Category Archives: Eye on America

The title of this category says it all. Of course, we could have called it “Watch on the Potomac” – but then we decided to develop a category for that subject anyway. In pre-war Germany – it was called “the Rhine.” Same difference – different time, different geographical region.

MilesTones: Yes You’re The Man-OOPS-A Forbidden Word!

NOThis entire story can only be passed on by MilesTones to process since the whole “thought” process behind it is so ridiculous it can only be covered by that department that specializes in a cocked-eyebrow view of the news.

Insanity is not only inherited but it is contagious! We are in the midst of a deadly plague that is rampaging throughout the land, infecting all who are exposed to it. One cannot get away from the contamination, even if we stop watching the news or reading the papers, it is still there. The hardest hit areas are the schools, colleges and universities.

The Not So Great Society

LBJ_niggersDonald Trump was in Wisconsin Tuesday, where he gave an impassioned speech highlighting the growing problem of poverty and violence rampant in many inner city black communities today. Trump called for law and order after the weekend of rioting in Milwaukee. He declared that the “war on police” was ultimately a “war on all peaceful citizens.” He also laid blame for the culture of endemic poverty and lawlessness squarely where it belongs: on the Democrats. Focusing on Clinton he said, “Hillary Clinton-backed policies are responsible for the problems in the inner cities today and a vote for her is a vote for another generation of poverty, high crime, and lost opportunities. I care too much about my country to let this happen.”

The Scam Wall Street Learned From the Mafia

How America’s biggest banks took part in a nationwide bid-rigging conspiracy – until they were caught on tape

Editor’s NOTE: What you are about to read is just over four years old – but it could have been written last night. What Taibbi published back in the Fall of 2012 is the story of Wall Street and Politics for ALL time. Small time players go to jail while the BIG crooks laugh and pour another snifter of Cognac in celebration. We are now into the final months of the 2016 (S)election season and these same Wall Street shysters are committing the same fraud on behalf of at least one of the Presidential candidates – much of it through HER Foundation – along with her Foreign Donors.

The Bosses of the Senate

“This cartoon by Joseph Keppler, who was the, both the editor and main cartoonist for Puck, which became one of, a very popular satirical weeklies in the post-Civil War period, expresses a general public discontent and concern about the growing impact and power of large businesses in the United States in the Gilded Age, particularly as this indicates, by businesses that have become monopolies in one way or another, and their control over the political process.

The_Bosses_of_the_Senate_by_Joseph_KepplerThis is the period of time when the Senate is beginning to be conceived of as a millionaire’s club, it’s not quite called that yet, but it’s getting there, and certainly the sort of power and influence of business has become palatable.

Furious Sheep

If you are baffled about what to do this election season on voting, see if this might engage you a bit. ~ Angie C.

penny2In all my years of watching politics in the US, never have I seen a presidential election generate such overwhelmingly negative emotions. Everyone hates Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, or, increasingly, both of them. This is creating a severe psychological problem for many people: they want to tell their friends and the world that Clinton is mentally unstable and a crook, but they are conflicted because they realize that by so doing they would be supporting Trump. Or they want to tell everyone what a vulgar, narcissistic, egotistical blowhard Trump is, but they are conflicted because they realize that by so doing they would be supporting Clinton. Some are abandoning the two-party duopoly in favor of minor parties, ready to vote for Jill Stein the Green or Gary Johnson the Libertarian, but are conflicted because voting for Stein would take votes away from Clinton the crook and thus support Trump the blowhard, while voting for Johnson would take votes away from Trump the blowhard and thus support Clinton the crook. There is just no winning! Or is there? Continue reading

The U.S. Department of Justice gave $342,168,401 in grant money to 10 “sanctuary” states and cities that shield illegal aliens, even violent ones, from deportation by refusing to cooperate with federal immigration officials, according to a Judicial Watch report.

In a recent memorandum to the Office of Justice Programs (OJP), DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz revealed that at least 10 state and local jurisdictions that receive grants from the OJP and Office of Violence against Women (OVW) have policies limiting or effectively precluding local officials’ cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“Among them is Connecticut, a trailblazer in the sanctuary movement that received more than $69 million in grants from the DOJ,” said Judicial Watch. Continue reading

Pat Metheny with Herbie Hancock ~ Cantalope Island

Guitarist and composer Pat Metheny was born on August 12th, 1954 in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. The 15-year-old Metheny was introduced to the world of professional jazz after winning a Down Beat scholarship to a one-week jazz program in New York City. Metheny released the classic jazz fusion LP Bright Size Life when he was only 21. His most recent album is 2014’s Kin, recorded with his newest band, Unity Group.

Metheny and pianist Herbie Hancock perform a fantastic rendition of Hancock’s composition “Cantaloupe Island.”

Remembering Mike Vanderboegh

nybergflaggdhsMike Vanderboegh has passed away. We knew this was coming, but it’s still bracing and reflective at the same time. Since I’m going to link a number of articles and commentaries at the end, I see no point in recapitulating what’s already been said. Instead, I have some (what I hope to be) unique reflections to make about Mike.

I’ve heard it said that such-and-such a man had “redeeming qualities.” Hogwash. Men don’t have redeeming qualities. Men are themselves redeemed, or they are lost. The God-man Christ Jesus saves men or they perish without Christ but with all of the punishments due to them, and all men are under judgment. Continue reading

Leaked Medical Reports Show Her BRAIN DAMAGE, Sources CONFIRMED

Many Unconfirmed Reports Continue To Surround Hillary’s Medical History

Many Unconfirmed Reports Continue To Surround Hillary’s Medical History

For many years, rumors surrounding Hillary Clinton’s health would surface but then they would magically disappear, which is something the Clinton’s are good at making happen. We have seen dozens of reports signaling Hillary Clinton has been in and out of the hospital since 2007 with seizures, a concussion, and a brain clot. While this photo is unconfirmed, we are working to confirm that this is in fact Hillary Clinton.

When Hillary Clinton announced she was running for president in 2015, many began to question if she was fit and mentally stable enough to endure a long campaign and even a presidency. The short answer is no, but many sources have now offered major information concerning her health. Continue reading

Nine Major Veterans Affairs FAILURES

veterans_va

More than a half million veterans still must wait at least a month to see a VA doctor, and even when they do manage to get an appointment, the care they receive is not always up to the standards patients expect to see in the private sector. (Graeme Jennings/Examiner)

The Department of Veterans Affairs has never fully recovered from the firestorm of criticism it received after a whistleblower revealed a nationwide scheme to cover up long delays in healthcare in 2014.

The discovery that 110 VA facilities had used secret patient waiting lists to cover up veterans’ long wait times led to the ouster of VA Secretary Eric Shinseki, but only three employees involved in the manipulation were fired. Continue reading

WikiLeaks Drops New Hillary Email, Labeled ‘Tick-Tock on Libya

~ Forewords ~
I have known this information for years. I have legitimate sources. Hillary started ISIS to gain the power to run for Presidency. Ambassador Stevens knew this info and was killed by Hillary because of it. Those who vote for Hillary are either lost, evil, stupid, ignorant or all of these.

U.S. Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton speaks at the 2007 "Take Back America" conference in WashingtonA few days ago conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh predicted that WikiLeaks would soon publish a Hillary Clinton email regarding her plan for the Benghazi consulate at the time of her tenure as Sec-State.

Clint Eastwood slams ‘pussy generation‘ of being over-sensitive to racism and defends Trump in new interview

In the interview published Wednesday, the actor-director hailed Trump as a foe of political correctness and ‘the kiss-ass generation.’ Continue reading

Clinton Cash: Khizr Khan’s Deep Legal, Financial Connections to Saudi Arabia, Hillary’s Clinton Foundation Tie Terror, Immigration, Email Scandals Together

Khizr KhanKhizr Khan, the Muslim Gold Star father that the mainstream media and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been using to criticize Donald J. Trump, has deep ties to the government of Saudi Arabia – and to international Islamist investors through his own law firm. In addition to those ties to the wealthy Islamist nation, Khan also has ties to controversial immigration programs that wealthy foreigners can use to essentially buy their way into the United States – and has deep ties to the “Clinton Cash” narrative through the Clinton Foundation.

Adams: EVERYTHING is Rigged

Medicine, science, elections, the media, money, education, search engines, social media… you are living in a fabricated fairy tale

Only 1 out of 3 Americans know the three branches of government

left_hanging_flag_4With election season heating up in earnest, and political debates breaking out nationwide, we would do well to remember an often overlooked but troubling survey, published by the Annenberg Public Policy Center (APPC) of the University of Pennsylvania in September 2014. That study found that U.S. residents show an astonishing lack of understanding of the basics of how their government functions. Indeed, more than one in three respondents was unable to name even a single branch of the U.S. government.

The survey of 1,416 adults in the United States was conducted by phone between July 8 and 14, 2014. It was released on Constitution Day, September 17. Continue reading

The REAL Americans! What Do They Believe?

old-dogTo be a real American, one must understand the history of the different kinds of governments, and insist on lawful protections for the people and their assets. That sentence is the epitome of freedom from tyranny, because history has documented how tyrannical most governments have been to their constituents.

Unless the children are raised up with this knowledge being the focus of their attention, sooner or later they will fall prey to demented desires and lean toward democracy because they want to make the world to suit them. Continue reading

This Election Is NOT About a President – It Is About Saving a Nation Bound For HELL!

flag_distressWhat America is watching is the forces of evil administrations who desire a globalist society. From the Bush’s, the Clinton’s and their Foundation that is the mega donor to sustainable development agenda 21 to Heidi and Ted Cruz who have diligently worked under the Bush administration to push it forward.

Today, America is awake and through the brash tone of Donald J. Trump their eyes are wide open and they see everything. Those that love their country and believe it is home will never bow down to a global elite who want to disarm them of their constitution and their right to thrive in their own home towns! It is a shame to watch the tyranny of the progressive agenda and their goals of dismantling this great nation in order to turn it over to a world, global, international (whatever word they are now using) government to serve their own elitist agenda!

Hillary Clinton is in Deep Trouble – “Hordes of Wall Street Executives” Descend Upon Philly

Neither one is able

Political pundits throughout the land are tripping over each other to compose the latest bland, uninsightful screed proclaiming the death of the Republican Party. This makes sense, because the primary purpose of a political pundit is to state the obvious years after it’s already become established fact to everyone actually paying attention.

Yes, of course, Trump winning the GOP nomination marks the end of the party as we know it. After all, some neocons are already publicly and actively throwing their support behind Hillary. While this undoubtably represents a major turning point in U.S. political history, many pundits have yet to appreciate that the exact same thing is happening within the Democratic Party. It’s just not completely obvious yet. Continue reading

Donald Trump on Tuesday attacked Hillary Clinton for her stance on trade in general and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) in particular. (Photo: Reuters)

Laying bare how dangerous it could be for Democrats to ignore populist opposition to corporate-friendly “free trade” deals, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday attacked Hillary Clinton for her stance on trade in general and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) in particular.

Speaking in Monessen, Pennsylvania, Trump said the “TPP would be the death blow for American manufacturing” and vowed to “withdraw” the U.S. from the agreement.

He said Clinton took “a leading part” in drafting the 12-nation deal, noting that the former secretary of state “praised or pushed the TPP on 45 separate occasions, and even called it the ‘gold standard,'” according to prepared remarks. Continue reading

Obama’s tantrum a striking display of failed leadership

obama03If it is true that the best defense is a good offense, President Obama should be celebrating in the end zone now. Obviously furious over criticism that his anti-terror policies are weak and that the Orlando slaughter proves it, he went on a televised tirade to let America know he’s mad as hell and not going to take it anymore.

NOTE: The following video is complete in Bathroom Barry’s comments regarding the mass “shooting” in Orlando last weekend – BUT – his personal attack begins at about 13:00 minutes. ~ J.B.

He laid waste to a field of straw men, cable-TV pundits and the always-evil “partisan rhetoric,” by which he means anyone who disagrees with him. It was a striking display of personal anger and pent-up grievances — and a total failure of leadership during a national crisis. Continue reading
