I had no idea it had been almost a complete month since I posted.  We have been very, very busy.  We are moving from our home we built 17 years ago.  We thought at the time we would be there forever.  But time takes a toll on our bodies and we are just not able to keep up with the work seven acres of woods and wilderness can bring.  So we have moved into town, mostly.  There are still books to be gone through and either kept or discarded, some the pictures andpaintings are still on the walls, but in the main everything we need is now at our home in town. In boxes; many items put away but so much left to do. The garage sale pile keeps growing.  It is taking up a good 1/3 of the garage in town and 1/4 of a bedroom in the old home.  We are waiting for cool weather for that garage sale!

A lot has happened in politics and world issues since then.  Iran, Trump, more Hillary scandals, (is there no end?), Cruz, Carly, Scott, and all the rest who shall be nameless here but you know who they are, are all making headlines.  Planned Parenthood has shown its ugly inner self again.  They are making Gosnell look dumb for storing dead babies when he could have been selling them.  Little did that old ghould know.

So anyway here is the latest:

In case you didn’t get this in your news: Kenyan President Rebukes Obama’s Gay rights message.
Oh, the horror that someone would actually rat out these gruesome secrets from Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards insisted Sunday that her organization has broken no laws and does not — “at all” — profit from the transfer of fetal tissue, a response to a scandal that enveloped the group after undercover videos showed officials discussing the surgical process and its costs in a nonchalant manner.

A former senior New York Times reporter is disturbed by the way it even dared to imply Hillary was involved in a scandal.

On Carly, Walker and Cruz.

Who could not see this coming?  Obama restricts investigative powers of Inspectors General.  I would say “can he do that?”, but at this point he seems to be able to do anything his heart desires.

Two low-profile Texas brothers have donated $15 million to support Sen. Ted Cruz, a record-setting contribution that amounts to the largest known donation so far in the 2016 presidential campaign.
I SAY GOOD FOR THEM.

Inside Higher Ed–the gist of it is like all bureaucracies it is very bloated.

Eugene Volokh says the remaining count against Rick Perry unconstitutionally intrudes on the Governor’s veto power.

He isn’t half as disturbed about this as I am.

I am not  a member of the Roman Catholic Church, or actually of any church except the First Baptist Church of Rockport since 1949, but I love and respect the Anchoress and read her blogs on a daily basis. I think this says a lot on women’s rights, love and respect and how some in America do not realize how very, very fortunate they are to live in America.

I was very offended by the rainbow colors lighting up the White House, and did you notice the rainbow flag is not really the colors of the rainbow?  It is a brilliant caricature of God’s rainbow.

GARY HART?  He is speaking words of wisdom Unintended consequences of the Citizen United decision have guaranteed that even though Tea Parties can get a majority of Republicans in congress, those same leaders of that majority have sold out to those more powerful, more monied, so the people who gave them that majority status are overpowered by the lobbyists. And they have the nerve to punish the conservatives.

We knew he had an agenda.  Now his brother is selling it.  And going beyond this letter the trail of all modern social activism lead back to the White House. The Trojan Horse of disaster.

Oh dear!  Now they are worried about the “specialness” of being gay.  Never enough for some people.

I do not want global warming debate from a doctor.  Nor do I expect to have it.

An army isn’t needed anymore to overthrow a nation. One Supreme Court justice is all it takes.

Ross Douthat is right in this article, the ruling is against family, not for it. Gay Conservatism and Straight Liberation  He says: Unfortunately I see little evidence that people are actually happier in the emerging dispensation, or that their children are better off, or that the cause of social justice is well-served, or that declining marriage rates and thinning family trees (plus legal pressure on religious communities that are exceptions to this rule) promise anything save greater loneliness for the majority, and stagnation overall.  

Never forget what Richard Fernandez says in this article, You are the Someone.

This is a true story sent to me by a friend who is a chaplain for a Christian volunteer group.   VA covers religious symbols.

Several have told us this campaign again our flag was coming.  It’s here.

Farm workers may be waking up to what the unions really do. In a turnabout for California’s storied history of migrant labor, Latino field hands are fighting to get the United Farm Workers, the union that carries on the legacy of founder Cesar Chavez, out of their lives and pockets.

An accidental  invite.

The raisin case—what took so long? From his grave, Franklin Delano Roosevelt laughs in your face, America. He changed the nation into a socialist state in which the government sets farm prices for the benefit of a few rich people whose money is in tax-exempt

Obama Hasn’t Done Ship–  it’s about the Navy, people.

God Bless Judicial Watch, they find evidence for what we all knew as true.  Valerie Jarrett was raised by communists

The tunnel between Calais and Great Britain is closed due to striking workers acting out, to put it mildly.

Hillary and the Confederate flag.  And here we have Clinton-Gore.  Even Obama?  can the world get more surreal?

How to give money to your enemy and lose innocent lives at the same time- Obama’s new hostage policy.  An unknown government official calls the instigator (not Obama) an idiot.

A perfect explanation of the gimme people.  I tried to go to the original source on this, I’m still trying.

A federal judge has blocked Obama’s new fracking rules, for a time.

Sessions and Cruz team up against Obamatrade   Enough is enough. I cannot vote for TPA unless McConnell and Boehner both commit publicly to allow the Ex-Im Bank to expire—and stay expired. And, Congress must also pass the Cruz-Sessions amendments to TPA to ensure that no trade agreement can try to back-door changes to our immigration laws. Otherwise, I will have no choice but vote no.

The science adviser to the Pope is a Pantheist, not a Christian.

We get RFD TV on Dish Network. Do you?   I want to use a cable service when I move to town, but as far as I can tell the local Times Warner does not carry RFD TV or it twin Rural TV. They are going to start doing political discussion. Good for them.

On the 10th anniversary of the KELO decision.   The Supreme Court should hang their heads in shame over this decision.

Mark Meadows: Sometimes you have to change the coach. I agree, John Boehner is a very divisive leader.

Mexico is doing more than we are to fix the immigrant problems we both face.

We knew about Gruber’s role but these emails leave no doubt he helped develop Obamacare.  Read what the Morning Joe folks had to say about it.

True Religion stood up and was counted with the “Charleston Witness Statement.”  how many noticed the lack of riots in the South?  There are many ways the South really is better.  Am I biased?  Yes.  And maybe I spoke too soon.

You’ve probably already read what Karl Rove had to say about the 2nd amendmentThis is what he actually said.  I really do not know why Fox has Rove on so often.

There is probably much about Gov. Perry we do not know, I surely did not know he and his wife supported Marcus Lutrell  as if he were their own son, well before Lutrell became famous.

We watched Carly Fiorina on C-span when she gave a speech to the Faith and Freedom coalition, we were impressed.  While you are are there you might want to watch the other speeches, too.

Are Conservative Think Tanks dead because of the lack of facts and reason?  Earick Ward discusses the problems.

It’s about time!  Detroit Cops seek to find urban terrorists.  Terrible shootings and killings, rape and pillaging so to speak, happen every day in the ghettos of major cities and there is no hew and cry in the major media.  Why?  Those lives matter.

Oops, even the Cato Institute sees some flaws in this climate change reasoning, or lack thereof.

From the Just One Minute blog: Maybe the House committee on government oversight should reach out to the Chinese and see if they can give us the Lois Lerner emails.

This Is Why Paul Ryan Didn’t Run for President  and it is very close to the reason I wish Dr. Carson was not running.  He needs to stay above the fray and be a great thinker and statesman.

There have been a lot of people who condemn the south for one man’s actions.  This from the census bureau tells us there is more segregation in the northeast and midwest than in the south.

Pope Francis did not want to hear from deniers of AGW, or was it those around him who did not want him to hear?  We will never know, all we know is he has accepted the religion of climate change caused by man.

Recycling really doesn’t pay.  What should we do about it? We recycle paper and plastic. I would be more than thrilled if every little thing is not enclosed in plastic that has to be wrestled out or cut to get to the item.

Losing the Merge,Richard Fernandez on the killer in Charleston and the ISIS suicide bombers.

John Hinderacker in Powerline blog says what I have been thinkingActually, no: you may be a white Southerner, but unless you went into a black church and murdered nine people, you are not Dylann Roof. Roof was right when he complained that “[w]e have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet. There was no one but him, a fact that liberals can’t seem to accept. The whole of the southern states have been blamed for this act, called racist and other slanders.  Yet, in his own words Roof admits he did not find co-horts to help with his race war.  It just wasn’t happening. I have to admit I get some racist emails from some of you on this list, but I would  not accuse you of thinking or condoning murder of anyone of any color. I might, however, accuse you of bad taste.

Hold the global creators of refugees accountable.

Bernie Saunders honeymooned in Communist USSR  I was led to the link from the blog Progressives Today.

I found this in Gateway Pundit: Israel National News reported:  United States Congressman Louie Gohmert revealed Thursday that the Obama administration had “outed” an active Israeli spy mission in Iran. Israel, he said, had infiltrated Israeli spies into mainland Iran via cargo boats.

Republicans, you have alienated a great many conservatives.  The current purging of conservatives in the House is not looking good for the party.  The conservatives are responsible for the majority status, to treat them as pariahs is not a good thing.

Obama’s plan for Iraq blasted in Ney York Times guest piece.

Mexico is now deporting more Central Americans than we are.  Maybe we can learn something here.

Three GOP senators are demanding Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials explain how 156 undocumented immigrant criminals “incredibly” managed to become repeat offenders — yet were never deported.   and in a related story Katie Pavlich: ICE Director says no one fired for releasing more than 65,000 criminal aliens.

Bill Whittle’s Afterburner on Death by Dynasties. (a 7 minute video)

Somehow this has missed our president’s eyes. Terrorism around the world increased 35 percent in 2014, according to a State Department report released Friday, blaming the rise on Islamic State extremists in the Middle East and Boko Haram in Africa. If this is not the same as murder in the name of racism or ethnicity, I do not know what is.

While the news focuses on South Carolina the killings in Chicago and other cities goes on.  Granted it was a terrible event, but other killings count. ALL LIVES MATTER, black on black crime is rampant and not being addressed.  In our area it is Hispanics and gang related killings.  ALL LIVES MATTER!

And that leads to  Dr. Carson saying The heart of the matter is not guns.  If you can, read his Facebook post.  He is a man of wisdom. I wish he would stay above the fray of presidential politics and just give us these pearls of his wisdom.

Sidney Blumenthal was being paid $200,000 by David Brock to advise Hillary!!??

The media doesn’t want the public to know about the Obamacare case in the Supreme Court.  And if you want to know about Hillary’s private server and emails you have to listen to Fox News.

These are from the past few days.

This woman is speaking up for Down Syndrome children, one of which is hers.In it she says:”Women are not incubators of socially preferable descendants.”  In my day there were no tests for this.

When Sydney Blumenthal turned over his Clinton related emails they found many more than either she or the State Department had turned over.  Not a surprise.

We are definitely in a cooling climate mode.   Despite the Pope’s political opinion on it.

This came in an email and instead of sending just a link I am linking the whole thing.

Does this explain things on the TPA to you?  I am confused.

CIA released a memo blaming Clinton for bankrupting war on terror ahead of 9/11.

And Allen West says Obama made the greatest blunder in history in Iraq  that is pretty strong for an accusation.

Just received this in an email from Jim Little and as I remember, it sounds just like Truman would say it. 

At the Truman Library and Museum in Independence Missouri an unnamed source sent copies of four telegrams that were between Harry Truman and Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the Surrender Agreement. The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received, not a word has been added or deleted!”

(1) Tokyo,Japan

0800-September 1,1945

To: President Harry S Truman

From: General D A MacArthur

Tomorrow we meet with those yellow bellied bastards and sign the Surrender Documents, any last minute instructions!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

(2) Washington, D C , 1300-September 1, 1945

To: D A MacArthur

From: H S Truman

Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

(3) Tokyo, Japan , 1630-September 1, 1945

To: H S Truman

From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz

Will do, Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean?

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

(4) Washington, D C, 2120-September 1, 1945

To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz

From: H S Truman

Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!

***************************************

Now, with special thanks to friends at the Truman Museum and Harry, you and I finally have a full understanding of what “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS” really means!
