2019"RES IPSA LOQUITUR".
Friday, the Trump administration released their annual report to
Congress on White House Office Personnel. It includes the name, status,
salary and position title of all 377 White House employees.
The report also said that Trump decided not to take a dime of his salary; instead he donated it to an amazing cause.
report also showed that President Trump is far better at saving money.
The total annual White House salaries under Trump are $35.8 million vs.
$60.9 million under Obama, a savings of $25.1 million.
Here are some other key findings:
There are 140 fewer employees on White House staff under Trump than under Obama at this point in their respective presidencies.
fewer staffers are dedicated to The First Lady of the United States
(FLOTUS). Currently, there are only five staffers dedicated to Melania
Trump vs. forty-four staffers who served Michelle Obama (FY2009).
However, it's what the report said Trump did with this salary that has everyone talking.
Instead of taking his salary, Trump donated all $400,000 to the
Department of the Interior where it will be used for construction and repair needs at military cemeteries! AMAZING!
It's so great to have a President who loves our brave military men and women so much!
Oh, and where's the media coverage of this?
That's right, they don't cover anything decent that the President does..
BUT WE WILL!

IS WHAT SUSAN TAMULEVICH, THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS, former President Ben
Martin, and I as President between 2008 and 2016 accomplished: the
ownership and preservation of our three magnificent lighthouses - under

to diagnose and treat people who are ill, who wish to be treated or who are dangers to society, without interference.
is no longer the case. Interference comes from all sides, most commonly
but not only from inability or business unwillingness to pay. The issue
of vaccination comes to mind. But the most egregious example relates to
mental health. Always treated as an outlier by both patients and
physicians, mental illness has become since the 1960's a target of
either unwarranted "protection" or of societal isolation. The results
are seen daily all around us. And they can be as dangerous and deadly
as the plague. Another failure of American Society run amok.

A VERY MILD-MANNERED AND CIVIL DESCRIPTION OF A CIVIL WAR.
is a fascinating (and scary) read. One of the best “nutshell”
descriptions of our current political situation that I've seen.
Jack Devere Minzey, born 6 October 1928, died 8 April 2018, was the
Department Head of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as
a prolific author of numerous books, most of which were on the topic of
Education and the Government role therein. (Editor's note)This was the
last of his works:
Civil War: How do civil wars happen? By Dr. Jack Devere Minzey
or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can't settle
the question through elections because they don't even agree that
elections are how you decide who's in charge. That's the basic issue
here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but
accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop
accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.
Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and
overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it's not
the first time they've done this. The first time a Republican president
was elected this century, they said he didn't really win. The Supreme
Court gave him the election. There's a pattern here.
do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president
really mean? It means they don't accept the results of any election
that they don't win. It means they don't believe that transfers of
power in this country are determined by elections. That's a civil war.
no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch
of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats
have rejected our system of government.
isn't dissent. It's not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You
can think they're the worst thing that ever happened to the country.
But then you work harder to win the next election. When you
consistently reject the results of elections that you don't win, what
you want is a dictatorship.
Your very own dictatorship.
he only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to
Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it's
inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the
White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country
through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal judge
issues an order saying that the President of the United States can't
scratch his own back without his say so, that's the civil war.
system of government is based on the constitution, but that's not the
system that runs this country. The Democrat's system is that any part
of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the
If the Democrats are in the White House, then
the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own
amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health
insurance. He can use the IRS as his own police force and imprison
citizens who speak against him. He can provide guns and money (Fast and
Furious) (Iran nuclear deal) to other countries to support his own
agenda, and watch while one of America's Ambassador's is dragged
through the streets and murdered doing nothing to aid our citizens. His
power is unlimited. He's a dictator. But when Republicans get into the
White House, suddenly the President can't do anything. He isn't even
allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor
illegally invented. A Democrat in the White House has 'discretion' to
completely decide every aspect of immigration policy. A Republican
doesn't even have the 'discretion' to reverse him. That's how the game
is played. That's how our country is run. Sad but true, although the
left hasn't yet won that particular fight.
Democrat is in the White House, states aren't even allowed to enforce
immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states
can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasn't
allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under
Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an
independent republic and sign treaties with other countries. The
Constitution has something to say about that. Whether it's Federal or
State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around
to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that
institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This is what I
call a moving dictatorship.
Donald Trump has caused the
Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a
guild. Like medieval guilds. You can't serve in if you're not a member.
If you haven't been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you
aren't in the club. And Trump isn't in the club. He brought in a bunch
of people who aren't in the club with him.
N ow we're
seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy
on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the
tools of power to bring them down.
That's not a free country.
not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an
'insurance policy' against Trump winning the election. It's not a free
country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the
opposition. It's not a free country when the media responds to the
other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that
supported him from social media. It's not a free country when all of
the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who
wasn't supposed to win did.
Have no doubt, we're in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and a leftist Democrat professional government.

forty years of "Mutual Assured Destruction" with the Soviet Union,

China in debilitating actions - the actions of true enemies. They

The Chinese have long

depending accurately on the unwillingness of too many Americans to act
beyond their most crass self-interest.

comes President Trump who insists on dealing with the reality and the
national danger of the current decades'-long situation. And for this,
as for the several other prudent actions he has taken, he is pilloried.

burnout" is in large part an attempt by the many mercantile forces
operating in the health care industry to camouflage the frustration and
actual rage experienced by physicians and other care providers against
those ever-increasing forces determined to separate the public from
needed health care in quest of the almighty buck. I certainly also
speak for myself here.
The environment in which most physicians now
have to operate in trying to provide medical care for their patients
has become much more than adversarial; it is toxic. In fact, all
patients now must also be their own advocates or must have their own
advocates, since their doctors cannot do it all any more. And they must
be prepared to be aggressive and controversial on their own behalf. The
efforts of physicians will continue, in the same vein whenever
necessary. We will never give up despite the effects on our own
well-being, especially those of us who have avoided placing ourselves
in positions of personal compromise in this war.
NEVER GIVE UP.
THIS IS EXACTLY ON POINT.

rubric that I have used in the past, in print and on self-
produced public TV shows, to offer what should be obvious basic
concepts...but which no longer are.
The following are mainly recent articles published in The Day or in ctmirror.org - with a comment from me, of course.
I could go on - and I will, but not now.
- "CT's 'red flag' law - an early, but narrow, effort to take guns".
When tied to effective background checks especially targeting the
mentally ill with the cooperation of mental health professionals, this
could be effective as well as fair. This is not now the case.
- "Education group: repeal the religious exemption from vaccination." Public Safety must trump any real or fabricated "religious exemption.
The U.S. can slash health-care costs 75% with 2 fundamental changes -
and without 'Medicare for 'All'. These changes are 1) price tags and
negotiations; and 2) HEALTH SAVINGS ACCOUNTS! How long have I
been preaching that? Actually since at least the late1980's on this web
site and elsewhere. Look it up.
- "Doctors warn of health fallout from new immigration rule".
Too many physicians from today's younger generations (including large
components of their organizations like the ACP, AMA and Pediatrics
organizations) are socialists in white coats, while declining to treat
the indigent and the elderly in their private practices. And they also
do not adhere to a basic rule of effective medical practice: we work
With patients, not For patients. Patients have to be willing and
effective participants in their own care.
- "Trump uses sanctions as diplomatic hammer; experts question strategy". These "experts" don't even recognize the "carrot and stick" approach to human psychology - its Number 1 Rule.
- "Common sense, and Title IX, need to prevail",
as relates to the ludicrous transgender policy regarding participation
in sports. Did somebody mention "Common Sense"? And also, how about
- "Trump steadily fulfills goals on religious right wish list."
These hypocrites can't even post the question fairly, much less argue
it fairly. The tension is between the immoral and amoral narcissists
and those of us who hold to a moral compass.

The History of Beer & the Wheel
The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel.
Beer required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture.
the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early
humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just
stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.
wheel was invented to get man to the beer and vice versa. These
two were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the
catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while
they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the
Other men who were less skilled at hunting
(called 'vegetarians' which was an early human word meaning 'bad
hunter') learned to live off the Conservatives by showing up for the
nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hairdressing.
This was the beginning of the liberal movement.
Some of these
liberal men "evolved" into women. Others became known as
girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the
domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and
the concept of democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and
beer that Conservatives provided.
Over the years Conservatives came
to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth,
the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass for obvious
Modern Liberals like special flavored beer (with lime
added), but most prefer white wine spritzers or imported bottled
water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done.
Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another
interesting evolutionary side note: many liberal women have higher
testosterone levels than their men.
Most college professors, social
workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, film makers in
Hollywood, group therapists and community organizers are
liberals. Liberals meddled in our national pastime and invented
the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher
Conservatives drink real beer. They eat red meat and
still provide for their women. Conservatives are members of the
military, big game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction
workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers,
corporate executives, athletes, airline pilots, and generally anyone
who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire
other Conservatives who want to work for a living.
little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide
what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are
more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals
remained in Europe when Conservatives were coming to America.
They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of
trying to get more for nothing.
Here ends today's lesson in world
history. It should be noted that a liberal may have a momentary
urge to angrily respond to this post.

laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it

Explore Race Rock Lighthouse - Boat Trip & Tour
Explore inside one of the region's most storied lighthouses.
London, Connecticut -- For the only time in 2019, and just the 2nd time
in history, you may land by boat at Race Rock Light Station and explore
inside throughout the formidable and mysterious Race Rock Lighthouse.
New London Maritime Society is offering two trips, with a maximum of
six passengers, each. Sign up online 24/7 at

10 AM to 1:15 PM, and Sunday, August 25, from 11 AM to 2:15 PM. Guests
will have about 40 minutes to explore Race Rock. Donation is $125, or
$100 for New London Maritime Society members. Please make your
reservation at least 24 hours in advance of your trip. Everyone must
sign a waiver of liability before boarding.
the lighthouse is situated in the turbulent waters of the Race, trips
are timed to run at slack tide and also are weather-dependent.
Landing at Race Rock demands some physical dexterity.

For 139 years Race Rock's red lantern light and fog horn have guided
mariners through the roiling currents at the Race. In 2013 Race Rock
Light Station was entrusted to the New London Maritime Society by the
federal government through the National Lighthouse Preservation Act.
The architecture firm Modern Ruins currently is preparing an

Between a B-17 and a German fighter over the Tunis dock area,
Became the subject of one of the most famous photographs of WW II.
An enemy fighter attacking a 97th Bomb Group formation went out of control,
Probably with a wounded pilot, then continued its crashing descent
Into the rear of the fuselage of a Flying Fortress named "All American ",
Piloted by Lt. Kendrick R. Bragg, of the 414th Bomb Squadron.
When it struck, the fighter broke apart, but left some pieces in the B-17.

And the radios, electrical and oxygen systems were damaged.

And twisted when the plane turned and all the control cables were severed,
Except one single elevator cable still worked, and the aircraft miraculously still flew!

to the rest of the plane. The waist and tail gunners used parts
of the German fighter and their own parachute harnessesIn an attempt to
keep the tail from ripping off and the two sides of the fuselage from
splitting apart. While the crew was trying to keep the bomber
from coming apart, The pilot continued on his bomb run and released his
bombs over the target.
When the bomb bay doors were opened, The
wind turbulence was so great that it blew one of the waist gunners into
the broken tail section It took several minutes and four crew members
to pass him ropes from parachutes And haul him back into the forward
part of the plane. When they tried to do the same for the tail gunner,
tail began flapping so hard that it began to break off, The weight of
the gunner was adding some stability to the tail section, so he went
back to his position.
The turn back toward England had to be very slow to keep the tail from twisting off.
They actually covered almost 70 miles to make the turn home.

fighters attacked the All American .
the extensive damage, all of the machine gunners were able to respond
to these attacks and soon drove off the fighters. The two waist
gunners stood up with their heads sticking out through the hole in the
top of the fuselage To aim and fire their machine guns. The tail
gunner had to shoot in short bursts because the recoil was actually
causing the plane to turn.
Allied P-51 fighters intercepted the All American as it crossed over the Channel

describing that the appendage was waving like a fish tail And that the
plane would not make it and to send out boats to rescue the crew when
they bailed out. The fighters stayed with the Fortress, taking hand
signals from Lt. Bragg and relaying them to the base.
signaled that 5 parachutes and the spare had been "used" So five of the
crew could not bail out. He made the decision that if they could
not bail out safely, then he would stay with the plane to land it.
Two and a half hours after being hit, the aircraft made its final turn
To line up with the runway while it was still over 40 miles away.
It descended into an emergency landing and a normal roll-out on its landing gear
the ambulance pulled alongside, it was waved off because not a single
member of the crew had been injured No one could believe that the
aircraft could still fly in such a condition. The Fortress sat
placidly until the crew all exited through the door in the fuselage and
the tail gunner had climbed down a ladder,
at which time the entire rear section of the aircraft collapsed.
This old bird had done its job and brought the entire crew home uninjured.
THIS IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT, ALFIE...
NOT THE HARE-BRAINED RANTINGS OF THE LEFTISTS AND THEIR DEMOCRATIC FELLOW-TRAVELERS.
A strong "silent majority" of citizens will remember this in the 2020 elections.

MORE ON "RACISM".
See two articles directly on point:
1) "What Would We Do Without the Word 'Racism'"?, by Joseph Epstein (WSJ August 3-4, 2019, Opinion, pA13). A couple of quotes:
a) "The term became pervasive only after discrimination was banned and blacks made significant progress."
b) "Without the word racism Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton would be out of business, Cory Booker could not construct a sentence."
c) "Among the race-mongers in the current day no one is safe."
And make sure to read the last paragraph.
2) And now about "Diversity", supposedly the positive side of "Racism".
See: "The Downside Of Diversity",
by Anthony Kronman (WSJ ibid, Review, pC1). A cancer has invaded the
heart of "Liberal Education" in this country. It is now neither
"liberal" nor "education".
MAKE SURE THAT YOU DON'T TOLERATE THIS DELUSIONAL GARBAGE.

WHEN IS THIS CAREENING TRAIN OF GARBAGE GOING TO SMASH INTO ITS "LAST STOP"?
Everyone should take the time to read this. Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important.
2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton
Foundation. A Grand Jury had been impaneled. Governments from around
the world had donated to the “Charity”.
Yet, from 2001 to 2003
none of those “Donations” to the Clinton Foundation were declared. Now
you would think that an honest investigator would be able to figure
Look who took over this investigation in 2005, none
other than James Comey. Coincidence? Guess who was transferred into the
Internal Revenue Service to run the Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?
None other than, Lois Lerner. Isn’t that interesting?
is all just a series of strange coincidences, right? Guess who ran the
Tax Division inside the Department of Justice from 2001 to 2005? None
other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod
Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of
Investigation during this time frame? Another coincidence (just an
anomaly in statistics and chances), but it was Robert Mueller.
do all four casting characters have in common? They all were briefed
and/or were front-line investigators into the Clinton Foundation
Investigation. Another coincidence, right?
Fast forward to 2009.
James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed
Martin. Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, official
government business, on her own personal email server. The Uranium One
“issue” comes to the attention of Hillary. Like all good public
servants do, supposedly looking out for America’s best interest, she
decides to support the decision and approve the sale of 20% of US
Uranium to no other than, the Russians. Now, you would think that this
is a fairly straight up deal, except it wasn’t. America got absolutely
nothing out of it.
However, prior to the sales approval, none other than Bill Clinton goes to Moscow, gets paid $500,000 for
one hour speech; then meets with Vladimir Putin at his home for a few
hours. Ok, no big deal right? Well, not so fast, the FBI had a mole
inside the money laundering and bribery scheme.
was the FBI Director during this time frame. He even delivered a
Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009. Who was handling that case within the
Justice Department out of the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland? None
other than, Rod Rosenstein.
And what happened to the
informant? The Department of Justice placed a gag order on him and
threatened to lock him up if he spoke out about it.
How does 20%
of the most strategic asset of the United States of America end up in
Russian hands when the FBI has an informant, a mole providing inside
information to the FBI on the criminal enterprise?
after; the sale was approved. $145 million dollars in “donations” made
their way into the Clinton Foundation from entities directly connected
to the Uranium One deal. Guess who was still at the Internal Revenue
Service working the Charitable Division? None other than, Lois Lerner.
that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see here,
right? Let’s fast forward to 2015. Due to a series of tragic events in
Benghazi and after the 9 “investigations” the House, Senate and at
State Department, Trey Gowdy who was running the 10th investigation as
Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi discovers that Hillary ran
the State Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal
email server. He also discovered that none of
those emails had been
turned over when she departed her “Public Service” as Secretary of
State which was required by law. He also discovered that there was Top
Secret information contained within her personally archived email.
you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated, the
delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were spewed
from the necks of the Kerry State Department, we shall leave
it with this, they did everything humanly possible to cover for
Now this is amazing, guess who became FBI Director
in 2013? None other than James Comey, who secured 17 no bid contracts
for his employer
(Lockheed Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a $6 million dollar thank you present
he departed his employer? Amazing how all those no-bids just went right
through at the State Department. Now he is the FBI Director in charge
of the “Clinton Email Investigation” after of course his FBI
Investigates the Lois Lerner “Matter” at the Internal Revenue Service
and he exonerates her. Nope, couldn’t find any crimes there.
April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary Rodham
Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like
candy.They didn’t even convene a Grand Jury! Like a lightning bolt of
statistical impossibility, like a miracle from God himself, like the
true “Gangsta” Comey is, James steps out into the cameras of an
awaiting press conference on July 5th of 2016, and exonerates Hillary
from any wrongdoing.
Do you see the pattern?
It goes on
and on, Rosenstein becomes Assistant Attorney General, Comey gets fired
based upon a letter by Rosenstein, Comey leaks government information
to the press, Mueller is assigned to the Russian Investigation sham by
Rosenstein to provide cover for decades of malfeasance within the FBI
and DOJ and the story continues.
FISA abuse, political espionage pick a crime, any crime, chances are this group and a few others did it:
All the same players.
All compromised and conflicted.
All working fervently to NOT go to jail themselves.
All connected in one way or another to the Clinton's.
They are like battery acid; they corrode and corrupt everything they touch. How many lives have these two destroyed?
of this writing, the Clinton Foundation, in its 20+ years of operation
of being the largest International Charity Fraud in the history of
mankind, has never been audited by the Internal Revenue Service. Let us
not forget that Comey's brother works for DLA Piper, the law firm that
does the Clinton Foundation's taxes.
The person that is the
common denominator to all the crimes above and still doing her evil
escape legal maneuvers at the top of the 3 Letter USA Agencies? Yes,
that would be Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Let’s learn a little about
Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background. Lisa H. Barsoomian, an Attorney
that graduated from Georgetown Law, is a protégé of James Comey and
Robert Mueller. Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence,
represented Bill Clinton in 1998.
Lawrence also represented;
Robert Mueller three times,
James Comey five times,
Barack Obama 45 times,
Kathleen Sebelius 56 times,
Bill Clinton 40 times,
and Hillary Clinton 17 times.
Between 1998 and 2017, Barsoomian herself represented the FBI at least five times.
may be saying to yourself, who cares about the work history of this
Barsoomian woman? Apparently, someone does, because someone out there
cares so much that they’ve “purged” all Barsoomian court documents for
her Clinton representation in Hamburg vs. Clinton in 1998 and its
appeal in 1999 from the DC District and Appeals Court
dockets. Someone out there cares so much that even the internet has been “purged” of all information pertaining to Barsoomian.
this indicates that the individual is a protected CIA operative.
Additionally, Lisa Barsoomian has specialized in opposing Freedom of
Information Act requests on behalf of the intelligence community.
Although, Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of cases
representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address is
LisaBarsoomian@NIH.gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes of
Health. This is a tactic routinely used by the CIA to protect an
operative by using another government organization to shield their
activities. It’s a cover, so big deal right? What does one more
attorney with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?
deals with Trump and his recent tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum
imports, the border wall, DACA, everything coming out of California,
the Uni-party unrelenting opposition to President Trump, the Clapper
leaks, the Comey leaks, Attorney General Jeff Sessions recusal and
subsequent 14 month nap with occasional forays into the marijuana
legalization mix and last but not least Mueller’s never-ending
investigation into collusion between the
Trump team and the Russians.
Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention? Because she is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s wife.
