Behind the scenes.     You should know.

Two phone calls to the Ukraine:

phone ringing 90x70

One:     Someone (unnamed) became a “whistleblower”  when he reported (to the media)   that someone else (unnamed)  told him that he found out from someone (unnamed) who had heard a phone conversation between President Trump and Zelensky,  the Ukrainian ‘president’ ,  in which President Trump talked about possible illegal activities  being done in the Ukraine by an American citizen  (among other topics of conversation).

(“You got a problem with one of our citizens?  I want to know about it.”)

The unnamed people involved assert that Trump  might have talked about Hunter Biden, and he might have put pressure on the Ukrainian government to prosecute the matter.  Furthermore,   these unnamed sources say that Trump could have threatened to withhold money from the Ukraine if they didn’t do so.

And then it was admitted by some unnamed sources that they never actually heard the phone conversation, they don’t know what was talked about.

But IF  this is true, the Democratic-entertainment-news-media reports,  then that could be an impeachable offense.    IF Trump said this.    IF Trump threatened that.   IF Hunter Biden was targeted for political reasons.    IF, when the phone call was made Trump could foresee into the future that Joe Biden would be a candidate for president in the next election . . .  IF Trump knew that ahead of time, then Biden would be a political opponent.

Upon that basis of “might haves”  and “IFs” the Democrats and the Democratic-entertainment news-media are running amok,  declaring that they are going to start an  “impeachment inquiry.”

Start an inquiry?    Do they count on the America public to forget that on Day One of President Trump’s taking office  70  (seventy) Congressional elected officials already  began an inquiry into impeachment — on the basis that they didn’t win the election and they don’t like President Trump.

(Not an impeachable offense, to be disliked by the Democrats.)

The “impeachment inquiry” announced by Nancy Pelosi is not news.    They’ve been doing this during the whole Trump presidency.

Newspaper readers and television watchers are bring told this is a big new development.     And they’re serious about it!

People running amok don’t  do rational things, nor do they think through the consequences of their statements and actions.   They have demanded that a transcript of the phone call be released   so they can be sure.  Only they don’t really care about the transcript, do they.   They already started their new inquiry one day before the transcript is supposed to be released.

No,   the media reporting about what some unnamed sources have said might have happened was enough for them to spend out taxpayer dollars and waste time on an inquiry into something that isn’t even illegal.   Oh,  unless IF they find something out during their inquiry.

Well, good.  Let them spend their time in Congress pursuing meaningless projects and keep their hands off American laws.

phone ringing 90x70

Two:      How about another phone call to the Ukraine,  this time by Joe Biden – when he was Vice President of the United States!   During the administration of the Barack Hussein person,  Joe Biden used his high position in US government to get his two sons into positions of power and influence (lucrative positions)  in the Ukraine and in Red China.    

Hunter Biden was given a position in a crucial energy company that operates within the Ukraine, where he proceeded to amass huge personal wealth and mismanage the administration of this energy company, to the point where his corruption was noticed even by the Ukrainians and the Russians.

(I do remember reading about this several years ago, independent news sources.)

They began a formal investigation into Hunter Biden’s activities.   A special prosecutor, an attorney general was assigned to the task.

At this point,  Joe Biden made his phone call to the Ukrainian government.  We have his account of this phone on video!!!!!   In his own voice,  he seems to be boasting about his power to threaten that government unless they stopped the investigation and fired the prosecuting attorney. 

Fire him – or else.   Or else 4 billion dollars of funding would be immediately withdrawn.  Then Biden says he told the Ukrainian government that “If you don’t believe I can do that, check with the president.  He’ll back me up.”

This is one of the several shady Ukrainian deals that the Barack Hussein person was aware of an involved in, in some way.   Democrats in power see to run amok among foreign governments too.    Remember how the legally elected pesident of the Ukraine got overthrown?   Remember Arab “Spring”?

IN HIS OWN WORDS,  Joe Biden reported that he, himself, put pressure on the Ukrainian government on behalf of his son, Hunter Biden,  during an infamous and politically illegal phone call.

No ifs, ands, or buts.

So the Democrats in Congress are investigating . . . . President Trump.

So there’s some information you can use today . . . .



January 26, 2017

Whew!  It’s been a busy 180 years!

I woke up this morning to my local radio station telling me that our state is 180 years old today!     We’ve been a state since January 26,  1837.

We’re the one that looks like a mitten.


If you ask someone from Michigan “Where are you from,”    — stand back!   One of our hands will go up and we’ll point with the other hand right where we live . . .  on the mitten.

We have a “hat” too.    A two-part state that you need a Bridge to get from one part to the other.    We have a great Bridge; the Mackinaw Bridge,  Big Mac,  5 miles long  –


“The fastest five miles on the whole trip.”

And we are surrounded by four of the Great Lakes:


Our mitten is green!     We know what “Lake Effect” snow means, and we’ve got great winter sports opportunities,  all kinds of summer and winter outdoor sports,  water sports,  hiking in giant sand dunes and in great forests.  We have the oldest exposed rock outcropping  in the United States.     And so many great places  for photography!

My grandparents and great-grandparents were immigrants to this state.   Legal immigrants, so proud to learn to speak English and to live just like the Americans!   They showed me that we’re not a nation of immigrants.  We’re a nation of legal immigrants.  Law-abiding citizens.

Unfortunately for the past 60 years we’ve been ruled by the increasingly-extreme Leftists in the small southeast section of our state.   Their voice over there is louder than all the rest of our state, and they have run that great city into the ground.   Only vast amounts of our tax money has been keeping them going.


One day   George Soros/Mrs. Clinton/Jill Stein decided they didn’t like us not voting for them in 2016 so they ordered a (rather expensive)  investigation of Voter Fraud.

The investigators found it.   The found Voter Fraud.   They found  (and this was on our local TV stations) ballot boxes that hadn’t been counted;  ballot boxes with more ballots than were possible for the precinct’s population numbers; and ballot boxes that had been opened after voting hours, overstuffed until the boxes themselves ripped open, thus invalidating all the ballots inside.    There were other details too that I can’t remember, other instances of fraudulent activities, quite a high percentage in some precincts.

These  instances of Voter Fraud occurred in that small southeast area of our state.  It began to look like the greatest amount of Voter Fraud occurs in areas where the greatest number of Leftists are.

George Soros/Mrs. Clinton/Jill Stein   quietly withdrew.



Perhaps there really should be an overall investigation of our past elections.   Perhaps the Democratic National  Committee busloads of “voters”   could explain themselves, nationwide, especially where they drive over state lines with their passengers or where they arrived too late to vote but demanded that the voting place re-open for them or where the “voters” were handed their voter registrations once they were on board the bus.

Yep.  I think Mr Trump has a good reason to wonder.

I sure do.   Mittens are meant to keep your fingers warm,  not to cover over a stolen treat.







January 20, 2017

From what I’ve seen and heard on this day I can’t escape the one final and lasting impression:   we have a president who seems to be genuinely proud of his country, the United States of America. 

And all it stands for.


All its history.


All its beauty.


All its geography,  “from sea to shining sea.”.

The Moorings Village Pearl of Florida Keys resort, Islamorada Key, Florida Keys, Florida USA

All its ordinary industry and small family enterprises.


All its abundance.


All its normal, everyday people.


All its goodness and faith.


All Americans.


I saw all the new people coming into the government, and they seemed to be glad and proud that they are one of us, among us.     I think they’ll do their best.

Makes me want to be a good citizen.

These new ones have their job, now, and I have mine.



January 19, 2017


Each person has his own impressions of the political spectacle that we are experiencing during this presidential inauguration.   We see so many things and we hear so many people.      But from a tiny little corner of this country,  I have one too.

My biggest impression on this Inauguration Eve which I’ll probably remember years from now is this:

On my way home from class tonight,    in the car,  listening to the radio,    I heard the announcer say that some major singer sang some well-known patriotic song about America,  with Donald  Trump  in attendance   —

(I think it might have been Lee Greenwood and I think it might have been “I’m Proud to Be An American”)

—  and the announcer said      “Donald Trump sang along – AND HE KNEW ALL THE WORDS.”


This man,  Donald Trump,  soon,  God willing,  to be our president,    knows all the words to one of the most inspiring, uplifting patriotic songs that makes us proud to be Americans and glad to show pride in our country!

I don’t even  know all the words to that song.   I rarely get to hear it.    Doesn’t he lead an even busier life than I ever could?

But he proudly sang along to this most wonderful song.

That tells me he LOVES this country, from deep inside himself.   It’s not just for show, not just for politics,  not just because he’s expected to say so.

I have thought before that Mr. Trump genuinely loves this country,  but this small, insignificant fact, that he knows the words of this song by heart,   gives me great happiness just to think that we now have a president who actually loves this country and what it stands for, and is not afraid to show it.

I think he’ll do all right for us.

(Musings of a War-Weary observer)

I’ve been sick for an extraordinarily long time.  This isn’t like me,  but I think I began to falter somewhere around mid- December.    Finally, after a “collapse” in early January,  I gave in to the best remedy of all:  a cycle of rest/nutrition/reading/rest/nutrition/reading    . . .

Along the way I learned a LOT!    And here’s where I’ve been in my reading.

Join me in the Jungle of Politics!

(Don’t  read every name!!!   Just scroll down to the end of this . . .)


There.    << Is all that clear? >>          My mind has been living  in present times and historical times simultaneously — because it’s fitting.   The past instructs the present.

Each name in these charts HAS A STORY!!    Each name is a person who struggled to win power, and they did it by various sorts of warfare,  alliances,  intimidation,   influence,   including putting out rumors and Fake News.     Not unlike our political campaigns.    We think we know something when we know some details about public figures.

200 years from now poor young students will be struggling with learning the historical details of the 2016 election and the (hopefully) uneventful passing of power into the hands of America’s next “prince.”

(Oh, I don’t really, actually believe we will have emerged from the coming Dark and Ignorant Bloody  Centuries that will be following this one so soon as “200” years.   It may be that we are in for a very long extended period of time before we regain our human senses, including  recovering basic life skills,   reverence for our Creator,  a dedication to  the preciousness of children,  families,   the distinct roles of women,  the importance of the intellect,  and all the other precious foundational notions of a civilization.)  

But whenever the restoration of civilization happens,    or perhaps there will be merely a “reformation” of human civilization,   people (students)   will look back on  our present time as just an extension of  the rise and fall of kings and princes,  or premiers and presidents, same as there ever was.

Sic transit gloria mundi,  right?

We are so preoccupied with our present princes that they can lead us wherever they need to in order to preserve their power.      We need to  back off from the minutiae of American (and European) politics.     The issues are far bigger.

And there is far more at stake than whether or not our political or social opinion prevails.

I think we’ve let the ball drop as we live off the “fat of the land” in an appearance of peace and prosperity, while all the while forgetting to do the hard work and sacrifice of building and maintaining a civilization.    Civilization is never built with ease and laxity.   And it never comes with ignorance of the past.

God help us.   God is there to help us.

December 19th,  you know the Electors voted for  Trump to be our next president.

You know that  R.oyal  C.lintoness received  “the most” popular votes.

You know that if you take away the votes cast for her in just one state,  California,  that Donald Trump received the most popular votes (in the remaining 49 states).

And that’s why this country is not a Democracy,  but a Republic and why we elect our president through the Electoral College system.     (Genius)

Did you know that Russia *  affected the outcome of our election??????

We got proof! –

(Integrity  –  the quality of being complete or whole, without any missing parts ):


Yeah.  Sometimes you think you can make an improvement by jettisoning the “old things.”      “Let’s do it a new way.”       “Let’s free ourselves from the restrictions of the past.”  

Whoever gave us “whiskers”  didn’t understand the new, improved, modern ways of doing things.

I’m speaking, of course,  of our recent presidential election.

Politics, or “how to get your man elected.”

I frequently hear our  “new and improved, modern-minded”  Progressives talk about our “democracy.”     Democracy this, democracy that.   The Barack Hussein person recently went out visiting other countries in imitation of a final Victory Tour, and everywhere he went he talked about  the American “democracy,”  and what happens in our “democracy.”

Problem is,  the United States of America is NOT a democracy.   Our Founding Fathers were too smart for that.      They knew that any “democracy”  quickly becomes  a “tyranny of the majority,”   so we don’t elect our president by counting  a majority of “democratic votes.”

So they devised the Electoral College.  

It’s as important to us Americans as  —   as whiskers!



November 28, 2016

Yep.   “fake”  is a four-letter word.  *



We’re hearing a lot about “fake news” lately.  Of course,  the danger to us is:  Who decides for us  what is “fake” ?  


Fake (a definition) –   adjective▸made to look like something real in order to trick people

You fake something for a purpose.   What do you have to lose?  It might work.    What do you have to win?   Try it out;  see where it goes.

Whenever you suspect something might not be true or real,  ask yourself that age-old question:

                       Cui bono?

Fake news maybe?    Well,  cui bono?     Who benefits?   What does the source have to lose?   What is the source after?

So here are two examples,  one trivial (like gossip);  and one rather important,  touching on the content of our US Constitution.

First the “fun” one –  fun, as in ridiculous:

You might have seen this or heard this on some headline news story  —

“I  would spray him with mace” ?????    It’s a Fake,  but horrible if true –  and it could be true because it’s all over the social media and even in some print media,  right?

But it was fake, and the source was traced back  to a comedian making a bitter, mean-spirited “joke”  and he got it from a little fake quote printed in that box outlined in red.    And then it was repeated and repeated,  here and there,  repeated until it became a news story.


(Well, anything to discredit the Trump family.   Some people will believe anything.)

Now here’s a more important Fake with more serious, perhaps deadly consequences.


“Someone”  offered Jill Stein   (Green Party)    a lot of money – a lot,  a lot! – to push forward the idea that she could win the election if she initiated a recount vote in three states.

Never mind that she got only 1% of the vote – and that 99% of Americans voted NOT for her.     If she got the votes in all these three states,  she would . .  .  what?    Win?      No.

Since that doesn’t make sense,   she and her campaign are calling for the old fake news that it’s the “Russians”  who have  “hacked”  our election process to make sure Hillary didn’t win the election.      The “Russians”!      Although this has been disproven and no evidence has been found for Russian interference,   “the Russians”  is a vague enough bugaboo to cause many uninformed people to suspend further thinking.

And so – maybe the “Russians”  did do it.    Right?     Whatever.

She won’t be elected.    Something is wrong with this effort.   Cui bono?

What does she have to lose?

What does she have to win?       ( a better question)

Money.   Money, money, money.   A recount campaign costs a lot of money.   There are lots of people to be paid.   (Paid and encouraged. . . )    Last week we saw that every few days the “cost”  of doing these recounts increased by quite a bit.  Up, up, up in steps, to very high levels.

And – to respond to this financial need –  money poured into the Jill Stein campaign – Wow!    A great deal of funds came her way,  way beyond even what she said she needed.    She received MORE funds for this recount campaign than she received for her election campaign!     Who funded her?   Who all funded her?

What do they have to lose?

What do they have to win?

My readers can ferret this out.   Pay attention to what’s being said and not said . .  .   Oh, yes –  and note  Hillary getting on board with the Jill Stein  effort.   Does Hillary want Jill Stein to win?

Of course not.

(Do you think Jill Stein et al.  would like to have a recount in states like Illinois?  California?   . . .   (heh heh). 

(Do you think Jill Stein et al.  will start advocating for pictured voter I.D.? . . .  also a big “heh”)





Note the purple.   Is George  Soros’s  Purple Revolution really going to get going  —  any way it can?   Paying for fake recounts?  Paying for fake protestors?  Paying for fake news?  Promoting fake racism?  Fake sexism?  Fake identity politics?




. *  “Four letter word”  used to be a polite way of referring to curse words.   (“Hell!”   or  “Damn!”    —  only later,   after our culture fell,    did other four-letter words become more common in everyday discourse,   four letter words referring to  human bodily functions, especially reproduction.)     

But the new four-letter words also indicate a curse on our nation.  Fake news,  a kind of self-cursing, if we fall for it.








DEAR “WORLD” from U.S.A.

November 13, 2016


YOU KNOW WHAT?    You have to PAY people in America to go out and act angry !!!


“Morning and evening shifts” ???

I’m still reading headlines from around the world concerning our   “surprising”  election.   The Russian news service has a headline banner which says:   “American Population  Divided After the Election.”

So,  I just thought I’d say, “Well, no;  not really.”       Only in a world  that the entertainment-news media create does it seem that the American people are at odds with each other.

Guess it sells newspapers to say so.

Depending on which studies you read,   68%  to  75%  of the American people  wanted to change our country away from the extreme Leftist policies of the Barack Hussein person;  wanted to turn away from the Bush-Clinton-Bush- Clinton  dynasty;  and wanted to get rid of  crime and corruption in politics.

And then  most Americans voted to do just that.

Actually many people on the Left, in our Democrat party,  voted for Donald Trump; record numbers left that  party to vote for him.     More ethnic minorities,  more women,  crossed over party lines to vote for him.

We all  wanted someone who has experience in business, and maybe help build  a strong economy for us.  We want to get out of these endless wars and meddling into other countries’  business.  No more foreign destabilization policies.  We want to protect ourselves, as is every country’s right.   We want to get along with other world leaders,  with a leader who is an experienced negotiator.  We want to go back to “equality before the Law,”  and stop protecting criminal  behavior in the name of “diversity.”   If we have a religious faith,  we want it to be safe to practice a religious faith.

So, why would it be unexpected for us to elect Trump as our president?     How did the media miss that?   Well, as we are seeing now in endless and frantic  televised discussions,   “Maybe we ought not to have worked so hard to elect Hillary.”

“Maybe we should start reporting the straight news rather than trying to influence people to accept leftist policies.”

According to Russia Today,  another news banner: “World media is changing their tone about Trump.”

Good.  Let’s be realistic  and work together on very real problems.  Maybe Donald Trump  can lead the way and help us begin to accomplish a few good things.

This was a political victory.

This was a spiritual  victory

This was an American victory.

This was a Constitutional victory.

This was a freedom-for-all victory.

This was a religious victory.



A political victory over the  politics of the Alinky-ites,  over the “community organizers” who create little soviets  across our nation which are accountable to the central authority;  and a political victory over the global centralized authority looming over more and more of the world.

It’s a spiritual victory over   the global socialists which are beginning to squeeze the spirit out of humans all over the world with oppressive and freedom-killing authority

It’s an American victory over those who would limit our inalienable rights given by our Creator so that we can live freely and independently and determine our own destiny, speaking freely,  meeting together freely,  defending ourselves and our families freely,  worshiping freely,  owning land and using it freely  — and a victory over those who distort the meaning of these freedoms and would have the world believe that American freedom means irresponsibility,  selfishness,  bigotry,  and environmental destruction –  all lies.

It’s a Constitutional  victory over those who would disregard and discard the protections given by our U.S. Constitution, which defines and limits what government can do and   preserves individual and local authorities.

It’s a victory of Freedom-For-All   over  those who are striving to institute a Rule of the Privileged elite,  placing  themselves above us, above our laws,  above all Law.

It’s a religious victory over those who are trying to change what an individual believes in and limit the freedom to live according to those beliefs.   The various religious expressions of Western Civilization  are foundational to America,  American culture,  and to the principles of  freedom and equality before the law.    To suppress religious freedom,  especially through the cynical use of tiny minorities superseding the rights of the individual,    is to  distort and destroy  America.


(In response to recent  Clinton/Obama/  entertainment-news media remarks):

America is not about the “majority”  stomping on the individual — and if so,  we have in the past used legal  means to  fix that;  but neither is   America all about imposing the wishes of the minority onto the entire culture.   America’s  “parts”  all benefit and work together for the same freedoms.   We are not individually separated victim groups,  striving against each other.

And if you don’t get your way,  Americans are not “bigots.”



But the election victory was  JUST A VICTORY.   

Now we must live confidently as Americans always had,  believing in traditional  American values,  rebuilding what we have lost and repairing the harm done in the past 30 years.

It’s  ONLY  a victory,  but thanks to God,  it IS a victory.

Deo gratias,  and let’s take time to say or sing the Te Deum,  the traditional,  humble song of victory.

Or however it is you express your thanks.

  1.   That   # 1 means we have one full 24-hour period left before we know.

The Spruce Tunnel may go silent for a day or two afterwards.     I feel like I did on the  operating table,  ready to go into the operating room.   Everyone smiling,  alert, attentive.   I was in pain and I needed the operation to save my life.    I remember thinking that in just a few short hours this will all be over with, one way or the other.  The  outcome was out of my hands now.

Turns out I had an incompetent surgeon and ended up with peritonitis which almost took my life.

At least the surgeon was not malicious and out to defeat me.


Or defraud me.

Once there was a young mixed-race man who was running for office in Illinois:

Kenyan-born Obama all set for US Senate

His real name was Barry,  Barry  Soetoro,  but it was thought that the name  “Barack”  and the name  “Obama”  would appeal better to the  African-hyphen-Americans who lived in South Chicago and would vote for him.      He was already reported to be born in Kenya  —  the real  Africa.

The National  Public Review got in on it too,  a liberal publication we call NPR.


Part of his bio:


A  visit to the continent of his birth:


Oh,  gosh,  I have so many of these . . .  They were so proud of their Junior Senator:


Kenya,  Kenya,  Kenya,  in all these articles.   Foreign  born.  Disqualifies him to ever become a president of the United States.

Childhood education in Malaysia,  raised as a Muslim there.


“Religion:   Islam”

He never did quite learn American culture.     So much he doesn’t know about our history!  Declares several times that we have 57 states in our country.  Not once;  a misspeak.   In several speeches.   He should stick to a teleprompter.

So what does he know about  American citizenship?     “Plenty,”  as it turns out.

The question was posed to him:

“Many of the millennials, Dreamers, undocumented citizens – and I call them citizens because they contribute to this country – are fearful of voting. So if I vote, will Immigration know where I live? Will they come for my family and deport us?”

If an undocumented illegal alien votes,   will there be trouble?

Nope.  Because …

  “The reason is when you vote, you are a citizen yourself and there is not a situation where the  voting rolls  are somehow  transferred over  and people start investigating et cetera. The sanctity to vote is strictly confidential.”

What does “voting rolls   …   transferred over”  mean?      What is “sanctity to vote”?

Anyway,   when you vote you are a citizen.    How do you think illegal “undocumented ” foreigners will understand his answer?

The lady who asked the question knew just what she meant.  Her understanding of being a citizen is:    “And I call them citizens because they contribute to the country.”    Huh?

They tell us “We are a nation of immigrants.”


We are a nation of legal immigrants.

Lots of foreigners are welcome,  but not all.      We are a nation consisting of legal immigrants.   Citizens and legal immigrants.

Used to be.

Election  2016:       Be specific.   Be accurate.  Be informed.

Just one 24-hour period of time left to the U.S.      Fuzzy thinking can kill off a nation..   Not being specific can be deadly.

Just remember my incompetent surgeon.   He was rather unfocused during my surgery.  See,  he was due in an hour or so to get on a plane and begin his vacation –  in Hawaii!




November 7, 2016

A little humor tonight.      Or not.

The Romans had to use ox carts and horses to haul in hundreds of thousands of non-Romans to support the politicians and generals who were all trying to grab a piece of the Roman Empire and overthrow its traditional form of government.


Today,  we bring ’em in by the busload.  

It’s a bigger vehicle than the Democrat machine van of old Chicago days that carted my Mom and Dad and others to the voting booth –  and scared them off of voting forever.   I think my Dad wasn’t scared,  he was super-disgusted.

A bus brings in more voters all at once.


They’ll bring in as many as needed.   Last night’s news story was about a bus who stopped off at a western Pennsylvania voting place and was told it wasn’t needed here  but they do  need more votes across state lines, over there in Ohio.   They’ve got voter registration names already prepared.   The bus proceeded on – where the “voters”  could be more useful.

There aren’t merely numerous “accusations”  against fraudulent voting,   there are eyewitnesses,   recordings,   legal charges,   ongoing prosecutions,  usually in “highly contested” states and so far,  all of  Democrat activity.

Several people, some over-zealous college students have been caught making up names to put on voter rolls.    Sometimes there are dozens and dozens of different names –  all with the same address,  same birth dates.

And then there’s the video evidence today:   An  undercover journalist just wanted to see what would happen if she slipped on a birka and claimed to be Huma Abedin of New York City –  then could she vote?    Only after answering the question:  “Will you be voting Democrat or Republican?”

“Democrat”  was the correct answer.   She was handed a ballot.

Sometimes the bus is late:

Sometimes the bus doesn’t make it on time but those votes are desperately, desperately needed.  So,  in Las Vegas,  the bus was late.   Dark of night in the desert.

This is a called a Vote Travel Bus.


They held the voting place open several hours after hours so the bus could arrive and they could do their thing.    As instructed.

Absentee ballots arrive in the mail, as requested,  but with political material urging the voter to vote for Hillary.    Sometimes instructions come with “Sample Ballots”  to show you how to fill out your ballot…   indistinguishable from the real thing,  but with  Hillary’s name already checked off.   Just for an example, you see.

Too many for a bus:

60,000    felons were given approval to vote in this election by Virginia’s Democrat governor.    Virginia is a hotly contested state.   It will be close.  Or it would have been close.  “Vote for Hillary –  Your Get Out Of Jail Free card.”   What Monopoly player would have guessed that!?

How is it that so many “warm  bodies”  get to vote without proving who they are?  I asked last time,  could you or I walk into France or Germany or the United Kingdom or Italy or Greece or Russia . . .   and demand to vote in their national elections?   Of course not!   Civilized nations do not give their votes away to unqualified citizens or to non-citizens.

Here,  the Leftist-stacked   federal and state courts  have pronounced it illegal to ask a citizen for his I.D.     No wonder the world is laughing at America now.

This election will determine not just the direction of America,  but the existence of America,  its values,  its culture,  its genius.    But you  DON’T have to give your I.D.  to vote in most locations.

You DO  have to give your I.D.  for the following:

buy cigarettes
buy alcohol
cash a check
open a bank account
apply for food stamps
apply for welfare
apply for medicaid
apply for unemployment
buy house/apply for mortgage
drive/buy/rent car
get married
purchase a legal gun
adopt a pet (this one I didn’t know)
rent a hotel room
apply for a hunting/fishing license
buy a cell phone (didn’t know this one either)                                                                                    get a library card – renew your library card
visit a casino
hold a legal rally or protest
give blood
buy an “M” rated video                                                                                                                         purchase nail polish at CVS (only CVS? I wonder)
purchase some cold medications

I especially hate that last one.    That hits me personally.   Some of you may know that Son is a pharmacist.      I have to take out my driver’s license and show my I.D.  to my very own son!!!!     But I know my activity is not being registered by him;  it’s being recorded by  Big  Brother – our Rulers.   I call it  “getting permission from the Gestapo.”     They say whether or not I can get my certain  rather mild  OTC allergy medicine.

And then I start dreaming of Patagonia……..

Never mind.

Election  2016:    Well . . . . .   Well,    the Roman Empire fell.    Couldn’t afford to feed and care for the massive influx of non-citizens.    They had corrupted the culture and overwhelmed the system.

But the Crooked politicians  held office for a few more decades.

2. STEAMING MAD – Veterans Day and Loathing

November 7, 2016

(I couldn’t find an angry-looking kettle, so here’s that pretty one.   But it’s still steaming mad):



” Half of Americans plan to vote for a media-fabricated  person who “loathes the military”  and is richly $upported by the Globalists who wish us to be global citizens first,  rather than  Americans.”


How awfully,  tragically ironic it is that the week in which we HONOR our veterans on Veterans Day this Friday  is exactly the week in which    Mrs. “We LOATHE the military”  Clinton     wants to be the commander in chief of our military!!!


The Clintons have consistently been heard to say  “We loathe people like you” ;   “We loathe the military”;   “Pigs!”  (spoken to policemen on duty protecting them.    People have seen them  CURSING  at the Secret Service.   They’ve even cursed angrily at the police dog who was “on duty.”     (The actual words that were heard were:  “Get that F*ing dog away from me.”  — that’s still shocking.)

They’ve been heard using the foulest language at the military and civilian men who are assigned to protect them.


They do their duty anyway,  knowing that they are  “loathed.”    Hated.

They have been disrespected and misused for twenty-five years now by the Bush-Clinton-Bush-Clinton coalition.


Old and young,   our Veterans are honored this week by Americans.   They know how much they sacrificed for the good of our country.   The rest of us can only imagine.   More about them on Friday.


Our nation, especially in the last eight years,  has been reduced in size,  in equipment,  in fighting capacity to somewhere around the years right after World War One.


This army is not ours.


We will fight the next war  —  the next actual war,  where we are attacked —   with a now inferior  military capability.


This army is not ours.


If you’ve been keeping up with the development of weapon systems in foreign countries,  you’d be . . .  impressed, might be the right word.     Russia now has a missile that can take out territory within our country   the size of Texas!    Boom!   Gone!        Russia and China both say they have weapons system  that can take out  our aircraft carriers.   That’s new.   They’ve developed multi-megaton weapons that have mobile bases.  That’s new.  We are inferior, now,  in both size and capability to defend.

The Obama-Clintons have reduced our military as well as any enemy could have.

Not since the Soviet era under such as Lenin,  Stalin,  Khrushchev — also Marxists! — have so many good men disappeared.

Our experienced military leaders have been purged in one of the most blatantly political attacks on our military ever seen.   Have you ever read the long list of names of generals and admirals,  right on down through the leadership ranks –  gone.    Who accepts this as normal?       Now our young fighting men must undergo  sensitivity training;  they must be “inclusive”  to some very un-manly groups  . . . ;   they practice wearing RED high heels to learn what it’s like to be a “woman.”

Our good men are being used to fight a globalist “war” in the Middle East.  The fighting men tell us they could win this “war”  within a couple months – if the Obama-Clinton  directives would  let them.

And extraordinary missiles are pointed at us,  at the ready.    Plans are being drawn up, waiting for the right moment.     There is more than one nation that would like to have a piece of us,  while we are constructing that imaginary,  paperdoll world delivered to  us by our entertainment-news media.

Meanwhile,  the real world still exists.

Half of Americans plan to vote for a media-fabricated  person who “loathes the military”  and is richly supported by the Globalists who wish us to be global citizens first,  rather than  Americans

And such an insult!      This is right during the week we that honor our past veterans who preserved our right to vote!

Election 2016:     America or not.

We have   well-meaning  enemies without and within.






November 6, 2016

Anyone remember the reading program in schools called:  SQRRR?      (Or  SQ3R, as we called it in the classroom.)


You’re given a short passage to read and use the method:  Survey,  Question,  Read,  Review,  Recite.      Then you try to pass a little quiz on what you just read.    Next time you’re given a little more difficult passage to read,  and so you can advance.

The goal is to increase not only reading comprehension,  but also reading speed.

Actually,  it’s a pretty good method,  and I became more aware of speed and comprehension all through my adult life.

I got to be a pretty fast reader  but  “numbers” don’t really matter because not all books are meant to be read “fast.”    But just in the past few days I speed-read right through a 350-page  space opera   —    really exciting SciFi action-adventure unlikely-hero advanced physics interstellar save-the-earth from super races that don’t really care about us type of book.  With an amusing and supercilious,  or silly,   AI  created by the  mysterious Elders whom nobody knows about anymore . . .

Well, the book was really fun.    Sucked it right down!

So . . .

According to news reports. . .

Apparently,   Chief FBI Director  James Comey   can read a LOT faster than I do!    As a matter of fact,  in the last few days he has apparently read and considered  650,000   newly discovered emails written by  R.oyal  C.lintoness and  Assorted Comrades.   In just a few days.

He must have read them.  because he was able to conclude,   once again,  that there is “nothing new here.”*   In 650,000 newly released emails,  he knows there is “nothing new.”      No indictments needed.    (The entertainment-news media will have fun with this.)

We are told that the whole system protects her.

Which leaves us:  unprotected.

Election 2016:   Elect the Protected!!!     (Or not.)



.*  Or maybe someone helped him with his “reading comprehension.”


3. STEAM KETTLE DAYS- Playing With Paper Dolls

November 6, 2016

(This post is for my personal archives so I remember what a near miss we had in 2016.)

If you get your information from television,  what I call the entertainment-news media, they are giving you paperdolls to play with.


You get a male paperdoll and a female paperdoll.    And the television tells you one of them is bad and the other is good;     and the paperdolls have friends too,  and then you get to fight and argue about the paperdolls.  And then you’re supposed to take a vote and see which one is most popular.

That’s all we need to know.

But  –  NEITHER  of the paperdolls are reality.      I’m going to take it easy in this post.    I’m just going to list some recent headlines . . .  maybe just for one of the “paperdolls.”   (The “good” paperdoll;   not the one they made up bad stories about.)

“Barney Frank Confirms:   There  is no Congressional oversight on the Clinton Cash uranium deal.”   (That’s where we no longer own 20 %  of our own uranium deposits.   The Poor Sick Lady  SOLD  our uranium to RUSSIA   for lots and lots of money.  Oh,  I don’t mean America got the money.)

The New York Times newspaper says that “the Clinton Money Machine is a problem”;  and we can’t find out who all donated $20,000,000  to Mrs. Clinton for the uranium.

“Clinton Corruption  Unprecedented.”       Well, unless we really are a banana republic,  rules by corrupt,  lawless, and greedy leaders.   There’s a precedent.

“New York Times and Washington Post in agreement:   Clinton Cash a Real Scandal”

(I’m leaving out the names)  “…sexy, N-word,  F-bomb laced language ”  supports Hillary Clinton.     Well, according to what’s been revealed,  Hillary regularly uses that kind of language.  Probably doesn’t offend her.

“Obama suggests illegal alien voter fraud WILL BE IGNORED.”     (Oh, wait,   that’s another paperdoll.)   But it’s still OUR election.     ( Can YOU walk into France and demand to vote in their election?    Can you make Germany give you a ballot in their elections?    England?   Switzerland?  Will Italy let you vote in their national elections?)

“Former Congressman says:   Clintons Practiced ORGANIZED  CRIME at the Highest Level of our Government.”

Obamacare Victims Revolt:  “We Don’t Have That Kind of Money.”      (And we know which paperdoll threatens to continue this unaffordable    health control law.)

“Hillary hid  a   $1,00,000,000   gift  from Qatar.”      Oops.   How’d that happen?

(Someone from the Bernie side:  Clintons are trapped in a world of the Elite;  lost grip on the  average American.

Sheeesh!      I’m still reading headlines.  WHY do her supporters have to set trucks on fire and trash the campaign offices of Trump?  And shout obscenities  at Americans?     I was listening to a man on the radio last night who said  he had a nice day off from work and decided to obtain some Trump signs,  place them in his front yard;  went out to his back yard to grill some hamburgers —  checked on his signs.    AND THEY HAD ALREADY BEEN STOLEN!    

Remember  the homeless women they attacked?

People want to vote to put these kind of people  in charge of the rest of us?    They sound like “real winners.”

Still reading various news sources . .  .  (This isn’t what we’re told about our paperdolls.)

Back to paperdolls:   “Hillary told her maid to fax and to print out classified information.”  Well,   I don’t  have a maid.  Maybe they’re given Top Secret Clearance too.

Hmmmm . . .  “People hired for $1,500 to disrupt Trump rallies”   and . . . etc., etc.

Oh,  the man who disrupted the Trump rally in Reno NV?    Listed in Wikileaks with ties to  the Clinton camp.        No surprise there.    Just who yelled “Gun!!”  in a crowded room?    Austyn Crites?


“Chelsea used charity money for her wedding and honeymoon.”   Well, another generation of this.

“FBI reveals its Pay-For-Play corruption investigation.” R.oyal  C.lintoness receives  many millions in donations from Wall Street,  the biggest banks,  (remember her sudden trip to Switzerland to talk with UBS officials?),  and the big corporations,  including  Big Pharmaceuticals.      The ones who want some president to make  mandatory vaccinations the Law of the Land.    The Law of the New Land, I guess.

A message from a foreign newspaper:  “To America,  on its Eve of Destruction.”

“Hillary’s  Attack Ads”   Unfair and untrue.”     (Oh,  that’s another foreign newspaper.)

They talk about the “trail of dead bodies”   . . . .

“A  vote for Hillary is a vote for islamic terrorism.”     Well, we know the invasion of our country is occurring and Hillary promises to increase this by 550% , as she said –  if she can do the math after what she says in her speeches.

Let’s see,   unstopped immigration from third world countries gives us . . .  drug-resistant TB,  cholera,  blah, blah, blah . . .   and:   The ever increasing  “Polio-Like Flu”  also known as  entero-68,  or something like that,  never before seen in our country but well known to the south of us . .  .     Your child has a little cold,  and then starts losing control over his arms and legs . . .  paralysis sets in . . .   sometimes death.

Oh,  this gets embarrassing.   America can’t even protect itself from the Clinton Corruption and Crime Clan . . .

Paperdolls.      No thinking,  just listing.    I’m putting my paperdolls down now;    there’s so much more,  but it’s making me tired.   Tired and wary of all this.    Next posts will be shorter!

Election  2016:   “Our Near Miss”    

We play with Paperdolls   versus   we learn about   Real People.


Repeat:    ELECTION  20126:    OUR NEAR MISS





4 – STEAMING KETTLE – “It Takes A Village To . . .”

November 5, 2016



We’re supposed to think of this kind of village.     Not war-torn villages devastated by Islamic armies.      Just normal happy villages.   I’ve actually never met an African,  in my  “many”  decades of living, who was fundamentally unhappy.   In fact,  their inner happiness and optimism is infectious,  and I’ve always afterwards questioned my own  deep,  dark, doomy   Scandinavian thinking.    After all, we have six months of brooding winter darkness in our blood!

African village children are like happy children,    secure in being loved and cherished.   They have been raised by their very own family,  near their extended family,  their friends and neighbors,  all who love them.  Of course that’s a “stereotype,”  but it’s one that’s seen often enough.

But when a globally-minded Leftist tells you about  “village,”  they mean the  whole world,   the whole world population of numbers, vast numbers,  divided into  manageable demographic  groupings  (NOT families),  and all controlled into a  state of peace by an elite group of Rulers who know it all.

“Peace.”     As in no unrest.    No push-back against a loss of freedom. No complaining against the Rulers.

This is the World Village that the Leftists,  Progressives, The Clinton Crime Clan,  the new   Democrats,  Global Socialists,  whatever they can  call themselves —  it’s the World Village that they have in mind.

The  Village will raise your children,  by the command of the Rulers.    The Village will train your children into the right attitudes.  The Village will train your child into new global ways.

(Just  one example):    James Paul Warburg.   1950 –  We shall have World Government, whether or not we like it. The only question is whether World Government will be achieved by conquest or consent.

Better look him up.   He is the one who said that thoughts of national sovereignty and national patriotism  must be removed from our children by “education,”  and the ideals of global governance entrained into them.   This is the intent behind  groups like UNESCO.


Better look him up.   He’s one of the influences behind  the arrogance of our Rulers who tell us that “parental rights end at the school yard.”      That the medical industry must dumb down our children with series of substances injected into them at regular intervals.   That our textbooks must be purged of religion,  nationalism,  American  history,   individualism,  self-reliance,    wholesome stories that build good character.

Better look into those textbooks your children are struggling to read.

Warburg is one of hundreds,  thousands,  of effectively influential people who assist that World  Village to take control of the raising of your own children. R.oyal  C.lintoness,  who couldn’t hide her illness again this weekend,   cheerfully declares that It Takes A  Village . . .     She’s so  “for the children.”     But it’s just now coming out what she uses the children  for,  thanks to FBI investigations,  federal  investigations,  the NYPD investigations,  state government investigations,   and whistle-blowers from everywhere.

Clintonesque  words are carefully  and scientifically chosen to give the most positive illusion of meaning.   They stand by the poor.   They stand by the working class.  They stand by the coal miners.   They stand by people who need medical insurance.   They stand by schools for our children.

Makes me so mad that we can’t trust any of their statements.   How can we even have a political discussion when they have different meanings for their words –  and different intentions for our very own country!

Yes,  “It takes a Village to take our children . . .  away.”

Election 2016:        Hang on to your children!   Hang on to your families.    Hang on to your freedoms.

This election will determine our freedoms for many decades to come.      The health and freedom of common,  everyday, normal,  working  families are at stake.




November 4, 2016

No,  I’m not going to go all Shakespeare on you tonight“…something rotten in the state of Denmark … ”  (Marcellus,  in Hamlet.)

It’s Day 5.  That’s just two more 48-hour periods of time  before the election.    Somehow  that gives me comfort.   When it’s over,  I shall purge my computer of the hundreds of stories and pictures evidencing the rotting,  decaying odious stench of thoroughly corrupted people in the top offices of our nation.


I wrote about my shock three weeks ago when I opened my well-stocked freezer and discovered that the cord had been pulled out of the wall plug, probably a couple weeks   before.  It was a physical shock mostly.  The freezer contained something that smelled like a rotting corpse.  Took me many days to clean that up.  The smell is not completely gone from my memory.

Two more 48-hour periods of time.

We kind of know now, don’t we,  after this most recent set of leaks from whistleblowers,  just why the criminal legal proceedings have been advancing in fits and starts.   It is a wrestling match.


Clear-cut evidence,   willing witnesses,   a long list of charges,  a legal system waiting — and then nothing.

The “highest legal authority” in the land says:       No.   Don’t do it.

Okay,  no charges.

Other legal proceedings are ongoing –  hitting roadblocks,  delays,   but the prosecutions of the cases persists.   These are prosecutions going on against corruption within  our very precious and now precarious  American system of   government!  

Corruption to this degree is  against us!

But  evidence continued to pour in.      Even while the entertainment-news media is feeding us handy words to use like  “no intention,”    “no convictions.”   and “it’s all conspiracy,”   more and more words spoken and written by  R.oyal  C.lintoness and her Corrupt Criminal Clan  are being revealed to the public — that  would be “revealed to us  the American citizens,  who don’t want our government leaders sucking wealth and honor away from us.

Then the wrestling match continues:  Oh,  yes,  we have enough evidence now to revisit the case,  as I promised I would,  (James Comey.)   The investigation is back on.


What was that sudden wrestling move applied to our politicized FBI and that couldn’t be overcome by our highly political  Justice  Department?

I think it was this last move  by the New York City Police investigation  against the noted New York resident,   R.oyal  C.lintoness.       What we’ve learned yesterday and today was probably so compelling, and it netted in so many high top-level  federal officials,  by name,   that these people don’t have a counter move  against the NYPD.

A wrestling match that may end  badly for Them;  may end well for us,  the American people.    May.

Because this wrestling match is “above human”   Or,  “above human only.

Here’s that picture  again:


This is  Moloch,  Molech,  Molok,   etc.,  however you want to spell his name.  He is part of the ancient  Ba’al  system of gods which directed so much of the philosophy,  religion,  thought patterns and actions of  past humans.

I’m still a teacher.    I’ve been teaching my present subject for seventeen years now,  (and in another capacity,  the same subject for  “decades”  before).     Believe me,  the teacher learns a lot!     More than once I’ve had cause to observe: “The old gods are coming back.”

Moloch (et al.)  was  served by sacrifices,  human sacrifices,  child sacrifices,  (and not just clandestine airplane trips to “Orgy Island,”   stealing children from Haiti,  etc.,  in the name of “relocating orphans.”

Moloch (above)  was served with  LOUD music and drum beats,  drugs that would alter your “consciousness.”    He was served by  “doing the fertility thing,”  which would be sex, good old-fashioned fornication and adultery;  and sex with men and women,  virgins,  children,   little boys,  little girls,  and animals.  Sex, drugs, and rock n roll.   You wouldn’t have wanted to be around during those times of overt Ba’al worship.

His servants were identified by tattoos,   body piercings, cuttings,  scarrings.     Proud and defiant markings.

I’m talking about history,  right?

Moloch demanded human blood and other body fluids.    Serving him was as low and degrading to human dignity than humans can imagine.     And his influences reverberate down through human history.

Humans have an Enemy that hates us with a savage and murderous hatred.  But we’ve known that for a couple thousand years:   “For we wrestle,  not with flesh and blood,    but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  (Ephesians 6:12)

“Against Moloch and the other Ba’al type gods which have been identified  in our history.”

Wickedness ends in death.

Those of you who  have read some of these latest disclosures about our Rulers in high places,”  know what the wrestling match is all about.

And you know the main problem is stealth.  Stealth!   Stealth!   Stealth!   Accomplished by distraction and misdirection  and darkness.

But the wrestling match is going on, it’s there for us to discover  if we can pierce the darkness and tolerate the stench.

Election 2016:      One of the candidates is NOT involved in these activities.



(I’ll  soon purge my computer of everything that has to do with this election, and I’ll probably delete the last two weeks’  worth of blog postings too;  and depending on who they tell us won the election,  it will be either immediately, or else soon after.)

Purging The Spruce Tunnel  too.

6. STEAM KETTLE DAYS – Avoiding Besmirchment

November 3, 2016

Besmirch  (applied to reputations) :  to sully;  to tarnish;  to smear;  to dirty;  to corrupt

To follow up on the last posting about those who are moving “onward and upward,”  shedding truth and reality along the way,   there are those who step up by stepping on other people —  by  The Politics Of Personal Destruction:   “eliminating” them  or by besmirching reputations or by criminalizing them in some way.

Attorneys.    The White House Travel Agency.    The I.R.S.    The Media.   Congressional Investigations.     DoJ.   DEA.       (et cetera)

I had asked a while ago if  we knew of any department,  bureau,  agency, or organization of our government that has not been corrupted by the activities of  R.oyal C.lintoness Crime and Corruption Clan.

It’s so sad to hear the chaos in the FBI  and the tarnishing of their reputation  once the topmost officials began to act “politically.”        It’s quite possible that even the top people haven’t become politically corrupted so much as politically intimidated, and then came off looking weak and directionless.      That too is activity not worthy of the honorable FBI.

So it was not a surprise to read today that the New York City Police Department is wanting to avoid the appearance of cover-ups and corruption,  and instead of looking the other way when evidence is mounting against Clinton and her Clan,   they have reported that they have evidence to build a case against, and to be able to indict, this group.

They want it to be known that they know what Clinton knows that the public does not know.

You will either hear about this from an  entertainment-news media source – or you won’t, so I’ll just get to the bottom line and copy down some of the active, ongoing investigations they are doing – and where the investigations are leading.

They are leading to an astonishing list of actual charges,  based on evidence,  in the following areas:

    Money laundering
    Child exploitation
    Sex crimes with minors (children)
    Pay to play through Clinton Foundation
    Obstruction of justice
    Other felony crimes

If the highly politicized FBI and the highly political Justice Department does not indict in these areas,  the NYPD says they will file the charges themselves.


There used to be a fond nickname for city cops:  Flatfoots!      It’s because city cops walked the beat, their beat,  they got to know the people in their neighborhood – at the cost of their own feet, which became . .  .  “flat.”     Hard to run after crooks.  Hard to keep walking around all day looking for crimes.   Very hard to do their jobs.

Looks like the NYPD doesn’t want to get caught flatfooted here.


November 3, 2016

I’m sure we all grew up learning the difference between real and fake.

steam-kettle  It makes me SO MAD to hear that about half our country forgets the difference when it comes time to elect a president!

Just steaming, boiling mad,  because so much is at stake, and we can’t afford to have a deceiver in the White House any longer.   And this story involves my personal knowledge.

I grew up in rather poor circumstances –  moneywise.   Our first Chicago home was on Sheridan Avenue, someplace like this neighborhood:


My Dad worked very hard at several jobs, and then a couple years later we moved out to the near-west suburbs.    If you’ve been to The Spruce Tunnel before, you may have read some stories of my childhood growing up at the edge of the Illinois prairie.    The prairie looked out to the West.

I could show you the Des Plaines River  and the forest preserves near my home,  where we sometimes played ,  but  this is also what I lived next to:      (O’Hare Air Force Base)


My school was right off of Irving Park Road.  I lived under where it says  “Proposed Northwest”  Highway.     I rollerskated and bicycled right down Mannheim.    We kids had a ring-side seat to all the wonderful,  ear-splitting jet fighters that roared out of O’Hare Air Base    — just to the West of us.

And when a Delta screamed overhead –


–  we knew we were right at the center of cutting edge technology!

In our area we were mostly  poor kids,  lower middle class,   our dads struggling with one or two jobs,   but  it was a great place to be a child!

Sometimes on Sunday afternoons my Dad would take my Mom and me out for a drive to see the “rich peoples”  houses,   to the East of us.      Big two and three story brick homes with nice green lawns outside.       Some of those lucky children even had Shetland ponies grazing on their lawns!   That was a big fad in those days.

Here’s one of those homes.  Know this one?    –


This is the house where Hillary Rodham grew up.    I was astonished to hear her say a few weeks ago that she”knows what it’s like to be poor”  and she knows how hard her dad worked to stay in the “middle class.”     She didn’t.    And he didn’t.

I know these homes.   And I know about the privileges that come with growing up like this.

Hillary Clinton grew up safe and privileged;  the “hard lessons”  she had to learn were how to fight to get your way up over others who were blocking your ambitions,  how to win over others,  how to move up and up and up in society – and how to use politics as a way up.

She grew up a Republican and was a member of the Young Republicans,   because in those days, the Republicans were the party of business people,  of the rich or soon-to-be rich.

But Saul Alinsky and other communists, socialist,  Leftists,  and marxists were gaining control of the area’s politics.       She switched over to the Left,   identified with people in “poverty”  so she could “help them” – and get their votes –    and became an able and skillful disciple of Saul Alinsky,  who helped her up and out of provincial Chicago politics.

She said No to a job with Alinsky, and moved on out East to expensive colleges,  where the extreme leftist form of Liberalism paved the way for ambitious people.

Onward and upward!     Onward and Upward, the plan goes.   The End justifies the Means.   Develop a Public Persona,  we hear her say,  and keep the Private Persona for where it counts.

Transform America!      The laws don’t apply to  you if you’re doing such “important” work.     She’s a piece of work, all right.

And she really had a beautiful childhood home.

Election 2016:       Fakery versus Reality


November 3, 2016

Well,  it’s Election Day minus 7


Hard to keep that Steam Kettle boiling over at a time like this.      Hey!   Life goes on.  There’s  life apart from election news . . .  and Chicago has just won the World Series.     I’ve spent a little time in Wrigley Field . . .     but  never a  win like this.   ( If you know about the Cubs,  you’ll get the reference to The Goat.   Right now,  he’s history!)

As a matter of fact, Son just texted a pretty interesting comment.   “A few moments ago,  nobody could ever say they saw the Cubs win the World Series.”    A few moments later,  we live in a whole new world:   we are people who can say  WE saw The Cubs Win the World Series.

Just like that –   the World  changes.

But it’s not easy to change our world:

Try try try

      Work hard Work hard Work hard

       Fight Fight Fight

       Hope Hope Hope

And then the moment of proof comes:

You win the World Series.

Or you win the Election.


Or you die and enter Heaven.   

The Church has not forgotten what time of   year it is.     November has begun and we  are directed to remember all those saints in Heaven, designated to be our examples  and helpers, as they’ve died in Christ,   with Christ in them,  and so they remain in communion with us.  (That’s what you say in the Creed.  “…. I believe in the communion of saints ….”

Remember them!    Get to know them!

The very next day we remember all those souls who have died,  “All Souls Day,”   on their way to Heaven,  diamonds in the rough, so to speak,   but within the communion of believers.

And so during all of November it is appropriate to remember the dead,  especially our dead loved ones.      God is outside of Time;  our prayers for them matter no matter “when” we pray.

Our dead loved ones are still loved by us.     They remind us that one day we will be like they are now.      In the blink of an eye, our world will change.

As a matter of fact,  the world we exist in will change from this world . . .   to the next.


The Rose is red: the grass is green
The days are past which I have seen
As you are now so once was I
But as I am now so shall be ye
Prepare for death and follow me.
