  • 14 Months and Counting, I'm Still Right About Trump

    GLDNGUN to GeronL

    You really need to get out more. I was talking to a couple of fairly liberal people the other day and they were saying that the Democrats would win the election because we would nominate Cruz and they would nominate Hillary and that she would get all the typical minority and special interest groups to vote for her to put her over the top. I said what if Trump were the nominee? Would he not turn people out who don’t usually vote at all? Wouldn’t he get some Democrats to vote for him - people who would otherwise not even consider voting GOP? All of a sudden their entire demeanor changed. They went from boasting the the GOP had no chance to win...to likely winning IF Trump were the nominee. I would like to think any of our candidates could beat any Democrat in November...but I also think that only Trump could win in a landslide and honestly say he has a mandate.

    I agree that Romo should not have called Cam a boy. It was an insult to boys everywhere. It suggests that Cam acted like a boy instead of a man. There are many boys who have been raised to act better than Cam does in victory and defeat. Romo should have apologized to all boys everywhere.

    7 point swing? Really? Even if the Panthers get the call, the exact same thing happens on the next play for all you know. All kinds of questionable calls and non-calls happen in every game. The Broncos manhandled Cam last time they played, they did it again this time and they would do it again tomorrow. END of story.

    You lost me at Rubio and welcome to California? Huh? As for the play in question I did think it was a catch. So? Again, we could go through the game and find calls that went the Panthers way. And you want a player tossed out of a game for the first time ever for a facemask? So now you want refs to just make up rules as the game goes along to your liking? Lol Not even baby Cam is blaming the refs. GAWD you ARE more of a sore loser than he is.

    Seriously? Are you trying to take some heat off Cam by acting like even more of a baby than he is? That was 1 play. Let’s assume for the sake of argument that it should have been complete, I’m sure we could find several calls or non-calls that went in Carolina’s favor. Evidently your argument is that all it takes is for 1 play to not go their way early in a game and they don’t have the fight or determination to overcome it. Such immaturity can only come from lack of leadership. Hey, wait a minute...I think you’ve stumbled upon their problem! Lol

    Nothing wrong with having fun. Do it in a classy respectful way though. I think Manning and Brady have fun when they win. I think Donovan McNabb and Doug Williams had fun when they played and won. Then again they were much more mature than Cam. I get it. You are a Panther fan and Cam is your QB. Hopefully he will mature. I would bet money that he won’t but hope I’m wrong.

    What a joke. The "establishment" hates Trump. Just look at the manifesto from TNR. That wasn't directed to Cruz. Look at the GOP response to Obama's State of the Union Speech. It was a GOP-E attack on Trump, approved by GOP leadership.

    The only they might be a little more receptive to Trump now is that they see his nomination as getting to the point of being inevitable. They would be "warming" to Cruz or anyone else that was had such a commanding presence. It's the old "if you can't beat him, join him" philosophy. Same exact thing happened with Reagan.

    I love Ted Cruz, but I'm not so blind as to not see the obvious. The GOP Establishment has been out to destroy for months. And now you want us to believe they suddenly like I'm. Give me a break.

  • Missing AirAsia flight QZ8501 and MH370 share similarities according to aviation experts

    12/28/2014 8:55:02 AM PST · 28 of 28
    GLDNGUN to BlackVeil
    The similarity I see is that both flights originated in Muslim majority nations. In fact, Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim-majority nation, at over 85%; Malaysia's state religion is Islam with over 60% of the population Muslim.

    I still say the most likely scenario that explains everything that happened with flight MH370 is that the Chinese took action after learning that Muslim extremists had got a WMD on the plane headed for Beijing. Whether Muslim terrorists have anything to do with AirAsia flight QZ8501's disappearance remains to be seen, but what Indonesia and Malaysia have in common is Muslim majority populations including extremist elements that have committed acts of terrorism in the past.

  • Flight 370 Theory: An Act of Anti-Terrorism

    03/21/2014 1:51:03 PM PDT · 1 of 55
    GLDNGUN
    The usual generic suspects have been mentioned as possibly being responsible for the plane’s disappearance: terrorists, hijackers, and suicide pilots. Considering the sophistication of the planning and execution of this operation it’s hard to imagine any terrorist organization, band of hijackers or suicidal pilot would be capable of pulling it off. And to what end? What “terror” has been wrought by the plane’s disappearance other than to those on the plane? Where are the hijackers’ ransom demands? Where is the crazy pilot’s suicide note or any other type of communication or clue about ending his life and that of hundreds of passengers in his care?

    No, none of those would be capable of this plan. It was done by a highly sophisticated group with vast training, coordination and resources at its disposal. Still it would be impossible for such a group to exist, plan and execute its operations without the knowledge of the top spy agencies in the world…

    …unless, of course if the organization responsible for the actions on Flight 370 was one of the top spy agencies in the world.

    That brings us to the question of WHO are the top spy agencies in the world, and WHY would any of them want this plane to be taken off its course, all communications shut down, and to disappear without a trace?

    In no particular order, here are the countries considered to have the most powerful, sophisticated spy agencies in the world:

    US, Israel, UK, Russia, Germany, France, Australia, India, Pakistan, China.

    These countries’ spy agencies are probably the only organizations capable of planning and executing such a flawless, precise, and perfect operation without detection or discovery. Now, the questions comes down to WHICH one and WHY?

    Set that aside for a moment and consider how super powers, say the US for example, might protect itself from a specific type of terrorist threat – namely a suitcase nuclear devise or other WMD being flown into a major populated, strategic city and detonated, on an international flight from a country where terrorists, say Muslim extremists, are known to exist? In other words, what measures does the US take to keep a WMD from being flown in on a direct, commercial flight from a hostile country like Egypt, Saudi Arabia, etc., to New York or Washington DC to be detonated upon arrival?

    Of course, the first line of defense would be to keep such a WMD from making it on the plane in the first place, but that can’t be the last line of defense. Security, baggage handlers, etc. in such countries can’t be blindly trusted. They could be terrorist or sympathizers themselves, and facilitate the placing of a WMD on a flight bound for the US.

    No, it would be naïve to assume that countries like the US don’t have a plan in place in a case where it’s learned that a plane already off the ground has a WMD on board for the purpose of inflicting major damage at the plane’s destination.

    Would they just shoot the plane down and kill a few hundred people in order to save a few million? Quite possibly, as a last resort, but that scenario has major problems, as well. The WMD might still be detonated by any terrorist(s) on board, albeit not over its intended target, but even if the WMD was never used, the other terror target would be hit with pinpoint accuracy – the econom target. Imagine the repercussions and ripples if the US shot down a commercial plane from say, Egypt, that had a suitcase nuke on it, minutes before it got to its intended target - Washington DC. Panic would still ensue because if 1WMD made it on board, how many others could there be out there? International travel would instantly come to a halt. The world’s economies would crash.

    So, if you are a world superpower, what do you do to prevent from having to publicly shoot down a plane with a WMD that’s already in the air, and still keep it from making it to its intended target?

    You have agents, disguised as normal citizens, on the plane with the authority and means to execute various plans to cover a variety of emergency situations, including learning of a WMD onboard.

    The US has armed federal marshals on domestic flights, so it would be reasonable to assume they have equivalent international agents on international flights, especially from certain, suspect countries. In fact, it would irresponsible for the US to not have such agents on such flights.

    In a scenario where US secret agents on an international flight are alerted that the plane they are on headed for Washington DC has a suitcase nuke “somewhere” on the plane, terrorist(s) with a trigger may or may not be on the plane, or it might be a bomb that can be remotely detonated, say by cell phone, what would the pre-planned operation be that the agents would execute?

    First priority would be to divert the plane off its original programmed flight path and away from any other highly populated, strategic locations. Secondly, prevent the device from being detonated at all. Last, but not least, keep the entire episode from becoming known to the public.

    If you combine this scenario with the aforementioned list of the world’s most powerful spy agencies, you will arrive at the most plausible theory that explains various aspects of this very mysterious Flight 370 situation.

    Flight 370 was bound for Beijing - the capital of China with a population of over 21 million. It was coming from Malaysia, where Islam is the dominant religion. Malaysia has produced numerous terrorists such as Azahari Husin, Noordin Mohammed and Zulkifli Abdhir – all Islamic extremists responsible for multiple incidents. They are/were bomb-making experts and trained many in the “art”.

    China has its own “war on terror”. Muslim Uighur separatists have been seeking to leave China and form a Uighur majority country since just after the Soviet Union fell in 1991. Muslim Uighurs attended extremist camps all over Afghanistan pre-2001 and there used to be several at Guantanamo Bay. They consider China to be an occupying and oppressive occupier. They have carried out terror incidents in China, and China has responded with strikes and raids. If there is any group that has a motive for attacking China it is one within the Muslim Extremist Uighur Easter Turkestan Independence Movement. In fact, one of Chinese Muslim extremist groups within that movement DID claim “credit” when the plane went missing. They are the only ones who have.

    Maybe the group didn’t know all the details, but were they already aware that the plane was going to be used in some way as a weapon against China?

    Somewhere in the mixture of Malaysian Muslim extremist bomb-making experts, Iranians (who are rapidly developing their nuclear abilities) traveling on stolen passports, and the Muslim extremist Chinese separatists, maybe they got a suitcase nuke or other WMD on the plane designed to destroy Beijing, its citizens and the Chinese economy.

    If you are the Chinese, are you going to leave the security of 20+ million of your people and the future of your country up Malaysian airport security screeners and baggage handlers? Of course not. You are going to have highly trained Chinese agents on the plane, ready to execute a pre-planned strategy based on the threat. The Ministry of State Security (MSS) is one of the most powerful and most active Chinese intelligence agencies. Its most successful spies are agents stationed throughout the world posing as ordinary citizens.

    Evidently 20 employees of Freescale Semiconductor, which develops components for hi-tech weapons systems and aircraft navigation among other things, were on board Flight 370. This Texas-based technology firm has several manufacturing sites in Kuala Lumpur and China; 12 of the employees were from Malaysia and eight were from China.

    The passengers on board were engineers and other experts, said Mitch Haws, Freescale vice- president, global communications and investor relations.

    "These were people with a lot of experience and technical background and they were very important people," Haws said.

    Again, to think that some of these highly skilled Chinese workers or other Chinese on the plane were not spies/agents would be naïve.

    Perhaps sometime after take-off of Flight 370, the Chinese secret agents on board receive word from Beijing that there is a suitcase nuke (or other WMD) on the plane, and to execute the pre-planned operation for such an event. Either through cooperation with the pilot/co-pilot or coercion, the highly skilled Chinese agents calmly and quietly enter the cockpit and take control of the situation. The passengers are unaware of anything unusual going on.

    The Chinese agents re-program the plane’s flight computer to take the plane off its original destination, and put it on another pre-planned course.

    This accomplishes priority #1 of taking the plane off the flight plan to Beijing.

    They have the co-Pilot maintain the appearance of “normal” by telling ground control “all right, good night” and give no indication to the passengers that anything is wrong, other than maybe announce a slight alter of the flight plan to “avoid turbulence”. This is to avoid tipping off any terrorist(s) on board that their plan has been discovered and prevent a mid-air detonation of the bomb.

    Without knowing who the terrorist(s) on board are (if there are any on board) and/or where the WMD is, how do you disable the terrorists and/or their ability to detonate the WMD? Any announcement of a bomb, or questioning of passengers, or a search of the plane is going to obviously alert any terrorist(s) on board that they plot has been discovered.

    Taking the plane to a very high altitude accomplishes several objectives. Everyone without an oxygen mask goes unconscious and eventually dies. The agents, and possibly the pilots were the only ones with access to oxygen masks to maintain consciousness. That altitude also makes it impossible for a cell phone signal to be established were someone to try to detonate the bomb with a phone call. Once every passenger, meaning every potential terrorist, on board is dead, the plane can drop to the lowest possible altitude and continue on its new flight path to its ultimate destination to avoid radar detection. This is to keep any terror groups from knowing where the plane is, as they might try to have a “chase” plane catch the jetliner and remotely explode the bomb. This also keeps anyone else from knowing where the plane ultimately went and what ultimately happened to the plane.

    This is also why they disabled all transponders and communications - so the plane couldn’t be tracked or communicated with.

    So where did the plane go to? The Chinese would want it be somewhere hidden, where they alone have access to it to defuse any threats, and to destroy any evidence that there was ever any threats to avoid the panic and collapse the would result if it became public knowledge a suitcase nuke was nearly detonated over Beijing. One possible destination would be China's Taklamakan Desert. The region - described by Encyclopaedia Britannica as a "great desert of Central Asia and one of the largest sandy deserts in the world" - has no shortage of space far from prying eyes. The BBC's Jonah Fisher tweeted on 15 March: "Being briefed by Malaysia officials they believe most likely location for MH370 is on land somewhere near Chinese/Kyrgyz border." This theory rests on an extraordinary run through the radar systems of several countries, but that is exactly what the new pre-determined flight plan programmed into the computer would have been designed and capable of doing.

    Huang Huikang, the Chinese Ambassador to Malaysia, said that search and rescue operations in the Chinese territories of the northern corridor had begun, Xinhua news agency reported. Mr Huang also confirmed that background checks on Chinese nationals did not uncover any evidence suggesting they were involved in hijacking or an act of terrorism against the plane. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei also told a briefing that China had deployed 20 satellites to search for the missing jetliner in Chinese territory which covers a northern corridor through which the aircraft could have flown. In other words, China is telling the world not to bother looking any deeper into the Chinese citizens on the plane and not to bother looking in China itself because they have all of that covered. How convenient.

    Other than that, it is striking how quiet the government of China is being on this incident. The vast majority of the passengers on the plane were Chinese on a flight headed for China, yet the Chinese seem to be letting others take the lead in the investigation and not making demands or complaints about the “investigation”.

    To complete their operation, there’s really only 1 more thing China needs to do to end the speculation of where they plane is. They need to plant some scraps of the plane far away from China, perhaps adrift in the Indian Ocean, somewhere extremely difficult to access where the water is very deep and nearly unsearchable, so it can be presumed the plane and passengers are at the bottom of the ocean, never to be found – precisely where the search is now being focused. It won’t be surprising when all of the deep water searches come up empty as the rest of the plane and the remains of the passengers were quietly and quickly destroyed at a remote location in China shortly after their disappearance.

    After Australia’s announcement of the search in the aforementioned area, China's icebreaker for Antarctic research, Xuelong, or Snow Dragon, is on its way from Perth to search the area. Up to five more Chinese ships, with three ship-borne helicopters, were steaming towards the search zone from across the Indian Ocean. Australian authorities said they had not asked for the ships to search the area. Perhaps China just wants to make sure, “something” is found.

    In the end, cheaters do prosper.

    Do you mean the way Peyton Manning "cheats" by changing plays at the line of scrimmage after "stealing" the defensive team's strategy for that play?

    Let me see if I got this straight. Huckabee is supporting this guy as a "true conservative" in the race, implying that the other guy isn't a "true conservative".

    Isn't this the same Huckabee who a few days ago was preaching to us about deciding who the "true conservatives/republicans" are and aren't?: "And one term that I’d like to see outlawed from the vernacular of the party is RINO. It stands for ‘Republicans in name only’ and it’s a pejorative term that questions the authenticity and orthodoxy of someone’s party purity. I’ve been called that myself, even though I fought in the trenches of Republican politics for over two decades. Even so, I would never pretend that I’m lord over determining who the real Republicans are," Mr. Huckabee concluded.

    So, which is it, Mike?
  • Christie on Bridgegate: I knew nothing.

    I am not buying his croc tears for a second, and can't believe so many in the media are.

    Would his aides have done something so drastic without his knowledge and approval? At the very least, they must have thought that it was the sort of thing that Chrispy Crème would want done but perhaps be kept out of the loop for "plausible deniability".

    On the other hand, let's give Christie the full benefit of the doubt for a moment, and say he had no foreknowledge or involvement in the bridge lane closures. Would he not have been outraged as a governor to see what was going on? Would not this be just the type of an issue that a "no nonsense" governor would get to the bottom of? Isn't that what a "champion of the people" would do? Instead, evidently, Christie had no concern or interest when this was happening. So even if he had no knowledge or involvement, he showed a complete lack of concern for the citizens on New Jersey. He was AWOL. Period.

    Then the investigations began. Even if was initially asleep at the wheel, wouldn't he "get to the bottom" of it? Since when is tough guy Christie afraid to rock the boat a little? Despite all of the investigations going on, he doesn't get the truth out of his aides?

    So if you believe that Christie had no knowledge about what his aides did, then you have to believe that he is an extremely poor judge of character, and unwittingly hired thugs to run to campaign/administration. You have to believe that he watched the massive bridge problem and no interest or desire in finding out what was going on and fix it. He's the GOVERNOR for crying out loud! You have to believe that when the investigations started, he either still didn't care anything about the issue or if he did was unable to get the truth out of his top aides.

    So, if you are Chris Christie and you found out that your top aides caused the problems ON PURPOSE, wouldn't you be outraged? Where's THAT guy now? Wouldn't you be looking to punish these people to the full extent of the law? Wouldn't you be furious that these aides betrayed you? Not if you are Chris Christie. No, you are "sad". Pathetic.

    No, I'm not buying his schtick for a second. If he were truly caught off guard by all of this, and if he really didn't approve of what his aides did, we'd see the "in your face" Chris Christie. The "I'm mad as hell about what happened and those who betrayed the public trust will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law".

    What a blowhard this guy has been all along.
  • Judge Cites Same-Sex Marriage in Declaring Polygamy Ban Unconstitutional

    I have been waiting for this inevitable moment for a long time and have seen it coming for a long time. Pandora's Box is about to open for the LDS Church when polygamy is no longer a crime.

    Going back to when the LDS Church quit practicing polygamy, there was NOT a revelation given forbidding the practice, only a "vision" the current "prophet" had of what would happen to the Church is they didn't stop the practice.

    It was kind of a weasily way out of it because the "revelation" had been given to practice polygamy and previous prophets like Brigham Young said it was the only form of marriage practiced in heaven and the Church would NEVER abandon it on earth.

    But then they saw the writing on the wall. Stop the practice or the federal government would pretty much dissolve the Church. The Mormons desperately wanted to be left alone and become a state so they agreed to stop the practice and had to put it into their state constitution that they would "never" re-instate it unless the federal government changed the law. This was put in there to placate the feds.

    So, now, here we are. It's only a matter of time before polygamy is legal everywhere. The LDS church stopped the practice, not because they thought it was wrong or had a "revelation" that it was bad and to stop it, but merely to survive and obey the law. With survival and the law no longer a hindrance, on what basis will they tell their members that they can't practice polygamy?

    The LDS Church wants to be thought of a mainstream Christian organization, but if they allow/support plural marriages by their members, that would obviously put them far out of the mainstream. But if they continue to forbid polygamy by their members, they will be exposed.

    Many members will think "Ok, we firmly believed in God's command to have plural wives, but had to stop the practice or be irradicated. We stopped it to survive, but now that the government says it's ok, why wouldn't we continue with this practice that God had commanded?"

    Leaves them in quite the pickle.

    It just dawned on me. The rollout of Obamacare could not have been more of a disaster if they tried. Literally. It’s becoming more and more obvious that while Obama wanted the ACA rammed through so there would be “something” on the books, it was never meant to be successful. This is merely a stepping stone to a “single payer” option. They WANT “Obamacare” to be fraught with problems so they can offer and ram through the “fix” - SINGLE PAYER.

    If Obama can get away with this, what's to stop him (and future presidents) from picking apart every new bill that's passed and becomes law. For example, let's say the GOP gains a veto-proof majority in both Houses of Congress next year in the elections and immediately pass and over-ride Obama's veto of a massive tax CUT that's supposed to be implemented February 1, 2015. What's to keep Obama from "delaying" the tax cut for 1, 10, 100 years by directing the IRS to do just that?

    "Give him a break! He’s a graduate of BERKELEY. That means that he has a head on his shoulders. Who is against mining in the USA if it saves raping, muderiing, and pillaging Congolesse natives? I think this is a good cause."

    You are mixing up 2 separate issues. Rodgers is against using minerals from the Congo, but NOWHERE in the story does it say he's for mining those materials in the USA. His cause is to stop the mining in the Congo. The people in favor of mining in the US say that's the solution to the problem, but Rodgers organization aint on that train.
