RESPONSE...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section.
It will offer
fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by
day, in this rapid-fire world of ours. Of course, as in military
campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to
be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction. Charge
that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental
or military campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission
will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real
politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to
be pro-active. That's all I promise.
ON NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL NEGOTIATIONS...AND POLITICAL STUPIDITY AND TREACHERY.
the determined efforts of our President regarding North Korea, China,
Russia, and our allies and "allies". And remember how the Democrats
subverted the North Korean effort. And see: "Trump invokes new demand to get U.S. allies to pay more",
in the Washington Post, and The Day, March 10, 2019. It's the Art and
Science of Negotiation, you Dummies. It includes relative power, the
willingness to wield that power, patience, the ability to tolerate
Silence, the willingness to Walk, and NEVER TO NEGOTIATE WITH YOURSELF.
"Can You Hear Me Now?"
The Democratic "grandparents" will not go along. They learned in school, and in the "school of hard knocks". They fought for their country, in several wars and in the Cold War. They love their country; they don't despise it. They are not Stupid, Immature at any age, self-centered in the extreme. They will not vote for these disasters...if they are offered a Choice.
And therein lies the rub. They will vote against them IF THE REST OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND A RESTORED REPUBLICAN PARTY OFFER THEM THAT CHOICE. If not, there will be "voting" in the streets after the 2020 election.
ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS (EHR): What you don't know can be dangerous to your health.
See the article: "What Your Doctor Isn't Allowed To Tell You", by John Levinson, M.D. (in WSJ March 5, 2019, Opinion, pA17). Isn't that interesting? About
10 years ago, well aware of the assets and liabilities of the system,
and being coerced into adding EHR's to my clinical practice or being
fined by Medicare between 2-4% of my receivables, I opted to take the
penalty. It was one of my better decisions. Just ask your PCP or your
specialist - if you can get his or her nose out of the computer screen
for a moment. And this, without even discussing the personal privacy issue. "Caveat Emptor".
AND MORE: GETTING SICK IS DANGEROUS TO YOUR OVERALL PERSONAL HEALTH. It's often a choice. At least 50% of all illness is LIFE STYLE RELATED!
ABOUT THE RELIGION...AND THE NATION...OF ISLAM.
The Religion of Islam and its peaceful followers are Welcome in this
country. The Nation of Islam and its Sharia Law are foreign to this
country - and they are Not Welcome.
March 5 through 7,

I just finished reading a recently published book, a true story, cover
It is SUPERB, a description that I have never used before for anything.
It is like the word "AWESOME", a word that I used only once in my life:
the first time I set eyes on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
"SPEARHEAD", by Adam Makos.
It's about an American tank gunner and the crew of a Sherman tank, soon
promoted to our best Pershing tank, part of the Third Armored Division
in September, 1944. Their full Division strength was 390 tanks, trying
to prevent the Germans from retreating from France and getting back
across the Rhine.
That is the same Division that in 1960-62 was stationed in
Frankfurt-Am-Main, for which the 97th General Hospital was the medical
support, acting as a Field Hospital if necessary. That's where I served
my Army Medical Corps two year tour of duty, responsible for 1/2 of a
forty-bed general medical and cardiology ward, among other duties. At
that time, we were facing nearly 20 Soviet Armored Divisions planted 90
miles to our East beyond the Fulda Gap. General Creighton Abrams was
Commanding General when I was there. You may remember the story of my
brief encounter with him. (He was not amused).
Another connection. Clarence Smoyer, whose story this is, was born and
raised in Allentown, Pa. where your mother had her two years
of Nurse Anesthesia training. A great good fortune for me...and you,
since I met her at work at Roosevelt Hospital in New York City in 1958.
I won't describe the story further to you. Just read it, and have a
dual purpose towel beside you.
It could make a good movie. But a movie would never do it or its
subjects or its author justice.
I KID YOU NOT.
WE THERE YET?" I CERTAINLY HOPE NOT.

HERE IS A ROSETTA STONE FOR AN AGE-OLD QUESTION: "WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT,
"How To Survive Secular Totalitarianism",
by Donald DeMarco (in National Catholic Register March 3-16, 2019,
Liberalism, the step before Secular Totalitarianism, is described: "It emphasized rights
but not duties, freedom but not responsibilities, justice but not
truth, conscience without principles, sex without procreation and
compassion without real love." At that point, "Mores must be upheld
through intimidation or force, since they cannot be validated through
reason." Sound familiar?
The only problem with this exposition is the proposed solution: "The
only thing that can stand against such forces is the spiritual vitality
of the Christian community". Necessary,
But Not Sufficient!
What is absolutely necessary in a democracy is success at the ballot
box - or, if important enough (like Liberty), success in conflict.
Here, sage advice from St. Ignatius of Loyola is right on point: "Act as if everything
depends on you. Trust as if everything depends on God".
JUST SO YOU KNOW...
and how long do you think that this will go on without reply?
Hopefully until a commanding win in the 2020 election. That's my hope.
SO MAKE IT HAPPEN, STARTING NOW, with good ol' grassroots political
action. It's that important.
19, I was helping a new conservative student group recruit members at
the University of California, Berkeley, when a leftist punched me in
the face. I'm
not exaggerating. It was all caught on video. This
is me, in the blue shirt, being punched right in the face: As a
field representative for the Leadership Institute, my job is to
identify conservative students, help them organize new conservative
student groups, and train them to advocate their principles effectively. All
too often, I encounter radical leftists on college campuses who want to
silence conservatives -- by force if necessary. This isn't even the
first time I've been victimized on campus for doing my job! I
won't give in to bullying and violence. The brutal attack I suffered at
Berkeley won't deter me from organizing more conservative students. In
fact, I'm more energized than ever. The
Leadership Institute is the only national grassroots organization that
goes into the belly of the beast to organize conservative young people
-- and then comprehensively trains them on their campuses to stand up
to the left and advance our shared conservative principles. That's why
I signed up to work for the Leadership Institute. Your
urgent support for the Leadership Institute today means that
conservative students will not be silenced by leftist thugs. Your
support exposes the left's brutal attacks on conservative students and
equips these young conservatives to stand up for our shared
conservative principles. Show
leftist campus thugs that young conservatives will not be intimidated
dominant culture on campus oppresses conservative students. After
I was punched, one U.C. Berkeley employee expressed glee. He wrote on
Twitter that my attack "makes me feel emotionally so much better." Is it
any wonder that conservative students are routinely harassed, bullied,
and even physically assaulted on campus? Think about it. When
university employees cheer anti-conservative violence, students notice.
That emboldens leftist students to harass and intimidate their
conservative peers into silence. This
happened on the same campus where black-masked Antifa goons rioted when
Ann Coulter and Ben Shapiro wanted to speak. Enough is enough! But
the culture of leftist intimidation isn't a problem only at Berkeley.
I've seen it at colleges everywhere, and it's starting to pour out into
the culture at large. Last
week a leftist bully hit me. If you and I don't stop them now, next
time it could be you or your child or your grandchild. Stand
up to anti-conservative harassment and leftist violence on college
campuses >> The
solution is to organize conservatives to stand up for themselves -- to
stand up for conservative principles and against the radical leftists
who dominate America's colleges and universities. The
Leadership Institute helps conservative students organize on college
campuses all over America. That's what I was doing at Berkeley when the
leftist attacked me. Another
part of my job at the Leadership Institute is to equip these students
with the training they require to advocate successfully for your
conservative principles in a hostile environment. And
if a conservative student faces bias or discrimination or physical
attack for holding conservative views, our Leadership Institute team
helps connect them with partner organizations that provide them with
pro-bono legal representation. All
told, more than 2,100 active conservative student groups now count
themselves as part of the Leadership Institute's network. If
you want to do something to save America's colleges and universities
from the clutches of the left, there's no better way to do it than to
give to the Leadership Institute.
not going to rest until conservative college students get a fair shake.
Conservatives must not be intimidated into silence by leftist thugs. I'm
grateful for the support of principled conservatives like you. Thank
you for standing by me as I stand up to the vicious left. Thank you for
standing up for conservative students. And thank you for making the
Leadership Institute possible. Sincerely, Hayden
PLEASE WATCH THIS. IT IS NOT HYPERBOLE.
This will be your life and the life of your family if you don't WAKE UP!
Sorry, Your Holiness, that is not acceptable to the pejoratively
described "gay lobby" or to your millions of Catholic Faithful who
deserve and who are expecting much more from the Vicar of Christ on
Christ taught. He was not silent.
A GOOD QUESTION.
Let's answer it in the 2020 election.
"DID I JUST SAY
"THAT'S THE FUTURE".
The Future is Now. Check out the two stories that follow.
As I have said before, we are fortunate that we have the 2020 election
to buffer our anger at what's going on now. And by "we" I mean the vast
majority of Americans who are waiting and watching what is happening to
our country. They had better VOTE IN 2020...or they will Fight in 2021.
See the interview a few days ago by Sean Hannity of President Trump on
Fox News. Nothing better than a primary source. That's the present.
Now watch the monologue and show on March 1 by Tucker Carlson, also on
fox News. That's the future, if things don't change soon.
A TIME TO TALK, AND A TIME TO WALK.
I just read President Trump's statement on the early end to the Hanoi
This was classic,and entirely the fault of the malign and ignorant
Democrats who timed their Cohen show to occur precisely at the same
time. The North Koreans hoped that Trump would thereby be weakened and
more malleable. Not Exactly.
The President continues to be a good Leader, with a good record of
accomplishments despite the continued treachery of the Democrats...for
which they will pay dearly in 2020.
REGARDING GLOBAL WARMING, NUCLEAR ENERGY...AND THE "YEA, BUTS".
I have been commenting on this subject since the late 1960's, when the
politicians began succeeding in scare-mongering the people about
nuclear energy. Since then, large swaths of the world have embraced
nuclear power as a substantial replacement for carbon - based power
generation - to their great advantage and to the benefit of global
All of the details supporting this position are clearly presented in
the article by John Rie and Alan Emery:
NUCLEAR OPTION IS THE REAL GREEN DEAL" (in WSJ Feb. 26, 2019,
Will this overcome the continuing hypocritical and self-serving efforts
of the carbon, solar, wind and hydropower supporters to attack nuclear
power as our best option, including the sudden resurrection of Harry
Reid from his hole in Utah? No.
So who will come forward ? I don't know. But I will continue to provide
the facts for those who are awake.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "INTERNET SECURITY". THAT TERM IS AN OXYMORON!
Even worse, the Internet has become a highly effective tool for
complete INVASION OF PRIVACY.
See the front page article in WSJ Saturday, Feb. 23-24, 2019.
Even without you being a participant in FaceBook, many if not most of

February 25 and 26,
CAN I SAY ON THIS SUBJECT THAT I HAVE NOT ALREADY SAID?
NOTHING. BUT I WILL KEEP SAYING IT.
Abortion is an Abomination, mainly the direct consequence of many women
and ladies degenerating into simply soul-less genetic females, always
the most dangerous of any species.
Now it is I who must say: "Wha Hoppen?"
Only God knows. "Vengeance Is Mine. I Shall Repay, Sayeth the Lord".
