Ending the Week

From E-Mail

Q - What are you reading these days, LL? 


I just downloaded two books on Kindle: Fields of Fire by James Webb and G-Man by Stephen Hunter. 

A - I recently finished The Malocchio Of Bodie by Jules Smith and Rimworld - Into the Green by Jim Curtis (both of whom comment on this blog from time to time).

Proof of Collusion (finally)


in other Domestic News

The Deep State has a narrative that they want us to swallow. Despite the shrill, hysterical, absurdities spouted by the corrupt, elite, lying mainstream media, I think that they're being ignored. They think so too and it bothers them.

The great and near great are lining up for the 2020 general election. Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and other greats within the Democrat Party are making the circuit to try and get their names out there so you'll put them in charge. The mainstream media will support their efforts. There's even talk of Hillary (reset and improved Hillary) running in 2020 to win what she feels that Donald Trump stole from her.

There are theories that people who aren't attractive or talented enough to be Hollywood actors are drawn to politics. Many are lawyers who can't make it in that profession. Some like Al Franken (D-MN) are failed comedians.  Congressman Hank Johnson (below) is a lawyer. Watch and listen as he explains his concerns about US troop deployments to Guam that might cause it to capsize. He'd make a great talking head on MSNBC or CNN once he completes his term in the House of Representatives. But I don't think that he'll be leaving soon. In 2014, Johnson was named the 18th most effective Democrat in the 112th Congress [out of 204 Democratic members] according to a study by Vanderbilt University and the University of Virginia (UVA). Yes, he's among the brightest.


The amazing thing about America is that we do so well despite our leadership.

  1. Liz was spot on, but what difference does it make!
    Please tell me that Hanky Johnson was not serious, because if this is the level of intelligence in government we are in deep trouble... wait, wait... this was said in 2010. He has since moved on to calling Jewish settlers... like termites...

  2. Insanity in individuals is something rare - but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. Friedrich Nietzsche

    1. Nietzsche was a weird cat, but he did call them, didn't he?

    2. Or, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in awhile.

    3. He was mighty proud of his construct: Zarathustra. I think that your blind squirrel analogy is more on point.

  3. Biden, Pelosi, and Waters. It's rather sad that Uncle Joe is the best of that group.

    1. Waters is both black and a female, checking two critical boxes.

    1. Hunter is always a good read. Just like Curtis.

  5. I think the Admiral deserves a medal for not laughing out loud like I did.

    1. He's an Admiral BECAUSE he didn't laugh out loud. I think that you have to develop those skills if you want four stars.

  6. They used to say that Britons were lions led by donkeys. If the hysterical lying media had its way, we'd be led by an insane clown posse.

    Note that Trump didn't grovel and bow to the House of Saud.

    1. The Saudis were not impressed by our mealy-mouthed semi-Muslim negro president, or by his bowing and scraping. Likewise, Hillary Clinton, with her endless demands for massive donations to her "charity" was not respected. President Trump is known as a man of his word who has surrounded himself by capable people rather than by political toadies/insane clowns.

  7. Thank you for the plug, Larry! I'm currently working on a second and third follow ups to The Malocchio Of Bodie. There's more demons to be uncovered in the Wild West yet...;)

    1. There are a lot of historical characters and places that jump off the page in the West. It's an interesting canvas on which to paint a story.

  8. I have been reading Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign. It's pretty fascinating. I recommend it, even though it is written by people sympathetic to Hillary, and even though the authors still really don't get the real reasons Trump won, beyond the gigantic flaws of both Hillary and her campaign.

    1. Progressive people don't get out much. If they had, they would understand how so much of America despises them.
