    They have no chef and they cook for themselves, often together. They make their own yogurt. On this summer morning, Rosalynn mixes pancake batter and sprinkles in blueberries grown on their land. Carter cooks them on the griddle. Then he does the dishes.
  • Rosie O'Donnell, the Democrat, the Trump Hater,...is Dumb, Dumber and Dumbest.

    Rosie O'Donnell the "supreme" POTUS, Donald J. Trump hater/witch just ain't the sharpest knife in the drawer. But...then the singers and entertainers from "Broadway" ain't too sharp either. Ah...yes, the grand gathering outside the "White House" to protest and hate POTUS, Donald J. Trump had some flaws...no one knew that the POTUS, Trump would not be there. The entire country was told by the very media that hates Trump, that he (Trump) was vacationing at his golf course in New Jersey. Yes, O'Donnell and her chorus sang their hateful, hearts out for thirty minutes hoping to either wake up or...
  • Workers Hardest Hit by Recession Are Joining in Recovery

    The least educated American workers, who took the hardest hit in the Great Recession, were also among the slowest to harvest the gains of the recovery. Now they are a striking symbol of a strong economy. The unemployment rate for those without a high school diploma fell to 5.1 percent in July, the Labor Department reported Friday, the lowest since the government began collecting data on such workers in 1992. At the economy’s nadir in the summer of 2009, the unemployment rate for high school dropouts hit 15.6 percent, more than three times the peak unemployment rate for college graduates....

    If you want to take a glimpse into the future of our brave new multicultural world, i.e. what is going to happen to any country formerly dominated by “whitey”, look no further than South Africa. Also, I would strongly recommend you to watch Lauren Southern’s documentary Farmlands, it will red-pill you forever (the link’s at the bottom of the article). Moving along with today’s news story, South African whites, also known as Boers, are currently facing murder, rape and robbery on an industrial scale. Speaking of murder rates, white South African farmers are going to become extinct in a few...
  • Is it time to panic about land expropriation?

    I have had a deal with a few of my friends who are farmers, that I will tell them when it is time to panic about the proposed expropriation without compensation. Until then, I advised them to relax. Last night after President Cyril Ramaphosa's address to the nation in which he announced the ANC's decision to propose an amendment to the Constitution to expropriate without compensation, I got many texts asking: "Is it time yet?" Let me say upfront that I think the ANC has been handling the land debate very clumsily (to put it politely). It is clear that...
  • Business students more likely to have a brain parasite spread by cats

    New Scientist ^ | Jul 25, 2018 | By New Scientist staff and Press Association
    An analysis of students in the US has found that those who have a certain type of brain parasite are more likely to be majoring in business studies. Toxoplasma gondii is a protozoan parasite carried by cats. It can infect people through contact with cat faeces, poorly cooked meat, or contaminated water, and as many as one-third of the world’s population may be infected. The parasite doesn’t make us feel sick, but it forms cysts in the brain where it can remain for the rest of a person’s life. Some studies have linked infection with the parasite to slower reaction...

    Donald as I read your comments about all of the crapola on the East coast, there's one that always seems to get a pass. The wretched Los Angeles Times. Connect them up with those papers, the recently embarrassed, again, Time magazine and all the rest of that rot. The L.A. Times I would submit is the most biased, leftist leaning piece of trash in this country, bar none. Every single headline is twisted and skewered to make it come out against you. It's always something like "Trump saves 5 Nuns in crosswalk, but why not six?" How could he...Every headlines...

    A Richmond, Virginia, elementary school will switch its name from that of a Confederate general to that of the nation's first black President. On Monday, the Richmond school board voted to rename J.E.B. Stuart Elementary as Barack Obama Elementary School. Members of the school's community submitted ideas for a new name and students at the Richmond school, which is 95% African-American, voted among seven choices. The top three finalists were: Barack Obama, Northside and Wishtree. Last year, a school board in Mississippi dropped the name Jefferson Davis, for the president of the Confederacy, in favor of naming an elementary school...
  • Vanity - Barack Hussein Obama, his wife and Netflix has little glimmer and shine.

    06/04/2018 6:49:49 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 32 replies
    Netflix, The power player TV supplier, etc. has badly wounded the "Netflix, Goose that lays the Golden Egg". Clearly committing a dumb business move by hiring Barack Hussein Obama & his wife Michelle to perform film production for the Netflix brand. Hiring a failed, flawed, criminal, POTUS, with no positive legacy whatsoever, is not the sharpest choice in the least. Netflix, in time, will come to suffer the selection they have made. The blow back is in progress right now from their customers, enmasse. In the movie "The Running Man" "Arnie" fights for his life and friends lives against the...

    National Review ^ | May 11, 2018 | By DAVID HARSANYI
    It’s strange that a president who had such a transformative effect on our national discourse will leave such a negligible policy legacy. But Barack Obama, whose imperial term changed the way Americans interact and in some ways paved the way for the Trump presidency, is now watching his much-celebrated and mythologized two-term legacy be systematically demolished. This, in many ways, tells us that American governance still works. When President Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal, he was able to do so without much difficulty because the agreement hinged on presidential fiat rather than...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | May 11, 2018 | by Fred Barnes
    President Obama’s legacy is rapidly vanishing. The decision by President Trump to withdraw from the nuclear deal with Iran is the biggest blow, but it’s only the latest. The elimination of the individual mandate and canceling the yearly bailout of insurance companies have left Obamacare in a precarious condition. Young immigrants whose parents brought them to the United States unlawfully - so-called dreamers - are losing their legal status. This is historic. Presidents often vow to wipe out big chunks of their predecessor’s legacies. President Eisenhower was going to take on the New Deal. Ronald Reagan targeted the Great Society....

    South Carolina's state owned utility paid $9 million in performance bonuses to executives of a private utility for two nuclear reactors that were never finished, according to the public utility and emails turned over to state and federal investigators. SCANA Corp. even billed taxpayer-supported Santee Cooper $3.2 million for bonuses in August, A MONTH AFTER the utilities abandoned 10 years of construction and planning for the reactors, according to the emails released by Gov. Henry McMaster's office on Wednesday.

    Friday in Dallas during his remarks at the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) Annual Leadership Forum, President Donald Trump poked fun at former Secretary of State John Kerry for breaking his leg in a bike accident in France, in 2015. Trump said, “Same thing with Iran, remember? We’re signing that horrible deal and they’re marching in the streets saying death to America. I said who signs a deal when they’re marching saying death to America? Who marches? They’re saying death to America and we have the former administration — and represented by John Kerry — not the best negotiator we’ve ever...

    1. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu began his press conference in Tel Aviv on Monday evening at a distinct disadvantage. In his desire to discredit the Iran nuclear deal - from which President Donald Trump is expected to withdraw on May 12. 2. The information Netanyahu revealed Monday will not have been new to the leaders of the United States, Great Britain, France, Germany and Russia, who are signatories to the JCPOA. Netanyahu’s plenipotentiaries – the heads of Mossad and the National Security Council, and the Foreign Ministry’s director general – have all been shuttling between the capitals in recent days,...

    Now solidly into the second year of Donald Trump’s presidency, we can look back at Barack Obama’s legacy with some context. Many aspects of Obama’s eight years in office will go down in history as a success, but not all of them. Let’s take a look at the worst mistakes he made and one force that may have rested even outside his control. 1. Confidence in the economy recovered post-Obama. 2. Obama oversaw a period of struggling labor. 3. The stock market struggled during Obama’s tenure. 4. The 44th president heightened tensions in the Middle East. 5. Obama let the...

Mr. Obama is inaugurating his most significant international project as an ex-president, with an announcement on Monday that the Obama Foundation plans to convene 200 young people this July in Johannesburg for five days of meetings, workshops and technical training. At the same time, Mr. Obama will deliver a lecture to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, whom he eulogized after his death five years ago by saying he “makes me want to be a better man.” The choice of Mandela and South Africa are freighted with symbolism for Mr. Obama at a time when...

    Two independent investigations have now placed the blame for the failure of the classified Zuma satellite to reach orbit on Northrop Grumman, not SpaceX...The investigations tentatively concluded that onboard sensors did not immediately communicate to ground systems that the satellite did not separate from the rocket, according to the Journal. Unbeknownst to officials at the time, the planned return of the rocket’s upper stage — a method of disposal to avoid adding space debris around the Earth — brought the satellite back down with it. By the time the satellite separated from the rocket it was too late, putting Zuma...

    A&E performance fell to the lowest level on record in March as the NHS continues to face unprecedented pressure. Just 84.6% of accident and emergency patients in England were seen within four hours last month, dropping from 85% in February and compared to 90% in March 2017. And the number of people suffering waits of more than 12 hours more than tripled, compared to the same month the year before. Medics said the backlog created by the situation would leave some hospitals struggling to catch up. President of the Society for Acute Medicine Nick Scriven called the figures the "clearest...

    Four years ago, it almost looked as if chemical attacks on Syrian civilians would stop. “We struck a deal where we got 100 percent of the chemical weapons out,” declared then-Secretary of State John Kerry on Meet the Press in 2014. Kerry was referring to Bashar al-Assad’s declared stockpiles of chemical weapons which, under a 2013 deal struck by the Obama administration following a sarin nerve gas attack that brought the U.S. to the brink of striking Syrian government forces, were dismantled and shipped out of the country. But there were two important and deadly loopholes. The first was that...
