    It was all KKK, Nazis and white supremacists on the Sunday talk shows because hey, we got to create somebody to hate, how else are we going to make the bad people hate us more and take over our country? And don’t go telling me a very small minority of white people are part of any kind of nasty group, there’s a plan afoot here, don’t mess it up.

    Yeah, that’s the ticket.

    The Sunday political talk shows Aug 20th, 2017

    I can’t believe I watched this on Fox Saturday but my lying eyes saw what they saw.

    Some boobaloob said, to the effect, that the majority of terror type attacks in the country were down by right wing extremists and he mentioned Dylann Roof.

    And FOX, of all places, let him get away with saying this!

    So I did some checking. I searched Google for “Terrorist attacks in America” an boom, got a complete listing, times, dates and perpetrators.

    Now darn if every incident involving a trash can and some matches didn’t come up but never mind, I did some studying.

    From 2000 on, there were 68 events in the USA that were considered terrorist attacks. Of these, 40 of them were done by Muslims or those who worked for Muslims.

    28 of them were by what might be called white extremists.

    I’d note that the BIG terror attacks, 9-11-01 obviously, the Florida night club, the shoe bomber....were all Muslim started but being thorough here, there were still 28 considered Alt-Right but most of those were one guy who ended up killing himself. Dylann Roof was a mental nut job but he did killed 9 innocent African Americans in their own church .

    Here’s what I don’t understand. All of this documented, God bless America, so why is an asshole allowed to get on Fox and say this lie that most terror attacks are caused by white extremists?

    Why didn’t someone shut the nut liar up and recite the facts?

    Okay, thank me very much, here’s the facts. Of the 68 terror attacks since 2000, 40 were Muslim began and 28 mostly but lone nut jobs who ended up dead.

    Why are they allowed to recite lies, badaboom, when we live in an age where all information is available via a couple of handstrokes?

    On Fox of all things???

    Got some news on a personal note.

    I was contacted by NAMI- National Alliance of Mental Illness. I’d attended a class locally by them because of my daughter’s serious case of Munchausen syndrome, a mental illness that has the victims as addicted to sympathy as any heroin addict is to heroin.

    They talked to me about this matter as I did write a book about it, for 40 years now putting up with my daughter and this craziness as she received millions (I am NOT exaggerating) from taxpayers as she faked and pretended her way through life.

    The biggest breakthrough came with Michelle Carter. You might remember her, the fine, fine young woman who talked her pathetic boyfriend into killing himself.

    The very first reply she made when they asked her why she did it? “I WANTED PEOPLE TO FEEL SORRY FOR ME!”

    No. Not HIM....but ME.

    I knew immediately, it ain’t rocket science...MUNCHEUSSEN!!

    Then the shock sank in. In the two years that my daughter lived in the house that I bought her that she later destroyed (ndeed these Muncheussen people are lovely, lovely people, they love no one but themselves) THREE PEOPLE CLOSE TO HER COMMITTED SUICIDE!!

    Our whole family is in shock.

    This would include daughter’s best friend and get this, the suicide victim’s parents would not let daughter attend the funeral. Why?

    Then the lady next door to daughter dropped dead in her arms. Well she was an old lady and this was bound to happen but come on, how many people around someone die so oddly that no one questions it?

    So while I was in the hospital two weeks ago to get a minor procedure on my legs involving sticking balloons and stents in the arteries, I got to talking to the nurses. I told them about that neighbor, who died in that hospital in that I (yes ME) called the ambulance and they managed to save the woman but she died a week later.

    They all looked at each other with knowing eyes. Turns out that this woman did die oddly and that daughter had been hanging around the whole week before her death. Oh yes, daughter is banned from the local hospital because hospitals hate Muncheussen patients.

    Finally her sister’s boyfriend too committed suicide, this a week after she used his apartment for a week, to attend her friend’s suicide of all things.

    Anyway, none of this can be proved but I got a deep hurting feeling that daughter was involved with all this and I’ve no doubt, none whatsoever, she’d find a way to kill me because you get tons of sympathy if your mother should die.

    Anyway, NAMI wants me to represent them talking about this awful mental illness cause guys, it’s getting to be a real problem.

    Daughter has threatened suicide 287 times, I got times and dates. She is obsessed.

    Also NAMI will have what they call a “family to family” series of meetings on mental illness and dealing with same. I will be teaching the class on Muncheussen.

    This is all causing quite the stir here in these parts because everyone in my church knows about this but finally, I get some vindication in that the largest mental health organization asked me to be their spokesperson.

    Also setting me up to begin discussing this on a national PR basis.

    Cause when you got mentally ill people talking people into either killing themselves or those around them, the largest mental health organization needs to get involved.

    And yes I did tell them that.

    This society encourages victimhood. In its own way we live in a culture that does not stop people like my daughter.

    There have been FOUR major Muncheussen cases this past year....the woman in Florida who was poisoning her child while he was in the hospital, the nutjob who feigned some kind of kidnapping by “Hispanic” woman, some girl featured on HBO who had her boyfriend kill her mother then accused her mother of having Muncheussen by Proxy and finally, the lovely, kind and sweet Michelle Carter who told her boyfriend to get back in the rigged car to his suicidal death.

    And there’s many, many more of these people.

    And they can sell ice to Eskimos and talk poor tortured souls into taking their own life that they(the Muncheussen nuts) might get sympathy for their loss.

    I am going to be vindicated and don’t forget, I did write a book all about it, copyrighted in 2005, back when I didn’t know what Muncheussen was but I tell the story all about it.

    Some Delaware Politics

    They really needed to put a big picture of this 81 year old woman who got caught using about seven bucks worth of tickets to ride the bumper cars?

    This is from

    I think President Trump ought to denounce this woman for crimes that prevent America from being great again.

    Quote below:

    An 81-year-old Rockville, Maryland, woman was charged Wednesday with attempting to use counterfeit tickets to access Funland ride in Rehoboth Beach, authorities announced Friday. 

    According to Rehoboth Beach Police, a longtime employee of Funland operating the bumper cars contacted officers around 7:30 p.m. on August 9, 2017, regarding tickets he’d been given by Marilyn Hammerman, which he’d identified as fraudulent due to his experience with previous incidents. 

    Hammerman was found to be in possession of approximately 20 fraudulent tickets and was charged with misdemeanor theft of services under $1,500 “following an investigation into the allegations,” police said. 
    She was released on $100 unsecured bond. 

    Political Gossip Odds and Ends

    How about that Anthony Scaramucci guesting yesterday on the Sunday political talk shows and now he will be joining Stephen Colbert?

    Guy made quite a name for himself for a job he held ten days then lost due to lack of class.

    As for Kim Jung-Un launching missiles to Guam, first I did not know that Guam was an American territory and I did not know it was so close to Korea.

    This is also the country that goofball congress guy Hank Johnson said was going to flip over.

    Kim Un surrenders.
    What’s going on with Bannon?
    Questions about Charlotte Virginia and who began it all.

    I am to understand that the fat guy with the bad haircut pulled back on his plan to blow up Guam.

    What a dolt that guy is.

    And the Chinese use him to do their dirty work and hey, that’s pretty smart.


    I am so confused about this Steve Bannon thing . First he was the best thing since popcorn.

    Then dark references to the man’s secret “Deep State” side.

    Now he’s on the good side.

    This is how it goes with this administration. The media and political players put out so much conflicting information that the public is meant to be confused and draw a conclusion that this President is not up to the job.

    So Charlottesville Virginia is all a big scam? For it was Shakespeare who told us all the world is a stage and so they put up the drama.

    Here’s how it went:

    “We got the Charlottesville town council to vote to remove the statue. Did you get that guy from Wall Street Matters to apply for a protest permit in the name of “Right Wing Opiions”?

    Terry Mcauliffe sat back and waited for a response from Charlottesville’s Mayor Signer.

    “Got it all, thanks for that direct line to Val Jarrett. She gets things done with the snap of the fingers.”

    Governor Mcauliffe smiled. “Make sure you get those cops to stay away from that site. We don’t need cops getting hurt. I’m going to use this event to launch my presidential run.”

    Mayor Signer sat back, laced his fingers in comfort, and smiled. He figured he’d have a shot at the VP slot maybe.

    “Took care of the cops and worked out reasons why they will suddenly leave once the protest begins. Also got the town council to void the protest permit and if all goes per plan, the statue protestors will cross paths with the “KKK” and “Neo-Nazis” we been training for almost a year now. Created a web site and everything.”

    Governor McAuliffe smiled again. “We’ll put Trump between a rock and a hard place like he’s never been on before. Got all the Sunday talk show hosts ready to beat up reps of the administration. And in the end, doubts will be cast upon every voter who supports Trump that they too are probably Nazis and white supremacists.”

    Mayor Signer smiled.

    Governor McAuliffe uncrossed his legs in preparation to leave.

    “Remember Joe, there’s no rule you got to take over a country with an army. Political correctness and control of the media will do the job just fine and with far less blood shed.”

    Thank me very much.

    -Natalee Holloway body found?-sick of Charlottesville.

    It’s been quite a few years since Natalee Holloway took a trip to Aruba and met Joran Vandersloot, a piece of human garbage.

    Too bad Greta Susteren moved on because she was in that story for over a year.

    Then the lovely Joran went to Peru and met another female he murdered because, Vandersloot is getting to be a real star at killing women.

    Anyway it is alleged that human remains were found buried in a lawn near to where Natalee spent her last hours.

    I don’t believe it.

    I remember when some shyster promised Natalee’s parents that he had a device that could find bodies under water. It was a scam.

    Further, why on earth did Joran and his father go out on the boat that night? That was when they threw Natalee’s body overboard, not going to the obvious effort of burying her body on land.

    And further, it was revealed that Vandersloot’s father had to break dead Natalee’s legs in order to fit her into some kind of container for her body.

    Why bother with that? Just throw her body in the ground.

    Joran’s father, Peter, is dead now and burning in hell I suspect. For his son is a pox on humanity.

    Finally I am so sick of Charlottesville stories, none of them true.

    Move on but find out why Terry Mcauliffe orchestrated that disaster.

    Barcelona terror attack. Locally tearing down statues.

    Yesterday certainly was a confusing day with that car attack in Barcelona, killing 13 people and injuring hundreds of others.

    This is how Europe is losing, people. They have no borders, no immigration rules, they let these heathens come into their country, rape the women and murder the shoppers.

    Please President Trump, put up the wall and stop the dangerous entry of these thugs and thieves immigrants into our country.

    Below is a press release by a local Sussex county critter, Ruth Briggs King, a well-liked and very active politico from Sussex county Delaware.

    Her response to a request by the local NAACP to tear down some statue that offends them.

     CONTACT: State Rep. Ruth Briggs King, 302-577-8515
    Rep. Briggs King is responding to published demands - issued only late yesterday - by the Lower Sussex County NAACP for the state to revoke the Georgetown Historical Society’s $11,500 in Grant-in-Aid funding if it does not remove a Confederate monument on display at the museum it operates – the Nutter D. Marvel Museum.
    Rep. Briggs King stated: “The grant funding that was appropriated this past year for the Georgetown Historical Society was only a very small portion of a much larger funding measure for nonprofits throughout the entire state. The $37.2 million Grant-in-Aid bill was considered and approved by the 62 members of the General Assembly and signed into law by Governor Carney.
    We have a certain process for allocating funding for Delaware’s nonprofit organizations and to begin now with efforts to revoke funding for a particular organization outside of that process is a slippery slope I am sure no one wants to venture upon. I continue to fully support a more thorough review of each nonprofit group that receives Grant-in-Aid funding, to ensure fairness and equity to the public and the organizations. But, to single out the Georgetown Historical Society – or any other group for that matter – in this particular way when nothing illegal has occurred and to immediately withdraw the funding they use for many important and worthy projects is not something I support at all.
    I remain firm in my position that Grant-in-Aid funding for the Georgetown Historical Society should remain intact and I look forward to a review of all Grant-in-Aid recipients in the upcoming year.”

    Steve Bannon out.

    Not that this is any secret. It’s been bandied about that the Brietbart King was leaving the White House.

    I got a theory. I think that the White House is creating their own press pool. It begins with Anthony Scaramucci then on to Steve Bannon. I can’t come up with new members but maybe Reince Priebus, Spicer?

    Soon the afternoon White House press corps will be filled with this new press contingent and oh dear Lord please get rid of the WORST of them all, Jake Tapper. Move on to the next worst, Chuck Todd. Keep going and NEVER, not EVER, give George Steponallofus a tidbit or a leak.

    It’s a crazy theory but when you got an “army” coming after you, you got to get rid of the army.

    We shall see.

    Keep close eye upon all news coming out of this recent event in Virginia. Because everybody was hired by somebody and almost none by any right wing group.

    All this Sunday the liberal hosts kept insisting that President Trump admit he was wrong and should apologize on behalf of his “base”.

    That would be me and you.

    FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): CIA Director Mike Pompeo; Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. Lindsay

    Graham doesn’t let up where McCain left off

    President fails as healer-in-chief=F.Chuck opening on MTP. So impartial and fair that opening line, eh?

    Scaramucci on interview with This Week. I did quite enjoy Scaramucci’s interview on this show and think he will be around more in the future.

    STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): White House national security adviser Tom Bossert; Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo.; Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich.; former National Intelligence Director James Clapper.

    awful host doesn’t give up with White House National Security Advisor-Jake Tapper. The WORST Sunday political talk show host ever just wouldn’t let up with Tom Bossert until he said what Tapper wanted.

    Now it’s possible there’s way more to this story than is being told. Quote below.

    She’s 81 years old and wanted to ride on the bumper cars. She allegedly used an entire SEVEN bucks worth of fake tickets.

    I say hang her from the nearest pole! Oh, and also, they printed a big picture of her on the WDEL page. Was this necessary?

    There is no justice in any Delaware court....none. Go around if you’re looking for any.

    Scaramucci is being interviewed by George Steponallofus.

    I’ve been thinking.....I think this whole Scaramucci hiring was part of a plan to get the guy in some inside position, somehow get him fired, then he can go on to interviews which will then accept him as a guest and such with perhaps the inside story straight from any Trump, Donald, Donald Jr., Ivanka......

    Also, here’s food for thought....this recent renovation of the White pre-plan, complete surprise?

    I’m thinking they’re looking for bugs. And I’m thinking they’ll find plenty.

    Don Baylor died; tornados in Delaware?; Coal on North Korea sanctions list, unanimous


    I was paused when I heard that former Baltimore Oriole Don Baylor died, only 68 years old.

    My mind raced for the memory and sure, Don Baylor played right field for the O's, a dependable player showed up every day and played with finesse and talent.

    Don Baylor, famous Baltimore Oriole, may he rest in peace.


    Since everyone's on vacation not much going on politically but we did have some tornados touch down in little ole Delaware right before I write this.

    We have had tornados in Delaware, often little "Dust Devils" spinning sweetly on the side of the road.

    I remember one year when a hell of a hurricane roared through Delaware, right down the road from my house.


    North Korea has been put on sanctions by the United Nations, by a unanimous vote, no less.

    This creep Kim Jung-Un needs to be in the crosshairs of a sniper and boomb…boomb. End of the guy with the worst haircut on the planet.

    And no brains.

    North Korea Acting Up


    Below a quote:

    <<The new analysis completed last month by the Defense Intelligence Agency comes on the heels of another intelligence assessment that sharply raises the official estimate for the total number of bombs in the communist country’s atomic arsenal. The U.S. calculated last month that up to 60 nuclear weapons are now controlled by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Some independent experts believe the number of bombs is much smaller.>>>


    Kim Jung-Un is a fat slob of a turd with the world's worst haircut.

    Evidently he is in the business of developing nuclear weapons with China and Iran his main customers.

    Now he shakes his fat fists and vows to nuke America….in, of all places…GUAM!!!

    Seriously, Guam?

    Well whatever cause all this guy wants is more money and free food cause he knows he's got the west by the gonads.

    South Korea sits nearby and that now vibrant and growing country could get blown to the ashpile.

    Japan also sits close and heh, who knows, Kim Jung-un might decide to lob some nukes to China.

    The UN agreement to put strong sanctions on North Korea has Kim Un all upset.

    I might have tongue a bit in cheek here but this guy is dangerous and what's the deal with one silly little dictator holding the whole world in its bad decisions?

    Someone needs to put Kim Jung-Un in the sight of a sniper rifle and end the problem of him being alive.

    Threatening to nuke America….not a good idea.

    Thursday Date-8/10/17

    North Korea keeps up threats, President Trump guilty of threatening Kim Jung-Un.


    Had my nails done yesterday by an immigrant from Vietnam. Goodness I told him my experience with Vietnam, to include singing in the rain, protest, and a first husband who went to Canada to avoid being drafted.

    The fellow told me how his parents saved and scrimped and worked so he could come to America.

    Anyway, it was quite an interesting hour.

    Me and the Vietnamese manicurist did discuss the fat little dictator from North Korea with the world's worst haircut.

    "China!" the South Vietnamese guy shouted (seems the North Vietnamese are still the enemies). China is the source of all problems in that area "Steve" told me.


    Steve told me about the awful NorthVietnamese, the Russians, the awful Chinese and he thinks someone needs to blow Kim Jung-Un off the map.

    Now we have liberals all over the place mad at Trump for daring to say that America will pour fire and fury down upon them if they dare to soar nukes to the American territory of Guam.

    Why does that statement make the little snowflake pussies get all upset?

    I read the wisest words of all somewhere recently, forget where, forget by who.

    But it you keep threatening to kill people at some point they are going to believe you.

    It ain't rocket science.

    Raiding Montafort's home, the Mitch Mcconnell flap.


    So the FBI conducts a pre-dawn raid into former Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort.


    For sure Manafort has a lawyer of his own so I must assume this matter has been handled legally.

    But somebody sure wanted us to know about it because it happened in late July of this year.

    Are we to be scared?


    If I had to name one of the two dumbest political things done this past year, number one be that NJ Fatso plopping his big butt down on a lawn chair on a private beach when he had already shut down such private beaches controlled by state government across New Jersey.

    The infamous Mitch McConnell comment about having a president who does not know what he's doing is the number two in stupid political action in 2017.

    For the record and for a smile, appointing that Anthony Scaramucci as Communications Director was one of the top ten of this category.

    So McConnell tells a meeting of his constituents that Trump is just not up to snuff and lacks experience.

    Of course that's what they all think. And they are sniffing with disdain.

    But the citizens of McConnell were not amused and it sure made talking points across the fruited plains.

    Diana, a tragedy waiting to happen


    Seems the tragic anniversary of Diana's death is coming up soon and since all the politicos are on vacation telling their constituents how awful President Trump is, thought I'd offer my thoughts on Princess Diana.

    First, during Diana's several years of fame and attention I was very much the sort of female who followed her life.

    I am somewhat of a fashion fan and on this, Diana was one to watch. Just a hobby, an interest, she liked it too judging by her flair for fashion.

    As for Prince Charles and the babies, well I am an American and such as royalty didn't interest me all that much. But how could one ignore?

    Even now I pay attention to Prince William, his lovely and classy wife who doesn't encourage paparazzi to follow her everywhere, and their two adorable children.

    What's the REAL true story of Princess Diana? Because I will provide in few words.

    She was a very pretty 19 year old woman, very fertile, nubile and would produce healthy heirs.

    Prince Charles had been in love with that Camilla woman forever but she had been married, already had kids, and didn't mean the silly British unwritten rule of appearing to be virginal.

    I'm pretty sure Diana knew that Charles only wanted her to produce and heir and a spare. In fact I've seen her quoted saying such a thing.

    Charles is now married to Camilla so we know it wasn't fake. Diana was but a young woman but she knew why Charles chose her. It was obvious those two didn't even like each other. And trust me, I go around that Prince Charles person should he ever cross my path because by me he's a liberal dumb bell.

    So Diana gets all these male lovers, to include the Hewett and the Doctor Khan. Turns out Princess Di was quite the stalker.

    In short she was a childish, silly woman who created an image of herself that almost worked.

    Until she met up with Dodi Fahid and talk about a loser. This guy had not one thing going for him except a rich father.

    Indeed it was often Diana herself who called the photographers to tell them where she was going to be.

    All the boo-hooing about nosey photographers makes me smile. Diana was a total nobody without that paparazzi.

    She hops into a car driven by a drunk, no seatbelt, and the inevitable happened.

    It's not that Princess Diana deserved a happy and fulfilled life. But she made a lot of those choices herself and they were, how to say this kindly? Really bad choices.

    So here’s my big decision of the week.

    I have two dogs. One is a rescue dog, short-haired German pointer, now 6 years old, settled, mostly content. The other is an American Bull dog, 2 years old, the last of my awful Muncheussen’s daughter’s dogs (hoped y’all watched Michelle Carter’s story this past week, helped boyfriend kill himself. My daughter’s best friend committed suicide and lady next door to her dropped dead in her arms. Muncheussen, people. These people are murderers.)

    Blanca is, like I said, 2 years old, all white smile at the name, lived with cats her whole life and another dog. She is spayed, very healthy, well house-trained.

    I just can’t handle her any more.

    First, she’s extremely strong. Y’all know anything about bulldogs? Put a harness on Blanca and she can tow a car.

    I have no control of her. I cannot take her to Vets or overnight boarding. The other day she liked to kill me as I attempted to heft her onto bed for a sore paw. The whole world around me went black, totally black. I feel I was closest to death that I have ever been.

    If I somehow manage to get her into car for transport it almost kills me.

    She’s a sweet dog and I love her but everytime another human being comes by, she goes nuts. She’s like a white volcano, going round in circles in effusive joy. She jumps on people; she’s wild.

    Jackie, the rescue dog, is, like I said, six years old, perfect age for me. She is much calmer and she would make a perfect dog for the rest of my dog-owning life.

    The two dogs don’t fight or anything but they don’t especially like each other. They are totally different breeds. If I had advice to give to those who want to own two dogs to keep each other company....fine. But get two of the same or very similar breeds.

    Blanca needs more socialization. Sure she loves me but this young dog’s uncontrollable behavior is not for an old lady with health issues.

    I know somewhere out there is a family ideal for Blanca. A family with dogs....yep. Cats?...Yep. People? Wow, she needs maybe four or five to keep her occupied.

    I hurt inside but just can’t do it.

    Wish me luck.

    The most distinctive note one must make over today’s pile of Sunday political talk shows this 8/6/17 is what they DIDN’T discuss.

    For not once was the Pakistani scandal with Debbie Wasserman-Schultz mentioned.

    You’d think the betrayal of the country would be worth a mention.

    FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Senator Thom Tillis, R-N.C.

    Round table bashes Trump, speculates on new Chief of Staff

    MEET THE PRESS (NBC): Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.; Gov. Jerry Brown, D-Calif.

    Flake proves his name with his bogus book copied from Barry Goldwater.

    FACE THE NATION (CBS): Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark.; Govs. John Kasich, R-Ohio, and John Hickenlooper, D-Colo.; former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

    John Kasich spends entire week making himself a guest. How can we stop this man who does not speak for most Republicans?

    THIS WEEK (ABC): Presidential adviser Kellyanne Conway; Sens. Chris Coons, D-Del., Tillis

    Kellyanne Conway whips Steponallofus’ butt

    STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.; Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.; Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J.

    Two traitors sponsoring new law to prevent the firing of Robert Mueller

    Kasich begins dialing the phone on Monday and works it all week. For he is meant to appear on the political talk shows and guide us all.

    Nobody can stand the guy in his state but the Sunday political talk shows love him.

    I want to slap him silly.

    Here’s the thing about Senator Coons.....

    .....he’s who, eventually, ran and beat Christine O’Donnell.

    to this day we get Republican idiots who snark that we should have kept Mike Castle, at least he was a Republican.


    I am quite happy to have Chris Coons if O’Donnell didn’t get it. COD won in south Delaware handily but Wilmington people, a little Baltimore it is, has voters three to one to us in the south.

    BUT I’d argue....okay so Coons is a Democrat. At least he’s not trying to appear to be on my side, which Castle never was.

    We in Delaware were the first to primary a RINO outta there.

    And the only way we’re going to get real representatives of the people is slowly and methodically vote out the RINOS.

    Those political elite have the power and we are but idiots who know not what we do.

    I’m very interested in seeing how the Republicans vote on this law to prevent the firing of Mueller.

    They obviously want to make sure Trump gets found guilty and impeached.

    Morning AB, All. As always, thank you AB for doing this thread so reliably and keeping the peace with gentle thread policing. Thank you Bray for weekly written wisdom, Thank all yon contributors for excellent commentary to flesh it all out.

    Below are the words from my daily political diary. It is quite long so scroll on by if not interested. But do stay around and add your commentary and point of view to the thread.

    Scaramucci fired/retired

    I am so confused about this White House and the staff.

    I thought that Scaramucci was a most handsome fellow but he got involved with that reporter and the curse words and yes, it does give pause, no?

    Now we have a new Chief of Staff and it is apparent that President Trump is trying to get the “House” in order, such as it is.

    Lots of rumors about the new Communications Director. Could be Laura Ingraham, could be Kelly Ann Conway.

    We shall see.

    Wednesday Date-8/2/2017


    Let us not quibble.

    The arrest and discovery of that hoodlum gang of Pakistani spies in the House and able to dig up all things classified is the story of the year.

    For Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is waist deep in this muck and I’m thinking former President Obama is involved and definitely Hillary.

    For the Anwans sold used car, property not theirs and American intelligence to the highest bidder.

    It is covered, slightly, in the Lamestream media, when there are all the elements of a hit movie.

    It is rumored that Debbie Wasserman-Schultz(DWS) is involved romantically with her spy lover. Who worked for McDonald’s, by the way.


    There is a video showing DWS lambasting the DC police for daring to do their jobs….”there will be consequences”.


    What’s NOT a joke is that this crew was able to gain access to America’s intelligence and folks the Pakistanis are notorious with telling everyone around them what’s going on.

    I am quite sure Hillary’s campaign benefitted from the sale of America’s intelligence.

    THIS is the story that should be sweeping the air waves.


    Missing a couple of days this week because I had a stent put in my leg and all the hoo-hah involving that. Seems to have worked right well but still a bit sore.

    There are TWO big stories this week.

    One is Debbie Wasserman-Schulz(DWS) and her Pakistani family of her lover, a McDonald’s worker, owner of a money laundering car dealership and somebody’s mother.

    Folks, this is a spy ring, pure and simple. Somebody from some terror organization is paying big money for America’s intelligence and DWS, along with President Obama, could care leass about America. It’s how much money they can get to keep themselves in power.

    Second big story is Mueller’s grand jury empanelment, why?

    Again, they could care less about America, America means nothing to them. It’s money and keeping them in power.

    Finally I have figured out why congress of all parties are hiding and protection this gang of thieves, including NOT repealing Obama’s premier law……The Affordable Care Act.


    Not that there weren’t gazillions of honorable black people who could have risen to President but they had to be willing to do Hillary’s bidding, obey Valeria Jarrett and accept money from all over the world, never mind who gives it.

    Few meant that criteria except President Obama.

    The GOPe and obviously the Democrats do not want to sully America’s first president’s reputation as a scoundrel and traitor and creator of horrible laws. For a real shocker, I think Jeff Sessions and other good guys are part of the plan to not destroy Obama’s reputation.

    They are protecting Obama people.

    And prosecuting Trump is part of the plan. Americans will keep their eyes here while the sins over here are ignored.

    Let’s see how this DWS thing plays out on this week’s Sunday political talk shows.
