I used to watch a lot of crime shows on TV and I recall watching one once in which a detective was talking about the modus operandi of cult leaders. The detective was saying that cult leaders are, more often than not, charismatic and well spoken, and they prey upon the sentiments and weaknesses of those whom they wish to seduce into their cult. By saying things that people want to hear these cult leaders lure people into following them; often to their later regret. Jonestown is a perfect example; I’m sure had Jim Jones told people at the very beginning that if they followed him he was going to tell them to drink poisoned Kool Aid the people would not have so readily followed him.

Out of the 92, only about 5 or 6 are less than $225,000.00
Any of these listed your favorite companies? Must have some really good stuff to tell the audience. Wonder what it was? Good for her. She is a money making machine.
The media’s going nuts that Hillary Clinton took three big paychecks for three speeches at Goldman Sachs. At $225,000 a pop – that’s pretty good scratch – but it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
She’s been very, very busy, raking in millions in a three-year stretch since she left her post as the Secretary of State. Continue reading
Hillary Promises a Trillion Dollars in New Taxes if Elected
Taking that kind money out of the economy and putting it into the hands of government bureaucrats will tank the economy. But of course, with so many members of the voting pubic not paying income taxes, this may actually be an attractive proposition to them… (Continue to full article)
Pay Up: Americans Spend More on Taxes Than on Food, Clothing, Shelter
Arguments can be made that the tax bill is too high or too low, but in order to have an honest discussion, it’s important for taxpayers to understand the cost of government. Tax Freedom Day helps people relate to that cost… (Continue to full article)
In yesterday’s paper there was an article, that after reading it, I’m lucky I didn’t have a heart attack or stroke; that’s how high my blood pressure spiked. I’m still angry, but my emotions have settled down enough to let me coherently focus on unscrambling the raw anger and channeling it into what you are about to read.
First, a bit of background. It seems that one Carlos Moore, an African-American attorney from Grenada, Mississippi has filed a lawsuit against the State of Mississippi regarding the State Flag. Mississippi has flown the same flag since 1894, that flag consisting of three horizontal stripes; blue, white and red, with a smaller Confederate Battle Flag, or St. John’s Cross, in the upper left hand corner. Moore is asking District Judge Carlton Reeves to declare the flag an unconstitutional relic of slavery. Continue reading
See you at Sundown.
I played a lot of gigs, thanks to you,
For writin’ all the songs you used to do,
Diana was my favorite,
I played it everywhere I used to play.
Then there was Mama Tried,

Silver Wings got em huggin on the floor,
I loved singin that one,
Durin’ it no one would walk out the door.
Yes Diana was my favorite,
I played it everywhere I used to play.
Then there was Mama Tried.
It got em’ putin’ drinks up on the stage
Ramblin’ Fever got em dancin’ awful hard.
Well Goodbye Mr. Haggard.
Just one more thing kinda personal…
Thank you for signin’ my Martin Owner’s card.
Adios Mr. Haggard
God Bless you and your’s – time ta’ pick that Sunburst ‘Tele’for the Lord.

With 300 million guns in America, the establishment must find away around the the obvious means that Americans can defend themselves against the encroaching tyranny. And the criminal elite running this country have found a way around the obvious barriers. The solution is simple, simply take a page out of the old Soviet Union’s manual for political repression.
For decades, the majority of the workers of America could best be portrayed in the following manner:
Americans were taught by the Mainstream Media to not question authority. Corporate controlled news became gospel of truth for the majority of Americans…
The Supreme Court ruled against a challenge to a decades-long practice used in drawing political maps, saying states may continue to divide legislative seats according to total population rather than limiting representation to citizens or voters.
The decision is a blow to conservative activists who argued the Constitution forbids counting immigrants or prisoners who lack the right to vote. The plaintiffs alleged the Texas legislative map effectively diluted the representation of citizens in rural, Republican-leaning areas in favor of Democratic-trending cities like Houston, where the population includes immigrants and children who are ineligible to vote. The “one-person, one-vote” principle was established in the 1960s, and nearly every state since then has divided legislative districts according to total population. (Read Complete Story)
Sure it’s PhotoShop – but the sentiment is for real!
“All Of A Sudden… Seven Short Years Have Passed!”
Before Obama there was virtually no outlandish presence of Islam in America.
- All of a sudden, Islam is taught in schools. Christianity and the bible are banned in schools.
- All of a sudden we must allow prayer rugs everywhere and allow for Islamic prayer in schools, airports and businesses.
- All of a sudden we must stop serving pork in prisons.
- All of a sudden we are inundated with law suits by Muslims who are offended by American culture.

Believe me, I had no time or desire to read such a lengthy report today, especially about Trump or any of the other school-yard bullies in this campaign.
But that particular sense that I live with 24 hours a day, that I don’t know what I don’t know, gnawed at me. It urged me to read it right away. Am I ever glad I did, for it was MOST revealing!!!
My lack of trust for the so-called experts to contain planetary nuclear disaster, made my profound concern of a nuclear weapons catastrophe and their proliferation, all the more worrisome, after reading what Donald Trump found out. After studying “The Subject” from the writings of the experts for years, it has long been my belief that nuclear weapons will be the cause for the destruction of this planet.
All the more do I have absolutely no doubt about it now.
After reading about Donald Trump’s work on “The Subject” to contain this horror, it has increased my concern a million-fold.
Whatever you do, find the time to read this article. ~ AC
Van Jones was having a tantrum on TV.
The former special adviser for green jobs to Barack Obama, and all-round politically privileged and successful African-American, was demanding that Donald Trump, forthwith, get “passionate” about the black community.
Atone The Donald must for allegedly cozying up to the Klan.
The dust-up was about David Duke, former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Duke had endorsed Trump. Trump was supposed to flagellate for it. He didn’t. When CNN’s Jake Tapper pressed a peeved Trump to disavow the Duke endorsement, Trump hummed and hawed, and seemed generally annoyed at the reprimand. Apparently, he’s not into racial sadomasochism.

Bernie Sanders will not win the Democratic Party nomination. Nevertheless, he has already scored a victory by making socialism popular with Americans, especially young ones. This despite the fact that it is a social system that has failed wherever it has been tried.
There are many reasons for this. In Commentary, Ben Domenech provides a comprehensive guide to them. He also writes:
[T]he opposition to socialism in America has drifted downward.
A 2015 Gallup poll showed that 35 percent of the American populace views socialism favorably. Continue reading
The assassination of police officers is becoming a daily occurrence in America – just like the sexual escapades of American High School teachers (mostly women) who accost impressionable (and hormonal charged) young students.
We live in a very sick society.
Hillary Clinton is campaigning as a guardian of President Barack Obama’s progressive policy accomplishments. In recent weeks, she has called the Affordable Care Act “one of the greatest accomplishments of President Obama, of the Democratic Party, and of our country,” and promised that she is “going to defend Dodd-Frank” and “defend President Obama for taking on Wall Street.”
Meanwhile, however, Clinton’s campaign has been relying on a team of strategists and fundraisers, many of whom spent much of the last seven years as consultants or lobbyists for business interests working to obstruct Obama’s agenda in those two areas. Continue reading
There was a brief time, back in the early days of social media, when I had both a Facebook and a Linked-In account. This was long before the revelations of Edward Snowden. This was long before I came to view the Internet as a technology that – more often that not – is highly detrimental to intelligence, attention span, human interaction, basic courtesy and common sense.

Why in the hell have Americans come to believe the government can order murder of people who have not in fact broken any valid law, let alone by government thugs that have committed I suspect millions of valid statutes meant to control them and prevent government tyranny.
Murder is murder and government sanction does not change this.
And people still believe they are free. Continue reading
Glenn Frey, a founding member and guitarist of the Eagles, died in New York City at age 67, his publicist announced. More on this story
The issue over the idea of natural born citizen is being touted quite a bit leading up to the GOP debate this week and in its wake, too many people are confused and have not looked at what the Constitution says, nor have they taken the time to go back and see how the founders understood the term. They regurgitate what conservative talking heads and such spew out about Supreme Court rulings and cite laws that do not deal with the term natural born citizen. However, the elephant in the room (or the Constitution) that is never addressed is the differences of how there are the apparent differences of citizens in the Constitution itself. Continue reading
I returned from Burns, Oregon last night discouraged and disappointed. Never let it be said that there was any premeditation or strategic planning for the events at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Watching the events unfold as they have, the only conclusion that can be reached is that the occupation of Malheur Headquarters – or the Harney County Resource Center may well be known in history as The Cowboy’s Last Stand. They have the media event down pat but the back half… the planning for the “now what do we do” is demonstrably lacking as the events are rolling along ad hoc. At yesterday’s press conference – which I found out about literally two seconds before I was ready to leave town, we hear that Stephen E. Grasty is preventing the occupiers from using any county facilities for holding a town hall meeting. Now that’s a surprise. Continue reading
As most everybody knows by now, President Barack Obama is expected to issue unilateral executive actions on gun control within days, having been stymied repeatedly by a Congress unwilling to further infringe upon the Second Amendment.
Obama will most likely attempt to expand background checks on firearm purchases by reclassifying more individuals as “gun dealers” who must be licensed and regulated by the feds, as well as other actions that tinker around the edges and do nothing to actually address the alleged problem of “gun violence.” Continue reading
As this nation has unraveled over the past few decades, and more specifically over the past seven years, the time has come to post this video once more. It is too important to ignore any longer.
Trump may or may not be the guy to get ‘er done – but he is right…
Without Apology I am,
A spike in unaccompanied Central American minors crossing illegally into the United States has seen more than 10,000 cross the U.S.-Mexico border in the last two months.
A total of 10,588 unaccompanied children crossed the border in October and November – more than double the 5,129 who crossed during the same two months last year, according to the U.S. Border Patrol.
Meanwhile, the number of family members crossing together has nearly tripled to 12,505. Continue reading
The lesson from the last 20 years of immigration policy is that lawlessness breeds more lawlessness. Once a people or a government decides to normalize one form of lawbreaking, other forms of lawlessness will follow until finally the rule of law itself is in profound jeopardy. Today, we have a constitutional crisis on our hands. President Obama has decided that because Congress has not granted amnesty to millions of illegal aliens living in the U.S., he will do so himself. Let us ponder for a moment just how shameless this assertion of power is. Continue reading
Did I get your attention? Did I offend you; make you mad? Good! It’s about time you know how I’ve been made to feel for quite some time. I don’t have enough fingers and toes to count the times I’ve been told I need to stop saying or writing the things I do because they are offensive; incendiary. I think I can safely say that I have studied the Constitution; the Bill of Rights; and the writings of the Founders much more than 90% of the rest of you, and I don’t recall anywhere in my reading did I find that you have a right to go through life not being offended.
However, the very first amendment to our Constitution protects the right of the people to speak freely. People still believe that they have freedom of speech; but do they … really? Or, have political correctness and a concern over hurting someone else’s feelings limited your right to say whatever you want? If you want my opinion, it seems Winston Churchill was right when he said, “Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people’s idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage.” Continue reading
Congress Furious it Was Spied On
(Waitin’ for Boehner to come back to work and crack the whip! Yeah! Sure! ~ LMAO)
In January 2014, during the scandalous aftermath of Edward Snowden’s NSA snooping revelations, one which revealed the US had been spying on its closest allies for years, Obama banned U.S. eavesdropping on leaders of close friends and allies and promised he would begin reining in the vast collection of Americans’ phone data in a series of limited reforms.
Below are the key highlights from his January 17, 2014 speech: Continue reading
The fear in both the GOP and Democratic party is visible at the surface when it comes to Trump, and it’s not that he’s any of what they’ve accused him of. No, it’s really much simpler than that, and both Republican and Democrat parties, along with the mainstream media, are utterly terrified that you, the average American, is going to figure out what underlies all of these institutions in America.
No, it’s not that they’re evil.
It’s worse, for evil frequently is recognized and fought back yet for decades America has not awakened to what has been going on in the political and media establishment. It was evident during the Vietnam war and has only gotten worse since.
For those who don’t recall the Tet Offensive was an attack launched by the NVA and VietCong by some 70,000 troops in a coordinated series of attacks across more than 100 targets. It was an attempt to foment rebellion among the South’s population. Continue reading
And this should surprise us?
Lawmakers of the House’s Transportation Security Committee warned on Tuesday that “Commercial flights still major target for terrorism” and that dangerous “gaps in security” screenings could lead to a terrorist attack.
However, the director of TSA’s Office of Global Strategies, Joseph Terrell, offered few answers, leading to frustration and a contentious back and forth during the afternoon hearing.
These lawmakers grilled Terrell, seeking to determine how major security gaps at overseas airports could lead to an attack on the homeland. Continue reading
Barack Hussein Obama is fond of telling Americans, “that’s not who we are,” when admonishing us about not agreeing with his policies.
It is Obama and his fellow travelers, who are, in fact, “not who we are.”
It is why many mistakenly describe his views as being delusional, basing their conclusion on what mainstream America believes, not on Obama’s Islamo-Marxist proclivities. Continue reading
Whether or not you support Trump the following is worth reading.
Someone finally had the nerve to publish what many folks are thinking …. but the author was cautious enough to avoid putting his name to his words.
They will kill him before they let him be president. It could be a Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump. Don’t be surprised if Trump has an accident. Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few. It’s about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. It’s one for all and all for one. It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich — everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies. But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened like never before.
