    I’m watching the memorial service for 9/11. Tears streaming down my face for all we lost. For all who were lost.

    Just reported that Hillary was there and left early due to a medical condition, a colleague of a Fox reporter said she fainted and they were headed to the hospital. It happened away from the press. Word has it that she fainted, stumbled nearly fell and was helped into her van by her SS detail.

          She is balancing. Obviously the press knew she was there given all the pictures of her emerging. She is using her feet like a balancing beam. Try standing like that. It is a learned technique.

          Obviously everyone at the scene had been vetted or that “random” little girl would not have been allowed to be so near HRC.

          HRC had to get out in public ASAP, problem is she still did’t look well. Why would anyone let an almost 70 year old reptilian like HRC walk unaccompanied after falling over? When have we ever seen her that independent. The horse and pony show is well on the way.

          We’ll probably see her zooming around tomato plants AKA the Godfather and his grandson soon to show what exception health she is in as she chases Charlotte around.

          Apologies to Vito Corleone who had more love in his little finger than Hillary has for all of humanity.

          Or maybe she is on her way for a tryout at the NYC Ballet Conservatory 😜

              Yeah, I know, but can she walk and chew gum at the same time 🤔. My guess is that she was administered some drug that steadied her for a bit but she still needed to make a quick appearance and move on.

              In all honestly I have volunteered with the mentally ill and her stance reminded me of people who are unsteady in their reality. I do not think Hillary has a delusional mental illness but I do believe she is going to have a nervous breakdown.

                You know, that thought has been in my mind. She may be becoming aware that her lies are not being believed. She may be seeing the writing on the wall, too. Her campaign is not going well. She screws up, Bill screws up, her lackeys are being found out. And, her health is failing and she still has all these wonderful plans to sell off more of the U.S. I wouldn’t be surprised if she had a total nervous breakdown.

    I hope no one minds if I say this here, I was reading a thread next door, and it went haywire.. and I was really saddened. It was a very touching story about the Fireman’s Friar, and I never got a chance to say thanks… (to Menagerie) Maybe I will go back and do that…

    It has been a day of it. Menage, I enjoyed your post on Father Mychal and am glad SD reposted it sans the Catholic bashers et al (especially as there were comments in the 2nd thread from at least 1 priest and others that wanted to read it.) Thank you for running it again (for me!) In other news, a lot of them sumb!tches got sent to spamhell today. I see a future there for many more of them.

    Seen on Facebook:

    Republicans think that the battle with the left is over issues like these:

    Personal Responsibility
    Pork Barrel Spending
    War & Peace
    Civil Rights
    The environment

    (But)… these are debated WITHIN a constiutional system. This is the game on the surface. The left is playing on a different level. They are not debating policy within the system, they are trying to alter the system itself.

    The REAL game is a list of issues about the system itself. This second list shows a much deeper level of understanding of the left and it’s tactics – a reality that many on the center right won’t name or acknowledge. The right mocks the left because they can’t call Islamic Terrorism, Islamic Terrorism, and then we turn around and won’t use the correct words to label leftism. These issues are not what’s debated in the mainstream media, but what leftist activists debate and study among themselves. How many of these terms are elected republicans familiar with? Not just a dictionary definition. If I asked republican officials to explain these terms and what they mean to the left and how this affects their strategy and tactics and how they relate to one another, could these officials do so without further research?

    Cultural Marxism, Marcuse & The Frankfurt School
    Hegemony (Patriarchy, White Privilege, Cisgender, etc)
    Critical Theory
    Critical Race Theory
    Liberation from Oppression
    Liberation Theology
    Structural Functionalism – Systems of Oppression
    Social Construct
    Political Correctness
    Social Justice – Food Justice, environmental Justice, etc.
    Antonio Gramsci
    Social Constructs
    Agenda 21 – Sustainability
    Moral Relativism
    Hegel & the Dialectic / Dialectic materialism
    Scientific socialism
    Long March thru the Institutions

    For example, Gay marriage appears to be an issue of Civil rights – an end in and of itself. But actually to the hard left, it’s a an issue of Critical Theory and Social Justice. Not an end, but a tactic of attack against the foundations of the Republic.

    Few republicans could explain what I just said. They just haven’t studied Marxist tactics enough to know. It’s filled with jargon, front groups, front issues.

    So, no I don’t blame Trump for not knowing this. I think dozens of friends of mine on facebook could answer a quiz on the above topics better than EVERY elected republican in congress.

    But whereas they all cave to it, Trump instinctively fights back. Not intellectually, but on a gut level that he’s on the right side.

      It seems to me that arguing something intellectually that is based on a lie or falsehood of some type is a waste of time. So, I think Trump’s fighting back from the gut level makes sense to me. I am not very intellectual anyway, though.

      Ludwig von Mises’s Socialism An Economic and Sociological Analysis lays this all out.
      Proofs of Conspiracy- John Robison 4th Ed (1798) hits every tenet of modern socialism while describing the conspiracy behind the French revolution and the riots across Europe in the 1790’s.

    Maybe this is of no interest to anyone, but I am still watching the Downton Abbey marathon and I noticed a guy who is supposed to be American who has this strange accent. I have noticed this on a couple of other shows when they have a British actor playing an American. It is a weird accent, which you would never hear in America. I guess I now know what the English think when they watch a movie with the American actors supposedly speaking with a British accent. LOL

      I watched the first season of Sons of Anarchy because so many people sang its praises. I was not a fan as I thought they were all terrible people and didn’t care if they all died.

      Anyhow I thought that Jax (Charlie Hunnam) had a very formal speaking style, very odd inflections and nuances to his speech. It turned out that he is Brit and he said in an interview that he felt like the first two seasons he did all his acting in his throat because he wasn’t comfortable with the American accent.

      So, maybe just someone who is learning? I don’t know as I’ve never watched Dowton Abbey.

        I have noticed this same accent on As Time Goes By and Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. I think it is the American that is taught in the British (or maybe only one) acting school. Sometimes they actually use an American actor so you wouldn’t hear it. I just happened to notice the similarity in the accent that all these were using.

        LOL Someone recommended Sons of Anarchy to me, too. I opted out. It is not good when you don’t care if the characters live or die. I had a problem with the Matrix, since I really didn’t care what happened to the guy who was running around being afraid and doing things. My son said I was snoring after the first 15 min. I went to see Tron with a friend who also complained about my snoring.
