4 Pete’s Sake…10/18/17

I can’t take credit for the title. I’m not due to have an original thought for almost 3 weeks yet. It’s from one of my dearest cyber friends who goes way back with me. I won’t call her old, because she’s not as old as I am. Of course, neither is dirt, but that’s another story.

I don’t know if anyone can truly appreciate the cold, unfeeling beast that was almost our president. Being the smartest people around (after all, you come here first), you’ve no doubt heard about the uranium deal she made with Putin. What must be understood is that when Obama made her SOS it served a twofold purpose…. it got her out of the Senate and gave her a chance to make hundreds of millions selling future access to the White House where she fully intended to be living by now. More and more is coming out about this travesty and it’s not pretty.

Team Obama’s stunning cover-up of Russian crimes
It turns out the Obama administration knew the Russians were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, and extortion in order to gain control of US atomic resources — yet still OK’d that 2010 deal to give Moscow control of one-fifth of America’s uranium. This reeks.

Peter Schweizer got onto part of the scandal in his 2015 book, “Clinton Cash”: the gifts of $145 million to the Clinton Foundation, and the $500,000 fee to Bill for a single speech, by individuals involved in a deal that required Hillary Clinton’s approval.

Hillary Clinton, again, sat on a key government body that had to approve the deal — though she now claims she had no role in a deal with profound national-security implications, and during the campaign called the payments a coincidence.

There’s more: Until September 2013, the FBI director was Robert Mueller — who’s now the special counsel probing Russian meddling in the 2016 election. It’s hard to see how he can be trusted in that job unless he explains what he knew about this Obama-era coverup.

Russian Bribery Scheme Included Laundering Cash in Briefcases and Delivering Cash in Yellow Envelopes

All Russian roads lead to Hillary Clinton.
Nine shareholders in Uranium One just happened to provide more than $145 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation in the run-up to State Department approval.  The Clintons took the cash from Uranium One officials before the deal was approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department. The Clintons hid the donations which is a clear violation of the Memorandum of Understanding Hillary Clinton signed with the Obama administration wherein she promised and agreed to publicly disclose all donations during her tenure as Secretary of State

Hannity’s Best Ever Monologue: ‘Hillary Clinton and Her Husband Sold Out America to the Russians’

“Tonight, with this new evidence, what we have discovered is that the evidence against the Clintons is overwhelming, it is incontrovertible,” Hannity continued. “Hillary Clinton and her husband sold out America to the Russians while millions of dollars flowed to their family foundation. And in the process, Clinton created a massive national security risk for every man, woman, and child — giving Vladimir Putin control over American uranium.”

Clinton Admits ‘Perhaps’ She Could Have Done Better Reassuring White Voters

Clinton said that while she won most of the minority vote during the 2016 election, she could have done a better job at reassuring the fears of white voters and women while talking with an Economists podcast Tuesday.

Michelle Lyons Cossar, who snapped the picture, wrote:

“Standing for the National Anthem at the Old Town Waterville football game today and from behind the stands we hear, ‘Hey, look! They aren’t kneeling.’ When I turn to see who said it, this is what I saw…three men roofing a house and respecting the flag. #classyroofers #nokneelinginWaterville”

2017_10 17 Roofers stand for anthem

One of the men told Fox News that they weren’t aware that a picture was taken. They stood for the anthem playing at the nearby football field, because it was the “right thing to do.”

This from Twitchy: “We always love it when the Left tries to create a hashtag on Twitter attacking, trolling and slamming the Right. Like clockwork, Conservatives, and Repubs hijack the tag and make it somehow a joke on the Left.”

This Week in the NFL

First this:

Then this:

2017_10 16 NFL plantation by Terrell

There are two very simple reasons why professional football has been voted America’s Least Favorite Sport:

  1. We love our nation, the values for which it stands, and those who protect and defend those values.
  2. We aren’t stupid.

Happy Tuesday

Continuing my unbroken string of useless, inane, and pointless regurgitation of news of no particular import.

Waters’ Campaign Wrote Off Over $10,000 Spent on ‘Hamilton’ Tickets as Fundraising

44 years … 44 long years she’s been getting away with this because her voters only care that she’s black.

[CtH: Methinks the real power behind her throne (Soros et al.?) only care that she’s greedy and stupid and easy to control.]

The House campaign committee Citizens for Waters paid $10,747.15 for the tickets for the popular Broadway show on Aug. 26, according to a Federal Election Commission report of receipts and disbursements.

Ahead of Halloween, universities nationwide tell students what not to wear
“Unacceptable costumes” listed on a University of St. Thomas diversity flier are “wearing Native American headdresses, dressing up as a ‘Mexican’ by wearing a sombrero, dressing as a ‘geisha,’ any form of blackface.”
“Cultural appropriation is defined as ‘the act of taking intellectual and cultural expressions from a culture that is not your own, without showing that you understand or respect the culture,’” explains a University of St. Thomas diversity memo to students.

[CtH: They’re very, very selective about whose culture is inviolable, so I’m guessing they don’t have anything in there about dressing up as an Irish leprechaun, an Italian mobster, a German Nazi, etc. etc. ]

George Lopez Booed For Anti-Trump Jokes At Charity Event

According to a person at the event, the CEO of Liberty Media, Greg Maffei, asked Lopez “nicely to stop making Trump jokes … George doesn’t, continues, gets booed.”
“Thank you for changing my opinion on old white men, but that doesn’t change the way I feel about orange men,” Lopez responded to the request.


Video posted Saturday on YouTube shows the comedian apologizing for “bringing politics to an event.” Then slams the audience for their “white privilege.”
“Listen, it’s about the kids,” he added. “I apologize for bringing politics to an event. This is America–it still is. So I apologize to your white privilege, but yes I’m sorry. If I was a minority in Denver I would be upset too.”


[CtH: “White privilege” now means having the sacred right to shut up while your “betters” bully you.  Gee, thanks, SJWs!  It’s just what I always wanted!  Not.]

McCain makes speech blasting ‘half-baked’ nationalism


The former POW and Arizona Republican called the United States “the last best hope on earth” while giving an acceptance speech for the National Constitution Center’s Liberty Medal, according to Politico.
While not mentioning President Trump by name, McCain’s speech was a sharp contrast to Trump’s habits of shunning international institutions such as NATO and the United Nations.


[CtH: If half of what his fellow POWs say about him is true, then he’d know ALL ABOUT half-baked patriotism.]

Four GOP Senators Standing in the Way of Progress


Four Republican senators hold and have held our country in their hands for most of this year by themselves. They obstruct progress by wielding far too much power than their positions and number merit. They are Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Rand Paul of Kentucky, and John McCain of Arizona.

These four prevented healthcare reform and they now stand in the way of tax reform.

Brigitte Gabriel: ‘Refugee Resettlement’ is ‘About Supplying Cheap Labor’ at U.S. Taxpayer Expense

“Here’s what I mean by that: Most refugees are on some type of welfare and that makes anyone who employs them, any company that employs them, eligible for the federal Work Opportunity Tax Credit. An employer has a greater incentive to hire a refugee because the salary is subsidized by the government, than hiring a good, hard-working American who is looking for a job.”

Seriously? Hillary Clinton Says She Was “Running Down Stairs in Heels With Cup of Coffee” When She Broke Toe
Hillary Clinton canceled her interview with the BBC today.  She said, “I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards. I tried to get up and it really hurt. I’ve broken my toe. I’ve received excellent care from your excellent health service.”
Seriously?  Does anyone believe that?

Judge REFUSES to dismiss, says Menendez case going to JURY TRIAL!


After raising U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez’s hopes last week, a federal judge crushed them on Monday morning.
U.S. District Court Judge William Walls refused to toss any of the 18 charges in the corruption case against U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez, despite last week casting doubt on a legal theory that’s at the heart of the prosecution’s case.

Deal for Bowe Bergdahl looks worse and worse

To garner sympathy from the sentencing judge, Bergdahl’s defense team is expected to play up his alleged mental health problems, including what they claim is paranoia and schizophrenia.
However, Army shrinks found Bergdahl does not suffer from psychological problems that would prevent him from standing trial. And last month, Bergdahl’s lawyers failed to produce for prosecutors mental health records and other evidence detailing any serious condition.

[CtH: SUCH a SHAME that his conviction will come too late for BHO to pardon him. NOT.]

EPA Chief Scott Pruitt Ends ‘Abusive’ Obama ‘Sue & Settle’ Policy

Under previous administrations, particularly the Obama administration, special interest environmental groups such as the Sierra Club used lawsuits to force the EPA and other federal agencies to issue regulations that advance their climate change agenda. Those groups would sue the EPA and ask the court to compel the agency to enact new environmental regulations.
Critics say the “sue and settle” policy amounts to regulation through litigation, which allowed former EPA administrations to skirt around the agency’s limited rulemaking authority.

Want to lose weight? Get fermenting!

The tens of trillions of microorganisms living in your intestines regulate your metabolism, energy levels, satiety, amount of body fat, mood and behavior … for good or for ill. It all depends on whether your gut hosts primarily beneficial bugs or primarily pathogenic bugs. Studies are showing that a preponderance of pathogenic bugs can make you fat.

Gut biome and fat

The good news is that you can easily fix a bad gut biome by ingesting probiotic and prebiotic supplements and foods.

Probiotics are the militant, beneficial bugs that bump off the pathogenic bugs and set up housekeeping in your gut. You can take them in supplement form and/or eat them in raw or fermented plant foods.

Prebiotics are non-digestible compounds that feed the bugs in your large intestines and help them thrive and make lots and lots of babies. Please note that JUST eating prebiotics is not going to heal your gut. The pathogenic bugs eat that stuff too.

Cold potato starch is my personal favorite prebiotic. For some reason, when potatoes are hot, the starch changes to a form that is digestible. Even more oddly, when hot potatoes cool off, the starch changes to a non-digestible form. I like cold potatoes, so often have a bowl of them in the fridge for snacking.

Unsaturated fat can also be useful in healing an unhealthy gut biome. Bile helps control pathogenic bugs in the gut. Eating healthy, unsaturated fats (like coconut oil) will stimulate bile production and help you grow and maintain a healthy gut biome.
