Oklahoma Head: Call it what it is

A grandmother's head in Oklahoma did not simply dis-articulate and fall off her neck because of climate change.  It took a man with a sharp blade, reciting words of Islam all the way, to do the cowardly job.  The FBI is (endlessly) "investigating" whether this was terrorism, while the president assures us for the seven millionth time that Islam is a religion of peace.  Hell no, we aren't at war with Islam. 

Let's see if I have this equation correct:  One radical Muslim plus one knife blade plus one non-Muslim grandmother with a head on her shoulders equals one beheading and one death, except when you add one person with a gun plus the will to use it that equals another life or lives saved.

That's the kind of math I like, and it doesn't come out of a Common Core lesson.

Arm yourselves if you can, with something.  They are here, and you need to be as ready for them as they are for you.  The government?  The government can't save you, it can only take pictures and samples of blood stains after the fact.  We call not for armed paranoia, but for common sense and self-defense, just in case.  Unfortunately.  Multiculturalism, extremism and non-assimilation will destroy the USA.

Eric Holder's Leaking Legacy:   Numerous media sources on the conservative side want Holder prosecuted for Fast and Furious, among other things, and if nothing else he will be remembered for acting profoundly partisan regarding Obama, for acting more than a tad racist, and for not enforcing immigration laws.  I would take that one step further and speculate that his decision to sue Arizona and interfere with others who tried to enforce immigration laws may be directly responsible for illnesses crossing the border and infecting American children from coast to coast -- and we're referencing not only the flu-like illnesses, but the occasional instances of childhood paralysis showing up in concert with the other diseases.  When you allow thousands of nameless every bodies into a country, you're just asking for trouble, and by all indications American children are bearing the early brunt of Obama/Holder border non-enforcement.  As they say in the TV police shows, Mr. Holder, don't leave town -- if congressional investigators have the drive and the evidence, your presence might be requested.  Resignation?  After years of abusing the office of attorney general?  It's the coward's way out, and Obama's televised praise of the A.C. was indeed no better than, per the words of Sarah Palin, putting lipstick on a pig.  Eric Holder, you are no Robert Kennedy.

Japanese volcano illegally blows up!  Now that's global pollution by the megaton, and the fantasies of "global warming" can't touch this beast's power.  Who youse gonna sue over THIS indiscretion, EPA?  Yo mama?  Morons.

ISIS won't play nices:  Interesting that Mr. Obama blames the intelligence community when it appears the relevant facts were ripe for the picking for months -- and did you notice how, for a change, he didn't use the word, "we" in dumping on the intel folks? If we can't bomb them to eternity in a few days, why bother bombing at all?  What -- boots on the ground?  OUR boots?  We did that once, and the worthless Iraq army turned tail and ran.  Here's what:  Congressman, Senator --  If it comes to boots on the ground (and it already has), suit up your sons and daughters and UPS 'em to the Middle East front lines to help out.

UFO propulsion as you've never considered it?   Hit the link for Billy Cox in the margin and check out his September 23 Blog de Void entry entitled, "Any Takers?"  If UFOs involve extraterrestrial travel via intelligent species' but one suspects distances are too great, dramatic new theories might provide a solution.  Per Billy Cox:

"For example, if a UFO were to go. . .only to the point where gravity is just one ten thousandth of its maximum strength. . . then the distance to Alpha Centauri shrinks from 25 trillion miles to just 25 miles!"

Read about the science involved with an exciting new potential pathway to space exploration and see if your horizons don't widen a bit.

Going Viral, Going VERY Viral

 I've been waiting impatiently for physicians to come forward in large numbers to question the origin of a respiratory virus currently engulfing children across the United States.  More accurately, I've waited for a few brave embracers of the Hippocratic oath to publicly shout from hospital rooftops their suspicion that this enterovirus (D-68) hails from somewhere way south of the border.  It only makes sense to consider this when a country is rife with the knowledge that its borders have been open to the whim of a president who seems more like a welcome-wagon representative than a constitutional defender of national borders. Unfortunately, a good many physicians and others probably remain silent because hospital administrations under whom they serve persistently cower in fear of staff members exercising First Amendment rights while the Obama bunch hover over the medical establishment like dragonflies.

But now the Breitbart news service reports that Dr. Jane Orient, Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, expressed her fears last week that illegal immigrants from Central America may be the likely source, during an interview with radio's Laura Ingraham.

May far more than one voice light the darkness of news distortions and White House lies as the president prepares, in all likelihood, to cheapen America's citizenry with the ill-advised amnesty which only the devious can offer via Executive Order.  Meanwhile, tuberculosis, head lice and a wealth of contiguous medical problems continue to cross the border, infecting human carriers who just can't wait to sit next to your kids in a classroom ordered to serve one and all equally by White House leftists.

Bring 'em here while we bomb 'em there:  Mr. Obama really should have had a session with Congress about his highly belated actions in the Middle East this week (his Middle East non-policies and errors pretty much assured that we would end up in this spot), though as luck would have it almost everybody but ISIS will probably agree that sending ISIS members to hell with bombs directed in all the right places is a hot and creative idea -- and sexy for all those dead homicidal Islamists, too, because each will finally get to have his (no, not her) way with 72 virgins.  Whew!  That sure is a lot of virgins, I hope there are enough.  Not that it matters, though, because as I've said before, I suspect all those virgins are elderly male virgins.  Or maybe even old male goat virgins.  Have fun, boys.

Yet, the bombing seems a tad  redundant, since the prez and co. seem perfectly pleased to let anything come over the U.S. borders that can ambulate. For months now.  Are "they" here among us?  Likely they and it. 

What makes little sense to anybody with sense, however, is Obama's apparent desire to remove Assad from Syria, especially when "we" may have made him out to be a worse bogeyman than he is -- a monster, yes, but at least a monster whose rule protects Christians and whose army keeps ISIS and its wanna-be's safely at bay.  Considering this Administration's failures following its helpful obliteration of several Middle East dictators, it should be keenly obvious to even the curious observer that Assad's anticipated goodbye will result in turmoil, utter chaos.  Again.  None would likely replace this dictator except a worse dictator (hello, Al Qaeda & associates) -- but since this is exactly the pattern the Obama bunch has foolishly engineered in Libya, Iraq and Egypt, thus exemplifying the oft-touted warning that insanity means doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result, the prez is almost certain to facilitate Islam's worst to gain a new foothold.  And not to be overlooked, we hope the Saudis and others (surprisingly) involved in stamping out ISIS are footing most or all of the bill for U.S. assistance.  Yeah, right.

Deja vu with the Roosevelts:  I struggled through the entire week of Ken Burns' "The Roosevelts" documentary, realizing early on that rumblings of The Great Depression have resurfaced and one can almost hear the song,  Happy Days are Here Again  playing in the background.  FDR battled the effects of polio, but perhaps our sympathies were mostly with wife Eleanor, unloved and betrayed, yet strong enough to pursue a quality life via other arrangements such as charitable activities.  I was with her right up until her re-embrace of Satan's playground known as the United Nations.  Eleanor, how could you!  Oops, oh, almost forgot, left, left left. . .

Just another fence to be hopped:  First of all, I wondered what the big deal was, because this is a president who cares nothing about the quality or background of those hopping the southern borders.  What's one more fence-jump to the most open Administration in history?  Besides, the intruder is a decorated military veteran with an important message for the president.  We are told that he had to meet with Mr. Obama personally to warn him because the atmosphere is collapsing.  Hmm, he should instead have opted to tell the prez that the sky is falling, because then everybody would know he's talking about the economy.  Where was the Secret Service?  Probably still busy deleting sections in the operations manual referencing Islamic terrorists to avoid irritating White House Muslim Brotherhood higher-ups.

Did Muhammad Exist?  That's the title of a new book by Robert Spencer, whose research and experience lead him to ask that very question.  Could the entire concept of Muhammad the man be based upon bits and pieces from widely-spaced historical accounts -- resulting in Muhammad the invention?  The little man who wasn't there?  I would ask, is that a way-deeper reason why Muslims believe there should be no visual depiction of Muhammad -- because he never existed and therefore could not be shown?  I suppose this dashes all my hopes to sponsor in 2015 a draw your best Muhammad and his nine-year-old wife contest for brave artists willing to lose their lives for art. . .

Climate changes of the rich and famous:  Yes, actors and actresses of exceptional intellect exist, but one may also harken back to the late writer Truman Capote, who said something during an interview on national TV to the effect that he found most of them to be stupid.  You know, the ones who repeat words and move body parts in unison like trained seals.

That brings me to Leonardo DiCaprio, and I don't know or care whether he's smart or stupid.  But he did speak before the global warming socialist crowd in NY's "People's Climate March" this week, fresh, I assume, from departing his private polluting jet aircraft and/or his ocean-voyaging, environmentally destructive yacht.  Amazing - from child actor to expert on how the rest of us must change our lives and suffer economically to accommodate and satisfy climate fantasies of the rich and powerful.

He wasn't alone, of course.  Matt Damon attended, presumably to spew out the same unsettled scientific crap which such folk promise from the heart has long been settled.

Robert Kennedy, Jr., no surprise here, additionally jumped on the bandwagon, warning that climate "deniers" should go to prison.  I guess he's an authority because he's a cause rebel or something, not an actor.  A shame, really.  I cherish letters I have from his father's office regarding UFOs (in the sixties -- I've scanned them for this blog in years past).  But RFK, Jr. might be considered a fanatic regarding the climate, and fanatics often cloak themselves in such a rabid manner that they prefer to wish detractors away to prison.  Yes, myself, I wish President Obama could go to prison, but I'm being realistic based upon his performance, not because of some pathological climate fantasy.

Need I say it?  There is climate change.  The climate always changes, it has before and will long after we're gone.  Climate change is not the property of fanatics bent upon holding terrible powers and expense over our heads.

DiCaprio?  I'll take a Clint Eastwood or Jon Voight over a thousand of him any day because eventually wisdom trumps whimsy.  But, hey, if one has a strong desire to worship at the global warming temple of Al Gore, isn't that special?  If Mr. Obama wishes to speak at the "Climate Summit," are we surprised?

The bottom line:  For me, every time one of these "notable" climate change personalities takes to the stage, I merely hear Klaatu impersonators playing off that farewell speech in The Day the Earth Stood Still, and it cracks me up.  The tragedy, however, is that people longing to influence our lives dramatically based upon computer projections and creaky science often successfully use their charisma to empower themselves while, in a manner of speaking, disemboweling the rest of us. 

The United Nations wants your money.  An international climate treaty must not be ratified or accepted in any form by the United States, and that means we badly require a Senate with independent thinkers unshackled from party and special interest bosses.  Good luck with that.

Feel the Beat

What's the best time of year to beat your children?  There is no best time, and you should never beat your children, but that's not to exclude the occasional swat on the behind when it's deserved.

I started thinking about this beating thing only for one reason.  Seems to me that among all those young college grads associated with the Obama Administration -- the ones who think they're gods and goddesses just because they went to prestigious universities -- who nevertheless are too young, too inexperienced and positively too devoid of common sense to know the dangers of policies they're asked to carry out, a fair share probably never experienced so much as one spanking in their lives.  Imagine all those youthful White House  attorneys and social engineering psychologists raised with nothing but praise, trophies and a total lack of disappointment as they were given everything they ever wanted.

Now, think of them all working together as one in a White House hive, privileged worker bees happily distorting truth, manufacturing lies, half-baking presidential decisions / indecision and dispatching jars of constitutionally fetid directives throughout the land.

Yes, these are the folks who might have gained benefit from a good old-fashioned spanking now and then in their youth. Obviously, it's too late now.

3,000 Americans will reportedly be shipped off to Africa to somehow help deal with the Ebola crisis.  Sorry to be so insensitive, but I'd rather they head for the northern and southern borders of the USA and stop the other deadly diseases storming this country, the ones on two feet.  The White House Marxist continues to screw brave military members who were never intended to do the things this pathetic presidential failure and his cohorts insist upon.  We're told they won't be at risk of developing Ebola -- yeah, and ISIS was just "junior varsity" and not worthy of a second look, either.  By the way, the United Nations gang doesn't appear too interested in jumping into this sea of hell.  

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton continues the journey to remove herself from any vestiges of the apparently corrupt State Dept., and her monumentally destructive actions in the Middle East in collaboration with Boss Obama.  I guess her hitting the political trail exemplifies what's known in the working world as re-inventing oneself.  Hard to tell the difference between the re-invented and a chameleon.

Bits and Pieces for September 2014


How clever of President Obama to put off immigration "reform" -- new legislation which he has no legal ability to produce, let alone enforce -- until after the November elections, so as not to remind voters that their leftist Democrat members of Congress are poised to crush rational definitions of the words, American citizen.   Politics at its most odorous.  Me?  Still way beyond impeachment and hoping for prison -- a prison without a golf course.  The (sigh. ..) impossible dream.

I'm writing this about nine hours before the prez is scheduled to speak to the American people (legal and illegal) with his (obviously) quickly cooked-up (like instant rice, "ready in minutes") Middle East strategy , and I'm thinking, what a jerk, he couldn't wait to rush us out of  Iraq (as numerous archived speeches aptly demonstrate), and after he and Queen Hillary finished adding fire to the Arab Spring,  apparently in full expectation that life would be good again, here we are as both the Middle East and the rest of the world burn in defiance to everything the Obama/Clinton duo and their willing moronic minions did.  As a military veteran, I can't possibly express the degree of outrage I feel over the sad truth that so many fine and honorable active duty folks continue to toil and suffer under a degrading and  pathetically weak conciliatory appliance disguised as a world leader.

Here's a loony idea, how about the sons and daughters of Saudi princes and Kuwaiti royalty, and in fact the whole able population of such countries get out there and use all that military hardware accumulating in their countries to handle this hell on earth themselves?  No, they always expect the U.S. to do it and lose our young people's lives.  Let the Middle East's pampered dignitaries get off the beaches, off their asses and out of the casinos to fight  the war they should fight themselves.  Sorry to be so shallow here, I always get that way when some aura of common sense emerges.

Having said that, enough diplomacy already.  If we're going to send air power to reduce ISIS to an ash, don't hold back.  To hell with the Bush approach and to hell with the Obama approach.  Bomb the extremist Islamist population and keep bombing until every last one is dead, man, woman and child.  It's all the same monster. Will innocent people die?  Yes.  But that's the crazy little thing about war. War is war, and war is accomplished with neither cookies nor kindness, only with speed and death.  Unfortunately, the Obama bunch will probably not call this the war that it should be, continues to have their heads way far up United Nations butt, so anything the prez says tonight with his public face will likely be far different from the things he says to those behind closed doors whom he wishes to appease.  A real American president would start by kicking every vestige of the Muslim Brotherhood out of both the White House and Washington, but thanks to the grand collaboration the whole MB thing is apparently imbedded throughout the intelligence community, with plans to stick around.  This must change, but that will be up to voters whose minds remain yet untouched by Common Core, which replaces common sense.

Oh, and when the mission is finished, don't put our U.S. military members in federal prison for performing the jobs they were ordered to do.  Word has it, there are a lot of military folk in federal pens who don't belong there.  But don't count on Obama diplomacy, which can't even be bothered to get an American Marine out of a Mexican prison -- and Mexico is as much of a friend to us as Iran these days, providing fairly safe passage to those of many foreign lands who invade our borders.  Not a friend.

Next, close the borders and don't allow one more Muslim into the U.S. until we get a handle on the national threat.  Other countries have caught on to the horror, why are we so far behind?  Oh, of course, it's spelled O-b-a-m-a and the leftists.

New virus in town.  Children in 10 states and growing are infected with a serious respiratory virus (Enterovirus 68) rarely seen in this country, often requiring hospitalization, and as the epidemic proceeds it's worth harkening back to all those illegal alien children who began storming the borders months ago, and who continue to do so.  TB cases reportedly are also "mysteriously" showing up in the USA.  Yes, by all means, keep letting anything that can walk across the border attend school with your children.  Diseases progress, the government won't admit to their source, and we have no right to question or get straight answers from anybody.  We need government whistle blowers more than ever.

CVS pharmacies pull the plug on cigarette sales in all their stores.  Well, that's nice -- but you guys do realize, don't you, that you're still peddling, for a hefty profit, dangerous / poisonous drugs behind the medicine counter?  I mean, all the stuff in TV commercials where they warn viewers of potential and  serious complications and even death if taken "as prescribed?"  And last I checked, I don't think smokers excrete stuff into municipal water supplies that could affect aquatic life and people the way traces of some drugs detected in water samples might.  Now, I understand that  pharmacies  drug stores sell medications intended to help people, but if you're going to discontinue the cigs, shouldn't drug stores of any ownership also carry a corporate logo displaying a skull & crossbones?  Really, tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, meth,  generic and brand-name drugs -- choose your poison.  And label it all as the same critter.

Wow, a new I-Phone!  Exciting!  Amazing!   Stupendous!  Extraordinary!  A dream come true!  Dumbing you down!  Requires no common sense or thinking!  Its colorful and shiny allure shapes your attention span into making you the perfect victim for a thief on the streets!  Subject to instant uselessness when encountering an EMP!  Wait, the next I-Phone is almost ready!  Be the first on your block, kids, so you can tell everybody you have one. . .!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, a new smart watch!  Wonder how long it will be before carpal tunnel syndrome becomes widespread due to repetitive wrist movements?  Get ready, orthopedic clinics. . .

Did I hear this right?  That some 160 coal-fired power plants are closing to date per order of Obama's EPA?  If the coming winter meets or exceeds last winter's chill, one wonders how the power grid will cope. Last time, the grid was reportedly hovering near collapse.  If power problems present Americans with disaster this winter, all the public officials who thought disemboweling "king coal" and firing thousands of industry workers was just marvelous for The Environment must be held criminally accountable, and that certainly includes this White House and other communists intent upon American "transformation."  Trust me, slavery is not dead.  Different masters, different plantation, global influence.

And speaking of such things, ABC News, hell-bent upon featuring weather "extremes" almost every day on its so-called news programs (totally ignoring anti-global warming news, natch'), often reveals a fact even they probably overlook:  Their weather reporters will usually say something such as, "This is the worst rain event here in 30 years," and by so doing this indicates that, indeed, severe weather has struck in the recent past.  It's not something brand new.  Yes, climate change exists, with an ebb and flow set in place long before we showed up as latecomers, somehow mysteriously imbedded with the responsibility to explain and  "do something" about climate alterations over which we have no control.  The U.S. Senate must shoot down any and all international climate treaties intended simply to steal our money, and that means telling the current president and his intellectual (that may be a vastly insignificant word) twins at the U.N. "no."

Automobile technology prides itself on the development of electric cars and the like.  Tesla Motors, in fact, is building a battery factory in Nevada.  I'm still betting on hydrogen vehicles, myself, but at any rate the problems to be overcome aren't merely the propulsion and energy systems.  Because roads and highways are routinely washing out due to heavy rainfall -- weather extremes, ABC! -- it kinda seems as though something needs to replace tires, and more likely a something which won't even need a road upon which to travel, since roads may become too cumbersome, expensive and obsolete to maintain and replace.  I know, this sounds like a beam-me-up-Scotty moment, and, as you know, I never much cared for "Star Trek." 

Going Up!  Ray Rice, wedding rice, instant rice, who cares?  Hey, you want football thuggery, this is what you get -- and you want it, you know you do! Violence against women  and men is epidemic, I guess, but I had a different take on the elevator's security cam video regarding that football player / future wife incident.  What may have happened is that the elevator was moving quickly and as Rice was attempting to push a button the force of either upward motion or gravity moved his arm, resulting in his hand smacking the girlfriend and knocking her out.  I assume this is the sort of thing intended when beautiful women are referred to as "knockouts?"  (So, my instant analysis is any less credible than barrels of tripe shared among TV's talking heads?)

Who knew?  The late actor Steve McQueen was among a very few asked to assume the lead role in the movie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, a relatively meaningless little notation I discovered while reading about his life.  I did find it interesting that McQueen, who seemed to have a troubled childhood (as so many of the best actors did), rejected the role which ultimately went to Richard Dreyfuss because he allegedly didn't feel comfortable dealing with emotions required for the part.  While McQueen's reputation on movie sets depicted him as often difficult to work with, he also did whatever he wanted to do and felt that, if others had a problem with him, that was  their  predicament, not his.  Good for him!  By the way, grandson Steven R. McQueen has a recurring role (evidently a role which requires him primarily to show up, hang around and model for the cameras) on TV's  Vampire Diaries, a program whose premise, continuing existence, scripts and very inception continue to puzzle me, much as I'm puzzled that fruitcakes persist in showing up as legitimate Christmas gifts year after year for people who don't actually want or need them, but can't resist opening the wrapper to determine the staleness of the product.
