This is a new section. It will
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
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
campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission will
be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick",
by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active.
That's all I promise.
THURSDAY through SUNDAY, April 21 through 24,
I knew for some time that there was a problem...but not a disaster of
this magnitude. However, it all makes sense in a human
society that long ago unshackled itself from morals, from ethics, from
fair play, and from the pursuit of knowledge itself. Stupid, craven,
selfish and self - centered are what we have left. Not only
that: these are the "attributes" that are now embraced by a substantial
proportion of the last three generations.
WHAT NOT TO DO: REMAIN QUIET.
What to do: call out this excrement for what it is. Try not to be "ad
homonem" or defamatory. But get your point across, for
education and for self-respect. That way, even if
Society does not survive, we will survive.
"Race-ist? Sex-ist? ASS - IST.

This article articulates
the problem well. It also has obvious implications for climate science,

should not be a surprise given the dominance of government in the
funding of science and scientific charities and universities, not to
mention the downside of tenure. I'm not sure I agree with the solutions

Cruz refused to answer eight direct questions Thursday about whether or
not he'd support personhood bills - legislation that would give
Constitutional rights to fertilized eggs - despite pledging to support
it last year...Chuck Todd, to his credit, made a valiant effort to get
a straight answer out of the Texas senator. Cruz, an experienced
lawyer, wouldn't budge...And we know why. Last summer, en
to picking up an endorsement from a far-right group, Ted Cruz signed a
pledge promising rto "support a personbhood amendment to the U .S.

This one is a little different....
Two Different Morals:
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his
house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and
plays the summer away.
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.
MORAL OF THE OLD STORY:
Be responsible for yourself!
The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long,
building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and
plays the summer away.

to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he
is cold and starving..
CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, and ABC show up
to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the
ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food.
America is stunned by the sharp contrast.
How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor
grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?
Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody
cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green...'
the Anthill stages a demonstration in front of the ant's house where
the news stations film the SEIU group singing, We shall overcome.

for the grasshopper's sake, while he damns the ants.
Obama condemns the ant and blames President Bush 43, President Bush 41,
President Reagan, Christopher Columbus, and the
Pope for the grasshopper's plight..

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and
his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the

happens to be the ant's old house, crumbles around them because the

MORAL OF THE STORY:
Be careful how you vote in 2016.
I've sent this to you because I know you're an ant not a grasshopper!
Make sure that you pass this on to other ants.
Don't bother sending it on to any grasshoppers because they wouldn't
understand it, anyway.

This is factually (and historically) correct - and verifiable:

Europe in the Battle of Lepanto.

inconvenience to themselves. Pause a moment and reflect back.

No Obama, I really don't see a pattern here to justify profiling, do
you? So, to ensure we Americans never offend anyone, particularly
fanatics intent on killing us, airport security screeners will no
be allowed to profile certain people.
So, ask yourself "Just how stupid are we???"
Absolutely No Profiling! They must conduct random searches of
80-year-old women, little kids, airline pilots with proper
identification, secret agents who are members of the Obama's security

What Trump has wrought Posted
By Patrick J. Buchanan On 04/04/2016
As Wisconsinites head for the polls, our
Beltway elites are almost giddy. For they foresee a Badger State
Donald Trump, breaking his momentum toward the Republican nomination.
Should The Donald fall short of the delegates
needed to win on the first ballot, 1,237, there is growing certitude
will be stopped. First by Ted Cruz; then, perhaps, by someone
acceptable to the
establishment, which always likes to have two of its own in the race.
But this city of self-delusion should realize
there is no going back for America. For, whatever his stumbles of the
weeks, Trump has helped to unleash the mightiest force of the 21st
Transnationalism and globalism are moribund.
First among the issues on which Trump has
triumphed – “We will build the wall – and Mexico will pay for it!” – is
Republican candidates who failed to parrot
Trump on illegal immigration were among the first casualties for that
America is, and that is where the West is. Consider Europe. Four months ago, Angela
Merkel was Time’s Person of the Year for throwing open the gates to the
“huddled masses” of the Middle and Near East. Merkel’s Germany is now leading the EU in
amassing a huge bribe to the Turks to please take them back, and keep
from the Greek islands that are now Islam’s Ellis Island into Europe.
Africa’s population will double to 2.5
billion by 2050. With 60 percent of Africans now under 25 years of age,
millions will find their way to the Med to cross to the Old Continent
Europeans are aging, shrinking and dying. Look for gunboats in the Med.
If immigration is the first issue where Trump
connected with the people, the second is trade.
Republicans are at last learning that trade
deficits do matter, that free trade is not free. The cost comes in dead
factories, lost jobs, dying towns and the rising rage of an abandoned
America whose country this is and whose wages have stagnated for
Economists who swoon over figures on

economic independence Hamilton taught was indispensable to our
independence. We have forgotten what made us great.
China, Japan, Germany – the second, third and
fourth largest economies on earth – all owe their prosperity to trade
run for decades at the expense of the Americans.
A third casualty of Trumpism is the post-Cold
War foreign policy consensus among liberal interventionists and
neoconservatives. Trump subjects U.S. commitments to a
cost-benefit analysis, as seen from the standpoint of cold national
What do we get from continuing to carry the
largest load of the defense of a rich Europe, against a Russia with
of Europe’s population?
How does Vladimir Putin, leader of a nation
that in the last century lost its European and world empires and a
third of its
landmass, threaten us?
Why must we take the lead in confronting and
containing Putin in Ukraine, Crimea and Georgia? No vital U.S. interest
imperiled there, and Russia’s ties there are older and deeper than ours
Why is it the responsibility of the U.S.
Pacific Fleet to defend the claims of Hanoi, Manila, Kuala Lumpur and
to rocks, reefs and islets in the South China Sea – against the claims
American hawks talk of facing down Beijing in
the South and East China Seas while U.S. companies import so much in
Chinese-made goods they are fully subsidizing Beijing’s military budget.
Does this make sense?
Patriotism, preserving and protecting the
unique character of our nation and people, economic nationalism,
staying out of other nation’s wars – these are as much the propellants
Trumpism as is the decline of the American working and middle class.
Trump’s presence in the race has produced the
largest turnout ever in the primaries of either party. He has won the
most delegates, most states, Wisconsin aside, he will likely come to
in that position.
If, through rules changes, subterfuge and
faithless delegates, party elites swindle him out of the nomination, do
think that the millions who came out to vote for Trump will go home and
lost it fair and square?
Do they think they can then go back to open
borders, amnesty, a path to citizenship, the Trans-Pacific Partnership
Whatever happens to Trump, the country has
spoken. And if the establishment refuses to heed its voice, and returns
policies the people have repudiated, it should take heed of John F.

2) "COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SHOCKER!", by Frank Bruno, March 30, pA21.

and to avoid, as much as possible, the inevitable "spin" that used to

d) question, don't just accept;
and realize, finally, that all of those gizmos and "social media"
connections, rather than keeping you "connected", are keeping you
isolated and incapable of learning human interaction - the most
important learning of all.

This, despite the state of "current events" and especially the
distorted way in which those events are constantly reported.
On being asked a "gotcha" question in a "gotcha" way by Chris Mathews,
Donald Trump opined that - if a woman had an ILLEGAL abortion, she
should be punished "IN SOME WAY". At that moment, the world
evidently stopped rotating. In fact, the only way that
could be rendered ILLEGAL would be if the fertilized ovum were accorded
its rightful position in PERSONHOOD. At that point, ILLEGAL abortion
would be legally the intentional killing of a human
being...Murder. And would that not warrant "punishment...in
2) On being asked about the use of nuclear
weapons, Trump said that he would under some circumstances use TACTICAL
nuclear weapons. And the world again stopped rotating. In
when I was in the Army Medical Corps in Frankfurt, Germany, supporting
the Third Armored Division against the Russians' possible attack
through the Fulda Gap ninety miles away with 20 times our fire power,
it was a "given" that we would use TACTICAL nuclear weapons then.
