    It’s the quality of man that makes a difference, Though many are shattered souls from endless temptation. Constant bombardment of sensual propaganda, and to retain a translucent dignity when all seems lost. Its unnerving pressure to do what needs to be done, Though the task is simple, the will to succeed is daunting.

    After the slap down in his inaugural address against the elites and picking a fight with the intel community and the military industrial complex in State Dept, I'm not quite sure if Trump truly knows or perhaps he does know how entrenched those career people are. Different presidents come and go but these people are there seemly forever and do what they want to do and will go around a presidents viewpoint and disregard what the President wants. Reagan had problems with them in 1980s and I fear that they may do dastardly things against President Trump . I'm not...

But Holt and his wife Donda Holt nearly lost the chance to parent their son, Michael. New Brunswick's Department of Social Development initially informed the Holts, who took in Michael as their foster child when he was a baby, that they were too old and overweight and not involved enough in the community to adopt him. The rejection left them shocked, but they fought it and won.

    I was just watching Shepard Smith interviewing someone from the Wall Street Journal about the possibility that the Trump administration may expand the White House press area to include people from outside the mainstream "Press." They were essentially in agreement with the idea that "The Press" is a Constitutionally recognized "institution" charged with making sure that the President can be properly questioned on behalf of the public. They expressed concern that Trump might use the expansion of the press room to avoid answering "tough" questions by the "Professional Press," and instead only take softball questions from those renegade interlopers who...

He continued to argue that Trump was the right man for the job. Cringing called it. Well done, sir!

    I hesitate to speak negatively about half of the American population but I just can't help noticing the endless anger and lamentation of the modern American woman. I've lived with it through many decades. Feelings of persecution often drive the decisions and beliefs of the modern American woman. Men are almost exclusively believed to be the cause of this persecution when often it has another source or is sometimes even self inflicted. It's not that I'm saying men do no wrong. But men sometimes actually do things right and that is too often ignored with damaging consequences. It is my...

    Yesterday I sat through what could be very generously called a neighborhood meeting near where I live. A new Goodwill Boutique (higher end Goodwill) is set to open in center of town, and a spokesperson was going around promoting it to neighborhood associations. In educating us on what Goodwill does, the spokesperson volunteered that the money generated from sale of donated items drives their job training program. All good, until . . . He then volunteered that of the 5000 trained locally last year and placed in jobs, 1800 were Syrian refugees. Since I'm in the People's Soviet of Washington,...

    Nearly all of California's reservoirs are far above their historical average volumes for this date of the year. This is somewhat due to the La Nina, and it's a La Nina heading OUT of an El Nino, not into one, so a subsequent drought is unlikely. Reservoir levels are so high, that many are approaching their typical April peaks. And the snowcaps are already approaching their average post-winter depths. Shasta Lake, the largest reservoir, is at 81% capacity and 126% of average. Terminus reservoir is at 321% of normal. Statewide snowcaps are at 160% of normal for the date, and...

    In 1994, Al Cowlings led California police on a two-hour plus low-speed chase over 75 miles of Los Angeles freeways as OJ Simpson held a gun to his head in the back seat. Normally you would expect police chases to unfold at high speeds but this was different - it was a media spectacle complete with spectators on overpasses cheering it along. As with police chases, one would normally expect political coups to progress at rapid speed to have a chance of working. Instead, what we are seeing, like the white Bronco chase, is a slow, prolonged and determined effort...

    The Chicago Cubs will be the final pro sports team to celebrate a championship with President Obama at the White House before he leaves office. It turns out, the Cubs have reportedly decided to take Obama up on his offer to visit before Donald Trump is sworn in as our 45th president. They’ll visit Monday, four days before the inauguration. After the Cubs won the World Series in November, Obama — a White Sox fan from the Southside of Chicago — invited the Cubs to take part in the traditional presidential celebration earlier than normal. Usually, these visits happen during...

However, if we remember Jill Stein's recount, the Michigan results show that there was a second entity which "hacked" the election. The Detroit results, with more votes than voters in 70% of the precincts, show that someone clearly hacked the vote tallying equipment. And, that someone, the hacker, was -- the Democrat party.

    In recent years, somewhere between endless Tinder swipes and countless OkCupid matches, the dinner date has fallen by the wayside. As online dating surges in popularity, few millennials have the time, money, or desire to sit with a stranger over a long meal. Only 7 in 10,000 messages in a recent OkCupid IAC survey suggested “grabbing some dinner” and a somewhat less scientific survey this reporter conducted of several dozen actively dating 20-somethings found that dinner has become a highly taboo first date. Last month, Moody’s Investors Service slashed its operating-profit growth forecast for the restaurant sector. (This appears to...

In fact, it might be time to propose an official mutual defense treaty (outside of the UN or NATO) with these nations and others who wish to fight against Islamic terrorism.

    Obama is a sad figure, and history will regard him as a study in narcissistic hubris. Responsible for an acute aggravation of worldwide misery and suffering, in an age where global indicators of development and education are nevertheless positive, his calm and serious demeanor are but mere appearance in contrast with his lightweight and unserious reflection and behavior. His easy-going and superficial personality make him an affable dinner companion but reveal an insubstantiality manifest in his international policy. In the litany of his crimes without number, the abetting of the slaughter of a half million Syrians is only the latest,...
