Help a small bakery

This is a campaign to help the family owned bakery that's been badly affected by the undercutting of their business by a "progressive" college administrator, because one of the family had the temerity to chase a shoplifter who tried to smuggle out two bottles of wine. The thief and two friends assaulted the store clerk, were arrested, pleaded guilty, admitted their crime. But they were Black and the clerk was White, and the college executive claimed very publicly that this was racism in action by a well known racist firm. (Whose Black employees denied this vehemently!) Their business has suffered and they are in a lawsuit with the college. I think this is a cause worthy of some support and made a small donation. Take a look at the site, read the story, decide for yourself what you think about it and might wish to do. And please pass on to others. -Del

Social Security

Most of you who see this message already understand and are on SS now. But this is good to pass on to everyone younger. I like to think that anyone educated and intelligent knows that SS is only there as a supplement to the retired person's budget, and could never be considered as a major income for a full lifestyle. But maybe some young people don't really understand that, so they should see this. Pass on as you see fit. --Del

CNN’s Botched WikiLeaks Report.

CNN’s Botched WikiLeaks Report. Jim Geraghty, Morning Jolt
Excerpt: Just how did two of CNN’s Manu Raju’s sources separately make the exact same mistake when describing a September 2016 e-mail from WikiLeaks to the Trump campaign? CNN Public Relations says “the network does not believe that the sources intended to deceive the reporters.” Have they checked? How certain are they? How upset are all of the reporters and editors who worked on this story?


Bruce G. Ohr, a senior Justice Department official demoted last week for concealing his meetings with the men behind the anti-Trump “dossier,” had even closer ties to Fusion GPS, the firm responsible for the incendiary document, than has been disclosed, Fox News has confirmed: The official’s wife worked for Fusion GPS during the 2016 election.

Peace Process?

The Arabs are upset that the US recognized Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel, a country and culture they have vowed to obliterate and a people they have pledged to exterminate. Because, you know, it will interfere with the "peace process." Their idea of a peace process being they get to carry out these pledges.

Faked Racism

Sailor staged racist vandalism, Navy says
Excerpt: A sailor who claimed someone scrawled racial slurs on his bed aboard an aircraft carrier —sparking a viral Facebook post in the process — staged the incident himself, the Navy said Friday. Marquie Little, a 27-year-old African American seaman, posted photos to Facebook on Nov. 15 under an alias that showed his rack on the carrier George H.W. Bush covered in trash and racial slurs. (We've had colleges do this a few times in the last couple of years, some civilians, now people in the military or military school..... it's like some kind of mental sickness that is hard to understand. Maybe so deep into the Victimization Syndrome that they are compelled to reinforce it? Beyond stupid. --Del)

Scared of the Flag

Sarah Silverman 'Felt Very Weird,' 'Scared,' 'Shaken' By Seeing American Flag Flown in Yard
Excerpt: We’re only one episode away from finishing the first season I Love You, America With Sarah Silverman, and the end can’t get here fast enough for me. Until then, we still must suffer through yet another idea Sarah Silverman deems meaningful or just politically advantageous. This week’s concept involves the frightening white nationalism of…flying the American flag. The December 7 episode revolves around the theme of nationalism and mostly about how creepy people who love America can be. Silverman literally opens her monologue recalling a time when she "felt very weird" and "scared" when her then-boyfriend was raising an American flag outside his house. If that’s a concern she has, it’s no wonder she works in the safe space of the entertainment industry. She can’t possibly survive in the real world. Silverman: I had a boyfriend many years ago, he was my first boyfriend who had his own house, and one day I went outside to see what he was doing, and he was hoisting an American flag up the flagpole in his front yard. And I instantly felt very weird. It didn’t make sense, but I felt this feeling of like, um, I felt scared – yeah, I felt scared. So I was like, ‘Uh, what are you doing?’ and he said, ‘Raising the flag,’ and I was like, ‘Why?’ and he’s like, ‘Um, because I love America?’ and I was like, ‘Right, right, of course.’ But inside I was shaken. (Why do I worry about the future? Here's one example....Del. What future? She wouldn't like my house. 4x6 US flag over the Marine Corps flag, 24/7. Lighted at night. ~Bob)

Christmas Poems

A Veteran’s Christmas Wish

Each year when Christmas comes around again,
I pause on Christmas Eve to take a dram
Of whisky, and I think of absent friends,
And Christmas in a place called Vietnam.

I think of boys who never had the chance
To see their kids on Christmas Eve at play,
Their lives were spent that freedom might advance,
From Valley Forge right up through yesterday.

They fell at Belleau Wood and Normandy,
At Gettysburg, at Iwo and at Hue,
They gave their lives to keep our people free,
And never saw another Christmas Day.

So take a moment from your festive joys,
To think of soldiers who were young and true,
And say a prayer on Christmas Eve for boys
Who gave up all their Christmases for you.

Spell check notes: Scotch whisky has no “e.”
Hue (Vietnam) is pronounced “way.”

The Christmas Gift

There is a gift that comes
From those out on the lines,
It is not wrapped in bows,
But, oh, how bright it shines.

There is a Christmas gift,
A pearl beyond all price,
From those who ask for naught,
But make the sacrifice.

They risk their blood and bone
On endless weary tours,
For that is all that keeps
The evil from our shores.

You worship as you will,
You freely have your say,
And all that is a gift
From sentries far away.

There is a gift that comes
From troops who guard the line,
That lets us live in peace
And joy at Christmastime.

We say “Support the troops,”
But hardly pause to think
What honor really means,
Or how near looms the brink.

There is a Christmas gift
From those who hold the line,
And you and I, my friend,
Get nothing more sublime.

Islamophobic Imam?

Muslim cleric: “Offensive Jihad means attacking infidels in order to conquer their countries and bring them into the fold of Islam”
Excerpt: In this extraordinary video, Sheikh Saalim Bin Sa’d At-Taweel delineates exactly the same Islamic understanding of jihad and slavery that I have explained many times. Will Leftist and Muslim organizations in the U.S. denounce Sheikh Saalim Bin Sa’d At-Taweel as an ignorant, racist “Islamophobe”? Don’t hold your breath. --Robert Spencer

Hate Group?

Balanced History

I've been reading selections from "The Landmark Thucydides: A Comprehensive Guide to the Peloponnesian War." Though he was an Athenian, and wrote his history during the war, it is striking how balanced his history is though it was written almost 1500 years ago. Ken Burn's "Vietnam" isn't in the same ballpark for fairness.
