Items From My Mailbox: Thanks Bonnie

This is  amazing!   
Did you know "listen" and "silent" use  the same letters? 
Do you know that the  word "racecar" spelled backwards still spells "racecar"?  
And that "eat" is the  only word that if you take the first letter and move it to the last, it spells its past tense "ate"? 
Have you noticed that  if you rearrange the letters in  "illegal immigrants" and add just a few more  letters, it spells: "Go home you free-loading, benefit- grabbing,  resource-sucking, non-English-speaking assholes and take those other hairy-faced, sandal-wearing,  bomb-making,  camel-riding, goat-shagging, raggedy-ass bastards with you." 
How weird is  that?

If We Cannot Find A Candidate Willing To Repeal EVERY WORD of Obamacare, We Might Just As Well Not Vote

To reiterate my perspective, I did not start this blog to hammer out the usual political discourse of the day. My interests were more about mind control and mass movements than about specific political issues. The creepiest phenomenon I have ever witnessed is the goose-stepping, Kool-Aid guzzling, cult of Obama who pledge their unending loyalty to a man they do not know and do not care to know.

That we can have an unvetted, unknown, international man of mystery whose autobiography is revealed to be entirely fictional serve TWO TERMS as president will confuse me for the rest of my life. Are there no limits to the gullibility of Obama worshipers? How did this amorphous figure hijack our entire news media? Who are the power brokers who control this empty suit and what are their objectives?

I have seen the Clintons as a lesser evil than this occult administration. Bill Clinton always seemed like a vain and venal politician. That might not be high praise but at least we know where he's coming from. We have weathered many a Tammany Hall and I would not suggest that the political machine is an ideal to capture our aspirations but if the big shots are not overwhelmed by hubris, life goes on pretty much as usual.

The contrasts with Bill and Barry are unending. We know more than we care to know about one and know almost nothing about the other. One seeks literal worship and the other craves cash and hotties and hotties and cash in that order. One is offended at the very idea of dissent and the other sees discord as an opportunity to rev up the charm machine. Could they be more different?

Which brings us to Hillary. Is Hillary more like Bill or more like Barry? Last night I saw an ad where Hillary is promoting the continuation of Obamacare. That puzzles me. The ever-savvy Clntons know that Obamacare is a train wreck and that it has been politically unpopular from its inception. Usually the public disapproves of Obamacare by a margin ranging from 4:3 to 3:2.

I cannot imagine that this ad has the blessing of the consummate politician whose wife views him as much as a mentor as anything else. We have to ask ourselves if this has anything to do with Hillary's criminal probe and her demand that Barry "call off your (expletive deleted) dogs.!" Regardless of motive, this ad puts Hillary's candidacy in a whole new light.

As mentioned, I don't have an appetite to continue political discourse from ten years ago. Talk radio hosts could not wait to bash Hillary. It sometimes seemed like the Obama Administration was an eight year distraction for them. It's the Clintons that the Conservatives love to hate and Barry was a plot complication. Get him out of the way so we can re-fight Whitewater.

My blogging has fallen off to a couple of posts per week. Part of that is a lack of enthusiasm for any GOP candidate (more on that in a later post) and part of it is a lack of enmity for the Clintons. Hillary's supporting a continuance of Obamacare changes things. Obamacare is not merely flawed legislation, It is a nightmare. A disaster. A catastrophe with no silver lining except perhaps the enhanced solidity of our nation's largest insurance companies. The people who the Dems love to hate have fared pretty well under Obamacare.

Granted this country has more problems than ever before with more scandals and more deception and more duplicity than we thought possible. In the flood of Iran deals and terrorist refugees and "powerful rebukes" and flimflam artists who say with no hint of irony that global warming is a greater threat than ongoing terrorism and who then jet-hop around the globe to wag their fingers at the peasants and decry their collective carbon footprint, it is easy to be consumed by the disaster du jour. In the tsunami of misery that is the Obama Administration we might have lost track of Obamacare as a political issue.

In all the debates and all the rallies and all the interviews, do we even know where the candidates stand on Obamacare? Trump says he would replace it with something better. Huh? Cruz says he would repeal every word. Carson has also expressed disapproval. Paul of course is against Obamacare but his campaign is fading into the sunset. I honestly don't know the other candidates' positions but I do wish they would express them.

For a handful of reasons--OK two or three handfuls---I cannot get excited about Donald Trump. If he came out and said "Repeal every word" I might put my hands in my pocket and get behind the Donald. I have been critical of the people who stayed home the last two presidential elections but if both major parties support Obamacare or a replacement with something similar, why bother voting?

Not Exactly A Book Review: The Manchurian President: Barack Obama's Ties to Communists, Socialists and Other Anti-American Extremists by Aaron Klein with Brenda J. Elliott

The question at this stage of the game is "are the details of the background of Barack Obama still relevant?" I say yes.

And so, this is a book well worth reading.

Michelle Malkin exposed a cesspool in "Culture of Corruption." Aaron Klein warned us about Obama's ineptitude in the aptly named, "The Amateur." It was released as a warning prior to the 2012 elections. At about the same time David Limbaugh released "The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama's War on the Republic" which made a damn good case against Obama's re-election but would of course be ignored by the Kool-Aid crowd. 

Corrupt, inept and deliberately destructive. Add Marxist ideologue to that list and you have an accurate description of President Obama. Klein painstakingly connects the dots in Obama's far left, anti-American network. 

If you are not by now numb, this book will disturb you. Yes, the mainstream media glossed over Barry's bomb-throwing, nihilistic connections but in fairness to the fourth estate, it would have consumed most of their resources to elaborate on this story. It's not just Ayers and Dorhn and guys from the neighborhood. The devils are in the details and there are a lot of both here.

This is mostly a dry but fact-heavy expose. Given that Aaron Klein does not sit at the cool kids table in the Conservative cafeteria, he won't get the praise that Hannity heaps on Levin or Gutfeld heaps on Coulter. If the author is dismissed as a B-teamer, let me state that this is an excellent reference book. 

One mark of a good book is that it reveals something in passing. For instance, in reading about the Kennedys I learned that the Navy recruited Ivy Leaguers to command PT boats because of their oversized egos that might not fit in well in the hierarchy of a larger ship. Men like John Kennedy (and I suppose John Kerry a couple of decades later) have to be the top dog and their personalities are better suited for small crews.

In reading "The Manchurian President..." I learned that the Nation of Islam was responsible for as many as 70 (Wikipedia says possibly more than 80) black on white wanton murders in the San Francisco area in the 1970's. I remember reading about "The Zebra Killers" way back when but the body count was not near as high and at no time did the press link the slaughter to the religion soon to be headed by Louis Farrakhan. 

I recommend "The Manchurian President..."
