes-proposed-by-the-united-nations-last-week/.

  ¶     Humans exhale carbon dioxide all of the time, which plants love and in a symbiotic relationship produces oxygen when they "exhale". Can you imagine some Liberal Fascist tyrant jailing people because their carbon footprint is criminal? What a nifty way to control dissent and save the Earth.

 ¶      If the situation is dire why are they indoctrinating the public rather than acting on a clear and present danger? Maybe they have no basis for their scam to justify a wholesale transformation of our society.

 The freedom and liberty that you save may be your own. Oppose climate change. Think about it.

Donald Trump had a "presser" following his signing of a pledge to not engage in a third party run if he doesn't get the GOP nomination. It was refreshing to see someone not cower before the "presstitutes"! In fact, "The Donald" intimidated them. After the twin balless wonders, Mitch "Tranny" McConnell and John "Crybaby Drunk" Boehner (read bonehead), Trump is a breath of fresh air. I'm not endorsing him, but he's brought a "the Emperor has no clothes" tone to the campaign. Alternatives to the professional politician class have arisen, e.g., Dr. Ben Carson, Carly Fiorina, and Ted Cruz. Let's that hope that the NE Republicans don't ruin things. To see the "presser" courtesy of C-Span see:

A new lawsuit might cast some doubt on the viability of a Hillary Clinton presidential run in 2016. No, it's not the then Presidential candidate Bill Clinton's bimbo eruptions of the 1990s, featuring such characters as Paula Jones and Gennifer Flowers. But former President Clinton's friendship with a Democrat fundraiser who was later jailed for consorting with an underage female is the subject of news article by the UK Daily Mail.
    Bill Clinton, who was/is friends with Jeffrey Epstein, who served time in 2008 for having a dalliance with an underage sexual partner, took multiple trips to the onetime billionaire's private island in the Caribbean where underage girls were allegedly kept as sex slaves. According to the UK Daily Mail:
"Flight logs pinpoint Clinton's trips on Epstein's jet between the years 2002 and 2005, while he was working on his philanthropic post-presidential career and while his wife Hillary was a Senator for their adopted state of New York." 
The Daily Mail also highlighted these salient facts:
  • The former president was friends with Jeffrey Epstein, a financier who was arrested in 2008 for soliciting underage prostitutes,
  • A new lawsuit has revealed how Clinton took multiple trips to Epstein's private island where he 'kept young women as sex slaves',
  • Clinton was also apparently friends with a woman who collected naked pictures of underage girls for Epstein to choose from. He hasn't cut ties with that woman, however, and invited her to Chelsea's wedding,
  • Comes as friends now fear that if Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2016, all of their family's old scandals will be brought to the forefront, and
  • Epstein has a host of famous friends including Prince Andrew who stayed at his New York mansion AFTER his arrest.
But will this latest Bubba sex scandal hurt Hillary's run for the White House? Will it add to the legend of "Lothario" Bill Clinton, the Godfather of infidelity whose activities inspired the hijinks of former Democrat Congressman, Anthony Weiner and former Democrat New York Governor, Eliot Spitzer? If past history is any guide. No to the first and yes to the latter.
   Bill Clinton is America's lovable rascal. America, as encouraged by a fawning media, vicariously lives through Bubba's exploits. Hillary, as encouraged by a fawning media and low information voters, also will survive this bump in the political road. 
   The examples of Gerry Studds, an openly gay Democrat Congressman who had sex with a 17-year old Congressional page and New Jersey Democrat Senator, Bob Menendez suggest that underage sex romps with minors is no impediment to a viable political career for Democrats. Studds was given a glorious send-off at his funeral. Menendez remains unaccountable for alleged underage sex romps in the Dominican Republic. But why would sex crimes derail a Democrat politician? In fact, a criminal record or membership in racist groups is no problem a political party, containing all political chancres if it will help their Liberal-Fascist agenda.
