Damned it you do, damned if you don’t.

Liberal politicians and MSM condemned Trump for not immediately condemning white supremacist groups for the violence in Charolettesville, NC. Then, those same liberal groups criticised Cruz and Rubio after they immediately condemned the white supremacists, saying their remarks were just for political posturing, proving that timing has nothing to do with liberal's criticism and condemnation of conservatives.

From what I witnessed in Charolettesville, the police did not do their job and separate the crowd once violence broke out. This leads me to believe that they wanted to let them fight, giving liberals another reason to blame the POTUS for civil unrest, continuing the divide and conquer agenda.

Instead of blaming the fringe white supremacists for their behavior, the responsibility has been aimed at the POTUS. Sadly, this has purposely deflated the great news that North Korean backed down from shooting missiles at Guam. Misdirection at its finest.

What the left fails to realize, is that the more they demonize the POTUS, the more his base will support and defend him. It’s not wise to declare war on conservatives since they are well able and ready to defend their beliefs, values and the Constitution. Hide and watch.

If someone participates in a protest that turns violent, expecting to stay safe by continuing to participate in it, is not rational. One should be prepared to get hurt or killed. The law of karma is in effect; you will reap what we sew.

If college campuses and cities can cancel White Lives Matter rallies, I sure hope they don’t allow Black Lives Matter rallies. The fallout would be astounding, among other things.

As NFL ratings fall, in a small part due to players protesting for not standing for the National Anthem, I predict these players contracts will not be renewed. As entertainers, an act of disrespect to the USA is not an appropriate means to protest. When they start costing their employers and the league money, they will take action, probably passive action.

Inconvenient past precepts…

We cannot continue to allow people to enter the United States undetected, undocumented, and unchecked, those who enter our country’s borders illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of law.” Democratic Party Platform 2008

When I see Mexican flags waved at pro-immigration demonstrations, I sometimes feel a flush of patriotic resentment. When I’m forced to use a translator to communicate with the guy fixing my car, I feel a certain frustration.” Barak Obama 2006

…immigration reduces the wages of domestic workers who compete with immigrants…the fiscal burden of low-wage immigrants is also pretty clear…We’ll need to reduce the inflow of low-skill immigrants.” Paul Krugman, Distiguished Professor of Economics and columnist for the NY Times, 2006

Maverick senator John McCain will be long remembered voting not to repeal the ACA.  Whatever respect I had for the man has been destroyed by this last willfull act of hypocrasy.  They didn't use his plan, so he didn't support theirs.

All I can figure is that the lady going on national tv, blaming her divorce on being a Trump supporter must be on a nationwide marketing campaign to find a new funding source (husband) who is pro Trump. This is one classless action…

So I’m watching an interview with the CEO of the company implanting microchips in employees for the sake of convenience when they ask him why he’s doing it. His response, “It’s the right thing to do”. For some reason, I’m not convinced…

Anthony Scaramucci looks to need a stint in a drug rehab program. If he doesn’t have a coke or amphetamine problem, he is severely bipolar.

Feminine what???

Sean Spicer saved face when he resigned over Anthony Scaramucci’s appointment as communications director. Unfortunately, nothing will ever save him from SNL’s Melissa McCarthy’s depiction of his press room behavior. She was so funny, he never stood a chance.

At least Spicer isn’t like spineless AG Jeff Sessions, whom Trump must have hired as a doormat. Invertabrates don’t make good leaders or employees.

I cannot wait for SNL to do a parady on Anthony Scaramucci! This guy, much like Spicer, is just begging to be made fun of.

It looks like the POTUS is throwing Republican congressmen under the bus for not getting Obamacare repealed and replaced.  He just needs to push the handle and flush them.  It wasn't too long ago those same congressmen were trying to flush him down the sewer.  Problem is...shit floats!

I read where tens of thousands of people who took our private loans for college may not have to repay them because lenders can’t come up with critical paperwork. That’s a potential $108 billion dollar mistake. Of course, paying their debt just because they owe it takes integrity, which is not a character trait of many of today’s students.

I read where F. Lee Bailey, infamous attorney, is broke, disbarred and working above a hair salon. Karma is a bitch… 

I heard a term on a commercial that made got my undivided attention…”feminine itch”. WTH is that about? It that what Sessions suffers from? Let the comedy begin!

What we have here
Is a failure
to communicate…

  ~ Depending on what network you watched, I noticed there were a lot of Trump supporters at the G20 in Germany. Normally, all we get to see are the protesters. Many on the left called his supporters “white supremacists”…

~ I felt my butt pucker up when I read a headline that asked what American oil companies could survive oil prices in the $30s? Not many…

  ~ I predict commercial airlines will reap what they have sewn by abusing customers. They will become the target of flyers wanting a payday. The media has been all over their mistakes and abuses, which means big $$$ to those who are victimized.

  ~ There have been 18 deaths of children in America this year due to being left in a vehicle and overheating. That is a painful death. Sadly, there seems to be more news coverage when it happens to pets.

  ~ It looks like the politicians will be settling on reforming or improving Obamacare since their new bill won’t pass. I have mixed emotions. Upside: the system is already in place. Downside: the coverage will probably still be expensive and the benefits will still suck.
  ~ After hearing several comments, I recorded and watched the entire series of “Billions”. That was one very entertaining flick. There is more than one moral to its story…

I then preceded to watch “The Putin Interviews” with Oliver Stone. I found it worthy of my time.  I still believe we more competitors with them than enemies...

I was disappointed in “The Keepers”. I lasted 3 episodes and found it got too slow. I told Mrs. Crane to watch it without me and give me updates, which are 2 an hour on average.

The great feeding frenzy

  ~ It seems the day of credible journalism in America is over. Retribution on the POTUS for calling their content biased and fake has gone full throttle. It has become an all-out pissing contest. Appealing to selected audiences using drama and hate to try to improve ratings or accomplish an agenda is the new norm. How very, very sad…

It seems that the only thing worse for far left liberals than a Trump presidency, is a successful Trump presidency. What patriotic American would not want our POTUS to succeed?

  ~ The left and many moderates are up in arms about the controversial NRA ad, saying it promotes violence against political protesters. I think it’s telling Americans it’s time to consider the option of protecting your property against political protesters turned terrorists. If the police won’t stop them, who will?

  ~ I watched the documentary “Newman” about inventor Joseph Newman the other night. The man may have been a genius who could have changed the world…except…no one would invest $100 million in his invention because he wanted to micro manage it. Sad ending…but told the whole story.

  ~ The saddest part of ISIS taking over cities in the Middle East: what’s left of people’s homes after all the fighting and bombing necessary to run them out. Families start over from the ground up…literally.

  ~ Who in their right mind would invest a billion dollars in an Iranian gas field? If you guessed French, you guessed right!

  ~ Here’s a good question. What happens if you’re on a cruise ship in international waters and you get raped by a crew member?

Summer heat dials up heated exchanges...

  ~ I will be glad when they develop smaller, more efficient batteries that can store electicity to run homes long term. The technology is finally advancing at a good pace. That will be the day I invest in them, as well as solar panels and wind turbines for personal use.

  ~ Speaking of technology, check out this new lightbulb that turns your desk into a touchscreen for you smartphone.  Ingenious!  Down side?  I have to clean up my desk…

  ~ I still haven’t bought a dashcam. I want one, but just not motivated to have more stuff to keep up with. 

  ~ There is a fairly heated thread on one of my posts that is making my head spin a bit. I like differing views, but sometimes it gets messy and too personal. The Deity is not popular in all circles.

  ~ No one is happy with the solution/healthcare bill proposed by Republicans, including their own party. They were not prepared for Trump to be president so they didn’t get ahead of the curve. They will take a well deserved beating over this misstep.

  ~ It seems the POTUS is taking an active roll in standing up to those countries who are testing our boundaries. Most notably, North Korea, Syria, Russia and several others. On the world stage of politics, posturing is everything.

  ~ Can you imagine this happening to you. Absolutely horrific…

Five Cliches Used to Attack Free Speech

1. ”There are limits to free speech.
2. “Hate speech is not free speech.”
3. “We must balance freedom of speech with other issues.”
4. ”The most stingent protection of free speech would not protect a man falsely shouting fire in a theater and causing a panic.” Oliver Wendall Holmes, Jr.
5. ”Maybe this speech is protected now…but the law is always changing.”

  ~ My opinion of not allowing cameras at White House press conferences is a good idea. The best way not to look stupid in the eyes of the world is to restrict photos and videos. Of course, there are many other forums that can create a similar perception.

 ~ Does anyone remember when liberal websites ridiculed Otto Warmbier for getting what he deserved after going to North Korea? A bad memory is quite convenient. 

 ~  Something I read in the NY Times that got my attention: 'The greatest threat to technology jobs is technology'...What a paradox.

 ~ Time to buy a few oil stocks while the price is down.  When the bombs start flying again in a month or two, I expect a 20 percent profit...

 ~ Mrs. Crane has finally convinced me to take a trip on the Heartland Flyer with grandchildren.  I am going over my survival gear, wish me luck...

Hate, it serves a select audience

 ~ There is only 1 thing worse than Obamacare, and that’s an unknown healthcare plan. People are used to the government screwing them, so the fear is quite understandable.

 ~ I almost fell out of my chair when I read the headline “”Putin Offers Asylum to James Comey”. This dog and pony show is getting out of hand…

 ~ When the bad guys are able to ‘dehumanize’ their enemy, it makes it much easier for their followers to justify killing them. Terminating someone’s life for one’s own beliefs is a terrorist action. Anyone who is party to instigating, enabling and/or participating in any part of this process is just as guilty as the killer.

Draining the political swamp in Washington should not include violence. But truthfully, who hasn’t considered the possibility?

 ~ Well, the Trumpster has nixed my future trip to Cuba…back on the bucket list. At least they are one less government we will be funding. We shouldn’t be enabling or supporting communist countries to begin with, unless we want Americans to learn to love their ideals.

 ~ What responsible parent would support, aid or enable their child to visit North Korea or any other communist country? That’s like taking a Sunday school class of 16 year olds on a tour of Planned Parenthood. Little good can come from the experience.

 ~ Classified information is being leaked from our intelligence agencies by kids with top secret clearance. Why, you ask, are kids being given clearance? Because they are multilingual. Supposedly there are thousands of high school students translating classified information. If they want to sing, let them do it behind bars…

There are only a few reasons I can think of as to why Itelligence Agency leakers aren’t thrown in jail: 1. They have more damaging info to hold the dogs at bay; 2. Agency officials aren’t smart enough to catch them or figure out who they are.

Personally, I believe anyone convicted of leaking classified information which endangers Americans or undermines our security should face a firing squad. That shit would stop ‘tout de suite.’

 ~ I could not be more disappointed in the fact that my all time love interest Megyn Kelly moved to NBC. A conservative Christian journalist working and promoting a brand who seemingly supports a socialist, Marxist regime in America saddens me. I, for one, have tuned her out…

 ~ Local lawyers are standing in line and foaming at the mouth for John Fostel’s judgeship. A steady government check coupled with less public accountability creates a virtual stampede to the feeding teat. I know who I would vote for, and he's over 65…
