Bought Jim Haslam’s Book
Last Wednesday night, on the way home from the office, I stopped at a Pilot store and bought my personal copy of the book Jim Haslam has written, “Co-Piloting.” The forward, written by Mr. Haslam’s son, former governor Bill Haslam, was awesome. I spent the weekend reading the book and it really is a great read. I would recommend it to anyone interested in leadership, business, becoming an entrepreneur, or serving others. You can get your copy at any Pilot store or order from Amazon.
Disparaging Troops Garbage Propaganda
The Atlantic magazine, which has been financially backed by Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of all-round nice billionaire Apple guy, Steve Jobs, has carried a column stating President Trump disparaged American troops as “suckers” and “losers” for joining the military. Naturally, the mainstream media has piled on and some have hysterically cried that Trump “appeared to suggest” his supporters harass the Widow Jobs. As the British would say, it just “rubbish.”
Ask yourself, when was the last time anyone in the mainstream media lauded the military or anyone in it who wasn’t opposed to Donald Trump. To remember that, you’d have to have been alive when John F. Kennedy was President of the United States. I am beginning to see why the socialists want to erase history, because then there’d be no point of reference for anybody about anything. Remember Tulsi Gabbard, the hard-hitting congresswoman from Hawaii who had been in the military who briefly ran for president? Jeez, fellow Democrats and the mainstream media made fun of Gabbard precisely for being in the military. And people, it is possible to say something negative about the late John McCain without it applying to every person who has served in any branch of the military. I supported and voted for John McCain in 2008 when he lost to Barack Obama, but here’s the unvarnished truth: John McCain never got over being upset by Donald Trump being Donald Trump and every single thing he did after that point in time was a reaction. It’s precisely why John McCain betrayed his fellow Republicans in the Senate and the country by being the deciding vote in not repealing ObamaCare, as he had sworn he would do.
Usually, the only time you’d ever hear anything about the military come out of the mouths of Democrats was to complain and suggest the defense budget be cut.
As to the media’s now frenzy of worry about Laurene Powell Jobs being harassed by those awful Trump supporters, keep in mind these are the same folks who don’t give a hoot that people’s businesses and homes are being burned to the ground by anarchists all over the country. These are the same people who steadfastly tell us each evening the “protest”, the rioting, is “mostly peaceful.” These are the same people who tried to burn the liberal mayor of Portland, Ted Wheeler, out of his condo, and didn’t care about destroying the property, or even injuring or killing, women and children and men living in the same condo complex as Ted Wheeler. Not a word of concern about ORDINARY law-abiding Americans, but by golly, let’s tear our hair out and swoon because it “appears” Trump is “suggesting” supporters harass Ms. Jobs.
By the way, Ms. Jobs has donated something like $500,000 to Joe Biden’s campaign thus far, so I reckon she and the Atlantic are pretty much impartial. Here’s what Trump actually wrote on Twitter: “Steve Jobs would not be happy that his wife is wasting money he left her on a failing Radical Left Magazine that is run by a con man (Goldberg) and spews FAKE NEWS & HATE. Call her, write her, let her know how you feel!!!” Wow! Call her, write her, let her know how you feel is harassment? Yet burning and looting is patriotic? And these patriots are now suddenly worried President Trump has sullied the good name of those who have served our country in the military.
John Bolton, the guy who looks like Chumlee from the old Tennessee Tuxedo cartoon, no Trump fan he, has attested to the fact the President said no such thing. But what can we expect from people who lie to our faces every single day? It’s about the usual.
There isn’t a Leftist on Earth who has a scintilla of respect for anyone who has served our country. These folks are just hypocrites.
It’s Alright to Kill “Fascists”
Did you know it’s alright to kill someone if they are a “fascist”? At least it is from a moral perspective according to Erik Loomis, a Rhode Island professor opined it was just peachy keen for a Patriot Prayer supporter to be shot and killed in Portland, Oregon recently. Loomis, made his comments in response to the question, “Why was Michael Reinoehl killed?”, which had been posted on his blog. The post involved the subject of whether Reinhoel, the self-confessed killer of Aaron “Jay” Danielson, had been deliberately murdered by the police. Danielson had been shot on the night supporters of President Trump clashed with protesters supporting Black Lives Matter.
Loomis wrote, “I am extremely anti-conspiracy theory. But it’s not a conspiracy theory at this point in time to wonder if the cops simply murdered him. The police is shot through with fascists from stem to stern. They were openly working with the fascists in Portland, as they were in Kenosha which led to dead protestors.”
If you’re wondering who the fascists are, those would be anyone supporting Donald Trump or any person belonging to the Patriot Prayer group, which was founded by Joey Gibson, a former candidate for the Senate in Washington State and an outspoken conservative. Far-left groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center have tried to characterize the Patriot Prayer organization as an ultra-right hate group. Joey Gibson vehemently denies that accusation.
In his September 4 blog post, Professor Looney wrote, “Michael Reinhoel is the guy who killed the fascist in Portland last week. He admitted it and said he was scared the cops would kill him. Well, now the cops have killed him.”
One person, in the comments section, protested, “Erik, he shot and killed a guy.” Professor Looney replied, “[Reinhoel] killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.”
Reinhoel had described himself as “100% Antifa,” but Professor Looney compared the admitted murderer to the abolitionist John Brown, who did his share of killing and burning. Brown justified his violent means as a way to end slavery.
Professor Looney huffed he would not be intimidated by fascists trying to “cancel” him.
I really can’t see how any sane person could possibly think anything good could come of this. I can’t see how any sane person could possibly approve of Professor Looney or his opinions. John Brown was hanged and America descended into the bloodiest war in its history: the Civil War.
Joe Biden’s Promises to Unions
Joe Biden has about broken the bank with his promises to organized labor. Truth be told, Donald Trump has delivered on about everything organized labor has said was important to it. Let’s face it, the last two presidents unions helped to elect—Bill Clinton and Barack Obama—screwed union members every chance they got with trade treaties. Obama did kinda make it up to them when he and Biden turned over much of the “infrastructure” money to unions, which were then recycled into campaign contributions. I don’t recall any infrastructure work being done, do you? It was Trump who took America out of the dead end treaties that kicked American workers and union members right where it hurt the most.
Biden promised union members on video he would roll back the Right-to-Work laws in 27 states by fiat.
McCormick says Biden not the same
Mike McCormick, was the White House stenographer who worked for Joe Biden from 2011-2017. McCormick told the Washington Free Beacon the ex-vice president doesn’t seem to have the same “mental acuity.” McCormick says the change is noticeable as the ex-vice president is “not the same Joe Biden.”
“It’s a complete difference from what he was in 2017,” McCormick said. “He’s lost a step and he doesn’t seem to have the same mental acuity as he did four years ago.” There were other differences Mike McCormick noticed. “He doesn’t have the energy. He doesn’t have the pace of his speaking. He’s a different guy.”
Apparently, McCormick traveled with the ex-vice president on foreign trips, transcribing Biden’s speeches and certain conversations with foreign leaders. McCormick sadly noted now Biden seems to get “lost” during interviews.
Trump Pulling More Troops Out of Iraq
President Donald Trump is pulling more troops out of Iraq, which is pretty much another thing Democrats talked about, but never did. This month the reduction in the number of troops in Iraq will go down from 5,200 to 3,000.
Los Angeles Health Director Playing Politics
Dr. Barbara Ferrer is the Director of Public Health for Los Angeles and while she’s a doctor, she doesn’t seem all that bright. During a conference call, Dr. Ferrer said the schools wouldn’t reopen in Los Angeles until “after the election.” Wow. Really? Of course someone recorded the call, which ended up being played on a local radio show.
“We don’t realistically anticipate that we would be moving to either tier 2 or to reopening schools until at least after the election, in early November,” Ferrer told school officials and medical staff members. The recording promptly ended up on KFI’s “John & Ken Show.” One of the two hosts wondered what the election had to do with reopening schools? A very good question, John or Ken. The radio hosts speculated perhaps Dr. Ferrer was trying to manipulate the reopening to bolster Democrats in the area. Leftists have been resistant to the idea of reopening much of anything. Would they play politics with the economy and people’s well-being? You betcha!
