World Peace

From Groundhog Day when Andie and Bill toast World Peace
Did I miss something? Have we forgotten Vietnam? Have we forgotten the riots at the Democrat convention in the sixties against the war in Vietnam, a place not one in a thousand Americans could find on a map or cared about? Have we forgotten that boys just out of high school were drafted to go fight not in a war, but in a police action, but they died just like it was war? Have we forgotten that Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater said if we are going into a war in Vietnam, we should declare war and gear up for a real war to minimize casualties and death of our boys? Have we forgotten that we let our boys die because we fought a half-assed war, sort of like let's throw some of our boys into combat and see if it works?

Have we forgotten that the Democrats and some Republicans, too, are chicken hawks? Have we forgotten that war was great ratings for the networks, sold lots of automobiles and coffee? Made stars of journalists?

Let's remember and drink a toast to World Peace and anybody and anything that promotes peace between nations. Thank you President Trump.

Bizarro Mueller Indictment: No Corroboration????

Was the Single Vehicle Fatal Accident of Jim Jordan’s Nephew a Hit Job?

This is at the end of the video on Bombards Body Language.
The fascinating analysis of what's going on brings these TV faces
to life, as if you are in the room with them, feeling everything that is unsaid. 

Was the death of Representative Jim Jordan’s nephew in a single car accident the most conveniently timed accident in the history of the world or was this a mafia style hit job to send a message to pesky congressmen: we can get you and your family, any time and any place, you are never safe from the FBI’s reach. It’s a legitimate question. Several top FBI leaders look to have committed high crimes and misdemeanors and are therefore facing long jail sentences, a very unpleasant prospect for these millionaires many times over, (on government salaries, how very curious). So, without question, they have a very compelling motive. Since they control our top law enforcement agency, to state that they have opportunity is redundant. They have contacts with criminals and the legal leverage to coerce cooperation. It certainly is odd, or shall we say convenient, that, suddenly, after 28 years of silence, many former friends of Representative Jim Jordan remember vague locker room dirty talk. Fear is a powerful inducement to lie.

With both powerful motive and infinite opportunity, the last reservation against such sickening suspicions must be the character of the men who are running the FBI. Yet, this is the most damning evidence of all. Rosenstein has already threatened congress several times. When he testifies, he looks like a robot whose circuits are crossed, as his eyes roll manically around in his head. Anyone can see he’s on the verge of a hysterical breakdown, ready to fall apart. He hardly presents the cool, calm demeanor of a man of honor and integrity. He has guilty written all over him.

Mueller has a history of being a bully and has now locked up in solitary confinement an innocent man, Paul Manafort, for a twenty-year-old accounting error with a foreign government. Everybody knows Mueller is doing this to extort a lie about Trump from the pudgy old man. Sick. But to look at Mueller’s history is hardly to discover a man of honor and respect for the law. He and Comey have managed to become very rich men. Look into the HSBC prosecution and Comey’s appointment to their board. (Here is one small sample of Mueller’s unsavory career history.  A small sample of Mueller's career ) It’s almost as if Mueller has no conscience, no sense of honor and no decency, exactly the character of a man, who, with his back against the wall, would have no compunctions about committing murder to save his skin. Sadly, a closer look at Mueller’s character does nothing to allay suspicion, rather the opposite.

This is so dangerous, so frightening and so disheartening that I can hardly bear to think it without bursting into tears at what has become of our country. I hate even to have these suspicions, and yet I find nothing at all in the news to even begin to dispel them. When I shop at my local supermarket and see the good, hardworking people in this country, I know we deserve better, much better.

Look at Representative Jim Jordan’s face and Bret Baier’s face at the end of the video. (picture at the top) As Bombards Body language points out, they know something terrible, but they cannot say it. Yes. Look at Mueller, look at Wray, look at Rosenstein, and look at Comey; you don’t see candor, frankness, integrity, uprightness, honor, or scrupulous love of law and justice. Panic, desperation, insolence, deviousness, malice, cunning, and sly are the words that come to mind when you look at these men.

I think the unbelievably coincidental and convenient timing of the one car accident and death of Representative Jim Jordan’s nephew makes it fair to wonder if this was a hit job. However, it’s a question we will never know the answer to. But perhaps everyone who was meant to be intimidated knows or suspects the truth. That is what it happens when the great power of the FBI is in the hands of men who seem to be without honor or conscience. 

Perhaps it boils down to my Missouri grandmother's old saying; "May as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb." 

An addendum:

I know a lot of people out there, even Republicans, will get all squirrelly and say, but Paul Manafort is guilty of tax evasion, lying on a loan and acting as a foreign agent. Please. Evidently the acting as a foreign agent charge is very vague, hard to prove and rarely successfully prosecuted. As to loans and tax evasion, when it come to accounting, anyone in business knows that in many cases it’s all a matter of interpretation. Mueller’s comrade in arms is Weissmann, who destroyed the prestigious accounting firm Arthur Andersen, along with 85,000 jobs, thus ruining the lives of several hundred thousand people. His conviction was overturned a year later, but the company and all its employees were ruined. Now if a lawyer can foul up the accounting of one of the greatest accounting firms in the business, they can accuse Manafort of anything and somehow make something stick to the wall. They’re out for revenge and to hold off jail as long as possible.

School Choice and Betsy DeVos

Here are the opening paragraphs in Betsy DeVos's article on how to catch up to other countries in improving our education system: Link follows to read the whole article.

"Education and workforce policies have always been intimately linked, yet for decades the federal government has addressed them separately with two different departments. President Donald Trump recently announced a bold plan to remedy that with a new Department of Education and the Workforce that would reduce the federal footprint in education and make the federal government more responsive to the full range of needs faced by American students and workers. It would also help catch us up to how students in other countries pursue their education.
I saw such approaches during my first international trip as the U.S. secretary of education to schools in Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Each country takes a holistic approach to education to prepare students for career and life success. But it might be surprising to learn one topic didn’t come up: school choice.
I visited several different schools that are providing new and exciting learning opportunities for students at all levels. But “school choice” doesn’t dominate the conversation in these countries, because freedom in education isn’t controversial—it’s common sense. In the United States, some view offering families the freedom to make educational decisions with contempt. Defenders of the status quo fear that greater choice for parents and flexibility for educators will lead to underfunded schools and ultimately harm student performance.
In the countries I visited, education is oriented around the distinct needs of each student. In the Netherlands, freedom in education is enshrined in the constitution, which requires that the state provide equal funding for both publicly run and private schools. Two-thirds of students in the Netherlands attend schools that are privately run and taxpayer funded. "

You can read the rest of the article here:How We Can Catch Up to Other Countries in Education

Nothing is more important to the future of our country than the education of our young people. Our school system is so antiquated, so out of date and so dreadful that many young people drop out in frustration, leading to ruined lives. We are way, way behind other countries in successfully educating children even in the simple basics. Why? Ask the Teacher's Union.

The Lefties Vomit Hate Even on Laura Ingalls Wilder

I have a great respect for Sarah Uthoff, who has been carrying the torch of The Little House on the Prairie original book series written by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Ms. Uthoff is involved in numerous aspects of preserving the personal American history that Ms. Wilder wrote about, as well as the American history surrounding the Wilder story. Preservation of settler's cabins, their artifacts, recreations with live people in costumes showing the realities of life on the prairie.

Of course, the leftie dingbats want to pretend nobody ever took a covered wagon into the wilds and wrested a living from the soil without food stamps, healthcare or any other government services. They accuse Wilder of all sorts of 'isms' as if while struggling to make a life for themselves they were unconsciously engaged in political crimes and incorrectness. Horse puckey! Wilder and her family took life as it came and were innocent of all the nasty ideas that have made the left in this country so sick that they hate themselves and hate their own history and country.

Laura Ingalls Wilder's books have done more for children the world over than anything any politician ever dreamed of. She spoke to children's spirit, joy of living and joy of being part of a family.

Ms. Uthoff writes a brilliant and informed defense of Wilder full of the true generosity of spirit that you still find in the Midwest. It's worth a read, especially if somebody has tried to make you feel guilty for loving Little House On the Prairie. Click on the link below:
