“All Of A Sudden”: Hillary Poised to Complete Obama’s Mission!

August 25, 2016

“All Of A Sudden”: Obama’s Mess!

The following was sent to me by patriot Joe Grunert. I assume that it is something that he found floating in cyberspace.

This hard-hitting bit of  history had no author associated with it. I have therefore taken the liberty to edit it slightly and present it here for your consideration. 

Please read and think about the following and what it will mean to you and your loved ones if all of this continues to go the wrong way.

V. Thomas Mawhinney, 8/25/16


Before Obama, there was virtually no great and fearful presence of Radical Islam in America .

• All of a sudden, Islam is taught in schools. Christianity and the
bible are banned in schools.

• All of a sudden we must allow prayer rugs everywhere and allow for
Islamic prayer in schools, airports, and businesses.

• All of a sudden we must stop serving pork in prisons.

• All of a sudden we are inundated with law suits by Muslims who are
offended by American culture.

• All of a sudden we must allow burkas to be worn everywhere even
though you have no idea who or what is covered up under them.

• All of a sudden Muslims are suing employers and refusing to do their
jobs if they personally deem it conflicts with Sharia Law.

• All of a sudden the Attorney General of the United States vows to
prosecute anyone who engages in ‘anti-Muslim speech’.

• All of a sudden, Jihadists who engage in terrorism and openly admit
they acted in the name of Islam and ISIS are emphatically declared
NOT be Islamic by our leaders..or, their actions are
determined NOT to be terrorism, but as result of other nebulous cause like
“workplace violence”, or “Hate Crimes”, etc..

• All of a sudden, it becomes Policy that Secular Middle East
dictators that were benign or friendly to the West, must be replaced
by Islamist’s and the Muslim Brotherhood.

• All of a sudden our troops are withdrawn from Iraq and the middle
east, giving rise to ISIS .

• All of a sudden, America has reduced its nuclear stockpiles to 1950
levels, as Obama’s stated goal of a nuke-free America by the time he
leaves office continues uninterrupted.

• All of a sudden, a deal with Iran must be made at any cost, with a
pathway to nuclear weapons and HUNDREDS of BILLIONS of dollars handed
over to fund their programs.

• All of a sudden America APOLOGIZES to Muslim states and sponsors of
terror worldwide for acts of aggression, war, and sabotage THEY
perpetrate against our soldiers.

• All of a sudden, the American Navy is diminished to 1917 Pre-World
War I levels Of only 300 ships. The Army is at pre-1940 levels. The
Air Force scraps 500 planes and planned to retire the use of the A-10
Thunderbolt close air support fighter.  A further draw down of another
40,000 military personnel is in progress.

• All of a sudden half of our aircraft carriers are recalled for
maintenance by Obama rendering the Atlantic unguarded, NONE are in the
Middle East .

• All of a sudden Obama has to empty Guantanamo Bay of captured
Jihadists and let them loose in Jihad-friendly Islamic states.  He
demands to close the facility.

• All of a sudden America will negotiate with terrorists and trade
FIVE Taliban commanders for a deserter and Jihad sympathizer.

• All of a sudden there is no money for American poor, disabled
veterans, jobless Americans, hungry Americans, or displaced Americans
but there is endless money for Obama’s “Syrian refugee” resettlement

• All of sudden there is an ammunition shortage in the USA .

• All of a sudden, the most important thing for Obama to do after a
mass shooting by two Jihadists, is disarm American citizens.

• All of a sudden, the President of the United States cannot attend
the Christian funerals of a Supreme Court Justice and a former First
Lady because of previous (seemingly unimportant) commitments.

All of a sudden, I’m sick to my stomach.  I’m not sure that the majority of
Americans recognize the seriousness of the situation and how much
“progress” has been made by Radical Islam these last 7 years, a very brief
time compared to a 75 year lifetime!

Oh, yes! And, all of a sudden crooked-lying Hillary Clinton and her sex addicted crooked-lying ex-President husband are poised to take-over Obama’s role as President and first “1st husband”of America.

Worse-yet, they are poised to continue Obama’s corrupt, deceitful and traitorous America-killing shenanigans and among more of the same, increase the flow of unvetted Muslims into America from radical Islamic areas of the world.

Wake-up America: do not let this happen!

Please forward this message to all of your friends,
relatives. neighbors.



Allen West: Democrat’s Subjugation of Blacks

Allen West: Democrat’s Subjugation of Blacks

I hope you will read the following article and send it to everyone you know.

This is one of the best explanations I have read, detailing the ways in which the Democratic Party has destroyed a once largely pro-social and adaptive black culture within America.

It is a great American tragedy that in recent history progressive/radical liberal democrats have continued to enslave so many blacks to a cycle of poverty and governmental dependency.  The democrats have thereby conscripted  the black vote in order to stay in power and further their increasingly radical progressive/socialist agenda.

The story that Allen West tells about all of this is a profound disgrace within American politics.

I thank patriot Joe Grunert for sending this article to me.

“A Religion of Peace”: The Fatal Deceit!

June 23, 2016

“A Religion of Peace”: The Fatal Deceit!

Informed Americans already know this.

Those who profess not to know and who vigorously defend Western Civilization’s liberal/progressive policies on Islamic immigration are either uninformed, lying, or they are made pathologically blind by their psychotic political ideology.

Their pathetic refrain is often: “I know some good Muslims”.

During WWII, people could well have said: “I know some good Germans, Japanese, or Italians”, etc.

Nowhere have I seen a more succinct and factual presentation of the precise horror and destruction that is faced by America and the whole of the Non-Islamic world, than in the following video.

I beg you to sit-back and see the truth about Islam revealed to perfection.

Every time this Britisher says the name Cameron (British Prime Minister), substitute the names, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, the two most powerful purveyors of destruction for America and the Free World.

Wake-Up Americans!

“545 People” Cause U. S. Problems

May 4, 2016


  • “545 People” Cause U.S. Problems

    The following article was written by Charley Reese, a writer for the Orlando Sentinel. It has been authenticated by Snopes.

    The following is quoted from Snopes.

    Claim:   Charley Reese penned an editorial about 545 people being “responsible for the domestic problems that plague” the U.S.


    Example:   [Reese, 1995]

    Politicians, as I have often said, are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

    Everything on the Republican contract is a problem created by Congress. Too much bureaucracy? Blame Congress. Too many rules?

    Blame Congress. Unjust tax laws? Congress wrote them.

    Out-of-control bureaucracy? Congress authorizes everything bureaucracies do. Americans dying in Third World rat holes on stupid U.N. missions? Congress allows it. The annual deficits?

    Congress votes for them. The $4 trillion plus debt? Congress created it.

    To put it into perspective just remember that 100 percent of the power of the federal government comes from the U.S. Constitution. If it’s not in the Constitution, it’s not authorized.

    Then read your Constitution. All 100 percent of the power of the federal government is invested solely in 545 individual human beings. That’s all. Of 260 million Americans, only 545 of them wield 100 percent of the power of the federal government.

    That’s 435 members of the U.S. House, 100 senators, one president and nine Supreme Court justices. Anything involving government that is wrong is 100 percent their fault.

    I exclude the vice president because constitutionally he has no power except to preside over the Senate and to vote only in the case of a tie. I exclude the Federal Reserve because Congress created it and all its power is power Congress delegated to it and could withdraw anytime it chooses to do so. In fact, all the power exercised by the 3 million or so other federal employees is power delegated from the 545.

    All bureaucracies are created by Congress or by executive order of the president. All are financed and staffed by Congress. All enforce laws passed by Congress.

    All operate under procedures authorized by Congress. That’s why all complaints and protests should be properly directed at Congress, not at the individual agencies.

    You don’t like the IRS? Go see Congress. You think the Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms agency is running amok? Go see Congress.

    Congress is the originator of all government problems and is also the only remedy available. That’s why, of course, politicians go to such extraordinary lengths and employ world-class sophistry to make you think they are not responsible. Anytime a congressman pretends to be outraged by something a federal bureaucrat does, he is in fact engaging in one big massive con job. No federal employee can act at all except to enforce laws passed by Congress and to employ procedures authorized by Congress either explicitly or implicitly.

    Partisans on both sides like to blame presidents for deficits, but all deficits are congressional deficits. The president may, by custom, recommend a budget, but it carries no legal weight. Only Congress is authorized by the Constitution to authorize and appropriate and to levy taxes. That’s what the federal budget consists of: expenditures authorized, funds appropriated and taxes levied.

    Both Democrats and Republicans mislead the public. For 40 years Democrats had majorities and could have at any time balanced the budget if they had chosen to do so. Republicans now have majorities and could, if they choose, pass a balanced budget this year. Every president, Democrat or Republican, could have vetoed appropriations bills that did not make up a balanced budget. Every president could have recommended a balanced budget. None has done either.

    We have annual deficits and a huge federal debt because that’s what majorities in Congress and presidents in the White House wanted. We have troops in various Third World rat holes because Congress and the president want them there.

    Don’t be conned. Don’t let them escape responsibility. We simply have to sort through 260 million people until we find 545 who will act responsibly.


     Origins:   Journalist Charley Reese (now retired) was part of the Orlando Sentinel‘s staff for three decades between 1971-2001, during which time he (among other duties) penned a thrice-weekly column which was distributed to other newspapers nationwide by King Features Syndicate. During the 1980s Reese wrote the first version of an editorial opining that 545 people (i.e., the President of the United States, plus all the members of Congress and the Supreme Court) “are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country,” and he has amended, updated, and republished that piece several times since then. The version cited above is taken from the 7 March 1995 edition of the Orlando Sentinel, where it ran under the title “Looking for Someone to Blame? Congress Is a Good Place to Start.”

    By way of comparison, here is another version of Reese’s piece, as it appeared in 1985:


    Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

    Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why if all politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes?

    You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don’t have Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don’t write the tax code. Congress does. You and I don’t set fiscal policy. Congress does. You and I don’t control monetary policy. The Federal Reserve Bank does.

    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president and nine Supreme Court justices — 545 human beings out of 235 million — are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

    I excused the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered by private central bank.

    I exclude all of the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it.

    No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislators’ responsibility to determine how he votes.

    Don’t you see the con game that is played on the people by the politicians? Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

    What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of Tip O’Neill, who stood up and criticized Ronald Reagan for creating deficits.

    The president can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it. The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating appropriations and taxes.

    Those 545 people and they alone are responsible. They and they alone should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses — provided they have the gumption to manage their own employees.

    In 2008, Reese’s editorial was updated with some topical political references (e.g., Nancy Pelosi’s name in place of Tip O’Neill’s; the Army and Marines listed as being in Iraq rather than on “U.N. Missions”) and circulated via e-mail under the title “The 545 People Responsible for America’s Woes” (or just “545 People), often with additional material not written by Reese himself tacked onto the beginning or end of the article.

    I Don’t Like Trump: But!!

    December 12, 2015

    I Don’t Like Trump: But!!

    Trump has the vocabulary of a 7th grader.

    He is crude, vulgar and highly repetitious in his not-so-“tremendous” speeches, though he does better when he is grilled by Bill O’Reilly and other no nonsense-interviewers.

    Talking heads and politicians do not know what to make of this guy. I am a psychologist, and frankly I do not know either. To be honest, it scares me to think of Trump in the Oval Office.

    Yet, he attended a top university and he has built the nest-egg his father gifted him into a grand and amazing fortune.  Obviously, has competed with the smartest, meanest and toughest all-out capitalists in the world…including those in totalitarian nations  and he has been victorious.

    In all of this, Trump has come far-out on top financially and that could not be done without playing very skilled hardball-politics with a lot of very smart people.

    Yes, Trump still scares me.

    But, I am infinitely more frightened of traitor Obama’s lying, cheating Marxist/Leninist replacement-in-training, Hillary Clinton.

    Frankly, I am also more frightened of the majority of “establishment” republicans competing with Trump for the Presidential Candidacy. I beg you to note that America has been in steady decline since the passing of President Reagan, no matter which party has been in office. The more liberal/socialist our American Presidents have been, the more our social, economic and cultural decline deepens.

    Recently, so-called conservatives are parroting, like idiots: “Its against the Constitution to keep people of a certain religion out of America”;  worse yet…”That’s not America”, or “That’s not who we are”.

    A large percent of America’s electorate squawks  the same vacuous drivel like a flock of  mynah birds.

    Do these individuals not know the difference between a purely humanitarian, pro-social religion that worships a benevolent God and one that is a murderous Totalitarian Theocracy!?

    We have the right as a sovereign nation to  close our borders to immigrants any time we think it is in America’s best interests to do so. It has been done many times before and it must be done now.

    Of course, I cannot trust the democrats. They are now mostly rank socialists; radical liberal progressives who embrace the despicable revolutionary teachings of Hillary’s early mentor,  Saul Alinsky.

    I cannot trust the so-called “conservative republican” front runners (Bush, Rubio and Cruz) who have all let it be known that they will support thousands of new Islamic people who they want to  immigrate to America while our streets run with the blood of our citizens. American blood spilled by Islamic immigrant murders, be they first or second generation.

    These are the never-ending gifts from Islam armed with box cutters, knives, improvised explosive devices, AK 47’s, AR 15’s and every other manner of weapon they can get their hands on; including planes,  potentially dirty nuclear bombs, poisons, and pestilence.

    Islam’s representatives are flooding into societies around the world and to our shores with whatever it takes to infiltrate, organize, politic, terrify, propagate and kill or convert we Infidels to Islam.

    All of this at a time when America’s government will not bend  Every Effort to protect us from the stealth Islamic killers who are already in America and those who are continuing to sneak across our borders.

    Regarding Politicians: For all time; do not listen to what they say….watch what they do and then vote accordingly.

    Many think that the idiosyncratic Donald Trump is exactly what America needs in our time of unprecedented peril.

    But, only the unavailable history of this WWIII will provide such answers.

    Nothing in this time is reassuring and now I understand how our parents must have felt in the throes of WWII.

    It is time to build a fortress and guard the ramparts.

    I’m with Ann Coulter on the issue of Islamic immigration. Please read the following and know where you stand and why. Then vote accordingly.

    Will Liberals Let Us Institutionalize The Dangerously Mentally Ill? No.

    October 2, 2015

    Will Liberals Let Us Institutionalize The Dangerously Mentally Ill?   No.

    Well, there has been another mass killing in America. It makes me want to vomit.

    I do not know if this guy was an Islamic Terrorist, or a severely mentally ill killer on the loose. Someone has reported that he had ties to a white supremacist group, though the logical connection from there to this tragic college shooting episode is yet unexplained.

    Whatever is the case, predictably, Obama immediately blamed guns. Of course it is essential for him to do so because a comprehensive and intelligent analysis of the many real and interacting causes of America’s tragic decline into behavioral chaos will go straight to his own liberal/progressive ideology. An ideology that has made steady growth in America over the past decades and has finally culminated in his own Presidential Marxist regime, as well as our present bloated and corrupted system of government.

    The result of this spiritual/political/psychological/sociological spiral-of- death is  modern America: A stunningly diminished and grotesque shadow of its former self.

    If you have read my other blogs on America’s decline, you will know exactly what I am referring to. I have now written over 1200 articles on this and other related concerns.

    Please enter any search term that might be associated with Mass Murder, America’s Decline, Socialists, Progressives, etc., and see the truth…as best I can know it.

    God’s Blessings to you and your loved ones. Please vote and remonstrate with your political  representatives accordingly.

    Now, please see this related blog, published on 9/20/13, below.

    V. Thomas Mawhinney, Ph.D., 10/2/15


    As a psychologist, with over 40 years of experience, I endorse Ann Coulter’s article below. She speaks the truth on this issue.

    Please search my site for former blogs on the “mentally Ill”. simply enter that term in the search box to the upper right and click return.

    Thanks to Joe Grunert for forwarding  Ann Coulter’s article ( in red) to me.

    VTM, 9/20/13 


    The following was written by Ann Coulter.

    There’s been another mass shooting by a crazy person, and liberals still refuse to consider institutionalizing the dangerous mentally ill.   The man who shot up the Washington Navy Yard on Monday, Aaron Alexis, heard voices speaking to him through the walls. He thought people were following him. He believed microwave ovens were sending vibrations through his body. There are also reports that Alexis believed the Obamacare exchanges were ready to go.

    Anyone see any bright red flags of paranoid schizophrenia? (Either that, or Obama’s NSA is way better than we thought!)   But Alexis couldn’t be institutionalized because the left has officially certified the mentally ill as “victims,” and once you’re a victim, all that matters is that you not be “stigmatized.”
    But here’s the problem: Coddling the mentally ill isn’t even helping the mentally ill. Ask the sisters of crazy homeless woman “Billie Boggs” how grateful they were to the ACLU for keeping Boggs living on the streets of New York City. Ask the parents of Aaron Alexis, James Holmes (Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooter), Jared Loughner (Tucson, Ariz., mall shooter) or Seung-Hui Cho (Virginia Tech shooter) how happy they are that their sons weren’t institutionalized.

    Tellingly, throughout the last three decades, the overall homicide rate has been in free fall, thanks to Republican crime policies, from 10 per 100,000 in 1980 to 4 per 100,000 today. (You might even call them “common sense” crime policies.) But the number of mass shootings has skyrocketed from 4 per year, between 1900 and 1970, to 29 per year since then.   Something seems to have gone horribly wrong right around 1970. What could it be? Was it the introduction of bell-bottoms?

    That date happens to correlate precisely with when the country began throwing the mentally ill out of institutions in 1969. Your memory of there not being as many mass murders a few decades ago is correct. Your memory of there not being as many homeless people a few decades ago is also correct.   But liberals won’t allow the dangerous mentally ill to be committed to institutions against their will. (The threat of commitment is very persuasive in getting disturbed individuals to take their medicine.) Something in liberals’ genetic makeup compels them to attack civilization, for example, by defending the right of dangerous psychotics to refuse treatment and then representing them in court after they commit murder.  Liberals won’t even agree to take the most basic steps to prevent psychotics from purchasing guns — yes, GUNS! — because to allow the release of mental health information would be “stigmatizing.” We’re not talking about anorexic girls here. We just need shrinks to tell us if potential gun purchasers are paranoid schizophrenics.

    The disastrous consequences of the deinstitutionalization movement is described in E. Fuller Torrey’s book, “The Insanity Offense: How America’s Failure to Treat the Seriously Mentally Ill Endangers Its Citizens.” Torrey’s book reads like a compendium of America’s most heinous murders since the early ’70s — all of which could have been stopped with involuntary commitment laws, and none of which could have been stopped even with a complete gun ban.   Here are a few:   — “Mary Maloney had decapitated her infant daughter and year-old son. Her husband had tried to have her psychiatrically hospitalized prior to the crime, but she had not met the (legal) criteria for dangerousness.” — “Charles Soper had killed his wife, three children, and himself two weeks after being discharged from Camarillo State Hospital because he failed to qualify as ‘imminently dangerous.’” — “In April 1973… Edmund Kemper (who had been released from a mental hospital a few years earlier when the deinstitutionalization act became law) had been arrested after he bludgeoned his mother to death, then strangled her friend who came to visit. Kemper was also charged with the murders of six female hitchhikers.” Kemper had originally been institutionalized after murdering his grandparents at age 15 because “he tired of their company.”

    In 1972 and 1973, paranoid schizophrenic Herb Mullin went on a killing spree in California that left 13 dead, including a 72-year-old World War I veteran, a college coed, four teenaged campers and a mother with her two little boys, murdered as they played with marbles.   Mullin killed his victims with a baseball bat, knives, his fists, as well as with guns. How’s your “high-capacity” magazine ban going to stop that, Democrats? How would piling on yet more gun control laws have helped the priest whom Herb Mullin beat, kicked and stabbed to death?   What about the elderly boarders that Dorothea Puente — diagnosed with schizophrenia — poisoned and buried in her backyard?   What additional gun restrictions would have helped the group of bicyclists Linda Scates intentionally drove her car into because voices were telling her to “kill the demons”?

    In the decades since the deinstitutionalization movement began, more and more people kept being killed as a result of that movement — including the deinstitutionalized themselves. According to Torrey, between 1970 and 2004, the mentally ill were responsible for at least 4,700 murders in California.   Increasing government spending on mental health programs is not going to stop the mentally ill from committing murder. Like liberals, these are people too sick even to know they need help. As Herschel Hardin, whose son was schizophrenic, wrote in the Vancouver Sun: “If you think you are Jesus Christ or an avenging angel, you are not likely to agree that you need to go to the hospital.”   Liberals will pretend to have missed the news that the Washington Navy Yard shooter was a paranoid schizophrenic. They refuse to acknowledge that the mass murder problem — as well as the homeless problem — only began after crazy people were thrown out of institutions in the 1970s. They tell us crapping in your pants on a New York City sidewalk is a “civil right.” They say that haranguing passersby on the street about your persecution by various movie stars is a form of “free speech.”   Only after a mass murder committed by a psychotic with a firearm do liberals spring to life and suggest a solution: Take away everyone’s guns.   Taking guns away from the mentally stable only makes us less safe: Even psychotics know enough to keep choosing “Gun-Free Zones” for their mass murders.

    If Americans are serious about preventing massacres like the ones at the Washington Navy Yard, Newtown, Tucson, Aurora and Virginia Tech, it’s time to review our civil commitment laws.

    After this latest shooting, will the left finally let us do something about the dangerously mentally ill?

    Hillary Clinton For President?

    August 16, 2015

    Hillary Clinton For President?

    The following is something sent me by a good friend. It was a “forward” and something that had apparently been floating around the internet. I normally do not post such things on my blog, but this one is different.

    I am old enough to recall the news coverage of the Clinton’s political years before and during Bill’s Presidency. I am therefore certain about  nearly all of the assertions put forward in the following statements.

    My only uncertainties relate to the numbers that were quoted by the unknown author. These may or may not be correct. However, my own research validated the 850,000 dollar figure in the settlement for Paula Jones.

    I am certain that in the main, the following is the truth about Bill and Hillary Clinton’s devious and shameful legacy.

    Hillary Clinton for President? You had better hope not!

    Note: I am sorry that I cannot correct the formatting of this internet communication. It is easily read, however.


    When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume
    authority over health care reform. Even after threats and
    intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a Democrat-controlled
    Congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in
    cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

    Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female
    attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood.
    Both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she
    chose Janet Reno. Husband Bill described her selection as “my worst
    mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas
    David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas,
    resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.

    Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of
    the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guinier was her selection. When a
    little probing led to the discovery of Ms. Guinier’s radical views,
    her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

    Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some
    more recommendations. She chose former law partners Webb Hubbell for
    the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and
    William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well:
    Hubbell went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

    Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary
    wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry
    Thompson, and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She
    managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their
    reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a 36-month
    investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale, was charged with a
    crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White
    House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

    Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend
    a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of
    Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated
    for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies
    (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff,
    suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone,
    and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.
    Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office
    after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.

    Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual
    harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the
    “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense. One of her more notable
    decisions in the debacle was: She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones. {I believe the sum was $850,000.}

    She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the
    appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million of
    taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica
    Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.
    Bill Clinton was impeached but was not removed from office. On the day
    before leaving office, Clinton agreed to a five-year suspension of his
    Arkansas law license as part of an agreement with the independent
    counsel to end the investigation. Based on this state bar suspension,
    Clinton was automatically suspended from the United States Supreme
    Court bar and allowed 40 days to appeal an otherwise-automatic disbarment; Clinton chose to
    resign during the appeals period.}

    Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice
    during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I
    have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.

    After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an
    estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.

    What a swell party! Ready for another four-or eight-year of this type
    low-life mess?

    Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails
    while Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of
    the Clinton Foundation.

    We have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to her loyal fans:
    “What difference does it make?”

    Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting Satan
    absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!

    America Divorces Progressives and Radical Liberals!

    July 2, 2015

    American Divorces Progressives and Radical Liberals!
    The person who wrote the following Divorce Agreement is supposedly a college law student. If this is true, and if there are many of like-minded college students… maybe there is hope for America after all.

    This is really an entertaining, even a thought-provoking read, no matter who wrote it! Whether you are a liberal or a conservative—take time the read the following.


    Dear American liberals, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Obama supporters, et al: We have stuck together since the late 1950’s for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.

    Our two ideological sides of America cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let’s just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way.

    Here is our separation agreement:

    –Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy! Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.

    –We don’t like redistributive taxes so you can keep them.

    –You are welcome to the liberal judges and the ACLU.

    –Since you hate guns and war, we’ll take our firearms, the cops, the NRA and the military.

    –We’ll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and the coal mines, and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel.

    –You can keep Oprah, Michael Moore and Rosie O’Donnell. You are, however, responsible for finding a bio-diesel vehicle big enough to move all three of them.

    –We’ll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Wal-Mart and Wall Street.

    –You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, food stamps, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and illegal aliens.

    –We’ll keep the hot Alaskan hockey moms, greedy CEO’s and rednecks.

    –We’ll keep Bill O’Reilly, and Bibles and give you NBC and Hollywood .

    –You can make nice with Iran and Palestine and we’ll retain the right to invade and hammer places that threaten us.

    –You can have the peaceniks and war protesters.
    — When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we’ll help provide them security.

    –We’ll keep our Judeo-Christian values.

    –You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Shirley McClain. You can also have the U.N. but we will no longer be paying the bill.

    –We’ll keep the SUV’s, pickup trucks and over-sized luxury cars. You can take every Volt and Leaf you can find.

    –You can give everyone healthcare if you can find any practicing doctors.

    –We’ll keep “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “The National Anthem.”

    –I’m sure you’ll be happy to substitute “Imagine”, “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”, “Kum Ba Ya” or “We Are the World”.

    –We’ll practice trickle-down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot.

    –Since it often so offends you, we’ll keep our history, our name and our flag.

    Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded liberal and conservative patriots and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I’ll bet you might think about which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.


    John J. Wall

    Law Student and an American

    P.S. Also, please take Ted Turner, Sean Penn, Martin & Charlie Sheen, Barbara Streisand, ( Hanoi ) Jane Fonda with you.

    P.S.S. And you won’t have to press 1 for English when you call our country.

    Forward This Every Time You Get It ! Let’s Keep This Going, Maybe Some Of It Will Start Sinking In!!

    …….. by Dennis Prager


    I have been broadcasting for 31 years and writing for longer than that. I do not recall ever saying on radio or in print that a president is doing lasting damage to our country. I did not like the presidencies of Jimmy Carter (the last Democrat I voted for) or Bill Clinton. Nor did I care for the compassionate conservatism of George W. Bush. In modern political parlance compassionate is a euphemism for ever-expanding government.
    But I have never written or broadcast that our country was being seriously damaged by a president. So it is with great that I write that President Barack Obama has done and continues to do major damage to America .. The only question is whether this can ever be undone.
    This is equally true domestically and internationally.
    Domestically, his policies have had a grave impact on the American economy.
    He has overseen the weakest recovery from a recession in modern American history.
    He has mired the country in unprecedented levels of debt: about $6.5 trillion that is 6,500 billion in five years (this after calling his predecessor unpatriotic for adding nearly $5 trillion in eight years (after 9/11).
    He has fashioned a country in which more Americans now receive government aid means-tested, let alone non-means-tested than work full-time.
    He has no method of paying for this debt other than printing more money thereby surreptitiously taxing everyone through inflation, including the poor he claims to be helping, and cheapening the dollar to the point that some countries are talking about another reserve currency and saddling the next generations with enormous debts.
    With his 2,500-page Affordable Care Act he has made it impossible for hundreds of thousands, soon millions, of Americans to keep their individual or employer-sponsored group health insurance; he has stymied American medical innovation with an utterly destructive tax on medical devices; and he has caused hundreds of thousands of workers to lose full-time jobs because of the health-care costs imposed by Obamacare on employers.

    His Internal Revenue Service used its unparalleled power to stymie political dissent. No one has been held accountable.
    His ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered by terrorists in Benghazi , Libya … No one has been blamed. The only blame the Obama administration has leveled was on a video maker in California who had nothing to do with the assault.
    In this presidents White House the buck stops nowhere.
    Among presidents in modern American history, he has also been a uniquely divisive force. It began with his forcing Obama care through Congress the only major legislation in American history to be passed with no votes from the opposition party.
    Though he has had a unique opportunity to do so, he has not only not helped heal racial tensions, he has exacerbated them. His intrusions into the Trayvon Martin affair (If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon) and into the confrontation between a white police officer and a black Harvard professor (the police acted stupidly) were unwarranted, irresponsible, demagogic, and, most of all, divisive.
    He should have been reassuring black Americans that America is in fact the least racist country in the world something he should know as well as anybody, having been raised only by whites and being the first (half) black elected the leader of a white-majority nation.
    Instead, he echoed the inflammatory speech of professional race-baiters such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.
    He has also divided the country by economic class, using classic Marxist language against the rich and corporate profits.
    Regarding America in the world, he has been, if possible, even more damaging. The United States is at its weakest, has fewer allies, and has less military and diplomatic influence than at any time since before World War II.
    One wonders if there is a remaining ally nation that trusts him.
    And worse, no American enemy fears him. If you are a free movement (the democratic Iranian and Syrian oppositions) or a free country (Israel), you have little or no reason to believe that you have a steadfast ally in the United States .
    Even non-democratic allies no longer trust America. Barack Obama has alienated our most important and longest standing Arab allies, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Both the anti-Muslim Brotherhood and the anti-Iran Arab states have lost respect for him.
    And his complete withdrawal of American troops from Iraq has left that country with weekly bloodbaths.
    Virtually nothing Barack Obama has done has left America or the world better since he became president. Nearly everything he has touched has been made worse.

    He did, however, promise before the 2008 election that We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America … That is the one promise he has kept.

    What does it take for the American people to WAKE UP?

    Send this to your friends – we are losing this country!

    Two Americas

    April 30, 2014


    I will be leaving for the U.P. of Michigan tomorrow, early. I look forward to the cold, snow still on the ground in shady areas, campfires, and the little cast iron stove in the cozy cabin. Think I’ll play guitar, shoot some tin cans, sip some Jack (Jack will be back) and enjoy being with my sweet Sally, brothers and sisters and wonderful spouses. And there will be three to four dogs to keep us entertained when we are bored with people!

    I will post from the Indian library, as usual, though it will not be daily.

    Please check-in every couple of days because I can’t quit posting stuff that I hope you will find interesting. Also, just type in any descriptor word that you might be interested in, in the search box on the upper right side of my web-page. Chances are good that I will have something for you on that topic. I am now nearing 1200 blogs and still going!

    The following is something that floats around the internet (author unknown). My buddy Joe Grunert sent it to me. I wish that I would have written it…it comes straight from our hearts to you…from us.

    Best Wishes,

    Tom Mawhinney


    Two Americas

    The Democrats are right, there are two Americas.

    The America that works, and the America that doesn’t. The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t.

    It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the do’s and the don’ts. Some people do their duty as Americans, to obey the law and support themselves and contribute to society, and others don’t.

    That’s the divide in America.

    It’s not about income inequality, it’s about civic irresponsibility. It’s about a political party that preaches hatred, greed and victimization in order to win elective office. It’s about a political party that loves power more than it loves its country.

    That’s not invective, that’s truth.

    And it’s about time someone said it.

    The politics of envy was on proud display as the president said he would pledge the rest of his term to fighting “income inequality.” He notes that some people make more than other people, that some people have higher incomes than others, and he says that’s not just.

    It was the rationale of thievery.

    The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you.

    “Vote Democrat”!

    It is the electoral philosophy that gave us Detroit. It is the electoral philosophy that is destroying America.

    And it conceals a fundamental deviation from American values and common sense. It ends up not being a benefit to the people who support it, but a betrayal. The Democrats have not empowered their followers, they have enslaved them – in a culture of dependence and entitlement, of victimhood and anger instead of ability and hope.

    The president’s premise – that you reduce income inequality by debasing the successful – seeks to ignore and cheat the law of choices and consequences. It seeks to deny the successful the consequences of their choices and spare the unsuccessful the consequences of their choices.

    Because, by and large, the variability in society is a result of different choices leading to different consequences. Those who choose wisely and responsibly have a far greater likelihood of success, while those who choose foolishly and irresponsibly have a far greater likelihood of failure.

    And success and failure can manifest themselves in personal and family income.

    You choose to drop out of high school or to skip college and you are apt to have a different outcome than someone who gets a diploma and pushes on with purposeful education. You have your children out of wedlock and life is apt to take one course, you have them in wedlock and life is apt to take another course.

    Most often in life our destination is determined by the course we take.

    My doctor, for example, makes far more than I do. There is significant income inequality between us. Our lives have had an inequality of outcome. But, our lives also have had an inequality of effort. Whereas my doctor went to college and then gave the flower of his young adulthood to medical school and residency, I got a job in a restaurant. He made a choice, I made a choice. And our choices led us to different outcomes.

    His outcome pays a lot better than mine.

    Does that mean he cheated and Barack Obama needs to take away his wealth?

    No, it means we are both free men.

    And in a free society, free choices will lead to different outcomes.

    It is not inequality Barack Obama will take away, it is freedom.

    The freedom to succeed, and the freedom to fail. And there is no true option for success if there is no true option for failure.

    The pursuit of happiness means a whole lot less when you face the punitive hand of government if your pursuit brings you more happiness than the other guy.

    Even if the other guy sat on his arse and did nothing.

    Even if the other guy made a lifetime’s worth of asinine and shortsighted decisions.

    Barack Obama and the Democrats preach equality of outcome as a right, while completely ignoring inequality of effort. The simple Law of the Harvest – as ye sow, so shall ye reap – is sometimes applied as, “The harder you work, the more you get.”

    The progressive movement would turn that upside down.

    Those who achieve are to be punished as enemies of society and those who fail are to be rewarded as wards of society. Entitlement has replaced effort as the key to upward mobility in American society.

    Or at least it has if Barack Obama gets his way.

    He seeks a lowest common denominator society in which the government besieges the successful and productive and fosters equality through mediocrity.

    He and his party speak of two Americas.

    And their grip on power is based on using the votes of one to sap the productivity of the other.

    America is not divided by the differences in our outcomes, it is divided by the differences in our efforts. And by the false philosophy that says one man’s success comes about unavoidably as the result of another man’s victimization.

    What the president offered was not a solution, but a separatism. He fomented division and strife, he pitted one set of Americans against another.

    For his own political benefit.

    That’s what progressives offer. Marxist class warfare wrapped up with a bow.

    Two Americas, coming closer each day to proving the truth to Lincoln’s maxim that a house divided against itself cannot stand.


    Do you see these truths in 21 St. Century America?

    Won’t you please go to the polls to correct these calamitous mistakes ?!
