  • Trump: If RNC isn’t “fair” to me, I’ll run as an independent;

    Folks would do well to remember, or to learn if they're uninformed or deliberately uninformed, that Ross Perot was a huge supporter of the U. S. military and of bringing the nation's POWS home—and he actively participated in bringing them home.

    Contrast this with Trump's blatant denigration of, yes, all American POWs—and in effect all their families and all those who have served or will serve in the U. S. military.

    Trump ceased to be an electable candidate at that moment, whether for President or dog catcher, and whether third or whatever party. This factor is being pathologically ignored by all who seek to make reality somehow conform to their wishes and illusions.

    “Trump never does or says anything he does not mean, when the chips are down.....and his people love him for it!!!”

    U. S. veterans and their families, along with all citizens with at least a minimum knowledge of history and specifically a knowledge of those who have given national service to America since its founding and what it entails and has entailed in sacrifices and lives, will assuredly agree with the former—not the latter.

    It's hard to love someone who has emptied his heart of love except self-love. In that aspect, he is like Obama.

    Donald Trump, CIC . . . . . Why, certainly, sir, you can count on the vote, the fervent vote, of every past American POW and their families, and the great multitude of all American veterans and even those currently serving and their families, who just, well, know your despicable/obscene remarks about them and their service are mere chaff in the wind.

    We are now in a world where words have ceased to have consequences, right Mr. Trump!

    I asked if you had READ the police reports.

    Some parties AT THIS TIME assert that juvenile records in Arkansas can be accessed through a FOIA request—namely the retired police chief who seems to have clandestinely released the information, along with perhaps others out to destroy the Duggars.

    If such information release were legal, why would the retired police chief have done this clandestinely?? It appears that she and/or others did it for sheer malevolence.

    If the FOIA assertion were to stand, youthful indiscretions of millions of youth who have moved on from adolesence would be up for grabs and for full-throated publication in every slime publication and medium. Blackmail would be a major new business.

    The cop's personal life and LATER troubles have not been shown to have affected the filing nor content of the juvenile report in any manner.

    You didn't reply if you had actually watched and listened to the M. Kelly interviews. Nor did you state exactly what “kinds of things in the TV interviews....don't match the facts.”

    Do please tell us the facts.

    Finally, we have a factual—factual—history on Obama. Period.

    Re: 1) What and who are your sources for just how juvenile Josh “molested his sisters”?

    Re: 2) How was information on a juvenile “legally released” when juvenile records in Arkansas are sealed?

    Re: 3) How “was a sex crime committed here and....covered up by the parents” when the parents on their own volition took Josh to the local police station to made a statement to the police and comply with any and all laws on the matter?

    4) You have actually read the police reports? And did you watch and, yes, listen to Megan Kelly on Fox the last three nights in which the Duggars, including the sisters affected, spoke openingly and directly on “described Josh's conduct and their own reaction to said conduct.”?

    5) Aren't you playing the nihilistic left game here? Hatred has been directed at the Duggars from the media left and social-media left not because of a juvenile’s poor judgment but because of the family's publicly expressed Christian faith and values, and wholesome life style. That is hard anathema to the left's political correctness.

    Why doesn't our dear Snowden ever write an op-ed for the NYT on the spying on, intimidation of, and often slaying of Russians who happen to be so brave as to oppose Putin and his government of thugs.

    Snowden serves as house-pimp to Putin and totalitarianism.

    Why dear child Snowden don't you ever write an op-ed on the spying of Russia on the U. S.?

    Why don't you ever mention in your degenerate and putrid utterances that most of the information you stole was critical defense information of the U.S. and our allies worldwide, such as the electronic monitoring of Russia from the outside, and had nothing to do with U. S. citizens?

    Snowden’s manifest glee over what is occurring to the national security of the U. S. only reveals how much that security has now been compromised.

    Snowden makes the WWII propagandists Tokyo Rose, of Imperial Japan, and Lord Ha-Ha, of Nazi Germany, seem small stuff.

    He is a testimony to the naivete of much of the free world today.

    Ben Franklin's observations on freedom and security are classical. They are ever-applicable.

    Franklin, however, did not live in a post-9/11 world.

    Franklin's world was without existence of any concept of terrible weapons of mass destruction including weapons of not just small pox but weaponized small pox, Ebola, diphtheria, and an infinite number of other weaponized and mass-killing biological weapons concocted, and constantly being concocted, in laboratories created by crazed tyrants, fanatics of the worst order, and those who just hate and want to kill—kill all if possible—the inhabitants of America and at least much of the rest of the civilized world.

    A big door closed on 9/11.

    It was the door to a world we all knew, were safe in, and loved. The door will never open again.

    If anyone doesn't think so, let them, for instance, go directly to their aircraft the next time at the airport. Don't show ID—that's an infringement of your liberty and the ID could be used by somebody or something to spy on you. Wave the Security folks a copy of Ben's words as you leap the fence—for the last time.

    The ignorance about Common Core continues.

    Common Core was formulated and approved by the Association of Governors—STATE governors— to remedy the dismal educational achievements in the U.S. relative to other nations, particularly in math and
    science.

    Jeb Bush has always supported a common-core program as a STATE program, and emphatically not as a federal program.

    Bush's educational achievements in Florida are an example of the success of a curriculum devised by individual STATES to meet the obvious needs in U. S. schools to raise achievement levels, particularly in math and science.

    The other candidates know that the Association of Governors originated the program and that it was a STATE program from the start, and that it was widely supported.

    But through their lack of courage to explain common core as a state program, have conveniently reversed themselves in pandering to the hysteria of the mob for political gain.

    Bush has shown backbone, something mobs do not like.

    Just what, please, are the asserted “multiple scandals regarding NSA?”. Please be specific. If you do not trust oversight by top governmental and military officials and the judiciary, then who do you trust?

    Snowden brought to light only that which was of significant and even immense assistance to the very people, groups, and countries that want to destroy America and, yes, to kill every single American given the chance. He also tossed bones to the American public to turn that public against its own government.

    The overwhelming material that Snowden stole was of top secret MILITARY INFORMATION involving, as much as anything, the coordinated activities of other, allied nations against totalitarian and semi-totalitarian regimes—such, as for instance, Sweden's formerly unknown and secret monitoring of Russian military communications.

    Snowden did not try to flee to a single country that is considered a free country as represented by existing freedom of the press. They were all outright or de facto enemies of the U. S. He tried to go, in order, to Cuba, Ecuador, China, and ended up in Russia—where he may have intended to end up from the beginning. There he has served as a servile propagandist, emitting in his self-righteous and degenerate rants to the naive worldwide not a peep about the repression, the outright spying on , and the continual assassinations of Russians who publicly indicate opposition to the repressive and murderous Putin regime.

    Snowden is a modern reincarnation of the infamous “Tokyo Rose” and “Lord Ha-Ha”, propagandists for imperial Japan and Nazi Germany in World War II. How anyone can make him a guiding star is a puzzle of psychological pathology. It's unfortunate his admirers can not spend just a little time with him in his chosen setting: they would quickly learn what freedom is all about and that, yes, a free country has the right to defend itself and damn well better do that if it wants to survive.

    Equating the NSA with Obama is absurd except in the sense that Obama had a major role in the hysteria against the NSA through not explaining immediately to the American people, emphatically and clearly, what was involved in the NSA program.

    In this, Obama has now made the U. S. and its allies infinitely less safe—assisted in his mission by Rand & Co. Yes, we can all sleep easier now. Like hell we can.

    The door to complete, ultra privacy slammed shut on 9/11. It will never open the same again despite the misguided and mangled attempts such as the present one.

    The real rejoicing over this lethal action comes from Islamoterrorists who see once again that America is incapable of coming together, overcoming divisive individualism and posturing, to defend itself. They will attribute it all to Allah.

    The collection of metadata to find connections between terrorists phones is hardly the reading of emails as the shouting claims. Will someone please explain just how terrorists can be identified by perpetually going to a court to seek permission to use the revamped program to somehow—somehow—identify yet unidentified millions of potential terrorists. How do you find a needle hidden in a haystack when you must first have permission to look for it by informing a judge or judges exactly where it is located?

    One of Obama’s first actions in office was to remove in Feb. of 2009 a bust of Sir Winston Churchill from the Oval Office and send it back to Britain—an action of a lout rather than a President.

    Some have speculated that this done was because of Britain’s former colonial role in Kenya, where Obama’s relatives continue to exist.

    In Obama’s petulant eyes and narrow mind, this is perhaps of greater significance to him than the close relationship between the U. S. and Britain since our founding—including the WWII years when Churchill led the people of England in overcoming, with the U. S. and other Allied Powers, Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy, a war incidentally in which 60 million humans were killed.

    Obama’s actions, in the instance of the Churchill bust, surely indicate substantiation of the D’Souza article.

    Ironically, it is Obama who has the mind and intent of a colonialist—seeing America as His colony. His cold eyes tell us this, yes, even more than his words.

    That obviously is apparent to most of us—it would seem almost all of us—since we reject Islam, especially the radical off-shoots; and we don’t find it either necessary or appropriate to burn what millions of other humans consider a holy book.

    Is it not evil to carry out an unnecessary and provocative action that will be used by Jihadists as a symbolic action to justify further, and well as past murderous actions, against non-Muslims—and even other Muslims who may be working with Western nations and personnel in the war against terror in such places as Iraq and Afghanistan?

    Why would anyone want to do anything, even in “the name of liberty”, to, provide ammunition to those to whom liberty is anathema and whose life mission is to destroy it?

    Ironically, in proposing to torch a Koran, this fool only feeds the flames of radical Islam.

    They, of all things, went to Israel in the 80’s to study the working of communes, but then couldn’t get communes to work back home on the Georgia properties—for, unsurprising, all the usual reasons for failure of commune projects in the U. S., especially in the 70’s and 80’s. The USDA was ultimately blamed years later . . .

    Well said—in a sea of voices of naivite.

    Kagan is likely to be confirmed even if every Republican were to vote against her. Brown may support her if that is the sentiment of Massachusetts—he stated from the outset that he was elected to represent the people of that state.

    He is no potted plant.

    Much of the financial bill will be determined by subsequent lobbying and legal challenges. If the Republicans had filibustered it, they would have been accused of blocking reform.

    Wikepedia on Nobel Laureate Mairead Corrigan Maguire:

    “In 2004 she went to Israel and welcomed Mordechai Vanunu upon his release from prison, where he had served an 18-year prison sentence for disclosing Israel’s nuclear secrets.[3]

    “On 20 April 2007, while participating in a protest against the construction of Israel’s security fence outside the Arab settlement of Bil’in, the Israeli forces dispersed the protesters and Corrigan was hit by a rubber-coated bullet. Corrigan was also tear-gassed, and received medical treatment at an Israeli hospital.[4][5][6]

    “In April 2009, Corrigan sharply criticised Israel, alleging that the Israeli government was “carrying out a policy of ethnic cleansing against Palestinians” and that these policies “are against international law, against human rights, against the dignity of the Palestinian people.”

    In short: not a person you’d like to have a Guinness with . . .

    This may be the reason Obama decided to be in Chicago on Memorial Day instead of Arlington National Cemetery in the company of veterans and Armed Forces members.

    It’s hard to imagine him, after this, being received there in a warm, and truly respectful, manner

    This is an utter denigration of the U. S. military. It is stunning—and disgusting—in its attempt to nullify an agreed-on study by the military itself on Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and any needed changes in the policy.
