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.
HOWEVER PAINFUL, DON'T TURN THE PAGE JUST YET ON THE JUSTICE KAVANAUGH HEARINGS. They became an abomination choreographed by a Democratic Party taken over by its Leftist mob. There are lessons that must be learned here. Two statements recently published must be read in their entirety to understand the import of the above experience. • "Voices Of Reason - And Unreason", by Peggy Noonan (WSJ Oct. 13 - 14, 2018, Opinion, pA17. • "Is 'First, Kill All The Lawyers' The Democrats' New Credo?",by George Melloan (ibid.). Then
read the Editorial published in The Day, Oct. 14, 2018: "For The Sake
Of Our Kids, Revive Civil Discourse". An important point was made: that
children learn by example. But the writers are careful to stay within
the common "mistakes were made" ploy rather than to place the blame
directly on Leftist mobs of adults and quasi - adults. Then re-read the above statements.
"FEMALE" HYPOCRISY UNVEILED.
Not "ladies". Not "women". Just genetic females.
abortion issue is the single most important issue dividing this nation
and its people for nearly a century. And it was made worse by the USSC
in "Roe v. Wade", a crass political decision totally devoid of medical,
legal or moral basis.
In my opinion, the time has come for a
grass-roots initiative to bring forth a Constitutional Convention to
address a Constitutional Amendment declaring personhood for the fetus
from the time of conception and protected under the 5th and 14th
Amendments of the U.S. Constitution.
Meanwhile, this one issue
is tearing this nation apart, much as the issue of Slavery did in the
19th century. Did we learn anything from that experience? Or must we
"I KNOW NNOOTTTTTIINNKK". So said Sergeant Schultz famously many times on that popular TV show of past decades. And so say I about the intricacies of Climate Change, Global Warming and WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT. But
at least "I know what I don't know". And I have been following the
subject for some time, as witnessed by the many articles posted in
the "Arctic and Global Warming" section of my web site. Now
comes the 2018 Nobel Prize in Economics which offers needed perspective
on the otherwise hyperbolic cries and condemnations offered so often on
this subject...and exemplified by a recent Editorial posted in The Day:
(www.theday.com, October 11, 2018). So, please review the following articles, as well as those already posted on my web site. 1) "U.S. Economists Win Nobel for Work On Climate, Growth" (WSJ Oct. 9, 2018, U.S.News, pA3. 2) "A Nobel Economics Prize For The Long Run" (ibid.,Opinion, pA17). 3) "U.N. Ignores Economics Of Climate" (WSJ Oct. 10, 2018, Opinion, pA17). PERSIAN PROVERB: "HE WHO KNOWS NOT, AND KNOWS NOT THAT HE KNOWS NOT, IS A FOOL. SHUN HIM. HE WHO KNOWS NOT, AND KNOWS THAT HE KNOWS NOT, IS A STUDENT. TEACH HIM. HE WHO KNOWS, AND KNOWS NOT THAT HE KNOWS, IS ASLEEP. WAKEN HIM. HE WHO KNOWS, AND KNOWS THAT HE KNOWS, IS WISE. FOLLOW HIM".
THIS IS FOR THE "OLDER FOLKS"...AND FOR ALL THOSE WHO WANNA BE. "Life
is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in
a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: 'WOW!!
WHAT A RIDE!"
THIS IS AN IMPORTANT HEALTH ADVISORY. A majority of people are deficient in Vitamin D.
In recent decades, Vitamin D has been found to be vital for many body functions besides bone health.

JUST "UNA MAS" ON THE OPINIONS OF KANYE WEST. Let's give equal time to the "other Blacks". Upon
hearing that West, asked at the White House meeting why Blacks are
generally Democrats, said that "Blacks are Democrats because of
Welfare", a Black commentator reacted on NBC TV: "This is White Racism by Ventriloquism". "Stupido. Stupido. Stupido".

October 8 through 11,
LET'S TALK A BIT ABOUT HEALTH CARE DELIVERY AND COSTS... AGAIN. After
all, I'm still in active medical practice (my 61st year), I've been
writing about this for decades...and the problems are getting worse and
worse. Consider this: 1) A family of four can now have an insurance deductible of $20,000. per year. 2)
One of the main causes of personal bankruptcy involves health care
bills, often the result of just one serious illness or injury. 3) Many medical practices will no longer take as patients Medicaid or Husky - or even Medicare - patients. 4)
As well as availability, the Quality of medical care especially on the
front lines is declining, leading directly to more and more expensive
health care later. 5) We learn that 10,000 more Baby Boomers reach Medicare age each week! Now
Consider These Beneficial Options, available to our "leaders" for
decades but never implemented or in some cases never even considered: a) Health Savings Accounts to replace most of the commercial plans. b)
Demanding that the Federal Government negotiate drug prices, something
that our Federal legislators RULED OUT by Law in the Medicare Act of
2002, thanks to their lobbyists. c) Greatly reduce the massive
practice of "Defensive Medicine", the direct rest of current Medical
Malpractice laws, by replacing them with Health Care Courts similar to
Bankruptcy and Patent courts moderated by people who actually know what
they are doing. d) If Health Care is a "Right", it is certainly a
Right with corresponding Responsibilities including maintaining a
healthy life style and avoidance of risky behaviors. It is certainly
not another "Entitlement". e) Reduce the need for nursing homes by
greatly increasing and supporting the availability of home health care
and by helping the affected families. f) End the current
schizophrenic approach to addictive drug use with a combination of
selective legalization and the support of medical care options for cure
or for controlled maintenance. This would include a return to a
rational approach to treatment of Pain, which current approach is
scaring physicians away from prescribing ANY pain medication -
including some "Pain Clinics". g) Bring under control the current
and worsening ridiculous regulatory and documentation schemes - made
worse and not better by "electronic medical records" - foisted on
health care providers of all stripes by bureaucrats who seem to
understanding nothing of what is necessary for an effective doctor -
patient relationship and partnership. This list is certainly not
exhaustive - just exhausting and demoralizing to all
"KANYE WEST: American Rapper, Record Producer, Singer and Fashion Designer"... AND TRUTH TELLER. Find whatever you can of his comments during a celebrity meeting with President Trump at the White House on October 11. Then, for comic relief, check out the diatribes mounted against him by the "dissembling miscreants"...aka Leftists. Then
look up several other Black Men who have experienced the Racism of
their "leaders" and who speak out regularly with the same voice against
them. One of those is Senator Elbert Guillory. His comment is very
succinct: "LIBERALISM HAS NEARLY DESTROYED BLACK AMERICA. NOW IT'S TIME FOR BLACK AMERICA TO RETURN THE FAVOR."
I'M SUDDENLY FEELING A LOT YOUNGER - AND EVEN MORE MOTIVATED.
THE SHAMEFUL ACTIVITIES OF DEMOCRATIC LEFTISTS IN THE
KAVANAUGH CASE ARE MAINLY OVER.
THE BATTLES IN THE VATICAN ARE JUST BEGINNING.
See the recent statement ("Testimony") of Archbishop Vigano, charging
then-Cardinal Bergoglio with complicity in the McCarrick case (National
Catholic Register, current edition).
See the statement of Cardinal Ouellet to "Fellow Brother" Archbishop
Vigano, declaring: "Your accusations against Pope are 'blasphemous',
false, 'political maneuver without any real foundation'"
(www.zenit.org, Oct. 7, 2018).
Then see the article by Ross Douthat entitled "The Pope And The
Accusers" (NYTimes, Oct. 7, 2018). His final comment echoes my stated
wonder at the Pope's ineffective response to date.
"The truth is that
Francis could preempt the right-wing partisans tomorrow with a Roman
housecleaning, an American investigation, an accounting for both his
own record and his predecessors' failures. The question that his
admirers cannot answer is why he has chosen silence and
self-righteousness instead." PRECISELY!
A POX ON THE UNITED NATIONS.
Trump is entirely right to question seriously the actions - and
especially the motives - of all of the member nations. And he is
entirely right to restrict and withdraw the United States from that
gang when necessary in the interests of this nation.
two recent "actions" of the UN. One involves its assertion that our
withdrawal from the nuclear pact with Iran is contrary to a 1955
"amity" agreement. There has been no "amity" since 1979, thanks to the

IS ALL OF THIS FALSE...OR JUST COINCIDENTAL? I DOUBT IT.
I never heard or knew of a SWAMP so deep.
ALL DOTS CONNECTED...
Let’s follow the trail......
Here's what it looks like when all the pieces are sewn together. It
smells like conspiracy and treason. Everyone needs to read this.
Slowly, and patiently, because it’s very important......
From 2001 to 2005 there was an ongoing investigation into the Clinton
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.
Hmmm, now you would think that an honest investigator would be able to
figure this out.
Guess who took over this investigation in 2002?
Bet you can’t guess.
None other than James Comey.
Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?
Guess who was transferred in to the Internal Revenue Service to run the
Tax Exemption Branch of the IRS?
Your friend and mine, Lois “Be on The Look Out” (BOLO) Lerner.
Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?
It gets better, well not really, but this is all just a series of
strange coincidences, right?
Guess who ran the Tax Division inside the Department of Injustice from
2001 to 2005?
No other than the Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Rod
Now, that’s interesting, isn’t it?
Guess who was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation
during this time frame?
I know, it’s a miracle, just a coincidence, just an anomaly in
statistics and chances, but it was Robert Mueller.
What do all four casting characters have in common?
They all were briefed and/or were front line investigators into the
Clinton Foundation Investigation.
Now that’s just a coincidence, right?
Ok, lets chalk the last one up to mere chance.
Let’s fast forward to 2009......
James Comey leaves the Justice Department to go and cash-in at Lockheed
Hillary Clinton is running the State Department, on her own personal
email server by the way.
The Uranium One “issue” comes to the attention of Hillary.
Like all good public servants do, you know 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, the People got absolutely nothing out of it.
However, prior to the sales approval, no other than Bill Clinton goes
to Moscow, gets paid 500K for a 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
Guess who was the FBI Director during this time frame?
Yep, Robert Mueller.
He even delivered a Uranium Sample to Moscow in 2009.
Guess who was handling that case within the Justice Department out of
the US Attorney’s Office in Maryland?
No other than, Rod Rosenstein.
Guess 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?
Guess what happened soon 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
No other than, Lois Lerner.
Ok, that’s all just another series of coincidences, nothing to see
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 the Hillary ran the State
Department on an unclassified, unauthorized, outlaw personal email
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. ( Let's not forget at least 10
CIA spies in china were killed by the Chinese because of the leaks and
god knows what else occurred)
Sparing you the State Departments cover up, the nostrums they floated,
the delay tactics that were employed and the outright lies that were
spewed forth 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?
Guess who secured 17 no bid contracts for his employer (Lockheed
Martin) with the State Department and was rewarded with a six million
dollar thank you present when he departed his employer?
No other than James Comey.
Amazing how all those no-bids just went right through at State, huh?
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 exonerates her.
Nope.... couldn’t find any crimes there.
Can you guess what happened next?
In April 2016, James Comey drafts an exoneration letter of Hillary
Rodham Clinton, meanwhile the DOJ is handing out immunity deals like
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 the 5th of 2016, and
exonerates the Hillary from any wrongdoing.
Can you see the pattern?
It goes on and on, Rosenstein becomes Asst. 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 Clintons.
They are like battery acid, they corrode and corrupt everything they
How many lives have these two destroyed?
As 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
Let us not forget that Comey's brother works for DLA Piper, the law
firm that does the Clinton Foundation's taxes.
See 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? Yep, that would be Hillary R. Clinton.
WHO IS LISA BARSOOMIAN?
Let’s learn a little about Mrs. Lisa H. Barsoomian’s background.
Lisa H. Barsoomian, a US Attorney that graduated from Georgetown Law,
is a protege of James Comey and Robert Mueller.
Barsoomian, with her boss R. Craig Lawrence, represented Bill Clinton
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
You may be saying to yourself, OK, who cares? 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 the internet has been “purged” of
all information pertaining to Barsoomian.
Historically, 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. And, although Barsoomian has been involved in hundreds of
cases representing the DC Office of the US Attorney, her email address
is Lisa Barsoomian at NIH gov. The NIH stands for National Institutes
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? I mean what does one more attorney
with ties to the US intelligence community really matter?
It 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
Why does Barsoomian, CIA operative, merit any mention?
She is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s WIFE….That’s why!!
Jaw dropping, shocking and extremely sad that this info has never been
36 Years Later, George Soros
& Christine Blasey Ford?
It has come out on FOX that Soros has contributed $5 Million to Ms.
Ford’s “war chest” against Judge Kavanaugh, so,
just how long has this plot been thickening?? Really makes me
sick to see how dems are using this and destroying our constitutional
and judicial system to support a socialist agenda !! All to

Who is really sponsoring the Kavanaugh accusations?
Party was held, who she was with or how she got home. She was drinking
and said nothing to anyone.
2002... She said nothing.
July 25, 2003: President George W. Bush nominated Kavanaugh to the
United States Court of Appeals for the D.C Circuit... She said nothing.
2005... She said nothing.
May 11, 2006: The United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary
recommended confirmation. Kavanaugh subsequently confirmed by the
United States Senate... She said nothing.
June 1, 2006: Kavanaugh sworn in by Justice Anthony Kennedy... She said
2011... She said nothing.
2012... She remembered 'something' happened in 1982, yet doesn't name
Kavanaugh, still said nothing to authorities.
2017 - She becomes an anti-trump activist.
2018 - Now 36 years later, with Kavanaugh's SCOTUS confirmation
looming, she pens an anonymous letter with grave accusations against
Kavanaugh regarding foggy circumstance that occurred while they were
both minors, then reveals herself and DEMANDS an FBI investigation
before testifying to her incredible allegations?
Who does she think she is?.......and then there's this picture of her
and George Soros...hmmm....Can anyone else see what's REALLY going on
Another example : "Don't Mess With Mother Nature".
INCREDIBLE - BOTH THE BIRD AND THE PHOTOGRAPHY ARE
Hard to believe this Osprey got 5-6 fish at a time and then got a
flounder under 3 feet of water and made off with what looks to be a 5+
lbs steel head. Have you ever seen a bird shake water off
like a dog does? Wouldn't want to get in its way when its eyes are
locked onto you, and his talons are in the "load" position!
The talons are amazing.
There are 3 sequences in this one video:
1st sequence - catches half a dozen fish in one strike.
2nd sequence - plunges talons into deep water to grab the prey.
3rd sequence - captures a large fish that looks as if it weighs more
than he does, then 'streamlines' the fish for less wind resistance in
This is incredible to watch...……… such a graceful bird and efficient
"CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?"
Trey Gowdy nails it!
South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy recently responded to a CNN
reporter’s question about the ban of transgenders from joining the U.S.
armed forces. As Trey typically does so very well, he nailed it rather
How can President Trump claim to represent all U.S citizens,
regardless of sexual orientation, when he banned transgenders from
joining the military? Isn't that discrimination?
Trey Gowdy's Response:
“Nobody has a ‘right’ to serve in the Military. Nobody.
What makes people think the Military is an equal opportunity
employer? It is very far from it -- and for good reasons -- let me cite
a few: Our Military regularly and consistently uses prejudice to deny
citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too
skinny, too tall or too short. Citizens are denied for having flat
feet, or for missing or additional fingers."
Clearly annoyed by the reporter's attempt to trap him with the
question, he went on to explain: "By the way, poor eyesight will
disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad
back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six
arms? Hear voices in your head? Self-identification as a Unicorn? Need
a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can't run the required
course in the required time? Can't do the required number of push-ups?
Not really a ‘morning person’ and refuse to get out of bed before noon?
All of these can be legitimate reasons for denial."
"The Military has one job: Winning War. Anything else is a
distraction and a liability. Did someone just scream ‘That isn't
Fair’? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for
being special or challenged or socially wonderful. YOU
must change yourself to meet Military standards -- not the other way
"I say again: You don't change the Military. You must change
yourself. The Military doesn't need to accommodate anyone with special
issues. The Military needs to Win Wars -- and keep our Country safe --
PERIOD! If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract
from readiness or lethality, it is “Thank you for applying and good
luck in future endeavors.”
“...any other questions?"
That pretty much covers it. Fact is that less than 20% of military
“age” people in our country can qualify to join the military, due to
some or all of the reasons described here.
How long does it take for the average person to become a soldier or
sailor in the US Armed Forces?
The average person will never become a soldier or sailor in the US

Compared with today's world: "Better 1, Better 2".
HERE'S A TOTALLY PERSONAL COMMENTARY THAT YOU DON'T SEE HERE OFTEN.
You will have to provide your own factual support, of which there is
• Large elements of the last two
generations, particularly those educated in the "Liberal Arts" - as
currently dispensed by "Liberal Arts Colleges", are poorly educated,
especially in Common Sense and in the science of Deliberate thinking.
• Significant elements of these same two
generations have made an art form of "hooking up" on the spur of the
moment, thereby contracting increasing cases of STD while further
depleting their weak abilities at meaningful interpersonal
relationships - thanks to addiction to their various screens...all
leading to feelings of isolation, depression and (so sadly) suicide.
• It appears from all the news that the
"dinosaur" element of the male sex that could not keep its hands and
other parts to themselves have given way to the "whus" element of
current "male-dom"...who have been so out-played by "female-hood" that
they can't find their other parts without Viagra or Cialis or whatever.
Meanwhile, "female-hood" (not "womanhood" until they stop aborting
their babies) has discovered "Me-Too", decades late, which
will soon be followed by a male "Not Me" and Not You" trend. And the
birth rate in America will continue to decline as psychological health
• The recent and continuing spectacle
revolving about USSC nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh reminds me of a very
apt term for the involved Democrats and a few RINOS, originally and
finally applied to the tobacco companies in the 1960's:
EVEN TO THE NON-CONSCIENTI LIKE MYSELF,
this man, who invented the Web in an open-form, was certainly
well-meaning and charitable enough. He just did not know enough about
human nature. And now correcting the personal privacy portion of the
resulting massive problem will also not be enough. What about the
ability to hack into massive financial systems and into the national
electric grid at will?
The entire WWW needs to be reinvented in a new and closed format, with
effective gate-ways for those who wish to use it legally and consistent
with the legitimate needs of Society.
As I said above, I'm one of the non-conoscienti, so don't look to me

Thank God that I've realized that all of my life.
MORE ON THE CRISIS OF THE CLERGY - NOT OF THE LAITY.
This is a distinction with a very important difference.
The crisis of the Clergy is the Disease.
The changes in the actions of the Laity are the symptoms.
And yet the Clergy - specifically the leadership, the Magisterium - is
not addressing what I deeply believe is the pathophysiology of the
See two articles in the current edition of the National Catholic
Register (Sept. 30 - Oct. 13, 2018), clearly a reliable
conservative voice of the Church.
• "'Culture Of Predation' And Seminaries"
• "Archbishop Ganswein: Current Crisis Is
Catholic Church's Own 9/11" (p9).
The conservative Clergy leadership seems to assume the moral legitimacy
and the eternal relevance to human beings of the Church prohibitions
regarding celibacy and regarding a related sexual life for its Clergy -
and even regarding the existence of a biologic basis for a condition of
homosexuality. In its application to its Clergy and to its priests in
formation, this seems to me analogous to denying the central role of
Insulin in Diabetes Mellitus or of Coronary Artery Disease in
Myocardial Infarctions. In my opinion, this is the Disease.The reaction
of the Laity, the Body of the Church, is the symptom...ready to resolve
when the disease is properly addressed.
And I still hope and pray for Pope Francis.
"TRUE, TRUE, AND UNRELATED".
I did not see or hear Prof. Ford's testimony.
I did hear and see a substantial part of Judge Kavanaugh's testimony. I
can give Prof. Ford the benefit of the doubt: that she was attacked 35
I clearly believe Judge Kavanaugh's testimony, given in a state of rage
that had me hoping that he would not have a heart attack then and
Hasn't anybody heard of "True, True, and Unrelated?"
In fact, it has long been recognized that "eye witnesses" can be the
bane of a prosecutor's case, sometime leading to a reversal years after
incarceration. An "eye witness" can at times so totally convince
him/herself of the accuracy of their experience that they will not
consider the possibility of an error - and can even pass a "lie
detector test". I believe this to be the likely case here.
Meanwhile,the dissembling miscreants on the Far Left and their feckless
fellow travelers continue their charade. They will regret it.
America has undergone enormous change during the nearly eight decades
of my life. Today, America is a bitterly divided, poorly educated and
morally fragile society with so-called mainstream politicians pushing
cynical identity politics, socialism and open borders. The president of
the United States is threatened with impeachment because the other side
doesn’t like him. The once reasonably unbiased American media has
evolved into a hysterical left wing mob. How could the stable and
reasonably cohesive America of the 1950s have reached this point in
just one lifetime? Who are the main culprits? Here’s my list of the 10
most destructive Americans of the last 80 years.
10) Mark Felt – Deputy director of the FBI, aka “Deep Throat” during
the Watergate scandal. This was the first public instance of a senior
FBI officially directly interfering in America’s political affairs.
Forerunner of James Comey, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and Andrew McCabe.
9) Bill Ayers– Represents the deep and ongoing leftist ideological
damage to our education system. An unrepentant American terrorist who
evaded punishment, he devoted his career to radicalizing American
education and pushing leftist causes. Ghost wrote Obama’s book, “Dreams
of My Father.”
8) Teddy Kennedy – Most folks remember Teddy as the guy who left Mary
Joe Kopechne to die in his car at Chappaquiddick. The real damage came
after he avoided punishment for her death and became a major Democrat
force in the US Senate, pushing through transformative liberal policies
in health care and education. The real damage was the 1965
Hart-Cellar immigration bill he pushed hard for that changed the quota
system to increase the flow of third world people without skills into
the US and essentially ended large-scale immigration from Europe.
7) Walter Cronkite – Cronkite was a much beloved network anchor who
began the politicalization of America’s news media with his infamous
broadcast from Vietnam that described the Tet Offensive as a major
victory for the Communists and significantly turned the gullible
American public against the Vietnam War. In fact, the Tet offensive was
a military disaster for the NVA and Viet Cong, later admitted by North
Vietnamese military leaders. Decades later Cronkite admitted he got the
story wrong. But it was too late. The damage was done.
6) Bill and Hillary Clinton—It’s difficult to separate Team Clinton.
Bill’s presidency was largely benign as he was a relative fiscal
conservative who rode the remaining benefits of the Reagan era. But his
sexual exploits badly stained the Oval Office and negatively affected
America’s perception of the presidency. In exchange for financial
support, he facilitated the transfer of sensitive military technology
to the Chinese. Hillary, a Saul Alinsky acolyte, is one of
the most vicious politicians of my lifetime, covering up Bill’s sexual
assaults by harassing and insulting the exploited women and peddling
influence around the globe in exchange for funds for the corrupt
Clinton Foundation. She signed off on the sale of 20% of the US uranium
reserve to the Russians after Bill received a $500,000 speaking fee in
Moscow and the foundation (which supported the Clinton’s regal
lifestyle) received hundreds of millions of dollars from those who
benefited from the deal. Between them, they killed any honor
that might have existed in the dark halls of DC.
5) Valerie Jarrett - The Rasputin of the Obama
administration. A Red Diaper baby, her father, maternal
grandfather and father-in-law (Vernon Jarrett who was a close friend
and ally of Obama mentor Frank Marshall Davis) were hardcore Communists
under investigation by the U.S. government. She has been in Obama’s ear
for his entire political career pushing a strong anti-American,
Islamist, anti-Israeli, socialist/communist, cling-to-power agenda.
4) Jimmy Carter - Carter ignited modern day radical Islam by
abandoning the Shah and paving the way for Ayatollah Khomeini to take
power in Tehran. Iran subsequently became the main state sponsor and
promoter of international Islamic terrorism. When Islamists
took over our embassy in Tehran, Carter was too weak to effectively
respond thus strengthening the rule of the radical Islamic mullahs.
3) Lyndon Johnson – Johnson turned the Vietnam conflict into a major
war for America. It could have ended early if he had listened to the
generals instead of automaker Robert McNamara. The ultimate result was:
1) 58,000 American military deaths and collaterally tens of thousands
of American lives damaged; and 2) a war that badly divided America and
created left wing groups that evaded the draft and eventually gained
control of our education system. Even worse, his so-called
War on Poverty led to the destruction of American black families with a
significant escalation of welfare and policies designed to keep poor
families dependent on the government (and voting Democrat) for their
well-being. He deliberately created a racial holocaust that is still
burning today. A strong case could be made for putting him at the top
of this list.
2) Barack Hussein Obama - Obama set up America for a final defeat and
stealth conversion from a free market society to socialism/communism.
As we get deeper into the Trump presidency, we learn more each day
about how Obama politicized and compromised key government agencies,
most prominently the FBI, the CIA and the IRS, thus thoroughly shaking
the public’s confidence in the federal government to be fair and
unbiased in its activities. He significantly set back race and other
relations between Americans by stoking black grievances and pushing
radical identity politics. Obama’s open support for the Iranian mullahs
and his apologetic “lead from behind” foreign policy seriously weakened
America abroad. His blatant attempt to interfere in Israel’s election
trying to unseat Netanyahu is one of the most shameful things ever done
by an American president.
1) John Kerry – Some readers will likely say Kerry does not deserve to
be number one on this list. I have him here because I regard him as the
most despicable American who ever lived. After his three
faked Purple Hearts during his cowardly service in Vietnam, he was able
to leave the US Navy early. As a reserve naval officer and in clear
violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, he traveled to Paris
and met privately with the NVA and the Viet Cong. He returned to the
United States parroting the Soviet party line about the war and
testified before Congress comparing American soldiers to the hordes of
Genghis Khan. It was a clear case of treason, giving aid and comfort to
the enemy in a time of war. We got a second bite of the bitter Kerry
apple when as Obama’s secretary of state, he fell into bed with the
Iranian (“Death to America”) mullahs giving them the ultimate green
light to develop nuclear weapons along with billions of dollars that
further supported their terrorist activities. Only the heroic Swift
Vets saved us from a Manchurian Candidate Kerry presidency. Ultimately
we got Obama.
Dishonorable Mentions! (Just missed the list)
John Brennan –Obama’s CIA director who once voted for Communist Gus
Hall for president. A key member of the Deep State who severely
politicized the CIA. Called President Trump treasonous for meeting with
the president of Russia.
Jane Fonda – movie actress who made the infamous trip to Vietnam during
the war in support of the Communists. She represents hard left
Hollywood that has done so much damage to our culture.
Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin – Both revered entertainers helped usher
in the prevailing drug culture. Joplin personally suffered the
consequences. Karma’s a bitch.
Robert Johnson /BET – Helped popularize ho’s, bitches and pimps while
making millions on great hits such as “Jigga my Nigga”, “Big Pimpin’”,
“Niggas in Paris” and “Strictly 4 My N.I.G.G.A.Z.”
Many scholars within the African American community maintain that BET
perpetuates and justifies racism by adopting the stereotypes held about
African Americans, affecting the psyche of young viewers through the
bombardment of negative images of African Americans. Who can disagree?
Arthur Ochs Sulzberger, Jr./The New York Times – Once the gold standard
of American journalism, the paper always had a liberal tilt and
occasionally made bad mistakes. As the years have gone along, the paper
has slid further and further left and today is virtually the primary
propaganda arm of the increasingly radical Democrat Party. Still
retains influence in Washington and New York.
George Soros – Jewish former Nazi collaborator in his native Hungary
who as a self-made billionaire has poured hundreds of millions of
dollars into left wing groups and causes. The damage he has caused is
difficult to measure, but it’s certainly large. He has funded much of
the effort to kill the Trump presidency.
Frank Marshall Davis - Anti-white, black Bolshevik, card-carrying
Soviet agent. Probable birth father and admitted primary
mentor of young Barak Hussein
Frank Hawkins is a
former US Army intelligence officer, Associated Press foreign
correspondent, international businessman, senior newspaper company
executive, founder and owner of several marketing companies and
published novelist. He is currently retired in North
Carolina. firstname.lastname@example.org Editor's note: the
original version of this piece misspelled the names of Jimi Hendrix and
Janis Joplin, and also implied that Hendrix was a drug addict, which
the coroner's autopsy after his death clearly stated was not the case.
AT regrets these errors.
THE SALEM WITCH TRIALS.
Need I say more?
The People will have a great deal more to say in November.
And there is one other reason for the Democrats / Leftists - now one
and the same - to employ these Salem Witch Trial tactics: to give
the Republican Senators from Alaska and Maine "cover" to vote
against Judge Kavanaugh. Will these persons stoop to the same level as
the Democratic Representative from California did in bringing the
matter up weeks after she had it in hand?
Let's see. And let's remember this entire base episode in November.
