Move Over Colin Kaepernick—This NFL Star Wears Che Guevara Cleats

Move Over Colin Kaepernick—This NFL Star Wears Che Guevara Cleats
Many millions of people have been taken in by the super propaganda job done about Che and that famous portrait of him as the sincere revolutionary. Of course, almost no one has ever read his own diaries, or the accounts of those who knew him, including relatives he embarassed by his flagrant sexual abuse of maids. Nor has it ever occurred to them that this "heroically brave" revolutionary surrendered to two soldiers when he and his companion were both armed, after he left the rest of his group with instructions to fight to the death. He thought his fame would prevent anything happening to him as a prisoner, but somebody decided to do for him what he'd done for so very many others, just shoot him. Then there's the myth of "equality" in Cuba, which Black Cubans can destroy so easily. But decades of unending propaganda have their effect, and while we make Bad Guys of some of our heroes, we get fooled into make Heroes out of some truly Bad Guys.--Del. Another reason--if I needed one--not to watch the NFL. ~Bob

Ukrainians Find Misuse of $5.3 BILLION in US Aid During Obama Admin

Ukrainians Find Misuse of $5.3 BILLION in US Aid During Obama Admin
Excerpt: On Thursday Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced that Democrats will move ahead on impeachment of President Trump for not giving away US taxpayer dollars quick enough to one of the world’s most corrupt nations. Democrats believe this is grounds for impeachment.
Hmm. Earlier this week Rudy Giuliani met with Ukrainian officials to discuss the misuse of US funds in Ukraine and the creation of a group to fight corruption in the country. According to a Facebook post by Ukrainian independent lawmaker Andrey Derkach Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani recently flew to Kiev to discuss the creation of a group to fight corruption. In October Ukrainian Parliamentarian Andrey (Andriy) Derkach revealed in a press conference that Joe Biden was paid $900,000 for lobbying efforts from Burisma Holdings in Ukraine.

America, the Fascist: The Communist Histories of Howard Zinn, William Z. Foster Used in US Schools
Detailed discussion of how the Far Left has gained so much influence. It's simple, get some really slanted, deceitful textbooks adopted widely in US schools for decades, that are nicely written and read smoothly, "proving" what a horrible nation we have always been, that all the good stuff you might have heard about us is false, misleading propaganda. And gee, after millions of young people have been indoctinated with this crap, things will go downhill in many ways. Some of those people become teachers in turn, even college professors, and the perverted story of our country gets cemented into place more and more. Lots of worrisome statistics in here, so here's the trigger warning- you may not feel really chipper after reading all this. In fact, you may reach for the bourbon bottle and a straw. We can only hope for a reversal of all this somehow. --Del

Democrats Hammered by Pundits After Trump Tax Law Thrown Out
CA Democrats tried to force all candidates to release tax records...And the court smacked them down. Rightfully so. Much as many of us would find that information interesting, I don't think anyone has a right to it. Running for public office has all kinds of requirements and hazards, whether the person is rich or not, paid a lot of taxes or used the system's rules to avoid paying some, is not germane to their capacity for holding office. Only if they've been convicted of deliberate tax evasion (or any other criminal acts) do voters have a right to know about it. --Del

That Girl Who Wasted Millions and Dropped Out Before a Primary Was Me by Daniel Greenfield
Excerpt: Senator Kamala Devi Harris, who survived growing up in the segregated deep south of Berkeley and then Montreal, was a sure lock to be the next President of the United States. And then, after raising $36 million from gullible idiots and greedy special interests, she dropped out without even facing a single primary. It was her single greatest act of courage since being bused across the Mason-Dixon line from Berkeley into Thousand Oaks. Sadly, she just wasn’t bused far enough.

What Are They Hiding?

What Are They Hiding? Dems Schedule Impeachment Hearing for Spygate Report Release Date
Excerpt: When House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked the House Judiciary Committee to proceed with articles of impeachment, she also announced that the next impeachment hearing will take place next Monday, December 9. Coincidentally, that is the same day Inspector General Michael Horowitz will release his report on whether or not the Department of Justice abused its power in investigating members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. Those who have been following Spygate don't think this is a coincidence at all "Didn’t see that coming: House to hold next impeachment hearing Monday ... while IG report is being released," Andrew C. McCarthy, contributing editor at National Review and author of Ball of Collusion: The Plot to Rig an Election and Destroy a Presidency, tweeted on Thursday.

I talked to an IT professional, who told me he didn’t like Trump, didn’t vote for him last time. He said both his pay and his investments are way up compared to under Obama. He’s afraid any of the Democrats will make that go away, so he’s going to hold his nose and vote for Trump this time.

The Increasing Weaponization of Public Opinion by Dick Morris

The Increasing Weaponization of Public Opinion by Dick Morris
io o Excerpt: Such was the power of global public opinion one hundred years ago. But it's very different now. We are watching as the British monarchy, the Kremlin autocracy, and the authoritarian government in China are each hobbled by global public opinion, unable to ignore its devastating political effect. o09iIn the U.K., a member of the royal family — the Queen's younger son — has been laid low by a public outraged by his involvement with Jeffrey Epstein and his public debauchery on his private island in the Caribbean. (I'm not a Morris fan, but this is worth reading. ~Bob)

Democratic Law Professor: It Is Wrong to Impeach Trump Just Because You're All Mad

Democratic Law Professor: It Is Wrong to Impeach Trump Just Because You're All Mad
Excerpt: Speaking during a House Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday morning, George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley called out Democrats and fellow members of the panel for moving forward with impeachment because "everyone is mad." “I get it. You're mad. The president's mad. My Republican friends are mad. My Democratic friends are mad. My wife is mad. My kids are mad. Even my dog seems mad and Luna is a golden-doodle and they don't get mad. So, we're all mad. Where has it taken us? Will a slipshod impeachment make us less mad or will it only give an invitation for the madness to follow in every future administration? That is why this is wrong...it's wrong because this is not how you impeach an American president," Turley argued, adding that the evidence Democrats are using is severely lacking, the process is rushed and that a number of witnesses haven't been subpoenaed. "I am concerned about lowering impeachment standards to fit a paucity of evidence and an abundance of anger. If the House proceeds solely on the Ukrainian allegations, this impeachment would stand out among modern impeachments as the shortest proceeding, with the thinnest evidentiary record, and the narrowest grounds ever used to impeach a president. That does not bode well for future presidents who are working in a country often sharply and, at times, bitterly divided,” he said.

Random Thoughts for December


Random Thoughts for December 2019
By Robert A. Hall
Feel free to post or forward.  

If you wonder why I send so many emails with items on Thursday and Friday, it’s because Monday through Wednesday, my work, commute, medical routine and sleep schedules leave me almost zero time to touch the computer, so by Wednesday night, I often have 200 to 250 unread emails. Many of which I have to just delete.

I was working on email on a recent Thursday when I had a call. Fellow says, “Bob Hall?” “Yes.” “At 709 Harrington…” “Who’s calling?” “I’m Mr. Paul Something. I’m calling from the Treasury Department.” “What would the Treasury want with me?” “We have received a check for you from the Mega-Millions lottery you won.” “This is a scam. Go the fuck away, asshole.” Caught me by surprise, or I’d have been more inventive.

The Law of History: Victors are ruthless. Losers are slaves.

Grief can be a fatal disease.

Our country is like a ship in trouble. The officers are saying everything’s fine, but the crew is handing out lifejackets as a “precaution.”

Andrew Cuomo reportedly said that we didn’t have hurricanes before climate change. This is the kind of guy who gives idiots a bad name. The American Meteorological Society reports that there has been no increase in the number or intensity of hurricanes hitting the US mainland since 1900. https://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/10.1175/BAMS-D-17-0184.1

The rewards for being first with a good idea are at least an order of magnitude higher than for being second.

The media continue to say they are non-biased, but they don’t try to hide it anymore. Just as Stalin’s communist newspaper was palled Pravda (Truth).

Socialism will tolerate no God but the state.

I’m almost the only man in our church who wears a coat and tie on Sunday. I don’t do it for God, or the pastor, or the congregation. When I was a boy, my grandmother took me to church every Sunday. I was always dressed up, and I sat or stood and paid attention to the service, or she had me by the earlobe. No coloring books, no toys. So, I know if I don’t dress on Sunday, she will come up out of the grave, grab me by the earlobe, and march me home to change.

People think of welfare as something that they get free. It is not. The cost is the recipient’s pride, independence and self-respect.

From the ‘Net: I’m a Vietnam vet. I had to welcome myself home.

Lately, our church has been praying for third world countries. We’ve done Nigeria and Cuba. I suggested California?

Some people are fonts of wisdom. Not founts, fonts. Their thoughts are as murky as black ink.

Good men and good whisky need to be aged.

Flags seem to be at haft mast all the time now, because if someone dies, and you don’t lower the flag, some group in our hyper-sensitive society gets loudly offended. When I croak, keep the flag up. I struggled all my life to keep it flying high.

I want to get a printed, reusable bag that says, “My shoplifting bag,” and see how many people follow me around Walmart.

A couple of months ago, I said I got “Picky No More” dog food, but our pup wasn’t interested. To be fair, it’s now his favorite dry dog food.

Some unattractive women are made beautiful by their personalities. And some attractive women are made ugly by their personalities.

If global warming was the threat they say it is, they wouldn’t have to cherry pick their facts, lie, or start counting at a point in time that helps their case.

If you try to do everything for everybody, you will do nothing for anybody.

You can have freedom and prosperity or you can have socialism. Your choice.

Take joy when you can, because sorrow will come regardless. 

Patch on my VA fleece: “The price of freedom may be seen at any VA hospital.”

9/11 was the most successful small unit operation in history. They lost, what, 11 guys? We lost almost 3000 people and they did billions of dollars in damage to our economy. Since then Muslims have achieved almost all their goals. Open immigration without vetting. Any criticism of Islam or Sharia law is shamed as “Islamophobia.” Mosques preaching hatred and violence continue to be built in America in numbers. Every demand is agreed to from footbaths in schools and airports to Muslims in Congress attacking America. Suggesting that multiple wives, genital mutilation of young girls or treating women as half the value of a man are wrong is condemned as Islamophobic. The attackers on 9/11 could not have dreamed of the advance of the Islamic state theocracy they were achieving. It’s like Tojo or Hitler being elected president in 1952.

Democrats used to brag they were the party of working people. Now they are the party of non-working people.

The first rule for a bankruptcy lawyer. Get paid upfront.

Progressives compulsion to be humane to the few results in long-term inhumanity to the many.

It has come to this: If you oppose breaking the law, Democrats say you are racist.

Computers and old men can’t be hurried.

Never bet into a possible lock.

Atheism is cold comfort in old age.

Since FBI statistics show that blacks are 13 times more likely to commit murder than whites, I expect the left will soon say the laws against murder are racist.

If Middle Earth had progressives, they would insist that a large group of illegal Orc immigrants be settled in the Shire and the hobbits would be required to provide them with shelter, medical care, clothing, food, and education for the little Orcs. Any hobbit who complained would be shunned as “Orcaphobic,” and driven out of the Shire.

Leftists insist (and I agree) that you cannot judge all blacks, Hispanics and Muslims from the actions of a few. But they firmly believe that they can judge all whites, gun owners and Christians from the actions of a few.

The reason you get so many robo calls on your home and on cell phones is that they pay off big to the scammers, because a great many simple-minded shits are taken in by the scams.

In boot camp I was told Marines don’t use umbrellas, because they are the sign of appeasement (Chamberlin). Every old Marine I know avoids carrying one. I’m now told the CMC has approved men using them. A sure sign the country is lost.

Most people’s troubles are self-created.

An emergency is when someone is likely to die if action is not taken. Everything else is just a problem.

I wouldn’t trust the TV weatherman if he told me how yesterday’s weather was.

People are more likely to remember what you haven’t done than what you’ve done. Unless you’ve done something memorably stupid.

I read a study that says that people who talk to themselves while they work focus better. I’m not crazy after all!

You will discover that the more you learn, the less you know.

Never complain to your wife. She will find a way to make it your fault. You: “The drought in California is terrible.” Her: “Well, if you hadn’t left the garden hose on last summer, we’d have plenty of water to send them.”

To find out of you have a strong marriage, put up a live Christmas Tree together.
