So Much Stuff, So Little Space

It was a difficult decision where to begin, since the world is spinning so quickly these days. So I decided to post a memorial for an incredible man and musician who made an indelible mark on America.

Glen Campbell, hit singer and guitarist, dead at 81


I REMEMBER MY GRANDMOTHER LOVED WATCHING THE VARIETY SHOW HE HAD AS A REPLACEMENT ONE SUMMER.

Glen Campbell, the upbeat guitarist from Delight, Arkansas, whose smooth vocals and down-home manner made him a mainstay of music and television for decades, has died, his family announced on Facebook on Tuesday. He was 81.

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and legendary singer and guitarist, Glen Travis Campbell … following his long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease,” a Facebook statement said.

Campbell is best remembered for a string of country-inflected hits that ran from the mid-’60s to the late ’80s: “Gentle on My Mind,” “Rhinestone Cowboy,” “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Galveston,” “Southern Nights” and “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” among them.

BY THE NUMBERS: President Trump’s Historic First 200 Days – Promises Kept and Records Broken

YOU’LL NEVER HEAR A WORD OF THIS ON CNN.

Government Assistance — Food Stamps

  • More than 1.1 million fewer Americans on food stamps under President Trump.

Jobs

  • According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics President Trump added a projected 1,290,000 jobs in his first 200 days (January through July 2017.) President Obama on the other hand lost more than (4,154,000) million jobs in his first 200 days.

Inflation

  • According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics the US inflation rate decreased to an eight month low in June to 1.6%. This is in part due to President Trump’s energy policies that are helping average Americans in their pocket books with cheaper gas and electricity. The rate has not yet been reported for July. (Under Obama the inflation rate sank to a scary -2.1% by July of 2009.)

Housing

  • Sales are red-hot in the US right now. In 2011, houses for sale were on the market an average 84 days. This year, it’s just 45 days.

Regulations

  • One of the first things that President Trump did in office was to reduce the number or burdensome regulations put in place during the Obama era. Regulations cost Americans and American companies money to implement and maintain. Reducing or halting regulations allows companies to spend their money on more prudent money making areas.

After the Coup, What Then?

EXCELLENT READ BY PAT BUCHANAN

If this city brings Trump down, will the rest of America rejoice?

What will be the reaction out there in fly-over country, that land where the “deplorables” dwell who produce the soldiers to fight our wars? Will they toast the “free press” that brought down the president they elected, and in whom they had placed so much hope?

My guess: The reaction will be one of bitterness, cynicism, despair, a sense that the fix is in, that no matter what we do, they will not let us win.

This is a collaborative enterprise, where everyone protects everyone else’s sources, because all have the same goal: the dumping of Trump. If that requires collusion with criminals, so be it.

Deep State Teams with Fake News: Email Evidence Proves New York Times Soliciting Anti-Trump Bureaucracy Leakers
Emails from a reporter for the New York Times to government employees obtained exclusively by Breitbart News demonstrate that the newspaper’s employees are not just on the receiving end of leaks, but are actually soliciting government employees to become leakers. What’s more, the emails demonstrate the Times colluded with the president of the government union to encourage and solicit these leaks—something that may become highly problematic for both institutions.

Mueller, several team members gave up million-dollar jobs to work on special counsel investigation
LET’S ALL FEEL BAD FOR THESE SLIMY WEASELS.

Mueller’s public financial disclosure — along with those of seven members of his team — was released after a request from The Washington Post. The document offers a glimpse into who the special counsel and the lawyers he has hired have worked for, and where they have made and invested their money.

    Trump Rolls Back Restrictions After Obama Regulated 100,000 Miles To Protect A Bird
    THANK YOU,PRESIDENT TRUMP

    FACT:OBAMA COULDN’T GIVE TWO SHITS ABOUT THE SAGE GROUSE
    IT WAS AN EXCUSE TO GRAB HUGE CHUNKS OF LAND TO HURT RANCHERS AND STOP OIL EXPLORATION
    The Department of the Interior released a revised version of a 2015 conservation plan Monday, rolling back federal land use regulations on more than 100,000 square miles of western land controlled by the Bureau of Land Management.

    Former President Barack Obama’s administration implemented the original plan to reverse declining sage grouse numbers and keep the bird from being listed as “endangered” under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).

    School: AP and Honors classes will be decided by skin color, not intelligence

    A parent forwarded me a copy of the letter sent from John Handley High School in Winchester.

    “Through our collective work, advanced classes such as AP and Honors will have proportional representation,” read the letter. “Proportional representation is 40% White, 35% Hispanic, 12% African American, 10% mixed race.”

    The letter went on to explain that public schools across the country “continue to see outcomes that are disproportionate by race and social class.”

      This makes me so damn angry. Why can’t students be rated on merit! Now the AP classes will not be AP anymore. THey will have lower standards so everyone has a fair chance? No longer advanced placement. Now it will stand for AdvancedProgressives.

      Maybe, just MAYBE, the disproportion is due to the fact that the ghetto culture ACTIVELY DISCOURAGES kids from even trying to achieve anything academically!

    There’s now a TRANSGENDER summer day camp for preschoolers!

    Gender specialists say the camp’s growth reflects what they are seeing in gender clinics nationwide: increasing numbers of children coming out as transgender at young ages. They credit the rise to greater openness and awareness of LGBT issues and parents tuning in earlier when a child shows signs of gender dysphoria, or distress about their gender.

    2018 Midterms: The Democrats Are About To Crash Into Their Own Geographic Wall

    The Democratic Party is regional. It’s mostly confined to the urban areas and states that touch salt water. That spells certain doom for a healthy party that’s incapable of winning rural areas. It’s not impossible. They’ve done it before, though it was before the toxic ethos of political correctness and identity politics were thrown into the mix. Now, the party’s hard left turn on immigration and abortion is starting to make moderate to right-leaning Democrats, ones who can win in these regions, difficult to find, let alone support.

    CNN Commentator: People Didn’t Believe Bill Clinton “Just Because of the Party”

    No mention of Monica: “polarization” caused Bill Clinton not to be believed

    IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE FACT HE’S A SOCIOPATH AND A RAPIST;NAH,COULDN’T BE

    Because Bill Clinton in the early ’90s was the start of what we now know as the modern era of polarization, where people just because of the party, just because they’re never going to believe anything the guy says or like anything that he wants to do, are going to oppose him.”

    This kind of blatant disregard for reality is why people don’t believe . . . CNN.

    First on Breitbart: Alabama GOP U.S. Senate Hopeful Roy Moore Hits Mitch McConnell’s ‘DC Slime Machine’ in New Ad

    THIS IS ONE OF THOSE STATES WHERE IF ONE CANDIDATE DOESN’T GET 50%+,THEY HAVE A RUNOFF.
    JUDGE MOORE LEADS WITH ABOUT 30% AND MO BROOKS,ANOTHER CONSERVATIVE AND LUTHER STRANGE,McCONNELL’S HANDPICKED RUBBER STAMP ARE CLOSE IN THE POLLS
    Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, a candidate in next week’s Republican special election primary, is out with a new ad hitting Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his “DC slime machine.”
    The 30-second spot from Moore’s campaign is apparently a response to the McConnell-controlled Senate Leadership Fund, which is reportedly willing to spend up t0 $8 million to boost one of Moore’s opponents, Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL).

    The ad targets McConnell’s “slime machine” for failing to repeal Obamacare and “for bearing witness” against Moore.

    ABC: Of course we didn’t ax Tim Allen over his conservative views

    IF IT WASN’T POLITICS MAXINE WATERS WAS A VIRGIN BIRTH
    Politics had absolutely nothing to do with it,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey told the Television Critics Association press tour in Los Angeles
    Excuse me, but did you just say that you couldn’t find room in the schedule for it? Last Man Standing wasn’t just a little popular. It was pulling down a 1.7 share with more than 8 million viewers on a Friday night. (People who follow the industry will tell you that Friday night is usually a dead zone for ratings and a set of time slots where shows go to die.) It wasn’t just doing okay… it was a ratings machine for that time slot.

    3 teens in stolen SUV killed in crash near St. Petersburg, investigators say
    WHAT WAS THE FIRST THING THAT POPPED INTO YOUR MIND?
    YOU WERE SPOT ON


    Pinellas County authorities said three teenagers — one 14-year-old and two 16-year-olds — stole a sport utility vehicle, sped away from officers and died in a fiery, violent crash early Sunday morning.

    Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said in a news conference Sunday morning that a fourth teen in the SUV, who is 14, survived and is hospitalized. He said all the teens all had criminal histories — including one who had gotten out of jail on July 31.

    Among the deceased: 16-year-olds Keontae Brown and Dejarae Thomas, and 14-year-old Jimmie Goshey.

    North Korea Says Seriously Considering Plan to Strike Guam

    NEWS FLASH FOR THAT FAT LITTLE PUNK:
    DON’T MAKE TRUMP ANGRY…YOU WOULDN’T LIKE HIM WHEN HE’S ANGRY
    HE’S NOT A GUTLESS PRICK LIKE OBAMA IS
    A spokesman for the Korean People’s Army, in a statement carried by the North’s state-run KCNA news agency, said the strike plan will be “put into practice in a multi-current and consecutive way any moment” once leader Kim Jong Un makes a decision.

    In another statement citing a different military spokesman, North Korea also said it could carry out a pre-emptive operation if the United States showed signs of provocation.

    Trump Warns North Korea Will Be Met With ‘Fire and Fury’ If Threatens U.S.

    Earlier Pyongyang said it was ready to give Washington a “severe lesson” with its strategic nuclear force in response to any U.S. military action.

    Washington has warned it is ready to use force if need be to stop North Korea’s ballistic missile and nuclear programs but that it prefers global diplomatic action, including sanctions.

    I don’t believe that Pat Buchanan is right about those of us in flyover rollover and giving up.
    If they oust Trump, it will be total upheaval, and we will have civil war, just as the left is planning.
    I am not even a Trump fan, but if they win this witch hunt, I will not go silently.
