The Delusional, Dangerous Left

Leftist Slander of President Trump
The leftist Democrats are in all-out attack mode, determined to destroy Trump's presidency by any means necessary.  They created a huge lie, that Trump won the election over Hillary because his campaign colluded with the Russians somehow.  A special investigator has been appointed to continue looking into the charges, already several weeks old with not a shred of evidence.  However, whether it is true or not doesn't matter.  The Dirty Dems seek to create an impression in the minds of the public through insinuation.  The media is onboard, reporting the "investigation" as if there were any truth to it, and support the Big Lie with images such as that of Time Magazine on the left, which shows the White House merging with the Kremlin.  Sick!

Meanwhile, fake turncoat Republicans like John McCain are lending their voices in support, while despicable Democrats like Maxine Waters and Al Green publicly call for impeachment of Trump -- for what?  He has committed no "high crimes and misdemeanors."

The Dims have long practiced the "politics of personal destruction," ruining reputations with falsehood, innuendo and rumor.  Even though their target may be completely innocent, the idea is to create enough doubt in the minds of voters to give the Dimocrat candidates the edge.  Other observers have called the current Democrat pogrom a "soft coup d'etat."  The Democrats seek to ruin a president based on slanderous fabrications.  I almost wish for a new Civil War.

*****

In other fronts, a domestic Democrat terrorist group called "Antifa" is showing up at all Republican and conservative political events to beat up, harass and injure the Republican participants.  Antifa likes to carry signs that say "Fuck Off Nazi Scum!"  So we are now Nazis, because they say so.

This is similar to the recent unhinged attacks on Confederate monuments in New Orleans, where the monuments are described as "monuments to white supremacy and oppression."  Any who support the monuments are, of course, "racists."  The baby-faced, bald Marxist Mayor Mitch Landrieu has been removing these monuments in the face of strong opposition, even sending workers in bullet proof vests, helmets and masks, to dismantle the monuments.  This, while a SWAT team overlooks the destruction with loaded rifles.  A more blatant example of leftist fascism is hard to imagine -- crushing the will of the people by brute force, and with total disregard to their feelings or opinions.

Is Debby Schlussel Just Plain Nuts? My Past Articles Support This Probability.

Debby Demento
Debby Schlussel made quite a stir this past week when she implied that she had been sexually harassed by Sean Hannity.  This set liberal mouths to watering, as they saw another conservative scalp to pin on their wall -- this after silencing Bill O'Reilly for alleged similar acts.

Debby Schlussel is a Jewish and allegedly, conservative, blogger who often attacks other conservatives, accusing them of plagiarizing her website, of pepetrating scams and other crimes.  Given her past behavior, it is not at all surprising that she would make another outrageous and false allegation against a conservative she has attacked in the past:  Sean Hannity.  She is a loose cannon.

Back in 2010 I posted an article called "Is Debby Schlussel Just Plain Nuts?"  In that article I described how she had attacked Sarah Palin in over-the-top comments, and also noted that she had fixed her sights on Sean Hannity.  Click on the above link to read that post.

In another 2010 post, I described Schlussel's outrageous claims against other conservatives.  That post was titled "Debby Schlussel:  A Study In Strange Behavior."  I link to other sites that further describe her errant ways.

Finally, I had a post about Schlussel called "Debby Schlussel:  The Train Wreck Continues."  In that post I advise Debby Schlussel to "seek help."  I was referring to professional, psychiatric help.

Bill O'Reilly Blows It; The Wisdom of Keeping It Zipped

Bill O'Reilly, Former Fox Employee
Bill O'Reilly, the most successful and popular television pundit at Fox News, has been let go.  This is a major coup for the left, who love shutting down powerful voices of reason and right. However, Bill apparently helped them by his own really stupid behavior.

The New York Times, a major publication of the fascist left, found the dirt that did the downfall.  Fox, they learned, had paid out a few million dollars to several women employees of Fox.  The payments were necessitated by O'Reilly's alleged sexual harassment of the women.  Powerful men in prominent places sometimes lose control of their penises, and flaunt their position by pressuring women employees to have sex with them.  Ask Bill Clinton.

This "sexual harassment" phenomenon has been well known for several decades now, as have the consequences thereof.  Any man in the public eye who sexually harasses a fellow employee is a damn fool.  Yes, that small appendage between male legs is known to cancel reason and rationality.  No matter how intelligent a man might be otherwise, satisfying junior can impel him to take terrible risks with his reputation and do really dumb things.

Thanks a lot, Bill.  On behalf of leftists everywhere.

The Fascist Symbol Means "Stronger Together." Sound Familiar?

The symbols on the left are called "fasces."  Fasces are a bundle of sticks bound together with an ax blade sticking out.

This is the original symbol of fascism, which derives its name from the fasces.  One stick is easily broken, but when they are combined in a bundle, they support each other and become much more difficult to break.

Yep.  The fascist symbol means "stronger together."  No wonder Hillary chose that slogan as her campaign motto.

Berkeley "Antifa" Fascists Get a Beat-Down

Conservatives Came Prepared for a Fight
This past week Trump supporters held a rally for free speech in the leftist cesspool known as Berkeley, or as we like to call it, Berzerkely, California.  The leftists there are extreme -- out and out communists who want a revolution.  The University of California there has long been a citadel for subversion, and is the intellectual center for organizing and propagating anti-American thought and action.

Back in February, these same leftists caused a lot of damage to the university when a conservative, Milo Yiannopoulos, was invited to speak.  As in often the case with conservative speakers there, he was forcibly prevented from speaking by the violence and intolerance of the communist population that infests the place.

Yes It Is
This past week conservatives decided on holding a free speech rally in Berkeley, knowing quite well that the leftists scum would try to shut them down with violence.  But the rightists came prepared, with motorcycle, baseball and other kinds of helmets, and goggles to protect them from pepper spray and mace wielded by the Marxist scum.  The left did indeed bring a fight, and received a good beat-down by the prepared right wingers.  It was good that the rightists came prepared to defend themselves, because the worthless Berkeley Police Department stayed out of the melee, sitting in the safety of their police cars.  This is not the first time the Berkeley Police refused to come to the aid of the conservatives while under attack by the leftist scum.  I wrote about a previous episode of this in 2008.

A young friend of mine, a member of my Sons of Confederate Veterans camp lives in Berkeley.  He was there at the rally, with friends in support of the conservatives.

The leftists in Berzerkely call them selves "Antifa," which means "anti-fascist."  This is ironic, since they themselves are thoroughly fascist, dedicated to violence in order to silence opposing views and political opinions.  Instead of wearing brown shirts, however, they prefer a uniform of black clothing and ski masks to hide their faces.  They are not about discussion or debate, they are about violence and brute force to enforce their destructive beliefs on a majority who do not want them.

Various leftist discussion sites (like Reddit) indicate the rabble will soon be practicing and learning more violent tactics for the next time anyone tries to impose sanity on their turf.  As one leftist placard stated, "This is War."

Another Muslim Terror Attack (Yawn)

Another scumbag from the Religion of Peace has committed yet another atrocity in Islam's eternal war against humanity.  This time it was in London where a Muslim man drove his car into a crowd of pedestrians, injuring twenty and killing three.  The thug also stabbed a cop while being apprehended.

Western pols who invite these barbarians into their countries are guilty as hell, willing accomplices to mass murder, sedition and sabotage.  In the U.K and Canada and other leftist dominated nations, it is illegal to openly discuss Islamic terrorism or complain about being its target.  Therefore, I express no condolences or sympathy to the British government.  They are reaping what they have sown, and will continue to do so.

Richard Spencer Kicked Out of CPAC -- Am I a "White Nationalist"?

Richard Spencer showed up for the annual CPAC meeting in Washington DC and was denied admittance.  Spencer is the head of the National Policy Institute.  He has been denounced by many as a "white supremacist" or a "white nationalist."  I took a look at the NPI website and, sure enough, it appears to be an organization that wants an all-white America.  In the comments section of any post, there are writers defending Adolf Hitler.  "War was forced on him!" one writer exclaims.  "He was just trying to save the white race!"

Oh bullshit.  These people are boring and radioactive.  No one remotely in the mainstream wants to be identified with them.

I am not a "white supremacist," in that I do not want to deport citizens of a different color, on the basis of skin tone alone.  I don't want an all white America.  I would have to deport my wife and our son.  I do not want a different class of citizenship based on race.  We tried that, and it was grotesque.  I support equality under the law, but without the political correctness that spares nonwhites from legitimate criticism.  It is time blacks and others lose the magic cloak that hides them from personal responsibility and accountability.

I am not a "white supremacist."  However, I may be a "white nationalist."  I do want to keep and to expand the white majority in America.  That would be anathema to liberals and leftists.  They think the "browning of America" to be a good thing, i.e. social progress, and exclaim gleefully the year in which whites will become the minority in America.  Many blacks openly express hatred for white people and talk about killing them all.  In a nutshell, nonwhites tend to vote for Democrats, and whites tend to vote Republican.  That is the simple basis of all the partisan wrangling over immigration.

When one sees how badly whites are treated on college campuses and in liberal establishments and circles, the prospect of a white minority is frightening indeed.

Also, I like the way that white people vote.  Sue me.

The Left's War on Trump Intensifies

The leftist media is intensifying their war on Trump.  Now they are claiming that Trump campaign officials were in constant contact with Russian intelligence.  The object of this fake news is to give credibility to the leftist fantasy that Russian intelligence worked with Trump to sabotage Hillary.

Of course!  The American people were chomping at the bit to vote for the corrupt harpy to ensure many more years of economic stagnation and American demise.  But the magic Russians knew how to enter the minds of the American people to reprogram them to vote for Trump instead.  How devious!  Trump's crime is obvious!

Pathetic.

The "Women's March" on Washington DC

Only In Their Dreams
The motley assortment of radical feminists who befouled Washington yesterday aptly demonstrated my impression of leftists.  Angry, open-mouthed dregs of society, shouting Hitler analogies, waving signs with moronic slogans, largely unwashed, festooned with facial studs, nose rings and tattoos, and downright ugly.  They have no more credibility for me than Mao's Red Guards.  Transportation was probably provided by Soros funding.  Someone mass produced many of the protest signs, which were left littering streets and sidewalks after the "protestors" departed. 

They are extremists with absurd views:  that sex with men is always rape; that heterosexuality is no more valid or normal than lesbianism;  that abortion on demand is a holy right.  They hate men, white people, Christians and Jews.  They despise capitalism and yearn for a socialist state that can provide their every need, for free.

Why do they protest?  Because many of them were paid to do so, according to very recent Craiglist ads.  Others simply want attention and peer approval.  Has-been celebrities are there hoping for renewed relevance and credibility.  Ashley Judd made the disgusting claim that Trump has sexual fantasies about his own daughter.  Leftists are obsessed with sexual perversion, and almost always level such accusations at their political opponents.  Projection, no doubt.

Madonna voiced her desire to "blow up the White House."  Gloria Steinman and other passé leftist losers were there to join the ugh-fest.  The media, including Fox News, added undeserved credibility to the Marxist milieu by treating the orchestrated sideshow as an authentic grassroots uprising with legitimate issues and concerns.  No.  The "protestors" were the lunatic fringe, devoid of credibility, undeserving of respect.  

Rush recently described the changing nature of the Democratic Party.  It used to be for the non-college educated working man.  It has become the party of kooks and weirdos.

Thank God He's Gone

Today was the last moments of the Obama Administration.  Once Trump took the oath of office, the torch was passed.  I felt a great burden lifting as it did.

Apparently, there was little in the way of protests and leftist disruption, in spite of radical threats and promises.  Donald and Melanie escorted Barack and Michelle to the door of a waiting helicopter, and away flew the Obamas into history, relative obscurity and irrelevance.

Let the healing begin.

Obama's Reign Ends, the War Continues

On Friday Barack Obama will hand over the presidency to Donald Trump.  The worst president in my lifetime will be gone and damage repair will begin.  However, though the radical college sophomore will be out, his ruthless Party of Lies will continue their war on America.

Trump's rejection of Political Correctness, however, is helping to create a new national mood.  People are less afraid, less reticent to tell the truth, to say things they wouldn't dare before the advent of the Donald.  The public denunciation of the extreme media bias, is but one example.  The observation and open discussion of black racism being another.  The ruthless lies and double standards of the Democratic Party.  The brazen incompetence and/or corruption of Democrat standard bearers (i.e., Obama and Hillary).  Then there is the radicalization and perversions of Hollywood and Academia, which are nothing new, but far more extreme than ever before.

Twitter Wars

I spent much of this stormy day fighting with liberals on Twitter.  Discussion isnt possible with angry children, so it was nothing but a flame war.  They insult me, I insult them back even better, and this goes on for some time.

Leftist females question the sufficiency and size of my shlong, whereas male leftists accuse me of being gay.  All of them make fun of my age.  They can't get to me, because their opinions don't matter in the least.  Besides I am much better at insults than they are.

I confronted Bosch Fawstein over his chronic, unjustified anti-Trump hostility.  Bosch is a former Muslim and allegedly an anti-jihadist.  He is an artist who draws caricatures of Muhammad and has a comic book character called Pig Man.  Trump is the only politician in either party who has recognized the need to halt Islamic immigration, and who recognizes the evil that Islam represents.  And yet Bosch fervently opposes Trump.  So now I oppose Bosch.  He is not our friend.

(Fake) Donald Trump Follows Stogie on Twitter - and Happy New Year!

UPDATE:  It wasn't the real Donald Trump who followed me.  Donald Trump is @realDonaldTrump, and this joker is @realDonaldTrumpp -- he has an extra p at the end of his Twitter name.  He uses the same photo of Donald Trump as the real Trump uses.  I became suspicious this morning when this fake "realDonaldTrumpp" began tweeting nonsense about how Ted Cruz is the Zodiac killer from the 1970s.

Leftists, being the giant frauds we all know and hate, are attempting to give Trump a black eye by making it seem that Trump is mad, via a false Twitter account.

AS THE WORM TURNS: Obama's Last Destruction In Office

The radical college sophomore pretending to be a president is wrecking as much as possible as his days in office dwindle.  He has recently:
  • Attempted to close oil drilling off the Alaskan coast PERMANENTLY, thus imposing his will on future administrations, and by his hand alone (not subect to any vote);
  • Back-stabbed the nation of Israel by refusing to veto the annual leftist condemnation of Israeli settlements;
  • Sought to bring in many more Syrian (Muslim potential terrorists) "refugees;"
  • Lied about Russian hacking the latest presidential election as a way to "explain" the American people's rejection of his would-be successor and his destructive leftist policies;
  • Imposed sanctions on Russia and expelled 35 Russian diplomats as punishment for nonexistent Russian hacking of the election.
Obama commits near-aggression against Russia merely as a ploy to delegitimize Trump's victory and convince the American people that the election result was not delivered by their votes, but by some black magic committed by Russian spies.  

I will be so glad when this leftist POS Barack Obama is removed from the White House.  Three more weeks, and the little traitor will do his best to damage the peace, prosperity and security of the United States while he has the chance.

Ivanka Trump's Art Work Repurposed to Comply With Liberal Artists' Requests (#Photoshop)

Various liberal artists saw photos of their artwork on the walls of Ivanka Trump's home.  These leftist artists then requested that Ivanka remove "their" art from her walls, as they did not wish to be associated with her.  Below are some Photoshops I created to suggest how that artwork might be repurposed, in accordance with the artists' wishes.

Electoral College Votes Monday

The Democrats have been doing their best to persuade members of the Electoral College to vote against Trump.  Electors have been threatened with death, guilt-tripped, and beseeched to betray their trust to the American voter and deny Trump the presidency.  A group of has-been actors have even made a video to plead with electors into doing their radical leftist bidding.

Tomorrow, Monday December 19, the Electors will vote.  They should officially declare Trump the president-elect, and the Democrat war on democracy ended, for the time being at least.

After that, the next anticipated date will be January 20, when we will finally be rid of the Marxist moron who has infested the Oval Office for the past eight, nightmarish years.

Update: Trump's victory is official.  Electoral College came through.

Civil War Anyone?

The New York Times and Barack Obama are still pushing the Russians-Stole-The-Election meme.  Democrats and RINO Republicans like John McCain are calling for an investigation of Russian hacking that delivered the election to Donald Trump and stole it from Hillary Clinton.  Obama has promised to share that information with the members of the electoral college before they vote.

It's obvious that the dirty Dems are attempting a desperate move with this, their latest hoax.  Give the electors an excuse to vote for Hillary instead of the candidate chosen by the voters.  Even if it doesn't work, the fraud will still serve to delegitimize Trump's election.

The Dems operate under the assumption that "politics is war by other means."  Their latest campaign is to steal the election from Trump and award it to Hillary.  They should take care that their nefarious schemes do not segue into a new civil war.

Democrats: The Party of Lies

The Democrats are working overtime to delegitmize Trump's election win.  This past week they have focused on two lies:

1.  "Fake news stories" on social media defamed Hillary and allowed Trump to win;
2.  Russia hacked the election and stole it for Trump.  Even the CIA claims that this is true (the CIA has been a Democrat agency for some time).

The Democrats offer no evidence that either of these memes is true.

Pearl Harbor 75 Year Anniversary

On December 7, I was tending to my wife who was in the hospital for two days and nights, due to heart and blood pressure issues.  So I missed writing anything for the 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor.  However, the definitive Peal Harbor post was expertly penned by Curmudgeon of Political Clown  Parade.  You can view her excellent post, "Our Heart Remains Their Cemetery."

For some unknown reason, I cannot link to Political Clown Parade in my sidebar.  Well I can link, but the link always displays a weird error message.  One of these days I must replace the software for this blog with a new and more modern template.

Election Recounts; Ohio State University Shooter Killed

Democrat Chicanery
If you've been listening to Rush Limbaugh, you know that the Democrats are half insane over their loss in the November 8 elections.  The current strategy is to give Trump an aura of illegitimacy, as if he somehow stole the election, possibly with the help of Russian hackers taking over voting machines in the battleground states.  Election officials in the states targeted for a recount (Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan) state that there is no evidence of any hacking or vote fraud that would justify a costly recount.  In fact, Wisconsin officials have denied Jill Stein's request for a manual recount of votes, and she is preparing to sue over that.  Why this obnoxious leftist (Stein) is so adamant about forcing a recount isn't clear.

Other Democrat chicanery is to pressure Trump to adopt the Democrat agenda, at least in part.  This is all in the (false) spirit of "coming together as a nation," "reaching across the aisle," and curing the ill feelings among Americans.  Let's hope Trump isn't fooled (I doubt that he will be).  The Dims try to make the most of every situation, even after their recent historical loss that has reduced their elected numbers significantly.  So their strategy right now is to mitigate their losses in any way possible.

Ohio State Shootings/Stabbings
Some would-be mass murderer has attacked students at Ohio State University today, ramming some with his car, and slashing others with a knife.  He was soon dispatched by a gun-wielding cop, and is now quite dead.  Fortunately, the assailant was the only fatality. Around 10 injured students have been taken to the hospital.

Why would this lunatic try to kill a lot of innocent students who had done nothing to him?  Good question.  My bet is that he was a Muslim trying to collect his 72 virgins.

ELECTION AFTERMATH: Temper Tantrums on the Left

Now that Trump is the president-elect, millennials and other human detritus are throwing temper tantrums.  Fires are being set, windows broken, buildings and monuments vandalized.  People in California want to secede from the Union and establish their own version of Venezuela.  Some of the leftists are calling for Trump's assassination; black thugs are beating up Trump supporters on the street.  Read all the gory details here.

Trump's victory is immensely satisfying to me, but it has an added benefit:  It reveals just how rotten to the core the political left is -- how totalitarian, how vastly ignorant, how intolerant, and how prone to violence and hatred that they really are.

As for California seceding, I believe in the right of secession, like my great grandfather did when he fought for the South.  Secede California; you are as unAmerican as it gets.  No state in the Union is more out of step with the American people than La La Land, where no silly political/gender/sexual fad is beyond the pale.  The state flower is the California Poppy -- it should be the Opium Poppy.  The state bird is the California Quail.  It should be the Cuckoo Bird.  The whole damn state belongs in a strait jacket.  Secede already, rejoin Mexico.  You are a disgrace to human freedom.  And if you refuse to secede, the rest of the country should declare war to make you do it.

The only reason why I have not left California, my home for the past 62 years, is that I am no longer young, and two of my three sons live here, and all of my grandchildren.  However, I may have to reconsider that decision.  I hate this state.

The Erroneous Polls in the 2016 Election

The polls were largely wrong, as most predicted a Hillary win.  Many people warned us not to trust the polls, and not to get discouraged because of them.  The skeptics were right.  Lesson:  the only poll that counts is the actual election.  Never quit, never give up until it is truly over.  Polls are sometimes used to shape an election, not merely to predict its outcome.  I believe that is what happened in 2016.

Using Excel to Track the Vote 2016

Yesterday evening I followed the vote closely and carefully, using an Excel spreadsheet.  I put all the states in a column on the left, then to the right, their electoral votes.  The next two columns to the right were labeled Hillary and Trump.  When a state was called, I would put the electoral vote won in the winner's column.  Here is a portion of that spreadsheet to illustrate:

The black numbers are actual votes, the red numbers were my prediction, based on trends.  In this way I could see the direction of the vote.  Early on, I saw the direction was in Trump's favor, and that his winning it was indeed possible.  Being able to see this in black and white eased my mind considerably, and watching the vote became a lot less fearful and painful.

As the night wore on, all Trump needed was to win Michigan to put him over the top.  However, Pennsylvania closed first, and that put him over.

All the while, I kept up a running conversation with other Trump supporters on FaceBook, as well as checking the electoral maps on both the New York Times and Fox News websites.

The result of this was that I enjoyed the vote, instead of anguishing over it.  It enabled me to see, hours before the end, that Trump was headed for a win.

Thoughts on Election Day 2016

9:23 AM, PST:  Finally, the day is here.  Will Donald Trump win the presidency, or will Hillary Clinton?

My intuition still cannot foresee the eventual winner, as it did in 2008.  If anything, it favors Trump, slightly.  However, that may just be hopeful thinking.

In 2012, I was reasonably sure the American people would sweep the incompetent, radical college sophomore from office, and Romney would replace him.  I was shocked and horrified when Obama was re-elected.  Surely, I thought, the great majority of Americans could see what a disaster Obama had been.  Apparently, they did not.

Updates will be made throughout the day.
*******

Here is a quote many of us can identify with.  We understand much, but are in no position to advance our understanding.  So we watch, with great angst, while the largely uninformed electorate continues eroding our liberties and prosperity.



****

5:40 PM, PST -- Polls are closing in the east.  Per the New York Times electoral map, Trump has a early lead of 60 electoral votes to 40.  At this early time, that doesn't mean much.

6:03 PM, PST -- The Fox Election update page is updating faster than that of the NY Times.  It now shows Trump ahead by 139 - 97 electoral votes.  However, the left coast electoral votes have not yet been counted and they will all go for Hillary.

Waiting for the 2016 Election to Be Over

Today the FBI Director, James Comey, announced that finding another 650,000 government emails on a private laptop did not change his July opinion:  that Hillary Clinton did nothing to warrant an indictment.  Donald Trump immediately claimed that the system is rigged to protect Hillary, and I have no disagreement with that observation.

Right now I am sick of all the hype, October surprises, claims and counterclaims.  I just want this nightmare political  campaign  to be over.

Who will win?  I am prepared for the worst.  Would the Uniparty Establishment ever allow itself to lose?  Somehow, it all seems to be a done deal.  We will be stuck with that grinning, coiffed and pants-suited phony for the next four years.

I voted for Trump on Friday, using my absentee ballot.  Wifey did too.  She dropped off our ballots at the Registrar of Voters.  That's really all any of us can do, and pray that in the end, it will be enough.

CHICAGO CUBS WIN WORLD SERIES AFTER 108 YEAR WAIT

Before this week, the Chicago Cubs professional baseball team last won a World Series in 1908 -- 108 years ago.  Yesterday the long drought ended when the Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in ten innings of the 7th game of the series.  Though sick in bed, I had to watch it.  This was an American historical drama, finally playing out over a century and multiple generations of Americans.

And like any good tale, it involves heroes and legends, handed down from one generation to another.  One of the best involves the Cubs infield of 1908, a deadly trio dealing in double plays.  They were shortstop Joe Tinker, second baseman Johnny Evers, and first baseman Frank Chance.  Their story is immortalized in a 1910 poem written by a frustrated New York reporter, Franklin Pierce Adams, when the Cubs infield completed a double play to defeat the New York Giants.  The poem is titled "Baseball's Sad Lexicon."

Tinker, Evers and Chance,
Cubs Double Play Combo 1902 - 1912
These are the saddest of possible words:
"Tinker to Evers to Chance."
Trio of bear cubs, and fleeter than birds,
Tinker and Evers and Chance.
Ruthlessly pricking our gonfalon bubble,
Making a Giant hit into a double-
Words that are heavy with nothing but trouble:  

"Tinker to Evers to Chance."

Tinker, Evers and Chance are still legendary heroes of Cubs fans. Some of the 2016 fans left trinkets and pennants at Ever's grave, in hopes, perhaps, of conjuring blessings and support from beyond the grave for the Cubs 2016 chances


Items Left at Grave of Johnny Evers, Chicago Cubs
1908 2nd Baseman
Baseball!  This game has been the one cultural item that is present in American history for more than a hundred years -- the World Series began in 1903.

A lot has happened since the Cubs won their last World Series championship:  the sinking of the Titanic, World War I and II, television, the moon landings, Mars landings (of robots), heart transplants, personal computers and mobile phones, to name a very few.  So I wondered:  how did people work and live and get around town in 1908?  Well I couldn't find much detail, but I did find some information.  According to the site The Daily Press, here are some facts about 1908:
  • The average life expectancy was 47 years.
  • The average wage in 1908 was 22 cents an hour. The average worker made $200 to $400 a year.
  • There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.
  • Only 8 percent of the homes had telephones.
  • Only 14 percent of the homes had bathtubs.
  • Only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.
  • Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write.
  • More than 95 percent of all births took place at home.
But they had professional baseball!

Additional information on the famous infield trio can be seen on Find-A-Grave.  Do look them up! They are linked below.

HILLARY'S OCTOBER SURPRISE (Payback's a Bitch) #MAGA

So it seems the FBI has reopened the Hillary email scandal/case.  Apparently,  the FBI found thousands of more government emails on the laptop of Anthony Weiner, the sexting nerd and former Democrat Congressman who likes to expose himself online.

The FBI was looking into Weiner's emails to find evidence that he was getting on-line randy with a 15 year old girl.  That's when they found the Hillary emails.  It seems Hillary's Muslin assistant, Weiner's wife, had been forwarding government emails from the government server to her own Yahoo email account.  What incredible cyber security!

So now, with the election only ten days away, Hillary has egg on her face.  Once more Hillary is undergoing FBI scrutiny to determine if she broke federal laws, with the possibility that she will be indicted and sent to prison.  Ouch, that's gotta hurt her election chances somewhat.

After Hillary's October surprise against Trump, instigating women of dubious veracity to step forward and claim that Trump groped them, this is satisfying payback.

BWA-HA-HA-HA!  Enjoy the stomach acid, Hillary.  Karma is so cool.

2016 Presidential Election: What's Really Going On?

Rush Limbaugh todays said he didn't really know what's going on with this election.  There are conflicting phenomena that lead to two different conclusions:  Hillary's victory, or Donald's?

Consider the following:
1. There are the polls, some of which show Trump ahead, others that show Hillary ahead.  The RCP poll average puts Hillary ahead by 5 points or more; however, the average is skewed by the ABC poll, which shows Hillary ahead by 10 points, a preposterous number.  Oversampled Democrats, perhaps?

2. Trump's political rallies show large crowds of enthusiastic supporters, where Hillary's show small crowds.  Adrienne at Adrienne's Corner said 50,000 people logged on to see Trump's Gettysburg speech, whereas only 900 logged on to see a same-day rally for Hillary.

3.  Texas is said to be "in play," with Trump leading by only a small amount. This is very hard to believe, since Texans generally hate everything Hillary stands for:  abortion, high taxes, unlimited immigration, etc.  Rigged polls, perhaps?

4.  Wikeleaks continues to reveal dirty tricks and illegalities by the Democrat National Committee on behalf of Hillary.  One of their revelations was a DNC document that recommended using false polls to overstate Hillary's "lead," thereby discouraging and depressing the Trump vote.  The same document also advocated acting as if the election were already won for Hillary, to accomplish the same goal.  [Source:  Gateway Pundit]

5.  Never-Trump RINOs like Jonah Goldberg and his ilk continue to propagandize for Hillary by opining that Trump has no chance of winning, and by highlighting every item of bad news for Trump, all while insulting and denigrating Trump personally as well.  With traitors like these, who needs Democrats?

Conclusions:  Anything can happen.  Dirty tricks and voter fraud will help Hillary's efforts, but the more reliable polls are close, with Donald ahead in 8 of the RCP polls, and Hillary ahead in only 6 of them.  Trump supporters are far more motivated, and many of Hillary's supporters may stay home on election day.  Trump can win.  Don't give up, get discouraged, or believe the Hillary hype.  Go to the polls on November 8 and vote for Donald Trump!

DONALD TRUMP'S GETTYSBURG SPEECH, 10/22/2016 (VIDEO)

Donald Trump explains his plans for his first 100 days in office. If you missed the live presentation today, you owe it to yourself to hear his amazing speech.



 

Hillary's Biggest Goal (#Photoshop)


Trump Could Win!

It's hard to know what to believe these days.  For many weeks the various polls at Realclearpolitics.com have indicated a smashing Clinton victory.  Lately, however, the polls seem to be turning around.  Today there are eight polls at Realclearpolitics.com that show Trump ahead, and six showing Clinton ahead.

I'm beginning to believe that Trump could actually win, in spite of the massive media bias against him.

Third Debate - 2016: Probably a Draw

The third presidential debate for 2016 just ended.  I watched the whole thing.  Here are my impressions:

1.  Chris Wallace was a substantially better moderator than the previous moderators in the first two debates.  He asked questions of Hillary that the prior moderators stayed away from, e.g., her using the Clinton Foundation for "pay for play" corruption.  Hillary slithered away from answering.

2.  Hillary was much better on specifics in some cases.  Her ability to quote names and places made her look informed and prepared, especially to people who don't have a clue.  Some of what she quoted was undoubtedly lies.  Hillary was the better speaker, and her responses were crisp and well enunciated.  Donald was far less scripted and more spontaneous, but also less polished.

3.  Both candidates were vague and nonspecific on economics questions, merely making unprovable claims of the wonders they will manifest when president.  Hillary's claims, however, were less credible, in my opinion.  She stressed government action to improve the economy, where Donald stressed using the private sector and growing the economic pie through lower taxes and less regulation.

4.  Trump was effective in bringing up Clinton campaign malfeasance in attempting to stoke violence at Trump rallies.  He also did a good job of answering the bimbo claims that he groped them.  He denied it, and said the claims have been debunked.

5.  Both candidates fell back on prior claims made in the two previous debates.

6.  It is doubtful that the debate changed many minds.

I noticed that most of the online comments by viewers were highly negative for Hillary, but that may be because I was watching the debate via the Fox News website.

Conclusions: the debate was a draw.  On to November 8!  Vote Trump.

Massive Corruption by Democrats Makes 2016 Election the Dirtiest Ever

In the last two or three days, a lot of information has come to light on the extreme corruption of the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign.  Here are a few tidbits for your consideration.

1.  The Obama State Department encouraged the FBI to declassify some of the classified emails on Clinton's private email server.  There was an attempt to bribe the FBI to change the classification of a Benghazi document to help Clinton lie about it, and falsely exonerate Hillary of illegal email use.

2.  James O'Keefe's Project Veritas surreptitiously recorded Democrat officials admitting that the DNC sought to disrupt Trump rallies through the use of violence.  Homeless people were cleaned up, bussed to the events, and encouraged to start fights and set fires.  The DNC also organized and planned the blocking of  traffic in Arizona to prevent people from attending a Trump rally there.  Two Trump rallies, one in Chicago and another in Minneapolis, were cancelled due to the threats of Democrat violence.  Trump rally attendees in San Jose, California were beaten up or egged.  Recently, in Maine, cars of Trump rally attendees were vandalized with spray paint.

3.  Massive voter fraud is in the works.  Thousands of ballots for Hillary were found in a warehouse in Ohio, and voter fraud investigations are underway in Texas, Indiana and elsewhere.

4.  The Democrat media refuses to cover damaging disclosures revealed by WikiLeaks, and John Kerry got Julian Assange's internet access turned off so WikiLeaks could not reveal any more emails or documents that are embarrassing to the DNC.

The intensity of Democrat malfeasance has never been this high.  If Hillary is so far ahead and expected to be the sure winner, why is such criminality necessary?  Perhaps the race is closer than that we have been told.
