Things You’ll Never See in the Mainstream Media

I haven’t watched an episode of Law & Order SVU in years. While channel surfing last night, I came across it last night for just about two minutes. The episode was called “Fake News.” They were confronting a blogger who said one man’s voice is as powerful as anybody else’s. They started to claim yeah, but the mainstream media tell the truth. Then I remembered why I quit watching this show. Every damn week was another example of bashing republicans and our values. [CtH: Ditto me.]

They would rather turn in their American Express gold cards than give Trump credit for anything. This is the same bunch that had to twist the truth beyond recognition by completely ignoring the facts about what a dickhead Obama was.

Foxconn to build $10B plant in Wisconsin employing up to 13,000

In what’s being called the largest economic development project in state history, Taiwanese electronics giant Foxconn plans to build a $10 billion plant in Wisconsin that would create liquid-crystal display panels and employ as many as 13,000 people.
The planned Wisconsin plant is expected to open in 2020 and be part of a 20 million-square-foot campus on at least 1,000 acres — a location Gov. Scott Walker has dubbed “Wisconn Valley.”
The state would offer $3 billion in economic incentives, Walker said.


WINNING! Walmart Unveils Manufacturing Plan to Create 1.5 MILLION New AMERICAN Jobs

While the media is obsessing over President Trump’s tweets and so-called Russia collusion, the U.S. economy is growing stronger and stronger. Today, Walmart announced it is aiming to create a whopping 1.5 million manufacturing jobs in the United States.

Walmart Inc. (WMT) met with government and business leaders in Washington on Wednesday to unveil a plan to spur growth in domestic manufacturing efforts that company executives say will create an estimated 1.5 million new jobs in the United States.
The meeting included a discussion with key individuals on both sides of the aisle about the biggest challenges the U.S. manufacturing sector currently faces. Using an analysis by the Boston Consulting Group and Walmart sourcing data, the company crafted a 10-point plan to “recapture” an estimated $300 billion in imported consumer goods, stoking job growth in the process.


Amazon seeks to fill 50,000 warehouse jobs, including hundreds in Kent

The e-commerce giant says next Wednesday it will welcome applicants at 10 of its warehouses, including the one in Kent, where it plans to hire hundreds. Amazon says it will make “thousands” of job offers on the spot.
The move underscores the continued rapid growth of Amazon’s fulfillment operations. The company has invested billions building new facilities to catch up with increasing customer demand for the products sold on its website, and to keep its promises of ever-quicker delivery.
Amazon says that most of the of the jobs available are full time and entail picking, packing and shipping customer orders. Some 10,000 of the opportunities on offer are part-time roles at sorting centers, smaller facilities that sift through packages shipped from Amazon’s warehouses and send them to local post offices.


How bad has Trump Derangement Syndrome gotten? MSNBC just reached #1 in prime time
And now, with outrage (or fauxrage in many cases) being the top menu item on the TV menu, MSNBC seems to be reaping the rewards. And if this isn’t a blip on the radar, it’s truly phenomenal. For the first time in the network’s entire history, they finished the week number one in total viewership in prime time, not just among the cable news channels, but for all cable networks.

[CtH: This is really depressing!]


SCREAMING FAR LEFT PROTEST MOB Disrupts US Senate Vote on Obamacare

When the vote was announced far left protesters began screaming loudly, “Kill the Bill, Don’t Kill Us!”  It took the Sergeant of Arms and federal officers SEVERAL MINUTES to remove the far left mob.  This was unprecedented.

A long history of violence among U.S. liberals
Recently on HBO’s Real Time, Bill Maher had this to say about the attack on Republican legislators: “We would never really think this would happen on the left. We think of the right as the people who pick up guns and do crazy things like this.”
And that’s just what they think. Liberals are peaceful and conservatives are violent. Even those who take pride in their political incorrectness repeat it. But you don’t have to be an American historian to know how little it holds up to the facts.


Trump Mocks ‘Young’ Protester: ‘Going Home To Mommy’
During Trump’s remarks at the Ohio rally — a state he won during the election — a protester stood up in the crowd with a large Soviet flag, and the crowd began pointing to the protester.
“If you don’t point no one’s gonna even know he’s here,” Trump mocked. “Weak voice. Weak voice.”
An attendee behind the protester ripped the flag out of his hands and the protester was dragged out of the event by police.
“Boy, he’s a young one, he’s going back home to mommy,” Trump said as the crowd cheered and laughed. “Boy, he’s in trouble. He’s in trouble.”

How many?

Trans in military

A survey that asked, “Have you ever been a member of the armed forces?” received 6,546 “valid responses.” From that, the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality inexplicably concluded that “approximately 15,500 transgender individuals are serving on active duty or in the Guard or Reserve forces.” IOW, 1.2 percent.

Another study, one that was sponsored by the military, estimated that “the number of transgender individuals currently serving in the active component of the U.S. military at between 1,320 and 6,630 out of a total of about 1.3 million service members.” IOW, between 0.1 and 0.5 percent.

The first number makes no sense, given that the estimated trans population in America is only around 0.3 percent.

I’m inclined to believe in the lowest end of the estimates. For one thing, the highest figure for active duty was inappropriately extrapolated from a sample that included any past service. For another, I just find it difficult to believe that the average transsexual would want the military life.

All That Matters

I absolutely 100% support President Trump’s recent announcement that trannies will be banned from military service. Period.

I tried to enlist in the Army once upon a long time ago. I never got past the first interview, because I needed allergy shots. The recruiter said a soldier who needed shots just to function was a liability in a war zone. I thought it was a very fair point.

And I thought of it again when my uniformed kids who qualified got free laser surgery.  So when the Obama administration got all fuzzy-wuzzy about trannies in the military, I was appalled.

The idea that taxpayers should foot the huge bill for all the counseling, hormones, surgery, and down time for a soldier to change genders made zero sense to me. Plus, they need hormone treatments daily! I just needed an allergy shot every other week. Sheesh.

2017_07 26 All that matters tweet

J.R. Saltzman’s comments support my own feelings. His full string of tweets are at the Twitchy link posted below.

2017_07 26 Saltzman tweets

As for the trannies who say they have been or are in the military … the nation does NOT owe you a military career.  If you’re such an overwhelmingly super duper asset that some CO is willing to put up with your gender issues, then God bless you.  Otherwise, you can and should be replaced.

If you want to let President Trump you support his decision, go here to sign the petition.

Sleep Apnea Blues

Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is interrupted during sleep. People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times. This means the brain — and the rest of the body — may not get enough oxygen.

When I spent 9 days in the hospital it was discovered I had severe sleep apnea. I knew there was something wrong for years but I didn’t have the medical coverage to get tested for it. Having had a quadruple bypass in 2004, I was in the cardio unit and hooked up to an EKG. It was discovered that the reason I would suffer periodic blackouts was that my heart would literally stop for from 2-8 seconds. I use a VPAP (different from a CPAP) machine now and cannot sleep without it. It is difficult for me to go more than a few hours without sleep. As such, I spend a large part of the day sleeping and have trouble sleeping at night. Such was the case today, so I figured I’d get an early start on the babbling.

It is no secret that the democrats loathe the military and sometimes go out of their way to harm them. CtH has stated here that those serving, like her warriors, were miserable under the dictates of Barack H. Obama. The mightiest fighting force in the world was reduced to an insipid social experiment. All that ended today and the results were predictable. Unlike his predecessor, Trump LISTENS to the generals who conduct the actual operations.

Pres. Trump bars transgender individuals from US armed forces

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump abruptly declared a ban Wednesday on transgender troops serving anywhere in the U.S. military, catching the Pentagon flat-footed and unable to explain what it called President Trump’s “guidance.” His proclamation, on Twitter rather than any formal announcement, drew bipartisan denunciations and threw currently serving transgender soldiers into limbo.
“Please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military,” the commander in chief tweeted.

GOP senators break with Trump over transgender troop ban
Multiple Republican senators broke with President Trump on Wednesday after he announced on Twitter that transgender troops would be banned from serving in the military.
In separate statements, GOP Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Joni Ernst (Iowa), Richard Shelby (Ala.) and Orrin Hatch (Utah) all criticized Trump for his decision that Obama-era rules allowing transgender troops to serve would be reversed.
McCain, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, ripped the call and said that Trump shouldn’t be making policy announcements via tweet.


Celebrities Melt Down over Trump’s Transgender Military Policy: ‘You Just Pissed Off the Wrong Community’

The news spurred some stars to viciously attack the president, with some calling Trump a cruel bigot.
Star Trek actor and gay activist George Takei sent what appeared to be a threat to Trump, warning that he “just pissed off the wrong community” and said the president “will regret” this action.
Director Paul Feig called Trump’s decision “disgraceful,” while noted Trump-basher and actor Rob Reiner called the president a “hateful human being.”
Below is a roundup of the rage Hollywood stars sent toward President Trump in the wake of his announcement.

Just 23 Percent Of Voters Say Trans Enlistment Is Good For The Military
A Rasmussen survey taken last month found that just 23 percent of likely voters think the decision to allow openly transgender people to serve — a decision made by the Obama administration — is good for the military. Just under one-third of likely voters — 31 percent — think it’s bad for the military to allow openly transgender soldiers to serve, while another 38 percent thought it would have no impact.
President Trump defended the ban on the grounds that military policies should be oriented towards what’s best for winning wars.
“Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail,” he explained on Twitter Wednesday morning.

Combat Veteran: War Is No Place For The Gender Confused
In a tweet series, Salzman recounted his experiences in Iraq in 2006, when he was stationed at an isolated firebase in the blazing heat and experienced constant stress from the intense nature of his job.
“Everyday was Groundhog Day,” Salzman tweeted. “Wake up and do the same patrols, the same shifts, every single day. It was so damn hot. 150° in the gun trucks.”
“The stress of being out there and doing the same job every single day eats away at you,” Salzman said. “The younger guys had problems with that overtime.”
“After stepping on each other’s nuts living in the same can for five months, guys were at each other’s throats,” Salzman added. “The stress made it worse.”
