As  always, one of my favorite forms of humor is irony — but this ironic issue is decidedly not funny.

In this present-day world culture  we choose and we pay for many self-destructive activities.  (Is that a form of insanity – to disregard self-preservation?)

It was all over the news this week that Toys R Us has declared bankruptcy, after several years of bad economic decisions,   and they will be closing their stores in the US.


All their  store locations will be empty, and possibly, according to the latest,  taken up and occupied by Amazon.  No surprise there.

After all the business and financial analysis they put out for us,  a Toys R Us spokesman finally said the reason they are not taking in as much revenue as they would need to stay open is that they are losing customers.

Who are these customers?   Babies!   Small children!   Young schoolchildren!   (And the grandmas who shop for them!)

Why fewer babies and children?   Guess you can read it yourself:

The decrease of birthrates in countries where we operate could negatively affect our business. Most of our end-customers are newborns and children and, as a result, our revenue are dependent on the birthrates in countries where we operate. In recent years, many countries’ birthrates have dropped or stagnated as their population ages, and education and income levels increase. A continued and significant decline in the number of newborns and children in these countries could have a material adverse effect on our operating results.

Makes some sort of logical sense.

But then there’s this statement  (Note the trickery when they got caught):

Toys R Us formerly donated to Planned Parenthood, which commits more abortions than any other organization in the country. They were thus contributing to killing off their future customers, which means a loss of revenue in addition to life. In 2010, Life Decisions International removed  Toys R Us from a boycott list for supporting Planned Parenthood. However, according to a February 2017 entry from 2ndvote, Toys R Us matches donations to New York City and Minnesota chapters of Susan G. Komen, which gives grants to Planned Parenthood.

Oh, our customers don’t like our support for Planned Parenthood?  Okay.  We’ll “stop,”  And then we see they didn’t,  not really.

The International and Global Forces promoting human depopulation are just too strong.  Maybe it’s time to talk about my trip to the Georgia Guidestones, again.   They’re real;  but no  one dares talk about the reality of their message.

(A rambling, sprawling, catch-up visit with you all):

I sleep with my radio on, of course. 

radio cartoon

  I woke up today  to a radio news report that got me asking “Why?”    But first . . .

I always feel as though I have to “explain” myself when I’m  away from The Spruce Tunnel  for several days.   I don’t, I know.   But I’m making kind of a record — so I  will.

I wrote this SIX days ago!     (Quote:  me)  –

Well, another glitch, another breakdown!     I missed seeing today’s news because my computer monitor had begun strobing out at me in flashes and flutters, and then a few nights ago it blossomed into a lovely shade of light pink in its lower quadrant.

So, FYI,  if you use a monitor,   this is not a good sign, but a pretty good warning of its soon demise.    And today my monitor went BLACK.        (It was weird to have a black screen where I usually see lively colors and videos — and work to do — but it’s okay,  there is  a new monitor on its way, and I transferred an old, old monitor to this  somewhat newer main computer.)

Then Hubbie’s big red van broke down –  and though it’s old,  I’m  happy to maintain it for him now that he’s gone.    The parts didn’t come in  when the shop requested it, so I spent more than a week “in suspension,” so to speak,  waiting to have my household made whole again.

Both problems are taken care of as of last night –



This was not at all enough to keep me out of The Spruce Tunnel.    Instead it was  a series of “difficult”  news coming from my friends and family which affected me deeply and came coincidentally all within a two-week period.    No details here because none of my “friends and family”  should feel as though I can’t bear their . . .  troubles –  but the categories are:   a terminal illness;   a shocking “psychological lapse”;    a mortal danger;    a serious moral “lapse,”  which I suppose is actual “mortal” too, spiritually speaking;  news from someone which resurrected some deep conflicts;   oh . . .  some other things, and all during this time my “entertainment”  was watching all the seasons of a popular gut-wrenching dramatic (soap-opera) series offered by PBS ….

The reason for the umpteen hours of entertainment is this:

knitted more 370

After I got the pattern established I needed something easy to keep my eyes and attention on why I made progress on my sweater.    Usually I can read and study while I knit,  but not with this pattern!   And so I  overlayed all the recent real-life troubles with the near-to-life troubles of  a dying social system,  a dying moral world,   and the constant though natural  departures of   people from one another:


Highclere Castle

   —  the home of the present-day Lord Carnarvon,  whose ancestor was an enthusiastic Egyptologist who financed and took part in many expeditions to Egypt,   thus opening up the knowledge of ancient Egypt with all its wonders and glory to the rest of the world,  including the expedition that discovered  King Tut’s tomb.

This castle was the scene of the Jeeves and Wooster series, as well as the Downton Abbey series, which, as I’ve alluded to,  I saw for the second time these past days.  I was not enthusiastic the first time through, and I missed so much;  I “got it”  this time . . .

Taking too long to get to my radio news?    Well, the tragic collapse of a moral and well-ordered society  (along with its excesses) should acutely inform our emotions as well as our intellect, because an emotion is energy –  and it fuels motivation . . . .

(From the Good Teacher in The Spruce Tunnel:   acknowledge your emotions,  feel them;  you need not give in to them or even show them to others, and never inflict them on others;  but use their energy to  help come to terms with whatever difficulty,  real or imagined,  caused them.    Emotions can feed your very useful imagination, and you and your world can be a better place . . .  Intellect,  emotions,  imaginations are some of the necessary tools given to us by our Creator.)

So filled with all the “energy” of the past two weeks from all the sources,  I heard that the Austin, Texas,  “b.”  (perpetrator of the random explosions that put such fear into the population down there),  was tracked down, shot at, and exploded himself in his car at a motel . . .

Now that he’s dead,  investigators are going to work hard to find his motivation.  Here’s where I asked “Why?”

So we can understand him – and people like him?      So that . . .    “why?” – what will we do, what will we change?   Actually change?

So we can understand “society”  that made him do it?    “Why”   “What do we, as a society, have the will to change?     Because it takes a very strong collective will to get any changes done.

So we can  look for more laws to change or add to our nation?    (Better watch out whose strong “will” is behind change-making.)

So we can make new regulations against bullying victims into criminals?   Bullying is only a symptom of lawlessness  in our society and in our schools.

So we can educate our children better?       I was a teacher in this new education system when we made the changes that we were told were for the better.   My strong opinion on what changes should be made is this:

bulldozing the schools

There is no fixing of a system of education which abuses our children in their growth and development.     We must start again.

When we do find out what may have motivated this criminal activity in Texas,   then what?

The bewilderment and consequent lack of action should point to a cause.  Maybe we’d all have to take a second look,  “watch a second season,”  about our culture.

I think it’s not that we cling to  “our bibles and our guns”  as the Barack Hussein person stated it when he was frustrated that we didn’t go along with all his Progressive ideas.  It’s rather that we are comfortable, we don’t want “discomfort,”  and so we cling to the Status Quo.

Go ahead and find out that Texas man’s motivation.      That what we do – in this present culture.   We give ourselves the illusion of “doing something.”

But as far as the state of our culture goes,   (our society, our education, our politics),   when a train derails,  we must go back to the point of derailment, in order to find our way forward.

train de

Cultural destruction.


There is much to bear in this “modern”  world.

Because of the latest ad campaign from Madison Avenue on  this beautiful island  —


—  I am reminded that I choose today to NOT be a “woman”!

At least not this kind!


I’m not celebrating the Leftist, Global Socialist, Agenda-Driven Exclusive International Women’s Day.

And neither are these women:



And neither are the 22 MILLION women who were chopped to pieces,  swirled around by a vacuum extractor until they died,   or painfully burned to death by a strong saline solution  — before they got a chance to get out of the womb.  (Let’s deal in facts.) —



But I do respectfully remind the international women to remember these,  their sisters.

They, and I, are not like you.


Some of us have a higher calling –  our homes!

hgher calling


Wife.  Mother.   Homemaker.   Helper.  Counselor.    Wise and Intelligent family manager.    Maker of refinement and beauty in the home.  

And religious anchor of the family:

relig anchor

Without family,  society cannot hold together.







February 18, 2018

Reflections –  reflections related to the origins of this past week’s tragedy in Florida – (owtowing).

Any  way you slice and dice it,  it is a grave matter to not attend church on a Sunday.

10 com

But – it’s easy!    When we Americans go to church,  we can be 98% sure that we won’t be massacred while in church.   We can be 95% sure we won’t be accosted by angry demonstrators as we leave our churches.     (We can be 10% sure that we won’t hear ridicule and insults heaped upon us by the current “culture” around us.)

Not so in other areas of the world –  which are included in the word “universal” –  the name given to our church way back at the end of the first century.    (Greek word for universal =  “Catholic.”)    All humans are included, equally, and warmly.

Not so elsewhere.    Let’s start a tour   with India  –

Christianis in India

Christians are not protected in India.  They are burnt, beaten, killed;  their houses and churches are destroyed . . . (by Mos l ems and by “peace”-loving Ghandi-type Hindus) .


Further East:

Chinese Requires Church

And few are “sanctioned” —

Chinese Church BEING Wrecked

That photo shows the new policy towards churches in China, many buildings are currently being razed.


Somewhat west of India

christians killed


And south of India  —

nigerian church attacked

Here is a still-shot from a video I was going to post last Sunday –  because every Sunday there is news of yet more attacks on Christians as they worship, somewhere in the world, and I want to make these poor victims known to the world.  We want to  ‘aid”  victims, don’t we?

Maybe only prayer  is possible ,  as this Nigerian man knows —

Nigerian in church

And this Nigerian woman —

nigerian woman

It is the norm for a human to want to worship God.   It is normal to pay homage to one’s Creator, absent generations-long indoctrination to the contrary.    It is normal among humans to seek Truth.

In European-derived nations, indoctrination seems to be the weapon of choice.  However, in Africa last Sunday,  and in other parts of the world,  the machete seems to be a common weapon of choice.

nigerian machete

This is a still-shot from a video shown a few days ago of armed men running through Christian villages and farms,  destroying livestock,  buildings,  and sometimes human lives.

Things seem to be getting worse for Christians in this world in this present time.  (It’s not a surprise that it will happen;  it’s just a surprise that it actually is happening, in front of our eyes.)   What will be done about violence against Christians?

Nothing, really.   The governments will do nothing effective.  “Missionary groups” with money from wealthier nations will not make it safer for Christians.   Public opinion in America will continue to be oblivious.

And this is where the LL Bean company comes in.     LL Bean is a good family owned company that has been selling quality clothes and things for 91 years.   I love their styles!  If I were a man,  I would get my entire wardrobe from them!

ll bean slippers

Here is a pair of slippers that I gave to my daughter.   They didn’t fit,  so we exchanged them with LL Bean’s generous and easy exchange policy,  (I didn’t get her the cat;  I had  gotten her a bear, one half on each slipper.   They didn’t have a bear in her size, so I wanted to get her a moose –  they live in the High Sierras, after all –  but she  chose instead a  whimsical goofy-looking frog.   It’s cute.)

This morning on the radio, on some financial advice program that happened to be on when I woke up,  I heard them say that LL Bean is now changing their 91-year old exchange policy;  and it’s basically, bottom line, due to the highly immoral conditions pervasive in our society.   You can still exchange things, but only for one year after purchase, and with proof of purchase,  and with a stated reason.  Still generous,  but no longer trusting and generous.

Can’t be, any longer.   Everywhere,  from highest to lowest activities,  we are being compliant to Falling Values.      We kowtow.

Something as major as going to church,  something  as  trivial as buying clothes from a 91 year old family owned business,   something as common as going to school and expecting to be safe,  and everywhere  in between,  Christian values which a society could count on are being . . .  well, devalued.

Let’s look at the good:

Nothing is so  joyous as an African man at prayer!   Nothing is so philosophically calm and certain as an Indian at worship.   Nothing is so motivated as a Western man coming out of Mass.       

And nothing is so sweet as a Chinese man  adoring Emmanuel,  God With Us,    God Who Became Human for us.

Chinese Madonna Chinese


And that brings me to KOWTOW   –

           a word UNIVERSAL in its own meaning.

February 18, 2018


A small sad  Rant tonight:

If you follow one avenue of analysis,  you will find the motto:  “Get the children first.” Never mind the parents,  get the children – and you will have your revolution.


Do you ever go around the Internet and choose a little city at random and read their local news?   If you have time,  it can reveal some interesting (national) trends.

In our little area, here in the Far North, in the middle of Fly-Over country,   in a nearby small town,   a day after the school shooting in Florida,  the school of this small town was closed down for two days –  after receiving a “shooting” threat.

If you didn’t make it “here” to our local news – no reason you should have –  maybe you saw this in the national news, another “interesting” trend:


It was slipped under the door of the principal’s office in a school near Parkland, Florida, this past week.

I can’t show the rest of the note – there’s so much obscene and foul language in it.

It was written by an eleven year old girl – who was apparently not protected from the hysterical and actually hateful news reporting of this past week.   And she was apparently not parented this week.   What she heard was not put into any  perspective proper to an eleven year old girl.     

Her mind is at the mercy of the entertainment-news media and of the Revolutionary Radical-Leftist influences promoted by our government (public)  schools.     Her mind and her emotions.    In a culture which has lost its capacity to rear its young, we seem to think children can raise themselves, according to any current trends.

A few hundred years ago a major prophecy was given to the Church – concerning not just the future, but specifically the 20th century, and the “interesting” trends that will begin in that most dark of all human centuries.   One of the predictions was that the children of that century will be almost totally corrupted.

There will be no more innocence among children.

When this prophecy was discovered in the 1800s,   more than a couple hundred years after it was written,  that statement alone was too startling to even believe.   Children have always been protected,  parented,   taught how to become human beings, trained in the highest values of civilization.  It was inconceivable that a whole century would somehow abandon their children to the point that generations of children could become so degraded.

Marx,  Lenin,  Stalin,  “Rules for Radicals,”  Communist writings —  socialist educators like Dr. John Dewey (who almost single-handedly corrupted American schools –  I witnessed this transformation when I taught in public schools) — all these  say the same thing:  “Give me the children . . .”



I had intended to write about the Olympics tonight.

Like many Americans, I have a long history of watching the Olympics,  cheering for our own athletes,   being inspired by their skill and dedication.    When I was a teenager,  I watched the winter Olympics and then went out and built my own ski jump in the surrounding forest.  After school each day I practiced on that ski jump –  not sure I’d have the courage to jump that far and that high today,  but it gave me a tiny taste of the life of those Olympic athletes.     Striving to be better;  striving for excellence.

I cannot write about the Olympics this year.   (“Good parenting”  taught me “If you can’t say something nice about someone, don’t say anything at all.”     Hah!)

Each night, and several times each night,  deviant behavior is showcased, promoted, and at the very least spoken of casually.

The picture of the American team members that the entertainment-news media showed to us was beyond youthful exuberance and joy.  This year’s American athletes were photographed being shamefully immature, juvenile,  arrogant, and appeared to feel they were entitled to all the medals  which were sure to come to them (and which most didn’t get).    They were therefore  like children:   vulnerable  to adulation and willingly complicit in promoting anti-American sentiments, anti-American values,  anti-family behavior.

(Did you hear the athletes of any other nation bad-mouthing their own nations or presidents or vice-presidents?   Did any other country’s announcers continually point out deviant behavior of their athletes?  )

So.    Yes, Mom.  Yes, Grandma:    I won’t say anything at all about individual athletes.   I’ll  just have more free time now away from the television.

But I feel rather sad for the children of our country.

We gave them away . . . .


(For those of you trained in marxist thinking where there are no absolutes –  this is not an “absolute”  100% statement.  Of course it isn’t.    But it takes only one eleven year old girl without moral training to make life very unpleasant for our society.)


Reclaiming America?     Restoring American values?

There can be push-back.    Maybe there could be enough push-back.

But there won’t be.   I’ll write about that in the next post.


November 6, 2017

(Super talkative, unrestrained-in-the-morning  thoughts.  Just skip down to the two quote boxes to get the gist.)



It’s a matter of politics to try to keep a civil society stable, beneficial, correcting wrongs, making improvements; protecting against those movements which ultimately tear at families and break down a civil society. I do respect people who find politics their calling for these reasons.

Many work towards, those ends; but increasingly more have an agenda that works against those good ends.  Senator Rand Paul, for instance who is recovering today from five broken ribs because because many people in this country care not about their country’s good, but about their own agenda, country be damned; and that makes them strident, arrogant, and sometimes violent.    I don’t know about each of Senator Paul’s ideas, but I know his is a life dedicated to improving our nation.

if I am ever asked whether I am “Right” or “Left” or “Liberal” or “Conservative,”   I would probably groan (inaudibly) and frown, and look all thoughtful; and after a moment maybe my reply would be a disappointed:    “Ohhhh,  do you really want to go back to the French Revolution? Do you really want to use those archaic categories? They have become a cheap shot; lazy thinking obscuring today’s realities.”

 fr revSitting on the left and sitting on the right

Leftistl/Democrat?   Right/Republican?  These have no meaning now after the  dialectic process has translated those two terms into: Socialist (Democrat) on one side  and Socialist Lite (Republican) on the other, both political parties drawing people into worldwide Global Socialism/Communism which, whatever label you give it, simply means a totalitarian control of the whole world.

(See Nimrod)  (Or see Napoleon, who thought he could do it.)     (Or see Hitler, who was sure he could do it.) .

Maybe you’d want to more accurately ask if I am a Gramsci-ite Progressive or if I am  an Independent political thinker:   pragmatic and people-oriented, rather than State-oriented. Our American Constitution gave us a shot at this: independent and uniquely created individual people, free to be creative and hard-working in the pursuit of their own choices in this world and free to walk humbly before God in preparation for their journey to the next world.

My favorite song? “Don’t Fence Me In.”

Nearly all Young People have never even read the book 1984, nor studied it to understand the warnings therein.     Not that their Leftist schools and universities would want these young people to ever, EVER understand books like 1984 and Homage to Catalonia     That would be so  . . .  so  . . .   un-Orwellian.    Thinking about Orwell’s writing would require independent thinking and the “hard work”  of intellectual analysis.

I was reading a foreign newspaper about the recent Texas church shooting, and I also read down into the Comment Box. Certain people could not understand why Americans could not just “all come together as a country and stop bickering about what we should do next. “Can’t we all get along?” (Teddy bears and flowers . . . and smile more.)   Why do we have to debate every issue?   Isn’t that . . . “divisive”?   Shouldn’t we all be united under one common( political) goal?

Then I saw this comment by some who calls himself “No One In  Particular,”  but he had a great comment on those who would restrict free and independent debate:

We are United by the Document on which this country was founded, the United States Constitution. We are fully allowed, and even encouraged, to disagree. (Amendment 1) We are also allowed, as in not prohibited from, ownership of firearms. (Amendment 2) This individual was not supposed to be able to purchase a firearm as he was disqualified from such by due process (Read: court of law). The fact that he made that purchase, through a Sporting Good Store, mind you, is an oversight that should not have happened. The squabbling that happens in the U.S. is 100% okay. If it truly bothers you, ignore it and never “pop across the pond,: sir.


There can be no debating if people are so willing to jump up and say you shouldn’t say what you want to say, that’s not “correct”!   In this politically-charged world it’s upsetting to the hypnotic dream state created by the Leftist agenda.   It’s not politically correct.

I hope we begin to look at the quality of public discourse in this whole nation. I hope those independent thinkers who have something of value to say will speak out against the suppression of public discourse. A poll recently proclaimed its findings: More than half the people in this country do not speak out because they are afraid of the consequences.

Poll: 71% of Americans Say Political Correctness Has Silenced Discussions Society Needs to Have, 58% Have Political Views They’re Afraid to Share  (from Cato . . org Oct. 31, 2017)


Yeah, well they killed Socrates for it too. I’d hoped we are beyond that.
“Do not go gentle into that good . . .” etc. etc.


November 3, 2017

(Random thoughts from The Spruce Tunnel)

Walking through a parking lot this afternoon,  this caught my eye:

Bummper Sticker

Bumper Sticker “art” —

The bumper sticker reminded me that I live in a university town.  Well, I live out here where the professors live,  the students mostly live in the town contiguous with us, but we see a lot of them in our stores.

So . . .  cute bumper sticker, “eh” ?      E   A  R  T    H       

Take out the art, you take out the beauty.  Or maybe the other way around – take out the beauty and there is no real art.     Seeing beauty is an art,  and “poetics”  is what we humans try to do to capture the beauty,  hold it still before our eyes.

Random thoughts and pathways:

But it made me think of all the artists and artist-wannabees around here:   the artistes.  Universities attract them.    Universities and university people live right in the middle of an ordinary town.    Sometimes the two populations don’t understand each other –  with amusing or newsworthy consequences.   This university town is known for throwing couches out  windows and setting them on fire in the streets below — usually when we win a big football game.  Or when we lose.


The police come,  but not until several students have had the opportunity to jump through the fire . . . .   Some people just don’t get it.

Town and Gown

But there has always been clashes and sometimes violence between the university population and the town population.   In the Middle Ages,  sometimes groups of students took their swords to school to fight with other groups of students or with groups of townspeople.     Imagine caring that much about what a professor teaches you that you want to defend the issue or destroy the issue with your sword!

(Not an easy thing to do!   Do you know how heavy a real sword is?   No women students in the 13th century at a public university.   They couldn’t wield a sword anyway.)

Twenty Towns in America  —

Riots and clashes planned for Saturday, November 4, in twenty towns and cities across America have nothing to do with intellectual issues, and not even with the intellect itself.    The International Communist-backed movement called Antifa will try to incite riots this  weekend.   It’s what they do.    It’s what they’re paid to do.   This is the weekend in 1917 that the Leftist Bolsheviks took over the major cities of Russia in a coordinated attack.   Turned Russia into the Soviet Union. Eventually 65,000,000 dead.

I don’t think that will happen this weekend, 2017.    The Antifa people are armed with slogans but not with strong intellects that could drive them through to the “end”  that they are told to shout about.


It will be interesting to see what today’s feeble-minded revolutionary-wannabees will accomplish.

Much, eventually, if there is no pushback.     But not tomorrow.





October 26, 2017

Well, the important posting is the last post,  but this goes along with it in a more minor and particular way.

This man:


A White Supremacist

. . .  about a hundred miles from  me . . .

. . .  on a liberal (Leftist) university campus . . .

. . . motivated by the Marxist desire to divide our country . . .

. . .  scared the heck out of liberal snowflake students . . .

. . . by . . .

. . .  making graffiti  on various campus buildings  . . .   in large letters:


Only in large black letters, I think.

(His is one of many such incidents recently all over America.)

For those of you who don’t know, my foreign readers perhaps,  the organization represented by these letters was begun by American Democrats to intimidate both Catholics and what we today call Black people.        They used to be a somewhat large and murderous influence in a few areas of our country.

One very famous senator, Senator Byrd (a Democrat),  was the “grand wizard” or whatever of this organization.   Mrs.  Bill Clinton  praises him and claims him as her mentor  (in a video you can still see).

Ironically,  this organization has now taken on Mythic Proportions as the Democrats themselves call their opponents by this name  even as membership in this almost nonentity is vanishingly small.

All it takes is a television camera to make it seem influential.

And a menace . . .

. . .  to young, uneducated college students . . .

. . . who are the Useful Idiots doing the legwork of dividing our nation.


(As a former teacher):   It’s all  in the education, my dear  readers.     Misguided education.   Erroneous education.   Agenda-driven education.  Fake Education.

Snowflakes could very easily have turned out to be men and women of courage and principle,  happy and self-fulfilled.

Real education is fun and interesting – and useful.

We Won!

f a football

We won our homecoming game today. I’m . . . happy.    I’m not ecstatic or excited as in years past, whenever we could win a homecoming game.  I’m just feeling kinda glad.

Eric Gordon, Johnathan Strayhorn, Kyle Selden

In the whole world of Football, though, it’s been a big loss this year.

That world has been co-opted by the loud-mouthed bullying globalists with their incessant theme that “white men are bigots”; America is a racist nation”; you have to feel ashamed of who you are”!

f not playing

NOT playing football


Well, each nation has received its particular “scolding.” If you don’t like the forced migration of third world people into your country, why . . .why . . . why,  you’re Xenophobic!!!!   And racist.   And bigoted.     And – let’s throw other terms in here. You’re “fa scis ts”! You’re” n a zis” (Any other bad terms out there? Well, you’re that too!)

(These name-calling bullies remind me of the eight-year-old girls on the playground that I saw who form cliques and then proceed to bully and shame anyone not in their clique!)

I listen to foreign news services sometimes. I have heard the Public Service Announcements, those little smarmy blurbs that are supposed to change your attitude toward something.    (Stop causing forest fires; stop making poor children go hungry; stop making animals die . . .)    I could give lots of examples, but here’s a recent one I keep hearing that makes me very angry.    It usually ends with the statement:    “And the white race is inherently racist and oppressive.”


f loud tv

Is this historically accurate – or is this what people are being told is history?   I know really nice, kind people who really truly believe this is true about themselves. No matter how much evidence from history you can give them,*  (see Useful Knowledge below)   deep down they have been made to believe that the White race is guilty, guilty, guilty.

I don’t know, maybe there is some odd sort of comfort in feeling guilty. because, you know, then someone is going to come in and take control of this whole mess. Feeling guilty seems to be just an effective way of backing out of life, waiting for the angry globalists to fix things. In any way.


f dam collapse

The dam collapses

Now the dam has broken, the White race is damned, and all this flood of accusations have overwhelmed the NFL and anything associated with it.  I don’t get my entertainment from watching mud-slinging against America.

f muddy waters


Tomorrow.  Sunday.  Football day.  . .   will be a free day of rest and reflection, a walk in the Spruce Tunnel to take some pictures, some time spent privately with my God . . . and lots of time to do it all!

A “big loss” can have advantages – at least until the globalists enact laws their against our innocent people.

Unless we do something . . .   unless we try to do something,  it will soon be a time of great persecution.



Useful knowledge for you  —  History’s evidence on the White Race:

In 1863  America, a largely White nation, declared an end to slavery:

f emanc proc


Before that,  England, a largely White nation, declared an end to slavery:

And long before that the Catholic Church, universal in its racial composition  though administered  largely by Italians,  proclaimed in at least three papal Bulls that slavery is wrong, unacceptable;    and “indigenous” people were to be respected and not used for slavery.

(Got a problem with that?    Good Catholics, actual Catholics,  obeyed;   and some became saints as they gave their life-work to the succor and  freeing of slaves.   Don ‘t judge the Church by its disobedient and very sinful “members.”   That’s just a cheap shot.)  

In the Twentieth Century,  the Republican Party,  largely WHITE people in government, fought hard against the Leftists  (the Democrats in this country)  —  fought hard to enact Civil Rights laws.

These are mostly Republican  (white males)  who are watching a very reluctant President Johnson sign in to law the Civil Rights laws.

Ironically,  it’s the heirs of this same Democrat Party that is joining the anti-American globalists in calling Americans “racists.”

This is a tactic of Cultural Marxism:  make a nation feel guilty for its past.  Even if the guilt rests on false premises.





October 12, 2017


Remember:     “Implementation follows Victory.”


I had an intense and vivid memory this morning as I was warming up my breakfast, such as it was:


In my mind, I was back on the Illinois prairie,  about eleven years old,   pretty much what they called a “tomboy”  — and reading a book,  up a tree.

It was a magnificent tree!

big tree

Something  like that, only more branches..   On those hot summer days I was usually up in one of the higher branches that became a big chaise lounge for me.    Sometimes I didn’t even read,  just put my book down and absorbed the feel of nature,  the steady sounds of the bugs and the bees and the locusts.    Butterflies came sometimes if I weren’t too high.

gnarly limbs

Occasionally my friends came too, when their mothers released them from their chores.  My mother worked in the city;  I was an “only” child,  so I was free all day.  Free as a bird!   (As long as I didn’t break any rules,  I could do whatever I wanted to do.  Such freedom!)

Maybe because I was alone a lot I always wanted to join the Girl Scouts*.

GS Troop

So, when I woke up this morning,  today the radio was still on from the night before , and I heard about “Scouting.”      The poor Boy Scouts who seem to have, in the past few years, lost their way as a group to teach boys how to grow into Christian manhood, (which was their original purpose),  have announced that they are going to start accepting girls into their boys’ club.

(“Implementation follows victory.”)

Now, it’s clear that the idea of Christian manhood as a goal for our American boys is an idea that is mocked and ridiculed.     Any teenage boy want to grow up to be a good Christian gentleman?   He would be publicly disparaged and socially isolated –  and accused of all the  common Marxist “sins.”

Cultural Marxism poster 150I’m sure most everyone has noticed, by now, that the Extreme Leftists,  the socialists,  whatever you want to call them,  have completed their Marxist Cultural Revolution in American Society — as it is presented to us by the entertainment-news media.

They haven ‘t won the hearts and minds (and commonsense) of the American people, but there seems to be nowhere that the Cultural Marxists have not infiltrated and taken control.

So the controversy engendered by this latest Scouting announcement is a clear one.  Yes or No.   Black or White.   Boy or Girl.

(“Implementation follows victory.”)

Another Yes or No news item this morning:  a nearby school district is debating whether to have transgendered bathroom in the whole school district. Mostly boys entering girls bathroom and locker rooms and showers.  They are implementing the false idea of “gender neutrality.”
The principles of Marxist social engineering has claimed the word “gender,”  a grammatical term,  not a scientific term,  for itself and uses “gender”  to hammer at human reality.    Those who don’t know the difference between “sex” and “gender”  are confused — and easily persuaded because they don’t want to be accused of being . . .   not nice.   Or attracting attention.   Or getting in trouble.  Or something.

Those involved in implementation the social changes that are being engineered will win, I think.   The (few) voices from the Left are mean and strident, domineering and bullying.

Divide and conquer.    Make those who disagree with you seem   unreasonable and weak in their protestations.      Then take away their power —

Another news item this morning illustrating the loss of power and control for ordinary American citizens:      One of our state senators has announced he’s going to run for governor at the next election.   Why?  Because he disagrees with the policies of the Leftist, Progressive leaders of his party, who have just shut him down:  in the senate that means he was taken off of all his committees and now has a very weak and unheard voice in future debates.   The bad thing is,  the people who elected this man agree with him and sent him to our state legislature in order to implement these ideas.

But they have no victory – so they can have no implementation.  No voice.

It’s what politics has become.   “Agree with me or you don’t get a voice.”     It’s called the Swamp.   And it may be going on in your state legislature too.

Slowly but very surely our nation has been steered to the Far Left in its public manifestations.    Politics,  economics,  the astounding size of the  flow of money,  all our information and entertainment,  unprosecuted lawless behavior,  criminal enterprises,  all  those who permit our participation in social media,  and everything that allows our private choices and conduct — all has been effectively steered to the Far Left.

(“Implementation follows victory.”)

But, again,  the hearts and minds of most ordinary citizens are not there, (yet).    They are uncomfortable after daily doses of the media.   The implementation of total Leftist control is not quite complete.

They are walking around, almost dazed,  saying:  I don’t know any people like that!  I don’t know any  people who act like that!    I don’t know any people who think like that!   Not in real, everyday life.    Not among my friends and acquaintances.

Except for those few who are imitating what they see on the entertainment-news media, and who  don’t want to be thought of as . . .  what accusations do the Leftists use . . .     “Unkind.”   “Selfish.”   “Prejudiced.”   “Bigoted.”  “Homophobic.”    “Racist.”   “Sexist.”     The false accusations seem endless,  like fighting off buckshot from a shotgun aimed at you.

Reality and commonsense peppered by a thousand holes.

And it wears a person down.

(“Implementation follows victory.”)



    Butterflies are free!   Humans should be too!




. *   I never could join the Brownies or the Girl Scouts.   In my very large school there were just not enough leaders available.   However, as an adult I became a Brownie and then, for a while, a Girl Scout leader.    I have a personal interest in the idea of Scouting –  and I’ve been watching its developments.

       I know for a fact that the “excuses”  being presented for why girls should enter the Boy Scouts are just not true.   Just ask this “tomboy” Girl Scout leader!

The New Donner Memorial Experience:   Gone   Gone   Gone

Okay,  I hope you enjoyed “Lake Life”  and  “Mountain Life,”  because I have to get a little negative here.   Yes,  there was fun,  lots of activities,  lots of good food,  and lots and lots of really nice people —  but at the same time there were a lot of censorship and restrictions on the way you can think.

In fact – maybe the motto was:  Stay active;  don’t think.

Or:  Stay active;  we’ll tell you what to think.

As I traveled west,  I was pretty miffed about all the signs in the zoos that I visited that explained not what animal I was seeing or where they came from,  but   signs that  just gave the name, followed by    “And humans  are destroying this animal’s habitat.”

The World War One Museum conclusion?   “Humans who love their country –  Nationalism –  cause wars.”

The dinosaur museum?    “Humans are causing another extinction event  today. . .”

One day during my vacation,  when everyone was busy,  I decided to re-visit the Donner Party Memorial.  I remember it as a nice one, very informative, with lots of educational, interesting gifts in the gift shop.

But this time there was a big difference.  I should have known something had changed by the police presence there.

2 police presence 370


So maybe they were just having a meeting.

Here is the monument built to the Donner party,  90 some in all,  and 46 died.

2 Monument 370Their story is, of course,  a bit sensational:   betrayal and incompetence along the way,  miscalculation of the season and ignorance of survival techniques in  the weather,  and the overblown “horrors”  of cannibalism by a couple of the people,  in an attempt to stay alive.

It happened here:

2 map 350

That’s Cooper’s   “Beautiful Lake,”  as he calls it, where we did so much of our activities.

But in the museum (information center) –  Gone were the beautiful displays of animals native to the area.   Gone  were the life-sized figures of the people and their daily equipment, pots and pans,  children’s toys,  their covered wagons,  yokes, and wheels and axles.    Gone were the historical dioramas of building the railroad into the High Sierras shortly after the Donner Party tragedy,  a railroad which would have made their tragedy unnecessary.     Gone were many of the logs and diaries and books written by the survivors.    Gone was the sense of the grit and courage and perseverance of the Donner Party,  a tribute to the hope and dignity of human beings.

So much I had wanted to see again was just gone.   In fact,  if I didn’t know the story well myself,  I would have been a bit puzzled about what exactly had happened here.

2 donner party area 370

Because I had known what had happened here,  it was easy to recreate in my imagination what took place in these woods.   This is a poignant and eerie scene –  if you know the details.

A few areas were marked.  The actual campsite of one of the families:

2 camp site 370

With just a small plaque to name this site.

They had built a brand new large “information center”  —  so what took up all that space?

Well,  two main large areas told us:   “We must not forget that Western Man destroyed the culture of the   Washoe people  who lived here.”

2 Washoe 370

And there were some large displays of generic “Native American”  life.    This could be any tribe of Indians.    But they can’t live like this anymore.    This culture is  “gone.”

The second main large area was taken up by the Chinese coolies  (is it still okay to call them that?)   who were brought over from China  (shanghaied –  is it still okay to say that?  Because  Chinese merchants captured and sold their fellow Chinese to any country who could use them as workers.)   to do the hard labor of building the railroad across America.

The main statement was:   Western Man must not leave them out of the pages of history.”

Well, guess what!   Western Man didn’t!   I remember learning about the Chinese laborers in at least three different years in school,  with an increasing, maturing  presentation of their plight and of the context.

If young people today,  40 and unders,  don’t know about the Chinese laborers,  don’t blame Western Man –  blame the government schools and their weak, dumbed down curricula.     No one has “forgotten”  them except for the education system.

After all this negativity,  I felt like  “ducking”   every time I read some display sign.

This censorship of the “whole”  story of . . .  anything . . .  was all over.   There was an underlying feeling of guilt and self-doubt and uncertainty everywhere I went.

How about trying to buy some food?

2 Ca style food warning 380


And when presented by two or three or four trash cans side by side,  I never did learn which was “garbage” or “recyclable”  or  “compost”  or  “you’d better not put that in here”!

I hope this Left Coast mentality is stopped before it permeates our entire society.   This is not what our Founding Fathers,  our forefathers, and our grandfathers  fought for!   We must not lose our American History in a hysteria of anti-West,  anti-White,   anti-human propaganda.






August 12, 2017

(Wow –  a hardcore narrative is forming now over the events I watched today.  which tells a story  opposite of the portion I witnessed earlier today.      The politically correct way to talk about  this lawful protest is to  emphasize  words like “nazi” and “white supremacist”   and “violence”  and “hate” and “bigoted”   — and to absolutely leave out the thousands of black and white American citizens who are protesting the eradication of their own history.   The reporting is so muddled.     The character of the events will change.    The victims of the counter-protestors are finally fighting back a little, so now they can be made to look like the agitators.    The victims of Hate are being called the Haters.    This hardcore counter narrative is strong!)    



(No photos.    You will see this later and be told a different story by our (leftist) media groups, but for now,  come with me and be eyewitness to the events.)



Right now,    Saturday,  August 12, I’m watching peaceful demonstrators being assaulted by the Leftists; by many professional, well-funded Leftist groups that show up in many places in our country to shut down free speech.

The peaceful demonstrators are opposing the Cultural Marxist movement which is trying to remove all traces of American culture and its history.


I am watching ( on my other screen) a peaceful and lawful demonstration in Charlottesville,  Virginia,  an exercise in free speech that Americans are supposed to have, but they are now, on camera,  being assaulted by extreme Leftists.

I’m watching  . . .   the peaceful demonstrators being assaulted with urine, feces,   balloons filled with various liquids,   sticky colored liquids, and tear gas.

Not tear gas by the police, but tear gas from the Leftist groups – Antifa among them, and Black Lives Matter, various university-age people,  and some unnamed homosexual group with a woman shouting out accusations.

. . . .  Black Lives Matter people are in black masks and shouting unprintable obscenities and threats and insults.

. . . .  The Leftist groups are being allowed to totally dominate the peaceful demonstrators, pushing them back and back and back with balloons of urine and tear gas . . .   I thought the police were supposed to keep the groups separate.   The Leftists are pushing back the peaceful demonstrators, and certainly out-shouting them.

. . .    Those who committed the assaults are not getting arrested.

. . . .     Now some peaceful demonstrators are being sprayed by the police.   Tear gas, I think.

. . .  Some of the peaceful demonstrators who were affected by the tear gas, some injured and blinded,   tried to move away from the clouds of tear gas were being forced by the police to move back into the Antifa group who are still in the process of assaulting.



Ooops.     A Facebook interruption. I must have been watching a livestream through some Facebook means, and they just shut down the video.   Not surprised.   The Leftists were beginning to look like professional rioters. the peaceful demonstrators remained peaceful.    Facebook censors . . . . 



Found another livestream video source.

. . .   The peaceful demonstrators with a permit to demonstrate there, at that particular location, are now being told  that their demonstration is unlawful.   Where’d that come from?      (Doesn’t the Bill of Rights give them the right to peaceful assembly?)

. . . Some nicely dressed people are moving around among the peaceful demonstrators, offering them bottles of water and looks  like small pieces of pizza.   (Southern hospitality?    Historic Southern culture  is being suppressed all over the South.)

….  Blacks and whites who are with the peaceful demonstrators are both shouting that they want to preserve their history, their culture, their right to free speech. You can’t hardly hear their words over the Leftists shouts of racist, bigot go home, and other words like that.

. . .   And now they’re spitting;    Antifa, the Leftist group, is spitting at the peaceful demonstrators.     I can see the . . . spit.

. . .   There are bottles being thrown filled with urine,  liquid gel  (so it sticks in your eyes),  and some kind of burning chemical.

. . .   Now someone is throwing pepper spray at the peaceful demonstrators.    Police have apparently been ordered to . . . let them.

Shouldn’t police stop Antifa from using pepper spray against people?

. . . . Someone now seems to be gathering small groups of people from both sides and goading them into a brawl.    Therefore, as one Leftist shouted:   “White Supremacist Violence!!!”   That’s a slogan.    Or he’s seeing something somewhere else that this camera is not finding.

And so,   on it will go,  probably into the evening.

I hope I’ve given you a ” long-distance” eyewitness view of what’s going on today.

What am I seeing?

– – – – –

Mainstream media is calling the peaceful demonstrators  “Alt-right”  as though giving them a label will make them appear bad.

The protests began when the city government of Charlottesville have called for the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee,  over the protests of many citizens.   In the words of one:  “trying to remove a historical war memorial and a work of art which is important to millions of people was an act of hate by the city council.” 

(I must add that Robert E. Lee is one of my heroes too.   Even though I was raised in Illinois,   I also studied history and learned the broader issues surrounding the War Between the States in the 19th century.  Robert E. Lee was a great general,  who was opposed to secession.)


. . . .   Oh, wow — I just saw a reporter beginning to introduce himself to a camera, and a man ran up to him and hit him in the face and knocked him down — shouting something or other, and then ran away.

. . .   I can hear someone groaning in pain because he just got struck with pepper spray  — eyewitnesses identified the attacker as a self-identified “marxist.”


 Someone  posted this quotation, which seems to describe what is being perpetrated against American citizens:

“The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long the nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was.” — The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, by Milan Kundera



. . . .  Medics are on the scene . . . .

This is addictive.    I need to  stop.

Again,  I’m sure you will be shown an opposite narrative on



 Moral of the story?     Don’t stand up for your rights if you don’t want the Left to violently attack you and throw chemicals, urine,  pepper spray, and tear gas at you.

Leftist Rule!   Leftists Win!!





And now, on media sources, as the hardcore narrative is being developed —   President Trump is being blamed . . . . 


June 20, 2017

(very random “apparentlies”  from the Spruce Tunnel)


Yes:   –  in the immortal words of Apollonia Corleone,   the short-lived wife of Michael Corleone:        “Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Wednesday . . .”

This is Tuesday.  Apparently.    When the normal activities of the weekdays are suspended,  every day seems like a weekend day.  Hence, my abortive trip to Sunday morning Mass – last Friday.

Our young lady friend is off her ventilator, finally, and out of the ICU.   She is better, but still has a long way to go.     I’m spending less time at the hospital,  more time on my new (and rather demanding) classes for the summer.    I need to do so well with that topic . . . .

Yet, I haven’t really caught up with Time.  That takes some effort.    How I would like to slide into that state of Perpetual Retirement,  where the only activities are occasional voluntary activities.

But I have promises to keep,    And miles to go before I sleep.”  *

Speaking of which,  I could use a little snow.    I’ve resurfaced into a heat wave, with a long string of near 90-degree temperatures and almost daily thunderstorms, which menace my electronics.

sad tv.jpg 70x90   I’ve also checked into what the entertainment-news media is going on about.    Same thing.   Same words. Same people.  Same accusations.    Same minor terrorist strikes here and there.  Same perplexities about what to do . . . .  Missing a week and a half has not resulted in any developments.    The world does not need my attention!

This discovery needs my attention:

Slant Tree.jpg 380


That’s my front yard.

S My house.jpg 380

Apparently we had a wind storm this weekend.

Son will know what to do.

It’s apparently going to take some time to return to normal.   Me, that is.  I’m coming out of these past almost two weeks a little shaken.    It was a life-and-death matter, after all, to watch a young lady have to fight for her life – with no definite diagnosis that started it all.   And then to worry anew about the state of her soul and of  my childrens’  souls . . . .  And my own efforts seem weak next to the consequences of getting it wrong.

And, yes, I still studied in my spare moments.  I studied  Gramschi, again;     Herbert Marcuse,  Wilhelm Reich – you probably know where I’m going with this:   the stunning victory of cultural marxism,over our society.     In the Catholic Church this is called:  The Errors of Russia.   Although it didn’t begin with the Russian Revolution,  it nevertheless points to Error,  the kind that will separate you from God – forever.

Frankfort School

“Critical Theory”:   Criticize everything;  demonize the cultural norms;  break down society so that it can be replaced with the Slavery of Marxist-Liberalism – because the State is  more important than the individual.  The atheistic State is more important than your immortal soul.

I’m a bit shaken with that realization.     The realization of the complete and utter victory of cultural marxism over the society my children and grandchildren have to live in.   What chance to they have?

What chance do they have to even learn about it, after years of schooling in an apparent  marxist – liberal environment of anti-intellectualism,  anti-analytical thinking,   anti-objective reality,  anti-logic, anti-truth — and the Any Glass theory:  Any glass will do it for you when you’re thirsty.  (No right and wrong, no moral norms, no “judgmental” thinking.)

Apparently, I have a lot of catching up to do.     (Why was I made with this impulse to teach?   I don’t know.    It’s my duty;  it’s what I am.)    I have a lot of catching up in my studies to do.     It’s the only way I can be of use to my classes,  to my family and  friends     . . .   to God.

Crash course for me this summer.    Cramming again.    Not for final exams,  but so I can be a better parent,  a better teacher,   a better blog writer.




.  *  I have struggled and struggled with this poem all my life

Stopping by The Woods One Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   
My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   
He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.
by Robert Frost





November 12, 2016

I’m not going to show photos of the children out on the streets imitating the demonstrations of their grandfathers during the Sixties.   You’ve seen the videos on television, I’m sure.

I’ve been perusing through lots of tweets from these oh, so nice Leftists who sit behind “news” desks and who are out on the streets,  defying the police.    Some of the nasty tweets from the Leftists who are known to preach Tolerance are calling for the “sni   pers”   and  “de  at h ”  to the Pre  s. Elect,   etc.   One female granchild out on the streets warned us that there would have to be  death on both sides of this “revolution.”

: )

The funniest tweet was the one that threatened Americans with World War Two if the election is not overturned.    Uh.    I think her teachers missed teaching her something, like  we’ve already had World War Two.

Why are they out there?  Well, this leads us eventually to Putin of Russia.

First,  did you get your Invitation? released the following press release Wednesday afternoon:
    Americans to Come Together in Hundreds Peaceful Gatherings of Solidarity, Resistance, and Resolve Following Election Results
    Hundreds of Americans, dozens of organizations to gather peacefully outside the White House and in cities and towns nationwide to take a continued stand against misogyny, racism, Islamophobia, and xenophobia.                                                                                              The gatherings – organized by and allies – will affirm a continued rejection of Donald Trump’s bigotry, xenophobia, Islamophobia, and misogyny and demonstrate our resolve to fight together for the America we still believe is possible.                    

    WHAT: Hundreds of peaceful gatherings of solidarity, resistance, and resolve nationwide

    WHEN / WHERE: Find local gatherings here. Major gatherings include in New York City’s Columbus Circle and outside the White House in Washington, DC.

    RSVP: Please email to confirm attendance.

Looks like many of the recipients did indeed “RSVP.”

As far as bigotry and racism go,  we are seeing racism at its worst:    Many reports have come in this week of violent racism committed against:  white people.     Hope you’ve been keeping up with some of it;  just so you know what our Leftists are like.

I’ve seen videos of white men puled out of their cars and beaten;  I watched the video of the California white teenager who was kicked repeatedly,  held down by her hair,  had her earrings ripped out of her ear . . .   The bully was not white.

And it’s not just teenagers or adults who are victims:


You like children?    This eleven year old boy was beaten up in school after a mock school election   (which is actually an abuse of children anyway)  and when the children of Leftists found out he had voted for Trump . . .  they hurt him,  enough so he had to be taken to a doctor.    (School refuses to say what was done to the juvenile bullies.)

Sometimes I do get worried.   What if more people respond to that “invitation”  above, and others like it?    Where did that come from?  Who is  “mo  ve.  on.  dot or g”?

Community organizers.   Acorn-like action organizations.   Saul Alinsky types.  Leftists.    “Black Lives Matter.”     Political arms of the Global socialists.

Which,  by the way,   is where the money is coming from.  I was dismayed to hear how many hundred of millions dollars have been pouring into our country to agitate,  to foment civil unrest,  to encourage political  upheaval,  to teach and lead and promote riots over the past few years;  and now to interfere with the outcome of our national election.

Who’s donating all that money?

George Soros.    International,  global socialist Billionaire.


Truthfully,  he is doing this in other countries too.   Causing social instability.

Which,  by the way,  is why  Putin,  as the leader of his country,  has put out a reward for the arrest of George Soros.    Putin’s order will – if successful – not only remove a major threat to his own country,  but to many others around the world.    American citizens seem to be the last to know. . .

He is promoting the  fighting between people and their governments and between one nation and another.

The opposite is peace and order.

Ironic,   that it is Putin who is trying to bring about peace.





November 7, 2016
  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!



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.





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.

8. STEAM KETTLE DAYS – Something Cold and Wicked . . .

November 1, 2016

” . . .   This Way Comes.”

“Something Cold and Wicked This Way Comes.”    Most people know that phrase,  from the Stephen King movie.

But I’m adding “Cold”  because Winter is coming just as  something very wicked is coming along with it.


Makes me so mad,  because just as people are going to need their furnaces, a matter of life and death around here and in much of our country,  our Rulers have decided to increase the pressure on us by raising our heating bills to unaffordable levels.

It’s a win-win situation for them;  lose-lose for us.

First of all, forget nuclear power plants.   ALL of them are expensive.  ALL of them are leaking radiation into the atmosphere and/or ground water.   Almost all of them are operating past their permitted time of 40 years – but we don’t know what to do with the aging power plants,and even if we did,  we have no idea what to do with the “spent”  fuel rods which are inconceivably dangerous to us.

(Remember what happened in the back areas of Carlsbad Caverns!!)

Humans!      “The gods give us toys that will destroy us.”    (See enenews on the sidebar if you don’t know what’s going on in Fukushima – no, it’s not over…)

The rain on my deck should not be THREE times the acceptable background radiation:











These readings have gone up over 200 after some rainstorms.

I said “our Rulers have decided to increase the pressure on us”  and one of the ways to get our attention is to drive up the cost of heating and cooling.    When the Barack Hussein person was first put into office by them,  he announced that he would make our utility costs  skyrocket.         Skyrocket beyond affordability!

There!   That ought to make us agree with his plan to shut down coal plants,  prevent us from  using our own  natural gas and oil resrevs,  keeping us dependent upon Arab (Muslim) sources of fuels,    with the added benefit to his Rulers of being able to extend the myth of “global warming.”

The Barack Hussein person got applause for this from his own audience – and kudos of approval from the entertainment-news media.



Just if you go by facts alone, the actual numbers,  coal mining has successfully implemented rules and regulations to make it a cleaner industry and safe.    Just statistically speaking.



Just if you go by facts alone, the actual numbers,  the nuclear power industry has implemented rules and regulations but has still not achieved safety nor efficiency nor cost- effectiveness.    Just statistically speaking.   Nearly ALL of your power plants have passed their safe age of operation.


We have “weather”    here in the Far North.   We have a  “climate.” 

It gets very hot here in our summer months – not for long,  but for long enough.  It’s natural in our summers.  It’s always happened.

One day this summer I was listening to our local news and item # 1  was that on this particularly warm day there were power outages, blackouts and brownouts due to increasing need for air conditioning.   This was unusual, so the news-reader read out the explanation:     So many power plants had been shut down recently by decree,  dictatorial decree,  that the remaining power plants cannot produce enough power that can  be distributed around our state (for cooling or heating) !

Without blinking,  this news reader then went on to read another part of her script:   Our state has received orders  to shut down 30 more power plants in the near future.       And the state government will do so.

We don’t have enough power –  so shut down some more power plants.


No local input.   No local control.   No citizen input.   No citizen control over our own well-being.

Apparently this is happening in state after state.

Something very cold is coming:  Winter in the Far North.

Something very wicked is approaching:     Global socialism . . .  the control mechanism of our Rulers.

 Election 2016:           Them versus You.

Laws that benefit Americans?   Or Rules that make our Rulers stronger?        This is truly War Against America.   Slowly “transforming” America.     Vote to continue that – or vote to stop it.

Name that one clean uncorrupted department in government .  .  .


Simmering, simmering, simmering . . .

Honestly,  I woke up this morning and wrote FOUR angry posts . . .   but  it’s always good to cool down before you hit that “Publish”  button.

So I turned down the heat to Simmer, and went on off to my Monday class —  where I learned a thing or two from my people there.    Good class,  guys;  good questions.  Now I’m the one with homework to do!

bear-claw-70 And it’s hard to remain at full boil when the Bears played so well tonight.  Mr. “Arm Like A Cannon”   Cutler finally got back into the game  –  and he did well!

Go Bears!      Go    Chi – –

Chicago.      City of my childhood.    The weekly “weekend report”  tells us  “17 dead from gunshots,  40 wounded.”    You don’t think it’s “poor people”  doing it to each other, do you?     Poor people aren’t automatically immoral and murderous.    Poor people struggle with their poverty, they don’t naturally turn on each other.

All these gunshots in a city which has the strictest, most restricting gun laws in the nation.

What’s doing it?    Al Capone and Frank Nitti are gone.    The Italian families don’t have the power to tone things down anymore.   The Irish gangs are gone.  The Jewish gangs are gone.   The Puerto Ricans are gone.    Mayor Daley and the traditional Democrats are gone.

Welcome to the New Chicago reality.    The Alinsky-ites have been steadily moving in and now, decades later, we have some obvious results.    Just draw a direct line from the actual   Marxists infiltrating the University of Chicago,   1910-1950,  changing the culture there   forever.   You get no promotions, no positions, no power unless you’re one of them.

You don’t even get to publish your ideas if you don’t toe the party line.

“The end justifies the means.”    “Lying is good for the Cause.”    “Create a social crisis and then use that crisis to  insert your (marxist)  goals.”  Remember:  “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”

Lie, lie, lie to the people;  as  R.oyal  C.lintoness has said in a recently exposed email,   they’ve  got to get those   “F*-ing  young people on their side.”   So much for  respect for the Millennials.   She, a top disciple of Saul Alinsky.  He had plans  to hire  her  for a big position in Chicago politics.

She was on to something bigger, in her mind.   A bigger pond to scum up.

Read Rules for Radicals.     If you do not,  you won’t have any way to understand what’s going on, because these Alinsky-ites who created the Chicago Pond Scum that overflows into Washington DC  have learned how to get the upper hand, now, and they have corrupted everything everywhere they have seeped into.   Draw the straight line.  And watch American values being consumed by the Scum.

“Create a crisis . . .”      Break up Americans into separate demographic groups and pit them against each other.    Make up new ones and pigeonhole people into new categories.  Enlist the aid of the (also) Leftist entertainment-news media and make it seem as though Americans are fighting Americans.   It’s good entertainment.  Our emotions are aroused.  We’re  “open”  to marxist solutions.

And then . . .   then . . .  when  your fellow-Alinsky-ites get power in our nation’s capital,   then use all the agencies,  the departments,  the regulatory boards to advance the noble  marxist, globalist Cause.

Name  ONE department in our nation’s capital which they have not corrupted or put corrupt officials into, or are beginning to corrupt by promises, quid pro quos,  pressure, and intimidations, and the flow of money.     Name ONE.   I can’t find one yet.  I couldn’t find anywhere where the governing hands that we rely on are not corrupted by the presence of these people.

Go back to Chicago.   Who do you thing is doing all this shooting?    Oh,  some bad guys.  Some  “poor people” who have been radicalized and have been taught that the “system” is against them so they have to shoot out at people.

But, no.  There’s another source –  (and because of the new regulations coming down on Internet users, I’m going to choose not to link to these sources or post photos or quotations. )

Just simply,  to summarize,  you can research this yourself,  there is the deliberately encouraged proliferation of gangs from south of the border into our urban areas, including Chicago, but also including some of the “mildest”  cities you can think of,  like  Lincoln, NE, for instance which I have to drive through occasionally.   It’s not the Bloods and the Crips.     It’s some of the most vicious drug cartels you can’t even ever imagine.    They leave a trail of mutilated corpses behind,  burned, dismembered,  half-eaten (yes,  eaten!),    not just killed but tortured in horrific  ways – and they make their progress across territories . . .

Can’t we stop them?    It’s an invasion into our peaceful country.  Can’t we stop them?

steam-kettle   Here’s where the steam kettle starts boiling again.    Our deeply corrupted Agency that’s  supposed to Enforce our Drug laws and protect Americans from the stream of drugs into our country has made deals with the drug cartels – according to various reports, and according to one inner-Agency whistleblower who just reported out this past weekend (so multiple sources);  deals by which we will allow the a majority of drug activity to continue, including the transport of heroin and cocaine INTO our country – we will allow this –  and they will permit our Agency to stop and arrest a very much smaller percentage of what we actually catch.

How’s that for CAUSING a crisis?   In Chicago these are drug turf wars;  cartel enforcers;   drugs, drugs, drugs,  and drugs from foreign countries.

A trillion dollars worth of poppy crops grown in Afghanistan, for instance,  according to international auditors.       A trillion dollars?

Do the Afghani people seem like rich people to you?

Election 2016:    Continued Corruption of the Elite Establishment?


An  outsider,  non-politician,  who has outlined a very  possibly personally dangerous  course promising to confront  this whole problem.

(For the cynics:  he has a track record of appointing the  best,  most experienced people to get a job done.     Experienced drug enforcement agents and border people –  experienced,  though handcuffed and dismayed for the past several years.  They’re  ready to do their job!)

If America elects the Continued Corruption of the Elite,    it won’t not change anything.    The problem  grows and it will spread everywhere.
