Poor losers are just plain losers...

Now that the election is over, oil can go back to the 50-60 mark. Over the last 16 years, the price of oil falls significantly before an election cycle. I don't think this is a coincidence. OPEC doesn't seem to be in a hurry to cut back.

As I expected, Trump is starting to crawfish on several of his campaign promises. Most notably, prosecuting Hillary and Obamacare.  He is not a conservative.

Didn't the Wall Street tycoons say that the market would crash if Trump were elected?  Premarket analysts say the market is set to open at a record high today, hmmmm....

BTW, the US dollar has been soaring ever since he won the election. Time to look at gold again.

If you think that building a wall at the Mexican border will stop illegal crossing, you haven't seen how fast they can build crossings to go over them. 

Hillary is blaming the FBI director for her loss.  Karma is a bitch.  Throw enough people under the bus and it will come up and bite ya... 

How devastated do you think Bill Clinton would be if they threw Hillary in jail? Can you imagine living with her?

A new prepper community is being planned in Ector Texas, complete with bunker condos and zip lines. Can you imagine the conversations with neighbors?

I have decided to use spotlights on the house instead of stringing Christmas lights on the roof. I thought the $150 investment was worth the reprieve from the annual beating of putting up and taking down the decorations.

Disinformation and misinformation
appeal to the masses

Best political ad in Texas this year! 

 ~ The NY Times was going all out targeting Trump and how he avoided paying personal taxes. The irony of the media portraying him as a bad guy for legally using tax laws to reduce his taxes versus the criminal conduct of his heroic adversary to get her elected is inexcusable.

 ~ Since when did the Justice Dept consider a criminal investigation by the FBI interference with an election? If Trump was involved, progressives would be screaming for immediate action.

However, the NY Times never mentioned the fact that:
"The Justice Department official in charge of informing Congress about the newly reactivated Hillary Clinton email probe is a political appointee and former private-practice lawyer who kept Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta “out of jail,” lobbied for a tax cheat later pardoned by President Bill Clinton and led the effort to confirm Attorney General Loretta Lynch."
 ~ Do you believe Hillary really wants the new emails disclosed to the American public immediately? Good public move, unless they actually release them.

 ~ Why would anyone believe that the POTUS election is rigged, especially after CNN severed ties with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile after Wikileaks hacked her emails, showing she shared questions in advance to the Clinton campaign at CNN-sponsored events. Assange needs a Nobel Prize.

Truth allows justice, without it, there can be no justice…Why wouldn't the Clinton campaign refuse the information and condemn her actions? I think you know the answer.

 ~I’m sure the Justice Dept was surprised when Ammon and Ryan Bundy were acquitted on conspiracy charges in the occupation of the wildlife refuge in Oregon. Three questions come to mind…
1. Do Oregon liberals believe big brother is overreaching? All 12 jurors “rejected everything about the government’s case”.
2. Would this have gone to trial if it were a BLM occupation?
3. Why are the BLM rioters not charged with conspiracy

Yesterday's gone...

 ~ Saturday Night Live had a skit with Tom Hanks this weekend that will no doubt become a classic. He and the cast who were in Black Jeopardy we absolutely hilarious. Category: “Skinny women can do for you” for $200. Hanks reply, “Not a damn thing!” Priceless!

~ Squirrel #4 in the freezer for the second batch of squirrel dumplings next month.  I am amazed at how good it was. Recipes call for 3, 2 to go.

 ~ I listened to a game warden tell me about a place they call "the 130" down in McAllen, a 9 mile stretch they patrol where 200-2,000 come across the border illegally every day.  What do they do with the majority of them?  Give them a bus or plane ticket anywhere they want to go.  Does that sound like border security to you?  And this is just a 9 mile area.

It doesn't matter if they're from Iran or Pakistan, they're lightly vetted, given a court date and given transportation to wherever they have a verifiable contact and place to go.  Do you see a security issue here?

Texas has no law on the books that says it's illegal for a non-US citizen to cross the border without proper authorization; therefore, state law doesn't consider them illegal.  Our state government should be held accountable for this. 

  ~ So, the Clinton's gave $500k to her FBI email investigator's wife's campaign fund in Virginia. Of course, this could never be considered a conflict of interest, bribery, impropriety, coercion, breach of trust, extortion or racketeering...unless you're a conservative, then it's jail.

It looks like Colin Powell wants a seat on Hillary's cabinet or a good job since he endorsed her this week. He wouldn't have crossed the line for less than 20k or more a month...

I watched Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary, “Hillary’s America” last weekend. It was a historical look on how throughout our history, the Democratic Party supported slavery and how they continue to hold black people in bondage. These are stories that our history books omit, even though they're accurate.

Las Vegas odds on the Presidential election: Hillary win – bet $500 to win $100 ~~ Trump win - bet $100 to win $350. That’s some pretty heavy odds, and it also tells you who the money is on.

Here’s the crazy thing. Supposedly, the leading poll with the best track record in the last 3 elections, Investor’s Business Daily/TIPP tracking poll, has Trump leading by 2.4% as of last Saturday. If you go to Vegas before the election, put $200 on Trump for me, I’m good for it.

 ~ Megyn Kelly, my former dream woman, was put in her place by Newt Gingrich who called her out on her bias against Donald Trump on her own show.  Deservedly so, in my opinion.  Prepare to see her kicked to the curb, I have.  The Republican Party will never recover the Presidency unless they find a way to appease the conservative right.  RINOs don't get the job done.

 ~ Healthcare premiums going up over 20% next year, which means less coverage and higher deductibles.  And this is after $330 billion in tax money has subsidized the premiums.  We were promised many good things with the ACA, please tell me which of those promises were true?

Is this the biggest lie sold to Americans so far this century?  No, it wasn't sold to us, it was forced on us, and still is.

What does the President propose to solve the problem?  What they wanted in the first place, a way to control our healthcare - socialized medicine. His answer (and Hillary's): A government-backed insurer.  Obamacare was just "a starter home".  This was the original endgame.

What do you call it when your premiums double and your coverage is cut in half? Politicians call it leverage; leverage to socialize medicine.  Reap your whirlwind liberals, at least until you qualify for Medicare, but even that won't help for long since our healthcare system will turn into the same system our veterans' receive: slow and shitty.

 ~ Why would the President of the Phillipines want US troups (5 bases) out of their country?  We are alienating our allies, a prediction made 8 years ago about what this administration would accomplish.

  ~ From what I saw on the news last night, the long-haul truck driver may be replaced by artificial intelligence. A tractor-trailer rig drove 120 miles with no driver. Once they’ve got the bugs worked out of that system, they will probably have robots unloading those trucks. Things are sure gonna change!

 ~ On the bright side, at least the NY Times has declared rainbow sprinkles are in again.  They're just so photogenic.

 ~ I don't know which I look forward to most, spring or fall.  I do know I enjoy both seasons immensely.

 ~ I did a spell check on this post for all you grammar Nazis. I did ignore a couple of errors for redneck reasons...

Jimmy Crack Corn

 ~ Five new states may join Washington, Oregon, Colorado and Alaska by legalizing recreational use of marijuana in the November elections. California, Maine, Florida, Arizona and Massachusetts may become popular stoner destinations in the future. Pizza sales could double as well.

  ~ Mrs. Crane prepared squirrel dumplings for me last weekend and I must admit, they were delicious. Albeit, I find most pets to be delicious. She’s so good to me I just ordered her an iPhone 7. I’m also checking out my fire extinguishers around the house.

  ~ Tommyboy made an interesting comment Tuesday that if Americans every found out the election process was rigged, it could quite possibly cause civil war. After thinking that over, I believe that if the elections were rigged, hackers would publish the details eventually, unless they preferred to extort cash.

The problem with having that information and the perpetrators knowing about it is that you would be on the top of a hit list that would use every resource in their arsenal to find and eliminate their target.

 ~ A very successful Oklahoma farmer asked me if I knew the difference between a good farmer and a poor farmer, which I said I did not. His response: "About a week."

  ~ If anyone knows the best place to find good health coverage with a decent deductible that actually pays off, please let me know. 2017 looks to be a beating! $10-15k out of pocket seems to be the average affordable policy…

Not much to say these days,
that's a switch!

 ~ The Donald was on his game Sunday in the debate. He set her up to bring up issues he wanted addressed and reminded her of her and her husband’s actions. The most brilliant ploy was deflecting the audio recording of his womanizing by bringing in the women from the Clinton past. The media kept playing the recording ALL WEEK.

  ~ I formed a smile this morning after reading the headline, “Squirrel scam targets elderly churchgoers in Farmers Branch”. How original! It looks like a new and possibly profitable service industry could form if there is a large enough market.

BTW, I am actually having squirrel dumplings this weekend. Yes, I have redneck tendencies…

  ~ I received a comment recently on 10 predictions I made on November 5, 2008 about an Obama presidency. It stated that they were overly dramatic. Feel free to look and tell me how many of the 10 have not come to pass.

It will entirely depend on where you get your facts ( and whose numbers you choose to use as to the validity of my predictions. Remember that the true measurement of joblessness and energy crisis vary by reference.

 ~ It’s great to see The Blogging Deity of Wise County back on his best game. He claims to be the hardest working man in show business…and as of late, that may be true.

Are your enterained?

~ I have been watching Saturday Night Live for over 35 years and have been highly entertained. The October 1st episode was one of the funniest overall performances I have ever witnessed. I think I've watched it 3 times now. 

  ~ America’s (if not the world’s) most dangerous enemy is Iran, yet our government vilifies Russia and China, who don’t want to kill us but compete with us (especially selling weapons). This administration has supported, enabled and justified Iran’s nuclear ambitions and their active movement toward global jihad. Somebody prove to me I’m wrong and give references.

  ~ The woman LEO that shot the unarmed black man is using the defense that she suffered from “audio exclusion” (temporary deafness due to a high stress situation”). I don’t find that a reasonable justification for killing the man since she still had use of her other senses, including her vision.

  ~ Hackers are targeting our voter registration systems according to the Dept of Homeland Security. If elections aren’t rigged, they will eventually get hacked. There are trillions at stake from the POTUS election.

  ~ Trump’s Twitter account get’s million’s of dollars worth of media coverage. Sadly, both campaigns focus on the problems instead of the solutions.

  ~ As far as cutting taxes to stimulate the economy, Reagan did it in California as governor and in the USA as POTUS and both economies went on a boom of historic proportion. I watched it happen, so don’t let a politician change our history based on their misinformative statements.

  ~ The NY Times broke the law when they published Trump’s tax returns. If I were Trump and didn’t win the election, between the lawsuit and criminal charges I would file, I would own that publication. Free speech is no excuse of publishing portected, private informatio.

It seems they give Trump a hard time, but if you’re Bill or Hillary Clinton, you get a pass…

Law and order
lawless and disorderly?

 ~ I think Trump let Hillary off easy in the first debate. When she said that the biggest national security threat was terrorists getting nuclear weapons, I was waiting for him to ask her why then are they allowing Iran, a known terrorist state, to further their nuclear ambitions?

When she expressed her concern about cyber terrorism, I wondered why he didn't bring up her lack of cyber security on her personal server.

When talking about personal financial responsibility, why didn't he ask her how they lost/misplaced $5 billion in the Middle East? 

When she talked about creating jobs, why didn't he ask her how she could create more jobs and increase wages when companies keep leaving America. 

When she talked about her stamina and experience with speaking with hundreds of people and several countries about making treaties and deals, why didn't he ask her if they had to donate to her foundation to close the deals?

When she talked about protecting Americans, why didn't he ask her about the Americans she let die in Bengazi?

The list can go on and on...

  ~ The MSM and this administration does not differentiate protesters from rioters, which seemingly condones rioters and allows them justification by using the term “protesters”. This seems to be a clear sign that they are enabling, if not promoting the violence. I predict they will change the term “terrorist” to “protester” next.

Two things come to my deranged mind when contemplating this. 1. Violence is good for media ratings, which helps advertising income. 2. FEMA camps were probably created for this very reason. I don’t see any prison or jail big enough to hold the escalation of rioters in the coming years. Our government has been prepping with body bags, coffins, guns and ammo for the last several years.

  ~ The Post wrote an eye-opening opinion piece about job destruction in America caused by technology. Currently, your position may not be secure, but AI and robotics will be doing manual labor in place of our grandchildren.

Ka Ka Ka

  ~ The father of the New York bombing suspect told the police he was a terrorist 2 years ago, which prompted an FBI investigation. This should serve as proof that our government cannot or will not protect us.

I see no way to successfully combat this problem without using the proven tactic of “profiling”. Israel is most successful with this problem and that’s exactly how they do it. If our bureaucracy was interested in defeating this movement, they would re-implement the method, the same way they catch serial killers.

Claiming that profiling is unconstitutional is just a pretext for justification of non-action.  Politicians have more to gain from instilling fear and unrest in citizens than protecting and serving.  Americans just accept lip service instead of active service.

~ Grabbing for straws, Clinton is blaming Trump for inspiring acts of terrorism. These acts started escalating long before Trump took the political stage. As former Secretary of State, one might think she would admit some responsibility for not doing more to defend and defeat our common enemies instead of soliciting donations from them... 

  ~ An Army private serving a 35 year prison sentence goes on a hunger strike because he/she cannot get treatment for gender dysphoria. What does the Army do? They agree to provide the surgery suggested by his/her psychologist. I expect him/her to be very popular in prison.

  ~ GOP golden boy Coin Powell seems to have fallen from grace after hackers disclosed emails showing his two faces. He defended Hilary’s private server, saying he did the same thing, but now we see how vulnerable practicing that method. He’s also used some very sour words in his description of Trump.

Would you trust Powell now that the record shows he will praise you publically but condemn you behind your back? I think not. Thank you Russia for exposing this fraud. He’s just another two-faced bureaucrat.

  ~ I always believed Governor Christie was responsible for the Washington bridge closing to punish the local mayor. The guy is smart, but crooked, just like most successful politicians.
