Trump visits Texas

Trump visits the border. The barrier to unfettered immigration is a big deal this month. Typical tactical Trump goes to the heart of the matter, drawing public attention to the problem and the people who are dealing with it on a daily, up-close-and-personal basis. Nice tactically, and very good for the security of we the little people who inhabit this joint. Amazing to me is the physical risks The Donald takes and immense trust he displays in the Secret Service and others who work to keep him alive. The forces he is challenging are the same ones who killed Lincoln and Kennedy (both of the Kennedys, actually). This really appears to be a charmed life to me. I expect one […]

try, try again

Last time Trump invited Schumer and Pelosi to discuss border security they complained because he also invited television camera crews. This time he did not, but he did bring leadership from both isles of both houses together for the meeting. Afterwards all agreed that Trump walked out of the meeting when Pelosi answered his question about negotiating with a flat “NO”. I guess we are done here then, he said and left. The Schumer/Pelosi story to their co-conspiratory media was that Trump slammed his hands down on the table before departing. Nobody else seems to remember that at all, rather the quite typical firm, strong, but controlled Trump. Folks gotta believe who they want to, but I believe Nancy and […]

Trump from The Oval Office 1/8/2019

Watch it. My thoughts are no better than yours. It was a good speech and focused on a single, important topic. It is tough for his opposition to come up with anything rational against what he said. That won’t stop them, but it will make them look silly for doing so. I confess to not watching the opposition show. Those people are too shallow and predictable to gain my attention. Moreso, I would have been throwing things at the screen is a screaming rage at their insanity and duplicity. Instead, I am at peace with myself and my world. ๐Ÿ™‚ —– Oh, but one disappointment. I was really hoping The Donald would eliminate The Flag of The Admiralty. I […]

Trump directly addresses the nation tonight, January 8, 2019

“Announcement on Twitter from @realDonaldTrump I am pleased to inform you that I will Address the Nation on the Humanitarian and National Security crisis on our Southern Border. Tuesday night at 9:00 P.M. Eastern” That is: 8:00 Central, 7:00 Mountain, 6:00 Pacific This is apparently his first official address from The Oval Office. Not everybody is excited that he can and will do it, but it promises to be 8 minutes worth watching. I do not think mainstream broadcast media can avoid showing it, though they can snipe the heck out of it afterward. Probably the best course of action is to watch it on the Internet, replay it a few times to check for nuances. Odds are rather […]

indicators

I am confident it will blow. Too many aspects of our socio-political world are at the brink and some with significant velocity heading towards their particular precipice. When, how much, and which ones are unknowns, but The End Of The World As We Know It (TEOTWAWKI) is coming soon. I watch a lot of indicators. Knowing early is important. The prices of gold and silver are controlled by the major players in the COMEX, the commercial metals exchange market. Over 95 percent of the trades are paper promises, unrelated to the actual metal. The biggest criminal organizations in the world keep these prices artificially low for a number of reasons, all related to their wealth and power. This tells us […]

Occasional Cortex

Cerebral Cortex -The largest division of the brain. It is divided into two hemispheres, each of which is divided into four lobes. Cerebral Cortex. Cerebral. Cortex. Cerebellum. A nobody from one of the nation’s largest cities, never held a real job, never produced anything, listed work history is “community organizer”, funded by George Soros to win election out of nowhere. This is the resume that turned a gay Kenyan into POTUS. Now we get a repeat of that with this privileged brat “from the Bronx” who is apparently as smart as a box of rocks, but neither intelligence nor integrity are required for election in New York City or apparently many other population centers in the USofA. The good news […]

Think your weight loss program is behind?

The failure to achieve our desired weight/fitness goals can be debilitating. I have known some who simply gave up. Mobility, vigor, physical competence were all beyond their reach … ever. They just gave up. Well few of you have as far to go as Kasey King. Look at your situation and imagine that you started losing weight at 700 pounds and are already half-way to healthy. Or give up and head towards matching him. I turned a corner when faced with switching my entire wardrobe to XL. NO! Where does that stop? I revolted prior to becoming revolting… dropped from 220 to 180. Still 10 or more over ideal, but close enough to remain active at my advanced age. I […]

Who is an engineer?

When I realized in 1998 that my location was The Problem, I did not look at the other two left-coast states as the solution. They quite obviously were the same as California, just a few years behind. Thus it is unsurprising to me that the Oregon bureaucracy and political culture just got spanked for attempting to DICTATE who may or may not claim to be “an engineer”. For gosh sakes, could we all just agree on what is honest and real? Or do the pompous legislators get to determine that for all of us? Just because you do not take an interest in politics does not mean politics will not take an interest in you. Well, U.S. Magistrate Judge […]
