Anyone interested in Saving about $100 per month and whacking ABC/ESPN/Disney at the same time? If so follow this simple 4 step process! 1. Cancel your Cable or Satellite service, that will save you at least a hundred to two hundred+ $’s per month. 2. Sign up with Sling Blue as your tv provider. Sling Blue will cost about 25$ per month. It does not carry ABC/ESPN nor Disney. So you will not be sending any of your hard earned after tax’s to the maggots at ABC/ESPN each month. 3. Send a note to the cable/satellite company explaining why you cut their service. 4. Start a monthly donation to Free Republic with some of your savings and thank Jim Rob for the real news 24/87. The FBI's Top 20+ criminals!

Thanks to Travis Mcgee for these great mug shots of the thugs in the FBI/DOJ! I used to think I was just a regular guy, but . . . I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist; ; I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today's standards, makes me a fascist; I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic; · I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business; · I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel; · I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby; · I am older than 70, which makes me a useless old man; · I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary; · I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe; · I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist; · I believe in hard work, fair play, & fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist; · I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant; · Recently, a woman called me and my friends a “basket of Deplorables”; · Please help me come to terms with the new me...because I'm just not sure who I am anymore! I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking I just can't imagine or understand what's happened to me so quickly's all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years. As if all this crap wasn't enough to deal with, I'm now afraid to go into either restroom when not at home!.

Mexico has been interfering with our elections since LBJ was president. It isn’t the evil Russians interfering with our elections it is the Mexican Government and their illegals here.

Recently, hundreds of illegal aliens and other sanctuary city advocates filled the Texas House gallery to protest a bill that will protect Texans from criminal illegal aliens.

During that protest some illegal aliens held signs saying ‘I am illegal and here to stay.’ Texas Republican Representative Matt Rinaldi then decided to call ICE on the self described illegals.

The Russia/Russia bs is just a rat and rino distraction from the real meddlers and real interfering evil scum of our elections. The Mexican Government, their illegals here, the rat politicians, and our Rino’s, who want them for their cheap labor and votes, are the real meddlers in our election, not Russia!

Mexico has been interfering in our elections since LBJ!

Illegals and their liberal supporters threatening Texas legislators for daring to uphold our laws re immigration in the Gallery @ the Texas Legislature Building.

How many millions of $’s/Pesos has Mexico donated to the democrats to keep their illegals in America, since LBJ?

How much Mexican money did Obama and Clinton receive personally and for their elections?

How many illegal Mexicans voted for Illiarily in the last election and for Obama's two terms?

How many illegal Mexicans voted for rats in our cities, counties, states and of course at our federal level?

How many Hispanic tv channels like Univision, do we have on Comcast, Direct TV, Dish TV and other tv providers, that we pay for and don’t speak Spanish? Who owns those Spanish only channels? Why do we have to pay for Spanish TV channels/stations, when we don’t speak Spanish?

Who owns the NY Slimes and other election meddling companies?

It is past time for our Congress to stop the Mexican meddling/interference/hacking at every level in America.

How many millions of $’s has Mexico donated to the democrats to keep their illegals here, at every level, city, county, state and Federal level?

Again, the Russia/Russia bs is just a rat and rino distraction from the real meddlers and real interfering evil scum of our elections, Mexico and its illegals in America.

ATTENTION RUSSIAN AGENTS AND SPIES! If you wish to collude with candidate Trump take a number and be seated.

The Mexican Government, their illegals here, the rat politicians, and our Rino’s, who want them for their cheap labor and votes, are the real meddlers in our election, not Russia!

It is time to enforce our standing laws against illegal Mexican immigration and Mexican illegals voting!

The land in La Jolla hasn’t moved up or down in the last 130 years. Neither has the ocean. Where is this sea level catastrophe happening? On a sandbar? At current melt rates, it will take 300,000 years for Antarctica to melt.

A lot of erosion has occurred over the last 130 years. In the blink animation above (click on the image to see animation) note that the rock under the three people standing on the right in the 1871 image is gone, and has formed a small island of boulders with three people sitting on it in the recent image. There is no evidence that sea level has risen.

A few Palm Trees have been planted, but the sea appears to be in exactly the same place it was 130 years ago. In fact the rocks on the upper right are higher above the water now than in the earlier picture (high tide.) There is no glacial rebound in San Diego, and the faults in the region are strike-slip (horizontal) faults. They don’t cause vertical movement. Prior to the March quake this year, the last large quake to hit the region was in 1862.

COMMENTARY: Welcome to Trumpland, where the president enjoys the upper hand By WAYNE ALLYN ROOT Rev iew-

Journal Liberals are delusional. They are so hysterical over President Donald Trump that they have convinced themselves they’re winning.

This is hilarious. Trump is destroying them every single day and they’re too blind, deaf and arrogant to notice. Don’t look now, but Trump has ‘em right where he wants ‘em.

Who are they, you might ask? Critics, cynics, naysayers, the biased liberal media, Obama Kool-Aid drinkers, George Soros’s socialist cabal, government employees and all the Israel haters of the left.

These groups are so delusional they don’t even know the president is wiping away Barack Obama’s agenda and policies as if they never existed. Obama is being erased from the record books.

In only a few days … while liberals sat around gloating over the “failure” of the Obamacare repeal … Trump changed the direction of America.

Trump did more in this time than most presidents do in a four-year term. And wait, Obamacare’s repeal is coming, too. What happened to TrumpCare was a short-term blip. Trump is relentless. Trump is the poster boy for relentless. More on that in a minute.

First, let’s review what Trump has accomplished in such as short span. ■ Trump approved the Keystone Pipeline that Obama fought for eight long years, then killed outright. Like Freddie Krueger in “Nightmare on Elm Street,” Keystone is back from the dead. ■ Trump rolled back Obama’s entire climate change agenda and killed the war on coal. Coal was dead, and now it’s not. Like I said, Trump is erasing Obama like he was never there. ■ Trump and AG Jeff Sessions announced the defunding of sanctuary cities.

Finally, a president who believes in the rule of law. Finally, a president who believes in the U.S. Constitution. Finally, a president who takes action. Finally, a president who follows through on his campaign promises. Trump will cut off funding to cities that protect illegal aliens and refuse to obey the laws of the land. It’s a new country, folks. Call it “Trumpland.” ■ Trump forced an Israel-hater at the United Nations who authored a report calling Israel an “apartheid state” to resign. Obama would have given her an award. Trump said “You’re fired.” ■ Trump signed legislation killing BLM rules for federal government control of more than 40 million acres of federal lands. Trump has the backs of ranchers, farmers, property owners. The power is back in the hands of the states, not Gestapo-like agents of the federal government. ■

Trump put Jared Kushner in charge of a SWAT team of business executives with the job of streamlining government, overhauling the federal bureaucracy and killing regulations that hinder business. ■

My educated guess is Trump is also creating executive orders right now, behind the scenes, that slowly starve and strangle Obamacare without any congressional vote. Wanna bet? But it won’t matter. Because I’m betting President Trump will pass an Obamacare repeal … soon. Trump didn’t lose that battle. Businessmen such as Trump never fail.

They just learn from an initial setback, pick themselves back up and figure out how to win the battle.

Members of the Trump opposition in Congress are “the biggest losers.” They are clueless career politicians. They’ve never played a reality show competition against a smart relentless business leader. Soon Obamacare will be history. Trump will wipe that smirk off the face of arrogant liberals who celebrated way too soon. And Trump will be even closer to changing the direction of America and erasing Obama like he never happened. Trump has ‘em right where he wants ‘em.

The Intellectual Yet Idiot ^ | 9/16/2016 | Nassim Nicholas Taleb Posted on 9/19/2016, 12:45:55 PM by Darnright What we have been seeing worldwide, from India to the UK to the US, is the rebellion against the inner circle of no-skin-in-the-game policymaking “clerks” and journalists-insiders, that class of paternalistic semi-intellectual experts with some Ivy league, Oxford-Cambridge, or similar label-driven education who are telling the rest of us

1) what to do,

2) what to eat,

3) how to speak,

4) how to think… and

5) who to vote for.

But the problem is the one-eyed following the blind: these self-described members of the “intelligenzia” can’t find a coconut in Coconut Island, meaning they aren’t intelligent enough to define intelligence hence fall into circularities — but their main skill is capacity to pass exams written by people like them.

With psychology papers replicating less than 40%, dietary advice reversing after 30 years of fatphobia, macroeconomic analysis working worse than astrology, the appointment of Bernanke who was less than clueless of the risks, and pharmaceutical trials replicating at best only 1/3 of the time.

People are perfectly entitled to rely on their own ancestral instinct and listen to their grandmothers (or Montaigne and such filtered classical knowledge) with a better track record than these policymaking goons. Indeed one can see that these academico-bureaucrats who feel entitled to run our lives aren’t even rigorous, whether in medical statistics or policymaking.

They cant tell science from scientism — in fact in their eyes scientism looks more scientific than real science. (For instance it is trivial to show the following: much of what the Cass-Sunstein-Richard Thaler types — those who want to “nudge” us into some behavior — much of what they would classify as “rational” or “irrational” (or some such categories indicating deviation from a desired or prescribed protocol) comes from their misunderstanding of probability theory and cosmetic use of first-order models.) They are also prone to mistake the ensemble for the linear aggregation of its components as we saw in the chapter extending the minority rule.

The Intellectual Yet Idiot is a production of modernity hence has been accelerating since the mid twentieth century, to reach its local supremum today, along with the broad category of people without skin-in-the-game who have been invading many walks of life. Why? Simply, in most countries, the government’s role is between five and ten times what it was a century ago (expressed in percentage of GDP).

The IYI seems ubiquitous in our lives but is still a small minority and is rarely seen outside specialized outlets, think tanks, the media, and universities — most people have proper jobs and there are not many openings for the IYI. Beware the semi-erudite who thinks he is an erudite. He fails to naturally detect sophistry. The IYI pathologizes others for doing things he doesn’t understand without ever realizing it is his understanding that may be limited. He thinks people should act according to their best interests and he knows their interests, particularly if they are “red necks” or English non-crisp-vowel class who voted for Brexit. When plebeians do something that makes sense to them, but not to him, the IYI uses the term “uneducated”.

What we generally call participation in the political process, he calls by two distinct designations: “democracy” when it fits the IYI, and “populism” when the plebeians dare voting in a way that contradicts his preferences.

While rich people believe in one tax dollar one vote, more humanistic ones in one man one vote, Monsanto in one lobbyist one vote, the IYI believes in one Ivy League degree one-vote, with some equivalence for foreign elite schools and PhDs as these are needed in the club. More socially, the IYI subscribes to The New Yorker. He never curses on twitter. He speaks of “equality of race; and “economic equality” but never went out drinking with a minority cab driver (again, no real skin in the game as the concept is foreign to the IYI).

Those in the U.K. have been taken for a ride by Tony Blair. The modern IYI has attended more than one TEDx talks in person or watched more than two TED talks on Youtube. Not only will he vote for Hillary Monsanto-Malmaison because she seems electable and some such circular reasoning, but holds tha
