Have you noticed this, too?...
At Townhall.com, Derek Hunter shares his thoughts, and more:
"Being a victim is now a coveted status on the political left, so liberals aspire to it by creating asinine things such as “microaggressions.” A microaggression, for the sane among you who haven’t heard of this form of self-martyrdom, is an affront (racist, sexist, homophobic, pick your liberal trope) so small neither the person committing it, nor the person on the receiving end of it, can notice it."
Why Obama Really Spied on Trump
It is quite clear that the spying DID happen...
On the FrontpageMag website, Daniel Greenfield explains that "Obama had to spy on Trump to protect himself.":
"It’s the pattern that exposes the motive.
When we learn the whole truth (if we ever do), we will likely discover that Obama Inc. assembled a motley collection of different technically legal pretexts to spy on Trump’s team.
Each individual pretext might be technically defensible. But together they add up to the crime of the century."

Wiretaps may prove Trump right — and that’s absolutely terrifying | New York Post
Considering all that is and has been against him, President Trump is looking more and more like Superman...
In the New York Post, Michael Goodwin writes about the war on Trump and more:
"The more we learn about the last eight years and eight months, the more reason there is to believe that something is rotten in Washington.
I don’t just mean the ordinary corruption of the swamp variety. I mean something fundamental, something that suggests major elements in our government believe they, and not the people, are sovereign."

"A Chicago judge amazingly rules that grant money can be mandatory'
At HotAir.com, Jazz Shaw wrote about this:
"The scrapping over JAG money (Justice Assistance Grants) for sanctuary cities reached the next level this week. A federal judge in Chicago somehow issued an injunction preventing the Justice Department from not issuing grant money to non-compliant cities. As the Associated Press reports, it was Chicago bringing the challenge, but the judge extended his ruling to cover the entire country."
"Danish Government on Escalating Malicious Migrant Crime: 'Worst Situation Since 2nd World War'"
Oh my. "Thousands of incidents"...
10News.One-Danish recently reported:
"Thousands of incidents involving loosened wheel bolts on cars, large rocks or cinder blocks thrown from highway overpasses, and thin steel wires strung across bicycle paths meant to decapitate unsuspecting cyclists, is spreading a growing sense of horror among the Danes.
In almost all cases, the perpetrators have turned out to be from MENAP countries (Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan).
In the latest development of what has been characterized as “massive low-tech jihad“, gangs of migrants and refugees of Arab or North African descent are now shooting innocent people at random in the capitol city of Copenhagen, placing in danger the lives of both locals and visitors to this popular tourist city."

My methods will remain the same as the blog’s original intention.
I’ve always considered unsolicited emails intrusive, and every one I send gives me discomfort.
For you, this means no more “_Undisclosed Recipients” emails from me.
I decline to commit to posting every day, but starting tomorrow, I'll try to share some things you might not find on your own. Granted, some of it may be “different”.
If you notice the 13 flags and color scheme, you'll know where I’m coming from. I'm hoping it all works for you...

And so, it ends
Since January of 2006, I have posted more than 8,200 times, trying to maintain my original intent of linking to information not always easy to come by.
Since then, websites have proliferated exponentially, most sites have multiple contributors, and the ever growing social networks have items of interest from all over. I am a one man band, just a needle in the "news is everywhere" haystack
And so, with that said, it ends, right here and right now, quietly and gracefully.
This page will likely remain here for quite some time, so the search box, the quote of the day, and other links should continue to work.
I wish everyone that has ever visited here the very best.

Trump's Unexpected Ally Against the Clintons--David Brock | RealClearPolitics
As to trying to understand the behavior of the Clintons, I found this both interesting and informative.
And they are a long way from being my kind of people...
And they are a long way from being my kind of people...
At Real Clear Politics, Mark Paoletta digs into a 1996 book, and draws many seemingly accurate conclusions:
"In Seduction, Mr. Brock described many of the traits that make Americans uncomfortable with Hillary Clinton – possibly why nearly 60% of Americans in a recent survey find her 'not honest and trustworthy.' Among these are her tendency toward secrecy and her aversion to transparency. In 1996, Brock wrote:"

"'Allahu Akbar': It Means Almost Everything -- Except What The Establishment Media Says"
AT Breitbart.com, Robert Spencer recently wrote this and more:
"The war-cry is mistranslated in the Western media as “God is great.” But the actual meaning is 'Allah is greater,' meaning Allah Is Greater Than Your God or Government. It is the aggressive declaration that Allah and Islam are dominant over every other form of government, religion, law or ethic, which is why Islamic jihadists in the midst of killing infidels so often shout it. One primary purpose of shouting is to 'strike terror in the hearts of the enemies of Allah' "
KORWIN: America’s Real Gun Problem - The Gun Myths | The Daily Caller
This writer covers almost everything here...
At DailyCaller.com, Alan Korwin provides some insight about gun myths. He begins with:
"Nothing points out the bankruptcy of our nation’s gun-control debate better than the mythologies that surrounds it.
Prior 'common sense' proposals are perpetually abandoned. The so-called 'news' media adopts each new absurd gun-control scheme dutifully, promotes it uncritically, then drops it like a hot potato when it is proven worthless and runs to the next latest greatest bit of hoplophobic (morbid gun fear) ridiculousness."

"sundance" has posted this on the Conservative Treehouse blog:
"There is a bigger controversy about to break wide-open that’s potentially far more significant than Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell approving Nikki Haley’s non-subtle attack on GOP frontrunner Donald Trump. That bigger controversy is the Spanish version of the GOP State of the Union rebuttal containing an 'amnesty pledge'."

At Breitbart.com, Patrick Howley recently wrote about this:
"Clinton’s friendship with a convicted child sex predator, Jeffrey Epstein, again is coming under increased scrutiny, thanks in part to a recent civil lawsuit for defamation filed in Florida against Dershowitz by representatives for two of Epstein’s alleged victims. Dershowitz served as Epstein’s lawyer during Epstein’s criminal criminal.
Not only has Bill Clinton’s name come up in the court proceedings, but Dershowitz, one of the key figures in the case, says that he cannot conclusively deny that Clinton was present at lavish sex orgies thrown on a Caribbean island by Epstein. What’s more, one of the victims said that Bill Clinton in fact was present at an Epstein island orgy."
The 10 Obfuscatory Essentials for Covering Jihad as a Journalist | PJ Media
On the PJ Media website, Ben Weingarten listed them a while back. They still fit very well:
"If you are a journalist covering the slow-motion global jihad, there is a certain formulaic nature to how you treat its victims, victimizers, and the 'broader context' of and for jihadist savagery.
The key is obfuscation. Minimize the extent of the threat, separate the jihadist’s ideology from his acts, and if possible, proudly display your Western guilt by attributing the attacks to perceived slights and injustices at the hands of Israel, Europe, or America.
Here are the 10 essentials for crafting the perfect narrative on the jihad as a member of the media:"
"Big City Machines Losing Control of the Monster They Created"
This sad but true paragraph begins JDZ's post at NeverYetMelted.com:
"Pretty nearly every major American city lives under a thoroughly corrupt, appallingly mismanaged one-party regime, whose permanent grip on power is based on the block voting of a property-less, non-tax-paying, practically illiterate, welfare constituency, residing under what amounts to a permanent military occupation."
Politically correct universities 'are killing free speech' - Telegraph
One would think that universities would be teaching that stifling debate can't be good for society going forward...
In the U.K. Telegraph, Javier Espinoza and Gordon Rayner recently reported on this:
"British universities have become too politically correct and are stifling free speech by banning anything that causes the least offence to anyone, a group of leading academics warns on Saturday. A whole generation of students is being denied the 'intellectual challenge of debating conflicting views' because self-censorship is turning campuses into over-sanitised 'safe spaces', they say."

The 'Read the Bill Act' - Breitbart
That being said, I'd bet it never gets passed because it would take away elected officials' plausible "out" when laws turn our bad...
At Breitbart.com, U.S Rep. Jim Bridenstine writes about what is wrong and his idea to fix it:
"The public mistakenly thinks the Three Day Rule gives Members a minimum of 72 hours to review bills. House Leadership, however, often 'complies' by introducing controversial legislation late Tuesday night and holding votes Thursday morning. Even so, sometimes Leadership overrides the fake Three Day Rule by passing a so-called 'Martial Law' rule to allow same-day consideration of any bill. Only in Washington D.C. can politicians write a new rule to override another rule which they (temporarily) don’t want to follow."
Shocker: As Gun Ownership Hits Record Highs, There's Fewer Murders Than Ever - Christine Rousselle

Christine Rousselle calls attention to this in a post at Townhall.com:
"This dramatic drop in per-capita murders to the lowest point ever recorded since the FBI began tabulating this data 55 years ago is a wonderful thing, especially as it continues to drop as more Americans own more guns that ever."
Cigarette tax revenue plunges as smokers buy outside New York | New York Post
I would label this a case of elected officials' not understanding the consequences of their actions.
Also, revenue shortfalls are likely paid for by "you know who"...
Also, revenue shortfalls are likely paid for by "you know who"...
In a recent New York Post, John Aidan Byrne shared the story on this:
"New York state cigarette tax collections have plunged by about $400 million over the past five years, according to figures and estimates from the office of New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli. And New York has also lost $1.3 billion in uncollected state cigarette taxes each year from alternative sales, according to a separate study.
The state is taxing far fewer packs, as smokers evade taxed packs, shop across state lines or buy smokes from Native American merchants to avoid punitive NY taxes. A typical pack in New York costs $10.60 or more, including the nation’s highest state excise tax, $4.35."
Norway: Oslo Police: “We Have Lost the City” � PoqariNews
The article below is about the apocalyptic level of culturally-enriched violence in Grønland, a district of the city of Oslo...
Oslo, Norway's largest newspaper, AftenPosten recently reported on life in Grenland:
"Grønland is only two subway stops from the Parliament, and one from the Central Station, fairly close to the government offices that were bombed by Breivik. It looks like Karachi, Basra, and Mogadishu all rolled into one. People sell drugs openly just next to the Grønland subway station.
It’s not Norway or Europe anymore, except when there is welfare money to be collected. The police have largely given up. Early in 2010 Aftenposten stated that there are sharia patrols in this area, and gay couples are assaulted and chased away. Immigrant Fatima Tetouani says that ‘Grønland is more Muslim than Morocco'"

"Cologne Attacks Trigger Raw Debate on Immigration in Germany"
Germany, and Europe, are in a bit of trouble with immigration...
The staff of the German publication Der Spiegel have this to say:
"But this hectic, fervid and, at times, hysteric, week has also been about much more: Namely it has been about all of the issues that the right-wing populist party Alternative for Germany (AfD) and the xenophobic movement Pegida have been shouting about for months. It was about Merkel's refugee policies and the upper limit for refugees demanded by her conservative Bavarian allies. Added to that was the perpetual problem of violence against women. It was about the integration of foreigners, the danger of a societal split over the refugee question and a shift to the right in Germany. But it was also about the quality of the work done by the police and about a state being unequal to the task facing it. It is a lot to think about. The role of the 'lying press' can't be forgotten either. And yet, it still isn't entirely clear what actually happened on New Year's Eve in Cologne."
"Why Germany can't face the truth about migrant sex attacks
The U.K.'s Daily Mail, Sue Reid finds:
"...a nation in denial as a wave of horrific attacks is reported across Europe
More than 120 women were targeted in Cologne on New Year's Eve
They were chased, cornered and groped; mobiles and wallets were stolen
‘The men were all foreigners, and when we protested, in German, they did not understand us,’ victim Michelle said
German ministers say 3,200 migrants a day continue to enter the country"

Michelle Malkin identifies them in her Townhall.com post. She begins with:
"On Thursday, CNN will host a town hall with President Obama as part of his 'final-year push to make gun control part of his legacy.' In addition to sitting down with liberal anchor Anderson Cooper, the network says Obama will 'take questions from the audience.'
Uh-oh. Get out your best pruning shears and trowels. In an age of micromanaged partisan stagecraft and left-wing media enablers, there is no such thing as a spontaneous question.
CNN has a long history of allowing political plants to flourish in its public forums."

Secondly, those that "use" children to further a cause should be condemned for it...
On her website, Michelle Malkin writes about the issue and how some "uses" are contrived and orchestrated by activist groups:
"Groomed for a year by an outfit called the 'Full Rights for Immigrants Coalition,' Sophie is the ponytailed poster child for amnesty who was literally propped up in front of the pope during a September visit to Washington, D.C. Latino activists brazenly bragged about training the first-grader before the visit and crafting a letter in her name pleading with the Catholic pontiff to help her rescue President Obama’s executive illegal immigrant amnesty program DAPA (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents), which was halted under federal court order on May. In The Washington Post, a Harvard University professor praised the kiddie human shield tactics of the amnesty movement after Sophie’s stunt."
Minorities line up behind … Donald Trump
Bob Unruh has reported on this at WND.com:
"Pundits might point to billionaire Donald Trump’s huge lead in the GOP presidential primary race as being the result of his generally anti-Washington, anti-government, anti-establishment, anti-politically correct attitude.
If so, it’s not just whites who are ticked at the bureaucracy, but minorities too.
Because a new poll, which still has Trump leading the race, shows 40 percent of blacks are lining up behind Trump, as are 45 percent of Hispanics, and even nearly 19 percent of Asians.
Blacks and Hispanics, in fact, even support Trump at a higher level than whites."

The rape allegation against Bill Clinton, explained - Vox
This seems like a pretty good overview of this issue...
Dylan Matthews shares his thoughts on the Vox.com website:
"So far, this issue has mostly been raised by conservative media and Republican politicians like Prudhomme-O'Brien. But it's a substantive matter worthy of coverage from non-right-wing outlets as well. There really are multiple accusations of sexual assault against Bill Clinton, accusations that have too often been conflated with his much better-established and much less morally concerning history of adultery. Are the women making these accusations survivors who deserve to be believed, to borrow Hillary Clinton's language? Or, as she later insisted, have their accusations all been found to be baseless?
The basic answer is that some of the claims appear more credible than others."
"Sen. Rubio's Voting Record 'Much Worse' Than Senators"
Alex Swoyer recently checked into it. He posts at Breitbart.com:
"In addition, throughout this year, Rubio missed many votes as he ramped up his presidential campaign. For example, in the Spring of 2015 Rubio missed 32.9 percent of votes. Additionally, during this Summer he missed 53.8 percent, and throughout the Fall he missed 58.2 percent."

"EU migration crisis: Far-right parties gain ground across Europe in 2015"
In the U.K. Express, country by country, Nick Gutteridge describes what's going on in Eurpoe's politics:
"This shocking map shows how anti-immigration campaigners have enjoyed huge gains in this year's elections, whilst thousands have taken to the streets to protest against the overwhelming influx of migrants and refugees.
From Greece to Germany and Switzerland to Sweden, far-right protestors and parties have stormed the mainstream of European politics as voters rebel against years of predominantly socialist rule."

"German Muslim Crime Denial Looks a lot like American Black Crime Denial"
Oh, and have you heard the new phrase "politically awkward".
Isn't that special?...
Willie Shields elaborates on this story at AmericanThinker.com:
"German officials want the world to know the 1000 African and Arab men who assaulted, robbed, rampaged and raped 100 or more German women had nothing to do with refugees.
And the Germans will not be talking about it any more, thank you, said German Justice Minister Heiko Maas.
'What happened at the main station in Cologne and other areas on New Year’s Eve is not acceptable,' Maas pronounced. 'It must not happen again and these perpetrators must be held to account.'
Which is what they said last time -- and the time before that."
Burying Negative Polls - Brent Bozell
If you're getting your news from the legacy media, you're NOT getting ALL the news.
We're only getting their version, plus NOT getting what they don't want us to know...
We're only getting their version, plus NOT getting what they don't want us to know...
At Townhall.com, Brent Bozell discusses the reporting of an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll:
" Holt (and NBC) deliberately skipped numbers revolving around this issue that are far more important. Obama has his lowest approval rating since right before the 2014 midterm wipeout, at 43 percent. More to the point, just 37 percent approve and 57 percent disapprove of the president's handling of foreign policy, and only 34 percent approve and 60 percent disapprove of his handling of ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
NBC's pollsters said these low numbers on foreign policy were comparable to George W. Bush's numbers at this point in his second term. In addition, only 20 percent of the public believes the country is headed in the right direction, versus a whopping 70 percent who think it's on the wrong track."
"VA blows off Congress"
This KARE11 media outlet story by A.J. Lagoe demonstrates how out of control it now is:
"MINNEAPOLIS -- Congress demanded answers from the Department of Veterans Affairs after a KARE 11 investigation documented how VA medical centers in Minnesota and Wisconsin were providing false and misleading information about the qualifications of some of their doctors. Records show some doctors never had – or had lost – medical certifications the VA claimed they had."
Elusive crime wave data shows frightening toll of illegal immigrant criminals | Fox News
That being said, I AM a fan of government being shaken, turned upside down, and held accountable for it's NON-actions as well as it's actions...
Malia ZImmerman recently called attention to this story at FoxNews.com:
"The federal government can tell you how many 'Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islanders' stole a car, the precise number of 'American Indian or Alaska Natives' who were arrested for vagrancy or how many whites were busted for counterfeiting in any given year. But the government agencies that crunch crime numbers are utterly unable -- or unwilling -- to pinpoint for the public how many illegal immigrants are arrested within U.S. borders each year."
"Sweden Descends into Anarchy"
And they usually win because few of us have the time and skill required to access foreign press and blogsites...
On the Gatestone Institute website, Ingrid Carlqvist begins with this and tells us what's going on in Sweden:
"Once upon a time, there was a safe welfare state called Sweden, where people rarely locked their doors.
Now, this country is a night-watchman state -- each man is on his own. When the Minister of Justice, Morgan Johansson, encourages breaking the law, it means opening the gates to anarchy. Mr. and Mrs. Swede have every reason to be worried, with the influx of 190,000 unskilled and unemployed migrants expected this year -- equivalent to 2% of Sweden's current population. The number is as if 6.4 million penniless migrants who did not speak English arrived in U.S. in one year, or 1.3 million in Britain.
And the Swedes are preparing: demand for firearms licenses is increasing; more and more Swedes are joining shooting clubs and starting vigilante groups..."

"UK cops knew Muslim rape gangs were targeting schools 5 years ago, did nothing"
At JihadWatch.org, Robert Spencer reports on this:
"'The predominant offender profile of Pakistani Muslim males… combined with the predominant victim profile of white females has the potential to cause significant community tensions.' In other words, don’t say anything about this, because if you do, you’ll be charged with 'racism.' The British authorities, all over the country, let the Muslim rape gangs — which were operating according to the Qur’an’s permission of men to take sex slaves (4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50) — operate with impunity. Better societal death than charges of 'Islamophobia.' Carve that on Britain’s tombstone."
Why Are Many Diseases Back, Decades After Being Wiped Out in the U.S.? - Breitbart
At Breitbart.com, Tom Tancredo wants us to know:
"If you think data about illegal alien crime is hidden from public, just try to find information on the contagious diseases brought across our borders by illegal aliens from nearly 100 countries. If we survey the anecdotal and sporadic official data of the past fifteen years, there is no doubt we are being invaded daily by dangerous diseases."
Rap Sheet: The Women Who Claim to Be Victims of Bill and Hillary Clinton
If the Republican presidential candidates don't lose their courage, this will become very, very interesting...
Breitbart.com's John Nolte shows us the list:
"Despite a laundry list of extremely disturbing allegations involving everything from rape to groping to harassment to character assassination, the DC Media has not only protected white Democrat Bill Clinton, in a number of cases, the media has joined the campaign to destroy these women.
The double standard is glaring.
The pattern is horrifying.
And according to more than one of these alleged victims, Hillary Clinton is Bill’s enabler and the chief protector of their abuser:"
"Pastor: ‘Government As Parent Has Destroyed the Black Family’, Made ‘Black Fatherhood Irrelevant’"

"At a press conference on Wednesday to announce a new initiative to help youth in the nation’s troubled inner cities, the Rev. Cecil Blye, senior pastor at More Grace Ministries in Louisville, Ky., said federal policies designed to fight poverty in the black community have instead 'destroyed' families.
'The paradigm of government as parent has destroyed the black family and made black fatherhood irrelevant,' Blye said at the Stay True to America’s National Destiny (STAND) event at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
'Our welfare policies have incentivized co-habitation, single motherhood, and unemployment,' he said."

My New Year’s Eve dinner and other good times with Donald Trump | Daily Mail Online
See what you think...
Author and former reporter Ronald Kessler thinks a lot of Donald Trump. He begins:
"When Donald Trump came up with the idea of branding his condos and office buildings back in the 1980s, everyone in the real estate business thought he was nuts: traditionally, obscure companies that no one had ever heard of sold and leased real estate.
But the Trump brand came to stand for quality, prestige, and success. In the same way, Trump is branding his presidential candidacy, marketing himself by making provocative comments to get attention. Behind the scenes,
Trump is an entirely different person.
That persona was on display at his black-tie New Year's Eve party, which my wife Pamela Kessler and I attended at Mar-a-Lago, his club and Florida home in Palm Beach."
Germany shocked by Cologne New Year gang assaults on women - BBC News
Here is some of the B.B.C.'s reporting:
"What is particularly disturbing is that the attacks appear to have been organized. Around 1,000 young men arrived in large groups, seemingly with the specific intention of carrying out attacks on women.
Police in Hamburg are now reporting similar incidents on New Year's Eve in the party area of St Pauli. One politician says this is just the tip of the iceberg.
And there are real concerns about what will happen in February when the drunken street-parties of carnival season kick off.
Cologne will stage carnival events in February, with hundreds of thousands of revellers expected in the streets, as on New Year's Eve. "
Don Surber: When Don Imus asked the question we all should have asked
Last month, on his blog, Don Surber shared this old but still appropriate stuff:
"My cyberbuddy Clarice Feldman brought this radio interview from November 18, 2008, to attention on Facebook last night. It is a hoot."
"President Obama, Chancellor Merkel, Prime Minister Cameron: would you feel differently about forcing Muslim refugees on your country if one of your daughters were to be raped and sodomized by one of them?"
Clearly, most of the world has their respective heads deep in the sand...
Dr. John asks this on the FloppingAces website:
"You’ve got to wonder what the hell is going on, but Germany isn’t alone. It’s part of a pattern of suppressing the truth about the culture of Muslim 'migrants' and 'refugees.' England looked the other way while 1400 young girls were sexually abused over more than decade for the sake of political correctness."
"Why Are We Taking in Refugees?"
Duh! It's because we are stupid.
At AmericanThinker.com, Catherine Sellers discusses the issue and the likely consequences:
"We don’t have enough jobs for the citizens of this country, much less jobs for new arrivals. We have over 94 million working-age adults not working, most because they cannot find jobs. According to John Williams at shadowstats.com, our real unemployment is somewhere around 23 percent if you count those who are without jobs over the long term and have given up looking for work. Millions more, who would like a full-time job, are working one or more part-time jobs. Our welfare and Medicaid rolls are already overflowing with citizens and immigrants. The U.S. government is broke and paying for this welfare with borrowed dollars, all funded on the backs of taxpayers."

"Another 'Scientific Consensus' Bites the Dust"
At AmericanThinker.com, Jonathan F Keller wants us to know:
"New studies of pre-modern humans, dating back many millennia, demonstrate that arteriosclerosis (the hardening of the arterial blood vessels that causes blockages and heart attacks) afflicted people who (by necessity and not choice) followed that most rigid of diet and exercise regimens -- hunting and gathering.
The mummified remains of Neolithic era humans from around the globe demonstrate that arterial disease was about as commonplace in those ancient populations as it is today.
Despite the fact that these people had diets low on saturated fats, high in proteins, vegetables and fruits, and engaged in regular and strenuous exercise, they still suffered from heart disease as they aged at about the same rates as modern humans."
Ethics office under fire for Clinton speeches | Washington Examiner
In the Washington Examiner, Sarah Westwood reports on this:
