Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.

Color me surprised. I wrote elsewhere that I would eat a murder of crows ("murder" is the word used with this species to denote a large group - the same as "flock", but specific for crows) if Trump won.

This is one of the benefits of being a pessimist - if you are wrong, you are pleasantly surprised. No matter what happens over the next four years, it will be far, far better than four years of the Clinton Corruption. Even if there are no changes (although I anticipate quite a few), it will be better than the changes Hillary would have instituted.

We may end up with a Supreme Court which actually adheres to the U.S. Constitution.

We may end up with our borders protected against the perils of both illegal immigration and the influx of muslim jihadis into America.

We may - probably will - end up reconnecting with our former allies, strengthening those ties once again, instead of shunning them and siding with those inimical to the best interests of America. Hopefully, that will include supporting Israel against the so-called "Palestinians" (aka Hamas) and at the U.N. against damn near everyone.

We _will_ avoid a war with Russia, which is especially good, since it would also include doing the right thing in Syria, which means allowing their government to plot its own course, instead of trying to force regime change.

I fervently hope (I'd be praying if I was a religious person) that we move to shut down Iran's nuclear program. A country which continues to call for the destruction of both Israel and America has no business producing nuclear weapons. It wouldn't require regime change to affect this much-to-be-desired outcome, but it would be nice to see that happen any way - just not through our efforts. Defending ourselves and Israel - the only "democratic" government in the Middle East - is a legitimate policy to pursue, and taking down their nuclear weapons program should be a priority for Trump. He should get together with Israel and do what it takes. Whatever it takes.

Since ISIS has deposed the legitimate government of Iraq, is trying to do the same in Syria, and is conducting a wholesale slaughter of Christians and Kurds, it would be a proper thing to actually go to war with ISIS. The barbarity of their actions against all non-muslim peoples in the Middle East is cause enough, reason enough. The favor should be returned, with wholesale slaughter of these savages themselves. There is no way to redeem or rehabilitate these muslims - true, orthodox muslims, doing exactly as the qur'an commands them to do. Eradicate them, and perhaps other muslims will "see the light" and behave, even though their cult will not permit them to do much more than hide their infected minds and bodies in an attempt to escape retribution.

The next few years will be very interesting. If Trump survives possible assassination attempts (the Left is far more violent than the right - look at the Nazis [socialists] and the Communists of the old Russia/Soviet Union and China - so any attempt upon his life will originate there), what he does to restore our economy, our freedoms, our rights, and America's exceptionalism (exactly what brought so many valuable legal immigrants to our shores) will be interesting to see.

My thanks to the many millions of Americans whose votes over-rode the millions of dead people and multiple-voting socialists who attempted to elect Hillary. I'm starting to feel some new-found pride in America.

#Never Trump? Then take credit for #Nevermore America, #Nevermore Rule of Law, #Nevermore Freedom

One last shot at getting the #Never Trump crowd to wake up before it is too late. Yes, I have refused to vote for the lesser of two evils before, when it was Bill Clinton and Bush, Sr. I truly didn't see any significant difference between them, economically or politically.

This is different. Trump may be a slob, an arrogant ass, a foul-mouthed ( though NEVER as foul as Hillary to the very men and women who protected her life when she was First Bitc, er "Lady", and now as the Democrat candidate) boor, the last choice of a bunch of GOP losers, one and all (Cruz lost me when he started lying to try to get ahead ("Carson is dropping out, and  telling his people to vote for me").

THIS ISN'T ABOUT TRUMP.  This is about not helping subject America to the utter destruction and degradation of the United States of America. This is about preventing the Left from taking total control of the Supreme Court. This is about trying your damnedest to preserve the rule of law (hoping against hope that a Trump presidency will indeed see her imprisoned for all of her crimes.

This is about seeing to it that a serial child rapist, adult woman rapist, and generally sick, psychopathic bastard doesn't return to take up residence at the White House again. It's bad enough we have had eight years of a racist, race-baiting, homosexual, Alinsky-ite Communist doing his best to tear our country apart, without the further degradation of our government by showing the world we are stupid and morally decrepit enough to allow a child rapist into the White House (and don't you dare suggest that girls of 12 and 13 have sex with old men willingly, especially Epstein's underage sex slaves).

Come on, people. Save your bloody "principles" for a time when it doesn't matter as much as it does this election cycle. We may not have a chance in the face of the Left's control of the whole election apparatus, in the face of Hillary's ability to blackmail and otherwise coerce the FBI and any other group not already in the hands of the "elite", the commies and perverts and power-mongers.

Did you truly believe that Comey was having a "come-to-Jesus" moment, was trying to redeem his damaged integrity from the first pass he gave Hillary? Not on your life. He had to negate the incredible trove of email evidence obtained by the New York Police Department, evidence the U.S. Department of "Justice" threatened the NYPD into holding back, making sure it looked as if Hillary was "cleared" a final time, just before election day.

And I don't give an airborne rodent's rectum if he did it to "save our government from collapsing" because there were so many high officials, Congressmen and women, federal judges, CEOs and the premiers and presidents of a bunch of foreign countries who would have been exposed for having engaged in child rape and abuse on Epstein's plane and/or island. Along with Hillary, who went there six times that are known of, to indulge her own perverted desires.

It is almost midnight now, the night before election day. Please, if anyone who reads this is thinking of not voting for Trump, just swallow your bile, grit your teeth, and DO IT. This could be our last chance at an election that isn't pre-determined by those in power. Remember - even if Hillary is appointed rather than actually, legally elected, it might serve to temper the Left's enthusiasm if they see how many of us actually voted for Trump. Maybe it will make them understand how many might just "rise and rise again, 'til lambs become lions".

The Silicon Graybeard Blog, and Why I Am Obviously Brain-Dead

I can't believe it, but it is true. The blog called The Silicon Graybeard is the first thing I check every day I access the Internet, usually right after I check my email, but sometimes even before. The gentleman that owns the blog is incredibly bright, with such a wide variety of interests and hobbies (he is recently retired) that there is almost always a post by him that fascinates me, whether it is political, economic, social, or technical. He was an engineer in the space/aerospace industries and lives in Florida fairly close to Cape Canaveral. Two of his many hobbies are shooting, along with reloading his own ammunition - two of my personal favorites.

I neglect my own blog horribly, in the belief that there are very few people - even family and friends - who read it. Nonetheless, I happened to read an old email from Google concerning a feature they provided on blogs that are created on blogspot.com. I went to my blog to add that feature ("featured posts") and noticed - to my horror - that I either a0 never added SiG's blog to the list of those I followed, or somehow accidentally (although I don't think that is possible) deleted it. Perhaps when I deleted a couple of other blogs that were abandoned by their owners/authors several years ago (like Hell On Earth, which I really miss).

If the Graybeard ever wanders back over here (I think he visited once), I hope he reads this. No, actually I believe I will write to him (not on his blog - too embarrassing) via email, since we do exchange them from time to time.

Someday perhaps I will write about taking PPIs - proton-pump inhibitors, which reduce stomach acid (I have suffered with acid reflux and Barrett's esophagus for many years now) - and how I recently discovered that a number of serious, peer-reviewed scientific experiments have been done on them, and there is significant evidence to indicate a very strong possible (not proven yet) connection between taking PPIs and memory loss/dementia. One study (using rats, which have been used in human medical research for many, many years) showed that there was a proven link between the intake of PPIs and the beta-amyloid tangles that are indicative of Alzheimer's.

I have taken PPIs for over fifteen years, at relatively high dosages, and I exhibit short-term memory loss far earlier than is common (since my early fifties, but much worse now in my mid-sixties). I have stopped taking them, and have gone back to using H2 receptor antagonists (Zantac in particular) which does not work very well for me. However, I would rather suffer from frequent (daily) heartburn that from worsening dementia.

My oversight in not listing The Silicon Graybeard blog on my blog may simply be due to these issues. It certainly wasn't from a lack of interest or from not valuing the blog, because I do, and I recommend it to anyone who reads my pitiful excuse for a blog.

It's Not About Trump

In checking in on a young lady whose blog - Gunslinger's Journal - I read whenever possible, I saw a post where she copied and presented an article written for The American Thinker by Sally Zelikovsky titled "Trump's Invisible Shield". I liked the article well enough to step out of lurk mode and write a comment - but on Gunslinger's blog, not American Thinker.

It was just a tad too long to fit in the space allotted for a comment, so I trimmed a bit off. Since it is something dear to my heart and certainly appropriate for these few weeks remaining in what might be the last (unsuccessful) attempt at a real election, I decided to post my comment here, for the one or two people who stop by to read my pathetic scribblings. (There might have been two or three more, if I had maintained any sort of schedule instead of abandoning this blog for weeks or months at a time. Can't blame them.)

Here it is in all its gory glory, but do please read Sally's article before you waste time on this:

FWIW, (not much to anyone, save the author, perhaps) I agree. Frankly, even though I am only marginally informed about what has been taking place during this election, I have developed a respect for Trump and his willingness to stand up for what is right. I am willing to bet that whatever waffling he has engaged in was probably at the behest of his campaign staff, rather than a weakness in his principles.

I realize - from having family relations who are Democrats - that many Dems would vote for a steaming pile of bloody, wormy dog feces if it is running as a Democrat (amazing resemblance to the current candidate, don't you think?), however, there are actually Democrats - including minorities - who have tired of the constant betrayal by their Democratic "representatives", who are anything but, and they also see Trump not only as a giant "F U", but as the last hope of ever having any say in their own governance.

Sometimes I wish I wasn't a pessimist, but I would rather be pleasantly surprised than have hopes dashed by reality. I will cast a vote for Trump, who - no matter what his faults, likely no worse than those of all but the best of us - shows more character, more integrity than any of the politicians currently holding office in the White House, Congress, or sitting on the bench at the SCOTUS (and yes, they are all politicians, too, no matter they are appointed).

The Gore-Bush election will probably prove to be the last quasi-legal, real election this country experiences until such time as the citizenry grows big enough balls (or desperation) to revolt, and form a new government. I fear - truly fear - this sham has already been decided.

I believe history will show, once actual history becomes possible again, instead of lies and propaganda, that Obama was ineligible, but allowed to circumvent the Constitution by a cabal of the lowest scum in politics - Pelosi, Reid, McCain - a willing accomplice - and others, to run and be "elected" in spite of that fact. 

I believe history will show he is a half-black queer who participated in a sham marriage to a transgendered, or at least cross-dressing, person of XY chromosomes, with two adopted children whose DNA may not match either he or his tranny companion in crime.

The incredible scope of the deception he has been assisted in fostering upon the citizens of this country puts the "big lies" of Hitler and Stalin to shame. It is no wonder he and the scum who have assisted and elevated this honor-less piece of Communist filth have no respect for the rest of us. In truth I believe we had scant choice and no ability to change or resist the sick charade that was perpetrated upon us, and the manipulation of the media and most of our sources of information made questioning the whole scam a matter of "conspiracy theory" - that lovely twisting of language and logic which has been used to cover the tracks of some of the most horrendous crimes against humanity.

I doubt I will live long enough to see our situation deteriorate to the point where Americans are desperate enough to revolt, if ever. I'm afraid it is much more likely we will end up suffering like the Russians under Stalin, the Chinese under Mao, and even the cambodians under Pol Pot - who were openly massacred with almost no resistance at all. And our "Walter Mitty's Second Amendment"  won't save us. Being gun owners who fully accept that the Second Amendment was written about fighting tyranny, not duck hunting or even self-defense, there still may be too few of us willing to form anything more than a tiny insurgency, easily contained or squashed by a raging police/surveillance state such as we may well face if Clinton returns to the White House next January. Obama has already handed control of our Internet to an international group which certainly does not have our country's (as opposed to our government's) best interests at heart. All part of his plan to assist Soros in HIS plan to destroy America. Can't have a country thinking it is exceptional - as in "an exception from wanting to be ruled by a global oligarchy of power elite".

A Trump presidency will not be a cure-all, and he would have an uphill fight against the entrenched elites in government, against the bureaucrats who rule us by regulation and fiat, in any attempt he makes to save America from the damage, the " (muslim?) fundamental(ist) change" Obama promised us in a rare utterance of truth. Nonetheless, "'Tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished."

[This has been edited with a few extra sentences not included in my comment on Gunslinger's blog. I have room here on mine that I didn't have on her comment section.]

While few were paying attention

I'm sure our feckless leader is as pleased as Punch that he was able to pull off transferring control of the Internet to ICANN . Our lickspittle members of Congress don't appear to be doing anything to stop this illicit transfer of power, and a federal judge has denied a petition by several states' AGs (Attorneys General). http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2016-10-01/judge-denies-attempt-block-transfer-internet-oversight.

I can't remember - and I'm too lazy to check at this time of night - whether I posted it here on my blog or as a comment on someone else's, but I stated previously that Obama's appointment of around 300 (IIRC) federal judge positions during his almost eight years in office is much more dangerous and damaging than his two appointments to the Supreme Court. The federal courts make decisions almost daily which significantly affect us, and ultimately can only be overruled/overturned by the Supreme Court. The biggest problem is that the SCOTUS (although I prefer "SCROTUS") only chooses to look at a handful of all of those lower court decisions, and of those few, I would imagine a good number of them aren't prosecuted because the defendant lacked the means, couldn't afford the costs involved.

I don't know enough to form an opinion about how this will first present itself in the way of the disruption of the 'Net as we know it, whether access will be taxed or require fees being paid, and whether or not ICANN, the U.N. or some other group decides to limit conservative speech, speech about islam and muslims, speech about real (mostly Christian or Jewish ) religions that please or displease our new masters, since they will certainly use it to beat us. Parts of the world actively beat us down, while some parts are uplifting, and show what can come from goodness, from logic and reason, from a willingness to fight the attempts to degrade America, bringing her down to third-world status.

Stay tuned. We live in interesting times.

Perhaps the coming end of the Internet as we know it? (CEOTIAWKI? ;-)

My one loyal (and so very patient, considering how long it is between posts here) follower, Grog, advised me of a blogger who wrote concerning Obama turning control of the Internet over to ICANN, a U.N. based agency. Once upon a time, when I spent more time here on my blog, I would re-post articles from other bloggers and various web sites that I found interesting, informative, upsetting, or which motivated me to comment. This one, from Bloviating Zeppelin (perhaps as in "gas bag", which would be a clever play on words) concerns me. Having some U.N. scum (wish the Saudis had chosen that, instead of the WTTs - especially if they had done it by mistake ;-) decide what I can read or write, and how and when I can communicate with others on the Internet, leaves me very, very unhappy.

Here is the address for BV's post, followed by my comment:

(http://bloviatingzeppelin.net/us-surrenders-internet-control-for-no-purpose/comment-page-1/#comment-38740  if the link doesn't work for you for some reason), along with the great graphic/cartoon with which he headed his post.

Well, Obama has been given permission - and assistance, of course - by those who run him (filthy, fungal sock-puppet that he is) to damage us in ways that aren't very visible to the average citizen in this country, especially younger generations who have had almost no experience being _somewhat_ free ("somewhat" being the best we could do with what we had). 

Degrading our nuclear weapon arsenal (nuclear deterrence has helped prevent the use of nuclear weapons for quite some time now). Imagine how this change may influence the ambitions of Iran and North Korea; down-grading our military in numbers, equipment, and motivation (driving most of the real, experienced warriors out and replacing them with ticket-punching, liberal yes-men (and women - think Kerry - yes, on both counts, pussy that he is  ;-); degrading the Rule of Law to an even greater extreme than existed prior to his infecting the Oval Office; working to destroy the economy and monetary stability; importing hundreds of thousands of muslims (including jihadis, of course); allowing millions of illegals across the border - even arranging transportation of some (illegal "children", many in their late teens and early twenties); appointing liberal whacko feminists to the Supreme Court - and even worse, hundreds of liberal whack jobs to federal court positions all across the country (along with appointing many U.S. Attorneys across the country) who will legislate from the bench with few of their decisions to ever come before the Supreme Court, no matter which way it leans; issuing executive orders that are unConstitutional; weaponizing the IRS, EPA, and other agencies to run roughshod over those his administration deems "enemies", and allowing the DOJ to ignore the crimes of those who please the administration while demonizing those that displease it. Especially if they are white and/or Christian (yes, black Christians have been harassed, too).

Soros - who has stated he wants to destroy our country - realizes better than Obama
how important the Internet is to the citizens of a country who mainstream media is under the control of the Left. Handing off the control of - and protection of - the Internet to those who see disagreement as "hate speech", not to be tolerated (ask Geert Wilders how that works) may deprive us not only of the ability to learn the truth (especially those things the MSM ignore, refuse to publicize), but also the ability to connect to each other. 

That is my personal greatest fear. I am not 'Net (Web?) savvy, but I imagine that while there may be ways around the censorship or even the disconnection of targeted conservatives, it will be difficult and will mean far fewer of us will have access to the desperately need information that sites like Drudge, Zerohedge, Jihad Watch and Gates of Vienna provide, as well as the information bloggers such as WRSA, BZ, and so many others bring to us. As someone who disconnected from TV back in 1987, pretty much my only source of info is the Internet - plus one or two trusted friends, but they get most of their info from the Internet as well.

This has the potential of being a real game changer for all of us. I'm hoping the well-tempered 'Net users among us will find a way for all of us to stay connected.

What will it take?

My wife and I were discussing (and cussing) the fact that our government is completely comfortable with the “lost” $6.5 TRILLION at the Pentagon (and add that to the trillions spent during attempted “reconstruction” of Iraq after “Desert Storm”, “Enduring Freedom”, etc., when much of the money ended up in the pockets of construction companies and “aid” organizations which took the cash and did little or nothing in the way of fixing things - just like in Haiti) AND not saying or doing anything substantive about the $9 TRILLION “lost” at the Federal Reserve. (And if you think those at the Pentagon, the Federal Reserve, and the White House don’t know exactly where those $15+ trillion dollars have gone, I have some swamp land I’ll gladly sell you.)

The only moves the American people have remaining to them involve actual rebellion, revolution, the stringing up of those responsible from the nearest lamppost in DC, NYC, or wherever they are working or living. If you haven’t figured out that voting is a COMPLETE AND TOTAL FARCE, then you haven’t been paying attention.

Government has grown so big, and has swung so far to the Left, that replacing the current communist drone in office - even with someone with the best of intentions (and I think that describes Trump) - will be fruitless. Congress won’t support him (Paul Ryan, current Speaker of the House, has even said he would “sue” Trump, attempting to stop him from using executive orders the way Ryan has allowed Obama to use them - to destroy our economy and the very fabric of America, our culture and pride) and the huge bureaucracy that exists in agencies like the EPA, IRS, DOJ, DOD, etc. which will refuse to follow those orders. The FBI has shown they are unwilling to follow the law themselves, refusing to arrest for proven felonies that extend even unto treason if one of the “elite” are at fault, yet if a “mundane” - one of the peons like your or me - simply tells a lie, it is felony prison time. Just ask Martha Stewart. Or you get SWATted, and bleed out while SWAT refuses to allow the paramedics to approach you as you lie there, unresponsive and a threat to no one.

Shirley and I observed that there is a climate of apathy, even among those of us who see what is going on, those of us who aren’t distracted by Oprah, Dancing With The Stars, and the National Football League. Short of armed rebellion, there just doesn’t seem to be anything effective that we can do to stop the corruption, the abuses, the rape of America by “Too big to fail” financiers, CEOs, members of the Federal Reserve, by race baiters who are allowed to walk around un-molested by law enforcement in spite of owing millions in unpaid taxes, by Congressmen and women who owe taxes, who have committed crimes you or I would spend decades in jail for having committed.

Even a March on DC, on the Capitol Building while Congress was in session, would not deter the minions of the Left who are our “elected representatives” - two lies for the price of one. They would ignore it, unless the marchers were each armed with a battle rifle and numerous magazines of ammunition. It would take dragging the most egregious members - like Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, Feinstein, McCain, Ryan, McConnel, Graham, and a host of other out onto the streets of DC ands decorating some lampposts with the miscreants before we would see any change.

Yes, we will vote to try to get Trump into office, in the hopes he can at _least_ stop the influx of muslims - jihadis one and all, even if they don’t all fight with a gun or explosives, but with multiple wives having multiple muslim babies - and illegal aliens. That would be a life-saver for our way of life right there, even if not enough to repair all of the damage Obama, Clinton, Bush (to our economy), FDR, Wilson, etc. have done to our country and Western Civilization in general.

Just don’t expect that to turn around many decades of subversion - of the educational system which has worked for so many years to indoctrinate our children not simply in a collectivist/communist view of how our country should operate, but also to destroy their understanding of what is right/moral behavior, the Judeo-Christian code of morality that this country, the Constitution, and our original government were built upon. John Adams said that our form of government (a constitutional republic, not a democracy) would only work for a moral and religious people. The Left is doing its utmost to see that we will no longer be either moral or religious.

Of the whole electoral system, which has been perverted to permit - and ACCEPT - the fraudulent voting and counting of votes that has allowed many on the LEFT - like Reid, Pelosi, Feinstein, McCain, etc. - to be re-elected year after year, in spite of obviously working against the wishes and needs of their constituents. Of the subversion of government, where laws are written and enforced by faceless bureaucrats who write regulations which are allowed to be treated as actual law, as if they were written and passed legislation.

The correction of the educational system is going to have to start at the teachers colleges, where Leftist professors following in the footsteps of the Fabians (http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/sociopol_warterrorism02.htm) have corrupted impressionable young men and women into believing they are engaged in a higher calling when they graduate and pass on their indoctrination to their students.

We also need to stop - and reverse - the moral decay being taught and encouraged in our children by their teachers in school and their professors in our universities. By the psychologists, psychiatrists, and "bio-ethicists" like Paul Singer, and medical "ethicist", Ezekial Emanuel (Rahm's brother) who have been trying to get pedophilia - the desire to have sex with children - removed from the DSM, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. They want to make it considered "normal" behavior, with no penalties attached to it. If I remember correctly, there was an article published that said Emanuel gave a talk to young school children, telling them that it was all right for an adult to touch them and have sex with them, that they shouldn't be afraid, but just do what the adult wanted them to do. How freaking (swap the "rea" for "ck" if you like) sick is that. It would shock you to know how many people - predominantly Democrats, liberals - think that would be perfectly all right. People who are professionals.even respected and admired in their particular fields.

I hate to be pessimistic, but I don't see this turning around - if ever - until things have gotten so bad that the State (our government) starts removing our children from their homes, doubles the 95,000,000 or so un- or under-employed citizens who find themselves out of work and unable to provide for their families, crashes the economy, or starts a civil war by outlawing Christianity and the Judeo-Christian moral code, which a lot of us Boomer generation old folks still adhere to, even if we are no longer actively religious. We are already so close to that point that it amazes me. Talk about the frog in the slowly heated water.

Remember folks, the Supreme Court is so close to being a liberal nightmare that electing anyone besides Trump - no matter how you feel about him - means that a liberal Justice will be appointed to the Scalia vacancy, making the Court 5 to 4 liberal, ready and willing to begin to work seriously and hard at removing the rest of our rights. Obama already appointed two of his cronies, Sotomeyer and Kagan. A liberal replacement for Scalia will change the Court from something that was designed to protect the Constitution to something that will legislate from the bench, following its own agenda.

When it is no longer legal for us to have firearms (Ruth Bader Ginsberg said that it at the top of her list once they get another liberal on the Court), when the Internet is controlled by the Left with censoring of conservative viewpoints, when speaking out against muslims, illegal aliens, and the government becomes "hate speech" or sedition, when the Patriot Act and the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) are used to remove conservatives from their homes and places of business and rendition them, with no legal recourse and no notification of family or friends, we had better take up the arms we have and fight.

If not, it will be the span of decades, if not centuries, before we have the opportunity to once again be free. Our children and grandchildren will have no idea what being "free" once meant, and will calmly and willingly do as they are told, including turning in "Gramps" for the firearms and ammunition he has hidden away, or Grandma for speaking out against muslims, pedophilia (but I repeat myself), and the government in general.

Sorry to be such a pessimist, but that is where I see us heading. Trump might only delay it a bit, but any other choice will simply hasten our destruction to where we will probably see it happen within what is left of my lifetime. I hope I am wrong.
