Apple hits trillion dollar value and it ought to scare the crap out of You

August 14, 2018

Last Thursday Apple, the iPhone maker became the first publicly traded U.S. company to reach $1 trillion in valuation. I guess all the millennials and socialists these days who hate capitalism and big corporations ~who all have iPhones, are able to overlook Apple as a villain because they like their products so much. And that’s just the problem. We are being led around by our noses ~whether or not we get them out of our phones or not.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We’re all hooked on technology. But this should scare the crap out of us. Do you think it was coincidence that Apple, Facebook, YouTube and Spotify have taken action against Alex Jones (banning him permanently), all on the same day? Are they in collusion? BTW, these are private companies, so it’s not a 1st Amendment issue. They can do whatever they want. It’s only government that cannot block free speech (though they do it every day). Jones is a conspiracy theorist and pretty far out there sometimes, but why the pile on? Because they can. Alex Jones talked often about The Trilateral Commission. The line between conspiracy and truth is a blurry one. Senator Diane Feinstein (who we just learned had a Chinese spy as a driver for 20 years!) is a longtime member of the Trilateral Commission.

Apple owns more US Treasurys than many major countries and has more cash reserves than the US government, in fact the government is decidedly in the red whereas Apple as of April 2017 showed a Shareholder Equity of +$134 billion. According to CNBC.com if Apple were a foreign country, CEO Apple Tim Cook might have considerable political clout. Ya think?!

Some people are starting to see the danger of these globalist corporations and the future they envision. BTW, none of these big tech companies are conservative or believe in the Constitution. For example Google has listed ‘Nazism’ as the ideology of the California Republican Party.

Patrick Wood is one who does see the danger of these globalists, these technocrats. Technocracy is not a political system, but a system of societal control in order to manage all resources and all consumption. (First Amazon sold books, now they sell and deliver everything -including our food). Google, Apple, Facebook and other giant data hoarding companies are all on the same path. The synchronized shut-down of Alex Jones was a warning sign. When they want to flip the switch on us they can and they will. Facebook, Google and all the rest are surveillance companies rebranded as “Social Media” (Edward Snowden).

Was Ron Paul a mean old man or a good steward of our Constitution??

August 13, 2018

Of course Ron Paul is no longer in Congress (though his son Rand is a Senator) and these discussions took place a few years ago, but it’s good to highlight when some in Congress used to do their job. I heard this on a recent Adam Corolla show podcast. His is the #1 podcast on iTunes, so you may want to check it out.

But I digress. Congressman Paul used to have a sign on his desk that read:

“Don’t steal, the government hates competition.”

Ron Paul voted “No” on awarding Congressional Gold Medals to anyone

Paul voted against awarding the Congressional Gold Medal to Mother Teresa all the while extolling her virtues and praising her good works. He has also voted against giving the medal to Rosa Parks, the Pope, Tony Blair, the Dalai Lama, Frank Sinatra, South African President Nelson Mandela, Arnold Palmer, Charles Schultz (creator of the Peanuts cartoon), and untold others. He always voted against awarding the Congressional Medals to anyone and he was usually the lone dissenting vote.

Was Ron Paul just an angry, stingy old man? No he just disapproved of spending government money on such awards.  I don’t know how much gold is actually in these medals, and most are probably bronze these days but that’s not the point. According to Ron Paul Forums, Paul believed that every member of Congress who voted in favor of awarding the Congressional Gold Medal ought to contribute enough money to raise the funds for the medal, since the implied powers of Congress don’t include robbing the American people to pay for feel-good political gestures. Can I get an “Amen”?

He believes in the US Constitution and this spending is not authorized by the Constitution. On C-SPAN he said,

If you’re willing to bend the rules a little bit for seemingly unimportant issues and small amounts of money, you’ll do it for the big issues such as war. So if you want to believe in the Constitution and the Republic, you have to obey and rules and laws all the time. You can’t just pick and choose…”

He swore an oath just like all the rest of them did, so how’d we get where we are today?

Trading a serial sex-offender (Rep. John Conyers) for a Socialist Islamist

August 10, 2018

I’ve been sounding the clarion call trying to alert you all as to the Creeping Sharia going on all around us. Without a Republican opponent, Rashida Tlaib is virtually guaranteed a seat in Congress and now we’ll have the first Muslim woman elected to Congress. She’s an anti-Israel Palestinian, and there was no Republican opponent. How does that happen?) Boy was the RNC asleep at the wheel here or what?

And why are we supposed to so thrilled with the “first” this or that? Didn’t Hillary already wear out that theme thoroughly? Apparently not, so here we have a Socialist Islamist going to Congress representing Michigan replacing Rep. John Conyers, the 89-year-old Democrat who retired in December, citing health reasons. (Yeah, it wasn’t gonna be healthy for him to hang around because of all allegations of sexual misconduct.)

Tlaib received received endorsements from organizations including Greater Detroit Democratic Socialists of America, the DSA-dominated Our Revolution, the DSA-influenced Justice Democrats, Democracy for America, People for Bernie, Progressive Change Campaign Committee, and Arab American Democratic Action Fund, as well as filmmaker Michael Moore (also a DSA member).

Some of her bona fides in Socialism circles include serving on the board of the Detroit-based Sugar Law Center. Named in honor of legendary pro-communist labor lawyer Maurice Sugar, the center is an affiliate of the National Lawyers Guild, a nationwide alliance of leftist lawyers originally established by the Communist Party USA.

According to The Epoch Times, Tlaib is also well connected to the Muslim left, particularly the radical Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). She has attended CAIR events in Michigan and in California.

A Marxist-leaning, pro-Palestine radical is about to enter the U.S. Congress. To which congressional committees might she be appointed? Homeland security? Intelligence? Foreign affairs? Education? Judiciary? If members of Congress had to undergo security background checks to serve on sensitive congressional committees, it’s likely Tlaib would run into all sorts of problems. But we no longer have any checks & balances in our government.

More and more Islamic candidates in our US Elections

August 8, 2018

Abdul El-Sayed lost his primary election bid for governor of Michigan, but it doesn’t mean he’ll be going away. He would have been thrilled to win and move forward to the general election in November, but now he’s got a solid group of supporters, fundraisers and followers who will serve as his team next time around. El-Sayed was recently a special guest speaker at a fundraiser for a Nation of Islam (NOI)-affiliated mosque.

Abdul El-Sayed & Linda Sarsour

He has often been alongside radical left-wing activist and sharia apologist Linda Sarsour (co-founder of the Pussy march in Washington), in fact he made her his campaign manager. The Muslim Center he helps raise funds for has several ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

According ClarionProject.org, a court in the UK has just ruled according to sharia law for the first time. There are some in the USA that think we should have sharia law apply in some instances. The Michigan physician arrested for performing female genital mutilation (FGM) is still fighting her case with plenty of support.

Ilhan Omar, running for State Representative in Minnesota to replace Muslim Keith Ellison

CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations (and a Muslim Brotherhood sponsored group) has been fundraising for Ilhan Omar, who is running for Congress in Minnesota. Omar, who in 2016 became the first Somali-American in the country elected to a state legislature, now seeks to succeed Ellison as a US Congresswoman is vying for controversial Congressman Keith Ellison’s seat in the House of Representatives as he moves toward his aspiration to become the state’s attorney general. You see they get elected to lesser positions, often in local politics (school board, city council, etc.), get a little experience and name recognition and then move on up into higher political positions where presumably they will have more influence. Don’t give them an inch because this is their goal of Creeping Sharia, infiltrating all aspects and institutions of American life to eventually seize power from within.

Remember when Great Britain used to be Great?

August 3, 2018

Sorry everyone, I haven’t been blogging much lately. I’ve been busy ~and my old back pain has reared it’s ugly head so I’ve been trying to stay off the computer as that is what bothers me the most (besides golf!).

But back to Great Britain. They’ve gone soft on Islam and terrorists and have opened their arms wide to the migrants flowing in from everywhere. It’s not doing them any good and just as most of Europe has, they’ve taken the appeasement route. The story of Tommy Robinson is a good example of how freedom of speech, due process and the rule of law are all dead in the UK, much as it is here in America.

His crime? Reporting on the Muslim sex-grooming gangs accused of raping hundreds of children.

He spoke out about Islam. This is not allowed in the UK. It’s getting more and more that way here in the USA. You cannot speak out about Muslims or illegal immigrants or you are branded. British authorities purposely put him in the prison with the highest Muslim population hoping that he would be murdered in prison.

More background on Tommy Robinson can be found here. He has been released from prison, but I am sure we have not heard the last of him.

The fear of being branded “racist” and “islamophobic” has destroyed Britain as a free society. Is this what we can look forward to in America?

With the wind at his back

June 26, 2018

The Supreme Court today announced their ruling on President Trump’s travel ban, leaving egg on the face of Hawaii (and more specifically, Attorney General Doug Chin who lead the country in challenging President Trump’s authority to institute the ban. The decision came down 5/4 upholding the restricted travel from eight Muslim-majority countries (out of over 50 by the way). If it had been anti-Muslim bias wouldn’t he have included all Muslim-majority countries? And why would Venezuela be on the list?

Trump is vindicated saying,

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution.”

According to Breitbart.com, Trump also recommitted his promise to defend the United States and vowed to fight for a secure immigration system. His stand on immigration is likely the single biggest issue that won him the presidency. Remember when X-President Obama told President Elect Trump that North Korea would be his biggest problem? No thanks to him and many previous presidents who did nothing but placate and appease “Rocket-man”. But it truly seems the Donald has a handle on that problem or at least is working toward a lasting solution. I just read yesterday that Kim Jong-un in a sign of détente has cancelled an annual “anti-US imperialism” rally marking the start of the Korean War. The month of anti-US Korean War-focused events designed to strengthen nationalism and unity. Now it seems he is wisely more interested in making friends with the USA. He is a dictator, a liar and a thug and most certainly a human-rights abuser, but the whole USA-Korea thing doesn’t seem like the near disaster it was a month ago.

But immigration and everything having to do with visas, the border, etc., is way outta hand. With today’s Supreme Court ruling and the wind at his back, I think Trump’s next move should be to halt all border crossings for as long as it takes for Congress to do their job and clean it up. In The Hill this morning Trump said of all the things we inherited, immigration makes the least sense. It is a hodge-podge of laws put together over years and years.

“We have to change it. It’s so simple:  It’s called, ‘I’m sorry you can’t come in’. You have to go in through a legal process.”

“Read a damn book, you Idiots!”

June 21, 2018

This is Ben Shapiro’s (the Daily Wire) response to the lefty loons known as the Democratic Party and the Media, comparing Trump’s immigration policy to Nazi policy. And let’s be clear, this family separation policy is NOT a Trump policy! It was an Obama-era 9th Circuit Court ruling! The Nazi policy BTW, was to murder children and parents.

Former CIA chief General Michael Hayden is among the idiots as is former First Lady Laura Bush who likened the detention centers to internment camps.

Eighty-nine year old David Tuck was enslaved by the Nazis and survived multiple concentration camps. He can tell you a thing or two about real Nazis. When he was 10 years old the Nazis invaded his native Poland. Being a Jew he was sent to one of many Jewish ghettos and later to several Nazi labor camps. When the Americans liberated his camp, Güsen II, David weighed 78 pounds. Democratic Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, another of the many idiots Shapiro refers to, likened America’s immigration policy to the “cattle cars of Nazi Germany.” Tuck could not believe it when he heard that.

 “They know nothing of the Holocaust. They are politicians, looking to get paid,”

When asked to compare the American border detainment facilities to actual concentration camps, Tuck said, “These are country clubs.” After the American Army freed him, he desperately wanted to become an American. It took five years of recuperation, paperwork and applications but Tuck finally made it and has lived here ever since. He is the type of immigrant that appreciates America and does not have his hand out for freebies. Anyone who compares the detention facilities to Nazi concentration camps does not deserve your respect. In fact they deserve nothing but scorn.
