      Let’s caucus, IOWA…..It’s time to get out the vote. Contact your family and friends this weekend. Encourage them to vote to ‘make America great again.’ That phrase is not just words in this case…it’s action. This is a revolution by the people to take back our government……WITHOUT loss of life…. without any bloodshed at all–peacefully, using the greatest power on planet earth, DEMOCRACY.

        Agreed, but I will add the caveat that, whatever I think of the Obamas, they have done a sterling job of raising Sasha and Malia. The girls have not caused a minute of trouble or been the focus of negative attention, the entire eight years they’ve lived in the White House, and they’re at an age where that is most likely to happen. When they went to China with Michelle and her mother, the latter two reportedly drove even their accommodating Chinese hosts nuts with their constant carping, but the former two were models of decorum. They’re lovely girls. Any dour faces are most likely due to the teenage angst associated with having to live in a fishbowl and be followed around by secret service old guys all the time, when they didn’t ask for this life.

          The media covers for the O so much, how would we know if the girls did something?

          If the girls did do something embarrassing…the media would throw themselves on that story like it was a hand grenade, and never let it be seen or heard from again.

            I agree with you wheatieto. Besides how could the mother be able to educate those girls if she is not very well educated herself. Something is fishy with that family. I dont know enough to pinpoint what

              You want fishy–try looking them up on Ancestry under their full names and birthdate, with or without parents. A bunch of pictures from the last few years, and a dog obit for one daughter’s name, oddly enough.

              And they were delivered at home, by a family friend. I first ran into the contention of the Potemkin family his first term, and laughed it off.

              But–I am a crack researcher and archiver–I have to be, as a writer. And I have picked away at the issue of the obama family history for years now–and have gotten nowhere. I have seen sealed records, confidential records, all kinds of things like that on Ancestry, as I have the full premium account –but never NO RECORDS found. Records labelled Sealed adoption records, records sealed by courts, records confidential. but never NO records.

              I am NOT stating that those are not their children–as I can not prove to my satisfaction they aren’t. But I WILL state that there are many things that don’t add up, and many things that are just not found in ANY other case.

              There is definitely something fishy, about the whole family. We may never know the whole story of the obamas.

              And for anyone who wants to start verifying for themselves that has ancestry, start by Binging (I boycott Google because they don’t pay you to search–and if they’re selling my data, I should get something LOL)

              “obamas children not theirs”. You want the website titled :Update for lack of birth records for obama’s children, orlytaitzesq(dot)com.

              If nothing else, it’s an interesting mystery….

He pointed out that if you stripped away the flesh on the skulls–sorry that sounds gross–he doesn’t think the typical markers you’d find in family/related people would be present. One of the only non tin foil hat people I know who has maintained from day one that neither child belongs to the obamas.

          They have NOT done a sterling job with those girls. Their pouty countenances are revealing. Doing a sterling job foes not include sending your fourteen year old daughter off to A country that is on a Travel watch list for danger to Americans with her school friends and a bunch of secret service MEN (mostly) WITHOUT any parents. That is reckless not sterling.

          Sterling parents do not surround their children almost exclusively with adults entrenched in Hollywood debauchery. Sterling parents do not have their daughter summer intern with Lena Dunham on set of “Girls”.

          Sterling parents do not hold regular weekly parties on school nights with trashy celebrities, really foulmouthed trashy people. Sterling parents do not elevate these people to honorable and good.
          I could go on and on with a list as long as this comment section.

            wheatietoo said nothing negative about the girls would ever come out because the media protects them, followed by citizen 817 finding a negative story about Malia, which was no worse than Jenna and Barbara Bush’s antics trying to buy drinks with a friend’s driver’s license. Any kid would want to intern on a TV show, if she could, although Girls is a rubbish choice. Unless you’ve been a fly on the wall in their home, you have no idea where they are on school nights, or what their parents have taught them. They’re 15 and 17, and they’re being commented on like they’re a couple of road house floozies. All I’m saying is that they’ve never been an embarrassment and they seem to be very nice, polite girls. If that amounts to “pc crap,” so be it.

              The few times they have been in the public eye, they’ve acted appropriately, as far as I saw. I wouldn’t have let them spring break in Mexico without parents, and would have chosen a different show for my daughter (if I had one) to intern on, if only because allowing one of the first kids to intern on a show can be seen as a tacit endorsement of the show’s views by some people–but they aren’t my kids.

              I detest obama and his wife, and will be glad to see them leaving 1600 Penn Ave. When it comes to the girls–kids can’t choose their parents, and I doubt living in the White House makes for a “comfortable” life for any kid. I often wondered when it came to young children of presidents–who do they play with? How the heck do you go to a sleep over with secret service in tow? Just the things that make you go hmmm. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were happy to leave the first family gig. I probably would have gone nuts in their place, and I was far from a social butterfly….

In May 1790, New York began construction of Government House for his official residence, but he never occupied it.

              True–but I am hopeful that their PC madness won’t stand up for long against the societal meltdown that is about to hit them and the EU. Libiotitis is curable–but in their case, the cure might hurt worse than the illness, BIG TIME.

              Also, if he approaches it right, they’ll give Churchill back, just to reinforce their sense of social superiority, and look magnanimous.

              I wouldn’t want Churchill to come back that way, but I would like him back. And normalizing relationships with nations that obama has insulted should be a priority when Trump gets elected.

              We have tough and dangerous times coming world wide, and we’ll need all the friends we can get that are actual friends, or at least not planning to nuke us or bankrupt us for personal gain.

              Besides, I’m an optimist–Trump grows on people :-). My other half was totally not a fan, until we went to the rally. Then he got interested, then impressed. Some day he may really LIKE Trump, not just respect his intelligence and tactical skills LOL.

          And in a way, he’s right. I can’t think of anything Cruz could have done that would p*ss me off more–because I still remember the near heart attack I had when I got one of those last year. Living in Tucson, I know more than one person who has gone to the polls and found that records showed they had already voted… So I genuinely thought until I opened the letter that my ID had been stolen and I was in legal trouble.

      Well I see Trump as living by the motto you should be proud of what you accomplish, not what you hope to accomplish. Pride in America should come from our making it great, knowing its great, and knowing its great because we made it that way. Saying we’ll make it great is but one step. Over the past 40 years American pride has lacked substance and our best have been demoralized by knowing that American pride is currently a hollow catch phrase. If American’s simply embrace the challenge of making America great, our pride will return immediately and its power will make us, yet again, unstoppable.

      One reason American pride is the greatest force on earth is the simple fact that American pride is actually pride in the power of every individual person on earth whether they live here or not — the American system (and the American dream) is for anyone anywhere, who chooses to embrace it.

    Ivanka has to stay calm or else she might go into labor on caucus night. Which Donald says is OK to have the baby in Iowa because the whole family is there and they would be together.

    talked with my bother a usual Iowa delegate to conventions after the caucus and he said Iowa has opened up many more caucus sites than usual this time to handle the larger expected turnout. So the long line issue may not be too bad.

    If you are not interested in the final vote and/or the selection of delegates to conventions by vote ratio, then the process goes pretty quick. But after the vote is tallied, then the delegate selection process proceeds.

    The complete caucus process is actually pure grassroots Democracy in action. Vote, count, re-count, select candidates by group based on vote ratios. Trump group select Trump delegates, etc.

        I cannot, I mean I cannot, believe that this is an actual Cruz approved video. It makes no sense. It is not possible Cruz would have approved this, or his wife would have approved this.

        A lot of manipulation can go into video, and who knows who released this.

        Anyone can be made to seem creepy — ANYONE.

        I laugh, but I also hesitate.

          A while back, I read that this Cruz family video was indeed approved by Cruz himself, who allowed these clips, many from the so-called cutting room floor, to be put on the internet for all to see. ??just weird…

          …more confirmation that Cruz seems a bit strange…

          I think this is part of the raw footage that the Cruz campaign put up on YouTube so that the Super PACs could edit if for ads. But that left all this footage open for others to edit, too. It was a dumb move for a campaign to open themselves up to ridicule like this because whoever did edit this piece and put it together makes them look awful.

          A lot of manipulation DID go into this video–on purpose. This is what Psychographic Segmentation is all about, and I would lay long odds that this was the product of Cambridge Analytica–I recognize their “style”, so to speak. This one appears to be targeted right around center Bell Curve–so if you find it mesmerizing but “creepy”, and you don’t quite know why–then you’re an “out lying subject” to use one common term, meaning the metrics this was designed to compel to action aren’t a close enough fit to you to over ride the “creepy” feeling–but close enough to fascinate.

          And if you think this is “creepy”–you should take a look at what the, shall we say, “Eurocentric agrarian populists/ nationalists” are up to. Bing “National Policy Institute who are we video”. But fair warning–if you think this one is “creepy” THAT ONE IS SCARY.

          FYI, people indirectly associated with the worst of the “white nationalist” crowd (and by worst I mean most dangerous) have reportedly been robo-calling urging the vote out for Trump in Iowa, Washpo has been following the trump/white nationalist connection that is only one way–TRUMP does NOT want their support, but THEY are campaigning for him.

          ALL of us need to keep a sharp eye out for the WN’s, as their “support” could cause Trump real trouble, and of course there’s no legal or constitutional way to get them to shut up–and even if there WERE, I wouldn’t.

          But we need to educate people on dangerous videos–like the one above and the one at National Policy Institute. This intermingling of highly sophisticated manipulation and politics is toxic.

          Sorry for the rant–but Electing Trump is only the first step in fixing America, and part of THAT is regaining control of our language, information, and how that information is disseminated. Unless we do that, any good Trump does in office won’t LAST, and I want my kids and future grandkids to know the America we knew.

              I had the same reaction to it, on a personal level, which is a real plus–since that means when I have the time to sit down and break it down for study, I won’t get distracted.

              And every ad they put out has information in it, because PS leaves footprints, and the more footprints I can identify, the more memes and ads of all types I can flag and bag for my files.

              They are becoming prevalent, now that the science is catching up with the technology, unfortunately.

              I keep an eye on them and the people who create them because as far as I am concerned, tweaking ads to increase market share in dish detergent is one thing–but tweaking people’s perceptions of themselves, and their worldview, is quite another.

              I had stopped supporting Cruz well before this, due to his shift in voting, but his hiring C.A. solidified my opinion.

              I checked out Trump’s organization to the extent public information is available, and he DOES utilize marketing metrics, but so far as I can tell he does so as another tool to choose campaign stops.

              And as much as I want to help him get elected, if he starts pulling funny stuff like that, I will be the first to scream.

              We all have our red lines, and 1984 is mine ;-). We are already losing our memories, and becoming too dependent on technology.

              The last thing we need is more people being subverted against their knowledge. We have already ceded our language to the left, and those who control the language control the argument.

              Those who control the flow of information, control the world view.

              Electing Trump in and of itself is NOT a permanent answer–if we’re going to Make America Great Again, we have to be able to rebuild what we’ve given away.

                  This is a very long reply, as there is much to be said here. The first part concerns the video, Jared Taylor, and some background. The second part is why this video is flat out dangerous.

                  NPI’s former director is none other than Jared Taylor, the man who worked with the American Freedom Party to make the robo-calls in Iowa.

                  These days, he edits American Renaissance magazine, gives interviews, works on more books on “racial realism”, and is a “spokesperson” for the Council of Conservative Citizens. Coincidentally, that is the website the Charlestown Nutball found that gave him HIS epiphany.

                  Mr. Taylor utterly condemned the results despite the nutball’s legitimate concerns….

                  That epiphany didn’t work out well, for the people in the church….

                  Here is a link to a TIME article. It is definitely slanted LEFT. But it does make a couple of interesting points under the “scare factor”:

                  They used to be more overtly for a fully segregated society, then they re-messaged towards no immigration and no integrated marriage. Their LANGUAGE has moved to the “center”, the very reasonable argument of “everyone ELSE can have their own associations–we should be able to also”. AND HE IS EXACTLY RIGHT. But, is what he SAYS, what he MEANS?

                  He who controls the language, controls the argument. And you don’t eat an elephant in one gulp, you eat it a bite at a time.

                  Some of our elected officials have spoken there at events.
                  He did donate to several of our current candidates, but they gave the money back after the nutball story broke. BECAUSE BEING ASSOCIATED WITH THIS GUY IS BAD OPTICS. Which leads us back to that robo-call…..
                  Perhaps the most interesting fact of all: while we discuss the victims of black on black violence, he concentrates on black on white violence–but WHITE ON WHITE violence is the biggest killer, by far, for whites.

                  And the “other side” is exactly the same–ignoring black on black crime, screaming about white on black crime.

                  BOTH sides of our society have the same problem–we’re killing each other, frequently.

                  But how often do you hear EITHER side talk about their intraracial murder rate? I rarely see people discussing it in forums, unless they are using it in the context of “far more whites murder other whites than murder blacks”–which no matter how you say it, looks like what it is–a rather weak “defense”.

                  The two facts have NOTHING to do with each other.

                  But the only time black on black OR white on white murder comes up, it’s in the “defense” context (well, yeah, whites killed 100 blacks. BUT WHITES KILLED 3000 WHITES…)–we use THEIR intraracial murder rates to highlight their violence in general, to accuse (well look at how many they killed this weekend… If “black lives REALLY mattered, they’d do something about black on black crime)…

                  When you see it in print and THINK about it, and what it is REALLY saying, you begin to see the issue. People like the race baiters, the “race realists”, the “race activists” are all working to further the same toxic message.

                  For money. For power.

                  It doesn’t matter how logical your position is. It doesn’t matter how right your position is. IF YOU FRAME THE LANGUAGE TO CREATE DIVISION, YOU ARE JUST AS MUCH A PART OF THE PROBLEM AS THE OTHER GUY.

                  If people weren’t angry, and scared, and PROGRAMMED WITH THE LANGUAGE OF THE LEFT–then BLM couldn’t work. Fergusen couldn’t work. Charleston couldn’t work.

                  But because so many people have grown up reading this toxic language, hearing it on the news, and in movies, music, and THEY HAVE NOT BEEN TAUGHT TO THINK CRITICALLY, or think independently–the language works. And even we old folks are falling prey to it. I doubt anyone here would tolerate the pure filth that comes from a storm fronter.

                  But when you strip away the gentle, centerist words, and begin studying the LOGIC and MEANING behind “racial realism”, or the intelligent discourse and culture you find in forums frequented by the NPI crowd, well–same root message.

                  Just because a turd is polished, and in a pretty, clean, box presented by a world renowned professor doesn’t mean it isn’t still a turd.

                  Jared Taylor is an extremely intelligent, well read, cultured person. And about 75% of what he writes about is based in solid, pragmatic foundations, that have workable, liberty oriented solutions–if you approach them from true conservatism (not his kind, our kind–what our founders termed “classical liberalism”, what is now Libertarian/conservative).

                  It’s the other 25% that’s the problem.

                  We have a generation in college that has been steeped in toxic language from the earliest years.

                  They have not been taught to think. I know more than one who literally can’t remember who they voted for last election–OR WHO WAS RUNNING.

                  And they aren’t druggies, either. Our society now makes it possible for someone to be a functional amnesiac.

                  My younger son doesn’t know my phone number–but his phone does. And he was home schooled and far more educated than anyone he knows, other than his brother.

                  He and his brother both constantly comment on how ignorant AND stupid most of the people their age are.

                  I know 3 college students who don’t know how to read analog clocks, but they are “honor students”.

                  They don’t know math, can’t spell–but most importantly, they can’t REMEMBER, and they can’t THINK.

                  If someone had asked you your home phone number, parents’ work number, best friend’s number when you were in your twenties–I bet you knew them. You probably still know SOME numbers–but you’re a rare person if you know all your friends’ numbers.

                  If someone had tried to tell you in middle school that “gender is a social construct”, and you would be sharing a bathroom with someone of the opposite sex (whether you liked it or not) at school–what would have happened?

                  Yet now–we have that and more. We have parents declaring their children to be transgendered BASED ON YOU TUBE VIDEOS. And society celebrating them for their enlightenment, and doctors willing to subject their children to horrific drug cocktails.

                  And all that came about because we have allowed the left to hijack our language, our information sources, and information delivery.

                  Which leads us back to this, a video that you found shallow and sickening–and it is–because YOU ARE HEARING THE REAL WORDS, NOT GETTING THE METRICS. The metrics are the visuals in this video, and the music.

                  When someone like you, or I–because I have been studying and documenting this catastrophe for a few decades now hears this shallow, whining defeatist message, we see it for what it is, not National Pride, or European Pride, or White Pride–but self-hatred, immaturity, insecurity, and a load of monumental horse crap.

                  But when the out of work plumber on his 99th week of unemployment sees this video, after another day of fruitless job hunting, another news story about illegals or rioting BLMers, and a few beers–He GETS IT.

                  The college student who literally can’t remember past last semester, who marches with BLM because you’re supposed to be “post racial” but is actually pissed off that his roommate got excused from a test because of “trauma” from “white privilege”–
                  HE GETS IT, TOO.

                  If you SEE THE REAL MESSAGE–the language, stripped away from the imagery and music and you remember what the words really meant (before the left hijacked them)–it’s poisonous, because it leads to nothing.

                  But to those who don’t remember THE REAL MEANING OF THE WORDS–the phrase you keyed on is the one that slaps them in the face–because, guess what?

                  TO THEM–THIS IS A PLACE TO GO SHOPPING.

                  They’ve been taught all their lives that America is dead, freedom is dead, patriotism is dead, God is dead. That we’re in a “post-constitutional society”,That you can “self-identify” as anything your heart desires–and then heaven help the person who doesn’t embrace your “self-identification”

                  So, yep–just another place to go shopping, and hardly even that, now that we have Amazon Prime.

                  So they are empty, hollow people–and this video SHOWS them that, and TELLS them that, and then TELLS them that if they just embrace their roots, they will magically be filled.

                  Who wouldn’t jump at that deal, if they were are emotionally bankrupt as the current generation is? Who wouldn’t jump at being part of an IMPORTANT community, a parade of civilization that stretches back thousands of years, Camelot and all?

                  They understand very well who “Americans” are now–us dinosaurs, the remnants of a saner country than we have now, and the lost.

                  Call it what you like–rampant social psychosis, leftism, NWO. It all comes under the same heading, something that not only has placed this republic in mortal peril, but is also threatening the world, financially and socially.

                  The world can wait, because we have to deal with Making America Great Again. Which means when we get our president elected (God willing), we need to be ready to take back our language. Take back our textbook companies, our schools, our media, and take back the internet.

                  Because otherwise these sick hollow people will, eventually, get their Utopia, and I sure as hell don’t want to think about the consequences of that.

    Although the original building worked, the size was becoming to small for the growing business. Since buying the building wasn’t an option at the time, Darrell and Marilyn decided that they would build a new, larger building across the road. The new building was a large yellow machine shed that could seat roughly 80 people and had much more space in the kitchen and for storage.

  33. So, I was just over at Steven Goddard’s ‘Real Science’ WordPress blog, and he made a post, complete with a newspaper clip about the GOP trying to stop Reagen.

    He asked the rhetorical question: “Does this sound familiar?”

    Now the hilarious thing, the very first comment responds with: “Yes. And now they’re trying to stop Cruz!!!”

    Umm. Not sure what planet that commenter is living in, but the GOP has barely lifted a finger in trying to ‘Stop Cruz’. They if anything have been propping him up when it came to Iowa, or ignoring him at worst.

    I mean, I don’t see Establishment GOPers insulting Cruz supporters. Can’t say the same about how they express themselves when it comes to Trump supporters.

    The only candidate the GOP is having a flip out over has been Donald J Trump.

    But, well Cruz supporters live in delusion, that he his Reagen 2.0. Which is weird, since their biographical stories do not line up one bit. Much more sense when compared to Trump and his journey I think toward this moment.

It will be hard enough to get Trump elected, as there are still plenty of tricks the opposition can pull, I couldn’t see it working at all with Carson….

          Thanks, I thought it would be. His dislike of Trump is the result of having lived in NYC area for a short time and assuming Trump has to be a Progressive to be successful there. Also Trump was a registered DemiRat for a while and donated to some of the DemiRat candidates.

          I was born in NYC and also lived for twenty years in Boston. You survive by keeping your mouth shut when politics are discussed. I doubt anyone knew I was a rabid Capitalist. Heck I was a registered DemiRat for a while just so I could vote in a center left vs a far left in the primaries.

          I see Trump’s moves as a purely pragmatic business move. Most savvy businessmen donate to both parties. Heck Maurice Strong donated to the Republicans as well as the Democrats and he was a flat out Communist and a Canadian.

          This latest on Cruz must be causing major cognitive dissonance.

    This is REALITY! All this bull about who’s a real Conservative or who’s the real Conservative? My response to the Political Money Men and CORRUPT so called “Conservatives”:
    ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS. Trump is a Courageous PATRIOT. He contributes to numerous charitable causes, individual people and small businesses. None of which makes the headlines or nightly news.
    He has been doing. Our Politicians talk, but don’t act. To paraphrase the Famous Christian TV personality, Joyce Myers, ” sitting in a garage doesn’t make you a care. Sitting in a Church doesn’t make you a Christian “. In my words calling yourself a Conservative Politician, going to D.C. and Voting like a Democrat after LYING to your constituents to get elected sure Doesn’t MAKE YOU A CONSERVATIVE!
