  • Trump calls campus deputy who hid from school gunman a 'coward'

    Fishtalk to robroys woman

    A big burly type of guy calls in to our local radio station and scolds us listeners: “You don’t know what you would do in the same situation so people should stop mocking this guy”.

    Go to hell.

    He’s a coward, a nothing-burger, a waste of money, he will go straight to hell on his last breath, he is a zero, he is a bigger problem with stopping killers than taking away the gun of me, a widow woman with a small gun for safety.

    And no, maybe I wouldn’t know how I’d react under the same circumstances but what’s the point?

    IF...just sayin’....IF I had huddled in a corner of the building while young children inside were being systematically murdered....I would be....

    .... a coward, a nothing-burger, a waste of money, I would go straight to hell on my last breath, I would be a zero, is a bigger problem with stopping killers than taking away the gun of me, a widow woman with a small gun for safety.....

    You do something like this, you will be mocked and degraded the rest of your life and this fakey love stuff is so very wrong.

    The Sunday political talk shows 2/18/18

    Below the FreeRepublic Sunday talk show thread link.

    The major talking points of the day

    The shootings in Fairland were covered extensively. Somebody recruited some kids who are going to set us straight on guns.

    FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Mark Kelly, Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence; Rush Limbaugh.

    RUSH LIMBAUGH! He did great and was wearing a terrific tie.

    Rush stands by his assertion that he would allow millions of illegals amnesty if the congress passed a rule that they can’t vote for 15-25 years.

    Chris Wallace was speechless.

    How many Democrats do you think would agree to this?

    And Mark Kelly still determined to take away our guns.

    Link to Fox News Sunday Below:

    MEET THE PRESS (NBC): Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla.

    He came out of nowhere. Bernie Sanders, coming from a state that adores its guns, wrestled with these issues with his constituents.

    MEET THE PRESS (NBC):Link to Meet the Press show below:

    FACE THE NATION (CBS): Sens. Tim Scott, R-S.C., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.; Reps. Ed Royce, R-Calif., Charlie Dent, R-Pa., and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla.

    Trey Gowdy becomes a wimp.

    Below the link to Face the Nation:

    THIS WEEK (ABC): Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla.; former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.
    Jeh Johnson, who still can’t spell his first name, explained how he and President Obama saved this country.

    Link to This Week below:

    STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.; Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio.

    John Kasich yelled and screamed and made a fool of himself.

    They are determined to take our guns....take our guns than Valerie Jarrett gets her Iranian friends to take over this country because NOBODY WILL HAVE GUNS!!!

    Then why are we constantly told “if you see something, say something?”

    I think there is something that can be done.

    Though part of your point is not lost on me. Still, these are trying times, these are awful crimes.

    Let’s say the FBI really did something about this Cruz shooter instead of trying to impeach Trump.

    They probably couldn’t arrest him but I’m thinking they could have told the kid he’s being watched, then notify the school and local cops to watch the guy.

    There has to be a way to handle this without violating the constitution or breaking the law.

    Else tell them to stop telling us to say something if we see something.

    Instead they should say “If you see something, don’t say anything. We can’t do a thing about it.”

    Thank you very much.

    Got an it this week’s “on a personal note”.

    Weird things going on in my life but allow me to expand on MY experience with the Russians.

    I wrote a book called “Clarion Call”. Wrote it online, in fact, in moments of boredom. Bray I think you were reading it just for backup.

    The basic premise is that all of a sudden all of the electricity goes out all across America.

    And it does not come back on.

    Eventually a sort of Amazon type company takes over the government, the citizens begin to meet on street corners.

    Well I think it’s a good story and, of course, America survives while the political elite go in hiding and can’t be found.

    Now as I was writing this thing-and posting it on my Blog-I noticed it was getting a lot of hits.

    Which is a good thing, make no mistake, but I checked out the stats.

    Over 800 people a day were reading this thing and there was even more amazing fact.

    Not that, understand,800 people is a whole bunch of people in terms of the entire planet but to have that many people reading a book online AS IT IS BEING WRITTEN....well that’s odd.

    While I was flattered I still checked it out.


    I guess that’s in Russia.

    I real quick took that thing down.

    All the Russians have to do, as I figure, is keep eyes online and follow the action.

    To add to this rather strange thing, I think I am being, for want of a better word, surveiled.

    “Every time I call you I get this strange sound of silence before your phone rings. This doesn’t happen to anyone else I call.”

    Above are the words of my mother-in-law, an 89 year old who wouldn’t make it up.

    Also, lots of people tell me that calling me is odd. One church friend called me and told me she kept getting someone else on the line even though she dialed it manually a couple of times.

    Motion detector lights suddenly go off and on. Yeah, I got loose cats walking around but the cats do not normally set off the lights.

    It’s like I “sense” I am being watched and observed but damn, I’m nobody important enough to waste resources like that.

    So laugh and poke fun at fact I’d prefer to be wrong and the object of ridicule because I don’t trust my government any more and the FBI....damn the school shooters.

    They got to surveil some old lady in Delaware.

    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.

    And do check out the commentary of Diogenesis. Smart and on the money,

    Tuesday Date-2/13/18

    The big story of the day is a real scream.

    Seems the Obamas had portraits done of themselves.


    Pic below.

     photo fb2.12.28obamaportraits_zpsg50fucwa.jpg

    These is no shading, depth, they are both awful. But both of the artists are people of color and that's all that matters.

    Michelle's left arm is so long it looks fake. And I don't know what Barack is doing with those awful hands but it looks creepy.

    I am to understand that the painter of Barack's portrait loves to paint black women holding the severed head of white women.

    Why can't President Barack Obama and Michelle be just normal Americans and now so full of hate and prejudice?

    Lord those pictures are awful.

    Wednesday Date-2/14/18

    It's Valentine's Day, a day of love.

    But you'll not find love in America between the two prevailing ideologies.

    An envelope was delivered to Donald Trump Jr's wife filled with white powder meant to appear as if anthrax.

    Below is what the letter said.

    “You’re an awful person and now you get what you deserve,” according to law enforcement sources Tuesday.


    Who would do such a thing and why?

    Also the infamous and very truthful Susan Rice sent a personal email to herself detailing some kind of meeting on 1.5.17 that asserted that President Obama wanted everything to be by the book.

    Why on earth would someone sit down and write themselves an email on their very last day on the job?

    Not that Susan Rice ever told the truth in her life. Recall her as the famous Benghazi liar. "It was all because of a cartoon mocking Mohammed," Rice said in a lie.

    Now this weird email she writes….they're not going to get away with this is my prediction.

    Yesterday there was a hearing on worldwide threats and it was boring. Will catch up and perhaps write a summary.

    Thursday Date-2/15/18

    Just a couple of things today.

    First, as I write there has been reported, and scenes are showing, of a school shooting in Broward County Florida.

    Reports as of now are that the guy is named Nicholas Cruz. From one to five dead being reported fight now. This is early into the investigation.


    I've been wanting to write about my experience with delivery of those prepared meals that come to your door with all the ingredients.

    I use Home Chef.

    I get the delivery once a week. Each prepared box delivered has two meals and each meal is two meals for me. That's four meals delivered weekly at about $50 a week.

    It IS possible to go to their web site and cancel the automatic delivery, change it to a more suitable meal, or just request one meal delivery.

    As I am to understand, and the only reason this little human interest story is here on a political page as I am to understand that there is a plan afoot to have these same types of meals delivered to food stamp recipients.


    I know people who get food stamps and sell them. And I suppose people could sell these meal kits. But it's sure not as likely.

    IT'S FOOD! What a concept! Have the food come to their door, packaged with the benefit of economies of scale, ingredients all provided and hey….IT'S FOOD!!!

    Friday Date-2/16/18

    Obviously this Nikolos Cruz guy was a bit troubled. Some might say he was mentally will.

    Allow me to explain how this mentally ill thing works. First, by HIPPA laws, the fact that someone is in a mental institution cannot be revealed to anyone.

    Right there is an issue.

    Second, and since I have entirely too much experience with mental illness, here's how it works.

    If a person gets admitted, against their will, to a mental institution, they can be denied the right to own a gun.

    However, if a person admits themselves to the mental institution (and I know people who love and adore mental institutions), they cannot lose their right to own a gun.

    Now this is here in Delaware; not sure about elsewhere.

    So if the good shrink says he or she is not going to allow a mental institution patient to leave on their own, this is considered forced admission and affects gun ownership rights in the future.

    BUTBUTBUTBUT…of course you got to know that once so experience on mental patients as myself, knows how to get around that.

    Just tell the good shrink that no problem, I willingly agree to stay here.

    Boom. It's not a forced admission and it is a technique that can be used each and every time.

    Now I suppose the law could change and those who enter a mental institution willingly could STILL be denied a gun permit but really, you think that would work?

    There are people who, due to life's events, get depressed, perhaps suicidal. They need to be watched and given time to mentally heal.

    And these people should be denied the right to own a gun?

    So how else is mental illness going to be determined? Based on the testimony of one lone psychiatrist? Perhaps those suspect of mental illness should be forced to go before a panel of mental illness professionals?

    Lookit, crazy people don't kill that many people. They are crazy.

    People who fall down under a tragic life events are not crazy but they are not as mentally well as they should be.

    Keep talking about taking guns away from the mentally ill and trust that every damn one of us will soon be declared mentally ill.

    And for sure the Trump team will all be deemed nuts and thrown in jail.

    Oh, and how about that marvelous FBI? Told about this guy, told about the Boston Marathon dolts…..the FBI, once respected and admired, now a KGB wannabe who will remove Presidents they don't like.

    Or else deem them nuts.

    Saturday Date-2/17/18

    So Mittens Romney is running for Senator from Utah?

    Heh. He's a loser. This I can tell you.

    So Rosenstein announces that 14 Russians were indicted for using Facebook.

    The details are hilarious and, frankly, I still think they may be a fake news joke.

    The Russians stole identities?

    The Russians formed groups of anti-Trump and pro-Trump protesters?

    America's Keystone KGBFBI is at it again!

    They messed up then they messed up on that shooter in Florida.

    If you see something, say something, they scream at us.

    Today we find out that people all over the country were saying something to the KGBFBI and they did what?


    Folks, let's throw that whole lot out before they sell out America as if obviously their intent to do.

    I very much give Levin the benefit of the doubt.

    You hated the Apprentice? Well I loved that show but it didn’t make me love Trump. I was a Cruz fan but once Trump looked like the guy I kept an open mind.

    Levin did not. He wanted to be cool, part of the in crowd. He wanted to make Rush Limbaugh look dumb as Levin is so jealous of Rush it drops from him.

    I think Mark very much brings something to the table but he blew it with the Trump thing.

    But he’s back in the saddle so I welcome him.

    Mark Levin had been a “never Trumper” and he disappointed me real bad with that stupid action.

    He’s done everything he can to turn it around while still justifying in various ways why he did what he did.

    Levin knows he almost threw it all way with his target audience with his silly anti-Trump schtick.

    Now he gently tries to act like he’s President Trump’s biggest fan but I, for one, am never gonna forget how Mark Levin wanted to be part of the in-crowd, he wanted to part of the gang that includes Bill Crystal.

    He’s a smart man but with very little confidence and the anti-Trump nonsense will forever make me dislike him.

    I want Mark Levin to know this.

    “If you see something, say something” they tell us.

    While people all over America been telling America’s KGB all about it and they did nothing?

    Today they indicted 14 Russians for using Facebook.

    They spent seven years looking for the anthrax killer, going after the wrong guy the whole time.

    They broke up Arther Andersen-who I used to work for, by the way.

    And not that I admire Martha Stewart in any way, but the Keystone KGB put her in jail for the reasons she gave for selling stock.

    She was probably lying but what happened to the concept of a trial and justice?

    If I’ve learned nothing these past few weeks it’s that America has a Keystone police force worth nothing.

    On Meet the Press some jerk remarks that the White House is now a place of evil, filled with people who beat their wives.

    Man they are desparate to make a new narrative. Now we’ve got a White House full of wife beaters.

    The one guy it happened 13 years ago.

    And how about Bill Clinton biting his victim’s lip as he raped her?
