Prayer and Tissue Alert

I pray from the depth of my heart that our election process will be fair and honest so that the people’s choices will enter office, not the choices of corrupt political operatives. Amen.

Disqualified

“Well, it certainly is a disqualifier for me but every voter in this country will make that decision, but it really is remarkable, as I said in our vice presidential debate, if either–either my son or Tim Kaine’s son, both of whom are serving our country as Marines, mishandled classified information the way Hillary Clinton did, they’d be at least court-martialed.”

Chris Matthews surprised me

Hugh Hewitt said, “Ninety-percent plus of Manhattan-Beltway media elites will vote for Hillary Clinton and will applaud her election. That seeps into coverage. It’s what Dan Rather said. News is where you look. Those elites look for news in places other than, for example, the ObamaCare premium hikes or the problems at the FBI.”

When New York Times reporter Yamiche Alcindor laughed at the idea of liberal media bias, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews asked, “Do you know anybody, Yamiche, at The New York Times who`s pro-life?” Alcindor refused to answer the question.

The rights of the unborn

Michigan is one of 38 states that recognize preborn children as homicide victims. Twenty-three of those states extend that recognition to the beginning of pregnancy.

Allegan County [Michigan] Circuit Court Judge Kevin W. Cronin extended the sentence of a man who was convicted of assaulting his pregnant girlfriend because he recognized the preborn child as a second victim.

In May 2014, Samuel Demetrious Ambrose received a minimum of four years for punching his pregnant girlfriend, who was also disabled, and dumping her out of her wheelchair into a ditch, then holding her head underwater. Cronin handed down a sentence three months longer than the recommended guidelines of a crime of this nature. Appeals Court Judge Peter D. O’Connell wrote that Ambrose placed both mother and preborn child “in both danger of death and physical injury.’’

Ambrose was convicted on separate counts of felonious assault and witness tampering and was sentenced to serve his punishment for them consecutively rather than simultaneously, maximizing his time in jail.

Typology

During my morning devotions, I read from the Old Testament, Gospels, and Epistles.  Then, I read a section in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.  It’s my favorite part of the day.  Today, I learned something new:

Pro-Aborts don’t actually give a crap about women’s lives

It is a FACT that Pro-Aborts fight even the most common sense health regulations that are standard for other out-patient clinics, restaurants, and tattoo parlors.

For example, Virginia recently decided that abortion clinics do NOT have to maintain the same quality of care that other ambulatory surgical clinics do.

What a shock (not) that Virginia’s governor, Terry McAuliffe, has accepted almost $1.5 million in campaign donations from the abortion industry.

Pro-Aborts, like Hillary Clinton (who never met a baby killing policy she couldn’t support), know there is zero medical evidence that abortion saves women’s lives.

They go on claiming it does anyway.

I’m guessing they also know the opposite is true, that abortion at any stage is associated with a DECLINE in overall health and an INCREASE in mortality rates among post-abortive women.

For example, a woman who has one abortion is THREE times more likely to commit suicide than a woman who has never been pregnant and SIX times more likely than a woman who carried to term!

Artist paints our national anthem

I’m not feeling too hot.  On Thursday, I decided to walk and push through the Big Shop instead of using an electric cart. I’m happy I got through it without pain, but I think I maybe overdid my energy a bit.  I’m better today than yesterday, which I spent on the couch, so there’s that.

I am delighted with how much muscle tone I’ve gained in my legs and hips from walking the dogs and doing more around the house.  I gained 7 lbs in the one month between doctor visits, but my measurements are all the same except my hips, where I LOST an inch, so it apparently was all muscle!

My bum knee is definitely liking the lighter weight and better muscle support.  It was cold and wet on shopping day, ideal weather for a Bad Knee Day, but I didn’t have a twinge, even with all that walking.  I just got very, very tired. I saw a 3 lb. barbell at the store, so got it to work on my upper body while I’m waiting for web sites to load. It’s purple! 🙂

We also had exciting news yesterday!  Warrior Princess had an ultrasound that showed she is carrying a healthy little boy.  That gives us 4 boy grands and 2 girl grands, which coincidentally is the same distribution both Dearest and I had in our birth families! :O)

If I’m up to it, I’ll come back later in the day and do something else for all y’all.  In the meantime, this video came from a friend to my email.  It’s well worth the time.

Artist Joe Everson (his website is http://www.JoeEverson.com) sings the National Anthem while painting a picture at a Toledo Walleye hockey game. The result is AMAZING!

The First Television Star

Electronic television was invented in the 1920’s, but didn’t become commercially available until about 1948. This electronic marvel would alter the course of history forever. Never before had people been able to witness history as it happened. The coronation of Queen Elizabeth and the assassination of JFK. Man landing on the moon in 1969 and a three hour slow speed chase of a white Bronco. Television is the most powerful and influential media that ever existed.
Careers and fortunes were made. Actors became household names and some were made famous by one role. You know them. Raymond Burr as Perry Mason. Alan Alda as Hawkeye Pierce. Henry Winkler as The Fonz. The list goes on. Some television actors went on to star on the big screen and some movie actors found their place on TV. The first sets were big boxes with a grainy picture that you had to use rabbit ear antennae to focus and you had horizontal and vertical hold controls. One of the kids was the remote and you only had three channels.
Of all the people who became stars, only one could be the first. His name was William Boyd. He started acting in silent movies in the 1920’s (I actually came across one on Turner Classic Movies once). His destiny was sealed when he auditioned and won the lead role in a series of movies based on the character created by Clarence Mulford… Hopalong Cassidy. Between 1949 and 1952 he was the biggest star in the media universe.
From Wikipedia:
Born June 5, 1895
Belmont County, Ohio. U.S.
Died September 12, 1972 (aged 77)

Beginning in 1990, the town of Cambridge, Ohio began having a Hopalong Cassidy Festival to celebrate their favorite son. I was an exhibitor at the toy gun and western memorabilia show they have there every year from 2001 to 2007. Some of the biggest dealers from across the country, people I had only talked to on the phone or through toy ads, with were there. They came from Birmingham, Plymouth Mass., Pasadena Texas, and a man named Quinn, who runs the biggest cap gun show in the country from California. He has tens of thousands of dollars worth of guns to buy and sell. His fifth wife, Grace Bradley Boyd, attended the festivals until the year she died, 2010, on her 97th birthday.

Boyd resumed production[3] in 1946, on lower budgets, and continued through 1948, when “B” westerns were being phased out. Boyd thought Hopalong Cassidy might have a future in television, spent $350,000 to obtain the rights to his old films,[3] and approached the fledgling NBC network. The initial broadcasts were so successful that NBC could not wait for a television series to be produced and edited the feature films to broadcast length.[4] On June 24, 1949, Hopalong Cassidy became the first network Western television series.

The success of the television series made Boyd a star.[3] The Mutual Broadcasting System began broadcasting a radio version, with Andy Clyde (later George MacMichael on Walter Brennan’s ABC sitcom The Real McCoys) as the sidekick, in January 1950; at the end of September, the show moved to CBS Radio, where it ran until 1952.[5]
Mrs. Boyd told us Hoppy sold their car,took out a second mortgage on their house and begged or borrowed every nickle he could from friends in Hollywood.Actors didn’t make much back in those days.

The festival featured all kinds of activities, but meeting Mrs. Hoppy was one of the thrills of my life. She was the epitome of style and class. She would come around and speak to the dealers and I actually talked to her for almost ten minutes. I never accomplished much in my life, but that’s something no one can take away from me.

Here are a few photos from the local paper from one of the festivals:
Note: there are always a number of cowboy impersonators. The only real actor I ever saw was Buck Taylor (Newly from Gunsmoke)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grace_Bradley

The series and character were so popular that Hopalong Cassidy was featured on the cover of national magazines such as Look, Life, and Time.[3] Boyd earned millions as Hopalong ($800,000 in 1950 alone),[3] mostly from merchandise licensing and endorsement deals. In 1950, Hopalong Cassidy was featured on the first lunchbox to bear an image, causing sales for Aladdin Industries to jump from 50,000 to 600,000 in one year. In stores, more than 100 companies in 1950 manufactured $70 million of Hopalong Cassidy products,[3] including children’s dinnerware, pillows, roller skates, soap, wristwatches, and jackknives.[6]

Hoppy had his name or likeness on over 2100 different products from cereal pinbacks to dishes and flatware,lamps,bicycles,bread,dairy products and local banks.
I’ll do another post next week to highlight some of the myriad products he endorsed.
He was the kind of role model we lack today. Every kid imagined being Hoppy, riding on his big white horse, Topper.
It was great to be a kid then and have heroes like him to look up to.

In 10 days America will walk the Green Mile. It will be painful.
I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF DOING THIS POST WHEN A COUPLE YOUNG IDIOTS CANVASSING THE NEIGHBORHOOD FOR THE DEMOCRAT CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESS RANG MY DOORBELL. I THINK THE GIRL WAS READY TO CRY WHEN THEY LEFT.

Feds: 275,000 born to illegals in one year, would fill city the size of Orlando
“In 2014, about 275,000 babies were born to unauthorized-immigrant parents in the U.S., accounting for about 7 percent of all U.S. births, and 32 percent of all U.S. births to foreign-born mothers,” said Pew’s newly released report.

University of Pittsburgh Trump Supporters Attacked on Campus – Display Destroyed
HERE, HAVE A CUP OF ANARCHY
Surely enough, Kerlin and fellow tabling participants were met with remarks by students such as “f*uck the white male patriarchy!” and “I can’t believe you guys are actually people.” Shortly following, students began to behave aggressively.
“A student came up to us and made a claim about how Trump wants to get rid of “his people,” Kirk Breiner, a sophomore and tabling participant told The Pitt Maverick.

Millions of votes already cast point to a Hillary Clinton victory
THE END WAS NEVER REALLY IN DOUBT
The millions of votes that have been cast already in the U.S. presidential election point to an advantage for Hillary Clinton in critical battleground states, as well as signs of strength in traditionally Republican territory.
The strong early-voting turnout by those likely to support Clinton – registered Democrats, minorities, and young people among others – could leave Donald Trump with virtually no path to the 270 electoral votes needed for victory.

UK Reporter Calls CNN “Clinton News Network – Your Coverage Is Totally Biased”
CNN host: That’s CNN, you’re calling us the Clinton News Network.
Katie Hopkins: That’s exactly correct.
CNN host: Why?…
Katie Hopkins: I will say having sat in the Republican convention and having watched your coverage, it is completely biased. And I think Trump is doing a great job. And I think what we saw from him today over… You’ll also find polls that find 70% of individuals find Clinton to be utterly distasteful. I find her abhorrent to look at. Her little smile there does nothing for me.

Sen. Mark Kirk questions opponent’s American heritage in Illinois debate

THIS IS A SURE PICKUP FOR THE DEMOCRATS. THE STATE IS HEAVILY DEMOCRAT (DON’T I KNOW IT) AND KIRK IS NOWHERE NEAR A CONSERVATIVE. HE’S IN THE McCAIN, GRAHAM, COLLINS, AND FLAKE WING OF THE PARTY.
DUCKWORTH’S ONLY QUALIFICATION WAS SHE LOST HER LEGS IN IRAQ. NOTHING ELSE. AT LEAST HER POLITICAL CAREER COST HER SOMETHING, UNLIKE JOHN “LIVESHOT” KERRY.
Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), seeking to unseat GOP Sen. Mark Kirk in Illinois, invoked her family’s military service while answering a debate question.
Kirk was offered a chance to rebut. “I’d forgotten that your parents came all the way from Thailand to serve George Washington,” he said.
Duckworth’s mother, Lamai, is Thai, but her late father, Franklin, was a Marine veteran whose family roots in this country trace to before the American Revolution. Tammy Duckworth was severely wounded in the Iraq War, losing her legs while serving as a helicopter pilot.

Marilyn Mosby would like to prevent cops from opting for bench trials
DAMN CONSTITUTION WROTE BY A BUNCH OF RACIST OLD WHITE MEN WHO HATED BLACKS. RODNEY KING! TRAYVON MARTIN! MICHAEL BROWN!
Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby has found herself on the ropes after a disastrous series of failures during the Freddie Gray trials, but she’s apparently not ready to give up on her efforts to put police officers in jail.
In one measure which would take effect under her plans, police would be severely limited or completely barred from opting for a bench trial rather than a full hearing before a jury

Bill and Hillary’s sleazy road to riches
THEIR GREED IS PATHOLOGICAL. THEY CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH TO SATISFY THEMSELVES.
And in a 2011 memo to the review team, former presidential aide Doug Band openly boasted about how he’d raised millions for the foundation from his business clients — and even more for Bill Clinton personally.
At that point, Teneo had raised $8 million for the foundation and $3 million in paid speeches for Bill. Plus, Band boasted, it had also set up “more than $50 million in for-profit” business deals for the ex-president, with contracts worth $66 million more.
And that doesn’t even include loads of “in-kind” freebies, like vacations and private jets.

Hillary BUSTED Holding Closed Door Meeting with Florida Elections Director in Possible Voter Fraud Scheme
More proof of a RIGGED SYSTEM and likely voter fraud taking place right before our eyes in the critical state of Florida. There have been several reports that Broward County Election Director Brenda Snipes has met with Hillary Clinton behind closed doors and several sources of claim to be coming forward with pictures soon
LYING AND CHEATING COME AS NATURALLY AS BREATHING TO THESE PEOPLE
Anyone with any political knowledge is aware the best chances for Hillary Clinton in Florida come from two specific counties, Broward and Dade. It is not coincidental that both counties continue to be the historic nucleus of multiple voting irregularities.
This year is no different. In a recent series of events Broward County is at the epicenter of another voting malfunction. However, this one might not be a mistake, it might be by design. The essential outline of the current year concern surrounds a scheme to present double voting to benefit Hillary Clinton.

Colin Powell Says He Will Vote For Hillary Clinton

Oh what a shocker. Powell endorsed Obama in 2008, Obama in 2012 and now Hillary Clinton in 2016. Not surprisingly, this jackass still thinks he’s a ‘Republican’ according to the article. He’s about as much a Republican as Harry Reid is.

EVERYTHING HE ACCOMPLISHED WAS DUE TO THE BUSH PRESIDENTS. HE TURNED HIS BACK ON A FELLOW VIETNAM VETERAN BECAUSE OBAMA WAS BLACK. F**K HIM.
Despite Powell’s support for the Democratic presidential nominee in the last three cycles, he insisted in September 2015 that he was still a Republican.
“I’m still a Republican because I believe in a strong defense, because I believe in the entrepreneurial spirit that is so typical of the Republican Party in the past,” Powell said at the time.

Sen. Lindsey Graham ‘Is Best Future Republican Ally,’ Says Dem Strategist
WHY THE SECRECY? EVERYBODY KNOWS GRAHAM IS A BACKSTABBING SELLOUT PRICK.
Democratic strategist Paul Harstad called South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham the “best future Republican ally of the [Obama] administration for the next two years.”
He perhaps shouldn’t directly put a call into Graham — which would probably get out — but perhaps pass the word to invite Graham to call him. Graham is the best future Republican ally of the administration for the next two years, and in a close Senate may provide a critical vote on a number of occasions.”

Pandering Hillary Takes A Backseat To Mooch At NC Rally
LISTEN, GIRLFRIEND,THE NEGROES DON’T LIKE ME. I NEED YOUR HELP. THEY’RE SO STUPID THEY’LL BELIEVE ANYTHING YOU TELL THEM.
Michelle Obama: “Hillary Doesn’t Play”…
Bill nods in approval.

“Seriously, is there anyone more inspiring than Michelle Obama?” Hillary Clinton asked the 11,000 who packed into a basketball arena here, making Clinton’s first joint appearance with Obama the largest indoor event of her entire campaign.
The crowd seemed to agree with the candid assessment. And Clinton spoke first, in a subtle acknowledgment that she was not the main event less than two weeks before Election Day.

Principal brutally beaten by student vows quick return to job
WHITE MAN DISRESPECTED ME ABOUT MY TUNES. THAT CALLS FOR A BEATDOWN.
The principal was beaten Monday by an 18-year-old student, whose lawyer said is acting out because his mother died of a brain aneurysm in his arms last year.
The student, Luis Penzo – who was arraigned on charges of second degree assault and held on $5,000 bail – was in the hallway blasting music from his headphones when Tossman asked him to turn it down.
Penzo not only refused, police say he cold-cocked the administrator and continued to punch him after he was down
Students at the troubled business-themed campus – which houses four different schools – complained the place was out of control.
“They should just shut the school down,” said Dashawn Reid, 15.
She pointed to an arrest on Oct. 7 of a student who came to school stinking of weed and carrying a gun in his backpack.

UT Young Conservatives ‘Affirmative Action Bake Sale’ Draws Protests

SUBTLETY IS LOST ON THESE NEANDERTHALS
Members of the Young Conservatives of Texas at the University of Texas at Austin held an affirmative action bake sale Wednesday. The bake sale, located in the West Mall area of the campus, drew a large crowd of protestors and critics.
In a press release regarding the event, the club explains that they held the bake sale on campus to “bring attention to the absurdity of giving preferential treatment to individuals based on race, ethnicity or gender.”

Bill Clinton’s Ex-Lover Says He Nicknamed Hillary ‘The Warden’
Bill Clinton’s long-time mistress Dolly Kyle candidly spoke about her relationship with the former president, revealing his sex-addiction as well as Hillary’s temper and “shocking” body odor, the Daily Mail reported Wednesday.
Kyle, 68, had a decades-long affair with Bill Clinton before and during his marriage to Hillary. Their relationship suddenly ended in the 1990s after he threatened to “destroy” Kyle if she discussed their extramarital affair with the press.
During Kyle and Bill Clinton’s time together, he often referred to Hillary as “The Warden” and complained that his sex life was “over” after moving in with his future wife.
Bill’s former fling claimed the Clintons’ desire for a child was politically motivated, the Daily Mail reported.

‘He didn’t know the boy didn’t want to be raped’ court throws out migrant child sex charge
PRESIDENT CLINTON WANTS TO BRING ANOTHER HALF MILLION OF THESE ANIMALS HERE.
NOW, DON’T YOU FEEL BETTER?
An Iraqi asylum seeker who confessed to raping a 10-year-old boy in a swimming pool, claiming it was a “sexual emergency”, has had his conviction overturned.
Following the attack, the accused rapist returned to the pool and was practising on the diving board when police arrived, after the 10-year-old raised the alarm with the lifeguard.

DNC Suing RNC Because Trump Claims The Election Is Rigged
HOW DARE THEY ACCUSE US OF CHEATING JUST BECAUSE WE’RE CHEATING? HOW ELSE ARE WE SUPPOSED TO WIN?
The Democratic National Committee has filed a suit in the U.S. District Court in New Jersey against the Republican National Committee because Donald Trump continues to insist that the election is rigged against him. The DNC alleges that the RNC has not done enough to reprimand Trump for claiming that the election is rigged, and seeks to have the court hold the committee in civil contempt as well as levy sanctions.
