  1. How and why Trump was elected.

    That's pretty good at explaining why Mr. Trump was elected. I'd just like to add to it to try to illustrate where we might be going from here. 1. Even though the '4 different exterminators' spend lots of money on advertising to try to convince you, the homeowner, to 'choose me, I'm much better than the others'; when all is said and done they're all pals and hang out together. They certainly don't want any outside interloper exterminators coming in. What's more, they all really work for the city - not you. 2. They come in, tinker around, and try to convince you that they've done their job. But truth be told, if they REALLY were successful in getting rid of the raccoons, then you wouldn't need them, would you? 3. They might try to convince you that raccoons are actually good for you - and you should want more. In fact, you should provide a more inviting environment for them. If you express a contrary opinion, they ridicule you - or accuse you of hating cute, cuddly little furry creatures. They don't care about the damage the raccoons may be doing to your home, since after all, they don't live there. They might not even live in the city. 4. They - the 4 and the city - pool all their resources and go after the interloper guy. They accuse him of colluding with the squirrels. They bring raccoon defendants before sympathetic judges, who rule it is illegal to evict the raccoons from the basement. Raccoons have rights! What the city and the four exterminators hope to do is just to wait out the situation - hope the interloper exterminator gets discouraged, tired, or that they can just run him out of town. And then we'll all return to "the good ol' days". Blessings, -Ed
  2. A couple of things here: 1. Even though Pres. Obama went on TV (with Chris Wallace, I believe) and adamantly declared that he never communicated directly with the FBI director about ongoing investigations, it is now clear he wasn't being truthful. Is anyone surprised? 2. RE: Agents Strozk and Page. I have a question/comment: Are these the BEST and the BRIGHTEST the FBI has to offer? Really? Not only carrying on an office 'affair', but doing so texting on gov't accounts and phones? Basic government employee rule no. one - learned on the first day: All emails and texts on government issued equipment and accounts are SUBJECT TO REVIEW and are the property of the US Gov't. Forget about their alleged biases or immaturity (high school level at best). What about their ability and judgement? That's what concerns me. Blessings, -Ed
  3. media hides photo obama with farrakhan

    Exactly right. Had the existence of this picture come out in 2008, it would have been relegated to Fox News - meaning the rest of the media would have been given carte blanche to ignore it. Remember - anything detrimental to statism or so-called 'progressiveism, when it appears only on Fox News, can be safely ignored by all other media. If it is brought up, it can be shot down with "where'd you hear that, Fox News??" The truth about Obama was there in 2008 - for anyone who cared enough to look for it. Blessings, -Ed

  5. White House doctor: Trump in 'excellent health'

    I've been thinking about these daily anti-Trump threads, and my Christian brothers and sisters who post on them and applaud them. The Apostle Paul's words in 1 Cor. 10:23 come to mind: “I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but not everything is constructive. Also the Commandment against '. . . bearing false witness'. Our country is plagued by citizens with many diverse voices - some of them have evil and divisive intent. As Christians, we are called to a higher purpose. It's fine to have differing POLITICAL opinions (Jesus' disciples ran the gamut from Matthew who served the hated Romans as a tax collector; to Simon the Zealot who wanted to overthrow Rome), I believe Christians are called to a higher purpose than contributing to the division. My advice would be before posting, ask yourself: "Is what I'm about to post going to heal; or is it going to divide?" Just my $0.02. Blessings, -Ed
  6. President Trump is America's SECOND most admired man

    I don't put much stock in these "most admired" surveys since they are in essence just popularity contests. The proof of that is that the lists change from year to year. A person doing truly admirable things is probably living their life that way. An exceptional person in that regard would be on the list for multiple years. In the unlikely event that I would ever get called for a survey like this, I would come up with a name of a missionary - particularly one ministering in a place where they were risking their life. And the ironic part of that would be such a missionary probably wouldn't want their name publicized. I think it's good to 'appreciate' what people do, but I cannot think of anyone in the news I really admire. Everyone is fallible and every0ne will disappoint us from time to time. Best to save our admiration for the One who truly deserves it. Blessings, -Ed
  7. WorthyNews:Congress sends historic tax bill to Trump

    I agree with you. Over the last couple of days however, since this has been in the news, I've wondered what God's plan is in all this? We've already seen good economic news and some might look at that as God's Blessings. But I have to ask a hard and difficult question - why would God be blessing us, now? What have we done as a nation to merit God's blessings? Our nation is still hugely divided. Good - even great economic news will inevitably be discounted or ignored if it is seen as coming from Trump policies or the republicans. It won't be covered on most of the media outlets. At least half the people won't hear about it. "Thou shall not covet" is the tenth Commandment - yet coveting (e.g. being resentful of what others have) is the basis and reason for being for at least one of the branches of the Uni-party that runs Washington, DC. It seems to be the desired motivating factor. I'm supposed to "hate" the rich because they got a bigger tax break than I did? Why? What sense does that make? I tend to think that God hasn't necessarily 'blessed' us, but He may have given us a reprieve. Now it's up to us to do something with it. Our nation needs revival - that is the only TRUE blessing. -Ed
  8. MG, I followed your link and this is the headline: Tom Brokaw Says Fox News Is 'On A Jihad' To Destroy FBI's Credibility So his 'beef' (in this case) isn't with Trump; it's with Fox News. Whatever one thinks of FNC, you have to admit it's become a convenient whipping boy of The Left. As a last resort, if the 'messenger' is solely "Fox News", then the messenger can be shot and there are no further consequences. I've always wondered who gets to determine which 'scandals' are a threat to the republic and our way of life - and which ones can be safely ignored. If the 'scandal' is carried on CNNCBSABCNBCMSNBCWASHPOSTNYTIMES, then it's one we should all worry about. The perpetrator is one to be feared and hated. It's been a while since I've read "1984", but in that novel there was something I believe called 'the two-minute hate.' That's what I see the mainstream media providing. Fox, however, seems to be different. When they cover a scandal that paints a statist like Obama in a bad light - say, Benghazi for instance - then it can be ignored by the rest of the media with no consequences. If it is ever inconveniently brought up in polite conversation, then it can be dismissed with a simple "Where did you hear that, on Fox News? What are you, stupid?" Brokaw longs for a time when he (and Uncle Walter and Danny boy Rather) had no opposing views on the nightly news. In the time of only 3 networks, one could tune into ABC and see the exact same stories covered in the exact same way as they would on NBC or CBS. And they, of course, usually followed the lead set by the NY Times earlier in the day. Life was so much more simple, then. EEEEEVIL Fox News. Blessings, -Ed

  10. Reuters: Climate change driving record snows in Alaskan mountains - study

    Ok, I think I finally get it: Climate getting warmer = global warming CLIMATE CHANGE Climate getting cooler = global warming CLIMATE CHANGE Less precipitation = global warming CLIMATE CHANGE More precipitation = global warming CLIMATE CHANGE More hurricanes = global warming CLIMATE CHANGE Less hurricanes = global warming CLIMATE CHANGE More wildfires in California = global warming CLIMATE CHANGE More ice at poles = global warming CLIMATE CHANGE Less ice at poles = global warming CLIMATE CHANGE Steven Colbert being not funny = global warming CLIMATE CHANGE (Okay, that last one may be a stretch . . . ) But here's the real deal: More money and funding; more government; less freedom; more gloabalism = global warming CLIMATE CHANGE That's all you have to know. Blessings, -Ed
  11. Climate change driving record snows in Alaskan mountains - study Reuters•December 19, 2017 BOSTON (Reuters) - Snowfalls atop an Alaskan mountain range have doubled since the start of the industrial age, evidence that climate change can trigger major increases in regional precipitation, according to research published in the journal Scientific Reports on Tuesday. The study by researchers from Dartmouth College, the University of Maine and the University of New Hampshire, shows modern snowfall levels in the Alaska Range at the highest in at least 1,200 years, averaging some 18 feet per year from around 8 feet per year from 1600-1840. Related SearchesMammoth Mountain Snow ConditionsClimate Change FactsWhat Is Climate ChangeGlobal Climate ChangeClimate Change Definition "We were shocked when we first saw how much snowfall has increased," said Erich Osterberg, an assistant professor of earth sciences at Dartmouth College and principal investigator for the research. "We had to check and double-check our results to make sure of the findings." The research was based on an analysis of two ice core samples collected at 13,000 feet from Mount Hunter in Alaska's Denali National Park. The study suggests that warming tropical oceans have driven the increased snowfall by strengthening the northward flow of warm, moist air. The research builds on a previous study using the same ice cores that showed an intensification of winter storm activity in Alaska and Northwestern Canada, driven by the same strengthening "Aleutian Low" system. "Everywhere we look in the North Pacific, we’re seeing this same fingerprint from warming tropical oceans," said Dominic Winski, a research assistant at Dartmouth and lead author of the report. "Wintertime climate in the North Pacific is very different than it was 200 years ago." Scientists have long concluded that carbon dioxide and other emissions from industry are driving planetary warming, leading to floods, droughts, and more frequent powerful storms. But researchers have only more recently begun detailing how climate change can boost regional precipitation patterns, in some cases with devastating consequences. A group of scientists led by non-profit scientific research group Climate Central published a report earlier this month saying climate change contributed significantly to rainfall from Hurricane Harvey, which flooded Houston in August and September and caused billions of dollars in damage. Every nation in the world except the United States has joined a global pact to fight climate change. President Donald Trump announced the U.S. withdrawal from the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement in June, saying it was too costly for the U.S. economy.

  13. College students' tyrannical behavior must be stopped

    So called 'progressives' took over the education establishment sometime during the early to mid 20th century. I've always said that is the real root of the problem. The open borders, globalist/socialist utopia that we are speeding to is just the result. The best thing we might have going for us is the natural 'rebelliousness' of youth. While most kids will not question the indoctrination they are being spoon-fed, the 'rebels' (those who are hard wired to reject their teachers' or parents' ideals) will. In the 60s and 70s, rebellious youth embraced communism. They are now 'in charge.' They will eventually pass, however, and the torch may be passed to a new 'conservative' generation. If we last that long. Blessings, -Ed

    According to the crew on "The Five", Pres. Trump has said exactly the same thing about Romney and Cruz as well. So we're they victims of Trump's harassment too? Blessings, -Ed
  15. Huffington Post goes hard hitting journalism on Trump

    Cool! This comes at a time when there are a lot of 'mainstream' journalists with excellent 'hate Trump' creds looking for work. Maybe Huffpo can hire Matt Lauer or Charlie Rose. Or they can lift Brian Ross away from ABC. Heck - maybe they can even get Dan Rather or Brian Williams. The possibilities are endless! Blessings, -Ed
