Another Obama Legacy ???

Left, Undone: As Women March, Blacks Increasingly Question the Quality of their Allies

“The point for me,” said one 41-year-old African-American who works in Silicon Valley, “is that black people in America can trust no one but each other. This world means us harm and nobody has our back; you’d have to be a fool to believe otherwise.”

Did Obama ad-Dajjal cause this, or merely help to reveal it? Whatever the case, the first "black" president does not appear to have helped African-Americans (or Africans, either).

Turkey Invading Kurdistan

Turkish troops continue to mass at the Syrian border Friday, with artillery fire from their positions pounding Kurdish YPG forces in the Syrian Afrin District, and Turkish DM Nurettin Canikli saying this is the “de facto start” of a full-scale Syrian invasion of Kurdish territory.

Turkish officials have threatened this invasion off and on for months, and earlier this week said it was imminent. Canikli says now there is “no turning back” and that the invasion is in progress.

Turkey has long presented the Kurdish YPG as “terrorists,” and insisted they will not allow them to retain territory west of the Euphrates River. To this end, President Erdogan says Turkey will attack Afrin first, then Manbij.

Other Turkish officials, however, say they consider it unacceptable for the YPG to retain any territory near the Turkish border at all, which means nearly all of their territory is at risk from this ongoing operation.

I have never understood Turkey's hatred of the Kurds, but it is real.

This invasion may pit Turkey against US-supported terrorists. Way to go, Donald !!!

But maybe this is a good thing. I don't think Turkey will be the push-over that Iraq was. The loser in this war may be taught a hard lesson, and it would be nice if that lesson led to a cool down of what has been happening for decades in the Middle East.

Are We Breaking The US Army ???

That's the claim made in this report:

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/were-killing-these-kids-were-breaking-the-army/

The last time Congress declared war was December 8, 1941.

So how come we're now "at war" just about everywhere in the world?

And by the way, we're not just breaking the Army, we're breaking the US economy, too. Did you ever think about that?

The 29 Stages Of A Twitterstorm

You can read about them here:

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

By the way, I don't Twitter ... and perhaps now I know why.

How I Would Respond To A Government "Shutdown"

I think this is a wonderful opportunity to reassess our spending priorities.

Here is what I would do:

(1) Anything which directly benefits We The People goes to the top of the "keeper" list.

(2) Anything which does NOT directly benefit We The People goes to the bottom.

Here are some examples, from top to bottom:

  • Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid go to the top.
  • Money to support our wounded veterans and their families goes next.
  • $ $ $ $ $ $ $ $
  • Military spending not related to "war on terror" goes near the bottom. If we had a real State Department, we wouldn't need such a big military.
  • Anything related to "Homeland Security", domestic surveillance, and "war on terror" goes next to the bottom. It hasn't done a damn thing to keep us "safe" for almost 17 years.
  • Any money, weapons, or other support going to Israel goes to the very bottom, and should be the first thing eliminated. They can fend for themselves.

Any other ideas you might have will be appreciated.

THIS Is How Stupid America Has Become

A guest on Fox News defended white supremacists over undocumented immigrants on Thursday evening.

"The white supremacists are American citizens," Mark Steyn, a regular guest on the network, told Tucker Carlson. "The illegal immigrants are people who shouldn’t be here."

How can any rational person say the guest "went off the rails"?

First of all, the above claim that citizens who complain about immigration are "white supremacists" is just a cheap slur. We're the "We The People" of the US Constitution; the non-citizen immigrants are not.

Second, although the "shouldn't be here" part of the statement is a problematic distraction, why is the MSM defending people who broke the rules?

This entire argument is ludicrous. And it shows how close to the end we are. The US is being flushed down the toilet of history, and those who seek to defend the country somehow have become criminals.

Another front in the US civil war.

Pitiful.

Shocking FISA Memo ???

All hell is breaking loose in Washington D.C. after a four-page memo detailing extensive FISA court abuse was made available to the entire House of Representatives Thursday. The contents of the memo are so explosive, says Journalist Sara Carter, that it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice and the end of Robert Mueller's special counsel investigation.

These sources say the report is “explosive,” stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates.

Q: Why hasn't this FISA memo already been leaked to the public?

A: My guess would be that no one in Congress has balls any more.

Fiat justitia ruat cælum ("Let justice be done though the heavens fall".)

If Trump does not jump on this and release it himself, he might as well resign now.
