“Murphy’s Law” by Jim Murphy

Hello once again from the Headquarters For The Conservative Branch Of Jingoistic Xenophobic Constitutional Originalist Well Armed Right Wing Conspirators Of West Texas.

MEDIA:

I don’t imagine that I have to really remind many of my complete disgust with the American Media. And I am speaking of The Written, Radio and Television with very few exceptions. A prime example of this is the first reports out of the shooting of a Milwaukee black male by Milwaukee Police. The very first report I heard was that the unarmed black male was shot and killed by a white Milwaukee Police Officer. AND, this was entirely accurate…. EXCEPT FOR THE FACTS THAT:

1) The guy who was shot WAS ARMED WITH A PISTOL

2) The pistol being exhibited by the guy who was shot WAS A STOLEN FIREARM

3) The Police Officer who shot in self defense was A BLACK POLICE OFFICER

Other then these 3 small errors, the media did their customary piss poor job of reporting the facts of this case.

Keeping in mind that these same media outlets were the very ones that promoted the “HANDS UP, DON’T SHOOT” lie in the Ferguson, Missouri incident.

AH, but of course the facts of the Milwaukee shooting are no more important than were those in the Ferguson incident.

BUT the facts of this case apparently have no bearing on the activities of the Black Lives Matter bunch as this completely justified shooting of a black thug was followed by at least two nights of rioting by primarily black perpetual victims.

This violent crowd were urging each other to attack white people and one female, reportedly a relative of the ….. how shall I put it..” The Shootee” was heard to be urging the primarily black crowd to destroy property in the suburbs rather than in their own neighborhood. Sounds like the relative had way more sense than most rioters and definitely way more sense that “The Shootee” whose name is Sylville K. Smith.

Then, as should be expected, the mother of “The Shootee” told a local Milwaukee news paper that her son had a CONCEALED CARRY PERMIT as he had been recently robbed. Hmmm. One must wonder if she could have been a bit confused on this information. (In a shooting you have two classifications… The Shooter who does the shooting and The Shootee who is on the receiving end.)

Finally the news was released that the Officer was wearing a body camera at the time and the video supported the Officer’s account of the incident….. But, of course, we cannot expect a matter as trivial as THE TRUTH to govern what is reported.

Now, for a moment, let me address some of the so called reporting during the Olympic Games being held in Rio DeJaneiro. A young black swimmer won two gold and two silver medals in 4 swimming events. The first was a gold medal in the 100 meter freestyle event, in which she set an Olympic Record. This was her first Olympics and she did a magnificent job in every event in which she entered. BUT, it seems as if Bob Costas, TV ANALYST FOR NBC, thought that the most important news after she won her first Olympic Gold Medal, was not that she came in first in Olympic Record time in a tie with the Canadian swimmer, …. no sir. According to this Mutt Bob Costas the most important news was that she was the FIRST BLACK SWIMMER TO WIN AN OLYMPIC MEDAL.

OK. I’m going to say this just once so that even somebody possessing the varmint qualities of Bob Costas can perhaps understand:

Simone Manuel DID NOT WIN THE OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL BECAUSE OF HER SKIN COLOR. SHE WON IT BECAUSE SHE SWAM THE RACE IN THE FASTEST TIME!

ALSO, you might take a look at the Varmint List and you will find the name of Bob Costas in BOLD PRINT. He was placed on the list after he appeared on a Sunday Night NFL game where he chose to voice his personal opinion on GUN CONTROL.

BEHAVIOR:

I have tried to watch many of the events in which I have some interest in the Olympic coverage. I have NOT watched any of the soccer games. I did see a replay of the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team get defeated in a “Shootout” against Sweden. Of course the U.S. girls were down about losing the game BUT in an interview after the game, one of the U.S. Players said that the Swedish Women were a bunch of COWARDS. I thought that this pretty much showed that at least this one member of the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team was for the biggest part pretty classless. She looked like a complete WHINER. I do not know if she ever took back her childish statement but her behavior after the loss was pretty tasteless to say the least. Funny thing is that these COWARDS from Sweden seem to be in line for a GOLD MEDAL, where the U.S. Whining Women ARE NOT.

Then, I have watched pretty much every U.S. basketball game, Men’s and Women’s. Of course at the moment they are both undefeated although the Men have won two games by just 3 points each and were given a pretty good game by Australia before they pulled away in the last of the 4th quarter. I know that the International Rules are a bit different from the NBA and NCAA rules BUT when you are playing in the Olympics, I would think it might be to your advantage to know the International Rules and abide by them. In a couple of the U.S. Men’s close games, they also pissed and moaned about every call and received several technical fouls as a result. This could cost them if they don’t learn to control their whining. Once again, it seems as if the U.S. Men’s Basketball Team has more than their share of WHINERS….. where the U.S. Women’s Team does not. I watched the U.S. Women light it up against Japan yesterday afternoon and they really looked great.

Now, compare the behavior of some of the U.S. athletes, to the Rugby Gold Medal winning team from FIJI. I have watched several of the Rugby games and pretty much enjoyed them all……. AND, let me tell you that FIJI winning the Gold Medal was no fluke. They were awesome. Actually the U.S. Team probably gave them their closest game and was actually ahead in the contest until the last couple of minutes. But FIJI is absolutely the best Rugby team on the planet. AND what pretty well impressed me was prior to their Gold Medal Game with Great Britain, during the FIJI National Anthem, every single one of the FIJI player stood at attention and sang their National Anthem. AND so did the team from Great Britain. A far cry from some of the antics displayed by some of the other athletes, not only in the Olympics but in our professional sports and college sports as well. Regardless of your country, you should stand and respect the playing of your National Anthem. OH, and also besides being respectful of their country, the Rugby players from FIJI were… ALL BIG… and ALL VERY FAST. They had one player who was 6 ft. 7 in. and weighed in at a trim 270 pounds… and could run a hole in the wind. I saw him run over; run through; run around; and run away from lots of really good athletes. I never saw him caught from behind.

Our U.S. girl swimmers all seem to be very respectful when they are on the medal stand as do our girl gymnasts. Incidentally, U.S. Gymnast, Simone Biles is one of the greatest I have ever seen. She is not great because she is black, she is great because she is super talented. And all of our women’s gymnasts show a great deal of class in their behavior on and off the floor. Our women’s gymnastic team is composed of: Simone Biles; Aly Raisman; Lauren Hernandez; Madison Kocian; and Gabby Douglas. They are all excellent representatives of their country and I am proud of them.

QUOTES:

“With Hillary Clinton in the White House, there is no question whatever that she will nominate candidates for the Supreme Court who will destroy both the First Amendment right to free speech and the Second Amendment right to armed self-protection. And that will undoubtedly be just the beginning of the dismantling of the Constitution.”… THOMAS SOWELL

“One key misstep by the Republican establishment was agreeing, once again, to so-called debates in which a stage full of candidates had time for only short and superficial sound bites. Trump was and is, the king of superficial sound bites.”… THOMAS SOWELL

“We keep hearing that black lives matter, but they seem to matter only when that helps politicians to get votes, or when that slogan helps demagogues demonize the police. The other 99 percent of black lives destroyed by people who are not police do not seem to attract nearly as much attention in the media.”…. THOMAS SOWELL

“MAN IS NOT MADE TO BE TRUSTED FOR LIFE, IF SECURED AGAINST ALL LIABILITY TO ACCOUNT.”…. THOMAS JEFFERSON – On The Judiciary

“This member of government was at first considered as the most harmless of all its organs. But it has proved that the power of declaring what law is, ad libitum, by sapping and mining, slying , and without alarm, the foundations of the Constitution, can do what open force would not dare to attempt.”…. THOMAS JEFFERSON

“An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!…. Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power…. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us…. Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of the chains of slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”….. PATRICK HENRY

MORE STUFF:

I checked in one day to watch some of the diving competition and saw where the INDOOR DIVING POOL WAS A SICKLY GREEN IN COLOR. According to the reports it was simply a case of ALGAE which had taken over the pool due to the PH balance not being correct. Then I got to thinking about it and came to the conclusion that the Brazilian Olympic Committee had hired the group from Flint, Michigan to handle all of their water issues.

———————-

Another bit of Olympic news. The International Olympic Committee has stripped Russia of their Track and Field Gold Medals in the Women’s 4 X 100 meter relay due to one of the Russians testing positive for steroids. Wait a minute, you say! The finals of the women’s 4 X 100 have not been run yet. They have not been run in the 2016 Rio De Janeiro Olympics BUT the International Olympic Committee took this action against the Russian Team that won the women’s 4 X 100 meter relay in the BEIJING OLYMPICS from 2008. Boy! That International Olympic Committee is really on the ball aren’t they? One must wonder if it took the EIGHT YEARS to get back the results…. OR….. did it simply take them EIGHT YEARS to reach a decision? In any event, it looks like the International Olympic Committee could qualify to manage the NFL.

————————

I have been reading and hearing about the terrible floods in Louisiana for the past week and evidently this particular flood has destroyed a massive number of homes and has caused 10 deaths up to this point. I am pretty sure that the death toll and the home destruction numbers will rise. And evidently the crisis has not ended.

I just wonder at what point someone will remember to blame George Bush for this massive flooding?

————————-

Folks, I think we are in big trouble for this Presidential Election. Donald Trump seems to be intent on saying stupid stuff and pissing off some of his long time supporters. I have managed to watch him on a few occasions and just wonder if his speech writers are all stupid…. OR…. if “The Donald” just will not listen to them and goes off half cocked at the worst times possible.

BUT, in the early stages of this election process, when “The Donald” was getting all of the print and electronic media coverage, I made the statement on several occasions that I had seen this movie before. I saw it 4 years ago when Mitt Romney was a media darling UNTIL HE WAS CHOSEN AS THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE, and 8 years ago when John McCain could do no wrong in the media’s eyes…. UNTIL HE BECAME THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE.

Any candidate who places the first ounce of trust in the U.S. Media deserve what they get. I am going to vote for Donald Trump simply because I do not believe he could possibly be worse than Hillary Clinton. Hell, NO ONE could be worse than Hillary Clinton.

But, I believe that if Donald Trump doesn’t begin to tone down a bunch of his rhetoric that Hillary Clinton will win in November. If this happens, just stick a fork in our country…. cause it is done.

———————–

And last evening I watched one of the heats in the men’s 200 meter dash which was won rather easily by Usain Bolt. Unless he drinks some Brazilian water or someone shoots him in one of his knees, I do not believe there is anyone on the planet who can catch him. It is just not fair that someone 6′ 5″ can run that fast.

—————

I watched one of our GOOD GUYS, Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke give his take on Black Lives Matter and the rioting following the police shooting of a black criminal. Sheriff Clarke made the statement that these street thugs and the rioters let TRIBAL BEHAVIOR govern their actions. Thank God someone finally brought this out…. AND…. don’t forget that Sheriff Clarke is black also…. but he tells it straight.

GOOD GUYS:**

ALLEN WEST; JOHN BOLTON; COL. RALPH PETERS; GEN. JACK KEANE; DAVID CLARKE

** You may have noticed that all politicians have been removed from the Good Guy List. Sheriff David Clarke is the only exception.

SEE Y’ALL NEXT WEEK

The War Party Is Nonpartisan By Chuck Baldwin

It is imperative that people understand that Neocons are politically neutral; they are neither Democrat nor Republican. The only party to which they belong is the War Party. They use Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, and Christians and Muslims to promote their radical pro-war agenda. Political labels mean absolutely nothing to these people.

Neocons care nothing about social and domestic issues either, except as they assist the war agenda. For example, if liberals want to promote the LGBT agenda, Neocons don’t interfere. If conservatives want to promote pro-family legislation, Neocons don’t interfere. Neocons are one-issue driven; and that issue is perpetual war. For the most part, the only domestic issues that Neocons care about are a mushrooming Police State, so-called free trade deals, and maintaining open borders, because a burgeoning Police State, Neocon-controlled trade deals, and open borders directly enhance and promote the Warfare State.

Make no mistake about it: Hillary Clinton is the War Party’s perfect candidate, which is why Neocons in both major parties are flocking to her candidacy. If Adolf Hitler’s rise to power made World War II inevitable, the election of Hillary Clinton will make World War III inevitable (not to mention the war for our right to keep and bear arms).

Over the past several days, news sources from the left, right, and center are warning the American people that a Hillary presidency portends global disaster. Anyone with half a brain (from any political point of view) should be able to see what Hillary Clinton really is: a war monster.

Here are three expert evaluations of what I’m talking about: one from the right, one from the left, and one from the center.

From the Right:

“In the top echelons of political power, there is only one major party in American politics, and that is the globalist war party. In case Americans needed more evidence that party labels are largely meaningless to the bipartisan ruling establishment, influential members of the establishment wing of the GOP–neocons, warmongers, globalists, and so on–are abandoning the Republican Party and in many cases jumping on board the Democrat Hillary Clinton campaign. From Bush-era war hawks who misled Americans into war to pseudo-conservative operatives of the globalist-minded Council on Foreign Relations, Republicans In Name Only (RINOs) are showing their true colors and allegiances. Blasting Donald Trump, more than a few of the globalist RINOs and neocon warmongers are now proudly on the Hillary Train.”

“Consider: At the top of the list of prominent alleged Republicans pushing Clinton is globalist bankster Henry ‘Hank’ Paulson. Among other supposed accomplishments, the Goldman Sachs CEO and George W. Bush Treasury secretary helped oversee the redistribution of trillions of dollars in public money from middle class and poor Americans to billionaire Wall Street insiders. According to lawmakers, they were threatened by Paulson and his cronies with a declaration of martial law if Congress refused to approve the “banker bailout” heist. Now, Paulson spends much of his time pushing the discredited man-made global-warming theory hoping to profit from the radical policy schemes.

“Also featuring prominently on the list are many of the neocons responsible for squandering trillions of tax dollars and hundreds of thousands of lives–if not millions–on undeclared, illegal wars based on lies. Chief among them is neocon Robert Kagan, a senior fellow at the far-left globalist ‘think tank’ Brookings Institution and a co-founder of the fringe Project for the New American Century that helped lead America into Iraq under Bush. Aside from his own non-stop warmongering seeking to send your children off to die in undeclared wars, Kagan is married to senior Obama official and fellow warmonger Victoria Nuland. Naturally, Kagan is on Team Hillary.

“Another senior neocon globalist on the Hillary Train is Max Boot, a left-wing Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) operative who claims to have been a ‘lifelong Republican’ despite his love for Big Government. ‘[Hillary Clinton] would be vastly preferable to Trump,’ Boot was quoted as saying, adding that he hopes the GOP will split. ‘What she basically espouses is a pretty mainstream view.’ Of course, what Clinton espouses is so far from mainstream, it’s hard to believe anyone, including fringe neocons, actually believes something so ridiculous. Just a few days ago, a poll showed eight in 10 voters want more restrictions on abortion, while Clinton wants even less restrictions and more tax funding for it. Almost no Americans except Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and fringe abortion activists support any tax funding for abortions. And that is just the start.

“Others on the list of disgraced ‘Republican’ neocons, globalists, and establishment insiders who are pushing a Clinton presidency include Bush globalist and leading Iraq war booster Richard Armitage; Ken Adelman, assistant to Iraq warmonger Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and later a senior disarmament bureaucrat; Tony Fratto, deputy propagandist for George W. Bush; former ‘regional EPA administrator’ Alan Steinberg, also from the second Bush administration; Mark Salter, a ‘former speechwriter’ for embattled neocon globalist Senator John McCain of Arizona; and more. Also listed are people with politically toxic titles like ‘Republican lobbyist,’ ‘Republican strategist,’ and a handful of mega-donors and crony capitalists.”

See the report here:

Neocons, Warmongers, And Globalists Abandon GOP For Hillary
From the Left:

“A new low in presidential politics was reached with a candidate representing Washington’s lunatic fringe, a neocon war goddess drooling for endless conflicts.

“If elected, Hillary risks committing greater high crimes of state than her predecessors, including possible nuclear war–why it’s crucial to defeat her in November. Humanity’s fate hangs in the balance.

“Her Thursday night acceptance speech was what you’d expect–featuring rambling lofty rhetoric, dreary and dull pontificating, empty promises, an unprincipled display of dishonesty.

“Claiming ‘economic and social justice issues (are) front and center where they belong’ on her agenda belies her record as a corrupt lawyer, first lady, US senator, secretary of state and influence-peddler to the highest bidders through the Clinton Foundation, for self-aggrandizement and wealth enrichment.

“Hillary represents a new low in US politics, featuring unrestrained imperial lawlessness, endless wars of aggression, risking WW III by confronting nonexistent Sino/Russian threats, serving monied and warmongering interests exclusively, along with ignoring the welfare and concerns of ordinary people.

“Defeating her presidential ambitions tops all other priorities for people everywhere.”

See this report at:

A New Low In US Presidential Politics: The Anointment Of Hillary, The Neocon “War Goddess”
From the Center:

“There is a good reason why so many neocons and retired military brass are opting to support Hillary Clinton for president. It is Clinton’s support for continued American military intervention in battle zones abroad and her brinkmanship with Russia that has so many former supporters of George W. Bush opting to rally to Mrs. Clinton’s presidential candidacy.

“For the neocons, Clinton is a natural candidate. The older generation of neocons were originally found nested in the Lyndon Johnson administration as pro-Vietnam War Democrats. When Richard Nixon became president, a few neocons migrated over to support the Republican president, but a vast majority, including Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, and Scooter Libby, found a leader in the war hawk Democratic senator from Washington, Henry ‘Scoop’ Jackson. Jackson’s support for confrontation with the Soviet Union and his lavish sycophantic support for Israel provided the neocons with a senatorial base from which to operate, especially during the Carter administration. The neocons disdained Carter and his human rights advocacy.

“When Ronald Reagan ran for president in 1980, challenging Carter, the neocons saw their chance to become, once again, part of a pro-war administration. Perle, Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, and other neocons avidly supported Reagan and were rewarded with key administration positions as a result. The neocon support continued for both George H. W. and George W. Bush. With the isolationalist-oriented Donald Trump winning the Republican nomination, the neocons have returned to their original roots in the Democratic Party. The party’s platform on issues of war and an interventionist foreign policy were not affected in the least way by Bernie Sanders’s supporters. The Third Way, formerly the Democratic Leadership Council, has praised the Democratic platform for its likeness to past Republican planks on foreign policy and defense.”

“As far as Republicans supporting Clinton is concerned, it should be noted that most of them look forward to Clinton’s war hawkish policies to benefit their own political and financial interests. Richard Armitage and Brent Scowcroft, past members of Bush administrations, are totally involved in the military-industrial complex and see Mrs. Clinton as an insurance policy for their continued lucrative paydays. Hewlett-Packard CEO and GOP candidate for governor of California Meg Whitman has financial interests in the high-tech industry that will do well when Clinton sinks more taxpayers’ money into the bloated Pentagon budget. The same goes for her fellow California high-tech entrepreneur colleague Marc Andreessen, the co-founder of Netscape. Individuals like Whitman, Andreessen, and other wealthy high-tech executives who endorse Clinton see only dollar signs from four to eight years of American wars abroad.

“As for Representative Richard Hanna, the first Republican member of the House of Representatives to endorse Clinton over Trump, the Lebanese-American’s Mohawk Valley district, which includes Rome, Utica, and Binghamton, has a number of Pentagon contractors, including BAE Systems, ITT Corporation, and Rome’s Information Directorate of the Air Force Research Lab. For Hanna, Clinton means wars and wars are good for his congressional district.

“A Hillary Clinton administration, from a defense and foreign policy viewpoint, will look very much like that of George W. Bush.”

Wayne Madsen Report
While I will reserve a more detailed analysis of Donald Trump’s candidacy for another column, I do not believe Trump belongs to the War Party. But while the War Party is going ALL OUT for Clinton, they are still trying to infiltrate Trump’s staff with Neocons, including successfully convincing Trump to select Neocon Mike Pence as his running mate. How much more they succeed with Trump will depend on how aware Trump is to the whole Neocon agenda and how truly opposed to it he is. These are big unknowns, but his selection of Pence is not encouraging.

What is NOT unknown is how corrupt and committed to the war agenda Hillary Clinton is. And the War Party machine, including its propagandists in the mainstream media, has called for a full-court press to put Hillary in the White House.

Joel Skousen has this part of the story:

“In prior months I have documented the establishment’s attempt to co-opt and control Donald Trump by surrounding him with globalist advisors and ‘friends’ like Newt Gingrich, Chris Christie, Rudolph Giuliani and Paul Manafort. That worked partially, as Trump has absorbed all of the neocon propaganda about ISIS and the war on terror, but they haven’t been able to dissuade him from opposing globalist trade agreements and being a roadblock for illegal immigration. . . . It appears that the establishment has given up even trying to control Trump, and has opted instead to create a landslide defeat for the business mogul, with negative attack ads (featuring his own words), articles highlighting his business and personal mistakes and even election fraud, if necessary. In contrast, the criminal sins of Hillary Clinton, which are legion, will continue to receive no coverage or excused as partisan attacks.”

“As long as the media continues to hide the mountains of dirt and corruption on Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump is going to be the target of the day–every single day!”

Subscribe to Skousen’s World Affairs Brief here:

World Affairs Brief
Plus, you know that the Bush machine, along with the GOP establishment (including Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell), are working feverishly behind the scenes to elect Clinton.

What this presidential election is proving beyond all doubt is how totally nonpartisan the Neocons are, how committed they are to promoting global war, and how deep the mainstream media is in their hip pocket.

P.S. From a spiritual/scriptural perspective, the greatest crime any nation can commit is the Crime of Aggression. This truth is rooted in both Natural and Revealed Law. God destroys nations (or allows them to destroy themselves) who stubbornly ignore and violate this universal law. America has been routinely ignoring and violating this divine law since the end of World War II. I am afraid God’s patience with America may be running out. When it comes to our national sins, this is the one that pastors and Christians should be focused on–but on the whole, they seem to be totally oblivious to it.

Not long ago, I brought a message on this important subject. The Message is called “The Crime Of Aggression: Condemned By The Law Of Nature And Nature’s God.” I urge readers to obtain this DVD and share it with as many people as they can–including and especially their pastors and church leaders. We will continue to ignore this Natural law to our own destruction.

“Murphy’s Law” by Jim Murphy

Greetings once more from The Association Of Jingoistic Vast Right Wing Conspiratorial Carbon Footprint Leaving Xenophobic Firearms Owners Of West Texas.

OLYMPICS:

Let me begin with the OPENING CEREMONIES OF THE 2016 SUMMER OLYMPICS HELD IN RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL …… BORING, WITH LITTLE OR NO TALENT BEING SHOWN BY EITHER THE PERFORMERS OR THE ATHLETES MARCHING INTO THE OLYMPIC STADIUM. I am pretty sure the the athletes for every country but particularly the United States set a record for taking SELFIES as they marched around the stadium. Poor to Very Poor to just plain Insulting performances by the unruly mob who were being passed off as entertainers. They even outdid the London Olympics which was horrible.

BUT, I tend to compare Olympic Ceremonies with the one in Beijing, China in the 2008 Olympics which was the best I ever saw.

I have watched some of the events and was very impressed with the American Women’s Basketball team as well as the American Men’s Basketball squad. I have also been impressed with both the men’s and women’s archery teams from S. Korea. Of course many of the young American swimmers are doing well also. BUT, I have to say that one of the most impressive teams I have seen were the Men’s Synchronized Diving team from China. These two divers were just about identical in size and build and were also damn near 100% identical in their diving performance. It looked like one guy diving with a mirror on one side. These two young men were amazing. Of course I am really ready for the Boxing finals and the Basketball finals (both Men’s and Women’s) as well as the Track and Field events. I also have enjoyed some of the Rugby games and will probably show some interest in both the Men’s and Women’s volleyball finals if the American teams are involved.

NOW, this brings me to an Olympic story which appeared in the (Sub) Standard Times on Tuesday, August 9th. and took up roughly one half page with a photo and a headline which read: “AMERICAN OLYMPIC HISTORY MADE.” What is this history of which the article mentioned, you ask? OK. Here it is: “American Ibtihaj Muhammad looked like all the other fencers when she stepped on the piste, save for the nondescript black scarf covering her head. With that small gesture, Muhammad made history. Muhammad became the first American athlete Monday to compete in the Olympics with a hijab, which she wears to adhere to the tenets of her Muslim faith.” If this is viewed as Noteworthy Olympic History then the Olympics is in big trouble. Of course, I think the Olympics is in damn near as much trouble as the NFL; the WNBA; and many other old standbys.

You see, when I think of Olympic History being made, I have to think of the 1936 Olympics in Berlin when Jesse Owens shoved the “Master Race” up Adolph Hitler’s backside…. probably didn’t feel too good to Ol’ Adolph. Jesse Owens won: The 100 meter dash; The 200 meter dash; The 4 X 100 meter relay; and The long jump. I also have to think back to the 1968 Mexico City Olympics when Bob Beamon broke the world record in the long jump. BUT when I think of Olympic History, what really jumps to the head of the list is a small Czechoslovakian runner named EMIL ZATOPEK. In the 1948 London Olympics, this Czech Soldier won the 5,000 meter run AND the 10,000 meter run. That is tough under any circumstances. AH, but then in the 1952 Olympic games in Helsinki, EMIL ZATOPEK again won the 5,000 meter run; the 10,000 meter run; and then decided at the last moment that he would also compete in the Marathon (which for those of you residing in the People’s Republic of San Francisco is 26.2 miles or 26 miles 235 yards in length.) Not only did he compete but he WON the MARATHON as well. This had never been done before and damn sure has not been repeated. NOW THAT’S OLYMPIC HISTORY.

Of course Emil Zatopek was a hero to the Czech people and was also a member of the Communist party. However, he supported the Communist Party’s Democratic wing and after the Prague Spring, he was removed from all important party positions and forced to work in a uranium mine as punishment. Emil Zatopek died in Prague, after a long-lasting illness at the age of 78.

SO, PLEASE SPARE ME THE IDIOTIC COMPARISON OF AN ARTICLE OF CLOTHING WON BY AN ATHLETE WHO ACTUALLY WAS DEFEATED TO THOSE ATHLETES WHO TURNED IN AMAZING PERFORMANCES.

Unfortunately I must include Michael Phelps in the fact that in his first Olympics he won 8 Gold Medals and in this Olympics won something like his 20th Gold Medal so far. UNFORTUNATELY I must say that after winning his butterfly swimming event last night he showed his arrogant self centered ass by pointing to himself and urging the crowd to acknowledge him. SO, while Phelps might be a great athlete, his character comes into question.

Anyway, I am putting the U.S. and the International Olympic Committees at the same level as the NFL Commissioner’s Office, which is somewhere between a colonoscopy and a root canal.

ATOMIC BOMBS:

Well once again, the date of AUGUST 6th came and went with very little news reporting on the significance of that date in history. I’m sure that the Millennials probably think that it is some RAP singer’s birthday but I always pause to remember that date in not only the History of our country but World History as well. As most of us older folks know, August 6, 1945 was the day that the FIRST Atomic Bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Of course I wouldn’t expect any of today’s youth to even bother to read about this historical day and God forbid that they know that the Bomb named “Little Boy” was dropped by the Enola Gay, a B-29 Superfortress, which was piloted by Colonel Paul Tibbets. This attack was followed by a second Atomic Bomb, named “Fat Man”, on the Japanese city of Nagasaki by the Superfortress “Bock’s Car” which was piloted by Major Charles W. Sweeney. Within days the Japanese Emperor was seeking the surrender of Japanese forces to the Allies, thereby ending World War II.
I have heard that pretty much most of the American History taught in may public schools today pretty much only relate how many Japanese were killed by these two massive bombs but fail to report on the bombing of Pearl Harbor by Japan or the killing of 6,000 Jews by the German forces. BUT THANK GOD for the Military History Channel. I spent a good deal of the day on August 6th watching programs covering pretty much all aspects of World War II from Hitler’s take over of the German Government through the Japanese surrender. I also have seen film of Colonel Tibbets when asked how he felt knowing that thousands of people died due to the bomb being dropped on Hiroshima and in each instance Colonel Tibbets said that he would do it again in a minute if it would end a war and save American lives.

I have also read some accounts of Americans taken prisoner by the Japanese Army and heard tales of the treatment of American POWs by the Japanese soldiers. These men talked of beheadings of Americans and other allies; Americans and allies being burned alive, being drowned, being beaten to death and being used for bayonet practice by Japanese troops…… DAMN! Sort of reminds me of some other folks I have heard about recently.

From a bunch of accounts I have read, the actual death toll may never be known as many were completely disintegrated and many died later from radiation related problems. BUT from almost every account I have read, the estimated death toll for American and allied troops was conservatively 500,000 and over 1,000,000 on the Japanese side. So even though thousands were killed, the losses were still much less than had a ground attack on the Japanese homeland been necessary. It is just a damn shame that many of our young people not only do not know about this area of our history but are actually being fed a bunch of crap which makes America, Great Britain and our other WW II Allies look like the aggressors.

MORE STUFF:

Last week end I pretty much enjoyed the NFL Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony from Canton, Ohio. I was particularly glad to see Kenny Stabler, former Quarterback for the Oakland Raiders and Houston Oilers receive the honor he should have received when he was still alive. I also appreciated the speech given by Brett Favre for his induction. Like him on the field or not, Favre was a hell of a quarterback and you cannot doubt his toughness. Yes he probably played past when he should have but he actually had a hell of a good year in his final year playing for the hated Vikings (Green Bay hates them, not me.) I know that some of the better NFL games I have watched were those in which Brett Favre’s Packers were behind in the 4th quarter and in typical fashion, he never gave up and came from behind to pull out a win.

I guess the best speech of the evening I thought was made by former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. He is a class act and what really tells you what kind of guy he is was revealed by comments made by those who played for him. He really did love and respect his players and coaches. Kind of rare in owners of sports franchises. I have never heard one of his former players have anything negative to say about him. That speaks volumes about this man’s character. Also, his San Francisco 49ers were the FIRST NFL Franchise to win FIVE SUPER BOWLS.

Tony Dungy also gave a really good speech and he along with Kevin Greene, Orlando Pace, and Marvin Harrison were all worthy of induction. Which brings me to the last inductee, Dick Stanfel. Stanfel was a guard who played for the Detroit Lions who advanced to the NFL Championship Game in his first three seasons; 1952, 1953, and 1954. They won the NFL Championship in 1952 and 1953 and as an offensive guard was elected the Lions’ Most Valuable Player in 1953, which is a feat unheard of in today’s NFL. He retired at age 31 to pursue a coaching career. Dick Stanfel passed away in 2015 at age 87. Too bad the HOF did not see fit to honor him during his lifetime. The 1952 and 1953 seasons were very special to me as those were the first years that I watched NFL Football on television in Houston. I can remember Dick Stanfel as being one of the outstanding linemen during those years.

Then in typical NFL fashion, the NFL Pre-Season game which was to be held the next day had to be cancelled due to the condition of the playing surface of the field.

OH, here is an item that I believe will excite you nearly as much as it did me: BOY GEORGE IS BACK ON THE CONCERT TOUR….. You just can’t keep the good one’s down… can you?

———————————
Another quick word about the Olympics this year. I have watched the U.S. Women’s Basketball team and am plenty impressed with their team. I actually think they play better team basketball than the U.S. Men’s Team. And Diana Taurasi is one of the best shooters I have ever seen…. men’s or women’s. And the new girl from U. Conn, Brianna Stewart is plenty fun to watch. There is nothing to be done on a basketball court that these two can’t do. AND, keep in mind that I am not a huge fan of the WNBA.
——————————

You might also note that I have added Congressman Hank Johnson (D-GA) to the Varmint List. To be honest, it was a slip up on my part for not having this turd on there already. If you need a reminder of what a complete goof this bozo is, several years back in some Congressional Hearings he asked an Army General if perhaps sending so many people with the U.S. Military to the island of Guam might not cause a situation where if they all gathered in one spot, wasn’t there a danger of the island “Tipping Over”. I have seen some elected officials say some pretty stupid stuff in my lifetime but I believe that Congressman Hank Johnson might not have jumped to the top of the stupidity list. He sure has on mine.

———————————

HEY! I have a great idea for another Olympic Event. “Synchronized Lying.” Take your pick for a two person team to represent the U.S. Of course the first two who cross my mind are Barack Hussein Obama/Hillary Clinton. But you could have a whole host of vermin from which to choose.

If we had to select a team for “Synchronized Stupidity” I would think that Congressman Hank Johnson would have to be one of them. Take your pick on a partner for him. The Stupid Pool is endless.

Lipstick on Pigs by Burt Prelutsky

The Democrats would have us believe that these are the best of times and that we are on the verge of seeing Barack Obama’s head added to the four already immortalized on Mt. Rushmore. The question is whether in November the majority of Americans will actually ignore all of the disheartening facts concerning our economy, race relations, terrorist activity here and abroad and the fissures growing between us and our traditional allies, and vote for eight more years of the same or worse.

If Hillary Clinton is able to rally the forces responsible for re-electing the tyrannical wannabe in 2012, she will be able to combine the worst ideas of Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders going forward. Worse yet, she will be able to leave, as her legacy, a majority of leftist loons in complete control of the Supreme Court.

I wish that every last Never Trump holdout would pause and consider how much permanent damage a Court consisting of seven or eight justices cut from the same cloth as Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, could do.

It amazes me when I consider such matters as the Second Amendment, religious rights and the criminal justice system, that anyone could despise Donald Trump for his rudeness and occasional oafishness so much that they would even consider staying home on Election Day and allowing the Clintons to return to the scene of their earlier crimes.

When Chris Wallace had Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort on his show, Wallace, an acorn who didn’t fall far enough away from Mike Wallace’s uberliberal oak, insisted that Barack Obama is carefully vetting Syrian refugees, and that the process is taking between 18 and 24 months to complete. What Wallace didn’t bother explaining is how it is in that case that Obama’s open door policy has already let in nearly 7,000 of them since last October, especially as it was less than 12 months ago that the ISIS-inspired vermin first began swarming out of the Middle East.

Frankly, I was surprised that even after we got proof that he was right about the DNC rigging the primaries that Bernie Sanders rolled over like a puppy dog. What did it gain him besides the opportunity to address the convention and have his erstwhile followers boo him off the stage? He went from being the leader of a children’s crusade to his former role as an inconsequential senator from an inconsequential state.

As I see it, the DNC can apologize all it wants and can continue to claim that Mrs. Clinton would have emerged victorious in any case. However, what they can’t deny is that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz scheduled the half dozen debates — down from the 20-odd in 2008 — when they were sure to draw the smallest possible audience, thus denying the formerly unknown Vermont senator a decent chance to make his wacky case to the greatest possible number of pinheads.

When you combine that with the 600-odd party big wigs who have the power to out-vote millions of Democrats, the DNC didn’t just have a finger on the scales, they had their entire fist on it.

Old Bernie was so totally emasculated by the Clinton machine that he didn’t even dare squeak when Hillary then turned around and named Mrs. Wasserman-Schultz the honorary chair of her presidential campaign, proving that if there’s one thing the woman appreciates, it’s dirty tricks performed on her behalf.

Understand that I hold no sympathy for Sen. Sanders, an alleged Jew who sides with Israel’s enemies, and who invited Paul Bustinduy to be his personal guest in Philadelphia. Senor Bustinduy is the Secretary of Spain’s far-left/anti-Semitic political party known as Podemos. The only surprise is that he wasn’t allowed to address the crowd. With his credentials, he would have brought down the house.

Speaking of leftists, I made a mistake in a recent column, “The Wretched Refuse,” when, in referencing the words inscribed on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty, I credited them to Emma Goldman instead of Emma Lazarus. I wouldn’t want to be responsible if you found yourself on “Jeopardy!” and my mistake wound up costing you money. All I can say in my own defense is that in a certain light, all those old Jewish lefties look alike.

I trust that somewhere between now and Election Day, Donald Trump will ask Americans if they are better off than they were eight years ago. If enough voters answer the question honestly, he should win in a cakewalk.

Their politics aside, I can’t picture a bigger bunch of ignoramuses than the 40-odd members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Still, some are dumber than others. I’m sure you all remember that CBC member Hank Johnson (D-GA) once garnered his 15 minutes of fame after confessing to his fear that Guam might tip over if too many Navy families were allowed to join their husbands and fathers on the Pacific island.

Well, the big news is that the congressman hasn’t gotten any smarter in the intervening six years. While addressing the anti-Semitic scumbags who constitute the group calling itself the “U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation,” he garnered a standing ovation by referring to Israelis as “termites.” But, to be fair, he may just be following the lead of his glorious leader, Barack Hussein Obama, who also favors the Islamists over the Jews.

In addressing the DNC convention, Bill Clinton wanted us all to believe that he and Hillary are the most loving couple since Romeo and Juliet, and that theirs is truly a match made in Heaven. Ha!

Having read the accounts of Ron Kessler and Dick Morris, I know that the origin of this particular union was cobbled together in a much different place. It’s a place where a serial adulterer and a harridan given to profanity-laced tirades directed at Secret Service agents, uniformed military personnel and the aforementioned sexual predator, will eventually spend eternity, unless, of course, Satan is merely an unfounded rumor.

Instead of Shakespeare’s doomed lovers, the couple that the Clintons most closely resemble are Joseph Stalin and Adolph Hitler in 1939, when the two slimiest creatures in the world signed a mutual non-aggression pact.

Whitewashing Muslim Violence and Blacklisting Reality By Selwyn Duke

The media and effete powers-that-be have been twisting themselves into Halal pretzels Islamsplainin’, rationalizing how a given Muslim terrorist attack isn’t really “Islamic” or isn’t significant.These contortions can become quite ridiculous, such as suggesting that recent Allahu Akbar-shouting Munich shooter Ali Sonboly might somehow have had “right-wing” motives because, among his violent passions, was an interest in Norwegian mass murderer Anders Breivik.

A more common (un)intellectual contortion is the minimizing tactic of claiming, as i politically correct authorities’ wont, that a given jihadist attacker “has no ties to IS” (the Islamic State), as if there’s nothing to see here if a man doesn’t provide notarized evidence of allegiance to the boogeyman du jour. Yet this is much as if we’d claimed during the Cold War that a Marxist terrorist attack wasn’t really a Marxist™ terrorist attack because we couldn’t find a connection to the Soviet Union. The issue and problem wasn’t primarily the Soviet Union but communism (Marxism birthed the USSR, not the other way around), an evil ideology that wreaks havoc wherever it takes hold. Likewise, the IS didn’t birth Islam; Islam birthed the IS.

Nonetheless, moderns will often use the misdirection of focusing inordinately on national or group associations when discussing terrorism. This is a dodge, one designed to help us avoid uncomfortable truths and which relegates us to playing an eternal game of whack-a-mole. The USSR is gone but communism is still a problem (witness North Korea and Cuba), and insofar as it’s less of a threat, it’s largely because its ideas have been discredited. Bad ideas’ standard bearers will change. But as long as the bad ideas remain tolerated and credible, they’ll always win converts. In fact, the reality that today’s terrorists are diverse makes the point. They may be Iranian, Afghani, American, Albanian, German or from any nation whatsoever; they may be part of Hamas, IS, al Qaeda, the U.S. Army (Maj. Hassan), some other organization or no organization; they may be of any race or ethnicity, be rich or poor, and male or (occasionally) female. They only have one truly common thread: being Muslim.

The point is that, ultimately, this is a battle not of nations or organizations but of
ideas, and ideas are powerful. Beliefs matter. Every action begins with a thought — or, at least, with a reflex response reflecting a world view that has shaped one’s thoughts and emotions.

Yet there’s more to understanding Muslim violence. A comprehensive German study of 45,000 immigrant youths, reported in 2010, found that while increasing religiosity among the Christian youths made them less violent, increasing religiosity among the Muslim youths actually made them
more violent. Not more violent “if they join Islamic State” — but more violent, period. And while the study authors had their own, mostly politically correct explanations, I think I know a major reason why. Becoming serious about a faith and digging into it generally means getting closer to its actual teachings. A lukewarm cradle Catholic may have little knowledge of even the Bible, but a devout one will likely have read that and the Church’s catechism. Likewise, an indifferent nominal Muslim (you know, the kind they call “moderate”) may not know much of the Koran, nine percent of which is devoted to political violence.

Yet a pious Muslim may scour that book — and more. He may also imbibe the remaining 84 percent
of the Islamic canon, the two books known as the Hadith and Sira. And, respectively,
21 percent and 67 percent of their texts are devoted to political violence.

That’s what you call a full dose. Also note that while access to these two more obscure Islamic canonical texts was once limited, the Internet age places them at everyone’s fingertips. Couple this with the violent preaching of immigrant Imams and that Muslims consider violent warlord Mohammed “The Perfect Man” and thus the ultimate role model, and the German study’s findings are no mystery.

Speaking of mysteries, though, the true effect of Islam will remain one unless we delve further — and break ourselves of certain misconceptions common to our times. In the grip of religious-equivalence doctrine, many moderns have a habit of painting all faiths with the same brush; militant secularists hiss that they’re all bad while many conservatives will behave as if all
“real” religions are good; consequently, conservatives sometimes reconcile dislike for Islam by insisting it is “not a religion.” But like ideology, “religion” is a category, not a creed; it contains the good, the bad and the ugly. So while religion isn’t bad, there is bad religion.

Now, most belief sets that have been embraced by man — whether we label them “ideology” or a “faith”; be they Nazism, communism, the Aztec religion involving mass human sacrifice or something else — have been what we today would call lacking to awful. This understanding lends perspective: Islam is not an anomaly, historically speaking.

Rather, it aligns more closely with man’s default for belief sets: violence-enabling/tolerating wickedness.

It is Christianity that is anomalous — as a real religion of peace. Why does grasping this matter? The common assumption that a belief set labeled “religious” must involve generally peaceful injunctions is a result of projecting our own historically anomalous Christian
standards onto other, often historically normal belief sets. This understanding can break us of the emotional reluctance to accept that what we call a “major religion” could be destructive. Instead of wrongly believing we must place Islam in a lonely, sparsely occupied “abnormal” category, we realize we merely have to accept that it’s closer to that oh-so tragic, bloody human norm.

Now, there’s yet one more thing to consider about the impact of Islam.

When analyzing the effect of a religion, people understandably focus on its injunctions. What does it dictate? Yet such an analysis is insufficient because man’s default is not to be saintly but uncivilized; people will naturally display many if not all the Seven Deadly Sins and be generally barbaric unless some civilizing agency tempers their fallen nature. Thus, as with a person, the true measure of a religion is not just what it does but what it fails to do — its faults of omission, not just of commission.

It is clear to me that while Islam may be better than the Aztec and some other pagan religions, it nonetheless does a relatively poor job taming the beast. In fact, it apparently gives great license to our sinful nature. Considering greed, lust and sloth, why is it that many Muslims believe it’s licit to rob, rape and leech off kuffars (non-Muslims)? Does Islam do much to temper the envy and pride fulness inspiring so much anti-Western hatred? What of the officially approved bearing of false witness called taqiyya?

Then there’s that father of violence, wrath. Danish psychologist Dr. Nicolai Sennels, who worked for years with incarcerated Muslim youth, points out that anger is highly accepted in Muslim cultures; moreover, the ability to intimidate, he writes, “is seen as strength and source of social status.” He concludes, “Islam and Muslim culture have certain psychological mechanisms that harm people’s development and increase criminal behavior.”

Also note that the West’s foundational faith, Christianity, and its root, Judaism — the two faiths Westerners are best acquainted with and whose norms they may reflexively (and unwisely) project onto Islam — have as the basis of their moral law the Ten Commandments. Islam’s moral law is Sharia. And ne’er the twain shall meet.

In other words, even if given Muslims aren’t mindful of their canon’s violent injunctions, even if jihad is the furthest thing from their minds, they will as a group still be more prone to violence. That is, as long as their hearts and minds embody what Islam does, and what it fails to do.
