    Who are we and why do we fight?
    We are sons and daughters of the United States of America and we fight to protect our mother country.
    We are Americans and we fight to defend ourselves.
    We govern ourselves and we fight to preserve that privilege.

    I have a pet peeve about the inappropriate use of the word “rhetoric”. I really wish people, especially reporters, would look up it’s meaning. Example: “Trumps tweets about the London terror attacks reflect much of the same rhetoric he used on the campaign trail”. It’s not rhetoric if it’s letterally true and accurate.

    • Rhetoric is a matter of oratorical style, not the accuracy (or lack of it) in the content, Joe. It’s the way you choose to express ideas, not whether or not they are correct. A true statement contains the same amount of rhetoric as a false statement, but a person who communicates more effectively is considered to have more rhetorical skill. Rhetoric is always useful to the communicator, but it may be equally used to express truth well, or to lie well.


  3. Joe Knuckles says:

    I could be wrong, but I do not expect the virtue signaling Dhimmi-fest in Manchester to be a target for Islamic terror. The message they will be spreading is exactly what the Islamists want, open borders, “coexist”, etc, etc..
    These idiots will be spreading the Islamists’ taqqiyah for them. Why would they want to stop them?

    So the news has been going on for 15 or so hours, a Van jumps the curb.

    Anybody notice President Trump called it a ‘Truck’… forcing all the liberals to split hairs and retweet his tweets and correct him “It’s a Van, not a Truck”.

    He is LIGHTYEARS ahead of the competition in terms of branding, persuasion, getting his message out, tying the press in knots, reducing his opposition to spell checking the truth.

      Then why did our “founding fathers” put it in the Constitution? One of their great fears was that of tyranny from the government, a subject they lived through. It gave “we the people” an “end run around” the rulers. Hell yes everyone is against it, just like all the crap weasels are against President Trump. It takes 2/3’rds of Congress and 3/4 of all the states to ratify any proposed amendment change.

  8. heidi says:

    Wouldn’t it be interesting if, at some point during the Presidential campaign, one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington DC ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?

    I did not know of this Act until recently, but it has been a law for almost 65 years.

    Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington DC do not have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in OUR country.

    After several terrorist incidents were carried out in the United States, Donald Trump was severely, criticized for suggesting that the U.S. should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims).

    The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things, being Un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist. Congressmen and Senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and our President called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.

    As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, Surprise, Surprise!” It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions.

    Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the “Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President, whenever the President finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. The President may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”

    And who do you suppose last utilized this process? Why it was president Jimmy Carter, no less than 37 years ago, in 1979, to keep Iranians out of the United States.

    But he actually did more. He made ALL Iranian students, already in the United States, check in with the government. And then he deported a bunch of them. Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.

    So, what say you about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received from the Democrat Senators, Representatives and the Obama Administration?

    Additionally, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act also requires that an “applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”

    Therefore, one could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, ALL Muslims should be refused immigration to OUR country.

    • It’s a common mistake to note the existence of a single law like McCarran-Walter without doing sufficient research to see if it is still in use as originally written. It isn’t.

      Laws exist as a body of regulations which are often refined and altered over time. McCarran-Walter has been substantially neutered since 1952 by later laws, and later SCOTUS cases. It has been amended many times and was modified substantially by the Immigration and Nationality Services Act of 1965, the Immigration Act of 1990, and the Patriot Act.

      The 1990 Immigration Act for the most part gutted exclusions or deportations based on ideology. It effectively codified earlier legislative attempts to extend the broadest reading of First Amendment protections to foreigners who have no allegiance or duty to the United States. It embraced a vision expanding border-crossing rights to America’s sworn enemies, so long as they restrict their anti-Americanism to advocacy, as opposed to overtly dangerous acts.

    • Bull Durham says:

      Bad idea. Most of the radicalization is digital and verbal in mosques.
      I don’t want to write new laws. I want to kill more terrorists.

      Where’s the great financial blocking of funding, interruption of arms flow and destruction of the the dark web components of ISIS and AQ?

      The reason they keep expanding (into Philippines, Xinjiang, Malaysia, Kryskistan, Beluchistan, Sub-Sahara) is the US and its grand coalition is not getting the job done.
      With all the financial power of the US over banking in the world, with all the power of the NSA in communications, with all the control of arms supplies by the US Pentagon, we see nothing change, month after month, regardless of words spoken and policies announced.

      If I can track US military gear aboard US contracted ships sailing to Jordan and Saudi Arabia and those armaments arriving in the Syrian battle zone in the hands of AQ, al Nusra, and ISIS, I can only conclude that we are on the wrong side.

      At home, we need enforcement of laws and straight-talk and common sense. We cannot ever allow the Left, the loons, the radical antifa, or the radical muslims to take the streets or the airways from us. That’s what we must do. We have to be citizen-soldiers. We must support the talented voices (like SD) of the sovereign Republic and demand our Constitution be upheld. The People have to be activists. Liberty is calling and we have to answer.

  12. Just some questions to pose to lovers of the Paris Treaty… err, I mean Agreement, if you run across any:

    The stated purpose of this agreement is to lower CO2 emissions in an effort to curb global warming. They say the US is the largest CO2 emitter on the planet. However, the stated mechanism for the agreement is for the US to financially support poorer economies efforts to curb their own emissions.

    If the US really is the largest emitter of CO2 then why are we funding other countries emission efforts? Shouldn’t we use that money ourself? If the purpose is to really curb climate change shouldn’t this be a global effort to support our reduction of emission, not the other way around?

    I’m telling you, once you see the schemes you simply can’t unsee them.

        Putin, though, has figured out that Obama is a wuss, and he does not respect Pajama Boys. So, Obama is so jealous of the possibility of two Alpha males (Putin and Trump) trying to build a relationship, since Obama could not win over Putin. He tried so hard, though.

    Solid job done by Brit Hume hear in knocking down the expected testimony of Comey. I’m feeling a lot better about things on that front than I had been feeling. From FOX News Sunday today.

    You’ll notice that even rabid Trump hater Juan Williams pretty much concedes all of Hume’s points, and that even he realizes that the Comey stuff is political/PR stuff with probably no legal merit.

    Trump is close to his lows in some polls. Ok. Not that I trust polls, of course.

    My personal feeling is that Comey’s gambit will likely be the “bottoming out” of Trump’s poll numbers. The media will drive the coverage into the ground to try to hurt Trump.

    But I think after that, Trump can start to permanently rise in the polls.

    Of course, there is no election involving Trump for years. And we know the GOP has been doing just fine in the special elections so far. Thus, polls mean little at this moment.

    To me, Comey’s testimony is the last real domino to fall in the Muh Russia nonsense. At least if Mueller stays on the reservation. Thus, I’m eager to move Comey off the stage and then I think Trump can truly begin his presidency and remove the shackles of Muh Russia.

    Also, I agree with the feeling that Trump should let Comey testify. Don’t try to block it. Comey is a fool, so let him remind everyone of that on Thursday.

    The authorities know the identities of the three dead attackers. 24 hours later they still have not named them.

    However, BBC just ran an interview with neighbors who turned one of the attackers identity into the hotline two years ago, and another person did the same more recently. So the Brits are culpable. Sort of like the CIA and FBI doing nothing about the Boston Bombers. Remarkably like that failure.
    Stunningly like that failure.

    However, even if this guy was radicalized, this attack smells. All the control of the reporting, the absolute failure of all media to get out accurate information is amazing.

    Four cops were injured. Four cops with no guns apparently.

    The big give away that this attack is fishy is the phony bomb vests. To what purpose does wearing a Halloween suicide vest serve?

    This event appears to be a false flag. Real deaths, real terror, real casualties. But a total failure of government to protect. And so far, a total coverup.

        Complete nonsense! I am, frankly, upset that you would even think such a thing. This was not a false flag. The UK police have been trained in rapid response. The fact that some local bobbies, who were first on scene, were unarmed is because they are unarmed as a matter of course. The quick response team were heavily armed. Also, London is not that big of a geographic area so response time will be quick.

        I can assure you that the Brits are WELL ahead of the US in response to terrorism events – but they are very controlled, do not release information unless it serves the public good.

        The big problem is that they do know who the jihadis are… but, due to political correctness and the sway the moslem invaders who have managed to hold sway over government, means that they cannot arrest them until they do something actionable – this is why they are able to arrest so many so quickly after an event. Based on May’s statement today, it would seem that might be about to change.

I said that tho that may be true the non-terrorist muslims are doing nothing to condemn the terrorists and support the mosques where the imamms push sharia law and praise the extremists. I concluded with facts that Islamic terrorists have killed over 20,000 and injured over 50,000 since 1970 (Wikipedia). The idiot responded by claiming that the figures are not fair and if you used the same reasoning you could condemn any other group in the same way. When I challenged for them to show me one other group that even came close to these numbers there was a pause and then the response was ‘the German people under Hitler were Christian!’ LOL…. after I picked my self up from ROFLMAO I could only responde that if you believe Hitler was a Christian then you are really hitting the Koo-Aid Waaaayyyyyyy too hard!!! These people are nuts! God Bless President Donald J. Trump

      Over at The_Donald, they have been posting a chart for months.
      The chart shows the number of terrorist attacks by religious groups, soi am sure it available in any search.
      Btw, Global Terrorism Database is good to check periodically.

    CONFIRMING WHAT WE ALREADY KNEW: The Bill/Loretta tarmac conversation was NOT about “golf and grandkids.” In fact, the NSA is refusing to release the recording due to “national security” risks. Heh. #CrookedHillary

      BUT . . . PTrump himself and undoubtedly a number of people on his team have the clearance, the “need to know” and the authorization to access that material. We really don’t think PTrump is sitting at his desk saying “Gosh, I really wish I knew what was on that tape”, do we?

      And isn’t AG Sessions quiet these days?

    Does anyone remember the mystery illness that seemed to hit kids around 3yrs ago? Right around the time that Obama surged illegals/kids crossing the border? They got dispersed all over the place and suddenly American kids were getting sick and dying – it happened here and was on the news, but nothing was ever said about it after initial reports…. it seems it has morphed into a polio like virus…

    Sharyl Atkisson is investigating and is getting stonewalled by the CDC:


    I have suggested that she try going to each States dept of health to see if she can match cases to the border crossing surge.

      I wonder if we could help Sharyl with this? Perhaps find the data for where the unaccompanied minors were distributed… I know there is a site that has that already, anyone remember it?

      I remember reading about that virus, it has disabled a lot of children. I remember there being a small outbreak in Colorado.

      “Believe it or not, AFM paralysis isn’t a “reportable disease” like West Nile virus or Measles, meaning doctors aren’t required to report cases. Dr. Greenberg thinks that should change. In fact, he advocates a broadened surveillance system to track all kinds of sudden paralysis to better find answers as to what’s causing them.”

      This last paragraph in the story is the issue. It’s not a reportable disease which means that by law state health departments do not have to report it to CDC. I’ve sent over 2K medical/health related FOIAs. Hands down CDC is the least compliant, but in this case since it’s not reportable they won’t necessarily even have all the data to report. Individual FOIAs would need to be sent to all state health departments, but it’s the local HDs that sometimes have more data. Unfortunately it’s probably impossible to know the source locations.

      I would suggest sending FOIAs to the border states and drill down to the major cities HDs, such as Dallas, Phoenix, etc. and even HDs in small areas closer to the border.

      Unfortunately, personal medical records are protected by HIPAA; therefore, without consent those aren’t produced. Not sure how much data any HD would have beyond that since it isn’t a reportable disease.

      There is no doubt this illness was imported. Whenever we see measle outbreaks, resistant TB, mumbs and other comminicable diseases that we have immunized our population for, it is more than likely it’s an import.

      Yes, I remember it. Enterovirus EV-D68

      I read an article on EV-D68 at the time by Judicial Watch, and the “fact checking” by Snopes perfectly illustrates that they are lying weasels.

      The Judicial Watch article:
      Recently Arrived Illegal Alien Minors Spread Deadly Virus

      “Virtually nonexistent in the U.S. before the recent influx of illegal alien minors, the lethal Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) is associated with severe respiratory illness and is known to come from Central America.

      “By October 538 victims—mostly young children—were confirmed to have EV-D68 in 43 states, according to information provided by the CDC, and by the end of the month confirmed infections reached 998. That’s 300 times the infection rate during a period that spanned more than three decades, from 1970 to 2003.”

      Snopes showed up as a related article beneath the facebook post linking the Judicial Watch article, and this case shows the unreliability and bias of Snopes, which many naively consider the be-all and end-all of fact checking.

      The Snopes entry:
      Are Immigrant Kids Spreading Enterovirus (EV-D68)?
      Was the Enterovirus (D68) outbreak caused by an influx of immigrant children?

      Snopes diverts from the question posed by setting up a strawman argument on
      WHEN the virus was introduced in the US, rather than answering the question that was asked: “is the outbreak caused by an influx of immigrants?”

      Snopes completely glosses over the minimal handful of annual cases in prior decades compared to a thousand this year, and focuses almost solely on “detected as far back as 1987.”

      Snopes summarizes with:
      “I think that this really sort of argues against the fact that this is a new virus introduced by anybody”


      “Given that the particular strain of the virus now affecting Americans was recorded in the U.S. as far back as 1987, the claim that the current outbreak of Enterovirus D68 is due solely or primarily to that strain’s being carried to the U.S. by immigrant children is a problematic one.”

      Again, the question was “is it being spread?” – not “is it new?” or “is it newly introduced?”

      Nice sleight of hand there, Snopes

      Use this example if you ever need to document Snopes’ duplicity, unless you have a better one.

    Megan Kelly went to bat against President Putin. She struck out. Never touched him. He gave her 1.5 days of time with him, including according to her own account and hour in which off the record comments about his family (he has two grown daughters), his domestic life. So she had opportunity to get a feel for the man.

    Her interview was a zero.

    I won’t say Putin was too much for her. He’s handled teams of reporters in similar style interviews.
    She was too little and predictable for a man of his skills. The NBC editing in KGB stuff was amateurish.

    June 15th is Putin’s big annual 3-4 hour marathon with the national and international press and the people of Russia. Anything goes. Angry citizens, hateful journalists, whatever. A town hall like you’ve never seen.

    At least she didn’t inject “Assad kills children with sarin gas”. She tried that earlier in the forum setting. That was an hour long bomb with her as moderator.

    The woman is not ready for international prime time.

    She’ll need to do shows in thongs and bikinis to attract ratings.

      This is good…I guess?…If it doesn’t prevent a real Investigation from being done by Session’s DOJ people.

      Does it prevent that?
      I don’t see why the Justice Dept cannot be doing a concurrent investigation into Clinton’s crimes.

      The Senate can have their dog & pony show.
      But there needs to be an investigation done by someone who can Prosecute Her.

          I really feel that Hillary and Oboma will both be in jail before Trumps first term ends. Secessions is getting together an air tight case against both of them now. I feel they got a treasure trove of evidence from Commies FBI office. Time will tell. Thats my sincere prayer they both deserve it.
