HEADS IN THE SANDPILE

This takes gall. 

We all know what a lousy public education system we have in this country.  Our students are not only not getting an education, they are being indoctrinated in liberal, socialist ideologies.  Like the press is supposed to be, our educational system is supposed to be non-political and totally without propaganda.  And, like "No Child Left Behind," Common Core is a dismal failure.  

There are multitudes of problems in other government agencies as well, but this post refers strictly to the Department of Education.  Our education has been in rapid decline ever since the federal government decided to make a power grab and diminish the authority and rights of the individual states to administer their own programs.  This is why there is such a move to try and establish and operate charter schools.  

Trump named Betsy De Vos as his new Secretary of Education.  She is a school-choice and voucher advocate who has been a driving force behind the successful rise of charter schools in Michigan.  She is the most logical choice to take the helm and bring positive change to our schools.  Certainly, we cannot continue down the current path.  

And the Democrats, one American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten in particular,  now have the unmitigated gall to suggest that De Vos is going to ruin our educational system.  As if to say that she and her stooges are producing some outstanding educational system right now?  

They're to  blame for these messes, but they have their hands stuck so far in the sand that they can't see the forest through the trees.

TURNING OURSELVES INTO SPIES

I never thought I would see the day when I'd be advocating that we all start spying on our neighbors.  When you reach that point in a society, you've reached the point of living in Communism, totalitarianism, fascism... it's like turning citizen against citizen.  

We've got to come to grips with the fact that I.S.I.S is here among us.  San Bernardino proved that and Ohio State proved that.  While most of these terrorists were foreign-born extremists, some of them have been American-born radicalized Islamists; regardless of how they got here, they have lived here inconspicuously until they have been motivated to attack.  

There could be one living right next door to you right now, working secretly in a basement, attic or garage to put together a devious, bloody terrorist strike at your local mall or high school football game.  

The F.B.I. and other law enforcement people can only be in so many places at one time.  They can't possibly have knowledge of every kook in every town or city who is planning evil.  Thanks to our outgoing president, we have no idea who they are, where they came from, how they got here or what their instructions are.  The only person standing between them and death in our communities is you... that neighbor or other individual who might hear or know something that could prevent such a thing from happening.  

If you see a truck parked where it shouldn't be, if you hear some guys talking about putting some plan in motion, if someone suddenly starts talking really bad about us or our government and what they'd like to do to it... let somebody in law enforcement know.  Don't be afraid of being called a racist, an Islamophobe or anything else... do the right thing and be a hero.  

And if you get the chance, thank a liberal for putting us in this ugly position.

CLINTON COMMUNE SICKING DOJ ON TRUMP?

Heba Abedin, Huma Abedin's sister, is encouraging Hillary supporters to call the Department ot Justice and demand an investigation into Trump's election.  Huma Abedin, of course, is intricately involved with the Clinton family and has been for decades.  

The theory being proffered  is that if the DOJ conducts an audit of the votes, the election can be overturned.  Heba writes: "The Department of Justice is tallying phone calls regarding those who want the 2016 Vote Audited.  A shift of just 55,000 Trump votes to Hillary in PA, MI & WI is all that is Needed to Win.  

"They are starting to recognize there really is something off about the election results as they come in.  Considering everything that is at stake, a vote audit should be done. 

"Call the DOJ at 202-353-1555 and tell them you want the votes audited.  Even if it's busy, keep calling.  It takes a few times to get through because of all the calls being made." 
 
While that Facebook post has since been deleted, it underscores the fact that the Clingons have not yet come to grips with the fact that they lost, and they lost because Americans are fed up with them.   They are to blame, not us.

CALIFORNIA CITIES PUSH FOR INTERNET TAX

Dozens of California cities are colluding to find a way to tax streaming video services such as Netflix.  The argument is that cities have declining revenues and also you pay a tax on video coming over cable services, so you should also pay a tax on video coming through the Internet.  They want to go after Hulu, Pandora and similar venues as well.  

When is the last time you heard of a city, county or state saying, "Revenues are down, so we have to cut expenses?"  

It is a proven economic principle that the more you tax, the less you collect... simply because people spend less and there are therefore fewer dollars rolling around the system to tax.  You cannot tax people into oblivion; it just doesn't work.  But, as long as we allow our governments to spend and tax at will, they will continue to do so.  And when the really bad rainy day comes, we're all going to be up the well-known creek.  

It's called "runaway spending" and it has to stop now.  We'll be the ones to blame if we don't make it happen.

MORE ON CLINTON INVESTIGATIONS

Don't get me wrong when I say we should not go after a prosecution of Hillary; I did not say we shouldn't go after the truth and the facts of her Emails and her Foundation, among other things. 

To the contrary, we have every right and every need to know exactly what did go on with the Emails, why it was really done, who was involved, who knew about it and who said nothing.  Likewise, we have every right and need to know just who contributed directly or indirectly to the Clinton Foundation , whether or not favors or contracts were granted by the State Department to those contributors as a result of the "donations," what other Clinton-controlled entities or charities were involved, where the money went and whether or not it was used to buy people off.  We have every right and need to know about any conspiracy between Clinton, Lynch, Obama, Comey and/or anyone else and what the nature and goals of such conspiracies were.  

We have to know those things so that we can prevent such wrongs from occurring again.  

But, I believe that those investigations should be done with the understanding that, short of outright treason, Clinton is not going to be prosecuted.  Exposing her in the public realm for what she did will be punishment enough and seeking a prosecution will further polarize the country and prevent Trump and his team from proceeding to tackle the ills of the country.  

We know who is to blame.  Let us not seek to destroy ourselves in our self-righteousness; we are to blame just as much as she is, because we let it happen.

BURYING THE HATCHET

Although it's not usually considered to be a blood-letting, Thanksgiving is a traditional time when we bring the turkeys of the world to the kitchen, lop off their heads, pluck their feathers, stuff their rear-ends full and roast the hell out of them.  Then, we barbarously eat them, along with sumptuous gravies, mashed potatoes and decadent desserts... all washed down with wine... after which we then take three more days to digest all of it before heading back to our daily chores. 

Somehow, we feel renewed, cleansed and pure when it's all over.

And so it is that we are faced this year with the biggest turkey this country has ever seen... Hillary Clinton.  There are those of us, me included, who would love to see Hillary suffer the same same fate as Tom Turkey, and what a feast that would be.  I'd really enjoy plucking her feathers, one by one, just has she has done to the country for decades.  She's a crook, a thief, a liar... an unspeakable cad in a world desperate for honesty and truth.  

Certainly, if anyone deserves to be pilloried and crucified, it's Hillary Clinton.  

But, we who have had exposure to the truths of the Bible know that vengeance belongs to the Lord.  We should not trouble ourselves with purging our midst of evil; let God do it.  Why get our hands dirty?  Clinton has already suffered a major punishment, that of losing what she has always cherished so much that she was willing to sell her soul in order to get it; and there the presidency was, within her very grasp,  and it vanished in front of her eyes forever.  

Donald Trump was right in deciding not to seek criminal penalties against her.  We can go to back to work Monday feeling renewed and refreshed.  Unlike the far left of the country, we're Americans who have it in our hearts to forgive and to move forward with the more important things in our lives.  

But never let us forget.  

See you Monday.

FINALLY: THE PRESS AND MEDIA HAVE A "COME UPPANCE"

Donald Trump called in top reporters and anchors of the press and media yesterday for an "off-the-record" sit down discussion and he reportedly let them have it with both barrels.   Reports leaking from Trump Tower have Trump coming unglued over the way they reported on the election.  

The plain truth is that they have been far more than remiss as far as balanced and objective reporting goes since before the Reagan administration.  They have been bought lock, stock and soul by the left-wing agenda of the world and they have become lower than snake bellies in the process.  What's worse is that they don't even apologize for it.  They're more despicable than the F.B.I. agents who let Clinton off the hook, because they failed to report the facts to the American people.  

They pass themselves off as being journalists when, in fact, they are the chief propaganda arms of George Soros, Saul Alinsky and Mao Tse-Tung.   They are solely responsible for indoctrinating the American people in fascist and socialist ideologies.  The riots on the streets, the killings of cops, the free flow of illegal immigrants across our borders... all of these ills of our society and more can be placed at the feet of the press and media.  

They have no one to blame for getting their butts chewed out but themselves.

INEXCUSABLE BAD MANNERS

Many times in my life I have been in the same room as mortal enemies, people who I would not hesitate to spit upon given the chance.  In a civilized society, we don't do those things.  We bite our tongues and wait for a more appropriate opportunity to voice our stands where we are not going to embarrass or anger people who don't have the slightest clue as to what any disagreement is all about.  And we certainly would not bring in a bunch of people under some pretext of providing entertainment or having a meeting about something irrelevant to the issue, and then dump upon them and make them unwitting, unwilling partners in the issue.  

Although such behavior is considered among modern and polite society as being boorish,  the cast of Hamilton in New York City did not hesitate to make complete asses out of themselves in a public forum.  Vice-President-Elect Mike Pence and his family, probably exhausted from a grueling political campaign and looking for a place to unwind and relax, went out to the Broadway show on Friday night.  As they entered the arena, the audience greeted them with boos.  Then the cast members decided to berate and dump upon them for being un-American racists unfitting, it seems, to be in the same room as the elites.  

In so doing, they proved themselves to be unfit to be in the same room as the Vice-President-Elect... or in any other public forum, for that matter.  In the old days, we would just pull out our six shooters and plug them full of lead, but that's no longer proper either.  This decadent lack of civility on the part of the cast is unacceptable in all respects.  

Their show deserves to flop and their individual careers should rightly end.  Let them all go wallow in pig manure where they belong.  They can blame each other.

OUR IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS

I just saw a headline on a NEWSMAX MAGAZINE that reads "We Cannot Be Free And Ignorant."  That is the understatement of the century.  

Dictatorships and totalitarian regimes rely on keeping the populace ignorant.  It's commonly referred to as "dumbing down the people."  You control what they are taught in schools and universities, you control the press and the media and you toss anybody who tries to tell the truth or to intervene into the hoosegow... or you find some other convenient way to marginalize them.  Sounds familiar?  

Right now, as of this very moment, left-wing, radical socialist progressive people have total influence in our high schools, colleges, press and media, and anyone who speaks up gets hit with endless miles of vitriolic verbiage intended to shame them into submission.  Allowing all of this to happen to us and our children is a sin against freedom.  

We have allowed this increasing encroachment on our rights and freedoms to continue unabated.  We have not stood up and demanded the proper and unbiased teaching of our students and we have not brought the media and the press to task for their errant behaviors.  We haven't been forceful enough in educating ourselves or our children about what is really going on in the halls of Washington.  Stunned, we ask ourselves how a Clinton could get away with what they have done to our national security and our foreign policies.  

How did that happen?  It happened because Americans were kept in the dark, an active and very broad cover up existed at all levels of government, and we were just too damned involved in computers, the Internet, texting, Tom Brady and everything else in the world to give a turtle's ass about it. 

Ignorance really is not bliss; ignorance leads to slavery.

POLICE RECRUITMENT HITS A LOW

Black Lives Matter, murderous attacks on police officers across the country, the threat of losing a job and going to jail if one makes a mistake, the refusal of major sports figures to recite the Pledge of Allegiance or to stand for the National Anthem, and the constant barrage of negativity emanating from the White House, press and media... all are having a negative effect on recruitment of new police officers.   Cities that used to see 400 or 500 potential recruits show up for a recruiting notice are now seeing 70 or less.  

The result is that the number of officers in many towns and cities is actually on the decrease, meaning that the public is at increasing risk of violent crime.  The situation is now being referred to as "The Ferguson Effect."  

It is indeed ironic that the very neighborhoods being adversely affected by the decline in cops are those neighborhoods calling for the persecution of law enforcement personnel.
