Many Hollywood elites knew but they all kept their collective mouths shut.  They were hypocritical cowards so are complicit in his long time behavior protecting this powerful Hollywood elitist Harvey Weinstein's persistent cases of sexual harassment.

George Clooney may be a good actor but my sensing of him is that he is not a good guy.  There is no way he did not know of Weinstein's antics no matter what he says. He is too high up among the Hollywood elites to not know.  Besides, he is a hard core leftist and their code of honor means they protect their own, no matter their morals or ethics.  Anyone who donates one million dollars to the infamous leftist hate group, Southern Poverty Law Center, cannot be a good guy.  He obviously does not have individual freedom for all, honesty, justice, decency, ethics, morality and tolerance for those who disagree with him in the forefront of his mind.    He is a typical Hollywood leftist know it all arrogant blow hard who happens to have acting skills.

The fa├žade that has protected the decadence of Hollywood is finally falling away.  Whether is really makes a difference or not will take time to see.  But we can hope so.  Anyway the mess is unraveling and big names are being exposed.  Probably there are others shaking in their boots.

It is obvious that I am not a fan of Hollywood.  It is one of if not the main destroyer of family values, ethics, morality and civility in our country.  Education at both secondary and higher levels is a close second.  Quote: "And this week has been exceptional, truly exceptional, as Hollywood has attained peak fail. Much like how Washington, D.C., is Hollywood for ugly people, with notable exceptions, Hollywood is Washington, D.C., for stupid people. And wow, have these Tinseltown twerps ever been stupid. Let’s start with Jimmy Kimmel, the Johnny Carson of the semi-employable cargo shorts and Corona set. A few weeks ago he was weighing in on health care policy because, apparently, he’s for health care. Exactly what policy he’s for is unclear, because when Jimmy does his thing in front of the fin-slapping trained seal caucus in the studio bleachers, he’s not actually being about policy. He’s being about posing. He’s in favor of health care, damn it, and he doesn’t care whose toes he steps on when he speaks truth to power to all those awful people who are, well, against health care or something. Because conservatives hate health care, just like they hate science."

Facts suggest she has her head on backwards. Her elitist socialist/communist leanings are still showing.. ever since she sat on that tank in North Vietnam in support of communism rather than our Constitutional Republic. Quote: "Nancy Sinatra, daughter of legendary musical artist Frank Sinatra, responded to the Las Vegas shooting by suggesting that National Rifle Association (NRA) members should face execution. The statement by Sinatra came on Tuesday and seemed to express support for taking violent action against millions of NRA members."   Do you agree she has it backwards?  Does she qualify as a hateful elite socialist leftist?   This item deals with another not so clear headed leftist/socialist lost cause.    As said many times logical thought is not a leftist strong suit.  Nor are they known for their ability to engage in civil discourse.

Porn producers do not care one bit the damage they do.  Feeding children porn is dangerous and damages their brain development.  Yet the left insists on doing what can only be called child abuse by supporting purveyors of decadence claiming their deviant behavior is a civil right.

These people are subversives.  They work against liberty, free speech, morality, decency and honesty.  They are in truth liberal propagandists misleading a large block of gullible citizens.

This woman is a disgusting human being. It seems it is impossible for her to learn that hateful behavior is destructive and has no place in legitimate civil discourse. You will recall that it was she who had a photo taken of her holding an effigy of Trump's head and later blamed Trump for her problems finding work.  What a disgusting person.   She thinks she is funny but her behavior is far, far, far from being funny.

This is an example of the filth that is Hollywood.   You can learn a lot by noticing the character of the people that people hang out with and this guy is a Clinton family friend. Kind of reminds us of Bill doesn't it?   Ironic isn't it that these fellows were good guys for the Democrats until thier sexual misdeeds became public knowledge.  My guess is that many "former" friends knew all along but expressed shock to distance themselves from them. And this is the crowd that lambasted Trump for "words" considered unsavory despite Bill Clinton's long history of actual sexual misconduct.  They are a bunch of hypocrites. 

It is truly unfortunate that this former first lady has such high regard for this sexual pervert and a women harasser to boot.  Remember when she said she felt sick to her stomach when Trump was caught making locker room talk?  She is nothing but a Democrat/leftist hack. She attacks anyone who does not agree with her politics but gives a pass no matter how heinous someone is so long as they are in her political camp.   That is the behavior of so called liberals, progressives and Democrats who claim to be the most tolerant people in the universe. 

Hollywood is a big part of the problems we face as a nation given the filthy, politically correct, violent, anti-family, racist, pro-LBGTQ, anti-Christian products they mass produce for the purpose of changing our Christian heritage and culture into one that embraces cultural Marxist principles. They have been a subversive, decadent, and radical progressive force for a very long time. They along with their socialist Democrat, mainstream media, academic and crony capitalist partners have done a very good job of destroying the very things that made our country great.

Consider the contents of this note the next time you hear these people pontificating their fake wisdom trying to tell us what we need to say, do, think and believe.  Say no thanks.  Now you know why I find the leftist "we love ourselves" fiascos known as the Oscars, Emmy's, etc. so very utterly disgusting. The preening and interviews before the events unfold border on idol worship and are truly repulsive.  That the truth of who and what they are is finally being exposed is a real breath of fresh air.

This is an example of the filth that is Hollywood.   You can learn a lot by noticing the character of the people that hang out with. He is a Clinton family friend. Typical for Bill and Hill.   Ironic isn't it that these fellows were good guys for the Democrats until their sexual misdeeds became public knowledge.  My guess is that many "former" friends knew all along but expressed shock to distance themselves from Weinstein. And this is the crowd that lambasted Trump for "words" considered unsavory despite Bill Clinton's long history of actual sexual misconduct.  They are a bunch of hypocrites. 

Here is an item that reviews the unfortunate truth about the cesspool known as Hollywood. Quote: "Hollywood is full of connoisseurs like Weinstein, men whose erotic imaginations are fueled primarily by humiliation, who glut their sensibilities with the most exquisite refinements of shame. A journalist once told me about visiting another very famous Hollywood producer—you’d know the name—who exhibited for my friend his collection of photographs of famous female actresses—you’d know their names, too—performing sexual acts for his private viewing. As with Weinstein, this man’s chief thrill was humiliation, and the more famous the target the more roundly it was savored: Even her, a big star—these people will do anything to land a role; they’re so awful, they’ll even do it for me. One of the refrains you hear today from media experts and journalists is that they’d known about Weinstein’s transgressions for a long time. The problem, they say, was that no one was able to nail down the story. Nonsense. Everyone had it, not just Waxman. Sure, reporters hadn’t been able to get any stars to go on the record. But that means the story journalists were pursuing wasn’t really about Weinstein’s sexual depredations. It means that what they wanted was a story about actresses, junior executives, or assistants who had been humiliated, maybe raped, and chose to remain quiet in exchange for money and/or a shot at fame. Of course no one was going to get that on the record—very few journalists would even want to publish a story like that. But journalists always had the actual story of how a Hollywood producer humiliated and sexually assaulted women. How? Because he victimized journalists."  And. " Bill Clinton offered get-out-of-jail-free cards to a whole army of sleazeballs, from Jeffrey Epstein to Harvey Weinstein to the foreign donors to the Clinton Global Initiative. The deal was simple: Pay up, genuflect, and get on with your existence. It was like a papacy selling indulgences, at the same time that everyone knew that the cardinals were up to no good. The 2016 election demolished Clinton world once and for all, to be replaced by the cult of Obama, an austere sect designated by their tailored hair shirts with Nehru collars. “That is not who we are as Americans,” they chant, as Harvey Weinstein’s ashes are scattered in the wind."

A very powerful piece depicting the cowardice of the Hollywood crowd, many of them leading figures who knew of Weinstein's behavior but were too afraid or too selfish to reveal the truth.  Quote: "In all these cases — the phony cowards like the Ashley Judds, the Meryl Streeps, the Hillary Clintons whose political races and foundations have been greased by pigs like Harvey Weinstein whose identification with Bill Clinton is all-too-comprehensible — the cowardice is overwhelming. Shivering, sniveling, gutless cowards who actually have been positioned for years and years to take down this pig. Had they done so, they could have spared dozens more women the shame and trauma of subsequent Weinstein assaults and outrages. But they were too cowardly to endanger their stations in Hollywood. Dared not speak out against a mogul, a “God.” Shivered, kept silent, perhaps endured silent nightmares and cold sweats. But nary a word. Because, while safely “speaking truth to power” from safe distances, they never would risk their own tuxedoes and glittering dinner gowns, their jewels and diamonds, and their access to invitations to the next Hollywood gala. Too dangerous. Too risky. Better to tweet a dismembered bloody head depicting the duly, lawfully, and democratically elected President of the United States. And then at the Awards ceremonies and the “Women’s marches” they congratulate themselves for their courage to wear vagina hats and obscene tee-shirts, to recite filthy “poems” and to speak of blowing up the White House. That is not “speaking truth to power.” It is the courage of cowards. And it is the sniveling, shriveling, shivering cowardice that even the Wizard of Oz could not heal."  

More on the Hollywood mess including cover ups.

The left is now promoting child pornography.  What is it with the left's obsession with sex?  Quote: "Pro-family advocates are up in arms about a recent animated Netflix cartoon series sexualizing children and promoting pedophilia that was recently showcased by “The late Show’s” Stephen Colbert. Nick Kroll, a co-creator of the so-called “Big Mouth” show, recently stumped his potentially dangerous series on Colbert’s show. The project focuses on adolescents struggling with puberty and sexual identity. The “Big Mouth” show is basically animated porn. It features hardcore masturbation, condom creatures, puberty fairies, and other grotesque characters that mock the seriousness of teen sexual identity and surrounding issues. The show crosses the line of decency again and again. In one scene, the “masturbation pillow” swoons for its sexual abuser and declares it wants to be more than just a “fling.”

This provide good food for thought.  Current conditions make it relevant to the mess our country is now in.  Quote: "Here’s what the rule of law means in a nutshell: it means that everyone is treated the same under the law, everyone is held equally accountable to abiding by the law, and no one is given a free pass based on their politics, their connections, their wealth, their status or any other bright line test used to confer special treatment on the elite. We need to stop being victimized by these predators. As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, I’m not just talking about the political predators in office, but the ones who are running the show behind the scenes—the shadow government—comprised of unelected government bureaucrats whose powers are unaffected by elections, unaltered by populist movements, and beyond the reach of the law. There is no way to erase the scars left by the government’s greed for money and power, its disregard for human life, its corruption and graft, its pollution of the environment, its reliance on excessive force in order to ensure compliance, its covert activities, its illegal surveillance, and its blatant disdain for the rule of law."

These two well known Hollywood actors now need to be boycotted.  They helped hide the despicable antics of well known and powerful Democrat operative and sexual predator Harvey Weinstein.   It is truly unfortunate that this former first lady has such high regard for this Weinstein sexual pervert and a women harasser to boot.  Remember when she said she felt sick to the stomach when Trump was caught making locker room talk?  She is nothing if not a hypocritical Democrat/leftist hack. She attacks anyone who does not agree with her but gives a pass no matter how heinous someone is so long as they are in her political camp. It is notable that she could not bring herself to say the same or worse about Bill Clinton.   That is the behavior of so called liberals and progressives who claim to be the most tolerant people in the universe. Past notes have exposed the absence of logic in so much of liberal/progressive thinking. Here are two brief examples that solidify the point.   And,

This short piece by Walter Williams is a real education. He addresses 5 illogical and stupid ideas taught by so called academics at our nation's colleges and universities.  These people are a huge part of the problem with our country.  What so many are doing is using their captive audience platform to dumb down students they are suppose to teach students to think for themselves and expand their understanding across a broad spectrum of ideas.  Instead of doing their job of expanding the minds of their charges they are propagandizing them with their own illogical socialistic, progressive and destructive leftist nonsense.  Williams is absolutely right.  So much of America's academia elites have lost their moral compass.

This is an outline of a book that details the devastating effects of the political left's contribution to the destruction of families and moral norms of our national culture.

The leftist driven nonsense of disrespecting the country and its fans by pampered millionaire NFL players is killing the NFL and owners are starting to take notice.  

This is an example of what happens when Democrats run a state or city for any length of time.  It has happened over and over and over again.  It is a tragedy and needs to stop.  Illinois has been under Democrat control for decades.  The people elected a Republican governor to try and get things under control.  But the Democrat controlled legislature overturns his veto's and the spending continues. Their state debt is massive. Three maybe four former Democrat governors have been convicted of corruption and are now or have served time in prison.  If you want corrupt government elect Democrats and you will eventually get it.   Corrupt Democrats and Democrat policies are a confirmed recipe for failure.  Their spend, spend and spend some more programs without consideration for how to pay for them is a infamous and recurring theme when Democrats are in charge of anything. Remember, Obama cut his teeth in Illinois politics and brought what he learned to Washington.  The disastrous results are now apparent to all who have their eyes and ears open.

It is not possible to believe anything leftist news outlets like the New York Times put out. Sometimes things may be okay. Other times not so much. The one thing we do know is that whatever left leaning outlets publish will have a definite liberal bias. The problem they create for themselves by doing this is readers do not know what to believe because of frequent later revelations that they were partly or entirely wrong.  This piece provides insight into just why that is. 
The following paragraphs deal with leftist Hollywood Icons and Some ofTheir Leftist Political Friends.

Anyone who idolizes the icons of Hollywood needs to carefully consider who and what they are.  This piece will help people understand that they are not who they pretend to be. Quote: "Sometimes the longer you boil the pot, the more the scum rises to the top. It’s called “Hollywood.” That’s what we’re all now witnessing with a gamut of liberal Hollywood elitists now being called out by women for abuse, exploitation, misogyny and every other sicko behavior the Hollywood culture ridiculously claimed was only carried out by conservatives. Hollywood media “god” Harvey Weinstein’s world is imploding by the hour as women keep pouring out of the woodwork, affirming that he man-handled them into unwelcome gropes, perverted showers or even forced oral sex, all under the premise that Weinstein could turn them into movie stars if they would just drop their panties on command. The entire left-wing media, not surprisingly, covered up all this for at least a decade, enabling Weinstein to continue his predatory behavior that targeted young, vulnerable women. Those media outlets that engaged in the cover-up include the New York Times and NBC News, among dozens of other usual suspects."  And, "Jimmy Kimmel, Anthony Weiner, Ben Affleck, Bill Clinton, Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein… are you starting the notice the pattern here yet? They’re all Clinton supporters and die-hard leftists, and they’ve all been caught abusing women, raping women or exploiting women through predatory or highly inappropriate behavior. They all hate the Second Amendment, they’re all pro-abortion, and they all called out Donald Trump for his supposed mistreatment of women. Yet the dark secrets in their own closets are far more egregious than anything Donald Trump ever did by merely talking with the help of some raunchy locker room lingo. (Follow more news about celebrity reputations at"  And, "No crime is too grievous for the left to tolerate among their own political cultists.  For over a decade, the left-wing media deliberately buried the Weinstein story, making sure his large donations to left-wing causes wouldn’t be interrupted. Innocent women paid the price, of course, while the left-wing fake news media machine went all-in for Weinstein, becoming complicit in the multitude of crimes committed against women. In addition to the New York Times burying the story in 2004, we also now know that NBC News tried to crush the story in the last two weeks. The cover-up may have even been ordered by top executives at NBC News, reports"    See what I mean?
This item exsposes how much the political left Hollywood and Democrats loved and supported Harvey Weinstein despite his long history of sexual abuse.  They now are forced to sing a much different tune.  Quote: "Democrats and liberal celebrities used to admire and praise Hollywood mogul and Democratic mega-donor Harvey Weinstein, but they have been distancing themselves from him after allegations emerged last week that he had settled sexual harassment claims with at least eight different women over the span of nearly three decades."  And, "Weinstein has also received backlash from Democratic politicians, many of whom accepted donations from him for years. Some Democrats have donated that money to various charities supporting women in the last few days after the allegations went public. Weinstein donated nearly $600,000 to Democrats since the early 2000s.  And, "Weinstein was also a major donor and bundler to the failed presidential campaigns of Hilary Clinton and two-term former president Barack Obama. Weinstein hosted multiple fundraisers for Clinton during her 2016 campaign and donated more than $30,000 to the Hillary Victory Fund, a joint fundraising committee between Clinton's campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and more than 30 state Democratic parties. He has also given at least $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation." And,"Obama's oldest daughter, Malia, interned for Weinstein over the summer at the Weinstein Company. Several former Obama administration officials castigated Weinstein on Twitter after the Times report came out, despite their one-time boss's silence. Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau called Weinstein "a monstrous piece of shit," while another Obama speechwriter, Jon Lovett, said "there should be congressional hearings on Weinstein, Miramax, and the Weinstein Company." Obama's former National Security Council spokesman, Tommy Vietor‏, wrote that Weinstein "has been a well-known scumbag for a long time.""   Notice how some of Obama's associates are now seeking all kinds of ways to distance themselves from Weinstein...that is nothing but late blooming cover.  Obama knew but still let his daughter intern with one of his organization.  Former friends and associates with full knowledge only came out against Weinstein when it is politically necessary to do so. No one should be fooled into thinking they are sincere. If he had not been exposed they would still be tight buddies.  That is who they are.

Former Bears coach Mike Ditka comments on anthem protests, oppression and race

Former Bears coach and player Mike Ditka appeared on Westwood One’s Monday Night Football pregame radio show with host ​Jim Gray before Chicago's game against the Vikings. He was asked about the protests during the anthem and whether he would bench players if they did anything but stand during the song.
Here's what he said:
“Yes, I don’t care who you are, how much money you make. If you don’t respect our country, then you shouldn’t be in this country playing football. Go to another country and play football. If you had to go somewhere else and try to play the sport, you wouldn’t have a job. If you don’t respect this flag and this country, then you don’t know what this is all about. I would say, adios.”
Ditka was then asked about the issues that caused players to protest in the first place. According to the former football player, those issues are made up.
“I don’t know what social injustices [there] have been. Muhammad Ali rose to the top. Jesse Owens is one of the classiest individuals that ever lived. Is everything based on color? I don’t see it that way. You have to be color blind in this country. You have to look at a person for what he is and what he stands for and how he produces — not by the color of his skin. That has never had anything to do with anything.
“But, all of a sudden, it has become a big deal now — about oppression. There has been no oppression in the last 100 years that I know of. Now maybe I’m not watching it as carefully as other people. I think the opportunity is there for everybody — race, religion, creed, color, nationality. If you want to work, if you want to try, if you want to put effort in, you can accomplish anything. And we have watched that throughout our history of our country.
“People rise to the top and have become very influential people in our country by doing the right things. I don’t think burning the flag, I don’t think protesting the country, it’s not about the country. They are protesting maybe an individual, and that’s wrong too. You have a ballot box, you have an election. That’s where you protest. You elect the person you want to be in office. And if you don’t get that person in office, I think you respect the other one. Period.”
After his playing days, Ditka worked for ESPN on its primetime "NFL Countdown" show. He no longer appeared on that show in 2016 in favor of a more limited role, although he hasn't made many appearances on the network since then.

Interesting Bits of News 3

The Clinton family just cannot seem to follow common sense, logic or the law.  Quote: "The Clinton family has found themselves in so many scandals that you can’t count them all on two hands. And Chelsea just racked up a new one to add to her family’s “legacy.” But this one could be major enough to bring down her whole family. Following in her mother’s footsteps, Chelsea Clinton is alleged to have put national security at risk in order to hook her “best friend” up with $11 million dollars in defense contracts. And her friend didn’t even have to get a security clearance. Jacqueline Newmyer is the president of a company called the Long Term Strategy Group, who has for over ten years received a number of Defense contracts from a secretive think tank called Office of Net Assessment."   Collectively they just seem not to understand what national security and classified information means.

To my way of thinking what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

Al Sharpton has long been a part of the political left's race baiting team.  Black commentator David Webb puts him in his place in this interview.  Quote: "Webb himself is a card-carrying member of the well-known gun-advocacy organization, and as he tells Fox’s Stuart Varney, claims of prejudice couldn’t be further from the truth. Sharpton, however, has a long history of race-baiting, beginning with the shameful Tawana Brawley episode in 1987, wherein he presented 15-year-old high-school student Brawley as a young black victim of a horribly degrading attack by three white assailants. At the time of the incident, New Yorkers were aghast at the viciousness and the callousness of the crime (Brawley claimed to have been raped and smeared with excrement). However, as time went on, the truth emerged — Brawley had been lying through her teeth, but Sharpton never apologized."   Sharpton is a hateful race baiter.

This is typical.  Ugliness is normal behavior for far too many liberals/Democrats whether in politics or not.  What this Democrat executive at CBS said is nothing short of disgusting.  No class whatever.  She got what she deserved.

This Muslim woman is a disgusting human being.  She thinks killing innocent people is legitimate actions for the leftist/socialist fight for their ridiculous view of what they call "social justice".  What they call social justice is really social injustice. This whole leftist meme is a disaster for the human race and dispels any reason to believe Islam is a religion of peace and justice.

As usual Patrick Buchanan offers us thoughtful commentary.

The government run Social Security program is in deep trouble.  Quote: "Put plainly, Social Security is the most important social program for seniors in this country. Without the guaranteed monthly income Social Security provides, poverty levels among seniors would spike from 8.8% to more than 40%, according to a study by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP). That's how important Social Security is. Unfortunately, this financial foundation for seniors is crumbling before our eyes. A recently released report from the Social Security Board of Trustees suggests that in less than two decades' time, the program we know today could undergo major changes, all of which would seem to be bad news for current and future retirees. Should Congress fail to make any changes to Social Security, up to a 23% across-the-board cut in benefits could be headed seniors' way by 2034, per the report."

This is an interesting piece from The American Spectator chronicling 50 years in the business and along for the ride documenting the multitude of Clinton follies. Quote: "The American Spectator was the right job for me, and frankly I’ve had a ball, so has Wlady, and so have scores of others who have written at The American Spectator and moved on. If Hillary Clinton had taken a job with us she might have greeted every day with a smile on her face, a spring in her step — happy, happy Hillary. But then where would we put her? In the 1960s she interned with communists and contributed to a law review depicting the police as pigs. In the 1970s she dealt in cattle futures and began what would become many long decades of fabricating cover stories for Bill. What is more, she began fabricating stories about herself that have never ended."

This may seem like piling on but it is not.  It is just that the unethical and unsavory behavior of Obama and his administration keeps getting exposed. Quote: It is no news that Obama used the Internal Revenue Service as a political weapon." And, "... the scope of the abuse was much broader, including one revealing the White House used the IRS to pressure Americans to support Obamacare. “So now we have more evidence of more Obama IRS abuses targeting innocent Americans – all in the name of Obamacare,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “No wonder it took a federal lawsuit and court order to get these documents – as they show the Obama White House and its agencies were happy to threaten and treat Americans like lab rats in order to bolster Obamacare.”

Walter Williams is truly a good man and someone with an enormous amount of wisdom and dignity.  I really do with the progressive left would admire him as much as I do. Quote: "Let’s throw out a few numbers so we can put in perspective the NFL players taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem. Many say they are protesting against police treatment of blacks and racial discrimination. We might ask just how much sense their protest makes."  And, "So what can be done? Black people need to find new heroes. Right now, at least in terms of the support given, their heroes are criminals such as Baltimore’s Freddie Gray, Ferguson’s Michael Brown and Florida’s Trayvon Martin. Black support tends to go toward the criminals in the community rather than to the overwhelming number of people in the community who are law-abiding. That needs to end. What also needs to end is the lack of respect for and cooperation with police officers. Some police are crooked, but black people are likelier to be victims of violent confrontations with police officers than whites simply because blacks commit more violent crimes than whites per capita. For a race of people, these crime statistics are by no means flattering, but if something good is to be done about it, we cannot fall prey to the blame games that black politicians, black NFL players, civil rights leaders and white liberals want to play. If their vision is accepted, we can expect little improvement of the status quo."
If you think the radical left generally and Antifa specifically are comprised of good guys and gals wanting to do good you need to read this.

This item illustrates well the rank hypocrisy of Democrats and their irrational hype about gun control.  Quote: "According to the statistics, nearly five times more people died in Chicago this year than in the Las Vegas shooting. Yet the mainstream media continually turns a blind eye to the dead and fails to hold Democrat politicians like Mayor Rahm Emanuel accountable for the city’s chaotic condition. The reason is, Chicago doesn’t fit the narrative the left-leaning press wants to spin. Chicago saw 32 people shot (four of them fatally) last weekend. Do only mass shootings get intense media scrutiny?  That’s because, unlike the Las Vegas shooting, most of the gun violence in Chicago is crime and gang-related–and the people who commit these crimes use illegal weapons. According to the Washington Post, only one-in-five gun crimes are committed by the legal owner of the firearm. In the vast majority of cases, criminals use stolen or illegally-obtained weapons. This makes sense. After all, registered guns can be tracked down, and the last thing criminals want is to leave a trail leading back to them. Also, many violent criminals are repeat offenders. Because laws often keep people with a criminal record from obtaining firearms, felons’ only recourse is to get an illegal gun. Adding more restrictive gun laws to the books would not stop the mass deaths happening daily in cities like Chicago. As Second Amendment advocates repeatedly stress, gun laws only restrict law-abiding Americans–while empowering criminals."   This has been covered before in previous items but here it is again.  The places with the most crimes committed with guns are Democrat strongholds having the toughest gun control laws.  If their solution were implemented across the country think of what the consequences would be.  Again: foolishness begets foolishness and that is a trait engrained in leftist/progressive/Democrat dogma.

Before we leave the subject of the Los Vegas shooting, it is a good idea to consider the analysis contained in this piece.  Quote: "Lone shooter? Really? And this is supposed to be more than a convenient fantasy? Yesterday, I did a brief analysis of the number of people killed and wounded at the Vegas Concert (573) in roughly four and half minutes, which is the police estimate of the duration of the attack. I mistakenly reversed figures. The correct conclusion would be: the lone shooter killed or wounded 2.1 persons per second. It is HIGHLY doubtful Paddock could have done that. His distance from the concert, his lack of professional skill, his state of mind, among other factors, rule against it.  Any competent and honest law-enforcement analyst would see a huge red flag right away. But of course, multiple shooters destroys the official narrative and opens the door to an investigation that could expose, for example, an intentional false flag operation."  And, "I fully understand that the estimates of 573 killed and wounded, and the police statement that all the shooting took place in four and half minutes, may be off. These figures may not be precise. Nevertheless, they are a good and proper starting point. And even allowing for later adjustments, the evidence for multiple shooters and against a lone amateur like Paddock is stunning. So why won’t law-enforcement take notice? Because, in certain cases with great consequences, the overall agenda and the direction of an investigation are set from offices far higher than the positions of the actual detectives and agents on the scene. “This is what we want to know. Only this. Everything else is off limits.”   Hopefully a full investigation will reveal the entirety of the facts.

If you don't think the socialist Democrats are serious about destroying the Second Amendment this item will dispel that thought.  This is what all tyrannical governments do.  Disarm citizens so they cannot resist a government run by socialists, fascists, dictators and communists who do have guns.

Is this possible???

Sane people in the UK are beginning to understand what our liberal/progressives can't seem to figure out. Quote: "After suffering through five terrorist attacks in 2017, there appears to finally be growing sentiment in the UK to begin arming more police officers with firearms. It turns out that the notorious politeness of the British “Bobbies” is not a sufficient response to groups of machete-wielding terrorists who are ready to die while taking out as many unarmed civilians as possible. We’ll have to wait and see whether that growing sentiment, however, turns into action. London’s unarmed police are a concept that dates back almost 200 years and it has worked for the Brits for the most part, until now. The Metropolitan Police Service was founded in 1829 on the idea of “policing by consent” instead of by force. Today less than one in ten officers in London carry a firearm on duty. A cop has to receive training in London to become an Authorized Firearms Officer and historically, very few have done so. Most police in Britain are armed with pepper spray or mace, a set of handcuffs, a baton and occasionally a Taser." 

Sorry to share this but it proves what most sane people already know.  She is admired by those on the political left but the true is this woman is a hateful racist.   People who say things like this offer proof that they are not who they pretend to be.  She and people like her are the real problem our country is facing.  Hate begets hate.

This item discusses the proposition that ongoing tax policy changes will make a difference, or will they?  Quote: "I would hazard a guess that an increasing number of tax donkeys are considering dropping out as a means of increasing their happiness and satisfaction with life.Since federal income taxes are in the spotlight, let’s ask a question that rarely (if ever) makes it into the public discussion: what if the tax donkeys who pay most of the tax rebel? There are several likely reasons why this question rarely arises."

The Democrats are good at saying Trump is a failure when facts prove otherwise.  Then again as is well known Democrats are not very good when dealing with facts.  Quote: "President Donald Trump hasn’t appeared to be all that focused on his campaign promise of cracking down on illegal immigration, complete with a new border wall, but the facts don’t lie. While the media was busy clutching their proverbial pearls over the President’s comments regarding the National Football League, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents were hard at work rustling up illegal immigrants in sanctuary cities. ICE officials confirmed that 498 criminal aliens were detained by law enforcement in the course of a four-day long sting that targeted 10 cities around the nation."

This is an interesting take on the Trump/Russia investigation led by Special Prosecutor Mueller.  Quote: "That may be what’s really going on with the special prosecutor. The phony Russia scandal provided an excuse to bring in a political pro like Mueller to clean up the mess left by Comey and the Obama Administration. The FBI is not supposed to be spying on Americans without a warrant and they are really not supposed to be listening in on politicians. Someone signed off on bugging Trump Tower, during and after the presidential election. Who knows what other shenanigans have been going on. The most likely answer for why a special prosecutor was appointed is that it was an easy way to get the whole thing out of the White House. Since the story is bogus and Mueller surely knows it is bogus, it will be a nice patronage program for a year or two and then the whole thing goes away. The second most likely answer is that Mueller’s job is to clean up the mess left by Comey and protect the reputation of the FBI, maybe even some other intelligence agencies. That way, no one gets hurt the problems are quietly fixed. What this is not. is an investigation about Russia meddling in the election.

Interesting Bits of News 1

This Pew study confirms what most of us already knew.  The mainstream media's negative reporting of President Trump is the worse in history. Quote: "News coverage of President Donald Trump's first 100 days was almost two-thirds negative, far more than presidents in recent history, according to a new study."  And,  "Other studies have come up with similar results, including a Media Research Center study that concluded the three major broadcast networks' coverage of the Trump administration was 89 percent negative."  They and the political left politicians have a hate America agenda and it is to get rid of Trump so they can take over and realize their long time goal of imposing socialism on us all.

This item offers good advice for all of us, especially those on the left who are doing what they always do following a tragedy like the one in Las Vegas.  Quote: "The motive behind the Stephen Paddock’s mass shooting in Las Vegas has yet to be determined by authorities, but Democrats already are jumping onto the gun-controlbandwagon.  Maybe they should be jumping onto the drug-control bandwagon. Or even something else. Over the last 20 years, the perpetrators of nearly all the deadliest mass shooting in the United States have shared one of two traits: Besides killing innocents with firearms, they’ve either been radicalized by Islam or were using mind-altering psychiatric drugs during the time of their murder sprees."   The simple point here is that it is people who kill other people. It is true that sometimes people use guns.  Other times they use something else and what about natural causes. Getting rid of guns is NOT the answer.  If it were the answer we also need to get rid of all kind of knives, axes, rocks, hammers, screw drivers, lead pipes, matches and lighters, heavy handheld objects, chain saws, bats, legal and illegal drugs, vaccines, poor diets, violent video games and movies and TV shows, lethal gasses and chemicals, gasoline, bombs, cars, busses, trucks, trains, planes, not to mention mud slides, hurricanes, tornados, fires and floods, etc., etc.,.    This is an example of a leftist media type tossing aside the drug angle.  We must focus on guns.  They are evil. Despite the well established history of the dangers of prescription drugs causing this type behavior the left wants to ignore that and blame the gun not the person using the gun.  Unbelievable.         

Now read this.   This should make anyone who thinks for themselves to disregard anything political leftists have to say about how to solve problems like those Las Vegas just experienced.  Their only real interest is to take guns away from citizens.  Their mantra is that it is the guns that kill people, seemingly all by themselves.  They do not understand the simple fact that people kill people using whatever tool they choose.  More on this below.

Foolish people think and do foolish things.  This item helps illustrate the point, at least regarding the left's irrational obsession with banning guns.  The liberals would do themselves a big favor if they could start telling the truth when they feel passionate about an issue.  Their blatant ignorance of the subject or defiant lies undermine everything they say.  Jimmy Kimmel is a good example.  Foolishness begets foolishness.  And, this elected representative would not know the truth or recognize the facts if they hit her in the face.

To extend how far away from actual facts and reality liberals are this piece reveals that they either talk before they have any facts or simply don't care about facts. Their motive is to rid law abiding citizens of guns.  The net effect of that criminals and the government will have all the guns.  How does that sound?  Anyway, here are some facts they either don't know, ignore or simply lie about.    Time permitting this item might prove interesting and reveal just how dishonest, deceptive and manipulative liberal/progressive arguments are.
Speaking of foolish people...Far too many self important celebrities who know everything about everything and think they are the wisest people on earth are coming out of the woodwork to share their wisdom.  And, self important politicians, too.   Their self righteous points of view are surpassed only by their egoism and dismal failures as moral leaders.  Hollywood and Washington, DC are possibly the two most immoral places in all of America.  Here is another example of a celebrity demonstrating his rank ignorance.  What and ugly speaking guy.   This according to leftists is the smartest woman on the air waves.  I beg to differ. Read this and you will understand.  These people make big money all the while misinforming their viewers with emotional  rants rather than honest to goodness facts.  They are a blight on raising public awareness of big and little matters.  They in fact dumb down their viewers.  To substantiate that point here is a summary of misstatements Kimmel made in just one misleading monologue.

More unbelievably foolish leftist behavior. Quote: "Oh, American liberals, your hatred for white people is showing again. The left in this country has been in a rhetorical war against white people for several years now, but it really reached a fever pitch with the campaign and election of Donald Trump. Now it’s an all-out assault on “whiteness.” White privilege, white supremacy, white this, white that. At a time when sensible Democrats (what few there are left) are BEGGING the party to stop turning off the majority of voters in this country, so many leftists simply can’t help themselves. Even if they never win an election again, they are going to make sure you know just how much they HATE white people. They decided, of course, that the Las Vegas mass shooting was a perfect time to bring it up again. Without any obvious motives on display as of Monday, the left took what they knew about the shooter – basically, that he was white – and decided to make it all about that. Charles Clymer, a frequent GQ contributor, tweeted: “It matters to say Stephen Paddock was white and that he was a terrorist. This was a terrorist attack by a white male. We are more likely to be killed by white men w/ guns in this country than foreign terrorists who claim to be Muslim. Why is there no ban on them?”   Rants of this type demonstrate just how far off the rails the liberal mind is.  There is not one iota of cogent, logical or rational thought present when we experience liberal lunacy like this.  Maybe they are the ones who need to be banned.
