    Woo Hoo y’all, looks like 2020 may be shaping up for the Rats. John Kerry’s handlers have been having reporters spontaneously ask him if he’s considering a 2020 run for the Presidency. I’ve seen at least three spur-of-the-moment requests by talking heads ask him if he’s considering it – AND he has a book coming out in 2019. Ever since the Clintons’ ghostwritten screeds in their promotional spin-up in the 90s its almost a giveaway.
    But wait! Note how Michelle Obama’s got a book coming out. She’s been keeping a steady presence surging the promotional wave, been criticizing Trump more and a book? Just think of it, a Hillary/Barry chimera with the press hailing her as the savior of the Obama legacy AND being not only the first female president but a black female president. For much of the snowflake political herd who can’t tell the Constitution from DC Metro schedule THAT would be a reason to vote. Just think, she could finish the work her hubby started in creating a multi-front racial/religious civil war!

    • Both of my maternal grandparents passed in the last couple of years.

      One of my mom’s sisters just sent me a USB thumb-drive, loaded with pictures she scanned and encoded. My grandfather was a huge photography buff. It was his hobby away from his job, all his life.

      I haven’t looked at it, yet. My mom’s sis did so much work, scanning these images.

        • I learned the cuss, “G_D D_MN IT ALL!” from him. He lost his Very Expensive camera at the K’Zoo airport. He did find it again, but that phrase never left me. He said it SO many times. I was like 10. I don’t ever say things like that any more, but I used to. That’s a very bad thing to say. I think either Menagerie or Barnhardt laid that all out one time, about how saying that is like an invocation.

          It’s just a camera. Wish I could have piped up with that, glad I didn’t.

    What is so sad, so heart breaking is that when this happens again in our America, it will not bring our people together even temporally. The Left is prepared for the next attack, they are prepared to use it as a political tool against America, Americans, against freedom, against the common man, they are prepared to use the next attack to divide us further and to enhance their lifestyle of greed and power.

    I have no doubt that the elitists hope everyday for another demon made attack on America. With ever natural disaster the MSM and the political elites wait and hope with bated breath for the numbers of dead to be massive so that the dead can be used as a political tool.

    Meanwhile in the UK Kamran Hussain the ISIS imam/devil is being released from prison after serving 3 years of a 6 year sentence. Who is Kamran Hussain? The devil who called for the death of non muslims, the devil who told muslim children it is better to die a martyr killing infidels than to achieve academic success, he is a devil who is unrepentant and still believes in the death of all who are not muslim.

    May God bring a holy curse them all.

    May God forgive us.

      It’s hard to believe we elected a Hussein for 8 years. Mark Twain and George Orwell couldn’t ever have been able to sell that story, on their best days.

      Both would have agreed that’s just crazy talk. America would never do THAT.

      • The first I saw of this: I was living, just out of mental hospitals for major depression, in a tiny apartment, a rooming house, in St. Joe, MI. I worked, via a temp agency, at a Sears Rebate center, doing data entry for people who got rebates because they bought something from Sears. I didn’t have a radio, or TV, or internet. I was reading the Left Behind series, LaHaye and Jenkins, and had just started reading the second or third book (when Chicago was being fictionally bombed), and I had to go to work, third shift. Five or so in the afternoon I see the twin towers burning, while walking to work, in a newspaper box.

        I couldn’t even complete my shift. I may have been the last person in the United States to know that this even happened.

        I don’t read Christian fiction any more, either.

        I remember just a couple of months earlier, in the last Mental Ward I’ll ever visit, some phyche-lady told me, in no uncertain terms, that there is no such thing as evil.

        This happened, and I will never forget her, her profession, and what she said. She’s either ignorant, or evil.

        I try and steer kids away from that profession. It’s one of the bad ones.

        Something I learned about Stephen King,

        As a young child, King witnessed a horrifying accident. β€œThe event
        occurred when I was barely four,” King recounted. β€œAccording to Mom, I
        had gone off to play at a neighbor’s house β€” a house that was near a
        railroad line. About an hour after I left, I came back, she said, β€˜as
        white as a ghost.’ I would not speak for the rest of the day. I would
        not tell her why I’d not waited to be picked up or phoned that I wanted
        to come home. I would not tell her why my chum’s mom hadn’t walked me
        back, but had allowed me to come home alone. It turned out that the kid
        I had been playing with had been run over by a freight train while
        playing on or crossing the tracks… My mom never knew if I had been
        near him when it happened. But I have no memory of the incident at all,
        only of having been told about it some years after the fact.”

        I read a more in depth account of this but I don’t remember where, I think it may have been psychological journal. Anyhow, from what I remember King did not speak for a lot longer than a day and the boys were missing for a while, it happened under odd circumstances. << That is the best of my memory and I'm not up to hunting it down, King IMEHO is one sick puppy.

        I didn't know until I read it here that one of his books end with a child orgy. Sick sick individual.

        The sick bastards are really becoming unhinged and more delusional than ever before. The brains of havoc caused under Reagan's presidency was down right mild compared to the frenzied Trump Derangement Syndrome.

        Just wow.

        • I realized Stephen King’s sickness years ago. Quit reading him. Quit reading Anne Rice. Quit reading anything that wasn’t good-good. And I mean that like Oprah meant rape-rape. Is it actually good? In every sense of the word? I’ll read it.

          These authors are MK-Ultraing a whole population. De-sensitizing them. Showing them how hip and cool it is to kill. And they do. Most Stephen King episodes are Stephen King killing the people he wants dead. He’s God, in his sights. He lives like that.

          Bless his heart.

            Never read either of them, I did see The Shinning. SMH. I read about King and the train incident a long time ago. I didn’t know that he wrote Carrie. I’ve never been a horror fan so that is a good thing.


    • Lucille says:

      What pathetic sicko thinking! And just how is he going to destroy her? Literally kill her? She’s lived such a circumspect life, I’m sure they can’t bring her up on sexual harassment charges, or actually being a part of some secret white hate group (oh, that’s right, she’s Republican so she’s already a supremacist).

      I’m glad I’ve never read any of his books or seen any of the films made from them except for CARRIE, though I’ve seen clips, of course, as part of my job….but then I was a Dem for 40 years…and, honestly, even though we were lefties, we were never as crazed as King and his ilk.

      Hope the President tweets about it.

      I feel the same way about Anne Rice.

      Quite familiar with their work, and with demons. I don’t read either, for many years now, but I know. Both are anathema to good. Best to avoid reading them.

    From Clarice Feldman:

    Democrats: ‘Let’s Do the Time Warp Again’

    Looking back on the week’s events, it occurs to me that the Democrats’ new theme song should be “Let’s Do the Time Warp Again” as they reprise the demagogic lies and smear tactics that once worked for them but are now failing for anyone with a memory longer than a week or two. On the other hand, watching the Russian collusion fizzle, it might be “I’m Waiting for Ships that Never Come In.”

      I know we live in extraordinary times, dangerous times but it is also a time of great hope because we have President Trump and a nation of #Walkaway folks, patriots and people who have long been “woke”. And because the elites have been forced to show their true faces. Scott Walker no different than Barack Obama. Who knew? Citizen Trump knew.

      What makes me smile when I read this Time Warp piece from Clarice is the simple fact that President Trump has been saying this from day one, “The democrats will lose because they only have one game plan and they don’t know how to change.” The democrats and their accomplice republicans have become complacent they have no new weapons in their war chest and President Trump weaponizes everything and anything he lays his hands on. He turns pressers into state of the art warfare and then shoots another enemy between the eyes while the group is still scratching its collective head over the latest strike.

      Truly a great time to be alive.

      I will control myself here and not use an Art of War quote πŸ™‚ !

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Oh, dear. I just started watching Harris Faulkner Town Hall. I figured it would be interesting. She usually does a good job interviewing. I don’t usually watch anything political after 9:00 PM for obvious reasons. Darn if my blood pressure didn’t spike when a woman on the panel who is an illegal alien who was brought here as a child and is now in the DACA program didn’t said her little piece and indicate (haughtily) that she would be insulted if referred to as an illegal alien. And, she did it in such a way as to say they had better not use that term at all. My response is unprintable. She also. Bless.Her.Little.Heart. is against the wall. Haven’t heard that explanation yet.
