Obama: Trump Ran for President to Promote His Hotel Business

OMG this was the funniest thing I have read all day!

“I don’t want to spend too much time on The Donald. Following your lead, I want to show some restraint. Because I think we can all agree that from the start he’s gotten the appropriate amount of coverage befitting the seriousness of his candidacy. I hope you all are proud of yourselves,” Obama told reporters, who cried out for an “Encore” after he originally said he would stop reading Trump jokes.

“The guy wanted to give his hotel business a boost, and now we’re praying that Cleveland makes it through July,” Obama said, referring to possible disturbances that could occur if Trump is denied the nomination.”
BY PATRICK HOWLEY WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Obama said in his remarks at Saturday’s White House Correspondents Dinner that Republican Donald Trump ran for president to promote his hotel business…

‘Don’t Sleep Through the Revolution: A Graduation Message for a Dark Age’ by John W. Whitehead

Narcolepsy in America!

John W. Whitehead, Constitutional Attorney

“The most striking fact about the story of Rip Van Winkle is not that he slept 20 years, but that he slept through a revolution. While he was peacefully snoring up on the mountain, a great revolution was taking place in the world – indeed, a revolution which would, at points, change the course of history. And Rip Van Winkle knew nothing about it; he was asleep.”—Martin Luther King Jr., Commencement Address for Oberlin College

The world is disintegrating on every front—politically, environmentally, morally—and for the next generation, the future does not look promising. As author Pema Chodron writes in When Things Fall Apart:

When the rivers and air are polluted, when families and nations are at war, when homeless wanderers fill the highways, these are the traditional signs of a dark age.

Those coming of age today will face some of the greatest obstacles ever encountered by young…

Learning From Terrorist Tactics: ISIS’ Sniper Propaganda

“They’re making do with whatever they can get their hands on. But if the video is any indicator, Islamic State snipers are a formidable lot despite their limitations.”

The Tactical Hermit

For those of you interested in this subject of Guerilla Snipers and how Propaganda in sniping can often be a valuable weapon in and of itself, I would highly recommend the Book Fry the Brain by John West. -SF


Snipers stalk the sprawling battlefields of Iraq and Syria. Hiding, quietly waiting and squeezing off long-distance kill-shots at unsuspecting human targets, sharpshooters on all sides of the Syrian civil conflict and the war on Islamic State have a greater impact on the fighting’s outcome than their small numbers imply.

For in addition to precisely, selectively killing front-line fighters and leaders, sharpshooters wield disproportionate deterrent value. They’re scary — even rumors of nearby enemy snipers can grind combat operations to a halt.

ISIS knows it. Hence the terror group’s latest propaganda video, chillingly entitled Picking Heads. The slick propaganda piece depicts ragtag militant sharpshooters who, despite apparently inadequate training and equipment, nevertheless…

Encouraging words for the discouraged writer.

If you’re discouraged with your writing, perhaps the following excerpt from Nicole Bianchi’s article (5 Rules for Writing Well) couldn’t have come at a better time for you. &#8220…


Wouldn’t you love it if you could converse with them and get their feedback on how you could improve your writing?

In 1956, C. S. Lewis did just that for a young fan.

The British author of the beloved Chronicles of Narnia series received countless letters from children all around the world. He was careful to respond to each one. A collection of some of these responses can be found in the slim volume Letters to Children.

Among them are several of his letters to Joan, a young girl who wrote to him from the United States. She sent her first letter to Lewis in 1954. They would end up exchanging over twenty letters.

Blocked by Republican Party

Norfolk Republican Party
Republican Party of Virginia
National Republican Party have all stopped allowing me to COMMENT or LIKE their posts on Facebook.

Why is the #GOP scared of ME?

I have never used curse words on their sites. I have, on their FB pages, repeatedly questioned their stupidity and their loyalty to WE THE PEOPLE. I guess the plus is they didn’t go so far as to BLOCK me from the pages all together.

I do find this to be just another example of why the Republicans are failing as a Party! If this is how they treat a registered Republican, an advocate of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and a born and bred American who has shown loyalty to this Nation essentially my entire life — I can’t imagine why independents and liberals would NOT want to identify as a Republican.

Crusader Corner: France Refuses to use Israeli Data Mining Tech That Could Have Helped Prevent Paris Massacre

Later the officials stated that there was no ban on Israli products

I call BS!!

The technology was reportedly offered right after the Charlie Hebdo shootings in January 2015, prior to the Paris attacks in November that killed 130 people. The expert believes that such technology could have prevented the deadly attacks in the French capital, and may even have been able to allow the Brussels bombings of March 2016 to be foiled.

“Government agencies struggling to foil terror attacks need access to technologies that allow them to connect their data fragments, making it possible to handle daily data challenges,” the expert said. “With this system, all data can then be easily navigated, processed and represented by employing a set of powerful analytic tools and unique algorithms.”

The Tactical Hermit

It appears that France’s combination of non-existent immigration laws combined with a fear of being labeled “islamophobes” is not enough…they had to throw in good ole’ fashioned Anti-Semitism just for good measure, which has created the perfect breeding ground for terrorism to run rampant. Sound Familiar America? -SF


Better to shun and demonize Israel than to protect citizens from jihad mass murder.

“France refused Israeli tech that could have foiled Paris attacks – security expert,” RT, April 26, 2016:

French intelligence reportedly rejected an offer to purchase terrorist-scanning and tracking software from an Israeli company that could have helped to prevent the November 2015 attacks in Paris, a security expert has said.

Certain “data-mining technology” which would have helped the Paris authorities to “connect all the dots” in the terrorist community was offered to the General Directorate for Internal Security (DGSI), according to an Israeli counter-terror specialist familiar with…
