RAPID 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.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY; THE PARTY OF DESTRUCTIVE SELF-DESTRUCTION.

This nation has always benefited from a two-party political system, and has suffered with aberrant results when third party candidates were part of the choices. Now the nearly daily - reconstructed Democratic Party threatens to guarantee that situation for the 2020 election, the most consequential election in decades.
Read the following recent articles, all of them directly on point, to understand what's at stake. They were all published in the WSJ. And they don't even address the other problem: the identity crisis within the Republican Party, despite having a party Leader - President Trump- who actually Leads.

1) "The Democrats' Identity Meltdown" (Editorial, Feb. 11, 2019).
2) "Who's Afraid Of Socialism" (Editorial, Feb. 7, 2019).
3) "Democrats Love Diversity, Except When It Comes To Thought" (Opinion,  Feb. 6, 2019).
4) "Title IX's Witness Intimidation" (ibid).
5) "Democrats And Anti-Semitism" (Opinion, Feb. 13, 2019).
6) The many articles on the Virginia debacle.

Even life-long Democrats are beginning to sustain genetic modifications under this radioactive barrage.
But "You can't beat something with nothing".
Republicans and their Party must unite behind a set of principles that support and benefit the vast majority of Americans,"Middle-Americans", who have always been the backbone of this nation - but who have long been poorly represented - until the cry for help expressed in the 2016 election. That cry will be even more strident - and consequential - in 2020.

AS DISCUSSED IN EARLIER COMMENTARIES IN THIS SECTION,
the WASHINGTON "SWAMP" has come to include elements of a new, "Fourth Branch of Federal Government";
the Bureaucracy, aka the Administrative Services legally under the Executive Branch.
There is abundant evidence, actively suppressed so far, of the malfeasance of parts of the FBI, both in recent years and in past decades under J.Edgar Hoover.
Another example is described by Dan Backer in his report: "Why Is FEC Stalling On Clinton Scandal?" (in The Day Feb. 17, 2019, Opinion, pB4).
The public advocacy organization Judicial Watch provides more examples, both past and currently being litigated.
This is a direct and flagrant attack on our constitutional form of government, supported and protected by elements of the same Swamp - your perpetually re-elected Federal officials.

SO, WHERE ARE WE...AND WHERE ARE WE GOING?
Lee Elci, in his excellent Feb.13, 2019 article in The Day, describes where we are through President Trump's State of the Union message...and through the "hostility and partisan sarcasm" and the mocking expressions with which the  President was met by the Leftists and their Democratic fellow-travelers.
"The most disrespectful and regrettable performance came from the Women in White"..."Shame on them".
And now we have a pending guaranteed succession of court actions, very likely culminating in the USSC. It's just as well. Several Presidents have challenged the Constitutional Separation of Powers. Time to clarify.
Meanwhile, this country is seriously divided. Deep social division, as Abraham Lincoln is quoted as having said, can lead to either despotism or anarchy.
We have the coming 2020 elections to help us all clarify. But for that we must have clear and distinct choices. The current divided Republican Party will have to provide those distinct choices, as articulated in a fine article by Peggy Noonan ("Republicans Need To Save Capitalism", WSJ Feb. 16-17, 2019, Opinion, pA15).
The Chinese blessing (or curse) is apt here: "MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES".

SO MUCH IDIOCY...SO LITTLE TIME.
Herewith, another Pot Pourri that Stinks.

1) Narcotics, non-medical Marijuana, Vaping. Here comes a new generation of Victims - and of "dissembling miscreants" pushers, now including State governments. Meanwhile, tens of millions of legitimate sufferers of serious pain are having their access to opioids reduced or blocked by realistically intimidated physicians. CRAZY.
2) "10 Dreaded Diseases Back from The Brink": Syphilis, Measles, Plague, Scarlet Fever, Mumps, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Whooping Cough, Tuberculosis, Gout. What IDIOCY. What IRRESPONSIBILITY. Another indictment against the current generations and our presumed "leaders" for our future!
(See the recent article in http://www.medlinx.com).
3) The "Speech Police" haven't come for you and me - yet; but it may be just a matter of time. One of the latest victims to be demoted is Bob Costas, who had the temerity to draw attention to the thousands of professional football players who have sustained chronic brain and other neurologic damage. Just a matter of time, unless we all do something...beginning with the 2020 elections.
4) Public Education Politics, the Teachers' Unions and their enabling Democratic Party. The malign opposition to school choice, to vouchers, to actual accountability for students and teachers alike beats on...while your children lose the competition of life at the starting gate. (See "Florida's Voucher Vindication", Editorial, WSJ, Feb. 9,10, 2019). And so many of you are doing NOTHING. SHAME.
5) Here's a "no-brainer" regarding veterans' access to health care - and why it is being opposed by "the usual suspects" - the Democrats. (See "Veterans Are Freer To Choose", Editorial, WSJ, Feb. 6, 2019.)
6) From the Vatican to our neighborhoods, the leaders of  the Catholic Church do not seem to be getting the message: that another large group of Catholic Faithful, the Laity, the Body of the Church, are about to leave the Church, at least in form and in participation. Nothing loud or obvious, but definite and hurtful to all. Where is representation by the Laity at the coming 4 day conference in Rome? Where is a meaningful understanding by the Vatican for the position and initiatives of many American Bishops - instead of a gag order and a trip to the shed...aka a mandatory meeting of a Vatican official with "all" American Bishops, which many did not attend? "IS ANYBODY THERE? DOES ANYBODY CARE?"

Even back to the '30's.

GS

Lost Words from our childhood:
 
Mergatroyd!... 
 
Do you remember that word? Would you believe the email spell checker did not recognize the word Mergatroyd? 
 
Heavens to Mergatroyd! 
 
The other day a not so elderly (I say 75) lady said something to her son about driving a Jalopy and he looked at her quizzically and said "What the heck is a Jalopy?" 
 
He never heard of the word jalopy!! She knew she was old..... but not that old. Well, I hope you are Hunky Dory after you read this and chuckle. 
 
About a month ago, I illuminated some old expressions that have become obsolete because of the inexorable march of technology. 
 
These phrases included "Don't touch that dial," "Carbon copy," "You sound like a broken record" and "Hung out to dry." 
 
Back in the olden days we had a lot of 'moxie.' We'd put on our best 'bib and tucker' to' straighten up and fly right'. 
 
Heavens to Betsy! Gee whillikers! Jumping Jehoshaphat! Holy moley! 
 
We were 'in like Flynn' and 'living the life of Riley'', and even a regular guy couldn't accuse us of being a knucklehead, a nincompoop or a pill. Not for all the tea in China! 
 
Back in the olden days, life used to be swell, but when's the last time anything was swell?  Swell has gone the way of beehives, pageboys and the D.A.; of spats, knickers, fedoras, poodle skirts, saddle shoes and pedal pushers...AND DON'T FORGET.... Saddle Stitched Pants.
 
Oh, my aching back! Kilroy was here, but he isn't anymore. 
 
We wake up from what surely has been just a short nap, and before we can say, Well, I'll be 'a monkey's uncle!' Or,  This is a 'fine kettle of fish'! We discover that the words we grew up with, the words that seemed omnipresent, as oxygen, have vanished with scarcely a notice from our tongues and our pens and our keyboards.
 
Poof, go the words of our youth, the words we've left behind. We blink, and they're gone. 
Where have all those great phrases gone? Let's all go to the beach Saturday"... 
 
Long gone: Pshaw, The milkman did it. Hey! It's your nickel. Don't forget to pull the chain. Knee high to a grasshopper.
 
Well, Fiddlesticks! Going like sixty. I'll see you in the funny papers. Don't take any wooden nickels. Wake up and smell the roses. 
 
It turns out there are more of these lost words and expressions than Carter has liver pills. This can be disturbing stuff! ("Carter's Little Liver Pills" are gone too!)
 
We of a certain age have been blessed to live in changeable times. For a child each new word is like a shiny toy, a toy that has no age. We at the other end of the chronological arc have the advantage of remembering there are words that once did not exist and there were words that once strutted their hour upon the earthly stage and now are heard no more, except in our collective memory. It's one of the greatest advantages of aging. 
 
Leaves us to wonder where Superman will find a phone booth... 
 
See ya later, alligator!    "Okey Dokey”   or “After While Crocodile”.
 
WE ARE THE CHILDREN OF THE FABULOUS 50'S...NO ONE WILL EVER HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY AGAIN...WE WERE GIVEN ONE OF OUR MOST PRECIOUS GIFTS.

Of course, some readers will consider the interesting "scents" as smells. But inhale deeply nevertheless.

1) Despotic Venezuela is treating its Opposition leader with the usual efforts of a "Ministry of Propaganda", combining Fake News and Blocked News. Sound familiar?
2) "Is Health Care A Right?" (ctmirror.org). It is only a Right if combined with a Responsibility: the responsibility to attend to one's own Health. Right now, over 50% of all health care costs are directly related to life style issues. One of the most recently reported of these: "Link Between Obesity And Rising Cancers In Young Adults Suggests Health Crisis".
3) "Hoist on their own petard". The Leftists and their Democratic fellow-travelers are being treated in Virginia to the same trial and conviction by accusation that they are increasingly applying to all perceived enemies. Forget "innocent until proven guilty". Forget Due Process.
4) "Which Trump Will Emerge After The State Of The Union Address?" (Editorial, The Day). A defensive, knee-jerk reaction to a very good statement by the President, in substance, in delivery and in reception. Nothing "Fair and Balanced" there.
5) "Ned 'Mr. Rogers' Lamont Will Fleece Your Neighborhood", by Lee Elci, in The Day recently.
RIGHT (WRITE) ON.

"Lord, Thou knowest I am growing older. Keep me

Release me from the craving to straighten out

Keep me from the recital of endless detail. Give

Seal my lips when I am inclined to tell of my aches

my love to speak of them grows sweeter as time
goes by.
Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally I
may be wrong. Make me thoughtful but not nosey;
helpful but not bossy. With my vast store of
wisdom and experience it does seem a pity not to
use it all. But Thou knowest, Lord, that I want a few
friends at the end."

THAT WE NEVER HEARD OF. WHY?

The Proposed EL CHAPO Act
By Ben Marquis
 
Martial arts expert Chuck Norris has never been known to back away from a fight.  But he just endorsed a solution to end the stalemate between the Trump White House and congressional Democrats over funding for a border wall.
 
With the partial shutdown of the federal government having entered its third week, some members of Congress have grown increasingly anxious to find a compromise solution to end the current stalemate over a funding request for border security and border wall construction.
 
Negotiations have stalled as neither side has shown any indication they will waver, with President Donald Trump continuing to demand roughly $5.7 billion to fulfill his primary campaign promise while Democrats insist they will refuse to provide even a single dime of taxpayer money to construct any sort of physical border barrier.
 
However, there may be an acceptable solution already on the table that would provide funding for border wall construction without the use of taxpayer money — while also fulfilling Trump’s promise that “Mexico will pay for the wall.”  And that potential solution just received a huge boost of support from actor, author, and martial arts expert Chuck Norris, in a commentary piece for WND.
 
Norris drew attention to a piece of legislation that was just re-introduced into the Senate by Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz that would use the seized funds of convicted drug cartel overlords for border security and border wall construction.
 
Cruz cleverly named his bill the “Ensuring Lawful Collection of Hidden Assets to Provide Order Act — or EL CHAPO Act — named for the arrested kingpin of the Mexico-based Sinaloa drug cartel, Joaquin Archivaldo “El Chapo” Guzman, from whom roughly $14 billion has been seized and would be forfeited if El Chapo is convicted.
 
In a recent media release, Cruz noted that Congress had a mandate to secure the border and build a wall, and said, “Ensuring the safety and security of Texans is one of my top priorities.  Indeed, I have long called for building a wall as a necessary step in defending our border.
 
“Fourteen billion dollars will go a long way to secure our southern border and hinder the illegal flow of drugs, weapons, and individuals.
 
“By leveraging any criminally forfeited assets of El Chapo and other murderous drug lords, we can offset the cost of securing our border and make meaningful progress toward delivering on the promises made to the American people,” Cruz added.
 
In his column supporting Cruz’s idea, Norris wrote:
 
“If you didn’t know, El Chapo is almost entirely responsible for the majority of drugs that come up through the U.S. southern border.  As the co-founder and head of the Sinaloa Cartel, he has been the #1 supplier of marijuana, cocaine, heroin and methamphetamines into the U.S.  If you or your loved ones have ever tried or been addicted to illegal drugs, odds are they originated from the Sinaloa Cartel.”
 
Norris proceeded to cite several examples of how widely the Sinaloa’s drug trafficking network operated inside the U.S., as well as the vast accumulation of wealth the cartel has received from illicit drug money, and how the estimated $14 billion that would be forfeited upon El Chapo’s conviction would be more than enough to cover the construction of a border wall where necessary.
 
“Is Sen. Cruz’s EL CHAPO Act not a brilliant idea to fund the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico?  And guess what?  A Mexican pays for it after all — one evil individual who has repeatedly raped America’s communities and the souls of millions through narcotics and other criminal acts for the past three decades,” wrote Norris.
 
“Think of the impact passing the EL CHAPO Act could have,” he continued. “First, El Chapo’s drug monies could probably fund the completion of the entire U.S. southern border wall without a single dime more from the federal government or American taxpayers.
 
“Second, simultaneously the majority of El Chapo’s own drug trafficking cartel into our country would be greatly diminished using his own money.”
 
“Third, president Trump could fulfill his primary campaign promise.
 
“Fourth, the Democrats would be able to open the government the same day the EL CHAPO Act passed,” Norris suggested.
 
He added, “Let it be clear: Passing that single bill could be the compromise they all are looking for, and it is the best win-win-win-win solution the Congress and president could ever enact!”
 
Norris is absolutely right in that this could very well be the best solution to end the current impasse between congressional Democrats and the Trump White House, as it allows both sides of the debate to emerge “victorious” without having backed down from the face-off.
 
Trump would obviously be the winner as he would achieve his oft-promised border wall — and at the expense of Mexican criminals to boot — while Democrats could claim victory in that they held fast on preventing American taxpayer money from going toward Trump’s wall.
 
Meanwhile, the American citizens would “win” by virtue of a much more secure border with fewer illegal immigrants and drug smugglers successfully crossing, protecting lower income jobs for Americans, and making the entire nation safer and more prosperous.
 
Ted Cruz reintroduced the bill on January 3, 2019. I'm sure that the main stream media will never mention it, and I'm sure that it terrifies the Democrats because it would paint them into an inescapable corner trying to explain why they would not support it.

If you have any doubt about the veracity of this bill all you have to do is google El Chapo Act. Why hasn't this gotten any attention or traction in the swamp?   Unbelievable!

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Jeremiah

The word of the LORD came to me, saying:
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I dedicated you,
a prophet to the nations I appointed you.

But do you gird your loins;
stand up and tell them
all that I command you.
Be not crushed on their account,
as though I would leave you crushed before them;
for it is I this day
who have made you a fortified city,
a pillar of iron, a wall of brass,
against the whole land:
against Judah's kings and princes,
against its priests and people.
They will fight against you but not prevail over you,
for I am with you to deliver you, says the LORD.


A reading from the first Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians

Brothers and sisters:
Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts.
But I shall show you a still more excellent way.

If I speak in human and angelic tongues,
but do not have love,
I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal.
And if I have the gift of prophecy,
and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge;
if I have all faith so as to move mountains,
but do not have love, I am nothing.
If I give away everything I own,
and if I hand my body over so that I may boast,
but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind.
It is not jealous, it is not pompous,
It is not inflated, it is not rude,
it does not seek its own interests,
it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury,
it does not rejoice over wrongdoing
but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never fails.
If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing;
if tongues, they will cease;
if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing.
For we know partially and we prophesy partially,
but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.
When I was a child, I used to talk as a child,
think as a child, reason as a child;
when I became a man, I put aside childish things.
At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror,
but then face to face.
At present I know partially;
then I shall know fully, as I am fully known.
So faith, hope, love remain, these three;
but the greatest of these is love.

SEE THE ARTICLE IN THE NYTIMES, FEB. 3, 2019 (SR, p11), AND INCLUDING THE PHOTO:
"The Church And The Abortion Capital", by Ross Douthat.

If this man can continue to be the Catholic Cardinal of the world's most important city, then the author is correct in his description of "the ransacked, decaying basilica that is American Catholicism...."

NOT SO SMART...

Here's how your smartphone is hurting your health

AMERICA NEEDS TO BE "GREAT AGAIN". IT'S NOT!
Our country is now run by "Idiots" who entirely fulfill the related definition by Albert Einstein.
Read the attached article about the demise of our INTERNET security, affecting our business security, our electrical grid, our communications system, our system of elections and our national defense.
Meanwhile, our "Intelligence Leaders" are embracing and fighting the last wars, incapable of or unwilling to even explore more effective means of dealing with our adversaries and our enemies, as President Trump is attempting. This also is Idiocy - or crass self-interest.
The Internet, the World Wide Web and their progeny have become obsolete and dangerous. A totally new system of communications must be devised to replace these systems which were invented specifically to be "open source" and which cannot be rendered secure. Are our "Intelligence Leaders" working on that??
And are the Democratic and Rino cretins in Washington doing anything other than flailing about trying to bring this duly elected President down?
All Americans will pay a heavy price for all of this.

OF COURSE THIS NEWSLETTER SOURCE IS BIASED IN ONE DIRECTION. BUT THE FACTS ARE NOT.
Bullying and intimidation have become S.O.P. with the Leftists. That makes us all vulnerable.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT.

Two Tough Questions

Question 1:
If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who
were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had
syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

Read the next question before looking at the response for this one

Question 2:

It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
Here are the facts about the three candidates. Who would you vote for?

Candidate A
Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologist
He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B
He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps  until noon, used opium in
college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C
He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an
occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be our choice?

Decide first... no peeking, then scroll down for the response.












Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question:
If you said YES, you just killed Beethoven.

Pretty interesting isn't it? Makes a person think before judging someone.
Wait till you see the end of this note! Keep reading..

Never be afraid to try something new.

Remember:

Amateurs...built the ark.
Professionals...built the Titanic

And Finally, can you imagine working for a company that has a little more
than 500 employees and has the following statistics:

* 29 have been accused of spousal abuse
* 7 have been arrested for fraud
* 19 have been accused of writing bad checks
* 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
* 3 have done time for assault
* 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
* 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
* 8 have been arrested for shoplifting
* 21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
* 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year...

Can you guess which organization this is?

Give up yet?

It's the 535 members of the United States Congress.

The same group that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to
keep the rest of us in line.

Heaven has a wall, a gate and a strict immigration policy. Hell has
open borders.

Let that sink in.
