Astute students of history understand that government agencies often further their own interests and not the administration they are designated to serve. Seldom is the genuine national security advanced when bureaucrats pledge their loyalty to their respective fiefdoms of projecting influence and power. Absent in this supremacy struggle equation is the abstract notion that state legitimacy is founded upon the will and consent of the people. Such a quaint concept does not reflect a chapter in the training manual that breeds the spooks who operate as above the law and unaccountable super spies. Continue reading

To say that some people dislike Donald Trump may well be the understatement of the year. It’s hard to imagine any duly elected president seeing so many protests in his first two months in office, yet here we are.
President Ronald Reagan said: “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.” Actor and former president of the National Rifle Association Charlton Heston, who called himself a “Kennedy Democrat,” switched to the Republican Party after the 1960s.
On racial preferences, JFK, in 1963, said he opposed them: “I don’t think that is the generally held view, at least as I understand it, of the Negro community, that there is some compensation due for the lost years, particularly in the field of education. What I think they would like is to see their children well-educated so that they could hold jobs and have their children accepted and have themselves accepted as equal members of the community. So I don’t think we can undo the past. In fact, the past is going to be with us for a good many years in uneducated men and women who lost their chance for a decent education. We have to do the best we can now. That is what we are trying to do. I don’t think quotas are a good idea. I think it is a mistake to begin to assign quotas on the basis of religion or race or color, or nationality.
John McCain Becomes Critic in Chief of the Trump Administration … Senator John McCain has long had a reputation as a political maverick. But with the rise of a president who has vowed to shatter the old order, Mr. McCain has emerged as an outspoken defender of longstanding Republican verities on foreign policy and as one of his party’s most biting critics of the new commander in chief. – New York Times
Why doesn’t President Trump just confront McCain on his denials that captured troops were left behind in Vietnam? That would be one way to go after McCain and the idea that he is an honorable man. What kind of individual argues for 50 years that there are no prisoners in Vietnam post-war when there probably were at least a thousand or more?
For decades, McCain has been in the forefront of denying that Hanoi had prisoners it hadn’t released at the end of the war. Hanoi actually kept these troops as bargaining chips subject to further negotiations that never occurred. Now, with both Hanoi and Washington denying such left-behind troops, their chances of their freedom has dwindled to virtually nothing. Continue reading
Yes, 1952 was a great year. In 1952, the musical “Pal Joey” which later became a movie, opened on Broadway and ran for 542 performances. That year one of the best detective series, “Dragnet” premiered on television. Jack Webb was the epitome of the tough-as-nails detective Sergeant Joe Friday. We also had an official visit from one of the great statesmen of the 20th century, Winston Churchill. Ted Williams of baseball fame was called back into service with the US Marine Corps. If you are a movie buff, as I am, you may recall that Jimmy Stewart starred in “The Greatest Show On Earth” that year. Sadly, this year, 2017, will be the last for the Ringling Brothers/Barnum and Bailey Circus due to failing attendance. Continue reading
The family of an illegal immigrant arrested during a recent roundup of criminal aliens seems shocked that immigration laws are being enforced.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers arrested Miguel Angel Torres, an illegal immigrant living in Austin, Texas, for the past fourteen years, during the recent Operation Cross Check roundup of criminal aliens. It appears immigration officers arrested Torres while they were looking for his brother-in-law, a previously deported illegal alien, the Texas Tribune reported. Continue reading
The City of Phoenix has declined the adoption of a sanctuary policy
The Phoenix City Council turned down a plan to become a sanctuary city, citing that the state’s 2010 immigration law, SB1070, which bans any jurisdiction from providing a safe haven to illegal aliens, as the Associated Press reported.
Phoenix’s Democrat Mayor Greg Stanton made the motion to deny the City from becoming a sanctuary jurisdiction, citing the 2010 immigration law, but then denounced President Donald Trump’s efforts of deporting criminal illegal immigrants. Continue reading
Despite media reports of a massive crackdown by President Trump on illegal immigrants, just a tiny percentage of the nearly 1 million on the government’s deportation list have been arrested, according to statistics provided to Congress.
The 680 seized in recent sweeps by U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement agents represent just .07 percent of the 950,062 with deportation orders as of May 21, 2016.
Responses to questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee, provided by Thomas D. Homan, currently the acting ICE director, revealed the struggle the agency faces as it moves to deport illegals, many with criminal records and slapped with “final orders of removal” after exhausting their court appeals. Continue reading
Eager to help President Trump complete the 1,954-mile wall on the southern border, lawmakers are considering a financing plan that would tax the money that immigrants send home to Mexico and tap State Department foreign aid to the country. (WOW – it’s about time. TAX it! ~ J.B.) Continue reading
Norma McCorvey became a pro-life advocate, but she finished her fight.
Over the years, our family has had the opportunity to host many interesting guests in our home. In 1995, Norma McCorvey (Roe v. Wade) and Sandra Cano (Doe v. Bolton) spent a Sunday afternoon with us. Continue reading
After 30 years of slanted, biased and false news reporting from major players in the Main Stream Media (MSM) —Americans turn toward more reliable sources—such as citizen journalists writing for Internet news services. Social media features speakers like British speaker Pat Condell telling hungry audiences what’s really happening with the Muslim invasion of Europe.
Whistleblowers such as Julian Assange and Edward Snowden exposed deeper layers of fraud and deception continuing in Washington DC and in Europe. Continue reading
ICE officers arrested and detained 41 criminal illegal immigrants in New York City, New York, which prides itself on being “sanctuary city.”
The criminal aliens detained were part of a targeted arrest operation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency.
Altogether, officers detained 22 illegal immigrants in New York City, 14 in Long Island, two in Rockland County, two in Orange County and one in Putnam County, according to WABC News.
Of the 41 criminal illegal immigrants, one was involved with the MS-13 gang, a criminal multinational syndicate. Many others were previously charged with rape of children, burglaries, sex crimes, drunk driving and drug distribution. Continue reading
California Can’t Afford to Fix Dams, But They Want to Give Universal Healthcare to Illegal Aliens
The land of Pelosi, fruits and nuts has a state debt that is spiraling out of control (over a trillion dollars), they are so short on water they have to buy much of it from neighboring states and they have a healthcare industry that is on the brink of collapse due to the ever burgeoning population of illegal aliens. (Or as Governor Moonbeam would say “undocumented workers”.) Continue reading
One month into the new administration, and a progressive somewhere has actually been able to locate and read a copy of the Constitution. Then, in a fit of magical thinking, they imagine a scenario where the man they hate for beating their corrupt champion of the deep state is kicked out of office for being an alpha male.
Fiction is dead. Reality has kicked its ass. ~ Pairadimes

The 89th showing of the Academy Awards is coming up on February 26th. It is important that we, the “deplorables”, show the likes of Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Alec Baldwin, Cher, Barbra Streisand, Ashley Judd, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Bill Maher and the other arrogant hypocrites, that we, the backbone but quiet people of America, are more united than the bitter, unhappy, angry, divisive people of the entertainment industry.
The entertainment industry has the highest incidence of drug use, both illegal and pharmaceutical. They have marketed and promoted so many of the ills that plague our society today and have destroyed so many young lives. Continue reading
“Life is a fight, a fight to stay alive and a fight to keep others and government from taking your life or your liberty from you. Acknowledge that fact and you might just survive as a free man. Those awash in self-pity and think of themselves as victims will never be free and they will be a heavy burden on the rest of society.” ~ Ron Ewart
In the year 1620 and beyond, they crossed the Atlantic in sailing ships to get to America and freedom. The journey could take anywhere from six to 12 weeks to make the crossing, depending on the winds. Life aboard ship was primitive at best. Firsthand accounts speak of illness, cramped quarters, food and water rations. They had to endure scurvy, diphtheria, dysentery and seasickness. They were at the mercy of the captain, ship owners ….. and the sea. Many of them died during the passage. Because the journey was so long, when passengers died, their bodies were thrown overboard because there was no way to store them on the ship. The bones of thousands of Pilgrims are held forever in the bosom of the Atlantic Ocean, on their failed journey to freedom. Continue reading
It should be clear to just about everyone now that President Trump faces incredible opposition, both legal and illegal, from multiple institutions. One is the mostly liberal mass media, particularly major newspapers and TV and cable channels. Very little can be done about this. The very strong, well funded Democrats still in agonizing pain from the Hillary defeat has seen that the path to defeating and possibly impeaching Trump is the biased media. It is also being nourished by countless federal employees opposed to Trump giving countless damaging leaks to the press. Continue reading
“And I’ll leave you with one set of numbers that I found today, which is just an absolute for this whole thing. In 2015, Wall Street Bonuses, not regular compensation, bonuses, seven years after they were bailed out with the public purse, totaled $29.4 billion dollars. Total compensation paid to every single person in this country who makes minimum wage totaled $14 billion…
The era of neo-liberalism is over. The era of neo-nationalism has just begun.” ~ Mark Blyth
Publisher’s NOTE: Mr. Newby is a well respected author who has penned many books, of which the image of the book cover below was published by Kettle Moraine Publications in the Winter of 2012. What you are about to read will raise your eyebrows and the question, “What does this have to do with Education?” Mr. Newby’s offering today will put off many of you, while it will enlighten others… but there is a purpose, as he lays the groundwork for who controls the book publishing world for the Public School System in America today. As his bio will show at the end of this column, Frank C. Newby knows of what he speaks.

Why would anyone in their right mind write an article that defies all known Christian concepts and teachings? Why would I want to make some readers angry enough to want me, “To Burn in Hell?“
The answer is, today in our society, there are organizations that are working very hard to change the way we live, think and learn. To paraphrase a line from Robert Ingersoll, written in 1893. “Someone has to do it, so it might as well be me.” I will present you with the truth. Do with it what you wish.
If you read this article, you run the very real risk of having your beliefs shaken to their very foundations. The normal life today allows very little time to learn and question. Survival in the twenty first century is a mind numbing experience. You believe you are very religious. You get up each Sunday morning and trudge off to church. You are permitted to place your contribution in that little, felt lined plate, listen to an hour of mindless platitudes and voila! You have your fix for another week. Did you ever ask yourself on Monday afternoon, what message the preacher had given you on Sunday morning? If you honestly remember any portion of the sermon, it would be a miracle. If you do not really remember, you are a typically brainwashed human being, immersed in religious beliefs. You are there not because it is right but because it is expected. Continue reading
Lady Liberty had a single tear trickle down Her cheek on January 27th as Her breasts heaved with happiness and relief that a U.S. President, Donald Trump, was finally implementing a sound, logical and sane common-sense approach to who receives visas and permission to enter the United States. However, Lady Liberty cried profusely, upon learning that President Trump’s ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations was only temporary. Continue reading
The burning question facing every European country in 2017: can their countries and cultures survive endless refugee immigration from the ever-burgeoning Third World?
The salient question being ignored vs. not being asked in America, Canada or Australia: how will these homelands survive the projected 100,000,000 (million) refugees flooding into America within 30 years; 10,000,000 projected for Canada and another 10 million projected for Australia?

That infamous “community organizer” Barry Sotero, aka Barack Obama, is on the march again, seeking to tear down what he was not able to on his first go-round and making sure no one rebuilds on the Marxist rubble he created. He is using a non-profit 501c4 organization called Organizing for Action to do it.
While most presidents leave the office of president to the person that follows them, Mr. Obama has no intention of doing that. If he couldn’t destroy the country while he was in office then his next attempt will be to try to destroy the man who is trying to save it.
An article by Paul Sperry in the New York Times on February 11th explains how he plans to do just that. Mr. Sperry noted in his article that Comrade Obama was encouraged by the spate of anti-Trump protests that “spontaneously” erupted across the country (and do you wonder who paid for all of them)? Mr. Sperry observed: “Yes, Obama has an army of agitators, numbering more than 30,000–who will fight his Republican successor at every turn of his historic presidency. And Obama will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House. In what’s shaping up to be a highly unusual post-presidency, Obama isn’t just staying behind in Washington. He’s working…to set up what will effectively be a shadow government (emphasis mine) to not only protect his threatened legacy, but to sabotage the incoming administration and its popular ‘America First’ agenda.” Continue reading
Ordinary black people cannot afford to go along with the liberal agenda that calls for undermining police authority. That agenda makes for more black crime victims. Let’s look at what works and what doesn’t work.
In 1990, New York City adopted the practice in which its police officers might stop and question a pedestrian. If there was suspicion, they would frisk the person for weapons and other contraband. This practice, well within the law, is known as a Terry stop. After two decades of this proactive police program, New York City’s homicides fell from over 2,200 per year to about 300. Blacks were the major beneficiaries of proactive policing. According to Manhattan Institute scholar Heather Mac Donald — author of “The War on Cops” — seeing as black males are the majority of New York City’s homicide victims, more than 10,000 blacks are alive today who would not be had it not been for proactive policing.

I know that many of you, by now anyway, are at least aware of the situation in Northern California and the crisis at the dam located in Oroville, California. Before I go into the meat and potatoes of this, I need to provide a little background.
When I was 10 or 11 I moved from San Jose, California to Oroville, just south of the dam that was designed to both store, and regulate the flow of water from the tributaries feeding into the Feather River. I used to fish off the face of the dam, as well as on a peninsula that extended parallel to the inlet to the spillway. I can’t count the times I went fishing on the lake itself, or went waterskiing or tubing on the lake. So I am quite familiar with the layout; although not the particulars of the construction of the dam itself. Continue reading
Twenty Cool Uses Of Coca-Cola
While many of us love to drink an ice cold Coca-Cola, did you know that Coke can be used in a wide variety of ways other than mere consumption?
1. Pest Killer
If you’re searching for a new, original, and effective way to rid your property of pests, pour Coca-Cola into a small bowl and place it near your outdoor flowers and plants. The smell of this powerful soft drink will attract pests, prompting them to taste the cola, thus resulting in death by acidity. Continue reading
The 9th Circuit Court is at it again, showing that they are, as most of us are well aware, a leftist activist court for which the Constitution means nothing. The nutty ninth overturned the ruling of a lower court which found that a cooling off period after the lawful purchase of a firearm was an infringement on the Second Amendment.
Apparently the 9th Circuit sees the Second Amendment and the pesky Constitution as cumbersome impediments in their crusade to overhaul the United States in their leftist image. Continue reading
What will be the Consequences?
Since President Trump (it’s nice for the first time in over eight years to be able to say that word, ‘President‘) signed his Executive Order dealing with the blockage of ‘refugees’ from 7 Nations – all hell seems to have broken loose… and it’s about time, BUT…
Deportations which have been getting swept under the rug for years, if not decades are beginning to happen, yet no thanks to the 9th Circuit Court – unvetted, questionable individuals are being allowed to not only enter the country, but to come and go as they please. Who are they? What are they? What do they represent? What do they REALLY want? Continue reading
In early 2005, I came across a posting which remains accurate and on target to this date. It would appear according to the website, that the Invaders and the Consulates in America, took a tremendous amount of heat for the posting you are about to review – and had it removed – but it miraculously popped up again. You will want to follow the ‘Continue Reading’ link (in Spanish) to view the entire comic book ~ Publisher
The following is the Mexican Government’s “disclaimer” – with their tongue in their cheeks, so to speak.
This consular protection guide is not promoting the crossing [of the border] of Mexicans without legal documentation required by the government of the United States; its objective is to make known the risks implied and to inform about the rights of migrants regardless of their legal residence.

When the Trump administration released its travel ban executive order, they said they didn’t give any warning because people from the seven countries would begin pouring in to beat the start date.
For the first 14 days of the Trump administration, roughly 11% of all refugees entering the country came from the seven countries on the executive order: Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen.
In the eight days since the Judge improperly halted the executive order, 72% of all refugees now hail from these seven countries. Trump was exactly right. They are pouring in.
More than 1,050 refugees from these terror hotbeds were allowed into the United States with minimal-to-no vetting because a Federal judge in Seattle decided he knew more about foreign policy than the President.
Late last night, a Federal Judge in Virginia became the latest judge to block Trump’s executive order. He called it a “Muslim ban,” even though 87% of the world’s Muslims are unaffected. So even if the White House wins the case in Seattle, they will still be blocked in Virginia. (Continue Reading…)
