Bernie, Bernie, Bernie, you can do better than this: Tripped up by a socialism in South America question.

IBM Mainframes and 8′ Floppy Discs Power US Nuclear Arsenal I hope PC magazine isn’t giving away state secrets, (sarcasm) but really this is outdated.  This article explains the reasoning or at least excuses it. Still, there is a major reason — other than simply being behind the times — for the military’s continued use of floppies: Sometimes, it says, low-tech is safer tech.

The Washington Post Editorial Board today: Clinton’s Inexusable, willful disregard for the rules. I’ve been reading and watching TV shows this morning and the Hillary spokespeople are trying to spin this as nothing, but I have yet to see one of the newscasters who are grilling them to concede it is nothing they are telling them it is a big deal. (paraphrasing) They are all taking it seriously.  This is just one of them.

However, the Washington Post balanced it with thisHow Much does Trump LIe?

I love this headline Trump Befuddles the Political Industrial Complex, I think that describes it precisely.

The Crisis of Scientific Credibility.  Be sure to watch the video at this link from the article.  It is long, but well worth watching.

Half the Puzzle, from my favorite Richard Fernandez.  He always has a good take on current world events.

I hate to link to the Washington Examiner because whatever the story is it always has a video that starts up.  Just click that thing off and read this story of Terry McAuliffe admitting he met with that Chinese donor.  You remember Terry, he is the one who helped Clinton pardon all those people. 

The shoe is on the other foot when two police officers sue the Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby for slander.

Do you think this will help or hurt? Wells Fargo launches 3% down payment mortgage. For low to moderate income people.

Conflict of interest disclosure reports filed by top federal officials were removed from public view by the Obama administration in recent months, a move that government transparency and accountability advocates condemn as a major setback.  How crazy is that?  If any Republican had done this they would have been lynched by the media. Come to think of it, they were anyway.

America has a cheese problem, we have too much of it

This is not good. Hundreds of the dead have voted in California.  I doubt  they were zombies.  CBS2 compared millions of voting records from the California Secretary of State’s office with death records from the Social Security Administration and found hundreds of so-called dead voters.

Terry MacAuliffe, a true Clinton insider, is tarred by the same brush, that is he accepts the same illegal campaign funds, so he has tarred himself.  I know, he is just being investigated, but do you have any doubts?

If there was any doubt the Egyptian Air disaster was terrorism, this should remove it.  That same plane was once tagged with graffiti saying, “We will take this plane down.”

The IRS chief is too busy to appear at his impeachment hearing.  Well, he just doesn’t have time to prepare, he says.  He just returned from a trip to China meeting with 45 over tax officials from around the world.  ONE word, WHY???

From Lucianne.com: The Obama administration has admitted 499 Syrian refugees so far this month, with no Christians among them.

The Democrats are apparently feeling the Bern.  They are giving him a say on the platform.  This is good news for him, bad news for conservatives. Look who he has picked for the committee.  Top Bernie Sanders supporters Dr. Cornel West and Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) will be among those on the Democratic Party’s important Platform Drafting Committee after the Vermont senator won a key concession as he looks to leave his mark on the party’s platform.[…] Along with West and Ellison, Sanders supporters on the committee are author Bill McKibben, Arab American Institute head James Zogby and Native American activist Deborah Parker. 

If you, the reader, haven’t grasped this, I hope this explains what is going on.  It isn’t about bathrooms, it’s about what we think. The left is advancing a cultural revolution of radical egalitarianism, creating a new cultural hegemony of which the Great Bathroom War of 2016 is but the most recent element.

 Facebook has admitted we know bias when we see it. Facebook also acknowledged that rogue employees may have unintentionally discriminated against conservative stories or even acted with malice in “isolated improper actions.”

Washington DC has had its coolest May since 1882. Hmmm… and that wasn’t even Hmmm… and that wasn’t even the year without a summer . Let’s see now, we’ve had a volcano or two erupt, (36 so far this year) and the sunspots…. what sunpots?  See, there were some.

Of the top ten stories shown on the Washington Post home website, FIVE are denigrating Trump.  I’m not reading and not linking them.  When they come up with something we haven’t seen before I might. It’s not that I’m all in for Trump, it is just that as predicted, once he was the presumed nominee all publicity would be against him. So I’m not going there.

More PC edicts from Obama.  Be Careful the word police might getcha!  Just how many new regulations from Obama: 20, 642

And this IRS employee plays follow the leader.  “A self-identified IRS employee admitted he would go after, target and try to end conservative groups who wanted to abolish the IRS, to Cleta Mitchell, an attorney representing those groups, on a Washington Journal segment on C-SPAN.”  I am just shaking my head after listening to the video.  This guy should be fired.

Bill Clinton upset NATO allies in a broadly unreported gaffe accusing Poland and Hungary of thinking “democracy is too much trouble” and wanting to have an “authoritarian dictatorship.”  they’ve realized he is a  mouthpiece for George Soros.

Taking a private jet to claim an environmental award is really the height of irony. From Cannes to NYC and back to Cannes.  Oh, the hypocrisy.

The Algorithms on Facebook and how they are, and can be, slanted by the programmers.  Before there was any talk of bias the Washington Post ran this story almost a year ago.

Granted this comes from a right wing news site, I suspect it to be true. Feds Divert MILLIONS To ‘Slush Fund’ That Fuels These Liberal Activist Groups I believe it because of all the money I know to be funneled through the unions and back to the Democrats. And because of sstories like this: A group the White House recently identified as a key surrogate in selling the Iran nuclear deal gave National Public Radio $100,000 last year to help it report on the pact and related issues, according to the group’s annual report. It also funded reporters and partnerships with other news outlets.” Be sure you read this last story, and if you have time read this one, or read it if you  don’t have time for the 2nd one.

Greeting Slaves – by Richard Fernandez who says, “We expect revolutionaries to be indifferent to money.  Yet in reality the Left thinks about nothing but money as the Venezuelan socialists who have stole $350 billion from the  treasury according to the Basel Institute on Governance should have proved to the world. 

The federal government wasted more than $100 billion on overpayments last year.

Does Obama’s troubled childhood explain his bathroom edict?  I personally think it explains a lot.  It explains why he hates America and see her as an oppressor, a colonialist country, and a racist country.

Target- What is wrong with you, what are you thinking? They are suing a man who saved a girl who was being stabbed.

Uh oh, there is a whistle blower on that Nevada convention story.  She says she watched Clinton steal Nevada.

The media is trying to make Bill Clinton’s sex scandals go away.

A Federal Judge in Texas tells the DOJ to take Ethics classes. Do you think they will?  Hanen’s order minced no words.

I find it hard to believe Trump has received more favorable coverage than Clinton when so much that could be reported on her and the Clinton foundation has gone unreported.

This is just about as ridiculous as it gets, but unfortunately it will probably get worse. Greeting customers as “Mr.” or “Mrs.” — or even not using the pronoun “ze” or “zir” — could prove costly for New York City businesses under rules drafted by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s bureaucrats.

Are Republicans interested in what Republican lawmakers are doing? Are they even getting news of what they are doing. Is Trump coverage trumping everything?

There is more to the edict than just bathrooms, in fact it is a dictatorial directive on healthcare, too.  And in the directive explanation to colleagues they are told to exclude parents and let the officials handle the children’s needs.  Apparently CNN is surprised the bathroom edict cause a backlash.  This just gets worse and worse.

The Cruel Compassion of Transgender Acceptance As the great aunt of a transgendered person I cannot tell you how conflicted I am on this issue.  In my nephew’s case he was born with a  birth defect, one that showed him to be male, but he never had the genes or the hormones to become a male. So he was bullied and abused at school because he was definitely different.  When he got out on his own he took steps to have female hormones and become at least what looked like a woman, because it was too late to become a man.  Now, I don’t know how many of these TG people are like him, I know this happens, but I don’t think it is nearly as frequent as some would have you believe. From what I am reading many of them “feel” they are different, it is an emotional feeling, not a physical happening.  As for the bathrooms, many places already have the answer, the family bathroom. The one where fathers can take their babies, sons and daughters and mothers can do the same.  They are for individual use, they have locks on the doors, and no one knows which sex is in there. (I hate the word gender for a biological term.)
