What is Next????

Those who pay attention should be familiar with Prager University, and the videos I frequently re-post from its website.

These videos cover some of the most important topics in American life, and are designed to be educational...In no way can any of them be considered risque, over the top, racist, sexist, hurtful, etc.

But not in Liberal-controlled-America - the land of 'trigger warnings' and 'microaggressions'...Please read the statement below, and ask yourself a simple question:  If the Liberal establishment (which includes all of our education and media outlets) thinks Prager University is too much for the American people to handle WHAT IS NEXT???


LOS ANGELES, Oct. 11, 2016 - Prager University (PragerU), a conservative online video production site, launched a petition today to draw attention to the fact that YouTube is censoring 21 of its videos.

YouTube is censoring these videos by placing them under "restricted mode." Many families and schools enable restricted mode in order to keep inappropriate language, and explicit adult and sexual content away from children--not to prevent them from watching animated, age-appropriate, educational videos on topics ranging from economics and history to happiness and philosophy.

In response to an official complaint PragerU filed, Google specialists defended their restriction of our videos, and said, "We don't censor anyone", although they do "take into consideration what the intent of the video is" and "what the focus of the video is."

There is no excuse for Google and YouTube censoring and restricting any PragerU videos, which are produced with the sole intent of educating people of all ages about America's founding values.

Here is a list of the 21 videos currently being censored by PragerU:
Are The Police Racist?
Why Don't Feminists Fight for Muslim Women?
Why Did America Fight the Korean War?
Who's More Pro-Choice: Europe or America?

Mail-in ballots have gone out, and I know people are sending them in...So, even though it's still almost a month before 'Election Day,' it's time to put out my recommendations.


-  I still can't see how anyone who isn't a committed Liberal, poor or uber-wealthy can vote for Hillary...Hillary is a committed Liberal - Obama Term III.  She will work to help the poor and the super-rich, and will do so at the expense of the Middle Class.  She will continue to stoke race problems.  The destruction she brought on the world as SecState will be multiplied when she's C-in-C.  On top of that, Hillary is 'The New Nixon.'  And who knows what she owes all the people she's been bought by - environmentalist groups, big banks, Middle Eastern dictators, etc.  She will put Lefties on the Supreme Court - it's not even debatable.

Trump is what he is, and what he is is truly unknown.  That said, I have no doubt he loves America, and has no intention of handing over our interests to global predators.  And ultimately if Trump becomes President he is going to be the most 'checked and balanced' President ever - as much by Republicans as by Democrats.  There's no guarantee he will put Conservatives on the Supreme Court, but no matter who he puts up it will be equal to or better than those put up by Hillary - and he may even put up some excellent ones.  This is easy:  Vote for Trump.

House, Senate, Governor, local elections:  This may be the last time I go this route, but I recommend voting for every Republican on every ballot...One, if Hillary wins they, will be the only thing to possibly check her (though it's debatable if they will).  Two, if Trump wins, they will likely be able to get him to sign off on some positive Conservative bills.

My faith in the Republicans at the Federal level is very low - House and Senate.  They continue to be cuckolded by Obama, and will likely continue this trend if Hillary wins as well.  In fact, I believe they'd be harder on Trump as President than they have against Obama or would be against Hillary...The only other choice, however, is handing the House back to Nancy Pelosi and the Senate to Chuck Schumer - both are completely unacceptable options regardless of who is in the White House.  This is the only reason I'd still vote for Republicans at the Federal level - one last chance.  Vote for every Republican on your ballot.

State and Local Elections:  Same as above, but on a micro level - the level which actually means more to our day-to-day lives...Vote for every Republican on your ballot.

As much as Republicans at the Federal level have failed, Republican leaders (especially governors) have been excellent.  In fact, Republicans at the state level have been the only effective check on Obama.  I see no reason this won't continue no matter who takes control of the Federal levers.

Judges:  I can't believe any state allows the public to vote on judges.  No one has a clue what they are voting for - not even those who pay attention to politics...I'd recommend you skip it and save the ink in your pen, or vote to keep them all.

Ballot Propositions:  This is another one I don't understand why the public is voting on.  We pay our state legislators to do a job, and instead of doing so they pass the buck to the people to make the hard decisions they don't have the guts to make.  Often knowing the public will make decisions which severely hurt the state...As such, I would vote NO on all ballot propositions out of conviction.  But I know most of you want reasons.  I live in Arizona, so here are the reasons to vote NO on our props.

- Prop 205 'Lets Get High, For the Kids':  Personally, I'd vote against any law making narcotics legal.  We have enough problems in this country, and the last thing we need is another excuse to encourage bad habits.  But I understand many people have no problem with pot, and compare it to booze.  Fine...What really gets me about this one is the way its proponents are selling it as 'For the Kids.'  This is a favorite tool of the Left, and any time I hear 'do it for the kids' I get very nervous.  As such, VOTE NO.

- Prop 206 'Minimum Wage':  Arizona's economy is finally bouncing back from the last recession, and the last thing we need is for employers to find reasons to hire less people or take their business somewhere else...I have two daughters who are in the early stages of their work-lives.  The last thing I want is to see their growth stunted by such foolishness - even though it sounds really nice.  VOTE NO.

U.S. Navy's 241st Birthday


On Friday, October 13, 1775, meeting in Philadelphia, the Continental Congress voted to fit out two sailing vessels, armed with ten carriage guns, as well as swivel guns, and manned by crews of eighty, and to send them out on a cruise of three months to intercept transports carrying munitions and stores to the British army in America. This was the original legislation out of which the Continental Navy grew and as such constitutes the birth certificate of the navy.

To understand the momentous significance of the decision to send two armed vessels to sea under the authority of the Continental Congress, we need to review the strategic situation in which it was made and to consider the political struggle that lay behind it.

Americans first took up arms in the spring of 1775 not to sever their relationship with the king, but to defend their rights within the British Empire. By the autumn of 1775, the British North American colonies from Maine to Georgia were in open rebellion. Royal governments had been thrust out of many colonial capitals and revolutionary governments put in their places. The Continental Congress had assumed some of the responsibilities of a central government for the colonies, created a Continental Army, issued paper money for the support of the troops, and formed a committee to negotiate with foreign countries. Continental forces captured Fort Ticonderoga on Lake Champlain and launched an invasion of Canada.

In October 1775 the British held superiority at sea, from which they threatened to stop up the colonies' trade and to wreak destruction on seaside settlements. In response a few of the states had commissioned small fleets of their own for defense of local waters. Congress had not yet authorized privateering. Some in Congress worried about pushing the armed struggle too far, hoping that reconciliation with the mother country was still possible.

Yet, a small coterie of men in Congress had been advocating a Continental Navy from the outset of armed hostilities. Foremost among these men was John Adams, of Massachusetts. For months, he and a few others had been agitating in Congress for the establishment of an American fleet. They argued that a fleet would defend the seacoast towns, protect vital trade, retaliate against British raiders, and make it possible to seek out among neutral nations of the world the arms and stores that would make resistance possible.

Still, the establishment of a navy seemed too bold a move for some of the timid men in Congress. Some southerners agreed that a fleet would protect and secure the trade of New England but denied that it would that of the southern colonies. Most of the delegates did not consider the break with England as final and feared that a navy implied sovereignty and independence. Others thought a navy a hasty and foolish challenge to the mightiest fleet the world had seen. The most the pro-navy men could do was to get Congress to urge each colony to fit out armed vessels for the protection of their coasts and harbors.

Then, on 3 October, Rhode Island's delegates laid before Congress a bold resolution for the building and equipping of an American fleet, as soon as possible. When the motion came to the floor for debate, Samuel Chase, of Maryland, attacked it, saying it was "the maddest Idea in the World to think of building an American Fleet." Even pro-navy members found the proposal too vague. It lacked specifics and no one could tell how much it would cost.

If Congress was yet unwilling to embrace the idea of establishing a navy as a permanent measure, it could be tempted by short-term opportunities. Fortuitously, on 5 October, Congress received intelligence of two English brigs, unarmed and without convoy, laden with munitions, leaving England bound for Quebec. Congress immediately appointed a committee to consider how to take advantage of this opportunity. Its members were all New Englanders and all ardent supporters of a navy. They recommended first that the governments of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut be asked to dispatch armed vessels to lay in wait to intercept the munitions ships; next they outlined a plan for the equipping by Congress of two armed vessels to cruise to the eastward to intercept any ships bearing supplies to the British army. Congress let this plan lie on the table until 13 October, when another fortuitous event occurred in favor of the naval movement. A letter from General Washington was read in Congress in which he reported that he had taken under his command, at Continental expense, three schooners to cruise off Massachusetts to intercept enemy supply ships. The commander in chief had preempted members of Congress reluctant to take the first step of fitting out warships under Continental authority. Since they already had armed vessels cruising in their name, it was not such a big step to approve two more. The committee's proposal, now appearing eminently reasonable to the reluctant members, was adopted.

The Continental Navy grew into an important force. Within a few days, Congress established a Naval Committee charged with equipping a fleet. This committee directed the purchasing, outfitting, manning, and operations of the first ships of the new navy, drafted subsequent naval legislation, and prepared rules and regulations to govern the Continental Navy's conduct and internal administration.

Over the course of the War of Independence, the Continental Navy sent to sea more than fifty armed vessels of various types. The navy's squadrons and cruisers seized enemy supplies and carried correspondence and diplomats to Europe, returning with needed munitions. They took nearly 200 British vessels as prizes, some off the British Isles themselves, contributing to the demoralization of the enemy and forcing the British to divert warships to protect convoys and trade routes. In addition, the navy provoked diplomatic crises that helped bring France into the war against Great Britain. The Continental Navy began the proud tradition carried on today by our United States Navy, and whose birthday we celebrate each year in October.

Columbus Day = October 12!

Columbus Day is celebrated throughout the Western Hemisphere and to a lesser extent in Italy and Spain. It commemorates the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the New World in 1492. His arrival to the Americas marked a sustained and permanent link between the two continents.

In the U.S., the holiday is celebrated as a national holiday on the second Monday in October (which happens to be the 10th this year), because of our desire to have 3-day weekends at the expense of celebrating legitimate history...Just another case of our leaders being a bunch of fools with no sense of history - not that they don't know it, they just want to de-legitimize it.

Needless to say (or it should be), Columbus' discovery of the New World is one of the most important discoveries in the history of mankind.  One which truly changed the world - FOR THE BETTER!

After seeking support for his journey from the village of Genoa, Henry VII of England, and John II of Portugal, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella finally agreed to underwrite is voyage in hopes of finding a western passage to India. Despite the many naysayers, most scholars readily accepted that the world was round. Columbus was well read in Plato, Aristotle, Marco Polo, Ptolemy, and others thus supporting his hypothesis of a western route to the east. What he did not know was the distance and the fact that a great land stood in his way.

On August 3, 1492, he set sail with three ships, the Santa Maria, the Pinta, and the Nina and a ninety person crew. Just as the crew was becoming mutinous, land was sighted. It was 10 PM on Friday, October 11, 1492. They sailed for a few more hours before lowering their sails and went ashore the next morning. The landing spot is believed to be Watling Island today. On shore, they encountered curious natives, many trees, fresh water, and much fruit.

Columbus left the New World on January 4, 1493 with 6 natives on board, but leaving behind 39 members of his crew. Upon his arrival to Europe, he was greeted with great fanfare. He quickly reassembled new support for a subsequent journey and left on September 25 of the same year. In all, he embarked on four journeys to the New Land.

Ironic as it seems, Columbus never fully understood the extent of his discovery. While he died in wealth and great acclaim, he believed he had discovered islands off the cost of India, not a New World. Furthermore, through an editorial error some years hence, Americus Vespucci, and Italian explorer, was acknowledged as the discoverer of the new land thus lending the land to be named of him.

The Tammany Society of New York City first celebrated Columbus' October 12 arrival to America in 1792. Subsequent celebrations were held throughout the years until Alvah Adams, the governor of Colorado formally requested his state to observe the holiday in 1905. Other cities and states followed Colorado's example until 1937 when President Franklin Delano Roosevelt proclaimed it a holiday.

Yom Kippur

For my Jewish friends...It's important that non-Jews who celebrate America recognize there is no America-as-we-know-it without the Judean portion of this great Judeo-Christian nation.
Begins: October 11, 2016 at Sunset...Ends: October 12, 2016 at nightfall.

Reposted from jewfaq.org

Yom Kippur is probably the most important holiday of the Jewish year. Many Jews who do not observe any other Jewish custom will refrain from work, fast and/or attend synagogue services on this day. Yom Kippur occurs on the 10th day of Tishri. The holiday is instituted at Leviticus 23:26 et seq.

The name "Yom Kippur" means "Day of Atonement," and that pretty much explains what the holiday is. It is a day set aside to "afflict the soul," to atone for the sins of the past year.
 G-d inscribes all of our names in the "books". On Yom Kippur, the judgment entered in these books is sealed. This day is, essentially, your last appeal, your last chance to change the judgment, to demonstrate your repentance and make amends.

Yom Kippur atones only for sins between man and G-d, not for sins against another person. To atone for sins against another person, you must first seek reconciliation with that person, righting the wrongs you committed against them if possible. That must all be done before Yom Kippur.

Yom Kippur is a complete Sabbath; no work can be performed on that day. It is well-known that you are supposed to refrain from eating and drinking (even water) on Yom Kippur. It is a complete, 25-hour fast beginning before sunset on the evening before Yom Kippur and ending after nightfall on the day of Yom Kippur. The
 Talmud also specifies additional restrictions that are less well-known: washing and bathing, anointing one's body (with cosmetics, deodorants, etc.), wearing leather shoes (Orthodox Jews routinely wear canvas sneakers under their dress clothes on Yom Kippur), and engaging in sexual relations are all prohibited on Yom Kippur.

As always, any of these restrictions can be lifted where a threat to life or health is involved. In fact, children under the age of nine and women in childbirth (from the time labor begins until three days after birth) are not permitted to fast, even if they want to. Older children and women from the third to the seventh day after childbirth are permitted to fast, but are permitted to break the fast if they feel the need to do so. People with other illnesses should consult a physician and a rabbi for advice.

Most of the holiday is spent in the synagogue, in prayer. In Orthodox synagogues, services begin early in the morning (8 or 9 AM) and continue until about 3 PM. People then usually go home for an afternoon nap and return around 5 or 6 PM for the afternoon and evening services, which continue until nightfall. The services end at nightfall, with the blowing of the tekiah gedolah, a long blast on the shofar. See
 Rosh Hashanah for more about the shofar and its characteristic blasts.

It is customary to wear white on the holiday, which symbolizes purity and calls to mind the promise that our sins shall be made as white as snow (Is. 1:18). Some people wear a kittel, the white robe in which the dead are buried.

"(The Donald Trump) recordings reveal exactly nothing that we all didn't already know about Donald Trump.  And Trump's lewd and crude comments made 11 years ago do not diminish the dangers of a Clinton election in 30 days...This election remains a binary choice (Hillary or Trump)...This is not a defense of what Trump said or did.  It's an argument for a sense of proportion.  For many Republican leaders the Trump tape is disqualifying but Benghazi isn't, pay to play at the State Department isn't, selling weapons to ISIS isn't, harassing Bill's victims isn't, compromising national security isn't.  Do whatever you want to the country, just don't talk dirty!" - Chris Buskirk

That's the 2016 Election in a nutshell:  It's Hillary or Trump, and nothing we have seen or heard from Trump in the past week (including his loose mouth) is new...It was always a given that he is a very flawed candidate - a very flawed human being.

It is also known that Hillary Clinton is an extreme Lefty, who has as many or more skeletons in her closet than Donald Trump does...SKELETONS WHICH HAVE EFFECTED THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND NATIONAL DEFENSE!

It still comes down to a simple set of questions:
1.  Who has done more to hurt the U.S.?
2.  Who will do more to hurt the U.S. in the future?

"I choose to vote for Trump not because I like the cut of his jib, but because Hillary Clinton is an extinction-level menace who is likely to literally destroy the United States of America.  We're strong enough to deal with an idiot.  I don't think our culture is strong enough to deal with a committed, focused leftist monster like her.  That's my reasoning.  That's why he will get my vote.  That's the only reason he will get my vote." - Kurt Schlichter

...But, I am not foolish enough to believe many people will be able to look past the 'shiny trinket' the Left has put in front of them - the 'Trump tapes'...Some will choose to support Hillary, some will choose to stay home - a repeat of how we got President Obama.

Oh, did you notice that?  No matter who runs as a Republican, they are painted as racist, woman hating, Nazi devils (Romney, McCain, etc.), and useless stupidity is the Democrats favorite tool for distracting the voting public from their own failures...FAILURES WHICH CONTINUE TO PILE UP YEAR AFTER YEAR - DECADE AFTER DECADE!

I'm sure many more twists and turns will happen for both Hillary and Trump in the next four weeks (leaks, tapes, emails, EVERYTHING IMAGINABLE AND UNIMAGINABLE), but I'm also sure at this point in time Hillary has a healthy lead when in comes to the Electoral Map - which is all that really matters.

There will be a price to pay if I am right in this assumption.  Unfortunately, it will be paid by the very people who will push Hillary over the threshold to win - NORMAL MIDDLE AMERICA.

Just a little something to keep in mind as the next 30 days come and go.
